Friday Fun Round Up

Words cannot express how excited I am for the weekend ahead.  Not for anything super exciting in particular (although we are going skiing for the first time this season), more to just reset and relax before the craziness of the holiday’s hit.

With that said: Time for My Friday Round Up!

Favorite Run



Without a doubt my night run with Zach.   I am still adjusting to running in the dark, but there was something about the quiet and stillness of the dark that made it relaxing for me and the boys :).  Now if only my legs hadn’t been lead…

Favorite Treat



The pistachio cake from Whole foods.  I was SO excited to pick that up yesterday, and am crossing my fingers that Zach doesn’t finish it off today while I’m at work 🙂

Favorite Eat

Last nights meal…honestly.  I don’t know if it was all the love the hubbie but into it, or if it was just darn good.  But seriously, the chicken was perfectly done and the acorn squash and quinoa?  Hello!

Favorite Moment



Date night 🙂  Man I love date night, and Freshcraft treated us well this week!

And of course, a quick round up of the rest of the eats for the week 🙂  Because I love to make you drool!

And finally, my friday favorites and things I’m thankful for this Friday

  • Snow — yes, it’s cold and I am not a cold blooded girl.  But man it’s pretty, the hubby gets all excited to ski, and it just signifies so much for me.  Love it
  • Forgiveness — yup.  I am thankful for forgiveness this week.
  • Running — because my running shoes have gotten me through a lot lately!
  • Friends — Hello amazing weekend with Friends last weekend.  Such a great reminder of the amazing people I have in my life.
  • QuestBars- – just found em, and love them.  If you want a healthy protein bar, you must find these!  I found mine at GNC!

Question of the Afternoon:  What is one Friday favorite from this week for you?

  1. This reminds me that I need to drag Kyle out on a run with me 🙂 STOP torturing me with pictures of that cake! Oh wait, it’s okay cause you’re shipping me one 😉 I’ve been wanting to try Quest bars for months now but I was waiting for someone I know to try them first and give me the deats lol. So it’s a go haha? Have fun skiing!!!

  2. Lots of good eats there!
    Fav. moment this week was today, my husband received some pretty awesome news via snail mail. It’s been a long time in the progress, so we’re really excited about it (can’t talk/blog about it for a few weeks 😉
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Your pictures are making me hungry! It all looks so delicious! I will have to give those Quest bars a try. I have a few friends who like them. Always looking for good food! 🙂

  4. My best runs are in the dark, setting off at about 9pm on a Monday evening. Alas, winter is coming (as the House of Stark would put it) and I can see a period of non-running looming soon. Cold and (reasonable) rain, fine; snow and ice, no way. I can cope with cold, wet legs but I’d rather not risk breaking one!
