Friday Round Up – October 18, 2013

Is anyone else shocked that it’s already October 18?  Where has 2013 gone?  I’ve found myself writing 2014 a couple times at work lately — where in the heck is that coming from?

PLEASE SLOW DOWN 2013! I’m not ready to see you go yet!

Anyway — moving on.  Time for the Friday Round up 🙂

Favorite Run


My trail run Wednesday.  Beautiful, and thankful to be back on my feet ❤

Favorite Eat

My sammie from Masterpiece yesterday.  Ahhh ahi ❤ (and no, there’s no cheese! It’s an amazing Asian slaw 🙂

Favorite Moment


It’s a tie —

  1. lacing up and running a few miles with minimal issues!
  2. the moment I left the apartment to pick up Zach from the airport.  I love the excitement of picking him up from the air port after he’s been gone.

And of course: A round up of some of my other eats of the week 🙂

Some fun treats, lots of salads and sandwiches as a bachelorette this week 🙂

Friday Favorites

  1. A positive mindset:  I’ve been trying really hard to keep a positive mindset this week and I’ve grown to really appreciate how much that can influence so many other aspects of your life.
  2. My furballs: They make me so happy
  3. Once again BEING HEALTHY: goes without being said.
  4. My family: they’re amazingly supportive, and always my favorite 🙂 ❤
  5. Honey crisp apples: I’ve been eating them daily and am just OBSESSED.

YOUR TURN: Question of the afternoon: One Friday Favorite today 🙂

Friday Round Up September 27

It’s that time again 🙂  Time for my round up and Friday Favorites of the Week!

Favorite Run


I’d have to say My Treadmill 10k to be honest

I really wanted it to be outdoors — but the Colorado heat wasn’t on my side that day.  Either way, it felt very easy in comparison to other runs lately and I ended feeling very strong.  Always an awesome feeling 🙂

Favorite Treat


My surprise find of the week:  Starburst Candy Corn!  Hello Halloween candy season!! My favorite time of year 🙂

Favorite Eat

My favorite eats of the week were probably our Double Date night at La Loma , but our Mexican night at home put up a GOOD fight.

Favorite Moment

My parents shared some exciting news with me this week — and that is probably the moment that stands out most for me.  Unfortunately, I have to be vague about it for the time being — but everyone send positive and happy vibes their way for me, OK? 🙂


And of course:  I wouldn’t leave you all without some highlights from the week of eats.

And finally — Five Friday Favorites 

  • Apples! –  I am LOVING everything apple with the new apple season 🙂
  • Being Married — I have a pretty stellar husband 🙂
  • The Blog — I’ve had some great people reach out to me via the blog this week — and just feel lucky to have started this little blog 🙂
  • Hot coffee — the cool mornings have made my morning cup of joe that much more enjoyable
