Friday Loves #26

Happy Friday! Isit weird that I’m already excited for next weekend? Thanksgiving is almost here!!! I’m definitely excited!  Nate and I are going on a date night tomorrow night and then on Saturday we are taking our camp interns out for lunch and a movie. So lots of adult time, which will be fun! We’re going to see the Hunger Games–I’m so excited!

Finding this cool graphic led me to a Buzzfeed quis and I want you all to know that my “hunger games soul mate” is Katniss. So yeah…I mean, I’m not upset.

Moving on. Let’s get to the rest of the loves….

Healthier One-Pot Chicken Dinners via The Housewife in Training–Yes, chicken. Yes, one pot. This is my kind of recipe round up.

Almond Joy Oatmeal Cookies via Amy’s Healthy Baking–Yum! These look amazing and they have no refined sugar and all whole wheat flour! Gosh, they look good!

Cranberry Pumpkin Pancakes via This Gal Cooks–Pumpkin pancakes are one of my favorite things! The addition of cranberries puts them over the top. #delish

Life Loves

I’m trying to be positive about the snow. But it is hard. So much snow, so soon. So I guess I love that I don’t live in Buffalo. 

Also, loving time with Miss Layla, as always. She is trying to clap and wave “Hi”! She melts my heart.


I’m loving getting my “Santa” on for Christmas! I love shopping and planning to shop! Look for a fitness gift guide coming your way on Monday! Yay!

What are you loving this week? How much snow is too much snow for you? Do you run or hike or bike outside when it’s snowy?

Friday Loves #25

Happy Friday! This has been a big week for us! We moved most of our stuff on Monday, and while moving a short distance has a lot of perks, including we can move a carload at a time, that can also be a bad thing because it seems like we’ve been moving forever. But, like I said, the end is […] more
