Friday favs

by Kim on February 21, 2014

We got a little spring teaser this week.

It was 45 DEGREES on Wednesday when I left work (translated into February in Wisconsin terms, that’s 80). This kid celebrated with a little reverse shoveling–aka moving snow ONTO the driveway.

Yesterday, something crazy happened: it rained. When you live in the midwest, that’s something you generally don’t see for a solid 6 month stretch. The first shower always sounds weird–like someone you know just started speaking a different language one day.

But we all know a teaser when we see one. 24 hours later, we’re back to the snow and cold we all know and hate (some areas around us are even getting brutal storms).

Anyway, to show the weather what’s up, I’m responding today with a super positive post. Winter be damned! I always love perusing people’s Friday Favs lists, so I thought I’d lighten things up with a list of my own today.

But first! The winners of the Adventure to Fitness contest are:

Check your email, ladies! Hope your kiddos love the program.

Now, onto the list! Here are a few things I’ve been loving this week…

This Paleo coffee cake banana bread (complete with delicious crumbly topping)

FF10

This outfit

FF11

The long floral tank top + cardigan + boots + skinny pants combo is my current go-to ensemble.

Like, picture a much less cute version of that, and that’s me 9 days out of 10.

This entryway decor

FF12

I’ve never actually had an entryway space that could physically contain something cute like this, but for some reason, I’m still constantly ogling them on Pinterest.

These baby skinny sweatpants

FF8

Sadly, the etsy designer seems to no longer be making them, but for you crafty/seamstressy types out there: here’s a business opp for you. I’ll be first in line.

This runner’s closet

FF5

This neon color trend has to be the best thing that ever happened to running gear. If you can’t justify the purchase, just remind yourself that you practically glow in the dark with this stuff on. It’s for safety.

This workout from Julie

FF7

This top

FF9

And her hair. Can I have her hair too?

These awards for everyday peopleFF1

Let’s celebrate mediocrity!

This…

FF6

I think I struggle with the “collapsing weight” spot.

This super simple workout

SONY DSC

I’m not sure if I’m convinced that this burns 100 cals, but I’ve seen this exactly lineup in a few different places online. Either way, it’s a nice no-brainer mini-workout.

This wall decor from JCP

FF2

I have absolutely nowhere in my house to put something like this, but I think it’s cool in a weird way. But then, my taste in home decor is never that trustworthy.

What’s something you’re loving this week?

I love all the neon running gear that is out there. I went for purple sneakers last time but am really hoping there will be a nice bright pink pair for me this spring!

Yes! My current pair is hot pink and black and I’ve never been happier. :)

I would love to have a separate closet or even just area in the closet for all of running stuff to be displayed like that!!
We had thunderstorms yesterday morning, then sleet and finally slow – all in about 2 hours! Today it got up to 60!

We had a mix too, but no 60 degrees, that’s for sure! :)

I forgot about Friday Favorites this week! I love doing those posts but have been feeling under the weather so I dug one out of my drafts folder. Good blogger right!?! I WANT all those workout shoes! I would die for the closet too but the workout shoes would be like heaven to me! I would love having a variety of bright colored shoes to choose from daily :-)

Umm you are an AMAZING blogger, Giselle. I rarely do these posts either but I’m not sure why–I love them and other people seem to enjoy them, too!

Happy Friday!! I know it is horribly wrong that I am a little bit sad to have missed the big snow fall in MN last night. I just love watching the snow fall – and running in the snow. :)

That is so deeply wrong. :)

I know, right? I am sure that I am suffering from some sort of heat stroke from being in the sun for too long. .. #vacayproblems
