Friday Faves | April 3rd, 2015

It’s been a while since I’ve done a little Friday Fave Feature.

So, why not throw one out!?

1. Annie’s Organic Chocolate Chip Bunnies

If you aren’t careful the whole box will be gone in a second.



2. Eyelash fill day. 

Jessica at Living Beautifully is a rock star.   I have to throw out a public apology to her today, though.  MAN, I was so fidgety.  Who knew laying down for an hour today would have been so difficult?


Maybe it was because I had just left the gym and today was legs day.  Who knows…



3. Kid Rock’s new album, First Kiss.

It’s different then his earlier Rock N Roll days.   He has gone a little more country and a little more laid back.  It’s taking me a bit to get used to the new vibe, but I dig it.

I just dig him, really.   I’ve seen him in concert a few times and he definitely puts on a helluva show!



4. Juicy Fruit Bubble Gum.

Obsessed with this gum.  I may or may not have purchased HyVee’s entire stock.  🙂

The bubbles I can get out of this gum are LEGIT!

…And everyone that follows me on Snapchat knows it, too.




5. Spring time

Twice this week I have sat outside to eat dinner or enjoy a post workout shake.   Aww, spring.  I sure do love you.



6. Gym Rat Tendencies

I am at the gym.  All the time.   I often feel like I live there, whether it is the Y, the IWCC gym or Blue Moon Fitness.  But you know what?  I wouldn’t change it for a second.  I love my part time life. 🙂


And another of my stupid Snapchat faces.   Aren’t you wishing you followed me?  I mean, seriously….



Cheers to a wonderful Easter weekend, friends. ❤

Friday Faves – August 1st, 2014

1.  This quote.   Everything about it.  I live life in the fast lane; constantly moving, exploring, experiencing, living.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.




2.  This bread.   All of it.  YUM!  One of the healthiest out there, and seriously so good I could eat it plain straight out of the toaster.  No shame in admitting that.  Give it a try.




3.  This Bar.   Heron Bay, Louisville, Nebraska.  ❤




4.  This shirt.   I scope out open back shirts to show off my art work.   I’ve got some new ink coming soon.  Eek!  🙂




5.  Bike Night:  Wednesday Night Bike Nights with the girls at Quaker Steak and Lube and Buschwackers.  Cocktails, girlfriends and some twisting of the throttle.




6.  Post-workout.  Man this stuff is so yummy.  I LOVE fruit punch anything.  And this really helps with muscle rejuvenation and also worked great for endurance when training for my half marathon.  I am not near as sore after workouts thanks to this little 8oz shot of goodness.  Try it out!





7.   THESE GIRLS!  You guys!  The 9th Annual Bitch Run was July 19th.  And I HAVEN’T POSTED ABOUT IT YET!  What the hell is wrong with me?!  It’s because there are over 160 photos.   How do I even?   It’s like I start to post and then I get overwhelmed.  Too.  Many.  Pictures!  I promise I will share soon.





PEACE OUT, Girl-scouts!

Celebrating May Day at Work.

What’s better then reliving a little bit of that childhood fun with cups full of popcorn, pretzels, marshmallows and M&M’s.




Sweet Facebook Posts.

They actually like my classes.   This fills my heart with warmth.  I am always a little too critical of myself and think about what I can do better for the next class.

I love that THEY love a good workout and I am so happy that I can help provide that for them.

LOVE my YMCA family.
