We made it! It’s Friday and the weekend is in sight. SL and I don’t have any plans and that means lots of cooking, watching House of Cards and time for working out! Today is a milestone day in that I have written Friday Favorites post 3 weeks in a row. If you are looking for me, I’ll be over here patting myself on the back. Now the main event: Friday Favorites – April 8.
Friday Favorites – April 8
Chicken Bacon Breakfast Strata
I already mentioned my latest creation in this post but I can’t get enough of it. I have eaten it for breakfast every single day this week and hope to make it again in the future. I used leftover chicken and leftover bacon instead of sausage which I use when I normally make breakfast strata. I also substituted leftover waffles and one bagel for the base.
Mid-week Date Night
SL and I went to a concert (!!!) on Tuesday (!!!!). I know, I can’t believe it either. We may have been the oldest people there but it was such a fun time. This is the 3rd time we’ve seen Naked & Famous but the first time at the venue, The Sinclair. It was an intimate show
Lunch Time Workouts
I get a free gym membership through work, I know #blessed, and this weekend I took 3 lunchtime classes. Working out during lunch not only breaks up my day, but frees my evenings to go to concerts or to come home and make dinner and sit on the couch. Here is what I did:
Monday – Spin
Tuesday – 30 minute tabata
Wednesday – Yoga
Other workouts this week
Monday – Tabata + Strength at Studio 5
Thursday – Pilates at Studio 5
Friday – HiiTRIDE (30 min intense cycle) at Studio 5
Maxi Dresses for Summer Weddings
I have fallen down the rabbit hole of Revolve. I’ll climb back out eventually – probably when I spend all of my money and SL gives me the boot. I am obsessed with these gorgeous dresses and may have ordered one of them…
Trina Turk Coral Reef Maxi Dress (out of stock now – because I bought the last one 🙈)
SL and I have 6 weddings this summer. Six!! How did that happen? I honestly thought our heavy wedding seasons were long gone. I am hoping 1) the dress I bought fits; 2) that I can wear it to most of these weddings and 3) I win millions and can buy all of the beautiful dresses. Fingers crossed!
My Updated Kitchen
I don’t have any good pictures yet but I just want to brag a little here. SL and I did an AMAZING job at updating our kitchen. We got new countertops, changed the backsplash and updated the island and peninsula. We really nailed it. #nothumblebrag.
I will maybe write a post about it all at some point but I am going to have to ask the family photographer (SL) to take some great pics for me.
That’s all for my favorites this week. I am looking forward to a quiet weekend with a few fun workouts and probably some waffles.
