Good Morning and very Happy Friday to you!
Today I have plans to get an oil change, head to the gym, and put our house back together from getting our carpets cleaned. I’m not going to lie… it’s kind of nice not to have a million things going on at once today.
As of right now, the only plans I see happening this weekend are early tomorrow morning and all day Sunday for our very last home game of the season. It’s crazy to think the end is already approaching!
As I wrap things up with my team this weekend, I am excited to share more of my plans for the summer and the upcoming year with you. I still have a lot to figure out, but already have a list of goals I am excited to move forward on. Can’t wait to share more!
Until then, we have Friday Favorites. Because it’s Friday and that’s what we do around here. I’m so glad a lot of you enjoy this series and I hope you feel inclined to play along in the comments section (and link up!) too.
Friday Favorites #32: Week of 4/11
• Zulily scarves (and sale!)
I actually saw this one pop up on my Facebook newsfeed and couldn’t help but to click over. How cute are these Leto Scarves?
Rarely do I get suckered into impulsively purchasing online, but I have been on the lookout for lightweight infinity scarves for spring. And I may or may not have ordered three of them… Jackpot!
The early birds reading this might just catch the sale that is currently going on, pricing each one at $7.99!
• pet care + supplies
You might have caught a couple of posts about our fur kids and their health issues this week. First, I mentioned a change in Roadie’s behavior since moving up north, then expressed concern for the kitties and their dental care.
All is good with them, but after our vet visits, I am making a point to take precautionary measures for potential issues in the future. One thing my vet recommend for healthy teeth and gums are dental treats!
Greenies dental treats for cats and dental chews for dogs.
As well as some help in the hair ball department.
Sentry Petrodex dental chews, Whisker City Hypoallergenic & Shed Control wipes, and Martha Stewart slicker brush.
On my last visit home, my mother raved about “the antler” that has kept their puppy occupied for hours upon hours. She purchased hers at a dog show, so it was a pleasant surprise to find one on an impromptu visit to Petsmart.
It’s a real antler (yeesh) – most likely from an elk or deer – that lasts for months at a time and is great for keeping dog teeth clean and healthy. I also figured it was about time to invest in a tooth brush kit.
And finally, I stumbled upon this calming spray that smells amazing.
Although Roadie doesn’t ever really have that wet dog smell, I thought it would be nice to give him a good stress-relieving spray every now and then. I also like that it’s calming, and hope it makes him feel like I do after a nice hot bath with lavender soap and oils.
Plus, it’s Burt’s Bees brand, which has never disappointed.
• spring weather
Can I get a “heck yes” for this local weather report I’m seeing?
After a winter I hope to never have to experience again, I can’t even express how excited I was to see temperature in the 60s and 70s pop up in our forecast for the weekend!
I’ll just go on and pretend like I don’t see the drop back down to the twenties on Monday. (<- What? Why?!)
• sunset runs with Roadie
A solid week of amazing spring weather makes me want to do nothing but go outside and enjoy it. So we did.
After months and months of a dry running outside spell, I almost forgot how awesome sunset runs around the neighborhood are.
Avoiding our normal trail, Roadie and I took a different route along a main road last night and found nothing but pink skies and mother nature as our stunning backdrop.
It was so refreshing and felt easy to fly through the miles. In fact, we hit a new Roadie distance record of 4.5! I am so proud of ’em.
Speaking of running…

Hehe. Totally. #3 crosses my mind EVERY time I go for five miles. And #9.
Anddd #17…. and #27… this could go on for a while…
• this photo that makes me what to be a Bulls fan

I mean really. I have followed Jessica Garvin on Instagram for a while now, and her cuteness never ceases to amaze me.
For all you mommies out there, she also runs an incredible blog and is the photographer and DIY crafter I aspire to be one day. Like I wish I had even one thirtieth of her talent.
Anyways, she is sporting this tee with her adorable baby bump and husband!
• this salad
I have been obsessed with the same monster-mix salad combo this week. This is the third time it will appear on the blog within the past couple of days, except this time I added a quinoa burger.
Baby spinach, spring mix, red, yellow and green peppers, cucumbers, shredded carrots, green olives, chick peas, feta cheese, cut up quinoa burger, ground pepper and a chipotle onion flavored olive oil.
Yeah… I might just make more for lunch later.
• yoga burnout pants
I mentioned these pants a few weeks back when I received a shipment from Reebok. Well, ever since the first time I put them on I haven’t wanted to take them off.
I have worn them around the house, to dance practice, to bed, around town, and even on the running trails.
Paired with these Reebok Skyscapes, I feel like I might not even be wearing any clothes at all. I’m that comfortable and I love it.
That was fun! But now I would love to hear from you…
Happy Friday! 😀
So happy you are finally getting warmer weather! We love the Greenies and their pill pocket treats for our furry ones! Happy Friday!
Pill pockets are such a great invention! Happy Weekend 🙂
Strength and Sunshine
I love scarves and wear them everyday! Those are so pretty and bright for Spring!
I also love “skinny” sweatpants. I have a pair from Old Navy, but the Reebok ones look super comfy 🙂
Love a good Old Navy find!
I’ve been loving the spring weather in New England! It’s supposed to be in the 70’s on Sat and Sun and I can’t wait 🙂 . Also, that is an awesome deal on those scarves. Which ones did you buy?
Sorry this response is so late, but I ordered the Peach & White Zigzag, Mint & Gray Stripe, and the Ivory Zigzag Lace! Hope you found some good ones!
my dogs LOVEEEE antlers!!!
I’ll definitely be purchasing more!

I am loving our spring weather too. This is the absolute best time of year. I read that Buzzfeed piece a few days ago and related to just about every one. SO funny!
My favorite has been fall ever since I moved up here, but spring is really threatening that number one spot!
So funny you posted that picture–I literally JUST found Jessica’s blog via Pinterest last night and was browsing through! She’s adorable!
I can’t stand it! She really is the cutest!
I know you have mentioned the Amazon Prime Barre workouts, and I have Amazon Prime but don’t know how to find them. You mentioned they were free, right? Could you help me out? I would love to give it a try but don’t know how to!
Spring weather is the best. Those scarves are great! I’m going to go check them out. Spring deserves new scarves 🙂
Sure! Just do a search on Amazon for Ballet Beautiful and the first couple you see are free to stream online!
You have to download some kind of video player app, (sliverlight?) but that is also free.
Hope this helps! 🙂
Those scarves!!!!! Since I’m a sucker for them the cute spring colors and lightness make me want to make a click over to the store sooooo bad! Also…beautiful sunset run!
Haha I know how you love your scarves 😉
Krista @ Krista Mae's Healthy Ways
Ahhh I just ordered some scarves myself! Thank you! (Or maybe no thank you for fueling my online shopping addiction!) Haha Have a great weekend!
Haha, you’re welcome? 😉 hope you love them!
Ashley @ A Lady Goes West
Love the pants, love the scarf, and love the warmer temperatures!
I really hope that next week forecast was a joke. Happy weekend!
Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie
I love those scarves! And my cat is obsessed with Greenies.
I’m so glad mine love them as well! I feel like I won a mini victory there. 😉
Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment
Love the pants! They look cozy. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for hosting the link up!
Thanks so much for linking up! Happy Friday! 🙂
Haha I loved that Buzzfeed article, too. Story of my life!
Couldn’t help but to share it!
We give those greenies (dog version) to our Pomeranian – he thinks they’re treats. Bonus. Hahaha.
I LOVE those light coloured scarves you showed. They’d look so nice with a white tank top and jeans.
I can’t wait for when they come in! And yes… all three of our pets definitely think they are big time treats. Love that! 🙂
