Five on Friday (VI)


Wahoooo Friday!! Any fun plans? Today, I’m doing coffee with Kay and my MIL/FIL, teaching & Kay has her last swim lesson! Tomorrow, teaching step and lots of family time. Sunday, brunch, teaching pump and a BBQ! This is my sixth Five on Friday post and includes five (ish) things I’m loving right now:

1. Finding fun recipes to try! I plan on making these quinoa vegetable muffins, these cookies, and I just recently made these protein granola bars and they turned out awesome!!

2. Skinny Pop Popcorn: I bought this on a whim on Amazon and I LOVE it. No artificial anything, gluten free, non-GMO, delicious! Kay and Josh love it too:


3. Love Grown Power O’s. The company was nice enough to send samples of the cereal to me (since they’re not yet carried in stores nearby). They’re totally delicious. I love the Honey and Kay loves the Strawberry. The chocolate and original are also yummy:Honey_Front1

4. These Martha Stewart towels. We just ordered a bundle and they are so fluffy and fantastic.




5. The song Classic- This song was in Body Attack 2 releases ago and I loved the song from the first time I heard it. MK is Walt from Lost (which just blows my mind).

Father’s Day Weekend & Recipes

Been a while :) What’s new with you? We had a fantastic father’s day weekend and I wanted to share pictures and a few recipes I’ve made lately.

First off, this weekend. We did all sorts of fun stuff for Daddy’s day. Kaylin made her Dad a special card and we picked him up his favorite sandwich for lunch on Saturday:


Saturday night, we went to dinner at Hank’s with Josh’s family. Kaylin and I also gave Josh his gift, which will involve a trip with his Dad to go drive some fast cars & eat a great steak dinner at Ruth’s Chris:




Sunday, we went to lunch with my parents. Dad gave his first go at pigtails:


We went to Vespa on DI. This restaurant is amazing- consistently good. Kay and my Mom:


My Dad & me:


Other than eating ;), Kay and I went for a couple runs and I taught Body Step. We also did tons of swimming. Kaylin is in swim lessons right now and has been rocking them. Love that she is a little fish.

In terms of homemade eats, I’ve been making a lot of salads lately. This one is spinach, arugula, hard boiled egg whites, craisins, roasted chickpeas, squash, and green beans topped with crab cake:


I also made my favorite fried rice with shrimp:


Tonight, we’re having my sloppy janes.

What’s new with you?
