The Weekender: Favorite Links + Quote of the Week

It was a lovely weekend over in these parts. Friday night I did the WOD (thanks, Matt, for getting me there – my shoulders and triceps are still store!) and afterwards, Tommy and I had dinner with Matt and Meg at Quanta Basta. On Saturday, I took it pretty easy in the morning (no workout, but hit the Farmer’s Market!) before my hair appointment at 12:30. I cut about an 1″ off and it was time for more highlights (which I do about every 3 months). I love it! Jodi at The Escape Salon is the best.

Sunday was pretty low key – church, brunch, took a nap (ahhhh glorious!) and then hit balls on the driving range before dinner. We were eating outside on the patio when a storm rolled in and poured. Luckily we were protected by the table umbrella until we could make it inside. I love storms in the South; it was fun to sit out there in it for a bit! (I posted some pictures and videos on Snapchat – terilynhutchie)

Onto The Weekender with favorite links from the week + my favorite quote of the week. I’m going to try to share a quote each week to help set my intention and focus for the week – I wrote the quote on a sticky note and put it on my bathroom mirror to serve as a reminder. Hope you enjoy this addition!

I’m dying to try this Roasted Sweet Potato Salad. 

I love honey cinnamon lattes so I think I need to make a this easy peasy honey simple syrup.

I’m a terrible napper so Sunday’s hour snooze was pretty amazing for me. I just have such a hard time falling asleep for a nap (no issues falling asleep at night, thank goodness). I google naps yesterday after waking up (totally normal) since I’d like to become better at them and loved this article, The Perfect Nap: Sleeping is a Mix of Art and Science.

Five Tips for the Corporate Runner. Whether or not you work in Corporate America like I do, these are great tips. I especially loved the tip to not check emails before running, which I’m totally guilty of doing.

Quote of the week: Allow space for grace. – Jonathan Robbins. 

[tweetthis remove_twitter_handles=”true” remove_url=”true”]Allow space for grace. ~ @RobbinsJonathan[/tweetthis]

I loved this quote from yesterday’s church sermon since it can apply to life in so many ways. We need to allow ourselves grace because we aren’t perfect. We need to allow others grace since no one is perfect. We need to allow space in our busy lives to develop a relationship with God since we all need His grace. And, we need to allow space to accept His grace.

[tweetthis remove_twitter_handles=”true”]Allow space for grace. – @RobbinsJonathan ~ LOVE how this applies to life in so many ways.[/tweetthis]

I kind of want to have this quote turned into a lovely calligraphed piece of art to hang on my wall. I don’t have those kind of skills so I’ll  be outsourcing that. 🙂 Have a great week!

    I’ve been following your blog for sometime now (usually for the running and nutrition info…) BUT I’ve loved that you have been sharing more about your faith too! 😀 It’s fun and encouraging to see you share about what you’re studying, learning about, or what sermons have stuck with you recently!

    That’s a great quote! I resisted the #onelittleword idea for a while – and I still don’t “choose” one like a New Years resolution- but my phrase a couple of years ago was “grace over perfection” and I wrote it out like a fraction. I might not have been great at it that year – especially with others :/ – but I still remind myself of it quite often.
