Friday Favorites

Yay for Friday! Last night I had a great dinner with a friend and then came home to snuggle the pup and catch up on Nashville. (Anyone else watch??? gahhhh!! I don’t know what I want Rayna to do!)

I went to Pure Barre this morning. I allllmost skipped because I didn’t sleep well, but I’m glad I went. (I reminded myself I wouldn’t be able to go back to sleep anyway, and I wouldn’t regret going.) It was a great workout. I could barely finish the seat section! And, Carolyn’s bulldog Deacon was there. ha! He is so stinking cute. Would NOT hold still for a photo.

He’s like a compressed version of Maizey.

After Pure Barre, I fried up some farm-fresh eggs that I got from a coworker who raises chickens. Farm-fresh eggs taste a million times better than store-bought eggs. I cooked them in a little bit of coconut oil. Obsessed with that combo. I’ll probably make a green smoothie before I head out the door too.

I have a busy weekend ahead of me – tea with friends on Saturday, half marathon on Sunday, friends over for dinner on Sunday. Should be fun!

Alright on to…

Friday Favorites! 

Chocolate Matcha Energy Balls.

I have a ton of matcha tea that got sent to me a while ago and I just haven’t gone through it very quickly. Looks like a great way to use it up!

I love anything lime. And I can’t wait to try these key lime pie bars

Key Lime Pie Bars 3 001

 And these dairy-free, soy-free key lime cheesecakes.

This outfit. I love the shorts, the drapey top, the earrings, the watch. Totally Southern. 🙂 And kind of obsessed with the tumblr the outfit was out, Southern Charm.

I love poached eggs over spaghetti and this spin on it sounds especially good.

I want these. I really really want these. The Classic Gap sandal. Classic indeed. Why are they sold out??! boo.

My new white plates, bowls and especially, the salad/pasta bowls. Previously, I had a mismatch of dishes. And when I found a Macy’s gift card in my wallet (no clue where it came from!), I snatched up a new set of dishes. Everythingwas an extra 15% off and I used eBates (<– referral link) for cash back so I got another $10 off, essentially. Wahoo!

I LOVE how clean and organized it looks. I think I’ll eventually replace my plastic cups to create even more uniformity (sometimes I just hate drinking out of glass for some reason). I’ll keep a couple of my favorite colorful bowls though. I might just move them to a different cupboard so it’s all crisp and white in this one. ha!

Alright, time to finish getting ready. Have a great day!

    I agree, farm fresh eggs are WAY better, so happy our market is back so I can buy some this summer.
    I need to make those matcha balls too! We also have some I was sent 🙂

    I’ve never regretted going to Pure Barre, even when I have been super tired. It’s always woken me up and energized me. I’m impressed you have room enough in your studio for a dog to roam, my studio is so tiny! The room itself is bigger than the rest of the space.

    Nutella bread….yeah I am going to be making that this weekend!!

    Gosh, I love Ebates. I went a little crazy with their 15% deals this week.

    Your dessert picks this week look so delicious! Also, I have to vouch for those GAP sandals. I bought a pair with black straps a month or so ago online during a sale, and just got around to wearing them this week (it has not been very warm in Chicago!) They are SO comfortable. I bet they’ll come back in stock soon!

    How easy would it be for a newbie to do a pure barre class? I have always been intrigued, but never gotten into a studio. Love farm fresh eggs!

      Oh a newbie could definitely do it!! Almost every class I’ve been in has had a first timer. And, everyone was a newbie at one point! You may need to take breaks occasionally but lots of people do. Tthe core section and the butt section are so tough for me; I still take breaks even after going on and off for a year! Just let the instructor know you’re new so they can explain what it means when they say “tuck.” 🙂

    I love cooking my eggs in a little coconut oil! Glad somebody else does it too! Anything with Nutella in it is HEAVEN.

    I love your Friday night comfy pants!! I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one who’s relaxing clothes have a couple of holes (my favorite sweatshirt basically no longer has a back!!). Just cannot part with comfort especially in my own home!!
    I also love your white plates – I changed out to white a couple of years ago and I LOVE it!! Makes everything look so clean and neat!

      OMG these pants are SO holey. I’ve had them since I was like 12! I stole them from my mom. They used to have elastic ankles that I’d put my feet in and shuffle around. Eventually I cut them to crops because I wore holes in the bottom. They are so thin and worn out but I just can’t get rid of them!

      Seriously, I’m obsessed with the white dishes. OBSESSED. 🙂 It does look so neat!
