mom is working out

August 8, 2014

IMG_1707I absolutely love this article by Brynn Harrington- 10 Things I Want my Daughter to Know about Working Out. As my daughter accompanies me to my workout classes, or sees me come home from a bike ride all sweaty- I want her to know all the reasons exercising is awesome!

one plus one

jojoI read One Plus One over vacation last week and absolutely loved it. It started rather slow in my opinion and then I found I couldn’t put it down. I love how Jojo Moyes writes about real, flawed characters- she is a favorite author of mine! If you haven’t read Me Before You, put it on your list!

Are you reading any great books this summer?

groovebookMy sister told me about groovebook this week! Would be perfect for so many of us who mainly take photos on our phones these days rather than our digital cameras. I watched the video and I’m sold! Check it out!

july favorites

July 7, 2014

Happy July! I love this month.

Here are some recent favorites-

Bliss Grapefruit + Aloe Body Butter- love this stuff! It’s thick and moisturizing. My husband has the unscented version. Colorado residents need this lotion!

Chi Mesh Tank- this is an awesome tank as it breathes when you are in the heat and exercising. I am washing my black one over and over!

Feetures Ultra Light No Show Tab socks- the only better thing than new running shoes, are new running socks! Loving the fit of these and they are lightweight. No slip- so comfy.

Bite Beauty SPF 15 BB for Lips- this lipstick is super moisturizing. I guess I am all about moisture since I live out west! It doesn’t stay on very long, but feels and looks great when I apply.

501 Classic Camo Shoes- c’mon! These are so cute. I am wearing them all the time.

And because I always blog about food- these Ginger Garlic Steak Tacos looks AH- mazing.


eclair cake

ImageOH MY GOSH. This was a super easy cake (no baking) and sooooooooooooo good. I did double the frosting as frankly, that’s just what I do.

Make this Eclair Cake!

P.S. I made this with my 9 year old today- a fun activity to do with your kids!

summer music

June 23, 2014

broodsI am listening to it all this summer. When I work out, I like my music to be top hits and anything that motivates me to keep going.  When I am home, I always have music on. Here are some songs I like to listen to while I am cooking or hanging out.

My sister sent me this really sweet song by Lee Brice- I Don’t Dance. At first, I thought it was written from a father to a daughter but then I looked it up and he wrote it for his wife. Pretty romantic.  Click on the title to see the video.

The song that makes me laugh is Rude by Magic! Ha. My kids say I am driving them crazy by playing it in the car.

Magic by Coldplay is a great chill song. I don’t think it would get me to add another mile to my workout- but I like the rhythm.  Did anyone see Chris Martin dancing to this on SNL? Very odd in my opinion!

Loving Bridges by Broods!

Please suggest anything you are listening to!
