Five Friday Faves.


Hey hey ladies, it's Friday. (Duh, right?) I'm happy to report this week was much better, I'm finally feeling back to normal. I have a few fun things to share and in order to keep this short-ish, let's jump right in!

::Fave Delivery::
bracelets earrings
My Nordstrom anniversary goodies came in, enough said. Cheers to new bracelets and studs, I'm in love. 

::Fave Food::
Healthy
My go-to chicken salad! Above you see what you'll need and my favorite way to enjoy it. Also delicious on bread or a tortilla. Make, eat, enjoy.

::Fave Fashion Piece::
Leopard
So, I'm in love with a pair of my shoes. I found these a couple months ago thanks to Tara sharing them. I bought them immediately (birthday money = shoes) and I've been in love since then. I'd sleep in them, but Dustin would probably buy me a 1 way ticket on the crazy train. Swoon here

::Fave part of Friday::
Thanks to Katie sharing and Mason creating, I'm taking over The Blog Baton today over on Instagram. Make sure and follow along here, I'll be sharing bits and pieces throughout my day! 

::Fave Moment::
Dustin and I took a big step and hired a personal trainer this week, we start Monday! We'll be training 3 times a week for the next 3 months. Why? Well, if you've been around for a while you know we've been on a weight loss & fitness journey for a while now (here & here). We lost the weight we wanted to lose (we each lost 45 lbs), but we've been kind of stuck for about a year now. It's not about being skinny to us, we want to be fit & toned and we want strength. We want to take it to the next level. We decided a trainer would benefit us in many ways- we want accountability and knowledge regarding our personal fitness and nutrition goals. We both enjoy and are passionate about fitness and just being healthy, being the best we can be. So, here we go! I'll definitely be sharing along the way.

Tell me what you're up to this weekend?
