Things I Love Friday!

Let’s just jump right into the the things I love this Friday!

Yeah, did you see Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon preforming “I’m Bringing Sexy Back” as a barbershop quartet?!? Yeah, my husband said I was “giggling like a schoolgirl”, but hey, what can I say, JT takes me back to my teenage years!

A big thank you for Tasha for introducing me to RandomAbs! These quick ab workouts change everyday and work your abs hardcore.  I did two workouts so far this week and they were awesome!


I often get asked how I make my green smoothies and I loved this simple explanation and formula for Creating the Perfect Smoothie by the No Meat Athlete.

Another question I get asked a lot is how do you decide which type of running or workout shoe to buy? Here is my short answer: save yourself a lot of heart ache and blisters and go to a professional running store, meet with a trained professional, and get fitted for shoes.  For the long answer check out Lea from Running for Dummies super-informative post on buying running shoes.


I’ve also been looking a lot at gardening stuff. I may help out with the camp garden and do some small container gardens on my patio, but I love the look of these raised beds as the centerpiece to a backyard. It’s so orderly and English.

Mmm… I totally loved the homemade doughnut our Executive Chef Liz made for our GLM staff lunch on Wednesday.  I loved every high gluten, high calorie, high sugar bite. My rule of treats is make it worth it! Krispy Kreme…not worth it…homemade fresh doughnut made by a culinary professional…yes, please!

Also, the sun is really starting to flex it’s muscle here in Michigan and I love it!  I took a beautiful run yesterday in the evening light and it was pure joy.  I also LOVE that I have rediscovered my running mojo. Got EVERY run in this week and actually enjoyed them!


And finally just for fun and because I love Uncle Si from Duck Dynasty:


What do you LOVE this week?
