Heyyyy – Happy Saturday. I am so sad our vacation is over. The girls and I made it back yesterday evening – it was a smooth and easy 3.5 hour drive back! I’ll be sharing a bit more about our vacation later on. It was one of the best family trips we’ve had.
I’m a little late posting my Friday faves, obviously, but I wanted to be sure I got this up as soon as possible. Let’s just pretend it’s Friday, K?
Friday faves 13
Coffee on vacation – because it just tastes better than coffee on a work day, right? I’ve really enjoyed my early morning coffee chats with my sister. She’s the BEST! <3
Lorissa’s Kitchen chicken jerky – I wasn’t sure if I liked the ginger taste at first, but it grew on me and I’ve been snacking on these all week.
Svelte’s hello beautiful. Chocolate protein shake – I grabbed this on a whim from Whole Foods and it’s seriously delicious. Pre-made protein shakes can sometimes be hit or miss, but this one was spot on. It has 11 grams of protein and only 6 grams of sugar (it’s naturally sweetened with stevia). While I usually make my own protein shakes, this one is a great choice to grab on the go. It’s cheaper on Amazon, so I’ll definitely be buying online next time.
Is it better to lift heavier weights or do more reps? I found this article super interesting.
Matt sent this quote to me earlier and I love it. Good advice about taking risks and grabbing opportunities.
TRX workouts – I’m all about these lately. The suspension trainer is challenging and so easy to transport. I recently shared a TRX workout I created while on vacation, but I’ll likely be posting more soon. I can’t get enough!
This is a good read. There’s an unfortunate stigma about mental health disease. I believe therapy and modern medicine can significantly improve the quality of life for those who are suffering.
La Croix – super refreshing on a hot day!
Officially in love with these Cat & Jack kids sandals from Target. I was planning on buying them while on vacation, but we ended up having THE.WORST.SHOPPING. trip and I decided to just put them back. I am definitely going to get them next time. More on the Target trip from hell later.
Green smoothies – I got back into a routine with them on vacation. I have been making this one all week!
Justin’s snack pack!! I’m so excited about these. They are a great snack choice for on the go. I just need them to add some more banana chips, mmmk?
What are you loving lately? Who else thinks coffee taste better on vacation?
