Happy Friday! Yay – we made it. How did the week turn out for you? Please tell me it was good! I’m diving in with some Friday favorites and fun things to share.
Friday faves 22
Jojoba oil – I have been using this a lot as a moisturizer for my face and hands. I love the slightly nutty smell and it feels great on my skin. I also use it to remove eye makeup (add a small amount to a cotton ball). Trader Joe’s carries it on the cheap, but you can find it just about anywhere.
This “papa” shirt my sister gifted to the girls. Madison is modeling her blue steel look below. This girl kills me.
All the 4T clothes ever made (courtesy of my sister). She’s the best. Seriously, this picture is only about half of the clothes she brought. It took us forever to sort through it all. No lie.
Nail Stop: My sister and I took her girls to have mani-pedis done while they were here visiting. This place is so neat that I had to share for any local friends. First of all, it’s huge! There is a separate kid’s area as well as a private room for groups. There’s also an espresso/coffee bar and cocktail bar for adults. Perfect, right? Highly recommend!
Here’s the darling kid’s section.
This giant Mama NEEDS SOME coffee mug. #truth
I had some photos taken with Amelya Jayne Photography and I am super happy with how they turned out. I’ve added them to my Workouts and About Me pages. Is there anything more awkward than having your picture taken?

The pizza Matt makes is honestly the best! We had it last week, but I’m still dreaming about it. The crust is from Julie Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook, but he does his own sauce and toppings. This one had a little Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top and roasted broccoli.
Cousin love! <3 Such cuties!
Warm weather treats. The girls have been asking for “ice cream” a lot lately. I think we are all looking forward to spring!
Women like to compete against themselves: I found this NYT article interesting from a professional standpoint, but also from a fitness focus. I love competing against my past performance – it matters more to me that what others may be doing.
Chocolate covered vegan cookie dough bars – a long title, but looks soooo yummy!
This deadlift video demo that Matt shared with me (I love him because he sends me power lifting videos during the day).
What are you loving lately?
P.S. I did my first official CrossFit class yesterday and I am stupid sore today. Everything hurts.
