Fun Things to Read On A Friday

Dog Party!
We had a dog party this week and thank god no one ended up swinging from the chandeliers!

Hola peeps! Happy Friday!

It’s been a pretty crazy week playing catch up since, between Iowa and our Oktoberfest weekend I have basically been out of town for the past 10 days, but this morning I woke up and felt truly caught up. Well, uh…until Garrett looked into our empty refrigerator and said “What should I take to work for lunch?” Sorry, Garrett! We aren’t COMPLETELY caught up. 🙂 But this afternoon I will be rolling into the weekend with no worries.

This weekend is actually my birthday weekend (on Monday I turn 35! OMG HAVE NOT DECIDED HOW I FEEL ABOUT THAT!) so obviously I plan to do whatever the hell I want all weekend. Hopefully with a few fun little excursions thrown in! Anyway, enough about me, let’s talk links!


*First can we just talk about the BEST NEWS EVER from this week? AndreAnna is tip-toeing back onto the internet.

*Food I’d like to make this weekend: Baked Chicken with Jalapeno Pesto, Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Capers, Paleo Caramel Brownies

*Speaking of food, the Top 5 “Health” Foods That Do More Harm Than Good.

*Lots of good looking books on this Fall Reading List. I am so ready for it to get cold so I can feel no guilt when I spend a few extra hours reading in bed! (I’m currently reading this book and it is a PAGE TURNER! I’m obsessed!)

*REALITY CHECK: 6 Helpful Reminders for the Overwhelmed Person. (Hint, the world has been ending since the beginning of time.)

*The jury is still out on how I feel about Gabby Bernstein, but this video did TOTALLY speak to me.

*Do you use My Fitness Pal? I found these instructions to re-configure your macros super helpful since I have no desire to eat 300 g of carbs per day or whatever ridiculous amount the default is listed at.

*Things I Am Excited About: Catherine Malandrino made a line for Kohl’s! I think I might need this. While we’re shopping at Kohl’s, I also really want this Lauren Conrad shirt. (Ok this one too.) So cute! Fall has me dying to wear all sorts of black. Usually I get all earthy once autumn rolls in, but this year I feeling all about black and white.

*If you live in a colder climate and are wondering about minimal shoes for winter, Katy Bowman put together a great resource list.

*Loved this: It’s not always easy and transition is uncomfortable, but alas it is essential. Stephanie’s post on Discipline, Patience + Hard Work is on point!

*Have you downloaded your preview of Well Fed 2 yet? I cooked out of it this week and YOU GUYS!!!! I can’t wait to share my thoughts about it with you. (But here’s a hint: I LOVE IT ALREADY!)


Ok, go forth and have a great weekend everyone! I’m right about to do the same. 🙂
