Four (not Five) Things for Friday

The weekend is here!

It’s been a long [short] week and I’m looking forward to catching up with some friends this weekend and the start of football season.


Walked into this situation this evening in our bathroom. Jo found himself trapped on the side of the bath — how do these things even happen?!

Saturday marks the annual Saints Kickoff Run which finishes on the 50-yard-line inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. All proceeds benefit the Louisiana Children’s Museum. More info can be found on the website.


Had the VERY good fortunate of eating at Peche last night. It was the second time I had been there and I’ve had the above appetizer both times — the crab claws with pickled chilies. So delicious — have yet to try something there I haven’t loved!

Hoping to do some baking this weekend — hope they come out as amazing as the ones in the store!

Have a great weekend!

Happy Wednesday!

When I was writing this post last night, I couldn’t believe it was only Wednesday — it feels like it should be Friday by now!

I’m hoping today’s post will inspire me–and all of you -since it’s all about fitness.

All through high school and college, working out was never missing from my daily routine. In college, often 2-3 hours of the day was devoted to exercise since I was playing tennis, but, over the last nine years, it’s been really hard to make it a priority. Work and our little family has come first.

As I was stressing about turning 30, I really did a good job for about 10 months in regards to exercising more and eating better. It’s been tough since then and I’m hoping to turn over a new leaf as the NBA season gets closer.

Hopefully, putting this together help re-energize my motivation and maybe I’ll even incentivize myself with one of the above fun items as a reward for hitting a goal.

I love everything on this list and, I have to admit, I’m obsessed with wedged sneakers. I really hope the stay on-trend forever! Ha ha! They’re fun, cute and comfy!

Some of the other items I really covet are the Tory Burch FitBit bracelet and the Jordan sweatshirt. When we were in New York City this summer and visited the Nike store, I LOVED it. It’s a part of the men’s Jordan Brand line, but it’s so cute.

Lastly, the lululemon yoga mat looks so nice! I’ve tried yoga a few times, but really would love to add it to my schedule a couple of times a week.

What are some of your favorite workouts? How do you keep yourself motivated?

Have a happy Wednesday!
