Friday Favorites

In case you don't follow me on social media (which reminds me... maybe you should take a couple seconds to do so ;)), you may not know that the hubby, pup and I are currently taking our new #AdventureMobile on its maiden voyage. We aren't venturing too far from home (just in case anything goes wrong), but we still wanted to give it a go. With that said, even though I'm not home doesn't mean you should miss out on things I am LOVING lately... So, without further ado...

Margarita Flight

I am not a big drinker... I don't like beer or wine, and honestly, I hate the idea of drinking my calories, but every once in a while you can find me with a drink or two. The hubby and I went out to dinner with some friends earlier in the week and on the menu there was a MARGARITA FLIGHT! Seeing as the hubby is a beer (specifically IPA) 'enjoyer', I am familiar with flights and how they work... but had never seen an option for margaritas - so SIGN ME UP! The margaritas were yummy, but it's the idea that I was really loving! Why not try each of the House, Cadillac, Chile N PiƱa, and Strawberry margaritas rather than having to pick just one?!


If you've been around these parts for a while you know that I've picked up a bit of reading {you can check out the books I read in JANUARY, FEBRUARY and MARCH in case you are interested}. So when a friend of mine saw this AWESOME project, she thought of me and now I have to share it with you (even though we are now at the tail end of it).


From April 17 – 23, the week leading up to UNESCO’s World Book Day, we have an opportunity to #ReadWell and to help young readers in local communities throughout North America. All we have to do is read. Browse and read the free, timed excerpts from the books and authors on this site – from Biography and Memoir, to Health and Wellness, and from Sci-fi & Fantasy, to Young Adult and the Classics – triggering book donations from Penguin Random House to Save the Children, up to 300,000 books. Some take as little as 5-10 minutes of your time!


Adding Workouts on Garmin Connect

Now that I am working with a coach (which you can read about HERE), I have some "non-standard" workouts on my training calendar (and by non-standard I mean more than just running said amount of miles). I love how easy it is to add different workouts on Garmin Connect and sync them to my device. Let's just say I am very non-tech savvy and I was able to figure it out, so it has to be super simple ;) The most recent workout I added had a 10 minute warm-up, 6 repeats of 800 meters with 2:00 of rest between, 2 repeats of 400 meters with 1:00 of rest between and then finally a 10 minute cool-down. Being able to have the workout in my watch helps to take the thinking out of running (as well as the counting, which can be tough after your fourth or fifth hard interval). You even have the option to put in different variables (such as a range of paces or a specific heart rate you want for said portions of the workout) - #MindBlown!

Hello Apparel's New Tees

The sweet folks over at Hello Apparel have noticed how much I love their gear (prior to them reaching out to me a couple weeks back I already had ten tees and two pairs of pants in my closet) so they kindly offered to send me a couple of their new items - uh.... HECK TO THE YES! And they just arrived yesterday! I am IN LOVE! The popsicle is PERFECT for summer and I can't wait to rock the "There's No Place Like Home" tee on Saturday for Earth Day!

What are you loving lately?

Nice tees! I love the idea of margarita samplers in different flavors.
