Spring Favorites

First Day Of Spring & Friday Favorites

Spring is here! YAAY Spring!

Spring has sprung, and so has my orchid! Eight flowers have bloomed but there are still two buds to go. I will never get over the incredible beauty of orchids


Spring Orchids


I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for a while. Andrew and I are heading down to sunny San Diego tomorrow and on Sunday, we’re running our first 5k. I’m sure we’ll have no problem completing the 3.1 miles, but what I’m most excited about is running it together. (Also looking forward to a well-deserved brunch afterward.)


Let’s kick off this spring weekend with Friday Favorites! If you’re new around here, this post does a good job of explaining what Friday Favorites are all about. As always, feel free to add your own favorites in the comments below.


Friday Favorites

New nail polish colors

I’ve been rocking the red (on the left) for a while now, but I’m really digging this new pink (middle).

Coloring books

I was going to specify “water-coloring in my brand new My Little Pony watercoloring book”, but I just saw these adult coloring books and now I’m questioning everything…

This full body at-home workout

I completed this workout twice this week, and I was a hot, sweaty mess by the end of it both times.

TJ’S  Coffee Latte & Cream Bars

These were a definite impulse buy last Sunday (when it was 94 degrees), but it turns out that they’re really good. Each bar is pretty small, but that’s probably a good thing.

Loaded Dark Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I’m considering making another batch of these cookies to bring with us to San Diego this weekend. They’re gluten free, refined sugar free, and full of healthy fats, so I’m thinking they might be a good pre-race breakfast.

Two Year Anniversary post on Amy M4gic

I’m honored that you guys seemed to enjoy reading about our wedding in Monday’s post, which was by far the most popular post of the week. I still can’t believe Andrew and I have been married for two whole years.



Fun links from around the web:

Instagram sugar cookies – The video is mesmerizing.
