Congrats, You Made It To Friday

HOOORAY, it's almost the weekend, friends. I know most of you had a short week, but sometimes the short weeks can be the longest right? I was at work five days, so I'm super ready for a fun, chill weekend. I'm looking forward to some gym and fun family time. But first, Friday faves :)!

Favorite Picture of the Week: Me, at the barre. Wednesday was my first ballet class in over four weeks and I was so happy to be back dancing. I was worried I would be awful again and I WAS in the new stuff, but I hit a few dance combinations that felt great. #backatthebarre #feelinggood

Favorite Quote of the Week: Everyone shares in trials and tribulations, it's your attitude that makes you a happy or miserable person. Don't let life beat you into negativity, the sun will come out again!

Favorite Funny of the Week: Y'all know what I'm talking about!!! I did some vacuum dancing earlier this week while cleaning up and it was fabulous. What's your favorite cleaning/dancing song?

Favorite Healthy Meal of the Week: It's no secret I'm trying to get after it health and fitness wise, which means making good decisions for food. I get bored pretty easily with food, so I've been trying to mix it up and yesterday created this gem. 6 oz of deli meat, 2 tablespoons of cream cheese plus fresh cilantro, spinach and red peppers all rolled up like a taco. Delicious, nutritious and super simple. Prego mamas I bet this would be yummy with heated deli meat, too.

Favorite Video of the Week: Who's in for buying adult swimmies? #needakeepeatingcleanbuddy


Have a super fabulous Friday, bunnies!

That lunch look yummy - wonder if it would be good with veggie cream cheese (which is my fave!) And good for you for getting back to dancing! I danced through college, and wish I would have continued after, as my body and core have never been tighter than when I was dancing regularly. Sigh. The good ol' days, lol!:)
