Friday Faves

Couldn't miss another Friday Faves post, could I? That's crazy talk. I hope you are all enjoying American life + Summer while I am here at home enjoying time with my family and cool weather. Not cold, but a bit chilly. We haven't done much, just relaxed and seen a bit - not too many touristy things yet.

Meet @ The Barre

I'll just share my favourite photo of the trip so far - spending time with my cousin's little girls has definitely been the highlight of my trip and has made me super sad that I live so far away.

I mean, isn't she the cutest?
Fave Movie

I watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty & Winter's Tale on the flight over, and I really enjoyed them both (may have cried a bunch in both of them). I think I enjoyed Winter's Tale just a wee bit more, and apparently it's a book, so....


Fave Post

How awesome were the guest posts this week? Sorry I just have to shamelessly plug them, but I was rolling around laughing while I was reading Amanda's post yesterday, and dreaming of warmer weather and planning my first Jersey vacation whilst reading Alyssa's post on Tuesday. Can I stay on your couch Alyssa? Promise I'm a good guest!

Fave Workout

Ha - I'm on holiday, who're you kidding?

Nah but seriously, I have been doing little things here and there to make sure I don't come home 20 lbs heavier.  How good is this hotel room workout? Simple, easy, can do anywhere. My kind of workout.

Fave Song

I have been jamming to this song, I know I'm a bit late, but aren't I always?



I don't have any funnies for you today - how rude, right? Hope you'll forgive me.

Have a fantastic weekend peeps!

  1. Ooo I have wanted to see both of those movies. Especially after watching Les Miserables...I need something less depressing. I like Ben Stiller, so Walter Mitty looked pretty good.

  16. So glad you're having a good trip! And enjoying time spent with your family! I had Winter's Tale checked out from the library a while ago but was never able to read it-- I definitely got it after seeing Sybil was in the movie-- though I never did end up seeing the movie either!
