Hey, girl. I see you’re wearing your party pants because it’s Friday.

Yaaaaas it is indeedy! We’re jazzed to recover from our first week back to reality. How did you all hold up? Hopefully it wasn’t too bad! Ours started out rough but smoothed out as the week went on. Now we’re ready to get back to the Friday Night Lights marathon that we left off on! See ya on Monday!

I’m not following the plan perfectly, because frankly fitting the gym into my schedule 5 days a week is nearly impossible. BUT I’m making an active effort to do at least 3 days a week. The moves are great because you can easily add or decrease weight or reps to make it more or less challenging.

Oh thank lawdy it’s Friday. We’ve both had our hands full at work these days, and definitely need to a little time to just unwind. Now that it’s finally warming up a bit over here, we can start going on walks, sitting on porches or in parks to read (blankets still required), and going on bike rides to relax and alleviate some stress. We’re hoping we can squeeze some time in for such leisurely delights these next couple of days.

Hope you all have beautiful weekends —

Can we just talk about this delicious looking truck for a second?! We don’t know if we’ve ever seen an automobile look so damn fine. Carb City, and we want in on that.

ANYWAYS, back to real life. We’re here with our Friday links (sorry for the radio silence last Friday, life can be so hectic sometimes!) Christa was in Colorado with Curtis visiting her brother from last Thursday-Tuesday (you may have seen some instagram pictures here & here), and this week has just been insane! I think the full moon week crazy-vibes came a week early…

But is everyone amped for the weekend? We’ll be spending it in Hartford together, shooting our first official contribution post for CT Eats Out! Can’t wait to team up with these guys and share with you all what we come up with. We’ll be doing a monthly post for them, so stay tuned!
