Good morning, friends! Happy Friday! Since this is the first time I’m checking in for a few weeks, I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and a fabulous New Year! We’ve had a LOT of stuff going on the past month. I plan on publishing a big update post soon! Until then, here is this week’s Friday Favorites!
James Avery Charm Bracelet
(Disclaimer: This shout out is part of my sponsored partnership with James Avery, a brand I truly love and have been wearing for years!)
I have been a long time fan of James Avery and have numerous pieces of their jewelry and love every one of them. I was gifted a charm bracelet as the newest addition to my collection along with an Oklahoma Charm. Starting off 2018 in my home state of Oklahoma makes the new year that much sweeter for me! I couldn’t think of a more perfect James Avery charm to represent this new chapter in our lives.
Travis Garza’s Fat Loss Camps
Never in my life did I think a 40 minute workout with a couple 8lb dumbbells would kick my booty until I attended one of Travis Garza’s classes yesterday. I bought a Groupon for 4 weeks of classes and, for only $40, it was a great purchase! I plan to attend regularly for the next 4 weeks as a jump start back into a normal workout routine!
Panera Bread You Pick Two
Nothing like following up a fitness post with a food post, am I right? But who can blame me, Panera Bread’s You Pick Two’s are amazing. While the hubby and I were up near my parents house for Christmas we popped into the local Panera to take a break from some last minute Christmas shopping. Their warm broccoli cheddar soup and frontega chicken panini is always my go-to choice. Delicious!
Starbucks Egg Bites
I hopped on an early morning flight from Houston to Tulsa for the holidays and by the time I got through security, my stomach was telling me it was time to eat. And I was also in dire need of a strong cup of coffee. I popped into Starbucks and ordered a grande pike and some sous vide egg bites with bacon and gruyere cheese. If y’all haven’t tried their egg bite yet, you are missing out! They’re protein packed and super light and fluffy! They were a great small breakfast to help tide me over until I got to Tulsa.
Whole30 Fast & Easy
The newest addition to my cook book collection is the Whole30 Fast & Easy. After thumbing through it a few times, I’ve found so many great recipes that I want to try. And from what I’ve heard, all of the recipes are truly fast and easy. A majority of them can be pulled together in 15-20 minutes!
