Happy Friday friends! Can y’all believe we are officially in June? One thought keeps popping into my mind and I just keep trying to shove it right out…Can you guess what it is? Dare I say it out loud? It begins with a Christ and ends with a mas. You know what I’m talking about. We’re going to turn around 3 times and it’ll be upon us. And of course if we walk in Hobby Lobby next month they will literally have the decorations showing up on the shelves. STOP IT!
Back to the topic at hand. Friday Favorites.
I started a new workout and clean eating program this week that I will eventually share with y’all, but for now I’ll tell you it takes a bit of thought and preparation. It feels like most of what I’m doing is trying to figure out what I can make for meals that fall within the parameters of the plan. Katie jumped right in and is doing it along with me which is making it oh so much better. Having a partner makes it 110% easier.
HAHAHA! This is not what I’ve been doing, but it did crack me up when I saw it.
You (peri)menopause mama’s know exactly what I’m talking about…right? Please say yes and tell me I’m not alone. I have to thank my friend Jami for this. She had it on Facebook and I had to steal it. Have I shown you this before? Just kidding!
I shared this adorable top yesterday on my Casual Summer Essentials post, but it’s so cute I had to add it to my favorites. I found it on Nordstrom’s website one day this week and I have a big crush on it. It has me all heart eyed and sweaty palmed and I’m really thinking it might need to come live at my house. I would have already ordered it, but I don’t think I really have any place to wear it.
If you like to make protein drinks, shakes or smoothies you might want to give this a try.
I found this recipe on Pinterest and tried it for a snack yesterday afternoon. It was pretty good. I used this protein powder↓
We made one earlier in the week with almond butter and a banana, but this way was much better and I figure the coffee is a little pick me up too.
It was a slow week around our house and that’s all I’ve got to share today. Hope you enjoyed your 4 day week. I’d be okay with every week being a 4 day week. Wouldn’t you?
Have a great weekend!

Oh beautiful lady, do I ever hear you about the peri menopausal craziness, glad it's not just me losing my mind, lol. So I have been dreaming about that scalloped hem shoulder top and believe it needs to be in my closet! Yes to yummy protein shakes and YES TO FRI-YAY! Have an amazing weekend gorgeous lady!
You should totally get that top. It would be beyond adorable on you!!! I forgot to mention I LOVED your orange top and turquoise necklace. I really do think I'm going to order that one, it's so darn cute. Have a blast at the concert!!!
I love that meme about the kale. Hahaha! It always makes it so much easier when you have someone to motivate and sympathize with you. Enjoy your weekend! 🙂
You know I love a good meme!!! You enjoy yours too!
This Mama's holding her hand up on the peri-menopausal thing! OMG! I only slept like 3 hours the other night and woke up WIDE AWAKe!! I can't function on three hours!! Also, before I read the quote on the kale pic, I was like, oh she is NOT eating that crap! Which…you probably are and that's why you're skinnier than me! EAt your kale and have a great weekend!
YOU ARE A HOOT!!! I'm not eating kale…I have my limits…LOL
The sleep thing is so crazy. I see you awake on your snap stories?. I wake up with night sweats. They come and go…I wish they'd leave and stay away. hahaha. You have a great weekend too!

Kale's not that bad! I get a kale/spinach mix and have that for lunch on weekdays with Bolthouse vinaigrette. Why are you thinking about Christmas??? Are you shopping for presents already?
I love the Bolthouse dressings!!! No, it just keeps popping in my head. I know summer will fly by and BOOM it'll be the holidays!

Lisa, there are so many things that are cracking me up in this post! I wish I could chat with you in real life, I think we'd laugh like crazy ladies. I'd say damn you perimenopause if it would actually make a difference. Ugh, I'm over it. But it's nice to laugh about it because why not! Thanks to you I am obsessing over that top but I really have no place to wear it but dang it is precious! Have a marvelous weekend!
That would be so much fun if we could get together…there's a whole gang of us that would have a ball I suspect if given the chance. I'm like you, I want that top crazy bad, but I've got no place to debut it…oh well. I'll just look and drool. Happy weekend to you too! XOXO

I am cracking up at the chicken meme! Me and my husband say that to each other all he time. We are waiting for the days when we are too old to remember each other's stories and we can tell them over and over again.
Ugh, don't I know it. I just told my husband yesterday it scares me sometimes I can't find words. (he assures me it's normal?) Good to know I'm not alone. Happy Monday!!
