Friday Favorites

theSkimm

Have you heard of this email newsletter? It’s amazing and kind of life changing. A friend told me about it during the U.S. election but I never got around to signing up for it. Huge mistake. I’ve since jumped on the bandwagon and happily enjoy my morning coffee while skimming theSkimm (sooo meta). It’s an easy, digestible way to read about what’s happening around the world.

Weekend Get Aways

Last weekend Mike and I spent some time at Squaw, our favorite place to escape to (read about other trips here, here, and here). It was the epitome of a relaxing weekend. We slept in on Saturday morning before walking in gorgeous weather to lunch. After a giant pizza, we spent the rest of the afternoon by the pool (wine in hand).

We did a quick happy hour in the resort’s lobby and nibbled on our favorite cheese, Humboldt Fog, before getting massages. Fancyyyy, y’all.

Then we went to Six Peaks for a perfect, delicious dinner.

Cocktails and cheese

On Sunday we woke up early for a last dip in the pool. We left right after check out and met my dad at the Auburn Alehouse. It was such a good weekend. I barley took any pictures; left tons of texts unread; and, instead, enjoyed my time unplugging and relaxing with Mike.

I picked up these bad boys on a whim at Trader Joe’s and love them! They are literally just sparkling water and lemon juice. No added nuthin’. They’re great to have after dinner if you’re still wanting a little something more sans sugar, cals, or alcohol.

POPSUGAR fitness YouTube videos

I love YouTube and how easy it has made working out. You can find hundreds of free classes to do in the comforts of your own home. I tried this Muffin-Top-Melter class a few weeks ago and worked muscles I didn’t even know I had.

I also really like Yoga with Adriene, Bad Yogi, and Jessica Smith TV

Stone fruit

Nom nom. What’s better than stone fruit season? I’ve always loved peaches and nectarines and any fruit with a “stone” in the middle, really.  Lucky for me, there are brimming bowls at work. I’ve been eating one a day and I’m not complaining about it.

** Note this blog went through a rebrand and is now veg vibes; which aligns better with the direction I organically gravitated towards. It’s all about your vibe.**
