Favorite Finds 1.18.15

rGood morning and happy Sunday, y’all! It’s a deary day here, but we’re planning to make the most of it and have a lot on the agenda. One of which is running five miles. I have my sights on a 10-mile race in early March so I’m slowly trying to increase my mileage. So far, so good. Although, my knee gets a little wonky when I do speed work.

This is my first Favorite Finds post of 2015 – woo hoo! I’m in the midst of reorganizing my Pinterest boards so they’ll be a little more straightforward. I apologize in advance if some boards are empty or pins aren’t in the correct category. I hope to finish soon.

Home CrossFit WOD: 600 Reps by Blonde Ponytail: I’ve never done a CrossFit workout, but this one looks easy enough… The exercises that is, not tare 600 reps {ha!}. It would be great if I could get my workout done while Evie naps and not have to wait until Ryan gets home from work. I don’t have kettlebells at home, but dumbbells should work fine.

Oreo Peanut Butter Popcorn by Crazy for Crust: When I started breastfeeding I got a hankering for cookies, particularly {chewy} M&M sugar cookies and Oreos. At the time, Pumpkin Spice Oreos flooded the supermarket shelves, but when we went back for more they were out of season so we moved onto Cake Batter. Don’t buy them, they’re addicting and you won’t wanna share with anyone. This popcorn incorporates three of my favorite foods so I have no doubt I’d love it.

Oreo-Peanut-Butter-PopcornOrganic and Original Clothes and Shoes for Baby by Growing Up Wild: Cute onesies and booties are stapes in Evie’s wardrobe – the easier to take off for a diaper change, the better. These {organic} onesies and coordinating booties are both adorable and environmentally friendly. Plus, I’m a sucker for bows and headbands.

Quote: With all of the changes that are going on in our lives, it’s easy to get caught-up in things that are out of our control. This quote is a great reminder that we can’t control everything.


Spaghizza by Money Saving Mom: I’ve seen a few pictures of spaghetti pie on Instagram lately, so I had to do some research. It’s essentially a baked pasta dish {think lasagna, minus the ricotta} with all of the classic pizza ingredients. What’s not to like?


Frozen Olaf Valentines {Free Printable} by One Creative Mommy: It’s no secret that kids {and some adults} these days are completely obsessed with the movie Frozen. These Valentine’s Day cards are sure to be a hit.

Top 27 Places In The US That Foreigners Are Craziest About Visiting by Rosey News: Before looking at this, I thought I was pretty well-traveled. I’ve been to all of the states on the east coast, down south, a few out on the west coast, and a couple in the middle of the country… But after looking at this list, I’ve realized that I have a lot more traveling to do. There are so many beautiful places that I have yet to see!

White Kitchen by little house BIG PLANS: My mom designed the kitchen in my childhood home and it was simply gorgeous. Floor to ceiling white cabinets, white/wood paneled appliances, white granite counters, white and blue wall paper and accents. The kitchen in our current house has white cabinets, but black granite and dark gray floors, so it’s not very bright. Oh, what I would give to have a custom-built kitchen.
