It’s Friday!!! Next weekend we will be in Utah for our annual ski trip which makes me so happy. Skiing is one of those rare activities that we can all do as a family. It’s a few days of great conversation on the ski lifts, great food, lots of laughs and the best part a few days of quality time with family. My only hope is snow on the ground and not freezing temperatures.
So this week I found some new favorites . . . .
Kodiak Cakes, Power Waffles
Seriously, these are amazing, healthy and full of protein and my new breakfast obsession! Toasted with nut butter is a great breakfast or snack! I found these at Target and they are available at most grocery stores and Whole Foods.

This has been a game changer for me when it comes to running and working out. No more worrying about where to put my key, id, and phone. When I am out for a long run – I now easily carry my water in the fit belt. It fits snug on my waist, lays flat and nothing moves. I actually don’t even feel it on – it feels just like the waistband of my workout leggings. It’s great for walking, biking, hiking or at the gym!
Grace & Frankie
My new favorite show on Netflix . . . season 4 released last week and I’ve been watching all this week. If you haven’t watched this series yet . . . go do it! Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are reason enough to watch but this show is funny, quirky and sends a great message about the importance of girlfriends!
Yes, this is little roller made my favorites because it is awesome for your muscles and has made a such a difference in my body.
Do you roll? Foam rolling is like giving yourself a deep tissue massage! By slowing rolling over various areas of your body, you help your muscles heal, prevent injuries and speed up the recovery process.
I actually foam roll before and after I workout as a way of warming up and cooling down. I have found I am less sore and rolling helped me recover quicker from an overuse injury.

Button Fly Jeans
I rarely shop at Loft but they are having a 40% off EVERYTHING SALE (50% if you have a LOFT card) so I stopped in to check it out. Their sale is still going on and they have some super cute things, check it out here.
I saw these button fly jeans and knew I had to have them. They are a higher rise which is a great thing, have lots of stretch so comfortable, look great with sneakers or flats and the buttons make them unique and adorable!!! I am going to wear these all the time!
FYI, I sized up to 27 which is actually a size 4 at Loft.
