Friday Favorites Round-Up!!

It has been a whirlwind of a week, but so much fun!! I've had something going on every night after work so I'm looking forward to a little sushi date tonight!!! I've got a few fun posts for next week and can't wait to share them with you all! Linking up with two gorgeous ladies, Amanda and Christina for another round of favorites!

Favorite Workout 
Me with two of my co-workers
I have another race under my belt and while I am by no means a "runner," I'm pretty happy with my time and my new found exercise activity!! 
Also, thought I'd share the only good photo from the Harpoon Five-Miler I ran a few weekends ago...check out the couple holding hands behind me!! 

Favorite Look
Blake Lively looked unreal at this weeks CFDA Awards. I love the 70's style hair with the scalloped dress and the perfect blush heels!! I mean this girl can do absolutely no wrong!! 

Favorite Recipe
~our photo did not come out quite as pretty~
Giving total props to my hubby for making this recipe for us this week. I had mentioned it for Cinco de Mayo, but we totally forgot and didn't make it!! Well I highly suggest trying it - very filling! We added a side of rice to complete the meal! 

Favorite New Restaurant
I had a wonderful dinner on Tuesday night at a fairly new Boston area restaurant - The Merchant! The food, atmosphere and service were all top notch - I'm looking forward to going back and trying their Crab Cakes!!

  12. I totally agree with you on the run but not a "runner" comment. It took 11 races and almost a year of running before I caved in to the runner label. Also... Blake Lively does no wrong, ever, and I need her dress!

  17. Congrats on another race! I keep saying I'm going ot run a 5k this year, and I think I need to just sign up for one so I have to start running to get myself in shape for it! I loved Blake's outfit as well- I wasn't as crazy about her hair, though it definitely felt very retro!

  25. Girl...I'm needing you to go runing with me! I'm trying to get better, but the struggle is very, very real. I'm dying after 3/4 a mile! And no thank you to anyone touching me while I'm running. Holding hands? Def not. Oh...and I have a girl crush on Blake Lively for sure! Hope you have the best weekend! xo

  28. Go you runner gal!! I used to run like 45 minutes on a tread mill, but outside on the ground was A WHOLE OTHER STORY. Running is hard work but builds legs of steel! Love the couple holding hands!!
