Friday Favorites

Hello friends! I know that my posting has been a bit all over the place and I'm doing my best to commit to a set routine during the week, but as we all know life happens, especially as summer nears and weeknights / weekends start to fill up! I'm still in a bit of shock as to how it's already June! If these first 6 months are any indication of the next 6 months, then life is not going to slow down! It's been a while since I've linked up with Amanda, so let's start out June with some favorites! 
We're Home Owners!! This is obviously my absolute favorite of the day, week, month & year!! The opportunity to buy our current condo came up after we returned from our California trip & we pounced on it!! You'll be seeing a lot of DIYs (we already started with this one) over the next few months because G's "Honey Do List" is growing by the day! Thank you so much to everyone who commented on Instagram & for all of your well wishes - we're pretty pumped!! 
I actually didn't go too crazy during the Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale, but I did pick up these super cute espadrilles that come in 8 different color options & I can't wait for them to arrive. My other espadrilles were absolutely worn through the soles, so it was time! I think they are going to be perfect for Summer! 
I've been on a spin class kick over the last few months so when the folks over at Recycle Studio asked me to take one of their classes I couldn't wait to try it!  They have two studios in Boston and I love the location of the Boston Common one! I have yet to take the plunge and purchase my own spin shoes, so I was happy that they have that with the class. Side note, I feel like the soreness you get after you're wearing proper spin shoes is so much more than just tennis shoes! The staff, music & class were all fantastic!! G is actually a fan of their classes as well, so we can't wait to go back together! I also just started an 8 week team training class at my gym. It's only a half hour once a week and the instructor is one of my favorites, so I'm excited to be pushed to the limit at least once a week!! It's always nice to change up your routine and trick your body! 
I've been doing my best to switch up our weeknight / sunday dinner's. I usually opt for things that take no more than 10 minutes to prep & 30 minutes to cook. When I spotted this seared salmon with watermelon tomato avocado salsa it screamed summer and fresh to me! Hoping to try it out this Sunday! 
After two back to back events this week I'm looking forward to a very lazy weekend at home! Hope you all have something fun planned! See you back here Monday for the weekending link up!

  21. I'm SO happy for you, girl, congrats again! I wasn't sure if you purchased a new home, since I know that you both just recently moved into the condo; that's AWESOME that you were presented with the opportunity to buy it!!! I can't wait to see all the fun DIY's you have lined up. I didn't do any shopping during the Nordstrom Sale because I'm waiting for the anniversary and by then, I'll have the little one and will probably do more shopping for her than anything else, haha. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!

  39. Yay! Congratulations! The gym looks amazing! I have been thinking about buying a home but I am not 100% set on staying here! I just ordered Blue Apron because I am the worst at cooking for one! I hope it will motivate me to cook and help me learn new recipes. I know it's pricey so I might just do it until I can make great meals on my own! xoxo -Bri
