Things I’m Loving Lately #2

21 Nov

Happy Friday! Geez, this week was crazy, crazy, crazy and it certainly flew by for me! I am in disbelief that Thanksgiving is less than a week away and with that, there has been a lot going on so I haven’t had a chance to sit down and write this week. But I’ve had a few things on my mind lately that I have been loving so I thought today would be the perfect time to share with you guys!

  • Wedding planning: The wedding planning is in full swing and we have gotten quite a few things checked off of our list. This past Sunday I went bridesmaid dress shopping with most of my ladies (we missed you, Sam!) and I think everyone got a pretty good idea of what they are going to get (I’m doing same color/length but different styles). Since that was such a success I decided that night was the perfect time to order our save the dates! After quite a bit of work (thank you Alex and Carlee!) we decided on a magnet design that we absolutely love from Vistaprint and the great news is that not only were they very affordable, they have already arrived! I will definitely be using Vistaprint again for things like Christmas cards in the future.
  • 19 Kids & Counting: I was never really into this show until this year but I think this family is absolutely hilarious. Now I will be the first to say that I do not agree with many of their views (some that have recently been in the news) but I think they are so much fun to watch. My favorite moment so far would have to be Ben’s proposal to Jessa which was SO romantic and beautiful.
Freaking hilarious!

  • Adriatiks Restaurant: This is a cute little Italian/Greek restaurant right down the street from our apartment. We had been meaning to try this place forever and the other night I didn’t feel like cooking so we ordered takeout. I had been craving a gyro and I ended up getting the Chicken Souvlaki which is basically a chicken gyro (I’m not a fan of lamb) and it was AMAZING. It certainly fulfilled my craving and I can’t wait to eat there again. Dan had a Chicken Parm grinder and he said was very flavorful as well.
There was not one single French fry left standing ;)

  • My recent workouts: Although I definitely agree with Caitlin’s post from yesterday in that I feel like I haven’t been going to the gym as much I want to. However, I really feel that the workouts I am fitting in have been quality ones. This week I have been a big fan of varying things so I’ve been combining the treadmill, elliptical, and some weights. I am finally starting to see what people say about weight-lifting burning a lot of fat because I feel like that is making the most difference although I really enjoy my cardio so I won’t be giving that up anytime soon.
I definitely left the gym tired after this one!

Alright, that is all I have for you guys today! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend 🙂
