Friday Favorites

on January 30, 2015

I cannot tell you how tremendously glad I am it is Friday. We’ve had a really up and down week, with some big professional successes (HUGE project done, new opportunities, etc) and some personal stresses, so I am really grateful for a weekend off. I should also be getting my official MarathonFoto pics sometime this weekend, which I’m looking forward to. πŸ™‚ You guys might be getting tired of all Star Wars all the time over here, so I’ll wait at least a week or so to share those, I promise.

For my official last Star Wars related post for a while, I have to link Greg’s post honoring the awesome cos players who entertained along the half marathon. He took a ton of pictures, so definitely go check it out here.

As a girl with some definite geek leanings (clearly), I love Desiree’s post about all of the awesome fitness role models in female geek-dom. A) She is totally right about Firefly and Serenity – definitely Firefly first and B) Now I definitely need to add Agent Carter to my watch list. Hopefully I can find the episodes I’ve already missed somewhere online?

At the beginning of the year, lots of us (me included) make a goal to focus more on quality food. Unfortunately, sometimes that gets really expensive. Laura’s post with tips on saving money on the things you buy organic is really handy and has lots of concrete tips. I’m considering adding the meat option to our local CSA order in the spring as we try to use more organic and antibiotic free meat options.

Thanks to Laura at ProjectLovelyLaura for leading me to the Fellow Flowers Declare It Day. I like any project that helps me to write down concrete goals (so powerful!) and LOVE that this is a February date, past the New Year’s sometimes-false-start of goal making. Definitely go over and check it out. I’ll be adding my own goal – sub 2:30 half marathon here I come!

One last recommendation: If you have any interest in runDisney, the discussion in episode 70 of the Disney Dish with Jim Hill Podcast (iTunes link here) is a really interesting look back at how huge enterprise came to be.

After such an up and down week, my goals for the weekend are simple: Run once, read lots and maybe treat myself to a glass of wine. After all, I’ve seen a post floating around on Facebook lately that says a glass of red wine is as good as an hour of exercise. πŸ™‚ Have a good weekend everyone!

I still need to look into our local CSA; been meaning to do it for ages! Love, love, love Fellow Flowers and am super excited to commit to my Declare It Day goal this year (to do a 2:30 half in the fall). Enjoy your weekend; I hope it’s relaxing and filled with lots of snuggles from two certain guys!
