Five on Friday {May 2, 2014}

It's Friday. And I love me some Fridays!

No reason to beat around the bush, let's jump on in...

Yoga at the Cove. I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally announce our collabo with Sweat, Cycle & Soul for our first {of hopefully many} Yoga at the Cove events.  Yoga. Under the sun. Live DJ. Cocktails. Shopping. Wine samples. Lululemon. Mini massages. Giveaways. Junk headbands. Juices. Cupcakes. And so much more. Seriously, it's the place to be.

If the event itself doesn't sound kick ass {well, let's be honest, then you may just have problems}, maybe the fact that our guy Eric Church filmed his "Drink in my Hand" video at our Stir Cove will get you a little excited. He said himself that the Church Choir in the Cove was just too great not to film. I'll drink to that!

Tone It Up Bikini Series. Eight weeks until summer, so putting a little more focus on my workout definitely doesn't hurt. And I love these girls. How cute are they? And while I'm at it, I'm also doing the #100bySummer - running 100 miles from now until 6/21. I've decided just to count running. Gives me a reason to get out to Lake Zorinsky.

It's that time of the year. The Omaha Farmers Market is back. And this mama couldn't be happier. I love love love making this a Sunday staple. After a workout, I grab my babe and a coffee, walk in the sun, check out the goods, grab some breakfast, play in the park. It's perfection. Even better if I can talk Nick or one of my gals to join.

The gals and I got together Saturday morning for Color Me Rad. Seriously everything about it makes me happy. The color. The running. The fact that loads of people pay actual money to have colored powdered thrown all over them while running. Trust me, you will want to pay money to have colored powder thrown all over you. It is that much fun.

And those people at Color Me Rad know exactly how to throw one damn good party. Seriously. If you are in Omaha/CB - sorry suckas, you missed your shot. But sign up next year. If you live in another part of the country - check out their map. There may just be a race coming your way and you don't want to miss it!

It's that time of the year. The time of weddings. I love weddings. Is that weird? And I think I love weddings even more now that I have little man in my life. That kid is a blast. And he can dance. Boy, can he bust a move. He definitely doesn't get that from his mama. Oh, and I can justify a second piece of cake because I tell people "it's for Cruz."

Along with weddings comes wedding showers with wedding gifts. I am all about giving cold hard cash for showers and weddings. Why, you may ask? Because. The receiver can do whatever the heck they want with the cash. Want to put it toward your honeymoon? Do it. Want to have a celebratory dinner out after the big day? Do it. Want to use it to buy a new pair of shoes? Hell yes, do it!

But I can't just give a card with cash in it. Nope. I like to have something that is a little personal. Which is why I started making these prints. I just love giving a little something they can look back on all the special details of their fabulous day.

And not only that, but I also love doing the same thing for new, little babes in my life. I started making the subway art with one for Cruz's nursery - lord knows I wouldn't remember all those important details! - and have since given them to friends and family right after they have their little.

Well, there you have it. My most random list of  fives from the week. I hope you have a fab weekend and wishing you all some of the gorgeous weather we are supposed to have around these parts. I'm sensing a trip to the farmer's market (obv), a stroll around the zoo and a mommy/Cruzer brunch date in my future.


  1. Those prints are awesome! That in and of itself is a great gift! I've done a Color Run and loooooved it. Fun runs are the best. I'm not really sure how you don't already have the body of those tone it up girls but okay....
