Happy weekend! How was your week? Did you enjoy the weather?
My week was amazing and went by surprisingly quick. I ended up doing a bunch of recipe development, photoshoots (Stitch Fix post coming to you tomorrow), and also enjoyed the beautiful weather that we’re having in Chicago. Yesterday I ran EIGHT miles. Yes, 8. Might as well train for a half marathon at this point, right?
My big plans for the weekend include traveling to Alabama to see Tony for a week. I’m debating bringing some of my baking pans so that I can whip up a few batches of his favorite cookie. I swear I’m always putting the weirdest thing in my suitcases. Did I ever tell you about the time I put weights in my carry-on so that I could workout while I was traveling? The TSA had a frenzy and thought I was going to use them as weapons. But nope, was just trying to tone my arms and booty.
Anyway I do have to share some exciting news with you, so be sure to check back on the blog this Monday. Whoop!
Now let’s get to the good stuff… my favorite links from this past week. Also known as things you should obsess over this weekend.
