Weekend Favorites: 4.29.16

How is it almost May? Also, I’m looking for fitness/heart rate tracker recommendations in this week’s favorites. Grab a coffee and enjoy!

Can you believe that it’s almost May?! What is happening and where on earth does the time go? That makes me sound like I’m much older, but seriously. We moved into our apartment in October of last year and it still feels like it was almost yesterday. I finally just finished decorating my office and now we’re starting on our bedroom. Thus I stalk Pinterest like a crazy MF.

P.S. Outside of food, I feel like I could 100% be a home/lifestyle blogger.

Moving on…

This past week: I hit up a few pizza places in preparation for my Chicago Series that I’ve been working on. People always ask me about deep dish, but there are SO many incredible pizza joints in Chicago to try outside the DD. I’ve been trying to diligently pace myself with the pizza, but damn, I’ve had a few really good slices and can’t wait to share them with you.

In an effort to balance things out, I’ve been trying to get in extra steps. I normally just use the health app on my iPhone, but would love to hear what your favorite step trackers are. I’ve heard good things about the FitBit, but realistically I’m looking for something that also has a heart rate monitor so I can track it during workouts. I’m mostly concerned with the accuracy of the wrist watches and heart rate monitors in them. I’ve heard from a few people that it can be off, but would love to hear your thoughts!

This weekend, we’re on the hunt for entryway furniture and I plan on buying a macbook for when I travel. Ever since I got my iMac, I’ve been meaning to jump on the apple laptop bandwagon! SO EXCITED.

Next week: I’m headed to Minnesota to hang out with Lee and work on a project! Other than that, I’ve been trying to keep a low profile on the travel until I’m done with a few more projects.

Okay, there’s not much else, so let’s check out my favorite links from this past week:
