it’s friday, i’m in love….

happy friday-it’s white and gold-goddammit!– to you m’loves.

apparently my husband and i aren’t the only ones now in marriage counseling over “that dress.”

families and friendships are cracking up all over the country.

screw the red states and the blue states; please divide us into white + gold vs blue + black states instead—-cuz i’m sure as hell not hanging with those psychos who see blue/black.

in the spirit of silly, here are a few other things making me chuckle:
coffee

but first, this coffee mug and i need to have a make-out session, STAT.

app

are you geeking out over the perfect365 app too?

designed for the selfie + filter obsessed– {YOU know who YOU are….your friends and family don’t know who you are because you filter the shit out of your face on-line, but that’s a different post;} the perfect 365 app allows you to photo shop an entire sephora store on your mug for those photos that need a little more gloss, hair volume, and contour.

baby

but let’s be honest it’s so much more fun to lean toward the ridiculous.

i’m crushing hard on this new mom who used it on her 7-week old son; my kind of mommy fo’sure–let’s start a playgroup NOW!

beast

 my little person isn’t here yet, so my buffonery is still constrained to the beasts.

and yes, my husband’s silent treatment has been extended until monday.

beach

remember my girl crush post with christina sinclair?

this week i was honored to be featured on christina’s fab blog: beach babe fitness.

head on over to see how i got started in the fitness industry and some of my guilty pleasures {hint: four-letter words raise my serotonin levels.}

speaking of my penchant for profanity, whoever curated this list obviously knows my birthday is coming up.

check out the 19 perfect gifts for people who love to swear. i’m especially partial to the birthday banner, and think this needlepoint would look beautiful in the nursery.

 while we’re on the birthday subject, do you know what the number one song was on the day you were born?

this fun website tells you what your parents were fox-trotting to as you de-birth canaled.

who out there can top my bellamy brothers’ “let your love flow?”

but if easy-rolling, 70’s soft rock isn’t your groove, maybe like me, you’ll dig rihanna’s new song towards the sun from the soundtrack to the new animated movie from dreamworks, “home.

so there you have it!

my friday loves–which always includes YOU!

wishing you a sunny, gold + white, winter weekend.

see you on the other side of sunday.

it’s friday, i’m in LOVE!

friday

happy candy-coated friday to you my kittens!

are you in the mood for love?

even if you’re a valentine’s day hater {to be honest i kind of am, too} i have rounded up a few things that i hope will make you smile, swoon, gratefully belch, and leave you rubbing your tummies with glee.

but first, if you prefer tear drops over cream in your coffee, read the story behind this heart-shaped meadow; this widower’s ode to his beloved wife had me boo-hooing all over my keyboard this morning.

for reading a little less tragic, but still sweet, i ooohed and sighed over this article on how we all can learn from animal friendships.

…and just like that, i suddenly, now, have a hankering for a pet rhino.

i can personally attest; some of my truest, longest, + dearest love affairs have been with these four-legged angels.

and speaking of celestial beings; who’s gonna make this heart-shaped pizza for me?

head on over to how sweet eats and dinner: a love story for the cutest recipes for your valentine’s day pizza party—i would much prefer pizza over any chocolate-covered strawberry or caviar dish…but i’m trashy that way.

 champagne is off my valentine menu this year, but that doesn’t mean i’m not going to splurge on something sparkly. these aranciata rossa’s from san pelligrino are the perfect non-alcoholic, bubble-parties for your champagne flute.

flavored with REAL blood orange juice, these crisp, effervescent spritzers transport you right to the italian riviera; a nice little mid-february pick-me-up without the hangover.

laundry

is anyone else addicted to these in-scent laundry boosters?

if your wardrobe is more lululemon that lanvin and you like your yoga hot, your spin class swampy, and barre dripping with sweat, then you must add these to your wash + dry repertoire.

bounce bursts + downey unstoppables have changed the game in our laundry room.

gone are the days of the double, triple wash….one-capful of these magic beads and your clothes come out smelling farmer’s market-fresh.

~update: i recently found out these are NOT cruelty-free so i do NOT recommend them.

it’s no secret, i think the fifty shades of grey soundtrack is pretty banging! i’ve already overplayed the shit out of ellie goulding’s “love me like you do” in my classes, and the new beyoncé remake of “crazy in love” is hotter than georgia asphalt. but i think my new favorite track is AWOLnation’s remake of the bruce springsteen hit “i’m on fire.”

finally, are you guys watching “the jinx?“—–SO good!! SO creepy!

it’s a serial documentary on HBO that started this week {you have plenty of time to catch the first episode before the next installment airs this sunday night.}

they made a movie about bob durst a while back, “all good things“,–it was more of an “okay” thing, but this new series is worth your time.

so that’s all i got…valentine love to you and yours.

see you on the other side of sunday.

best laid plans…..

February 12, 2015

 

katie

what is it that they say about best-laid plans?

i had a grand scheme for these nine-plus months of uterine hospitality:

~visions of my water breaking at the 41st week, in the gym shower, post record-breaking calorie expenditure in my spin and pilates classes.

~a diet of 100% organic, vegetarian meals tastefully spread throughout my day at 3-hour, blood-sugar friendly intervals; invigorating me through all the catch up coffee-dates and afternoon walks with my dearests.

~a maternity style to rival nicole richie: teeny tanks coupled with toothpick jeans would alternate easily with the same maxi-dresses i’ve been wearing for last decade.

~my silky, prenatal vitamin-induced, pantene commercial hair flowing long and untangled down my cocoa-buttered, pilates-toned back.

~today was supposed to have been day six of me frolicking in a bikini, downing fresh coconut and pineapple smoothies, lounging on the sand with hunkiest as we celebrated our romantic babymoon in hawaii.

but instead i sit here at home, medically restricted from any type of travel, wearing my 3rd, new bathrobe in 6 months {two sizes larger of course} trying to keep my daily bowl of campbell’s bean with bacon soup down for the second time this morning.

every, single, date, meal, and outing i’ve made with friends and family, i have had to last-minute cancel due to nausea.

that glossy head of hair, promised to me by all the mommy blogs is, in actuality, a tangled, parched, rat’s nest that has become a playground for snarls, split ends and most likely fleas.

but what makes me most heavy-hearted is having to go on official leave from work—those dirty braxton hicks seem to arise every time i teach, and my doctor has officially pulled the plug on my microphone.

i really had intended to teach all the way up to “labor day,” and i feel like such a loser for not keeping that commitment to my incredibly supportive managers {wes + dani.}

so until my little person is evicted i am taking a seat in the back row; still working out but without the microphone, old skool rap and obnoxious hair flips.

but all of it so worth it for the mini-me i’m lucky enough to have growing inside me.

thursday happy to you m’loves.
