Friday Faves #6

Hey everyone, this week has gone surprisingly fast. I’m very happy with it! I’m excited to watch college football this weekend and attend a Denver Nuggets game! It is finally winter in Denver, and I’m excited about it. I’m also heading to Winter Park for a ski day with a few friends on Saturday. I am so excited to finally get to the mountains and break out my ski gear. Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? On to this week’s Friday Faves #6

Friday Faves #6

Nordstrom Bar- Last week when I was in Chicago, there was a Nordstrom with a bar in it! I spent the afternoon working remotely, and I took a break by browsing at Nordstrom. I found this bar with drinks and food, and decided to finish working there. Side note, there are hardly any coffee shops on Michigan Ave in Chicago. I expected to see a Starbucks on every corner, but I had a hard time finding one. Even harder time finding one with an outlet.

New Asics- I ordered a new pair of Asics GT-2000 and they arrived last week. i’m obsessed with the color! Can’t wait to keep wearing them. If you are a neutral runner, I recommend these shoes!

Fantastic Beasts- I highly recommend this movie! The storyline was interesting, and the animations and special effects were awesome! I might be biased because I love the Harry Potter series, but I really had a great time at this movie with my dad.

Ring from HeartHouse Studio – Ordered this ring from Etsy a few weeks ago, and I’m really happy with how it turned out. I love amethyst- check out HeartHouseStudio for more awesome gifts!

Ambitious kitchen slow cooker taco lentil soup– made this great soup from AK this week. It was so tasty and just what I was looking for! Can’t wait to make it again! I added fresh avocado and cheese to top it!

Monday: Off after a long morning of travel. Early morning flights are the worst!
Tuesday: Fierce 45 lagree fitness, I spoke about this class a few weeks ago. This week between the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, I picked up a five pack to this class. I’m really excited about it. I always get a great work out in, and I leave feeling super sore.
Also, an 8 mile bike ride to work.
Wednesday: 8 mile bike ride to work. and a twelve minute circuit at my apartment. (More coming on that next week). Wow the bike commute is a lot more challenging in the cold. I wore my ski gloves to work for this week’s commute. Not sure how much longer this biking in the winter thing will last, but we will see.
Thursday: OTF, this was my favorite instructor’s last day at the studio. Sad day, but I had a great time at his class this week and every other week in the last couple years!
Friday: Swim
