‘Friday… Friday, gotta get down on Friday…’ – man I hate that song… mostly because it gets stuck in your head and pings back in there every Friday like clockwork… sigh.
But then you remember it is actually Friday and don’t care about the song because nothing can spoil the thought of the weekend ahead! Hooray!
Time for a little ‘Friday favourites’ action now to help you get into the spirit of Friday love! Linking up with Heather @LifeinLeggings!
Moment – Catching up with fellow IIN students and grads!
Sadly I don’t have a photo but it was amazing on Sunday to relax and chill out with my peers for over 3 hours at brunch. Isn’t it fantastic when you can connect with a group of like minded people to discuss so many of our interests!? I honestly think we could have been there all day!
Feeling – Proud
David and I are so proud as our first batch of kombucha was 100% a success! I’m not going to lie, it was kinda scary the thought of brewing and lets face it, creating life! But the SCOBY did it’s job and produced the most delicious, thirst quenching booch! Just need to pick up some more tea and batch 2 will be on the cards!
Purchase – Birdcage candle holder
I don’t tend to buy many nick nacks for our house – most of our ornaments as such are from our travels throughout the years – I like to be surrounded by things that have a story. But when we were in Ikea on Tuesday to buy some bottles for our booch I spotted this and knew I had to have it. It’s just so pretty and fits in with our ‘middle eastern’ theme in our apartment. (I didn’t intend on a ‘theme’ it just kind of happened!).
Food/drink – Iced Coffee
The temps are rising here and I must admit I need a little ‘pep’ about mid morning. So I have a deal with myself, one coffee per day! To kill 2 birds I am combining my coffee need and need to cool down by brewing up some iced coffee! My favourite way to have it is with a little chocolate almond milk – hello iced mocha!
Recipe – Cotter Casserole
Ok so it’s actually called ‘sweet potato casserole’ but seen as it is by the beautiful and talented Lindsay Cotter we have dubbed it ‘Cotter Casserole’ in our house!
We subbed chicken sausage for ground kangaroo and it turned out beautifully! Check out Lindsay’s site for the recipe and for more amazing meal and snack ideas!
Workout – Its all about swole
Haha! I am dubbing this mornings CrossFit ‘ It’s all about swole’ as I finished this morning and my biceps were literally throbbing, they were huge! David kept on pointing them out afterwards! Bring on more muscles I say!
Here is the WOD
AMRAP 20 – 7 power cleans, 7 burpees, 200m run
Rest 2 mins
10 mins to achieve 2RM max hang power clean
100 banded pull aparts
100 banded tricep push downs
And now I have Billy Joel in my head…!
Weekend plans – farmers market, weekly shop, Mexican day of the dead celebration in town, skyping my parents and generally chilling out with David!
Happy Halloween if you are celebrating! Check out my tips on ‘How to survive Halloween’ here!
