High Five for Friday!


Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you all have fun plans for the weekend! Weekends just never seem long enough. I have so much I want to see and explore!

I have my last long run this weekend (10 miles – 12 miles, I’ll see how I’m feeling) before heading to the Disneyland Half Marathon with my mom next weekend. I can’t wait for us to add another medal to our collections! Actually, we will get two medals because we will be completing our Coast-to-Coast Challenge. Woohoo!

Here are some of my favorite things from the past week:

1. Celebrating my Disney College Program’s one year anniversary! If you missed my post, be sure to read it. One of my roommates posted this adorable picture on Facebook, and I love it. This was our very first picture together. Thanks, Lori!

2. S’mores Coffee. I have been looking for s’mores coffee for over a year, and I finally found it at Target. S’mores coffee must be an Archer Farms’ summer blend since it’s on clearance, so I am glad I found it before Fall. I have to stock up before it is off the shelves. This coffee did not disappoint; it’s yummy!

3. Care packages. My parents sent me a care package this week, and I really appreciated it. Getting mail in general is exciting to me, whether it is a card or a magazine. A full care packkage complete with zucchini bread, motivational card and a few other goodies? Now that is above and beyond!

Wherever you go, go with all of your heart

(Almost all of the zucchini bread was gone before I thought about snapping a picture. I know, I know… trust me, pictures couldn’t do the deliciousness justice. Perfect texture + perfect taste = my mom’s zucchini bread)

I absolutely love this wristlet. It’s the perfect quote for me in this stage of my life! 

4. Pure Barre. I have been very interested in barre classes for years now, but have never had access to them. Now living in the Indianapolis Metro Area, I have access to a plethora of studios. Two Pure Barre locations are pretty close to me, so I went for my free trial class and purchased the unlimited month.

This workout is different than anything I have ever done before. I’m interested to see how (or if) it changes my body in the next month.

After my first class, they sent me a postcard in the mail thanking me for coming. That special touch really makes a difference! As I said before, I love getting things in the mail. 

5. Reading David and Goliath by Malcom Gladwell. This book is great. I am about halfway through it, and I don’t know if I have ever read such a thought-provoking book like this before. Gladwell challenges the way we perceive events that have happened, including David and Goliath from the book of 1 Samuel.

Are the underdogs truly the underdogs? Or, do they gain power from being perceived as the underdog? They do tasks in a different way, but is the way they do things really the better, more powerful way? So interesting!

Part one: David and Goliath

I am thoroughly enjoying reading this book in the mornings with my coffee and in the evenings. Check it out! 


Have a happy Friday and a great weekend! I’ll be back on Monday! Thanks for reading! : )

What do you have planned for the weekend?
Have you ever tried a Pure Barre class before? What did you think about it?
