Linking up with the lovely “Life In Leggings” to bring you my Friday favourites! This weekend I have three great things I can’t wait to share with you …

1. Hello totes



Seriously, do I need to say more? LOVE THIS TOTE! I bought two awesome totes from Hello Totes (they ship to CANADA!!).

And I just love the energy and positivity that this small business owner strives to share with the world. For more information and other great designs check out her website here.



2. Mizunos 

Love my runners! I MUST REPLACE them before my 1/2 marathon (anyone, suggestions of a particular Mizuno style?), but there is a little more life left in these great sneakers. One of our local Running Rooms highly recommended this brand and style when I was getting back into running, and I don’t think that I could ever try a new brand! Light weight, awesome colors and amazing support!


These sneakers have travelled the world: Geneva, Washington, and Dubai. In fact, I even wore these sneakers when I ran in the Dubai Marathon last year. Amazing memories!

 3. New Books

My little family and I love BOOKS! Unfortunately, I don’t get to read as much as I use too, but when I do … I remember exactly why I loved to read as a kid.  Recently, my focus has shifted and I have been reading a lot of books related to health and fitness. This is such a great way to stay motivated and focused on my goals. I just ordered the following book: The New Rules of Lifting for Women: Lift Like a Man, Look Like a Goddess. SUPER excited to crack them open and to be able to apply what I learn during my fitness journey.

I love linking up with Life In Leggings on Friday’s to share my favourites from the week (I try to share those things that really make me smile and keeps me going for the week to come). If you want to join the fun, click the badge below!

wpid-dsc_0243.jpg1. Homemade Scones: So it’s a wonder I can keep my form since my husband discovered the joys of making homemade scones. He first mastered a savoury scone (cheddar and chives) and now, he has discovered a delicious blueberry and lemon flavoured scone. The burst of the blueberry and the tartness of the lemon remind me of springtime and summer.


2. Date Nights: These moments are rare right now for us with our little one. When we do get to go out for a night on the town we like to try new restaurants. This past weekend we tried a local Mexican themed restaurant we have had our eye on for a while.



The food was okay, but the company made the evening so much better. It is always so satisfying to show how much you appreciate each other (sans bebe).



3. Challenges: Well I would not be me if I did not challenge myself constantly. One of those challenges starts tomorrow – Saturday is the beginning of my Group Fitness Instructor training. Two days of intensive training! Can I handle this? I also just received my results from my Basic Theory Course, 94% baby!



4. Hair Accessories: So I have been waiting for 22 plus months to finally tie a small ponytail and put a clip in my sweeties hair. The long wait is over. Look at her, it’s adorable!





5. Playdates: I always love reconnecting with the ladies and babies (now toddler) my little one and I spent the majority of our time while I was on maternity leave with … running, chatting and drinking coffee. Many of these lovely ladies are already enjoying time off again with their newest arrivals or will soon be welcoming a new bundle to their beautiful families. Our kids have grown together over the last almost two years and it is amazing to watch how comfortable they are together and how well they play.
