Friday Favorites (June 23, 2017)

Happy Friday! Another weekend is upon us. What a wonderful feeling!

It’s been a great week over at Keller Manor, because my mom and dad have been in town watching our Maggie-girl while our sitter and her family are on vacation this week. We’ve loved (and appreciated!) having them here, and it’s obvious Maggie has had a blast this week, too.

(It was also so fun giving away an adorable UpDog Kombucha tank top earlier this week to one lucky blog reader. I have lots more fun giveaways planned for this summer, so be sure to stay tuned for those.)

Okay, on to some things I’ve been loving this past week:

  • We made tacos for dinner Monday night (using romaine lettuce in place of shells or tortillas, which is an easy way to lighten things up) and I tried a new side dish: Mexican Cauliflower Rice. We looooove cauliflower rice at our house, and I was glad to discover that this super easy recipe is delicious, too. I’ll be making this again!

  • Since it’s summer again, it’s full-blown smoothie-for-breakfast season for me. (I’ll share my recently changed thoughts on protein smoothies soon!) I’ve enjoyed this new Ello Kella BPA-Free Glass Sipper as a way to take my smoothie from home to work each day in style. So cute and summery!

  • Winston-Salem is now the home of a Lidl grocery store. (Pronunciation: LEE-del) What’s Lidl? (Yeah, I didn’t know until recently, either!) It’s a German grocery store similar in many ways to Aldi. They’re known for low prices and quality private label brands. My parents, Maggie, Kevin, and I stopped by on Monday evening to check things out and were impressed by the selection, the price, and the distinct European feel. In addition to food, they sell a random assortment of items (which cycle in and out). When we were there, they had things like baby onesies and gardening gloves and headphones. We’ll be back for sure!

Hope y’all have a fun weekend ahead! I’m looking forward to touring the brand new (and beautiful) birth center in Winston-Salem during their open house event tomorrow and to the FREE pop-up Pure Barre class our studios are hosting this Sunday morning at Village Juice. So many fun things happening! Hope to see some of you local folks there.
