Friday Faves

Happy Friday friends!!! It's been a gorgeous week which has just made me want to play hooky from work and dilly dally around outside all day long, but alas, I had to put on my adult pants and actually go to work--luckily today is a teacher workday so hopefully I can write my progress reports from my laptop while outside! :)
But now it's the weekend (almost) and time to play!
First, let's talk about some faves from this week!
{1} Summer Travel
We've started making plans for some summer travel and trips. We already have at least one week at the shore with MG's family, and this week we booked a house on a lake for a long weekend to surprise MG's dad for his 70th birthday! The house looks INSANE and we have it for 4 nights this summer. I can't wait until we surprise him with the plans in June and then get to celebrate all together at this beautiful house on the lake!
Plus, there's another pretty major dream trip in the works for MG and I....more on that soon hopefully!

{2} Beach Body On Demand
{via}
You guys have heard me talk about my love of various Beach Body programs on here like Cize and Piyo. Cize is by far the biggest workout love of my life--it's SO much fun, I never feel like it's work, and I always end up panting and sweating by the end! Well, I jumped on the BOD train which gave me access to other BeachBody programs like P90X, T25, and bonus Cize workouts (which was the part I was most excited about). I've loved it! I look forward to getting home and doing one of the Cize routines.  I have the free 30 day trial going now, but after that it's like $12 a month. Yes please!
I'll do a full review of Cize soon, since I love it so much.

{3} Favorite Recipe
This week MG and I tried baked crab stuffed salsa avocados for dinner as a healthier meal option and oh my word were they delicious! We had them with a side of roasted balsamic brussel sprouts and it was amazing!! Definitely a great lighter meal for the warmer months and will totally be being made again! Recipe coming soon, but teaser picture here:

{4} Show
Have you guys heard of the show Catastrophe on Amazon? My friend told me about it the other week and MG and I started watching it this past weekend and are almost done with the second season (each season is only 6 episodes, 25 minutes each). It's kind of crude at certain points, but some of the dialogue is really funny and has us laughing a lot. If you're looking for a new show, check it out. The main guy is definitely my favorite.
Check out this interview with the two of them to get a better idea of what I'm talking about.

{5} Funnies
When you see people in public doing this, you know Snapchat added new filters:
What I want to say when someone goes on and on in a conversation about the same thing over and over and you just want to stop talking to them
{via}
When you have a rough day at work dealing with tough parents/lazy coworkers
{via}
How bloggers feel when they try new make up products
{via}
That's it for me today! Me and this chick hope you all have an easy day and a fantastic weekend!

  16. There was randomly a commercial or infomercial on piyo when we were on vacation last weekend and it looked so good! I've only done T25 and insanity (not the entire thing!), but I'd like to look into some of the other beachbody workouts. That vacation house looks amazing-- that tub and those views! I keep seeing Catastrophe pop up, but haven't heard much about it- I might check it out once we finish up Daredevil!
