Fit Friday!

I haven’t done one of these posts in a while!  One of the highlights of visiting my Mom & Dad in Texas was getting to attend bootcamp with my Mom.  You can read about it here.  Another great thing about my visit was that they gave me an awesome outfit from Lululemon.  I can’t tell you how much I love the Run Tracker Skirt that they gave me!  It is super cute…and it has some great features – super wide & comfy waistband (no room for a muffin top to peek out), a great zip pocket, and this gripper stuff on the legs of the shorts underneath so they don’t creep up.

Also…they gave me the Run Pep Tank.  It is so soft!  It actually feels like silk.  It also has a hidden back pocket.  Love it!

My Mom and I have a motto “If you have a cute running outfit on, you have to at least run 4 miles – otherwise it is a waste of a cute outfit”.  I guess I will be running more miles – because this is a really cute outfit!  Thanks Mom & Dad!

Give Away! Lawry’s…

One of my favorite things about Summer is grilling out.  Not only does it taste good, it keeps my kitchen cool.  We love experimenting with different marinades.  Lawry’s has some great new marinades out – my favorite is Tuscan Sun-Dried Tomato Marinade (extra virgin olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, sweet red bell peppers and herbs).  Yum!  While my daughter has been in China we tried to feel a little bit closer to her by using the Szechuan Sweet & Sour BBQ Marinade (sweet, sour, and a little heat).  They are both amazing!  The best thing about them is that there is absolutely no work involved…open the bottle and pour it on.  Thanks Lawry’s!  I want to give one of you the chance to create your own grilling magic. This prize pack includes a Lawry´s “Get Grilling Kit” that includes the new Lawry´s marinades – Tuscan Sun-Dried Tomato and Szechuan Sweet & Sour BBQ – a set of skewers and a marinating dish. Entering is easy….simply comment on this post – what is your favorite thing to grill out? Have a good recipe?  You could even share it with me!  Contest will close on Sunday August 1st (in honor of my husband’s birthday – he loves to grill out).  I will randomly pick a comment to win!

Want more grilling tips & recipes?  Visit Lawry’s for some great ideas!

The Lawry´s products, information and additional prize pack to give away were all given to me from Lawry´s through MyBlogSpark.

I found a great websit & blog the other day.  FunnySpoon.  Don’t you just love the name?  Here is what they have to say about themselves -

Cooking doesn’t have to suck. It can be simple and, dare we say, fun if done right. Our recipes use grocery store short-cuts with less than 8 items and 5 steps. Goodbye complicated meals, hello easy dinners on busy nights. You’ll thank us later so … you’re welcome.
They have a ton of recipes that just use a few simple ingredients that you can easily find in any grocery store.  Here is an example of one of the recipes (they also give written instructions) -

Spinach Pita Pizzas -

Anzio & Sons Pita Bread

Athenos Crumbled Feta Cheese (6 oz.)

Classico Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto (10 oz.)

Dole Baby Spinach

World Classics Trading Company Roasted Red Peppers

TMI? Maybe.

This might be TMI for you…but I found a new bra that I love!  It is a new Bra by Barely There called the CustomFlex Fit Bandini 2 pack.  I love it because it is so comfortable – I promise.  You don’t even feel like you have bra straps on.  It is like they made a bra out of a t-shirt, it is that comfy.  It comes in a 2 pack and there are about 10 different ways to wear the two bras (together or alone).  I picked mine up at Kohls for around $20 for the 2 pack.  This is the perfect bra for Summer – lightweight, breathable, and comfy.  It is kind of like a sports bra but not as constrictive.

I wish I had thought of this…

I love little kid writing – you know with the really cute “sounded out” spelling.  This is a great way to turn your child’s cute little note into an art piece for your home.
