Friday Faves 5.26 – The Fitnessista

Hello friends. The weekend is here and we have officially entered summer. The kids had a great school year, but we’re all definitely ready for a break (especially from early mornings and homework). This weekend is Liv’s First Communion, the new Fit Team training comes out on Sunday and we will be spending a lot of time in the pool. I hope you have a nice and relaxing week ahead.

For now, it’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party. This is where I share some of my favorite things of the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your favorites too, so please shout out something you like in the comments section below.

Friday Faves:


We had some friends over to celebrate the end of school and it was a perfect evening.

Here is the menu.

– Artichoke dip and crackers

– A giant thing of fruit (jicama, mango, cucumber, pineapple) and chamomile brought by Ana

– Always a cheese board

(I tried making little rivers instead of piles this time and loved how it turned out)

– Steak with chimicuri sauce

– Caesar salad with homemade sourdough croutons (this is the dressing)

– Grilled salmon

– Sweet potato puree

– Sangria and margaritas

– and for dessert, chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting and the most amazing Persian love cakes from Agave Pantry

The kids swam for hours (our babysitter is a lifeguard and came to keep extra eyes on the pool), we caught up with some of our closest friends and it was a blast.

Health, fitness, + good food.
