Ice Skating + Friday Favorites #11

  Dec 23, 2016  |  #Favorites

Woop woop, happy Friday ya’ll! Have you entered my free giveaway for Epsom Salts yet? Last day!

We drove to Pennsylvania last night to spend the holidays with Ed’s family, and I’m all cozied up having some coffee this morning and enjoying the downtime. Thought you’d enjoy a glimpse of our copilot.

I’m so glad I’m starting to feel more like myself this week, after being out of commission last week.

Let’s get to some fun favorites from the week!

Ice Skating!

It’s been a while since I’ve ice skated and for our date night this month, I really wanted to go. We had a blast and I picked it back up pretty easily. It really is so much fun! Plus they were playing Christmas music, so it made me really feel like Christmas is only a few days away.

Pub Subs

This is actually from last week but worthy of a remention. Can you believe I hadn’t tried a pubsub before? Well this first time customer will become a repeat customer.

Panera’s Hot Chocolate

Who knew their hot chocolate was this epic? We went to Panera for lunch while Tater got her first grooming on (see picture below). I ordered soup and once I read how they could power up the hot chocolate, I knew I had to order one. You guys – chocolate chip marshmallows and chocolate drizzle. So good!

Client Appreciation

I’m extra appreciative of my clients this month. While December has been one where some people have just “given up” and put their New Year’s goals on hold, I have so much respect for the ones who have continued to meet with me consistently to form their holiday plan and start discussing goals for the New Year. I also received gifts from many clients this week and it just warms my heart so much. I feel so fortunate to work with such special, kind hearted people.

Good Reads

The nutrient you didn’t know you were missing <– Really interesting read about choline! If you don’t know by now, so many health benefits to eating the egg yolks!

What I Learned from reading 52 books this year <– So fascinating. Someday, I would like to make this resolution!

Why Runners hit the wall and what to do about it <– I like the “If, then” techniques. I will also be trying the “attention narrowing” in my next race.


Tell me your highs from the week! 

Any fun memories from ice skating?

  1. Have fun in PA!! Are you anywhere close to Philadelphia? Hope you have a great Christmas!
    Such cute pictures of Tater–was he good in the car? I heard about Paneras hot chocolate–i had no idea it was so fancy!!

  2. Oh tater. All decked out for Christmas and looking gorgeous. So glad you got out ice skating! There isn’t really a more picturesque winter date is there? Merry Christmas, Sarah, to you and Ed and your entire family. Enjoy the relaxation!!

  3. I haven’t gone ice skating in a long time–it sounds like such fun! And yes, I would agree with your assessment: that hot chocolate does indeed look super-epic. (52 books in a year sounds amazing, too!) Hope you have a very merry Christmas, Sarah!
