FIVE ON FRIDAY


+Is there anything better than white in the summer? I think not. 

White shorts, white pants...gimme! I just want to wear it all the time, and apparently this morning I woke up feeling really patriotic with my red, white, and blue ensemble.

sandals // jeans // chambray top-old, but recommend this one or this one // anchor scarf is a gift from family // purse, sold out in red but other colors available here-including one on clearance!

+The best way to start a Friday morning...acai bowl deliciousness.


 +For months we've gone back and forth between buying a Vitamix or a Blendtec (I mean, hello these things AREN'T cheap!). At first, we were sold on the Vitamix until I saw that all my favorite smoothie places and gym uses the Blendtec, and highly recommend it. An employee at Bed, Bath, and Beyond was even raving about it and got a few other employees to join in her in telling us to do the Blendtec over the Vitamix.

Maybe this weekend she will finally come home with me...




+This week I got my my new Brooks running shoes in the mail and got to take them for some test runs!

 I swear I will never switch to a different running shoe brand because Brooks is just simply the best. These are no different, love them! Did I mention they are on major sale now, too?! You're welcome. ;)

{they come with blue laces but I bought these bright yellow ones for like $2 at a shoe store because I wanted to add some more color!}

+I posted this picture to my instagram the other night and a lot of you were asking for the recipe. I've actually been making this black bean and spinach enchilada recipe since last winter and it's from the awesome Krysta's blog! (I turn to her blog for so many healthy recipes!) 



Happy Friday, everyone! 

What are you weekend plans?

 Tomorrow, I'm actually going with a girlfriend to our big farmers market for the first time this summer (one of my favorite things to do!), and I will probably be spending a lot of time at the pool. See you all on Monday! :)

  12. Thank you so much for the enchilada link, those look amazing! I have a nutri-bullet I use to make my smoothies and I think it works wonderfully! I would love a vita-mix or blendtec but since I only use it for smoothies I am not willing to splurge at the moment. Have a great weekend!

  15. I have been looking for good white jeans all season and I can't find any that aren't either super tight or kinda see-thru. I'm adding that recipe to my meal plan very soon!

  18. Acai bowls are my one of favorites. I love to go to my local juice shop and get one after hiking. I'm a big fan of the Vitamix!

  19. Would you recommend Brooks for cross-training as well? or do you think they're best left to running? (P.S. I just love your outfit!)

  20. Do you make your own acai bowls or do you buy them somewhere? Looking for a recipe/where to find the ingredients if you have one :)

    PS those enchiladas look amazing.
