On hiatus

The time has come to make it official. My blog posting frequency has dwindled, and there are lots of other things consuming my time and energy these days. Like last summer, workouts are now in the early morning hours, and my time in the evening after work is limited by a long list of things to do before baby girl arrives. I'm zapped of creativity, and weekend activities have been less than inspiring. So a blogging break is long overdue! Be back soon...

Five for Friday

Here's what's caught my attention lately...

Just love them. They were the main flower in our wedding bouquet and always bring a smile to my face. We saw some GORGEOUS peony bushes at the Mohonk House a couple of weeks ago, and since then, I've been trying to figure out a time to get over to the gardening store and get some to plant in our backyard. 

Recovery from Life Exhaustion
Four practical suggestions that I need to do. Soon. 2 & 3 go together and would be tops on my list of priorities...if I could find the time! Life exhaustion happens for real. Especially when you're already suffering from insomnia. Crossing my fingers for good sleep this weekend.

Watermelon Caprese with Balsamic Glaze
I have been loving fresh watermelon this summer! This salad from Skinnytaste looks so festive and healthy for the 4th!

No really. Need. This bag is from Need Supply Co. Definitely coveting it as the perfect bucket bag.

After wearing ONLY Saucony running sneakers for the past eight years or so, I bought my first pair of Brooks. I was so disappointed in the fit and stiff sole of the new Saucony Rides and the quality of the sole of the Kivaras that I decided, why not give Brooks a try? I ordered the Brooks Launch 2 and the ever popular Ghosts from Zappos and much preferred the Launch. They're lightweight, have great cushioning and support, and come in some snazzy colors (although it looks like the ones I purchased in Kaleidoscope aqua are now out of stock). 

Happy 4th of July!
