Friday Faves

Spring is in full swing, and thank goodness. Today’s Friday Faves will be influenced by all things spring & colorful 🙂

Fresh Tulips, don’t these just scream spring? Love it.

Warmer (though a bit rainy) weather, and a fantastic forecast for the weekend!

After spending Easter at my family’s house at the cape I have to share probably my favorite fav, my mom’s new kitchen! Our house has been in our family for 50 years and the kitchen hasn’t really been updated since the 60’s or 70’s. Well, my mom has taken on the project trying to do it cost effectively and reflective of Cape Cod. Unfortunately the counter top hasn’t been installed yet, but the cabinets look great!

And of course our beach…this is my #1 happy place in the world.

And it wouldn’t be Friday April 29th without The Royal Wedding! Here are some pictures of my office decorated for Wills & Kate’s Nuptials…Did you wake up at 6am to watch coverage like I did??

and then…

And of course it’s time for some royal wedding morning cocktails!

Lastly, I get to run 12 miles in Newton tomorrow morning. Bring it on hills!

Noel, one of my best friends from college & fellow Marathon addict comes to Boston exactly ONE week from today!!

My best friend from high school will be in town for a family party & I get to see her Friday night! In order to maximize our time together I did my long run a little early, Thursday night

"She's From Boston"

Racing!

Doyle’s Five Mile Road race in Jamaica Plain, form what I’ve heard this race is a really fun time, and I am looking forward to fresh legs and possibly a 5 miler PR and enjoy the beautiful “emerald necklace” area of Boston.

I’m officially going to my 5 Year College Reunion. I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since I graduated, it honestly feels like yesterday! I’m so excited for good friends, good memories, cheap bars & BAGPIPES.

DetermiNation Pub Runs, I forgot my camera this week, but we had a great time with a gorgeous sunset on the Charles River last night.

I’ve seen Friday Faves floating around now for awhile, so I figured I would partake in the fun

The most exciting thing about today is that it’s opening day for the Boston Red Sox!!!

The Boston Marathon is just 17 days away! That means that I am just over two weeks away from seeing one of my best friends, Noel!

April Fools Jokes

Pretzel Crisps. I tried these for the first time at the Ibex “Coaching your Inner Athlete” Event on Tuesday, and WOW, I am obsessed! Skinny pretzels? Sign me up.

A wide open calendar this weekend. I’m looking forward to a great long run, a chance to catch up with friends and possibly checking out a new spot around the corner from my apartment
