Friday Favorites

Hello, Happy Friday! I hope your Friday is off to a fantastic start!

Since it’s a holiday weekend I thought I would write a fun post about the things I’m loving lately.

Bachelorette Weekend in Lake Geneva

Bachelorette Weekend

My bridesmaids are the best! Last weekend I had my bachelorette weekend in Lake Geneva. Everything about the weekend was perfect. We had a great mix of girls, a few who haven’t seen each other in years, but instantly felt like nothing had changed and we were back in high school again. Saturday started at the pool, we were then pampered at the nail salon, ate downtown Lake Geneva and danced the night away. We were all careful not to drink too much because we had a full day of boating on Sunday. It was nice to get some R&R in before all the wedding craziness begins.

Bridesmaid Gifts

Bridesmaid Gifts

I ordered these totes for my bridesmaids months ago with the plan to give them to the girls at the rehearsal dinner. I realized I had bought too many gifts so I decided to spread them out and turn the totes into Bachelorette survival weekend bags.

New Favorite Yogurt

Chobani Greek Yogurt

I was lucky enough to receive a box of samples from Chobani. I usually eat Dannon’s plain yogurt so this was a nice change. Chobani Greek Yogurt is richer, higher in protein, all-natural and made with hormone-free milk. I am a big fan of the Orange & Vanilla Blend. It’s got just the right balance of sweetness and creaminess and I love that it has 13g of protein!

New Favorite Bar

Picky Bars

Have you guys heard of Picky Bars? Well, I eat a lot of bars and these are awesome! I saw people talking about them on twitter a couple of weeks ago and finally bought a few at Fleet Feet Sports grand opening on Monday.

Picky Bars is a company that was started by Lauren Fleshman who is two-time USA Champion for the 5k and five time NCAA Champion. Lauren, her husband and Stephanie Rothstien wanted to make something that was athletically balanced with a delicious taste that could help fuel their training.

Lauren’s Mega Nuts is my favorite flavor. I love how filling these bars are, but they don’t feel as dense as some of the other bars on the market. Oh yeah, and they taste amazing!

About Sara


  1. I wish people gave me gatorade and advil! good for hangovers and rough runs!

    I’m loving how my little girl is growing up from a confusing toddler to one that communicates easier and displays so many more emotions!

    • Haha, the gatorade and advil was perfect. How old is your daughter? My niece is almost 10 months and I love watching her grow and change.

  2. I love the positive life quote!
    I’m originally from Wisconsin so Lake Geneva was a regular visit growing up! Looks like a great time!

  3. So glad you had a good time!!

  4. I’ve tried samples of Picky Bars before, and they were amazing! I think it’s better for me not to buy them, because I probably would go through an entire box in a few days ; )
