HEY PARTY PEOPLE! Happy Friday!!!
I’m linking up with Clare again today for Five Things Friday! I’m feeling super pumped about life this morning so I’m excited to share some of this weeks events with y’all. Especially since this week seemed to have gotten away from me so quickly!
1. I’m a believer… in oly shoes
I was super skeptical at first but decided to give them a shot after having a 40% off coupon and scoring them for under $100 bucks. So many people SWEAR by them ( my coaches, Claire, Katelyn) so I dove in.
The verdict? HOLY BAJEESUS they are awesome!! They help so much keeping my stabilized and shifting the weight into my heels (something that I struggle with!).
This leads me to….
2. I PR’ed my front squat!!
Last night at the gym I decided to mess around on front squat and ended up pulling out a 10 pound PR! 135#!! Guess what? #135 was CAKE and I’m pretty positive that I could do more. But alas, I ran out of time. #150 front squat I’m comin’ for you!!!
3. Broiled Grapefruit
If you want to try it, cut a grapefruit in half and put a tiny bit of brown sugar on the meat of each half. Pop into the oven + broil on high for 3-5 minutes, or until the sugar gets caramelized and the skin starts to brown (JUST a bit!). So juuiiiccaaayy and warm.
4. Blog Makeover
That’s right! Barefoot Colorado is getting a redesign! I’ve been working with Alex (whom I met at HLS 13′!) on a new look for the blog. It should hopefully be live within the next week or so!
What do ya think? I love it!
5. One of my best friends is getting married!
I’ve known Hannah since we were young kids as our families have always been super close. Although we are both from Colorado, our families both have lake houses at Lake McConaughy in Nebraska! I’ve spent countless days and nights at the lake with her goofing off and getting into all sorts of shenanigans. When she asked me to be in her wedding, I was all smiles!
Want to know something funny? Her fiance’s family also has a house at the lake, which is where they met. It only makes sense that the wedding will be held at the lake — cowboy boots are obviously required to attend.
Did I mention they have the cutest two year old on the planet? I just love him! He’s obsessed with tractors, trucks, John Deere and babies. He’s so good with little Summer!
Have a great weekend!
