friday favorites: the crack edition

This week went by really slowly. In a really fast way. You know what I'm saying?
Favorite Song
Live and Die by The Avett Brothers
I've been on a big Avett Brothers kick lately. By lately I mean for the past three to four years, of course. I used to listen to their I And Love And You album when I would go up to Atlanta to visit Freddie when we were first dating. What I'm getting at is that me and the Avett Bros are supa' tight. 

Favorite Food
Have you ever done crack? Yes, I'm talking about cocaine, obviously. I haven't done it so I'm not sure that my comparison is accurate, but this Whole30 compliant chicken salad is as addicting as what I imagine crack to be like.
Whole30 chicken salad
TRY IT OUT. Chicken crack salad + homemade mayo. I think it's the homemade mayo that does it.
We made it for lunches this week (with apples instead of grapes) and...it lasted for only one day of lunch. Plus snacking that day plus some dinner snacking that night. Good thing we're not gluttons or anything.

WAIT. We added in dill, too. DON'T forget the dill. 

Favorite Purchase
I had a Nordstrom gift card burning a hole in my wallet, and I like my wallet (come on, its a HOBO!) so I decided to take matters into my own hands and use the burning gift card. 

Zella leggings
Do we like these workout pants? Do we think they are too busy, or just the right amount of fun? I'm using the pronoun we because these are questions that I cannot answer by myself. Ah well, I guess we/I will find out soon when these are delivered to us/me.

Favorite Pilates Move
Pilates swimming
As a society we tend to live in the front of our body. Following? The computers, the phones, the texting, the reading--it's all done in front of us so we're all hunched and crunched forward. That's one of a million reasons it is so important to work on the back of our bodies, work in extension. This move is great for waking up the back of your body that's been napping since 2007 when the iPhone came out. 
Pro-tips: Use your back muscles (NOT your neck) to pull yourself up. Back of the neck stays long as if you were staring at the bottom of the pool. Hip bones and pubic bone are heavy on the floor, and abdominals are lifted up out of the floor. Put a thumb tack under your belly. That'll get you lifting out of your abs ;)
Favorite Lupe Picture
I hope you understand how difficult of a category this is for me. My camera roll contains a plethora of Lupe pictures, and somehow they all end up being THE CUTEST PICTURE EVER TAKEN. It's weird that 75 pictures can all hold that one title, but whatever. Who am I to argue? This week's favorite goes out to my favorite yawning, 'bout to eat your face off doggy.

Happy Friday!
Linking up with Karli and Amanda.

I need to try that chicken salad! Dill is def a necessity. Lupe is looking great, as always.

Lupe - you are sooo cute!!! Those leggings are fabulous, and now I want to try making my own mayo and that chicken salad!

Kayla MKOY said...

I want to cuddle Lupe right now! He's perfect. I love that gif of your Pilates move- you're a rock star! I might have to try that!! :) and yes I'm making that chicken salad crack thing this weekend. YUM!

I LOVE CHICKEN SALAD SO MUCH. I need to make this crack-like recipe ASAP.

Also yes, we love the workout pants. We think the pattern and colors and mesh are super fun. Plus Zella makes awesome leggings.

Also that picture of Lupe is so great. We have one of one of our dogs where her nose is all up in the camera and I laugh so hard every time I see it.

Oh my goodness that move is SO hard for me! I swear my thighs do not, nay-cannot, come off the ground....
