Happy Friday, friends!
You know what was perfect about this week? Being totally imperfect.
I ate breakfast for lunch. Not because it was Instagram-able (even though I did) but because it was easier.
I didn’t obsess over all the details, but simply forged through instead.
I got over the fact that my form isn’t perfectly yoga-esque (yet!), but that I’m still there, sweating it out.
Because it’s more important to be present, than to be perfect.
My challenge to you this week is to take a minute and think of one thing you did this week that may not have been perfect, but gosh dangit! You finished it.
Then, pat yourself on the back. And move on.
And after you’ve done that, dig into this week’s list of Friday Faves!
Whoa! I wondered how in the heck they made these! Who wants to go to Brooklyn with me?
This week I had so many people e-mail to ask me where the recipe was for the main photo in last week’s Friday Faves. I wasn’t planning on posting it but will soon, so stay tuned!
Quiche with a Triscuit crust? Genius!
I love this salad but I love the message of the post even more.
Dig into these! Canadians sure do know how to celebrate the Super Bowl!
I guess it’s time to give up the bubbles. It was refreshing while it lasted.
This is hysterical! And what a sweet way to watch him grow!
Call me nostalgic but I LOVED THIS. Did you see it?

This IG account…This is just the best way to celebrate an Insta-Valentines-Day!
Awwwww. This another adorable account on Instagram.
Totally in awe of this girl’s Instagram, too! What talent!
So, after 11 years of hanging on to Smudge’s first year of baby clothes, I gave away 9 CONTAINERS FULL OF BABY CLOTHES this week (yes! just from her first year!!) along with a bunch of products I’ve saved from photo shoots I swear I was going to sell online, and shredding 8 boxes of old financial statements. Now, I have empty closets thanks to being motivated to finally take action after reading this! I feel so much lighter!
If you don’t feel like hauling all your crap to a donation center, here’s how to schedule a pick-up no matter where you live.

Someone told me Ikea is selling a stand up desk that is motorized but I can’t find it! Anyone have a lead?
I want it to go with my new office chair—when I’m not sitting on it.
I used to be SO GOOD at this. And now I’m a slouch. Time to focus and change!
