Five on Friday {Relaxation & Girlfriend time}

Happy Friday everyone! Wow, this week flew by. It makes me so sad... why does summer go so fast?? Anyways, enough complaining, I've had a great week! Mark is out of town, which stinks but while he is gone I always try and fill my time with seeing my girlfriends. I've done something with friends every day this week, which has been so fun! I'm attending a wedding this weekend and then heading home for Father's Day. Should be fun!

One- Better Buzz Coffee

I LOVE Better Buzz coffee (& their acai bowls) and I love it even more with a good friend. I was able to have dinner with Emily on Sunday night and then we met for coffee Monday morning. What a great start to my week! 

Two- Orange Theory Fitness

I'm back at it with Orange Theory and WOW it's kicked my butt this week. It feels good to have hard workouts again though. I've gone 3x this week, I'm going hiking today, and then I'll go to OTF tomorrow morning too. Woot, woot! I'm trying to workout as much as I can before I head to Vegas to see my family for Father's day. 

If you've never been to an OTF, you should definitely try it. The workouts are a mixture of cardio and strength. Each workout is different (which I love) and you rotate between blocks. Sometimes the blocks are split into two groups- treadmills, and floor (strength) and other times three groups- treadmills, water rowers, and floor. You wear a heart rate monitor that tracks your progress throughout the class. It's a good way to gage whether you are working to your full potential so you can achieve "after burn." This is basically where you are still burning calories after your done with your workout. 

I love all the coaches and they have studios all over. Check it out if you have one near you!

Three- Beachy Reads

I posted my list of Beachy Reads last week. If you haven't checked it out, then click here to go right to it. I am currently reading One True Loves and I'm obsessed. I powered through about half of it while I was at the beach yesterday and it's super good. I have to admit it's kinda sad so far... I'm not spoiling anything for you, it tells you right in the beginning :) Don't worry! Anyways, I can't give a 100% stamp of my approval yet but so far I really like it. I also bought Summerland by Elin Hilderbrand the other day. It was on sale for $7.00, I had to get it!

Four- Mexican Vacation Here We Come

We booked our summer vacation to an all-inclusive resort in Cancun and I am SOOOO excited. My parents are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year and so we are coming along for the fun. My parents are super fun to hang out with so I know we will have a great time. We've been planning this for a little while now but we finally paid for it this week. Jumping for joy over here!! 

Five- #RFGoNaked (from the neck up haha)

Rodan+ Fields has partnered with buildOn- a non-profit organization that provides students with positive and safe after-school experiences, in encouraging environments. All you have to do is post a make-up free selfie on July 8th  and hashtag it with #RFGoNaked and Rodan+Fields Prescription for Change Foundation will donate $5 to buildOn. So awesome right?? I remember seeing a bunch of people doing this last year and I'm excited to participate this year. I hope you will join in for the fun and raise some money for a great cause!
