Seriously Fabulous Favorites

I'm so glad I discovered Amanda and her Friday Favorites link up. It just really ends your work week on a happy note, thinking about all the things you loved about the week! Even if you feel like you've had a crummy few days, I bet you can think of some good things to post about link-up :) Join us!

Favorite Moment: Even though I can't be there, my niece's adoption is being 110% finalized in court today. It's the final signing of papers and she gets to finally have the same last name as my sister and brother-in-law. I could cry just thinking about it! Our family is so happy!

Favorite Meal: Duh, my amazing Mexican casserole I whipped up. If it's not on your menu sometime soon you're missing out, I'm serious. I'll probably be making it weekly now.

Favorite Workout: I got 2 really great runs in this week in addition to hitting the weights. I pushed myself and it felt great. Jared and I have been trying to decide what race we want to sign up for next. We're looking at some 5 or 10k's this fall. And to all you hard-core runners... yes, I'm CONSIDERING another half-marathon. We'll see ;)

Favorite Funny: Marcie sent me this and said it made her think of me. One- she's amazing and I'm glad tacos make her think of me. And two- I wish the child that wrote this was mine!

Favorite Blog Design: I just re-did my sister-in-law's blog and I'm like... in love with it! Seriously.

Favorite Work-Related Thing: I had a really good meeting with my boss this week as well as a meeting with some important people from corporate; it made me feel reenergized about my role there and it couldn't have come at a more perfect time.

Favorite Sports Thing: Duh- training camp has officially kicked off and that means 'training camp casual' is our dress code for a few weeks which I will gladly take. Polos and khaki shorts? Yes, please. ****PS! Hoping to do a one-time Football Friday link-up soon, any interest?? :)

Favorite Weekend Plan: Checking something off my 30 before 30 list... but you'll have to wait to find out what! ;)

Favorite Person: Duh! This guy :) We've had a really busy week with some late nights so I'm looking forward to extra time with him tomorrow and Sunday! Rumor has it he's cooking up some steaks for us. I'm hungry already!

  17. Haven't you learned that "considering" a half marathon might as well be "signed up for a half marathon"?! Don't fight it, Erin, you're one of us now! ;)

  24. Congrats to your family! I was an adoption social worker for 5 years and it was amazing to be a part of making families. Adoption is such a special way to build a family and what a great day for your sister that things are finally final.

  25. Congratulations on your officially growing family! My husband informed me that today was the last Sunday without football until February so I think he's excited! I won't really get excited til the regular season starts, though, and then only if my team looks better than last year...
