[we finally got snow]
Heading into a long weekend and looking for something to do here in Iowa? Be sure to check out the Science Center of Iowa on Monday for their annual free day.
On a recent trip to Target I noticed they already had their swimwear out in full force! I know, I know, it’s hard to get excited when there is snow on the ground. While I was casually browsing I noticed that they had a new line, Kona Sol, and it looked amazing in person. Fast-forward to later that night at home when proceeded to order two black suits (this and this) online!
With an impending winter storm hitting near us this weekend, I’m looking forward to spending some time at home with a roaring fire and a good bottle (or two) of wine. Maybe I’ll even get some Marie Kondo-esqe organizing done?
There is nothing like starting off the new year with a few fitness goals and some new gear. I try to get to the gym pretty regularly (using the DMU gym is such a great benefit!), but towards the end of last year between work and home life – my workouts took a backseat.
Over the weekend, I tried out the new CycleBar Jordan Creek and upon getting clipped in for the ride I was transported to a night club in Ibiza, minus the fog and foam. I loved the dark classroom and upbeat music. It made the workout, although tough, feel exciting and manageable. If you are looking for something new, you should definitely check them out. Next time I get back in the saddle, I will definitely be trying out one of their themed classes: think Taylor Swift or 80s classics!
But truly, there is nothing like kicking off the new year (and a new fitness routine) with some updated gear. Well, I’ve got you covered!

[my two sidekicks]
I can’t wait to share details and photos from our amazing trip over the holidays, but for now, I’ll ease in with a little Friday faves post.
Over the holidays it’s easy to get used to that pajamas ’til noon, lack of shower kind of life. Thank goodness I found this gem to revive my day-three hair.
The boys got all sorts of toys and presents over the holidays, but these Magic Tracks are quickly becoming a fave in our house.
I recently got to take the boys to our local Art Center and rediscovered how much I love it. We participated in Books+Blankets and had a blast. Looking for something to do during the cold winter months? Be sure to check out their upcoming family events.
From my tractor-lovin’ family to yours, Happy Holidays.
