Five Things Friday

1. It’s officially one week until the Healthy Living Summit

I’m really looking forward to finally meet some of my favorite bloggers and discover many new ones, attend informative sessions on photography & networking, and spend time with so many like-minded people. HLS keeps adding new events and awesome sponsors, like Reebok for example, who will be hosting a Crossfit workout for us! I’ve been to a couple blogger meetups before but never a conference. It’ll be nice to not feel uncomfortable whipping a camera out at a meal and to discuss WordPress and social media tips with people without their eyes glossing over!

2. Football is back! 

Sure, it’s only preseason right now, but regular season starts in less than a month!

3. I recently discovered something I’d probablyyyyy be better off not knowing about:

Umm, yeah. It’s freakin’ delicious. I had it in my greek yogurt this morning and it took things to another level.

4. I’m ridiculously excited to have dinner & drinks with this girl tomorrow night!

Paula was one of the first running blogs I followed after starting mine in 2010. We {unknowingly} kicked off our running addiction at the same race! And then there was that time I was at Tu Tu Tango in Orlando and she insisted I order the chocolate calzone.

AND my trip to Florida was made. It would only be right that I take her to an equally amazing restaurant while she’s in here in Austin. I have my work cut out for me but think I can make it happen. I mean, it IS Austin after all 🙂

5. And another thing for tomorrow. 12 miles. Twelve glorious hot miles. The last time I ran that far was about three months ago, so tomorrow should be FUN!

Not bad. It definitely could be worse.

What are you excited about today? Any big plans for the weekend?

  6. She did not steer you wrong on the chocolate calzone. It’s the most magical calzone in all of the land. <3

  7. those packets are PERFECT! just enough to indulge, but not over indulge! that’s the only way i can buy my PB!

  8. I can’t wait to read all about HLS! I really wish I could get away from work to go to a blogging conference!

    Also, where is that place in Orlando??? That deliciousness NEEDS to be consumed by me on my next trip!!!

    • It’s right on I-Drive, just down the street from Howl at the Moon. Highly recommend the Cajun Chicken Egg Rolls, red sangria, and the calzone – obviously.

  9. I love those nut butter packets…instant portion control! 🙂
