This weekend I’ll be donning my bikini for the very first time all summer (I know) as Ben and I are heading to the Lake of the Ozarks for a few days of fun in the sun with friends!
I feel like I’m the only person in the Midwest who has yet to see the popular summer spot in central Missouri, and I’m beyond pumped. Hopefully we’ll get to swing by the legendary Party Cove, which one travel writer from the NY Times dubbed “the oldest established permanent floating bacchanal in the country.” Bahaha!
(Ok after a quick Google image search of party cove I am slightly rethinking that request…)
Anyways we’ve felt trapped indoors for a good part of the summer because of the heat, so a real “summery” experience is just what Ben and I need. Here goes nothin’!
I hope you’ve got some fun plans too, including spending some time outdoors (should be a blissful weekend around here!) but in the meantime, please enjoy my favorite finds from the web and beyond in this week’s Friday Favorites!
Favorite fitness: Fitnessista’s Rainy Day Workout . I trucked through this workout yesterday and holy buckets, it is killer! The bicep curl countdown was pure torture, but as they say – no pain, no gain!
Favorite sip: Peach Margaritas . I had the best. peach. ever. last weekend and have been obsessing over everything peach ever since. These margs sound perfect.
Favorite tip: Coaster Tray . Although there’s only two of us, Ben is constantly putting his cup on the counter and I’m constantly putting it in the dishwasher – then we’re both irritated at each other. Love this blogger’s solution to our situation!
Favorite dish: Lime & Coconut Chicken . Ohhh this sounds so exotic and delish. Like something from a tropical island vacay.
Favorite craft: Custom Wrapping Paper . Ok this might not be as cool as I’m thinking it is in my head – but ironing two pieces of wax paper together with tissue paper cutouts in the middle to create custom wrapping paper is freaking awesome, right?
Favorite save: Save 15% off all Green Mountain Coffee® flavored coffees available in K-Cup® packs with code YUMMY-8131 until September 12 on GreenMountainCoffee.com. I have been loving down the Wild Blueberry flavor as of late! (Full disclosure, I am a Green Mountain K-Cup Ambassador!)
