Hi there!  Hope you had a great weekend.  I just wanted to stop by today and share a few of the weekend highlights and a few things I’m currently loving around the web.  I’m taking the rest of the week off from the blog to spend time with my family that’s visiting.  We have some fun plans so be sure to follow along on Instagram and I’ll be back next week sharing all the highlights.

I spent the majority of Saturday cleaning and prepping the house for my families arrival.  My little sister gets in from LA today and my parents tomorrow.  Before heading to the grocery store for all the Thanksgiving menu items Tom and I had a Panera lunch date.  I forgot how good the Chicken Apple Salad was.

Saturday night we watched football and I made pork sandwiches and another batch of these apple cider spiced donuts, so good!

Sunday I found myself cleaning again and getting things ready for the two day work week.  Then took a break to head to CycleBar for a free anniversary ride.  This is my second visit to this studio and I LOVE IT, I’ll have a full class review coming to you next week.

And after we just had to get donuts from the Sugar Shack around the corner 🙂

Sugar Shack Donuts

Sunday afternoon when I got home I desperately needed some self care.  I took some time to read, currently enjoying Big Little Lies.   And catch up on This Is Us, even though I’m still a few episodes behind.  We ended the weekend with TV, warm chili, and donuts for dessert.

Around the Web:

In case you missed it last week I shared all my favorite Thanksgiving Recipes and a What I Ate Wednesday.

How cute is this apron.  

This Should I Eat the Cookie Flowchart, Genius!

Can’t wait to try this HITT workout.

I’m also cooking dinner for my family the week along with Thanksgiving Dinner.  I am excited to try this Cranberry Orange Chicken.  Another of my favorite group dinner recipes is this Walnut Crusted Chicken.

    Love Panera! That apple chicken salad is so good.
    How are you liking Big Little Lies? Have you read the book?

      I’m reading the book, I haven’t watched the show. I figured I would after I finish the book, really like it so far, but I feel like it’s one of those books where I forget info and will want to go back and re read some things. Have a great week Erinn. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I am loving the CycleBar classes too. They’re such a great workout and I’d be even more motivated if I had a sugar shack around the car. Oh well, I guess I can settle for mimosas. 🙂

    Have fun with the family and hosting. Enjoy!!

      I love when a spin class feels like a great workout but it’s also super fun, CycleBar definitely delivers with that! Have a Happy Thanksgiving Meghan!

    We recently explored spin around this time last year and LOVED it! It’s honestly one of the best workouts I’ve ever done. But then the studio closed two months later, and Boulder has yet to open another one (which is surprising!).
    Those donuts look SO yummy!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!

    Big Little Lies was such a great series – and the soundtrack is awesome. I need to go back and read the book now.

    Hope you had a good Thanksgiving!
