Things I’m Loving Lately 14

Happy Monday friends!  How was your weekend?

I got to go out to dinner Friday night.  It seems like it has been ages since I had sushi.


On Saturday I woke up and my back/ neck pain came back with a vengeance.  I ended up spending the rest of the weekend trying to feel better, which was kind of a bummer.  Luckily the hubs made me some pancakes to cheer me up.  He goes all out with his breakfasts!


I love pancakes!  With that, let’s dive right in!  Here are some other Things I’m Loving Lately!


Things I’m Loving Lately 14

Getting a DEAL on Shoes!

I’ve had my eye on these adorable DSW BCBG Jelly shoes with bows all summer.  They went on a triple sale AND the hubs gave me his $10 birthday coupon so I got them for $11.64! Score!


It’s been awhile since I shopped for sport and I’m not going to lie… it felt good.

So You Think You Can Dance

I’ve finally moved on from Dancing with the Stars to So You Think You Can Dance!


This show makes me long for my ballerina days.  I wish I could still soar through the air like those dances do.  I’m lucky to make it a foot off the ground these day and then I pray I land without spraining anything.  How times change!

White Chocolate Raspberry Yogurt

This little yogurt cup is such a treat!


It is creamy white chocolate yogurt with raspberry swills.  The flip cup has little chocolate and raspberry candies.  It is definitely too sugary to be a breakfast or meal yogurt, but it is quite a divine special treat.  I love it!

Intelliskin Sports Bra

The kind folks at Intelliskin sent me one of their posture aligning sports bras to try!  Intelliskin products have compression abilities and mimic taping on your back to promote proper posture.  It’s a really cool company and the bra really makes you stand up straighter.  I have the tendency to get lazy and slouch, so I loving the built in correction this piece has!   I highly recommend checking them out HERE.


Have you guys seen the beautiful images of Pluto?

This image of Pluto was captured by New Horizons on Monday, July 13, about 16 hours before the moment of closest approach. The spacecraft was 476,000 miles from Pluto's surface.

I’m still a little confused on whether Pluto is or is not a planet right now… but it sure looks like a planet to me!  Can you believe it took the New Horizons space craft nine years to reach Pluto to take the pictures?  Growing up just an hour from Kennedy Space Center, I’ve always been fascinated by the space program and the planets.

In my mind though there will always be nine planets… My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas!  But I digress…

Raw Food

I had to make a quick trip to Charlotte last week and went to lunch with my Brother’s girlfriend Erica. We tried the local raw restaurant, Luna’s Living Kitchen and it was amazing!  We shared two dishes, but this vegan raw lasagna really shined.


I still can’t believe the flavor of the cashew “cheese” and how it all seemed cooked.  I wouldn’t want to eat raw food all the time (I really really really love bread…,) but I could eat this anytime!

    Right now I need Sushi and pancakes. Maybe use a pancake as a warm compress for your neck? And then eat it, obv.

      Me too! Perfect for the anti-oven summer movement 🙂 The sports bra is pretty cool. They have all kinds of pieces like shirts and tanks too.

  25. I sure hope your neck feels better! Maybe that posture-improving bra will help?
