5 things for Friday!

Happy Friday!

 Here's a few things from my week...

Something new I tried: 
A friend of mine sent me a sample of the White Chocolate Peppermint Advocare shake. It is unbelievably good. I will even say it is the best 'at home' shake I've ever had. And I've tried them all! I did buy a box during Cyber Monday, but when they aren't on sale, the price is absolutely ridiculous. But they are deelish!
 2. Something I won:
I was so excited to get an email from Michael, the race director at Louisville Sports Commission. They are doing 12 days of Christmas giveaways, and I was day 1! I won a free entry to a trail run (that I wasn't able to do, because it was the very next day!), a tech shirt and a 4 pack of red bull, which my stepson was very happy to take off my hands.
3. Somewhere I went: 
As you guys know, I'm the nanny for a 6 month old and 4 year old sisters. Yesterday I only had the 4 year old, so we spent the day at the Science Center. That was the neatest place!
 This girl (who I've babysat since she was 3 months old) is the sweetest ever. Just out of the blue, as we were on our way, she said "I love you, Ms Katie. You're the best babysitter in the world." She makes it all worth it.
 4. Something I bought:
Early Christmas present! For the past year I've had the Jawbone UP24, and I just upgraded to the Jawbone UP2. This is sleeker, not as bulky, and it automatically tracks your sleep pattern, without having to push any buttons. I love seeing my steps, and always trying to get more too. This was another Cyber Monday buy, so I got it for $30 off!
5. Somewhere I ran:  
The treadmill.  It's been a long time since I've ran on it. It was good to be back, I love it!
8 miles so far this week. Tomorrow I'll be running a local 5k with my sweet 11 year old nephew and 8 year old niece, and then going out for a 10 miler on my own.

Have a fabulous weekend, my friends!

Do you wear a Jawbone, Fitbit, or other activity tracing device?


  1. That Jawbone is so super CUTE!!!!!
    I love the Science Center. Ricky & I like to go ourselves. Did you know its discounted after like 5pm on Friday or Saturday night - DATE NIGHT :)
    I saw you won & I was excited for you.

  2. I think I'm gonna have to try to get one of those step trackers...might motivate me to move a bit more when I'm just at home:) That one looks nice!

    1. Yes, I love it! I like that this one is thinner and a little classier. :)

  3. We have a local Sci Center with the same hats how cute! Love your five things!

  4. I'm a Fitbit-fanatic -- my MIL gave me a Flex last year for Christmas and I've worn it religiously ever since. I haven't been to the Lou. Science Center in a few years -- that gave me an idea on something to do over Christmas break with the kids. :)

    1. That's exactly how I am! I wear it 24/7.
      It would be a great place to take the kiddos over break!

  5. That is a really cute, sleek looking tracker. Sounds like you had a great week! Enjoy your race this weekend!

  6. Aww what a cutie you baby sit. I love how she calls you Miss Katie. So sweet! I am addicted to my fitbit well until it broke. I need to look into getting a better one!

    1. She really is precious. Maybe you'll get a new one for Christmas! :)
