I’m going to share a few Friday faves before I get to packing, baking, grocery shopping and nail painting.
A Puppy Play Date
Two girls I know from the studio also have golden puppies from the same breeder as Zoey. Theirs are both younger than Zoey and under a year old. We’ve been talking about getting the pups together to play forever and we finally made it happen last night. Look at this little golden retriever meeting they were having.
Sullie also came along (she’s in the middle). I almost didn’t bring her but at the last minute I couldn’t stand to leave her behind.
She was in good company because one of the girls has a 9 year old that she also decided to bring. We had 5 goldens!
We had lot of this going on.
This is Paul Newman. Funny story…anytime I would pat one of the puppies, Sullie would come running over to me from wherever she was in the yard to stake her claim. “That’s my mommy.” She was not sharing! 🙂 (She was probably terrified I was going to bring another one home! Ha!)
Get ready for more golden madness. We are dog sitting a friend’s golden for two weeks starting this weekend. (We totally volunteered for this!)
A student brought us fresh figs from her tree this morning. I am so excited it’s fig season!
I recently received a selection of Perky Jerky to sample. I can’t say that jerky is a top of mind snack for me but I really liked the Perky Jerky. It’s low in calories and fat and a nice source of protein. It also has no nitrates, preservatives or MSG and it’s gluten-free.
What I liked best about it was the texture and the different flavors. They make Perky Jerky by marinating cuts of meat overnight. The resulting texture is really tender and not tough like traditional jerky at all.
Coconut-Lemongrass Chicken Noodle Bowls
These were on last week’s meal plan and we really liked them. Sharing again because you should add them to your meal plan soon! Most of the work is done by the slow cooker which is an added bonus!
Honeydrop Cold-Pressed Lemonade
Lemonade and summer go hand in hand. Honeydrop beverages are sweetened with one tablespoon of pure, unrefined honey and have no added sweeteners. I liked all three flavors that I tried and I also love that Honeydrop donates 1% of proceeds to local beekeepers that are active in their communities.
My new Instagram account!
I started a separate Instagram account for my yoga a couple of months ago and I’m having so much fun sharing flows and things I teach in class. You can follow along by searching @poweryogaflow or click this link. My normal account (@jdecurtins) will remain focused on more lifestyle kind of things like food, fitness and the girls.
