Friday Favorites

Hope you all had a fabulous Cinco de Mayo and celebrated with a margarita in hand like me Winking smile


I’m not gonna lie my margarita didn’t exactly look like this. It was in a plastic cup, but oh well, it was still awesome hanging out with the girls at On The Border. The wait was a bit longer than expected….Two hours turned into three, and by 9:30pm we decided to eat somewhere else. It was ridiculous and I was starving.

Either way it was nice to see my friends and spend time with them.

So on to my Friday Favorites! Smile

1. Homemade cookies!

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, I’m not a baker. I’ve never baked anything. These were the first cookies I’ve made. Click here for the recipe.

They came out to around 120 calories a cookie, not too shabby I think.Only 3 left

2. LMFAO’s new song Party Rock Anthem,5,0,0

Perfect song to get low

3. My new Express romper!

I don’t usually order clothes online since it might not fit me but this one fits like a glove SmileΒ 

4. Assisted Pull Ups

Just until I can do real ones!! I really feel my upper body giving it all it’s got.

5. My baking experiment…Cereal muffins…

They aren’t perfected yet. It needs to be tweaked a bit, but I’m getting thereΒ Smile
I’m not a simple girl, I need to combine things

Hope your day isn’t as gloomy as mine, Miami is a raining mess today!

  • What did you do Cinco de Mayo?

  • 8. Cara @ ChicMeetsHealthy  |  05/06/2011 at 1:14 pm

    I actually really like the assisted pull up machine. I like doing dips on it too!

  • 9. fitandfabinfrance  |  05/06/2011 at 1:15 pm

    I am English living in France so have never heard of ‘Cinco de Mayo’ and after googling it I am not surprised it is not highlighted over here as it is a celebration of a Mexican victory over France!!

    Think I will celebrate with a Sangria!

    P.s LOVE the cute little playsuit!

  • 10. applesnoats  |  05/06/2011 at 1:16 pm

    same with jacksonville:(

  • 17. beyondbananas  |  05/06/2011 at 2:49 pm

    Happy Friday … nothing festive for cinco de mayo here. I agree with you about ordering clothes online though.. a few times I’ve done it and had to return.. SO annoying!

  • 18. (what runs) Lori  |  05/06/2011 at 2:57 pm

    I would have rather done your things… I rented a u-haul and moved into a new place! hard work but almost done. πŸ™‚

    • 19. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:03 pm

      How super exciting!!! πŸ™‚

  • 20. Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries  |  05/06/2011 at 3:13 pm

    A three hour wait?! Oh HELL no! I would have been one hangry bitch by that point haha
    PS – We’re wearing the same color nail polish! πŸ™‚

    • 21. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:04 pm

      I was starvinggggg

  • 22. Stefanie @TheNewHealthy  |  05/06/2011 at 3:34 pm

  • 23. Shanna, like Banana  |  05/06/2011 at 4:12 pm

    Those cookies turned out great especially for your first foray into baking!

    We stayed in last night and had chips/salsa and I made quesadillas πŸ™‚

    • 24. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:06 pm

      Love chips and salsa!

  • 25. movesnmunchies  |  05/06/2011 at 4:29 pm

    cereal muffins? AWESOME!! umm LOVE THAT ROMPER!

  • 26. BrittFit  |  05/06/2011 at 4:31 pm

    I went out for a nice dinner too! I need to try this romper thing…us girls with booties should take advantage of this trend right? haha

    • 27. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:06 pm

      Um heck yesss πŸ˜›

  • 28. kate  |  05/06/2011 at 4:33 pm

    im jealous of your margarita unfortunately I got the mexican food but didnt have the booze 😦 those cookies look delish and I love your nail polish which reminds me I need to paint mine asap ! Have a fab friday!

    • 29. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:07 pm

      Hope u had a great weekend!!! πŸ™‚

  • 30. Gina  |  05/06/2011 at 4:50 pm

    I need to invest in a romper. Yours is sooo cute!

    • 31. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:08 pm

      Thanks love πŸ˜‰

  • 32. Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit  |  05/06/2011 at 4:54 pm

    I wish I could pull of the romper. Everything fancy just looks awkward on me. I… worked late, made some salad (but put some avocado in there!) and then went to bed early. Lame, I know. But it was a good day!

  • 33. pawsitivelife  |  05/06/2011 at 5:38 pm

    I would kill to do one, a single one pull up. Thats one exercise I think would come in handy in real life (like when your running away from someone and have to hop a fence)

  • 34. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)  |  05/06/2011 at 6:07 pm

    Those cookies look pretty damn good for being the first ones you’ve ever made πŸ™‚ Cookies never last long in my house either!

  • 35. Jenn @ Peas & Crayons  |  05/06/2011 at 7:51 pm

    I hearrrrrrrrrt LMFAO! “YES” is my ringtone =) have you seen the vid for it? hil-arious! ❀ Happy weekend my dear! mwah!

    • 36. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:09 pm

      O0o0 no I gotta look it up πŸ™‚

  • 37. Alexandra  |  05/06/2011 at 8:56 pm

    Loooove the romper, so adorable! I’ve always wanted to get one, but never found one that fit right without giving me a wedgie hahaha πŸ˜€ Happy weekend to you!

  • 38. Lauren  |  05/07/2011 at 1:42 am

    I went out for Mexi and was SHOCKED that I got a table within 20 minutes, despite the fact that it was Cinco de Mayo and graduation weekend. Not complaining, though. Definitely had a marg in my hand πŸ™‚

    I’m SO jealous of your romper!!! I want one so bad but can never decide if it fits right.

    • 39. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:10 pm

      I’m super picky too πŸ™‚

  • 40. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin  |  05/07/2011 at 6:47 am

    That romper is SO cute! And those cookies look great for your first time! πŸ˜€

  • 41. Tara  |  05/07/2011 at 7:33 am

    Rompers and cookies would be my favorites too! I’m OBSESSED with rompers. Ever since I went to Europe I am in love with them!

  • 42. Hollie @ Lolzthatswim(andRun)  |  05/07/2011 at 8:26 am

    Party Rock Album is one of my favorite songs. I could jam out to it forever. Seriously one of the best songs ever.

  • 43. Ma Ma Megan  |  05/07/2011 at 8:52 am

    I am in love with rompers. They are so cute and look so comfy (that’s my style right there!)
    When I was in gymnastics, I could do 5 pull ups on my own, now I’m I think I would need assistance πŸ˜›

  • 44. fashionfitnessfoodie  |  05/07/2011 at 9:56 am

    I love that romper too!! I saw it in the store yesterday πŸ™‚ I bought a dress there for a rehearsal dinner last night!

    • 45. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:11 pm

      The dresses are adorable πŸ˜€

  • 46. Katie  |  05/07/2011 at 10:03 am

    I had a pulled pork taco salad, sans margarita. *sigh* I needed one to complete the fiesta!

    • 47. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:11 pm

      Sounds delish πŸ™‚

  • 48. moveovercelery  |  05/07/2011 at 10:17 am

    No one needs to wait three hours to eat! Sorry that happened, girlie. 😦 At least you guys still had fun, though! Love that romper!

  • 49. Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner)  |  05/07/2011 at 10:26 am

    LOVE THE ROMPER!! Aah you are gonna look such a STUNNER in that one as always!! πŸ˜€

    And those cookies and muffins look DELISH!!! Making me drool on my keyboard again!! πŸ˜›

    • 50. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:12 pm

      Haha thanks girl πŸ™‚

  • 51. Serena  |  05/07/2011 at 12:42 pm

    What an adorable romper! Those cookies look way better than my first attempt at cookies. I tried to make snickerdoodles and they ended up being more like cinnamon sugar doughnut holes!

    • 52. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:14 pm

      I’d still eat it!

  • 53. lindsay  |  05/07/2011 at 1:30 pm

    cute cute ! I need to get to express! and assisted pull ups are my favorite. I feel so strong!

  • 54. lifttorun  |  05/07/2011 at 4:55 pm

    I totally forgot it was Cinco de Mayo. Hahah. So I didn’t do anything.

    That romper is so cute!

  • 55. Christina  |  05/07/2011 at 7:30 pm

    Mmmm…I want one of those margaritas right now! I think your cookies look great, I bet they taste pretty darn good too! πŸ˜€

  • 56. paoang  |  05/07/2011 at 10:25 pm

    Ahhh the On the Border that’s by my house is ALWAYS full as well. I can imagine how it must’ve been on Cinco de Mayo! :O

    And I absolutely love all the baking that’s been going on, looking forward to your cereal “experiment” πŸ˜€


  • 57. Maris (In Good Taste)  |  05/08/2011 at 1:12 am

    Your cookies look great – baker or not πŸ™‚

  • 58. Sara @ Nourish and Flourish  |  05/08/2011 at 3:08 am

    I love your nail polish color in the cookie picture! What is it?

    The Express romper you purchased is too cute! Perfect for summer! I actually almost bought the same one!

    I’m a huge fan of the assisted pull up machine. Let’s just say I have a *little* ways to go before I can do one on my own. πŸ™‚

    • 59. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:18 pm

      It’s by Pronto. The shade is 105 πŸ™‚

  • 60. allieksmith  |  05/08/2011 at 7:36 am

    I NEED to listen to the new LMFAO song!! YAY!
    So glad your Cinco de Mayo was awesome, except for the crazy 3hr wait!

  • 61. leashieloo  |  05/08/2011 at 9:40 pm

    I went to happy hour with some co-workers for some Coronas πŸ™‚ Then we tried to get some Mexican food, but it didn’t quite work out…there was like a 2 hour wait everywhere!

  • 62. kissmybroccoli  |  05/08/2011 at 9:57 pm

    Mmm, cereal muffins sound great, especially with berries and milk!

    No ‘ritas for me on lo cinco, but I did have an amazing salad!

    That romper is super cute! I bet you look oh so schmexy in it! πŸ˜‰

    • 63. Jenny  |  05/09/2011 at 3:19 pm

      Thanks love! πŸ˜€

  • 64. Alexandra (Veggin' Out in the Kitchen)  |  05/08/2011 at 10:37 pm

  • 65. Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food  |  05/09/2011 at 12:47 am

    I can’t imagine waiting even two hours for dinner, I am definitely a hangry girl when I have to wait for food! πŸ˜›
