Hi, friends! Happy FRIDAY to you!

I got home late last night because I went to the JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE concert last night with my friend Marisa. And, my gosh, we had an awesome time! What an incredible performer. Our evening also included a CrossFit workout and dinner and drinks at Legal Harborside, so it was quite the “moms’ night out!” If you’re on IG Stories, you can still see some of our adventures! So, it’s Friday and you know what that means: It’s time for the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately!

Kashi Go Lean Peanut Butter Crunch – OMG, this stuff is delicious! It actually reminds me of my Healthy (& Highly Addictive) Peanut Butter Granola, which is one of my favorite granolas ever!

Hornstra delivery – We’ve talked about getting Hornstra products delivered to our house basically since we discovered the service, but we never pulled the trigger until Mal’s school field trip a couple of weeks ago. He learned so much about the farm and its operations, it totally sold him. Now, we’re loving the convenience of the service as well as the “farm fresh” products!

How To Actually Get Sh*t Done, According To Science – Lots of helpful tidbits and ideas for getting stuff done!

Samina Dress – I freakin’ love this dress and just ordered it in black heather. Lovvvvveee! I can’t wait to get it! 🙂 This hooded sweatshirt dress was also a contender, but I ultimately liked the price and “lightweight-ness” of the one I purchased. It’s still super cute though!

2018 Boston Patient & Family IBD Symposium – I attended the one in 2016 and thought it was so interesting and helpful. The next one is scheduled for May 6th.

Zella Layer Me Pullover – I’ve blogged about this top in the past (isn’t it adorable?!), but just want to let you guys know it’s on sale for just $35 right now! Speaking of Zella favorites, the En Route Hoodie that I also own and love is now 40% off!

General Tso’s Chicken – This recipe from Skinnytaste looks amazingggggg! I already asked my coach if I could have it on my meal plan next week! 🙂

‘Better Sweater’ Jacket – I get so many questions about my Nike hoodie that’s made out of this same sweater-fleece material, so I wanted to share a jacket version of it because it’s super cute and looks so cozy! I want!

Zoku Iced Coffee Maker – Let me preface this by saying I have no idea if this actually works, but I love the idea – and the reviews on Amazon were pretty good. You chill this stainless steel mug in the freezer, then pop it in the insulating sleeve before you pour in your hot coffee. In minutes, it chills it without diluting it! I love that’s it’s a travel mug too. I might just need one in my life! 🙂

Laney II Trench Raincoat from The North Face– I’m sort of in the market for a new raincoat and recently stumbled upon this one. I haven’t commit yet, but I’m leaving it here for future reference in case I decide to take the plunge and buy it. Just wanted to pass along in case you’re shopping for a new raincoat, too! 🙂

The 20/30 Method at J.Crew – Take up to 20% off two items or 30% off three or more items!

5 Meatless Meals Meal Plan – Love this round-up of meatless meals for the week!

Question of the Day

What’s the best concert you’ve ever seen? 

JT was pretty epic, but Coldplay and The Killers put on an amazing show too!



  1. I am SO jealous that you got to see JT live! I would love to see him in concert!
    I’ve been wanting that patagonia fleece jacket for as long as I remember…I go the llbean fleece pullover for Christmas and I love it!

  2. I love that dress! I have a similar one made of sweatshirt material that I wear whenever it’s cold enough. I love being able to wear my workout clothes all day under a dress then just take the dress off and change my shoes at the gym.

    1. @Linda @ the Fitty: you have to start going to concerts! The atmosphere is so amazing! I went to 19 last year! Can’t stop! Everyone is in such a joyous mood! You also get a great workout dancing!

  3. I ❤️ Zella! The unsung hero of athletic wear. My Zella pieces last forever. And I agree – Coldplay was amazing!

  4. I agree with Melissa above. Zella is such a great brand! I love their leggings and they’re not expensive. Love the top you posted, too.

  5. The Justin Timberlake concert must have been incredible! When I was in middle school, my best friend at the time and I went to the ‘N Sync concert and though we had terrible seats, it was still one of the best concerts I’ve ever attended!

  6. I have the Zoku Iced Coffee Maker cup and yes, it does work! Put hot coffee in it and it will be cold in about 2 minutes. So great. If you haven’t tried the ice cream maker bowl, I highly recommend it. It comes with a few recipes but you can also make your own combinations. So good!

  7. Hey Tina! I’m looking at Lole right now and was wondering what size you ordered? I saw Paleomg ordered a dress there too and she’s a small, but I’m bigger than her…but their website shows I would be a small to them. Was curious on another opinion!
