Friday Vibes

Friday Vibes at Aggie's Kitchen

Ooooo, something new! So, what’s this Friday Vibes business you are wondering? Weeeelllll…welcome to the first installment of what I hope to be a fun weekly (possibly bi-weekly, I can be anti-committal at times) post where I share with you happy ,”good vibe” and interesting-to-me stuff that I have come across to kick off one of my favorite days of the week, Fridays. Fridays are like one of those deep, relaxing breaths of fresh air for me – the hard part of the week is over and on Fridays, I like to regroup, recharge and get my mind right for the weekend.

Let’s handle our Friday business then, shall we?

Obsessed (OBSESSED) with flower pot people…this has me and my daughter written all over it.

A clean enough house = house goals.

Want to crack open a new book this weekend? Book recs here and here and here (oh and how about 32 books to add to your shelf in 2016).

Jamie Oliver's Everyday Superfood

…and I’m excited about my new cookbook that arrived straight from the UK last week – a birthday gift from my dear friend Sandy. I love Happy Mail.

I purchased PowerSheets a couple of years ago and never used them, Bree has inspired me to go look for them and Make It Happen.

I shared this story from my college town of Gainesville on FB last week, and here’s the follow-up story that I certainly did not expect. Such a feel good story. I’m not going to lie, I teared up a bit too. #letkidsbekids  (Edited to add…these kids will be at the Magic game that my family and I are going to this weekend! Cool!)

Nine Secrets of Effortlessly Lean – sounds easier than it is, but really good article. I tucked #7 into my brain.

This video…my friend Kristen shared it with me last week and it made me smile. I may or may not have watched it more than a few times. Oh, and I want to go to Africa now. (Animal Kingdom will work for now).

  1. Oooooh Friday Vibes!!!! I like it sista!! Thank you so much for including me!!! xoxo

  2. Love that article about the secrets of the effortlessly lean! I truly struggle when people tell me they’ve eliminated X food group so they can weigh Y by Z date…and I hear it all the time. I think of my Mom as my true food role model. She is a moderation follower, eats healthy most of the time, but leaves nothing as off limits. It is truly the only way to be “healthy”

    • Yes, I am so with you on that! Was just having that same conversation with someone yesterday about eliminating…if anything I think it makes more people obsessed with whatever food group they can’t have. Definitely not a bad thing to “cut back” in healthy moderation and know what works for you…I think that is the key, being flexible and HONEST enough with yourself to know what works for you and cut yourself some slack! I also struggle when I hear people talk about eating healthy as if it’s a burden, I guess when it becomes a lifestyle it’s no longer a burden and just feels right! I’m glad you liked the article Erica, the head trainer at my gym shared it on his facebook page and I thought it was well written! Have a great weekend mama!! xoxo

      • PS…major props to your mom for being that healthy role model, I really hope my kids (daughter especially) can say that about me one day

  3. Well you know how happy this makes me!! Doesn’t it feel good? I can’t wait for more!

  4. What a FUN happy post. Love this new addition, and Erin’s quinoa recipe … oh, my goodness. Happy Friday, Aggie! I’m glad you like your UK cookbook 🙂

  5. <3 this!! And love that you included Snoopy! 🙂
