HI friends! Happy Friday and hellooooooo from the Great Wolf Lodge. We were originally supposed to be on the way to NYC – there were a lot of reasons for canceling, but decided to do a Disney cruise in January instead – and ended up doing a little fall break staycation at GWL. The kids LOVE it here and are at the perfect ages to enjoy everything they have to offer. I think this is our fourth trip and we’ve had a blast each time.
Other than Great Wolf Lodge, the kids have a birthday party, friend/family dinner, and I’m getting everything ready to start the Dr. Cabral detox on Monday.
I will definitely share more about my experience! If you want to join, you can still order here and use FITNESSISTA20 for 20% off. They ship very quickly and you can start whenever you receive your goodies.
I’d love to hear what you’re up to this weekend! I hope you have a relaxing and lovely one ahead.
It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party. This is where I share some of my favorite finds from the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your faves, too, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.
Six! Season tickets for Broadway in Tucson were my Mother’s Day gift, and it’s already one my favorite gifts. I love having shows to look forward to all year!
I took madre with me to see Six on opening night and it.was.everything. I had no clue what to expect and was blown away! It’s unlike traditional musicals, as there are no set or costume changes. The six performers are onstage with the band the entire time, and it has like a concert vibe to it. It still has an amazing plot, deep moments, lots of comic relief, and the entire audience was clapping, cheering, and fully enjoying themselves.
The performers were so incredibly talented, and each “wife’s” musical style is similar to names we’d recognize, like Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande, Sia, and Beyonce. Highly, highly recommend it — I want to see it again! Also, please drop your favorite Tudor/Henry VIII historian fiction recs my way.

As soon as I found out this cookbook was on the way, I ordered a copy.
Thrive Market goodies! I order from Thrive Market every couple of weeks and stock up on pantry essentials, snacks for the kids, dog treats, and household items, like dish soap, laundry detergent, etc. The prices are so much better than Whole Foods and they have so many of our favorite brands. My Thrive Market staples are here and you can use my referral link for 40% off your first order. Since I order from Thrive Market and our meat from Butcher Box, I don’t have to get as much when I go to the grocery store.
(LOVE this granola on smoothie bowls)
Fashion + beauty:
Got this cute sweater set and am thinking about ordering another color. I’ll definitely wear it a lot with low-top sneakers or booties, and the material quality is excellent. When I bought it, it was $50 and now it’s $35!
I always travel with the sheet mask version of this, but just found out you can get it in a jar, too. It smells like a dream and doesn’t irritate my skin, which can be sensitive with masks.
Happy Friday, friends!
Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see ya soon.
