TGIFriday Faves.

Happiest of Fridays to you! Hope you are enjoying today so far. It’s shaping up to be fun weekend around these parts. The State Fair of Texas opens today! Those of you that are Texans know what’s up. It’s basically the biggest fall event around! Corny dogs, ferris wheels, and cotton candy, oh my.


Big Tex says hello!



I am looking forward to going and me and my friend have tickets to the State Fair Classic game! Prairie View vs. Grambling State. It’s always a good game and I hear the halftime show is off the chain.

So excited. Makes me want to get my popcorn ready.

Let’s get to my faves this week!

Don’t be so judgy. Haha…really, don’t be. Especially with yourself and comparing yourself to others. I’ve always said that’s what I love the best about the running community. We are all on our own journeys in running and in life.

haha…yeah, don’t do that either.

Top five foods to make your skin glow. Yes yes, all about that.

Sweet potato and black bean vegan enchiladas. Definitely trying these out in the near future.

How to increase running mileage safely. I have always been leery of upping my mileage but I think with patience and time it can be done. Bring on more running and along with that…MORE yoga.

-All aztec everything. I am seeing all of these cute aztec sweaters on Pinterest…and I want them all.


What are you up to this weekend? Any fall festivals/carnivals?

    1. P.S. Did you get my comment on your latest post? I’ve been trying to post a few times and having technical issues so trying to figure it sorry if you got multiple replies from me!

  1. Ohhh, I love that sweater!! So sexy and trendy!! Also, I’m definitely trying the sweet potato/black bean enchilada!! That sounds amazing! I also LOVE the don’t compare talk!! It’s definitely important not to. You’re 100% right! Have a fun, fabulous weekend!! XOXO!

  2. Oh my gosh I bet Texas has the most epic state fairs. So much BBQ! I used to lovvvve corn dogs – haven’t had one in years but the Morningstar ones do the trick every now and then 😉 Also strangely enough I just opened up that black bean/sweet potato enchilada recipe in another window a few minutes before reading this. Spooooky 🙂 have a great weekend!

    1. Mmm yes to Morning Star farms! Yeah the fair has a lot of crazy fried (heart attack) foods but a lot of it makes my tummy feel icky. I only go for the cotton candy!! People love the famous corn dogs though for some reason!! The enchilada recipe is definitely a good one!

  3. I love state fairs! I used to go to the Iowa State Fair when I was a kid and it was pretty fantastic (especially if you’re a kid). Hope you have a great time! I’m back to working all weekend–probably helping lots of people running the Chicago Marathon get their marathon shoes. 🙂

  4. I thought BigTex had a mishap last year (or maybe the year before – I lose track of time). Did they fix him? The state fair of TX is one of the best!!!
