Lovin/Not Lovin’ March Edition

Linking up once again with Courtney, Mar and Cynthia for their #FridayFive link up. Today’s them is “favorites.” Sounds like the perfect time for another edition of Lovin/Not Lovin.’


tortilla soupChicken Tortilla Soup — This soup has become a huge favorite this winter (in fact I just made it again earlier this week). It’s super easy  – dump everything in the crockpot and go — and you can dial the spice up or down.



Winter Boots —  These Timberlands have been my saving grace this winter. I truly love these boots! <Affiliate link alert!>

Arc Trainer
I recently discovered the Arc Trainer at my gym and it is quickly becoming my new fave cardio machine when I’m not on the mill!

Uptown Funk — With so much indoor training, the tunes are critical! I’m lovin’ this Bruno Mars song.

 Not Lovin’

The scary side of so much snow! — Roof collapses are starting to be a regular feature on the local news around here. Last Saturday morning, our town ice rink roof came down – thankfully no one was hurt! Definitely too close for comfort!



  1. I love that Bruno Mars song, too. Have you seen the video of the cute gym teacher dancing to it w/ his students?

    And soup has gotten me through the winter, I swear!

  2. I also love winter boots- but I bought mine solely for function (bean boots), whereas it looks like you got yourself some fashionable ones, too! Lucky you!

  3. I swear my soup and chili production has reached record levels this year. Very cute boots! I’ve got Bogs that Thing 1 steals all the time. Cuz owning her own pair would not be cool. Ha! Happy weekend!

  6. That soup looks delicious! I love an easy soup in crock pot. Set it and forget it. Perfect for these cold winter nights.

  7. Yikes on the rink! I have been living in my snow boots since we went skiing and came back to snow, snow, and more snow.

  9. My daughter loves singing uptown funk and I’m always worried that is doesn’t sound like funk! hehe

    As for the snow, I am over it and there are definitely safety concerns in my area as well. I just hope that we can begin to thaw out next week since the temperatures are practically spring-like at high 30’s to 40 degrees.
