Friday Favorites: Recipe for a Friday Morning

As Friday mornings go, taking into account that whole have-to-get-up-and-go-to-work thing, this one was relatively lovely. It started off on a good note, as I woke up next to this snugglebug:
I was running early this morning (which never happens) and was rewarded with a blissfully empty gym for most of my workout:

excuse the missing bite... I couldn't wait
What a great way to start the day! Now only 5 more hours until I am officially on weekend time... I am so ready for this one.
Hope that your Friday morning was just as wonderful!
