CrossFit/paleo challenage update:
Wrapping up week one of the paleo challenge and it's going well. I did lots of cooking and was able to work out a few times this week. I'm feeling much better and should be back to normal soon. RNCF is participating in Barbells for Boobs this weekend. My doctor told me to skip the wod but I'll be volunteering and attending the mixer. And finally, Two blog readers are taking the basics course at River North CrossFit (girls, if you're reading this please email me!) and another reader emailed to tell me she's started CrossFit, too. Love it!

And a few other things:
I had lunch with Maya Kaminsky, founder of w8fit, yesterday. Amazing girl with a brilliant concept–weighted workout clothing for women. She gave me a set of these cuffs (which are awesome) and I am ordering this top in turquoise.

I photographed this family last year and will be photographing them for their '12 holiday card photos on Sunday.

We (as in The Everygirl) are shooting something for Home Depot today. 

Poor Mr. Handsomeface had to see the vet yesterday. He has very sensitive skin and develops a rash on his stomach a few times a year. His usual meds weren't cutting it and the little guy is now on steroids and antibiotics. Oh, Buddy.

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!


  1. Without a doubt I'd choose the throw (I'm seeing those oversized pom poms on everything and I love it) and the chair.

    Love it all though! Hope the pup feels better. My shih tzu has a similar problem so I can relate.

  2. Great picks, love the pouf, so fab! Following you now via GFC, if you get time feel free to check out my blog as well :-)

    have a great day!

  3. I love the pouf but maybe in another colour as my whole apartment is white lol

    Love Chrissi xo


  4. I am in love with that throw with the little pom poms.

  5. I think I just need to bite the bullet and try crossfit. I'm SO terrified. And I need that throw + pouf.

    1. I was SO scared, but not until I walked in and saw everyone doing box jumps (and those still scare me since I fell doing them). But it's so different than I thought it would be and I really do love it. I would go every day if I didn't need a rest day. And this is coming from a girl who hadn't kept up a workout routine for even a month.

  6. just a heads up dear, your twitter link in the right upper corner doesn´t work... you might wanna fix that :-) thanks for the follow and I follow your other networks as well

    xoxo Keke


  7. I want to curl up in that chair right now!
