Five Little Things I loved this week:

1. Mother’s Day Tulips

These beauties have brightened up my entire week. My husband remembered my favorite flowers and these tulips have been such a happy sight to see every time I set foot in the kitchen.

2. Good People & Good Stories

With all the sad stories in the media, I am always happier when stories of good people are featured on the news. I wanted to share these stories that made my heart smile. It’s always a good way to end the week. There’s the loving son who surprised his very deserving mother with the gift of a house on Mother’s Day, the family who finds a winning lotto ticket in a cookie jar, and this very special lady:

3. Better than Spandex

Sweat it out

It’s that time of year where I reevaluate my workout clothes and check the tread on my shoes. These are some of my favorite things, and I can’t tell you how in love I am with Nike’s updated Legend 2.0 capris. I know so many people who are gaga for their Lulu’s but truth be told, I find it a little too heavyweight for my liking. These are perfect!

4. Motivating Apps

As you can guess, going to the gym is a huge part of my life, and I’m always open to new ways to stay motivated, especially since, as my sister says, things like chocolate are an occupational hazard. This week, my favorite app is NTC: Nike Training Club. It’s an awesome way to add a little something extra after a class, when I get back home, or if I miss the gym altogether.

5. Ab-hancer

And if all else fails, there’s this:

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone! Hope you get to spend some time outdoors!

    Liren, once again I am moved by your weekly Five Little Things. I was especially touched by the story of the family who won the Lottery, not because of the money, but because the money allowed them to hold onto their little girl’s room. Warmed my heart.<3

    Your tulips are beautiful! I got some for Mother’s Day, also, as they’re one of my favorite flowers as well. I have to admit that I’m hooked on Lululemon, Athleta, and Lucy for workout gear, but the Nike items you featured look much different than the ones I purchased so long ago. I think I’ll have to re-visit that brand! I wish it were as simple as just using an ab-enhancer!

    Hi Liren – oh my, that ab device totally cracked me up. Hee hee . . . I need motivation to exercise too! I’m one of those people that just needs friends with whom to exercise. I’m seriously considering joining a gym! Anyway, happy mother’s day! Those are some gorgeous tulips, and I’m continually awed by your gorgeous photography and eye for design. Keep up the fantastic work!

    Those tulips are gorgeous and for a very deserving mom. I need to re-evalute my workout gear and maybe actually work out more. I stopped by a few orchards and it’s looking great out there. Hope you come out this way soon. Enjoy your weekend.
