Friday Favorites

TGIF y'all!  We made it to the weekend!  Or as they say in Madden's Kindergarten class: it's "Yippee Skippy Friday!"  Whatever you want to call it, there are a glorious couple of days ahead...

Well, let's get after it today, shall we?  I figured there was no better way to jump start my blogging return than to join in one of my very fave link-ups to read every week: Friday Favorites!  There are no rules to this, and it's a complete hodge podge of randomness, but that's what I love the most.  I love being nosy and am always interested in what others are loving at the moment.  I know that I walk away from most of these posts with some great new ideas every week.  So let's get to it!  Here is what I'm loving this Friday...

1.}  These Lululemon Align Pants.  I would be remiss if I didn't start my faves with some workout related attire ;)  But seriously you guys.  If you can't seem to gut the price tag that comes along with Lulu gear, I totally get it.  But these pants.  Oh these pants.  They are worth their weight in GOLD!  I received my first pair for Christmas, and let me tell you, I never want to take them off!  I mean, I own my fair share of lulu gear (just ask my husband) but these are hands down my absolute FAVE!  They literally feel as soft as butter and most days when I wear them, I have to do a double take to make sure that I am even wearing pants, because I almost feel naked in them! So.  If I haven't sold you on them yet, just go test a pair out in store.  Then thank me later ;)

2.}  These Power Crunch Protein Bars.  Ok, another "healthy/fitness" fave, but being that it's still technically the new year, I thought you might appreciate these little tid bits of healthy info!  I have eaten a lot of protein bars in my lifetime.  And I do mean a LOT.  But these bad boys are amazzzzzing.  I eat at least one a day.  No joke.  They are usually my after dinner "dessert" to curb my sweet tooth at night.  I don't know what it is about anything salted caramel flavor, but I am drawn to it whenever/wherever it is offered and these guys live up to my expectations and then some.  Delish.  I got mine through Amazon Prime because: hello, 2 day free shipping!  But I've also seen them at my local grocery store and Whole Foods. 

3.}  These CC Beanies.  I'm a hat girl.  I wear hats when I work out, I wear fedoras in the summer time, and floppy wool hats in the winter.  Not only are they adorable and a great accessory to any outfit, the main reason I love me some hats is because they require absolutely zero hair maintenance.  So I haven't washed my hair in four days?  No one is the wiser!  I own a lot of hats, so when I bought this hat for our most recent ski trip, I fell instantly in love!  They legitimately look great on EVERYONE!  And with soooooo many different color options, you can't go wrong.  I may or may not own 3 of them now...
4.}  This Vanilla Snowflake Candle.  Now, there's nothing like Bath and Body Works "Tis the Season" scented anything.  Hand's down my favorite scent from there.  But that's clearly a seasonal one, so when I was on the hunt for something to transition from Christmas to Spring, I found this one.  It is perfect.  Not too sweet and light, which is what I look for in the Spring, but not too spicy like I look for in the winter.  This is the perfect balance.  It gives me the warm fuzzies...and you will find it burning in my house everyday from now until April ;)

5.}  These Ugg Slippers.  I don't know about you guys, but when I'm at home, I don't want to be wearing my shoes, but I also don't want to be barefoot because my feet tend to be the first thing to freeze.  Insert these slippers or "house shoes" as I like to call them.  ;)  I have owned a few pair of ugg slippers and boots in my lifetime, but I just got these for Christmas and they are my absolute favorite ones to date.  They are not only cozy, but they legitimately could be mistaken for actual shoes and be worn out of the house. (Not that I'm speaking from experience or anything...)  So if you are in the market for slippers or shoes that are worth every penny, these are it.  They are literally like walking on puffy warm clouds.  Plus, there are a lot that are on sale right now, so add them to your Valentine's Day list.  Try them on, and decide for yourself...

Ok folks.  That's about it for my Friday Faves!  I hope that each and every one of you has an awesome weekend and get to spend it doing something that you love!

Until next time...

  5. Power Crunch bars are some of my favorites! I didn't even know they made a salted caramel one?! I usually get the peanut butter ones & could eat an entire box in one sitting, haha. Those beanies are cute! I've seen them online but haven't gotten one yet! I found your blog through the link up-- do you live in Nebraska!? I live in Omaha!

    1. Oh I am in LOVE!!! I haven't tried the peanut butter ones, but I'm sure I would devour those as well, since I love peanut butter anything!! But girl, if you haven't tried salted caramel, you need to! They are to die for!! And while you are at it, grab yourself one of those beanies...you won't regret it! And I am so glad you found me!! I do live in NE! I'm an Omaha girl myself!! Such a small world!! I hope you stick around...and maybe we will cross paths one day? ;)
