Let’s talk Friday Favorites today! After complaining about my food mood on Wednesday, I think it’s important for me (and for everyone) to remember to focus on the positives and the things we do like rather than dwell on the things we don’t like, don’t you agree?
It’s that time of year! I have always enjoyed Ralph’s Ices and since I have been in a funk about what I have been eating lately, I am treating myself to whatever I think will make me happy.
Ralph’s has a new creme ice flavor this year – chocolate graham marshmallow. I highly recommend it. I always get the snickers fudge (which was renamed peanut butter candy bar fudge but whatever) and then I choose an extra scoop of another flavor too just so I don’t have to pick one.
Angel has been my favorite perfume since college. My son bought me a new bottle for Mother’s Day and it makes me so happy to smell it each morning.
Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate
I bought another Pound Plus Dark Chocolate bar from Trader Joe’s this week and it is definitely my favorite chocolate at the moment.
What I like most about the Dark Chocolate Pound Plus bar is that the chocolate chunks are big blocks. I cannot tolerate thin bars of chocolate. I need my chocolate to have a substantial bite to it otherwise I am really not satisfied.
My Coloring Book
I am still busy coloring almost every night while I watch television. Call me pathetic but I kept coloring every page aside from a few of my favorite cake and cupcake patterns because I was SAVING them. Saving them for what? I don’t know, I guess a special occasion.
I’ve had this coloring book for a couple of months and finally chose to color my favorite pretty patterns during my birthday week. It’s the little things in life. Yes, I know I sound ridiculous.
Running this time of year with the sun up as early as me is really the best. I remain grateful for each morning that I can get out there and just run.
Body & Weight Changes During and After a Training Cycle < – great post and really honest. We all go through this, it’s totally normal and important to hear from others.
Ode to Easy Runs < – Easy paced runs are really important and should be enjoyed. Not every run should be fast!
Mini Garlic Butter Skillet Pizzas < – I always forget to use my cast iron skillet to make pizza! Please remind me for next week.
Fire Works Sugar Cookie Cake < – Must make this since I am all about M&M’s right now, maybe for Father’s Day!
Friday Favorites Flashback:
Friday Favorites June 2015! – It’s super fun for me to look back and see what I was loving EXACTLY one year ago!
And a Friday favorites recipe flashback just because my easy recipe for Cold S’mores is suddenly a popular search term and pin on pinterest.
My Cold S’Mores are no bake, so super easy and delicious, please make them! You can make a bunch of these Cold S’Mores and keep them in your freezer to have on hand whenever you need a sweet snack. All you need is graham crackers, marshmallows, whipped topping and some chocolate chips. Recipe here.
