Friday Favorites 7/19/13

Hope you all enjoyed my last post about the cost of race registrations-I got lots of great comments! It's Friday again, and it's been a long, busy week. I'm so ready to be a lazy summer bum all weekend, except this weekend looks jam packed! Here's some things that have gotten me through the week:

1. Favorite Song: Supersoaker by Kings of Leon

Kings of Leon is one of my favorite bands. They are awesome live and put out some solid rock and roll music.  The single of their upcoming record was released this week, and I LOVE it. It's a great summertime rock song.

2. Favorite Snack: Biscoff spread on anything


I few years ago I found the Trader Joe's Cookie Butter, which is a copycat of this Biscoff spread, and fell in love. As I picked up a few groceries from Aldi last weekend I found this in the sale bin for $2 and impulsively put it in my cart. I've been eating this everyday on cinnamon raisin toast for breakfast or with bananas or apples as a snack. It's very dangerous because it's so delicious and sweet!

3. Favorite Item on my Wish list: Mint Green Huffy Bicycle from Target


I love all things mint green and am really lusting over this adorable bicycle-it even has a basket! I'm a bit scared to bike around the city because I'm totally going to fall but really want to have a bicycle while the weather is still warm! Somebody please buy me this, and I'll love you forever.

4. Favorite Quick Dinner: Trader Joe's frozen turkey burgers


This week has been mostly leftovers for dinner. It's been too hot to cook, and I've been too tired. Last night after a quick run I felt like a huge salad and one of these burgers with some sweet potato fries. They take less than ten minutes to cook from frozen and taste delicious. I've eaten these burgers a couple times this week for lunch and dinner! On a side note, my hunger has been crazy due to marathon training and I'm up on a few pounds from last month (eek, more on this issue later!).

5. Favorite Funny:  TGIF! Enjoy the weekend!


 Anybody have fun plans this weekend? Any snack recipes you suggest I try?


  1. I cannot be trusted with a jar of TJ's cookie butter. It's soooooooooo good!

    1. I know. I need to measure it out to stop myself from eating a ginormous scoop of it!

  2. My fun plans include doing my long run around bwi airport and spotting the emu along the bike trail! And maybe hitting up that UA sale too

  3. Love the bike!!! So pretty! You should totally buy it...

  4. Love Trader Joes cookie butter but I have never tried the Biscoff one! Yummm
