Friday Favorites 11/1/2013

So how is it already become November? I was just getting used to the beginning of Fall not the end! I don't think I'm ready for Thanksgiving, Christmas, cold weather, and snow. I'll gladly enjoy the hot cocoa, presents, and cookies though :)
Since I was sick last week and missed posting my favorites of the week, I had plenty of favorites to share with you  today!

Five Friday Favorites

#1-Pumpkin Harvest and Harvest Blend Teas

These two teas are rocking my socks right now. The pumpkin one actually tastes like pumpkin pie-so delicious. I also can't get enough of the Trader Joe's Harvest Blend Tea. I've been drinking a mug of it at night before bed because it's caffeine free and tastes like spiced apple cider. Yum!

#2 Fit2Flex's Puma Plyometric Power Workout


I always love reading the Fit2Flex blog and pinned this  bodyweight workout a couple days ago. Honestly I'm feeling pretty sore today so I might do this after workout and then have a nice stretching and foamrolling session followed by a glass of wine. Fridays for the win. 

#3-"30 Days of Little Things Challenge"
Download the printable here!
I stumbled upon Julie's blog Savvy Eats this week and have been loving all the posts! I am going to take part in her "30 Days of Little Things Challenge" where she created a printable for you to fill out one think you are thankful for each day of November. I made a list like this a few years ago and it was a great way to stay positive and have a few moments of mindfulness at the beginning or end of each day.  

#4-Candy Corn Peanut Butter Protein Cookies


It doesn't matter that Halloween is over, you can still enjoy all the leftover candy or bags of candy corn you get for 75% off :) I was so excited when I pinned this recipe for candy corn peanut butter protein cookies. I mean, they're healthy because they are loaded with protein, right? They look super easy to make, and I may just have to make them this weekend!

#5 J.Crew Jeweled Donegal sweater
I hate the cold, but I do love sweaters. I love this sweater in gray from J.Crew that looks cozy but can also be dressed up because of the jeweled clusters around the collar.  I've seen some similar styles but cheaper at Forever 21, Old Navy, and Loft,too!

Do you have lots of leftover Halloween candy? Any big weekend plans?

  4. Yep, sounds like that tea and I need to be introduced :)

  5. Oh my goodness I would love to wear a sweater like that!!! I am going to print that thankful list out right now. Such a wonderful way to start each day.

    1. Print it out-it's a really lovely way to reflect!
