Friday Favorites 2/28/2014

See, you can tell I'm feeling less stressed and busy now because I'm on a blogging roll! Yesterday was TGIT, but today I'm truly feeling TGIF! I have a bunch of things to share so of course I had to participate in a Five Things Friday linkup! 
Five Friday Favorites
1. Favorite sweet treat: Salazon Organic Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt & Caramel

The boyfriend did good and got me a whole bunch of chocolate bars from Whole Foods for Valentine's Day. I've pretty much devoured this one in 3 days. It's all organic andIt's a delicious dark chocolate with a bunch of sea salt on the outside and liquid caramel on the inside. SO good.  

2. Favorite weekend event: 86th Annual Academy Awards
oscars-2014

Every year for a while now I've had a little Oscars viewing party with my college friends where we dress up, have a few drinks, and fill out ballots with our predictions. Oh and of course seeing what everyone is wearing is fun too! It's something I look forward to, and I always love trying to see most of the movies.  I just hope Leonardo DeCaprio gets an Oscar one of these days because seriously, he freaking deserves one!

I loved his 2014 Golden Globes speech. And I love Jennifer Lawrence.
3. Favorite recipe to try this weekend: Seasoned Asparagus Fries from Jess at Just Call Me Janks

My fit friend and fellow I'm Fit Possible ambassador posted a photo teasing this a couple of days ago, and I couldn't wait for the recipe. These look delicious, and include a favorite seasoning of mine-Old Bay (#marylandproblems). I just so happen to have some asparagus sitting in the fridge right now...

4. Favorite fitness item: C9 by Champion sports bra from Target

When I was visiting my parents last weekend my mom had picked up a cute blue sports bra from Target she found on uber-sale that happened to be one of my favorites! I don't need a lot to support up there (sadly) so these simple, comfortable sports bras are my favorite! I even love wearing them on the weekends under a slouchy shirt when I don't feel like actually getting dressed. 

5. Favorite inbox surprise: I was chosen as a Fitfluential Ambassador!
FitFluential Is Fitness Found
It's all about the big blog news lately! Last night I was completely surprised to be notified that I was chosen as a Fitfluential ambassador! When I first started reading blogs it seemed like only all the big bloggers that I read and loved were Fitfluential ambassadors so I'm completely honored and shocked that I am part of that community now! Honestly I didn't think I had enough of the stats and readership and jumped up and down when I read the email last night. This means I'll be able to partner with more brands and hopefully share with you some more awesome products out there in the fitness/health world!

Do you watch the Oscars? For the films or the outfits?
