TGIF!!!!! I need this weekend so bad right now. This was the longest week of my life! I'm just counting down the days until San Diego :) I need the beach.
How is the weather where you're at? In Tucson it dropped 20 degrees in one day. Literally. We have highs around 55 for the next week or so. I'm not overly thrilled about the temperature drop, especially first thing in the morning, but I actually don't mind it all that much. One of my favorite things in the world is curling up on the couch in a sweater with a cup of hot tea while it's cold outside, and my favorite clothes are fall/winter clothes (leggings, boots, tunic tops and sweaters!) so it's not all bad.
I have a question before I dive into my post....would anyone be interested in doing a "What's In My Fridge" Link up next week? I did one last summer and I thought it was pretty cool to see what food everyone keeps handy in their fridges, especially for people just getting into healthy eating. If anyone's interested, I was thinking next Thursday. Let me know if you would want to link up and show everyone what staples you keep to eat around your house!
I have lots of favorites crowding my mind this Friday! Let's start with this delicious oatmeal...
Last week I was alllllll about the cappuccino oats, but I can feel a comeback in these PB&J oats. I really can't resist anything PB&J.
I'm officially obsessed with the candy cane green tea from Trader Joe's. I was anticipating this pepperminty tea, and it's just PERFECTION. Vanilla and cinnamon with a hint of candy cane swirl......TRY IT. Please. Please try it. I'm literally going to Trader Joe's next week to buy 50 boxes. I'm not joking.
Our Christmas tree!! We put it up Monday. Well, "put it up" is a loose term since it was already decorated and together in the guest bedroom, so really we just pulled it out and plugged in the lights :)
My students get me. One of my kids gave me the poster of Finnick and another kid made the sign....they told me a husbandu is a person you want to marry/date but you can't because they're a fictional character. I guess they could be pulling my leg but I'm just rolling with it! Finnick Odair YES.
This week I decided I can't give up handstands right now. I just can't. No. I'm trying to learn to pop up with my left leg, which is turning out to be surprisingly difficult. Actually, maybe not that surprising....I can't write with my left hand so learning to do this probably wouldn't be that easy either. Yesterday I felt a little progress and was able to hold a few. I'm hoping I can learn to pp up with my left leg efficiently enough that I can get back into regular handstand practice.
EGG NOG PROTEIN SHAKE. Absolutely. Some people are still all about pumpkin, some, like Davida, are into gingerbread right now, but when the holidays come around I can't get enough egg nog. I'm salivating thinking about this shake. Recipe next week!
And finally, this hat that I just MUST have. I think I'm going to treat myself to a Christmas present to myself....this hat is exactly like the one that Zoe wears in American Horror Story Coven and I need to be a witch, obviously :)
I hope you are all doing well today! Enjoy Friday...it's the best day of the week. I have to get up bright and early for a Walk-A-Thon for the DC trip tomorrow morning so I will get some exercise....we are walking 5 miles! It should be pretty fun. Have a great day!
What is your favorite thing on this fabulous Friday?
