Happy Friday! It doesn’t seem so bad when the work week was only 4 days long, right? Either way, I’m pretty pumped about the weekend. As of writing this, it’s supposed to snow this weekend, so I’m not exactly thrilled. On the upside, though, at least it’ll snow when I have no obligations, so I can sit by the fire and sip hot cocoa until the snow melts. Which better happen in 5 seconds. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m not much of a winter person!
Now that it’s Friday, it’s time to look back on all the fun things that made me smile this week. Friday Favorites is one of my favorite posts to write because it gives you a peek into the things that are making life awesome in my world. Enjoy!
Never Give Up by Sia
My love for Sia knows no bounds. She is flawless, brilliant, and amazingly talented. When her new song, Never Give Up, came out I started playing it on repeat.
Suja Green Juice
I’ve been a huge fan of Suja juices for a while now. The other day, I noticed they were selling a large version of their Mighty Dozen green juice and I jumped on it!
I can’t seem to find the large bottle version on their website, but I found it at my Harris Teeter.
I found the best planner at TJ Maxx! I love being organized, but I’ve found that sometimes the more complicated planners can make being organized harder than it needs to be. Finding the right sticker/color coded tab/etc. can sometimes be an even bigger hindrance to organizing than just writing things in the right spot.
This new planner has two pages for each week. Page one has the day breakdown for to-dos, but then the second page is blank for notes/goals for the whole week. I’ve enjoyed writing out weekly goals in addition to my day-by-day items.
I tried finding it online for you guys, but I had some trouble. This site was the closest I came and the item was out of stock. Womp womp. Check your local TJ Maxx I guess?
Essential Oils Sleep Blend
I picked up this “sleep & unwind” oil blend from my favorite store (TJ Maxx again, duh) and have been putting several drops on my pillow before turning out the lights this week. No lie, I’ve been asleep probably within 10 minutes every single time. A few deep breaths with this stuff right by your head and you’ll sleep like a baby! I’m not really into that whole “use an oil for everything” deal that’s super popular right now, but I had to admit that this one was a great purchase.
Quick Full Body Workouts
I’d pinned this workout by Heather a little while ago, knowing it would come in handy. The other day, when I slept through my alarm for hot yoga, I rolled out of bed knowing I only had about 25 minutes in my living room before I had to shower. I powered through 3 rounds in about 20 minutes and I even threw in some 90 second cardio bursts in between rounds. I’m keeping this one in my back pocket for those kind of days!
And now I’m off to get the weekend started. There’s a lot to do before all that snow rolls in tonight. And by “a lot to do” I mean make sure we have wine. Have a good one and I’ll see you all Monday!
What’s on your weekend agenda?
