Favorite Things on Friday!

I keep seeing all these fun Friday favorite posts. I was about to write a post on love before I realized I have some favorites I can share from this past week. So many new things have made their way into my life! I love it. And I still probably will write that post on love so you may get 2 posts from me today.

Here we go… Favorite things Friday! They are all wellness-related so it can be a part of Fitness Friday too with Jill Conyers. YAY! Okay, am I just a little too excited on this Friday or what!??!

My first favorite from this past week is a new tea. I can’t get enough of this Lemon Zinger tea from Celestial Seasonings. I first tried this tea over Christmas in Colorado when my Aunt, Uncle, and cousins left some tea at my parent’s place there. It was Lemon Zinger and I immediately thought, “I love that I don’t have to cut up lemons for this tea.” I know, weird thought, but I always have cut up lemons on hand for my black teas. Although, as some of you know, I am cutting caffeine as part of my wedding health goals so am staying away from black teas. Well, this has been the PERFECT substitute!

My second favorite for this week is a picture of this cute, cuddly cat of mine. I saw her laying like this today and it melted my heart. Little soap box moment… I really do not understand people who do not like animals or pets. They are gifts from God! I treasure my pets.. hope you do too if you have any!



My third favorite for the week are these workout capri’s I just bought from Six:02. I LOVE the color! And the picture stinks, but I just wanted to get a close up of the pattern so you could see it. These are Under Armour pants and have you been to Six:02 yet? I love that they have many different fitness brands for women available under one roof. Very cool place if you love a variety of fitness brands!

My fourth favorite for the week is this book. I am reading it for my local book club that I just joined. I could not put it down. I read the whole thing in less than 5 days. It is about this lady, Alice, that hits her head in spin class and then cannot remember the last 10 years. She doesn’t remember that she was in the middle of a divorce; she still thinks she is in love with her separated husband. Very interesting take on a book and I loved it! I hope they make a movie out of this one.

My fifth favorite is the scent of Eucalyptus and Mint together. Oh my invigorating! I light it whenever I write a post or am working on something serious for work. It keeps the stress away!



I know you have a few favorites from the week. Name one for me! And then go and enjoy the weekend. 🙂

Sunday Social: Favorites


Howdy, y’all! I think I have Big Tex on the brain. Only a couple more weeks until the Texas State Fair and of course, we are getting closer to Fall too. I love Fall. The weather in Dallas this weekend was more fall-esque than summer. It was in the 70’s and heavenly. Please stay awhile, weather!  Anyway, it is Sunday so time for Sunday Social. This one is all about a few favorites…

  1. Favorite Scent: Currently, I will have to go with Vanilla Chai. I bought a Vanilla Chai candle from Bath & Body Works and I absolutely love it. When I am having a somewhat stressful day with work to do’s, I light this while working. It really does take at least a little of the stress away. I think of Fall, cooler weather, warm blankets, cozy fireplaces, and hot tea. A few of my favorite things… simple delights if you will.
  2. Favorite Food: Can I be 100% honest with you? My all-time favorite meal is one that I have at least 4 times per week and sometimes every single day. I LOVE it. It never gets old. This will be my go-to meal for life. I just know it. Anyway, drum roll please… my favorite food is peanut butter toast. I prefer freshly baked sourdough bread or Ezekial brand pita with chunky, natural peanut butter, topped with cinnamon, a drizzle of honey, and either raisins or sliced banana. Yum, yum, yum!!!!
  3. Favorite Sound: Any water sounds. I like the sound of rain hitting the window. I also like the sound of waves hitting the shore. Me love H2O!
  4. Favorite Picture currently on your phone: Me loving on my cat, Cali. She is my baby. And I don’t care if you call me the cat lady. I am one proud cat mama. Pets ROCK!IMG_3640
  5. Best memory of the year so far: I love all of my memories from this year so far, but I would say the best was visiting Hawaii. I am a beach girl at heart, even when living in concrete city. I loved being by the beach and, of course, spending time with my cousin-in-law and her son. Making memories in an awesome place with loved ones is perfection in my book.

What is your best memory of the year so far?
