Happy Friday! I apologize for the delay in getting this post live for all of you lovelies to link up earlier. I went to bed feeling a little under the weather last night, and I woke up feeling worse this morning.
Whatever is trying to take me down better take a back seat because I’ve got exciting plans this weekend! I am joining a group of girls for a few nights away to surprise a very special bride-to-be. We will be celebrating her bachelorette party throughout the weekend, and I will be back with the highlights (and destination reveal) next week!
For now, let’s kick things off with this week’s edition of Friday Favorites. Below is what made me smile this week. As always, I invite you to share some things you have been loving at the bottom by utilizing the comments section and link up tool!
Friday Favorites #105: Week of 9/4
• Yes To Grapefruit daily facial scrub
Yes To is a natural line of paraben-free shampoos, conditioners, body butters, daily skin care, and lip balms. Every product is made with organic fruits and vegetables, and categorized into five different sub-brands: Carrots, Tomatoes, Blueberries, Cucumbers, and Grapefruit.
One of my favorite products I continue to buy (even years later) is the Yes To Grapefruit daily facial scrub. It has a gentle exfoliator that is soft enough to use on a daily basis. I keep it in my shower and use it as my main scrub every night! You can find it at Ulta or other major retailers like Target, CVS, Walgreens, etc.
• salad chopper
Chopped salads are where it’s at y’all. Scott completely agrees with me, so I was pumped when he brought this chop scoop tool home from the store a few months ago.
I don’t know why it took us so long to use it. You can chop your salad all together in a big serving bowl or even use it right in the bowls or containers of individual sized portions. I’m not positive where he got it from, but I would guess Meijer or Walmart, and you can find this Prepara green salad chopper online here and here.
It’s sharp enough to chop all of your vegetables, doesn’t chip your bowls or surfaces, and is super easy and convenient!
• the beginning of fall
As much as I want to hang onto the summer weather, I can’t help but to get a little excited to see the very beginning signs of fall. I saw this tree on one of my runs through the trails this week and had to stop and take a picture. Is that weird?
So I love fall foliage, and it might just be my favorite time of the year to be in Michigan.
I’m sure I’m not alone!
I have been diving face first into crafting this week in preparation for the weekend ahead!
I’ll give more details on what the final products turned out like next week. For now, all I can say is that I forgot how much I love to tie bows and use a glue gun. Haha! Please don’t make fun of me. Okay, fine… you can. I would too.
• these throwback ballet knit cover-ups
This one is totally random… but where my dancers at? You know you had these (or similar) pants to cover up your leotard and tights in ballet class at some point in your life.
I’m pretty sure these were purchased from a dance store and handed down to me, but you can find similar ones here.
Considering they are going on 15 years now, I should put them in my giveaway pile when I go through my closet, but I just can’t part with them. In an effort to justify keeping them, I have been wearing them around the house at night and can’t get enough of them. They’re so great!
• dippin’ veggie chips
Oh my gosh.
Have you guys ever seen Dippin’ Chips? Our friend Adam brought these Dippin’ Veggie (Kale, Carrot & Spinach) Chips over a few days ago and I am so addicted. He got this ginormous bag of them from Costco!
Since I’m not a Costco member, I might just order them in bulk online. The bags are now Non-GMO, gluten-free, and only use certified organic ingredients you can actually pronounce. What a great find!
• Big Brother
I wasn’t sure this season was going to be good, but I have to admit that I have been loving Big Brother this summer. I don’t watch many reality shows, but Big Brother is one I will always enjoy watching while pretending to play along at home.
Scott got me hooked on it about five seasons ago, and now I am ridiculously into it.
And how great is Zingbot?
To those who have been watching this season: are you on board with the Austwins (Austin and the twins)? I can’t believe no one has made a move to take them out yet! We shall see how the season unfolds…

• Friday funnies
Today I’m dedicating this entire section to BatDad Blake.
I can totally feel his wife’s pain with him constantly giving her a hard time. The videos with his kids are hilarious! (And Ben just might be my favorite.)
And THIS one. This video literally explains what it’s like to be (a victim of scares and entertainment) in my household, minus the mask and children. Although I’m sure both will arrive in due time…
You’re a(n annoyingly) funny one, BatDad. No matter how hard I fight it, I can’t stop laughing out loud every time I watch a video!
