Good Morning! Do you ever have the kind where you wake up way past your alarm… stressed and worried you missed something important? I’ve done it a number of times but can usually pull it off by getting out the door before anybody notices. Today, not so much.
Apparently I slept through my alarm today and according to my husband got up and turned off the second one without any recollection of doing so. I have some serious issues waking up these days, ya’ll!
Anyways, I apologize for the delay this morning, but fear not… here is this week’s installment of Friday Favorites with a #FFavorites link up at the end!
Friday Favorites #11: Week of 11/15
• poof dish sponge + soap holder
I found this adorable dish washing sponge on my latest grocery run at Meijer. I’ve never seen a poof cleaner before!
While we’re at it, I have also been loving this soap holder I purchased at Bath & Body Works months and months ago. The shell adds a little decorative flair to your average kitchen soap and can replace the scent with whatever you’d like from season to season.
Never thought I would be so excited about cleaning products.
• clean throw pillows and blankets
Speaking of cleaning things, I am currently on a crazy kick of cleaning throw pillows and blankets in the house this week. I guess you can say I have been on a mission to get rid of as much cat hair as possible.
I have been nervous about throwing some of them into the washing machine, but figured after two years of having them it’s time. Lucky for me these Pier 1 down pillows didn’t ruin one bit on the extra delicate cycle!

• Fiber One 80 calories chocolate cereal
I even enjoyed a bowl with light chocolate almond milk for dessert last night. A chocolate fiend I am.
• cherishing the last of the fall colors
With temperatures dropping down to the low thirties this week (yikes!) I am taking in any remaining fall colors I pass on my drive around town. Sadly these trees are becoming more and more bare by the day and that might be breaking my heart a little.
Don’t be a stranger just yet, fall!
• first snow fall of the season
With those low temperatures came our very first snow fall of the season Monday! See what I meant about the trees?
They’re still beautiful and look even more magical with a fresh coat of white snow, which I guess is kind of cool to see. Secretly (or not so secretly) I am keeping my fingers crossed that the next snow fall holds of for another month or so.
• this adorable little snow bunny nugget
I don’t even know if I can’t handle the cuteness on this one.
• surprises in the mail
Perfect timing for the cold weather, right?
• this article with tips on how to stay fit during the holidays via Greatist.
(Because new northerners like me need tips on how to have fun outside when it’s snowing.)
• and then there’s this one
Seriously. Try not to laugh. This is why I love her (besides for the awesome blog she runs!)
No matter how much I complain about the cold weather, I haven’t lost my craving for a cold smoothie snack or meal yet.
(In my smoothie above: fresh strawberries, frozen peaches, spinach, 1 scoop whey protein powder, almond milk.)
Granted, I work from home and enjoy them mostly in the mornings or afternoons, so I am not exactly taking them with me out into the cold. But for now, I am still loving them!
And I think that’s it for now. I don’t want to babble too long without getting to the link up. Here you go, friends!
