Friday Favorites #22: Week of 1/31

Hey, hey everybody! I’m coming to you bright and early this week, finally.

I swear. Getting up early is getting harder and harder for me to do naturally. Am I just getting older? Or am I falling back into my teen years? Whatever it is, I hope the phase passes quickly. I really do enjoy my quiet, productive mornings!

Anyways, this week was filled with favorites. I’m going to stray from the normal I love the snow but hate the cold themed #FFavorites posts I have been turning to lately to keep this one on the up and up with happy thoughts. Because it’s Friday, and that’s reason enough.

Am I right, or am I right?

Friday Favorites #22: Week of 1/31

Don’t forget to join in on the party by linking up and/or telling me some of yours in the comments section at the end!

• “I Love You” Foldover Clutch

Just in time for Valentines Day, Hearts came out with this adorable red leather clutch.

Hearts Red Leather I Love You Clutch

I own (and love) a similar denim and leather purse and think the pop of this red color adds so much fun to the clutch version! Also, the message on the inside just gives me the warm fuzzies.

Hearts I Love You Clutch inside

Just in case you haven’t heard of them, Hearts is an ethical fashion accessories company that does so much more than supply cute products. They promote positive product values and support important world changes in hopes of creating a movement. Why?

“To change the way products are designed, created and sold. To change the way people buy. To help people realize that they have the power to stimulate a shift by changing the way they spend their money.”

I heart Hearts.

If you have the urge to browse their website (tons of unique and fashionable items to pick from!) don’t forget to get 30% OFF any regularly priced items by using the promo code HOUSEWIFE30 upon checkout!

• new protein bar flavor

While aimlessly perusing the health and beauty aisle at the grocery store (c’mon… we all do that), I came across the Zone Perfect protein bars and noticed a brand new-to-me flavor pop out!

(Please ignore the over-stuffed giant dance bag and locker room mess in the background.)

I loved the fruity flavor of the Blueberry Pomegranate bar. A definite new fav I will continue to rotate in my pantry!

• Pistons on New Girl

I’m seriously obsessed with this show and now I finally have a reason!

Jess from New Girl in Pistons shirt


I realize I am a few weeks late posting about this particular episode, but it’s still so, so great to me.

Jess becomes a Detroit Pistons fan in order to bond with their roommate, Coach. The Pistons just so happen to be the rival team of her boyfriend, Nick’s, favorite team, the Chicago Bulls. They have several stand-offs throughout the episode, but this might be the best clip.

Plus, the episode is titled “Basketsballs.” Because that’s what Jess calls the sport. Because, technically, “there are two baskets.”

Plus, Jess is wearing a sweater with black horses on it. Subliminal shout out to HOOPER? I still can’t bring myself to delete it from my DVR. (Go Pistons!)

• Saying YES in 2014

With a little encouragement from my friends over at Yes To, I am joining the #YESTOMOVEMENT to say YES to the little moments this year. Some ideas (small, big, and everywhere in between) include:

Yes To Momoment Ideas #YESTOMOVEMENT

All of those things would do nothing but produce great moods! I love it. If you are on board for saying YES, sign up to win free stuff, share it on your social media pages, and use the hashtag #YESTOMOVEMENT to see your moment pop up on their website!

Pretty neat! :)

Wherever we go, whatever we do, there they are.

Points one, two and three.

#5 and #9 made me literally laugh out loud, #18 is Aspen 100%, and #39 is still freaking me out.

• the return of monster salads

Finally. I’ve gotten the motivation to go nuts with the veggie drawer and create obnoxiously large and colorful salads again.

monster salad with beans and olives

This one started with a spring and baby spinach mix. Layered on top is grape tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, green olives, chick peas, and leftover black and chili beans from Scott’s turkey chili. I drizzled it with plain balsamic vinegar and finished it off with a few twists of ground pepper.

Hopefully the inspiration has now been passed on to you!

and to leave you with a laugh…

Still dying. Happy Friday!
