I’m sorry, are we already into the week of 9 something? When did that happen? The high number inevitably comes along with the month of September, I suppose.
Want me to really freak you out? Halloween is next month. Like… next month. I hope you’re ready for costumes and candy corn!
Anywho, today is Friday and we have plenty to celebrate. Ready for some Friday Favorites? Perfect. Go ahead and share yours in the comments and link up section at the bottom too!
Friday Favorites #53: Week of 9/5
• The Gifts of Imperfection
I am currently in the middle of reading The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown for a monthly book club I joined over the summer.
I am only a couple of chapters into it, but can already tell I am going to finish it with more of an enlightened heart and open mind. I love the author’s style of writing (she’s hilarious) and can relate to her on many levels!
• Lorna Jane sports bras + accessories
I recently received a haul from the kind folks at Lorna Jane Active and am delighted to share some of the pieces with you.
Aren’t these sports bras fabulous?
There are a few outfits I have been sporting, but for now I’ll highlight the accessories that have been brightening up my days.

Pop Stripe Supa Slim Headband
Please excuse my lack of makeup, overgrown eyebrows, and scrunched and thrown up in a messy bun hair. I will be fixing all of those things shortly.
• My Dad doing the ALS ice bucket challenge with his team.
Yup, that’s him on the left of middle. Tom. I just love him so much and will forever be proud of him and his dance moves on and off the court!
• homemade granola cereal
I have always enjoyed granola on top of yogurt, in pancakes, and even in smoothies, but I only tried it on it’s own as a cereal for the first time with my homemade roasted honey vanilla granola the other day. Here’s the recipe!
Loaded with chopped almonds and topped with fresh blueberries, this has certainly been a favorite breakfast this week.
• Adam Levine doing musical impressions on The Tonight Show.
That pretty (yet rugged) man will always hold a special place in my heart. So beautiful, so funny, so talented. Scroll down to see the full clip!
• wildflowers on the trail
It looks like Summer is in full bloom in Michigan. (Finally.)
As much as I run the trials around our neighborhood, I still stumble upon new colors and types of wildflowers every now and then.
I absolutely love it and never mind stopping to snap a photo. I guess the planted ones on the streets aren’t too shabby to look at either.
Please don’t take them away, cold weather!
• a return to the massage table
I have had a membership to Massage Envy since April and have been a total of two times, as of yesterday. Why? I honestly couldn’t tell you.
With a decent amount of credit towards my account, I cashed enough in to get a two hour massage yesterday! Boy was it needed. I almost felt bad scheduling that long of a session, but I was reassured that they happen all the time and it really helped get out the majority of the knots and kinks that have been building up.
I really need to make a point to get back on the scheduling regular massages train. It’s important and I already feel so much better!
• The Katy Perry Part of Me Movie
Okay. Don’t poke fun at me for wanting to watch this. I heard it was really good and shows her unexpected backstory with the triumph of her drive after going through a rough personal life.
The film shows how much hard work went into her first world tour and I think so highly of her after seeing how much she cares about her fans, especially in the meet and greets. She has such a creative mind and isn’t afraid to do her own thing. Gotta love that!
