Happy Friday!! I have a feeling this weekend is going to fly, but I’m still looking forward to it. By tomorrow afternoon I will be certified in CPR, so that’s pretty cool.
How was your week? Mine was good. Chilly, but good. Let’s just not talk about the projected weather today and tomorrow… (low of 43? Really, MI?) I’m just not ready.
Instead of dragging that subject out, let’s focus on the fun stuff, like everything that made me smile this week. It’s time for another edition of Friday Favorites! I love to hear what you have been loving too, so feel free to play along in the comments section and/or even link up at the bottom!
Friday Favorites #54: Week of 9/12
• autumn scents and candles
This is totally predictable, I know. I knowww. Regardless, I have been all about the fall scents this week!
I am pretty sure I spent a solid half an hour in Bath & Body Works on Monday trying to decide which scents are the best. The answer? None of them. They are all fantastic!
After going back and forth on the autumn line (and passing over the HUGE pumpkin line of flavors… that was hard) I finally decided on the Leaves refills for our wall flowers. The scent screams warm fall fuzzies and I think the printed leaves on the outside are adorable.
Paired with this Autumn Sky candle in our kitchen, our house smells pretty great right now!
Now I just have to be patient for the beautiful fall foliage to arrive. I saw signs of a change in leave colors yesterday and know it will be here soon!
• Panera Bread hazelnut creme coffee
• This If Disney Princes Were Real video via Buzzfeed
Because every now and then we need a dose of reality when it comes to true love and how to find it.
HILARIOUS, and I’m pretty sure Ariel is rocking a version of my glasses.
• how to deal with foot cramps via FitSugar
I have gotten some horrible ones in the past, especially while I’m in training mode. Great tips!
• Chipotle salads
I know I have mentioned my love for Chipotle on the blog several times, but have you ever tried their salads?
That’s the only menu item I have ordered over the past couple of years. Personally, I like to load it up with rice and beans, add fajita veggies, and skip the dressing. You don’t need it with the salsa (or three that I get).
Earlier this week, my friend Alex and I both enjoyed a loaded salad with a side of guacamole and chips. SO good!
Oh my gosh, YES. To all of those! (Take note fellas.)
• Lorna Jane Activewear
I shared these adorable Lorna Jane sports bras with you last week and have two equally exciting outfits to highlight this week!
I love the mesh on the back of the tights, and the ballerina in me likes that it kind of looks like I am wearing a leotard with the pattern of the tank.
I wore the outfit (without the bra) to Fitness Pilates class last week and had Scott snap a few photos. He only agreed if I did “cool poses”. Ha! I’m not quite sure the one on the right qualifies.
I wasn’t too sure about the pants at first. I liked the pattern but didn’t think I would be sporting them to any kind of workout class. Come to find out, they have a pair of built in shorts inside and are so, so comfortable.
I’ve already worn them around town to run errands, to the movies, and at home whenever they’re clean. I bet they would be perfect for a dance class and cute to rock on a long day of travel!
• open windows
While I’m not sure I am fully ready for cool weather to roll in just yet, we did take advantage of the mid-50 degree weather over the past couple of days by turning off our air conditioning and opening the windows.
I love, love, love being home by an open window when the weather is just right. It’s so calming.

Because this will for sure be my life one day. <3
… unless somehow Scott pick’s up some swag. Then it might look a little something like this. Ehh… maybe we’ll just stick to the creepy plastic horse head. 😉
Have a wonderful weekend! xo
