Welp, it’s five hours past the time I was hoping today’s post went live. Cool.
While I had every intention on posting this morning, it got away from me and before I knew it I was out the door for my hair appointment across town. As I was on my way home from the salon, I got a call from Scott and decided to help him and HOOPER out with a last minute appearance at a high school Homecoming parade. Remember those?
Seeing the Homecoming court couples drive by in convertibles brought me right back to high school. Although I was never nominated for Homecoming Queen, I always went to the football games and dances. While in line for the start of the parade, I noticed a Freshman ’17 banner and wish I could have documented my own reaction to it. Are we really already almost to the Class of ’20? I remember being in high school when the Class of ’00 rolled around. Where the <bleep> did the past thirteen years go? Yikes!
Anyways, that was my Friday. I just got home a few minutes ago and since I had already planned on sharing another week of favorites with you, I’m going with the better late than never theory here. Let’s roll!
Friday Favorites #6: Week of 10/11
• Zesty Ranch Veggie Straws
I have an undeniable infatuation with chips ya’ll. While I also have a strong love affair with (mostly dark) chocolate, I would down an entire bag of kettle cooked Salt ‘n Vinegar chips over a brownie sundae any day. It’s a true weakness of mine and is something I will never give up, just like coffee.
I’m sure the sodium levels are not ideal here, but I’m just going to look past that and share how giddy I became when I saw these bags pop up in the arena vending machine this week.
Yes… you read it right. Sensible Portions Veggie Straws in a Zesty Ranch flavor. Sorry I’m not sorry for eating that entire bag in about five seconds.
• Days Without Makeup
Since we are back in season, I will now be required to be “done up” majority of the time. Taking a break from the lashes and lipstick, I took full advantage of a make-up free day today.
I took this picture right after getting my hair done (again… but it’s finally the right shade my team has been asking for the entire summer!) and felt the best I have in a while, au natural. Now if I could only learn to blow out and style my hair like my hairdresser, I’d be golden.
• Dancing On Court Again
Speaking of being back in season, this obviously means I get to dance on court again which makes me very happy!
Since I am unsure about plans for the next season, I am enjoying my time dancing this year and am soaking in every second possible!
• Girl Time
Girl time goes hand-in-hand with court time. There are some weeks throughout the season where I will see the same group of girls every single day, so they kind of become a second family.
Although I am starting to drag my heels a little (wake up, Heather… there’s another birthday to celebrate tonight), I am thoroughly enjoying getting to spend so much time with the girls again.
• Subway Chopped Salads
I know I have mentioned this on the blog… or at least on my social media channels before, but I have become an avid fan of Subway chopped salads.
I have always been the girl to spend five minutes chopping up my own salad once I get it before I even take the first bite. I like loaded salads, but I like everything to be cut up into small pieces and mixed together so each bite is equally as savory. I normally get turkey, but have been turning to the plain chicken breasts (<- double meat!) instead this week. My favorite way to order is with every vegetable possible and oil and vinegar as the dressing. YUM.
• Crunchy Fall Leaves
If there’s one thing about Michigan I can’t get enough of, it’s the fall. I LOVE hearing the sound of leaves crunching when I walk through them too. Is that weird?
As the weather gets chillier, I have found myself getting outside more and more. One of these days, Scott and I will fix up our broken bikes to take advantage of it and go for a trail ride. Hopefully sooner than later!
• Violet Love headbands
Oh yeah, I’m also hosting a giveaway for you to win a pair of fun printed bands for yourself! Make sure to enter if you haven’t done so already.
Considering it is now past 9 p.m. and I have a birthday celebration to get out to, I guess that wraps up this week’s highlights. I hope you have a great rest of your night and I’ll see ya tomorrow! 😀
What are some of your favorite finds this week?
