Good morning, and a very Happy Friday to you!
I feel like I say this every week, but this one flew by. Anyone else? I’ve been busier than normal at the gym, so it’s been a little lighter with posts on the blog this week, too. Boo. I’ve really missed you guys, and I have every intention on resuming a normal posting schedule next week. But, for now, let’s stick to celebrating what happened this week!
On Fridays we like to talk Favorites. I enjoy seeing what you have been loving too, so please feel free to play along and join in on the comments section and link-up at the bottom!
Friday Favorites #85: Week of 4/17
• almond & almond milk coffee creamers
I have been continuously using and buying almond coffee creamers over the past several weeks.
Pictured above is the vanilla flavor from Silk, but I have also been loving So Delicious almond milk dairy-free creamers. Both brands are Non-GMO and can be found in your local grocery stores. Almonds + Milk + Coffee Creamer = <3.
• beauty counter concealer pen
I introduced my new love for Beauty Counter last week. It’s a completely natural skin care and makeup line that steers away from using any chemicals, and I have been extremely happy with everything I’ve tried so far.
Use it alone or with foundation to cover redness, dark circles, and trouble spots on your skin like blemishes. The click-pen and brush applicator makes it easy to apply the perfect amount, even on the go. I ordered the Light shade for my winter-kissed skin, and I haven’t been able to put it down. It’s a fabulous product!
• any position memory foam pillow
Scott brought this pillow home from the chiropractor’s office at least six months ago, and both of us fight over using it every night.
You can unzip the cover and throw it in to wash with your regular sheets any time you change them. I don’t necessarily sleep with it under my neck, but it sure is comfortable while I read or type on my laptop at night. We should definitely invest in another!
Any sherbet fans in the house?
Scott picked up two containers of Purple Cow sherbet this week: lemonberry twist and rainbow, because, you know, we needed both. Naturally, we mixed the two flavors (<- fantastic choice), and digging my spoon into a scoop of rainbow sherbet will always take me right back to my childhood. It was always in our freezer growing up, and will continue to be an after dinner treat I enjoy for decades to come!
• Van’s gluten free sides
The kind folks over at Van’s sent me their new(er) boxes of pasta sides to try forever ago, and I finally got around to breaking one open last night.
Wanting to turn the side into an entrée for two, I added ground turkey meat to the Creamy Herb & Garlic pasta and it was a tasty success!
Any gluten free pasta that gets husband approved around here has to be a great product, and I am happy to report that Scott loved it!
• vitamin C gummies
I realize that the gummy version of vitamins may not be as healthy as regular supplements in the form of a powdered capsule, but gosh, some gummy vitamins are just so dang delicious. These vitamin C gummies I received from the Vitamin Shoppe are no exception!
Since I take a multivitamin every day, I don’t think to take other specific vitamins every day. I will, however, chomp on a couple of these to help keep my immune system on its game as we transition into the spring and summer. A little extra dose of Vitamin C sliced nutrients never hurt anyone!
• Aspen’s face planting slash snuggling
I seriously can’t handle the cuteness sometimes.
I’ve mentioned that all three of our pets are massive snugglers on the blog many times. What I don’t always highlight, however, is the funny positions they get themselves into in order to ensure the most comfort.
Aspen will find her way onto one of our laps any time we are sitting or laying down, and her favorite go-to move has been to face plant into our chests or stomachs lately. I love her for it. She’s freaking hilarious.

Gets me every time!
