Good morning! I can’t believe Friday is already here, but hey, I’ll take it.
There aren’t too many plans on the radar for my weekend. (I can’t say the same for Scott!) I am looking forward to some much needed down time after work tomorrow, and I am sincerely hoping that all of this talk about a possible snow storm in our area is some kind of joke. I know it’s late-November, but I’m just not ready. Anyone with me?
Instead of bumming out about the rapid temperature drop, let’s roll into this week’s edition of Friday Favorites!
I always invite you guys to play along in the comments section, and if you’re looking for more faves to browse, make sure to check out the blogger link-up section at the bottom!
Friday Favorites #116: Week of 11/20
• Puffins (gluten-free) cereal
You know how some people say certain cereals are like crack in a box? That’s pretty much what’s going on here.
I love any type of Puffins cereal, really. My latest obsession is with the Multigrain flavor that also happen to be gluten-free. I could probably eat half a box in one sitting, but I won’t… this time.
several a few hefty handfuls for an afternoon snack yesterday, and they actually tasted better without the bowl of milk! I bet the Peanut Butter and Pumpkin flavors are dangerous.
• “xo” stud earrings
In fact, I wear them any time I don’t want to wear my diamond studs. I’ve gotten plenty of compliments on them, so I see these cute little letters sticking around in my earring rotation for quite a while. You can find them online here and in silver here.
• Nike Orive sneakers
I picked up these Nike Orive sneakers for a steal ($65) on a recent trip into JCPenney last month. (Some of you might remember me partnering them – and *pssst* the giveaway is still active!) Since then, I think I’ve worn one other pair of sneakers to the gym since then… once. They’re the perfect lightweight training shoe!
And speaking of giveaways, *Metro Detroit locals*: you can still enter to win a $150 gift card to pamper yourself at Salon Legato, too!
• Scrabble Electronic Catchphrase
If you haven’t played Catchphrase with your family or a group of friends yet, you’re truly missing out!
It is a timed game that challenges you to guess words and phrases in five different categories. It’s best to play with at least four or more people, and it gets intense. It’s a great family-friendly game to break out in any setting, and we play it pretty often!
• chopped salad kits
I don’t know where I’ve been , but I just discovered DOLE Chopped Salad Kits a couple of weeks ago. We’ve tried a few flavors, and now we’re hooked!
I usually don’t use the entire bag at once. I will occasionally, but most of the time I will layer my plate(s) with a bed of lettuce and add extra toppings to make the bag last a couple of days. What can I say, I like loading my salads!
I have also been loving burrito bowls, and the one you see below includes Spanish rice, black beans, shredded chicken, salsa, and the Southwest chopped salad kit topped in cheese.
• Cali turned lap cat
This might seem like a lame favorite to include, but it’s kind of a big deal that I captured a photo of Cali lying on my lap. While she loves to be pet and cuddled, for whatever reason, she’s never been one to jump up on our laps.
Aspen (our grey kitty) has been a lap cat since the day we brought them home!
They’re so funny…
Cali lets us hold her, Aspen does not. Aspen enjoys the extra attention when guests are over while Cali hides in our bedroom. They’re so different!
We can’t figure out exactly what happened, but for the first time ever, Cali has been jumping up onto our laps over the last couple of weeks and will even fall asleep there. I don’t know what took her six years, but we’re loving it!

• Friday funnies
(Does anyone else think the mid-season break until mid-February is a little excessive?)
Have a great weekend!
