Who doesn’t love a walk on the beach?
Good morning ladies! Hope you all had a fabulous week, and have an even more fabulous weekend. If you recall last week I mentioned I was feeling under the weather. Good news is I’m feeling a little better, bad news is I’m still not back to my 100% self. I guess only time, hydration and lots of tea will heal me! I’m just happy I have my voice back; I can’t imagine what is was like to be Ariel in the Little Mermaid. Girl must of had it rough. OK, it’s Friday and that means it’s time for Friday Favorites. Here’s what I’ve been hootin’ and hollerin’ about this week!
Beach Walk: No, not actually walking on the beach (though that’s fun too), but rather the Yankee Candle scent. I know candles are typically a wintery thing, but I just couldn’t resist the fabulous sale Yankee Candle was having the other day at the mall- just $8 scored me a large, 22 oz. candle. And I must say, I am 100% happy with my purchase. Notes of salt water, ocean, tangerine and orange blossom make any day a sunny day at the beach. If your local Yankee Candle isn’t hosting a fab sale and you’re willing to pay a few extra bucks, you can purchase your own Beach Walk Jar Candle on Amazon here.
Blueberry Waffles: Usually I’m a fan of preparing my own meals from scratch, though I wasn’t always that way. I guess I just like the control and reassurance of knowing what exactly is going into my food. However, this week I’ve gotten a little lazy and bought myself some Van’s Gluten Free Blueberry Waffles. Made with whole grain brown rice and sweetened with fruit juice, these waffles have the perfect flavor and crispiness, and you don’t even have to feel guilty about eating them. I love that there aren’t a million ingredients in them, making them a good choice when you’re not in the mood for cooking yourself. Pair ‘em with fresh berries, Chobani yogurt, or simply eat as is.
Boating: I’ve been down in Connecticut for the past few days at my parent’s house (the house I grew up in) on the lake. Living in Boston, it’s hard to get away and escape to nature, serenity and country life. So I’ve been trying to take advantage of all I have here in my teeny tiny home in CT. You bet boating has been #1 on my list! Since I’m still getting over a cold, I’ve been lacking in the exercise realm lately. So the other day I decided to take the Kayak out for a stroll on the lake. It was a beautiful day and I had a blast, and the best part? My arms got a killer workout too!
