Happy Friday! This week has been just one of those weeks. I've been feeling a little down, frustrated with myself and, not unhappy, but unhappy with myself, my body, etc. Does that make sense? It's just a funk, a mood, I know that and it will pass. But I know some good things must have happened so let's see what I can find for my Friday Favorites!
My new favorite coffee is this Starbucks Thanksgiving Blend. It's so yummy - dark roast with a hint of spices. It really is Thanksgiving in a cup! Someone posted a photo of it on Instagram a few weeks ago talking about how awesome it was, so I had to pick it up when I made it to a Starbucks. I should probably buy another one soon before they run out!
Speaking of coffee, how cute are the holiday cups at Caribou Coffee? I stopped there on Friday as I headed up to my parents for a little coffee treat to drink along the way and these holiday cups are incredibly cute!
I made my own homemade peanut butter this week. It's delicious!! I've never made homemade peanut butter before, but felt the urge to try it. I just used unsalted dry roasted peanuts, sea salt, a small amount of pure honey, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Yum! I can't taste the vanilla; I figured next time I'd try vanilla beans or vanilla bean paste for a vanilla peanut butter.
I finally ordered my half marathon sticker for my car. Yup, I'm one of those "annoying" runners who will have an oval sticker on the back of their car now. And guess what? I don't care! I'm proud of what I did, and I don't think it's bragging. I think it's just showing off my interests and lifestyle; showing that I'm a part of the running club of the world. Can't wait for it to come!
Last year for Christmas, my parents bought me a gorgeous white wool winter coat. I love it, but it's not exactly convenient for walking Mercedes, to wear as an extra layer for a run or casual errands. I had been wearing an old coat that I had, but by now it's HUGE on me. I figured it was probably time to find a new coat and I settled on this North Face. I had no plans of buying a North Face, but it was so cozy when I tried it on I couldn't resist. Plus, it's pink! I'm hoping it was a good choice!
Those are a few of my favorites from this past week. Hope you all had a wonderful week and can find things to be grateful for, even the small things!
It's been a quiet, uninspiring week so I only have one other post to check out:
