But before I get too ahead of myself, I want to take a moment to share my final Things I’m Loving Friday post of the year with you guys. Below you will find a short compilation of a few things that are making me smile this week. As always, I encourage you to join in the fun in the comments section of this post!
Happy New Year, my friends!!!
Things I’m Loving Friday
- Comfy + Casual Cut Out Shoulder Top
I bought the above cut-out-shoulder top on sale through Zulily in a deep teal and charcoal gray color and I’m so, so glad I ordered two because I have been living in these tops when I’m looking for something comfy and casual but a little more put-together looking than a hoodie and leggings. It’s only $24.99 and when I went to see if it’s still on Zulily to mention in this post, I ended up buying a third one in a deep purple/wine color. Ah! Zulily can be a little overwhelming (so many sales!) but you can find the tops by searching for the brand Love Kuza. I ordered a size up because I wanted a longer length and more relaxed fit and have been really happy with this top!
- Sleepy Sadie
Christmas wore Sadie out and that is saying something since – even at nearly nine years old – she is a bundle of constant energy. There’s something I absolutely love about our sweet sleepy dog when she’s absolutely exhausted and cuddling up with Sadie when she’s tired is just the best!
- Stocking Stuffers
As I was unpacking yesterday (yes, I’ve been majorly procrastinating getting my life back together after holiday travel) I started to sort through some of my Christmas gifts and realized that, yet again, the incredibly thoughtful stocking stuffers I received from Ryan and my family (and Santa!) were some of my favorite surprises this year. You can never go wrong with travel-size beauty favorites and comfy socks!
My dad eats grapefruit with his breakfast every morning and during our stay at my parents’ place over the holidays, I found myself enjoying the juicy fruit almost every day as well. I’ve kept up with my grapefruit love affair since we arrived home and cannot seem to get enough of the sweet and tart and oh-so-refreshing citrus fruit!
- Once Again Organic Almond Butter
If you love using almond butter in your smoothies or recipes, this almond butter is fantastic! The only ingredient in the butter is organic almonds and the flavor is perfectly toasted, simple and creamy. It’s a little runnier than the kind of almond butter I prefer to use on sandwiches but it’s perfect for dipping (I love it with pear slices!), smoothies and making various savory sauces.
- Friday Flashbacks
Top Workouts of 2015 (I’m planning to share my top workouts and recipes of 2016 on the blog in the coming week or two, but figured I’d highlight last years’ favorites before the new year as well!)
