Hello and Happy Friday! Friday is officially my favorite day of the week. I love the anticipation of the weekend and knowing two days full of fun (and hopefully some relaxation!) await. Ryan and I have a low-key weekend planned and I could not be more psyched. We are hoping to visit a pumpkin patch at some point, make a trip to IKEA for some frames for my gallery wall and hike with Sadie. Woop!
But now let’s dive right into my favorite post of the week: Things I’m Loving Friday! Below you will find a list of things that are making me smile. (Lots of fall-themed loves goin’ on this week!) As always, feel free to play along in the comments section of this post!
Things I’m Loving Friday
- Maple Water
I first tried maple water during my trip to the Outaouais Region of Canada last year and was pleasantly surprised to find myself loving the lightly sweet flavor. It is incredibly refreshing and I’m happy to see it’s becoming more and more prevalent in the United States. Yum!
- Fall Frozen Yogurt
When frozen yogurt places start offering fall-themed flavors and toppings, you know I have to take advantage! I actually felt slightly ridiculous when I went to pay for this cup of frozen yogurt this week because I was also wearing orange and black. Overkill???
- Fabletics Lima Capri + Omemee Tank
After reading about Fabletics on so many blogs (Hi Ashley!) and receiving a few comments from you guys about their workout apparel, I was awfully excited to receive an email from the company offering to send me a few pieces from their fall collection. So far I’ve had the chance to try the Lima capris and and the Omemee tank and I cannot say enough great things about both pieces. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post about my favorite workout pants, am really picky about my workout capris and leggings. They need to be thick enough and have enough compression to smooth my legs and disguise any lumps and bumps. They must stay up during my workouts, feel comfortable and not dig into my waist . The Lima capris meet all of my criteria and then some! They’ve been a staple in my barre workout wardrobe and I wear them lounging around the house and on long walks with Sadie, too. They come in a myriad of colors and I have my eye on the Cranberry Stripe pair!
Just a quick heads up for those who may be new to Fabletics like me: It can be a bit confusing when you first browse around the website! Fabletics is a little different from most workout apparel companies in that you can buy their clothes directly from the site or become a VIP member and receive a monthly workout outfit (skipping months whenever you want). You also get 50% off your first month’s outfit ($25 for capris + sports bra + tank!?) which is pretty awesome. Full disclosure: I have included my referral link above, which will earn me a small credit to the site (the same credit you’ll receive if you refer a friend as well). So far I am impressed and I’ve already ordered my first $25 outfit!
P.S. The pullover you see above was from my most recent Stitch Fix box and it’s officially the most comfortable pullover I own. LOVE it.
- Garfi, The Angriest Cat On The Internet
Also known as my new favorite cat on the internet. He cracks me up!
I first spotted this kettle corn at The Fresh Market a few weeks ago and left swimming in a pool of regret when I didn’t buy it. Well, yesterday I found myself back at Fresh Market after coaching Girls on the Run and didn’t make the same mistake again. I bought it and the entire bag was nearly devoured by me alone. I managed to save Ryan a cup of it (which took some serious willpower), so heed my warning: You will not be able to put this stuff down! If you love candy corn and kettle corn, you will love this stuff.
With Halloween on the horizon, I figured it was a good time to bring back this Spooky Circuit Workout! I did this workout at home this week (all you need is a set of dumbbells and some stairs or a *sturdy* chair/bench for the step ups) and it’s a sweaty one!

Thank you so much to so many of you for leaving such thoughtful comments on my blog post about switching up my skincare routine earlier this week.
