It’s time for another Things I’m Loving Friday!!! Lots of things are making me smile this week, but below you will find a few highlights.
As always, please feel free to play along in the comments section!
Things I’m Loving Friday
- Old CDs
A week or so ago, I started digging through my old CDs looking for music to upload to my iPod to use in my group exercise classes. I unleashed a monster because now I cannot stop listening to throwback CDs I loved in high school. I used to listen to the Sister Act II soundtrack almost every morning while I got ready (“Oh Happy Day” is one of my all-time favorite songs) and I’ve been loving some of the mixed CDs my friends burned for me years ago. So many memories!!!
This winner came to me in my first Birchbox! I figured it would be just like any other Chap Stick, but it really does keep my lips feeling smooth and hydrated for so much longer than typical lip balm. I wish I had this baby with me when I was in NYC a few weeks ago!
My mom and I are 100 percent obsessed with this show. Thanks to Netflix we were able to marathon watch past seasons over the holidays. Each episode seems to have its own mini mystery and I’m such a fan!
- Family Recipes
I’ve fallen into the habit of making the same dishes for dinner over and over again and in an effort to bust out of my rut, I have a goal of attempting a new recipe twice a week. I’ve started going through our recipe box to test out family favorites and I’ve had a lot of fun trying recipes our family and friends sent to me over the years. Lots of delicious winners!
- Infinity Scarves
I cannot get enough of them! Infinity scarves are my go-to accessory during the winter months. So cozy! For those who asked about the above scarf a few times, I bought it a couple of years ago at the Banana Republic Outlet and cannot find it online anymore, but here are a few infinity scarves I found that I think are super cute: Banana Republic shaker stitch infinity scarf, Aldo calla knit infinity scarf (<—love the delicate look of this woven scarf!), Aldo classic gray infinity scarf, Old Navy honeycomb stich infinity scarf (<— Four color options – I love the cream – and you can save 15% on clearance by using the code ONSAVENOW)
I am so, so happy for my alma mater. The Knights took home a big victory on New Year’s Day at the Fiesta Bowl and since it sometimes feels like people only care about two colleges in Florida, I couldn’t help but feel extremely happy for this milestone for UCF. I remember attending football games when I was in college during the season when we went 0-11. We’ve come a long way and I am so proud!
