Friday is here!!! WOOP! I am so ready for the weekend. We have lots of fun stuff on the agenda, which segues perfectly into the first bullet point I have for today’s Things I’m Loving Friday post!
Please feel free to play along and share something you’re loving in the comments section of this post! I always love reading about things that are making you smile.
Things I’m Loving Friday
I am running the 26.2 with Donna Breast Cancer Marathon Relay with Ryan, my dad, my sister and my sister’s fiancé this weekend. We are running in honor of my mom on Sunday and I am really excited! I am kicking off the marathon relay with the first spot on our relay team and will be running 6 miles. Time to round up my pink race-day outfit!
On occasion, when I blog about my favorite flavored coffees, a few of you will leave comments along the lines of, “I wish I could try a bunch of different coffee flavors, but I only have a Keurig.” We also only have a Keurig at our house, but I don’t buy K-Cups and brew whatever flavored coffee I am loving at the moment using my refillable K-Cup. It’s fabulous, more cost-effective and better for the environment, too!
- Adorable Animal Links
Pictures of adorable animals will never get old. Two super-cute links of note this week:
I think I need to submit this picture of Sadie at the vet to be included in the above roundup:
Can you tell she loves her vet!?
- Long Workout Leggings
I am 5’7’’ and while I realize this is not extremely tall, it’s tall enough to make the length of certain compression leggings feel too short. During my sister’s bachelorette party, I lent my pair of Old Navy compression leggings to Leslie’s friend Colleen who is 5’10’’. She was thrilled when she pulled them on and they were actually long enough to cover her whole leg. (I wear these workout leggings with sweaters and boots all the time. Shhh.) More favorite workout leggings: Moving Comfort Urban Gym Tight (I have them in “black space dye”) and the Reebok One Series Legging. (And for those who love cute workout gear as much as I do, how cute is this Moving Comfort tunic!? I saw it when I was looking for the link to the leggings I like and fell in love. It’s on my birthday wish list… for April.)
A few months ago, I tried kombucha (a fermented tea-based beverage) for the first time and was not a fan. I wrote about my experience on the blog, using eloquent descriptive words along the lines of “it tastes like armpit” or something of the sort. When the folks at Clearly Kombucha emailed me and encouraged me to try their kombucha, I told them I wasn’t a fan of kombucha and that the creepy slimy stuff in the drink gave me the heebie jeebies. They assured me that their kombucha didn’t have any of the phlegm-like stuff that creeped me out before and told me I should give kombucha another chance. (Many of you guys echoed similar sentiments!) Well, I’m glad I did because I am completely swayed. I’m not sure whether I picked a horrible flavor before or if a big sip of creepy slimy stuff is what turned me off to the drink in the past, but the two bottles of Clearly Kombucha I drank this week were so different. I liked that they weren’t overly sweet but just sweet enough to be palatable. I already placed an order on Amazon for more of the raspberry ginger kombucha to have around the house as a special treat!
