Friday Favorites: I’m Baaaack

Well, I fell off the face of the Earth this week. Except not really. This week, I was glued to my couch. I had a terrible sinus infection that moved into my chest and I had a fever. #goodtimes


Being sick when you’re an adult is no fun at all. I felt like a baby! Ha! Last week, I lost my voice and thought I just had a really bad cold…but after working all week and going to the gym all week, my body shut down. Still, I was like, oh a fever, no big deal…and I didn’t take my sorry self to the doctor until Monday, which thankfully was a day off from school. I love Christopher Columbus. 😉 My doctor put me on two antibiotics and told me to take Tuesday off work. Now let’s just throw it out there that teachers in general do not like to miss school because it’s more work than actually GOING to school…but for a first year teacher, especially after a long weekend. Sigh. I was still feeling so sick that I had to listen to her! So my week has been nice and short, although I’m never upset to see another Friday come around! Especially since I have been giving standardized tests every day this week. LIFE IS FUN!


I have been a coffee drinker for only two years now, and I always say that I don’t have a favorite kind of coffee and I don’t “need” coffee. Well, I think I have now decided my favorite flavor is actually Hazelnut and my occasional morning headache would beg to differ with the idea that I don’t “need” this warm beverage. 🙂


Ice cream is my favorite…this Pumpkin Pie flavor has graham cracker in it. I was sold. It is not too “pumpkin-y”, but it is perfectly delicious. 🙂


I got new leggings at Lululemon. They were on clearance and I’m a fitness instructor so double discount for me! #win These are my favorite because I LOVE this green color, they sit in a great place on my waist, and they have pockets. Oh, yes. I have been looking for a pair with pockets like these and I was so excited to finally find them! Then of course I saw a coworker wearing workout leggings with similar pockets today and she bought hers at Target. Of course!


Surprise pocket!


The little things are my favorite. Like noticing sidewalk art on my way to a Spin class…


…reading chalkboard handwriting at a new-to-me coffee shop…


…and eating Quest bars from friends. 🙂 Have you tried the Pumpkin Pie flavor yet? It is a coated bar, so it is definitely different than any other Quest bar I have had before!


I love when I think I’m a baby genius when in fact, my idea is not so great. A caramel apple with Reese’s Pieces is my favorite kind of candy apple. I bought it at the pumpkin patch last weekend and it was sitting in my kitchen looking ready to be snacked on, so instead of holding it by the stick and taking a big ol’ bite, I decided to slice it nicely! What a great idea!


No. The apple cutter broke (it’s 4 years old anyway) and the apple wasn’t even that good. #derp 


This was on Facebook and it made me literally laugh out loud because it is so true. Happy Friday!

  1. That sucks about the fever & the apple cutter! I have to cut up apples because one of my front teeth is bonded. While I have apple cutters, I’ve taken to just using a knife.

    Fevers totally knock me out, even just an elevated temp (mine runs low normally) just wipes me out. That’s when it’s time to binge watch on Netflix. I got through 3 seasons of Scandal that way this year!

    We now have a lululemon & I’m all about leggings/capris with pockets, although I’m planning a Target trip today so I’ll have to start there. 🙂 I do like the Athleta capris with pockets I bought (even if I didn’t end up wearing them at my race, but it was cold enough I probably should’ve).

    Hope you feel a lot better next week!

  2. Ugh. Sinus infections suck.

    OMG. So in college my roommate thought those apple cutters were God’s gift to the kitchen, so she tried to use it one just about everything and of course is broke after just a year. LOL.

  3. Hahaha that Folger’s thing is gold. Glad you’re feeling better! And those workout crops are amazing! I want some with pockets like that too, and preferably a fun print. 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. HAHA at you breaking your apple slicer. I love those LEGGINGS and I tried the pumpkin pie Quest and I can’t really say I’m a fan (Shock! Am I really a white girl?!). I think it’s the coated part that I don’t like. But I love that little coffee joint. Sorry my comment is rambling and out of order. It’s driving me crazy too HAPPY FRIDAY FEEL BETTER XOXO
