1. Early morning runs. Especially when it’s a perfectly cool & crisp 60 degrees, like it was this morning! After my Mom and I parted ways, I zipped off on a blissful 3 miler. No yapping dogs in sight. :)
2. Edible bowls, like the one containing the fruit & yogurt parfait I had for breakfast!
Oh Raspberry Chobani, I love you so!!!
How can 14g of creamy, thick, sweet protein NOT be on your list of favorite things?!
In the mix:
- 1/2 cantaloupe
- 1 Raspberry Chobani Greek Yogurt
- 1 banana (1/2 mixed in with the yogurt, 1/2 on top)
- Sliced almonds
MAN, I love this breakfast!
Cutting up cantaloupe is definitely NOT one of my favorite things, so being able to scoop it straight out of the rind with a spoon is perfect for me. :)
3. The combination of banana and raspberry. Honestly, this goes beyond favorite to LOVE.
4. Throwback lunches.
Such as one containing almond butter & homemade strawberry jam on 100% Whole Wheat EarthGrains bread,
crunchy baby carrots,
and a sweet & juicy peach!
I am still kicking myself for not buying a bushel from this one vendor at the Farmer’s Market two weeks ago, who had THE most ripe & luscious peaches I have ever tasted. They had arrived from Georgia a couple days prior to the market and for whatever reason, I didn’t buy any. The next week he was out of them, so I had to buy some from the store. Hopefully they’ll taste just as good!
All I’m missing is my Rainbow Brite lunch box. ;)
5. Girly Stuff.
Including Makeup Forever brand cosmetics. You guys actually turned me onto this brand when I asked for some foundation/powder recs and I just LOVE it! Actually I love it WITH the foundation brush. Without it, the makeup is just OK. With it, it’s unstoppable!
Aveeno Fig + Shea Butter body wash. If this was an ice cream, I’d swim in it – it smells sooo good! And it hydrates so well that I don’t need to panic about skipping my morning lotion if I’m in a rush.
Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Splash. I’ve been wearing this same scent since high school, and I adore it. Sweet & refreshing – I’ll never stray. :D
