Friday Favorites #4

27 Dec

Happy Friday! With the holiday spirit all around us, so many things are filling our lives with joy lately! Here are some of the things that are making our lives extra special these past few days.

Buddha Bowls.

These bowls are perfect and rest naturally in the palm of your hand. They are pretty much perfect for eating just about anything out of them. We love to use them for yogurt, oatmeal, and soup!

Pink Sea Salt.

A couple month ago we snagged this container of pink sea salt at TJ Maxx and are in love. Just a dash on top of anything takes a dish from great to amazing.

XL Containers of Almond Butter.

We love MaraNatha’s almond butter and were pretty disappointed when we went to pick up a container at our local Cosco not once, but twice, and found out they were out of stock both times! When they finally got back in stock we picked up two just to make sure we would be okay for a few weeks or so. We love almond butter and for $7 a container, you can’t beat Cosco’s price anywhere!

Vanilla Almond Hand Lotion.

We opened these fabulous hand lotions from Anthropology on Christmas morning and are already obsessed. The aroma is to die for and the lotion makes our hands super smooth.

Aroma Professional Rice Cooker.

We’ve been eyeing rice cookers for a while now and were ecstatic to open one on Christmas morning from our step siblings. We haven’t used it yet but were excited to try large batches of brown rice, bulgur wheat, quinoa, and oatmeal!

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We’re heading out to the mall this afternoon to do some after Christmas shopping! We hope we find some good deals. This weekend we’re planning on trying out our new rice cooker. Does anyone have any rice cooker tips for us?

Happy Friday Everyone!

We are so happy it is Friday! Of course our plans for the weekend involve working but we still have a few fun activities planned including a Fathers Day breakfast with our family on Saturday morning at a quaint local place in Mt. Gretna. Fathers day is definitely not a fun day for us. It is one of those days where we are jealous of every single person who actually gets to hug their father. Do us a favor and give your dad an extra hug on Sunday and let him know just how much he means to you! We know we would if we could. Love you daddy.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend! Here are a few of our Friday Favorites and things we are loving lately!

Favorite person: Our friend, Rebecca Myers! These are some of the photos we took with her last week. Look how amazing these turned out! She is such a talented photographer.

Favorite bite: Kirkland’s plain Greek yogurt! 1 cup has 24 grams of protein and the ingredients list is down to a minimum. That’s what we like to see and we have been enjoying it all week for breakfast!

Favorite pastime: Spending time with friends! With everything that has happened in our lives, we know one thing is for sure. Never have any regrets, and live life to the fullest. Best friend time has been maximized lately! It’s important they know how much they mean to us.

Favorite home: Our garden. It is growing at full speed and soon our radishes will be ready. We already have gotten the first few grape tomatoes and mixed greens.

Favorite heathy dinner in 5: Amy’s Lentil Soup. The ingredients list is minimal and they are very tasty! As much as we love making our own soup sometimes grabbing one of these is all that we have time for. There are no excuses, you can still eat healthy with a busy schedule!

Favorite fur ball: Miss Luna gets cuter and cuter everyday. We never thought we’d become one of those kitten picturing posting momma’s but we are a little obsessed, we apologize. She’s just so cute we can’t resist sharing.

Favorite activity: Our mother, daughter, grandma date at The Hershey Pantry on Wednesday. The grilled caprese-style chicken salad was amazing.

Favorite mmm: Banana Oat Bread. We’ve been looking for a new recipe to make for an upcoming family get together and this just might be it.

Favorite sandwich: Feta-stuffed turkey burgers. Need we say more?

Favorite find: This chart that tells you which vegetables are in season at certain times of the year. Buying vegetables that are in-season is a great way to save money!
