Friday Favorites

Friday, September 11, 2015

It has been so long since I have done a Friday Favorites post! I love doing this post, I love finding something during the week that I love and knowing I want to share it with you all! This week was no exception. I found a product that has blown me away and I don't know if I am late to the party here, but Cookie Butter is my new favorite thing of all time! 

#1 - Cookie Butter

Seriously, you must go right now and buy this (I got mine at Trader Joe's). Then come home grab one scoop to try it, and melt another spoonful in the microwave and drizzle it over an apple or pretzels and then come back and thank me! You will not be disappointed! 

My second favorite this week is being back into routine. I love summer, but I love a good routine even more! 

#2 - Routine

The kiddos went back to school this week and along with that comes a daily routine that I really enjoy! As much as I love the freedom and spontaneity of summer, there is just something about knowing exactly what I am doing each day that I like! The kids go to bed earlier which means I go to bed earlier and everyone is much more least we will be once we get into the groove! Just in case you missed them earlier in the week, these are the kiddos first days of school! 

My kids are my favorite, back to school time is my favorite, but two things that have not been my favorite this week are...
  1. Owen came home not feeling well yesterday and by evening I was pretty convinced he has strep. Poor buddy will have his first sick day on the 4th day of school. I don't know that he minds missing a day of school as he is already trying to convince me that going to school every other day would be a much better plan! We will be off to the doctor today and then there will be lots of snuggles and movie watching happening in this house! Gotta love back to school germs #notreally
  2. The HEAT. Seriously, 90 degrees and humid. It is killing me. It wasn't even this hot in the summer here. As far as I am concerned it is fall as of September 1st and mother nature is really putting a cramp in my style. I have not been able to get myself to decorate for fall because I am sweating in my house, it does not feel like fall when I am sweating! And the Pumpkin Spice Latte is out and I will not buy one. I will not buy one until it is a nice cool day where I can enjoy my hot beverage, I can't even think about drinking a hot beverage right now. It has been so hot I have been drinking my tea cold. And the poor kids are roasting in school. I know I will hate when I am freezing, but a nice 65-70 degrees and breezy would be perfect! 
Next week I am hoping it cools down and then you will find me doing one of my very favorite things...

#3 - Decorating for Fall

You can check out how the house looked last year, here! I linked up with Andrea for Favorites under $10 and showed how I decorated for Fall on a budget

Well it feels good to be back! Next week I will let you know my meal plan, what I am eating on a typical day, fill you in on my weigh in and Fitbit and hopefully I will find some more favorites for you! Any good plans this weekend?? Have a great time and see you on Monday!

  1. Hate that Owen is sick, but strep is going around here, too! Love your fall decor!

    1. Thanks! The pics are from last year, I can't wait to pull everything out this year!

  2. I love the Trader Joe's cookie butter!! And I'm sorry about the strep, yuck. I had that at the end of last year, but the doctor at first told em I didn't because the rapid strep test had come back negative... ugh. I lived with strep for two weeks straight and was in SO much pain!

    1. Oh my gosh Justine, strep is the worst, that must have been horrible. He did test positive today so hopefully he will feel better tomorrow! I am hoping it doesn't spread through the family. I still seem to get strep every year.

  3. Oh my gosh, I love cookie butter! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  4. I hope your little boy feels better soon! I know how horrible that feels! I had it alot as a child and was always miserable!

  5. Hello Sandy,

    I am so in love with Trader Joe's. They have so many wonderful products there. I haven't tried the cookie butter yet, but I have heard many good things about it. I am also like you in the fact that I love routine. I like having my morning workouts and I like my schedule. My days don't feel as productive if I am not in my routine. I cannot wait to have my own house to decorate for fall. Right now I am in grad school and am living in an apartment. I love the set up of your tv and the stand. If you have time, I would love for you to check out my blog as well. I have posted some healthy fall recipes as well:

    xoxo Tori
