Posting twice in one day? Who am I? I know I hopped on here already this morning, but I kind of missed checking in with a Friday Favorites post. I love to randomly discuss things I’m diggin’, but this one is especially exciting because it includes a giveaway at the end! I hate putting off giveaways, because they are so much fun. Y’all put up with a lot from me, so it’s nice to add little bonuses here and there.
Blueberry Muffin Coffee
I really have no words to describe how much I love waking up to this in the mornings. I mean, it tastes and smells exactly like blueberry muffins. Shocking, right? I always thought skipping creamer was freaking nuts, but I could possibly see how I could get away with that with this coffee. It’s delicious. I will warn you, though. If you don’t have a sweet tooth, this will probably not appeal to you. Just saying. I have the palate of a five year old. Sugary? Yes, please.
I’m almost ashamed at how much I enjoy this show. It may have something to do with the fact that we just got actual channels on our TV, though. The bar is set pretty low. Anyway, the fact that it’s kids with fish bodies is pretty strange, but those fish kids can jam. I’m pretty pleased with myself for learning the songs so quickly. I also get their jokes sometimes, so it makes me feel intelligent.
Today was my last Friday before going back to work. We celebrated with French Toast, the best breakfast food around. I barely fit at M’s table, but I’d say being able to dine with a toddler and a stuffed dog is worth the trouble. PS: That dog is “Baby” and he “poopoos” everywhere. Those are the kid’s words, not mine. Are all kids obsessed with talking like that, or is it just mine?
Mason Jar Salads
Kinda hard to segue from my last statement back into food, but I am obsessed with mason jar salads now. I made a bunch of them on Monday and we ate them throughout the week. I don’t have a specific recipe for either of these, but the premise is layering wet to dry from the bottom up. Simple, right? I will say that these are in the permanent packed lunch rotation now. They really do last all week. I was shocked.
Last but not least, I have continued to work on my hydrating this week. I’m really getting better, I swear. Recently Nuun reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try some of their products. I’ve already used the regular Nuun and love it, so I asked to test drive the new Nuun Energy. It’s the same amazing hydration tablet with added caffeine and b vitamins. There is still no added sugar or other junk. I was 100% already on board with it, and then the taste tipped me over to 101%. I love, love, love the Cherry Limeade flavor. It’s light, refreshing, and just the right amount of fizzy. If you are a habitual afternoon soda drinker, this would be a rocking replacement. I encourage you to make the switch! I started replacing my afternoon coffee with it and it wasn’t too hard to adjust. 😉
And now for your chance to try it out. One lucky reader will win Nuun Energy tablets and a Nuun branded water bottle. The giveaway will run from 8/8 until midnight on 8/14. A winner will be announced the following day. Good luck!
And now, I’m off to unplug for a bit. See you guys Monday, and have a great weekend!
