Friday Favorites

It's been a while since I've posted about some of my favorite things, so I figured WHY NOT?! Note: This is NOT a sponsored post - meaning everything that I found I have spent my own, hard-earned money on. Sometimes it's just fun to spread the word on new products you've been diggin', right?!

Brooks Heritage Line

I got a pair of shoes from the Brooks Heritage line for my birthday. They are pretty much my favorite shoes EVER! So, when I was ordering new running shoes from Brooks last week it's crazy how two more pairs from the Heritage line made their way into my cart (I thought the pair on the left reminded me of the RAD 80s and the pair on the right are sort of Michigan colors). I won't use these for running, but even still, I know they will RACK up the miles because I can see myself wearing them just about everywhere!

Planters NUTrition Protein Mix [Blueberry Nut]

I saw these on sale at the grocery store the last time I went so picked up a couple cans. I wasn't sure if I would like it, but knew the hubby loves blueberries and needed some "healthy" snacks for at his desk at work. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the mix. It has honey roasted peanuts, granola protein clusters, almonds, yogurt covered raisins and dried blueberries. [Note: The proper serving size is small and the total fat is high, but it is 'good' fat and much healthier than munching on chips or candy.]

Puppy Cuddles

Don't get me wrong, puppy cuddles have ALWAYS been my jam, but lately Walt has actually let me snuggle with him ;) In fact, this morning, Ryan left to go surfing around 7:30am, so I grabbed Walt from his crate and brought him into the bed to lounge for an hour or so. PURE BLISS! (Due to me giving blood yesterday, I rearranged my workouts for the week so today was a rest day AND I didn't have to work until 10am, so snuggle time was MANDATORY!)

New Jewelry

I have had my ears pierced since I was 6 months old (thanks madre!), so I guess you can say the piercing bug has been in me for almost my whole life... Well, last week I thought I would get my nose re-pierced (figuring I'd have to get the opposite side pierced). I went to the local piercing shop and the girl asked how long I had my nose pierced for. I told her probably 6+ years, but it had been at least another 6+ years that I've had out the jewelry. She said that the hole was still there and was able to just stretch it a little to get a stud back in there. AWESOMESAUCE (that means not having to pay for the piercing or deal with any of the healing!)!

Since then I decided I also wanted to switch up some of the earrings I've been wearing for years. Like, legit, I think the rings I have had in my rook and tragus have been there for at least 12 years. Amazon to the rescue! I ordered a heart ring for my rook (before I just had a tiny hoop) and some studs for my tragus (before I just had a horseshoe). I also grabbed some hoops for my nose, but will probably wait a couple more days to put them in.

Anything you've been diggin' on lately and are willing to spread the word about?

Those shoes are super cute! I've wanted a pair for a while but haven't gotten any, yet. That nut mix also looks fantastic. I'm heading to the store now and that will be making it into my basket!
