My Favorite Things

It’s been a while since I’ve shared some of my “favorite things”, so I figured this Friday was PERFECT timing to share a few more…

Choosing a Word Every Day

I wrote about this concept on Monday, and it’s amazing how it’s changing my days…

Life Lessons: Choose Your Word | No Thanks to Cake

I love, love, LOVE choosing a word every day to be my guiding light.  So far, it’s worked amazingly… and I love that so many of you have been adopting it as well!  So fun!

Skinny Pop Popcorn

This summer, I REALLY got into popcorn.  My girl Tiffany talked me into trying a few varieties at our favorite grocery store, and I was quickly picking up popcorn every single week.  And, this brand has become my new favorite…

What I love most about SkinnyPop is that it comes in individual-sized servings.  Portion control is one of the things I struggle with… so when a snack comes ready to go, I’m in!  Also, the flavor is AWESOME!  The mini-bags have 100 calories per serving, and it’s a NICE serving.  Try this popcorn… you won’t be sorry!

Subway Sriracha Chicken Sandwich

Holy Hannah!  I feel like Subway keeps inventing sandwiches just for me… and this one is NO EXCEPTION!

Let me warn you briefly… this sauce is SPICY!  If you’re a little nervous about spiciness… get the sauce on the side, or have them go light on the sauce.  When I’ve eaten this, my mouth burned for at least 10 minutes after… in the best possible way.  If you like spicy buffalo, you’re going to like this one BIG TIME!

Kelly’s New Album – Wrapped in Red

When I heard that my girl Kelly had a new Christmas album coming out, I knew that I had to buy it.  I’m not a huge fan of Christmas music, but I’ve been listening to it for a few weeks now… and I love it!

And.. she has a Christmas special coming to TV in December!  You know I’ll be watching!!  What’s crazy is that she taped the show just two days after I left Las Vegas a few weeks ago.

At least I got a quick pic before I left… and I’ll be watching from home when it airs!

Favorite song?  Favorite Things (a la Sound of Music)… So great!  Check it out!

Ab Work

Yeah… I don’t even believe that I’m writing this either.  No, my blog hasn’t been hijacked…

I’m loving the core work we’re doing at yoga these days.  It’s like my instructors know it and they’re sneaking in these core moves.

Boat pose, for example… it rips at your core, and it’s just one of many I’ve loved doing.  Actually, I don’t love it during.  What I love is that feeling I have when I get home and I can “feel” my abs.  Feeling them shrinking… is what I hope is happening.

Vinylux Weekly Polish

The lovely Judy who does my pedicures talked me into trying this new polish, advising that it was marketed as a weekly polish.  I decided to give it a shot because my standard manicure usually starts chipping after a few days…

The Vinylux polish (at my salon) is only $2 more, and for me, it lasts TWO WEEKS!!!!  My nails don’t do well with gel or shellac, but they LOVE this extended wear polish.  Ask for it at your nail shop!  It’s amazing!!!  The color I’ve been wearing is called Rubble.  LOVE this stuff!

What are you loving this week?

    Ooh, I love Skinny Pop, but I buy a huge bag at Sam’s Club, so I have to make sure and limit myself to a serving …it’s hard because it’s so yummy! I have tried the Vinylux a couple of times. It didn’t last as long for me as Shellac, but much kinder to the nails for sure! This week I am loving the following: 3.4 pounds lost; Fall Out Boy’s new CD; fall weather; Uggs; Salted Caramel Mochas (altered of course!); date nights with my hubby; romance novels. Have a great weekend!!

    I am literally eating a 100 cal single bag of Skinny Pop as I clicked on the link to your blog… Weird! Haha! I love it – sooooo tasty! Guilt Free!

    I LOVE Skinny Pop Popcorn too! I have to buy the 100 calorie bags though because if I buy a big bag of it, I will eat it ALL. haha 🙂
