Friday Fives: Fall Favorites

by Heidi on October 24, 2014

There’s a crispness in the air friends. After spending last weekend in the beautiful lake region of NH watching two of my favorite people get hitched, I’m loving this pseudo-fall like weather.  The cooler mornings, the pretty trees…you  know fall like stuff. AND we’re going pumpkin picking this weekend with little man, so that’ll be fun! I still need to hunt down his costume, I’m not a 100% sold on what I bought at the wee-sale.

Anyhoozle, onto my favorite things at the moment!

 

1. My Bobeau Wraps

Seriously, these are the most comfortable things EVER. Go get one. Or two. Or three (I have three. But i’m dying for the camel one.)

2. Shakeology

So I became a coach mostly for the discount. But mostly because I REALLY like the product. I did the 3 day refresh before the wedding we went to earlier this month and had decent results (down 4.5 lbs). I’ve since gained 2 back but I’m trying to get myself back into my routine. It’s been really challenging with the darker mornings – you know, everyday struggles but I’m getting there. At least I’ve effectively kicked my soda habit (WAHOO!)

3. My new Mom-mobile

Last week, I picked up a new Honda CRV. I call it my happy mom-mobile. No, it’s not a minivan (or family fun bus as Liz would call it) but it’s bigger for me. Our 2001 Ford Taurus was about to gulp down another $1,000 in repairs and as Hubs just got a new job, and we just paid off our other car, we made the plunge so that we don’t need to be a pseudo-one-car family anymore. We were trading off the Ford depending on who was on drop-off or pick-up duties with Little Man.

4. Zucchini Muffins

I made some delicious zucchini muffins a few weeks ago and it was AMAZING. I have some zucchini that i need to use this weekend so I’m thinking of this bread (maybe muffins?) or something similarly inspired. Cue pinterest.

5. Leggings and Boots.

I don’t care what anyone says. Leggings and boots and long sweaters are my fall uniform. Nothing says fall more than a cozy sweater, a nice pair of leggings and some cognac colored boots. Forgive me but leggings can be pants any day (as long as your butt is covered).

 

What are you currently loving this fall?

Autumn-y Apple Fritters

October 23, 2014

I am failing miserably at all of my goals for the month. But in my defense, I have not bought anything new and we’re 20 days in and we just tried our first new recipe last weekend. We hit up Larriland Farms with some family friends up in Howard County, picked pumpkins, took a hayride […]

Eating Clean on the Go

October 2, 2014

So recently I started focus on a more 80/20 clean eating plan. I haven’t been great at it this past month, in fact I’ve been really horrible at it. BUT I know this. And I know what I need to do to fix it. I’m constantly asked “How do you eat clean on the go?” […]

October Intentions

October 1, 2014

After talking about my September fails, let’s chat about goals. When I don’t have goals, I feel like I’m flailing. Like I’m not on track. So, I decided to get back to it and set myself some goals to get back on track and not eff up this month. 1. Complete the 3 day refresh. […]

The Wurst: Life Lately

September 29, 2014

So I have to step back and apologize for officially being a horrible blogger. Life, man. It started with the week of our anniversary – cramming two weeks of work into five days that didn’t have nearly enough hours and a lot of other crap going on. Thankfully we did get a date night and […]

Five years

September 12, 2014

Really hard to believe that it’s been five years since we said “I do” on that magic day in DC. In that five years we have… …Moved half way up the Eastern Seaboard…and back again, building a home in Annapolis, MD. …Spent six months apart thanks to the US Army …Ran 2+ races together… And […]

Clean Eating … Part 2

September 8, 2014

It’s time again my friends for another clean eating week. It’s a recovery week for me after yesterday’s tri/duathlon (thanks corrupt DC Sewage for overflowing into the Potomac) but I’m registering for the Rock Hall Sprint Tri the first weekend of October so I need to keep up with training (I’ll go into that later […]

Fashionable Friday

September 5, 2014

So i don’t often do “style” posts – read…by often I mean never. But I’ve been following so many fashion bloggers lately trying to get some inspiration for my fall “style” that I’m going to try to throw my hat in the ring to do the every-so-often style post. Mind you, I will not be […]

PiYo Baby

September 4, 2014

So I finally got PiYo in the mail yesterday. Finally. God the USPS is so SLOW sometimes (kidding. I just have the patience of a newborn). It actually got here relatively quickly Did my first workout last night – sweaty…holy sweaty! I really enjoyed the fast pace of it, though it was hard to follow […]

August 25, 2014

So I’m getting ready to sign up as a Beachbody Coach – a friend of mine has been talking to me about it since we went to our RRCA coaching certification together. She recruited me this week to join her 5 day clean eating challenge. I’ve been a part of this other challenge group off […]
