Happy Friday! I’m so glad it’s the end of the week. This is literally how I’ve felt all week… being sick is no fun! I’m finally back to myself and feeling good, just in time for the weekend!
Can you gals believe Christmas is one week away?! I know I can’t! Next week I have fun holiday activities planned all week for the kiddos in my social skills groups! I love seeing the joy the holidays bring out in the kids!
Here are some of my favorite things this week:
1. Gluten Free Throat Lozenges!
You don’t even know how thrilled I was to find these! I have never seen any before that say “gluten free” and therefore have gone four years without lozenges! I’m sure other brands are gluten free out there, but I know when I’m sick the last thing I want is to try to figure it out… or even worse get sick on top of being sick! I found these at my local health food store, but you can order them online here! I’m ordering a box to have! 🙂
2. Peppermint Everything!
One of my December goals was to find new gf holiday treats… well let me tell you, I did! I’m in a peppermint phase right now so please sit back and enjoy!
Peppermint Yogurt Covered Pretzels! Now that’s what I’m talking about! These are my guilty pleasure treats of the season! They’re the perfect mix of salty, sweet and crunchy!
Think Thin Dark Chocolate Peppermint bars. Since I don’t have a regular office job, I’m always on the go with work therefore I keep snacks on me at all times! Literally at any given time you can open my purse and find a Think Thin bar. These are hands down my favorite bars, so I was so excited to find this limited edition flavor!
TruJoy Organic Candy Canes. I’m super excited to share these with you! I try to eat as healthy as I can and cheat in moderation, but try to stay away from red 40 dye so when I found these I knew I had to have them! These are peanut free/gluten free/vegan/kosher and made in peanut free/gluten free facility.
Amella Peppermint Carmels. And now for another cheat treat! These are a limited edition holiday flavor and so delicious! As always they are certified gluten free!
Since I’m finally feeling better I’ve done my smoothie prep for the week again. I swear by this! Not only is it super helpful in the mornings, but it helps boost my immune system after being sick.
4. The Beard Mat
I saw this brilliant product on Pinterest called The Beard Mat and instantly knew Erik had to have it! This is the perfect last minute stocking stuffer for the bearded man in your life. I don’t know about you, but it drives me crazy when Erik trims his beard and little hairs are left in the sink, even after he “cleans” it! 🙂
There you have it, some of my favorite random things from the week! I hope you all had a wonderful week and have an even better weekend!
I would love to hear your favorite things!
