Friday Favorites!

fridayHappy Friday friends!! I hope you all had a wonderful week and are ready for an even better weekend! I don’t know about you, but this time change really messed me up this week! I thought we were supposed to gain an hour and feel rested… well for me I’ve been so tired and ready for bed by 9:00 all week!!

I’m excited to share my favorite things from this week with you! Here they are:

1. Alex and Ani Puzzle Bracelet for Autism

Alex and Ani Autism Bracelet

I’m so excited about these bracelets! I’m a huge fan of Alex and Ani (if you recall I bought ones with sea shells on them to ask my bridesmaids to be in my wedding) and you all know I work with kiddos with autism, so this particular bracelet holds a special place in my heart. I just bought the gold one and can’t wait to wear it! They come in both silver and gold, and a portion of the sales goes to The National Autism Association.

2. Podcasts


 I don’t know if I’ve been living under a rock, but I’ve just jumped on the Podcast bandwagon and am obsessed now! If you have an iPhone the podcast app is already on your phone. Once you click on it, you can literally listen to anything you can think of. In the picture above, I just clicked on “top charts”, but you can type in any topic you want. I help with Erik’s business and since my background is education/counseling, I’ve been listening to different business podcasts to learn more.

You all know how much I love Netflix, especially when I do the treadmill! Well, this week I’ve listened to podcasts instead while on the treadmill and I feel so much more productive! #mulitasking

3. Pure Barre Ball Pop

Ahhh so technically this happened last week, but I’m officially in the Pure Barre ball popping club! In class you put the ball either behind your knee when your leg is bent, or between your thighs and they always say “squeeze the ball like you want to pop it”… whelp… ya so that was embarrassing when I suddenly felt it deflate! After class I went and apologized to the owner for ruining her ball and she was so excited. Of course she made me take a picture right after class, so sorry for the sweaty head and no makeup face! Yesterday someone said to me in class “I heard you popped a ball!” Ahh… yup that’s me… the ball popper!

4. Amella Caramels- Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin anything is fair game in my opinion from September 1st-December 1st. When I found these pumpkin spice caramels at HomeGoods I instantly knew it was love at first sight! They’re really good! To top it off, they’re certified gluten free! I’ll be honest, they’re a little oily, so I kept them in the refrigerator and then they were perfection. You need these in your life! 🙂 I couldn’t find them online to buy, so if you have a HomeGoods near you, look for them! Online I did however find Habanero Pink Salt Caramels and Honey Lavender Caramels, which both sound amazing!

There you have it, some of my favorite things from the week! I hope you all have a great weekend, see you next week! 🙂
