And so it is Friday once again! My favorite day of the week! I would take Fridays any day, even over weekend days. A week of perpetual Fridays would be my heart’s desire 😉 But I guess having them once a week is just part of what makes them special, haha! Anyway, I just have my UW class this morning after my favorite lifting session in the gym this morning. Then I plan on getting some work done and probably going to the grocery store. Either Whole Foods, Safeway, or maybe even Trader Joes…choices!
Okay, I really don’t know how to open this post so I’ll just let you dive right in to the finisher! Have fun reading my friends!

Amen to this!
This is really great and something I really need right now!
I love when bloggers share these! They are always so good!
This girl speaks truth! This is such a good post!
Interesting, but very true and I agree.
It sure can! This is beautiful 🙂
Let’s start supporting each other more!
Have you let something that was once good go recently?
I think I need to take this weekend to do just that. Who’s with me?
This is beautiful!
I think everyone should take a few “selfies” every now and again!
It takes a little thinking and digging deep.
Haha, everyone puts the weights in the wrong spots on our one dumbbell rack! It is so annoying!
Haha, yes! So annoying!
I am all about finding you voice!
Great read! Tons of info! It’s mostly common sense, but a great reminder if you’re frustrated!
Just make it simple. Whole veggies, fruits, grains, lean protein, nuts, beans, and nothing processed!
I love dishes and I emptying the dishwasher!
Yes! My favorite is #1! aRULEgula for the win!
I still love my tea even though I’m obsessed with coffee!
I could have told you this years ago!
Get it while it’s best!
Don’t you dare waste them!
Now you know 😉
In this case, I think so!
Amen girl! Amen!
I love this theory! Makes so much sense!
If you need some help.
We don’t just burn them working out!
Leucine. Do you know what it is?
Story of my life….tragically 😛
Blogging, Social Media, Technology:
Oldies but goodies!
Know the basics!
I need to work on this! Or I just need a better phone…
Haha, these are the best!
For when the “bloggers block” hits!
Make it good kids!
Okay…I just found this lovely’s blog…I really couldn’t have shared any post she wrote, but this one is most recent 😉
The woman is a goddess. She was the first blogger I EVER read, years and years ago!
It’s okay to ditch the makeup. I go makeup free at least a few days a week.
A deceivingly clean house is only a few minutes away 😉

You guys know I’m all about the lists!
Yes to all of this!

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ A great Monday morning! I wore my new sweater headband my mom got for me and am in love! It keeps me so warm and stays in place perfectly! Plus I got my first ever (EVER) Starbucks red cup! I felt like a champ 😉
+ I’m working on a pretty interesting final essay for my UW class. The topic is “real vs. imagined villains”. So I got the grand idea to do mine on the fast food industry and societies own responsibility to the obesity epidemic! I am actually really excited about writing this 10 page paper 😉
+ DC cold is NOTHING like NJ cold! At least for now that is! Really, it is November, and I can still go out in shorts some days! Please let these bearable temperatures last a bit longer weather gods! Please!
So tell me:
+ How are the temps in your neck of the woods? Bearable? Or have you gotten the unfortunate cold and crazy wind…even snow?
+ Which do you want more on a cold morning? Hot Chocolate or Coffee?
+ Tell me anything else you’d like! Any great posts you want to share? Leave a link!
