Happy Friday! This week actually went by pretty quickly; always a good thing. The weather was even okay! Sunny and not -20 degrees. It got up to the high 70s, low 80s in the middle of the week. Yay! They are showing the same good temps for the weekend and no rain as of now. I am hoping that will hold true for the festival on Sunday! Besides the SAT II on Saturday and the festival on Sunday, I have tons of schoolwork and college stuff to get done this weekend...ugh. But once I sit down and check these things off the list I feel so much better and more motivated to get the other things done. A domino effect if you will. My mom and I plan to sit down and really sort out the college stuff though because I am feeling really overwhelmed about it all. I need to make sure I am on track with the deadlines and papers, essays, applications, etc. But before that fun starts, let's enjoy the Friday Finisher!
Monday: Power Monday #13 Workouts For Beginners
Tuesday: 4th Annual Live Well Sports and Health Festival
Wednesday: Comforting Veggie Bean Chili

Lying is my biggest pet peeve! Don't lie to someone else and don't lie to yourself!
We all need to support each other and show kindness in this wonderful blogging community we have. We are all struggling with something and negativity won't help.

Accept and take control of your own happiness and life.

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ 100% on my Math quiz. Yes! Now I am just waiting to get my grade form the test we took Thursday.
+ 117 days (and going strong) of being (eyebrow and eyelash) trich free!
+ The amazing opportunity I will have on Sunday!
+ I had a week of some great eats and continue to be inspired to come up with at least one or two new recipes or combos a week! I am so happy I have allowed myself to try new foods and keep branching out and not getting to stuck in a food routine! It's so much more fun!
So Tell me:
What are you up to this weekend?
Do you remember your dreams when you wake-up? Any recent crazy ones you care to share?
What is your favorite Fall produce? I would have to say apples, oranges, pears, all the squash and pumpkins and I have been dying to try my hand at turnip or parsnip fries!
