Friday Favorites

Favorite Song – The first installment of my favorite Christmas songs! Merry Christmas Baby featuring Colbie Caillat and Brad Paisley. I love the rock/blues feeling this song has! It is upbeat and super fun to sing along to!

Favorite Workout – Popsugar’s Ultimate 30-Minute Cardio Pilates – An instructor from Burn does this one, and ladies….burn indeed. Seriously, if you need a new full body quick work out you need to check this out. The abs portions are hard core burn in areas of my abs I didn’t know existed.

Favorite Surprise– Chris surprised me with roses, Godiva chocolate and a sweet card on our anniversary! Five days later, and they are still beautiful and perfect!


Favorite coffee time – I love when the holiday themed magazines start rolling in!


Favorite Recipe – I found this baked fried rice recipe on Pinterest. It is quite different than mine and uses siracha, pineapple and cashews. I think next time I will change it up with this! (click picture for link)

This baked fried rice recipe uses brown rice instead of white. With added pineapple, cashews, edamame, and sriracha, it makes a great, easy meal!

Favorite Find –Β You know that Rosy Vaseline lip product I am constantly raving about, and got several people to buy? (Still waiting on my royalties…) Wellllllll I found a Creme Brulee one at Target for $1,79. You’re welcome!

Side note – The Rosy one is usually found with the lotions NOT the chapsticks. This one I found up front in the cosmetic section where the holiday gift sets are.

    I LOVE this song! I am listening to it as I go through the rest of your post and I was in a good mood anyway but now my spirits are lifted even HIGHER! I love it.

    I come across your funny about more desserts than low carb stuff and I had to laugh because I always look for ‘light’ stuff and always come up with ‘loaded’ stuff.

    The puppies! The one in front of the mirror cracks me up. Our dog does not get surprised at all in front of the mirror but I remember we had a dog growing up who got surprised *every time*

    Happy Belated Anniversary!!! Those flowers are beautiful. And chocolate is always a must. Of course, I like chocolate with my chocolate, so I may not be the most reliable source. πŸ™‚

    Oooo… I need to find that flavor of the Vaseline balm!!!!! I have the cocoa butter one.
