Hello all of you ahh-mazing people! It’s a sunny Friday here, and I hope it’s a beautiful one for you too! Today marks my last Friday as a 30 year old. Say whaaa? I am so very grateful to get to celebrate another birthday, and getting older has only proven that life just gets better with each year! It’s still hard to believe I’ll be 31 come Monday.
To get the celebration started early, I enjoyed a free drink from Remedy Coffee thanks to their sweet birthday coupon! I have become so obsessed with rugs and will one day invest in some whenever we find a place and move. This one at their counter is gorgeous!
Decaf soy milk latte for the afternoon. I’m all for fully caffeinated coffee until it’s later, then it’s decaf central. It was so good! I wanted to try soy milk for a change of pace.
#facesinplaces Matt put his pickles and pickled jalapenos in the shape of a face when we enjoyed a Dr. Praeger’s burger for dinner this week. Erin shares these hilarious faces on her Insta page!
Dinner is served! I cooked quinoa and added a marinated artichoke salad (artichoke hearts, olives, roasted red pepper), rotisserie chicken, and steamed Brussels with an amazing sauce I am sharing below.
Have any of you tried Larbar’s newest protein line? It had a slightly different texture, and Matt and I loved it!
Said amazing sauce! I saw this at Aldi yesterday, and I had to get it. It’s full of flavor!
We’re really excited to try this one too.
I have been so bummed that Aldi hasn’t carried the Mediterranean chicken burgers for a long time, so when I saw these, I was so excited! Perfect for an evening when you want a quick but homemade meal.
I snagged this while on a Tarjay run recently. I’ve been craving tofu and tempeh a lot, and I always love trying new products!
Do yourself a favor and order a tank or tee stat! I’m really proud to have mine.
Nutribollocks: spurious nutrition advise with little to no scientific evidence, frequently used on social media to make a profit; promotes disordered eating.
Kaci and I have been doing well at trading clothes like old times. Only now it takes a little more planning, but I have always loved sharing our closets! She let me borrow this cah-ute Old Navy cacti print shirt, and it is so soft and comfy.
Rocked my vintage dress belted this time, and I love it with and without!
Getting older but not giving up fun SnapChat filters. Sorry not sorry.
Do yourselves a favor and sign up for Barre3’s free Barre3 Anywhere program!! Obligation free, and it is amazing.
I may be a plant hospice nurse, but I still very much love and appreciate plants and flowers. I stopped to snap this while on my walk this week after lunch.
I downloaded Morgan Harper Nichols’ app, and it’s so lovely. It gives you a daily reminder, wallpapers, inspiration, and so many positive messages. It is so worth it!
Wishing you all a most wonderful day and weekend! Please feel free to share plans or your own favorites in the comments!
