Friday Favorites- Week of 11/5

I spend a lot of my free time on the train reading.
Books, magazines and blogs.
My blog reading is not limited to healthy living, I also enjoy food/cooking-fitness-family-etc

One of my all time favorite blogs is Iowa Girl Eats.
Kristin (the girl behind the blog) makes the most incredible dishes, not always 100% healthy but that's okay by me!
Life in moderation.

Although I look forward to all of her posts there is one day every week that I get the most excited about, Friday.

She does a round up of her favorites of the week, everything from DIY-fashion-recipes-funnies-travel etc and I decided after weeks of reading them I want to do the same.

So that is what this long winded intro was all about, introducing Friday Favorites here on JKS and I encourage all of you to join me!

All I can think about is enjoying one [or five] of these cookies in front of the fire while sipping on hot coco watching Elf. Thanks to Culinary Concoctions by Peabody that will happen very soon.

Favorite Motivational Quote: I have been toying with the idea of signing up for the Long Island 1/2 Marathon which takes place on May 5, 2013. I feel like this quote is the push I need to sign up and train.

Favorite Wedding Find: I LOVE this off the shoulder sweatshirt! I think Eddie would agree that it would be perfect for me. A little bling bling never hurt anyone, right?

 Simple and chic. 
I would do this with a wine glass and pair it with a nice bottle of wine as a gift for someone. Hmmm Christmas is coming...

Favorite Nail Design:

Those are the words that come to mind from this look. Now if only I was talented with nail art this could happen.

Favorite Must Have Accessory: This ring from Baublebar. I have a slight obsession with rose gold and think this would be a perfect addition to my jewelry box!
Favorite Appetizer Recipe: These babies will be made for either Thanksgiving or Christmas eve celebrations.
You're welcome in advance family members.

Why didn't I think of this?
Either way I am thrilled Yummy Mummy did and shared it, she also made a recipe for BRUSSELS MAC & CHEESE that I will be making as soon as we have electricity.

Favorite Fitness Fashion: Nike Skeleton Pants

These bad boys have been popping up all over. People just aren't sure what to think of them.
If I was a size 2 athelete I'd rock the heck out of these hot pants. I love the design. 
They're weird...but perfect.
What do you think?

Favorite Sing-a-long song of the moment: HO HEY! By The Lumineers

Despite the song title, this isn't a song about disrespecting women, nor is it sung by the 7 dwarfs.
Actually it's an adorably catchy love song and thanks to a current movie commercial [can't remember which at the moment] it's been playing over and over in my head all week.

Favorite some E card

And last but not least....Favorite Life Moment:  WE GOT POWER BACK LAST NIGHT!!!

That's a wrap on my first Friday Favorites!

Let me know in the comments if you would like to see these each week 
Happy Friday Sweaties

Glad you have power again! Not sure about the skeleton tights but everything else seems like something I'd like. The off the shoulder sweatshirt is really cute!

Woot Woot for power! I like those pants but agree with you about being a size XXS to wear them. They are interesting!
