5 Favorites Friday #1

Today I am bringing back Friday favorites with a little twist. Instead of sharing my favorite things from around the web, I am going to share 5 items, recipes, people, etc. I really am enjoying in my life at the moment.

So lets get into my very first, 5 Favorites Friday!

Chunky Peanut Butter


About three years ago I discovered almond butter and stopped eating PB cold turkey. Over time I developed a disgust towards all things peanut butter: candy, ice cream, proteins, etc.
However, that all changed two weeks ago when I got a strong craving for an english muffin with pb on top. 
Pregnancy cravings are weird.

Big Brother 17

Eddie and I look forward to this show every summer and it never disappoints.  It seems as though this season no body came to play it safe and they have gunned for the most threatening players from week one. The two people I didn't like in the house are already gone so from here on out I am destined for heartbreak but I am ready because I just can't get enough!

Honda CR-V

Earlier this week Eddie and I went to look at a new car for me/our growing family. I have been researching a few different models for awhile now but have always come back to the Honda CR-V. Little did we know we would be taking it home with us that night and now we have the perfect family car!


Although my bump hasn't officially "popped" yet the little one that I have has caused me some discomfort when trying to sleep and as someone who already has a lot of trouble sleeping/staying asleep this pillow has become a godsend. I never thought I would be a person who fell in love with a body pillow but the Snoogle is life changing.

Water Cooler

I understand how incredibly random this is but back in June when my parents were staying with us we started talking about getting a water cooler for our home. I had always thought they were very expensive so it wasn't in the cards for us but after my dad did the research for us (Thanks Dad!) we discovered that they are only $3 to rent and $7 per 5 gallon jug. Talk about a deal! I have always been a big water drinker and now that I am pregnant I find myself craving ice cold water all day, everyday so this little guy has become my BFF, next to the snoogle of course.

That's it for my first 5 Favorites Friday! 

What are you loving this week?


  1. Shelli & Clay are my favorites! And the twins. I'm so glad they have a good cast this Summer. Love the new car! Enjoy!

  2. Congrats on the new car! And never knew that about a water cooler... I might have to invest myself!

  3. I love my CR-V too! And I'm currently loving Hawaii.

  4. Congratulations on the pregnancy!!! I'm sooo happy that your back! Really missed the blogs and vlogs and happy that you are letting us back into your life especially during such an exciting time!! I saw on your facebook page that you weren't sure how to jump back in to blogging (your already doing a great job!) - I personally always love your recipes, weekend recaps and when you explain your crazy work out calorie burns and what difficult moves you did. Its very motivating and made me want to push for new PRs. OH I also LOVE when you share your new finds/favorites...I have ran out to the store multiple times #justkeepsweatingmademebuyit You and Eddie are so fun, glad your back!!! :)
