Friday Favorites: The Olympics are here!

Well, this has been a long one!  And I wasn’t even all that busy but the days just seemed to go on forrrrrevvvvvverrrrr.  I’m linking up with Andrea this week to share a few favorites.

{ONE} Flowers of the Week

I can’t tell you how happy this has made me.  I finally switched them up a little, but I have to admit, these didn’t hold up as well.  This is two weeks ago …

… and this was this past week.  I also finally found a 2 x 3 frame for Hayden’s picture.

{TWO}  Fresh Snow

While I’m not enjoying these cold temperatures, I do love fresh snow.  I especially enjoy all of the animal tracks I find.   For example, it appears that we have a very busy rabbit living under our front porch.  There were also some tiny tracks running from our back porch to the woods that looked suspiciously like a mouse but I choose to pretend they don’t exist.

{THREE}  Healthy Snacks

I have moved on to a new fitness plan for February, so I have also been more intentional with my snacks.  This week my morning snack alternated between chips with guacamole and celery with peanut butter, and my afternoon snack was berries and mozzarella cheese.  I also had some coconut flavored almonds the first few days of the week.

And how cute is that smiling cheese!  I love these little snack packs because I have trouble with the larger package drying out or molding before I eat them all.  These are a little more expensive but there is no waste.

{FOUR}  Reward Leggings

No, there isn’t a new brand of leggings called Reward.  I rewarded myself with a new pair of leggings because I did yoga all 31 days in January.  And I finally decided to drink the Kool-Aid and try the Zella Live In leggings.

I am officially in love with these leggings.  Now, there are many claims that they don’t roll down and I was so hopeful.  But I did experience a little rolling when I was bent over in Rag Doll.  You can’t convince me that there is a single pair of leggings on the planet that won’t roll on my body in that position.  However, that was the only time they rolled, and I will overlook it because the fit and weight of these pants is amazing.  These are the Midi Leggings and come in Black and Red Fiery.  Not Fiery Red, Red Fiery.  There are a million different Zella leggings, so I can’t speak for any of the other styles, but these are a winner.

{FIVE} Olympics

Events started last night and I was all in.  I love the winter events (except I don’t really get curling), I love the athlete’s stories, and I love learning about the host country.  And I love that I finally figured out how to watch my Xfinity on my phone.  Lots of tv time coming up!

This is going to be a big weekend for us.  Sean starts working on the tile in the bathroom tonight, I get to spend time with family on Saturday, and we will be going to the RV Show either Saturday or Sunday morning.  I’m not sure I can handle so much excitement in one weekend.  Plus the Olympics!  Hope you have a good one!
