Hello everyone and Happy Friday!
Whew! What a week it has been! My week has felt exceptionally long because next week, we’re on vacation!! I’m so excited. We really don’t have any big plans and this will be more of a stay-cation. However, I’m hoping we can plan a few fun things to do. There’s a very important and exciting reason we’re making this vacation a stay-at-home one and I can’t wait to share with you very soon!
Anyway, on to our Photo Finish Friday post as we recap this week.
First up, as you might recall I mentioned last week that I had been caught a little off-guard about a biking event I had promised the bestie I would do with her. So, even though it was last minute, of course I couldn’t turn it down! Here we are at the Thriller Ride. We had a great time and I’ll be doing a full recap of the ride later next week so stay tuned!
Next up, I have a some new favorites and an old favorite to share.
After a run earlier this week, I was parched and had forgotten my water bottle. I also had to make a quick stop to pickup a few items at CVS and found this in their cooler section. I have tried the other Bai drinks before, but this is their new carbonated version, Bai Bubbles. I love the Bai drinks because they have all natural ingredients and so much flavor! This one seriously tasted like cherry pie in a can. I haven’t seen these in the grocery stores in my area yet, but I did find you can order them by the case on Amazon. Yes, please!
Another favorite, which is an oldie-but-a-goodie, is this Teavana Holiday Tea Collection. I got this for Christmas last year and was thrilled to taste all the amazing flavor combinations. This collection has four great flavors including Coco Caramel Sea Salt, Pumpkin Spice Brulee, Spiced Apple Cider and White Chocolate Peppermint. They are all amazing, but the White Chocolate Peppermint was definitely my favorite. I’m thinking this one is seasonal, too, because I don’t see it on their website yet. (Please don’t let it be discontinued!!) I have been enjoying these flavors once again now that it is Fall.
I don’t drink that often, but I do enjoy a glass (sometimes a couple of glasses) of red wine usually on Friday or Saturday night. I know the Cupcake brand sometimes gets a bad rep, but I tend to like it for a less expensive variety. I found this at the store last week, the Black Forest Decadent Red. It sounded so delicious that I had to give it a try! I am loving this wine flavor and I find it to be very deep and rich. It pairs perfectly with dark chocolate!
In other news, I received this new device from the Bellabeat company, call the Leaf. They sent me the device to try out and review. This is a version of an activity tracker (of sorts). It pairs with an app for your mobile device and tracks activity such as sleep, breathing, steps and general activity. I will be reviewing the device over the next few weeks and intend on doing a full review, so check back!
The weather has been amazing this week. We have been experiencing much cooler temperatures and one morning was even down into the 30’s! Feeling motivated after my weekend bike ride, I enjoyed several runs outside this week. What gorgeous skies and colors!
That’s all for this week everyone! I hope all of you have a fantastic weekend. I know I’m excited because this weekend kicks off my vacation! Whoo hoo!
What are you doing this weekend?
What’s your favorite wine? (Please tell me! I love trying new flavors!)
