Five Things Friday #107
Today is a pretty light day for me, so I should be able to wrap everything up by around 2:30 pm. Neil’s brother is coming into town for a conference and he is staying with us this weekend, so we may be off on more adventures than we have of late. One of those may include a chocolate tour 🙂
To jump right into Friday and the impending weekend, here are the things I’m loving this week!
1. Reebok Crossfit Nanos
As you know, I’ve been adding some Crossfit classes to my exercise routine. When I visited another studio a few weeks ago, they were having a 50% off sale on their shoes. I saw a pair I NEEDED (ha) to have, but they didn’t have them in my size. Then the obsession began. I checked online and couldn’t find them, so I headed to the Mercari app where I get most of my Lululemon and other expensive exercise stuff for cheaper.
I found these Reebok Crossfit Nano 4.0s and loved them. They’re men’s which means that I don’t have to deal with obnoxious pink and orange colors and they’re amazing so far and I scooped them up for $40!
Remember, if you sign up using the code RDTFCD, you can get $2 and I get $2. BIG SPENDERS.
2. DAVIDs Tea French Toast Cardamom
I can’t believe that I didn’t include this yet. DAVIDs TEA finally brought back their Cardamom French Toast flavor which is my absolute favorite. I tried to stock up last year since it’s seasonal, and it was all gone in like a month. I usually mix this with a scoop of their Saigon Chai to add a little spice, and it’s the best thing ever when they bring back their eggnog lattes.
I’ve been on a bit of a salad kick this last week. I ate at Sweetgreen twice and last night made myself a giant salad at Plum Market. I’m never particularly excited about cold salads, however, so I’ll either order hot ones or warm them up a bit.
Now that it’s Fall and there are squashes a plenty, I want to just throw them all in a bowl and devour them.
4. American Horror Story: Roanoke
I also can’t believe I haven’t included this one yet considering the season is already halfway over. You all may recall my love for AHS and this season is no different. The format is totally different and tells the story of the murdered settlers of the Roanoke colony who refuse to let anyone else occupy their land. My favorite, Evan Peters, didn’t make his appearance until last night and I’m so glad he’s in it for the remainder of the season.
I love how this show uses the same actors but every season is a different story and different people. I actually may go back and watch some of the old ones again because I love it.
5. Pistachio Butter
This may be cheating since I already posted the recipe for this earlier in the week, but I’ve been going through this stuff like crazy. I’ve been having it with jam on English muffins, eating it with dates, and spreading it on apples. I haven’t had a bad combo yet, so if you’ve got a few minutes and some pistachios, you need to make this ASAP.
That’s all I’ve got for this week — I hope you all have a magical and wonderful weekend!
