I can get a little down during the summer. It’s so hot here (and it’s been a very hot summer) that sometimes it feels like we’ll never get to fall. I’m mostly laid off from work because my clients “get out of Dodge” until the weather cools down. So writing down my Friday Favorites is a great reminder that life is good, it’s almost August (yay), and very soon life will return to the status quo (and I’ll have a regular income again!).
Friday Favorites from the Week
Perhaps the best part of my week was visiting my grandchildren. Time goes so fast and they grow up so quickly that, even though they live very close, I sometimes feel I’m missing out. Samuel will be four years old in November and Emma is 11 months!
I told you a couple months ago about Lucky Vitamin, but if you missed the Twitter chat last month you might not know about their own brand of quality products. Lucky Eats is a comprehensive line of quality, organic superfood, including the Pumpkin and Flax seeds that I used in the smoothie below. They are always priced better than you’ll find in most places, but now many of them are on sale!
Superfood Tropical Smoothie
- 2 bananas
- 8 ounces almond milk
- 1 serving vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 tablespoon Lucky Eats raw organic pumpkin seeds
- 1 tablespoon Lucky Eats raw organic flax seeds
Place all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
Legend Compression Wear is a fairly new company. They offer a variety of sport compression socks and sleeves as well as medical grade compression wear. As they grow their company they are looking for new ambassadors to help spread the word. They are looking for applicants who are bloggers and participate in some kind of endurance sport. If you are interested in joining me as a Legend Ambassador, please fill out this form (and kindly use my name when asked how you learned about the opportunity).
Just Cookie Dough
I read about Hampton Creek Just Cookie Dough a few months ago. It is a dairy free, egg free cookie dough that they had just introduced to SuperTarget. Well, my local Target is not Super, so it wasn’t until I was heading home from Blogfest when I pulled over because I was getting sleepy, at what happened to be a SuperTarget. Of course, the first thing I thought about was this cookie dough.
To be honest, I haven’t baked the cookies yet. But I have definitely pulled it out to eat a couple teaspoons straight from the jar. It’s delicious. You’d never guess that it was vegan. I think I’ll go eat some right now!
New Skirt Sports Styles
As you know, I’m a Skirt Sports Ambassador, so you can imagine how excited I am that new styles are available! Check out the beautiful new colors and patterns on the Gym Girl Ultra. It’s my favorite because it’s a little longer, which is comfortable and means no chafing. It’s also been Skirt Sports most popular skirt since 2005!
Finally, don’t forget that you can still enter the Treks Titanium wireless headphones giveaway! And if you’ve already entered, you can still earn extra entries by tweeting about the giveaway. These are really cool headphones. I know you’ll love them.
