I posted here about My Favorite Things. I got a great response to that post, so I thought I would do it again. To provide an update, I am still loving the Clearproof Acne System (so much so, I upgraded from the 7 day trial to the long-term system), My Favorite Bible, Robin, The Night Shift, and the amazing See-Saw. Lately, a few other things have caught my eye that are worth mentioning:
1. Brooks running shoes –
I didn’t really care about brands of shoes, until I started running. Being that I have bad knees, I knew that having good shoes would make or break me. Ed got hooked on Brooks shoes by a friend of ours who worked for a running store, and he swore by them. So, I doled out the money (they cost quite a bit compared to other shoes) and I haven’t regretted it one day since. If you have knee or feet problems and are thinking about running, invest in a great pair of shoes like these. Yes, they are an investment – but a great one! How did I chose which style/model to go with? By the pink color, of course!
2. “Addicted to Busy” by Brady Boyd
I did a really long post about this book here, but lets just say – long after finishing this book, it is still impacting me. Do yourself a favor and read it now!
3. Orgain Protein Powder
When Ed and I did the 21 day fix, a friend suggested this Protein powder. She gave us a recipe to use it in and it makes the drink taste like a Wendy’s Frosty. It is delish! It makes having a protein shake fun and healthy. The best part (besides the taste I mean)? You can buy it at Costco and it is affordable (unlike many other protein shakes!)
4. Our deck –
I know this seems like a weird one, but our deck is one of my favorite parts about our house. I love when it is warm enough (or cool enough these days) to enjoy lunch or dinner sitting outside and/or entertaining friends.
With the bottom part extended, our deck is massive and has plenty of room for playing and entertaining. Add in the woods all around us (we only have neighbors on one side) and it feels pretty secluded. If you live near us, feel free to come enjoy it with us.
5. Ice Cream –
What says summer like ice cream? While I do love ice cream, this made my list but I specifically love my new favorite flavors, Waffle Cone (by Breyer Blasts) and Crumb Cake (a flavor made by Sunni Skies ice cream shop near us). I enjoy ice cream, but I am not a big fan of trying new flavors – I tend to stick to Cake Batter, Cookie Dough, and a few others. But, trying and loving some fun new flavors makes me want to branch out more.
On a side note, if you are near Fuquay and want to try an amazing ice cream shop that is cheap and has a million different flavors, try Sunni Skies. It is that good.
