Hello everyone! This is my first Friday Favorites since my foot surgery in early December and I am so happy to be back. I still have a ways to go for my recovery and another 6 weeks before I can start running again which brings me to my first favorite for Friday-
I was selected to be on the 2015 #RockNBlog team as an ambassador for the Rock and Roll Marathon series. Ironic as I sit here with a huge incision across my broken foot. I applied for the ambassadorship long before I knew I would be having surgery and I never expected to get picked. But now here I am, committing to running a few half and full marathons across the country in 2015. While I am not able to start training yet, for now I am enjoying supporting my fellow team members who are running this weekend in Phoenix. Good luck everyone!
Last weekend I spent a day with some family Chad and I hadn’t seen in a while. They were visiting Florida from Denver, CO and we met them about three hours west of Orlando in a town called Punta Gorda right on the Gulf of Mexico. We had a nice lunch but I really loved the candy shop we visited. I splurged on caramel truffles and pralines. I need to get running soon!
As I haven’t been very active lately, I’ve been careful about what I am eating. I’ve been playing around with some recipes for my Meatless Monday recipes. I always seem to be on a Brussels sprout kick. I have come up with a great recipe for a raw Brussels sprout salad and will share soon. I also make marinated sprouts all the time- something my Mom introduced me to when I was young and I’ve always loved them.
And Chad and I have been eating a lot of Vegan chili lately. Yummsterlicious.
And I haven’t quite let go of the Holiday season yet. I found the seasonal line from Celestial teas in my grocery store on sale and bought three of the five flavors. My favorite flavor is Nutcracker Sweet with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. It’s been my go to wake up tea almost every morning since I picked it up.
Lastly- I’ve been really into quotes lately and this is probably one of my favorites…with a little twist. I’ve posted this picture before with little Zoey eyeing my cookies. This is probably one of my favorite Zoey pictures too.
And then there’s this-
That’s all I’ve got on this Friday. I hope you all head over to Housewife Glamour to see what Heather and my other blogger friends are loving this week. Friday is my favorite day to read blogs.
Have a great weekend everyone!
