Friday Favorites #1

Hey there & Happy Friday! This week flew by! We got about 6 inches of snow last night thus my fiance is off of work and my siblings had no school. Snow days used to be a lot more fun as a child. I don't personally enjoy playing in the freezing cold snow but in the past I remember staying out there for hours. Oh the joys of childhood! 

As I was thinking of ways to improve my blog this New Year and I decided that having a weekly Friday Favorites post might be a fun way to share more of my personal life with you all! I plan on Friday Favorites covering some of my favorite things that week, new recipes, goals, etc.

Some things I am loving…
Caribbean inspired smoothies, YUM! This New England weather won't get me down! Yesterday I enjoyed a delicious tropical green smoothie while waiting for my Mom at the doctors! I love using my Glass Dharma straw, it's fantastic even on the go!

 You can shop their reusable, sustainable glass straws here:
Glass Dharma Simple Elegance 12mm 10 Inch Glass Straw

Speaking of Glass Dharma, today is National Drinking Straw Day! I put together this #PicStitch for Instagram, can you tell I'm in love with their straws?!
Be sure to check out Glass Dharma's Facebook page today as they will be giving out a few $10 gift codes if you go show their page some love & discuss the history of straws with them!

I've also been preparing for the FullyRaw Challenge! FullyRaw Kristina's Instagram page is filled with mouth watering inspiration… this is one of my favorites!

We have bought lots of fruit & leafy greens so we are ready to go! I'm always so proud of my mom when she gets home from shopping and I found that she bought mostly organic produce. My mom is very frugal and if you told her to buy organic a couple years ago she would have laughed! She has been extremely supportive throughout my journey to wellness and is always eager to learn. I love her so much! My fiance, mom, and sister plan to join me on the challenge! I'm excited! Will you be joining in?!

I love surprises...October was Fair Trade Month and I won one of the #BeFair Twitter parties. I ALMOST forgot all about my prize, but yesterday I got a fun little package from Green Mountain Coffee! I had no idea what I won and I was completely amazed when I turned around this awesome mug to find my winning tweet! I'm in LOVE! How awesome is this?!

On another positive note, our DVD player is working again and I cannot wait to get back into the routine of Zumba daily! There is just something about that latin music and dancing that has me hooked. I definitely prefer doing the at home DVDs instead of a class, though. I'm not the best dancer, I just pretend to be ;)

Oh… how did I almost forget?! I got a job as a hostess! Here's to making money and planning my dreams! I plan on utilizing some blog schedule printables that I found at More From Your Blog! Organization just makes me feel better!

That concludes the first week of Friday Favorites! I'm so excited to make 2014 the best year yet!

How was your week? Did you have any favorites?
