Friday Favorites 1.22.16

First favorite of the day...it's finally Friday!  Even though this was a short week, it has been a hard one at work.  In a good way though, I am really, really enjoying the work I am doing now.

Fortune cookies.  I had the best fortune this week...I really hope this one comes true!


Garmin Activity Tracker.  My company offered its associates a chance to be part of a study where participants wear different activity trackers.  I signed up on the off chance I would be picked.  The response was so huge, that they made it so everyone could participate.  I picked up my tracker yesterday, and I have to say, I am loving it!  I haven't looked into everything it does yet, but one of my favorite things I have discovered, is the fact that it tells me when I need to get up and move.  There are so many times I will just get into what I am working on and before I know it, a few hours have passed.  That has been especially true the past few weeks.  Having a reminder to just get up and move is really nice.


Dirty Grandpa.  Zac Efron and Robert De Niro.  This movie looks hilarious.  I was so excited last week because I thought it came out then.  The time has finally come, though!  Fingers crossed it doesn't disappoint.

Green smoothies.  Last Christmas (2014), I received a NutriBullet.  I was really good about making smoothies the first month or so after, but then I got away from it.  The other night it was a bit later than I normally like to eat and I was craving something healthy.  I decided to make myself a smoothie and it really hit the spot!  I combined kale, banana, frozen mango, lemon juice and water.  It made me want to get back to making them more often!

That's it for this Friday.  I hope you all have a great weekend!

Linking up with AndreaApril and Amanda.

    1. I totally got sucked in watching the NutriBullet infomercials when I would work out in the morning. It really is handy to have, especially since I don't have a real blender, it's a good substitute!

  7. I love wearing my fitness tracker! It keeps me moving a lot more with the reminders and it makes me realize how much I really move or don't move each day which I love. Dirty Grandpa looks hilarious! Happy Friday!

  10. So awesome that your company is doing that- my FitBit has made me so much more aware of how much I'm moving (or not moving!) during the day. Keeps me motivated for sure! Green smoothies are the best, I've been trying to do a few a week!

  15. I just got an Apple Watch, and I love that it vibrates and tells me to move around! Sometimes I just get so busy at work and before I know it, I've been sitting at my desk for a few hours and haven't moved! What a great fortune cookie! I hope that it comes true for you too!

  17. I want to see Dirty Grandpa so bad! I cant wait to hear what you thought of it. I have a toddler and another in the belly, so I won't be going to see it in theaters, but I like knowing if it's worth it to rent on demand when it comes out!

  21. I am so glad that you are loving the work you do now! It makes life so much more enjoyable! I hope that you love the Garmin and NutriBullet. You'll have to tell us about them and what you think! (Well, the Garmin) but the NutriBullet i've never seen in action. You should do a blog post about it :)
