Friday Favorites: The End of October

Happy Friday!  I cannot believe that we are upon the last weekend in October.  Where in the world has the time gone?  

1.  Roasted Broccoli.  I am a huge fan of roasted veggies.  I love the flavor, and it's so easy.  For me, I just toss whatever veggie with olive oil, kosher salt, pepper and garlic powder and then roast.  Yum.  I tried broccoli for the first time this week and absolutely loved it.  Broccoli isn't one of my favorite veggies, but it is definitely up there now.  I love the flavor of the seasonings with the broccoli and it's even better in my opinion when you roast til you get some 'burnt' spots.  If you need to change up the way you are making broccoli, or just need a new veggie to add to your repertoire, I highly suggest roasted broccoli!

2.  Calson Knit Blazer.  I picked this up way back in July from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and finally wore it for the first time this week.  I originally purchased it to wear more on Fridays with jeans, since the material is a bit more casual, but I paired it with black pants, and an ivory blouse on Wednesday and thought it looked really nice together.  Not too casual at all!  And, I cannot tell you how comfort it is.  You almost feel like you are wearing a cozy sweatshirt.  Perfect for those workplaces that are always freezing.  Now I am just wishing I had purchased it in more colors!

3.  Vote for Jovi!  One of my friends has the cutest dog, Jovi.  She's in a contest on Facebook, so if you have a few extra minutes, I (and my friend!) would so apprecaite if you could go and 'like' her picture, shown below.  Just click on the link here and like her photo!




4.  Cuisinart Premier Series 7-Cup Food Processor.  I get the best hand me downs from my mom, and this food processor is no exception.  I needed one to make a specific recipe, and when I was talking to my mom about buying one, she remembered she had this in a closet at home that hadn't been used in ages.  She gave it to me while we were in Indy last weekend, and I plan on testing it out this weekend.

5.  Femme Fit.  I signed up for Femme Fit's 21 Day Total Transformation program last week and actually started it this week.  The program is through an app, and one that you can do at home or at your local gym.  You are given a meal plan, and if you use My Fitness Pal app, it then syncs with the Femme Fit app, so your trainer knows how you are doing - not just on your workouts, but your eating, too.  As I write this, it's only been 4 days, but so far so good!  

Hope you all have a great weekend!    

Linking up with AndreaErikaApril, and Katie.

  2. I LOVE roasted broccoli! And yes, the little burnt parts that are crunch are my favorites! I love to put lawry's season salt on it too, sometimes. I've never tried garlic powder, so I'll have to do that. Yay for a great start to your workout program!!!

  6. I made roasted broccoli this week and it was so good-- even though I accidentally let it get a little too crisp! That blazer definitely looks so cozy without being too casual- it's the best when you find pieces like that. I hope you have a great weekend!

  12. I agree 100% about roasted broccoli! It is SO GOOD. My husband and I are obsessed with making it as a side several times a week. I think roasted sweet potatoes and roasted broccoli are a tie for my favorite roasted veggies.
