Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! This week has been a doozy for me. My heart wasn't in this week. I'm looking forward to having a restorative weekend! I am trying a yummy new brunch spot with my friends on Saturday morning. For those local to the Charlotte area it's Little Spoon in Selwyn. Then on Sunday I'm heading to Asheville to see the Biltmore with my parents and 2 of my friends. I think this weekend will be just what the doctor ordered. So that being said,  I'm linking up with Andrea, Narci, and Erika to share what I'm loving this week!


My coworker and I have started an afternoon tradition. Every afternoon around 2 or 3 we have tea time! We get excited about it everyday. It's a yummy, warm "treat" to get us through the afternoon slump. I've always loved tea...I remember drinking tea as a little girl. Granted, it was mostly sugar when I was little ha!

I sometimes after dinner have a cup of decaffeinated tea like Chamomile. It's like a hug in a mug! Okay, I hate myself for saying that.

Also, my mug doesn't hurt. Isn't it the cutest? I usually drink Twinings tea...either plain ole black tea or Darjeeling!


I never thought I would say this, but I've begun to enjoy podcasts. I love listening to one on my way to work or throwing headphones in while I take Gigi on a walk. Of course, the podcasts I enjoy are nutrition and fitness oriented. It really is my passion! Here are the ladies I've been listening to...

Any suggestions of ones that I should listen to?


I pinned this yesterday. It was such a sense of encouragement for me. This week has left me feeling unfulfilled. But everyday is a new day.

I know it sounds cheesy, but words really can have an impact on your mindset. I talked about it here before my blogging hiatus. 


If you missed it, since my blogging hiatus I've covered...

...what goals I've made for 2017! I would love to hear what goals you guys have for this year.

Alright, that's all folks! I will leave you with a cute picture of the pups...

Also, little Piper is getting spayed today so say a prayer for her!

Ok have a great weekend friends!!!

  4. I keep seeing some of my favorite bloggers/youtubers drinking tea, and I'm wanting to try it! Do you put sugar and milk in yours?The only tea I'm familiar with is sweet tea; I'm from the south!

    1. I truly have loved drinking hot tea since I was little! It's so yummy. When I was little I did use milk and sugar. But now I just drink it plain! Oh girl I hear ya! I am from SC so I know (and love) me some sweet tea!!
