I feel like I’m running out of ways to express my excitement for FRIDAY!!! So I’ll just leave you with it in all caps and lots of exclamation points 😉 I have lots of random plans for this weekend, my husband’s football team has an away game tonight I’ll attend. Saturday I need to run some errands and look forward to making some good food and watching football. And on Sunday I’m so excited Soul Cycle is giving first time members a FREE ride this week, so I signed up for a Sunday morning class in DC. I’ve done a Flywheel class but never Soul before so I’m excited to give it a try. Be sure to check back on Monday for my Weekend Recap. But now let’s get to my Friday Favorites hosted by Heather, and be sure to read the end of the post to find out how you could enter the Quest Bar giveaway!
There is just something about the coldness and refreshing smell on your face when using a face mask. I’ve just recently become obsessed with using them and my friends at Purlisse Beauty sent me their Summer Glow Travel Kit to try. I also love any protection I can get from the sun whether it’s summer time or not!
I’m by no means ready for drastically colder temperatures. I’d be happy with 60’s and 70’s. But I am so excited to get out the oversized sweaters, boots, booties, and blanket scarves. Here are a few items on my Fall
Wish MUST have list.
You can buy dried pitted dates in any grocery store, usually by the produce or dried fruits and nuts. I have no idea how it took me so long to realize how delicious they were and how they can easily naturally sweeten any recipe. I love eating them plain with some PB and a little dark chocolate square. Or you could try one of these recipes: Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Covered Dates, Chocolate Almond Date Balls, Bacon Wrapped Dates with Goat Cheese.
Well I guess this is more of a love/hate relationship. I have been trying to do about three, one minute planks at the end of each workout session to really focus on strengthening my mid section and I’ve noticed a huge difference just in a few weeks. So I challenge you all to add at least one, one minute plank to the end of your workout routine. Bonus points if you can go longer 😉

NEW Blueberry Muffin Quest Bar!
Last week Quest released their newest member of the family Blueberry Muffin! Usually I am such a chocolate person when it comes to any protein or granola bar, but I am loving this flavor. It has dried blueberries and almost like a muffin crumble it, so yummy!
Back in July Quest released the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bar. And earlier this year their Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough bar was named America’s favorite protein bar. So since I’m a Quest Ambassador I thought it would be appropriate to giveaway one of each of these bars to a lucky reader.
