Favourites Friday No.98

There are some weeks where when I hit Friday I think, “Well, I deserve this weekend.” And this week was one of those. From an insane amount of work and changing deadlines, to a terrifying nightmare, to still unpacking, I am ready for a weekend of friends and food.


I truly believe that the best way to replenish the body is to take a step away from stress and enjoy life, which doesn’t always mean sitting on the couch. Sometimes grabbing a meal with a friend – or two – or doing something active or social can give the body the break it needs. And this weekend – with a big Junior League social event and a few meals with friends – I know my heart will be good and full once Monday morning rolls around.

The “Rough Week” Survival Guide: A Favourites Friday

1. Nature’s Path Pumpkin Spice Waffles

While looking for something quick in the mornings, I ran across these quinoa-based, gluten-free waffles that literally taste like fall. They are so yummy and I don’t feel guilty eating them! Perfect for when I’m running out the door for a long day of meetings.

2. “Hey Now” Matt And Kim

This song will always win as the perfect pick-me-up for the commute.

3. Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Hemp Lavender Soap

I actually use this soap for everything under the sun. I use it as hand soap in my bathroom, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, and just about anything else you can think of for soap. And the calming lavender is amazing for freshly washed clothes.

4. Lasagna


I’ve been oddly obsessed with lasagna this week. To the point where I’m definitely making a homemade batch this weekend. I really love this recipe and sub in gluten-free noodles and veggie meat.

5. Minnetonka Moccasins

I love these moccasins so much, I would wear them everywhere if I could. They keep my feet nice and warm, plus are too cute for words! This week they made the perfect companion for late night Target runs, heading to a volunteer event with cold feet {literally}, and sitting on my bed eating lasagna watching Halloween movies.
