Friday Favorites!

by Her Happy Balance on June 3, 2016

TGIF, y’all! What is on tap for the weekend? I am hoping for a low-key Friday night, some gardening and a little work on Saturday, then a picnic on Sunday if the weather holds out.

Friday Favorites

1.) Memorial Day weekend involved a trek down the shore to Ocean City, NJ for a little family time and R&R. I also had a chance to run one of my favorite routes while I was there. I did an 8 mile out and back from my house, up over the 9th Street Bridge, and then ended with my feet in the sand. The ocean was frigid! But dipping my feet in was refreshing after one heck of a scorching run. I need to get used to running in the heat, humidity and hot sun again.

2.) I decided to start keeping a gratitude journal a few weeks ago. Every night before I fall asleep I reflect back on the day and think of a few different things I am thankful for and write them down. Just a few sentences here and there. It is amazing how counting your blessings can turn any day around. We try to keep the good vibes rollin’ over here in HHB land 😉

3.) Gimme all the pickle everythang! I am a popcorn fiend, so when I combined it with my other obsession for pickles it was an instant favorite. This pickle popcorn by The Popcorn Factory is SO good. I have actually been picking it up at T.J.Maxx. So if you are ever waiting in line to check out and happen to spy a bag, definitely grab it. Bonus points if you share with me!

4.) I probably should have been studying for my critical care nutrition final while I was down the shore, but instead I decided to dive into a book. The Book Thief has been on my “must-read” list for a while now. My neighbor was kind enough to lend me her copy and it has been a real page turner. I am a big fan of historical fiction so reading an interesting perspective about WWII Germany has been really enjoyable. I am about 3/4 of the way through it and need to know how it ends!

Well, that is all she wrote! I hope everyone enjoys the weekend. Don’t forget to get outside and enjoy the warm weather with friends and family!

Pickle popcorn?!?! Sign me up! That would have been awesome when I was pregnant haha.

I loved the Book Thief. I had a hard time getting into the death character but other than that, it was so great. Prepare for some tears at the end. It is pretty sad! Watch the movie after too. I thought it compared well, even thought the book is always better.
