Friday Favorites!

by Her Happy Balance on April 29, 2016

Good morning, friends – TGIF! I hope the last week of April (what? how?!) has been treating you nicely. I had a pretty productive week and I am definitely looking forward to a fun weekend with friends and family. It feels like the next couple of weekends will just be a string of ongoing celebrations with birthdays, Mother’s Day, graduations, first communions, and so on – and I am NOT complaining! I enjoy all excuses to eat cake!

Nuts 'n more

1.) The weather in Philly is finally consistently warm-ish, I will take highs in the 60s any day. It has allowed me to get some decent outdoor runs in, too! I did a 3 miler and a “long run” of 8 miles this past weekend. It’s been quite a few months since I’ve followed a consistent running schedule. I wanted to make sure I got my legs warmed up for the 10-miler Broad Street Run this weekend!

2.) The way to my heart is definitely through my stomach, and I love, love, LOVE trying new restaurants and cuisines. Last weekend I took a little trip to check out my future city and do some apartment shopping. I made sure to sample as many new-to-me restaurants as I could along the way, including a great tapas place called Barcelona. I consider myself a tapas eater in general, I always try to convince my dining mates to split a bunch of appetizers with me so I can try as many options on the menu as possible, so I jump at the chance to go to an actual tapas restaurant. We ordered tons of delicious food and it was my first time trying fiddleheads. Verdict: delicious!

3.) The last couple of months I have been going through Nuts ‘n More protein peanut butter like crazy! The toffee crunch and salted caramel flavors are my faves so far. I’ve resorted to buying it in bulk off of Amazon because I go through it so quickly. It is perfect with fruit after a lifting workout when you don’t feel like having a big meal or a protein shake but want a little extra somethin’ somethin’ for your muscles.

4.) Commence apartment furniture shopping! I went to the mecca of easy furniture shopping (Ikea) to scout out some ideas this week. I already have a pretty solid vision of how I’d like my new digs to look, but it’s always great to see how other people style rooms. Ikea is especially great because they have lots of ways to maximize a small space with stylish and inexpensive additions. I might have to steal some of their shelving and storage options.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Wish me luck taking on the Broad Street Run!

I really need to check out the Nuts ‘n more butters soon – I keep forgetting! I love the idea of a protein nut butter since I’m often rush snacking a spoonful to get me to dinner on a busy day!

It is SO good, Morgan! You definitely have to try it. I usually just eat it straight off a spoon or even my finger haha, I’m the worst. I just love that stuff.
