Friday Favorites – Love to hate, hate to love edition

Happy Friday friends!  How are you?  Did you have a good week? Any fun weekend plans on the horizon?  It has been a pretty full week over here, lots of work, baby stuff, workouts and general life things.  I am looking forward to a couple of fun things this weekend but hopefully will be enjoying some down time as well.

Per usual, I wanted to share some favorites of the week.  A little twist this time, I have a few things I have been having a little love/hate thing with this week, so let’s start with them.

What I am having a love/hate relationship with this week:

Orangetheory Hell Week:  by the time this posts I will be three workouts in.  It has been fun and challenging, but I normally spread my higher intensity workouts out a bit and I am definitely feeling them after multiple days in a row. PS, that second one looks like it might have been easier with the lower splat points, but really it was just more strength which doesn’t get my heart rate up as high.  It was still plenty hard.

Next up, these Belgium chocolate cookies from Costco:  the hubs brought these home earlier in the week.  They are delicious, but I don’t exactly need a giant container of cookies flirting with me every time I enter the kitchen.

Now on to the just love things from the week:

This Nulaxy Wireless In-Car Bluetooth FM Transmitter has changed my whole commute over the last few weeks.  It just plugs in and boom, I can listen to podcasts or Spotify in the car.  Also, it’s less than twenty bucks on Amazon.

Around the web, I have been eyeballing this sweet potato coffee brownie cake, which just looks like the perfect excuse to have dessert for breakfast.

I have also been loving all the Halloween party recipes from Felicia at The Starving Chef Blog.  They are just too fun and I wish I was having a Halloween party so I could try them out.

I have also been paying lots of visits to Shooting Stars Mag.  This blog focuses on book reviews, particularly young adult.  As you know, I am an avid reader.  I am loving all the new to me books that are reviewed, and have come across several that I am hoping to check out soon.

What are some of your favorites this week?  Any fun plans this weekend?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! -Em

  1. Brownie coffee cake is right up my alley! I followed your link and I were one of the ingredients is coffee flour! That’s new to me!

  2. Belgian chocolates… they are THE BEST. Before moving to Belgium I didn’t understand the difference…now…our new best friend is a chocolatier. Great job on the workouts too!!

  3. Those chocolates would be gone in no time at my house! That sweet potato coffee cake looks strangely delicious…. Enjoy your weekend 🙂

  4. This week I am looooving my beanie. The weather has cooled off in North Carolina and the early morning require a sock hat! My favorite! I’ve also recently fell back in love with my camera! Hallelujah for learning new things!

  5. That Bluetooth transmitter looks awesome! I finally have a car with an aux port so that I can plug in my phone for podcasts and such. Wish I’d know about the transmitter when I had my last car. It would have made my commute so much better.

  6. Those chocolates though! So good!
    I’ll have to check out the book review site. I’m always looking for a good book to read.
