Friday Favorites – Goodies by mail and so many things to try.

Happy, happy Fri-YAY! How are you today? It’s been a pretty good week over here and I am hoping for an even better weekend. Today I am sharing some of my favorites from the week. I always feel like I discover the best new things from you guys, so please share what you are loving right now as well.

If you have been stopping by for a little while, you may have heard me talk about how much I love getting goodies in the mail. Because of this, I subscribe to Love with Food and FabFitFun (<-referral links), which are great boxes if you are in the market.  Love with Food is all healthier snacks and treats (the babies know the box and are so excited when it arrives).  FabFitFun is a quarterly box full of beauty products, jewelry and/or accessories, and various lifestyle and fitness goods.

This week I was surprised with this lovely gift basket in the mail, congratulating us on our new home (thanks Kourtney!). We have been sampling the goodies all week. The babies were big fans of the pomegranate truffles that came in it.

I also received some beauty samples from my friends over at Influenster, who sent me these goodies free of charge for the purpose of review. I am especially excited to try out the new razor, I like the brand (Venus) and it looks fancy.  Blogger friends, if you are interested in Influenster and trying out new products, here is my referral code, check it out 🙂


This week I also enjoyed a fun little at home pizza date on Monday. I had planned to go workout, but we got home late, the hubs suggested pizza and all of a sudden we were enjoying this delight. I love a good white pizza. I did manage to get in a yoga class Tuesday and an Orangetheory class Wednesday, so it all balanced out for the week.

One bummer for the week. There was a donut themed 5k the hubs and I wanted to do on the 25th (the hubs had not previously had an interest in a 5k, so I was pretty excited the donuts swayed him). I went to register this week, and it was sold out. Womp womp. We may still have to eat donuts that morning, you know, to support the runners.

I feel like there have been a ton of fun things online this week. Some of my favorite posts I have come across are:

You have permission to.. this post from Sarah at Bucketlist Tummy is a must read.

This Spaghetti Squash Mac and Cheese bake looks so good!

I love peanut butter cookies, so I can’t wait to give these Peanut Butter Cookies from Skinny Fitalicious a try.

These Dark Chocolate Coffee Nut Bars sound like pretty much my dream snack.

DIY bath products are a favorite of mine, I would never have thought to add mustard powder to a bath product, but I really want to give this DIY Mustard Bath a try.

What are you loving this week?  Any plans for the weekend?  We have a few little adventures planned and are hoping to get more unpacking and house stuff done.

Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. I am curious about it as well. I have pretty fine hair, so I am hoping that it is light and doesn’t weigh it down at all. I will let you know how it is.

  1. What great samples!
    You should def eat donuts to support the runners– it’s only right. 🙂
    Happy weekend!

  2. I hadn’t heard of Influenster before … or donut-themed 5ks, for that matter. I might need to talk to some people around here. I’m thinking a beer and brats run would be mighty popular. 😀

    1. Thanks lady! I think I found a new one to do that day. Treats in the mail are the best! Hope you are having a good one!

  3. Lots of fun things going on over there! What a great start to March! I’ve really been wanting to try out FabFitFun so I might head over and sign up! Same with Influenster, that sounds like a fun network to join!
