Hey guys! Nerri at La Petite Runner had a favorite things post awhile back, so I decided to shamelessly steal her idea and make one of my own. Too bad I’m not Oprah and can’t physically share my favorite things with you guys, huh?
This is not a sponsored post, as these are all products I buy and love, but if you want to buy some of them for me to love… I won’t stop ya .
The Bee’s Knees Peanut Butter
A few weeks ago, I got a coupon for Buy One Get One Free peanut butter on the Peanut Butter and Company Facebook page. We didn’t really need the peanut butter at the time, but it keeps forever and I hadn’t had the honey flavor in awhile, so I bought this at Walmart. It was super delicious and I forgot how much I missed it!
This should be available at your local Walmart, and you can find a $1 off coupon on their Facebook now (the buy one get one free one ran out of prints). The Cinnamon Raisin Swirl flavor is also a favorite of mine.
I even found a picture of me with these peanut butters from back in 2011 when Clay and I lived in Florence. We’ve been loving these for awhile, hehe.
Wild Blueberry Mountain K-Cups
These don’t need any creamer- they’re just outright delicious. I had a free sample of one awhile back and had to buy a 12-pack from the grocery store because it was so good. I’m usually not one for fruity flavored coffee, but these have converted me. The blueberry flavor isn’t overwhelming but you can taste a little hint.
My new Hollister rain jacket
Hollister had up to 60% off clearance on their website a few weeks ago, and since the rain just won’t stop here in Suburbia by the Swamps, I bought a new rain jacket on sale. It’s kind of a short jacket and can also work as a windbreaker, but I love it so far. The jacket is sold out on the website now, so I’m glad I ordered when I did.
And since Clay wasn’t around Wednesday night before I headed out to The Alley in my rain jacket, the best picture you get is this bathroom selfie (how very Myspace-esque).
Forget Candy Crush, my favorite Facebook app is definitely Bitstrips. If we’re friends on Facebook, you’ve seen me post the cute comics. A couple of people have asked if I’m drawing them myself but it’s the app- I don’t have that kind of talent.
Each day, they have new comics and you can design avatars of yourself and your friends and create the comics. It’s pretty fun but can be such a timesuck designing avatars, so don’t do it when you’re at work. Before you know it, you’ve spent hours on the site. They’re developing an android app as well.
This caption on this one was “Amy brings Clay a bouquet of awesomeness”. Hehe.
Do Yoga With Me
I love Charleston and I love my gym here (East Shore), but I still miss doing yoga with my awesome yoga class and teacher back at McLeod Health and Fitness Center in Florence. MHFC had yoga classes every single day, multiple times per day, and tons of classes in general. Now, I’m limited to twice per week with my current gym membership (they offer yoga twice per week), and I can’t always make those times.
I credit yoga for keeping me healthy and un-injured with all this running and could never stop, so I was happy to find DoYogaWithMe.com. It’s a website with video tutorials of yoga classes. The classes are various lengths and abilities, so you can always find something. Even if you only have 15 minutes (can we say break at work?), there’s a yoga class for you.
If you can possibly do yoga with an instructor, DO THAT. A good instructor guides you through poses and shows you modifications, so you stay safe and don’t get injured doing yoga (yes, it happens!). But, DoYogaWithMe.com is a great alternative for when you can’t get to a class due to a busy schedule.
I got this candle a few weeks ago at Bath and Body Works– they had an amazing one-day sale on the jar candles for $10. It smells like I’m baking something without actually having to bake something (side note… it does make us crave dessert sometimes).
What are some of your favorite things lately? Do you like burning candles around the house- if so, which ones and which scents?
