Hi friends, happy Friday!
It’s time for another round of The Friday 5! Today I’m sharing a couple of my favorite items from Brooks, our cute holiday cards, the yogurt I’m obsessed with, and something that’s been a game-changer for my sleep. You can watch or read The Friday 5 below – have a great weekend!
P.S. If you want to sign up for my Free Friday newsletters, you can sign up here. You’ll get an email from me twice a month (that’s it!) with freebies, podcasts I’m loving, deals and more.
1. Holiday Cards – get $25 off your first order of $100 more
We set up our camera on a self-timer and took our holiday card photo in matching pajamas – even Murphy has a matching bandana! We’ve used Minted for our cards for several years and love it. It probably took me 10 minutes to create the cards – couldn’t be easier. I’m glad we got our holiday cards done early this year, and the shipping was quick, too.
I have a referral link for $25 off your order if you want to try it out.
I am obsessed with this Siggi’s Triple Cream Yogurt. They were on sale at Whole Foods, and I definitely got several. The lemon flavor is my absolute favorite. I often add ground flax and hemp seeds, and the yogurt is full of gut-healthy probiotics itself – a healthy snack if I say so. It’s higher in fat because it’s triple cream (yum!), but has 9 grams of protein. Even though I’m not typically a huge yogurt person, I’ve been loving this snack lately.
Mal bought me this gravity blanket for my birthday back in June, and it’s actually really helped with my sleep and anxiety. I put it on top of our comforter, and it just fits my side of the bed (Mal has no problem falling asleep – lucky guy!). I got the 15 pound blanket, and it’s actually quite heavy. If for some reason I sleep without it, I definitely notice a difference and don’t sleep as well. The cover is removal and washable, too, which is great. This is one easy thing you can add to your life to help you sleep better – highly recommend!
Every time I share workouts videos on Instagram, I always get questions about sneakers I wear. They are the Brooks Hyperion, and I love them! I think this is my third or fourth pair. They’re low to the ground, so you can run and lift in them – great for CrossFit style workouts. They are unfortunately being discontinued, so I’m planning to stock up during Black Friday sales.
I was devastated when I learned my all-time favorite sports bra, the Brooks Juno, was discontinued. One of their replacement styles is the Dare Crossback Run Bra, and I like it quite well. While the style is not very similar, it works great. It has a higher neck, is sweat-wicking, and is very smooth. I think it’s quite flattering, too (no uniboob here!).
