Good morning, friends!

Ok, there really isn’t anything super groundbreaking in this post, but sometimes those are the best ones, right? It’s just a random list of things I’ve been meaning to tell you guys – random tidbits and cool things that I wanted to share. I mean, hey, it’s Tuesday, we have a long week ahead, so let’s just have some fun this morning, shall we? Here we go…

Mal and I are fighting over the Turkey Stuffing Kettle Chips from Trader Joe’s. I bought a bag last week and it was gone in like 12 hours. This week, we bought two bags, but the fighting about who has eaten more has already started. Haha! They’re so dang delicious and taste just like Thanksgiving stuffing!

I ordered this hoodie the other day and it’s definitely a game changer. I can’t wait to wear it ALLTHETIME this winter!

I’m loving tasting plates for breakfast, lunch, and dinner lately. They’re such a great way to get a healthy variety of macro- and micronutrients into your diet. The one pictured below was inspired by my trip to Israel. Details here.

Still debating whether or not to try Stitch Fix? Well, here is some SERIOUS INCENTIVE for you! From now until the end of November, you can try Stitch Fix for the first time with a waived styling fee! That’s right. Stitch Fix is waiving the styling fee for anyone who signs up for their first Fix. Important! Styling fee’s are only waived when using this link.

IBD School from the University of Michigan. Someone shared this in a UC Facebook group that I’m a part of, and it’s probably the most valuable IBD resource I’ve ever seen. It’s super comprehensive and covers just about everything related to IBD – even medical marijuana and how to read your blood tests. I also love that it gives FODMAPs a shout-out, especially since so many GI doctors won’t give you a straight answer when asked about diet.

Speaking of IBD, this news is exciting: Simponi Maintains Long-Term Effects in UC Patients Results Show. In addition to Entyvio, my doctor was pumped about this new drug. Glad to hear that patients are doing well on it!

I got a new stand-up desk, and I am totally OBSESSED with it. It’s already changed the way I work for the better. Blog post about it coming soon!

I’m pretty sure this playhouse is what Qman is getting for his “big” Christmas present this year. He fell in love with it at a friend’s house, but I’m still shopping around and would love some recommendations. If your little one has a dollhouse/playhouse that they love, will you please let me know? 🙂

I paid $9 for 4 shots of espresso the other day. At the time, I didn’t want to make a big deal about it, but I’m still annoyed.

I can’t stop eating these Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies. For real. It’s only Tuesday, and I’ve already made two batches this week. They’re so delicious and so easy to make!
