Heyyyyyyy! How’s it going? I hope your morning is off to a fabulous start!

I love writing these posts, so here’s another What I’m Loving Lately for your viewing pleasure!

Buffalo sauce

I am totally loving buffalo sauce lately, and I am putting it on everything: eggs, toast with Laughing Cow, chicken, salads, potatoes, roasted veggies”¦ As Mal says, I’m back on the “sauce.” Haha! It’s funny because when I was pregnant, the thought of buffalo sauce (along with hot sauce and sriracha) made me sick to my stomach, but now it’s my favorite thing! Give me ALL THE BUFFALO SAUCE!


Well, ok, I always love Sephora, but I’m especially loving it lately””mostly because I went on a little shopping spree there the other day and bought a whole bunch of awesome new products that made me happy. Maybe it’s just me, but buying fun, new beauty products does something good for my soul! Haha!

Chicken Tortellini Soup

I made Chicken Tortellini Soup in the crockpot the other day and, oh my goodness, it turned out so well””like it was SO GOOD and definitely, definitely, definitely a recipe that I will make again. I pretty much followed this recipe, but instead of mixed frozen veggies, I chopped up some carrots and celery and then tossed in some sliced mushrooms and frozen corn along with frozen tortellini and chunked raw chicken, and spices. And just four hours later, it was done! The leftovers were awesome too! Definitely make this!!


Reebok YO-GA Hoodie

This hoodie is easily the most comfortable one I own, and I wear it ALL of the time. I absolutely love it.


Girls Gone WOD podcast

My new favorite podcast! (Here’s a list of my other favorites.) Joy and Claire, co-hosts of the Girls Gone WOD podcast, talk about all things related to CrossFit, but it’s not all CrossFit all the time. It’s actually pretty random and every week is a little different. Joy and Claire talk about their lives, goals, food, pop culture, and other silliness. I swear, they are always laughing about something, which makes me love their podcast even more. When I listen, I seriously smile and laugh along with them.

  1. Best. Podcast. Ever. Mostly because I feel like every episode rings true with my own life, and how the conversations go with my CF gals at my box. They are the best! I’d love if Reebok made a CF hoodie like that one – but I suppose I could just say I do yoga…

  2. I make your Bang Bang cauliflower all the time and my husband loves it! Frank’s wing sauce is always in our fridge now, ready for the call.

  3. Omg. Actually just tried out a cupcake ATM last week. The only downside is that at Sprinkles, it’s $0.50 more than the store price, but the convenience and the selection of flavors was awesome!

  4. I LOVE buffalo sauce! It must be Frank’s for me. I also love A1 & spicy brown mustard. Practically everything I eat has one of those on it 😉 I also just discovered Kraft’s olive oil mayo with black pepper – delicious, even though I’m usually a Hellmann’s user.

  5. ok, so funny”¦whenever i feel down, i ALWAYS end up in sephora! also, whenever i hear of someone i know going through a tough time I send them a sephora gift card. Ugh it’s the best…

  6. Amen to the buffalo sauce!!

    I love it on roasted green beans: roast green beans (thawed if frozen) tossed with olive oil and Trader Joes 21 Salute Seasoning in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes or so. Toss with parmesan cheese and buffalo wing sauce.

    The. Best.

  7. That article is amazing! It took me most of my 30 years on earth to figure out those things but life has only been better since I started living by them. I still occasionally worry about the apocalypse over silly things but it takes 10 minutes to snap back instead of three days!

    And definitely agree on the Sprinkles ATM! I’ve been to NYC like 3 times since they opened it and I keep forgetting – ahhh!
