Five Things Friday

Happy Friday!! I don’t know about you, but this week totally flew by for me. Another gloriously relaxing weekend is upon us, or at least for me!

Let’s kick this weekend off with a five random things Friday.

1. I actually cooked up a nice vegetarian meal last night! Hint: it involved spaghetti squash. The recipe will be up on the blog next week!

2. I thoroughly enjoyed our little early November snowfall we had this week. It was so light that most of it melted quickly and it didn’t mess up the roads and make for crazy traffic. It was just pretty and really got me into the holiday spirit!

3. As much as I love my smoothies, now that the weather is permanently chilly, I am no longer wanting my cold smoothies in the morning as often. I’ve been into the two ingredient pancakes and hot oatmeal this week!





4. On Tuesday I got together with my girlfriend Courtney at People’s Organic in Edina for a hot beverage and some major catch-up time. I got the morning elixir which was hot water, lots of fresh lemon juice, agave nectar, and sea salt. It made my mouth pucker the slightest but it was so enjoyable! I want to try to recreate it at home. As always, it was so great to be with Courtney. She is a ray of sunshine and such a good friend.

5. I am completely in love with scarves. This is not a new thing. When fall rolls around I am thrilled to reach for my fun scarves and use them as accessories to my wardrobe. They are so cozy yet don’t make me feel claustrophobic like a turtle neck does. I might have to add some new scarves to my birthday list! 🙂

  1. I can’t believe you’ve had snow already! Eek, I am so not ready for winter!

    Oatmeal is my favourite breakfast lately too. Okay, it’s always my favourite breakfast. Even on the hottest days of summer, I’ll still eat it.

  2. Even though the colder weather has rolled around, smoothies have still been my go to breakfast. I’m think about changing it up though. As it gets colder and colder, I can see my tastes starting to change.

    Oh, I’m SO obsessed with scarves! My scarf collection is growing rapidly. I wear one almost everyday!

  5. I can’t have smoothies for breakfast often anymore either – it’s just too cold! I still have them after workouts though 🙂
    My go-to breakfast during the winter time is hot pumpkin oats.

  7. I can’t wait to see the meal with spaghetti squash– yum!! And I liked the snow too but only because it didn’t stick around and I didn’t have to scrape off my car!! I am looking forward to going to the zoo with Luke this weekend… He is at such a great age for it right now!

    Thank you for the positive post! Sometimes, just focusing on the little things makes all the difference in a person’s outlook. Plus, the rice vegetarian meal looks quite good. Thank you (:
