Five Things Friday {7/25}

Happy Friday! Today starts my weekend, Nathan is working from home, and the weather has been gorgeous here so we’re hoping to sneak out mid-day for some sunshine. We’re both ready for some relaxation.

  1. Tomorrow we’re headed out on another road trip down to Carmel. It’s one of the places we’ve been talking about exploring but just haven’t made the trip yet. Like I said, the weather’s been beautiful so we’re planning on leaving early, grabbing some lunch when we get there, and laying out on a blanket on the beach. Relaxation at its finest. [Maybe a bottle o’ wine, too?] If you have any suggestions for restaurants or other places to go in Carmel, we’re all ears!
  2. I recently received a pair of PRO Compression socks to review as part of the #KeepItTight Campaign with Fit Approach. To be completely honest, I wasn’t sure how much I really expected them to help. But after a bunch of shifts at work this week where I’m on my feet for hours at a time, as well as my workouts, slipping these bad boys on at the end of the day has really made a difference.

    The idea that compression socks increase blood flow to your legs has been proven and dare I say my calves and feet have felt less tired and sore by the next morning. If you want to give them a try for yourself, use code PINK at checkout for 40% off your entire order!

  3. I killed the salted caramel brownie brittle. Which, of course, means there was brittle dust at the bottom of the bag just begging to be sprinkled on some PB&J yogurt. Obviously. Best idea ever.

It’s always nice when you find a product that you love and the company turns out to be just as good as the product.

Coco-Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes

The new go-to pancake around here.

PB&J Yogurt Parfait

Daisy Cottage Cheese Oats

A little twist on my morning oats.

Banana Bread Granola

This didn’t stand a chance here either.

I think you get where I’m going with this.. so you’ll be pleased to know that I have yet another giveaway from my wonderful friends at Bob’s Red Mill!

Bobs Red Mill Honey Oat Apple Blueberry Granola Scottish Oatmeal

I really enjoyed changing up my oatmeal with these Scottish oats; they have a finer texture than rolled so it gave the oatmeal a much creamier consistency. I also really loved both of the granolas, but I think the honey oat was the favorite here. Sometimes simpler is better! And I always love when there are big and little chunks in my granola 😉
