Friday Favorites: Snacks, Sledding + A Giveaway

Happy FriYAY!

Hope everyone stayed safe and warm during the Coast-to-Coast storm. It wasn't too snowy in Tahoe, but it sure was COLD! This weekend we're due for more less than desirable conditions. I foresee snuggles with Emerson, online shopping, Crossfit [always], meal prep [I'm so far off my regimen right now] and maybe a little work [yeah I know]. All in all, life is good.

Let's jump into a few things I'm currently loving.

Sledding Toddler Style
Having a toddler in Tahoe can be difficult at times. Especially when it's 11 degrees outside. Whelp mom went out and bought one of those plastic sleds! Basically shedding consists of pulling Emerson behind me while walking the dog. [Sorry for the bad iPhone photo]

Best Deal of the Week: Cleveland Upholstered Headboard
Someone please buy this! Unfortunately I don't need a headboard, but if I did I would snag one of these bad boys. You really can't beat the price! I'm sure it will go up so don't delay. And yes, you need a headboard. It finishes the room.

All the Snacks: Thrive by GoMacro
I'm a snacky kind or gal, which isn't entirely good when you work from home. Knowing I'll grab a snack [or two] during the day I try to keep a limited supply of healthier options. Think fruit, nuts and all the bars! I'm still obsessed with Thrive by GoMacro. I love GoMacro bars so it only makes sense that I love their new Thrive bars. My favorite flavor is Chocolate, Nuts + Sea Salt with the Blueberry Lavender a close second.
