Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! We made it -- Christmas is Monday! Hopefully, you're sitting pretty like me and have all your Christmas shopping and gifts wrapped up! I did 90% of my shopping online and probably owe the UPS and FedEx driving a big fat tip for all the deliveries they've made to my house over the last few weeks. Maybe next year I'll put a box of water and treats on the porch for them....if I can pull it together long enough to remember. Anyway, let's talk about my favorite things.

Kids & Christmas
OMG, did you see my throwback to Christmas post yesterday? Yeah, it was full of little old me at Christmas. Honestly, Emerson has been the cutest this Christmas. We took photos with Santa, baked & decorated Christmas cookies, wrapped presents (opened a few too), watched Christmas movies and read a ton of Christmas books. I would say it's been a December to remember.

Emerson's BIG Girl Bed
So Emerson's been sleeping in the queen bed in our guest room/my office for months now. Months! I finally pulled the trigger and ordered her this bed then sent it back because of the color. Loved it, but it was just a little too sophisticated for a three-year-old. BTW - Wayfair has a super easy and quick return policy. The second bed I ordered was a success. We assembled her bed on Wednesday and I'm happy to report she's slept in her room the last two nights! Now I just have to figure out what I'm doing with the rest of her room.

Favorite Meal/Snack of the Week
Ok, guys, this is two-fold. I've been munching on protein bites daily! But I switched things up. I used this recipe with quick oats and IdealFit's Dark Chocolate Raspberry Protein (psst.. they are having a mega end of year sale) and all I can say is I'm OBSESSED. I keep them in the freezer and pull one out whenever that sweet tooth hits. You'll thank me later.

Secondly, the Cilantro Rice Cauliflower Rice I made last night was pretty tasty! You better believe I'll make it again. FYI, I cut the avocado oil in half.

Best Workout Deals
Like I mentioned above IdealFit is having a killer end of year sale. Or you could head over to Eat the Bear and grab some Blueberry Muffin Protein Powder because it's amazing! (For 15% off use code: TiaraFIT)

Regarding apparel, Athleta is having their semi-annual sale! People run and stock up, stat. You best believe my cart is full. I'm currently eying this top, long sweater and this sweater too, this tank and this tank, this sports bra (it's one of my favorites) and these 7/8 leggings! Ok, let's be honest I want to buy everything.

Well, folks, that's going to wrap up today's Friday Favorites. Additionally, I hope you all have a Merry Christmas! Until next week! Oh, expect some big changes around here! I actually bought the URL for Happy Healthy Home!
