Some days it’s just best to stop and appreciate the finer things in life. Things like…
Finally making it to the weekend!
Waking up to a ready-made breakfast
Ahh, Peaches ‘n Cream Overnight Oats…
how you make my morning!
Realizing your workout from last night was better than you thought
Oh, it hurts so good!
(stupid computer won’t embed the video!)
Turning the radio on first thing to your favorite (at the moment) song
Even though the video is totally creepy :-/
Diving into a
trough bowl of fro-yo for dinner after a 10+ hour shift
My peanut butter & cake batter flavors were topped
with all the major food groups:
chocolate, cherries, and SPRINKLES!!
And speaking of sprinkles…
The excitement that comes when reading all the sweet comments on my newest kitchen concoction!
And finally, quiet evenings at home spent with some new friends

What is a finer thing you enjoyed this Friday?
Any big plans for this holiday weekend?
No big plans for me…debating on a TJ’s/WF’s run and I have to work on Monday…boo!
all of these things are indeed wonderful. Loving the cake batter theme. I’ve got to get on that. How did you make that sauce??
and you totally deserved froyo after a long shift. Absolutely!
The recipe for the “icing” is near the bottom of this post:
It’s super simple…just soaked cashews (soaked for at least a couple of hours so they get soft), maple syrup, vanilla, and a little milk all blended up until creamy! Deeeelish!
Heather, I am freaking out! I have a 5th grader and an 8th grader! Seriously, where has the time gone. I have lost it today. I wish I had your dinner…well, a dairy free version anyway. I think I need some party French Toast in my life this weekend. I hope TN weather treats you well and that you get to enjoy it!
Awww, they grow up so fast don’t they? I keep looking at my sis and doing double takes because as often as I try to remind myself that she is a WOMAN now *gasp* at 18 years old, I can’t help but see her as the little girl she was when I moved out of my parents house! Oh gosh, I think I need another bowl of the good stuff! I seriously need to break out my ice cream maker and get to making some of your fabulous dairy free concoctions! I hope you have a great weekend Sarena! Love ya!
Is the song you were talking about S&M? Because I just saw that video and ahhhhh!
Ugh, I just realized the video didn’t embed even though the pre-publishing preview showed it! Actually it’s Katy Perry’s ET…I’m kind of obsessed with it at the moment! 😉
Your breakfast looks so yummy! I enjoyed my exercise actually. I know that it is just another thing that will lead me to my goal! Cute post!!
That’s great! Nothing beats a really enjoyable workout! You feel good during and EVEN better afterward!
i love all things with sprinkles! you know I want that french toast! Happy friday lovely lady.
I love Katy Perry! She’s awesome! If you make a run to Nashville……lmk. I am going to try and run to the farmers market in AM. You going?
I was thinking about it…around 8?
Thank you SO MUCH for mentioning me in your post! You are so sweet. 🙂
You’re very welcome m’dear! I appreciate the shout out as well on yours! <3
Eeeee! Okay so it’s Saturday morning and not technically Friday anymore, buuuuuut the shout out TOTALLY just made my day 😀 Love you! But if we’re strictly talking Friday’s here, one of the finer things I enjoyed was an ice-cream date with my mum, which would have been even better if there had been colorful sprinkles… but there wasn’t 🙁 I know! What kind of ice cream shop doesn’t have colorful sprinkles?!
Blasphemy!! How in the world have they stayed in business WITHOUT sprinkles?!
I’ve really been loving your blog chickie! Your sense of humor and personality really shines through in your posts! And between that and your gorg pics, I can’t help but keep coming back! I had to share the love! 🙂
Do you need me to teach you how to embed a video? Haha 😉
Umm…maybe? I just don’t get it…it was THERE when I previewed the post before publishing!! Grr!
All this cake batter goodness is making me crave baking like crazy!! I love baking cakes, seriously, well it could be because I love licking the frosting off the knife. Minor detail. Anyway, everything looks amazing!!
Just discovered Running with Spoons and LOVE Amanda and her blog! Could her pictures be any more beautiful?? And in no way am I judging you for having fro-yo for dinner 🙂
Oh I know! I just told her the other day that I just can’t seem to get enough! Love her personality and sense of humor…and the pics are definitely an added bonus!
waitttt i LOVE RUNNING WITH SPOONS!! oh an that froyo is OFF DA CHAIN!! the finer things.. hum… i cnt think of any but i did just meet up with Gabriela and Freya!!!
That’s awesome! Two very lovely ladies that I’d love the opportunity to meet as well! I’m sure you had a great time!
no judging here!…I only wish that bowl of froyo had been MY dinner! 🙂
Hahaha, you’re hilarious! 😀
Weekend plans are very simple: get as much sleep as I can. Better don’t get up at all before Monday. Just the bed and me. 🙂
That sounds awesome! Every time I try to sleep in, I roll over and it’s 7:00am! I just can’t do it anymore!
ohh I love the look of that peaches and cream oats mmm mmm! 🙂
I’m interested to hear more about what you think of Jackie Warner’s workout, I’ve heard mixed reviews but I do like a good at home workout 🙂
We went out to the fabulous Chicago diner for our date night dinner last night and I had a vegan BBQ Bacon Seitan Cheezeburger and a piece of vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake. (I’m not vegan but I love the food!) mmmm I want more of it right now.
Hope you have a wonderful rest of your weekend! 🙂
haaa…. HOW did I miss this kangaroo? I honestly just choked on my coffee… HILARIOUS. hope you had a fab weekend, lovely lady!
