Happy Friday, lovelies!
With all this truth-telling, dare-taking, and otherwise serious-talk going on this week, I think it’s time to have a little fun today…with some Friday favorites!
Coconut Yoplait Blended Greek topped with Hershey’s Cookies & Cream cereal and fresh figs…and there may or may not have been a little healthy chocolate sauce involved post pic! 😉
I was starving the other day after a workout so I came home and whipped up a quick salad…little did I know after the first bite, I would literally be swooning! In the mix: romaine lettuce, diced chicken breast, fresh figs, sweet onion, walnuts, and bleu cheese!
The man-friend and I found these breaded chicken tenders at Sam’s about a month ago and split a package of them and until Sunday, there they sat, in my freezer, completely UNTOUCHED! Then I made some for dinner along with some roasted zucchini and leftover Blueberry Lavender Coleslaw and became obsessed…and now I’m all out of chicken! 😯
Obviously, I’ve been on a bit of a fig and chicken kick this week!
Debbie and I decided to do a little foodie swap and she definitely spoiled me with this box of goodies! Those Extend bars are G-O-N-E as of yesterday…so damn good! And I can’t wait to try the vegan cheese dip!
And now, with the
most important parts food out of the way, it’s time for some other favorites…
Favorite nail polish:
I picked up Essie’s Sunday Funday earlier this week and finally got a chance to try it out last night. I love it, but I think I love my accent nail even more: Nicole by OPI Give me the 1st Dance and Confetti Fun!
Favorite new show:
I totally got addicted to New Girl last weekend and have since watched every. single. episode on Netflix…in three days…seriously, HOW am I just now realizing how freaking hilarious this show is?!
Love this shirt…and I may go back for it, cutest erasers ever…makes me wish I was a kid again), and a happy answer on the Magic 8 ball…ha, wouldn’t you like to know the question?! 😉
And the hair…oh god, don’t get me started on the HAIRRRRRRRRRRR!
Oh you little asshole, why you gotta to be so damn cute?! 😆
What are some of your Friday Favorites?
Love New Girl too (I watch the free ones on Hulu). Have you checked on The Mindy Project? Those two are my favorites!
Oh no, I’ve not heard of that one…if it’s similar to the humor of New Girl, I’m sure I’ll love it. I’ll have to check it out!
I think you’ll love it…plus it’s based in a doctor’s office. She’s an Obgyn. I might even like it better than New Girl. Let me know…I’m curious!
Your salads always look amazing. I’ve been loving on fresh figs lately too, a new discovery for me. I think I may spy some delicious PB&J trail mix in your snackage pic – I’m envious!! Yum!!
Oh, & your cat is SO damn cute!!
Oh yeah? A new fig lover joins us!! Hooray! 😀 Don’t be too envious…the PB&J mix was alright, but the little berry yogurt pieces were SUPER sweet! I kinda want to try the PB&J mix from Emeralds Nuts with the berry-glazed almonds…that sounds amazing!
And I’ll be sure to let Tiger know he has a fan! 😉
Love the asshole ninjas thing…totally true! That’s why my cat looks more like a dog…and actually is a dog! Ha.
Ok is it just me, or does a line named Extend make you think of Extendz…as in … man-targeted helpful pills? Hahahaha oh gosh…slap my wrists please.
Bahaha! Oh you dirrrrrrty girl! And you KNOW I’m still on the last Grey’s book so when you say “slap my wrists”, all I hear is “handcuffs”! 😉
Omg the Half-pops! I’d seen bags at TJ Maxx, but they were like five bucks or something outrageous…I’ve got to find more of these little bags like she sent me (good for sharing AND you know, portion control since I’m a popcorn FREAK)! But anyHOODLES, they’re like partially popped pop corn kernels…enough where you don’t feel like you’re gonna chip a tooth, but with enough weight that you’re also not eating air! Frickin’ genius!
Umm, please go back and buy that shirt. That is too cute!! I adore anything TNBC 😀
And that is ALL I needed…looks like I’ll be heading to Macy’s this weekend! Lol
That confetti nail polish is adorable!! Want! And I know the lady who makes the vegan cheese! She lives near me, and is a member of our local Vegan Society! It is soooo good 🙂
Omg, how cool is THAT?! Small world!
You cat is way way too cute!! Love that nail polish colour!!
OMG you need to send me some of the cookies and cream cereal, alas we do not have this in Australia but it sounds so good!
(I think I may have overused exclamation points in this comment, in case you didn’t notice!!!!!!!!!!!) 😉
What?!?! You can NEVER have too many exclamation points…ESPECIALLY when cookies and cream cereal is concerned!!!!!!!! Lol
Fresh figs and blue cheese, yummmm! I’ve been craving figs, but seriously every time I go to the grocery store to pick some up lately, they’ve all been mouldy. 😛
I watched the first 2 episodes of New Girl and really liked them, but I didn’t get sucked in. I’ve been meaning to watch some more of the show though! I’ve just been too hooked on Game of Thrones lately haha.
Ugh, I’m such a sucker for cute nail polish! Love that color. I have never seen the New Girl. I’ve been too hooked on Shark Tank (guilty pleasure). Anyway, Happy Weekend, Heather! I hope you do go back and purchase that shirt.
Your chicken in the salad looks so freakin’ perfect!! How did you do it? I want to have that perfect chicken too! 🙂
And I love your cat, maybe sometimes they are little assholes, but well, not really, right? 🙂
My favorite this week is the lovely weather outside! Not too hot, sunny – perfect summer.
Well, in the case of Tiger, yes definitely a little asshole! Omg, he’s taken to walking around the house and “whining” for the last week…he doesn’t need anything, just wants attention, but I’m SO busy it’s hard to give him enough…plus he always has to be like THISFRIGGINCLOSE to your face whenever you’re petting him! Haha!
As for the chicken, I just threw a breast in the oven and let it bake (at 350F) for about an hour while I was cleaning and doing other things…didn’t even season it…then I just diced it up in little cubes!
Yay! So glad you like the goodies! And trust me that FROGs jar is already half gone. I swear I have no self control with that stuff!!
Let me know what you think of the cheese! I loved it!
Oh man, ALREADY?! I knew I should have sent you two jars! Hahaha! Have you tried the apple butter yet? I swear once I opened it, it didn’t last a WEEK! lol
Woot for Sunday Funday 😀 Currently rockin’ that gorgeous colour on my toes. And how has my cereal addict self not seen this cookies ‘n cream cereal that you speak of?! Clearly a trip to the grocery store is in order.
Happy Saturday, love! Hope you’re enjoying your weekend <3
Omg girl, you will DIE for it! Hershey’s cookies & cream bars used to be my absolute favorite when I was growing up and I swear this cereal taste JUST like them! And I may or may not have gotten some peanut butter cereal today to mix with it (Puffins just won’t do…they taste to “corny” Hahaha!)
I adore that nail polish. And that breakfast. Yes please.
I’ve never tried figs before. That salad looks amazing!
LOVE your nails! I have the sparkly accent finger going on right now too. It adds such a fun pop of color.
What a fun little swap! I spy Puffins…AKA: my crack. I force myself not to buy them 90% of the time because the box is gone in a matter of days. They’re too darn good!
Sunday Funday! I spent a ridiculously long time looking for it – assuming it actually wasn’t available around here at all as it looked like that – and it’s great. Who doesn’t like sparkliness? Though your accent nail really wins in the picture.
Spill the Magic 8 Ball question :)! You know I need [obviously] to know it!
Right there with you on New Girl though I’ll admit I stopped somewhere in between for no real reason but you might have just inspired me to get back into. My sister had been trying to convince me to watch it for ages until I finally started. It’s one of the few shows I enjoy(ed) and short episodes [read: short enough for me to watch in one go without constantly getting up and doing other things] are a bonus. Zooey Deschanel is awesome.
Oh, also: Get those erasers! Simply because you’re never too old for that and there are never enough erasers. I once got scented ones when I was younger but I’ll admit they smelled very chemical. Yet I obviously insisted on keeping [but not using ;)] them.
That last picture is SO cute. Hairy destructive ninja cuteness.
LOVVVVVVE the sparkliness…and yeah, I’m totally that girl who looks down and admires her manicure at LEAST once or twice an hour! 😉
I feel ya on the short episodes! I’m ok if I’m watching a movie/show WITH someone, but whenever I’m alone, if it runs too long, I find myself getting antsy…it could take me ALL day to watch one movie! Haha!
Scented erasers?! Omg, that takes me back to the days where I was friggin’ OBSESSED with scented markers! Man, I need to find some of those again…though I’m sure the scents probably cause cancer or something…you know people these days, always trying to ruin the fun for us easily amused ones! 😉
Tiger is adorable, and the cat comic was dead on. Try having three of them in the house and one is still a kitten. He (the kitten) literally tries to swipe the other two cat’s legs out from under them. The other two are not amused.
I love the flavors in your salad: figs, blue cheese, onions, walnuts…what’s not to like?!
I knew you’d approve of the salad! I swear, every time I make a “good” one, I stand back, admire it for a minute, and immediately think of you! 😉 And seriously? I can’t even IMAGINE having three cats…I’ve already threatened to throw Tiger out the back door like twice in the last week! Haha!
Fresh figs could be my favourite summer fruit. And I don’t know what that PB&J mix is, but I need to find it and devour it.
It was a mix of peanuts, raisins, berry-flavored yogurt “nuggets” for lack of a better word (haha). It was alright, but the little “nuggets” were a bit overly sweet for my tastes. Good concept though! I kinda want to try Emerald’s PB&J nut mix! It has berry-glazed almonds and honey roasted peanuts in it…omg!
in addition to the article I linked:
for your age, mental and just daily living (no exercise) you need 2500-3000+++ cals…yes…
and if like me u go all orthorexic and “healthy living blog” obsessessed, u will feel deprived and go to all the food…half the blogger world is denying their orthorexia…face it…
anyway, I do binge…its hard, just …u r not alone (i’m FAR off the track).
Your food always looks AMAZINGLY good!! I am loving the look of that breakfast!
i’m SO nervous to try figs for some reason. I don’t know how to pick them out, where to find good ones, what to do with them?!?!!?
So many figs! I just love them- all of this looks delicious!
I have been loving figs on everything lately!! I love that about cats!!! I am dying for a cat!
Really now? Well, I can remedy that whenever we meet up! Ohhhhh Tiiiiiiigerrrrrrrr?! Lol
I already knew figs make salads better, but the cereal thing is a new revelation. Although they have been fabulous in overnight oats. I’m thinking a fig granola has to happen in my kitchen soon…
Oh my gosh, YES!! Fig all the things! Lol

I have seen The New Girl a handful of times, and loved it every time…I’ve yet to be ‘sucked in.’ I blame this on Pretty Little Liars. So bad…and yet, so GOOD. 😉
P.S. You don’t have to be a kid to buy kid erasers. [Says the most uncool PhD student in the history of the world.]
Ugh, I tried to watch PLL, but after about the third episode, I wanted to throw stuff at the television screen…”just TELL ME ALREADY!!!” Lol
I absolutely LOVE new girl! And you need to try the half pops ASAP. They are SO good! They are the best parts of popped popcorn!
Oh I DID and I LOVE THEM!! I wasn’t sure what to expect at first, I thought they would be all hard and stuff, but you’re right, they’re perfect!
