Friday Faves: Week 4

Friday Faves

Is anyone else one of those people who has so much to do all the time that when they get a break or pause, they instantly look for something else to try and get accomplished? That’s me. It seems like there’s never an end to a to-do list..there’s always something that can be done.

But then there’s those times where you get sucked in by Netflix and emerge five hours later after watching a season of Parks and Recreation. Speaking of which, I really misjudged that show by it’s name! I’m hooked.

One of my professors was talking about how he thinks it’s necessary to carve out a little time for yourself each day, week, whenever; where you do something that is solely to benefit you. Something that you normally don’t have time for, something you want to try but never have, or simply do nothing at all. Jenna over at Eat Live Run also posted recently about taking time to sloooow down.

Makes sense. And sound so alluring, doesn’t it?

I’m going to try it out this weekend. But until then, I’m going to wistfully long for the things on this list!

1. Pumpkin French Toast Muffins

Mmm…pumpkin. I was going to make a pumpkin french toast bake this weekend, but I think I might do this instead. I think making them into little cups rather than an entire pan is a lot less messy. Also, if you have not already, run to Trader Joe’s and buy their pumpkin bagels. Toast ‘em up, slather on some butter, cinnamon, and coarse sugar and try not to eat the whole bag. I dare you.
2. Caramel Nut Clusters
Caramel Nut Clusters: easy, delicious caramel, almond, peanut, pecan and chocolate clusters!
You know, I’m not one of those people who carries around raw almonds for a snack. There’s just something about the taste of them, or any nut in general that just not appeal to me on their own. HOWEVER. Give them a dip in some caramel and top them off with chocolate and I’m the #1 fan.
3. Bobble

I’ll be the first to admit, I was sort of spoiled before I moved to the city. Spoiled, as in, my house has a well. Now, I have to drink the city water and really despise it unless it is ice cold. I was originally going to grab a Brita filter bottle, but snagged this guy from Bloomingdale’s for $4. Looks so sophisticated, am I right? I will warn though, the plastic is a little thinner than I would have expected.
4.Tom’s Teal Pop Herringbone Classic

I’ve been holding out forever to get a pair of TOMS. I love that they give a pair of shoes to kids in need and they have rave reviews, but I just couldn’t bring myself to fork over the $55. Patience is a virtue though and they have free shipping and $10, so I think I’ll finally take the plunge. Hopefully I get to wear them a while before it snows #thanksminnesota
Sesame Chicken
Hello, beautiful. I’ve been craving some takeout like nobody’s business. I searched around on Pinterest, but couldn’t find a recipe that satisfied my needs. This one is budget friendly and has that glorious crunchy breading. These are the things that make me yearn for a stove.
Also. That resting thing? Try that this weekend.
