Friday Favourites #1: Fashion, Clean Eating, Holiday Treats & Side of Inspiration

I started my day super early this morning - not because I was working out at 5:00 a.m. getting my fitness on. Nope. Not this mom. I was up at 4:30 a.m. trying to convince my 6 year old that it was night time, not morning, and had to get his effing ass back into bed and go to sleep. It didn't work. The kid is persistent, and he's allergic to sleep. I did manage to finally break free and get my 30 minute bad-ass workout in around 6:30 a.m., and that wasn't too bad because lucky me, I have the day off from work today - so I didn't have to worry about rushing through the morning and getting to work on time. Win!

So it's 9:30 a.m. on a super cold but beautifully sunny Friday morning. I'm 3 coffees and a protein shake deep into the day already, listing to the audio version of  You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life: In Less Than 30 Minutes by Jen Sincero.  I keep hearing how important personal development is soooo I'm trying it out and so far, so good! Aaaaand to add to this fabulous morning: the kids are at school and the hubby is standing in line at Best Buy waiting to buy the new Nintendo Classic. I'm all alone...perfect time to dust off this old blog here and share some fabulous things I have been swooning over all week!

This Barbecue Chicken Baked Sweet Potato Recipe. Get recipe here. 

This super comfy Plaid Boyfriend Flannel Shirt from Old Navy (I bought one in red and green). I bought it from but they have it on the American site too. Here's the link to the shirt on

I pinned this quote on Pinterest awhile ago but every time I read it I crack up...this is my life now.
I'm totally digging this hot chocolate guide...can't wait to try some of these this as the weather gets colder and we start decorating the house for Christmas! Get the infographic from

And lastly, while I embark on this new fitness journey (yet again) I keep reminding myself that while it takes 21 days to form a habit, it actually takes 90 days to create a lifestyle. I'm determined to make it to that 90th day and beyond.

What are some of your Friday fave's this week?


  1. I love that 21/90 graphic. I have to keep reminding myself of that. Your sweet potato recipe looks amazing! Jess at Just Jess

  2. I had a sleep allergic child too. Don't worry, the teenagers years hit and they go comatose till noon on the weekend. (You've got a long way to go though, so I doubt that's comforting lol)
    I don't even like sweet potatoes, but I'd eat that. :)

    Wait? The Nintendo is back? I feel an impulse buy coming on.

    That plaid shirt is so cute. I loooove plaid, especially flannel.
