Friday Faves

Happy Friday!

I hope you've all enjoyed your week! It's been a gorgeous week here in Kentucky. I have to say, I do love this time of year when finally the humidity is not awful and you can actually enjoy being outside again! Here are few of my favorite things of the week:

So I love my occasional pieces of dark chocolate, but I am absolutely loving the kind with almonds. Sooo good. Sometimes you just need chocolate, and this hits the spot! 

It was a little cool over the weekend-the perfect weather for a hike! I know that Matt will only go on hikes with me when it's cool, so I have to take advantage of those days! We went to a local park for a short hike and then just relaxed and enjoyed the peace and quiet by the lake. One of my favorite things is to be outside in nature!

With the cooler weather, I'm kind of getting more into Fall, even though I'll definitely miss Summer. I LOVE candles, especially the fall scents. This Glade pumpkin one I just bought makes my whole house smell amazing.  There is just something I love about opening the windows in the house and lighting candles!

I finally got my donut fix! I have been wanting donuts for so long, so we finally had a Krispy Kreme date last weekend.The pumpkin spice donut and this caramel latte donut are both pretty awesome. I just don't know if there is anything better than donuts and coffee! Have you had any good treats recently?

I've been taking my workouts outside this week since it's been too beautiful not to! It's nice to change things up and take a break from going to the gym. Since it's a deload week, it's perfect because I can just use my bodyweight and some light dumbbells, and I have everything I need. Asher likes to sit outside and watch me, but he is definitely not a fan of selfies. ;)
I just finished reading the diary of Anne Frank, and I can't believe I've never read this before! I have recently read a few fiction books based during the time of the Holocaust, and I've found that I really enjoy reading about people who lived and survived through that time, as horrible as it was. Have you read any good books lately?

Hope you all have a great weekend! Drop me a comment-I love hearing from you all(and knowing that there are actually people who read my ramblings)! :)


  1. I always enjoy your ramblings!
    oh and I also LOVE fall scented candles-pumpkin spice is my favorite!
    Hope you have a great weekend and you have some more beautiful fall weather!

    1. Thanks! Pumpkin spice is the best smell ever. Thank you, enjoy your weekend!

  2. I'm always reading your ramblings! I know what you mean about the Holocaust. I have a slight obsession with anything Hitler-related - you name it, I've read it. Most people think it's weird but it's my thing. I've been waiting my whole life to go to Auschwitz and I'm finally going in December!

    1. Yay! ;)
      I never knew much about the Holocaust until I read those books, and it now really intrigues me, too. Oh wow, that's so cool!

  3. Always Lindsay....sometimes I'm just too lazy to post....pathetic, I know! lol! I have been thinking about how much you like pumpkin when I've been making my morning pumpkin mochas. Trader Joe's has pumpkin coffee AND pumpkin butter (in a jar). I've been making one 8 oz cup of coffee, then adding 3 oz milk, 1 teaspoon of the pumpkin butter, 1/2 scoop of Muscle Tech Platinum vanilla cake protein powder, and using an immersion blender (hand-held) to mix it all up for 8 sec or so....It tastes exactly like melted down pumpkin pie!!!! You may want to try it soon. (Oh, and a dash of Trader Joe's own pumpkin pie spice to sprinkle in too!)..... ~Jenn

    1. Oh my goodness, that sounds amazing!!
