Fast Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! Here's a quick update on our week this week.

 The other day we noticed that our camper, that we gave a makeover to of the summer, had started to leak a little bit :(.  Luckily nothing too bad. We spent some time over the weekend replacing the sealants on all the windows. And we are just hoping that this is the end of the fixing that Kit will need done at least until spring when it starts to warm up again.

I did some running, of course, and gave running outside a try. It was chilly but manageable.  I think the end of outside running is coming for me though because the weather is getting colder and colder now. As expected, but not looked forward to. 

M spent some time this week being a cat.  She wore her cat ears around for a day and then added a ribbon to her foot as a paw after that (she also has cats on her pants). I'm so glad she has a healthy imagination and knows how to have fun with the small things. I'm pretty sure this child has never asked to be entertained or gotten bored in her life. She's constantly coming up with something fun for herself to do. I hope this lasts. 

Like I said earlier, the weather is dropping quickly around here. We had our first little snow (nothing stuck to the ground) the other day... Snow might be a small exaggeration in the picture below. It flurried for about 15 minutes and then stopped. But it's there. 

And now for some Friday Favorites:

I decided this year that I'm going to work on being more excited about the season change. Winter is a hard season for me for the most part. So in order to look for the good in the season change, I decided that I was going to make a list of the things I do like about winter and remind myself of them everything I start feeling a winter funk coming on. So far I could only think of hot chocolate. I'm pretty sure this is one of the biggest things that get me through winter every year. My very favorite way to have hot chocolate is made with milk and a scoop of ice cream added to it instead of marshmallows. I hear more and more people having it like this, and I'm really glad people are starting to understand, but let's just be clear on one thing, I've been doing this way before it was cool. I started doing this with my grandma (my mom's mom) when I was little and I've never looked back. 

I'm doing a workout challenge this month with Monica from Run Eat Repeat called Pile on the Miles. You can read all about it on her blog HERE. I'm really loving it because it's keeping me motivated, accountable and active. She gives us a photo scavenger hunt prompt for every day, this picture's prompt was stretch, which I need to do more of. 

I've been having some foot pain here and there so I've tried to make sure to give my feet lots of attention and love this week.  Only wearing shoes with good support, resting them when I can, icing them a little bit and using THIS body wrench to massage them out. (It comes apart and I roll my foot on one of the balls. This is a really awesome tool to use to loosen up your muscles and get those tight knots out! 

I saw this bread at our grocery store this week and needed to try it. It didn't disappoint. M and I have eaten at least one piece a day since. It's hard to stop eating it but it's also much more money than I normally spend on bread, so I pace myself on it.  I suggest it for toast. 

Who has some Friday Favorites to share?

Is it winter yet where you live? What is the lowest your city usually gets for winter?
