Loves Of Late

Hey there!  I thought it would be fun to share some of the thing (material) I’ve been loving lately.  I’ve seen similar posts from many bloggers so I have no idea who to credit for this idea.  Suffice to say I’m not claiming it as my own.  I mentioned last week that I want to take time to be appreciative and this seemed like one fun way of doing so.

Things I’m Loving This Week –

1.  The Natural Life air freshener my parents sent me.  My car smells like strawberries!

2. Cool Cola Gum from Hubba Bubba.  When I was a kid Hubba Bubba made a cherry cola flavored gum that rocked my world.  Does anyone else remember it?  There was some popular basket ball player on the wrapper?  They stopped making it awhile ago and I’ve searched fruitlessly on Ebay ever since.  But then on a trip to Toronto I found Cool Cola in a little candy store!  It’s 95% as good as the original and I’ve been chewing it like crazy this week.  But I only bought two packages so we’ll have to go back soon.

3. These oil-free cleansing wipes from Neutrogena.  My hair is at that annoying length where no combination of headbands can keep it out of my face and face washing outside of the shower is impossible.  These wipes have been a godsend for letting me go to bed without feeling like a dirt-ball.  And the pink grapefruit smell is delicious.

What are you loving this week?

Now on to things I’m loving today.  I love improving my physical fitness.  Or more aptly, decreasing my total lack of physical fitness.  My phone died during the night and my alarm didn’t go off this morning.  When I finally did wake up, I knew my workout would have to be a something’s better than nothing workout.  It was rain/snowing and sucky outside and I only had time to do one loop so I ran my little heart out.  1.2 miles in 10 minutes and 43 seconds.  That’s slow as hell but also a whole 1+ minute faster than Wednesday!

Something else I love is my recipe for Thai Iced Coffee Slush.  This twist on it is even better than the original:

1 serving of slush + 1 cup of skim milk = the best frozen coffee drink on the planet.

Small sidenote on something I don’t love – cold weather.  Remember how I mentioned the snow?  I carried that icy coffee in my bare hand during the walk to school.  While I was wearing this –

I’m an idiot.  My toes were so purple when I got to school that a classmate actually offered to drive me home after class.  (Thank you, Mike!)

I’m looking pretty good on the school front for the moment so I am going to head back outside to tackle some of the errands for this weekend.  Wish me warmth!
