Things I'm Loving Friday XI

Another week and another list of things I'm loving these days!

1. VegaBars


Becky mentioned these on her blog last week and offered to bring me a few when we met up this weekend. I'm usually not a fan of protein bars, and find most taste too chalky, but these were delicious AND kept me full for hours! Bonus! I ate one about an hour before my run last night and had no digestion issues. I tried the mint chocolate flavour and it was amazing! 

2. Starbucks Refresher Packages


It's no secret I'm a fan of Starbucks. I love my Chai Tea lattes year-round but it is nice to get something a little cooler and refreshing (get it?) in the summer. The drive-thru guy sold me on these earlier this week. I love to add it it one of my bottles of water in the afternoon for a little treat. Delicious! 



I came across this hat on one of the small businesses I follow on Instagram and had to have it! I even picked up the matching one for me but haven't worn it in public (or for photos) yet!  To be honest, I'm not sure I'm cool enough to pull it off!

4. Water Wow


Court introduced me to these a few weeks ago in her blog. They're Melissa and Doug my absolute FAVOURITE brand of toys for kids of all ages! We leave this in London's backpack/diaper bag and can pull it out if he needs something to do. The best part is, there's NO MESS!! Thanks Courtney!

5. This Book



Okay, so I just started it but I'm already in love! My mom picked it up a few weeks ago and I want to read it before I watch the movie. I've heard good things and I'm hoping to find some time this weekend to finish it! (I'm a speedy reader!)

So there you have it. Some of the things I'm loving lately! 

I have to share this photo from last night at the park. Approximately 1 second after this photo was taken, he licked this! Ha Ha! Kids!!



Well tomorrow is race today. The ladiesfest 8km in Lethbridge. I'm excited to have some fun and see if I can beat last year's time. Plus, there's flowers, chocolate and brunch after!! Can't wait!

What are you loving lately?
Any weekend plans? 
Anyone else racing?

  8. Good to know those Vega bars are good. I've only tried the Vega snack bars and they're really good! They're just a sugar bomb, but a "cleaner" sugar bomb… like it matters… Hahahaha

    I'm actually working on a Loving Lately post right now. So you'll just have to wait & find out. ;)
