Happy Friday friends.
I received a gift from the universe yesterday when my Friday 6:30 a.m. client cancelled due to a stomach bug. My regular Friday 7:30 client had already moved her session up a day so I was going to have to go to the gym for just one 30-minute client. I was totally willing to do it because I’m committed to my clients but instead I got to sleep until 8 and got my first night of over 7 hours of sleep all week. It was wonderful. And needed.
Some “Friday I’m In Love” to share.
Okay, I don’t think I’ve bought rice cakes since college or something but I feel like I’ve been seeing them on people’s blogs and in their feeds more lately. I picked up a pack of organic brown rice cakes and have been spreading Cedar’s Organic Lemon Cayenne Hommus (<– new fave hummus flavor) on top of them. Such a yummy snack! I’ve also topped them with hummus, mashed avocado and turkey for a spin on a sandwich.
Can we take a moment to talk about Whole Foods Cashew Butter? OMG. I’m OBSESSED. I’ve been eating it on dates, on bananas, with apples, on my sweet potato bowls and straight up with a spoon.
We crushed this whole jar in less than a week. Seriously, YOU MUST PICK SOME UP if you have a WF in your area. The best part is that it’s only $8.99. Most of the other cashew butters I have seen have been $12+.
GT’s Sharing Gratitude Kombucha. I’ve always loved this brand of kombucha but it was my first time trying this turmeric, carrot and ginger flavor.
The sweetest “Friday Happy” from one of my yoga students. She comes to my classes twice a week and we always chat after class and catch up on life. She is so amazingly thoughtful and sweet and surprised me with two beautiful bouquets of flowers, almond butter, bath bombs, plantain chips and body lotion. Made my day.
I was able to make two big arrangements and two bud vases with the flowers and they are adding so much cheer to the house. Flowers (and friends) are the best! 🙂
These two. Always in love with them and their sweet sisterly love. <3
Baby time is always something to love. Gah, my friends have the cutest babies. We had a girl’s night last night and I got to spend lots of time cuddling this one.
I wrote a series of three posts for She Knows for a Vitamin Water Zero Campaign. Check them out! 🙂

TJs Cashew butter is where it’s at! Try that one next! (It’s cheaper anyway) 😉
I will! Thanks so much for the head’s up!
Those flowers are just stunning; what a sweet gift!
& cashew butter – YAS! On everything — great with dried figs, too. Mmmm.
Yum, you know how much I love figs!
I haven’t tried the whole foods cashew butter yet, but if it is as good as the almond butter Im sure I will be hooked!
I swear, it’s even better!
WF cashew butter is my favorite! The TJs one is sooo good too!
I am going to pick some up next time I’m there! I don’t make it to TJs as often as WF.
