friday five

Oh my word, am I happy it is Friday! The sun is shining, it's supposed to get up to 53 degrees for a brief time today, and I'm looking forward to the eventful weekend ahead. This is my first 'Friday Five' post, so let's jump on in... don't be mad it's not running related.

1. Have you listened to the new album by Foster The People – Supermodel? I'm jamming to it right now at work using the Spotify app (which is also something I've been loving for quite some time), and am thoroughly enjoying it. I find myself dancing in my seat a bit... not embarrassing at all. Check it out, if it's the sort of music you're in to (or if you're looking to branch out). 

2. Loving me some Bigelow Decaffeinated Green Tea this week. As you might know, I've been fighting off a nasty sinus infection these past two weeks, so I've been drinking a lot of OJ and tea, which helps soothe my throat and keeps my coughing at bay. I love the taste of this green tea mixed with a smidge of honey, plus, they say the antioxidants in green tea are good for you, so double score.

3. I'm a Naturebox subscriber, and one of my favorites snacks to get every month are the Italian Bistro Pretzels. I am a HUGE snacker. Like, I'm pretty much eating something all day long. I like Naturebox because they use high quality ingredients and are minimally (if at all) processed. I figure if I'm going to be snacking, I could at least be eating something a little better than, say, Doritos or Cheetoh Puffs. I'm also a very picky eater (read: not a fan of veggies, and most healthy food items do not taste good to me), so it's a relief to find a product that I think tastes good that isn't horrible for me. I'm sure there are plenty of healthier options, but let's take one step at a time, shall we? I also like that they give back by making donations to WhyHunger, helping fight poverty and hunger. It's always nice to patronize companies that do good things for others. You can also cancel/pause/change your subscription at any time... I love the lack of commitment that's required. If you're interested in trying it out, shoot me an email and I can send you a link for $10 off your first box (bonus for me, I'd get a $10 credit as well). I'm not sure why they don't have individual referral links anymore. Weird.

4. We are more than mid-way through March, and I've been laughing daily at my day-to-day calendar on my desk at work, which has quotes from the US version of The Office. It's nice to have something at the office that guarantees at least one smile for the day.

5. The series finale of How I Met Your Mother is in a week and a half. Ahhh! I'm looking forward to seeing how they decided to end it. I know a lot of people are annoyed or dislike the way this season has been going (that every episode is during the weekend of the wedding), but I've been enjoying it. I feel like the writers and actors brought their A game for this final season. Just my opinion. I'll be sad when it's all over, but I think it's the right time for it to end. Nine seasons was a good run.

So that's it. How about you all? Any snacks you are in love with? Did I do this 'Friday Five' thing right? New albums/bands you are listening to? I'm always looking for recommendations :)

Have a great weekend!
