Friday Favs

Well, hello there!

I took a couple days off from the ol’ blog this week. While I am not working a typical 8-5, I am quite busy with a few things I have up my sleeve. I promise to fill y’all in (it’s exciting stuff… at least I think so!) by early next year… Anyways, I spent the last two days checking off to-do lists and getting schtuff done.

Man, that feels good.

Since it’s Friday, and I love sharing a few of my favorites each week, I’m back for another edition of Friday Favs!

1. Have you heard of tsu yet? It’s a totally new social media site where YOU own the content you post and get paid for networking and sharing awesome stuff, like your blog posts and photos from the weekend. You need an invitation to join, so here is my link that will allow you to create an account and get to doing what we bloggers do best, social media: You should definitely check it out… Plus, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want more friends on tsu ;)

2. This post. I’m not super into CrossFit (I tried it, it’s just not for me – I’m a runner and pump’er by nature ;) ) BUT I know a lot of my friends are and well, who doesn’t want to be ripped like Rich Froning?! Anyways, Advo is gaining steam in the CrossFit world for a few reasons: 1) the products work; 2) they have a great performance elite line; and 3) Mr. Froning himself is an unpaid endorser. In this post, Katie covers a few of the products that she loves using for her WODs!

3. Also, this letter to non-vaxxers. If you couldn’t tell, I’m fairly passionate about this topic. Regardless of your stance on the subject, this post makes a good point on protecting those who cannot protect themselves… those with compromised immune systems like children with cancer, pregnant women, the elderly, newborn babies, and those with auto-immune diseases.

4. The new Peanut Butter Chocolate Detour Smart Bars – Y’all know how I love everything PB + Chocolate… These are no different! Plus, their nutrition stats pack some mega protein that I love. I definitely recommend these to anyone who loves a little chocolate-y, peanut butter-y treat every now and again :)

5. Stone Crab Festival! This along with kayaking and a few other things is on our agenda this weekend. A festival in honor of crab meat? Heck yes! I cannot wait to check this out :)

I’m linking up with Katie, Heather, and Clare again today to share some of my favorites from the week.

Whatcha up to this weekend? What is your favorite flavor combination?


  1. Your weekend sounds so fun! That festival sounds like the perfect fall activity. I have never heard of TSU. I’m definitely intrigued by it!

  3. The building I work in set up a (free!) flu vaccine day in a conference room, a literal 30 second walk from my office. I went door to door and NO ONE in my work group would go, and they all had the lamest excuses. And ESPECIALLY for being biologists and chemists (some PhDs!) bought into some pretty bad science. Plus, they the nasal spray in addition to the injection, so it was really 100% stressfree and painless. Gahhhh, why don’t people get it?

    • I want to scream at those people! Be like if your grandma or grandchild contracts the flu and dies, how are you going to feel?!! LAME.

  4. TSU is a new one for me! Will have to check it out. Have a great weekend!

    • Ugh, every time someone says something along the lines about not vaccinating their kids, I roll my eyes. Like really? Modern medicine is here for a reason!

  6. Interesting new social media site? You get paid to share your content? How does it work, like the style of facebook, or Twitter?

  11. I’m all about a crab festival. Crab is pretty much out of season here in the PA/NJ region now, so I think I’ll have to wait till next August for one of those. And this weekend I shall be working and studying, whomp. But next weekend should be fun with Hallowee shenanigans. Have fun festival-ing!

  14. A stone crab festival sounds awesome! As for my weekend – birthday celebrations :-)
    Sam @ Better With Sprinkles recently posted…Five Things Friday 10/24/14.My Profile

  15. We all want to know what you’ve been up to!! And I’m totally for non-vaccination for many many many reasons, but everyone is entitled to a choice. Hopefully that choice is backed by numerous clinical case studies.

  16. Haven’t heard of TSU yet, but I will definitely have to check it out! Have a great time at the Stone Crab Festival, sounds like something I would love. Eat some extra crab for me!

  17. That crab festival looks amazing. I love random events for foods. It was recently national dessert day, and I think I should have celebrated more. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  20. I went on a TOTAL mom-rant on a college girl working at our camp this summer who said she wouldn’t vaccinate her kids because she knew someone who “got autism” from them. Ugh. Seriously. Probably the same people who are freaking out about Ebola but won’t get a measles vaccine. Sigh…
    Kate @KateMovingForward recently posted…Friday Loves #23My Profile

  21. I’m definitely intrigued to hear more about what you might be working on in the background. I know blogging and work can take up a heck of a lot of time so to fit in something else on top of that, hats off ;)
    I’m going to check out Tsu right now, I haven’t heard about it and I would have thought given I work in IT I would have by now!

    Favourite flavour combo? Probably anything with chocolate and nuts is good in my book.

    Hope you have had a great weekend <3
