Friday favorites/ things I’m swooning over.

Happy Friday!  The first week back to work after vacation is always a tough one!  I am excited that this week is now over and I am fully caught up (sort of).  Looking forward to the weekend, especially since it’s going to be a whopping 50 degrees in Massachusetts tomorrow, yippee! Hoping to do something fun outside!

I am excited to share 5 of my favorite things with you today:

Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Pumpkin Fig Granola


I like pretty much anything Pumpkin flavored and this Granola hits the spot.  I honestly like all of the Purely Elizabeth Flavors and I like the ingredients even more. I discovered this at wholefoods one day and now it’s the only granola I buy! Best of all, it’s non GMO and sweetened with organic coconut sugar, a low-glycemic, nutrient rich sweetener.  Purely Elizabeth just came out with Hot Ancient Grain Cereal- can’t wait to try it!


Aqua Sphere Kaiman Lady Swim Goggles

Coming out of the water at Tri Fest Half Ironman 2013

These are by far my favorite goggles!  I have a small face, and for years struggled with my goggles falling off of my face in the pool.  I was having to adjust my goggles after ever couple of laps.  All of my problems were solved in the pool once I discovered the Aquasphere Kaiman Lady goggles!  They sit softly on my face and I honestly NEVER get water inside them and they don’t fog up.  I never have to adjust them, even when I’m swimming for an hour plus in the pool or open water.   Highly recommend!


Autumn Glory Apples


While at Whole Foods last weekend, I discovered this new organic apple in the produce section.  I LOVE apples and probably eat two a day on average.  They are my go to snack when I’m looking to curb hunger.  I got really excited to see this new variety and I must say, they are delicious and have a great crunch.  Autumn Glory apples have a very sweet, firm flesh with a subtle “cinnamon” flavor. Some describe it as tasting like apple sauce while some say it tastes just like apple cider; regardless of how you describe it, Autumn Glory apples have an intense “apple” flavor you’ll love.


Betty Designs


I just ordered my very first Betty Designs swim suit!  The photo above shows what I ordered, The Tropical Stripe Sexy Back.  I have been drooling over these designs and can’t wait to order more stuff come spring.

Where runway fashion meets sport. Betty Designs creates kick-ass race kits for triathlon, cycling and killer swimsuits. Created by Kristin Mayer (Ironman Triathlete) in California. I seriously want everything on their website.


Wine Sign


I got this sign in Key West and I love it.  I have it in my kitchen as a reminder that it’s ok to ‘wine’ a little:) Now that it’s Friday I am looking forward to having a nice glad of Pinot Noir tonight.
