Favorite Friday

Is it me or did this week fly by?
It was like a blink and it was over with.
Gotta love short weeks.

Here are my favorites this week.

Be Grateful 

Every day on our commute into work,
Jenn and I say  three things we
are grateful for. It's a great way
to start out the day. A grateful heart
has more happiness.

Rise Up by Andra Day

I have been listening to this song non-stop.
It is such a powerful song. It's like 
my new anthem. But be warned, the video
is heartbreaking. It's a good
reminder to be thankful for what you have.

CND Shellac Nail Polish in Rubble

I got my nails done last weekend and this is the color 
I chose. I love it. It's like a brown grayish color.
Perfect for fall. Plus, it makes me hands look younger.
Always a win for me. 

America's Got Talent

This is the first season I have ever watched
and I have been blown away by all the 
talented people. The finale is Tuesday
and I'm so excited for it. I wish 
everyone could win, they all are that good.

Cinnamon Apple Crumb Cake

How good does this cake look?
I wish I had the time to make this.
Love me some apple crumb cake.

That wraps up my favorites this week.
I'm still shocked that the weekend is here.
I'm spending tomorrow playing tourist
in the city. Looking forward to that.

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

What are your favorites this week??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!
Best, Marie

  5. That cake looks delicious! Now I'm thinking that maybe I want to make a coffee cake for my breakfasts this coming week...

  6. Thanks for sharing that nail polish color - I am going to get my nails done probably mid week next week and I have a hard time finding colors LOL! I watched bits of AGT and I did like it this season! Have a great weekend!

  7. I usually don't really care for talent reality shows, but my husband watches AGT, and I'm kind of into it! There were so many great acts that got cut down for the finals, I'm interested to see how it all ends. Love your routine of sharing your gratitude each day!

  8. I'm obsessed with that song... That lady's voice!!
    I love AGT. I've hated seeing acts getting cut - they have been sooooo good. I loved the Edgar Family Band & was so sad they didnt make it to the finals.

  9. im trying to find an apple cinnamon grain free recipe but not having any luck. the one i have is with wheat flour (and it's amazing) but i'm not crafty enough to experiment on my own with coconut flour :(

  10. I love that youngsters the work day with three things that you're grateful for! What a great way to get focused for the day ahead! Have a great weekend!

  11. All hail the 4 day work week! Love that you and Jenn start your days off with things you're thankful for and YUM to that cake! Happy Friday <3

  12. The week flew by! I've been waiting for fall so I can try this CND color. My mom raved about it last fall and told me I needed to try it. Such a great color for this time of the year! Have a great weekend!

    xo, Rachel

  13. I love the idea of saying three things you're grateful for! I need to start doing that. :)

  14. Give me that crumb cake!!! I love that polish color, so pretty! Hope you have a great weekend!

  15. Lucky you the week didn't seem to go by so fast for me..LOL but the weekend is here so that cures all problems. Enjoy exploring the city and I'm sure that nail color looks fab on you!!

  16. America's Got Talent is so fun to watch! Have a great weekend!

  17. Yes short weeks are nice but they make the following week seem longer haha. I do this too sometimes on my commute when I have time to think but mostly I am using that time doing social media for the blog. And ooo that crumb cake makes me think of crumb buns that I had as a kid.
