I'm not really a snacker but when marathon training causes me to constantly feel like I've been stranded in the woods with no food source for 3 days, I have to start eating more throughout the day. I'm now ridiculously obsessed with Kind bars - specifically, the dark chocolate and sea salt ones. The grocery store sells them individually, but they were running a sale the other day and I
I've used a few different products from this brand in the past, but none that ever really wowed me. I've been making a somewhat conscious effort to use more natural skin and beauty products, but the ones I've found and liked so far have all come with a pretty hefty price tag. I ran out of facial serum a few weeks ago when I was visiting Alyssa, and since it was hard not to notice that her bathroom was essentially a Yes To… ad, I looked into giving the brand another shot. I got the Yes to Bluberries serum, LOVED it, so I ordered a couple of cleansers, towelettes (for post-workout and taking off makeup at the end of the night), and some body wash. It was all extremely affordable, especially compared to what I've been using, and the results have been amazing so far.
So I just got Spotify...welcome to 2015, much? To be fair, Ben has an account so I've been piggybacking off his since last year, but I only ever used it for running (after I found out about the Offline Mode feature - genius). He listens to it all day at work and since 2 people can't listen at once, I just stuck to Pandora or iTunes throughout the day. I've been listening to the Indie Pop! playlist nonstop this week.
Sons of Anarchy
Another party I'm a million years late to, I know. This has been on Netflix for at least a year, maybe more, and Ben has been wanting to watch it, but for some reason I just didn't think it would do anything for me. We're running seriously dry on must-watch dramas these days while we wait for House of Cards and Mad Men to come back, so I was feeling desperate and finally conceded to giving Sons of Anarchy a try. One episode and I was hooked. I think we've watched at least one episode every day this week. No shame.
Gardein Chick'n Sliders
The way I finally tricked myself into going vegetarian 3 years ago was by using meat substitutes to make the transition. I don't like eating a lot of them and really don't eat that many these days, but I have a few staples that I like even more than I ever liked the real thing. I found these in the grocery store about a month ago and thought they were so delicious. Then last week I was talking to my vegan sister-in-law and she brought them up to tell me I had to try them (already ahead of you, Vic). Despite our similar dietary preferences and that fact that our conversations are usually at least an hour long, we actually don't talk about food very often, so that's how you know these things are the real deal. The only way they could be better is if they were a full-size patty, which apparently exists but so far neither of us has been able to locate this elusive treasure. You know where to find me if you happen to find them!
Bonus Fave: This Clip
This video has been on the internet for years, but it still cracks.me.up. Every time. I was in need of a good laugh earlier this week so I looked it up, and it totally did the trick. Poor Dana.

Happy Friday! Any favorites from the week to share? Plans for the weekend?!
