Boo, I’m sick of being sick and I’m sure you’re sick of hearing me whine about being sick. So, because we all need a little reminder about why life is so great… here are my 10 favorite things right now.
1. Fall. Fall. Fall.
My goodness, I can’t tell you how much I love this season.
Brisk air, apple season, hoodie weather and football are just a few of the things that make this time of year my favorite. I can tell you this now because I have an ally on my side… it is also candy corn season.
Yes, I know how bad this is for you. And that it probably has nothing “real” in it. Oh, but it’s so tasty. That being said, I have forbidden myself from eating it until our wedding is over (I might have some with me for the honeymoon flight).
2. Wedding + Honeymoon
Yes, this may have taken over my life for the past few months… but I am so excited for our upcoming wedding and the honeymoon that follows.
I am so excited for the day when we are on the beach, enjoying our couples massage and watching the sun go down (yep, we are literally doing this)…
Well, duh. This is probably pretty obvious. But I love how running not only keeps me sane (necessary in NYC!) but it has connected me with some amazing people (like her, her and her) and it has opened my eyes to some amazing experiences (like this, this and this).
4. Endorphin Warrior Bracelets
I was the lucky winner of Jessica at Pace of Me’s Endorphin Warrior Bracelet and I am SO excited. These things are awesome.
Did you know that they come in different sizes? That might be the best part. I hate getting a bracelet that’s way too big for me.
5. Living in Brooklyn
I probably don’t say this enough
because I’ve been stressed out, but I feel so lucky to live in Brooklyn and work in New York City. It has been my dream since I was a little girl (as cheesy as that sounds) and I still have moments where I think to myself, “I really live here?!” While it’s not an experience that will last forever, it is one that I know I wish cherish til the end of time.
6. My wonderful fiance…
…who will be my husband in less than a month! It’s crazy to think that he has been part of my life since I moved away from home (we met two months into my freshman year in college). I never thought I’d find someone who makes me so happy… someone who knows what I’m talking about (or how I’m feeling) without even having to say a word.
7. Giveaways and contests
Soo I am kind of obsessed with giveaways and contests, especially all the great ones that the running community hosts! I love entering to win different things and try out new products. It’s a great way to expand your horizons with brands that you never would have tried or known about.
8. My cuddly kitties…
As if you don’t see enough pictures of these two guys on the blog, right?! I consider these two to be part of the family and cannot imagine life without them. While Apollo is the “sensitive, I want to be by you 24/7,” Jax is definitely the comedian who knows how to make you smile on even the worst days.
9. CLICK Espresso Protein
I did a review about this a couple months ago, and I absolutely love this stuff. I am not kidding when I say that it’s a protein powder that doesn’t taste like a protein powder. You. Must. Try. It. My favorite is the vanilla latte, but the mocha is fabulous if you do one scoop with half water and half milk. Such a great way to start the day! (And I don’t even like coffee.)
10. DIY Projects
I have done a TON of DIY for our wedding (and still have a few projects left!)…
But my board on Pinterest is filled with ideas I want to tackle in the future. I love DIY because I feel like it makes it that much more special because it does have a piece of your heart. One of the first projects I want to tackle when we get back from Jamaica and Spain is this one — how cool is that?!
