I’m sharing a few of my favorite things in this post.
Happy Friday! This week felt like it flew by. I was telling someone that time feels so strange right now. It’s either going by really slowly or really quickly. March felt like it went on for months, but July is flying by already. Has it felt like time has been slowing down or speeding up for anyone else?
In the typical Friday fashion over here on Get Fit Fiona I’m sharing some of the things that I’ve been loving this week. Read on to find out what they are!
Blueberry muffin recipe
I know it’s not a great photo, but these blueberry muffins were made the other day and they were so good! The recipe is from the Brown Eyed Baker (and linked in the previous sentence). If you have some extra blueberries I highly recommend this recipe. The muffins turned out perfectly. I know that some baking with fruit can end up a but mushy or soggy, but these muffins were really great.
I’ve actually had to start eating just halves of them instead of whole muffins because I’ve found myself eating multiple muffins each day. They really are that good. There’s just something about being able to bake with fresh fruit that I miss so much in the winter.
Build-A-Box from Chick Advisor
At the beginning of the month I ordered a box from Chick Advisor with all kinds of goodies in it. I’m typically not a huge fan of subscription boxes because I like to pick what I get in them and I don’t want to be locked into a contract getting a box every month or even every quarter.
But with this Build-a-box I got to pick what I wanted to have included. There were 16 or 18 products to choose from, and I was able to pick 10 of them for my box. And the box is a one time thing. I’m not committed to buying anymore of them.
I’m most excited to try the Joico Weekend Hair Dry Shampoo (affiliate link), Meyer’s lavender candle (affiliate link to a similar candle), and Lashies Lash Lift Mascara (affiliate link) from Maybelline. Check out the widget for most of the products I got in my box – there were a few that I couldn’t find links for. I’ll be sure to share on the blog or on Instagram how I like the products as I try them.
The last of the peony plants in our backyard is finally blooming. It’s in a spot where it doesn’t get as much sun as the other two, so it always blooms a but later then them. It’s such a pretty shade of pink and I think it pops even more with the yellow center. The bees have been loving all of the peony flowers this summer. I almost always see a bee on them when I’m admiring them.
We get such long and cold winters here in Calgary that it makes the warm summer weather feel so much better when it’s here. It’s tough in the middle of the winter when it’s -30 C (-22 F for my American readers) that eventually the better weather will come. It makes me appreciate all of the warm weather things so much more, from the sun to the flowers.
As for my weekend, I don’t have much planned. I just started reading a new book so my plan is to spend some time in the backyard reading that. So basically the same thing that I did last weekend. It might not be very exciting but it’s exactly what I want to do. I hope you all enjoy your weekends too!
