Happy May 1st! <—How did that happen?! Here comes summer! It’s definitely starting to FEEL like summer around here too. We reached 100 degrees yesterday, and I feel like that number is only going to climb over the next couple months. Us Phoenicians will be hibernating while you all are out playing! My only saving grace will be the pool!
Strawberry Chicken Spinach Salad
This salad… Oh man, it’s been making my taste buds super happy nearly every day this week. My stepmom made a really similar salad last weekend when we were over at my parents’ house, and I knew I had to replicate it at home because it was SO good. I topped a bed of spinach with rotisserie chicken, sliced strawberries, goat cheese crumbles, candied pecans, and poppyseed dressing. I made for it dinner earlier this week and have been eating it for lunch each day since! Not only is it delicious and refreshing, it’s incredibly easy. I need to make a point of buying rotisserie chickens more regularly – they make things so simple!
Peanut Butter & Co. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl
I just couldn’t stand to pass up this jar of Peanut Butter & Co. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl at the grocery store this week. I can never decide which flavor is really my favorite – Cinnamon Raisin Swirl? White Chocolate Wonderful? Mighty Maple? Dark Chocolate Dreams? I guess you could say I just love them all! I’ve been enjoying it on toasted English muffins and straight from the jar this week…so good!
Cover Girl Mascara
I had a lovely little package show up at my door the other day and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was some make-up from Cover Girl! It came at the perfect time because I was about ready to replace my tube of mascara. And well, I may have just found my new favorite mascara. This mascara, called The Super Sizer, makes my eyelashes look longer and fuller and you really can’t beat the pretty teal tube! I have yet to try out the eyeliner, but I have high hopes!
Cookie Crumb Protein Bites
Hunter and I spent some time after his nap doing some baking yesterday. He loves to help me in the kitchen, so it’s always fun to have my little assistant. We made some Cookie Crumb Protein Bites created by the fabulous Lindsay Cotter for the first time, and they will definitely be a repeat around here! Hunter couldn’t stop eating the batter, and I may have sneaked a bite or three while rolling the balls. We also made another yummy something using my favorite FlapJacked pancake mix, but you’ll have to wait for that recipe ‘til next week!
ProYo Frozen Yogurt
I recently had the chance to try out ProYo High Protein Frozen Yogurt, and I was quite impressed! Each tube of ProYo consists of 20 grams of protein and about 140 calories. Not to mention they are tasty and super refreshing! They come in four flavors: vanilla bean, banana vanilla, blueberry pomegranate, and Dutch chocolate. The Dutch chocolate has to be my favorite, but the others are just as tasty! And best of all…you don’t need a spoon to eat it!

Well, pretty much all my favorites this week revolve around food. I suppose that shouldn’t surprise you too much coming from this gal. Today’s gonna be a good one … it’s Friday (duh), I teach BODYPUMP®, and I have a hair appointment this afternoon that I couldn’t be more excited about! My roots need some attention in a bad way, and getting my hair done is one of my favorite ways to pamper myself so I’m going to live it up. <—Guess you could count my hair appointment that I haven’t even had yet another favorite for the week. Ha! Alright, I’m done rambling for now. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
Tell me your favorite…
- peanut butter (brand, flavor, etc.)?
- frozen yogurt flavor?
- way to pamper yourself?
