Favorite Things Friday

Another week has whizzed by! Only 15 days until Christmas – Can you believe it? I sure can’t! Fall always goes by too fast and it gets way to cold too quick, at least in Philadelphia!

Here are some of my favorite things for the week – I love sharing with everyone what I am liking right now! Enjoy –

My Penguin Sodastream is one of my favorite things this week. I have been on a serious sparkling water kick. I love this thing before it makes fresh sparkling water for me whenever I desire and I can flavor it however I like. WIN!

For more information on my beloved Sodastream, check out this post.

I am not sure I can go a week without posting about a type of headband I am obsessed with.


Today’s Favorite Thing Friday headband obsession is brought to you by another one of my obsessions – Lululemon!


The Skinny Satin Pirouette headbands are a little less fancy than the ones I posted about last Friday from Anthropologie, but they are great for everyday and working out. I love how they are adjustable so you can make them as tight as you want them! They fit every head!

They come in amazing colors too! Put this on your Holiday List!


Speaking of Lululemon, I am dreaming of owning this hustle tank. I love the pretty ruffles and the purple color! Swoon!

Another few favorite things for the week are some of my newly framed engagement pictures! I finally got around to putting a few of my favorite ones in frames and up around the house. They are so fun to look at! 


I love this one with the Philly skyline in the background.


We got this one blown up because its the exact spot where we got engaged. I love the white pillars!

Romantical picture, right??


We also got this one framed too. I love the heart frame that we got from our engagement party just as much as I love the white flowers in the background and my pretty purple dress (Thanks Sabrina!)

To check out the rest of our engagement pictures in a pretty slideshow, visit this post! I am obsessed with them all!


Another favorite for the week is Peppermint Tea. I have been drinking it like it’s my job. I love it so much this time of year!

Any other Peppermint Tea lovers out there? Anyone know of any good peppermint tea brands?


And last but not least…the Joe Joe’s


Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe- Joes to be exact.

Oh. My God. These things are freaking amazing!


Rich dark cocoa wafers filled with a very bracing peppermint vanilla filling, which has crushed candy canes throughout. Yes, it is filled with bits of candy canes. Feel free to start drooling now.

Pretty much heaven in a cookie.

There is even a facebook group devoted to their love for the Joe-Joe’s. Obviously I had to join it. I am hooked on these bad boys!


What are some of your favorite things for the week?  How is everyone’s Christmas shopping going?

    I love that picture of you both on the walk. It's gorgeous. Pictures of the couple are always one of the cute touches to look at when visiting their home.

    I love those Candy Cane Joe Joes! I put them in the freezer and see how long I can make them last. This year they made an ice cream with them as well and it is just as dangerous.

    Trader Joe's Candy Cane Green Tea is delish. Perfect for the times I want to eat like ten Candy Cane Joe Joe's.

    Candy Cane Joe Joes are AMAZING. I made oreo truffles with them a couple years ago – holy CRAP were they ever good.

    I MUST try those Joe Joe's! Anything peppermint, like bark, etc. is good for me! Love the seasonal treats!
