Every Friday Brings Favorites

Hey y’all! This was a short week and I’m not mad about it. Now that we’re past Labor Day it feels like things will get back to a routine. You know every Friday brings favorites. Some weeks there are more than others, some weeks have themes, and some weeks are a hodgepodge. This week falls into the latter.

Last Saturday Kent and I decided to go into San Francisco for the day. Usually when we go into the city we’re playing tour guide to friends and family, which we love. We’d been saying we need to go in and try some restaurants from time to time, so that’s just what we did. We also went to see the Painted Ladies. These were one of the sights I’d yet to see. Of course we also had to go to Ghirardelli for THE BEST ice cream…seriously, THE BEST! The hills in SF are plenty and steep and we earned every bite and calorie. LOL

Earlier this year I did a collaboration with Smile Brilliant and shared all the details in this post. After using the whitening system offered at my dentists office I had a lot of sensitivity. With the Smile Brilliant system I didn’t have any of that. I recently decided it was time for a touch up, so I used it again and was reminded of how much I liked this kit. I figured it never hurts to remind my friends of a good thing.

This is going to be a future post, but here’s a teaser. One of my very favorite candles is the Capri Blue Volcano. The smell is intoxicating, but these boogers are a little pricey. They burn down and there’s always a little left, so I figured out a way to make the most of them. Curious? Stay tuned. You won’t be sorry.?

Some things are so good you just have to share them over and over again. This is my favorite lipstick. It’s a cream and just like the name suggests, it stays all day…or least most of it. Even with eating and drinking, this stuff hangs in there. I like to buy it from Nordstrom Rack because it’s about half the price of other places, but they’ve been out of my color for quite a while. Well good news friends, it’s back! I’m stock piling it…it’s that good.

If you’ve been around here for a while, then you know a few years ago I did a round of the Faster Way To Fat Loss. Since going through menopause, I had about 5 pesky pounds that I just couldn’t shake. The Faster Way To Fat Loss is a program that implements several different methods to help reset your metabolism and maintain a healthy lifestyle. You can read more about it in this post.

Anyway (if you watch my IG stories, you know I love that word?). Anyway, one of the parts that was new to me was low carb days. Katie told me about these turkey burgers she’d gotten at Trader Joe’s, so I grabbed a box for myself. I cook them in a little skillet with some nonstick spray and sprinkle this Cavender’s Greek Seasoning on both sides. This combo is
D E L I C I O U S and has zero carbs. So winner-winner, turkey dinner. HA!

Since every Friday brings favorites, in case you missed it this week, I also shared two posts on H&M. One with clothing and one where I shared some items from their home collection. I’m not sure if the home items are available in store, but there is a lot to choose from online.

    Your dinner at Sears looks like it was delicious! Of course that ice cream looks even better – yum! I can’t wait for your step by step with the candles. It drives me crazy when there’s so much wax left and the candle won’t burn. Happy weekend friend – I am so excited not to be tracking a storm!!!
    xo,

      It was really yummy. That restaurant wasn’t at all what I expected though. It’s funny how you picture something in your mind. I thought it would be much bigger with a lot of wood paneling and booths. HA! Have a great, storm free weekend!!!

    LOL at “winner winner turkey dinner.” You are too funny! Totally agree with you about the ice cream at Ghiradelli! It’s so good! What a fun place for a day date!

    The food looks divine–yes, please! That’s it, I’m trying Stilla. I’ve worked some candle redos myself, looking forward to your method of madness (haha, just wanted to be silly)!

      LOL…you know it’s a method of madness. YES, try the lipstick. It’s great!

    Hmm. I may try those turkey burgers. May… not sure if I can program myself to like turkey burgers, tho! Haha! You are all about the seasonings and always share good ones to try. 🙂 I love that camo dress on you! You just reminded me that I need to do my weekly teeth bleaching for the month. 😛 I usually use Sensodyme a few days before I start it, though. How often do you bleach your teeth? I do it 2x a day for 2 days monthly for a little touch up. Your teeth look great!

      I really think you’d like them…especially with that seasoning. It makes them so flavorful. This was the first time I’d done a bleach touchup on my teeth. I should get in a better rhythm of it.

    I love those turkey burgers but since I do WW points, I found a turkey burger that is made from 99% lean ground turkey. It is sooooooo good and even picky hubby loves them! and they are 0 points! win win! Have a wonderful weekend! We will be cheering on our Fresno State Bulldogs, seeing a movie (Ready or Not- its a scary one) and Taylor and I are participating in our Sept MomTay fun runs…..the virtual SF Giants 10k! We truly wanted to be able to come up and do it in SF but she has been traveling a lot this summer and she and I are both just pooped. So happy we could do it virtually! xoxo

    I’ve always wanted to visit San Francisco! You are so lucky to be so close to the city! We have a Ghirardelli in Chicago and it is the best! Love that camo dress on you!

      It’s a fun place to visit…but I wouldn’t want to live there. LOL Oh my, I told Kent, it’s a good thing we have to make an effort to get to Ghirardelli…otherwise I’d need all new clothes. ?XO

  12. September 6, 2019 / 5:50 pm

    Happy Friday, Lisa! Next time, please take me to San Fran with ya!

    I need to add that lipstick to my arsenal!! I only like to get the stay on all day ones now. It’s so much easier and then it doesn’t end up on my teeth.
    XOXO

    You definitely earned that ice cream with all those SF hills. I loved seeing your trip into the city on instastories! Have a great weekend!

    What a fun way to spend a day! I love exploring “new” hidden gems in local cities. We eat a lot of turkey burgers in our house; I’ll have to look for some of that seasoning.

    • September 7, 2019 / 9:48 am

      Oh yes, it makes them so tasty. Happy weekend!

    I save some of my old candles and melt them down to make a layered candle! I can’t wait to see what you do with yours!

  20. September 9, 2019 / 8:18 pm

    The layered candle sounds like a really good idea. Love the camo dress you have there dear.
