FridayFascinations: Things I am Loving this Week!

TGIF My Friends!  I am super excited because tomorrow, I am hiking with some super special friends.  I am excited because I haven't been outside and sweaty (is that weird?!) since the LA Marathon!  That said, I am excited to bring you the 5 things I am loving this week!

1.  SunButter!



I am so honored to be a SunButter Sunflower Butter Official Blogger.  Ever since I was diagnosed with the peanut allergy, I have become a huge SunButter fan.  In fact, my kids now PREFER it over peanut butter for their lunches!  With my new role, look for recipes and giveaways of SunButter!  YAY!!!

2.  THRIVE Fitness by Brendan Brazier


It is an all new edition of Brendan Brazier's book with a completely new fitness workout plan.  Did you know that Hugh Jackman is a Brazier devotee?  My favorite thing about Brendan?  Yes, he is the guy behind Vega!  And the recipes in the book?  Oh my YUM!

3.  Baked Chicken Breast recipe from Gimme Some Oven


I do meal prep on Sunday nights and I like to make a big batch of these chicken breasts for the week. Instead of the seasoning Ali describes, I use the taco seasoning from Trader Joe's.  Ali's method for cooking these chicken breasts makes them so tender and never dry.  We use them in many ways.  On salads, homemade burrito bowls or as added protein to a grain.  The kids love it too!

4.  The Captain Obvious Runs for President Campaign


This tongue in cheek take on the Presidential Campaign is pretty awesome.  He is all about the photo bomb and live tweeting the debates - all in running shoes!  Check him out!  He is sponsored by Hotels.com.

5.  Tropical Tundra & Vivacity from Spandits

The newest prints from Spandits have me excited for spring.  What am I talking about?  It is 80 here everyday!  But look how cute these prints are?  Don't you think that the Tropical Tundra would be super cute for a St. Patricks Day run?  And Spandits is talking about letting us order these thermal prints as skirts!  Say what and how cute?!  Remember, if you want to order anything on the site, use code SPANDITSLOVE for 10% of your first purchase.  And tell them Smitha sent you!

Before I forget, I am linking up with  MarCourtney and Cynthia - AKA the DC Trifecta, Nicole for Fit & Fashionable Friday and Jill for Fitness, Health & Happiness Link-Up!

So tell me, what are you loving this week?  Make any good recipes you want to share?

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom
