#FridayFascinations: Things I am LOVING Lately!

I want to start off this post by saying, I have lived in the new house for one whole week now and I don't think I have ever loved a house more in the 38 years I have been alive.  This house has so much character, my commute is 5 minutes and I love this neighborhood!

So my favorite things 1-15 are the house but I will give you my list of 5 other things that also made the top of my list this week!

1.  This recipe for Gnocchi & Chicken Sausage Vegetable Skillet from Iowa Girl Eats with an SD Mom twist!

It is seriously so good and make sure you use all the freshest produce for a pop of summer in a pan!

2.  This Cold Brewed Coffee recipe from Thug Kitchen

It is so simple it can't even be called a recipe but I have made it three times in one week and now I am addicted.  So so so good!

3.  Spending the 4th of July with Jenn and her family

When you have friends who are like family, you hold on to traditions.  We have spent a couple years now with Jenn and fam on the 4th and hope the tradition continues for ever!

4.  Wilde Snacks meat protein energy bars

I was sent gluten free Wilde bars for review purposes and I am fascinated.  They have super premium MEATS, chia seeds, flax seeds, quinoa, super fruits and veggies; all slow-roasted with some herbs and spices.  No lie!  Review coming soon!

5.  My new neighborhood

There is something in my new neighborhood called the 7 bridges hike.  My sweet friend Alexis took me on a 4 mile run and we saw 2 of them.  

the Spruce Street Suspension Bridge.  So scenic and so rad in the middle of the bustling city!

As always, 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 now your turn to tell me something good from your week!  I love hearing your stories too!

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom
