Five for Friday: favorites!

You know, I thought that taking a day off in the middle of the week would make the rest of the week fly by, but it turns out that I was so very wrong - the last few days have dragged by. We've been getting to bed later than usual, and waking up earlier thanks to a certain kitten, so I'm kind of in zombie mode. (Also, having a kitten has made me terrified for the days when we have an infant - when do you sleep?!) I need my beauty sleep, friends. There may be a major nap on my calendar this weekend. Don't worry about it.

In honor of one of my favorite Friday link-ups coming back effective today, I decided that today's Five for Friday / Friday Favorites should be a few of my truly favorite things right now. Here's what I'm loving at this very minute!

Sam Hunt X2C LP-- playing this on repeat these days! His song, Leave the Night On, is one of my favorites on country radio right now, and I like jamming out to his other songs now, too! Looking forward to hearing what else he produces - he seems talented! His CD, Montevallo, will be released on October 27.

The Blacklist: Season 1-- y'all. Why did no one tell me about this show before?! (confession: they probably did. oops.) I am notoriously behind the power curve when it comes to new television shows (we won't talk about Breaking Bad, ok?), so this should come as no surprise. C & I started this on Netflix the other day, and before I knew it, we'd watched 4 episodes and it was way past bedtime. Love it so far! I was happy to see that Season 2 JUST started, so I'm actually not as late on this one as usual... who else watches it??

BodyCombat -- One of my all-time favorite classes that I have been missing since switching to my new Gold's last year, as it was never on the schedule at a time when I could attend. The new October class schedule brought a welcome surprise: a Thursday night class I can get to on time! Wahoo! I loved every minute of it last night, and I'm looking forward to getting back in there regularly.

OPI: Tickle My France-y-- this is my all-time go-to for a neutral nail for fall. I cannot handle regular manicures: it is guaranteed that I will chip my polish on the day I get them done. So I stick with at-home manis, and wear this color constantly. It's the perfect blend of pink, grey, and beige - I look cleaned up, without it being super obvious when the chips start. Winning!

Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Tea-- when the weather starts to get cold, I look forward to take a cup of tea to bed with me. This is my go-to bedtime tea - it helps to calm me down, and I truly do notice that I sleep better when I've had it. It's not too herby, and sweet enough that I don't need to add honey or sugar to it. Are you a tea drinker? Definitely recommend this one, if so.

Hope you have an amazing weekend! How's the weather where you are? It's just starting to cool off here, and I've heard we are going to have a cold front this weekend. C hooked up the gas to our fire place... just in time! :)

I've been doing BodyPump at my gym and have wanted to try BodyCombat but it's not on the schedule yet...crossing my fingers that it will be added soon!
