Good morning! Sorry I didn’t have this up at the crack of dawn for the early bird link-up friends. Scott and I have been enjoying our date night on Thursdays over the past few weeks, which makes getting up earlier to write Friday Favorites a little bit harder.
I’ll be sure to share all about our trip to Detroit after the weekend. For now, there are some favorites to get to!
What have you been loving this week? Every Friday, I share products, articles, funnies, and favorites that made me smile and invite you to do the same by using the comments section and link up tool below!
Friday Favorites #68: Week of 12/19
• wrapped presents under the tree
One thing that I miss around the holidays (besides being around friends and family from home) is having presents displayed under our Christmas tree.
The majority of our presents for loved ones are now sent through the mail, so a part of me misses having the collection of wrapped goodies around to admire until Christmas Eve or Day. Is that weird?
Oh well. I still get joy out of wrapping and sending them (with flatter bows).
• UA See Me Go Running Gloves
In need of a slim, yet warm glove for running the (chilly!) Turkey Trot last month, I found this pair of Under Armour texting running gloves at a nearby sports goods store the day before. I love them.
They have an inner coating to help absorb body heat, but are still my lightest pair of warm texting running gloves yet.
• How to Run Hills via Run Eat Repeat
• Panera You Pick Two
Are there any other Panera Bread fanatics out there? I know, I mention the cafe a lot. I swear, they’re not paying me to! I probably frequent a location around once a week and rarely get anything but the You Pick Two option.
Even split into half portions, they offer plenty of the menu item, and I love the variety. Last time, I ordered the Fuji Apple Chicken salad (my fav) with the garden vegetable soup. So yummy!
• digital coin counting money jar
Scott brought this digital coin counting money jar from The Sharper Image home a couple weeks ago.
I already had a spot to store loose change in the house, but I have to admit that it’s been nice knowing exactly how much our change adds up to.
I’m not sure where he got it from since I can’t find it on The Sharper Image’s website (maybe it’s an older product?), but you can find them on Amazon for just under $25.
• dark nail polish
I don’t always wear nail polish (I’m trying to get back into doing my own nails again, and often)… but when I do, it’s been dark lately.
O.P.I. and Essie have been my go-to polish brands for years. Their punny names and shades are the best!
• Meghan Trainor’s performance on The Voice. Adorable. (Love her!)
• pumpkin spice hummus
Umm… have any of you tried this Cedar’s Pumpkin Spice hommus?
That’s right, I said pumpkin spice.
At first, I wasn’t sure I would like it. Obviously, I have a special appreciation for anything pumpkin, but I picked this tub up from my local grocery store (Meijer?) out of pure curiosity last week.
You guys. It was gone in two days. It’s ridiculously good! I need more.
• favorite HWG posts
(Including more than normal to share all of the holiday themed fun!)
• Friday funnies
(For my fellow freezing friends out there…)
• hands-free jogging leash & giveaway
Surprise… today’s favorites post is closing with a giveaway!
About a month ago, I received this Hands Free Hipster Jogging Leash.
I explained to my contact that Roadie is not exactly what you would call a “tame” jogger, but I thought that a lot of you could benefit from the product, so I agreed to feature it and test it out by walking him with it.
Thanks to his frequent darting and stopping skills, I don’t trust him enough to actually go running with him hands-free (yet). We did, however, enjoy a couple of hands-free walks this week.
(Like my personal training/ninja outfit?)
It was comfortable and adjustable enough to fit most waistlines. I also appreciated the pouch on the back to store personal items like a phone, keys, or even disposable doggie bags.
I liked that the leash felt strong (I was worried about that), and put the just-in-case handle to good use when he saw something that peaked his interest.
Like I mentioned above, I don’t exactly trust Roadie enough to take him for a hands-free run quite yet, but maybe one day we will get there. Every time I go running with him, I see very well behaved dogs on a leash and think this giveaway would be perfect for them. Would any of you like to give this hands-free jogging leash a try?
Simply leave a comment on this post telling me what kind of dog you have (or what kind of dog your friend or family member has if you want to gift it to them!) and enter at least one additional entry into Rafflecopter.
(Feel free to share their name and something fun about them too!)
You have until Midnight E.S.T., Tuesday, December 23rd to enter the giveaway. The winner will be selected and announced Wednesday morning.
And speaking of giveaways, don’t forget to enter to win a $100 Visa Gift Card with Listerine if you haven’t already.
Have a great weekend!

After baskets of candy that result from Halloween, followed by the delicious pumpkin pie and sugary desserts that come along with Thanksgiving, keeping your mouth healthy is extremely important this time of year.
With the holidays quickly approaching, the last thing you want to be self-conscious about under the mistletoe or at the turn of a new year is bad breath! LISTERINE® mouthwash wants you to be prepared for anything with the best party accessory there is – a clean and healthy mouth.
Not-so-fun fact: Brushing alone actually misses 75 percent of your mouth! I don’t know about you, but I’m not feeling too confident with those odds.
I have been using LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash at least once a day for years, and I can tell an immediate difference in the overall feel in my mouth if I skip a day or two. Want to know my secret for bright teeth and a clean track record at the Dentist? LISTERINE® Mouthwash.
Cover the majority of what your toothbrush and floss are missing in under a minute of swishing a day with LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash.
Simply 30 seconds of swishing with 4 teaspoons of the liquid each morning and night can help you reach nearly 100 percent of your mouth and kill the germs that cause plaque, gingivitis and bad breath. LISTERINE® Antiseptic has been shown to reduce 52 percent more plaque and 21 percent more gingivitis than brushing and flossing alone!
Considering the majority of adult Americans will develop gingivitis at some point in their lives (and maybe not even know it), oral health is a concern we should draw a little more attention to!
“The Essentials” work together to pack the powerful punch to kill those hard to reach germs, and are found in the four essential oils that originally came from plant sources that have protected your mouth for over a century.
Derived from trees usually found in Australia, this essential oil acts as both an antibacterial and anti-fungal agent.
Identical to the menthol found in natural corn mint, this essential oil is known for its germ killing properties.
Identical to the thymol in natural thyme and ajowan herb, research continues to demonstrate this essential oil’s effectiveness against bacteria.
• Methyl Salicylate
Identical to the methyl salicylate in natural wintergreen, this essential oil is also found in chewing gum due to its fresh flavoring properties.
No other branded mouthwash has this unique, fixed combination formula that kills millions of germs on contact, all the while helping keep your mouth healthy and holiday party ready all year long!
