Sweet Friday Giveaway

Hi friends! How are you?


[The Bella ball says “Happy Friday]

It’s another lovely, cool day over here. It’s very refreshing to walk outside without being blasted with heat.


I’m a little late blogging this morning since I had to take my car to the dealership to be serviced. The good news is that they offered me a loaner car to have for the day, but I can’t find the emergency brake on it and keep picturing it rolling back from the driveway and crashing into our across-the-street neighbor’s mailbox.

I packed up some oats with almond milk and a crumbled Chocolate Cherry Torte Larabar to take with me to the dealership:


and couldn’t help but notice this surplus of almonds while I was scrounging for breakfast ingredients.



Since it would take forever to polish off that giant bag of almonds by myself, I think they’re destined for macaroon glory.

So how about a little giveaway?

Since the weather is cooling down, I thought it would be fun to talk about how you change and adapt your workouts in the fall weather.

For this giveaway, just leave a comment and let me know what your favorite fall/winter workout is. For me, I take more of my workouts outside to take advantage of the cooler temps, and when it actually gets to the freezing point, lots of hot yoga to warm up.


I’ll pick a random winner tonight at midnight and announce in my am post. The winner will receive a batch of macaroons in a flavor of their choice (chocolate, mocha, blonde, super roon, almond butter chocolate, Meyer lemon lavender).

Just to make things a little more fun, I’ll also add in a $50 Sephora gift card to celebrate all of the new fall colors and shimmer collections that are out.

Hope this makes your Friday a little sweeter!

See ya later today with a Family post <3

    I’m with you, Gina. I get outside as much as possible. We’re experiencing an Indian summer here in Michigan, so the weather has been perfect for running and tennis.

    I love running outside during the cooler days!

    While we don’t exactly have fall here in Texas, I can pretend! When the weather does eventually get cooler…I LOVE to row our beautiful lake. With the leaves changing and people out running on the trail around the lake, it makes everything so peaceful and wonderful being right in the middle of it all on a boat and getting a full-body workout.

    But I’m with you on the freezing point, Bikram yoga all the way!

    I love running and walking outside when it’s cool. It is so much more pleasant than in the summer! I also tend to do more gym classes like spinning in the winter when it gets really cold.

    I do love me some hot yoga in the fall, so nice to just lay in the hot room:) but I think my favorite is afternoon runs, the temp is just right and the trees are so pretty:)

    I try to take my workouts outside as often as I can during the fall. The weather is just perfect, and trail runs always feel extra special with the leaves changing colors. 🙂

  7. Molly on October 8, 2011 at 10:07 am

    I love rollerblading in the fall when its a little cooler and all the leaves are changing and then when the snowy minnesota winters hit, i love a good cross country ski!

  8. Stephanie on October 8, 2011 at 10:33 am

    Yay macaroons! I love running outside in the fall.

  9. Christina Webb on October 8, 2011 at 10:51 am

    Definitely love to run outside when it’s cooler – it feels like I can run forever!

  10. Heather on October 8, 2011 at 11:05 am

    I love walking outside too. Something about the crisp cool air with a slight breeze just gets me moving. I love fall weather………..oh and of course would love some macaroons 😉

    My favorite fall/winter workouts start with chilly runs in the fall, and as it gets colder I love just waking up early and doing some at-home video workouts in my dorm room. Gets my workout outta the way and I don’t need to go through the winter slush just to get to a gym!

  12. Grace on October 8, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    Love cool runs in the fall, and cozy/intense hot yoga classes in the winter 🙂

  13. Mac on October 8, 2011 at 2:29 pm

    Macaroons! I’ve heard such great things about your macaroons, but have never even tried one! Fingers are crossed over here 🙂

    My favorite fall workout is running outside. I know I do it all year round, but running outside in the fall is the best… leaves crunching under your feet, cooler temps, fresh air smell, site of colors changing….ahh love it!

  14. Pati Clark on October 8, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    Riding my Bike through the park. Macaroons look yummy!

  15. Surabhi on October 11, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    I actually donot work out outside even during the fall/winter because in India I dont really feel that you can actually go for a run and stuff on the road! So it is indoors for me and since I play squash that again isnt kind of outdoors!
