Hi! Happy Friday! I have some gooooooood stuff to share today…
one. If you’re a podcast listener you MUST listen to The Life Coach School podcast. It has seriously changed my life, my perspective, my habits and more. These three episodes have been my favorite this week and I always make sure to listen to each episode twice, especially if I’m multi-tasking. Listen to just one, I promise you’ll be hooked.
two. I recently made my favorite Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza using Trader Joes Cauliflower pizza crust and it turned out amazing. Well, that’s not true. I messed up my first pizza because I didn’t bake the crust it before adding all my toppings so it tasted more like a grit cake. But the second pizza I nailed. SO delicious.
three. Charlotte friends — have you eaten at Roots Cafe yet? It is so dang beautiful, the food is locally sourced and the menu is unreal. I’ve been twice now and have been impressed both times. This week I met a girlfriend for lunch and she ordered the Grilled Bacon Brussels and Ricotta Sandwich and I ordered the Bunless Veggie Burger. Both of our meals were absolutely incredible.
four. Matt has been away at a conference so I spent last night packing up all of my summer clothes and unpacking all my winter clothes. As I was pulling out my winter wardrobe I applied some advice from the aforementioned Life Coach School podcast and asked myself “would I buy this again?” If the answer was no, it went into the donation pile. If the answer was yes, I hung it up with the hanger turned inside. Once I wear the item I can flip the hanger around. If the hanger doesn’t flip by the end of the season, the item gets donated.
five. [GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!!] Earlier this week I got home a few minutes before Matt and the kids and lit a brand new Pumpkin Pie Spice candle from Pure Integrity. These soy candles are marketed as 50% more fragrance than any other candle and they totally lived up to their claim (and their Amazon reviews)! Within minutes the entire house smelled like a pumpkin pie and it was AMAZING — the perfect fall scent. When the fam arrived home Matt excitedly asked “Woah! What are you baking?!” The heavenly scent was that strong. Also, these candles are also the perfect gift for your Thanksgiving hostess!
