Fave Five Friday #1

Thank you all SO MUCH for your support on my last post! I really appreciate all the advice you gave me--if I'm having a 'bad body' day I'll definitely be looking back at those encouraging comments.

I felt like doing a fun post today and I've been seeing a lot of different appreciation-for-life-type posts around the blog world so I came up with my own: Fave Five Friday. Every Friday (hopefully!) I'll be sharing a list of five things I loved about the past week. So here we go for the first one!

1. Embracing my natural hair texture

Wavy is where it's at for me!
2. Brawnies (raw brownies) with Banana Almond Fudge Frosting (recipe below)

1/2 cup almonds (I used mint chocolate roasted)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup pitted chopped dates
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 banana
1 tbsp almond butter

Mix almonds, walnuts, dates and 1/4 cup cocoa powder in food processor until mostly combined. Spread raw brownie batter in small glass baking dish. Blend banana, remaining cocoa powder and almond butter until liquidy but thick. Spread 'frosting' over brownies and freeze until ready to eat. (Makes 8 small triangles or 6 larger ones)

3. Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale

4. Fashion photoshoot with my sister

So fierce!
5. Laughing out loud at "Bridesmaids"

Soooooo hilarious!

What was one favorite thing about your week?

  4. My week was pretty good, but my favorite thing was going out with my friends tonight. We went out for sandwiches/pita wraps and it was yummy!

    The semi-annual sale is always awesome :). I bought myself some lotions there tonight, actually. I'll be going back for undies and bras after the next markdown, as they always have my size left over :).
