{friday favorites}

What does Friday mean?  Well, this week it means the beginning of Spring Break, which I am so excited for.  It also means finishing up some fun projects--three new beds--and I can't wait to see the end result.  It also means date night with my hubby, a long run, lots of family time, and hanging out with friends.  I ♥ Fridays!

Today it also means it's time for Friday Favorites...just a few of my favorite things.  They could be brand spankin' new, or something that's been around forever, but they are things that I'm loving right now!

{Laughing Cow Strawberries & Cream Cheese}

I am in love with Laughing Cow cheese, and I eat it all.the.time.  You just can't beat 35 calories for what tastes like 300!  My favorites are the Queso and Garlic & Herb, but the newest flavor, Strawberries & Cream Cheese is fantastic, and offers the sweet, in addition to savory.


 {Lift Off Spray Paint Remover}

So, I had a little incident this week, and needed to remove some spray paint--and a lot of it.  I thought all was lost, until I tried Lift Off Spray Paint Remover. I have to admit, I was skeptical at first, but it worked...and really well!  It removed every bit of paint off of something that I thought was a lost cause, hooray!The bottle says it will even take spray paint off of porous surfaces (like brick or concrete) as well as non porous surfaces. I haven't tried it yet, but I will definitely will now!


{Lint Roller}

I love lint rollers.  It's my favorite to dust lampshades, and other similar surfaces that collect dust. It also helps with cleanup of tiny items, like oh, let's say, a whole container of eyelets?  It's also helpful to keep in the car, when you need to clean up a few crumbs, or sand, or other things that make me crazy.  :)


{Spark People}

I've tracked my calories for years--sometimes better than other times--but pretty consistently for a long time.  I used to use scrap pieces of paper, or an old notebook to jot down what I'd eaten for the day, along with the calories, and calories from fat.  I discovered Spark People several years ago, and I've been using it ever since.  I love that it's {free}, that I can track everything quickly and easily, and that I can save all my favorites so I don't have to re-type them. Now I pay more attention to protein and carbs than I used to, and I can do all of that here! I also love that I can access it anytime, anywhere--very convenient.  I love it!


{Baking Soda}
In addition to all of its many uses, I'm loving baking soda for a new an exfoliant!  A good friend recommended this tip, and it's a great one!  Use it 3-4 times a week, and see what you think!


Have a great weekend!
