Fab Five Friday

I stole borrowed this idea from Reads Recipes Runs. Since I still have nothing fertility related to tell you about I'll give you some fun, light reading on Five Fab finds.

1.  Bic Bands
I know I've mentioned these before but I really swear by these.  They really do stay in place through a run and keep the stray hairs from my sweat filled head eyes.  And to top it off, the owners are great. I'm a huge fan of "keeping it local" and buying from a small business vs. the Walmarts (sorry if your a chain conglomerate supporter) of the world.  For some reason my recent order was misplaced.  I emailed and they were awesome, apologizing for the mishap, sending it out priority AND including a FREE band. Booyah!

2.   Etsy
If you haven't shopped on Etsy your missing out. Etsy is a site where anyone can sell anything homemade. I bought a few things in the past 6 or so months..

This infinity scarf by BeardedOwlsHoot. It's gorgeous, I definitely did not get to wear it as much as I would have liked this winter

Gorg jewelry by the ever so talented Trista who I know personally and she's a sweetheart!

3.  Smoothies!!
Summer is coming up and what better way to celebrate than with smoothies.  Here are a few recipes:

The Fitnessista makes Smoothies
All Recipies

If you're like me and  lazy don't have a smoothie maker nor a blender try the Smoothie King (a chain I know). I had one in the airport (Slim-N-Trim Strawberry). mmm  Note: You can add extra protein. Bonus.

4.  Garmin GPS Forerunner 205

Whether you're a runner, walker, hiker or biker this is awesome.  It shows time, pace/lap/mileage (runners), elevation, tracks your path..there are 12 data points available.  When running I rarely leave home without this.

5.  Wild Tree products.  A friend is a consultant and I just bought the European Dipping oil duo and they are tasty! If you are interesting I'm having a book party soon (this was not a plug...really). Email me at nicolecoolman at yahoo.com if you're interested!


Cheers to the weekend!
