October is Nature's Funeral Month

Cool quote right?!?! And very true when you think about it. October is a fun fall month, with football, Halloween and crisp air, but it also brings the falling of leaves and the hibernation of plants and animals. I'm still in shock it's October, by the way. The holidays are right around the corner, are you ready ;)!

Alright, let's get down to my five Friday favorites from the week.

Favorite fall fashion statement of the week: How adorable is that shirt? I am all about dots right now and wish I could find this shirt, because it would be mine. But alas, the link is to an out of stock sign, boo!

Favorite delivery of the week: Remember when I mentioned the incredible Loft.com sale? Yeah, home girl CAHLEANED UP and I received one of my boxes of goodies earlier this week. Yes, I said boxes. I bought some great things and with the extra $25 off each $50, grabbed some more. Loft is killing it this season, I love pretty much everything. Here's my swag!

Favorite video of the week: Home girl is working it out!!



Favorite fitness article of the week: Whether you're a just starting out in fitness/health, working out a few times a week or a gym rat like me, *this article* is a must read. Basically it states you DON'T need to kill yourself to get a good workout, despite what the workout culture of today tells you. I'll be honest, I used to subscribe to the 'if I didn't' feel dead at the end of a workout it was a waste' mentality, but now I realize how bad that mentality can be, if it's the ONLY mentality you have about fitness. It's all about compromise and listening to your body, I still work my tail of in the gym and leave feeling sore. But, I also take more days off, because I know I need rest.

Favorite funny of the week: Food breakdown for the win! #hilarious

**linking up here, here here, and here this week**

*******
I'm also linking up for #Blogtember14 again. I don't think I'll be linking up all month, but Helene and Taylor have some pretty fun prompts. I might be taking today's a lil too seriously, but it's the truth. 

The one thing I can't live without…….Hands down, my family! I talk to one person in my family everyday and I don't know what I would do without them. My parents are the greatest in the world, my sisters are my two best friends and Le Husband is my person. I feel so blessed to have such an incredible support system, they are my rock!

Happy Friday, sweet friends of mine!!!!

V Mozzer said...

Family is a great one, and so important for so many reasons.

I took today's prompt quite literally though and chose an object rather than a person.

The cartoon of the food was hilarious!
