Another Friday is here, and thank goodness for that. I’ll be presenting my master’s thesis tomorrow morning and then it’s home free! Well, basically.

Friday Finds + Favorites.

Well, we made it. It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving and I literally could not be happier!

The auto show this week was absolute chaos and my thesis is winding down to a finished product *thank goodness* so from here on out, I’d like to dedicate at least half of my brain capacity to thinking about holiday cooking, holiday baking, holiday decorations, holiday clothing and watching holiday movies. And, in light of all that, I’ve been pinning all the holiday goodness like a madwoman. I also wanted to share with you some of the grocery-store buys that have been saving my life lately, so you can find those first above all the links 🙂

Trader Joe’s individually-sized trail mix is the best snack to take on the go. It doesn’t have to be refrigerated, is super healthy and makes portion control easy!

Admittedly, I’ve been eating way too much of this. But Target’s organic popcorn is my favorite late-night snack ’cause it’s pretty healthy as far as dessert goes. Still working on the portion control for this one…

I won’t bore you with more complaining about the weather (is it confusing you guys too, or is it just me?), or talk about how school and work have me totally slacking at the gym, but I will say that I’m very, very excited for Halloween and lots of other things that seem to be in works.
