Popped and Paired Fall Snack and Cocktail Pairings Featuring SkinnyPop

Original  (4.4 oz. Bag)
SkinnyPop has been one of my go to snacks for the last several years. It is a treat I reach for when I need a work snack, a travel snack or I know when I am going to be in a place, like a track meet, for several hours where there may not be gluten free options. It's light, yummy, non-GMO and gluten free...what could be Better than that? 

SkinnyPop created several fall cocktail recipes and then paired them with their flavored popcorn for their Popped and Paired series. What I love about this concept is that this is the Best easy entertaining tip. In addition, because SkinnyPop is so light on the calories, you can easily spurge on cocktails and balance things out with your snack without feeling guilty.

Friday Favorites: Best Sweatshirt, Moscow Mule Gummies, Hearth and Hand Preview, NJ Housewives and Pumpkin Spice Lattes


Friday is here! Back today to link up with ErikaNarci and Andrea for Friday Favorites. Here's what I am finding Joy in this week.

1) JoyLab Turtleneck Layering Sweatshirt

JoyLab is the new athleisure line from Target and it's amazing. I was in Minneapolis this week and checked out the new line because while it was crazy hot and humid at home...the Twin Cities felt just like fall. This is the Best sweatshirt for pairing with your leggings for hanging out in a hotel room but could also go with jeans. The fabric is light and super soft and the turtleneck has the perfect amount of slouch. Runs true to size, I took a small.

Workin' It Wednesday: Making Your House Cozy





Today I am linking up with Shay & Erika for their Workin' It series. October's topic is "Making Your House Cozy." I am going to do my Best here, because it is currently in the 70's and 80's ...and it shouldn't be this time of year. So as I write this post I will pretend that the air is crisp and that it doesn't feel like you are standing inside someone's mouth currently outside. Seriously, it is so gross out.

Flannel Sheets

We love flannel sheets in our house. I think it is the New Englander in me, but as soon as it is semi cool out I try to get our flannel sheets on the beds. 

Friday Favorites: Leopard Shoes, Feeling Better When You Are Sick, Good Low Cal Ice Cream


This week actually flew by. Back today to link up with ErikaNarci, and Andrea for Friday Favorites. Here's what I am finding Joy in this week.

1) When the urgent lines are short:

I woke up crazy early Saturday morning with my head pounding and totally stuffed up. I have been fighting this for over a week and knew it was time for me to get some Better meds. When Hockey Guy woke up, I told him he should eat a quick breakfast and get dressed because he needed to go to urgent care with me before they got too busy. Running Daddy was going to be at the track meet all day, so I needed my urgent care companion. I mentioned that we needed to get there early before the sprained ankles from soccer and fall ball got there!

The Blended Blog Asks: Fall Theme


Today I am linking up with the Blended Blog for The Blended Blog Asks -- a Good way to start a Monday. Let's jump into these Fall Theme questions.

3) Favorite Fall Sport to Play?


I don't really play any sports, but I watch a lot of youth hockey which has already started.

Friday Favorites: Best Glasses from Warby Parker, Pumpkin Bread and Pancakes, Good Sandwich, Best Sheath Dress and Good Chef/Better Person


Friday is here! Back today to link up with ErikaNarci, and Andrea for Friday Favorites. Here's what I am finding Joy in this week.

1) Grilled brie, turkey and dried cherries:

I mentioned earlier this week I am working on some Good easy dinners to help with the nights there is a lot of homework. Tuesday night we had grilled sandwiches to order with organic tomato soup (thank you Trader Joe's). I decided I wanted something a little different, so I made a grilled turkey and brie on gluten free bread and then added some dried cherries, they were actually cherry infused Craisins. It was so Good. I will be adding this to my easy dinner and lunch rotation all fall.

What's Up Wednesday September 2017


Why hello end of September. Where did you come from? Since this is the last Wednesday of the month I am linking up with MelShaeffer, and Shay to share What's Up Wednesday!


What We're Eating This Week

Monday-Shrimp tacos
Tuesday-Grilled cheese to order, tomato soup
Wednesday-Pork tenderloin with Tatefully Simple Slow Cooker Sauce
Thursday-Chicken pesto pasta
Friday-Pizza night

or Plan B---There is a lot of homework in our house lately, so I am also trying really hard to keep some really easy and healthy options on hand in case homework takes priority over dinner. A couple of nights last week we had grilled cheese sandwiches on really Good, crusty bread (including gluten free for me) with some pre-made organic tomato soup. Even a soup and sandwich can be made the Good Better Best way!
