Hi Friday! It's time for this week's Friday Favorites. The Florida Strawberry Festival is finally here! I'm looking forward to heading there with the girls hopefully this weekend. If not, we'll surely be there on Monday for Parade Day. They are so excited to go and see some of their friends walk in the parade. Here's my list of Friday Favorites:
As you may know, I recently received a free pair of the Mizuno Hitogami running shoes from Mizuno and FitFluential. I received the shoes while participating in a twitter chat. I'm a big fan of Mizuno running shoes, in fact I only own Mizunos. I normally run with the Wave Riders so I was really curious to see how the Hitogamis would perform. I've tried them on the road and on the treadmill this week and they are definitively a keeper. They are lighter than my Wave Riders and they feel sturdier like the Wave Riders 15. I must say I also love the color combination of the shoe. I wasn't sure about the shoe laces because they are like a rope, but they stayed tied just fine. If you are interested in winning free stuff, or getting great discounts on athletic equipment, check out FitFluential.
My girls love Lucky Charms, but I'm not sure I like all of the ingredients. I saw Three Sisters Marshmallow Oaties while shopping at Whole Foods Market a while back. They were on sale buy one, get one free so I felt better about buying them in case my girls did not like them. They are all natural sweetened whole grain toasted oat cereal with marshmallows with "no phony flavors or colors". They were a big hit with my girls. I've grabbed a couple of bowls myself and they taste really good. We are on our second bag and I will be purchasing this product again next time I go to Whole Foods.
Michaels Stores Craft Classes
Learning how to knit has been on my to do list for quite some time now. So, I was thrilled when my daughter asked me if I could take her to a crochet class at our local Michaels. They've been going to Michaels on the weekend for Rainbow Loom classes, so I figured why not. I get to try something I've wanted to do for a while and I get to bond with my daughter. We had so much fun. The teacher was super nice and very patient. Apparently even though I'm right handed, I was crocheting like a left handed person. Zoe had a great time and she was super proud of her knitting. We've even knitted at home together a couple of times.
I hope you all have a great weekend. For more Friday Favorites, visit Heather at Housewife Glamour.
