The Friday Five

The Friday Five:

1.  My favorite Fall scent: Pumpkin Chai from NEST

2.  I am in LOVE with the Swift Long Sleeve from Saucony!  It’s so soft, has stripes, and polka dots!

3.  I’ve been drinking Hot Apple Cider Tea before bed…perfect for Fall nights!

4.  Speaking of bed, I’ve been tracking my sleep with the Sleep Cycle App.

It gives you graphs to track your sleep cycles and then uses an alarm to wake you up in your lightest sleep phase.

5.  I have a new granola obsession from Blissful Eats!  BONUS!!!  They were kind enough to give us a sweet discount code!!!  Use code: joy20 for 20% off your order.  (expires 10/16/15)

It’s Non-gmo, gluten-free granola and they also have Paleo, nut-free, and vegan options!  The no nutty chocolate chip is my favorite! :)

Happy Friday and Choose Joy!

    Speaking more of sleep and and sorry if it is probing – do you sleep straight through the night? I get up 3 times and am trying to get a handle on it! It used to be one or two times and now it is 3… In general are you a good sleeper? Thanks!

    btw – the Choose Joy tank is sooo soft. I wasn’t sure what the material was going to be like so ordered just the one. I wore it to the gym yesterday and I could swear people looked at the shirt and smiled. And I felt like I had to smile while wearing it. Ha :)

      I’m able to fall asleep quickly, but I wake up once or twice a night. It never used to happen.
      And, you made me smile big by talking about your tank…THANK YOU!!! :)

    Hot apple cider tea sounds delicious! And I love that long sleeve top–I’m a big Saucony shoe fan but have actually never tried their apparel out! PS I’m making your Brussel sprout sweet potato recipe tonight :)

    That shirt is gorgeous! I’m looking for a long-sleeve shirt for fall running (summer has disappeared without even saying goodbye! It’s freezing here now!). Perfect weather for yummy-smelling candles though :) Have a great weekend!

    Fleet Feet Memphis just got those Saucony shirts! Have you seen the ear warmer headbands that match?! I think I am going to get the shirt in the blue and the headband in that color above!

    I’m obsessed with SleepBot and my fitbit! Its become habit to see how well and how long I sleep through the night!

      Woohoo!!!!! Thanks again for supporting St. Jude!!!

    I’m intrigued by that sleep app but I know I’ll never use it because there are just some things I don’t want to know. Like, where my 15 year-old really is during school hours, and how horrible my sleep patterns are. 😛

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      That’s too funny!!!!

  • http://www.dixieruns.com Maddie @ Dixie Runs

    That shirt looks sooo comfy! I don’t think I would ever want to take it off!

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      I LOVE it!!

    Have I ever mentioned how much I love sleep?? I cannot go to sleep without medicine. I have tried every natural sleep aid, counting, therapy. My brain will not shut down, kind of sucks. I get at least 8 hours. It took a long time to give in. The nightmares I had from things I have seen played over and over. I don’t even know why I just rambled on. Sorry, anywho, I still have not seen what was in that bag last week. I really want to know what that white checkered, jacket like object is. Have a great weekend Jen!!!!!

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      I wish I loved sleep. I’m just not good at resting. I’m sorry to hear that you have such a tough time with it. It’s a white reflective jacket from Saucony. I wanted to make sure I liked it before posting about it! Thanks for the reminder. :)

      • Heather Davis

        It looks super cute and I need a jacket. I lost my favorite Under Armour Zip hoodie.

  • SD Mom

    I need that tea! Will be getting it STAT!

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      I hope you like it!

    Isn’t it interesting to follow your sleep patterns? I use a Fitbit and I’m addicted to checking my sleep when I wake up every morning; if only there were more of it-ha! Hope you have a great weekend, Jen!

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      Amen to that! My data only confirms that I need more sleep!

  • Kimberly Hatting

    LOVE that shirt!!!!!

    And my “sleep” cycle(s) would probably make me cry if I saw the data…ugh…

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      I can totally relate!

  • http://cupcakesandmiles.wordpress.com Amanda B @ Cupcakes and Miles

    I like that shirt a lot! And, I’ve wanted to try out a sleep tracking app, but I worry it’ll just drain my battery. Have you noticed that happening?
