5 Things Friday #7

What's up?! It's hard to believe my week-long break from reality is coming to a close already. I've been doing my fair share of indulging, and trying my best to balance it out with exercise. I've explored much of Savannah on foot - both running on my own and walking all over the place with the fam. I'd like to think I've earned my vodka tonics and sweet treats... :)

It's hard to narrow it down to just 5 things that I'm loving this week, but here goes:

1) Forsyth Park - Not only is it gorgeous, but it has playgrounds for the kids and a cafe with iced coffee smack dab in the middle. What's not to love?! It makes a pretty good running route too. 1 lap around the perimeter = ~1 mile. I know, because I ran 6 laps around the park on Wednesday!

2) So Delicious Chocolate Velvet Soymilk "ice cream" - So. Good. And not terribly unhealthy either. Just 130 calories for a half cup serving. Great find at Kroger. I definitely see more of this in my future.

Excuse the blurry picture - I was in a hurry to get my spoon in the container!

3) Big salads topped with chickpeas - We stocked up on some lunch foods when we got to Savannah, and we've been walking to Kroger daily to get some dinner makings. (BTW - I LOVE being able to walk to the grocery store!) Lunch just about every day has been leftover salad from the night before topped with half a can of chickpeas, a little light balsamic dressing, and a dash of salt and pepper. Yum! Why do I not bring this to work for lunch regularly?! Maybe I will start next week...

4) Honest Fizz Organic Root Beer - OMG! What an amazing stumble-upon! We were browsing Brighter Day Natural Foods just outside Forsyth Park (LOVE this place!) and I saw this for just 99 cents per can. Where has this been all my life?! Holy moly. Need to buy more of this, along with some Captain Morgan and some vanilla soymilk ice cream for some grownup root beer floats. ;)

5) Simplicity - The only intangible on my list this week. Our "vacation life" has been all about simplicity. Living in a 2-bedroom, with the rooftop deck as our only dining room. Spending almost no time in the car. Spending most of our time sightseeing on our own. The simple life is pretty good. Back to the complex life on Sunday...

Hope everyone is having a great week!

What are you loving this week?
