Friday Five : Gilmore Girls

Happy Friday!!  We’re back for another edition of the Friday Five. Last week was the inaugural post of this new Run Oklahoma institution. So get set, and get ready for five things that topped the list this week.

theSkimm – The Daily Skimm is the email newsletter that gives you everything you need to know to start your day. They break down what’s going on in the world with fresh editorial content. theSkimm  helps me stay informed so I can sound like a smarty pants at work. It’s my most favorite thing getting dropped in my inbox (read: I get to much SPAM). Anyway, I love it and I hope you do too.


Halo Top Ice Cream – 100% all-natural light ice cream. 60-70 calories per serving, protein rich, sugar-poor, best ingredients, and tastes great. It’s not as creamy as regular full fat and sugar ice cream but it also doesn’t make you feel like sugar shit after eating it and Halo Top ice cream is packed full of delicious flavor. I tried the chocolate and mint chocolate chip flavors this week while binge watching the Gilmore Girls and you can imagine the pure guiltless heaven that it was.


S’more Halo Top, please!

Oiselle O Snap Tank – I coveted this tank for about a year and finally bought one (on sale). It arrived this week and I couldn’t wait to try it on. The O Snap tank is everything I hoped it would be. Flattering of the shoulders, cool geometric shape, nice color (I got the storm color), and delightfully soft fabric. Versatile enough to wear casually out on the town or for a run. Love. Love. Love.


Races2Remember – With fall half marathon racing season just around the corner, I placed my order for my pace bands from Races 2 Remember. They customize your pace for the race course elevation and offer a bunch of different race strategies. I’m a fan of the modified warm up band. Also, you get three bands per order, so you’ll have options come race day!


Gilmore Girls on Netflix – I must confess, I never watched Gilmore Girls when it was on TV. I don’t know why I didn’t watch it but it may have to due with the fact that I as busy being a Nickleback fan (I’m so ashamed) and having my own awkward “girl coming of age” moments. Regardless, I started binge watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix and I’m OBSESSED!!  I want to live in Stars Hollow, attend Chilton, and BE a Gilmore Girl. I only have a little over 3 months to watch all seven seasons before Netflix airs the reunion November 25. I’M SO EXCITED!!
