My Favorite Things // February Life

affiliatelinkdisclaimer

I cannot believe that February is almost over! I feel like it was just New Years and here we are, almost into March. February is always such a sweet month and there were so many awesome things that I did and tried.

After reflecting on the month, I realized that I’ve sort of forgotten all of the great things from previous months. Because of that, I wanted to start a new segment on the blog that highlights some of my favorite things each month. I think it will be a good way to reflect on the positive things from the month and it will also give me a chance to share about new products (or old products) that I used and loved!

I already have lists of my favorite things (accessories, apparel, and supplements), but I think doing it monthly and expanding on why things were my favorite will be really fun!

Each month will consist of 3 parts:

Favorite Thing
Favorite Moment
Favorite Food

 

So, right now, let’s start with February Favorites!

Favorite Thing| Quest Nutrition Products

While Quest bars are usually always on my favorite things list, they were especially useful this month. With all the traveling I did, I really depended on Quest products to keep me on track. For example, I traveled from 3:00 until about 8:00 on my way to New York and I never had time to get something to eat. It would have been really easy to grab some chips from the airport, but I packed some Quest bars and some Quest chips so I didn’t have to be limited to whatever the convenience stores had. I got enough protein to keep me full until I was able to get a late dinner (it was 10:00 before I ate!) and I was able to “cheat clean” as Quest likes to say. +1 for Quest bars in February!

Favorite Moment| New York City

It’s no surprise that my favorite moment of February was traveling to New York City for Valentine’s day. The view from our place was amazing, I got to see Phantom of the Opera on Broadway, I ate amazing food from Shake Shack, Carlos Bakery, and Katz Deli, and I got my picture taken by Humans of New York at the Met. It was such an amazing trip! I had been to New York twice before this trip, but this was the first time I went that I was able to explore the city on my own terms and I really fell in love with the city during this trip. I can’t wait to go back (in the spring or summer time) and see more!

Favorite Food| Eggs Benedict

February was the month of the eggs benedict. Nearly every time we went to brunch, I got eggs benedict. Something about it just makes my heart really happy. It’s such a comfort food. I also ate the best eggs benedict I’ve ever had this month. North Beach Bar and Grill on Tybee Island, Ga added smoked salmon to their benedict and took away the bread. SO good.

Overall, I’d have to say February was an amazing month. Hopefully March follow suit!

  1. Please tell me that restaurant has the gorgonzola grits recipe somewhere. That looks amazing! (Everything really does, actually!)

  2. I don’t know if the restaurant does, but I’m seriously considering trying to remake it myself! They were amazing!

  3. You got your picture taken by Humans of NY?!!? Did they say when yours might be shared? That’s really exciting! We just went to NY over New Years and it was so much fun. We can’t wait to go back!

  4. He posted it last week! We were at the Met sitting on a bench if you scroll back a few (like 10) pictures. Such a cool experience! I fell in love with New York during this trip!
