Friday Favorites

Yay, Friday!!! Does anyone else feel like this week just wouldn’t quit? I for one am so ready for this weekend!!! I don’t even really have anything planned, I just am excited to not be at work I guess!

Favorite Song: DNCE -Cake by the Ocean. It’s the weirdest name for a song but it just gets stuck in my head when I hear it and I am bobbing my head before I know it and trying to dance in my car. I cant help it.

Favorite Moment: Yesterday, Laura and I finally got to try the new hot dog place in town!!! Hot Diggity Dog is totally legit and I can’t wait to go back and try some more! This time I got The Birmingham. Next time I have my eye on the one with pimento cheese. mmmmm

Hot diggity Dog


Favorite Recipe: How delicious does this paleo nutella fudge look? Three ingredients sounds easy enough to me!

Healthy 3 Ingredient 'Nutella' Fudge Cups- Smooth, creamy and melt-in-your mouth fudge which takes minutes and has NO dairy, refined sugar or butter but you'd never tell- A delicious snack or dessert! {vegan, gluten free, paleo recipe}-


Favorite Bargain Purchases: I ordered the Ozark Trail tumbler from Walmart a few weeks ago. It only took about a week to come in and I haven’t put it down since. It literally goes everywhere with me. Why spend $40 on a Yeti when this is $10 and does the same thing.

Speaking of things I got at Walmart, I had to stop on my way home last week for dishwasher detergent and anytime I make the effort to go in there, I stop by the accessories. Check out this amazing $5 tassel necklace I scooped up!!! The color is perfect on Saturdays for Alabama football! (It’s not the best picture quality here but its gorgeous, trust me!)

–Curious about baby registry items? I shared the top items I registered for and a little reasoning as to why because I researched the shit out of everything. Are you surprised? Of course not.

–An Australian weighs in on odd American foods you can pick up at your local grocery. I have to say, most of these I wont eat either. Part of me wonders if Kristen is shaking her head.

Beautyblender is going to do a collaboration with Too Faced and Benefits? That sounds exciting! Truth be told, I am loving my Real Techniques $6 version of the Beautyblender though for those that are curious.

    Oh I’m interested in the Beautyblender collaboration! I’m with you – I like my $6 Real Techniques version! So glad the weekend is here, hope you enjoy yours!

    I’m obsessed with the Ozark tumblers, too! Walmart has been knocking it out of the park lately with their jewelry – so cute! Check out @whoawaitwalmart on Instagram – its addictive!

    I love that song but I don’t understand what it means at all. Cake by the ocean floor? Say what now? I am a HUGE fan of hot dogs. In NYC there are hot dog stands all over with delicious ones but I try to skip them because they aren’t the healthiest. A few times a year though I definitely indulge and it is so worth it! I have to try that Real Techniques beauty blender! I love their brushes! I use them all the time. Thanks for the tip! Have a great weekend, Mama! xo

    Oh I know that feeling of needing to do a food shop… it was a bit like that at the beginning of the week!

    Even though I don’t eat hotdogs, those fries on the side do look delicious!

    Happy Friday to you! I hope you have a great weekend!

    HAHA – I love that song!!!! I did look up what eat cake by the ocean means — and ummm, not what I was expecting, and in the unedited version, the Jones drops an F-bomb. I have to say that I was quite impressed with that. I can’t wait to go back to get more hot dogs!!!!

    Horizontal running is my life. The tassel necklace is cute! Did they have one in yellow or black? Ya know, for Iowa games 🙂

  • Reply carly August 12, 2016 at 10:29 am

    I’ve been wanting a tassel necklace- that one is so pretty! And I’m in need of a new thermos (or two) with the colder months headed our way soon.

    My uncle who is a big hiker was telling me about those cups from Walmart. He said they are ALWAYS sold out – online is a great option!

    Did you hear the story of “Cake by the Ocean”? … apparently the guy couldnt think of the drink “Sex on the Beach” & that’s what he called it 🙂 haha

  • Reply Audrey August 12, 2016 at 10:45 am

    Those memes and gifs are always perfection. That’s me in a social situation, too… hahaha!
    Yuuummm, I LOVE a good hotdog. Seriously, SO GOOD. We need a place like that local!

  • Reply kristen August 12, 2016 at 10:48 am

    okay but seriously, i don’t understand lucky charms! haha. honestly though, like you said, most people don’t eat that stuff anyway. plus, we have TONS of gross weird things like that as well, you know? every country has weird crazy stuff that confuse foreigners lol.
    okay but seriously when people want to eat out or go somewhere and suggest salad i’m like wtf? i’m not wasting my eating out on healthy food. boo.
    that tassel necklace is so cute! i rarely go to walmart but when i do, i totally browse because they do have some fun cute stuff. i just rarely go in there looking for something specific because their organisation sucks (at least at my local one) lol
    have a good weekend girlfriend!

    Too funny, my hubs has a Yeti but I got an Ozark and I swear it’s better, lol!! Yay for hot diggity dogs and friends to eat them with!! Love your memes, spot on…you are so good at nailing what we are feeling!! Happy weekend sweets!!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders August 12, 2016 at 11:16 am

    Cake By The Ocean is seriously the weirdest name for a song, but I love it too and can never get enough of it! That Nutella fudge sounds and looks so awesome, but let’s face it, I’m pretty much all over anything that has to do with Nutella! And hooray for finding great pieces for game days! I tend to always do that when I’m shopping too!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph August 12, 2016 at 1:32 pm

    I want to get an Ozark and test it against my brother’s Yeti.

  • Reply Erika August 12, 2016 at 1:32 pm

    I love that song too and I was singing it the other night and my husband asked if I knew what it meant. Naturally I had no clue so he told me… it is their PG way of saying sex on the beach! Duh! I just wasn’t cool enough to pick that up. Kids these days! haha

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista August 12, 2016 at 3:25 pm

    That necklace is so pretty, and I’ve never heard of the Ozark tumblers. What a great deal! That hot dog place looked amazing – YUM! Happy Friday birthday twin <3

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis August 12, 2016 at 7:16 pm

    The nutella fudge sounds so delicious yet probably dangerous to keep around the house! lol The tassel necklace is so pretty! I don’t think I own one accessory with tassels.

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee less talky August 12, 2016 at 8:54 pm

    wtf? i need to eat those “nutella” things…they look so good. it doesn’t help that I’m PMSing so hard right now 🙁

  • Reply Jenna August 12, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    That fudge needs to be in my mouth.

  • Reply Kay R. August 12, 2016 at 9:57 pm

    I need to try that fudge!! So much yum.

  • Reply Amy Getz August 13, 2016 at 8:02 am

    I love that song by DNCE too but it brings the rage that I can’t buy it in the clean version – because you know, my kids. So catchy though! Cute Walsmart necklace – you really can find some good faux jewelry there! Happy weekend to you!

  • Reply mandie August 15, 2016 at 9:53 am

    Cake by the Ocean will always remind me of our Spring Break cuz it was on repeat all the time when we were in Florida & it totally fit cuz we were, well, right on the ocean. Ha! 🙂

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots August 15, 2016 at 9:55 am

    I love tassel necklaces, when my favorite one broke I was so sad!! I love my real techniques sponge too, so cheap and works so well!

  • Reply Emelia August 16, 2016 at 6:46 am

    There’s so many catchy songs out this Summer and Cake by the Ocean is one of them…love! That hot dog place sounds yummy…we have a fun one here too but Chuck thinks it’s silly and overpriced…I say bacon and brown sugar on a hot dog and I’m in! He also got an Ozark and has been telling everyone under the sun about it…he loves his. I don’t use ice often, because I drink water all day long and so quickly that I don’t need the ice factor, but it does work well!
