Friday Favorites

What’s up, mid-October?!?! Crazy, right? This weekend I am so excited because it is my baby shower weekend! My sister and sister-in-law ar emy sweet hosts and I am excited to spend some time with family and close friends. I also have dinner plans tomorrow night with my mom and sister, so fun! I haven’t seen my mom in a few months because her work schedule is so crazy so I am excited for that.

Favorite Moments:

–Yesterday, Laura and I went to lunch at Saigon Noodle House. Since I have already tried their pho, I wanted to try one of their other specialty dishes so I ordered the B4. This had marinated grilled pork over vermicelli noodles and topped with egg rolls. SO GOOD! Laura and I also split the chicken spring rolls because they are literally the best I have ever had from anywhere.



–Getting to work from home today! The AC on our side of our office building has been out for the last three weeks. The replacement units are finally coming in today and my boss told us since even more than just our unit will be down it, would be getting pretty stuffy in there and said we could work from home. Don’t have to tell me twice! To be honest, I am more productive at home. I start working two hours earlier and get so much more done because I don’t have to listen to other people’s noise and conversation in cube world. Also, this guy gets to be my assistant.


Mac does this new thing every night where he goes and sits on the pillows away form us and acts all pouty. Not really sure what the deal is but it is pretty adorable. And pathetic.

Favorite Recipe: I have a few bananas left over this week and am totally trying this simple recipe!

Fried Honey bananas- only honey, banana and cinnamon and ALL good for you. Theyre amazing crispy goodness by themselves, or give a nice upgrade sprinkled over french toast or a peanut butter banana sandwich:


Favorite Fall Treat: I wanted some chocolate last night while I was running errands and I happened upon an end cap of M&Ms. I went to reach for my usual ones and then noticed that they made white butterscotch. YOU GUYS!!! If you like butterscotch at all, do yourself a favor and pick these up. So damn good!

Favorite Lusts: I want to get a few tunic type tops that will fit over my pregnant belly now, and I can hide under after until I get back to my usual size. I can’t seem to find any that are bigger than a regular medium. Ugh! Anyone know where to get some cute ones like this

I am also on the hunt for the perfect nude lip color. What is your favorite?

Favorite Links:

–Sometimes when I walk around Sephora I have no clue what I want. Here are 18 cult products Sephora employees buy themselves.

–Speaking of beauty buys, here are a few perks that you may not know exist at Ulta.

–For those of you without a huge pregnant belly…Amanda and Kate both have great Shopbop sales guides. I believe today is the last day for the sale!

Favorite Funnies:

Hahahaha!! It happens on occasion, but no Chipotle here, just a food court with food from every other possible country instead, haha....and right next door of all places. Coffee and cake for me please ;):


OMG yes. #funny http://pishposhbaby.com:

    Can’t wait to see pics from your baby shower! I worked from home last Friday, too, and got so much accomplished. I actually signed off at 2:30! Enjoy getting pampered this weekend!

    i LOVE working from home. people say they can never get stuff done when they WFH but i get the most done since i don’t have asshats demanding stupid shit from me all the time.

    Ahhhhhh it’s baby shower weekend! Can’t wait to see pics of everything, enjoy every second gurlie! And thanks for the sweet shoutout, there are plenty of great items you can cash in the Shopbop discount on today even with a baby bump. Such a great sale! Happy Friday and baby shower weekend <3

    Oh I wish they would let me work from home. We once had no heat and they made us stay. I could see home working from home would enable you to get more done. It’s the constant interrupts in the office that make it hard to get anything done. Have a wonderful time at your shower this weekend.

    haha – I do the same thing on one way streets 🙂
    I hate when that happens on the treadmill too 🙂 .. oops…
    That banana dessert. OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots October 14, 2016 at 10:56 am

    Oh those M&Ms! If I wasn’t on crutches id be at target buying them right now!

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family October 14, 2016 at 11:15 am

    No joke, I look both ways before crossing a one-way street as well. People be crazy, haha!

    I am so a fan of working from home! Sometimes I get distracted by other things I need to get done around the house so I’ll go to a coffee shop for a bit, but for the most part I love working from home. 🙂

  • Reply Audrey October 14, 2016 at 12:02 pm

    That noodle house sounds incredible… Ugh. I want stuff like that around us!

    I think the husband might really like those M&Ms! Not me, though. Blech! Haha!
    I like the last color of the lip colors 🙂

    All those memes, though….. hahaha!

  • Reply Sierra October 14, 2016 at 12:08 pm

    Happy Friday! Yay for a work from home day but boo to the AC being out for so long. I really think that all companies should offer a work from home day. I would be so much more motivated and productive while in the office getting that little extra incentive. Anyway, wishful thinking. Have the best weekend ever celebrating you and baby girl <3

    have you tried pink blush? i know they have tunics?
    i am not productive at home at all, i can’t really work from home so when it does happen, i basically do nothing. it only happens when we get a lot of snow, lol.

  • Reply Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World October 14, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    OMG yes to the being tired all the time & people needing to worry when I’m both hungry & inconvenienced. Happy Friday!!

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth - Meet at the Barre October 14, 2016 at 2:42 pm

    Yeah thank you for the shout out! I am currently reading that cult favorite post and need to pick up those M&Ms stat!

  • Reply Robin October 14, 2016 at 9:32 pm

    I saw that middle picture of Mac and instantly thought of those “Because I’m worth it” L’Oreal commercials, haha. That food looks soooo good, I want Chinese so badly now.

  • Reply StephTheBookworm October 15, 2016 at 7:55 am

    Oh have fun at your shower! I had the greatest time at my shower because the baby is getting so much love and it all feels so real.

    Mac! So funny. I wonder if he can sense that there’s a baby coming and he’s acting like that out of jealousy haha!

  • Reply Amy Getz October 16, 2016 at 2:25 pm

    Oh, glad you got to work from home! Saving the commute time makes life so much more productive! As always, loved the funnies!

  • Reply Laura October 16, 2016 at 4:30 pm

    Yum those M and Ms sounds so good! I will definitely be trying that banana recipe this week too!

  • Reply Torrie October 16, 2016 at 7:05 pm

    I actually kind of live for brown bananas now that I’ve discovered the blender banana chocolate chip muffins recipe on Mel’s Kitchen Cafe blog. Not only do they basically take no time or effort to make, but they’re reasonably healthy, too (for a muffin, anyway!).

    Baby showers are so much fun—I always thought they were better than wedding showers, which always tended to be awkward. The baby ones are usually just pure fun!

  • Reply texerinsydney October 18, 2016 at 1:49 am

    I’m scared to open that link of products that Sephora employees buy.
    My favorite nude is by Covergirl: Long Lasting Lip Color in Honeyed
    I NEED some of those butterscotch m&ms.
    If you have a tunic on with a cute scarf, you are totally stylin’. Pregnant or not.

  • Reply laura October 18, 2016 at 11:45 am

    WHAT?!?! There are butterscotch M&Ms?!?!?!?!? WHERE HAVE I BEEN?!?! Saigon is the best. We definitely need to go there more often. We could just order a massive amount of spring rolls? that wouldn’t make us weird, right?
