Friday Favorites

Hey there, Friday! This week was a little off for me because I went to the office a different day than I usually do.

Favorite Moments: Zoe turned 5 months old yesterday! I just love looking back over the pictures of her and seeing how much she has changed and learned over the last month.

Laura and I finally got a chance to meet up for lunch yesterday while I was at my office. Some much needed girl time for sure. We decided to try somewhere new, SoHo Social. We started off with beer (Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc) and waffle sweet potato fries with a Gorgonzola dip. From there I got a short rib burger and Laura had a pork belly BLT and we both ordered street corn. Needless to say we will be adding this place to our regular rotation! The atmosphere was great for having a conversation and our service was wonderful.

Favorite Recipe: This Whole 30 Sweet Potato and Greens recipe sounds delicious for breakfast! Anything without eggs is my jam.

Favorite Purchase: I am stalking the tracking on my IT Cosmetics Pretty in Summer Trio!!! I saw a tutorial using this trio and heard that QVC was doing a Beauty with Benefits sale now through May 18th and I just had to get it! Plus, if you have never ordered with QVC before (I hadn’t) you receive $5 off your purchase! The trio comes with a dual sided no tug eye shadow brush and is supposed to be brightening and anti-aging. The three colors are my favorite three kinds to wear; a neutral, pink and plum! Ummm beautiful make up for a good cause? Sign me up! ┬áIf you are in the market for some new beauty products right now, check out the QVC sale to give back with your purchase. (Totally not sponsored by QVC I wish, I just like companies who give back.)

Favorite Lust:It sounds weird, but after taking inventory of clothing items…I don’t have any basic “nice” t-shirts. I want a few neutral colors that I can style up or down and want them to be really good quality. I have heard amazing things about the Halogen jersey t’s from Nordstrom. Have any of you tried them?

Favorite Thought:


Favorite Funnies:



Just had a moment like this today. It would have ended funnier if I had some tea. lol:


Day 2 of eating healthy. Still look the same. Absolutely appalled.:

Linking up with Amanda. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

    I’ve had to buy a few basic tees lately too. Easy to dress up or down and needed some plain neutral colors. I went cheap and got them from Walmart.com though. Lol

    I have so many clothes, but the thing I need most are cute basic tees, namely black and maybe a cute bright one. So glad you got to meet up with Laura for some girl time and I hope you have a weekend that is as beautiful as you are!

    I want those fries and dip again right now. B was surprised you got me to eat gorgonzola cheese, but it was so good!! And that was such a good time. I have missed our bestie lunches for sure. I can’t believe Zoe girl is 5 months old. That is just crazy, and I refuse to accept it.

    All those memes… I saw the Mr. Rogers one this week and found it hilariously accurate. Ha!
    That meal looks and sounds delicious!!

    I have the biggest struggle trying to find a good tee. They loose their shape or they cling in the wrong places. the Tee struggle is so real!!!

    Those waffle fries. Omg! And the beer looks good, too… I have never tried the Halogen tees but I love the tees from BP. And they’re so cheap! I think I have four and I wear them regularly. Hard to believe Zoe is 5 months old! Where did the time go?! Hope you guys have a great weekend!

    Oh my goodness, that gorgonzola dip sounds so good! I’m glad that you found a new meetup place with your friend, it’s even better when there’s not only good food and a good atmosphere, but also good service too! I hope that you have a fantastic weekend!

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! May 5, 2017 at 12:18 pm

    How is Zoe already five months old??? Also, I’m totally drooling over your Soho Social lunch!

    That’s exactly how I felt on Tuesday this week, ugh! I’ve been stocking up on basic tees lately too, and HAPPY 5 MONTHS Zoe <3

    I need those fries in my belly right now.

    Strangely, some of my favorite “basic” t-shirts were found at Wal-Mart. Their clothes are crappy quality sometimes, but I think they have improved. Have a great weekend!

    Can’t believe Zoe is five months already. What a little sweetheart she is with the biggest smiles. The Gorgonzola dip sounds so good! Yummy lunch date.

    Those waffle sweet potato fries look amazing!

    Yay for good girl time and good food! Yum!

  • Reply kristen May 10, 2017 at 1:12 pm

    that last one is hilarious. and mmm sweet potato fries. i love a good basic ‘nice’ tee. they are good for the throw on and leave days. i am partial to longer sleeves though, not long, just like elbow length. makes me feel a bit more grown up or something? i don’t know haha.
