Friday Favorites

Oh, hey there Friday. You sure did sneak up on us! Sorry I went MIA all week. I was sitting here at my desk working on Tuesday and all of a sudden my email blew the fuck up and I had fifteen new jobs come in. No exaggerations. There have been three nights this week that I have put Zoe to bed, and then came in here and worked for a few hours instead of winding down with a glass of wine and watching TV or reading. So you know shit got real. Anyways, I hope you are all doing well! I am surely glad the weekend is upon us! I am not sure what is on the agenda, but it’s the weekend so it doesn’t matter!

Favorite Moment: Just cherishing every single moment I get to spend with this little one. I know that I am going to have to go back to the office every day instead of just once a week sometime soon, and I cant even talk about that anymore without breaking down in to tears, so again…cherishing every single moment of my precious Zoe time! We have gotten in a good groove, her and I. She is pretty much on a schedule now and it has been glorious.

Can she pull off a pineapple print, or what???

Also, I met up with one of my friends from the Friday Lunch Club on Monday. I haven’t seen her in quite some time and it was just so wonderful catching up with that sweet lady! I am so thankful to have some amazing, supportive woman in my life. Ones that, even if I don’t see or talk to them for a little bit….we pick up as if we just saw each other yesterday and keep on going. Ones if they see a missed call from you in the middle of the day, they call you back immediately and ask if you are ok because it is so unlike you to call instead of text. Ones that send you a random meme or GIF at just the right time because they totally get you.

Favorite Workout: I haven’t been getting in near the cardio that I need, but I have been working on my arms almost every day. I have two five minute arms workouts that I mix and match through my day when I have a few minutes. Going to be adding this one to it…

Sculpt and tone your arms in ways you never imagined with this barre inspired arm workout. Little movements with lots of repetition will work arm muscles in miraculous ways! Shaping your biceps, shoulders, and triceps. Home or gym workout!:

    Oh the shower meme is SO real!

    Ugh sorry work has been busy. Hopefully it will calm down soon. I almost got that pineapple print outfit for my friend’s twins but they didn’t have two of the same sizes. I went with ones that have flamingos. Zoe totally rocks it! Cracking up at the HGTV meme because every time I hear these budgets I ask Eric what the, are we doing wrong?! Beautifully Candid

    Lol I forget to bring new razors/shampoo/conditioner into the shower all the time! If Gordon Ramsey voiced my GPS I might actually turn the volume on haha.

    Aw… She’s getting so big! 1. I need that taco bowl in my life. 2. I need Gordon Ramsay to voice my GPS.

    Zoe DOES pull off pineapples well! Such a cutie! I know you are loving every minute with her right now. Soak up all that time, momma!

    I love that little pineapple romper! Baby clothes are the best. Can you imagine if we wore half of that stuff in adult size though?! Lol. And yep… don’t know how and why all these HGTV people have budgets that are nowhere near normal! Clearly I am doing something wrong!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis May 19, 2017 at 10:31 pm

    Aww baby Zo in pineapple print is too cute for words! LOL @ Gordon Ramsey. He’s as harsh as it can get so sometimes you just have to add some humor in the mix !

  • Reply Laura May 19, 2017 at 11:12 pm

    Hahaha that HGTV thing is so true!!! What do these people do?!?! Also, I need to move to the middle of nowhere instead of suburban Philadelphia where a tiny 1000 square foot home costs 300k!!!

  • Reply Jess May 20, 2017 at 3:01 pm

    I understand the being away from baby thing. Sometimes I want some time to myself, but I honestly left for about 3 hours the other day and when I came home, I was so glad to see her. Being away all day is hard – I did that for a bit and it stinks. I’m sure Zoe will do fine though, probably better than you x). I want that Gordon Ramsey GPS. He would keep me on track.

    Oh that pineapple romper is so cute on Zoe!! I so want Gordon Ramsey on my GPS. I probably would never get lost! haha

  • Reply Laura May 22, 2017 at 10:30 am

    OMG, that HGTV meme!! 1.8 million – bahah. So true! Zoe girl is looking so cute in that pineapple romper! That girl can pull anything off! She’s so smiley!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders May 22, 2017 at 11:23 am

    Ugh work weeks like that suck, but hopefully your weekend was better! In my opinion Zoe looks adorable in everything, but that pineapple print is adorable! I also love that funny of Gordon Ramsey!

  • Reply Allison Arnone May 22, 2017 at 11:30 am

  • Reply Alexandra May 24, 2017 at 10:30 am

    Lol on those memes. The pineapple print is TOO much! So cute. That arm workout looks great! I don’t have kiddos, but I think going back to work would be really hard for me. 🙂 Xo – Alexandra
