Friday Favorites

I feel like this is the week that wouldn’t end! I am behind on everything. Work is slammed slammed slammed. I don’t know what happened but all of a sudden my WIP has quadrupled in size. I mean job security or whatever, but damn! Not to mention we had homeowner problems this week, adulting things we had to do, and Chris had his debit card hijacked or something. I dont know. Add to the mix the fact that Zoe has decided that she wants to act like a toddler now and throw herself on the ground every time she doesn’t get her way. Goodness. I am done and ready for the weekend and a glass of wine.  You feel me?

Favorite Moments: Laura and I decided on Farm Bowl + Juice Co for lunch this week. We wanted to see what the acai bowl hype was all about. You guys, it’s legit!!! I was so surprised by how much I thoroughly enjoyed every last bite of the delicious bowl I ordered. I thought it was going to be more like yogurt, but it was so cold and more solid…reminded me of sherbet texture almost. Anyways, I am hooked and I think this is going to be the best refreshing lunch option on a hot Alabama summer day! Can’t wait to go back!

The amazing exterior wall and the gorgeous interior of the place doesn’t hurt either! They even have a swing out front that I plan to sit on next time. I am pretty sure I could get Zoe to eat one of these bowls filled with antioxidants too!

We have still been eating healthy during the week. Some of our eats included bbq chicken stuff baked potatoes (I tossed just a little blue cheese on mine to give it a little something) and meatballs with green beans and red wine vinegar quinoa with spinach.

Favorite Recipe: I would like to start incorporating more meatless meals into our rotation. How amazing do these tacos look? I mean…tacos!!!!

Honey Lime Sweet Potato Black Bean and Corn Tacos - they're so healthy and SO delicious!!

Favorite Purchase: Loft had 40% off their tops so I scooped up this striped racerback tank that fits SO good! It is sort of flowy and longer in the front and back to cover all the things you want covered. I think it is perfect for under cardigans/jackets or by itself with a bra-let or something underneath.

I also grabbed this azalea shell that is more of a gray/blue than the picture. It is such a gorgeous color and perfect for super hot days to wear alone, or under a cardigan/jacket for work. I have already worn both shirts twice.

Favorite Funnies:

You know you're from the 90's when...

    We had a similar week, even down to the weird account stuff! What is in the air?! I love those two tops you picked up. I should have taken advantage of the sale… I can always use more work tops! I would like to incorporate more meatless meals into our rotation, too, if I can get J on board. 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend!

    I still buy CD’s & look for the lyrics 🙂
    I’ve never tried an acai bowl myself because I think it looks both beautiful & icky. good to know its more solid than I thought it would be too.

    Yes! This week took for-ev-er! That wall is awesome! I really love that blue top as well.

    This week was so long, work is crazy here too, and no car still. Let’s toast each other at 5 with some wine! Oh yes, the lyrics on CD’s too funny! Have a great weekend!

    I’m sorry you guys had such a shitty week – but at least it’s Friday and it’s the weekend. I can’t wait to go back to Farm Bowl again! I’m still dreaming about it, and maybe one day I’ll be brave enough to get my picture in front of it.

    I feel you, girl! Adulting, momming to a toddler (Lord help us) and all the craziness of life is enough for me. That wall is fantastic and has my heart eyes popping out wishing I could stand in front of it lol. I hope you have a good weekend and things calm down a bit for you. Sierra~Beautifully Candid

    I love the idea of the sweet potato and pulled chicken or pork on it. Yum. That juice and bowl place sounds so good. That is my favorite kind of meal! Have a great weekend!

    Ah, the joys of CD’s & flipping out that leaflet, nothing felt better. Ha, ha!

    Have a great weekend! 🙂

    Sorry this week has been rough! That sucks that Chris’ debit card was hacked- sometimes I really hate people lol. Cheers to a good weekend and relaxing away from work!

  • Reply Meg Taylor March 9, 2018 at 1:27 pm

    Oh my gosh, those stuffed sweet potatoes look amazing!! And you are so right – acai bowls are legit! There’s a place near me that does one with granola, peanut butter, bananas, and chocolate shavings on top, and it’s heavenly!

    I’m loving all your memes today. Lol
    That fruit bowl place sounds (and looks!) amazing! It sounds like it’d be PERFECT on a hot day.
    Hope you get that glass (bottle?) of wine sooner than later 😉

  • Reply ShootingStarsMag March 9, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    Hah! Those funny memes are great – especially the one about not having the lyrics in the CD. SO TRUE!! I’m sorry you had a bit of a rough week; I hope this weekend is more fun and relaxing for you. 🙂 I’ve never had an acai bowl, but they sound wonderful.

    That meme with the baby and the tacos is too funny and how I feel pretty much all the time! I’m sorry that Zoe is starting toddler hood! Hopefully she stops the tantrums soon!

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine March 9, 2018 at 4:31 pm

    Cool wall. I have some pulled pork, I’m going to put it on top sweet potatoes for our dinner tonight. So sorry it was a rough week, I know you’ve been working a lot! Hope you get to relax And rest this weekend!

    Amanda is addicted to those Acai bowls. I can hardly even say the word. LOL! I got her the packets and now she makes her own at home . . . which is great since they are NINE FREAKING dollars at the little spot near our house. Cute tops from loft . . . I need some new summer clothes but I just don’t want to buy yet! Hashtag lazy! Happy weekending!

    Sounds like a crazy week! Hope you get to relax and unwind this weekend. My debit card has been compromised twice and thankfully my bank refunded me all the money that was stolen. Most banks are usually good with that so I hope Chris gets fully refunded. Yum to all the sweet potato recipes! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

    I love acai bowls! I had never heard of them before I moved to Hawaii but I agree — they are amazing on a hot summer day! Also, thanks for posting that meatless taco recipe! I am hosting our next book club here in Hawaii and I am having everyone bring stuff for a taco bar, but we have a couple vegetarians and so I might make this to give people options!

  • Reply Kate March 11, 2018 at 1:23 pm

    Yeesh what a week indeed! Hoping your weekend has been much better, sending lots of *hugs*. And you need to come over and cook for me during the week. Those potatoes look AMAZING <3
