Friday Favorites

Three day weekend, what up?!?!?! I am  SO excited to have an extra day this weekend. And it’s a big one guys! FOOTBALL IS BACK! ROLL TIDE! I am so ready to spend my Saturdays eating delicious snacks and watching all the games. And by delicious snacks, I am hoping to keep most WW friendly. But you know, sometimes in a nail biter you gotta step up. This week was a complete shit show, and I am so ready for 5pm! Other than football, there are some things I want to get done around the house this weekend. My jewelry armoire came in, and it was broken. WHAT??? I was so pissed! But, Chris being the awesome husband he is, said he would handle all that. He said customer service was amazing, but in the end he decided to fix it himself. They told him we have about 80 days to decide if we want to keep it or they can switch it out. He did such a good job fixing it, I cant wait to load up my stuff! Other than that, we will probably hang low around the house. I am trying to get a play date together with a daycare friend this weekend too. What are you up to?

Favorite Moments: Laura and I finally got to try out Shake Shack yesterday! There wasn’t a line to order food, but we had to wait awhile to pick up our food…and stalk tables like crazy until one came available for us to snag. I got the SmokeShack Burger and cheese fries. It was good, and I was sooooooooo ready to have a burger this week! I thought everything tasted good, but there wasn’t anything super special about it. There are plenty of other burger places here in Birmingham, but this was a fun place for lunch. I would go back again, but when it calms down some.

For the lunches I had in the office this week, I ate the Whole 30 Chick-Fil-A nuggets. It was a nice break from the lazy lunches I had been packing the last several weeks. They kept me full the rest of the day, it were delicious!

Favorite Recipe: Some WW recipes for game day! Who doesn’t love nachos?

These gluten-free nachos are the perfect solution to healthy game day snacks. Spicy Cajun turkey is stuffed into mini bell peppers and baked with cheese. Fully loaded with chilies, avocado and lime crema these are a guilt-free snack. #gamedayrecipes #nachos #glutenfreesnacks

These sweet and sour meatballs sound good too!

weight watcher recipes- slow cooker sweet and sour turkey meatballs - 1 meatball is 1 point with sauce.  Great appetizers for Game Day Food!

Favorite Purchase: We got Zoe a pair of gold Puma shoes last week at Nordstrom Rack. She is obsessed and has worn them nearly every day this week. They are so darn cute on her! Here is the link if you are in the market. They are of  good quality and not too crazy of a price. They are the shoes she is wearing with her denim dress and come in other colors as well.

Favorite Sephora Picks: Real talk? The Sephora sales really don’t impress me much. I mean, 15% off? Gee thanks. Sales tax here is 10%. You barely save anything. So I really only ever buy things that I am in need of at the time. Or if there is a palette or something I have been wanting for a long time, I might splurge on that. I never stock up or go crazy though. Right now, I need some make up remover (I hate the drug store one I am almost out of.) And I need a new moisturizer because I literally finished up the last of mine this morning. My favorite make up remover is the Boscia Make-Up Breakup oil, it works so good!

For moisturizer, my go to is usually the Clinique Moisture Surge. My make up goes on best with it, and it is just enough moisture without making my skin going nuts…but keeping the dry patches at bay. The price point isn’t anything too crazy, since this stuff lasts awhile. Are you shopping the sale?

I hit pan a long time ago on the Naked color in my Naked Palette. It is my absolute favorite shade, and I am trying to decide if I want to just get a single one in it…or go for one of the eye pencils from Bobbi Brown or Laura Mercier. What is your all time favorite shadow color?

Favorite Reminder: 

Favorite Funnies:

All Zoe wants to watch at home is Secret Life of Pets. She talks about it constantly. And when we are in the car, all I am allowed to listen to is Welcome to New York by T Swizzle. It reminds me of Marshall and the 500 Miles song on How I Met Your Mother. It drives you insane, but then it comes back around and you find yourself singing to it. But seriously, send help. HELP!

This is so me!

    Your girl… I can only DREAM of being as stylish as she is.
    Isnt it funny how kids dont get sick of the same movie or song? It’s God testing the adults though – I’m convinced of it 🙂

    I wasn’t that impressed with Shake Shack either! I remember it tasting better in ATL – I’d much rather have a burger from Jack Brown’s any day! I’m cheating on WW this weekend, well tomorrow) and eating some snacks that are a bazillion points, but those pepper nachos look good too. That’s exactly how I feel after putting S in his car seat. LOL. Hope y’all have a good weekend!

    I felt the same way about in and out that you do about shake shack, kind of unimpressed. Won’t stop me from trying it when they open one in the airport here! I love zoe’s shoes! I need to get some of those for my niece. Oh that last funny is so dang true, I took the stairs this morning and feel like I ran a marathon. Enjoy your long nice weekend and your football, I am soooo ready!

    I have only had shake shack once. We now have one where I live and we have gone once. It was really good. I need to go back again. Those nachos and meatballs look really good. Perfect for healthier football snacks. I am super excited about football coming back!!! Have a great weekend.

    Hahaha that Nsync funny!! So true. Those nachos do look really delicious. LOL I kind of want to watch Secret Life of Pets now… maybe tonight while I’m waiting to pick up my friend. I tried leaving it on for Nash once while I was gone but he just doesn’t even care about the TV.

    That stinks your armoire was broken but way to go Chris for fixing it! That will be so nice once you have everything in place. Those nachos look delicious! Zoe is too adorable in her new sneakers! Have a great weekend and all the football fun. Sierra Beautifully Candid

    oh i’m sorry your armoire was broken, hopefully chris can fix it. i agree about shake shack, it’s fine. it’s burgers. burgers in general are a hit for me. i don’t think it’s that amazing lol. certainly not worth the crazy hype and all the lines. I bought a couple things from the sale that were on extra sale, but other than that, i agree, nothing too fabulous about 15% off lol. tarte has bogo 50% so i bought a couple things there. oops. no spending month starts tomorrow…

    That one is hilarious, but I was never number one. LOL I’m slightly more in shape but man is it a work in progress, especially if there are steps in involved. I really need to look into some WW recipes – those meatballs look yummy.

    omg that car seat meme is totally me, LOL. I’m so glad Chris was able to fix your jewelry armoire, I’m sure it will be so fun to organize. Love that picture of you and Zoe in your sunglasses and her gold pumas are too cute. I’m not craving chick fil’a– and just bought a bunch of chicken on sale so I’m going to have to check out that recipe.

  • Reply Audrey September 4, 2018 at 2:02 pm

    Your funnies are the best. The one about Guy Fieri’s kids is amazing. LOL. So true.
    I love Zoe’s gold shoes!! And those Chick-fil-a nuggets sound delicious!!
