Friday Favorites

Friday!!!!!!!! Does it feel like an entire month went by this week? Because it does to me. Work has been crazy. I was up past 11:00pm on Monday night painting. Wednesday night we were out after I got Zoe from school, so the whole night routine happened later than usual. Thursday morning I spent an hour working on a project for Zoe for school BEFORE work at 5:00am. It’s been that kind of week.

Favorite Moments: On Monday I got to have lunch with a dear friend I haven’t seen in a few years. I hate that we fell out of touch, but it was so nice to catch up with her and meet her daughter! Her daughter is just a few months younger than Zoe.

Speaking of Zoe, she is just so fun right now!

I got on the scale yesterday morning and realized I hit a new, post-pregnancy low. I cannot tell you how happy and thankful I am that I pulled the trigger and signed up for Weight Watchers. This is really the  only thing that has been working for me lately. I need something that keeps me “good” most of the time, but allows for a cheeseburger or macaron on a regular basis. Because life without cheeseburgers is no life at all, in my opinion. And to be perfectly honest, there are some days I don’t even really track my points. Just having that scanner when I am grocery shopping allows me to make better choices. If you are thinking about signing up, here is my link. We can both get a free month!

I did a Trader Joe’s run the other day to get said macarons. I of course had to get a few of my favorite fall staples (pumpkin ravioli, butternut squash macaroni, pumpkin crisps with goat cheese) annnnnd a new favorite!!! Candy Corn Popcorn. SO GOOD! And I grabbed a poke bowl for lunch, which is always delicious! You know what isn’t so delicious? 97 freaking degrees and it is almost October. I love the south for many things, but the ridiculously hellish temperatures this late in the game is not one of them.

I noticed the pumpkin donuts are back at Dunkin this week. I decided to go ahead and order my one for the season. It was well worth it!

Favorite Song: Have you heard Cry Pretty from Carrie Underwood? I just love Carrie. I would really love her legs, too. I know she worked hard for them! I had stumbled across an interview with her from earlier in the week, and had no clue how much she went through this last year. I think we have all been there before, where you just have to cry it out. I love the lyrics to this song!


Favorite Recipe: How good does this tomato bisque with meatballs look???

This dairy free and Whole30 compliant tomato basil bisque with Italian meatballs is an easy winter soup with simple ingredients! The perfect paleo dinner the whole family will love.

Favorite Lust: I saw this Free People shirt and knew I had to have it!!! Thanks to my shopkicks, it was free!

    Way to go on your weight loss. I’m so awful at meal planning and hate grocery shopping so I’ve been bad and it’s not good. Love the pics of Zoe! Enjoy your weekend!

    Carrie Underwood – she is just perfection to me – love her look, her style, her love of family & life & love her being bold on her faith.

    I have had that tomato bisque pinned for forever. I just finally added it to my upcoming meal plan menu. I can’t wait to try it! Congrats on hitting the new post-pregnancy weight low! I agree, life without cheeseburgers is no life at all!

    Weight Watchers is the only thing that works for me too! I recommitted this week and already feel so much better.

  • Reply Sierra September 21, 2018 at 11:18 am

    Yup, it’s been that kind of week over here too. That’s so amazing you are doing so well with weight watchers! Haha I couldn’t agree more, burgers all the way. I need to make a Trader Joe’s run. That soup with the meatballs looks so good. That’s definitely something I could try. I hope you have a great weekend! Sierra Beautifully Candid

    Why did this week feel sooooo long?
    Is it because I was punished with a non-Hurrication last week?

  • Reply ShootingStarsMag September 21, 2018 at 2:22 pm

    I would also like to be a retired lottery winner. That would be the life.
    I hope you have a great weekend – sounds like this week was a bit long for you!! I hate those kind of weeks. Yay for seeing a friend you haven’t talked to in awhile. And congrats on losing weight on WW. That’s awesome.

    I think I need that Free People top in my life, hello comfy. Seriously with these hellish temps when are we ever going to see 80 degrees? That’s amazing girl on your progress. Life without a burger is no life at all I agree but what is this scanner ability now? I’m intrigued.

  • Reply Heather September 25, 2018 at 9:05 am
