Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I had to check twice to make sure it was actually Friday. Work was absolutely insane this week and my days are gone before I know it. I remember when I was going to the office full time, how slow it seemed work days went compared to the weekend. Now, all my days fly by in a blink of an eye. I have been waking up 30 minutes earlier every day this week to ensure I am getting in a good, full workout before I sit on my ass in front of my computer for hours.

We had some interesting weather this week. It was so dark on Tuesday when a storm was rolling in, that our streetlights came on outside at noon! There was major flooding in downtown Birmingham and other areas that we don’t usually see an issue. Luckily at our house, it wasn’t so bad. It cooled the temperatures down some, and it was so beautiful most of yesterday! We got to see my sister for awhile, and Zoe and I took a walk outside before lunch.

Zoe said “Take a picture of me and Mac!!” These two. So cute. When they aren’t driving me insane.

Favorite Purchases: I really wanted a white blazer, but I didn’t want to pay over $100 for it. Enter the Scoop line! I grabbed this up for under $50 and it is about the same quality as something I would have grabbed at Express or a department store. I love the scrunched arms, as I feel it looks better on me that a full sleeve. So many ways to dress this up or down. I also have my eyes on this one.

I grabbed this hand soap because the scent sounded right up my alley, and I loved the way the bottle looked. I am so in love with it!!! I am definitely getting this one from now on. It smells so so good and is cleaner than some other ones out there!

Wearing masks has made my face break out again after having really clear skin. Pisses me off. I used Kate Somerville AntiBac lotion daily for years, but then stopped using it in 2020 because I didn’t need it. My face had completely cleared up. Now that I go back into the world again, the mask is causing major breakouts for me. I immediately ordered myself a bottle and am already seeing them calm down.

Favorite Recipe: I made this chicken picatta recipe earlier this week, and it was soooo good! It came together pretty fast, and I served it up with some asparagus from the air fryer.


Favorite Workout: Heather Robertson has been kicking my ass this week. This full body one was great. Sometimes I like a good no repeat workout. I know reps are what build muscles, but this one is great for when I want to the workout to move quickly.

Favorite Funnies:

Linking up for Friday Favorites! I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! Happy Mother’s Day!

    I missed y0uuuuu yesterday, but glad you got some time in with your sis. Sorry work has been so busy, but at least it makes for a fast day! That is definitely me with the overreacting – they need to make a meme for all the anxiety you feel after you overreact and then feel like a moron. Hope you guys have a good weekend!

    That white blazer – you’re going to be able to wear that with so many things!
    Yep – something must have been in the air this week because I had the most chaotic week ever & cant believe its Friday too!
    That meme about Pinterest – 10000% accurate in my life

    Very cute blazer, and a great price too. I really do want to get some new clothes for the warmer months. Nothing too crazy, but I don’t really buy new clothes all that often.
