Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!!!! You guys, my oldest nephew turns 17 today. How crazy is that??? Chris and I have the anniversary of our engagement coming up later this month too, it’s been 12 years. What even is time?

This week has been a busy one. Work has been crazy, we had a mid-week home repair that had our kitchen in disarray for two days. And if I am being completely honest, it is still a mess because I just haven’t had time to clean it up. But, Zoe had her Valentine’s exchange at dance last night and she came home so happy. Her dance teachers are the sweetest. I also decided to change gymnastic gyms for her. I know it is mid year, but I am her advocate and I am hoping for a better experience at her new gym.

Through all of that, I somehow managed to listen to two books this week and physically read one. I love when I can binge several books in a row. I decided to create a book highlight on Instagram and review them all in my stories in addition to the times I share them here. I might start doing some empties over there too. It takes so long to write empties posts and I have an entire bin full of them from the last 6-8 months. Ridiculous, I know!!

Are you going to watch the game this weekend? I don’t really care for either team….but I am ridiculously excited for the half time show!!!! I am sure all of us in our 30s and 40s are!

Favorite Finds: I grabbed this dress for Zoe for St Patrick’s Day. I love that it is versatile to wear all spring/summer too. We LOVE this brand, everything is so cute on her and good quality.

I also ordered her this dress for Easter from the same brand. Told you, we love it! How sweet is this print?

Favorite Recipe: This was a quick dinner the other night. I roasted some brussels in the oven at the same time the chicken cooked.

Favorite Workout: This was a fun dance party to add on at the end of my workout this morning to get some extra movement. You could even try it on your lunch break! Love this girl’s attitude and motivation. I find myself doing several of her dance party workouts after arm or leg sets.

Favorite Funnies:

Linking up for Friday Favorites. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    Stop editing your pics – lolololol. So glad Z had such a good Valentine’s exchange at dance. We did a card exchange here at work, and I totally forgot how much fun it is. I hope you don’t do 15 loads of laundry this weekend!!!!

    I’m so excited for the Super Bowl, obviously. Go Bengals! Glad you got your kitchen situation taken care of! Grow with Jo’s videos are always a fun time!

    Those are the cutest dresses. I have the links open and will check them out. Super cute. I am excited for Super Bowl and happy to not stress over my team being in it. Though I would rather them there. I can’t wait for the half time show. I can’t believe you have a 17 year old nephew. Time flies. I have close friends whose kids are 19. How is that even possible.

    I have those two dresses open in another window as they are sooo cute. My girls would love them. I am excited about the Super Bowl. But definitely more for the half time show now that my Niners are not in it anymore. I can’t believe you have a nephew who is 17. My friends son is 19 and it blows me away. How are we getting this old? Ha. Have a great weekend.

    Those dresses are adorable! I LOVE the color of the St. Patricks Day ones!
    That one YouTube lady – I love her walking videos. I like the ones for after dinner – just to get in some extra steps.
    Have a great weekend!

    I can’t believe you are able to save the empties. I LOVE using up products and feel so satisfied throwing them in the trash when empty 🙂

    The neighbor wave from You is 100% after I’ve been outside yelling at the dogs.

    LOL the clean shirt meme. Truly. Hahahahaha.
    Those dresses for Zoe are too cute! And go YOU advocating for her experience and happiness. I hope she loves her new gym!

    Love that you created a book highlight – we have a pretty similar taste in books!! Home repairs, especially if unexpected are the pits – we have had a few of those in the last few months! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

    LOL that’s me waving at the neighbors too whenever our windows are open, and you can hear us fighting with our five year old and her sass. Sorry you had to change gyms, hoping she loves the new one <3

    Glad Zoe’s valentine exchange went well at dance. And I hope her new gymnastics place is a better fit. Those dresses are so cute!
