friday favorites

Friday Favorites

Favorite Song:ย Haley & Michael 500 Miles. When I was searching for the Budweiser commercial version of this song I stumbled upon this one and have fallen in love. I just love their voices together and their take on the song.

Favorite Workout:ย This Popsugar Fast and Furious work out is perfect. I love every single move that they do and it really gets you huffing and puffing in no time. It is pretty quick and I like to pair it with the six minute arm video of theirs.

Favorite Treat – It is rare that I will drink something with calories that isn’t Starbucks or beer. The San Pellegrino Blood Orange drink is such a refreshing and tasty treat that I will allow myself ever so often.


Favorite Lust – The pale pink Selma Saffiano Leather Satchel from Michael Kors is just gorgeous! I wouldn’t hate if it ended up in my collection!

Favorite Podcast – I know that I am way late to the party, but gosh darn is Serial addicting!!! I am half way through and I can’t get enough. I can see why she took on this case, as there are so many things to take a second look at. I have my theories so far, as I am sure everyone did half way through and I am interested to see if I am still thinking the same thing with the next 6 episodes.

Favorite Motto: If only everyone lived life like this, this about how amazing the world would be?!

Work Hard and Be Nice

Our internet was acting a fool yesterday and I didn’t get my post up, but the only thing I wanted to share from it was to give my girl Kristen a Happy Birthday shout out!

In other news, Valentine’s Day is this weekend. I love pink and hearts, but not the holiday itself. Never really have. Chris and I usually keep it low key, because who likes to eat in a crowded over priced restaurant?? Not us! I usually fix homemade lasagna and we spend a quiet evening at home. What are your plans?

    Hahaha! I love the cards. I think Gaston has to be my favorite, though. I wasn’t going to do anything in particular for Valentine’s Day, but now I might have to print all the inappropriate cards various people have posted and leave them all over the house for Ryan to find.

    Oh my gosh that version of the song. Yes. Yes yes yes. Work hard and be nice. Yup. I devoured Serial and definitely had my opinions. We can chat about it today if you want! I won’t give anything away ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes we do Valentine’s up big, sometimes we crash on the couch at home with beer. We’ll probably crash on the couch this weekend.

    I like the motto that used. It’s one that everyone should use. Also we use that blood orange soda in one of our cocktails at Johns.

  • Reply Marie February 13, 2015 at 9:48 am

    I love that Michael Kors tote! That color is so fantastic. Have a fab weekend.

  • Reply Carly February 13, 2015 at 10:20 am

    LOVE that Kanye card! He’s such a terrible person but so funny lol

  • Reply Chris February 13, 2015 at 10:34 am

    I blame you for most of the cravings I have. subliminal. That is all.
    Lasagna~ Sounds good, I need it.
    Blood Orange Soda – Need it, now.
    (Last week it was Cucumber Salad, Twice. – I had to have Jimmy Johns Yesterday, I could hold off no longer )

    Seriously pop sugar has the best workouts and putting two of them together….thank you very much don’t have to go to the gym now. No lie my friend Kelly and I were eying that MK blush purse the other day I had her almost convinced to get it. So pretty!!!

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter February 13, 2015 at 10:53 am

    Haha! Those cards are great!

  • Reply Biana Perez February 13, 2015 at 11:17 am

    I’m 100% trying that workout this weekend since yet again I wont make it to the gym…I hate snow! Can’t wait for you to finish serial – it was so great!! Happy Friday – xo, Biana – BlovedBoston

  • Reply Tracy February 13, 2015 at 11:22 am

    OMG I’m dying at the Valentine’s cards! Too funny. Congrats on finally getting on the Serial train; early sympathies for when you finish it and realize you no longer have something to obsess over. Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Julia February 13, 2015 at 11:47 am

    Oh I love the MK tote, I was looking at that same style in a gorgeous rose gold color awhile ago, so prettyyyy! It’s nowhere in the budget right now but a girl can dream! ๐Ÿ™‚ A quiet night at home sounds perfect! We will probably just go to Chili’s or whatever tonight (our usual spot) and tomorrow we’re going to spend the day together but nothing fancy. Have a great weekend!

  • Reply kristen February 13, 2015 at 12:08 pm

    awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww you are so lovely!!! thank you darling ๐Ÿ™‚ i feel so special.
    meanwhile i would not hate if that bag turned up in my collection either. holy prettiness.

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo February 13, 2015 at 12:10 pm

    That MK tote is gorgeous. I splurged this week and bought myself a new Kate Spade wallet during their sale. So much for my spending freeze. Oooops. We’re definitely probably doing low key on Valentine’s day too, because it’s not worth dealing with all the commotion. But it is worth the pink and hearts and frilly things ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Reply Lindsay @ Broke and Bougie February 13, 2015 at 12:50 pm

    oh I am LOVING this version of 500 miles! And I’m so jealous that you still have half a season of Serial left!!

  • Reply Brooks February 13, 2015 at 1:20 pm

    The Miley Cyrus E-Card. Perfect use for it. And as for Serial? It’s so good!

  • Reply Nadine February 13, 2015 at 1:50 pm

    I chuckled so hard at those vday cards! At least there is some humor in Valentine’s day! And yaassss to that sparkling. For a long time I had no idea there were calories, when I found out I was completely heartbroken!

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says February 13, 2015 at 2:13 pm

    Most of those cards are hilarious!

    I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day for myself and Scott but we try to do something small for Erica. It’s tough coming up with things but at least she likes pink so we just make all her food pink for the day. That seems so help.

  • Reply Jessi February 13, 2015 at 2:16 pm

    Theeeeeese valentines cards are just lovely to me. Especially the Bill Nye. Sweet sweet humor. Also, my Friday Expectation vs Friday Actual is the same – early sleep and nothing crazy. The best ever. Happy weekend! I’m loving the look around here!

  • Reply Kerry February 13, 2015 at 3:44 pm

    Serial is so good nad their have been updates on the case in the news so when you are done, google the case. The grumpy cat one is too funny! Love all the ecards this week!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph February 13, 2015 at 4:07 pm

    MFD is a big fan of those Pellegrinos. I can have half, more than that is too much for me!

    Love that version of 500 Miles.

    Have a great weekend!

    OMG! Those cards were hilarious!

  • Reply alyssa February 13, 2015 at 4:55 pm

    Yassssss Serial. (Pretty sure I already said this to you today but it bears repeating!

  • Reply Steph February 13, 2015 at 5:27 pm

    We saved Serial for a road trip last weekend. It’s wonderful! And now I need answers!

  • Reply Teh Megan February 13, 2015 at 6:55 pm

    I LOVE their version of this song.. AND it always makes me think of HIMYM, which makes me happy.
    I’m a bitch beer drinker (no fucks to give, judge away) and Mike’s makes a Blood Orange Hard Lemonade or whatthefuckever the name is and it’s AHHHMAZING. I found it at the grocery store earlier and almost did a little dance. The lady looking at the real beers a few sections down kinda laughed at me. Again, idgaf.
    Those valentine’s card rock my world and I just want to send all of them to Mr. Scrooge but he wouldn’t appreciate them like I wanted, so no valentine’s cards for him!

  • Reply Kay R. February 14, 2015 at 5:36 pm

    I want that selma bag so much but I just bought an even more expensive MK bag so I cannot justify it. Its been on my wishlist a while now though! Sighs.

  • Reply Amanda February 14, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Man, I neeeed to get on board with Serial. I’ve never listened to a podcast before but I am intrigued!

  • Reply Alanna @ Alanna and Co February 16, 2015 at 8:31 am

    I love that purse! I actually have a similar one from Kate Spade but it’s white and black. Also I’ve never seen the Pelligrino blood orange, but I do love Pelligrino and love Blood Orange so I’ll have to search it out!

  • Reply Stephanie February 16, 2015 at 10:03 am

    hahaha the engagement rings, that would be hilarious. How horrified would all the men be?! Someone should do that…
    I haven’t listened to Serial at all. I know people love it though. Maybe when I have time!

  • Reply jackie February 16, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    isn’t serial the best?! and now i want that michael kors bag too.

  • Reply Duckie February 17, 2015 at 8:08 pm
