Friday Favorites

I have really enjoyed linking up with the lovely Amanda for Friday Favorites! Plus, I love seeing what everyone’s favorites are for the week! Let’s get to it, shall we?

Favorite Tunes: I have been listening to Too Close by Next a ridiculous number of times this week. I can’t help it. Bask in the awesome!

Next up, Chris has mix cds that you can download for free! Jump on that if you need some new work out material, commute music…or if you just want to back your ass up!



Favorite Moment: I don’t have a picture because I am a blogging failure, but I got to have a quick blate with Laura from Alabama Graffiti! We met for happy hour at Side Bar and chatted it up over beers. I even got to meet her husband for a few minutes too! I love when I meet a blogger in person and we just hit it off. I have a few blogger turned IRL friends now and it makes my heart super happy! I smell a couples date in the future!

Favorite Purchase: Dress from JCPenney – $23 A.N.A. Brand – I had a coupon for $10 off $25 and I really hate to see $10 free dollars fly out the window! I need some new clothes, bad. All my dresses I have had for awhile and most of the straps are stretched out so they don’t stay up and I have to wear my jean jacket over them. (Big chest probz)  Not cute when it is 90 degrees, you know? I paired this dress with a cardigan and a necklace to make it work appropriate.



Favorite Pet Pictures: I am throwing one of Gracie in here this week! The dogs told me they are feeling neglected on the little blog, I quickly reminded them the Olivia has never written a post and they instantly felt better. Gracie, can you be any sweeter? I think not.


This is a blurry picture of Olivia, but you can really see her striping. I love her tiger stripes!



Favorite $5 ever spent: I was at Petsmart picking up dog treats the other night. As I was walking through the middle aisle, I saw their Martha Stewart line on clearance. I found springy frog toy for $4.97! I brought it home and set it on the living room floor. Little Livy started playing with it instantly….and kept at it for an hour and a half straight. Swatting, pouncing, tackling! I had no idea that she would love it so much! It really keeps her entertained and wears her out!


The only downside? It has a bell on it, which is part of the appeal to Livy. Anything to annoy the shit out of me is her jam. I want to rip it off…but I know it wont be as fun for her. The things we do for our pets!!!



Friday Funnies: Let’s face it, that is why you are all here…

Carry on. I'll watch from a distance...

It's funny 'cause it's true

Annnnnd Chris shared this on his blog yesterday and I could NOT stop laughing. So I am stealing it:

    I’m laughing so hard right now at all those funnies. It’s a good thing I’m home and not in public.

    I love hanging out and talking to other bloggers. It’s pretty much the only reason that I keep going to this one conference.

    And always yes to buying things with a coupon like that. Letting free money go to waste is just a shame.

    Okay.. so your puppy dog has the sweetest little sad face EVER! What kind of dog is he? He looks GINORMOUS.

    Plunger – HAHAHAHA. Yeah, I wish I could put that up on my facebook wall right now.. oh man, and tag a few people.. *COUGH COUGH FUTURE MIL COUGH COUGH*

    hahaha I cracked up at the Mary Poppins one!!
    Aww Gracie’s face in that photo, what a sweetheart.
    Thankfully, the first thing Hawkeye does is rip the squeaker out of new toys and kill it. I think she hates it too.

    Totally jealous of the blate! If you ever venture to Montgomery please hit me up!

    I love the dress and it was a good deal, new clothes are so much better when you get them at a great price.

    I LOVE the Mary Poppins meme, so funny.

    i laughed so hard at the plunger old shit thing. hilarious. and yes to the gif not moving. i’m like eff you stupid non moving gif.
    and omg yay i was in Olivia withdrawals, how cute is she?! my mother in law always buys the most annoying obnoxious toys for our cats, most of them they hate, but there was this one that looked like that but it was a bird and it made bird noises – i swear i can hear that thing in my sleep. it got thrown out many moons ago, and yes sadly, they dont play with they other part of it (the springy part) anymore. i am a bad cat mum but i was going insane.
