Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: Where Are You Christmas by Faith Hill – I love this song, I love The Grinch, everything about it is perfect! That and to be honest, I am still not feeling the full Christmas spirit yet this year. I am not sure why? Perhaps it has been the warm weather? Or the fact that I can’t even believe it is December?! Either way, this song gets me.

Favorite Moments:

–Lunch with Laura this week!!! We went to Babalu, one of our favorite places to hit up. They have amazing table side guacamole, the best enchiladas of the day and delicious adult beverages that we may have partaken in over lunch. Rose sangria? Don’t mind if I do!

–Getting this text from my sister, Cooper is freaking hilarious! He is one of my five year old nephews. The fact that he thought about growing a  popcorn kernel tree is so cute. Then telling Tracy that he wouldn’t ask a girl to a dance because she would rip his ear off?? She does threaten that she is going to keep them locked up until they are 30 hahaha. There is some noise about Christopher (my ten year old nephew) asking a girl to their school holiday dance!! And so it begins….


Favorite Work Out: This 20 minute full body workout from Popsugar Fitness is no joke!

Favorite Recipe: After all the holiday indulgence that I partook in the last week, it is time to lighten things up! I still want to keep it fun though, so these Quinoa and Chard Spring Rolls look perfect!

Still stuffed? Lighten up your week with these Quinoa and Chard Fresh Spring Rolls. I light and healthy recipe to get you back on track after your Thanksgiving binge |


Favorite Lusts:

I am lusting over all of the stripes lately! This striped shirt is a great find at $16!!!

I could use this shirt for the SEC Championship this weekend!!! Roll Tide!!!

Favorite Links:

–Stephanie shared her recipe for Dog Poop Soup. While the name might be quite funny, this is serious! Her dogs have been doing so much better since she has made the switch and it has me second guessing the expensive dry food I feed mine.

–Check out LC’s penthouse! Can I just move in to that closet, please?

–Add this one move to your routine to work out your entire body!

–What is the most popular nail polish color in your state? I haven’t seen anyone wearing Alabama’s.

Favorite Pins:

Is this living room not perfection?



I am obsessed with this porch!

    I’m going to try and do some of the inthedrawer prompts, they’re so fun!! Loving all your funnies, especially the WW2 microwave one, totally! Whew, FL is gold probably because it’s the school color for at least three of the universities, lol! Loving your outfit choices and I want to try that workout!

    HAHAHAHAHAH your barbie IG pics are so funny! i love all of them (and lurk them on IG, obvs).

    i honestly think those lettuce/chard wrap pictures use green plastic to wrap the food because my lettuce ALWAYS tears!!!!

    I’m going to need that Bama shirt! I love your nephew’s popcorn tree idea; I could use one myself! Hope you find your Christmas spirit- mine is kind of lost this year, too! Happy Friday!

    I also feel like this year is flying and it doesn’t feel like Christmas AT ALL. I have to put up my tree this weekend and if I didn’t have Taylor I would just skip it altogether. I am not in any way Grinchy but I think maybe because of the warm weather and my move I am not in the mood yet.

    I’m a little scared for the whooping Alabama might put on the gators…like really scared to watch! The baby in the middle of the night – totally me yesterday! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Oh man I love love that Faith Hill Christmas song!! It’s one of my favorites. Have a great weekend.

    There’s a house down my street that decorates their porch like that & I’m always in awe when I drive by… & then see my porch full of faded out rugs & chipped rockers. haha

    I’m pinning that workout right now!

  • Reply Kelli December 4, 2015 at 11:43 am

    I’m going to go with NC’s purple polish because I can’t get behind SC and their gold choice.

  • Reply Amy December 4, 2015 at 11:47 am

    Ummm… no cobalt blue nail polish for me thank you very much! I love all of those decor pics. If I could re-style my house it would be straight out of West Elm! Have a great weekend!

    LC is just perfection! And that workout looks amazing, I’ll have to steal it from you!

    That Mexican food looks delicious. I also haven’t been fully feeling the Christmas spirit! I wish I did, but I just don’t and I don’t know why! Your nephews are hilarious.

  • Reply laura December 4, 2015 at 12:12 pm

    Babalu was soooo fun!! We’ll have to do it again!! I’m so glad for our lunches together — they certainly make the week tolerable!! AND I’m loving your inthedrawer! they’re too funny!!

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots December 4, 2015 at 12:59 pm

    Rose sangria?! That sounds wonderful! And I don’t think it feels like December either and idk why!!

  • Reply alyssa December 4, 2015 at 1:01 pm

    Definitely agree about not feeling the Christmas spirit yet, and I have to agree it’s probably that it’s so warm. Not that I’m eager for freezing temps but I haven’t even had to pull out my winter coat yet. Hard to feel Christmassy when that’s the case!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph December 4, 2015 at 1:06 pm

    Still laughing at poop soup. This week I got a phone call from MFD and he was like uhhh…why is the poop soup blue? HAHAHAHAH It has provided endless entertainment. Thanks for sharing the link.

    I’m leaving here wanting mexican today.

  • Reply Jessi December 4, 2015 at 1:11 pm

    Those barbie pics are hilarious. I don’t have my old toys but maybe my stuffed animals can get into some late night trouble. Still so happy you have Babalu and you love it as much as I do! 🙂

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says December 4, 2015 at 2:00 pm

    I want to know how they determine the most popular colors because Delaware is not that big of a state and I have never seen anyone wearing that one. Ever.

    I love our #inthedrawer challenge. It makes me giggle every day.

  • Reply Cara December 4, 2015 at 2:47 pm

    Aw your nephews are the cutest! I always love hearing the complete innocence of what little kids think/say. & that pop sugar fitness video is seriously like my go-to video here lately. Anna’s always so positive in her videos it actually makes me semi-enjoy working out. You should check out her 80’s style one she just released, it’s actually a really good cardio workout. Have a great weekend! 🙂

  • Reply Tracy December 4, 2015 at 3:01 pm

    A popcorn tree! That’s too cute. Ben would love if that were a real thing.
    I’m actually wearing my state’s polish (gold), go figure! I actually love Alabama’s army green, I’d totally rock that if I were you!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis December 4, 2015 at 4:45 pm

    LOL Cooper sounds like one little character. Those spring rolls look so delish and I love the dog wrapped in a blanket. haha So true!

  • Reply Brittney December 5, 2015 at 11:12 pm

    I have a similar headboard in my dorm room and it really makes me look like an adult with her life planned out (couldn’t be further from the truth, haha!) Also, I love the Barbie pictures—did you create that series? genius!

    Oooh I love that striped top! And I always tell my husband how it’s a turn on whenever I find him cleaning. It’s seriously the truth haha.

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders December 7, 2015 at 8:10 am

    That is too funny that your nephew wanted to grow a popcorn tree! I love hearing about all the crazy things kids say! And Where Are You Christmas and The Grinch never get old! Faith Hill has such a beautiful voice and the Grinch is such a classic!

  • Reply December 7, 2015 at 8:55 am

    i’m not as strong in the christmas spirit like i usually am. in my case i think it’s all the loss and stuff. i’m sure that will change when i’m around the kids!

  • Reply Jenna December 7, 2015 at 11:08 am

    I love Babalus. The lamb tacos… It’s a glorious cross between a taco and a gyro, my two favorite things.
