Friday Favorites

Hello there Friday! I woke up this morning to a gloomy, cold rain and I can’t help but think the day would be better served netflixing on the couch than toughing it out at work. Sigh. Why didn’t I win that billion dollars??? How about a little Friday Favorites to brighten the day!

Favorite Song: History by Lauren Alaina – I totally shazammed this one while watching the championship game. They kept playing little pieces of it and I was like damn that is a good song!

Favorite Recipe: How amazing do these sweet potato, whole 30 nachos look?? Totally making them this weekend!

Favorite Work Out:I shared a 30 Day Fat Burn workout last week too but you have to check this out as well! This is a Dynamic Strength one and it is so good!

Favorite Purchase: I scooped up these Valentines Day pretties in the dollar bins at Target! Hearts, sequins and glitter? Be still my heart.

Favorite Lust: I saw this anchor at Target last week and I neeeeeed.

–I could have written Steph’s post on Instgram myself. For 2016, let’s start being a little more real again. Please? Do you not realize that your staged photo with the vase of flowers, the cup of coffee, gloss and the gold sea urchin is the same as literally everyone else?

Favorite Funnies:

This video the Buzzfeed posted after the game Monday night…


My face Thursday morning at work when I didn’t become a billionaire…

Faking a  smile is hard work some days…

How I feel between all the annoying talkers in our building and the loud metal on metal banging from construction outside my office…

When I heard the Auburn fans in our office chit chatting Monday before the game…

Basically Monday through Thursday…

After the several phone calls I had to make with the insurance company about my car…

Linking up with Amanda. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

    Those nachos! So have you had energy to workout since you started Whole30, it was it just tough the first week? Or at all? Similar weather here today, too, so I’m wishing I’d have picked the winning numbers! Happy Friday, girl!

    Yum, the nachos look amazing! Also, Steph’s post on Instagram was great! I just like real photos so much better! Also, awesome V-day scores at Target! Love the mantle decor! Have a great weekend 🙂

    Those nachos look great, except I don’t like sweet potatoes. I filed my taxes this morning and made sure I got the deduction of military reservist’s travel! Have a good weekend!

    Hmmmm, nachos. I want nachos. Oh, whole 30, when do I stop hating your guts?!?! I’m still craving pancakes! Your Target dollar bin scores look awesome. And hahahah to your Home Alone — I feel like that at work without annoying talky coworkers and metal banging.

  • Reply Amy January 15, 2016 at 9:55 am

    I think I am going to have to make those nachos too, they look amazing and as close to bar food as I think we can get right now! Have a great weekend!

    Those sweet potato nachos look amazing! And super versatile. Thanks for sharing!
    I loved Steph’s post on Instagram too. So perfect! Just be a human already, will you people?!
    Have a great weekend!

    Those sweet potato nachos look absolutely amazing! If you make them, you have to tell us how they taste compared to regular nachos! You found some awesome goodies at Target, and for such good deals! I wish that there was a Target closer to our house, but I know that I would be spending all the monies because I’d be there all the time! And adulting is no fun sometimes, especially when dealing with insurance companies! Hopefully you’re all done though!

    You’ve been doing so well with your whole 30! I have been following along and I am so happy for you! Those nachos look delicious! You must report back! I love those Target finds. Sequins and glitter equals a BIG yes from me! Have a wonderful weekend!

  • Reply Stephanie January 15, 2016 at 10:37 am

    I told Steph I’m doing an instagram hashtag of my blog name (I’ll post about it on Sunday) for everyone to use for their non-staged photos. I prefer the real life ones too! Caroline has always been my favorite on Vampire Diaries, speaking of that last gif. That just solidifies it!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo January 15, 2016 at 11:04 am

    OH MY GOSH – those sweet potato fake nachos – those looks AMAZING!!!! I need to pin that.

    Also gotta save that workout – I LOVE free good workouts

    Whole30 nachos? YES PLEASE.

  • Reply kristen January 15, 2016 at 12:42 pm

    those nachos look so good – you’ll have to let me know because i’m partial to my doritos lol but i’m willing to try. most importantly, if they get soggy. i hate soggy shit.

    i loved steph’s post about instagram. i don’t mind if people want to be fake and pose shit, but what i want is for it to stop being ‘you HAVE to do this’ you ‘SHOULD do this’ like, no, not everyone wants to be instagram famous, leave me alone and let me do me. basically what we were texting about last week!

  • Reply Mattie January 15, 2016 at 1:20 pm

    I want those sweet potato nachos! Yum! Totally going to check out those tax deductions…I don’t want to miss out on anything!

  • Reply Meghan January 15, 2016 at 1:23 pm

    Love all of these funnies! Especially about Thursday morning after not becoming a billionaire. Also, Target has such awesome home decor, its hard to leave the store without buying so much of it, haha! Hope you have a great weekend!
