Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: Sometimes you just need to throw it back old school and rock out! In the End – Linkin Park

Favorite Recipe: I made this honey sriracha chicken on Tuesday night and it turned out really well! Chris seemed to like it too.

Sweet and just a little bit spicy, these Honey Sriracha Chicken Bites disappeared lightning fast. Tender, bite size chunks of chicken cook in just minutes and then are tossed with an irresistible sticky glaze.:

Favorite Workout: It is about time to start getting ready for bikini season. While you wont see me sporting a bikini, I am aware that I wont be hiding behind sweaters for much longer. Check out this 30 day ab challenge! You even get rest days so there is no excuse.

Strengthen and slim your entire midsection to help diminish belly fat and love handles in just 30 days!:

Favorite Drink: Have you guys tried the new Butterscotch Frappuccino from Starbucks??? OMG!!! It is amazing and now my favorite drink from them. Ever.

Butterscotch Frapp

Favorite Purchase:Late last year I scooped up this black necklace at Walmart for $5. It is one of the most complemented accessories I have.


So a few weeks ago when I was there, I checked out the accessories again and found this gem….for $5!!!!!


I hate Walmart. Despise it. But these cute accessories for $5??? I will allow my blood pressure to raise for an hour to go shop the accessories! They did have a few $5 necklaces on their website, I didn’t take the time to see if they had these exact ones or not. The black one comes in white, and the clear crystal comes in a darker gray color crystal stone as well. I think I might have to go back for those two before they are gone! The white one would be perfect for summer!!!

Favorite Lust: Have you been to Target lately?? Duh, of course you have! But have you been in their shoe department??? They have a DV line!!!!!! I am obsessed with my DV bootie wedges I got from Nordstrom Rack on Black Friday and now I want to grab some of their affordable pieces from Target!

How perfectly casual are these???

And these!!!

And I love these too!

Target was running a deal on them last weekend for $5 off a $25 DV purchase or $10 off $50. I bet it is still going on until at least Saturday. I might take my own advice and scoop some up! Spring is about here and I need some new shoes. I could get away with wearing all of these to my casual office!

Also, I loved these Mossimo brand sandles!!!

Favorite Pins:

I want this pantry!!!

#ForTheHome - Pantry with solid shelving is officially on my DIY Hot List !:


This bed looks so cozy!



Love the idea of a shelf in the kitchen to make room!

Use a small shelf to have things accessible but off the kitchen counter. So much easier to clean:

    I love that 30 day ab challenge, looks great! Those seated russian twists burn so good! Also, I feel the same way about Wal-mart. I normally can’t stand to be in there for longer than I have to, but their accessories are so adorable and at that price, who can pass it up? Such cute necklaces!

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine February 26, 2016 at 8:48 am

And can we talk the new Butterscotch at SB, I had a white scotch yesterday, a tall only, one pump white mocha and one pump butterscotch…Holy YUMMY!!! May your weekend be full of laughter, good food and great moments!!

    Ugh…. bikini season, not ready! That chicken recipe looks awesome, I love anything with sriracha! Going to try to get on Fuller House this weekend! Too many things in my Netflix cue!

    Ugh Walmart. I almost hate when I find something good there by accident. hahaha

  • Reply Kelli February 26, 2016 at 9:25 am

    Fuller House, I keep saying I’m not going to watch but then I think I probably will.

  • Reply Rebecca Jo February 26, 2016 at 9:44 am

    I’ve been wanting to try that butterscotch frapp – I bet its amazing… & FULL of calories. Yikes! OK, so maybe a small is in my future.

    That ab workout – totally pinning it – that’s my worse area & I need to get it ready to see sunlight!

    I literally gasped at those shoes – especially the fringe sandals!!!

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots February 26, 2016 at 9:52 am

    That Barbie meme is me Bahahahaha! And omg those necklaces are amazing, so cute! My favorite one that I got at NY&Co a few years ago broke and I found another cute one at American Eagle, but that’s good to know Walmart has some for so cheap!

  • Reply Laura February 26, 2016 at 10:23 am

    Ugh, Walmart. those necklaces MAY be worth a trip in there, but I have to prepare myself for like a week to go in there, so they’ll probably be all gone. I love that Barbie meme, so true! And thanks for giving me more shoes to spend my money on. I’m going to tell B it’s your fault.

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer February 26, 2016 at 10:32 am

    I keep wanting to rock one of those high-waisted bikinis but I think (I know) I’ll look ridiculous. That chicken looks amazing! You’re rocking the good recipes lately! Happy Friday, friend!

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston February 26, 2016 at 11:11 am

    Definitely going to be making that chicken recipe sometime soon – sounds amazing! Loving all the Michelle Tanner gifs!! Have a great weekend! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    That necklace is super cute! Just love Mary Kate & Ashley. Are they still having lots of life issues? I haven’t heard much about them lately, hope they are good. That bed! I really like the look of upholstered bed, and of course I love grey!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders February 26, 2016 at 11:27 am

    I love Linkin Park! I used to rock out to them at swim meets in high school to get ready for a race! I’m loving the Butterscotch Frappuccino too! I thought that it was so much better than the Latte! Those sandals are so adorable from Target! I love the slip on ones especially! And hooray for Fuller House and all of your Michelle Tanner funnies! I just wish that she was going to be on the show too! I hope you have a great weekend!

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth February 26, 2016 at 11:28 am

    Your funnies were awesome today. DV is seriously one of my favorite shoe brands, I just took out my leopard flats this morning. Now you are telling me Target is carrying them and on sale? I need to find some room in my closet!

  • Reply Dani February 26, 2016 at 11:49 am

    I used to blast that Linkin Park song and sing it (terribly) at the top of my lungs lol. That Bob Marley meme used to be on the printer at work! And YES to the fax meme- I actually had to fax something the other day and didn’t even know we still had a fax machine at work, let alone where it was. And then I had to try to remember how to use it. Happy Friday!

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! February 26, 2016 at 11:51 am

    I didn’t know the new Butterscotch drink is also in Frappaccino form???? Welp, now I know what I’m getting this weekend!

  • Reply Stephanie February 26, 2016 at 12:26 pm

    I kind of get the social media thing but at the same time, kids have always been cruel to each other and been bullied etc etc, this is just a new way. so (a) who is parenting these kids? you’re not controlling what your 12/13 year old does online? I got a cell phone at 16 my parents still controlled what I did with it. Parent your effing kids or don’t have them and (b) kids today are weak. They grew up with participation trophies and no spanking or yelling or whatever else so they hit teenage years and they fall apart the second some aspect of their life isn’t constantly validated and praised. Raise your kids to realize that not everyone is going to like you all the time, there will always be someone better at something than you, and you’re not always going to get what you want. Maybe there’d be a lot less issues. Rant over.
    I got Uncle Jesse – “You’re carefree and slightly immature, and, of course, the coolest person in your clique.” Picking just one 90s album was literally the hardest question I’ve ever answered in my life, and I took the bar.

    That necklace is so pretty! $5 is a steal. Nice throwback song! I used to love Linkin Park.

  • Reply Mattie @ Northwest Native February 26, 2016 at 2:17 pm

    I want that chicken, NOW. Oh my gosh I saw the DV line at Target the other day and freaked! I really want those wedges, and those sandals with the black and white thick strap over the toe and the cognac at the heel (such a great description, I know). I also love your necklace and can’t believe it was $5! So happy you included so many Michelle gifs since you got her on the quiz. 🙂

  • Reply Jenna February 26, 2016 at 2:33 pm

    Honey sriracha anything would be my everything. Oh, and I LOVE that pantry! Gonna steal that and pin it!

    I love the new frap flavor at Starbucks, but I’m irritated with their changes to the loyalty program. I’ll likely end up going less as a result.

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter February 26, 2016 at 2:53 pm

    Guess what girl? I just finished the Martian’s audio recording that you sent me a while ago! So good! I listened to it while walking. Thank you again for sharing it. You saved me $25! Okay so about your favorites – that Linkin Park song is one of my favorites! Great pick! I also love all the shoes you have up! Those gold ones are fabulous! Congrats on the necklace finds! Doesn’t it make you like them so much more that you got a deal on them? I am at Walmart constantly and never thought to look in the accessories department! Thanks for the heads up. Have a great weekend! xo

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista February 26, 2016 at 3:47 pm

    Drooling over that siracha chicken! I was at Starbucks today, and was super excited to try the new butterscotch frappe, and they had a sign that they were sold out – boooooo! LOL at that fax meme, that’s exactly how I feel! And yay for all the Michelle Tanner gifs just in time for Fuller House tonight <3

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family February 26, 2016 at 4:53 pm

    These gifs have me so ready to watch Fuller House tonight! I got Uncle Jesse in that quiz. 😉

    That bed looks fabulous. And the “fax” one… hilarious!

    OMG – the Full House gifs . . . so funny! I have some $3 earrings that I got at Wal-Mart that I love, but damn, I hate to go there. Hate it. 🙂

  • Reply Duckie February 28, 2016 at 6:04 am

    That ab challenge makes me tired just looking at it. Lol. And I’ve been looking for a tassle necklace for a while now but haven’t found one I really like. Too bad we don’t have a Walmart here! Or a Starbucks because those frappes would definitely be on my list!!!

  • Reply kristen February 29, 2016 at 12:35 pm

    bahahaha love all the michelle tanner gifs. you are definitely her 😉 especially the workout selfies one because we totally do that hahahaha

    what an awesome deal at walmart! and all of those target shoes are adorable, but especially the wedges.

    i don’t want to think about bikini season anymore. no.

    So that fax meme… We had someone out to do an estimate for a privacy fence at House.. and because he had to cancel our appt, he said he’d just swing by there and do the estimate if I told him where I wanted the fence. I told him I’d text him my preferences and he could just email me back the estimate.. and that MFer said to me, uhhh I don’t really do email, but I can fax it to you.

    EXCUSE ME? WTF is this 1998? How are you even running an actual business in 2016? Where are the cameras? This is candid camera right?

    Actually, that last part would have been super creepy because I took the call while we were at brunch and I had to go to the bathroom to talk to the guy.. so if there were cameras in the bathroom… well, no bueno.

    He ended up just calling me and telling me his price estimates and said he’d keep the paperwork for if we decided to go with his company. /facepalm Yeah, that sounds like a pleasant experience. NOT.

    Listen, I just went over to the Full House quiz and the very first question is asking me to pick my favorite 90’s album. WHAT SORCERY IS THIS?! How can someone except me to pick between Ace of Base, Alanis Morissette, Whitney Housten, Mariah Carey, and The Spice Girls ?!?!?! I cannot. I’m going to clsoe my eyes wave my mouse around and click one.

      I got Stephanie. I’m sensitive and wise beyond my years and a comfort to my friends. I’lllllll take it!
