Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: Home by Rhodes – This song is totally chill and I love it! Plus it is just one of those songs that you can sing along with in the car after a long day.

Favorite Moment: Coming home last night to an Amazon box surprise from Chris. Don’t be jelly of my snuggie. Best. Invention. Ever.


Favorite Recipe: These sweet potato bites with  bacon and avocado look delicious!!!

Sweet Potato Bites with Bacon and Avocado. Great appetizer for game day, football, tailgates, and the super bowl! #glutenfree #healthy:

Favorite Dog Products: My dogs are family, and if I am being honest…they eat better than we do! I read the back of every package of dog food and treats that I buy to ensure that nothing has animal by-products or other nasty things in them. I received a box of FIVE different kinds of dog treats and a coupon for a small free bag of dog food from Purina Beyond through BzzAgent. I immediately flipped the packages and got to studying the ingredients and was pleasantly surprised to see that REAL chicken, beef, fish and veggies were listed as ingredients. No by-product. In fact, a few of the jerky treats were even grain free!!!! Gracie must remain on a grain free diet to help with her allergies and her pancreas. Both Gracie and Mac were obsessed with the jerky treats, they were begged for daily. In fact, now that I give Mac other biscuit treats, he looks down at them and then at me like…hey….where’s the jerky??? Spoiled!!!!! When I ran out of their regular food last week, I picked up a small bag of the salmon pumpkin food from Publix and my dogs have cleared their food bowls every day since! If you are looking for some treats for your dogs, give the new Beyond line a try. You know I only share good stuff with you guys! In fact, blogging about the food wasn’t even a required task…I just really love to see my dogs get excited about the jerky treats!



Favorite App: I discovered this game called Two Dots and I can’t stop!!! Basically you are just connecting colored dots but there are challenges where you have to get a certain amount of colors in a few moves. I am hooked. Did I mention there are anchors in it? You know I love anchors. It’s free, what more can  you ask for? Go download it!

Favorite Treat: I discovered the Project 7 gum a few weeks ago at Target. My favorite flavor is the Grapefruit Melon but all the flavors are wonderful for hitting the sweet spot craving that you get in the afternoon lull. Smores, Key Lime Pie, Birthday Cake…what is not to love?

Project 7 Gum

Favorite Lust: I have heard great things about the Mario Badescu line and I have been meaning to pick up this drying lotion. At only $17 it is a steal compared to other acne treatments out there!

It is also that time of year again to start slathering myself in sunscreen before I go anywhere. After reading several articles last year poopooing all over my normal brands I grab for stating that there are dangerous chemicals in them and such…I want to try that Alba Botanica line. I know that you can find this at Target, grocery stores, drug stores etc so I appreciate the accessibility! I dont always have time to run to Whole Foods for such products.

    I’m jealous of the snuggie, I think I need one every winter!

  • Reply Laura March 25, 2016 at 8:52 am

    Snuggies are awesome! And also, who likes boy bands ironically? I remember everyone being pretty open about their love for JT or Nick Carter. Anyway — that jack in the box meme with the dog is hilarious!! And why the scene in Elf makes me laugh every time!

    Sweet snuggie! I always feel like I am twisted up in them so I got rid of ours…I am a special snowflake, I know. LOL

    Happy birthday to your sister this weekend!

    I hate jack in the boxes!!!!!
    Snuggies are my go-to night wear all winter long… & most spring nights 🙂
    I love Purina is picking up their game with healthier stuff – I love their squeezables for some extra treat in my dogs hard food.

    I love that meme! Haha! I cant wait for Easter to be over and out of my face! So much delicious chocolate everywhere. I have a snuggie and so does my daughter. They are the BEST! I have the MB Drying Lotion but I have not used it yet. It was in my cart for years and I finally bit the bullet recently. I will report back when I use it but it gets rave reviews so I am sure it is good. Have a great weekend! xo

    Those sweet potato bites look delish – you had me at bacon and avocado! And that snuggie looks so comfy!! Happy Easter Weekend and b-day to your sissie <3

    Those sweet potato bites look SO good, I wanna pin them! Also, I have yet to try any Mario products, but tomorrow Ulta is having a sale and I’m scooping some up. Enjoy your weekend!

  • Reply Melanie March 25, 2016 at 11:23 am

    LOVE the memes! They make me laugh every time.

  • Reply Stephanie March 25, 2016 at 11:31 am

    LOL I remember all of those 90s things. I went to junior high in the 90s though – I graduated 8th grade in 99 so I was allowed to like spice girls and BSB unironically. I was the first with a cell phone though, and my own land line number, that was awesome.

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders March 25, 2016 at 1:12 pm

    Hooray for snuggies! My coworker got me an Aggie one for Christmas and it legit looks like you’re a football player! They’re so awesome! Dart definitely eats better than we do! We only buy him the good stuff while I’m willing to let us not eat the good stuff. Hope you have a great Easter weekend!

  • Reply Jenna March 25, 2016 at 1:50 pm

    Those sweet potato bites look yum, and I seriously need to consider getting myself a snuggie. I’m always cold.

    Is that drying lotion a dupe for EradiKate? I’ve been using that for a while now, and if it works just as good, I’d definitely consider switching.

  • Reply Dani March 25, 2016 at 1:59 pm

    Aww you guys are so cute- happy birthday to your seeester! I’ve seen the Two Dots thing before but resisted because I didn’t want to get addicted. Just fell in the rabbit hole. At least I got up to Level 20 before I ran out of lives lol! Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Heather March 25, 2016 at 2:44 pm

    Haha, that dog peeing upside down is hilarious! I have an off brand Zebra snuggie and I think it’s softer than my moms original snuggie. Love them!! Really any snuggly blanket is awesome!

  • Reply kristen March 25, 2016 at 4:28 pm

    omg that dog peeing. hilarious! and that bunny. so funny and now i want a bunny. i also want a snuggie, damn you and your warm blanket robe thing!

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine March 25, 2016 at 4:47 pm

    I need a snuggie now. Guess what happened to me today? I went shopping, bought two awesome pairs of shoes at Macy’s and someone stole them when I was in JCPenney, terrible terrible day I am currently commenting o a few blogs drinking a cocktail and eating chocolate. Thank you for making me feel better with your Friday goodness! Happy birthday to your little sissy and may you have an egg-cellent Easter weekend!

  • Reply Laura March 27, 2016 at 4:18 am

    LOVE the snuggie. I’ve always wanted one but never actually pulled the trigger to order one ;). Also, love the Mario products…they are a good value to start and sometimes go on super-sale on flash sites like RueLaLa, too! So I stock up when I see those.

  • Reply Teh Megan March 27, 2016 at 6:57 am

    That song brings me great joy.

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots March 27, 2016 at 8:33 am

    Our dogs totally eat better than us too! I want to try out that sunscreen! I’ve never found one I truly love.

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky March 27, 2016 at 1:12 pm

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family March 28, 2016 at 6:20 pm

    That Belle “I only date Beasts” one is awesome! I’m sending that to my husband now! 🙂

    Also, my husband LOVES snuggies and for the longest time I made fun of him over it, but now I’ve used it a time or two and have realized how great they are. Love your new one!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis April 2, 2016 at 10:19 am

    Oh those lettuce wraps look divine! I’ll have to try them and I love an excuse to incorporate avocado in my recipes. Kate gave me the paw print A&A bracelet for my birthday a few years ago and of course it’s one of my favorite. That outfit is perfect for spring and would look fabulous on you’1
