Friday Favorites

Oh hello there, three day weekend. We are so close!!! Just a few hours at work and then three glorious days!!!

Favorite Song: Cheap Thrills with Sia and Sean Paul. Oh, how I have missed you Sean Paul!!!

Favorite Moments:

–Getting to see my nephew graduate kindergarten. You guys, he is just the cutest! He hated the “little kid songs” that they had to sing and you can see him up on stage pulling at his shirt, looking bored and rolling his eyes. Proud aunt over here!!! Also, he was 1 of only 7 in his class to get all 221 site words. Such a smart kid! Afterwards, my sister, nephew and I headed to his favorite restaurant for a graduation lunch. If you are wondering what his favorite place is….it is a Chinese buffet. LOL! haven’t been to one of those in years. My sister and I may have eaten our weight in cheese wantons. Whatever. You would have too!

–Favorite conversation with said nephew:

Me: So ummm is that your girlfriend???

Nephew: Um, yes. (face turns red as he hides from his mom)

Me: She’s real pretty!

Nephew: Ugh! Why do you have to say that?!?!?!!

Me: What happened to Gabby?

Nephew: (He crosses his arms.) She kissed Braydon on the playground and mommy said shes a ho, so I had to let her go. 

Me: Wait, what? 

These kids are five and six!!! Hahahahahaha!

Favorite Recipe: Memorial Day is basically the start of summer! And what better way to celebrate summer with some summer food? Macaroni salad with pancetta??? Yes, please!!!!!

Summer Macaroni Salad:


Favorite Beauty Product:I grabbed two Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour shadows when they were BOGO 50% off at Walgreens last week. From the Leather collection I grabbed Creamy Beige and from the regular collection I got Bad to the Bronze. I am loving them both so much. Normally I am not one for drugstore shadows, as I tend to buy one high end palette a year to supplement whatever my supply is. I had heard some great things about these and at the price point I figure, what do I have to lose? With my UD primer, these stay in place all day, are highly pigmented and do not smudge or crease. Love love love!

Favorite Links:

–Have you heard about the changes that Victoria’s Secret is undergoing? So sad they are getting rid of their swimsuits!

–Speaking of changes, Target is hopping on board the change bus. The grocery changes will be welcomed by me, as I shop there every week for 90% of our food!

–Time to whip out that sunscreen! No one has time for skin cancer and looking like an old leathery ball sack. But with all the new studies that have come out regarding the scary bad chemicals that are in most of our “trusted” brands we have been using for years….it is hard to know where to turn. This article has a great list to get you started!!!

–Disney Channel is having the most epic throwback ever this weekend!!! Cant wait to watch Smart House again!

Favorite Funnies:

last night sitting on the couch with my husband I said, 'I love you.' he asked, 'is that you or the wine talking?' I said 'it's me.....talking to the wine.':

Funny eCards – Yes, You’re Going To Laugh:

I bet there are some that have felt this way about me lately. Lol:

Here's to it finally being warm enough outside that we can complain about how warm it is outside.:

From the window, to the wall! To my big comfy bed I crawl! Down this big long hall! Ahhh sleep sleep sleep sleep.:

How I feel about the future of our country…

After a hair cut..

When someone upsets friend or family…

How Chris probably feels every day of his life. Everyone calls him when they have computer problems.

When Target is out of your size…

While dealing with people…

Linking up with Amanda. I hope you all have a safe and fabulous Memorial Day weekend!!! And be sure to take some time to remember those who fought for us to enjoy such things!

    “She’s a ho” Hahaha, love it. That’s gunna be as a mom. I loved Smart House. Throwback’s are the best! The Zenon movies were my favorite! I heard VS is changing it up. Bums me out to hear that. Swimsuits are hard items to order over the internet. I want to be able to try them on then and there. Cheers to three day weekend! Enjoy.

    How adorable is your nephew?! And YAY for Target! I do most of our grocery shopping there as well, and I LOVED how a gift I ordered on Sunday evening arrived on Tuesday. Much quicker than their shipping days of the past when it was basically slow-boated. Happy Memorial Day Weekend gurlie <3

  • Reply Kelli May 27, 2016 at 10:55 am

    Mommy said she’s a ho so I had to let her go. Classic kindergarten line right there! Also good to know I’m not the only one telling my kids that kind of stuff. Haha.

    Yesss for the unofficial start of summer finally being here! I used to love the color tattoos and am sure mine are old and dried out by now so I should pick up a new one– bad to the bronze is so pretty! I hope you have a good weekend!

  • Reply Dani May 27, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    i swear by green beaver sunscreen! i use eminence organics on my face as well; it’s pricy but totally worth it.

    Muggles. OMG YAAASSSS.

  • Reply ellesees.net May 30, 2016 at 9:42 am

    my tip is to store the color tattoos upside down to help prevent them from drying out!
    and congrats to your nephew! one of my graduated from kindergarten too!

  • Reply Cara May 30, 2016 at 10:32 am

    Target and Amazon are basically taking over the world. I just ordered some stuff from Target, on sale online and it was ready for store pickup in 30 mins. Amazing. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders May 31, 2016 at 6:07 pm

    Your nephew is too funny! I can’t believe that he called her a ho for kissing another boy, but good for him for kicking her to the curb! I’m so bummed that I missed the Disney throwback weekend! Hopefully they have it again soon!

  • Reply caitlin @ candyfloss & persie May 31, 2016 at 7:17 pm
