Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: Waiting Game by Parson James – Of course, I found this on The Originals. I also believe it was on Grey’s Anatomy.

Favorite Moments:

–This week my favorite moment was having Monday off. Hahaha! Why can’t every weekend be a three day weekend?

–I had to go to Home Depot to pick up some supplies to fix our fence and the guy that I asked for help didn’t treat me like an idiot. That was really nice. Most of the time I feel like I get talked down to when I ask questions in those type of stores. Like why didn’t my husband come instead of me. I am fully capable, thanks. Same goes for car repair places. I don’t have sucker written on my face.

Favorite Recipe: With the hot weather here, all I really want is cold fruit and salads. I whipped my fruit dip recipe back out and it will be on repeat from now through football season! Don’t mind the fancy cool whip dish. Why dirty bowls when you don’t have to!?

Favorite Skin Care:I have talked about Paula’s Choice before, and I think that the products are great. What I like even more is that the website has a search engine to look up other brands and get the DL on the ingredients and effectiveness of them. It is a great place to go to look for some third party thoughts.

Paula’s Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment is the perfect addition to your daily routine if you are looking for youthful, radiant skin. And ummm who isn’t looking for that?? This one product provides both hydration and works to diminish the appearance of aging.

If you are wanting to try anything by Paula’s Choice, head over to their site and enter the code PRRETINOL16 and you can save 20% and get FREE shipping!!! I received this product from BzzAgent, but you guys have heard me talk about Paula’s Choice before. Obviously I am a fan and all opinions are of my own.


Favorite Links:

–Lauren Conrad is going to be doing a Hills 10 year anniversary special on MTV.

–How to decorate your home according to your zodiac sign. Does yours match your style? Mine actually doesn’t. I am a Leo but decorate more like a Taurus or Cancer. Probably for the best since Chris is a Taurus.

–Have you seen Essie’s new line and bottles? I haven’t tried it yet.

Favorite Funnies:

Oh yes:

When someone walks in the break room with something better than your lunch…

When you look at your face and hair after being out in 90 degree weather with 4598% humidity…

    Hmm… Essie’s new line looks interesting! I’m like you with the salads right now. It’s too hot for anything else! Hope you have a great weekend!

    I need to remember to get The Hills special recorded! I hadn’t seen the Essie bottles yet but I like the way they look. I’ve had a steak salad the past 2 days. I love salads!

    I want some of that dip!! I am still giggling about that grumpy cat — gently off a cliff!!! That’s pretty much how I’m feeling about people nowaways! That monkey in a swing is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

    Haha I’m a Scorpio and John is a cancer but we definitely decorate like Virgo!! Scorpio isn’t too far off from me though, actually.

    OMG, Lauren is doing a special! Also, how is it already 10 years! Haha, that makes me feel so old… 😉

    I haven’t heard that song before, but I really like it! Going to check out your fruit dip recipe and I’m totally with you on wishing all weekends could be three days long! This was the first time I’ve heard of the new Essie bottles and it seems like they’ll just take up more space now.

    I’m so excited for that 10th anniversary special on MTV – loved that show! I actually need to figure out how to watch it again!! Hope you have a great weekend! xo, biana –BlovedBoston

    I wish I had every Monday off!! It would be so fantastic! My favorite thing about summer is all the fresh fruit available. Give me all the watermelon, I love it. Have a great weekend.

    That fruit dip looks amazing! And yes, please sign me up for permanent 3 day weekends :(((((

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders June 3, 2016 at 12:16 pm

    I think that my favorite part of this week was having Monday off too, but this week has definitely dragged because of it. I definitely need to watch The Hills 10 year reunion! That would be so much fun!

    I once went to get the airbag in my car fixed because of a recall…the assholes at Honda decided to give me all this paperwork telling me what needed to be fixed/replaced in my car (to the tune of like $5K). Luckily, I’m not an idiot, and we took the car somewhere in my hometown where my parents trust the people, and they were like, “Yeah you don’t need any of this.” I absolutely hate auto repair shops now.

    I hadn’t heard about the Hills special! So stoked now. But 10 years? That makes me feel old. I probably decorate most like a Gemini because I really have no specific theme and just buy everything I think is cute and throw it somewhere hahaha. And my actual sign (Scorpio) is nothing like me, although I do love pretty perfect white-on-white rooms on TV…I just can’t recreate that myself.

    That song was on Grey’s! I know because I liked it and Shazamed it 🙂 I love astrology related stuff, and love the insight from that article. Though I’m a Sagittarius and it said grow a garden, and I’ve killed (almost) every plant I’ve ever owned lol. Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots June 3, 2016 at 12:44 pm

    Yum I love fruit! And those Essie bottles are cool, I need to check them out!

  • Reply Jenna June 3, 2016 at 1:19 pm

    I think my gums bleed in the dentist office because they keep jabbing it with a sharp metal hook. Just my opinion on that matter…

  • Reply kristen June 3, 2016 at 2:16 pm

    well i am straight up ignoring swimsuit season haha. i just had 6 oreos. i’m sleepy.
    so apparently there is another zodiac sign because i don’t decorate like any of them but ESPECIALLY not mine (aquarius) haha. i’m more of a ‘i don’t really decorate i just buy shit i like and hope it fits together’.
    have a good weekend!

    Love these and the bathing suit girl with her belly is so me today. I have my ruffled frint tankini on to hide said belly fat, lol. Mom and I are at the beach to get in a relaxing day before the festivities begin. I’m excited about the Hills reunion but why are none of my friends, lol. Cause they’re old, Bha ha ha!! Have the BEST weekend!!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo June 3, 2016 at 8:24 pm

    I always love the songs you pick.

    That ‘underline’ meme… that is SOOO me. The ones I do in my Bible are always through the words, which REALLY defeats the point when its the Bible 🙂

  • Reply Kaitlyn June 4, 2016 at 1:21 am

    The picture is showed me for my sign was a room with wood ceilings and wood walls. Couldn’t be more opposite of what I like, in fact I used to hate natural wood colored anything lol. I read the description and it was way more on point! It read I love serene colors that remind me of the ocean, so true. That song is really good. Are you up to date on the last episode of Grey’s? I love Grey’s! That fruit dip looks yummy. Looks the perfect fourth of july platter lol. Have a good weekend!
