Friday Favorites 8/12

Happy Friday!!! Hope everyone had a wonderful week! We’re looking forward to a laid back weekend after a productive one last week! Tomorrow we’re going to see Sausage Party because my husband has been dying to see it! Anyone else seeing this one? It’s definitely different, I just hope they didn’t use all their one liners in the previews! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Purre Barre 100 Club:  Wednesday morning, after my Pure Barre class, I went up on the board for the ‘Road to 100’..My goal is to hit 100 before I go on vacation at the beginning of September. Gotta get those Club 100 socks!

Newest Silhouette Creation: If you know me, you know that this is SO accurate. One of these days I’ll become more punctual 😛

Favorite Drink: We currently have a million mangoes and I am OBSESSED with this Coconut Mango Mojito! I make them loosely based off this recipe (but add some silver rum and less than half as much simple syrup…mangoes are sweet!). I’m definitely going to be drinking these for the rest of the summer!

On the Internet: Has anyone read the new Harry Potter book?? On one hand I’m really excited to finally read it because I LOVE Harry Potter, but to be honest I’m pretty nervous to do so. I’m definitely afraid it will be disappointing, but I’m still looking forward to immersing myself back in that world! If it is disappointing, I’ll just read Prisoner of Azcaban again because it never disappoints! And how cute is this little graphic!?

Friday Non-Favorite: Rug shopping!! Oyyyy it’s so much harder than it should be!! I think I’ve looked at pretty much every rug on the internets, or so it seems! I’m debating this one from RugsUSA because it gets awesome reviews..hopefully it doesn’t disappoint!

Happy Friday!! After two weeks in a row of short workweeks, I was expecting this week to be a longgg one, but I’m happy to say it flew by! Tomorrow the hubby and I have a ‘Naples Day’ planned aka visiting all the fun stores we don’t have here, including Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s! It’s probably kind of sad how excited I get for WF/TJ trips!

Favorite Thing I Bought: I am obsessed with the Lilly Pulitzer Run Around Shorts. They’re so easy to throw on on the weekend and look cute while still being comfy…especially when it’s 100 degrees outside! When I saw them in this new print, I knew I HAD to have them and ran over on my lunch break!! Working 3 minutes from a Lilly store has proven to be quite dangerous!

Favorite Thing I Didn’t Buy: This monogram decal…because I made it!! I finally gave in and got a Silhouette Cameo and have been having SO much fun learning all the things I can do with it..my list of things I want to make is a mile long and growing! I’ve already started thinking about Christmas even and am so excited about the all the possibilities 😀

Favorite Find: A freakin All Clad pan!! I was in Goodwill looking for blank white mugs(you know, to slap a bunch of vinyl on), when I saw this out of the corner of my eye. I seriously did a double take and pretty much ran over to snatch it off the shelf (despite the fact that there was no one else around). An All-Clad pan for $7.99 in a size I don’t have already??! YES, PLEASE. A little baking soda and light scrubbing and this thing looks brand new now!

Favorite Thing I Ate: One of my best friends from college moved back to Florida to Jacksonville last week, so I went to visit over the weekend. While we were yelping places to eat the first night, I saw that they had a Sweet by Holly Cupcake Shop. This was one of our favorite spots to go when we went to school in Orlando, so of course we had to stop!! The cupcakes are every bit as good as I remember, especially when you eat leftovers for breakfast with a cup of coffee 😀 Seriously, if you’re in the Orlando or Jacksonville area, I highly recommend checking them out!!

Happy Friday! I’ve been slacking big time on my Friday Favorites lately, but I’m trying to get back on the blogging wagon! Have a wonderful weekend!

Puppies!: On Thursday, an animal rescue came to our office with some adoptable puppies and kittens. Best. Work. Distraction. Ever. They were all SO cute, I hope they found new owners 😀

Thing I bought: We have been wanting some Adirondack chairs for our patio for awhile now, but haven’t been able to find any for a reasonable price. So of course, when I walked into Target and saw these for $5, I put two in my cart immediately. Yes, they’re plastic, but they’re still pretty good quality, and they’re FIVE DOLLARS. I think they’ll do for now. I’ll share pics when the space is done!

Thing I’m Eating: My first jar of Wild Friends Peanut Butter was the Cinnamon Raisin, and I was immediately hooked. I grabbed this one the other day and I just want to eat it by the spoonful! Chocolate and coconut are two of my favorite things, and this does NOT disappoint!! Perfect in oats, yogurt, or just by the spoonful..I can’t wait to try more flavors!

Making Lists and Checking Them Twice: I found this adorable notebook at TJMaxx the other day and just love it! It’s perfectly for jotting down thoughts and notes while at work!

Charlie Pic: I just about died when I got an email at work yesterday saying that the first 30 people to respond could bring their dog to work today. Not even kidding, my coworker and I had a bit of a moment!! Charlie is very shy around people, but he’s very well behaved, so I thought it would be fun to participate. Did I get any work done today? Probably not, but it was so much fun having him there, and he was quite popular and SO well behaved! I guess going to work is not so bad when you can take a nap for most of the day!

Happy Friday! This week was busy, but moved fast, so I definitely can’t complain! We have a fun little weekend planned, but I’m also looking forward to relaxing and sleeping in!

Gingham Love: My JCrew Factory order I mentioned last week arrived! Unfortunately the polka dot pants didn’t work out, but everything else is perfect! I wore these gingham heels to work yesterday and I am in LOVE! They were comfortable all day, and of course brought lots of compliments!

Summer Lilly: I had to stop at the Lilly store and pickup an order, so of course I found myself trying on the new arrivals! This print didn’t really catch my eye online, but it’s so pretty in person!

New Sunnies: I’ve had a pair of Costa del Mar South Points for a couple years now, but unfortunately had to send them in to be fixed right before heading to the Keys. I decided it was probably time to order another pair to have as backup and now I’m thinking these might become my daily pair! If you’re in the market for some new sunglasses for summer, I highly recommend Costas, their quality and repair service is amazing!

Favorite Outfit: I’ve been trying to add more colorful skirts and dresses to my closet, and this LOFT skirt fits the bill perfectly! The front pleat and pockets really make it unique, and the color is just perfect! So perfect that one of my coworkers bought it too…guess we’ll have to make sure when don’t show up as twins!

Friday Favorites 2/19

In the Kitchen: Thursday night I got home and had. to. make. brownies. We were out of flour, but I had almond flour, so I turned to my favorite place for baking recipes: King Arthur Flour. OMG are they good. Even if you aren’t gluten free, these Almond Flour Brownies are DELICIOUS. Fudgy, but not too fudgy. Perfect crackly top. And don’t forget a sprinkling of chocolate chips!

On the Internet: Adele chowing down on wheat grass at Jamba Juice, need I say more?

Wine: Every few weeks Costco changes up their wines specials and I always pick up a couple to try. I wish I had gotten a few more bottles of this Montes Cabernet Sauvignon because it’s the perfect Cab for a chill night at home!

Things I bought this week: I’ve decided that for the remainder of February I would go on a retail spending freeze. To mix it up, I’ve been exploring some of the thrift and consigment stores near my office. My first week went pretty darn well…this might become a bit of an obsession!

Things I didn’t buy: I tend to go for the more classic, versatile looks when shopping for purses, but that doesn’t stop me from lusting over all of Kate Spades quirky bags. When would I use a dalmatian bag? Pretty much never. It’s just so fun though!

Dog Pic: Charlie will always be my favorite!
