Friday Favorites-Spring It’s Really Here

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Happy Friday I am so excited that this week is almost over!  I feel like a broken record but this one seemed really ridiculously long no?  This weekend I need to catch up on life and my DVR ;-)  Let’s get into these Friday Favorites shall we?

Favorite Song
“Find You” by Zedd ft Matthew Koma and Miriam Bryant.  This is such a feel good song and amazing HIT training for working out.  The song has lulls and then when that beat kicks in…time to take off.  Great sprinting song especially the last minute!

Favorite Recipe
Doesn’t this recipe just remind you of a Summer recipe?  It is so easy to make!  I had some frozen (of course it was) fish from..(you guessed it) Costco.  You can find the recipe here. (please pin from this original link!)

Favorite Workout

I’m not going to lie….this chick was a little too peppy for me.  I like high energy but she was a little too much. With that said this is an arm workout but it’s really a total body.  I mean the plank jacks in the beginning I was yelling at her and her little man friend who was doing the “advanced” workout.  Getting ready for bathing suit season whether I like it or not.

Favorite Realization
If you haven’t noticed yet I am all kinds of OCD…like lock my door check it 10 times and still walk back just to make sure.  However you want to know that one thing I don’t care about?? Toothpaste…more specifically how I get it out of the tube.  I take it out….squeeze and dispense.  Mark is quite the opposite of OCD and doesn’t mind if his shoes are not lined up in a perfect line in the closet with those shoe forming hinge things of death (I cannot tell you how many times I’m caught my finger in one of those things shoving them back into his Cole Haan shoes). Anyways….I digress so tonight I was brushing my teeth and I had to hold back a laugh when I saw this.

Oh that’s right my friends….someone has been systematically rolling the toothpaste behind me.  I’m not going to lie a little piece of me liked seeing some of my crazy rub off.  How do you get your toothpaste?  Squeeze from the bottom down?  Just anywhere in the middle?  The random question of the day let’s get a poll going!

Favorite Funnies
How many times have you told yourself it’s time for bed and then an hour later of your life has flashed by because of Pinterest?

Nothing irks me more when someone says I look tired or ask if I’m sick…”oh thank you for noticing I look like crap today and just pointed it out to me”…is what I feel like saying back.

Isn’t this the straight truth??
That feeling when you think something is crawling on your neck but you convince yourself it’s just a stray hair but they you swipe at it….and it clearly wasn’t a hair

(in my case the other day it was a Bee crawling on me….a freaking Bee….like how does that even survive indoors for that long?)
Pretty much how I look on a daily basis driving in FL but especially yesterday when the person in front of my was asleep at the wheel….
(via tumblr)
I was trying to go straight naturally they were turning right…they got to make it while I got stuck sitting through another light cycle.
(via tumblr)
When people ask me how I manage to keep all my jobs, planning a wedding, blog….basically life straight.
(via tumblr)
After my stairs story yesterday can we all start praying now this doesn’t happen to me at the wedding.  I mean y’all saw the stairs I have to walk down right?
(via tumblr)
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!!  Any fun plans???  xoxoxoxo

    Oh my gosh… besides being able to finally watch your shows, don’t you LOVE being able to clear your DVR? Pete will watch shit and leave it on there for months and it drives me CRAZY! It needs to be deleted immediately after watching, dammit!

    Aww I’m sure the wedding stairs will be just fine!! I just get my toothpaste from anywhere in the tube but Brian is the same as Mark! And he’s not OCD about anything else really!

  3. March 21, 2014 / 12:30 PM

    Lol really don’t you love when people say you look tired. When I was pregnant I used to get that often from older ladies lol. I am soo happy Spring is finally here. We are taking the kids to a birthday party this weeekend(A classmate of Luke’s! It should be really fun!

  4. March 21, 2014 / 12:31 PM

    OMG THAT LAST GIF! is it horrible that i laughed SO HARD and watched it for a good 5mins??

    as for toothpaste, i generally squeeze it where ever and then as it gets empty, i start to roll it.

    Vodka and Soda

  5. March 21, 2014 / 12:35 PM

    Oh dear – that poor woman!!! That won’t happen to you – don’t worry!! I love all the gifs – they are spot on!! As for the toothpaste – we use this thing (sent you the link in an email) basically a toothpaste squeezer and it really does last like another month!!

  6. March 21, 2014 / 12:37 PM

    Love that thing about Pinterest… so me! And the toothpaste graphic! And OMG that bride! She should have had those guys walking with her. That is horrible!

  7. March 21, 2014 / 12:40 PM

    haha that toothpaste thing made me laugh. im pretty ocd about a lot of things but i squeeze the toothpaste from the middle and it drives h nuts! ;)
    have a great weekend!

    That poor bride!! haha that will not happen to you. And I’m the worst about toothpaste. I squeeze from anywhere and everywhere, then try to smooth it out to the top maybe once every three days. It’s laying on its side, I don’t know how it keeps accumulating at the bottom of the tube? Not gravity… Happy weekend!

  9. March 21, 2014 / 12:44 PM

    Girl, can I just say that my hubby and I may have had a few newly wed disagreements over how to squeeze tooth paste?!!! You should be squeezing and rolling from the bottom!!! The hubby grabs in the middle and leaves hand prints, lol!

  10. March 21, 2014 / 1:00 PM

    I find myself looking forward to this post every week now! So freakin’ funny. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

  11. March 21, 2014 / 1:04 PM

    Omg, that last gif! I feel so bad for that bride! Um, that fish taco bowl looks amazing! I want that in my belly right now!

  12. March 21, 2014 / 1:06 PM

    OH MY GOSH YESSS! 90% of the time it is my hair I feel on me, but that 10% of the time I think, “oh, it’s just my hair”, IT’S NOT! That recipe looks so good– I only occasionally like fish, it’s weird, but we’ve been trying to incorporate it more into our weekly meals! Have a great weekend!

  13. March 21, 2014 / 1:29 PM

    That recipe looks yum! That last gif… Omg I watched it over and over lol! I fall into the Pinterest game all the time, just a little more… Lol!

  14. March 21, 2014 / 1:49 PM

    LOL OMGGGG I scream GOOOOOOO at least 5 times every time I’m in the car. The joys of living in Florida… I guess we have to have some downside since our weather is usually pretty awesome. And I couldn’t agree more, they need to stop putting police sirens in music! It freaks me out every time!! I’m always like “crap, what did I do now??”. I feel so bad for that girl that fell down the stairs, ouch. Trust me, you won’t fall down the stairs. Drive down them, maybe ;) I think every bride freaks out about falling but it rarely happens! Have an amazing weekend!!

    That salad makes me want it NOW. And YES so true on the toothpaste, what the heck. Have a good weekend girl!

  16. March 21, 2014 / 2:13 PM

    I use one of those toothpaste little oval bottle things… crest. That made no sense but essentially its not a tube to deal with.

  17. March 21, 2014 / 2:15 PM

    Oh haha seriously hopefully that doesn’t happen to you but thats pretty hilarious! Love Zedd for running music.

  18. March 21, 2014 / 2:26 PM

    That recipe looks amazing!! I hate working out with peppy people! It’s like they are enjoying it way too much while your sitting there dying! I am totally guilty of squeezing the toothpaste from the middle.. I am just to lazy to make that perfect roll from the bottom. I REALLY hope you don’t do that stair tumble! I will pray for you!

    I love that song!!! That taco bowl looks GREAT and so fancy, when I cook it looks like a toddler made it. :(

    My husband is the crazy OCD one and nags me about not rolling the toothpaste from the bottom. Please don’t be that bride! I don’t want to see you end up on YouTube!

  21. March 21, 2014 / 2:49 PM

    I am just like you…totally OCD about everything yet I dont care about toothpaste and just squeeze where ever and go on my merry way!!! And Pinterest is a black hole for time! I can spend hours upon hours and not even realize. It is a real struggle!

    Dont get me started on bad driving. IT IS EVERYWHERE! Ugh! Get a brain people!

  22. March 21, 2014 / 2:52 PM

    That workout video looks so intense! And you’re right, she’s almost too high energy for me.

  23. March 21, 2014 / 2:55 PM

    Hahah you always find the best gifs, that last one has me cracking up! I’ve been having a serious case of road rage lately too…. people in KY drive SOOOO slow. Oh, and they think it’s ok to park their car outside of a bar (probs forgot their credit card from the night before) when there is clearly no parking there and they are blocking an entire lane of traffic. AHH!

    Have a great weekend girl!

  24. March 21, 2014 / 2:57 PM

    Before toothpaste tubes converted to what they are now, it was easy to roll from the bottom. I now roll from the bottom AND secure with a binder clip so my efforts aren’t wasted.
    Another household tip: when you think you have used all the product in a plastic tube of say, moisturizer, there is still several applications left. Simply cut the tube open about 1 1/2 inches from the bottom to access the product and then fit the bottom piece inside the top piece. Viola! About 2 weeks more of smooth skin.

  25. March 21, 2014 / 3:08 PM

    Ahh! Squeezing the toothpaste tube in the middle is my BIGGEST pet peeve! It drives me crazy. If I’m staying at someone’s house and I use their toothpaste, I’ll fix it for them, hahaha.

  26. March 21, 2014 / 3:10 PM

    Speaking of planning a wedding, I ordered my dress!!!!!!!!!!

  27. March 21, 2014 / 3:24 PM

    You are NOT going to fall down those stairs! Bahaha, I totally feel you on the busy thing, these days. I miss sleep ;)

  28. March 21, 2014 / 3:38 PM

    Omg omg omg… how do you ever recover from falling down the stairs at your own wedding??? I’d call the shit off right there, can’t be a good omen!!! But it was hilar!!!!!

  29. March 21, 2014 / 4:08 PM

    You and I can officially never be in a car together. We will either contribute to each others aneurysms or go to jail for flashing excessive and threatening bitch face. I would have raged!

  30. March 21, 2014 / 4:27 PM

    I swear to you J and I practically make a game out of how long we can go without having to buy new toothpaste. We squeeze that mother effer DRY! And it’s all wracked to hell when we’re done. We are not the neat and tidy toothpaste people over here. Although that was one of our biggest fights when we first got married. J used to be a “from the bottom to the top” and I’m a “squeeze from the middle or wherever works” kinda gal! hah

  31. March 21, 2014 / 5:09 PM

    OMG the bride. OMG. NO!!! You’ll be perfect, girl! Break in your shoes!! Haha. Xx.

  32. March 21, 2014 / 5:18 PM

    that diagram of the tooth paste. spot on,.

  33. March 21, 2014 / 5:52 PM

    Hah definitely a fellow toothpaste-roller as well. Sirens in music make me want to vomit in fear every. Time.

  34. March 21, 2014 / 6:35 PM

    OH MY GOODNESS! Falling down the stairs in my dress is my biggest fear in life right now lol. Seriously. And I LOVE that Zedd song too! Definitely made my new running playlist! :D

  35. March 21, 2014 / 7:33 PM

    LOL at that last GIF. Poor girl! How awful but hilarious!!! I am sure that won’t happen to you but make sure someone is video taping JUST IN CASE ;) Have a great weekend chica!

  36. March 21, 2014 / 8:29 PM

    OMG I love your Friday posts the most!! The Jersey Shore gif love and is so me!! The last gif had me laughing so hard.

  37. March 21, 2014 / 11:39 PM

    Recipe looks DELISH!! And I’m always having some stupid flyaway and thinking it’s a bug! Lord knows if I SEE an actual bug in the office (that is nowhere near me).. then I think that it’s going to land on me and I itch forever. UGH

  38. March 22, 2014 / 12:48 AM

    i am so OCD sometimes, but other times I can care less where all my dirty laundry sits, etc. Your “funnies” made me laugh so hard…and I only pray that you don’t fall down a bunch of stairs at your wedding ;)

  39. March 22, 2014 / 12:48 AM

    People tell me I look tired a lot. I’m all, “Thanks for telling me I look like poop. Appreciate it.”

    Enjoy your weekend!

  40. March 22, 2014 / 1:50 AM

    The OCD sounds like me and my husband but he’s the OCD one and I’m not. Plus, I was listening to that song while reading your post and my husband says “that song is a jam. who is it?” Thanks for sharing and your GIFs are the best! Have a great weekend :)

  41. March 22, 2014 / 2:38 AM

    Oh my gosh! That recipe looks so good! I should try to make something like that soon! yummy!

  42. March 22, 2014 / 2:38 PM

    That recipe looks so good! (Minus the fish because I don’t like fish haha) And I cracked up at your toothpaste subject! I hate the tubes! I hate having to squeeze them and deal with getting every last pinch out of it. So I just buy the other style toothpaste (not sure what it’s called but it comes out easier!) It’s funny how everyone has their own little OCD qwerks :) Have a great weekend!

  43. March 22, 2014 / 10:10 PM

    HAHAH the eCard that says “I would go to bed if I could find the bottom of the pinterest page” is so true for me! It is unbelievable how interesting Pinterest becomes when I should be sleeping!

  44. March 22, 2014 / 10:37 PM

    I am all kinds of OCD about tooth paste too. DG and I can’t use the same tube because the way he squeezes it out stresses me out. And I can’t wait to try that recipe! Sounds so yummy. Also, that work out! Thank you for posting!

  45. March 23, 2014 / 8:32 PM

    All of those ecards and gifs were hilarious! My favorite being the first one about Pinterest, funny how time flies while you’re pinning away.

  46. March 24, 2014 / 4:04 AM

    That recipe looks so delish! Definitely going to have to give it a shot!

  47. March 24, 2014 / 5:19 PM

    Oooh, where were these houses? We live between Westchase and Town & Country and are house hunting, and it is brutal and sooo expensive! We started looking in LOL, but that seems SO far, though you get so much more house for your money…decisions, decisions. Um, I took a 3 hour nap, yesterday ;) I totally needed it after Saturday’s wedding!

  48. March 24, 2014 / 5:27 PM

    I just died laughing at the Andy Cohen gif, it’s even funnier the second time seeing it!
