Friday Favorites-Who’s Ready To Party????

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

Happy Friday! I can’t tell you how much it warmed my heart when Biana texted me in the morning yesterday and was like “girl where are you at???”   I’m not going to lie, I missed you guys yesterday!  Is it crazy that I miss my blog friends more than my IRL friends?  I mean…..it’s okay the IRL friends don’t know what that stands for anyways. I’m just kidding…..or not but in all honesty I was doing a million things and just couldn’t muster up any creativity.  Plus Mark is sick I was being nice and taking care of him……

So instead of just posting something rushed and lame, I decided to channel all of that energy into today’s post (no pressure or anything).  I really need to finish some of my draft posts.  Does that happen to you?  I have a great idea, start it but usually something else more exciting comes around and takes over.

Anyways.  What are you up to this weekend?  My one girlfriend and bridesmaid (yeah!) Abbey it’s her birthday so we have a beach weekend planned I can’t wait to be doing this all weekend.

(Until like 10 pm like who are we kidding?)


Let’s get into my favorites from the week!

Favorite Song
This was hands down my favorite spin song.  Anyone who is reading this who use to take my spin class probably breaks into a cold sweat when they hear this song.  It has the best climbing beat and then 3 sets of jumps.  For running it’s a great tempo song with short sprinting bursts.  For everyone else it has a killer beat and some sweet dance moves if I say so myself.  D’Banj “Oliver Twist”.  It’s a little funky but I really dig it.  What do y’all think?


Favorite Workout

Alright tiny short season is rapidly approaching.  Are you getting ready??  This workout should definitely help kick start you!  Please pin from the orginal source!
Favorite Recipe
Can I get a show of hands of people who are about one pot cooking?  Which in my mind translates to one pot cleaning.  I substituted shallots instead of yellow onion and I did put it over some whole wheat pasta that was already cooked.  Full recipe here.  Please pin from the original source!

Favorite Discovery

One of my girlfriends at work forwarded this to me, 36 People Reveal The One Baby Name That Makes Them Want To Punch Someones Face (warning not PG language).  I was like pounding my desk laughing so hard. Remember this post about being able to pronounce my patients names. This guy takes it to the next epic level. This excerpt is my favorite

Favorite Funnies.
I saw this pinned on one of my friends boards and from one crazy OCD girl to another, this summed up everything so perfectly.
I mean I think this is quite the accomplishment and I can do it all one handed.
I feel this way multiple times throughout the day.

I’m sorry this one just cracked me up.

How I feel when I go to bed and see my 6am Barre class is completely full with a wait list.

Then when I wake up and look and 10 people have cancelled class.

When I was looking at all my Instagram pics as of recent….yup this pretty much sums it up.

I mean feel free to follow me here (bahahaha shameless plug).

I really hope I don’t look like this when I car dance….but I have a sneaking suspicion it’s close.

How I felt like when I was in my car for the two hours it took me to get home from work and I was stuck behind that one car in traffic that refuses to inch up to the car in front of it and leaves enough space for people to keep cutting in front of them and I start screaming out this

Then I got out of my car and felt like doing this.

I was thinking about making these Friday favorites a link up.

Anyone interested in joining me?  Basically it is just a roundup of your favorite musings from the week.  You pick whatever you want.  I tend to follow a template of songs, workouts, recipes, discoveries and the crowd pleasers….funnies. Let me know if you are interested and I’ll get this party started but I also don’t want to be the girl who throws and party and winds up like this

You can also pretend like you haven’t seen this part and just tell me something else bahahahha moving on……so let me know!  Hope you have a fabulous weekend!  xoxoxoxo

  22. Nadine Lynn says:

    I will totally join in on your link up, it is basically what I do most Fridays anyways!!! :)

    I am dying over all your memes today. Especially the Facebook one, the one about how you look dancing in your car because that is totally me!!!!, and the CDO one because it is only logical.

    I am all about dirtying the least amount of dishes possible as well!!!!

    Have a great weekend! I am totally jelly of your beach trip!

  26. hahah aw i love this. dont worry about posting every day either — sometimes its better to wait when you have the time to write a post — and im sure mark appreciated you taking care of him! love the one pot meal ….bc my husband cooks and i do the dishes so that means ONE dish! win :) :) ps i died during barre yesterday…we had to do a bunch of squats at the barre. when is it going to get easier!!!!!!!!! have a great weekend! xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  27. Those names are hilarious and I am so glad my boss is out of the office so I could laugh out loud to myself like a weirdo!

  28. Holly Madison named her baby rainbow? Ugh.

  29. I’m not going to lie either – I totally missed you yesterday, too! I definitely feel you on the afternoon commute. I commute a little over an hour and i have been getting some road rage for sure lately. Some people just should not be allowed on the roads! :) I can’t wait to read the baby names!!! Hope you have an awesome beach weekend!

  30. UMMM yes, let’s do this!!!!

  31. brooke lyn says:

    hand is raised REAL high for one pan cooking!

  32. Love the facedbook one! Def. a link-up! OMG Lasagna?! WTF! That kid is jammin!!

  33. LOL the car dancing….we should join forces and do it together while the other stupid a**hole won´t move that inch forward, just to freak him out! hahaha
    And the link up sounds cool, I do my weekly hightlights already on fridays so I would participate for sure!

  34. Tracey says:

    So much hilarity in this post! I love your Friday posts so much. They always make me laugh!

  35. One pot meals truly are the best! It takes so much effort to cook and clean- but the eating is always so quick. Or maybe it’s just me who stuffs her face so quickly!

  36. I just wet my pants reading the ridiculous names, followed by CDO!! I’m officially naming this kid Doggen (last name Hawes) because it’s like Haggen Daas backwards, and that’s my favorite food. BOOM! Hahahaha

  37. Hahah YES CDO. And yelling in traffic. Daily. Love the link-up idea! Have a great weekend! XO

  38. Yum that recipe looks amazing and one pot?! I’m sold! Hate dishes ugh! Don’t you HATE traffic?! I don’t know what’s worse Tampa or Orlando traffic haha hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

  39. oh my gosh…. as always those gifs and memes had me laughing so hard! I’m all about creative/different names but some of those are so crazy! I’ve known someone who has a “-” in their name and it’s pronounced dash, I can’t think of what the name is but it’s like really…?? Also, love the linkup idea as I seriously love these posts!

  40. Daleian says:

    I have to try that workout! And “facebooking” people will probably be a real hobby for me!

    I just thought you should know I nominated you for the “Very Inspiring Blogger Award” because these posts are gold and I’m so happy to be your reader! So, thank you!

  41. Ok, I’m not one to talk cause I just fell off the face of the earth for 2 solid weeks, but MAN I miss my favorites when they take a little break. You always crack me up so you’re not allowed to be one of those slackers, ok? Mostly because I don’t have your number and can’t stalk you via text :P

  42. Myra says:

    Girl, yes to the link-up! I am dying at the “facebooking” thing hahaha.

  43. Kristen says:

    i laughed far, far, far, (FAR) too hard at this. you’re hilarious.

  44. Chloe says:

    I’m planning on joining you tomorrow! Fridays should always be favorite days!

  45. LOLOLOLOL! CDO <- Amen to that shit! One pot cooking <- YES YES YES! Especially considering the husband doesn’t ever help do dishes :) Bookmarking the sexy legs work out… although I need them a lot sooner than 6 months. lol. :)
