Friday Favorites- Seriously How Is It June Already??

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Happy Friday!  Was it just me or did this week seriously fly by?  This weekend we are staying in town so I am looking forward to spending some quality time with Mark and trying to get a few classes in.  I encourage everyone to check out the other blogs that linkup!  Great way to find new reads.  Let’s get right into it!

Favorite Song

Fun Summer Song with upbeat vibe.  For my running and spin gals out there perfect for tempo runs and then with interval sprints throughout.  Crystal Fighters “You & I”

Favorite Recipe

Another man approved salad.  It is delicious!  Full recipe here.  Please make sure to pin from the original please.


Favorite Workout

I posted this picture on Instagram (you can follow me here) after completing this workout.

Don’t the Tone it Up Girls have the best lower body and ab workouts ever?

Full workout here

Favorite Find

Clearly you know my love for Mara Hoffman but yeah clearly not her prices.  So I am always on the hunt for similar looks at prices us normal people can actually afford.  So I’ve been stalking this dress this Summer and naturally it’s sold out….like everywhere.

As I was walking in the mall the other day after some returns…..I saw this dress in the window and took a sharp detour, tried it on and loved it.  Clearly it’s not exact but it has the same look minus the top fringe and with a sheer bottom.  Imagine with some tan arms, messy top knot after being out in the Summer sun and a bold lip.

Find it here for a fraction of the splurge price

Favorite Cheat

Has anyone tried these yet???

Favorite Funnies

Pretty much me everyday after work and on the weekends

Well this and by watching the nightly news (which I had to stop doing)

Yup…..more times then I care to admit

A little Tupac California Love the other day on the way home….word
I’m sorry this is just adorable and so true.  When scrolling through my Facebook feed..

When I get brought something that I clearly didn’t order and I’m waiting for the server to come back and notice something isn’t right
(via tumblr)
When I showed y’all this fabulous dress in this post and urged you to get it quickly because it will sell out…..
I mean when I uploaded it the night before they had it in every size…..and then it sold out.  I’m not saying it was me…..but…..when someone on my Facebook page the next morning told me it was sold out I immediately felt like this

To the person at work who tells me the last patient of the day cancelled and we are now done for the day…..and it’s Friday!
(via tumblr)
Okay now it’s your turn!!  Tell me your favs from the week!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend! Tell me your plans!! xoxoxo

    haha that cat gif is too funny. Also I posted a blue Forever 21 dress last Friday and Sunday when I went to order one for a friend … sold out! haha cept I know it wasnt me lol Also loving the maxi and that salad … Yum!

    Sometimes I am thankful I am vegan, because it’s the only thing that prevents all those Chips Ahoy cookies from being in my mouth. And yet I still wish I could taste them. That would be a perfect summer dress with some sandals or wedges, except I would not have a nice sun ‘glow.’ I have to keep the pasty white or go full lobster haha.

      Oops, forgot to put a link back in my post. I will fix in the morning :)!!

    My wallet is starting to really hate you… ;) That maxi from Francesca’s is ridiculously cute! I haven’t even seen those Chips Ahoy cookies or I guarantee you they’d be in my belly right now. Definitely making a trip to Publix today… between those and the gelato I’m set for the weekend! Happy Friday love!!

  7. June 6, 2014 / 10:55 AM

    “man-approved salad” is a real concern–I have to be strategic if I want to convince my husband that yes, this salad is a perfectly acceptable dinner…

  8. June 6, 2014 / 11:06 AM

    LOVEEEE that white dress!! Your workout pic made me think, when’s that video coming ;) Did you try those cookies?!? I want to, were they good?

  9. June 6, 2014 / 11:08 AM

  11. June 6, 2014 / 11:49 AM

    I haven’t tried the birthday cookies but love the salted caramel ones! And you’re going to rock that dress! I follow the Tone it Up girls on Insta- seriously, they might give me a complex though.

  12. June 6, 2014 / 11:59 AM

    90’s hip hop? haha YES girl! I entertained people by sending a snap chat of me rapping gangsta’s paradise last week! Ummm about those cookies…never seen them and I feel like I might be going to the store later JUST to find them. Great dress btw- you look fab in it too! Happy Weekend!

  13. June 6, 2014 / 12:00 PM

    Birthday frosting chocolate chip cookies. Holy hell. Why would you share that?! WHY?!?!?!? It is my two favorite things in the world…frosting and cookies all in one little pretty package. I am going to try really REALLY hard to pretend I never read your post today. When I am crying on Sunday night that I polished off an entire package…I am going to be contacting you for encouragement.

    The 90’s ecard. YES!!!! It’s totally legit.

  14. June 6, 2014 / 12:03 PM

  15. June 6, 2014 / 12:11 PM

    I missed last week’s Tone It Up because of being sick… so I’m doing week 5 right now and they ain’t playing! It’s such an awesome workout. Also, those cookies? Stop it. They look insanely delish! And you know I bought that Mara Hoffman look-alike, right? Thanks for posting! Happy Weekend! xo

  16. June 6, 2014 / 12:36 PM

  17. June 6, 2014 / 12:38 PM

    I always love the songs you post in these wrap-ups, they go straight to my running playlist and this is no exception! That white dress is gooooorgeous and yes, I can see wearing it exactly like you described. Thanks for sharing & have a GREAT weekend!

  18. June 6, 2014 / 12:41 PM

    I totally suffer from Criminal Minds syndrome. hahaha I love that ecard and I might need to steal it for Thursday Thoughts next week.

  19. June 6, 2014 / 12:45 PM

    That almost dress, is pretty much perfection!!!! Way to go lady!

    And those cookies, oh my goodness, yikes I need!!!

  20. June 6, 2014 / 12:45 PM

    The link to the workout you did isnt working :(
    I am always trying to fit in a tone it up workout too, Im actually sore as we speak because I did one last night. I love that white maxi you got, a white dress in the summer is always a good idea.
    That cat made me LOL.

  21. June 6, 2014 / 12:52 PM

    I love that song! Dang those cookies… I love anything with extra frosting… my favorite! And I did go look at that dress immediately upon reading and all that was left was a M… better luck next time:) I am going to do that workout tonight!

  22. June 6, 2014 / 12:58 PM

    I love that maxi find! Maybe one of these days I’ll get my act together and link up lol. XO

  24. June 6, 2014 / 1:12 PM

    I love the workouts that you share because I’m trying to come up with good stuff to do at home and I trust your opinion so thanks for those!

    I can’t bring myself to try any of those flavored cookies. Not sure why.

    I definitely suffer from that Criminal Minds thing except with Law and Order.

  25. June 6, 2014 / 1:17 PM

    Your posts always make me smile. I love that salad will have to make it. That dress is fab. Little Sklynn is to cute!! Have a great weekend.
    Best, mree

  26. June 6, 2014 / 1:22 PM

    so happy it’s friday! for me it took forever but that could be because i am working extended hours so I can leave at NOON today!! YA!

    that dress is really adorable- I have a francesca’s in my mall and I might look into it!

  27. June 6, 2014 / 1:23 PM

    The dress sell-out was TOTALLY you. Why can’t you get commissions off of that? Happy easy weekend dear!

  28. June 6, 2014 / 1:36 PM

    I definitely purchased that striped cut-out maxi from Forever 21 you posted about. Because…because! I needed it, obviously! It’s like stalking your blog means you are my own personal shopper and I’m okay with that. ;)

  29. June 6, 2014 / 1:47 PM

    Haha, I am always paranoid after I watch criminal shows…I just finished Binge Watching Dexter and felt like ANYONE could be a killer, lol. In other news, those frosting cookies?! Oh mah gawd.

  30. June 6, 2014 / 1:48 PM

    I think I’m actually drooling over those cookies – birthday cake oreos are my favourite cookie ever so those sound like perfection. You have such good taste, everything that you find I just want to bring straight into my closet! That white dress is so beautiful, I must find something similar here immediately.

  31. June 6, 2014 / 1:54 PM

    I need that dress!! I’m going to be stalking in the hopes of catching your good luck! And, how do those cookies exist?! I need them slash do NOT need them! Have a great weekend girlie!! xo

    Hey girl hey!! TGIF! Omg I just about died laughing with that cat gif. I get so unreasonably mad when a server gets my order wrong. And omggg that maxi…I totally agree with you. SO expensive…I just can’t justify spending that much on a maxi especially since I hoard so many already haha.

  35. June 6, 2014 / 2:36 PM

    Seriously these are always my favorite posts of yours…you know that ;) I NEED THOSE COOKIES! Gimme all of them!

    & girl that dress is ROCKIN!

  36. June 6, 2014 / 2:37 PM

    Keep those cookies far far away from me. Will eat whole bag!!!

  37. June 6, 2014 / 2:40 PM

    I feel like it was just New Years, this year is going by so crazy fast! I am checking out that recipe as soon as I’m done typing this– looks like my kind of salad! You have the best luck finding the best dresses– love the details on that one! Happy Friday!

  38. June 6, 2014 / 2:47 PM

    Mmmm. That salad looks delish!

  39. June 6, 2014 / 2:48 PM

    I do the same thing with the 90’s hip hop lyrics and so does my husband. Last weekend we had a picnic at the park. At the end of it he said, “today was a good day” and we both full on starting rapping the lyrics from the Ice Cube song to each other. My daughter was like, “what’s an AK?” Bwahahaha! Have a fabulous weekend, Amanda! xo

  40. June 6, 2014 / 2:53 PM

    LOVING that white dress from Francesca’s! They have some of the cutest stuff ever :) Have a great weekend!!!

  46. June 6, 2014 / 6:06 PM

    Please tell me you also lick your paws, er, hands, while waiting for the waiter to come back haha. That cat looks straight evil. Loving your new dress (another win!). I think I need to buy those cookies, bring them to work, eat one, and leave the rest in the kitchen. They’ll be gone in 20, so no real temptation will ever exist, right? Happy weekend, lady!

  47. June 6, 2014 / 6:16 PM

    Seriously, how is it June?? Hopefully this summer goes by fast cause this hot weather in Arizona is not fun! That dress is super cute and I have that lululemon top on coral… it’s my current favorite! Have a great weekend love!!

  49. June 6, 2014 / 11:42 PM

    That dress is amazing! I was in Francesca’s today actually, but I didn’t see anything like that. Otherwise, it probably would be hanging in my closet right now. I hope you have a fantastic weekend, lady! XO

  50. June 7, 2014 / 12:03 AM

  54. June 8, 2014 / 4:34 AM

    Ummm that dress is perfect! Love the colorful embroidery against the white! Cracking up at the wave ecard because that was totally me the other day! This older man in the parking lot waved and said hi in my direction (thinking he was just being friendly) so I smile and say hi and wave back, then he starts talking like he knows me and I am like huh, just to turn around to see another person talking back to him behind me hahaha! Opps! I just got in my car and left ha! Hope youre having a nice weekend!

    HELLO FRIENDS AM LINDA COLLINS FROM CANADA MY BEST DECISSION I MADE ON HOW TO GET MY MARRIAGE BACK once when i went to Africa in February this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is {Prophet Harry} he is really powerful and could help pray to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and prayers for good job and financial blessings .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this {Prophet Harry}, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 3 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the {Prophet Harry} only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is prophetharryprayerhome@yahoo.com
