Friday Favorites – It’s Not Fall Weather Yet Here

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Happy Friday!  Seriously y’all with your Instagram posts with boots and scarves…..It was 89 degrees this morning on my drive to work.  Summer and humidity is here to stay in Florida that is for sure!  Tomorrow I’m excited for a #bloggerperk outing. The Summer of Rum fest should be a great time!  Let’s roundup the Favorites from the week!

Favorite Song

Can this video get any better?  I mean it has my girl Rita Ora and T.I looking like he always does…  Skip to 1:45 for the mini movie to stop and the actual song to start.  Iggy Azalea “Black Widow ft Rita Ora”.

Favorite Recipe

Amazing Summer recipe!  Has been on repeat.  Salad Cups with Quinoa with Shrimp, Avocado and Lemon Dressing full recipe here.  Please make sure to pin from the original source.

Favorite Workout

Love this quick workout, 15 minutes to the point and some of my favorite Barre moves.  Full workout here.  Please pin from the original source.

Favorite Purchase

I know it’s still 90 degrees out but I got it now because the small is already on backorder till October and it’s August……Vests are so perfect for Florida’s labile weather.  If you have had your eye on it get it now before it is sold out and you try to find it on ebay and it’s twice the price… know it’s happened before.

Favorite Funnies

Guilty…..not going to lie

Isn’t this the straight truth?

Or ice cream sandwiches…
Seriously though when does Scandal come back on?

When I’m #hairbrushsinging or dancing around my condo like a weirdo and Mark comes home early

Yup pretty much

When I try to hide the cookies and other delightfully tasting treats high in a top shelf so they are harder to get to…..doesn’t always work

Let’s dance it out into this weekend shall we?

    “That’s crazy” I do that all the time too! And I love, love, love IGGY!

  2. August 15, 2014 / 5:02 AM

    Those salad cups look so delish! I am also guilty of saying ‘that’s crazy’ and ‘omgosh’ haha. Too funny, I thought I was the only horrible one. Also that puppy reaching is me every day of life haha short people problems.

  3. August 15, 2014 / 5:20 AM

    I am so ready for Scandal to come back on!!! Are we there yet! I’m not ready for fall or cold weather but I did buy myself a vest last week. :) And that recipe looks looks delicious.

  4. August 15, 2014 / 6:33 AM

    It is not boots & scarves time here yet, either & I’m in Delaware, so I don’t know what these scarf-wearing people are doing! Ahhhhh I do say ‘that’s crazy,’ when I have no idea what’s going on lmao. Bahaha I have that pumpkin thing pinned on my pinterest – the pumpkins are coming!!! I have Scandal on my to-watch list, I’ve never seen it.

  5. August 15, 2014 / 9:57 AM

    Cute vest! The poor pug and his short little dinosaur arms, aww. Seriously when is scandal coming back on?! Countdown to all the fall shows coming back has begun!!

  6. August 15, 2014 / 10:27 AM

    That recipe just looks YUM!!!! And I’ve been seeing that vest everywhere!!! Happy friday, awesome friend of mine!

  7. August 15, 2014 / 10:45 AM

    I keep seeing that J.Crew vest every where! I’m not surprised it’s on Ebay for way more than it should be. So crazy. And so jealous you get to go to Summer of Rum Fest!!! That sounds like so much fun! Why are all the cool things in Tampa?!? :) Happy Friday!

    <3, Pamela

  8. August 15, 2014 / 10:51 AM

    So if you check out what i have my eye on in my post – it’s what you just bought…I bought it this morning!! :) Ready for my fall line-up ASAP!! I really need to try that recipe…maybe with brown rice instead of quinoa!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend love!

  9. August 15, 2014 / 11:22 AM

    I bought that vest the day J. Crew Factory listed it! And I love the recipe! Also, that some e-card about “that’s crazy” is totally me! Have a great weekend, lady! xo

  10. August 15, 2014 / 11:36 AM

    I am loving Black Widow lately! And all things quinoa :) Happy Friday Amanda!

  11. August 15, 2014 / 11:36 AM

    Going to have to try the at home workout you shared!! Love the feather piano guy and your leading description…is that Elton John?!

  12. August 15, 2014 / 11:41 AM

    Have you ever tried crockpot chicken tacos lettuce wraps?? SO GOOD!!

  13. August 15, 2014 / 11:51 AM

    Haha “Chocolate tastes as good as skinny feels,” I’m pretty sure I had one of those moments the other night! Have a great weekend :)

  14. August 15, 2014 / 11:53 AM

    J. Crew has been killin’ it lately! I have to keep deleting their emails so that I’m not tempted to look :-P

    As for fall… I don’t know why everyone jumps on the IT’S FALL bandwagon in August! Fall doesn’t start til the end of September, and for us Florida gals it won’t feel like fall until at least November. But that won’t stop me from decking out the house with fall decor and pumpkin candles!

    Happy Friday :-D

  15. August 15, 2014 / 11:55 AM

    i really want that vest but my arms always get cold so that doesnt really work! hah it’s still HOT in Charleston so im not really feeling like fall will be here ever. but when it does decide to show up ill be one happy lady! xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  16. August 15, 2014 / 11:59 AM

    That vest! Amazing!!! I’ve seriously had to contain myself in Hobby Lobby with all the fall stuff out already. I just want it all in my house. Like yesterday!

  17. August 15, 2014 / 12:02 PM

    That is definitely how my pug acts, desperate for food even with a full belly!! Love those quinoa lettuce wraps, yummy!! Happy Friday girlfraannd!

  18. August 15, 2014 / 12:31 PM

    You and Katie both posted about the vest today and now I MUST have it! It’s gorgeous and I love vests! And thank you, I am not ready for fall yet either. :) Have a great weekend lady!

  19. August 15, 2014 / 12:43 PM

    Those salad cups look delish! And I need to herself back into workouts after moving! Love this 15 minute one! :) Happy Friday lady!

  20. August 15, 2014 / 12:43 PM

    It’s not quite boot weather here either, but dang it feels good! It’s been like low 80’s the past couple days. And a girl could get used to that kinda weather! Love your gifs – as always!

  21. August 15, 2014 / 12:48 PM

    i will still love him as Noel from Felicity. He was such a sweetie on that show!!! happy weekend!

  22. August 15, 2014 / 12:49 PM

    I’m so excited for the fall!! Only because I love fall clothing. And I’m really tired of having black feet from my flip flops. I love the 15 minute work out, so gonna try it. Love love your new vest. Perfect for fall. Have a fab weekend!!

  23. August 15, 2014 / 12:56 PM

    Black Widow is perfection. I actively scan the channels to see if it is playing. Maybe I should just download the song…

  24. August 15, 2014 / 1:18 PM

    I love that vest. I’m going to need one soon here. It’s only been in the 70’s lately and it’s been in the 60’s in the morning/night. So weird. It is still mid-August, right? Enjoy your weekend, Doll! Xo

  25. August 15, 2014 / 1:25 PM

    If you entered into a gif contest, I’m pretty sure that you’d win!! I’m soaking up every single summer day. All of these people who say that they’re ready for fall are nuts haha. I feel like hearing that kinda grinds my gears.. Anyway, moving on!! Thanks for sharing that work out. Since every new workout that I’ve tried recently ended up being a total fail. Have a wonderful weekend lady! :-)

  26. August 15, 2014 / 1:35 PM

    Okay, that song is so freaking catchy, but it also kind of cracks me up. It makes me think of those psycho girls in HS who pretty much just unleash their absolute crazy on a guy if he breaks up with her and sucks him back in. You know the kind. I don’t hide treats from myself, but I do hide things from J. He has a tendency to just finish things off without a care in the world. More than once he finished off my pita chips (I tend to have some hummus with pitas for lunch–among other things) so now I buy a bag that’s out int he open for him, and the others I hide. Marriage. They don’t tell you about this shit. haha!

  27. August 15, 2014 / 1:40 PM

    Yummm that recipe! Another combo that sounds perfect together but I never would have though of. That pug kills me haha. I feel its (and your) pain. Yes please let us dance our way to the weekend as fabulously as men in 70’s suits and Afros!

  28. August 15, 2014 / 1:47 PM

    I found this “barre” inspired workout on YouTube the other day and decided to do and it was horrible and the girl was so strange and she “held” a plan for 2 minutes but her booty was way up in the air the whole time and basically….I can’t wait to try the workout you just suggested. Ha! Happy weekend!

  29. August 15, 2014 / 1:49 PM

    I love that vest and I’m pretty sure I’ll have to add it to my closet this winter. That salad recipe sounds a lot like what I made for lunch today. Happy weekend!

  30. August 15, 2014 / 1:50 PM

    Hahaha I’m dying at that meme of Scott Foley and the reference to Felicity, which is one of my all-time favorite shows. Pretty sure scandal is back on the end of next month … hooray! I’m jealous you got your hands on that vest – I’ve wanted it for SO LONG, but I can’t quite justify the price yet to my husband. Oh well – I’ve already come to terms with the fact that it probably will be gone before I order it! Have a great weekend!

  31. August 15, 2014 / 1:50 PM

    Um yeah I can’t even pretend its close to Fall here in Charleston. haha! I have that herringbone vest and its my absolute favorite, it goes with everything! Love the chocolate E-card :) Also I was a huge fan of Felicity and had no idea Noel is in Scandal! haha

  32. August 15, 2014 / 1:59 PM

    I know!! It still so hot here, at least you’re north and will get cooler sooner. It’s going to be sweltering down here for a looong time!
    Those shrimp cups look really good!!

    Have a great weekend girlie xo

  33. August 15, 2014 / 2:00 PM

    that last gif is perfect!
    it’s not really fall weather here either, but i swear we didnt get much of a summer, so boo all around.
    i am in love with that vest but i just cannot bring myself to pay that much for a vest! i have a black one from Gap that I like well enough.
    OMG seriously though when does Scandal come back?! I miss Scott .. er Jake.

  34. August 15, 2014 / 2:18 PM

    I had my window open overnight and woke up feeling chilly. Summer is definitely already on its way out here- boo!

  35. August 15, 2014 / 2:33 PM

    I seriously am about to purchase this J. crew vest in beige- totally not too early right? haha Love that salad cup recipe! Have a fabulous weekend! xoxo

  36. August 15, 2014 / 2:38 PM

    It’s really cold here today (and by really cold I mean low 50’s so it’s not even that bad, certainly not scarf, boots, or ski jacket weather!! BUT it’s cold for August, that’s for sure!!) I’m not a fan when people switch over to winter gear before it’s even snowed or before it’s below zero. Haha, I try to push that back as far as I can so that when it’s -30 I’m not freezing my buns off because I wore my parka when it was 0. Haha mini tangent over. Sorry!

    That vest is so cute!! And I do love pumpkin everything (I mean.. Fall, I love Fall) haha :) Happy Friday!!

  37. August 15, 2014 / 2:43 PM

    Bahahaha it’s so true that I always tend to say “that’s so crazy!!!” too when I really have nothing else to say about the matter lol. And OMMGGG that video and song. FULL of yes. I have that on my running playlist and hit it every single time!

  38. August 15, 2014 / 2:43 PM

    Felicity!! That’s where he’s from, I knew I recognized him from somewhere! It’s only been in the mid 60s so far today and yesterday and it makes me sad – I’m not ready for it to be fall yet. Fall fashion is bomb though, and that vest is gorgeous!

  39. August 15, 2014 / 3:10 PM

    i can’t stop listening to that iggy song either. it’s ridiculous how catchy it is. everyone wants that vest!!

  40. August 15, 2014 / 3:13 PM

    Hahaha… we picked the same song. I have a total woman crush on Rita. Love her. Still hot as hell here too but we did have some cool mornings which was really odd. I’m ready for fall. And my go to phrase is… “is that right” like more of a statement cause I really don’t care or believe you at all if I say that lol

  41. August 15, 2014 / 3:21 PM

    I wish it was 89 degrees here! Summer completely skipped us here. I’m over the fall weather already and it hasn’t even truly started. I could use some summer weather right about now

  42. August 15, 2014 / 3:37 PM

    I’m in Florida, but I have to say, there was a chill in the air this morning! Now, the high is supposed to be like 92, so I’m sure the “chill” is gone now! lol And I LOVE that Iggy song!! So on repeat!

  43. August 15, 2014 / 3:38 PM

    Cant wait for more Scott Foley…SCANDAL-HOLIC!!!!
    Yes… bring the Pumpkin ON!!!!

  44. August 15, 2014 / 3:46 PM

    Yessss I LOVE that song! It’s on a couple of my running playlists, it’s SO GOOD! And as much as I love summer I really can’t wait for all the flavors of fall, give me all the pumpkin and apple flavored things!!

  45. August 15, 2014 / 4:35 PM

    Black Widow has been my jam for a month or two now. It’s just such a great song with a perfect beat. Love it.

    I WANT THAT VEST SO BAD. I just can’t justify the price tag.

    Have a good weekend lady!

  46. August 15, 2014 / 4:35 PM

    haha! Yes, let’s dance into the weekend! :) I can’t believe the weather! I mean, I don’t really mind that it’s not hot as balls outside…. however the last couple nights of 40 and 50 degrees is a little much for August! :) I’m lovin’ that ecard about pumpkin flavored everything! That’s right up my ally! Have a great weekend girl! :)

  47. August 15, 2014 / 4:51 PM

    “That’s crazy”…. So true!!

  48. August 15, 2014 / 4:53 PM

    I have had my eye on that vest, love it! And I too am guilty of the “that’s crazy” comment…i think people are starting to catch on though hah

  49. August 15, 2014 / 5:32 PM

    Great minds think alike!! I need that vest in my life — can’t wait for it to get here! Have a great weekend lady!

  50. August 15, 2014 / 6:05 PM

    your funnies make me crack up every week. and “that’s crazy” i do that all the time. and i’m so obsessed with scandal, i can’t wait for it to come back!

  51. August 15, 2014 / 7:17 PM

    I love any song that Iggy touches!

    I seriously can’t wait until Scandal comes back on! I always say “that’s crazy!” even if I am listening. Oops. That pug….I die!!!! Nothing like getting caught being silly.

    I am so ready for fall! football, pumpkin flavored everything, pretty leaves, the clothes, all the fall scented things, cooler weather! Just yes!

  52. August 15, 2014 / 10:36 PM

    I JUST pinned that vest on pinterest yesterday! Great minds!!! I also saw an article that Starbucks in bringing back all things pumpkin way early this year. Not quite sure how I feel about this.
    MWAH! Happy weekend! <3

  53. August 16, 2014 / 2:23 AM

    Iggy is my GIRL! Pete saw her at Lollapallooza a couple of weekends ago and was texting me while she was on to make me jealous, haha!
    I can’t wait for Scandal to come back on either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Withdrawal.

  54. August 16, 2014 / 2:25 AM

    Always some classic finds on your Fridays! Love the Pumpkin Season reference

  55. August 17, 2014 / 4:58 PM

    I cannot get on the pumpkin bandwagon…however I love that fall means the return of salted caramel.

  56. August 18, 2014 / 4:44 PM
