Friday Favorites – Wedding Events Going Down

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Happy Friday.  This week started off pretty nice and then just went crashing down in flames by the end of it.  It was a rough one for sure but with that said I am completely excited about this weekend because my Wedding Shower is taking place!  I had such anxiety guys not going to lie.  When I put together the guest list and was waiting to hear back who RSVP’d it felt like I was sitting in the basement in my parents house in Junior High waiting to see if anyone was going to show up to my party.  Luckily just about everyone is coming and I am beyond excited to catch up and see what my Bridesmaid’s have in store for me!  I’m really looking forward to feeling like a bride to be. I have been about as low maintenance, non bridezilla as it gets when it comes to this Wedding and I’m really looking forward to celebrating this weekend!

My little sister in my sorority is flying in tonight and I can’t wait to spend the weekend with her.  I think I am going to recruit her for the Barre video……she will be perfect for it!  Throwback Gainesville pictures.

Let’s get right into these Friday Favorites!

Favorite Song

I heard this on the way home from work the other day.  It was a crappy day and then I got stuck in traffic even thought it was very late at night.  This song came on and I instantly liked it.  I really love songs that build and then just take off.  This is one of them. Definitely had some hand beats on my steering wheel.  I guarantee this is going to be the next song.  Just hope it doesn’t get overplayed out too quickly!  Imagine Dragons – “I Bet My Life”.

Favorite Recipe

One dish wonders.  Trying to sass up quinoa in as many ways possible in my household.  This one passed the test.  Full recipe here.  Please make sure to pin from the original.

Favorite Workout

Sometimes this proves tricky with my wood floors but it just makes me work harder.  Make sure to pin from the original here.

Favorite Purchase

Remember this scarf?  It is finally online.  Seriously get it.  It’s affordable, super soft and kept me incredibly warm when I was up north.  It has the perfect drape and length.  I pretty much lived in it when I was up there.  I have it in the Ecru color but kind of want the ballet pink one now.

Favorite Funnies

The struggle is real…..every time I go to Barre

Especially when you find one that has magically been hidden in trunk for who knows who long….

When someone asks me if I have plans for Friday night

No joke I almost stepped on mine the other night to get something down….so glad I changed my mind and grabbed my step stool that was 10 additional steps away

When I’m trying to stealthy make my way to the kitchen to raid the bag of pumpkin Oreos at the exact same time Mark is walking in

You thought you were having a bad day…..had to show off with the jazz hands….
via Tumblr
side note how excited were you when you saw those bad boys getting wheeled in during history class?
Finally I will leave you with this.  I think this brosif didn’t get the memo that this Taylor Swift song has already been done by a group of frat boys already.  You missed your audition.  His overuse of his staccato jazz hands is super irritating.  That girl looks like she is 5 seconds away from nailing him over the head with her iPad.  I like her distraction technique at the end “play with my hair so my hands are busy and i can’t launch something at him“.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend!  I have been such a good girl and haven’t looked at my registry aren’t you so proud of me???  Tell me all your favorites!!  xoxoxo

    Enjoy your weekend! I love the funnies, I would be the one to accidentally knock over the tv cart and then ruin everyone’s day because they don’t get to watch a movie in class! Happy Friday!

  3. Jess says:

    I have stopped myself soo many times in the kitchen from doing something stupid. I don’t know why sometimes I feel the need to stand on the counter to reach things, ’cause that’s always a good idea.

  4. How exciting for your shower. Hope you have a blast. What was she thinking with the ball. Oh boy. The TV cart was the best thing in high school.

  5. Hope you have an amazing time this weekend! I woke up this morning with a sore throat so I’m just hoping I don’t get sick! All of your funnies are perfect! Definitely so true about the hair tie thing! And loving that Imagine Dragons song!! Happy Friday girlie!

  41. Teh Megan says:

    Hello new song to listen to on repeat! I heard the song the other day on sirius and I liked it to. Now I just need to go read the lyrics and play it over and over and over and drive everyone crazy.

  42. There is always so much goodness, but by the time I get to the gifs I am overcome with hysterics and forget some things I need to comment on. LOVE the KK hair tye meme – just saw it yesterday for the first time. Holy jazz hands, shouldn’t have done it bahah. Have so much fun with your company in town (and that cute scarf!).

  43. You always have the best funnies! Have so much fun at your shower! :)

  44. I pretty much just want to order every scarf Zara has — love this one! Have the BEST weekend, can’t wait to hear all about it!!

    the suffer circuit! what a name! i’m already scared of it. listening to that song now. xoxoox

  47. Hahah is that lady for real in that video? I want to think that she’s playing along with him since it’s a joke, but he’s SUPER irritating so maybe not!

  48. alyssa says:

    I’m sorry you had a rough week! but it sounds like this weekend is going to be amazing and I can’t wait to hear all about it!!

  49. Ahhhh the wedding is getting so close! I’m so excited for you- plus who doesn’t love a good bridal shower? It’s so fun to live vicariously through your wedding. Also exercise balls are fantastic but so, so deadly and I cringe when I look at how people misuse them and get hurt.


  50. Kristen says:

    i am laughing so hard at the gifs.. that one with the tv.. and the ball one.. people are hilariously stupid!
    hope your weekend makes up for your crappy week – wedding shower, yay! that recipe looks so yum – love quinoa!

  51. Have a great time at your shower!!! I can’t wait to hear about it and see the pictures!!!!!
    Quinoa is the shit. I eat it at least 3 times a week. It’s good plain on salads, too!
    I have thrown away maaaany a Tupperware container!!! hahahaha

  52. have a great time! I can’t wait to see pictures of your wedding shower!

  53. I’m sure you’re going to have an amazing time at your wedding shower!! That tupperware is so me! I’m so guilty of wanting to buy new tupperware when I found an old in the fridge and I’m not sure what’s in there!

  54. Dang it I missed the link up deadline! I hope you have a wonderful time at your shower this weekend and that you share some pics! Also that last video was so awkward to watch…not sure how that anchor kept a straight face the whole time! lol.

  55. Happy bridal shower to you! How exciting – I’m sure it will be beautiful and a great time for you! I’m proud that you haven’t looked at your registry … I tried to have self-restraint with that throughout my wedding, but Ryan insisted that he look every two hours, so he kind of ruined it! Ha! I love Imagine Dragons, so I will need to listen to that song as soon as I’m done writing this. Happy Saturday!

  56. Yay for bridal shower weekend!!!! I can’t wait to see pictures! I hope you get spoiled because you deserve it! :) I love that scarf! Looks so comfy! And that enchilada bake… yummmm!

  57. Have fun tonight! Your Friday posts are such a fun read!!

  58. Meghan says:

    Love your funnies! That exercise ball? Hahaha! Can’t wait to hear how your bridal shower went. That was the most surreal feeling for me!

  59. Kay R. says:
