Friday Favorites – How Is It Mid November Already?

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Happy Friday lovelies!  I am so looking forward to this weekend!  I am going to do some major catching up.  This week was another doozie and it’s time to catch up on some workouts, sleep and barre.  Let’s get right into the favorites!  Make sure to stop by the all the amazing peeps who linkup!  I have found some amazing new blogs to follow.  Let’s get right into it!


Favorite Song

Not going to lie…..this one is pretty catchy.  She looks gorgeous in this video.  Totally cracked up when I watched it thinking of that SNL parody “wait isn’t she alway’s wearing 1950’s bathing suits“…..yup halfway through pretty much.  Taylor Swift – Blank Space

Favorite Recipe

It has finally gotten cold enough for soup weather here!  Making this one with my new Ninja crockpot.  Creamy Parmesan Tomato and Spinach Tortellini Soup full recipe here.  I used greek yogurt in it so good!  Make sure to pin from the original.

Favorite Workout

It’s skinny jeans and boots time isn’t it?

Favorite Moment

Getting to see Pamela this week for a blate.  We had way too much fun let me tell you.  Who wants to come and visit us in Florida???

Favorite Purchase

Now that’s it’s finally “cold” out (I realize it’s all relative) I have been wearing these on repeat.  They are amazing and $30 cheaper on Gilt.  Dolce Vita still has them full price on the website.

Favorite Funnies

I mean when you have a parking garage far from your condo……you have human strength when it comes to carrying multiple bags and water bottles.

Don’t lie you have some pieces like this
Hahahahaha that’s why I’ll stick to instagram
Every single time….
When I’m at one of those new farm to table restaurants and I’m hearing the entire background story of the meal while starving…..

Instant verification for when I know I’m right

The relief of getting out of one of the bodycon dresses that probably shouldn’t have been tried on in the first place

All bloggers responses when questioned about why you decided to pair a plaid shirt with a fur vest and topped it off with an “Indiana Jones” type of hat…..

I hope y’all have a fabulous weekend!  What are you up to this weekend??  xoxoxo
Follow me on!
Your turn!  Tell me your favorites from the week!

    Soup sounds so good right now!!! And the bread, dipped in the soup…. drooling.

  4. November 14, 2014 / 11:27 AM

    Okay not gonna lie TSwift is killing it lately and I’m not usually a fan. Those boots are gorgeous. Google it wins! That pug is too cute, and agree that is the look trying to get out of spanx.

  5. November 14, 2014 / 11:50 AM

    I love that you and Pamela got to see each other and also a little jealous :) So I saw the T-Swift video yesterday and it reminded me of the lady gaga one where she kept the guy in the house…don’t remember the name for the life of me!! OMG getting stuck in a dress at the store is my worst nightmare…and fear of someone knowing it was me that slightly broke the zipper LOL!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend love!! xo

  6. November 14, 2014 / 12:05 PM

    Me me! I want to come visit you girls :) I bet you did have a blast! Love Blank Space and the video is so fun, she looks so pretty! Have a good weekend, hope you get lots of good sleep!

  7. November 14, 2014 / 12:23 PM

    So awesome that you and Pam get to have blates! Your both gorgeous! :) Did you two know each other before meeting in the blogging world?! Just curious :) I have definitely been loving Taylor Swift’s new jams. And your right, she’s gorgeous in that video! Love those boots! All my boots are flat… I think I need some with heels! :) Have a great weekend!

  8. November 14, 2014 / 12:37 PM

    Yay for blates!!! The dog getting out of the blanket!! ROFL. Loving the new Swift cd and I’m so sad she’ll only be here for Halloween next year. Adding that soup to my Pinterest, it sounds delicious!! Have a fabulous weekend!

  9. November 14, 2014 / 12:38 PM

  10. November 14, 2014 / 12:46 PM

    Yayyyy for your blate! One of these days I’ll have to join you ladies ;-)

    And it’s already too chilly for me here, I whipped out the boots this week too. I see that it’s going to be even colder next week… eeek!

    Happy Friday :)

  11. November 14, 2014 / 1:00 PM

    I can’t believe I like another taylor swift song… the video is awesome!!!.. what is happening to me?!?!?

  12. November 14, 2014 / 1:07 PM

    OMG that Facebook funny is so true! Haha! That crockpot soup looks delish – for some reason I never think to use my crockpot for soups but I definitely need to start! Have a great weekend! xoxo

  13. November 14, 2014 / 1:08 PM

    Yayyyyy! So glad we got to meet up this week! I had a blast! :) Especially on my first Uber experience LOL! Loving T-Swift’s new video and that song…. and the cd. And you know I love those boots. Gorgeous! Happy Friday lovely!

    The ninja is awesome! I just haven’t figured out how to make a lot of stuff in it since I’m scared to mess with all of the settings (mainly the baking one…and going from one to the other). I need to just suck it up and do it one of these days, and have a back-up meal on hand. I made the shrimp scampi in the recipe book and it was really good!
    Loving T Swift’s new song, too!
    Hope you have a great weekend Amanda!

  15. November 14, 2014 / 1:17 PM

    I want to come hang in FL with y’all! So jealous! I’m with you on getting caught up this weekend… so much to do, so little time.

  16. November 14, 2014 / 1:27 PM

    That soup recipe needs to be in my kitchen, like now! It looks so yummy. Amen to getting all the groceries in the door in one trip – I swear that’s my arm workout most days! I hope you have a great and relaxing weekend, love! xo

  17. November 14, 2014 / 1:28 PM

    Love the Joey gif! Any Friends gif is perfect in my opinion :) And my crockpot is arriving next week, that soup may need to be one of the first recipes I make in it!

  18. November 14, 2014 / 1:32 PM

    Tswift’s song and music video is pretty awesome! She is so creative and soooooo talented!

    Those boots are amazing! Happy Friday!

  19. November 14, 2014 / 1:35 PM

    This post totally made my day and made me laugh out loud! Thank you for getting my Friday off to a good start. T.G. to the I.F.!

    Google comes in SO handy for people like me with an obsessive need to be right. Because even if I’m not actually right, there is someone out there who will say I am :)

  21. November 14, 2014 / 1:48 PM

    Oh, no shame in jamming’ to the T. Swift. I used to feel shame, but now every day when I’m teaching a jazz class and I blare Shake It Off, I blare it with confidence ;)

  22. November 14, 2014 / 1:56 PM

    I so love that song! I picked the same one this week. I thought the video was great as well. Hope you have a great weekend catching up on things.

  23. November 14, 2014 / 2:06 PM

    Every single one of those funnies are hilarious & on point. Every. Single. One. That soup looks so good…even better you can make it in the crockpot!

  24. November 14, 2014 / 2:09 PM

    Ooo that’s my favorite song too! I almost posted it! What a fun blate with Pamela. I’m in Orlando so let me know if you’re ever around this area ;-)

  25. November 14, 2014 / 2:42 PM

    Hahaha, yes to the TSwift song! I just watched a SNL skit, about taking a pill as an adult to stop liking her, it’s soooo funny!

  26. November 14, 2014 / 2:43 PM

    umm i totally want to come visit. and yeah i’ll probably be screaming that in january. SUNSHINE WHERE ARE YOU!

  27. November 14, 2014 / 2:47 PM

    Ok not a huge T swift fan but loving this song and THAT video rocks! So good- also ummm those boots are pefection Amanda! (omg I want) ps- did you know a little fact that I would possibly leave my family for Marky Mark? Gah he’s my fav! hahaha Happy weekend girl! xoxo

  28. November 14, 2014 / 2:50 PM

    I love that TSwift song, and I laughed so hard about the gif related to the farm to market restaurants. I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes I’m like just feed me please! Haha. Have a wonderful weekend!

  29. November 14, 2014 / 2:54 PM

    I know it’s supposed to be funny, but the facebook ecard is TRUE. So glad I’m not the only one giving up on that site! Also, love love love those boots! They’re going on the Christmas list fo sho.

  30. November 14, 2014 / 2:56 PM

    Everything should be made to go in the wash, that’s all I’m sayin ;) It’s funny, we all do it, look at the slow drives as we pass expecting something crazy! Hope you have a good catch up weekend!

  31. November 14, 2014 / 2:57 PM

    Love the red lips you and Pamela are sporting! Those boots are perfection. I’m kind of afraid to buy shoes while pregnant because I’ve heard so many people say they went up a size after they had baby. How sad would that be? And that ecard about facebook – too true!! Have a fab weekend girl!

  32. November 14, 2014 / 3:01 PM

    those boots! love! haha I was JUST at a restaurant where the server wouldn’t stop talking about the food- please let us eat! pleeease!

  33. November 14, 2014 / 3:14 PM

    That tortellini looks bomb! Those boots! Marky Mark. I know people don’t call him that anymore but I just love him and his peacock scene is hilarious.

  34. November 14, 2014 / 3:19 PM

    I wrote about that TSwift song last week – SUPER CATCHY – LOVE IT! I rock out everytime I hear it!

    And that soup – Mmmmmmmmmmmmm GIRL that SOUP!!!!!

    I’m a peacock! giggles – LOVE IT!

    And what is up with Bodycon dresses? I mean – if you can’t get out of one – how do they expect me, and all my curvy hip to try one on? I resist the urge to get stuck in one. :)

    Pamela’s sweater is gorgeous – where’d she get it?!?!?!?!?!

  35. November 14, 2014 / 3:32 PM

    OMG the body con puppy.. that is hilarious!! And those boots are gorgeous as well. Glad you guys had fun on your blate… have a fab weekend girl! xoxo

  36. November 14, 2014 / 4:01 PM

    that recipe sounds perfect for how chilly it is right now!!

  37. November 14, 2014 / 4:28 PM

    Making that soup ASAP it sounds so unbelievably delicious!! How disappointing is it when you buy something before checking the tag only to realize it’s “dry clean only” – literally the kiss of death for an item of clothing.

  38. November 14, 2014 / 4:41 PM

    lol it’s been a long time since i tried on a bodycon dress for that reason! haha. that workout looks fabulous for the booty and legs, and yes i want to come visit you girls in florida please! obsessed with that video from Taylor. she looks ahhmazing.

  39. November 14, 2014 / 4:59 PM

    I can’t stop replaying T Swift… it’s so catchy! Are those the boots you posted about before? How do they fit? Also, great picture!

  40. November 14, 2014 / 5:08 PM

    OMG you always find the best “funnies” … the farm to fork thing is one of my biggest pet peeves too!!!! I was at a restaurant in the midwest and they were going on and on about how “fresh” their mussels were – flown in from Canada …!??!? ; )

  41. November 14, 2014 / 5:10 PM

    i’m obsessed with that video! i almost put it up and knew everyone else would :) her outfits and all of it is perfection. and you know i need a blate with you and pamela soon! xoxo

    I am so obsessed with the Taylor Swift CD! I almost didn’t buy it but then my curiosity got the best of me… I am so glad I did. Literally obsessed with every song!

  43. November 14, 2014 / 6:58 PM

    Hahahaha, every one of those funnies made me laugh! Especially the bodycon dress one, been there!

    That soup looks so good, I want to make it right now!

  44. November 14, 2014 / 7:02 PM

    Love your new boots!! SO cute!! That pug is hilarious too haha. And oh gosh those FB posts are kind of annoying. And cold in FL?! Sigh. I would much rather be back on the beach in Miami than here. The red lip looks beautiful on you too. Have a wonderful weekend lady!!

  45. November 14, 2014 / 8:59 PM

    You had me at Ninja Crockpot! All of those gifs… dying!! You always make me giggle on Friday! Happy weekend girl!!

  46. November 14, 2014 / 9:05 PM

    Um, yeah I want to visit ;)! You two are rocking the bold lipstick in that photo too…love it! Quote of the weekend..”I’m a peacock you gotta let me fly!” HAHA! Have a great weekend Amanda :).

  47. November 14, 2014 / 10:25 PM

    That song is everywhere today! Love it! I also like Wildest Dream. I may have to get the damn CD even though I am angry about the Spotify thing. That soup looks amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Drool!

    I totally have clothes that never get washed. No shame. LOL at the dog getting out of the blanket! We have all been there!

    Totally jealous of your blate! I want one with you! Have a great weekend!

  48. November 15, 2014 / 2:09 PM

    love that soup!! perfect for the cold weekend here. and YES to the fb complainers who are suddenly thankful!

  49. November 16, 2014 / 5:25 PM

    Lol Amanda, I love this post! That Joey Tribiani gif is priceless (my favorite by him is “JOEY DOESN’T SHARE FOOD!” because I mean, really.. isn’t that how we all feel?). You look so beautiful on your blate – if I’m ever in Florida, we are blate-ing it up, girl.
    That soup looks like it is EVERYTHING. I’m absolutely going to make it this week! I also felt like that dog when trying to put on a pair of skinny jeans this weekend. Sighhh.

  50. November 17, 2014 / 6:43 PM

    Oh my goodness, I really don’t like Taylor Swift but her new CD is pretty awesome. I think she’s stole my heart again like she did when I was in high school. About carrying all grocery’s in at once, CHECK! I do that all the time. I hate having to go back to my car to get the rest of my bags. Nope, I HAVE to carry everything in at once. And google is the answer for everything :)

  51. November 18, 2014 / 2:40 AM

    Sigh T-swifty … the girl is growing on me and Im so ashamed to say I love that song … and most of her bloody new album. Damn her.
