Friday Favorites – Two Week Countdown

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Happy Friday my loves.  I apologize for my absence yesterday but I have a very valid reason why.  See I have really kicked my working out into full gear since I entered into the wedding month.  I woke up to take the early 6am class which meant I had to go to bed at a normal hour.  The entire time during the class I kept on thinking to myself “so this is what it feels like to be on the receiving end of 6am burning?”  I can’t believe in two weeks from now I will be getting ready and on my way to say I Do.  So excited!  Let’s get right into these favorites!

Favorite Song

Obsessed with this song.  Totally chill with such a laid back vibe to it.  Guaranteed to put you in a good mood after hearing.  Damien Jurado “Ohio” Filous Remix.

Favorite Recipe

I told some of you via email banter but in addition to my lovely curling iron burned finger I sliced my thumb open trying to take the foil lid off the leftover lasagna tray the other night.  It was like someone was trying to tell me something.  I think it was that I don’t need carbs after 7pm.  Therefore the next night this recipe was found.  Slow Cooker Asian Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps full recipe here.

Favorite Workout

For those long lean muscles.  Workouts you can do at home

Favorite Purchase

With my lack of storage (I know common theme) I needed a place for all my necklaces to hang.  Picked this up on Amazon and it’s perfection.  The top layer is the perfect height for all my long necklaces, middle one for all the statement ones and the bottom one for spill over/bracelets etc.  It doesn’t take up a lot of room and fits all my necklaces.  It is also very sturdy with all the heavy jewelry on it.  Highly recommend especially for the price!

Favorite Funnies

Pretty much me this entire week
100% guilty of this right now with my wedding to do list.  I just need to have something to cross off.
Pretty sure this is how Mark felt about his fridge after I moved in
This is some straight truth.  Don’t ever let anyone treat you like that.
Pretty much when people ask me how I am feeling about the wedding being here so soon
When you are that person who brings in bagels and donuts in the morning to work
When Mark gives me a side eye about a particularly fashion forward look
I swear I tried to get up for 6am barre this morning but…..
Finally.  When someone asks if Mark and I have a choreographed first dance planned…..what like this?
I hope everyone had a fabulous week and weekend!  I have seen my dress this week, had my final meeting with my coordinator and this weekend it’s all about the seating charts.  Wish me luck!  Tell me all your favorites from this week and make sure to stop by some of the great peeps who have linked up!  xoxoxo

    So exciting!! Also those funnies….that coffee one speaks to me on a personal level!

  3. February 6, 2015 / 10:22 AM

    Good luck with the seating chart this weekend! That was one of the most difficult tasks for me but everything turned out perfectly so just keep the end result in mind. Oh and… pink starburst!! Does anyone even like the yellow ones? Happy weekend, lady!

  4. February 6, 2015 / 10:53 AM

    The next two weeks are going to fly by! I’m getting so excited for you!! The seating chart is definitely the biggest pain in the butt but once you’re done with that it’s all downhill! Definitely going to have to try those Asian chicken lettuce wraps. Yum! And that necklace holder is perfect… I think I need it. Haha love the pink starburst someecard and the the seal one. Yup, don’t bring the bagels or donuts in because I am definitely all over that! Happy Friday love!

    TWO WEEKS, woohoo! These next 14 days are going to fly by, but it’s going to be so exciting! I agree with Pamela, seating is a pain, but it’s also fun because wow, you are soooo close!

    Love your jewelry hold, super pretty and functional, double win!

    I have Left Shark in m post today too, great minds I tell you!!!

    Happy Friday, bride to be!!! <3 to you!

  6. February 6, 2015 / 11:22 AM

    It can’t really be only two weeks until your big day…holy cow! Lol to the yellow starburst thing! Who eats those though?!

  7. February 6, 2015 / 11:49 AM

    hahahaha your funnies always are the best ones I’ve seen for the week! The donut and the shark one are probably my favorites but I love them all really :) Two weeks to go! It’ll seriously be here before you even know it!! Soak it all in!
    I have a good copycat PFchangs Lettuce wrap recipe on my blog that I tried out and it’s yummy! Never a bad choice :)
    Hope you have a good weekend girl!

  8. February 6, 2015 / 11:53 AM

    I am so happy they incorporated so many of the best Saved By the Bell moments into their “reunion!!” I can’t even tell you how excited I am for your wedding and to see all your planning come to life!!! That jewelry organizer is so good…I need it!! Happy Friday love! xo, Biana – BlovedBoston

  10. February 6, 2015 / 12:23 PM

    That SBTB on Fallon was AWESOME!! Veggies in the beer crisper, hilarious. So exciting two weeks!!! I love the fashion forward focus groups, man you’re spot on with those funnies!

  11. February 6, 2015 / 12:51 PM

    I need to make those lettuce wraps… looks amazing! I think the choreographed first dance only really works for certain types of couples lol…. cause the sharks would be me:)

  12. February 6, 2015 / 12:52 PM

    Those lettuce wraps sound so good! You always crack me up with your ecard and gifs! Happy two weeks out! It’s SO close, ahhh!! :)

  13. February 6, 2015 / 12:55 PM

  14. February 6, 2015 / 1:09 PM

  15. February 6, 2015 / 1:21 PM

    I can’t believe how close the wedding is!!!!!!! We’re all counting down with you!
    Dancing Sharks!!!
    I never tire of laughing at people that trip or fall :)

  16. February 6, 2015 / 1:21 PM

  17. February 6, 2015 / 1:28 PM

  18. February 6, 2015 / 1:33 PM

    Bahahah those sharks!! The first comment about the halftime show was from my friend’s Dad made the comment, “Look at HER beach balls!” Then I piped in with, “Those sharks aren’t even in sync!” I’m glad the internet understands me.. and you do too! :)

  19. February 6, 2015 / 1:43 PM

    lol i love how we have the same gifs. and those lettuce wraps look great! i think i need to burn my mouth like you’ve burned your finger/hand so i stop eating carbs like ever. nbd :) can’t believe it’s two weeks away!! eek!!

  20. February 6, 2015 / 1:53 PM

    Ah two week mark!! That is so exciting! I got up last week and was at the gym at 5:30 and absolutely loved it because the gym was so empty but I did not like waking up before the sun was even out! I am going to try and work out at least one morning a week but I am not sure how that will go…or if it will even happen!

  21. February 6, 2015 / 2:03 PM

    So wait… that does mean that y’all are doing a choreographed version of that Katy Perry shark dance at your wedding, right?! ;)

  22. February 6, 2015 / 2:05 PM

    TWO WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    love that necklace thingy… want it… where the heck would i put it that the cats wouldnt attack it…

  23. February 6, 2015 / 2:06 PM

    TWO. WEEKS!!! Ah! I am soooooo excited for you!
    Yum, adding those lettuce wraps to my meal plan right now!
    I am DYING to find a gym here (and hopefully some barre classes, YAY! Still dying to try it!) but until I can finish unpacking (and Mia gets over being sick) I’ll have to stick to running and at home workouts. Definitely going to try these!

  24. February 6, 2015 / 2:11 PM

    Two weeks, girlie! Hooray! I am dying at the shark .gif … Wouldn’t that be epic though if you did show up in that for your first dance?! I’m looking into that jewelry stand, too. It looks like something that I just need. :) Have a great weekend, lady!

  25. February 6, 2015 / 2:11 PM

    I cannot even believe your wedding is in two freaking weeks! HOW DID THAT HAPPEN!?!?!?!

  26. February 6, 2015 / 2:22 PM

    That is an excellent jewelry stand! I know when I was in the midst of last minute wedding planning I always added items to my list just to cross them off. It helped me mentally.

  27. February 6, 2015 / 2:25 PM

    Two weeks?! Eeeekkss!!! Am I a weirdo for asking this, who has a choreographed first dance?! Those sharks though, omg so funny. I feel like a mean person for laughing at the kid jumping into the pool, but that is funny too. I love that jewelry stand, my hanging jewelry organizer broke so I need a new one. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful weekend lady!! :-)

  28. February 6, 2015 / 2:27 PM

    Ohhhh those asian chicken lettuce wraps look delicious!!! And you need to be careful between now and the wedding! You dont want to be wrapped up in a body cast LOL.

    Love that jewelry stand. I have this weird space in our bathroom that I want to get a table for and put something like that and a nail polish holder on it :)

  29. February 6, 2015 / 2:45 PM

    Ooh those Asian chicken wraps look amazing! & I loved so hard at the sharks/choreographed dance thing. I recently got a jewelry stand too, and it’s a gamechanger for organization. :)

  30. February 6, 2015 / 2:53 PM

    Love chicken lettuce wraps, those look so good. I might have to pick up that jewelry stand, I could just stop buying more jewelry but since that’s not going to happen I need more storage! Speaking of I’m so excited, did you see the Jimmy Fallon skit – so great! Enjoy your weekend, good luck with the seating charts!

  31. February 6, 2015 / 3:09 PM

    2 weeks say whaaat? SO exciting girl!

    Lettuce wraps are my go-to fav and your funnies (as usual) are on point! Have a fabulous weekend! xo

  32. February 6, 2015 / 3:15 PM

    “The difference between coffee and your opinion is I asked for coffee” HAHAHAHAHA! I want that on a shirt.

    My fellow yoga teachers and I always joke that we make the 6am class the hardest, because those people are hardcore: you don’t work them and they’re MAD they got out of bed for your lame class. So if you ever want a real burn, you head on out to the 6am!

  33. February 6, 2015 / 3:17 PM

    You crack me up!! I think my husband still thinks we have a beer crisper. MEN! Two weeks!! That is SO exciting!! Hope you have a great weekend love! xoxo

  34. February 6, 2015 / 3:20 PM

    that reunion was so epic!! i can’t believe you are 2 weeks away!!

  35. February 6, 2015 / 3:23 PM

    Beer Crisper. HA! Totally guilty.

    Those lettuce wraps looks amazing.


  36. February 6, 2015 / 3:37 PM

    I sliced my finger on one of those lids before as well! It hurt so bad and it took like a week to heal to the point where I could use it…there is still a mark and some slight scabbing in the area though. The dancing shark from half-time is now my life goal! Kind of kidding lol.

  37. February 6, 2015 / 3:41 PM

    That stinkin shark! I love him haha. I have definitely added things to my list before just so that I could cross them off.

  38. February 6, 2015 / 3:56 PM

    HAha are you left shark or is Mark?! :) ps got the Target online-only tee’s from last week’s post and I AM IN LOVE!!! Living in them!

  39. February 6, 2015 / 4:02 PM

    Happy wedding countdown…how exciting!!!

    This recipe looks amazing…i’ve made one similar but NOT in the slow cooker. I’m a big fan of the slow cooker these days. And I’m stealing that coffee/opinion one…love it!

  40. February 6, 2015 / 4:05 PM

    hahahahah! there were some hilarious tweets about that shark during the superbowl that made me laugh so hard LOLOLOLOLOL

  41. February 6, 2015 / 4:53 PM

    So excited for you!! Only 2 more weeks! I can’t wait to see your wedding photos I’m sure you are going to be a beautiful bride!!

  42. February 6, 2015 / 5:00 PM

    So exciting!!! You already have a wonderful body… imagine after working out even more :-)
    Enjoy this exciting time!!

  43. February 6, 2015 / 6:42 PM

    Eeek TWO WEEKS! I remember those last few days – so much to do and so much to think about, totally understandable if you’re MIA from blogging! Happy Friday lady!

  44. February 6, 2015 / 6:54 PM

    just thinking about 6 am makes me want to cry…and working out? hahha, you go girl!

  45. February 6, 2015 / 7:42 PM

    Your a pink starburst – ha! Currently dying! So funny and so true! I need that three-tier jewelry holder in my life. I am notorious for taking my jewelry off for the day and leaving it on the dresser. How exciting that you are TWO weeks away from marrying the man of your dreams!! Have a great weekend, Amanda!

  46. February 6, 2015 / 8:02 PM

    Two weeks, oh my goodness!! You must be so excited! Hahaha love your funnies, especially the dancing sharks because those were clearly the best part of the Super Bowl. ;) Those wraps look delicious! Have an amazing weekend! :)

  47. February 6, 2015 / 8:28 PM

    God, your memes are always priceless. You better have a damn good videographer for those upcoming choreographed moves haha. The zookeeper is me… and the fat seal is our fattest dog; go figure. Happy weekend!

  48. February 6, 2015 / 8:55 PM

    Love the jewelry organizer and those lettuce wraps look awesome!! Only two weeks to go…how exciting!!

  49. February 6, 2015 / 9:34 PM

    Ahhh 2 weeks! So exciting :-D

    It’s impossible to not love Jimmy Fallon.. he brings us such amazingness. That SBTB reunion was genius!

    Happy Friday <3

  50. February 7, 2015 / 6:24 PM

    Hahahah the sharks!! I can’t! Definitely checking out that jewelry holder and can’t believe your big day is almost here.. so excited for you!! xo

  51. February 8, 2015 / 2:51 PM

    Yes yes yes on the to do list!!!! LOL the Sharks!!!!!

  52. February 8, 2015 / 8:08 PM

    Can’t believe your in the two week countdown! So exciting! I’m so guilty of doing that with a to-do list. Just glad I’m not alone! And that poor shark. They were so lost.

  53. February 14, 2015 / 3:52 PM

    I love that jewelry storage! I have one of those tall jewelry “boxes” that has a bunch of drawers and doors and whatnot… I like it overall but this would be nice for the pieces I wear often!
