Friday Favorites – One Week Countdown

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Happy Friday my loves!!   In exactly one week I will be getting ready to walk down the stairs to marry Mark!!!  I seriously cannot believe this final countdown is on.  Let’s get right into it!



Favorite Song
This song probably gets played 2-3 times during a run such a great tempo beat.  Calvin Harris ft Ellie Goulding Outside.


Favorite Recipe
Be careful.  This could be consumed in an entire sitting…..by yourself.  Stir Fried Singapore Noodles with Garlic Ginger Sauce full recipe here.

Favorite Workout

Top 10 moves for thinner thighs.  This is such a good roundup of exercises total burners!


Favorite Purchase

This long sleeved romper looks like a total $300 shopbop buy and it was $25.  The fit is amazing and I love the pattern and sleeves on it.  Can be worn with black tights and booties or with a skinny gold belt and sky high heels in the Warmer months.  Obsessed.

Favorite Funnies
Is this terrible of me?
Straight truth.  Mine is my pair from freshman year in college.
I miss the days when someone else was in charge of my hair
Walking behind all the snowbirds who have flocked down here and are clogging up my Costco and driving lanes
When Mark came home from softball last night early while I was watching Gilmore girls and drinking wine (I mean I finally got my apple tv turned back on!)
How I felt this entire last work week before I’m off for the Wedding
It’s Friday dance it out
What are your favorites from the week?  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!  I have my final fitting tomorrow!!!!  I am so exited for this final countdown!  xoxoxo
Follow me on!

    Yay only one week to go!!! Love it. Those stir fry singapore noodles look great. I havent seen gluten free singapore noodles but when I find that I will be on it. And I love the funnies. I do take pleasure in the fact that people MUCH younger look older than I am. Being short helps haha

    Oh my goodness! Only 1 week away? You must be flipping out.
    Snowbirds is too true. I don’t miss that time of year.

    Yayyy! As soon as I read the first line of your post that song “It’s the final countdown” popped into my head! I’m so excited for you girl! Next week is going to fly by. Loveee that song, it’s on constant repeat! And I totally miss the days when someone else was in charge of my hair. Good luck at your final fitting tomorrow!!

    I actually woke up thinking “Amanda’s getting married in a week!”….so that is either creepy to you or exciting lol
    Enjoy this week (and especially this weekend). It’ll be filled with so much excitement, family, and love :) Can’t wait to see everything!
    P.S. I laughed at your pins…the slide was probably my favorite (and no it’s not wrong to take comfort with younger people looking older! that’s always ok haha)
    Have a great weekend, sweet friend!! :)

    How exciting! Once the final week was here, I felt like I could relax and enjoy friends and family because everything was finally done. I hope you are able to do the same sweet girl, and where do you find these gifs? The kid going down the slide is hilarious!!!!!

    The jeans ecard is the big winner for today. On my blog I complained how I’m finally fitting in a pre-prednisone jeans, only to have my rheumatologist quadruple my dose yesterday. Womp womp.
    I can’t believe you have one week. Everything’s done, ENJOY!

  13. February 13, 2015 / 12:53 PM

    Happy one week out! It’ll feel like the longest and shortest week all at once ;) I’ve been listening to that Ellie Goulding song on repeat all week too – such a catchy song! Hope you have a great weekend! xoxo

  14. February 13, 2015 / 1:07 PM

    Happy Friday gurlie, enjoy this last week!

    I love that Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding song too, and my world was rocked yesterday when I found out that Ellie is who Ed Sheerhan is singing about in his song “Don’t”. Mind Blown.

  15. February 13, 2015 / 1:07 PM

    It feels like you said it was a month away a week ago! I’m always super glad when you post workout things. I’ve been looking for some gym inspiration lately!

  16. February 13, 2015 / 1:13 PM

    COUNTDOWN IS ON!!!!!!!! I’m so excited for you!!
    I have sat & laughed on repeat that kid sliding down the slide :)

  17. February 13, 2015 / 1:13 PM

  18. February 13, 2015 / 1:13 PM

    Those noodles look delish!! Is it horrible I can’t stop laughing every time I see that kid go down the slide?! Happy Friday!

  19. February 13, 2015 / 1:15 PM

    haha everyone has those jeans or pants that helps you figure out when you need to lose some weight. for me, it’s a pair of old guess hip hugger jeans circa 1993. i tossed all of my old clothes out but kept that one and it was the best feeling when i could finally get back into them!

  21. February 13, 2015 / 1:39 PM

    I can not even believe it is a week before the wedding!!! That romper is to die and the gifs are too funny. The Taylor Swift thing the story of my life lol. I am never alone . xoxo Have the best weekend! Even though next weekend will really be your best weekend! ;)

  22. February 13, 2015 / 1:52 PM

    EEEEK! Wedding week! So stinking excting, lady! This will be the best week, ever. It’s so full of love, excitment joy and happiness. I’m sending you alllll my <3 and sparkles, too!

    Love all your funnies, as usual. That Miranda pin is a favorite, she’s hilariously evil, right?

    <3 you lady!

  23. February 13, 2015 / 2:02 PM

    I have felt the same way all week long! Not that I am about to get married or anything though. :) I can’t believe how quickly this came up. I know you are excited!

  24. February 13, 2015 / 2:03 PM

    Oh my gosh one week!! That is so exciting! LOL I totally agree about wishing someone else could be in charge of my hair! Such a chore! And yes to the pair of jeans being a true test of weight loss! I think we all have that pair of jeans we put on to see if we fit into them yet! :D Have a wonderful weekend!

  25. February 13, 2015 / 2:06 PM

  35. February 13, 2015 / 2:53 PM

    I cannot believe the wedding is a week away, hooray! I dropped a little something in the mail for you and Mark yesterday, so hopefully it gets to you in the next few days. I’ve been all about thigh workouts lately, so that definitely is coming to the gym with me today, and that romper! Looking into that, too. Have a great weekend!

  38. February 13, 2015 / 3:16 PM

    One week!!! This gives me chills for you. So excited! That thigh workout looks just like certain barre moves that totally burn and work. Need to do some of those after all this Vday candy!

  39. February 13, 2015 / 3:27 PM

    Your funnies never disappoint Amanda! hahahaha Yayyyy for one more week!

  42. February 13, 2015 / 4:09 PM

  43. February 13, 2015 / 4:20 PM

  46. February 13, 2015 / 5:34 PM

    I love my husband (duh) but the other night he came home like 2 hours early from some work thing and I had just finished dinner (pigging out on junk) and hadn’t even turned on netflix yet, i was so upset.
    Meanwhile – ONE WEEK!! Holy moly. You better instagram the shit out of everything because I want to see everything!

  47. February 13, 2015 / 5:56 PM

    ah! ONE WEEK! so exciting! that very workout was what caused me to not be able to move my legs all last weekend. guess it works?! Love that romper!!

  48. February 13, 2015 / 6:29 PM

  49. February 13, 2015 / 6:44 PM

    Holy crap – that recipe. I pinned it before even reading what it was!! It looks amazing! And one week already?! Hope things are going well!!

  50. February 13, 2015 / 7:05 PM

    I can’t even believe that you’re blogging with a week to go! Shouldn’t you be freaking out?!? Nah, it’s going to be awesome! So excited for you!

    So I love some new music and clicked on the song to enjoy while reading . . . happily along . . . see that food dish and my mouth starts to water and then bam, I see exercise and whomp, whomp! Gah, what does that say about me? I already exercised today so let’s blame it on that! And I absolutely LOVE Friday funnies . . . keep them coming! Happy weekending to you!

  53. February 13, 2015 / 9:16 PM

  58. February 15, 2015 / 10:11 AM

    Ah one week that’s crazy! You must be sooo excited! And those noodles look delish. I could totally see myself eating all of them in one sitting. The e-card about the old jeans is 100% true, I always feel awesome when I’m able to slip into a pair that used to be too tight!

    Mili

  59. February 15, 2015 / 5:51 PM

    As always, your e-cards have me nodding and laughing out loud! And thank you for the inner thigh work out! Definitely necessary! YAYAYAY for final countdown! xo
