Friday Favorites – Work it Out

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

This week definitely didn’t feel complete considering the fact I had some vacation days thrown in there.  There really isn’t enough hours in the day is there?  I usually try to get a ton of work done on the weekends but with being gone like I was……definitely felt like I was behind this whole week.  I plan on catching up and maybe even getting a little sunshine on my skin.  Who knows maybe it will actually happen…..some down time!  What a concept.  Let’s get right into these favorites!


Favorite Song
You know when you hear a song and you pray it’s not a teenybopper singing it and then to your dismay it’s One Direction or in this case Ariana Grande.  I just love the beat……there I said it.  My internal thoughts while watching “I wish I could get those first 45 seconds of my life back.  How is that sweatshirt really staying perfectly off her shoulder like that the whole time…oh wait she put it back…..never mind off again.  Seriously is this a build up to a cosmic dance scene? Where is the dance scene?  Worst acting ever.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen her with her hair down and not in some headache provoking high ponytail“……Think of those while watching……you’re welcome.



Favorite Recipe
Healthy and easy recipe for the win!  I added some Trader Joe’s brown rice and perfect meal.  Teriyaki Halibut in Parchment full recipe here.  Would work really with any fish.


Favorite Workout

This is a fabulous lower body workout.  Original pin here.  I like how she is smiling during those squats…….oh those burn!


Favorite Purchase
These lace barre leggings from this post.  I am beyond obsessed with them.  Snag them because they are basically sold out everywhere but found them here in a few sizes left!


Favorite Post
Anthropologie DIY hack that I could actually do……sign me up!  Check it here.  I have been loving Jill’s posts.  She has such a great voice and I love reading about her journey as a mother.  Plus check out how gorgeous homegirl is. That hair.  Tell me your secret please!


Favorite Funnies
It’s just so much easier this way right?
Straight truth
Pretty much how I’ve felt this whole week between charting patients, grading papers, answering blog emails and catching up on life.
When the TSA pre check line was closed in New York and I had to take my shoes off with hundreds of other lovely people
Car dancing and a certain someone happens to get in your way.  I can’t help that I have long arms….
Finally.  When Mark catches me ransacking the pantry looking for any trace of chocolate
I hope you have a fabulous weekend!  Tell me your favorites from the week and stop by and give some love before jetting off ;-)  xoxoxoxo

    That recipe looks amazing! Will have to try it out! Also I will be adding that workout to my fitness board! Looks like a good one!

  2. I laughed when I read you coveting Jill’s hair because I think the same thing about your hair. ha! I’m pretty sure you deserve some commission for selling those leggings because anyone that looks at how you styled this is going to want them!

  3. P!nky says:

    Love me some plank and butt workouts. So good and so easy to do at home.

    Ugh, I hate when Pre-check is closed, it’s the best thing in the world when traveling!

    Happy Friday!

  4. Ugh I actually love that Ariana Grande song. It has such a good beat! I never watched the video until now though… not so sures about that. Love that Anthro hack Jill did! SO easy! And I refuse to parallel park if there are witness. I will walk farther to avoid that scenario! Haha that cat gif gets me cracking up every time! Happy Friday love!

    Sequins & Sea Breezes

  5. I haven’t listened to that song yet. I’ve been jammin out to the Furious 7 album, it’s been on repeat for much longer than I’d like to admit haha. Those gifs have me cracking up over here haha.

    I’ve felt much like you and that bunny this week too after a week off and getting back into real life. I’ve also been known to do a little car dancing myself–if someone gets in the way, they weren’t paying attention enough ;)
    Hope you have a good weekend and get in some sneaky chocolate time! ;)

  7. I can’t get enough of Jill’s DIYs and home stuff – it’s just the best!! I honestly feel like I dont get anything accomplished anymore and time literally runs away from me!! I feel the same way about songs…but I chalk it up to them having really great people in the industry they work with which is why i like the music lol! xo, Biana – BlovedBoston

  8. Tori G says:

    Those lace leggings are amazing! and that last gif is too cute!

  9. Ugggh I have the strongest dislike for Ariana Grande…but I do like that song. You’re right – the beat is sick!! Happy Friday!

  10. That bunny is how i’ve felt all week trying to catch up. The last two crack me up!

  11. Still loving those amazing leggings you posted the other day, and that butt workout is a must do now that it’s bathing suit season! And yep… that cat gif is totally me every night too. Last night I made myself a little cup of nonfat vanilla greek yogurt (the Uncle Jesse kind of course!), and sprinkled some mini chocolate chips on top and it cured my craving :)

    Happy Friday <3

  12. Rebecca Jo says:

    You look like a magazine ad in those lace leggings!!

  13. i need those leggings! and those last few gifs. they have me cracking up girl! i hope you get some sunshine in for the both of us! i’m gonna be so darn busy but it’s all good things. happy weekend chica!

  14. Julia says:

    Ooo, love those leggings, so pretty! I love the beat of that song too, but definitely a weird music video! It really did need a dance scene or something! Haahaha the cat gif! :)

  15. Girl you are rocking those leggings!! I’ll have to try that workout, looks like a good one! Happy weekend!

  16. Mree says:

    Love your workout gear. Could you be anymore perfect?? I too felt like I was playing catch up all week. Hopefully, you can have a nice relaxing weekend.

  17. Traci Hart says:

    Great pic of you in a plank! Love that outfit! I hope you have a great weekend complete with some downtime :)
    P.S. Can you be my personal trainer?!

  18. You always find the best recipes!! Can’t wait to give this one a try – it’s almost grilling season here too, yay! Happy Friday!

  19. Yes to that full body workout! I’m adding that to my arsenal of circuits to try. Um, that meme about parallel parking is the god honest truth. I once had a patio full of businessmen applaud me after I managed to parallel park my car … After 15 minutes. Have a great weekend!

  20. I love parchment packet cooking! Turns out, don’t try and substitute wax paper if you are out of parchment, totally not the same. Also, I just noticed the cute black cloth going through your pony, love it!

  21. Those animal gifs!! LOL!!! And I don’t smile when I do squats, so I don’t know why that girl is. Like hello it’s painful!! Haha. I hope that you have a fabulous weekend and that you get to relax a bit!! :-)

  22. Teh Megan says:

    Aww Peggy and Joan, 2 of my favorites! We’ve had extra evening activites every day this week and I’m just so beat! I’m ready for this lazy weekend since the last 2 weekends are gonna be busy.

  23. Christina says:

    i’ve got an idea. let’s quit our jobs and be djs together. hahah

  24. As teenybopper as she may be, most of her music is pretty great. I agree that video was a bit strange. Not what I’d expect from that song. But whateves. The half pony tail is due to the fact that she has no hair. Almost all of it is a weave from her former Nickelodeon days when they forced her to dye it fire engine red every other week. So until she has some of her own to play with, half pony it will be. I’m assuming this particular style covers lots of bald spots. (; I can’t even imagine. I’m so vane about my hair.

  25. Oooh that workout – I may give it a go this weekend – Kick my self in the ass – quite literally.

    Those workout leggings – Shut up – super cute and I love how you transitioned with them!

    Man – TSA – Any part of the pre flight mandatory things – I hate it. SO MUCH.

    :) Happy Friday!

  26. Dying over your gif’s as usual! I love that song but can’t stand AG. She’s like a tiny fair Mariah and it confuses me! Hope you have a great weekend!!

  27. Courtney B says:

    I’m the crazy that’s smiling during those torturous squats in piyo BECAUSE I would definitely curl up in a ball on the floor and cry my pathetic eyes out if not, ha ha! The burrrrrrrrrn!
    Love those lace leggings! Happy weekend!

  28. Kay R. says:

    That wrap looks so yummy! Saving that workout!! And that bunny at the computer has been me all week trying to get to emails etc.

  29. That video is just dumb. I do love the song though and pretty much ll of her songs sadly lol. I am totally making those letters. I used that Madmen gif today too… love Joan:) Have a great weekend!

  30. That looks like an amazing butt workout!
    I’m with you about not enough hours in the day. UGH! Need more time!

  31. ooh a good old butt workout! haha! And i love some teeny bopper songs- no shame!

  32. I have GOT to have those leggings. like yesterday.

  33. Those funnies are great. The cat and I are soulmates this week for sure. Those leggings are fantastic! Hope you have a great weekend!

  34. Jen says:

    Love the funnies – as per usual. I’m driving Steve’s HUGE explorer now and trying to parallel park in Chicago is laughable. Obsessed with those leggings too.

    xo, Jen
