Friday Favorites – The Greece Edition

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

Hello all my loves! How much do I love scheduling posts?!?! I am currently sitting in the Delta sky club at JFK, sipping on an adult bev, writing this post and admiring all my hard work of getting myself and Mark both in carry on bags for our entire trip. Do you believe me?? It happened. You know when I get back I’ll tell you all the details on how I did it. We are enjoying all the honeymoon perks of upgraded seats, lounge access and drink tickets. People just love people in love don’t they? I have lined up fabulous guest posts every day that we are gone so make sure to stop by and give all the girls some major love for me. Speaking of love, shout out to my brother and his wife who are house sitting for us. Y’all are the best, I hope you get a few rounds of golf in Bryan! Let’s get right into these favorites!

Greece Edition


Favorite Song

Y’all know my love for songs that make you want to move.  This one has been on repeat lately.  Untouchable Tritonal & Cash Cash.


Favorite Recipe

New Orleans BBQ shrimp

True story.  Mark makes this about once a month.  It is so good but warning there is a healthy serving of butter.  You can’t cut it out though because it really balances the heat.  It is so worth it!  I serve mine over brown rice… makes me feel a tiny bit better!  New Orleans BBQ Shrimp recipe found here.


Favorite Workout

All about those arms!  I mean I outlined it quite extensively in this post.  It’s tank top and bathing suit season isn’t it!  Original pin here.

Favorite Moment of the Week

When Bloglovin got their act together and decided to start publishing my posts again. I got so many emails from people asking where I went. I’ve been here! Just bloglovin was either not updating or updating like a day late. Thanks jerks. They have stellar customer service……only took like a week to respond. I think I may be changing over to Feedly! Who is with me! You can follow me here on feedly or have my latest posts sent to your email (my mom really digs it….how is that for advertising ;-)

follow us in feedly


Favorite Purchase

I got so many great recommendations on what to bring on our European travel and you know what the winner was?  This bad boy.  Like hello….why has it taken me this long to discover?  Now you are not at the mercy of questionable faucet water or being charged $4 for a tiny bottle anymore.  Thank you so much Audrey for that stellar rec!  Also the clip is key because like hello yeah that is precious real estate inside my bag.

Favorite Funnies

When Mark tells me he got me a present and I immediately head to the freezer

know me so well


If one of my girlfriends takes too long to get ready on a Friday and my couch ends up winning

crying disney princesses


My feelings of the unlimited tray of peanut butter cookies staring at me right now.

I don't see you


When Mark says that he’s grabbing food with the guys after softball but he’ll bring me a burger home.

I'll allow it


I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!

Friday night


On a total sappy side note….thank you everyone for all your well wishes and sweet words!  I’m going to miss you guys this week!  I promise I’ll have lots of exciting things to share with you when I get back!  Make sure to stop by every day and see who my guest bloggers are!  Alright it’s your turn tell me your favorites from the week. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! xoxoxo

    Have a great time in Greece! I moved over to Feedly too, Bloglovin still hasn’t gotten their act together in over a week. Not cool!

  5. Traci says:

    Oh my gosh, that first pic of the sunset in Greece, I can’t even! You are going to have the best trip ever!

    Have an amazing time away finally getting to spend some amazing married time! Make some memories!

    Yes, the “yes I’m going out, yes I’m going out, yes I’m going out…. nope. Sorry, not feeling it any more” happens all the time!

  7. Have an absolutely amazing and magical time gurlie! <3

    And ughhh… Bloglovin has been awful for several weeks now. I've pretty much switched back to using GFC for my feed again, and typing in the URL's of my favorite blogs who don't have it. Everyone jumped ship with Google for Bloglovin and now Bloglovin looks like they're going to lose everyone unless they get their crap together :-P

  8. Have a great trip!! I’ve also been having issues with bloglovin’. I guess to Feedly I go.

  9. OMG So lucky! I’ve been wanting to go to Greece for so long! I hope you have fun! Also, I’ve totally made that shrimp dish! I love it! I found one that’s a little faster to make and it’s just as good! I’ll have to post it soon!

  10. Have an amazing honeymoon!!! I can’t wait to hear all about it! I love the song you shared! So fun!

  19. Nadine says:

    I am digging that song!!! And I just pinned that recipe. I have never cooked shrimp at home before but I really want to start and that looks delicious! Paula Dean said a little butter never hurt, right? Like dairy! :)

  24. Runwright says:

    Your blog redesign is really striking.
    it could be because I just cleaned my computer screen (which I don’t do often enough) but your pictures are amazing. I don’t eat shrimp and that picture made me drool :-)
