Seriously, where did June go?  I can’t believe this is the last weekend of the month.  I feel like I just got back from Greece and it’s been well over a month already.  Did you check my full Mykonos recap yet?  Does anyone else feel like blogging land has just checked out this Summer?  There is a lot of vacationing going on for sure.  Who wants to come and visit me in FL?  I will be happy to hang out on the beach with you.  Let’s get into these Friday Favorites and chat about my favs in the Nordstrom Sale.

  1. Yum!! I just scarfed down some zucchini noodles with my lunch and now I am hungry for more.
    Also loving that early morning yoga sequence.. now to find the time to blog, do yoga, and get ready for work in the morning. Ugh!
    Thank goodness it’s almost the weekend. Have a great one Amanda!

  2. That morning yoga routine looks like something I need to incorporate into my life. I completely agree with the Sheldon Cooper gif. Is that so wrong?

    I wish I could wake up earlier for the yoga exercises. Unfortunately waking up earlier than 5:30 just doesn’t sit well with me haha. I’ll have to read your post about blogging and working full time because that’s what I’ve been doing since I started blogging and it does get tiring sometimes.

  7. I fee like I can handle that little morning yoga sequence and feel better for doing it!! OMG I’m dying over the duet one and yes to sheldon’s response to stupid people lol!!! I hope you have a great weekend love and make those sweet and spicy zoodles!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  8. I’m on my way to Florida…have a cocktail ready girl. Ha ha, just kidding but would be a blast! Loving all of Nordstroms, especially the sandals. They have the best sales where you can really score some favs for less. Hope your weekend is everything beautiful, fun and full of love!!

  9. sheldon has it right….and if that were to really happen, the world’s population would reduce by 90% LOL

  10. Em says:

    Awww I wish I had a vacation booked in Florida! Although I think I would die training for my marathon in that humidity lol. LOVE that yoga morning routine! I need to incorporate more yoga in my life, it’s such a great way to wind down after a rough day at work! TGIF girl!!

  11. Ohhhh how I wish you hadn’t posted those dresses and platform sandals. Haha!
    I’ve been intentionally trying to avoid the Nordstrom sale. :P
    I can’t believe June is already over!! Where did the time go?

  12. Meghan says:

    I’m pretty sure the Nordstrom sale will be the beginning of the end. Or well the fall preview will actually be the beginning of the end, especially if fringe is huge again. Those noodles though! I’m going to get a soiralizer this weekend- it is happening! I’m tired of being deprived from spiral veggies!

    A short morning yoga sequence is the best thing ever. I do it so I stay away and don’t fall back asleep each moring before my meditation.

  13. So many gorgeous Nordstom Sale options up there! Those flat pink sandals have me swooning!! I have done that same morning yoga sequence several times and it’s a great way to wake up your body for sure! Have a great weekend!

  14. Jenn says:

    You know I love me some zoodles–those will be on my to-make list very soon!
    Love all of your picks from Nordstrom. You are going to get me in trouble again!!! lol
    Your funnies–every week they are the best!
    Hope you have a great weekend girl!

  15. That yoga routine would be perfect first thing in the morning, such a great stretch that I definitely need! And loving your Nordstrom picks, I’d like one of each please!

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

  16. HOLD ON. Are the lyrics really “Papa been smooth since days of drunkaroos”? For real? Why does this feel like something he wouldn’t say?! I always knew the papa been smooth part… But drunkaroos?! Sorry, I’m clearly amazed by that. Anyway, I’m going to check out the sale for a pair of new sandals! While I love wedges and want a new pair (Henry teethed on my nude wedges – can you believe that?! Baby teeth marks in the leather.) I’ll prob be lame and get flats since baby bump + 28 pound toddler + wedge = health hazard, but we’ll see what happens when I’m there with a credit card in hand.

  17. trish says:

    buahaha @ your friday funnies. next time my manager interrupts me at work I’m going to break out “this is not a duet” lol. Love that!

    trish – 5 on Friday

  30. Christina says:

    I’ve been looking for better/healthier grilling sides and that zoodle one is perfect! Especially since our spiralizer just came in but we’ve yet to use it. Love the Nordstrom picks especially the Tory sandals, my favorite kind!

  31. Nice recipe for the spiralizer! I really need to make use of mine more often. I’ve done zucchini which was a success but sweet potato kicked ass. I had to abandon ship and cut the potatoes the old fashion way…lol anyhow i love those black wedges. They look comfortable yet girly and sleek! Have a fab weekend pretty lady!!

  32. Kiki says:

  33. I totally agree that blog world seems kind of quiet this Summer! I know lots of people are on vacation, where I wish I could be, lol! Love your Nordstrom picks, especially all the SHOES! :) Happy weekend!
