Friday Favorites – The Last One in August

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

I am so ready for September and you want to know why?  One word.  Football.  I love football, everything about it.  Not only do I love actually watching the game but lets talk about the food, fun and travel that goes along with it.  I have a trip to LSU booked already and I can’t wait to be NOLA bound this Fall.  Did it seem like the longest week btw?  I am so looking forward to this weekend.  I have a ton of things I need to get checked off the list and hopefully I can get it all done.  That sunset picture btw was taken last night on the beach in Sarasota.  Straight Florida living right there!  Let’s get right into these favorites.

Happy Weekend

Favorite Song

Do y’all see by now with my snaps where I find all my songs?  Clearly by driving and listening to bpm.  This one has been one of my major favs right now.  Coleman Hell – 2 Heads (Your Turn Remix).


Favorite Recipe

Almost done with my huge jar of almond butter from Costco.  This recipe helped.  Thai Peanut Sauce Spaghetti Squash full recipe here.

  1. I don’t have that black maxi skirt yet, but I need it in my life. I am using a couple of things as incentive to stick to a health plan I’ve recently started. I’ve suspended shopping until I meet a certain goal. I can do it!

  2. I can’t even wait for NOLA, but you know who might be more excited than both of us – our husbands LOL!! Loved the snaps of the beach last night – so gorgeous!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  3. My no butt definitely needs to do that butt exercise pretty much all day every day. And yes to finding the perfect online ordering combo! It always feels like the biggest win to figure that out! Happy Friday girl!

  6. Em says:

    The hubs is ALL about football! lol. And seriously, I feel like running a victory lap when I also figure out a way to get free shipping without going way over the minimum haha. Happy Friday!!!

  7. Michelle says:

    Those booty exercises, I faithfully do three out of the four as part of my routine. Yes, I feel they work! Squats are the killer. Thanks for sharing your exercise picks, always good to switch things up a bit and not have to do the research. LOL

  8. Sara says:

    AMEN to the longest week ever. I was wandering around Penn yesterday afternoon thinking, “Dang. These kids are studious. First week of class and all up in the library on Friday afternoon…” and then I realized IT WAS THURSDAY. I’m missing my nephew’s senior opening game tonight… and I might be a little bummed about it. :(

  9. Trish says:

    i’m so sad it’s football is back already. Didn’t we just have a season last year? I don’t understand why I’m being punished. Jk! While everyone enjoys the games I’ll be in my corner crocheting lol. Happy Friday!

  37. Erin LFF says:

    YES TO FOOTBALL SEASON! :) :) :) Jared and I are trying to figure out if we can fit an away game into our schedules this year- fingers crossed! And I just stocked up on some awesome favorites from Ulta, scored the free shipping AND still could use a discount code- score!

  38. kristen says:

    YES. seriously I love that happy medium where I get free shipping but I’m not $20 over haha. such a good feeling!
    that gif with the leftovers is seriously terrifying. is that real life?!

  39. Honestly, it still blows my mind you get all you do done. And I just know a handful of it from reading your blog. Which ironically is one of the many things you manage to get done. (; You always have superior quality and never complain. I’ll be a reader as long as you’re around. Have a great weekend and try to relax. (;

  40. That spaghetti squash sounds amazing! Happy Friday!

  43. Amanda says:

    When people eat my leftovers I am MUCH more violent.

  44. Karly says:

    I always love the music on your snaps – they are the best songs to get me moving! Thanks for the heads up about Helene’s webinar, too. Hope you had a good weekend!

  45. Gina says:

    ok, that Thai Peanut Spaghetti squash looks incredible. I’ll be trying that one out. Thanks for the share;)

  46. I absolutely love how you styled your black maxi, so many great options! I can’t believe football season is here but I am not complaining at all! Happy Monday, lady! Xo, Stephanie

  47. Forte frumoasa lectura , chiar mi-am regasit o parte din temerile mele de adolescenta in care nu stiam ce decizii sa iau in anumite momente. Dar fiecare invata din propriile greseli pentru a putea da sfaturi copiilor care nu inteleg pozitia acestora in diferitele lor probleme. Intelepciune si liniste!
