Friday Favorites – Football Friday

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

Happy Friday my loves!  Thank goodness for short work weeks right?  Also, for the start of football season!  I am currently typing away while watching my Pats roll over the Steelers.  I am so happy football season is upon us.  That and the fact the Gators may actually have an offense this year?  I am definitely looking forward to this weekend.  I need time to catch up that is for sure.  Let’s get right into these favorites.

Happy Weekend

Favorite Song

Happy Friday tunes.  Such a great beat, add to your running playlist or just crank up the radio with the windows down.  Avicii “Waiting For Love”.

Favorite Recipe

I am absolutely making these this weekend.  Full recipe here.

Cauliflower bites

Favorite Workout

Try not to hit snooze and take 10 minutes for these stretches this morning.  I guarantee it will set the tone for the rest of your day.

Yoga sequence

Favorite Purchase

burgundy suede skirtI got so many questions about this skirt in my recent instagram picture.  It is real suede and under $40.  I kind of want to order it in every single color.  I have hips so I sized up to a medium and it fits perfectly.  In love.  It looks so high end and it’s held up really well.  Major win.  How gorgeous is that watch?  It’s from the Rachel Zoe box of Style Fall.  Did you see my full review here yesterday?  Check out to see what other fab goodies were in there.

Favorite Funnies

Being on a work conference call when all you want to do is eat lunch


When I get to finally sit down and eat lunch at 3pm

food tastes so good

Then I start feeling like this…..

have to work

Having a conversation with talenti gelato at night


When I get an email alert about my latest order is ready to ship



Then I get a side eye from Mark when he is carrying all the boxes in


Finally, when Mark asks why I’m so obsessed with snapchat.

    I never heard of cauliflower nuggets before – how intriguing! I should stretch for a few minutes each minute my leg has been on fire this past week (think I pulled my achilles). Love your gifs as always! LOL.

  10. Funny, I was writing my post while watching the game too, but as a Seahawk fan I had a much different reaction to the game and all the reveling in the Super Bowl victory. Trying to focus on the fact that football is back and just smile instead of cry haha. Super cute skirt btw. Have a great weekend!

  11. Nadine says:

    I was not happy with the outcome of that game last night. Steelers fan over here. I guess we can agree to disagree on NFL and college football teams lol. That skirt is absolutely fabulous and you clearly need it in every color!!! That first gif is so me on the phone at work every single day! Have a fabulous weekend!!!
