Friday Favorites – October in Full Swing

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

Happy Friday my loves.  This week has been full of fun activities which has lead to some strong coffee mornings.  Last night we were at the opening game for the Lightning.  We are now official season ticket holders and our seats have incredible views.  I definitely hand this one to Mark.  I even snapped the game winning goal did you see it??  Are you following me yet on snapchat (@meetatthebarre)?  I promise I’m quite entertaining.  Let’s get right into these favorites!


Favorite Song

One of the ones I hit Shazam up for and secretly hoped it wasn’t a 16 year old.  Demi Lovato “Confident”.


Favorite Moment of the Week

Did you read my feature?  It was such a crazy feeling being interviewed and when I actually read through someone else’s eyes how much I do on a daily basis, it made me tired just reading it.

Favorite Workout

Good one to get the heart rate up in the morning.

Cardio workout

Favorite Purchase

These over the knee boots from Sole Society are arriving today.  Tell me they aren’t the most gorgeous color and perfect price point for real leather.  I have a feeling they are going to sell out very quickly.  Jump on them.  If you sign up for their email list you get 20% off your first item.  That is what sold me.

Probably how everyone in my life feels about me

Trying to get Marks attention when he’s watching football

My reaction when my newest online shopping purchase arrives


When I try to impress Mark with something I learned and executed off Pinterest


Me.  Today.  At 4pm.

Alright it’s your turn!  Stop by and tell me what your plans for the weekend are.  We have an Oktoberfest in Tampa downtown by the water that we are hitting up.  I may even be in costume.  We shall see.  Follow me on snapchat to see all the fun go down!  xoxoxo

    Those boots are amazing!! Unfortunately since I dress up for work every day, my weekend attire is generally sweats so they would hardly get worn at my house! Hah

  23. What an amazing feature! So exciting.
    Those boots are going to be so perfect this fall.
    Happy weekend! Enjoy that wine. ;)

  24. It figures that every time I hear a catchy tune on the radio and pray it’s not One Direction or some pop group I’m probably too old for, it is. lol. I have yet to hear Confident though, but I like Demi Lovato. She’s my age-ish. It’s cool.

    Another week of morning gifs forcing me to crack a smile when I have yet to “really” make it through an entire cup of coffee. Man oh man do I wish I could go back in time just to eat fast food again. haha. I cannot eat it now. I turns to absolute poison in my system. lol Cheers to the weekend!

  36. Kristen says:

    that is legit the best wine gif i have ever seen. and that pope gif is hilarious! i feel the same sometimes when i show kc things like look what i did and he’s like okay cool i’m like no you don’t understand! this is awesome. haha. girl your feature was amazing, and i am always tired when reading how badass and busy you are! i also might have teared up reading about your job – that is amazing that you have an impact on kids like that. this might be a stupid request / question, please tell me to shut my pie hole if it is, but do you have any tips or suggestions (or have you written a post and i missed it?) on how to avoid that (childhood obesity?), i mean i’m sure 99% of it’s common sense, but some people lack that sometimes. anywho. how exciting that rachel zoe featured you on instagram! you’re so famous ;) have a good weekend girl!

  37. trish says:

    Happy Friday! Love your new boots! Troy’s the same way with football and I’m the same way with the Pope/Pinterest gif lol! I literally want a cookie whenever I pull off something pinterest-y!

  38. Those gifs!! Kanye, Romona, and the Pope?! Amazing!!! Haha. Those boots are gorgeous, mine are actually a similar color. I read your feature too. I know that I’ve told you this before, but you’re really an amazing person. I agree with what the interviewer said about how you make others feel like they want to be nicer, work harder, etc. You have totally done that for me and continue to inspire me. So thank you!! OK, the cheesy train has departed now.. haha. Have a wonderful weekend lady, and relax!!! :-)

  39. Congrats on your feature!! you are so cool :)

  40. Kristina @ Medicine and Manicures says:

  43. Bahah I can so see you pulling the “swan move” – in the best possible way, of course! The Pope gif… men never appreciate our many talents, I swear. I’ll totally be your aesthetic photographer if you’ll be mine; I need to up my game lol. Happy, happy weekend, gorgeous! Jealous of your 4:00 cocktails!

  44. I loved reading the article you got featured in. Congrats on that! It is incredible how much you pack into your schedule. I’ve always wondered when you have time for blogging since you also have a social life like going out to the game last night.

  45. charity says:

    I need to try that workout and check out those boots! TGIF!

  46. Very nice feature!! You should seriously do a Day in the Life of…post. I struggle so much with getting it all in. Like today…no Friday Favorite post from me because I was already up till one just catching up on other blog stuff and life:(. One thing great about being an instructor I’m sure is that it keeps you accountable and on top of our game for working out! But think about doing a post like that….I’d be glued!

  47. Meghan says:

    I’m in love with those boots! I’m all about over the knee and I need a pair of brown ones because I don’t have any! I see this as a purchase in my future. I really loved your feature, it amazes me how much you get done.

  53. Runwright says:

    I think every lady should friends who take “spontaneous” pictures of them, especially when that lady is a blogger who needs awesome pics of every single event for a post.
