Friday Favorites – Mid January Rolling

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

Happy Friday!  This week flew by for me and I am absolutely looking forward to this weekend.  No big plans over here but hopefully we can get some projects around the house tackled, you know all that glamorous stuff.  I have been so in love with all my local wall art around where I live.  Talk about color inspiration right?  Let’s get right into these weekly favorites!

Happy Weekend

Favorite Song/Video

If you have 10 minutes watch this video.  I mean Adele’s voice is so unbelievable.  She is also hilarious!  When she starts rapping I almost hit the floor.  If you follow me on snapchat (@meetatthebarre) over Christmas you may have seen that my sister and I are going to see her together in September in Philadelphia.  I cannot wait!  I love Philly because I lived there for Grad school, I was at UPenn for my Masters.  It will be so fun to go back to some of my favorite restaurants and of course see Adele.  Have you gotten the cd yet?  It’s incredible.  I definitely sing at the top of my lungs on a daily basis to it.  Check this video you won’t regret it!

Favorite Recipe

The weather has finally cooled down.  Time for soups and crockpot cooking.  How good does this Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Soup full recipe here.


Favorite Workout

Great printable workout that you can do before work or when you get home!


Favorite Purchase

Did you check out my post on the newest up and coming brands?  I am so in love with these SANCIA saddle bags.  Such a great Chloe dupe but for a much better price point!SANCIA

Favorite Funnies

When I’m running late for barre and I get stuck behind every driver who stops at newly turned yellow lights


When you are totally stuffed but then dessert gets brought out


When Mark tries to help with cleaning out the closet


When someone walks by while I’m taking fashion pictures for the blog


When I accidentally leave my workday alarm on for the weekends


Coming home after drinking too much champagne.  Side note holy crap is that a raccoon in someones house????


Last.  When I finally was handed my $25 Publix gift card Holiday “bonus” the other day.  Thank you Corporate America.



Now it’s your turn!  Stop by and tell me your favorites from the week.  What are your plans this weekend?  Have a fab day!  xoxoxo

  2. That work out is perfect. I do similar ones a few days a week! I work from home, so I love taking a mid day break to workout. I will have to save this one! That soup looks amazing btw! Yum!

  3. I definitely need to do that workout… when I’m not ridiculously sore. And the raccoon in the hallway is hilarious. But like you, I’m wondering why the heck is there a raccoon in someone’s house?!?! Good luck with your house stuff! Happy Friday! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  7. Meghan says:

    I have the Adele Carpool Karaoke video in my favorite post today too! It was so funny, my favorite part was her facial expression when James Corden hit those couple good notes towards the beginning. She seems like such a normal person and not a mega-superstar!

  8. Love love love Adele! She is my favorite to karaoke. And I love that she’s hilarious – all the more lovable. :)

  9. Ashley says:

    Hahaha I feel the exact same way when the light just turns yellow and someone slams on their breaks. Hello, the yellow isn’t a RED!

  10. Rachel says:

    OMG I want to make that soup this weekend. You KNOW I’m crazy about soups lately haha.
    Loving your funnies, as always. At least you got $25…I got one $10 gift card to Target from one of the families I work with out of 50 students (and some cookies and hot chocolate from two others). You are a millionaire as far as I’m concerned lol

  22. Jenn says:

  23. Emily says:

    That butt workout looks quite painful. And that creamy chicken and mushroom soup sounds SO good, and oddly enough we have just about all the ingredients already….holla!

  24. Kaitlin says:

    Ahh! I LOVED the Adele video too – not that I expected anything less but she was awesome and I really just want to be her BFF. Love her!

  25. Karly says:

    I’m pretty sure the Adele and James Corden video is everybody’s favorite this week – I’m obsessed with it! And, how lucky are you that you got her concert tickets? Chicago was gone in like .2 seconds. I hope you have a great weekend!

  26. That is going to be a fabulous concert for sure. So the whole album is that good? Been thinking about buying it on vinyl in preparation for my next big purchase, a turntable:) Have a great weekend Amanda!

  27. bahahah the gifs today are on point!!

  28. Nichole says:

    We got tix to see Adele in Miami and I cannot wait! Bahahah, yes to the dessert gif!

  29. Missy says:

    I think I may be the only person in the world that is just not into Adele. My friends like to torture me and play it all the time. That soup looks amazing! I am heading to a Mardi Gras ball tonight, can’t wait to get glammed up! Have a nice relaxing productive weekend!

  30. jessi otey says:

    That Adele stuff is golden and I will def be trying that recipe!!! Have a great weekend!

  31. That booty workout looks like it was made for me! And how funny is that raccoon gif?? DYING!

  32. Your Friday funnies always crack me up! And I am so jealous of all the beautiful wall murals in your town! That workout looks great! I have to check out more of Popsugar for workouts like you recommended! That Superwoman pose is killer! And I am convinced while doing it my limbs are all literally only an inch from the floor and I resemble much more someone lying facedown than exercising!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  33. I literally had to stop myself from laughing out loud at your funnies! The one of the raccoon is hilarious! That creamy chicken and mushroom soup looks amazing, and now is the perfect time to make it!

  34. Kara says:

  36. The wall art is gorgeous. We don’t see much of that around here. Lucky you getting to see Adele! That should be a blast with your sister. Happy Friday and enjoy the weekend girlie!

  37. Courtney says:

    I absolutely loved the car pool karaoke with Adele! She has such a great voice and is so down to earth, not to mention the rapping skills damn. Just wish her tickets weren’t so expensive or i’d be right there seeing her!

  38. Lindsay says:

    That was your bonus? BOO. Big one!! Yay for Philly!!!!

  39. That chicken and mushroom soup sounds amazing!!

  40. Yes to the yellow lights. And heck yes to the Adele video. That was fantastic. I just love her so much!

  41. Bri says:

    I haven’t seen that Adele video before; I LOVE it! She is so cute!

  42. I seriously just sat here for 15 minutes and watched the entire Adele video . . . and laughed out loud several times! Good one! And since menu planning sucks, I’m stealing everyone’s food recommendations for this weeks dinner . . . so thank you! And confession . . . I should probably stop skipping over the workouts everyone posts and actually do something! Should being the operative word there! Ha! Have a super weekend!!

  43. That soup looks so good. Lol thanks for the alarm reminder…I need to change my Monday alarm so I don’t wake up at 5 am.

  44. Nothing says love like Publix gift cards! ;)
    And that recipe makes me wish I was the kind of person who makes soup from a recipe instead of a can, but… lolnope.

  45. Omg I need that lazy girls butt work out like crazy!! woohoo!! I love the adele car karaoke! OMG its amazing! Hope you are having a great weekend!

  46. Owen Davis says:

    OMGGGG I died over that Adele video!!! I am so obsessed with her! She sung our first dance song. Had FRONT ROW tickets a few years ago before she was hugely famous and she canceled because thats right when all her throat issues started. I am still heartbroken :( Got her new cd in my stocking for Christmas and haven’t stopped listening yet!

  47. Jess says:

    I’m definitely feeling soups in this weather. I made some veggie chili this week and it hit the spot!

  48. Kayla MKOY says:

    Is that carpool Adele video not the BEST thing you’ve ever seen?! I freaking love her, but now its been taken to a new level. Also, James Corden has the coolest job ever (as does Jimmy Fallon!)! So jealous you get to see her later this year! EEK!

  49. LOVE that Adele video. Your GIF about Mark helping in the closet rings way too true for me too! And hahahaha about the raccoon! xo, Champagne&Suburbs

  50. I have watched that Adele carpool karaoke video more times than I should admit! (;

  51. Oh, gosh! I loved that Adele video. Apparently that guy does that segment with a lot of singers and I wasted probably 45 minutes watching them the other day!
