Friday Favorites – Mid February

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

Happy Friday!  My sister and her kiddos are in town so I am getting in some much needed family time.  I’ve been snapping away if you follow me on snapchat @meetatthebarre.  I hope everyone had a great week and looking forward to the holiday.  Mark and I have a dinner planned in for tonight that he is cooking and I cannot wait to relax with some steaks and a good bottle of wine.  Let’s get right into these favorites!

Friday Favorites

Favorite Song

Such a great beat, windows down, sunroof open kind of jam.  Elle King “America’s Sweetheart“.

Favorite Recipe

Seriously how good does this look?  Vietnamese Curry Chicken and Rice Noodle Salad Bowl full recipe here.



Favorite Workout

I got stuck in the worst traffic trying to head to barre on Wednesday night so when I got home I did these two workouts back to back and felt like I got a really good sweaty heart pumping workout!  I really like the instructor in the first one, calming voice and great correctional cues throughout.


Favorite Purchase

This BB Dakota jacket from this post.  Make sure this is the last day to enter to win this necklace!

BB Dakota and Tory Burch Satchel

Favorite Funnies

Trying to figure out the exact amount I need to add to my cart to qualify for free shipping with my coupon code but factoring in that tax doesn’t count….

Finally getting that takeout delivery you’ve been waiting on for the past 45 minutes

Should I bring you the wine menu?



When I order the special meal on the menu and they come back and say they just sold out of them



Then trying to figure out an alternative



Finally.  Let’s be honest we’ve all done this before


Alright now it’s your turn!  Tell me your favorites from the week and what your plans are for the weekend!  Also, don’t forget this is the last day for you to enter for your chance to win a custom necklace by Hands High Designs!

    Oh my gosh that last funny is great! And I seriously love all of your outfit photos in front of all those fun walls! Hope you have a good weekend with your fam!

  13. February 12, 2016 / 9:21 AM

    I have that exact same black dress that you are wearing! Is it from Shoshanna? It is one of my very favorites and I wore it to my Valentines dinner last year! Love it!!

  14. February 12, 2016 / 9:44 AM

    That gif about ordering the special made me think of something. When Chris and I were first dating and we were out for dinner everything that I wanted to order the restaurant was out of. Like umm what. Haha. Love that one about the wine menu too. You know that I LOVE that jacket and that recipe looks delicious. I hope that you have a fab weekend with your family and enjoy your steak and wine! :-)

    I’m in love with Elle King, love her sound! There isn’t anything more disappointing than not getting the meal you were hoping for, life’s biggest let down.

  16. February 12, 2016 / 10:25 AM

    Loving your snaps of the cuties at the pool yesterday! That jacket is to die for! Have a fabulous time with your fam:)

  17. February 12, 2016 / 10:28 AM

    So glad that you’re getting to spend time with the family! I love Elle King, and I still can’t get over that necklace from your outfit this week. Enjoy your dinner tonight!

  18. February 12, 2016 / 10:52 AM

    Yay! Just followed you on Snapchat! Its my recent obsession! Happy weekend!

  19. February 12, 2016 / 10:54 AM

    Your memes get me every week. I love them! They are exactly what I need on a Friday morning. Also love that jacket so much!

  20. February 12, 2016 / 11:18 AM

    I am DYING about the Should I bring you the wine menu? gif.

    LOL for real.

    Happy Friday!

  21. February 12, 2016 / 11:19 AM

    Oh my, the funnies are hilarious and the salad bowl looks delicious!
    xo, Lily

    I am totally saving that cardio pilates workout! I always feel like I have to get my heart rate up – even doing pilates or yoga – so this is perfect!

  23. February 12, 2016 / 11:41 AM

    Enjoy the family time! Wine and steaks on a night in sounds like a dream. All of your gifs this time are so me! Happy weekend!

  24. February 12, 2016 / 11:48 AM

    Great gifs as always. I love that black dress you have-so cute and perfect for the holiday!

  25. February 12, 2016 / 11:53 AM

    Steak and wine sounds kinda good! I will be having HH with a gf today, lunch with my gma tomorrow and that covers it for my Valentine’s plans. The Vietnamese dish looks amazing and I have been sorta eating many of the same things lately, so a little change is in order.

  26. February 12, 2016 / 12:18 PM

    We make a variation on that Vietnamese dish all the time but that one looks DELICIOUS! Hope you have a great time with your family this weekend!!!

  27. February 12, 2016 / 1:15 PM

    So fun that your family is in town! I loved seeing them swimming on snap. Cannot believe it’s hot enough to swim in Fl, it’s SNOWING in NC right now! Xo

  28. February 12, 2016 / 3:50 PM

    I’m so in love with Elle King it’s not even funny! America’s Sweetheart is so good! And I’m definitely guilty of doing the whole kicking the door thing, only to realize that it’s pull instead of push. Hope you have a great weekend!

  29. February 12, 2016 / 3:50 PM

    that last gif is the funniest ever. and the math one made me laugh so hard, that was me the other day, i thought i’d gotten it all figured out and then i got a coupon for $40 off and i was like bloody hell i’m not doing this again so i just paid for shipping haha. enjoy your family time!

  30. February 13, 2016 / 12:24 AM

    I had not heard that Elle King song I really like it. I was obsessed with Exes and Ohs a few months ago. How hard are those workouts? Are these easy to do at home? Sometimes I do not want to hit the gym but it’s hard to do workouts at home. Sounds like a fun weekend planned. We don’t do anything for Valentine’s Day so it’s gonna be a chill weekend for me.

  31. February 13, 2016 / 8:44 AM

    I love it when you post music . . . then I get to jam out to it while I’m reading and typing! Love that you have family in town . . . enjoy every moment! That butterfly wall is awesome . . . and you look amazing in your little black dress!

  32. February 13, 2016 / 10:51 AM

    So jealous of all the NJ peeps enjoying the sun and warm weather! Hope you have a great weekend with them!! xo

  33. February 13, 2016 / 4:18 PM

    lmao… perfect gif for figuring out the free shipping conundrum!

  34. February 13, 2016 / 7:39 PM

    Haha kicking the door in that is a pull door – so good!

  35. February 14, 2016 / 10:48 PM

    Okay, so I was reading a post on how to drive more traffic from Bloglovin’ and how to get noticed. Your comment and blog caught my eye and I really like it! Your LBD in the beginning is adorable! I am really new to blogging and I would love it if you checked out my latest post on bloglovin’!
    I would love any tips you have as well, if you have time!

    Bahahaha that guy kicking the door?! Yet he just stands and stares post door kicking failure and waits for someone to open it. Yes yes, so guilty of doing this, but at least I open my own door. I can totally relate to that math one with coupon codes. haha. Man oh man do I HATE paying shipping. It’s the worst when you qualify for free shipping and once your coupon code is applied you aren’t. The struggle! haha
