Friday Favorites – Marching It

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

Happy Friday!  This week has been way too jam packed.  I am looking forward to this weekend, getting some relaxing in and spending time with Mark.  The weather has been so gorgeous in Florida lately, it has been making it impossible to want to do any work inside.  Remember when it was nice out and you would always try to beg your teacher for “class outside?!?”  I think it only worked once….  Let’s get right into these favorites!

Happy Weekend

Favorite Song

Feel good Friday tunes for you Kygo – Stay ft Maty Noyes.  Windows down and hair flying to this one.

Favorite Recipe

Easy and filling dinner, Taco stuffed sweet potatoes.  Made these for dinner during the week and are man approved.  I use Fage greek yogurt for sour cream sub, tons of protein and no fat.  Plus, the swap was not noticed….Pin from original here.



Favorite Workout

Awesome round up of moves you might see in a Pure Barre class.  My only suggestion would be to hold onto a counter top or sturdy surface when doing the thigh exercises.  Also, the second thigh she demonstrates, you don’t have to get your leg that high (although it’s majorly impressive and she’s not holding on!) but it’s more important to keep your leg straight then worrying about how high.  Focus all the moment from the muscle you are moving, small tiny movements to feel that burn.  Check it here.

Favorite Purchase

Everything in this under $50 post but especially this swim coverup and these flats that are insanely comfy.

Favorite Funnies

Dying laughing over this.  Seriously everyone has had that upstairs neighbor right?


When someone asks me my opinion about the current affairs of the Presidential candidates


When your friend tries to excuse herself to go to the bathroom at a work function


Sitting down to brunch and trying to decide betweens Eggs Benedict  or a burger



The joy when your brunch mate tells you lets just order both and share


Every single piece of clothing on Spring shopping guides


My exact thoughts on a Friday at 5pm


Now it’s your turn, stop by and tell me your favorites from the week!  I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

    One of these days I am legit going to try your workout videos. They always look amazing and then I just forget as the week gets busy. But boy do I need this one! Also, loving that fringe bag and those maxi dresses. So cute!

  2. I’m not much of a chef, but the taco sweet potatoes look awesome! Might have to give that a try!

  3. Those sweet potatoes look delish! And, that fringed handbag is SO fun!!

  4. That is my upstairs neighbor. When I first saw this video I couldn’t stop laughing, I swear my neighbors try their hardest to be as loud as possible it really is impressive the noise they make.

  11. Rebecca Jo says:

    haha… I have the same GIF for the same reason – this selection of candidates this year. Lord, help us.

    I LOVE me some Fage in place of sour cream. Totally cant tell the difference!
    I so am trying the meat free version of tacos in sweet potatoes this weekend. I’ll use black beans instead!!!

  12. Andi says:

    Hahaha your funnies are the best! :)

  13. Nadine says:

    The burger Amanda, always get the burger!!! Hahaha!!! Love all the spring looks right now!!! And I made the stuffed taco potatoes this week too!! I have been subbing greek yogurt for sour cream for Chris for years before he ever noticed lol. He caught me one day spooning some on and was like you grabbed the wrong container. I was like uhhh no I didn’t its the same stuff we have used for the last year hehehehehehehe. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!

  14. Those sweet potatoes look amazing! Laughed so hard at the upstairs neighbor. So true!

  15. Jaelan says:

    I am 100% making those sweet potatoes this weekend! I have a huge meal prep coming up. Happy Friday!

  16. Lindsay says:

    This post is filled with so much goodness, I don’t know where to begin! How about those sweet potato filled tacos?? Can’t wait to try this, and after, I’ll check out that barre video.

  17. Those sweet potatoes look yummy! Everyone’s spring wishlist’s are getting me in trouble!! Have a great weekend, girl!

  18. The weather has been absolute perfection lately, and I intend to spend as much of it outside as possible this weekend! And man I do not miss apartment living…. I had upstairs neighbors like that. It was a complete nightmare! That’s seriously what I pictured them doing *oy*! Happy Friday <3

  19. We had turkey taco salad last night, it was so yummy…and these sweet potatoes look so good too! Might have to give them a try! Happy weekend!

  20. So luckily, I guess, I moved a while back, so no crazy upstairs neighbors. But seriously, that video is pretty much spot on.

    Also, that Parks & Rec meme, yup. 5PM on the DOT I am out o’ here. Don’t ask me for anything. At all. Haha

  21. That last gif!! LOL!!! That collage of clothes.. Yes to all of it. Our neighbors upstairs actually sent Chris that video a few months ago. After he had told them that we can hear them all of the time. The guy is like the heaviest walker and sometimes it sounds like they are dropping cement blocks. Anyway… have a great day today and a fab weekend!! :-)

  22. Kaitlin says:

    That presidential funny, LOL. Seriously the whole thing feels like an SNL skit!!! Have a great weekend!

  23. Marie says:

    Love sweet potatoes! That last meme is hilarious. I go crazy when someone calls my office at 5 of 5 on Friday. It’s like are you serious? Or when people come into the store at 5 to close and grab 20 dresses to try on. The worse thing is they leave the fitting room a mess and NEVER buy anything. I once had someone make me stay an hour plus after close because she just needed a “dress” Guess, what she bought nothing! I wanted to scream.

  24. Meg Taylor says:

    Love that song!! Perfect for the Friday work day :) Also, those stuffed sweet potatoes look soooo good. My husband would totally be on board :) Have a great weekend!

    Meg, Borrowed Heaven

  25. The kid on the wedding dress! Sometimes I want to just pretend I haven’t grown up and don’t know any better than to do something like that… and JUST do it.
    The sweet potato looks pretty amazing and I could definitely eat that. Maybe TODAY.

  26. Holy cow those sweet potatoes look great! I will add those to my to make list. Enjoy your relaxing weekend. I have been going nonstop and am looking forward to one of those someday!

  27. Hahah come 5:00, it’s too late for work requests; cheers to that! Oh how I have missed your funnies round-ups. Have the best weekend! And thank you for an awesome taco alternative!

  28. Oh my gosh must try those taco boats!!!!! Have a wonderful weekend Amanda!

  29. jess says:

    I just love your Friday posts – I get to find something to eat, shop and bust out laughing! Happy weekend love!

  30. hahaha that presidential candidate gif!!! you NAILED it.

  31. Julie Joy says:

    Bahaha. Love those GIF’s. Perfection. That stuffed sweet tater recipe sounds so odd and so delicious! Gosh, that workout makes my thighs burn just watching it! I love it because I could do those pregnant as well! Awesome!

  32. Zelle says:

    The hover seat might be my least favorite PB thigh ever – we did it last night. I die every time. Hope you have a fab weekend!

  36. I’m loving all of the nice weather lately too! With laptops we should be able to work from anywhere right, so why not outside? Those taco stuffed sweet potatoes sound absolutely amazing! I hope you have a great weekend!

  39. Courtney B says:

    Mmmmm, love that recipe idea! I love to have a handful of simple recipes that I can throw together in a pinch… And I LOVE how healthy it is!! I’m on a mission to get this body back in shape, ha! Dang babies! At least he was worth all this hard work to get back to where I was ;)
    Also checking out that workout! Hope you had a great weekend!

  40. kristen says:

  42. Kait says:

    Omg that workout video kills me because she gets her legs so high. I could only DREAM of such flexibility, but I love it!

  43. Oh, another new song for me! I love Kygo’s “Stole the Show” too! I love the sweet potato idea but my husband is not fan! He’s a sucka – total meat and white potato guy! And I love the gifs at the end – giggles!
