Friday Favorites – Last of March

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

Seriously where did this month go?  I feel like I was just recapping our Napa trip in February and now this month is already over.  This has been a long work week for me and I am really looking forward to a low stress and relaxing weekend.  Spring training has been going on this whole month down here in FL and I’m finally getting out to a game with Mark and my fam this weekend.  Make sure to follow along on snapchat (@meetathebarre).  Let’s get right into these favorites!



Favorite Song

Can you tell what songs I’ve been all about lately?  Those chill vibes, clearly I need some calming music in my life at this time.  Yall – Hundred Miles ft Gabriela Richardson.

Favorite Recipe

Bathing suit season will be here before we know it.  Make this over some brown rice or zoodles.  Paprika Chicken & Spinach with White Wine Butter Thyme Sauce, pin from original here.


Favorite Workout

Okay this workout burns so good.  I can’t stand when instructors “sing song” to the counts.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about….just watch it.  However, I can get over it because this is a great workout.  Booty and abs 30 minute scorcher.  Just make sure in the beginning when he is doing all those side standing crunches to keep your abs in tight to protect your low back.


Favorite Purchase

This purse, from this post.  Also, my pinterest boards currently are all about home decorating/rehabbing inspiration.  I look at real estate on a daily basis.  I cannot wait till the right one comes along.  We were trying to hold out on upgrading our mattress to a king because the thought of having to move it again etc.  However, it looks like we may be staying put for a little while longer and continuing to save for our dream house.  I’ve been doing a lot of research and I’m in love with this mattress and this headboard. It has gotten great reviews and it gets shipped to your door.  I am a 7-8 hour sleep gal, you know I get a lot done in one day.  Convincing Mark to upgrade our bed wasn’t that much of an arm twist.  Can’t wait to pull the trigger on this one!  Check out the Yogabed here, 1o year warranty, two free pillows and free shipping!

Favorite Funnies

Anytime I ever have to go to the Post Office…


Getting all the Spring shopping catalogues


When the restaurant runs out of the one thing you actually wanted


Me.  On a Tuesday.  At 11 am.


How I felt during my first platform class at Pure Barre


How I feel recapping on most Mondays especially when I didn’t leave the house on Sunday.


Finally.  My dream Friday night.


Okay now it’s your turn!  Tell me your favorites from the week and what you are up to this weekend.

    I love love that purse. I am not even a pink kind of gal and I love it. Goes amaze with that BB Dakota dress. Seriously on point. Loving. I hear ya with the mattress stuff but you will not regret buy a king. We have one and I would never go back. I LOVE that headboard. If we did not just buy all new stuff a couple of years ago I would be really wanting something like that.

    and again with the funnies. They get me. every. time.

    That chicken recipe looks great. I’m always looking for new ways to make chicken exciting since it tends to feel like I’m eating the same old thing all the time. Have a great weekend!

    Christina :: Simple and Delish

  3. I know, I can’t believe March is already over! We’re trying to see a spring training game this weekend too but we’ll see since… rain. Boo. And that chicken looks SO good! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  10. Rebecca Jo says:

    I am on a home decorating pinterest kick myself. I want so much of my house to be changed… I basically need to hit the lottery to make all my Pinterest dreams come true.

  11. Shelly says:

    What is it with the post office anyway?!! We were just in Orlando last week as my son is in the Astros organization (minors) and since it’s his first year we had to go check things out! Have a great weekend.

  12. Ashley says:

    The Post Office gif is so spot on it’s crazy. I’m pretty sure they all hate their jobs because I’ve never seen them smile at the one I go to. That recipe looks perfect for a weeknight!

  13. I am on a huge home decor Pinterest kick. But I should probably own a home or at least live in one, not some dinky apartment first.

    Also. Every single funny is on point. Especially the no news and the burnt out. By Tuesday gif.

    Happy Friday! Thanks for hosting!

  14. Christianne says:

    Such a lovely post. Happy Friday!
    Xo, Christianne

  15. We are upgrading to a king too and I just bought a super similar bed from Wayfair this week! It’s slightly darker (which was a compromise for the tuffs and studs with my husband!) but I LOVE the one you picked!! Idk about you but I feel like it’s going to change our lives to have a king bed, lol!

  16. Nichole says:

    You had me at white wine butter sauce with that chicken dish, lol. Happy FRIDAY!

  17. Tiffany says:

    Girl I feel ya on the king size bed. We still have a queen but I am longing to upgrade to a king sometime soon.
    That workout does look awesome. Have a great weekend!

  18. Caroline says:

    Love all of those funnies so much. I honestly can’t pick a favorite this week. We have a king size Tempur-Pedic and it is the greatest mattress of all time. Seriously it will change your life. That chicken looks delicious too. Have a fab weekend and Happy Easter to you!! :-)

  19. Kaitlin says:

    How cool that you have Spring Training in your state!! My team does theirs in Arizona and I’ve always wanted to go! Loving the funnies as always … I’m burnt out on a Tuesday at 11 a.m. too, lol!!!! Happy Weekend!

  20. I hope you have a great time at Spring Training! Love your funnies, as usual! Happy Weekend, friend! xo, Champagne&Suburbs

  21. Pinky says:

    Love the recipe, it looks quite delicious!

  22. Nadine says:

    That recipe looks wonderful!!! I have never heard of yoga bed but I am intrigued. I love love love that headboard!!! I really want to upgrade our bed to a king but we too are thinking about moving sometime in the near future so it is hard to justify making those changes now. Hope you enjoy the weekend!

  23. Emily says:

    I did another one of that guy’s ab videos on Popsugar recently and ow. I’m scared to try this one, ha! But really…I can feel my abs quivering already.

  24. jess says:

    That recipe! Yes! I must save that – lovin’ the funnies (always makes my morning!!) Happy weekend friend!

  25. emelia says:

    Me on a Tuesday at 11….HAHAHA, love it! My in-laws were recently in Florida and went to a Pirates game, fun spring training time! Enjoy your weekend and HAPPY EASTER!

  26. I just got (literally 2 nights ago) my brand new king size mattress from Tuft and Needle ( we considered Yogabed as well) and do not regret it….at all. Ever. In a thousand years I will say, praise the Lord for kind size mattresses. I’d love to hear what you think about YogaBed once you get it. I love my Tuft and Needle!

    That headboard is a dream, we’re still looking for one and I didn’t even think about Costco!

  27. Kayla MKOY says:

    Oh my word, I’m more relaxed just LOOKING at that bed!!!! I need it. ;) Caleb and I will probably need to upgrade mattresses within a year or two so I’m going to keep that one in my brain for later. Enjoy your fun weekend!

  28. Love that purse you got! That recipe looks super delicious. :)

  29. Emily says:

    That Paprika chicken looks yummy. :)

  30. kristen says:

    bahahaha that is definitely my dream friday night. and the no news one, yeah that’s basically me every weekend haha.
    yoga bed, interesting! i can’t watch videos with sound at work, but with the sing song do you mean when teachers sing along but they kind of mutter it? so annoying. if you’re not talking about that.. just ignore me. haha.
    have a good weekend!

  31. Karly says:

    Another killer workout! I will be doing that one this weekend. The no news meme sums up why I stopped doing regular weekend recaps lol. Hooray for a new mattress! Have a great weekend, lady!

  32. Lindsay says:

    That yoga bed sounds awesome and the headboard is gorg! Totally worth saving and holding out on moving, because you never know what might come along ;) What the heck is a platform class?!

  33. This month did fly by it’s so crazy!! I think I may actually do that workout today as I didn’t have time to go to the gym – whenever I try and work out at home I get distracted, but I think a video will definitely help. Just followed you on Pinterest! My husband and I are currently rehabbing our house we bought last year and I love to see other inspiration. I’m so ready for it to be over though, haha! Also side note, your Pinterest is so organized – I’m totally inspired to spruce mine up!

  35. Jaelan says:

    Hahahahaha! I hear you about the post office. Man! Those people are something ELSE.

  36. Seriously, where has March gone?! That chicken recipe looks delicious, I’ll have to try it soon! Xo, Stephanie

  37. Julie Joy says:

    Bahaha those gifs! Why is it that almost every post office is full of crotchety bitches?! Ugh! That chicken recipe looks amazing! I love finding new chicken recipes because I get so bored with the ones I make on repeat. :) You always post great workouts and they make me tired just looking at them. Yay for the yogabed. Sounds heavenly.
