Friday Favorites – Summer Rolling

Does anyone else feel like this week was just an extension of the July 4th holiday glazed over the rest of the days?  I feel like I just need a reset button because I’m not ready to go back to my crazy jam packed life.  I didn’t take my computer out once my entire birthday weekend and it was glorious.  Okay, now back to reality.  How is everyone’s Summer going?  Can you believe it’s already July?!?!  I’m starting to get excited for college football season already.  I’m hoping for a winning Gator season!  Okay let’s get into the favorites from the week!

This song HandClap” by Fitz and and the Tantrums is on one of my barre playlists and it immediate puts me in a good mood.


Something I really struggle with while traveling.  This is such a great post on how to plan ahead to make it happen.


I will be making these buffalo chicken tacos this weekend.   Seriously how good do they look?


The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 is less than one week away!  Do you  have your shopping cart and list ready to go?  These Joie fringe heels will be in my cart as well as this Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag which I guarantee will sell out quickly.  It’s not too late to sign up to get early access by being a Nordstrom debit or credit card holder.  Check out my complete post for all the details of when the sale goes live and my top picks.  What is on your list?


How I felt this whole past holiday weekend

When I google something and it proves me right in an argument

When someone lets their amazing lunch leftover worthy dinner be cleared without a to go box

When I actually leave Target with everything on my shopping list and I avoid the shoe aisle



On the weekends when I know my outfit will be involved in a blog post



Alright it’s your turn tell me your favorites from the week and what you are up to this weekend!  What is on  your Nordstrom Anniversary shopping radar?

    These wedges are so gorgeous Amanda! I’m also loving “Hand Clap” and everything I hear off that new album. It’s such the perfect summer soundtrack!

    There is not a single person or blogger I know who isn’t feeling like this about how long the short week has been. It’s universal feeling! That song is so happy, I love it. I always appreciate new music finds.

    Happy Friday!

    I totally feel the same way–coming back from my extra long weekend I am just not with it at all! I LOVE that off-the-shoulder pink dress on you–so pretty! I have a trip to Cali coming up in a few weeks so I’ll definitely be taking those traveling work-out tips with me! Happy Friday girl!

    Completely agree that this week was just an extended July 4th holiday. So many of my clients are still out of town on vacation (luck ducks!). PUMPED for the Nordstrom sale to start!!

  9. July 8, 2016 / 8:12 AM

    That dress is so gorgeous!!!! And I just love it with those shoes. That pink color has been a favorite of mine for quite some time. I just said something yesterday to Chris about football season only being two months away. Cant wait!!! I have been on vacation the last week and totally forgot the Nordstrom sale was coming up. There was a postcard sitting in my mailbox to remind me last night. My wallet is scared. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Love that dress! I’m already getting a list ready for the sale. I told myself not to get anything, but that plan is not going well, so far! ;) Fabulous song to get the weekend started!

  11. July 8, 2016 / 9:21 AM

    I was just saying the other day that football season is getting so close!!! I can hardly stand it, so excited! And yes, this week has been a blur because of the 4th, have a great weekend!

  12. July 8, 2016 / 9:48 AM

    I crammed a full week of work into the last two days it feels like! I am so ready for football too! I have everything to make those tacos, I know what I am having for dinner! Starting to add stuff to my cart at Nordy’s but can’t wait to see all the deals for real! Have a great weekend!

    The whole week was slow, and I loved that about last week! And I’m totally with you, I’m ready to get to thinking about fall! We have one summer vacay left in early Aug and then it’s full speed ahead with back to school planning posts, pumpkin flavored things and FALL! My Pinterest feed already has had a few fall things pop up and I got ridic excited.

  27. July 11, 2016 / 3:19 PM

    I’m still a bit in denial that it’s July! haha. For real, these funnies though…. The Drake/ Target one. Yes, me to a totally “T.” Also, the Anne Hathaway one had me totally rolling!

    That dress is absolutely amazing on you! Tacos sound so good — I was going to make some tonight but spaghetti sounded a little easier to make. Tacos tomorrow though :)
