Friday Favorites – August Rolling

Happy Friday my loves.  I seriously feel like I was just sitting here writing my Friday post and we are back here again.  This week flew by. Does anyone else feel like the lazy days of Summer are coming to an end?  My inbox is starting to blow up with opportunities and exciting brand collaborations.  My class is going to start in two weeks.  Football season will be here before you know it.  I have more trips booked for the Fall then I’ve ever before.  Things are going to get crazy over here.  I feel like I need to enjoy these few weeks of unscheduled bliss before the fury of the Fall kicks in.  I have some incredibly opportunities that are in the final stages of coming together and I cannot wait to share them with you!  Definitely stay tuned for some fun announcements!  Let’s get into the Favorites from the week.

On my bucket travel list of places to visit.  Perhaps next Spring?!  This gem is also on my list, just need to convince Mark about it.


This song has such a cool vibe to it and I can’t get enough of it!


We have a plank challenge going on right now at my barre studio.  How about this 10 minute plank workout then to prepare?


If I see short ribs on any menu….it’s hard for me to say no.  Sending this recipe to a certain someone to try his hands at this weekend.


This cocktail recipe combines all three of my favorites drinks into one.


How to take your time back.  I’ve been working on that this past Summer.


When everything from your Nordstrom sale online order fits perfectly

nordstrom order fits


Coming back from vacation to all the unread emails and assignments that are due



When you have so much work to get done over the weekend and then you watch all the snaps of your friends day drinking at the beach

being restrained

When you are the last person to know the gossip in the office



When you are running late to spin class, all the bikes are taken, and you only brought spin shoes to work out in


When you are trying to sneak out to grab some lunch but that one chatty person in your office is rounding the corner


Alright now it’s your turn tell me your favorites from the week!  Do you have any blogging wins that you want to share?!  What about something big in life that has happened or a good accomplishment at work?  Let’s celebrate the wins today.  I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

    I think Italy will be a perfect vacation for you. Im going on vacation next week and Im seriously already dreading the bulk of emails Ill return to.

    The, “I laugh to keep from crying” meme is so me. I’m always ready for a vacation, even it means following a vacation I just returned from. Excited to hear about the new projects you’re working on!

    yay for trips booked – how exciting! i totally want to travel everywhere, duh, haha but we really want to go back to Italy and go everywhere we possibly can. we loved Rome so much, and KC is never one to suggest travel but he suggested going back to just Italy which made my heart happy. Positano/The Amalfi Coast is definitely on that list, if we do!
    um, that cocktail looks amazing.
    that laugh to keep from crying is hilarious and perfect for so many things.
    have a good weekend!

    The local gas station had a sign up this morning that said “18 Fridays till Christmas”… there’s your sign summer is ending.

    That homer gif had me laughing out loud. I always sneak out the back door for lunch for that reason! This post is chock full of awesome, exciting collaborations, short ribs, super cool places to visit and rose’ margaritas!? I went to brunch a few weeks ago and their version of a mimosa was rose’ and grapefruit juice. Holy delicious! Have a great weekend, I hope you get those short ribs!

  17. August 12, 2016 / 12:04 PM

    Dang! Your fall is going to be insane, but sounds like it will be jam packed full of new and exciting things as well. haha Don’t we all wish we could be lounging on the beach with our friends. (; Nope. Work life. haha

    I think I’ve just decided my body wasn’t made to plank! ;) This may or may not be my best excuse yet…

    Oooooh, Positano! Saving that pin so I can get bitten by the travel bug later tonight when I sit down and daydream about going overseas.

  19. August 13, 2016 / 9:49 AM

    I’m astounded at how fast summer has gone. I have the craziest travel this fall too. I’m overwhelmed just thinking about all of it. Definitely saving that article about time management. ;)

  20. August 13, 2016 / 11:23 AM

    Oh gosh I need that time management article in my life…and cracking up at all your funnies. The short rib recipe does look amazing! Hope the hubs decides to make it for you guys to try! Have a wonderful weekend!

  21. August 13, 2016 / 3:19 PM

    I cannot wait to try that short rib recipe. Your other crock pot on is my go-to!
