Here’s hoping this first Friday of August finds you feeling well and ready for the weekend! Cheers to a great one! I am ready to hit the ground running with this week’s favorites and as usual I am all over the place, so let’s get started!
Favorite #1 – Oh the kindness of others always gets me and is definitely a FAVORITE! This week I was the lucky recipient of a sweet gift from one of my husband’s co-workers. Fan works with my husband and reads my blog. She recently traveled to Italy and China and brought me back the prettiest little purse! Look at how perfect this is for me! Thank you Fan for thinking of me and the unexpected kindness!
Favorite #2 – Well it would hardly be a Friday Favorites if I didn’t include a recipe, right? I’ve made this one twice and my husband and I love it! It’s healthy and easy. Give this Thai Chicken Skillet a try – it’s loaded with delicious veggies and full of flavor!
Favorite #3 – So I know I said I wasn’t placing anymore orders from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale but I did. Not clothing mind you but I did buy two throws for my home. My bestie Lisa bought a few and raved about how cozy they were. Since we updated our home last year I have been on a mission to replace our old dark brown throws. These are perfect, so cozy! They are on sale for almost $15 off the regular price and honestly I have searched TJMaxx and Ross and couldn’t find any I liked as well! Scoop ’em up before the sale is over!
Favorite #4 – My bestie Lorie and I are always on the hunt for a way to switch up our work outs. It’s a bonus when we find something that can be done at home as well as the gym. Seriously no excuses to get that work out in is my FAVORITE! This one can be done at home or the gym and takes 20 minutes. It’s a great workout and you’ll be drenched with sweat when it’s over but so happy!
Favorite #5- Since deciding to share my daily outfits I have a renewed interest in getting myself put together. That’s one of the main reasons I decided to share my daily looks, I needed the accountability! Accountability is how I motivate myself, how about you? It’s my favorite way to accomplish goals! One thing that has come out of this is my need for a wider mirror, this selfie-taking business is hard! First up, here’s how I look most days! Comfy shorts and a tank while I self tan! I wore this to a hair appointment. I wore this later that night to a political event for my friend. She is running for school board and I am so excited and happy to support her!
That’s a wrap on this week’s favorites. This weekend we have plans to meet friends for dinner and then I have a lot of blogging to do! I am so excited because Nolan comes home on Thursday. It will only be for a week before he heads back to school but I’ll take it. We are officially on the 2 week countdown for Collin- he leaves for school on the 17th! Things are about to get interesting around here!
Have a great weekend friends!XO,
