Friday Favorites



Well hey there... it's Friday again. My favorite day. This week also flew by for me again. It was pretty good and the weekend is also looking promising. Tennis playoffs start tomorrow so here's to hoping I don't choke. I tend to not play as well in the clutch. I'm a head case... Namaste. So lets get to some faves with Amanda if ya don't mind...


I stumbled on this one on IG and that led me to the originator of the ides, the blog Oh Bite It. And I got sucked in to a black hole of horribly delicious food and bad choices like the Fold & Fry Pizza Taco and Bacon Fried Oreos. Yes that is a folded and pan fried Totinos pizza. I am pretty sure my kids would die for this. Doin for the kids... yeah....

~Pizza Tacos!


Sooooo with the purchase of my Zac Brown tickets for the concert next weekend I got the Jekyll & Hyde CD fo free and it came in the snail mail this week. First of all, this man looks amazingly beautiful on the album cover and it is so hard to pick a favorite but... I love this one. Listen up!


Lately it's @drinksforgays... yes it's mostly drinking humor and in bad taste... yes I find it hilarious.


I'm loving little sweet dainty things lately...

80 Impossibly Pretty And Understated Tattoos Every Girl Will Fall In Love With


Married at First Sight... Is anyone else addicted to this show? Y'all know how I feel about marriage but marrying a stranger picked out by scientific matching? A stranger??? Well that's just got good TV written all over it. I predict Jaclyn and Ryan will make it. Even though she kinda threw up in her mouth a little the first time she saw him.

Jaclyn and Ryan R.’s Wedding Album


Jameis Winston first round, first pick... don't fuck it up.

And now for just a few funny folks falling flat on their faces or being stupid or whatever...

Bitten by a shark. Zero Fucks Given. Never drops his beer.  

Floaties and goggles for the ice bucket challenge. She deserved it. 

Love a good prank...

Here friends... let me give you wedgie and rack you and rack myself....

Poor thing... I can't. Stop. Laughing. 

Have a fabulous weekend!

Humpday Confessions and Hashtags


Man, I really be chilling. Don't let too much get to me. But when shit does get to me... oh boy, haha.

for real tho

Time for a few confessions up in here today. Is it really Wednesday already? My week is plugging along quite nicely thank you very much,  so let's get right down to bidness shall we?

I confess.... My daughter got her drivers license yesterday. Someone I gave birth to is now driving my car... I am surprisingly pretty ok with it too. WTF. I hitched a ride to tennis practice last night and she took my car and her sister and brother and went to the grocery store for me. I needed a small list of things and I didn't have to go and get them myself. How sweet is that? She did however manage to "forget" toilet paper so a special trip back to the store was needed. I let her go and didn't say anything... because I'm cool like that. Yeah... forgot my ass #iwassixteenonce 

As I was walking out of work yesterday I was behind a girl whose black dress kept flipping around revealing her white Spanx. Part of me wanted to tell her but the other part of me smirked because the dress was clearly too short for work. I didn't tell her and I was good... I didn't quite have time to snap chat it. I did not need to see that. #spanxyouverymuch

I confess... I really, really love my new job. I feel like the other shoe is going to drop it's too perfect. I'm not super busy yet (not perfect) but everyone is just so freaking nice. People keep telling me I am working for one of the nicest guys in the Atlanta office and I am absolutely doing the inner happy dance because I feel so incredibly lucky. How did this happen? I am starting to feel hopeful...maybe I can fix the rest of my life too...#lizlemonismyspiritanimal

I haven't stepped on the scale in weeks because I am just focused on other stuff right now and losing more weight has taken a back seat. Or has it? I have been pretty damn on point with food 90% of the time (not counting alcohol) and my clothes are still feeling great, loose even. Except for this one effing pair of jeans... still tight.So it's possible that I still could be losing but...I need to get on the scale and face it. Time to hit it hard again. I don't really think you should focus on the number too much but maybe once a month  is a gut check. And I really don't care what the number is I am not giving up my wine...yet #bettydraperwouldbeproud

Monday, April 27, 2015


So... I didn't do shit this weekend! No really... this is going to be the worst weekend recap ever. I would like to say that I was too busy out doing fun things but that's not even it. I had a half kid free weekend, and played a make up tennis match for last weekends rain out and and this weekends last match of the season on Sunday. The best news is my team is going to play offs!! We came in second in our division which means we go in as underdogs but we are still in the play off bracket! Woohoo! I won Saturday and Sunday... fucking baller!

Friday I picked up my free Lynyrd Skynyrd tickets from Kicks 101.5 that I won when I was home doing really important unemployed stuff... like calling radio stations. I also got a new leather and pearl ring from a friend of mine who recently went to the beach. She was with me when I bought one years ago that later broke because I wore it out. I have been on a hunt for a replacement forever and she found it for me. I only had a half kid free weekend because my daughter had to work and she ran a 5k on Saturday morning.  Saturday afternoon miraculously the rain cleared and and I got my match in... and got burnt thru the clouds... dammit. Later I had a little wine with friends, did some shopping, cooking and lounging around. I did not do laundry or housework. And the world did not end. Oh and also I got stood up for a date I was supposed to have on Saturday night. I guess someone chickened out again. Why in the hell do these guys ask me out and then neglect to follow thru??? Ugh... I am nearing the end of my days again for online dating... losers, all of them losers. A couple of months is all I can handle and then I need a break!

I cooked a little... big breakfasts and a huge batch of paleo meatballs for the upcoming week. I got to Skype with one of my best guy friends who is currently in Kuwait serving our country and that was super special! Other than that... I did a whole lotta sleepin and laying around!

Hope you all had a good one!

Friday Favorites

It's Friday.....

Pretty much how I am feeling right at this very moment. This week seemed loooong, did it not? I hope the weekend follows suit. I have a crap ton of chores to do and I am thinking I already don't feel like it but I will get the laundry done because my bedroom floor is rivaling the 16 year old's for walking space at a premium. Bad, very bad. 

But on to good things... Favorites actually with Amanda...


I'm craving BLT Pasta salad. It's a favorite of mine for the summer months. Not eating much pasta these days but this one would definitely be worth the splurge. Who doesn't love the crisp freshness of a good BLT in the warmer weather. Full recipe here. Take this next time you need an easy dish for a gathering and I promise you will come home with an empty bowl. 

BLT Pasta Salad – Weight Watchers (2 Points)


I get to see Mr. Blake Shelton here in Atlanta in just a few weeks at the Shaky Boots Festival and I can't wait to hear him... especially this song... Sangria. Did anyone else think it was weird that Miranda didn't thank him in any of her speeches at the ACM awards last weekend??? It's just not right, you thank your spouse woman. And who dresses her?


I  don't know if I could actually do this but... I love it. So dainty and delicate. Unique. 

So discreet you would easily think it is a real bracelet! By Bicem Sinik.


I am a protein bar addict. And anything chocolate mint is totally my jam. Did you see the new Quest bar unveiled this week? Mint Chocolate Chunk... Is it weird that I get excited about these kinds of things???


Southern Charm is so good this season. So much so that I had to give you some gifs down below. I know it's really bad reality TV but I just love these South Carolinians. Thomas and his comical Senate run, Whitney and his mother Patricia (who needs her own show) and Kathryn who I am actually starting to really like. Please watch it so we can talk about it!

And then there is Shep... 35 years old and this...

Oh Thomas....

Patricia still has her butler serve her breakfast in bed. And wears maribou feather bed jackets.

And has her priorities straight. I love her. 

And it wouldn't be Friday without people falling down... and stuff.

Here let me help you...

Did he never see an escalator before?

Even with help... fail. Who thinks they can hurdle anything?

I love that the kid keeps reaching out, like she could stop a freight train.

Nailed It. Her.

31 People More Graceful Than You

And she's outta there.

Have a great weekend!

Thursty Thursday: Summer Brews

Summer is right around the corner at least here in GA. It was 80 degrees yesterday in the dirty south and I am not hating it. Maybe because I dropped a few elle bee's over the winter, maybe because I have a J O B again, maybe because summer means beer season and I am all about that. So joining the ladies for Thursty Thursday today with my two favorite summer brews. 

If you like an Arnold Palmer but dig a little beer too then this is the beer for you. Summer Shandy is a Beer/Lemonade mix and it is the bomb. Light and refreshing, it is only available March thru August so I suggest you stock up. I have become a beer snob so I am always looking for a great craft beer but they can be pricey. Leinenkugel's is tres affordable at $12.99 for a twelve... really can't go wrong. Bonus, it comes in regular cans and tall boys so it's perfect for the pool, beach and the tennis courts. If you bring glass to any summer venue I will find you and I will hunt you down... bare feet and glass don't mix. Try this for summer and you will not be disappointed!

Shiner Bock is kind of a cult classic when it comes to beer here in the south but I discovered Shiner Ruby Redbird last summer and I love it. I am a huge grapefruit fan. Who knew they made grapefruit beer??? Shiner does and it is full on Ruby Red goodness with a little kick of ginger in there. It's light and a little fruity so maybe the guys might turn their nose up but Shiner is a manly man's beer so I'm thinking even they would like it. Just don't tell them there is fruit in it.

What are your favorite summer beers?

Hopelessly Ever After

Beer me...

Humpday Confessions & Hashtags

Another round of humpday confessions & hashtags coming at you guys today. I don't know if I am coming or going right now. Feeling a little overwhelmed with the new work schedule and juggling everything at home again. Soooo.... here goes...

This is a horrible confession but... I need a 100% kid free weekend. I mean one hundo.  Now that my oldest has a job, half the time even on her Dad's weekends she winds up here with me because I have to get her to work and he can't be trusted. But... this is majorly screwing up my Amy time. I have to plan my nights around taking her and picking her up which means I am stuck and not able to plan anything that lasts more than a couple of hours. And I can't exactly entertain man friends with her in the house... ya pickin up what I'm layin down here? #notevenkidding

This makes me angry, angry that my ex douchehole still gets to fuck up my life. Now that I am back to work and feeling all kinds of badassery my rage for him is back in full force. #sendmesomezen

I confess I have been sucking at cooking lately. Like I am mostly eating things that require no cooking or thought because... my brain is tired from working. And sometimes I opt for drinking my calories. There I said it. #blameitonthealcohol

I am planning another Mother's Day tattoo (I did one last year) but I can't figure out where I want it. I have the artist and the design picked out though. I am finally going to get some work done at the legendary Live Free Tattoo by Alan Berg... as soon as I book it that is. But don't tell anyone, it's a secret.


I added one more show to my summer concert series. I couldn't resist. Now I have May, June, July & August covered. Luke Bryan is the August addition. I know this is a completely unnecessary expense but I also do not care one bit. #becausedatassdoe

Hope everyone has a killer Wednesday!
