Friday Faves

You're never too old to grow.:

Happy Friday!!! Guess what? I have only one more Whole30 Friday to go! I am just a teeny bit excited about getting through the next 11 days. Yes, eleven left! Anyway it was a good week, had a few challenges and got through them without incident. Went out to lunch with co-workers on Wednesday and had no problems navigating the menu and staying compliant. It was cold, rainy and miserable here all week and we might even get a little snow today which would be ok by me. Nothing major planned this weekend... finding it easier to just lay low and stay focused so that's what I'm gonna do! But first gonna link up with Amanda for some favorite things...


I've always been a Jillian fan. Even when I hated her I secretly liked that she was such a hard ass to the biggest loser contestants. I always felt like, having struggled with my own weight, that the tough love approach was the right one. So her reality show premiered this week and I loved it. Personality wise I share some traits with her. Now if I could just get myself to do the work and get her body too. Watch it, I especially liked seeing the Mom side of her. And she has perfect hair.

I don't know if I will ever redo my current room but if I do in this house... this is perfection to me. Muted, subtle and so clean and chic. Gimme.

Black Bedroom Room reveal, done on a budget to create a high end look! #bedroom #darkrooms #moody:


I signed up for Amazon Prime in December and my 30 day trial was up last weekend so I got charged $99 for my one year subscription. Except they were offering a Golden Globes discount last weekend at the special price of $73 a year. So of course I immediately emailed them Monday morning and they without hesitation refunded me $26 and earned a customer for life. Good Job Amazon Prime.


Winter is magic time for my hair because without humidty I can do anything with it. I am currently working on the flat iron beachy waves technique. I love this tutorial and the look. I'll post pics when I actually can get it right all around my head.


This could be a nice edition to my next online dating profile...
The year of new hobbies:
A great out of office message...

This IT guy.

Ummm... yeah... NOPE.

no way 15 LOL, nope (17 photos)

Stare at the center of the gif for 20-40 seconds and then look at your hand. I'm easily amused.

Stare at the center (while the gif is playing) for 20 to 40 seconds, then look at your hand - That's so cool

Or when you see something that you want to order and it's not Prime cause now only Prime is acceptable.

2015 was the year of waiting:

So. Much. Yes.
The year of small talk:

    Have a great weekend! Melanie | Blog: Toots + Dill

  5. That's an awesome deal for Amazon Prime! Those hobbies just summed up my entire life. And that snake! Every time I see it I'm all NOPE NOPE NOPE. I don't like snakes to begin with & snakes in the water are worse.

  6. Hahahahaha that season meme!!!! And I didnt know Jillian had her own show! I will have to check it out. ELEVEN MORE DAYS!!! AHHHH!!!! Have a great weekend!

  7. Ummmmm yeah so the screen and my hand are still spinning. Anyways......I am pretty horrified with that lake picture. Like where was that taken so I never ever go there.

  8. What. The. Fuck...I had no idea Amazon Prime had discounts! I have been paying $99 like a sap for years!! I need to remember this for next year and cancel or throw a fit or something!
    Also, I have been searching for a good bedroom inspiration and I think I'm going to steal that entire's just perfection!

  9. How did I miss you on Friday?!? Whole 30 - only 9 days to go now! Woot! I need to check out Jillian - I kind of have a lady crush on her. And I'm with you on the bedroom - gorgeous!! Prime is the shit. I can't live without it, and i used to think it was ridiculous to pay that price. Not anymore. I want it when I want it . . . not in a week.
