Friday Faves

Friday, January 29, 2016

How do you like to go up in a swing,  Up in the air so blue?  Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing  Ever a child can do!:

Ummm hey. It's Friday. The last Friday in January. The last friday in my Whole30. The last Friday of the first month of the new year. The last friday I can say... ugh, another weekend with no cocktails. It's been a good month and I like to think that it will set the tone for my 2016. Last year started out in a similar fashion and after a few initial bumps in the road it did steadily get better so, here's hoping. Let's finish off the month with a favorites round up with the lovely Amanda because that is just how we do here. I have some good stuff today too... leh go!!!!


So as I mentioned that my 2 year old CHI flat iron took a dirt nap recently so I looked to my new lover Amazon Prime for a replacement. I settled on this super cheap but highly rated Infiniti Pro  by Conair for $29.97. I have been using it for a week and it is eleventy billion times hotter than my Chi maybe ever was. Love it! Oh and also, a few days after I got it I noticed the price dropped to $22.48. I immediately emailed Prime and they issued me a credit with in the hour. Have I mentioned how much I love Prime?


A good friend of mine is having some surgery next month and another one of her friends set up a Meal Train for her on this website I have never heard of the site but it basically does all the work for you. In the South it is customary for new moms, a death in the family, illness of any kind that friends and neighbors bring meals for the person or family in need. Lord help us no one should have to cook in times of trouble! This website makes it easy to send out the invites via email or social media, provide all the details about food likes, allergies, preferences, number of people eating, location, dates, times, etc. There is an interactive calendar that lets you pick your date and see what others are making so you don't duplicate. You can even add online gift cards and arrange and order local delivery if you don't cook. This is genius!


It's tattoo time again cause it's almost Valentine's Day, an annual tradition of mine. Unlucky in love? Get inked for V-Day. I like this one. "and"

I don't even know what I am doing for Super Bowl but if I am invited anywhere to bring anything this is what I am making. Slow Cooker Chili Cheese Dog Dip from my favorite food blog Host the Toast. Detroit is somewhat famous for chili cheese dogs so this is one of those near and dear to my heart foods that I will splurge on occasionally just because it reminds me of home. And I freaking love it.

Slow Cooker Chili Cheese Dog Dip. This from-scratch dip is loaded with chili cheese dog flavor and really simple to make. Keep it warm in the slow cooker and serve it for the Super Bowl! |


I bought my 17 year old a S'well bottle for Christmas and she loooooves it so when I saw that the Bikini Pink was on sale for V-Day I had to order my own. S'well bottles are beautifully crafted and composed of non-leaching, non-toxic 18/8 stainless steel that keep cold drinks cold for 24 hours and hot drinks hot for 12. I got the biggun... the 25 oz. because it holds an entire bottle of wine. Duh. Check it out here, they are pricy so if you like pink get it on sale. I really, really want this one too.


Because who doesn't love a wedge bootie...Nine West Abrazzo Wedge Booties are on their way to me at 70% off the original price. I know I said I was on a January spending freeze but... shoes on sale. No seriously, I need more shoes for work. I am lazy for work and I will wear the same basic one or two pairs of shoes/boots/sandals all season long. Until they wear out. Since the zipper broke on my 2 year old black suede boots and they are falling apart, like pretty woman safety pin falling apart, I can justify this purchase for work. And bonus, I am sure they will look super cute with jeans and leggings on the weekends too. Get ready to see them on repeat on my feet! Can't wait to get them. By the way I am a Nine West junkie and if you would like $10 off your next pair please use my referral code and get you some too. Click on this.

Well, I hope by the time you read this that I will have purchased my first concert tickets of 2016. The gorgeous Mr. keith Urban will be in Atlanta on June 11, tickets go on sale today and I shall be there.


I fell down a rabbit hole of prank gifs. I love this shit.

Get your coworkers good.


It's the best way to wake up in the morning.

One word... Tits

"Run, run, run!" This one actually might be kind of dangerous.

Hey Mom.

This is how you terrify your parents.

Because people falling down = funny.

This is how you know your costume is terrifying.

Not really sure what's happening here but the guy throwing  the paper towels...

Zombies in the hardware store.

And that's all I got for today. Have a great weekend!
Have a great weekend! No te olvides de decirles a los tuyos cuanto los quieres, tal vez con un detalle de


  1. There aren't many tattoos that I like, but that one is really cute! Is it bad that I can see one of your kids trying to scare you like that girl did to her mom!! Happy Friday! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. That straightener might have to fall into my Amazon cart on accident - I don't know that mine gets super hot. And the S'Well bottles are cool - and way cheaper than the Yeti tumblers. I'm using glass so I can add oils but stainless works too! Enjoy the weekend! Stay strong!

  3. What is the swell bottle? Aluminum? It's not plastic, right? My glass bottles keep breaking and if it's on sale I'm in. LOL

  4. The gifs had me cracking up! I love the tradition of getting a tattoo on Valentine's Day! I get one once a year too but never on a set date.

  5. I just discovered meal train too! What a great idea!

    Those gifs had me in tears!
