Friday Faves

Apparently last Friday some of the early morning readers were not fans of the Exorcist gif being the first thing they saw at the top of the post so, let me apologize in advance and give you this….

yeah Ryan Gosling removing his shirt... that'll make your Friday! This is for you Pamela!  No more scary gifs!

Okay, who else's blogger looks like this?!?

This post is all sorts of random today... Today is my baseline ultrasound appointment followed by my 2nd acupuncture appointment, we are having Olive Garden for my co-workers 20th anniversary and then I get to take the afternoon off so it should be a good day.

Favorite Moment:
Construction is moving along fabulously now.  I can’t believe how quick it’s going up.  This week it really started taking the shape of a house. 

 Least Favorite Moment:
If you follow me on Instagram then you saw this photo of my car.  I was already having a bad day, and it got progressively worse after I worked out.  I was on my way home and a lady took a left hand turn… into the side of my car.  We are both OK, she had insurance and felt horrible, it’s just a pain in the ass!

Favorite Workout:
I hit Curves pretty hard this week.  This is my first week back since July, I went 3 days, and probably would've went all 5 if I didn't have commitments after work yesterday and today.

Favorite Pin:
pretty sure I need to make these right meow!

Favorite Quote:
Robin Williams’ passing really made this quote speak to me even more than it already has in the past.  I wanted to touch on this for just a brief minute because he was truly a legend and one of my favorite actors since childhood because of movies like Aladdin and The Birdcage.  His suicide is real proof of this quote; that we really don’t know the battles people are fighting deep down.  One of the funniest, most well-known comedians in the world was battling depression.  You would never think someone with such a happy demeanor who made others laugh for a living could be in such a dark place.  The severity of his depression  was so bad that he decided to take his own life.  I can’t even fathom making a decision like that.  My heart goes out to his entire family and everyone whose lives were touched by him.

Favorite thing I’m looking forward to:
My bestie is hosting a Stock the Bar party on Saturday for a couple friends of ours that are getting married.  It should be a good time.  We’re doing a beer and wine tasting and cooking out!  Can’t wait to get my drink on after the week I've had!

Favorite Funnies:

RIP Robin Williams!
