Friday Favorites

Do you guys remember when I used to do these posts every week!?  I can’t even imagine making that kind of commitment at this point in time, but I thought it would be fun to do one since I haven’t in so long!

Favorite Moment:
This was a very quiet week and I’m not mad about it.  I was able to go straight home after work every day and enjoy my house, make yummy dinners, binge watch Netflix, and even do a little working out.  I did start Lupron injections (I know, how can daily injections be exciting?) yesterday so we are one step closer to our FET!  Our target transfer date is 10/29!

Favorite Workout:
Speaking of doing a little working out, I’ve been horrible since our last cycle failed.  My eating habits have been really bad and I have had 0 motivation to do any form of physical activity except for walking.  Luckily my Fitbit has been keeping me moving, but it’s definitely not enough.  I started back up with Jillian Michaels Yoga Melt and then added the 7 Minute Workout that Biana had mentioned a few months ago to the routine as well.  Also, you guys need to try this 3 minute workout if you like to whip & nae nae.

Favorite Blog Post:
Again on the topic of working out, I loved this post from Kristen at See You in a Porridge!  I seriously made me feel so much better about how unmotivated I have been lately.  It definitely sounds to me like we all have the struggle more often than not!  Plus, she totally killed it with the GIFs as usual!

 Favorite Recipe:
Along with increasing my physical activity, I am trying to really be better about eating.  My eating habits aren’t terrible but there’s definitely room for improvement.  This week I made ravs (tortellini) and spinach in “alfredo” sauce but I used cauliflower (and my husband had no idea and said it was awesome) as the base of my sauce.  I’ve made this many times before but this time it turned out the best.  It’s a great way to add vegetables to your meals without people really knowing.  I like this recipe from Detoxinista but I add about a cup or so of cheese to mine!

Favorite Purchase:
Oh the purchasing!  I’ve got about 5 shipping notification emails in my inbox right now which means that my spending is out of control once again.  I’m supposed to be working on paying down my debt and instead I get sucked in to Hollister’s One Day Only 50% off denim and free shipping on over $50 so of course you’re going to buy 2 pairs sale!  I ended up with a new pair of jeggings and a new pair of high rise flares!  I’m so excited that flares are coming back in full force this fall.  I’ve been wearing the shit out of mine.  Here are a few of my favorite looks so far: 

Favorite thing I’m looking forward to:
This crazy weekend!  Not only is it the annual family camp out on Joe’s mom’s side, Joe’s sister and her husband are also renewing their vows on Saturday in an outdoor ceremony at a local horse ranch.  Tonight Frankie and I will make the hour drive to family camp and stay with my bestie & SIL, Jodie and her family for the night.  We will head back tomorrow morning to get ready for the vow renewal.  It’s going to be a chilly night but it will be so fun!


  1. That recipe looks so good--I'm always up for trying healthier versions of favorites!

  2. The 29th will be here before you know it!!!

  3. omg that image of the girl is HILARIOUS! ha, happy friday friend!

  4. Love the flares, but I just feel like they look so strange on me!! I probably just need to get used to seeing them again, but I can't find a good pair! Ohhhh the joyysss :)

  5. We are going to be freezing our asses of at the Color Run this weekend! Hope you have a blast!

  6. I'm loving high rise too. They make me look much slimmer!
    Hope you've had a good weekend!

  7. That reminds me... I need a good pair of jeans too. If only I could fit into hollister clothes! ha! Old Navy will have to do. Love this post!

  8. I'm with you, I haven't done a Friday Favorites post in so long! That dinner you made sounds and looks delish. I would have never thought you could make an "alfredo" with cauliflower! Yum! Yay for the injections and getting back into the workout routine! :)

  9. thanks for the shout out girl! seriously though, so glad i am not alone in the lack of motivation lately. i've been meaning to check out that 7 minute workout, but... so lazy. lol. i have never tried cauliflower alfredo, but i love alfredo so i really should!

  10. woo hoo, 10/29!! that is a blessed day for us, so here's to 10/29 for y'all too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
