Friday Favorites

7 Things.



HORRAY! It’s friday!
I’ve rounded up some of my favorite things I’m wanting to share lately in lieu of the weekend!

1. The Seven things you’re not supposed to talk about.
One of my latest listens from This American life. Basically this woman shares her list of things you should never talk about because they are ALWAYS boring (i.e. How you slept) and then the radio show tries to find stories that prove her wrong. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

2. These sandals are perfection.

3. The last week or so I’ve been able to function and instead of only having intense aversions I’ve enjoyed some cravings instead! With Christian I craved all kinds of unhealthy foods like hot wings, orange chicken and soda. THIS time it’s anything fresh and healthy. I haven’t been able to really stomach anything sugary or deep fried whatsoever. I don’t know if I’ve ever gone this long without soda! It makes me feel so proud of myself but then I realize it has nothing to do with self control, my body is forcing me to do it…but still I’m glad to not be scarfing hot wings and ranch every night I suppose:)
Anywaaaaay….this list my friend Jamielyn made of healthy snacks is a REALLY useful go to. I printed mine out for quick reference.

4. Speaking of fresh veggies…this corn looks soooooooo tasty.

5. This quote.


It’s so true. In fact I think success is contagious!

6. I found this post about some long lost styles while looking in my archives the other day and it gave me a laugh:)

7. I know I said I was going to wait until Monday to announce the winner of the Glamorous Photo contest but, why wait all weekend!?
The Winner of the most votes was Maria in The Midas Touch! Congrats Maria! You’re timeless!
And the winner of the raffle is Emily Morse! YAY! So excited for you girl! Shoot me an email ([email protected]) with your  shimpping address, shade and blush color:)

Have a fantastic weekend!

    I am completely guilty of wearing the platformed flip flops, but in my defense I am only just 5ft and I was 18, I needed a little extra height.

    Glad you are starting to feel a little better. The first trimester is the worst! I am 25 weeks along and I haven’t craved anything super terrible for me, I absolutely can not get enough fresh vegetables, especially baby carrots. My weirdest craving has been for milk, I hardly ever drank it before and now we have to keep a gallon of it in the house all of the time. I love the healthy snack list, but remember to not deny your body a craving, if you want something that is a little bit unhealthy, like ice cream, eat it, just don’t eat a gallon of it everyday.

    I read somewhere that cravings are the body’s way of saying you need more of certain vitamins/ minerals. Pregnancy cravings are different though, I know haha. They can get crazy sometimes. Good to hear that eating right wouldn’t be such a problem for you, as you actually WANT to do it. lol Have a great weekend!

    giiiiiiiirl, those sandals. LOVE. BUT, i was actually just looking for a similar pair and stumbled upon these bad boys. yes, they’re from Payless, that long forgotten island of occasionally awesome steals:
    A good way to save a few bucks so you can spend more on Armani foundation. 😉

    Great list! Fun way to start the weekend. Also, corn is grain not a veggie. 😉
