Friday Faves

Bonjour mon amies! Joyeux vendredi!

Fun fact: I took six years of French and have used that skill exactly not at all. Actually, I can’t say that. It does come in handy when I’m trying to read the back of that fancy shampoo or perfume bottle. Which happens exactly not at all because who buys fancy shampoo and perfume? Not this girl (although maybe I should start–it’d give me a chance to put that French to good use).

But I digress. How was your week? Any fun plans for the weekend?

Tonight I’m going out to dinner with some friends to celebrate my baby sister’s birthday. I refuse to believe that she’s 24 because that means I’m 28 and I can’t be that old. Seriously though. How and when did that happen?! Good gravy. I used to roll my eyes when my grandpa and grandma would tell me to enjoy every last minute, every single second because time only speeds up as you get older. Gran and gramps, I think I owe you a “You were right” and some pitted prunes because you definitely hit the nail on the preverbal head with that one.

Other than that, I’ve got the world weekend at my fingertips. I’m hoping to maybe catch some rays by the pool tomorrow (if it ever stops raining) and I REALLY want to see the new Jurassic Park movie. Wicked dinosaurs + Chris Pratt = yes please. I’m also having a cookout with the fam on Sunday. Anyone else think that grilled food just tastes so much better than regular food? It’s probably one of my favorite things about summer. And none of that electric grill crap; I’m all about that bass charcoal.

Whatever you’ve got up your sleeve this weekend, I hope you have a great one! But before you dive into the fun, be sure to check out my funky finds from around the web and more in this week’s edition of Friday Faves!

Favorite Flick: Like I mentioned earlier, I am DYING to see the new Jurassic World! Another fun fact: I was ob.sessed with the first Jurassic Park. So much so that for most of my childhood, I had this dream of becoming a paleontologist. I also reenacted the Jello scene on the regular. I’m hoping that the fourth Jurassic is mucho better than the last three because ugh.

Favorite splurge: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake. I love the looks of this dense and fudgy peanut butter cake. YUM!


Favorite Daily Dose of Sheeran: It’s no secret that I have the biggest, hugest (I’ve just decided that needs to be a word), most epic crush on Ed Sheeran. He’s extremely talented, humble, grounded, has the most beautiful accent and that red hair. Oh that red hair. In an interview he gave recently, he opened up about his past struggles with stuttering and showed us all how to own our own weirdness and be proud of who we are.


Favorite Flashback: 32 Pictures That Will Give You Intense Elementary School Flashbacks. “Holy cowing” over this roundup! Seriously shouted YES to every single one. Especially these stamp markers and especially #14. #2 is gave me instant anxiety.


Favorite pooch: Baby Frenchie! JUST TOO MUCH CUTENESS!


Favorite ‘Q: Chicken Beer Sliders. Saucy, scrumptious, and perfect for a summer BBQ.


Favorite LOL: Betty White decided to prank-call James Corden from the Late-Late Show and it was all of the amazing. Still hard-core laughing.

Favorite view. Are you smiling? Me too. 🙂


Favorite fashion: Nellore Blouse. Loving this sweet and flowy blouse, right? Can I please look as cool as this girl does when I wear it too? Pleaseandthankyou.


Favorite bite: S’Mores Dip. No campfire required. Love this!



Thoughts on a Thursday


Dirt makes for THE best dessert.

I give up. On nail polish, that is. A mere three minutes after applying and already chip-O-mania.

I totally caught a guy picking his nose today. I was stopped at a red light and looked over to find the owner of one white Toyota Prius mining for gold. He tried pulling the “I’m not picking, I’m scratching” bit on me but I knew. You bet your nostrils I knew.

Speaking of picking your shnoz…do any of you remember reading this classic? When I was little, this was the best form of birth, err, picking control that I could have ever had. A sabber-toothed snail who snacks on fingers? No way, Hosea!

There are only 17 days until the Brewers spring training season starts…but who’s counting?

I am celebrating by watching Field of Dreams…for the fourth time this week. I guess I kind of like it. And I may or may not have a slight crush on Kevin Kostner. And James Earl Jones–what can I say? That voice. Oh that voice.

I was contacted by a publisher who wants to actually really truly honest-to-goodly publish my book!!!! Cue Sally Field “They like me! They really like me!” I can’t tell you how amazing and exciting this all is. Butterflies in the stomach? More like freakin’ pterodactyls! But the uber awesome and friendly ones like in Land Before Time, not Jurassic Park. Details to come 🙂

Today I found three quarters with their heads up. Does that mean that I get 75X as much good luck?

Today is Friday-Eve.

Which means tomorrow is Friday.

T-G- 🙂
