Friday Favorites!


Guess what?! It’s Friday!! Which means, A) it’s time to share some favorites because I know you love reading those #duh 🙂 B) No work for two whole days (we’re so close!) and C) It’s almost time for a margarita or glass of wine 🙂

I have some fun stuff planned for the weekend; a bridal shower via Skype, the Bachman Spring House (because I can’t miss a season!), golf and a few other things so I am ready for 3:30 to roll around!

Now, let’s get into some favorites!


I had lunch with this sweet girl yesterday! She is set to get married next month and it’s going to be so much fun!  Can’t wait to celebrate her more at her bachelorette party at the end of the month!


Warm enough weather for walks at work! It’s so nice to be able to go for a quick walk around the area when I’m in the office. I really do work in such a great location – I mean, there’s paddle boats and mini golf in the spring/summer and there’s an ice skating rink in the winter.  Realistically, I don’t do either of those things but it’s a nice thought 🙂




Why yes… yes I did!

As if I even need to mention this one again… we had tacos for dinner this week #usual and there’s just something about those little things that make me all giddy!

These banana leaf pillows from Target… need I really say more?


We are celebrating Lara tonight (the girl on the far left next to me) for her bridal shower and it’s going to be a good time!  She doesn’t live in MN so we’re skyping her in the for the gift part… two firsts for me with this… 1) Skyping in the bride for the shower (brilliant idea so she can still be celebrated!) 2) Around the clock bridal shower – I’m sure many of you have heard of this but I’d never heard of it before!

Since the couple didn’t really register for many gifts, everyone is assigned a time slot and give a gift that can be used during that time period! How fun is that?!

Their wedding is in Portugal this September (Lara’s from there!) and we’re so excited to be going! I just need to send in our RSVP still… on it!

Earlier this week, I shared a fun Book Review with all the books I read in March.  If you’re looking for some inspiration and new reading materials, check it out!


I saw this recently and it totally spoke to me.  Life hasn’t always been easy and even now, it’s a challenge some days but I’ve tried my hardest to take all my past experiences and use them to make my life and myself better.

I absolutely, 100% agree with this statement. Some days I like to blame fate but in reality, it’s about how you react and deal with events.

Well, that’s all folks! 🙂 Thanks for taking a few minutes out of your day to read along! Hope you have a fabulous Friday and weekend!

    Those banana leaf pillows at Target are so fun! I read Emily’s book last year and loved it since I was a fan of her’s during her season at the Bachelorette. Trista’s book is another good one too! I’m so jealous your friend is having a wedding in Portugal! Have a great weekend 🙂

    I love those kinds of wedding showers! My mom was very control freak about my wedding and baby showers and wouldn’t let us play any games or doing anything considered non-traditional! Blah! Super jealous of your work walks- 30 minutes to scarf down lunch and get back to kids around here leaves me with boring walks to the bathroom instead! Ha! Have a fun weekend!

    Tacos are always a good idea! Those leaf pillows are so much fun. We need new cushions for our outdoor patio furniture so bad. I used to love going for walks on my lunch break, now I find myself running around to get my errands done. I need more walks in my life. Have a great weekend!! Beautifully Candid
