Friday Favorites


Friday, June 17, 2016

It's Friday again and my vacation starts in just a few short hours. I can't wait. We aren't leaving until Monday, but I won't be seeing work all next week, so vacation starts now.

I am linking up with Karli, April and Erica.

One. Orange is the New Black came out this morning and I can't wait to watch it. I have watched every episode and usually within a weekend. And this weekend will be no different. Oh wait, I have toddlers on the move now. I hope to get through it all by Monday afternoon when we head out to Graeagle. Are you excited for Season 4? Side note: I remember when I watched the first episode. I was at the gym and the lesbian scene came on and I am sure everyone behind me (I was on the rotating steps and had treadmills behind me) could see it. I was a little embarrassed.

Two. Vacation is here which means I have some posts scheduled for next week, but I won't be around much. I will go into the small town near my cabin and I have wifi in the main lodge, so I can and will respond to emails and comments. But it might not be in a timely manner. Relaxation here I come.

Three. I think I am late to the game, but I just ordered Chrissy Teigan's cookbook Cravings. Everything looks amazing in it and I can't wait to try some new recipes. Anyone else have her cookbook? Love it? Hate it? Recommend any recipes to cook first?

Four. I received my Strange Bikini last weekend I am in love. It fits perfectly and she customized it for this mommy. So it has more coverage in the back than a full cheeky version and it has a higher front (by 1/2 inch) to make sure it covers my c-section scar. It has been amazing working with Ali on my bikini. I love the colors and the braiding she did with it. So beautiful.

Front (Love the braiding details)
Back

I can't wait to show it to you all when it is on because the photos don't do it justice. It is so beautiful!

Five. Don't forget to enter to win yourself a beautiful Jord wooden watch. I am absolutely in love with mine and you can have your own by entering HERE for a chance to win a $75 gift card to use at their online store. And even if you don't win, they will send you a $20 e-certificate that you can put towards a watch. A total win.

    1. I blow through OITNB and House of Cards so fast. I watch it at the gym and after the girls go to bed and just forget about all other tv. Ha. But I have taken awhile to get through Gilmore Girls. I am on Season 4 and LOVE it. Enjoy your weekend!

    1. I need vacation. Last night I just got super mad and worked up over something dumb and vacation is just what the husband ordered. Ha. It's not weird to want to see it on because then you can see all the cute details she added. I am not sure if I have the body for a bikini, but f it. Gotta flaunt it. Have a good weekend Emily!

    1. I love it so much and want to wear it. I am hoping to go to the beach tomorrow (weather willing) and finally wear it. Is it bad that I just want to watch OITNB from my desk? Ha.

    1. I have been waiting forever for it to come back. I even checked if they released it early (last night) like they did with House of Cards. We will be finishing it this weekend (hopefully). Have a great weekend!

    Love that bathing suit - I think I would be a tangled mess but I'm a hot mess :)

    1. Thank you. It looks like it would be a tangled mess, but the three pieces all come together on each side and the material is thick that it is really hard to tangle. Hope you have a great weekend!

  13. So excited for OITNB! I probably won't be able to watch it for like two weeks, but still! It's vacation week for me too! We're going to my mom's for the weekend, flying out Sunday, and flying back next Sunday. Your bikini is SO pretty! I love the colors, the braiding, and the ruching on the back of the bottoms!

  14. I'm excited for Orange is the New Black too! That's so funny about being at the gym and the lesbian scene going on! That reminds me of a time I was on a flight and was reading 50 Shades of Grey & I looked next to me and this sweet older lady was reading the Bible!

    Have a wonderful vacation! xo, Kristina

  15. Let us know what you think of the cookbook! I was flipping through it at Barnes&Noble but didn't wanna shell out the money until I heard someone I trust rave about it.

    The bikini is so cute! Worth the wait for sure.
