"First Day of Spring" Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Morning and happy Friday, party people. Oh and HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRIIIIIIIIIIIIIING! Currently my area is dealing with snow and rain, blah, but hey, it's no longer winter, wooooooofreakinghoo. We had gorgeous weather earlier this week and I am so excited for warmer temperatures. It's time to pack away the sweaters and boots and bust out the silk tops and flips. Who's with me?

I'm so excited for the weekend, y'all. It's the first weekend in awhile where Le Husband and I aren't traveling, so that means lots of relax and recuperation time. We're also on our last weekend of Whole30, can I get an AMEN?! Honestly, it hasn't been nearly as bad as I expected, but weekends really are the toughie for me. Looking forward to Tuesday, for sure ;)! I'm also excited for Sunday, because I'm FINALLY going to see Cinderella with the ladies in my family. Originally I was super jazzed to see the movie, but then got a bit MEH with the lack of enthusiasm my suggestion received. Happily everyone rethought their blahs and we're all ready to enjoy some 'Cinderelly' time. Have any of y'all see it? What are your thoughts?

Alright, let's get down with the Friday Faves, okay?

Favorite Picture of the Week: I mean, can Ryan Reynolds be any more hilarious? I love that he created this himself and posted it with his hilarious caption. Today, sir, you have won the Internet.

 Favorite Pin of the Week: Don't look for doom and gloom in the clouds, look for the sun!

Favorite TV show of the Week: Y'all does anyone watch Cold Justice?!?! It airs on TNT and oh my word is it a fascinating show. I've started binge watching it and I cannot get enough. Kelly and Yolanda are bad@$$ investigators that work hard to close cold cases all over the nation. Watching them piece together a case is so intriguing and I love the end of the episodes when an arrest is made. Keep rocking, ladies.

Favorite links of the week:

Minimalism is something I've wanted to try and this post made me think even more about it.

The simple way to clear your clutter. Something I really need to get a move on and do ASAP.

Since avocados have become a go to snack, this link on how to store and ripen them provided some great info. 

Tori Kelly KILLS IT covering Seal's "Crazy".

I love that Kate Middleton continues to surprise us with her down to earth fashion. She wore a $63 ASOS dress to one of her many appearences, you go, princess!

With March Madness gripping the nation, it was fun to take a look back at the past Cinderella stories that captured our hearts [I'm looking at you George Mason and VCU]. I'm all about a Cinderellas story, just don't knock off UK!!!!

Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend. Do you have anything fun planned?!?!?

Hope you enjoy your relaxing weekend and get some sunshine soon. It's supposed to hit 60 here this weekend and I can't wait. I'm so ready to ditch my boots for flops :)

Cold Justice airs here in Australia on the CI (Crime & Investigation) Network. I'm a sucker for any unsolved murder shows. Some girls watch HGTV; I watch CI.

Always love your Friday posts! I will have to check out that minimalist link. While I could never fully adapt that lifestyle, I like to be mindful of it!

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

Hahaha Ryan Reynold's is so awesome! That picture is so good! And the dam gif... that was me when I went to the Hoover Dam. I think the tour guide wanted to kill me. LOL! Happy Friday!

Yoga...Vodka seriously made me laugh out loud!!! Girl I am with you on Spring...we deserve hot weather stat!!! I can only imagine what a fun guy Ryan Reynolds is...like I want to be his friend in real life lol!! Happy Friday! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

Stop can she be anymore perfect?!?!?!? I want her shiny locks. I love that she wore an affordable dress while doing charity work. Nothing like sporting a designer dress and talking to people about the struggles of the day. Ryan Reynolds is the man!

Elle Sees said...

ha! i love that picture! i tried to convince my ex to go as bri and jt for halloween in that costume and he didn't get it. it's so bad it's good!

JumpingJE said...

Happy Cinderella weekend and first day of Spring!! :)

Julia said...

I want to see Cinderella, it's supposed to be really good! LOL at the Ryan Reynolds meme! I saw an episode of that show Cold Justice and it really is fascinating how they are able to figure everything out! Love shows like that!

Mree said...

Spring has yet to get the memo to show up here. Cold and snowy here today. I so want to see Cinderella. Now, if I can find the time. Have a fab weekend. Happy Spring.

Kristen said...

I am going to see Cinderella on Sunday!!!! so excited!!!!
that minimalism post was very interesting. i don't know if i could be a legit minimalist but i am definitely trying to live a more minimal life, and i agree with most of what that article said (those things don't impress me, though ok i wouldn't mind more $$ lol) so what's holding me back?!
and the clutter one - woah. woah. seriously though, we totally hoard stuff.
well that ASOS dress is most likely sold the shit out by now hahaha but damn Kate stop being so fabulous!

Mrs. Southern Mama said...

That is so "normal" of Kate to wear such an inexpensive dress. Just another reason that I love her!

Shayna @ The Fancy Yancey said...

Woo Hoo for Spring!!! Makes me sooo excited & I'm definitely ready for flip flop weather!! I want to see Cinderella too but, have a feeling I'll have to wait until it comes out of video & rent it. Hope y'all have so much fun & enjoy it!!

Courtney B said...

Yay for a relaxing weekend at home!! Enjoy Cinderella! I am dying to go but thanks to a precious 2 year old- I'll be waiting for it to come out on DVD, ha ha!
You always find the best stuff to post! Happy weekend, my friend!! xoxo

Jen said...

I can't believe it's the first day of Spring already!! Time is flying by and it's crazy. Enjoy your relaxing weekend. :)

Erin said...

Rebecca Jo said...

I think Ryan Reynolds is every bit of perfection of a man... looks AND humor? Yes!

Those goats BE crazyyyyy!!!!

MakeMeUpMia said...

Those pics are hilarious, the goats! Love the pinterest pin too :) Happy Friday!

Jamie said...

Nothing much planned this weekend. Maybe a trip to Lowes to buy some plants. It's time for some life in my garden!

Brettni @ Bringing Up Brumfields said...

Goats. Hahahahaha!!

Shelby | Recent Somethings said...

Goats wins it for the day but Ryan and Blake are a close second haha. Happy weekend, girl! Enjoy it :)

Jessica said...

Kate Middleton for the win again. Kate: 1,654,794. World: 0. LOVE her!!! People that don't love her be cray cray. What's not to love? I have a feeling she's having a girl this time around, and just can't wait to find out!

Also love me some Ryan Reynolds. He and Blake seem to have a very real, low-key relationship, and I really hope it lasts!

And finally, yay for spring and always looking for sunshine in life! It's the only way to get by!:) Happy Friday!

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

Erin LFF said...

I'm hoping to see Cinderella SOON! I cannot wait! :) I feel like all week I've still been trying to recover from our trip haha, so I'm looking forward to lots of relaxing and basketball tonight ;)

Christina Sotherden said...

Love that colorful welcome to spring! Enjoy that relax and low key time! Haha that denim picture kills me; it’s SO funny that Ryan did that himself. Hoping we both get some warmer temperatures soon!

Maddie said...

Ryan & Blake! Gotta love it!!! Happy friday and spring!

Laynah said...

Laughing so hard right now! Ahh I started laughing at the denim outfit caption, then you just kept it going. So funny.

Amanda {Kids and Cabernet} said...

Those funnies were hysterical- they had me cracking up! Happy weekend love!

B @ The Sequin Notebook said...

I need that clutter article in my life since I can't seem to get inspired to do my spring cleaning just yet! Hope you're having a great weekend!

Kathy@RealTalk said...

LOL at the macklemore shirt because that's ME hahaha!

we took our 6yr old to see cinderella and it was ok..she loved it but for the adults, it's not bad. a bit high on the cheese factor but it's cinderella so you can overlook that part. what did surprise me was when i saw prince charming! i said out loud HEY THAT'S ROBERT STARK!! lol

Lux Ganzon said...

Enjoy spring. I was entertained looking at these photos you posted. Especially the pilot outside the plane. The horror! Haha.

Kay R. said...

Ryan Reynolds is hilarious! Love him. Those funnies girl haha

PS. glad its spring for you finally and that you get a relaxing non-travelling weeekend. Hope you're enjoying it!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

I've never heard of Cold Justice but it totally sounds like something that would be right up my alley!

Cari said...

Im so ready for warmer temps too!!!!

I love that pin! So true too. I am hoping to take Breanna to see Cinderella. She keeps asking when we are going to the big movies!

Ashley said...

OMMGGG those GOATS!! Bahahaha!!!

Queen In Between said...

Thanks for that avocado link....so once I put my very unripe avocados under a glass dome (I know they have a real name but I don't know it..ha) on a pedestal for decoration since they weren't quite ready to eat and holy crap those suckers ripened almost over night! I have shared this info with some random strangers at the grocery store...now I'm a little worried it's releasing some strange toxic gas after reading the article saying they recommend "no other way" of ripening...haha

I really liked your location. I am also thinking to celebrate my son's birthday party like this. That is why I am wondering if I can also hire a same New York city party bar for the birthday celebrations with friend and family.
