There Aren't Enough Fridays in a Week

Morning and happy Friday, pretty girls! This week kind of flew by with everything I've had going on, but I am still excited to get to Friday fun day. Or in my case, Friday food day. Today is my WHOLE30 CELEBRATORY meal and I am sooooooooo looking forward to my feast. I'm meeting a dear friend of mine at this amazing new contemporary American bistro tonight and dinner time can't get here fast enough. Fingers crossed I don't make myself sick reintroducing so many different foods at once [not recommended by Whole30], but I think I'll be okay since I had no issues before I did the program. FYI, I'm almost done with my recap for y'all, so if you have any questions you want me to answer next week leave them in the comments.

Alright, let's get today started with some favorites. I suggest playing *this* song to get in the Friday mood! It's been on repeat for me all week since I heard it at Body Pump. #happygetafteritbeat

Favorite Food Lyrics of the Week: When you've been without dairy for 30 days, a cheese song kind of makes your day. #ilovetheoriginalandnowlovethisversion #cheese #howarepeoplesocreative

Favorite Purchase of the Week: I BOOKED MY FLIGHT TO SEE LYNN AND BABY EVELYN!!! I am sooooooooooo stinking excited to see my BOFF in April [March is the one month we haven't seen each other since December, crazy] and I can't WAIT to snuggle sweet lil Evie. #justafewmoreweeks #boffandbabyreunion

Favorite Quote of the Week:We all hustle, so we might as well whistle. #canyoublowmywhistle #wrongsongoops

Eight realities of being a female athlete. #b00bsweat #yes10pmislate #bigstronglegs

I watched the dance mashup over and over this week. You know, whenever I needed to smile.

Excuse my ignorance...and I know I can google this, but then I wouldn't be allowing you to laugh at my ignorance...but what is a "BOFF"?

Happy Friday!

I love when you post all of the quote pictures. They crack me up. I literally had to put my hand over my mouth a few times because I still have 2 sleeping babies and I didn't want to wake them up. Love the bathing suit and cake one. Ha ha! Happy Friday!

Yay for the big celebratory meal, can't wait to hear what you picked to have! Loved the video about Julie Andrews (I love her!) and I can't believe that she didn't like singing "I Have Confidence"..its such a fun song in the movie! Have a great weekend!

Shelby @ Making Waves said...

Baha! I love the "Like a good neighbor, stay over there." My dad hated neighbors, and I can feel myself becoming the same way! But I don't want to be!

Enjoy your big meal and all the cheeses!!

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

Haha I love that cheese lyric! Yup, that's going to be my new favorite song! Yay for booking your flight to go see your friend and her baby! How fun!! Enjoy your celebratory meal tonight!

being a total geek, i laughed way too hard at the incorrect username/password one LOLOLOLOL.

thanks for sharing that article re: female athletes. i really can't stand it that others pick apart a woman's body ("she's too muscular", "her legs are too big" etc) yet they never say anything about a man's body like that....unless it's about skipping leg day because everyone knows you should never skip leg day LOL.



Laura Marie Keenan said...

Ooh enjoy your feasting tonight!!! Also I need to read that post to moms. I always struggle with having a public blog. And in fact, I woke up to my first super nasty comment this morning. I'm still debating how to handle it...

Illegally Blonde said...

These all crack me up. The Royal Ballet? swoon! See you in one month!!! And wow the bump has grown since that pic!

Elise @ Cheers Yall said...

Thanks for making me laugh so much this morning!!!! :)

Elle Sees said...

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

ok I thought I was dying at the cheese one that I clearly had to sing through and then...I saw the neighbor grumpy cat one that I also had to sing hahahaha makes my day!!

Jess Scott said...

There are never enough SATURDAYS in a week!! Although, Friday brings this great aura with it. ;) I hope you have a great weekend!

Cat W said...

The cheese son! I love it! Thanks for sharing this morning!

Leslie Lukens Martin said...

So exciting that you get to come see Lynn and meet Baby Evelyn! She's going to be here so soon! Have a fabulous weekend!

Jen said...

If only every day was a Friday that would be amazing!

Courtney B said...

Enjoy your dinner tonight!! I was totally thinking before reading what you said that I hope you don't get sick ;)
YAY for booking that flight! So exciting! There's nothing better than newborn snuggles!
I just skimmed that article real quick and I can't wait to go back and read it in depth! I don't know any way of mothering besides alllll the internet and social media, but thankfully I don't get sucked into social media too much and I feel like I'm pretty grounded as a mom and don't let the comparison game rob me of my joy. I also don't read books or articles as to avoid beating myself up for the way I choose to handle certain situations with Mia.... it's all about instinct and following Mia's cues in this house :) You'll be a great mommy someday!

Tori G said...

Haha love that cheese pic! lol. Enjoy your dinner and happy friday!

Sarah O said...

That funnie about neighbors, that's us. Our neighbors are nice, but weird. I have officially watched movie dance scenes mashup three times now and I can't promise I won't watch it a few more today. LOVE!

Mary said...

hahaha that cheese graphic is everything.

Also, you look fabulous in that dress! Where did you get it? Enjoy your weekend!

Rebecca Jo said...

I know that's meant to be funny, but my step daughter totally named her one son LUKE for that exact reason - her husband really wanted to be able to say, "I'm your father" ... mercy...

Queen In Between said...

25 years since PW...really?? How in the world could that be?!! And holy hell Richard Gere looks old..oh my. But Hector...for real...exactly the same...good genes. Thanks for sharing!

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

Lol at the cheese and cake memes so dead on! In my experience it's best to reintroduce the foods slowly, and not go buck-wild or your tummy will not be happy. Start easing it in today, and by Sunday you should be good to go :)

Happy Friday gurlie <3

Emily said...

Have fun at dinner tonight and the enjoy the weekend! That's awesome that you get to see your BOFF again and meet the baby!! Btw what does the O in BOFF stand for? lol

Cory (playdates and prescriptions) said...

Hooray for your celebratory meal!!!
And double hooray for booking that flight. Have a great wknd!

Jessica said...

I'm so excited that you're going to see Lynn and Evie! You'll have to give them both big squeezes for me (and Vivi) when you see them!:)

And your memes today were AWESOME! Laughing out loud til I thought I'd pee, ha! Especially the grumpy cat one and the cake one. So me. Ha!

Happy Friday!

Tabitha Lee said...
