You guys. I literally had ninety percent of this post typed up and ready to go when my toe hit the power button on the extension cord and unexpectedly shut my entire computer down.
<Enter panic mode, extreme pouting, and second thoughts of trying again.>
Somehow, all of my windows re-opened and saved except my drafts here. Wonderful! While I could choose to let this get me down, I’m going to ignore the
huge and extremely annoying inconvenience of re-typing the entire thing and just get to the good stuff. Because it is Friday after all… am I right?
To celebrate, here are a handful of things I am loving this week. I encourage you to also show me your #FFavorites by linking up at the bottom and/or playing along in the comments section. TGIF!
Friday Favorites #12: Week of 11/22
• the ambiance of a lit Christmas tree at night.
Yes, the decorations are up already! And I am loving every bit of it.
Something about a lit Christmas tree in a dark living room makes me want to stay in my sweats, curl up with a blanket, a good holiday movie, the animals, and sip on hot cocoa every chance I get. Don’t mind if I do!
• this article about Michigander’s slang and their accents.
Because people from home (Florida) think I talk like a Canadian with my new “somewhat nasally” o‘s and a‘s.
Because people from here (Michigan) think I over-pronounce everything and say my i‘s extremely southern.
Because they still can’t figure out what the heck Scott is saying half the time. (<- Arkansas boy!) 😉
• Chinchilly nail polish by Essie.
I went into Walgreens for a greeting card and came out with this.
I have been obsessed with grays this year and already have my eyes set on a few more shades for future purchases. Actually, this set of four looks right up my alley!
• Amy’s Light & Lean Bowls
I have been a fan of Amy’s Kitchen products (<- Non-GMO brand!) for about a year now. There isn’t anything I haven’t cared for so far, and this week I tried the Light & Lean Quinoa & Black Bean with Butternut Squash & Chard bowl and didn’t miss the meat one bit.
It tastes way better than it looks, swear!
I’ll be sure to buy a variety of bowls in the future and share my thoughts.
• Degree Clinical Strength Deodorant
This might be too much information, but I’m just going to go there.
I have been using Secret Platinum deodorant ever since I can remember. For some reason or another, it hasn’t seemed to do the trick lately and I have caught myself re-applying around five times a day… including at least two times during games which seems a bit ridiculous.
After consulting a friend, I tried out her Degree Clinical Strength suggestion and haven’t turned back since!
• True Religion skinny jeans
We went into the True Religion outlet store to find a good pair of jeans for Scott and walked out with these for me too.
Whoops! After the past few years of buying my jeans strictly from Forever 21, we both fell in love with the silver stitching on the back and felt I deserved them.
Definitely one of my favorite purchases of this season so far.
• the return of the Starbucks red holiday cups!
Skinny peppermint mocha, get in my belly!
• O.N.E. coconut water
To hydrate, (… you know) when I’m not all hyped up on pumpkin spice lattes and holiday coffees.
And, last but certainly not least…
• this popping up on my newsfeed the other day.
I’m sorry. #dying
