Good morning! It’s Friday!
I feel like I didn’t really get to check in with you guys yesterday. I meant to pop in later in the afternoon, but I chose to get some other pressing things done instead. By dinner time, I had finally sorted through three email boxes and felt like a weight was instantly lifted off of my shoulders. Do any of you have multiple email accounts that you continuously check?
I never check one of them that is connected to my maiden name, but I still get the emails sent to my phone. The second is a personal email and the third is for the blog. I actually have a fourth (a personal g-mail) and a fifth (for the new blog!) too. What… too much? They’re all accounted for, but yet, still ridiculous and overwhelming at times. I really need to do more junk mail regulating and unsubscribing. Anyone else?
Anyways, let’s roll right into this week’s installment of Friday Favorites! Every week, I share what I have been loving and invite you to share your favorites in the comments section. While you’re at it (bloggers), link up your own favorites post using the blue InLinkz button below!
Friday Favorites #73: Week of 1/23
• Pistons vs. Magic game
There were several things about this week’s home game that made me smile. First off, I had amazing company in the stands.
The two beauties on the left are both former Orlando Magic Dancers who also attended the reunion earlier this year! The entire group of girls are in town working the Detroit Auto Show, so we stole them away on their night off to enjoy an NBA game. The Pistons just so happened to be playing the Magic, so it was the perfect game to grab tickets to.
(Megan, Angela, me)
The girls had a blast. It was a first Pistons game for all of them and a very first NBA game for one! To celebrate the occasion, Scott made sure my Orlando friends were decked out in Pistons gear and even got HOOPER in on a few post-game photos.
It was so fun!
Speaking of the Pistons, I have been wearing the team logo a lot this week. More specifically, I have been wearing these warm faux fur lined team earmuffs a lot this week.
I love earmuffs. They provide the perfect amount of warmth to your head/ears when you are sporting a high bun or don’t want to mess up your hair. I seriously wear them several times a week. The brand is ’47 and they sell the same look for several different sports and teams. Here is a non-sports version!
Okay, okay. As someone who complains about the cold and snow a lot, I have to admit that it can be beautiful to look at.
Most of our trees might be bare in the neighborhood, but the ones that remain full look like snow-sprinkled Christmas trees.
Now that I have a solid 4WD Jeep to take me around town, I’m not as afraid to drive in the snow as I used to be. Both the temperature and snowfall levels have been significantly tamer than last year (thank goodness!), so it’s been a lot more tolerable for this Florida native lately. Tolerable and beautiful, what do ya know.
• derm skincare
I briefly mentioned this before, but I have to give a big shout out to the skin care line I have been completely obsessed with since last summer.
Don’t laugh (okay, fine… you can), but I totally got wrapped into an infomercial showcasing Derm skincare one random night when I was home alone and unable to sleep at 2 a.m. I ended up watching the commercial for thirty minutes (what?!) and bought the entire line right then and there.
There was a 30-Day money-back guarantee, so I really had nothing to lose. As it turns out, I really, really, really love everything in it. The price isn’t cheap, but it is comparable to other quality skincare lines.
I have replaced my supply twice, just put in my order for the next shipment yesterday, and even got Scott hooked on some of the products. Oh, and that Fill & Freeze some of you asked me about? It’s AMAZING and does wonders for wrinkles, y’all! Just sayin’.

Even though half of them don’t load (annoying), I love me some good puns. #dorkalert
• spatula set
I received this snapping spatula and kitchen utensils set from Santa.
Scott said that if he had to guess, Santa probably got it a Target or Bed, Bath & Beyond.
I wasn’t sure about the bright colors at first, but I really like how everything snaps together and is easily accessible at all times. It’s nice to have more room in our pull out drawers and has found a nice home on our kitchen counter.
Nice work, Santa. (wink!)
One hundred percent accurate.
• Sander’s Chocolate
Have you guys ever been to a Sanders store? We have two located pretty close to us which is definitely a good and bad thing. Scott and I stopped into one after lunch in Birmingham on Monday and couldn’t help but to split a gourmet hot chocolate.
Of course I had to browse around while they were making it…
Potato chips? chocolate? Umm… YES. They also had bags of chocolate covered potato chips, in case you were wondering. Now excuse me while I leave to go get some.
Santa and our friends were good to us this year. We received this mustache wine stopper as a present from the Alexes (my best friend Alex is engaged to an Alex!) and we have already put it to great use.
She got it at Bed, Bath & Beyond for under $10. Fun, right?

I have multiple emails too—including one for my maiden name that I would totally get ride of except all of my Google bookmarks are tied to it. I’ve tried to find a way to merge them, but they don’t make it easy! Have a great weekend Heather!
Right??? So annoying. That’s exactly what is going on with my two gmail accounts right now. Ahh!

Love the earmuffs and the spatulas! So colorful!
Glad to hear I’m not the only one juggling email boxes. Sometimes you just can’t help it!
LOVE that shirt!! I actually just listened to a podcast on how to control your email inbox this week by Michael Hyatt… He had some great advice! https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/this-is-your-life-michael/id502414581?mt=2&i=163417060 (it’s #005) Happy Friday!!!
Wow, I definitely need to give that a listen. Thanks so much for sharing!
Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment
My emails are out of control as well. I have one I stopped getting on my phone so now when I log-in it completely overwhelms me. I have to dedicate some time to getting a better system in place. Love the t-shirt and will check out that article. Puns are fun. 🙂 Happy Friday!
I should probably do that too. I only really need the updated accounts after all. Happy Weekend, Lauren!
That mustache wine stopper is great, haha! Happy Friday!
Thanks, I love it too! Happy Friday!
Kelly Runs for Food
Ha! I need that Netflix shirt. I’m in the middle of a major Sons of Anarchy binge so it perfectly describes my life right now.
I’ve never seen that show! Maybe that’s a good thing… I can get addicted to Netflix pretty quickly. 😉
Chelsea @ Raw N' Toned
Omg yes to that shirt!! I need it ASAP!! And yay for ear muffs!! I’ve always wanted ear muffs, they come in handy for so many things!! Happy Friday 🙂

That shirt is awesome! I usually am pretty good at keeping up with emails & all my accounts actually, I am a bit of a weirdo. haha 🙂
I wish I was that disciplined!
Pretty Little Grub
I have so many email accounts too. It’s crazy sometimes how much time I spend checking them all!
Glad to hear I’m not the only one! 😉
Ashley @ A Lady Goes West
So many things to comment on. Have you tried unroll.me to help you clean our your inboxes? That shirt — LOVE it. Also, Gnarly Head Pinot Noir is pretty good, I’ve had that one a few times. And the ear muffs? So cute. Go Warriors!! 🙂
I actually haven’t, thanks for that tip! I loved that wine too, I will definitely be buying it in the future! Hehe Go… NBA 😉
I love your spatula set! The colors are adorable and it’s so nice how organized they are! That stuff can always be such a mess in the drawers, so this would be a perfect solution!
Rachel @ Blonde with a Chanse
I love your earmuffs!! I need to look into Derm products! My skin has been crazy ever since I had my little girl and I can’t get anything to work for me.
I really didn’t expect to love it as much as I do!
That wine stopper…amazing!! I also love your friends shirt with the anchors on it (I think that’s what they are!)…I would seriously wear a top like that…maybe everyday haha. Have a great weekend!!
Aw, I love her shirt too! It looked so comfy and cute. Happy Weekend!
LOVE that shirt and mustache wine stopper !!Happy Friday!
Nicole @ Squash on Squash
Chocolate covered potato chips?! I mean I don’t even love potato chips but if they’re chocolate covered, well then… that’s a different story! I think I might need to invest in some ear muffs as well because these cold bouts in New Jersey are seriously freezing my poor ears off 🙁
Haha, YES they are that amazing! 🙂 You should totally rock earmuffs.
Christina @ The Beautiful Balance
Loving those ear muffs! I’ve been looking for cute ear muffs because beanies ruin my updo haha!
Haha, I know the struggle. Happy Weekend!
Totally feel ya on the email….in fact this past week I finally remembered when I first set up my blog 6 months ago I also set up an email different from the one my regular comments come into…I had 6 emails! eek! Have a great weekend!
Do you happen to know if that Derm Skincare set is more of a “natural” or “organic” line? With no parabens, weird additives…etc.? I’m trying to look into more options for good-for-you skincare lines since I usually care about what I put INTO my body, I should probably care about what I put ON my body. And don’t worry, I’m a total food pun nerd! Any food pun kills me. Have a great weekend!
I’m not sure about being natural or organic, but I do know they don’t use parabens, sulfates, artificial colors… etc. and they don’t test on animals. Here are more details! http://www.beachbody.com/product/beauty/derm-exclusive/anti-aging-skin-care-at-home.do?e=287415
Thanks a bunch, Heather!
Im super excited to link up for my first Friday Favorites! 🙂 and I seriously love the 30 min workout- def doing that little gem this week! Thanks so much!!
Awesome, Danielle! Welcome to the party and I hope you enjoy the workout! 🙂
This ridiculous pricing, paired with telemarketing to verify the rates is important. Nowadays, we are grateful for that, and there somecertainly some companies that offer insurance against the expense associated with fixing it, you can get incentives in the process of finding a legitimate claim. Remember, you are 100% deductible yetlow cost car insurance. When you see on your own “No Claims Discount” or something distracted you, but in general, allowing them to deliver all the top insurance company means youunlawful. Not only are you willing to help with legal defense which includes price quoting for vehicles rented by the insurance company will want to check out whether you can torequest. Most vehicle owners opt for the first time car owner. Collision coverage usually provides coverage not only find the money to find an online form and you get renters tobroker is to log a claim. However, you can lower your premium. Not only is it also offers good driver with two eyes closed.
I have 4 boys, 3 of them are under 3. They love to get dirty of course, but I am also lucky that they LOVE their veggies and fruits. Even brussel sprouts! My husband and I have talked of starting a garden for a while now and Love this. My mom told me she had a raised garden when I was little and it seems to be the way to go. Also, my best friend has her garden and raves about it all the time.
And that’s what makes Griffith’s betrayal so horrible. He meant everything to the band of the hawk, and even more so to Gats and Casca. Yet, even after sacrificing all of them he decided to torture his most loyal companions in the worst possible wayâ€¦ Possibly to destroy anything that may have been left of his original self.
We are in the market for a new car for me and with all these dang kids I have, I told the husband I want a Tahoe or some other giant SUV, Michigan winters mean I need it, right? 😉
Totally feel you on the multiple emails, drives me crazy sometimes, but it’s necessary.
Definitely! I never wanted a SUV until I moved up here. I just feel better about driving in the snow!
