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?
