Friday Favorites + Link Up Announcement!

Happy Friday! :) Although this begins the period of "But it's not a Friday for me because I work weekends not too" I'm still happy to have a weekend ahead of us. Linking up with Amanda for a quick recap of my faves this week!

Favorite Recipe: Shelby's poppy-seed chicken. It's getting added to my next day of freezer cooking, that is for sure. It sounds like the perfect comfort food for fall ;)

Favorite Funny: Jared and I made an evening trip out to WalMart this week and as always, the people watching was phenomenal. I only wish we'd run into this gal! O.M.G.

And you know me... I always want a bargain! ;)

Favorite Workout: Jared and I have finally settled into a routine at the gym and I love it. A couple days a week we're dedicating to lifting weights, a couple times it's strictly cardio and I'm still attempting that 30 day challenge as well. I feel like I've turned a corner with working out. I've went through ups and downs for way too long, but now I'm pushing just a little bit each day. Inch by inch I'm getting better, getting stronger and making less mistakes. I'm actually starting to look forward to going to the gym after work. That's not something I thought I'd ever experience!
Sweaty selfies & pictures of my first 1/2 marathon -- whatever motivation it takes!


Favorite NEWS: Football Friday is baaaaack! :)

Get your jerseys on. Get your face paint out. Crack open your beverage of choice. It's FOOTBALL SEASON!!! I love, love LOVE how many football-lovin' gals I've met in the blogworld. Regardless of who you're cheering for, it's fun to get pumped about the upcoming season, swap tailgate recipes or even talk a little trash when needed ;) So what better way to round up all the super-fans out there than a Football link-up?

Football Friday will be August 22nd! You can link up ANYTHING football related but here are some ideas to get you started. Write a whole post on one them, all of them, post your favorite football-fashion, do whatever you want! Just link up anything football related and you're in.

Tell us what colors you'll be bleeding this fall. What team are you rooting for?

Who's your biggest rival? What team would you never be caught dead rooting for?

Show us your favorite team gear! Is it a cute, sparkly top from Victoria's Secret? Or a throwback jersey you can't part with?

How do you watch your games? Are you there in the flesh week after week? Or are you the one hosting a big get together in front of the biggest TV you can find?

If you've got tailgating food or party food... you better be sharing those recipes. I mean it.

How's football a bigger part of your life? A good football story? Favorite moment in time? Maybe you got engaged on a football field? :) Like I said, anything goes! Football season starts now :)

  2. I love the Football Friday! And the people you can find at Walmart my oh my...I'll have to see if I still have a picture I took one time. It was a bigger lady in a fishnet like shirt with a kid who had no shoes on... Congrats on getting back into a routine! I'm hoping that I can start going back to the gym/do some classes next week that'll get me back in workout mode.

  6. Walmart people watching is always fun, it's hard to do here though. Walmart is either empty or packed full of newly arrived tourists, I got caught in the newly arrive tourist rush last weekend and I will NEVER do it again.

  25. Sooooo excited to hear about Football Friday!! I don't normally post on Friday-Sun... BUT I may have to start making an exception because well anyone who knows me knows I am a football junkie!! I actually thought about you the other day as I was driving to VA for a work thing and saw someone with a bunch of Bengals stuff on the car.
