Friday Favorites #5

Hi friends! It’s FriYAY!!!!! The weekend is here!! Woooohoooo! Do you have any fun plans this weekend? I’m not sure what my weekend will look like, but I’m sure it will be like any other one around here! I’m just looking forward to relaxing 😉

Before jumping into this week’s round up of Friday Favorites, I just wanted to share a little update on my injured foot. If you read previous posts, you know I fell down the stairs on Tuesday, and went to Urgent Care on Wednesday. My foot is feeling better and I can finally walk a little bit more normal without looking like I have a huge limp going on. Luckily, I am able to stand on it but it still kind of hurts and feels weird. I am so very thankful that I didn’t break anything or didn’t sprain my ankle or anything like that. I guess I just have to be more careful when walking down the stairs since I am a huge blondie. Anyways, I had mentioned yesterday that I wasn’t too sure if subbing full day today was the right move for my foot, so after speaking with faculty at the school I’ve been at all week, I decided to call and explain to them what was going on. Because of that, I have the day off from subbing and will be working at the store all day. Which is probably better, so that way my foot can be ALLLLL BETTTERRRR for the weekend!

Alright, enough of the foot talk! Now let’s change gears and get this show on the road!

Friday Favorites!!

  • My husband


Honestly, I think he should always be on my Friday favorites posts, because he certainly is my favorite! But really, he is the best ever. On Wednesday after work, ya know my foot wasn’t really feeling too great and I just couldn’t wait to get on the couch and put my foot up. We went to the grocery store together, got take out (yes, I get a salad from a pizza place in town EVERY SINGLE DAY, even though I have salad stuff here, I get it there because it tastes so good. Don’t judge 😉 And then I come home and spruce it up with lots of fruit and all the yumminess!), and then I realized once getting home that I was OUT of my favorite beyond favorite dressing ever that you can only buy at Target. I was pretty bummed that I would have a salad without dressing (have no fear, I poured juice from the freshly cut pineapple we just got all over my salad), and knowing I wouldn’t be able to get to Target until Thursday night, this man went to Target for me and got two bottles of my delicious dressing and let me stay home to rest!!! He deserves a medal!!!

And I can’t mention that dressing without talking about it as a favorite…


I mean, this is literally THE BEST dressing on the planet, and it doesn’t give you a gross aftertaste like most dressings do, which is why I love it so much! Okay, maybe you might not like it as much as me, but I pretty much make my own version of Paner’s Strawberry Poppyseed Salad everyday at home with ALLLLL THE FRUIT! As I mentioned above, you can only find this baby at Target, but let me tell you, if you are like me and love your salads with all the fruit, when you do buy this, you will not want to buy any other dressing ever again. You’re welcome!


Okay, in all honesty, I’ve been straightening my hair for about 10 years now and I’ve had ONE straightener my whole hair straightening life, which was obviously amazing because it lasted that long, but it wasn’t working too well and my hair started to look worse (think: super super frizzy and puffy) after I had straightened it with the old one and would have to go over it at least 3 times to make it look presentable. So I figured it was time for a new one! I had asked my hair dresser what her favorite was, and she recommended this beauty!!! I am OBSESSED with this straightener!! It makes my hair feel super soft, look not so puffy and actually straight, and I only have to straighten my hair once!!! I think this straightener would be awesome for curling your hair too, which I am going to have to try that out and let you all know how that goes! If you are in the market for a new straightener, you will NOT be disappointed if you buy this!! It is AMAZE-BALLS!


I am super excited to be watching Christmas movies all the way until Christmas Day!!! (Well, to be honest, I watch Christmas movies all year long, but let’s just keep that a little secret) I just LOVE Hallmark movies and they are even better when it’s Christmas themed!! 🙂

  • Being a substitute in Gio’s school

It has been SO fun for me to be in Gio’s school, and even better to be in his classroom!! Yesterday I was in the classroom across the hall from his, because that teacher was out for the day, but I still had lots of fun and could peek in to say hi to him and give him big hugs! And, to tell you the truth, it is the best feeling ever to be back in a school that I love!! It is a HUGE bonus that I get to bring this cutie home after the morning is over and have lots of fun laughing and being silly in the car.

…And on days I don’t sub, I get to bring him to school. Which is always my FAVORITE way to start the day off!! img_2448


Have a FABULOUS Friday and a GREAT weekend, loves!!! Xoxo ♥♥
