Happy Friday!

happy friday

Woo Hoo!  Friday!  I am gearing up for a pretty fabulous weekend.  Minimal errands, brunch with a girlfriend and getting my hair done.  Not too shabby!  

Today, I am linking up with AprilAmanda and Della for my Friday Favorites!  Let’s jump right into them…

1. Keurig Mini.  It is safe to say that I have a pretty serious caffeine addiction.  I just added another coffee brewer to my collection this past weekend.  I have a Nespresso machine but sometimes I want regular drip coffee instead of lattes or espresso.  I had an older Keurig but it was so big that I never used it.  This little guy is perfect though!  There is no water reservoir.  You just pour in the amount you need for one cup in the top, insert your K Cup and press the brew button.  Easy peasy!

2. Kitchen Island.  I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was stalking the Crate & Barrel Belmont Island.  It was pretty expensive at $596.75.  (That is after using a 10% off coupon, too!)  


I am pretty proud to say that I didn’t buy it.  Instead I found something more reasonably priced.    Years ago I would have just bought it anyway on a credit card and justified to myself that we were getting our taxes back soon or that it was the star of the kitchen and needed to be a decent piece.  That landed us in some pretty heavy debt.  Since selling our house I am totally debt free and it is a really nice feeling.  I am trying to make more responsible financial decisions.  Thanks to the internet (how did people survive without it?) I was able to find a similar island that suits my needs probably better than the first one!  (Picture it without the heinous wheels.  I don’t plan on using them.)


The dimensions are almost identical and I like the open shelving.  The best part is that it is – wait for it – $400 cheaper than the first island!  #Boom

3.  Trump.  I am not a fan of his personally but two hilarious things involving him happened this week that gave me a good chuckle.  The first was this tweet:


That’s pretty brutal.  It’s like something straight out of Mean Girls.  I would never elect a President that operated that way but I still thought it was pretty funny.  

 The next thing is this video:

Can I just say that Jimmy Fallon’s wig looks more real than Trump’s actual hair, lol!

4. Fitbit Flex.  I mentioned last week that I discovered the health app on my iPhone and it totally opened my eyes to how few steps I was taking each day?  Well, today I took it a step further (see what I did there?) and bought a FITBIT!  I have officially drank the Kool Aid!  Do you have tips?  What do I need to know about this thing?


5. Funny.  I am going to leave you with this today:  


I just died laughing when I saw this on Insta.  I love her crazy eyes in he pic.  Hahahaha!  

Okay loves!  Have a fabulous weekend!  xo

    Adjust your stride for your Fitbit. Walk a measured distance, see how many steps you took, divide distance (in feet) by steps, and plug that number into your dashboard for most accurate number. πŸ™‚

    I saw the Trump tweet and died laughing. I mean, it totally was a Mean Girl move but it also demonstrated how he got where he is in business. Not saying that is a Presidential quality, but who on Jeb’s team dropped the ball?!?!?

    The insta picture, OH MY GOSH!

    hahah that guy in the shirt–too funny! My husband and I had a pod coffee maker but we ended up taking it back. The pods just aren’t strong enough for the size of cups of coffee that we like. And so dang expensive. Just wasn’t worth it for us πŸ™ I’m so excited about Fuller House!!! Hope you have a great weekend!

    omg @ that funny! Hilarious! I’ve had my keurig mini forever and love it– though I admit, I kind of want a nespresso too! It can be so hard not to give into big household purchases because they seem to be so much easier to justify why you need them. So glad you were able to find a different alternative to the island– the one you got looks amazing!

    You are killing it today! I LOVE that tee shirt and the Trump tweet. #evilgenius I was dying over the Fallon sketch and Avery get so excited watching it because the one week countdown is on!! Happy weekend love πŸ™‚

    $400 cheaper is so much better and I love the way that one looks! Go you!!!! Yikes, talk about crazy girlfriend in that last picture! LOL! I have the fitbit HR and it is crazy how little steps I realized I was taking during the work week on days I didn’t run. I find myself running in place while doing things such as brushing my teeth, cooking dinner, filling water from the water dispenser, waiting or my k-cup to brew, etc. I am getting my hair done tomorrow!! Yay for fresh hair! πŸ™‚ Have a great weakened!

    Yay fitbit! Head to Funktional Wearable (google it) and get some killer bracelets for it! I have the Tory in gold and silver and a Kate wrap!

    Your little kitchen cart is adorable!
