Happy Weekend!


Happy Friday!  I have been looking forward to this weekend for a while.  Taylor and I are heading out to Long Island to hang with our friends.  My bestie just moved into a new house she has been renovating and I cant wait to see the finished product!  It is also my nephew’s birthday party and we got him the cutest bike.  I think he is going to be a pretty happy little guy!

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

1. Fitbit Bracelet Options.  I told you guys last week that I bought myself a Fitbit Flex.  I have to say that after using it for a few days I can understand why people love them.  It has definitely been motivating me to walk more to ensure that I reach my goal of 10k steps per day.  I did a little Googling to see if I could find a more stylish bracelet option and I am in LOVE with this one!  My birthday is coming up and it is definitely making the list!


2.  Blogger Lunch Date.  Leigh Ann from The Sequin Notebook just started working a few blocks over from me so we were able to meet up the other day for fun lunch at Naples 45.  I love when I get to see her!  We have to start doing it more often!

3.  Sparkly Rose Gold Nailpolishes.  I have seen a few shades on Pinterest lately that I am OBSESSED with.  I need to find something similar in gel.  Does anyone have a gorgeous rose gold shade that they can recommend?

4. Chrissy Teigen.  I love her.  I think she is so hilarious and I love how open she is about her struggles with IVF and infertility.  She recently disclosed that she and Jon chose to implant a girl embryo and a bunch of crazies on the internet attacked her.  I think maybe they were assuming she just chucked all the male embryos (instead of saving them for future implantation).  Either way, I love how she shut them down. 


 Why on Earth would someone think it is appropriate to say this to a stranger about such a personal topic and in such a hateful and awful way?  People like this lady above just blow my mind.  It makes me wonder what she is like in real life.  Does she speak to people she actually knows like this or does she save it for celebrities on Twitter because she doesn’t think they have feelings?   I don’t get it.

5. Baked Honey Marinated Cod.  I love seafood but I don’t make it that much.  One of the big things that holds me back from cooking fish is that I think that it should be purchased fresh and made the same day.  That is limiting (especially when I am at work all day).  I have been trying to eat a bit healthier so last Sunday I had some free time and made tilapia for dinner.  We all LOVED it and it was nice and healthy.  It was so good that it inspired me to make more fresh fish.  How delicious does this cod look?  This will definitely be on the menu at my house soon!


Alright loves, have a fabulous weekend and I will see you back here on Monday!  xo

    Woohoo, Friday! Those glitter nail polishes are fabulous, love all the pretty tones. CT is hilarious and so great at shutting down the trolls. She gets so much hate it baffles me, people are so crazy! Happy Friday!

    Ugh, people are so mean, I love what Chrissy said about it. How fun to have a blogger lunch, I will be so excited to meet some bloggers in person someday. Y’all look gorgeous! Have a glorious time in Long Island, I hope you and Taylor have such a good time!!

    I watch FabLife and I love Chrissy. I saw the episode when she talked about her struggle to get pregnant too. It is so sad that people would say such horrible things to her because of a choice that she and her husband made. Moving on.. Those rose gold polishes are gorgeous, and so fun that you met up with one of the Sequin Notebook gals! πŸ™‚ I hope that you have wonderful weekend!! πŸ™‚

    Love that rose gold polish!! So fun that you had a lunch with one of the Sequin Notebook gals. πŸ™‚ Chrissy Teigen is awesome and I love her. I watch FabLife and saw the episode when she talked about her struggle to get pregnant. It makes me sad that people would be so mean to her. I mean she made a decision with her husband and that’s her business. I also want to buy her cookbook!! Have a wonderful weekend!! πŸ™‚

    I love that you can have blogger lunch dates. I think I now need to find a rose gold nail polish. Chrissy Teigen’s response was perfect. There are a lot of people who struggle with infertility and telling them to just adopt is hurtful. I think I need to make that fish dish soon!

    Ohh loving those polishes! OPI’s worth a pretty penne, might be a little more on the gold side vs rose gold, but it’s one of my recent favorites. We have the same issue with fish– trying to eat more of it, but shopping and then cooking it on the same day is hard! Have a great weekend!

    I do not get why people say rude things, either! Blows my mind. We love fish so I need to try that cod recipe! I never know how to cook it! Hope you have a fun weekend!

  9. Amy @ The Crazy Wise Woman

    You might have just convinced me to get a fitbit with that bracelet. I just don’t want to wear the black rubber thing every day but that one is awesome! Love anything rose gold, definitely looking for that nail polish this weekend. How fun that you had a blogger date!

    I was recently thinking of getting some cod so that recipe will be very helpful. I really like rose gold but it sorta washes out with my skin tone so I think the strike up cosmo would be good, and it’s pretty.
    Have fun on your trip! I’m not going anywhere but I am still looking forward to quitting time today.

    Ahhh love that you and Leigh Ann were able to have lunch!!! Having a weekly lunch date with a girlfriend can really make your week so much better…you girls need to make that a thing. And I love the way she shut down that tweet. People are so ugly and ridiculous for no reason these days. If you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all. It is none of that girls business where her kids come from! Love that polish!!!
