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
