Friday Faves

Top of the mornin’ to ya!

When did I turn Irish? Oh, I don’t know … maybe when my hair decided it’d be fun to start turning red EVEN THOUGH I DON’T WANT IT TO.

Moving on.

I’m in an awesome mood today (minus the red hair tangent above) and I thought I’d tell you about some of my Friday Faves today.

1) My new job and coworkers.

Seriously, I’ve never felt more at home, more loved and more excited to come to work in my entire life. I’ve never worked somewhere where people honestly want to build me up and help me do well. It’s a breath of fresh air and I’m loving it! Plus, going to lots of fun events is just the topper on the cake.

2) Pinterest.

Seriously. OMG I LOVE PINTEREST. Now if I could afford ANYTHING on my boards, that would be awesome. Come follow me so I can follow you and we can have ALL THE PINTEREST FUNS!


3) Football.

YAYYYYY!!! Packer season is back and so is St. Norbert football, which I’m loving. Love, love, love. I mean, my job includes holding tailgates at some of the games. I can’t complain.


4) Boots. Leggings. Tights. Scarves. 

Now, let’s tread lightly with this one – I don’t want to be a hypocrite. We all know I love warm weather and beaches and all that jazz, but there’s something to be said about fall/autumn time … especially the fashion! I’m loving that I can wear boots again and I’ve been taking full advantage. Oooh, and I don’t mind that I get to wear leggings and tights and scarves. YES, PLEASE!


5) Chipotle.

Duh. I don’t even know why I put this on here – it’s a mandatory.

6) Blogs and Vlogs.

I’m honestly going to try to start a YouTube channel. Any of you readers (MOM) out there interested in hearing me blabbling via video sometimes? Here are some of my favorite bloggers and channels.
The Modern Tulip (she’s seriously the prettiest lady!)
The Other Juliette (I’m constantly giggling at her posts.)
I Wear Yoga Pants to Work (She always makes me laugh and I’m excited to hear about Colorado!)
Olives ‘n’ Wine (She’s just a staple favorite and I’m excited to hear about Florida!)
Zoella (Amazing YouTuber in the UK.)
Gabby (So funny and real.)
Jess (This girl is such an inspiration and I love watching her videos! If I make videos, I might try to make mine like hers and kick myself in the butt to get in shape!)
Essiebutton (Such a fun channel!)
I guarantee you I’m missing some. I subscribe to like 100 blogs and 100 YouTube Channels (not kidding).

7) Family.

My mom, dad and sister all dropped everything yesterday to help me get my broken car up north (again) and even gave me a car to use in the meantime. Which means, my dad has to drive his broken down truck to work every day, just so I have a car. They’re the best.

8) Michelle’s Quote.

My best friend (Michelle) living in Charleston put this quote on my Facebook wall when my car broke down and I was trying not to be negative about it.
“Just because you’re given a cactus doesn’t mean you have to sit on it.”
It made me laugh so hard, but it’s so true!

9) My Workout Motivation.

I have been killing it this week at the gym! I’ve actually been liking going, which is odd for me. I took Body Pump on Wednesday and I’m hooked. I’m proud of myself for kicking my butt into gear.

10) This Gif. 


I know, I post it like once every six months, but it still just makes me TOO HAPPY!

Maybe next week I’ll have some more “specific” favorites, but these are a great start for me. 🙂 Happy Friday to you! What are your Friday Faves?
