Friday is here! Did it creep up on anyone else this week?! Not that I'm complaining one bit, but this week I just couldn't get enough hours in a day.
Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day! Anything fun and exciting planned? I have some surprises for the boy and am going to lunch with my dad! Can't wait! I think a lot of us get caught up in the lovey dovey couple stuff we see in ads and on TV but Valentine's Day doesn't have to be just for that significant other...it can be for that special anyone, hence lunch with my dad!
This friday I am trying something a little different and fun! I am linking up with Heather and Friday Favorites. She started this to celebrate the end of the week by sharing some favorite highlights from the week. So, here we go!
An oldie but goodie! This past week I received not one, but two mixed cd's from a friend. It was so absolutely sweet of her to take the time to do so. One was a Winter Workout playlist and the other was a Winter Chill playlist. I'm sure you can assume the type of songs each one had on it, but hey why not tell you anyway.. Winter Workout was full of all of her favorite pump up songs of the season while Winter Chill was jam packed with those songs which are good for any part of the day to help you unwind. I have been listening to the Winter Chill CD non-stop in my car and am slightly obsessed!
>>I may possibly sing along too!<<
--32oz Refillable Bottle
This bottle is by my side all day everyday. It is the RefillReuse Premium Chug Bottle by Rubbermaid. The bottle style itself is so convenient and sturdy. One of the noteworthy perks of this bottle is that even being 32oz's it fits into standard cup holders. Most all bottles I have ever had over 20oz have never fit into the car cup holder which was always frustrating! I love 32oz bottles because I drink more water without feeling like I am guzzling it down.
--Cards Against Humanity
Have any of you played this game?? I was just recently introduced to it and played it again on saturday night!! I seriously get an ab workout playing because I never stop laughing. If you have never played before you are probably wondering what this game is; people describe it as a more mature version of Apples to Apples. The description for the game is "Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends." It's a riot!
I recently have had a new infatuation with long socks! My favorite way to wear them is over leggings with the top showing over my boots. Boot socks are super cute but sometimes there aren't a lot of colors to choose from or they may run a little pricey. One tip for you ladies is to check out mens dress socks. I went shopping the other day and decided to pop into T.J Maxx and Marshalls and of course with my new love for long socks wanted to check out the selection of boot socks. They did not have too many but looking at the wall my eyes crossed over the women's dress socks (which are usually a little shorter) and I got an idea to take a stroll over the men's section where I found long socks and a good deal! 4 pair for $9.99! How cute are they?!
Totally rocking these Valentine's Day themed pair today!
Family is my everything but family time recently hasn't been abundant as I would like. My brother is currently in med school and not located in Michigan. This past weekend though he was able to come home and it was awesome! It's crazy how much we packed in the weekend. I was sad when it was over and he left but I cherish every minute we have when we are together!
