Hey there cool people and happy Friday! How have your weeks been? Is there anything you are looking forward to this weekend? My week has been pretty go with the flow and I think the weekend is going to follow suit. I have some stuff I want to get done that has been forever on my to-do list, but besides that I honestly have no set plans. The only thing on my calendar is practice Sunday morning. I'm interested to see how this (almost) schedule free weekend turns out because it has been a while!
Alright, alright...time to get down to business, Friday favorites coming your way!
Billy tagged me in this picture on Instagram over the weekend and I literally laughed out loud when I opened it up. It is so accurately me. I have the hardest time waking up in the morning. Once I get up and going I'm set, but the snooze button is definitely a close companion of mine for at least 3 presses. Why is it that the bed always seems/feels the most comfortable and the warmest right when the alarm rings.
Ending A Search:
For the longest time I have been in search for a 32 oz water bottle that would also fit into my cup holder. I've had plenty to 32 oz bottles, but when I put them in the seat next to me I almost end up with some sort of a least 5 times out of 10. Plus when they are so large and bulky they are just a pain to carry around. I prefer 32 oz because it helps me stay on track to drink enough water throughout the day without having to think about it or count. Earlier this week my mom came across this Contigo 30 oz water bottle and picked it up for me. Finally, thanks to her, my search has come to an end!
Warmth & Sunshine:
I'm usually not one to join in on the weather post bandwagons, however after the frigid temperatures we've been experiencing when I walked out of work on Monday to sunshine and almost 50 degrees I couldn't help it. I came up with a cleaver - or so I thought - hashtag calling myself out for doing so.
While I was out and about yesterday I passed by Tropical Smoothie and decided to make a quick stop in. I don't spend money on smoothies like this that often with being able to make them at home for much cheaper, but every now and again it's a nice treat! I got the Acai Berry Blast + Energizer.
If you happened to stop by to read my post yesterday you would of noticed I mentioned that Wednesday was the 5 year anniversary of my grandma's passing. Well, tomato soup was one of her favorite quick dishes to put together and my family and I never let this week go by without making it special in her memory. Knowing I wasn't going to be home until around 11pm on Wednesday night, my dad made a batch of it for dinner on Tuesday and a container came with me for lunch on Wednesday.
Last night my sorority held a dinner for us alumni to get together with some of the active sisters. I was really excited when they announced that date and time about a month back because I saw I was going to be able to attend. So far all of the events that they have held for alumni I haven't been able to go to. We went to a local Applebee's and I was surprised when I looked at the menu to see a ton of changes. I decided to try a new option they have available for appetizers - mix and match any 2 or 3. Since I was having a hard time deciding I went for the option of 3; sriracha shrimp, salsa verde shredded brisket nachos, and the chicken quesadilla. All was delicious! I would have to say the sriracha shrimp was my favorite. It was great to hang out with my sisters, some I already knew and some I had just met.
I'm actually wearing these for the first time today! My mom picked these up for me on clearance for a steal deal. I can't remember how much, but I'm pretty positive they were less than $15. They can be worn up to look like a regular high top or be rolled down to show the inside fur. Just too cute!
Oh hey there Coco, would you like to be in the picture too?
What is on your Friday Favorites list this week?!
