Happy FRIDAY to us!
1. Can I just say how much I adore my husband??
He is the most thoughtful guy in the world….here’s why.
So the other night I got upset about something stupid that had nothing to do with Jared (hello hormones), and decided to just go to bed kinda frustrated. I said goodnight & all that jazz to him, but still.
The next morning I got up and got ready & came to my desk (Jared leaves before I get up most mornings), and there sitting on my desk chair was a note & wrapped gift from Jared.
I immediately burst into tears. Naturally.
He got me what I’ve been wanting for MONTHS now.
he is a keeper, that is for sure. <3
oh, and when I texted him about it/thanking him, etc., he told me I deserved it.
No bud, not really. I don’t even deserve you sometimes, but thanks for thinking that! 😉
2. Pizza, how I love thee.
I am sure you’ve heard me wax poetic about pizza before, but dannnnggg I love it.
Homemade. From a restaurant. Delivered. Eaten out.
Love it all.
3. The perks of being a blogger….
Companies sometimes find YOU & then are like ‘let’s send her free stuff!’ Haha. COOL.
This showed up on my doorstep:
The ups guy was like uhhhh “yogurt?” hah. yes. I got yogurt sent to my door.
4. I am loving Microsoft Excel.
Yep, that sounds super nerdy. But alas, I’ve been doing a project for work that uses Excel more than I’ve ever used it, and to be honest? It’s pretty darn cool. Very smart program.
My brother in law (major nerd –he’s a computer engineer/genius, but he’s awesome), actually swears by excel. He looooovvees it.
5. I also have been lovin’ on chips & salsa lately.
It’s a classic & it sticks around….there is a reason for that!
My husband found that cool trick online (of how to make the chips look like they’re in a bowl & you don’t have to dig down into the bag). Nifty.
6. Fresh fruit is my friend.
I don’t care what crazy stuff out there says fruit is bad for you. They’re all liars & totally wrong.
Yes it has sugar in it, but hello?! Vitamins, fiber, and other antioxidants & nutrients, people?! I’d much rather see people downing grapes than m&ms any day. So any word on ‘stay away from fruit’ is lamesauce IMO.
7. I am slightly vain in the fact that I love being tan. So sue me.
I’ve mentioned this before, but I just LIKE being tan. I always wear sunscreen (duh), but I turn a nice shade of brown when I am in the sun. And I like it!
My tan from earlier in the summer is fading (sad!) because of some bad weather, not having time to be at the pool, etc.
Well, I am FIXING that this weekend! I’ve already checked the weather & there is a bright big sun for Saturday. Woot!
8. I won a giveaway!
I totes won a giveaway on Lauren’s blog & have thoroughly been enjoying my prize.
I won 3 bags of FlapJacked Protein Pancake mix, and they are yumm! I’m lazy in the kitchen (you all knew this), so these bags are a lifesaver.
I also love that there is no artificial or fake anything in the ingredients, and they’re high in protein. OH, and the co. is run by a super cute family from Colorado. Great story, great products!
9. There is a lot of joy in talking to a best friend on the phone!
I just had to throw that one out there. Talking on the phone to a good friend who just GETS you is really amazing. No matter time or distance, those kinds of friends will always be a true friend. I’m lucky to have a few of those in my life, and am so grateful for their friendship!
So if you’re having a bad day, call up a good friend or sibling–it is so uber helpful!
10. I’ve liked a few quotes lately that I’ve pinned.
Here are some! (See the rest by following moi & all are linked in my page there)
Well you all have yourselves a LOVELY weekend!! <3
What are some of YOUR Friday faves??! Any fun weekend plans on YOUR agenda??! Do YOU like the Chobani Flips–if so, which one is YOUR fave?!
