Friday, Happy Friday

It's Friday. Hallelujah and Amen.

I thought today we'd talk about things that made us happy this week or, at the very least, things that made this workweek a bit more bearable.

1. The discovery of two new, really good songs: "Dancing in the Minefields" by Andrew Peterson, which is undoubtedly one of the most romantic songs I've heard in a long time and "Strip Me" by Natasha Bedingfield, a total girl power tune that's, coincidentally, not at all about taking off one's clothes.

2. Fun Size Snickers. You see, I've eaten half the bucket a few pieces here and there this week, reminding me again why I don't keep candy in my apartment. I just can't justify throwing out nearly an entire bowl full of deliciously caramel-y, peanut-y, chocolate-y goodness. And for some reason, eating 4 Fun Size bars doesn't make me feel nearly as guilty as when I devour an entire regular size bar. This is the warped way in which my mind operates sometimes...

I digress.

Either way, they have impacted my palette in a postive way this week.

3. This video from YouTube. Watch it and giggle.

4. Knowing that in only 13 days, I'll be in Nashville watching NeedtoBreathe with my sweet guy, (we'll call him "S"), pictured below. Forgive my lack of make-up, fashion and hair fixing...it is what it is : )

5. Being able to actually tell for the first time since I began this new program that my intense workout sessions have been paying off! I've always been pretty physically fit, but I'm seeing new muscles in my legs and arms that have never been there before...exciting stuff for this girl.

6. ...which means I can definitely splurge on something good for dinner tonight! S and I and his sweet sister and her hubby are all going to this great Latin fusion restaurant in downtown Bentonville tonight. They have amazing queso and chips and the BEST entrees. Cannot wait to fill my tummy : )

So I gotta know, what's made your week a little sweeter/happier? Do tell.

Have a great weekend.

Be blessed, lovelies-


  1. Um, you two are ADORABLE.

    Is 'S' 'MM' or are you just surrounded by awesome men in your life?

  2. I love any fun sized chocolate!

    Have fun at NeedtoBreathe...I love them!

    Have a wonderful weekend :)

  3. PTL for Friday!!! :) Knowing we get a night out is what got me thru the week!! Can't wait to see y'all - & also can't wait for the queso - yuuuuuum!!!

  4. Fun sized snicker's YUMMMMM!!!!!!

    The two of you are absolutely adorable!!!

  5. I've been eating fun sized snickers all week too! It's my fav candy bar and that left over bowl of halloween candy can't go to waste of course. I'm happy this week (for some odd reason considering last week I was on my honeymoon) because it was a 4 day week and I'm going to visit big sis and little nephew tomorrow.

  6. fun sized candy is making my thighs not so fun sized.

    have a great weekend love!

  7. Hubs has the weekend OFF, which is what has made this week easier for me! :)

    <3 ya, girl. Have a great weekend!

  8. Look at you guys! Such a cute little couple! What fun weekend plans, girlfriend. I am hitting up a latin fusion restaurant with my girlfriends tomorrow, and i couldn't be more excited!

    My sweet BF is away on business, but hopefully a fun weekend trip will take my mind off of missing him!

    Wishing you a lovely weekend! Thanks for making me smile :)

  9. AH! So stinkin cute! This week has been a tough one but I'll admit, there has been a certain someone that has made my week a little sweeter. :) But more details on that later. hehehhe, it makes me happy! Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend! xoxoxo

  10. Jayme!! I cannot wait to hear ALL about this "certain someone"...glad to know they are making my favorite Kentucky girl happy!! : )

  11. yay for working out and the results actually showing :)

  12. Girl, I ate the WHOLE BAG of fun sized snickers before halloween ever hit and THIS is why I don't keep candy at home. I am still regretting those bites!

    What workout program are you doing?!! I need to get back on the horse, I finished P90X and I need to start again OR just start working out again period.

  13. LOVE this post. Have a fantastic weekend friend! :)

  14. Congrats on the workout progress! I'm trying to get there myself.

    Since I just entered your fabulous giveaway, I thought I'd let you know about the giveaway I'm hosting right now for two pairs of Kendra Scott earrings & some OPI nail polish - come check it out!

  15. I have had the same love affair with candy this week. My poison was Twix! Hope you had a great weekend!

  16. Woohoo! That's great about the workouts starting to pay off!

  17. So jealous, I love Needtobreathe!
