Friday Favorites

Hello Ladies!

Today I am linking up with Andrea , Erika , and Narci and sharing my Friday Favorites.  Be sure to grab the graphic and link up too!


ONE
I decided this week that I just simply cannot put off getting back into a workout routine and eating better.  I have been HORRIBLE the past few months...and the scale can prove it:)  Dieting is HARD, and I will fail if I feel like I am depriving myself.  I am a firm believer in everything in moderation, and lately, moderation hasn't been in my vocabulary!  I have been eating two salads a day, and I am OBSESSED with this dressing...it is delicious!  If you guys have any awesome, healthy meals you are eating, PLEASE share them with me!


TWO
I was super excited to get this little package in the mail this week!  We are definitely looking forward to trying some new recipes!  You guys can preorder Shay's new cookbook here .  If you have not gotten her first two books yet, Meal Planner and Cakes go check them out!  Surprise packages are always a favorite for me!  Thank you Shay !


THREE
I figured before I started my diet, I needed to indulge, and this Banana Pudding ice cream did NOT disappoint.  My favorite banana pudding ice cream is from Front Porch, but I cannot find it here....but this one was pretty darn tasty!  Good thing I ate the entire container in a matter of a few days, so the temptation is gone:)


FOUR







Last weekend we had a little staycation, and we had the BEST time.  We stayed in a hotel about 3 minutes from our house, and just spent the weekend swimming and hanging out...it was such a fun little time, and it was nice to just spend some quality time, all 7 of us!  The kids are already asking when we can do it again...it is definitely something will do again!


FIVE
My new planner just arrived this week and I am LOVING it.  Two years ago I used the Erin Condren planner, and then I started using the Emily Ley Simplified Planner...and I did love them both...however they were both definitely pricey for a planner!  One of our goals this year has been to really watch what we spend, and save more money.  I decided that purchasing a planner for $50-60 just wasn't a necessity for me this year.  That being said, I did still want something super cute, that wouldn't break the bank.  I had given Brooke a Lilly planner last year for Christmas and she LOVED it.  So I decided to order myself one this year, and I am so glad I did!!  This is the exact one I ordered, but honestly all of them were bright, fun and cute!




I love everything about this planner...especially the price tag...only $24.00!



SIX
These are hands down my favorite colored pens to use in my planner!  I always order them from Amazon, and they are awesome and don't bleed through the page!  Get them!


So those are my favorites for this week!  We have some running around to do this weekend, and lots to get done in the house and yard too!  We are super excited that my mom will be here Thursday, and then we are heading to the beach for 4 days!  Hope you all have a great weekend!

  2. Girl! don't sweat the eating healthy and exercising bit because I'm right there with you! This week has totally sucked in that department! Love the planner. I was just telling someone this week, that I keep NOTHING in my phone. Everything is "written down." Have a great weekend!

    1. Yea that whole eating good thing is for the birds. Lol. But I'm determined to make an effort at least ;). And I am still old fashioned and write it all down in my planner. I never use the calendar on my phone. Have the best weekend !!!

  3. Definitely learning to eat moderately and not restrict yourself is key! So much harder in my 40's than ever before. I have not worked out in 3 weeks..eek. It makes me feel so much better when I am consistent. Have a super weekend!

  5. I am in the same boat after enjoying myself a little too much this summer. Time to buckle down. I'll have to try that dressing for sure. I have my eye on that cute Lily planner. The size and price are pretty perfect. Happy weekending!

  8. and I am so opposite! I tried a Lilly planner a couple of years ago when everyone was talking about them- never would bite on an Erin C one! But I didnt use it at all......so I am definitely a "put it all on my phone" gal! I have always struggled with my weight but I do exercise and I figure everything in moderation. Except wine. Drink that shizzle up! LOL jk......
