So today is National Donut Day and evidently I was thinking it was Do Not day because I will straight up confess I prepared nothing special for Friday Favorites! What is a blogger to do when the juices are just not flowing? Well I decided it was the perfect time to “fess up” about a few things.
…..I have spent every extra minute I have reading Me Before You!! Y’all, I have heard about this book for so long and when I saw the movie was coming out I wanted to read it first and it is so good I can hardly put it down. Yesterday Carly left my iPad at a friends house so I seriously was reading it on my itty bitty iPhone screen.
…..While I use to step on my scale daily, I rarely pull it out but finally decided I kind of needed to evaluate the situation because all my clothes are fitting too tight. Not pretty folks, not pretty. Evidently my ploy to eat and drink my way through Spring has been successful! Hence my plan to revive my healthy living with some clean eating, reviving the 10000 steps a day and cutting out the evening beer on the porch. The good news is I am working on reviving the Fit for a Queen series and started by providing a little nutrition info. If you are interested in Macronutrients you should check it out!
…..I may have gotten just a little carried away with the Nordstrom half yearly sale! Surprisingly I have not even opened the boxes which arrived yesterday and I’m not even positive I remember what I ordered. So I’m the one always concerned about our budget so when stuff like this shows up I’m looking at Keith like I have no clue where they came from and hence…no opening in front of him….ha. The best part about shopping at Nordstrom is free shipping and returns so the only risk I’m taking is that I will love it all! Here are some of my favorite things I saw on the sale. Can you guess what I may have ordered? I may unpack it all on Snapchat shortly. 🙂 Hint…when I’m feeling plump I my feet are always still skinny.
…..I really don’t know sometimes how in the world other people get so much done. I mean, y’all, I am not insecure about my success as a woman but dang it could I just find enough time to finish one book a month or one Net Flix series??!! I am amazed all the time at women who are reading like 3 books a month when I’m barely making it through one. Don’t even get me started on those of you who are watching Friday Night Lights or Gilmore Girls for like the 3rd time….I freaking started in October and am STILL NOT DONE!! So honestly, I really just wanna stay home all weekend and lay in bed reading while watching Gilmore Girls.
So that’s it friends a few of my little confessions for Friday! We have baseball a short drive away and will be splitting up so I can head to Wharton for my nephews graduation party. It will be a fun weekend and maybe, just maybe I’ll find a way to finish this book AND make it to the movies to actually watch it on the big screen.
Quick little prayer request….I have a sweet friend who needs to be lifted up today. She will be putting her kidos on a plane to see their grandparents for the first time alone. I know they are so excited and she is super excited for them but let’s admit this can be a little scary. Please pray that she is covered with peace and calm and also that her babies feel secure and safe. Thanks!
Wishing you all the best weekend!
