Five On Friday #10 & Friday Favourites #2!

It's Friday, it's Friday, it's Friday!
Just call me Cap'n Obvious.
I'm linking up with Darci,  AprilChristinaNatasha and all the girls for another Five on Friday! Also, linking up for Meet @ The Barre's Friday Favourites.

1. Babies!

Can I count this as a Friday five? Two of my fave bloggers had their babies this week and I feel like they are my friends, that's how happy I am for them. I don't want to post pictures or anything cause that ain't my place, but I'm talking about Camp Patton & Little Baby Garvin. I can't wait to see more of them. 

2. Divergent Trilogy.

Did I mention I was reading this? Up to Allegiant, so no spoilers. Oh, did I mention I dragged hubby to see the movie?

Just wanted to remind myself you.

3. Pretty time!

Getting my hair cut and fake tan tomorrow! I don't like tanning beds, I'm scared of self tanning myself, and one of my besties does it at her salon and has done it for me several times, so I know it's awesome. Sometimes us girls need a little help in the pretty department, and nothing makes you feel better than a fresh cut and fancy blow dry.

I'm sure I'll be walking around all weekend like this:

4. Definition of shopaholic.

That would be me. Hi! *waves*

I know I can't seem to go a week without mentioning this, but srsly. I shop far too much, though I have tons of cute new things coming my way, the April budget post may or may not happen because I'm far too ashamed. I think I have to ban myself in May. I absolutely have a problem.

5. Speaking of shopping...

I am unhealthily obsessed with coral right now. How gorgeous is this dress? I just love how simple it is. So many dresses these days have too much going on.

I want it.
I am also drooling over this one, which I may or may not have ordered.

forever 21 FTW

Favourites, Favourites, Favourites!

Favourite Recipe

Taco Soup from Meet @ the Barre - I haven't made it yet but I know it's one of those recipes that I cannot mess up, that both hubby and I will enjoy because it will taste amazeballs. Totally trying it this weekend.

Favourite Song

Because I didn't grow up with country music, I am not a huge fan of George Strait. I don't dislike him, I just tend to like newer country, which my hubby tends to call crap not very good music. But have you heard his new-ish song I got a car? uhhmmaagawd I loves it. I kinda makes me cry a wee bit.

Favourite Blog

I freaking love Kathy over at Vodka and Soda. One of those blogs I get a little excited when I see a new post. Seriously though, her humpday confessions always have me laughing too hard and too loud, and she's hardcore. That's all, really. Check her out. 

Favourite Quote

Favourite Outfit

Well, it's not really an outfit, but I am seriously loving chambray skirts right now - is that weird? I used to rock a denim mini when I was like 13, but I love these styles because they are longer and casual. What do you think?

Favourite Workout

I finally went back to the gym this week, after a far too long hiatus. It feels good, and I am so sore I cannot walk very well or lift my arms very high. After I am back in my routine for a few weeks, that sore feeling disappears and very rarely comes back this bad, and as crazy as it sounds, I enjoy the pain. I have always had a thing for squats, they make me feel super strong and they really do their job. When I don't have time to go to the gym, or I just want a little extra burn, I'll do a quick pop pilates video.

Favourite Funnies



You can see the exact moment where it goes
And then it falls in.

World War Tea.

Have a fabulous weekend peeps.

  7. Oh my goodness I have a coral obsession, too. I was packing for a 3-day trip and the first thing I liked it was coral, which is fine. But then, so was the second, so I put it back and considered something else--also coral. I'm officially not allowed to buy any more coral clothes! Haha :)

  8. I just laughed so hard at the dancing woman and businessman gif!! Entirely too amusing for me!! We all love shopping just call it adoration instead of addiction lol! I'm terrified of spray tanning - but I need to get on that because I am far too pale!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  14. Well I'm waving my hand as a serious shopaholic too!!! And I need both those dresses! Your funnies totally cracked me up! Hope you have a great weekend!

  15. Maxi dresses are amazing. I just jumped on board the maxi skirt wagon, and I have no idea what I was waiting for. They are also amazing, especially when it is still a little cool, like it is here, but you are over pants, like I am.

  16. I'm so glad you commented on my blog today. Don't mind if I start stalking you. :) I need that dress badly. Also, I need to know what you think when you finish the last book in the Divergent series. Have a good weekend!

  17. Ok, I definitely needed the laugh from those GIF's lol.

  18. Yay for getting back to the gym! I am slowly forcing myself back on the workout wagon. You'll have to let me know what you think of Allegiant.

  19. Oh my seriously I feel like I need like I need to write down notes as I read this post so I don't forget to touch on all the amazing parts of it.
    -I'm sorry I've been a major source of your shopping woes....but at least they are all affordable right? I love that long coral maxi you listed! The world is better when we shop I agree!
    -Make that taco soup it's freaking amazing
    -I'm like that chambray skirt....add it to the list of obsessions
    -Your gifs and ecards I am dying! That tiger one and the girl dancing just made my morning!

    Thanks for linking up you killed it! xoxoxo

  20. Your funnies are hilarious. The tea thing....stupid England.

    I am a serious shopaholic as well. I would say lets make a support group together...but then after two days we would just be sending each other pictures of cute shit we want to buy and giving into temptation. Dont lie or deny that!

    I LOVE coral right now too!!!!!!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  21. Agreed - nothing makes me feel prettier than a fresh cut and blowdry!

  22. Girl go get your tan on! This Winter kicked me in the pants and I am pale even for me. Those funnies, I die! The girl dancing is hilarious, i had to call a friend over to watch it too. The last one is hilarious, who doesn't drink cold tea?!

  23. Yay for spray tans - way better than those awful tanning bed rays. Enjoy your new look this weekend! Love coral so much right now, too! Makes tans look killer :)

  24. Love that quote! I feel ya on the tanning, I had pre cancer spots removed so I have to be super careful. A haircut and spray tan will make for a perfect weekend. Hi! <---- fellow shopaholic waving at ya! ;)

  25. I adore that you spell it favourite. <3 I'm excited for your haircut!

  26. Mmmmm I totally need to try that taco soup out too! Coral is always one of my warm weather go-to's just so fun and perky!

  27. Oh, girl! I'm in desperate need of a tan. I really wish I knew someone who did spray tans! And I love those maxi dresses! Hope you have a great weekend :)
