Friday Favorites

Did this week seem long to anyone else...the days sort of just dragged on, but alas we've come to Friday and the weekend is ahead!! As per usual linking up with my girl Amanda for some Friday Favorites!
Favorite Workout
Back with my favorite fitness gals and this arm routine does not disappoint! I did this on Monday and come Wednesday I was still sore - that made me happy! 11 minutes of non-stop arm work!! 

Favorite Indulgence
As soon as the temps warm up I stock up on pops!! These bring back so many summer memories for me and at $3.00/box for 100 it's well worth it!! 

Favorite Recipe
I was pinning food on Pinterest left and right this week!! I found this Tomato-Basil & Spinach risotto and my mouth instantly started watering!! Does anyone else have an unhealthy obsession with risotto...this recipe seems to be light and fresh! 

Favorite Look of the Week
Jessica Alba looked amazing in this Preen red/orange dress!! I love that it looks like the dress is actually a two piece but it's the most delicate detailing at the waist that is holding it together! 

Favorite Show
Suits season premier was on Wednesday night and I can't say enough about the first 5 minutes - AMAZING! I'm not sure if you guys watch, but you should definitely start! I know that season one is on Netflix (not streaming) and the other seasons should be there as well! Three piece suits never looked so good...

Favorite Links
+These hilarious thoughts most men have while watching Bravo
+Emily from Cupcakes & Cashmere shows us how to fake calligraphy
+These stunning photos from an Oregon wedding that make the rain on my day seem like nothing
Hope you will come back on Monday for our Weekending link-up!! Have a wonderful weekend!! 
Weekending

Also linking up with Christina and April.

  3. That risotto looks amazing!

    I don't even bother trying to watch my Bravo shows sometimes because that's all I hear lol. I prefer to watch my trashy [amazing] TV alone!

  4. That risotto looks so good! And yes to popsicles!!! My handwriting isn't even remotely as good as Emily's so I wouldn't even begin to be able to fake that calligraphy. And that wedding picture is crazy! Happy Friday doll!!

  19. I used to love those pops! And that list of what guys think while watching Bravo is spot on! My poor husband...

  20. It sounds like we had opposite weeks, since mine went by so fast! Love those ice pops! Motts makes a version that are different apple flavors and they're soo good-- definitely not the same bargain as the original though. I'm not on the current season of Suits but I was so excited when I saw that it was airing now & they have Season 3 on Amazon Prime- if I paid better attention I could have tried to catch up in time.

  21. That risotto I need to try asap....! As for Suits, those guys are serious babes. I’ve only seen a few episodes of the show but really like it!

    ReplyDelete

  24. I have an unhealthy obsession with risotto and I blame Toscano Boston for doing that to me...their mushroom risotto is TO DIE FOR. Love that restaurant, Spyros and I seriously want to do a Boston trip soon + visit all of our favorites from when he lived there!!! Such an amazing city. Xxxx.

  38. The fire wedding pictures had me freaking out but they are so incredible. Who plans their wedding knowing they'll have to have a back-up site also booked because of forest fires? Fools be cray. Push-pops are the best! Wish I was 6 again at the pool all day buying those suckers up for 25 cents each ha. Have a great weekend, pretty!

    Also... I don't know about you, but I've been super bummed about missing five on Friday for the summer. If you're interested my friend Karli {september FARM} and I {the farmer's wife} are starting up a link-up "oh hey, friday!" with the exact same outline and would love for you to join us tomorrow or any Friday! Hope to see you there.
