Friday Favorites | Long Weekend Ahead

It's a pretty great Friday because we have a three-day weekend ahead!! It's been quite the week and I for one could use an extra day to regroup!!! Linking up with Amanda and Liz for a few of my favorite things this week!! 

Favorite Recipe

So while I realize that not everyone is a fan of Tofu, myself previously included, I stumbled upon this recipe and we tried it for dinner, but instead of noodles, we did a stir fry with rice and it was delicious!! Honestly I would have never guessed I was eating tofu!! For those wondering - Gary is a huge fan!! 

Favorite New Show

My friend Erica has been telling me for the longest time that I needed to start watching Jane the Virgin on the CW...well the fact that it was on the CW sort of turned me off, but then Gina Rodriguez won best actress in a comedy series at the Golden Globes and I decided to start watching!! It is hilarious and set to be like a Telenovella! Give at least one episode a chance and you'll be happy you did!! 

Favorite Quote 

I stumbled upon this quote earlier this week and just fell in love with it - does that ever happen to you!? You read something and it just really makes sense to you at that moment in your life?!

Favorite Outfits to Recreate

via
This week I opted to find looks that I could actually wear/pull off instead of finding a celebrity look that stood out!! Loved both of these looks mostly for a great date night outfit!

  1. Lucky you, with the three day weekend. We don't get a day off until Memorial day, so I just take lots of vacay, haha!

    I'm loving those outfits, lady. You have SUCH an eye for style! And thanks for the tips for packing a rolling back. Since I've gone to Texas and Ft Worth the past two weekends, I've been living in a carryon. New pacing tips always help, right?

    Happy weekend, fabulous friend!

  2. I'm SO excited for the 3 day weekend as well! Time to relax or get things done, or a nice combo of both!
    I'm super intrigued by your tofu recipe, especially if Gary liked it too! I may have to try it! I've totally stumbled across quotes that just resonate with me! Your outfit choices are super fabulous, just like you! Can't wait to see how you recreate them if you do! Have a great weekend girl!!

  3. I'm so jealous of everyone with three day weekends! I love both of those looks! Casual but cute. I've been hearing a lot about Jane the Virgin as well... might have to check it out soon! Enjoy your long weekend :)

  4. Yay for an extra day this weekend! And I love both of those outfit inspirations. Amen to the quote. I find quotes all the time that speak to me... too many of them, maybe!

  5. Yay for long weekends! I love the outfits you featured on here, and will have to recreate them as well!

  6. I've been meaning to check out Jane the Virgin because I've also heard good things about it - may be the perfect long weekend activity! And that recipe looks delish! Have a great weekend! xoxo, - M @ The Sequin Notebook

  7. That tofu does look really good! I've never tried it before, but I might have to! That quote is one of my favorites that I often remember and apply to my own situation. Happy Friday!!

  8. I love that feeling when something just clicks with something, I've had that with a book. Like I was supposed to see it, read it, know it, feel it. The 13 thoughts is hilarious! I've been working out at home to avoid the January rush.

  9. I didn't know Jane the Virgin already started, I was hoping to catch it when it premiered *womp womp*. And YES for a long weekend, I'm so glad I'm finally at a job that gives me this Monday off... much needed!

    Happy Friday gurlie :)

  10. No three day weekend this weekend, but next Monday I'm off again and I love my Mondays off, Enjoy!! I love the re-create outfits you chose! Have a great three day weekend!!

  11. Jealous of your long weekend!! I've never watched Jane the Virgin, I always though the previews looked dumb but maybe I'll give it a chance now. Love both of those outfits! I think I need to try to recreate them too! Happy Friday love!!

  12. JTV is on my list to watch one of these days! she was adorable and humble in her speech. totally won me over.

  13. I’ve been meaning to put together a post on packing a carry on suitcase! I can’t remember the last time I’ve checked one. I loved Gina’s speech at the GG and definitely want to watch an episode!

  16. Happy Friday!!! That recipe looks good but I don't know how I feel about the Tofu. I'm not a huge fan of it. The quote is so cute, I need to get cute things for my little cube at work. It's so bland. I am really starting to love the ripped jeans, I have been rockin' mine all the time since I got them from Express. Have a fantastic weekend :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. You know, that was the main reason I didn't want to watch Jane the Virgin, either. The CW is not my first thought for great TV -- I'll have to give it a chance. I'm glad you tried tofu! I am a meat-eater, but it adds a nice surprise to dinner. It just has to be flavored right and that recipe looks delish! Happy 3 day weekend!

  18. I was very intrigued when I saw you pin that tofu recipe but I figured Nick would hate it - glad to see Gary didn't!! I might have to give it a try now! Happy Friday! :)

  19. You know, when you're out of the official workplace, one totally forgets when national holidays are! MLK used to be a fav since it's just a nice little three day weekend thrown in to brighten a January... I love tofu, but it has to be cooked right! That looks delicious. Totally giving it a try ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love those outfits - they need to be recreated!! I'm glad you liked the tofu, it can be so hit or miss! Hope you have a great (long!) weekend love!

  21. You always find the best outfit inspiration! I've never heard of Jane the Virgin but it sounds hilarious! Have a great weekend!

  23. I have had that same thought/moment when seeing a quote too. So funny when that happens!! Love both of those outfits and I think that they would look fabulous on you. That recipe sounds good too, maybe I'll try it some time. I will have to check out that show too, especially since that actress is from Chicago! :-) I hope that you're having a good day so far and I hope that you have a wonderful long weekend lady!!

  24. I'm so excited that my office is closed on Monday. January is flying by. Thanks for posting the packing tips. I so need them as I'm traveling soon. Have a great weekend.

  25. LOVE those outfits - you would look killer in either one! I am itching to start watching Jane the Virgin now, too because of her Golden Globes win. Even better that now someone I know can attest to the fact that it's a good show! Enjoy your long weekend, girl!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am so thrilled to have a three day weekend. After watching the golden globes I feel like I need to give Jane the Virgin a try. I'm home sick today so I will check it out! Hope you have a great weekend!

  32. I just love Jane The Virgin! And I was shocked when she picked up that award! Here I was worried that another show I love will probably not get picked up for a second season and she's winning a Golden Globe! So happy you are watching it now! :-) Happy Friday!

  36. Believe it or not, I really enjoy CW shows. Supernatural is one of my favorites, and I used to be really into Vampire Diaries until I lost cable and got Dish. I'm currently diving into Smallville because I never saw the full series. It's been so much fun. The music is all stuff from when I was in high school (Ex: Sum 41, Blink 82, etc.) I'm totally going to check the show you mentioned out once it comes out on DVD. :)

    Enjoy the long weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  37. those outfits are super cute! and i have been wanting to try tofu for so long so thank you for that recipe! it looks so simple and KC will definitely like it (I hope lol). That post with the gifs for gymming in january was so hilarious and true! have a good weekend!

  48. I always thought tofu was totally gross until I tried it in my Pad Thai and now I love it. I've never made it myself before but I would definitely make the recipe you posted. It looks tasty and not too difficult.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love tofu! Just the prep sometimes is annoying but once you get all the water out of it and marinate soooooooo good! I heard really great things about that show I think I may have to DVR it. Hope you have a fabulous weekend love!

  53. I wish I liked tofu-- though I've never tried it like that, which actually looks kind of good. I'm so behind on TV shows right now, but I'm intrigued to see that show after she won. I need to check out that packing article- I'm the worst with packing!

  71. Ohhhh I love those outfits!!! And that quote is so true and a great reminder on off days for sure!!!

    That recipe looks delicious!!! I have had tofu off of the hot bar at whole foods and actually enjoyed it so I wouldn't be above trying some at home. Especially in a recipe like that.

    Have a great weekend!

  72. i would've never guessed that was tofu! if i made it in our house, i'd have to lie to lee then tell him later! haha :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. For a split second I thought that was pork belly and pasta and I almost lost it, and ran to the store to get the ingredients. But it's tofu..... Deep sigh... Don't know if I could do it.
    I hadn't heard of Jane the Virgin until the Golden Globes (#AustraliaProblems) but iris on my list of shows to watch this week.
