Friday Favorites: 10/24/14

Friday! Let’s do the Friday dance, ok? Don’t worry, no one is watching!! 

Done? Good me too. Smile

I am super excited to have a play date schedule with this lovely lady and her 3 girls this morning! I don’t know what Luke is going to think of playing with 3 girls.  . ladies man. Winking smile 

Tomorrow, I am doing a Wildtree event  with my MIL. I’m super excited because I am trying out one of their Light and Healthy workshops and I think that the recipes will all be clean-eating (AdvoCare friendly!). So, I am super stoked. I’ll let you know how it goes!!

And I am super sad because tomorrow is the last Farmer’s Market of the season. . . anyone know how long butternut squash stays good for? I am totally thinking about buying a bunch!


I need to make these again, and this looks amazing, and this too. . . #butternutsquashproblems — ooohhh and this one. Winking smile 

And now on to my Friday Favorites. ..


–> Like to know it. Have you guys seen or heard about this? Basically you follow people on instagram and then if you “like” their photo, details and direct links to buy their outfit are sent to your email.


Do you have the same problem I have? I see an outfit and think I love that. . .but have no way of knowing where to buy any of it. This is the perfect solution. And nope, I am not getting anything from sharing this with you, I just really really like it!! But careful, it can be SO dangerous. Direct links to purchase. . . too easy to buy all the things. Winking smile Totally have already bought a dress and some shirts because of this site!

–> And I know I am totally the last person to jump on the Zulily (<β€”referral link) train. I think that I thought it was just kid and mom stuff. But it’s not. Michael Kors, Coach, Kate Spade sales just to name a few. .. don’t get me wrong, I got a pretty cute pair of Mickey Mouse PJs for Luke too, so literally something for everyone.

–> Seatbelts. Yup. I’m going there. Seatbelts are cool and save lives. As you may or may not know, my husband is the district traffic engineer for the Minnesota Department of Transportation. . .

basically he is in charge of making sure the roads are well functioning and safe. It also means that he gets updated from state patrol every time there is an accident on one of the state roads. And it is way too often that he gets notified of a fatal crash that potentially could have had a different ending if the people involved would have been wearing their seat belt. Thankfully, my parents always instilled upon me the importance of buckling up every time I’m in the car, and I hope to do the same for Luke. I’m going to get off this soap box now, but please buckle up, ok? 

–> Getting up early and working out.


I had a total fail on Wednesday morning when I set my alarm to get up early and then about 2am, turned it off. Man, the rest of the day was just miserable because I felt like I had failed even before I got out of bed. . . I know, I know, some days you need your sleep, right? But that wasn’t the case that day – I think I slept worse from “sleeping in” that if I would have just gotten up. Anyway, I made sure that I didn’t make the same mistake twice. Thursday morning, I was up and on the treadmill by 5:30am! 5 miles done before work and that set the tone for the rest of my day! Success. 

Happy Friday to you!! Any plans for the weekend?

Linking up with Heather and Claire this week!

  1. So true about the sleeping in vs. working out dilemma. I chose sleeping in today and I wish I hadn’t!

  3. Isn’t squash season the best!
    That Instagram thing looks awesome!

  4. Ugh, I hate missing a morning workout. Even when I think I need more sleep, I always feel better when I get a good sweat in and sacrifice 30 minutes in bed! As for the squash, I think they keep for quite some time, especially if they’re stored in a dark, cool, non-humid area. Stock up!

  6. I feel so naked if I don’t buckle up! I think it is so silly when people don’t do it. You sound good up on that soap box–preach it girl!

  7. Never heard of Like to Know It — cool idea! But can I be trusted??? πŸ™‚

    Oh my gosh, don’t talk about the farmer’s market ending…we have a few more weeks of ours, and I totally don’t even deserve to be sad because I haven’t made it down there nearly enough this summer, but end of farmer’s market = winter incoming! Noooo! πŸ™‚

    I love that you included seatbelts in this roundup, haha. πŸ™‚ I’m with Melanie, it’s weird to me that some people don’t do it!

  8. Omg going on those websites/following them on Instagram would be fatal for me! I’m already a sucker for things I like, they don’t have to be on sale either, if I stare at it too long, I pretty much get it haha. And my parents did the same with me, now I always wear mine no matter what. Plus I’m only 5’2, so when in a car I look like a little kid, and feel like when I drive by a cop car they are staring to make sure I’m not a little kid { they probably don’t even stare, it’s all in my head haha }, so if I was to not wear a seat belt, they would notice!

  9. I try so hard to make my whether to workout or not decision before I fall asleep. I agree, if I set my alarm and then sleep in the quality of sleep isn’t as good!

  11. I have been loving the “Like to know it” tool on instagram! I didn’t even know what it was called this past week when I discovered it. Very useful!

  12. Omg. I’ve been eating so much squash this season. Delicata, butternut, you name it.

    Like it to know it sounds amazing, but I’m sure I’d have to work on curbing my online shopping if I had it. Maybe I’ll try it for a little bit. πŸ™‚
