Friday Favorites

Hey, Hey Friday!

Our school district listed today as a “Bad Weather Make-Up Day” and since we had zero Snow Days that means NO SCHOOL for my kiddos.  You can imagine how sad they are about that.  {Insert my sarcastic face here.}

I’m teaming up with my girlies, Andrea and Narci, to bring you some FRIDAY FAVORITES!

My hot random mess for the week…

-Cute Shoes-
I bought a similar Nike Flyknit Training Shoe for our Disney trip and I wear them all the time, but I don’t work out in them. I don’t think they have enough cushion to keep my aging feet happy. ha!  When I was walking through the mall on Wednesday, I spied these Nike Flyknit Running Shoes.  They’re super cute.  There aren’t many reviews yet but most are pretty good.  I’m giving them a try!  Hope they’re a new FAVORITE!

-Holderness Family-
I’ve seen several videos from this couple…they’re ALWAYS funny, but their latest video.  YOU GUYS!  The husband calls on his way home from work, tells his wife he’s really craving some wings and they should go out to eat, and she has all kinds of excuses for not going out-however the main reason is-SHE ALREADY TOOK OFF HER BRA!  I totally understood where she was coming from!  The hubby can’t even fathom this as an excuse, but I’m pretty sure EVERY WOMEN knows where she’s coming from.  šŸ™‚  It was a FAVORITE this week.

-Phone Issues-
You guys my phone started acting crazy late on Wednesday night.  It continued being weird on Thursday and by Thursday night I was on the phone with Apple and AT&T for over two hours.  Tab was out of town traveling back on Thursday evening and there was a span of two hours where I felt completely naked!  This meme spoke to me.  Phone issues are NOT my FAVORITE but this meme was.  šŸ™‚

-Athleta Haul-
Yesterday, I shared the latest Athleta haul with all of you.  I went in the store to take a quick peek around and left with some treasures.  If you missed the post, you can see it all here.

-Being Kind-
This clip from The View was one of my FAVORITE things I saw this week.  It’s no secret Candace Cameron and Whoopi Goldberg share very different beliefs.  But in this clip, Candace shares one of her hardest days on the View and how Whoopi reached out, put all their differences aside, and was incredibly kind.  The clip brought me to tears and it made me think about how often in life if we chose to be kind, everyone would win.  

Candace was on The View promoting her new book, Kind is the New Classy.  Sounds like I need to read!

In the spirit of being kind and spreading some cheer….

I’m giving away TWO $250 GIFTCARDS to Athleta or Nordstrom {YOUR choice!}  One for YOU and one for you to spread some kindness around by sharing with a friend.

I’ll be posting a picture over on Instagram this morning.  All you have to do to enter is make sure you follow me, comment on that picture, and tag a friend you’d like to spread a little kindness to as well.

Happy Friday, Friends!

    Oh, you are going to LOVE those running shoes. They are the only kind I will wear these days. But you should try to work out in them, too! I know they don't seem super sturdy but they actually work well in the gym. Besides being cute and cozy šŸ˜‰ Happy Fri-yay!

    That meme! YES! I probably panic at least twice EVERY SINGLE DAY when I can't find my phone. It usually only lasts about 2.3 seconds before I find it, but those 2.3 seconds are ROUGH. šŸ™‚

    The video clip of The View is wonderful–thanks for sharing it! I'm a BIG fan of Candace Cameron Bure, so I'm going to have to read her book.

    I love those shoes. The Holderness family always makes me laugh, especially as he used to be a news anchor for our area. I still remember him on the news and it is crazy to see where they have gone to now. Jess at Just Jess

    Our public school kids would be so jealous of no snow/weather days! They were supposed to get out June 9th but with snow/weather days they are now in school until the 23rd. It's been crazy!

    That's so awesome that your kids had an unexpected day off! We have to make up all of the snow days at the end of the year. Which means my kids are going until June 7th instead of getting out before Memorial Day…we had an awful winter!
    Love those shoes you posted. They look cute and comfy, and I love the color!
