Friday Faves

This has been a pretty good week! I did look like a drowned rat yesterday because of all the rain and one of the boxers (cough...Tig Tig...cough) did pee on the floor because he is afraid of the thunder gods, but other than that a good week.
  • A family friend hosted a couples shower for Gabriel and I this past Saturday. This was the best idea ever! Gabriel got a shit ton of tools, which he desperately needs since we are constantly working on the house. He also got a bottle of whiskey and of scotch. I got things for the kitchen and towels. It was like everyone felt bad for him, so they all gave him pity gifts because they thought they would be the only ones to give him something. Not so much.

  • Sandals are in full effect in the KC area. I am loving that I can wear whatev I want and not have to worry about if my feet are going to freeze to death. Although I have to admit, it's not actually that bad after you stop being able to feel your feet they're so cold.
  • Messy buns are all I am doing with my hair right now. I like to call them shit balls. Why? Becuase I literally dry shampoo my hair, put in a ponytail and wrap a second pony tail holder around it all, then bobby pin shit in place. I know, not that detailed of an explanation more of the cliff notes version, but if you want picture directions let me know. It literally takes 2 minutes, 4 if you fishtail braid the bangs. I will get my hair trimmed up, but right now I am too lazy and poor.
  • I have found more new blogs to read this week than ever before! I am not sure how, but magically I have found at least 5 blogs that my little heart goes pitter patter as I read their posts. Now, all I have to do is make them my friends. Because I am a creepy stalker like that. 

I'm linking up with one of the blogs that I started cyber stalking this week. Go check it out Amanda at Meet at the Barre!

  1. Tools are such a good idea for shower gifts; we moved from a condo when we bought our house and had nothing. I think we had a hammer, some screwdrivers, and a level and that was about it. We have purchased so many damn tools, yard tools, etc. that getting them for your wedding is amazing.

  2. I love finding new blogs as well and I found so many from this link up!

  3. Yes I love when I hear I've been cyber stalked (in a good way not like creepy man watching me get into my car kinda way) ;-) I'm all about the messy bun especially since I wash my hair like twice a week! Thanks for linking up I'm so glad you found some new blogs to follow! xoxo

  4. Dry shampoo and messy buns, gotta love them both :) My go to often!

  7. I wore my hair in a bun a few weeks ago at work and everyone was all "OMG so cute" and I was all "Cool, thanks, it's only like this because it's dirty..." Love when stuff like that works out!


I'm excited you're here. Leave me a message so that we can be excited together!
