Friday Favorites

Friday, March 13, 2015

Good Morning! It's Friday and right there is my favorite thing of all today! It has been a long exhausting week, this weekend is still going to be busy, but at least I have my other half around to help during the day!! Now for the rest of my favorites this week....

#1 Downton Abbey

Oh my goodness! I had heard tons of people talk about this show and I really didn't think it would be something I would have interest in. Well, was I ever wrong! This show is great! I have been watching it on Amazon and it is so hard to turn it off, once I have started watching it at night. I am currently on season 3. If you haven't watched it, you should give it a try, you may be surprised! 

#2 Kelly Ripa's hair

Yes, I took a picture of my TV! 

My hair is longer now than I have had it since my teen years. I have kept it long for way longer than I ever have in my adult years. Normally my hair is quite short. Well, I am in total debate as I am getting closer to needing a cut and color, whether to stay long or go back to short. I do love the way my hair looks short, but there are some down sides to short hair. 
  1. I have to have it cut every 6 weeks on the dot or it is not fixable the way I like it. 
  2. I can't throw it up when I don't have time to fix it (biggie)
It may only be two reasons, but they are big reasons! With my hair long, I have been going 12 weeks between hair appts. which is just really nice! And I love being able to throw it up, for ease on days I don't have time, and I just love getting my hair off my neck at the end of the day, who's with me on that??!! 

Anyway, even though I love the perks of having long hair, I am being drawn to short hair pics. The other day, Kelly and Michael was on for a sec and I fell in love with her hair. How cute does this look? It put me in such debate again. 

Although unless I have a hair stylist fixing my hair on a daily basis, it probably won't look like hers anyway, but I love it! 

#3 Where's the Love?

I wrote a post last week, Where's the Love, that is my favorite, not because of what I wrote, but because of the feedback I have received. I promised to Keep it Real on the blog and I have tried hard to be totally honest with my struggles. This post, was about as deep into my secrets as you are going to get, and the response that I have received is overwhelming. I have had Facebook messages, e-mails, text messages and comments from people I know well and people that I don't, saying how much they needed to hear the things in the post. How it struck a cord for them, whether it be to be kinder to themselves or that they needed to go shopping and show themselves some love, or just that they didn't feel alone in their feelings anymore. Those comments, make putting my "secrets" out for the world to see, worth it. Don't we all feel better when we know we aren't alone in our struggles?? If you haven't read the post you should! And if you have, you should share it, you never know who might need to hear those words today! 

Linking up with Andrea and Erika today! 

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I am excited to get on the scale at Weight Watchers tomorrow! It has been a great week! Come back next week to hear all about! 



  1. That hairstyle is soo cool but short hair to me is a bit hard to style--- if you're up to it, go for it :-)

  2. Love that style! Once you learn to use a wand or the curling iron to give soft waves it really is easy. The dirtier the better has seemed to work for me. :)

  3. I have always envied Kelly Ripa's hair and thought about getting my hair cut that way, but my hair is waaaay too thick and probably wouldn't keep the cute wave. I'm all about a low maintenance haircut right now, and my chin-length bob works for that.


I would love to hear your comments and suggestions...
