HAPPY FRIDAY!!! This week has flown by since I had Monday off, even though the majority of the week, I had no idea what day it was. And even though it went pretty fast, it doesn't make me any less happy that today is finally Friday! If you read my confessions post yesterday, this is the post I was referring to. The post that was supposed to happen last week but didn't and the week before but didn't. Hey, better late than never, right? Anyway, enough rambling, on to my Friday Five!
Pinterest Told Me To's bachelor recaps.
Shay Shull (Mix and Match Mama - love her!!) and her best friend is Sheaffer).
Long story short, she posts a lot about fashion but also does Bachelor recaps. And they are HILARIOUS. Seriously, if you don't follow her, or you're not into fashion-y things, you should still check out her bachelor recaps HERE!
black version of these, but the more I see other people wearing the white version, I REALLY kinda sorta want the white ones too. Is that bad? Can I justify needing two pairs of the same shoe? I mean, my work is super casual now and I wear Converse, Toms, or flip flops to work everyday, so... maybe I do need them both? I do, right?
The TGIT shows came back last week and I was so happy! I love me some Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder. Does anyone else watch these? Grey's was INTENSE and was probably my favorite out of all of them last week. I've been a loyal watcher of that show from the beginning even though it took a turn for the boring in the middle season, but it's back and I'm loving it!
Speaking of rose, does anyone know how to get that little accent mark over the e on rose (I have a Mac)? Because it looks like rose to me and it's supposed to be row-say. Anyway, I've been on a rose kick lately. It's definitely been my wine of choice. And seeing as how yesterday was National Drink Wine Day, it seems fitting to share about my current favorites.
My current favorite is the one on the far right, the Espiral. All three of these are from Trader Joe's and Seth got me them for Valentine's Day. I've had the Espiral before (I think he got it for me for my birthday maybe?) and it's been high on the rotation for a while now. The best part of all of these wines is that they are all $5 or less! Does anyone have any good wine recommendations or ones I should try?
Kansas City Mom Blog.
My friend Vanessa guest posted for the Kansas City Moms Blog the other day about Why You Can't Judge a Mom by Her Instagram Feed and I just loved her post! It's so, so true and I find myself comparing myself to other mom's (women's) Instagram feeds all the time. I try not to but I feel like it's just human nature. When you see those gorgeous photos or perfectly staged houses or picture perfect kids in gorgeous little outfits, you can't help but compare what you have to what they have. But in reality, you never know what goes on behind the camera. Maybe that is the only clean corner of their house? Maybe they are in sweatpants with 4 day old dirty hair? Maybe 3 seconds after the picture was taken, the kids tore apart the neat and tidy house? Who knows! And while I hate to compare myself, it is only human nature to do so, but I try to remind myself, like the saying goes, comparison is the thief of joy. And I choose joy.
And with that... Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
