Happy Friday! Also, a Happy St. Patty’s Day, if you feel like celebrating that. I will celebrate by wearing green, which happens to be my favorite color. I’m also approximately 1/3 Irish, so there’s that. I pretty much hate all Irish food, though, so you won’t see me eating any of it.
Despite the whirlwind that was this week, I had some great things to bring to the Friday Favorites table today. Let’s dive right in, shall we?
Buying a house
This one has to be first, right? Technically, we don’t “buy” it until closing in a couple months, but I am glad to be done with the shopping around and worrying if we’ll find something or not. Riley and I celebrated with champagne, which clearly needed to happen.
Can we talk about Riley for a second? My husband has lost his damn mind. Out of nowhere, as soon as we agreed on an offer, he started daydreaming about our new house and all the great things to come. That’s a good thing, of course! I’m not complaining. I just didn’t realize how quickly our new house would involve things like fruit trees (and inevitably making jam?!?!), him building furniture for the new house (never seen him build anything in almost 11 years), and his sudden need to buy a pickup truck to carry all the new “house” things he plans to cart around. LOL, whaaaat?! Who is he?! We went out for date night the other night and I haven’t laughed that much in a long time. I think he’s been watching too much Fixer Upper.
I was stressed to the max the other night, so margaritas, chips, and queso were in order! Instead of thinking about things like house inspections, Riley made me laugh until my abs hurt. The man makes me laugh and helps me de-stress. What more could a girl want?
Speaking of abs….I love how all my favorites this week are blending into the next one. Anyway, I did an ab workout the other day and I’m still a little sore! I brought this oldie out of hibernation and completed it after my run on Wednesday.
It looks so simple, but if you use a hefty medicine ball and push yourself you will really feel it!
Adorable Dog Show Fails
Oooohh my goodness. This little jack russell failing at the agility course has to be the most adorable thing I’ve seen all week.
That’s all I’ve got for today! I’m working tomorrow, then we have the house inspection tomorrow afternoon. I have no set plans for the rest of the weekend, so I’ll probably be recovering from this crazy week.
Have a fun and safe St. Patty’s Day, Friday, and/or Beauty and the Best release day!
