Favorites: It Says Pie

I am SO excited it’s Friday!!!! I have had multiple days this week where I laid in bed wishing I could nap all day.

I also just removed two bugs from our house after the cats chased them around without actually planning on eating them. They are like having a bug alarm system in the house. “BUG! THERE’S A BUG! HUMAN, WE HAVE NOTICED A CREATURE!” Today, Boba got a spider stuck to his paw by the thread, so when I picked Boba up, the spider came swinging at me. Summer is bug nightmares for me.

Anyway, I am ready for a break, and during the weekend, hopefully Greg can rescue me from the bugs. Here are a few of my favorites this week.

Favorite Picture:
Trying to get a cute picture with my cat, but all he can do is bite my head.

Favorite Food:
Trader Joe’s thai lime and chili cashews are spicy and like crack. My mouth waters thinking about a salty, spicy, delicious snack. They are also really good for road trips.

Favorite Read:
We rewatched Divergent while we were down South, and it made me want to reread the book. I did, and now I’m finally reading the second book, which I have NOT read before. This series is fascinating and I love the characters. I’m worried about the ending – I’ve heard just a few things and it seems like it’s going to be sad. I don’t know – don’t tell me, but I hope it’s good!

Favorite Purchase:
I almost never drop a lot of money on jeans, but during the Nordstrom anniversary sale, I tried on these J Brand dark plum skinny jeans, and they were like little fluffy kittens wrapped around my legs AND almost half off. Sooo, they came home with me. So far, I love them and they are the softest jeans I’ve ever owned. The woman at the register told me that washing your jeans inside out actually helps them last longer.

Also, while I was trying them on, the little alarm on the pant leg started beeping like crazy, so I figured I’d better buy them so they don’t think I’m a pant thief who is really bad at stealing pants.

Favorite Funny:
I share Dean’s love for pie.

Have a great weekend!! Linking up with Amanda at Meet @ the Barre for Friday Favorites.

She Took My Blanket – Favorites

Happy Fourth to everyone, and happy Friday if you’re not celebrating! The work day seems to go by even slower when you are waiting for a long weekend to start. I’m finally out and can share some favorites from lately.

Favorite Photo:
Boba enjoying rolling around outside. Since we started taking him out on a leash, he tries to wander outside every time we open the door. All he wants to do is lie on the rocks and chew on leaves. Who can blame him?

Favorite Food:
These are vegan…and I am always looking for ways to avoid cooking anything unless it is baked things going into my mouth. My mouth is watering just looking at them. Need to make!! HEllooo DIA-BEET-US.

Favorite Show:
I know everyone has already binge watched season 2 of Orange Is The New Black, but I’m still catching up. I love how badass Piper is in this season. She isn’t even taking Red’s shit. And who knew Morello was SO crazy??

Favorite Wishlist Item:
It’s around time for a new pair of running shoes. I have this pair right now, but I have no idea how many miles are on them. I’ve heard you are supposed to change them after 400-600. They also survived the Spartan Race and even after a good washing are pretty muddy looking.

I love my Brooks, but I’ve been thinking of trying Nike. I’ve had the Nike Free’s before, but they did not have enough support for me. This pair seems to be more padded and is cute:

Favorite Cuteness:

I could watch this pug puppy riding a dragon pug puppy over and over.

Favorite Funnies:
No context..whatsoever. I love this show.

Me this weekend, after one drink:

How I felt during my run today.. Summer is not meant for the pasty.

Boba Fett Is Over It

It’s almost July, and I have no idea how that happened. At least next weekend is a three-day weekend, woooohooo!

I now have a button on my sidebar, so that’s a thing. It took me much finessing to figure out how to do it, but now I can add blogs to my sidebar that are run by the awesomest ladies. Let’s get on with the Friday Favorites…

Favorite Photo:
My cat is so done with me as I try to take Photobooth pics of us.

Favorite Food:
I plan on trying this recipe from The Minimalist Baker this weekend. She has the best vegan recipes!! Obviously, you can still eat them even if you are not vegan. I loooove french toast on chewy sourdough bread.

Favorite Dog:
This little howling Frenchie…he’s adorable.
Source Unknown
Favorite Health/Beauty Item:
I started using pore strips again, and I have a slight addiction. If you want to see something disgusting/fascinating, watch this extreme close-up video of a pore strip removing black heads. Or don’t…don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Favorite Movie:
I got a message in my email today announcing a new Capitol TV Broadcast – President Snow’s Panem Address: Together as One. It makes me so pumped about the new movie. How disturbing does Snow look all in white? The second movie was so good, I immediately reread the whole Hunger Games series in a few days.
I will probably not cry…that much.
Just kidding, there are going to be gross tears everywhere.
We just have to wait till November, guys…

Half Pants & Favorites

I haven’t stopped in for blogging a lot this week, because work has been crazy hectic!! This was our fabulous Peak Week, in which I worked on Saturday and came in early almost everyday. And it’s not even over yet. I work this weekend at my other job – I’ve mentioned before that Greg and I are both in the Air National Guard. Prepared to be pooped.

As in, I texted Greg a picture of myself with half-pants on, saying, “I haven’t even completely put on pants yet.” TMI, don’t care.. sometimes the effort of putting on pants is just exhausting and you have to lay down for a bit.

Favorite Dog:

Because it’s freakin’ adorable, and I want a little French Bulldog to play outside with. Does anyone have a puppy? I will babysit it for free.

Favorite Photo:

My lovely girl, Luna. It also reminds me of how hilarious she looks from underneath the glass table.

Favorite Fashion:
Summer sales…everywhere!! I have some Old Navy cash to spend – $10 off $25, which is a pretty sweet deal.

Francesca’s is having a BOGO 1/2 off clothing sale + a Summer sale.

I have seen a lot of ladies wearing midi skirts, lately, and they look so stylish and feminine.

Asos has a huge selection, like this one seen above.

Favorite Funnies:

You know, just being cute with your significant other…

This is why we have to keep the treats in the kitchen cabinet now. We came home one day to find her like this, but with treats.. Treats everywhere, and a very fat cat.

More adorable than funny, but have you ever seen a baby camel?

I’m linking up with Amanda today from Meet @ the Barre. Have a fantastic weekend – I’ll see you all next week!

Favorites – Stalker Cats

I am so happy..because it’s finally Friday!! Work yesterday was crazy..I’m already dealing with PMS, so my brain was not ready for the ridiculous amount of stuff to get done. Friday will help me de-clutter my brain and hopefully relax! I love sharing some of my favorites…

Cat Pics:
Have you ever felt…watched.. while you were doing the dishes?

It’s a fun game we play, where she pretends to be super creepy and stalk me while I do dishes…. I hope it’s a game.

Then my boy thinks he can just jump in the sink and “MROWW” at me to play with him. Because obviously, the sink was in the way of playing.

Food:
Today is burrito bowl day. One of my favorite times of the day is the time I get to down a bowl full of rice and guacamole.

Moment:

This was taken at the very last obstacle of our Spartan Race. Greg looks like a freakin’ ninja, haha. I am thinking, “WOO! I didn’t break anything!!”

Cute:

I want to take a little piggy home! So adorable. If you want to be overwhelmed with cuteness, here are some more pigs doing pig things.

Fashion:
I ordered this maxi dress, because I am in love with the back. I hope it looks as good in person, I can’t wait for my order to arrive! This weekend, my goal is to find a pair of wedges to pair with dresses and shorts for the summer.

Enjoy your weekend, see you next week. I won’t judge, whatever you do. This is exactly what I have planned, except with less people and more food.

Friday Favorites

Is it Friday already? We’ve almost made it through the week. I have an epic day of work to fling myself through (at least it’s overtime, woo), and then the weekend begins. Here are some of my favorites this week:

Photographs:

My landlord’s dog came to see what we were doing while we were trying to stuff our humongous AC back in the window (the back of our apartment looks into their backyard). He’s super sweet, I just wanna hug him.

And then there’s my cat, Luna, who obviously ain’t got time for that.

Just kidding, she’s sweet, too. Except when it comes to food, then she will cut a bitch.

Recipe:

I made these cookies, and they were so incredibly chewy and soft. I eat vegan, but even Greg liked these, and he is a regular-milk & meat guy. I replaced half the coconut oil with Earth Balance, so they didn’t taste even a little coconuty this time to me.

Things to Do:

I want to hug all the cats like this.

Moment:
Friday – I’m just at work like

Dreaming of how crazy the weekend will be.

But there’s a real possibility there may be napping involved.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and I’ll see you again next week! Go find a cat to hug.

Dirt Cake on the Weekend

Our weekend was very relaxed, because Greg said he had studying to do (HA, like that happened) and we were feeling beat from our week. We went shopping on Saturday for our new camera, which I love and can’t wait to use more.

We did some useful stuff, like get my tires rotated and put the A/C back in, because I was sweating so freaking much last week. Naturally, now I’m freezing!!

Sunday was pancake day (hint: Sunday is ALWAYS pancake day).

Despite me freaking out, because, “We don’t have any vegetable OIL?????” which I learned was donated to Greg’s chicken wing cause, they turned out delicious. I could write a song about how much I love pancakes, but I don’t know the words to describe it.

We also went to see Godzilla, which was really good.

It really put me in the mood for some Jurassic Park. Too bad the new one’s not coming out anytime soon. Need more dinosaurs! Godzilla’s not a dinosaur, obviously, but he was a beast. I wish I could roar like Godzilla; I would scare the shit out of my cats.

Then we made some Vegan Dirt Cake, based off this recipe.

We substituted Trader Joe’s Joe Joe’s for Oreos, because Oreo’s always make my stomach ache. SO good. Tastes just like regular dirt cake.

Are you a fan of dirt cake?
Have you seen Godzilla?
Any movies in theater I should see?
