Friday Favorites!


True to schedule I’ve got my next video ready. This one contains my current favorite things – all purchased by me. Not one thing in the video is sponsored. I’m totally open to a Bath & Body Works or It’s a 10 haircare sponsorship though… just putting that out there in the universe! ; )

I don’t know about you, but I am really excited that the weekend is right around the corner. Adam is going to a wrestling show tomorrow night with one of his buddies so I have the whole night to myself.

Is it bad that I’m looking forward to that? I think I’ll do my long run right before sunset and then kick back on the couch with a good romantic comedy. Let me know if you have any suggestions. My favorite romantic comedy of all time is Sweet Home Alabama.


Tomorrow might be a Reese Witherspoon kind of night!

I haven’t totally decided what I want to do about my long run this weekend since I have the Cape Coral Half Marathon coming up next weekend. I’m not racing Cape Coral for a PR, but I do have a goal time in mind. I’m definitely not doing a full taper but I might keep my long run in the 8 mile range instead of 10.

Will that even make a difference? Probably not!

What are you up to this weekend?
Current favorite GU flavor?

    I sometimes get excited for alone nights too! I think you should watch a Christmas romantic comedy… How about While You Were Sleeping? That’s one of my favorites! I have to watch your vid when I get home- can’t wait!

    I know what you mean about being excited to just have the evening to yourself.

    I had the other night alone & I binge watched Parenthood on Netflix while I painted my nails.

    Tomorrow I’ve got the day to myself too, got a bit of Christmas shopping to do. & an ugly Christmas sweater to find for a party. But I’m much more efficient when I shop alone. So I’m glad I’ll be able to grab a peppermint mocha & just bust it out after my long run in the morning!

    I never mind a night or two to myself! I told Rick “as soon as you go skiing I am going to watch Love Actually”. That is my favorite holiday movie!

    I love alone nights! We are in full Christmas mode around here. The kiddo & I just watched Elf, the Grinch is up next. The Home Alones will no doubt play sometime soon (I could skip these). The Holiday is my sister’s favorite, she loves Kate Winslet. Serendipity for sure cuz I loooove Cusack. I just realized you didn’t say Christmas chick flicks but ’tis the season!

    I love when Matt is gone for a night once in a blue moon. It’s really nice to have the house to myself once in awhile, and then when he comes home it’s even better because I missed him!

    I love that movie too and am a sucker for Rom Coms πŸ™‚ Have a great movie night!
