Friday Favorites

Happy Friday y'all! I am so excited for this weekend! We have a fall festival at a friend's church tonight and a friend's housewarming party tomorrow evening, plus hopefully lots of doing absolutely nothing!

Favorite song: 
Crash My Party-Luke Bryan

I just think this is the cutest song! Plus it's country and apparently I'm on a country kick right now.

Favorite recipe: 
I made a double batch of these last night for work and to take to the fall festival tonight. OMG nom nom nom! These are SO good and really pretty quick and easy, once you get past all the slicing of apples and making streusel. (Does anyone else kind of hate making streusel? It's always so tedious to slowly work all of the cold butter into the flour and sugar, and feels like it takes FOREVER. Clearly patience is not one of my virtues)

Favorite outfit: 
I think I will be wearing this, or some variation of it, once a week. These are the famous 47 cent pants with a chambray tunic, my new scarf from Charming Charlie's, and a belt. SUPER comfortable but really cute! I got tons of compliments on it, and one person said I looked really slender in it (Um, yes please!). I'm no fashionista and feel totally lost when it comes to putting outfits together a lot of the time, so whenever I put something together like this and really feel great in it, I usually wear it A LOT. Plus since I got those pants I had been plotting for how I could get away with wearing them to work since they basically feel like PJ's, and I pulled it off!

Favorite exercise:
Running! I am really trying to work on my endurance and speed! Because I have granny knees I can't run for too many days in a row, I have to give them a break. But I'm hoping to be able to run at least a couple of days a week and build from there. 

Favorite funnies: 
Classic Chandler
Friends don't let friends skip leg day:

Does this happen to anyone else? I swear my hair looks amazing when I just throw it up in a ponytail or clip while I'm straightening it, and then I try to recreate it for when I'm ready to leave the house and it looks awful!

Have a lovely weekend and link up with us!

  1. Those bars are amazing, so delicious! Love your outfit!

  2. Oh Chandler - he is just so quick witted - well the writers on the show were LOL! Love your outfit and I so hope you'll be enjoying the Fl/GA festivities this weekend!

  3. Those bars look delicious! That hair, makeup and clothes sketch is so true!


  4. I am a mess whenever I have to leave the house. And the more people I need to see, the worse I look. Because of course it's that way.

    I want to like country music. And some songs I do. But overall, I just can't get into it. Which makes me sad because it seems like those concerts would be so much fun.

  5. that outfit is super cute, and you look fabulous in it! I definitely have granny knees as well, womp womp!

  6. That last picture is so, so true. Your bars looks real1 good! I cannot cut straight foer the life of me. Mine come out all wonky. Love Luke Bryant. Have a great weekend!

  9. I love your outfit! And I have Granny knees too. I take Glucosamine and it helps tremendously.

  10. I love that great feeling when you hit on a fabulous outfit combination - it looks super cute on you!

  11. I love Luke Bryan!! I want to see him in concert so badly!

  12. Haha I can totally relate to how I look when I stay in vs out. What does it always work out that way? I understand the hair, because humidity can be a real drag...but the make up and the way my clothes fit? What gives?!?! Those apple bars look yummy!! Cute outfit!
