It’s Friday, it’s Friday, it’s Friday! Yes!! For some reason I have been exhausted and lacking energy this week and am seriously looking forward to the weekend. Plus I have some fun plans in the works for tomorrow, including a big brunch with about twelve of my girlfriends 🙂 It should be a ton of fun!

But anyway, it’s Friday and you know what that means…it’s time for Favorite Things Friday! So without further ado, here are some of my favorite photos from the week!


Favorite Sip

On Thursday this week I treated myself to a skim pumpkin spice late from Starbucks. I hardly ever drink coffee (maximum once every two weeks) and usually I would just get a small hazlenut coffee with skim milk and splenda (boring, but delicious). However when my coworker told me she had a hankering for a pumpkin spice late I couldn’t resist! It was delicious and warmed up my chilly morning. Great choice!

Favorite Bite

This week I rediscovered a long-lost love…Boca burgers!! I hadn’t had one of these in forever so last time I was at the store I picked up a box of Bruschetta Boca Burgers (so good!). I topped mine with some fresh basil, tomatoes, and a sprinkling of shredded mozzarella cheese. I ate it on a whole wheat bun with some crispy baked sweet potatoes fries. Such a great dinner! Why did I ever stop eating Boca burgers??

Favorite Movie


Every now and again Fabio and I will decide that regular weeknight TV is boring and we will pour some wine and watch a movie On Demand. This week we were flipping through the movies and we saw that Black Swan was playing. Neither of us had seen it before but we knew it won a ton of awards so we gave it a try. WOW. It was incredible. It was beautifully done and really caused you to think, which I love. One of my favorite movies is Fight Club, just because you have to really puzzle over the plot, and I thought Black Swan’s plot was vaguely similar. It was really good and I want to watch it again!

Favorite Book


I also finished a really great book this week, The Other Boleyn Girl. It was truly a fantastic book and I really enjoyed reading about the crazy Boleyn family. I owe you guys a book review for it (and for Sarah’s Key, which I finished a few weeks ago. And Insurgent, which I read months ago. Oops) so maybe I can get that out of the way this weekend. It might be my favorite book out of all the ones I have read recently so if you haven’t read this I recommend it!

Favorite New Accessory

Aren’t these red suede moccasins perfect for fall? I got them last weekend during my trip to Marshall’s for about $30. They are so fun and I can already picture them with some fun fall-colored tops and leopard print belts! Ah! I am loving fall colors right now!

Favorite Picture of Jack

This is the look Jack gives me when I am getting ready for work. My heart always melts when he looks at me like this and I always stop for a second to pet him and coo over him (this happens like every 2 minutes when I am getting ready lol). Think how much faster I would get ready for work if I didn’t have this lovable pooch giving me googly eyes the whole time! Haha!

Favorite Treat

I know I talked about them on Monday but these nutella cookies that I made based off of this recipe (only I used whole wheat flour) are so good. I have been trying not to eat too many, but it’s so hard! I made them really small so it’s so easy to just “have a small one.” Haha I think I have eaten 6 since Monday. Ugh! I am trying to make Fabio eat them all or I will have to give them away. They are just too good! Lol 🙂

So anyway, that’s all for this week’s Favorite Things Friday! What were some of your favorite moments from the week??

  1. Jack is so adorable!!!! Ha Ha, love that you are trying to make Fabio eat some of your cookies or you’ll have to give em away. I do the exact same way. If I know the hubs won’t help me out, I’ll make him take them into work just so I don’t feel tempeted. I have no self control.. sorryimnotsorry.

    Have a wonderful time with your girlfriends this weekend girl!

  2. A) LOVE those shoes! B) Pumpkin spice lattes are the best. They seriously mean fall is here to me. I WISH I could get away with drinking coffee only once every few days! I’m like a 2 cups a day kind of girl. It’s a BAD habit.
