Friday Faves!

When you lose you're whole post...and cry a little!!!  LOL  This was not my original post I had planned on because I had blogger open on two computers and I lost the completed version, so today's post is not only a little late but also kinda the Cliffs notes  version.  And now that I'm home from work, and it's St. Patrick's Day, I might be drinking and blogging!!  So there's that...Happy Friday!!


Hey Hey Everybody!!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!! This week wasn't bad one at all...lots of faves to go around!!

This day is one of my faves ever!!  I used to go big in my younger days, but the old lady in me is now just pretty content to wear my green, have a pint and call it a day.  I'm waiting on my Peapod Guy to deliver me some Guinness and  all the fixin's for my Ruben!  I also got a sweet surprise today at work when a thoughtful mom brought me an Irish Soda Bread, so tonight I'll have that for dessert!

A snow day (that really shouldn't have been!) and Two Dress Down Days definitely made this one of my favorite weeks!!  We dressed down for St. Patrick's Day today and Pi Day on Tuesday...really Leftover Pi Day, on Wednesday thanks to the snow day!  Any day I can wear my sneakers and jeans to school is just the best.
This is an awful pic, but my Pi Day shirt got rave reviews!  LOL

The This is Us Finale.  This episode was not one of my faves but since the series as a whole will go down as a favorite of this year, how could I not include it in my faves this week.  And Milo is totally one of my favorites!  So it's a win-win!

March Madness kicked off yesterday, and just for fun, my Blended Blog Buddy Alison, set up a basketball bracket for us!!  Head on over to read her blog post from our new Monday Random Stream series {here}!  I had so much fun making my picks and oddly enough was a little stressed!  But it's totally just for fun! I'm already having a great time following along!  I'm not the top of the class but so far I'm not a failure yet!

If you've read the blog for any amount of time, you know I love to shop! And that I tried to be shop free for these first three months of 2017, but that went out the window in February!  So I've been shopping!  BUT I got a really awesome deal this week!!  I bought two bathing suits from JCrew.  This suit, originally, $98 was on sale for 49.99 with an additional 25% off.  Then this one (super cute and different for me!), was $98 with 25% off!  Then I had a rewards card for $25 off!!  Basically I got two suits for less than the price of one!!  And I got money back from Ebates to boot!  (If you are not using Ebates, you really should!  Sign up here). I'm set for my trips in May and for the rest of the summer!!  Oh and a bonus: Swim is free ship and returns!  Fingers Crossed I LOVE these though!

Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Wear some green, pour a pint and do a jig!!

Linking up for Friday Favorites with Erika and the girls today!


  1. So sad when you lose a post for sure but happy about a super cute swimsuit!

  2. I can relate to losing a post...and especially frustrating when the post was finished. Not nice. I have wondered if you were having snow days or just trudging through despite the snow. Hurrah for snow days and dress down days. At least all that snow is good for something.

    That bow-tie bathing suit is so elegant the kind of suit that never sees the water but that one wears when sipping drinks and draping oneself on the chaise lounge poolside. You will look amazing in it. Can't wait for pics if you are ever free of snow and winter.

  3. I've lost posts before and it's the worst! Love your Pi shirt. Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Sorry about losing your posts but hurrah for your swim suit purchases! Have a great weekend.

  5. I love that pi day shirt!! And I agree, I love This Is Us, but I wanted a little more from the finale. Next year can't come soon enough!

  6. Ugh...that always sucks! I haven't watched the last two episodes of this is us...I need to catch the heck up! That halter is precious...I'm looking at ordering a suit from there right now similar to the strapless. Great deals!


Thanks so much for taking the time to post comments! They make me smile so big!
