Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!! Here’s something I haven’t done in a long, long time…Friday Favorites! I used to share my favorite random things of the week and I decided I want to get back into doing that. So without further ado…

  1. My DAD!


Today is my dad’s birthday! And how could he not be on my Friday Favorites? Dad, you are such a light in our family! You are a true example of what it means to not only be an amazing dad, but a follower of Christ. You are also a wonderful example of the type of love Danica and I should expect from a husband one day. You are the best thing for mom and she is the best thing for you. I am so blessed to have such a strong example of love and marriage in my life. You are the rock of the family, dad! I love you forever!

2. Spray Tans by Lindsay at Solar Connection

I do NOT tan at all. Like, at all. All I do is burn, get more freckles, and go back to being pale. But this summer, I wanted to actually be tan! I started getting spray tans at Solar Connection and I love it! I will probably stop getting them towards the beginning of September but for now, being a couple shades darker is THE BEST.

3. My Bison and Kale Salad


I posted this simple, paleo recipe yesterday and it is seriously so good! I ate it 3 days in a row. I even ate it for lunch AND dinner the first day I made it.

4. Speaking of Paleo… eating Paleo is a favorite!

I have been eating Paleo for about a month now and let me tell you…I already notice a huge difference in how I am feeling! I wanted to cut out a couple things from my diet to see if it improved my digestion, bloating stomach, etc. Going Paleo has not only gotten rid of any bloating I was having but I feel so good! Seriously. My mood has drastically improved (just ask Barrett hah!) and I feel 1000x more confident in my skin. I have not lost any weight (I don’t weigh myself but all my clothes still fit!) but I feel a lot more confident in the skin I am in. I still have days where I eat a piece of bread or a couple bites of wedding cake but I just chug a ton of water and move on with my day!

5. Suits


Barrett and I are probably super late to jump on the Suits bandwagon but we LOVE this show. We have been watching it for a couple months now, slowly working our way into season 5 right now, and we cannot get enough. It’s funny, has a little romance, and deals with high-profile lawyers. I LOVE IT. You can watch it through Amazon Prime! I recommend getting into a good show or book with your significant other. It gives us something to look forward to on a weeknight (and sometimes weekends) and it is also a super cheap date. You don’t have to spend a ton of money to enjoy yourselves. Some of my favorite dates are the ones snuggled up on the couch with a pint of PB ice cream, Suits, and Barrett excitedly saying, “Just one more episode!”

Until next week friends! Let me know if you have an favorite things going on in your life!
