Friday Favorites (5/29/15)

Happy Friday Friends -

Last night was such a lazy night. No karate, and yeah, there was housework to do - - but a night of hubby and I binge watching Penny Dreadful - PRICELESS. anyone watch Penny Dreadful on Showtime? The show is in it's second season, and it has Josh Hartnett in it - He is amazing eye candy, I have always thought so.

No, no Mr. Hartnett, one smile and I say yes.
Wait - - why does this look familiar.... Why am I so attracted to this?
Hmmmm.... OH yeah husband wears a similar outfit to our Steampunk adventures. mmmmmm Long haired men. Anyway, I digress.

 Let's recap this weeks favorite things - 


Yesterday, while looking for a lyric pic from "The Voice Within" I happened upon Christina Aguilera's entire Stripped album. Love her or hate her - that album was really big back in 2002... the year before I graduated High School - So, not going to lie, at work, I popped my earbuds in and streamed the entire album on YouTube.I mean, how many of these songs made the top 20? So - I geeked out on it. 

Has anyone tried these amazing bits of craisin awesomeness? A handful really gives me the sweetness and the crunch I need to satisfy a snack craving. I have the cranberry almond at home now, but I am going to see if I can find the Granola covered ones today when I go grocery shopping.  I highly recommend these.

This week, during one of our martial arts classes - we started class with 50 jumping jacks - without stopping - at a moderate pace. Now normally, after 20, I am ready to take a breather. But, I kept my head in the game, watched those trouble areas bounce in the mirror (motivation, duh) and pushed through all 50. No joke, I felt exhausted and impressed. Is this a little victory? Yes, but it's mine.


This one - you know what's going to happen - and you are still laughing.  


because I've read way too many Facebook diatribes this week 

And Turtles Vs. Cats....



  1. Stripped was such a classic album. I was recently listening the Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway and felt the same way!

  2. Oh my - that little girl jumping on her dad - I have a feeling the kids stopped there! Happy Friday! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Oh my goodness I LOVED that album. There's a free XM radio promo going on right now and I've been listening to their 90's and Pop 2k channels that have me jamming out to albums like this all the live long day lol.

  4. Loved the strip album and still jam out every now and then, I just gotta!!! I am laughing too hard at the cat vs turtle gifs!!! Hilarious! Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. LOL at the turtles! And congrats on the jumping jacks - having many bouncy parts myself, I'm impressed and applaud you!

  6. I am definitely guilty of restarting the dryer.
