Friday Favorites-Week of 1/7/13

Well kids that flu epidemic that is sweeping the nation has landed itself right inside my body.

Thankfully my doctor put me on medicine as soon as I called with my symptoms yesterday so I am hoping to be back to my usual self by tomorrow because I have my final round of bridesmaids dress shopping! I cannot believe all 10 girls will have picked their dresses by tomorrow afternoon. Wedding planning is in full swing and everything is happening so fast.

My bridal shower is booked for May at my favorite wine restaurant in town. I didn't want it to be a surprise so I could help plan/organize the event. I guess you could say I am a control freak of sorts. My dress has been picked and purchased, the registries have been made and the boys tuxes have been picked.
There is still so many things to do but we are doing great for our September 1st wedding date and I am so excited to walk down the aisle and say " I Do."

Whoops this turned into a wedding post, but it's supposed to be my Friday favorites.

Time for me to go back to bed
Have a great weekend :)

Favorite Clean Snack Recipe: Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt

Katy from Girl Gone Country has hit the nail on the head with this recipe.
I ate this during the PLL winter premiere on Tuesday night and it was the perfect, non-guilty TV snack.
PS: I made mine with plain non-fat Chobani

Favorite Fashion DIY: Sick of wearing the same sweaters year after year?
Have no fear the DIY fairy is here!
{I should avoid rhyming in the future}
If you want to achieve this no sew, cut out look you can watch this detailed tutorial here
In under 3 minutes you'll have the cutest shirt, FOR FREE!

Favorite Birthday Party Idea: Cupcakes anyone?

This is so cute it kills me.
I have a soft spot for the movie UP but not because of it's story line. It's because the characters names are Carl and Ellie, and on their mailbox it looks like Carl & Eddie.

 Eddie and I like to think this is us...I wanted to photoshop the mailbox and incorporate it into our save the dates/invites but I honestly have no idea how to.

Favorite Must Have Clothing Item: I die.

I really really really want this spandex hooded jacket from It's priced at $52 which isn't too steep and they have only S and L left but I cannot justify spending the money right now.
I can see this being worn in fall, winter and spring, it's too adorable not to.
Does anyone want to buy it for me? I'll love you forever.

Favorite Recipe Redo: Sweet Potato Pizza Crust

Tina over at Carrots N' Cake posted this recipe on Monday and was instantly craving a slice...or three.
I like to think sweet potatoes and I are bff so this pizza would be a huge hit in my belly

Favorite Birthday Gift Wish: My birthday may be less then 2 months away but that doesn't mean I'm not already thinking of gifts I'd like under my birthday tree!

The Michael Kors iPhone 5 clutch wallet.
This is the perfect gift for me. When I run errands or head out for a quick lunch break all I grab is my phone and my wallet, why not have a 2 in 1?
Also it's quite the coincidence that it only comes in two colors, and one of them is PINK.

Favorite Sweat: Earlier this week I did this circuit in the comfort of my own home

All you need are weights and some motivation then you're good to go!

Favorite Quote: 
For obvious reasons ;)

Favorite Mani: Polka Dots

 I just love this french inspired manicure.

Favorite Haircut: I may do this post wedding

But I have become so attached to my long hair I don't know if I could bring myself to do it!

Favorite Jam: .....and while we're at it lets just say favorite hottie

Daylight by Maroon 5 and the hottie is none other then Mr. Adam Levine

you're welcome

Favorite Fitgear: Sports bra HRM from Lululemon

I need about 4 of these please. This would save me so much frustration with keeping the HRM strap from moving around during my runs or cardio classes.

Favorite Adult Drink: Pear Vanilla Cocktail

I'll take two of these please :)
