Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday everyone!

I will be a little MIA this weekend, as Hubby and I will be going to Dayton to visit his family!  So please excuse my absence...

In the mean time, here are my Friday Favorites!

1.  I finally bought those amazing green jean leggings from GAP this morning!  They were first on sale for 25% off, I resisted.  Then yesterday they went on sale for 30%, I still resisted.  Then today they went on sale for 40% off, and I gave in.  It's like GAP was mocking me.  I patiently waited, and they were almost half the price so I finally said what the heck and bought them!  I super excited for them to come in because I'm not sure how they are going to fit!  Crossing my fingers I dont have to exchange or return them!

2.  I just started reading Water for Elephants and I'm loving it so far!  I have been wanting to read this book for awhile now, and a friend at work finally gave me her copy.  I also really wanted to see the movie, so I'm glad I waited!


3.  My favorite grocery store is in Dayton called Dorothy Lane Market.  They have amazing everything!  It's a small grocery store but all their homemade food and baked goods are to die for.  My all time favorite thing to get there are a like million Laura's Cookies!  They are the best iced sugar cookies ever (they have almond extract in them...mmmm). I would be so fat if there was a Dorothy Lane Market close to me...also broke because its not the cheapest place...but definitely a highlight of going home to visit the in-laws!

4.  I'm loving the coral and turquoise color schemes in these bedrooms!

5.  I work out a lot at home in front of the TV.  I do a lot of workout videos because they're really convenient and sometimes a better workout for me rather than going to the gym!  With our cable company, we get Exercise TV which is great because I have access to all these different workout videos for free!  I don't always want to buy them because, inevitably, I get sick of the darn video within a couple months!  I just discovered Jillian Michaels Metabolism Boost video and I love it!  I have not been able to get through the whole video yet because I get sooo tired...its about an hour video...but such a good workout!  She does a ton of different circuits and they're all like running or jumping....for an hour....that's enough for me!  

Hope you all have a great weekend!

I sent my green ones back! I thought they came up too high and also were too tight and long! I wish they were more of an ankle length so you can wear them in the summer time. I think I just expected them to be more of a jean rather than a legging ya know? Just didn't look right on me....but im glad you got a pair! Post pics of how you wear them! :)
