Oh hey Friday!

I didn't write a Friday post last week and I missed it.  I love sharing my random favorites with you on here we go!

ONE.  I'm headed to a wedding tomorrow (which makes 3 so far this more to go) and my hubby is in the wedding, so I'm excited to see him all dressed up in a tux :)  The wedding is outside and it looks like the weather is going to be PERFECT for it!  Now I just need to figure out what I'm going to wear...

TWO.  I'm hosting a Pinterest Party next month with my girlfriends and I'm super excited!  I haven't decided what we are going to make yet, so if you have suggestions let me know.  I'm thinking something that isn't too messy and doesn't take too long...send any ideas my way!


THREE.  ArtPrize started on Wednesday in Grand Rapids!  Here is the explanation of what ArtPrize is, right from their website:

For 19 days, three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, become an open playing field where anyone can find a voice in the conversation about what is art and why it matters.  Art from around the world pops up in every inch of downtown, and it's all free and open to the public.
What makes ArtPrize Unique?
Open Call for Artists and Venues: Anyone over the age of 18 can be an artist and any space within the ArtPrize district can be a venue.  Anyone can participate.
Independently Organized: The entire ArtPrize exhibition is independently organized by venues and artists who connect through
Public Vote and Juried Awards: Two grand prizes worth $400,000 and eight category awards worth $160,000.  Half decided by public vote, and half decided by a jury of art experts.

I love being able to walk around downtown on my lunch hour and check out some of this amazing art.  You can see some of my photos from last year's ArtPrize HERE.  You can see more about this year's event on the ArtPrize website HERE.

FOUR. I've been doing the Tone It Up Frisky Fall workouts this week and I have been S.O.R.E.  It's been a good kind of sore though.  I love that these workouts can be done at home with very little equipment.  Admiral always has to be near me when I'm working out, and I turned my back to adjust the volume on my laptop the other night during a workout, and he decided to make himself comfortable on my yoga mat.  He's such a sweetheart...always has to be close to me!

FIVE.  Last week, I came home to find HGTV Magazine in my mailbox.  My mom surprised me with a subscription :)  I really love that magazine, so if you haven't checked it out yet, you should!

Have a great weekend!

Linking up today with September Farm and The Farmer's Wife for oh hey Friday!

And Momfessionals for Friday Favorites!


  1. WOOOHOOO, keep rocking out those workouts, lady! So cute your dog wants to work out with you ;)

  2. A Pinterest party sounds like SO much fun!! I did a 30-day Pinterest challenge a couple of years ago, but making things with other people sounds way more fun. Also, I'm right there with you with guys in tuxes - so handsome!

  3. I love HGTV magazine too! I bought a subscription a couple years ago and still get excited every time it shows up.

    Admiral is so cute! I have a hard time exercising with the dogs in the house because they get excited and think I'm playing or try to lick my face if I'm on the floor. Or Abby will lay in the middle of my space and get in the way because she likes to be near me. LOL!

  4. Admiral is so regal and elegant-looking!

  5. Your mom is so sweet! I love watching HGTV and I didn't even realize they have a magazine too!! I will have to check that out. I hope you had fun at the weekend, and that the rest of your weekend is lovely and relaxing too. :)

    xo Always, Abby
