Oh Hey Friday {August 8, 2014}

Happy Friday all! Let's not spend a lot of time talking about the fact that I've been MIA on Fridays for about a gajillion months and just jump right into a few of my favorite things as of late, shall we?

This necklace. I didn't think I would find an everyday necklace to replace the love I have for the gold/citrine one my mom, sister & I found at a little street fair in NYC a few years ago, but I am totally infatuated with this one. I can't stop rockin' gold these days and add personalized in the mix...and you've sucked me in. Especially when the personalization has to do with my fave little man.

Planning bachelorette party ONE of TWO for my best gal. I mean, when you are that special, you get two parties in your honor. That definitely doesn't suck. Lingerie and handcuffs for days.

I just booked our hotel rooms at Hotel Deco in Omaha. I seriously am in love with this place. The decor. The old building it resides in. The restaurant downstairs. Nick and I had a little staycation here for our second anniversary and I fell in love. Can't wait to celebrate my girl Angie here in just a few short weeks.

Next up, finalizing the details of her Austin, TX party. I've never been, so if anyone has any tips, places to go/see...I'm all ears.


Not those kind of balls. Get yo head outta the gutter.

No, what I'm talking about are these balls. Energy balls. My SIL Morgan made me some (well, let's be honest they were for her but I snuck one...or two. Fine, three.) on our beach vacay last weekend and I couldn't get enough.

And since then I've made them and you all know I can't cook. They were easy AND delicious. Check them out.

I've been in a bit of a rut lately with my work wardrobe. Enter this dress. I'm in love. The fabric. The ruching. The length. And the exposed zipper that runs up the back of the dress. I adore it all. And it hugs in all the right places. Which ladies, we know that is good. So of course I'm glad I bought it in both black and green.

And finally, so I know that it's a bit biased and all to talk about how I think my son is just the cutest thing ever (well, he is) and how everything he does is fantastically amazing (it is), but can you look at this video and not fall in love. I mean, seriously. I think I've watched it no fewer than 10,000 times already.

Eat your heart out Jake Owen.

And have a great weekend, would ya?

Linking up with my farmer girl Karli for Oh Hey Friday and Amanda for Friday Favorites.


  1. We make those energy balls on a weekly basis...they are simply amazing!!!!

  2. 2 Bachelorette parties and one in Austin - so much fun!!! Love that little video he's adorable! Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. I've been in a work clothing rut lately, too... this always seems to happen toward the end of one season when I'm getting bored with my closet! Bring on the fall clothes, my favorite! Happy Friday! :)

  4. I'm in SUCH a work clothes rut! I'm kindof in this in-between stage where I've lost SOME weight, so a lot of clothes are too big- but my 'skinny' clothes are still too small, ha! I need to get past this rut and fit into more stuff again so I have options!!

  5. Love that necklace! Such a perfect reminder of a sweet memory!


  6. Visiting from the link up and also read your story on the Breastfeeding Diaries a few days ago! Love your blog...I followed you on all forums :) Cuz I'm a cray follower person! As for your five things...someone made those energy balls at work a few weeks ago and I legit ate like 5. So I'm pretty sure I had amazing energy! XO
