Friday Favorites Vol 5

Happy Friday Y’all!! This has been a week from hell. Last Friday, I wrote about getting ready to prepare for Hurricane Harvey and can I just say that I am glad it has come and gone. This storm was no joke and it caused far more damage than anyone here in TX thought it would. It is completely heartbreaking to see all the families that have lost everything they own, some losing their lives. Β Despite this tragedy I am so proud of everyone coming together to help one another in a time of need. God bless all of those individuals who put their lives in danger in order to rescue people,pets,etc. We were very blessed to have not had any damage to our home. Now we hoping that the other two hurricanes that are forming, do not come our way (not that we want it to hurt anyone else but Harvey was enough to deal with for a long time). Enough of my ramblings about the Hurricane…let’s get on to much happier things, like my favorites for this week.

+Using hastags on Instagram is everything. I love that Kallie shows you how to find and use local hastags in this post.

+ I did this workout for my arms the other day, and my arms were on fire!! Getting get rid of that jiggle.


+I love this video of this mom dog and her pup. How stinking cute!!!



+I am so ready for Fall and this outfit has me swooning!


+This shirt from Fashion Cupcake here is so right, especially when I get home from work or the weekend.


That’s all I have for this week as far as what I’ve been loving!

    Yes, it is hard to look back on my thoughts only a week ago. Living in Texas, even though I wasn’t affected by Harvey all that much, emotionally I have been torn up about all those in it’s wake.
    However, my favorite thing from the week, has been seeing Texas (and others from outside the state) come together and help each other!

    Hope this coming week is less eventful in that way.

    I’m glad you’re safe and that there hasn’t been any damage to your home! One of my favorites from this week was a new Kickstarter for adorable kids watches from Arvo. For some reason I can’t paste the link, but definitely Google them because they’re super cute! I hope you have a great weekend!
