Friday Faves

Linking up with Andrea, Erika, and Narci to share my faves from the week!

My bestie, Meg, had a Silpada party for me this week. I got to meet some of her awesome friends, ate some of her awesome food, and made some awesome sales. She's going to get some awesome jewelry too! :) 
P.S. How many times can you saw awesome in one paragraph? My writing teachers would be cringing right now. 

P.S.S. Silpada is having an awesome (see, there I go again...) sale this week. From now to Sept. 30th, take advantage of the BOGO event! Great pieces for great prices!

I've been taking a hip-hop dance class lately, which definitely deserves it's own post. Lemme just say, I have NO rhythm. I cant dance. I'm out of shape. But I'm loving dancing to the Wobble, Chicken Noodle Soup, Tootsie Roll, and the Whip & Nae Nae every Monday night. 

I'll take a McCafe Caramel Vanilla Iced Coffee over a Starbucks any day of the week, and twice on Sunday. It is heaven in my mouth. 

It turned fall this week, and while we've had 85-90 degree weather, today is looking much better. I love this cool weather that's coming. 

How cute is this little gold polka-dot pumpkin? It was only $3 from Target and I desperately need to go back and get more.  

What are your faves from the week?

5 Dinner Guests

So today, Andrea wants to know what 5 dinner guests I would invite to dinner. Well this is just easy.

Let me first start out by saying I obviously wouldn't be cooking for this dinner party. Since everyone I'm going to invite is rich and famous, we'll assume one of them will cook or have it catered. Or we'll just have Papa Johns pizza...cause who doesn't like pizza, amiright?

1. Amy Schumer

She's my new fave. She is probably the funniest person I've ever met (let's pretend). Every single interview I've ever seen of Amy has had me rolling. She's so sarcastic and dry and that's so me! We'd have the best time. 

2. Jennifer Lawrence

And I'd then have to invite her new bff, my fellow Kentuckian, JLaw. Yes, I realize it's been awhile since she's been everyone's best friend, but girl is good. She's into jokes and making fun of people and hello? Have you met me? But then we'd argue over UK vs. Loserville...ahem...Louisville, and the mashed potatoes would be a flyin. Full force food fight. 

3. Liam Hemsworth

Since J knows Liam, she can bring him for me. We will sit beside each other at dinner; he'll find me really funny and charming; we'll fall in love and live happily ever after. Done. I mean again, have you met me? He couldn't resist. 

But then I'd only be able to comfortably eat once piece of pizza, so that wouldn't work. It's Papa Johns. That's at least a 3 slicer. Let's just hope he's drunk and won't notice. Or at least hope he like's a girl that can eat. Mmmmk?

4. Channing Tatum

Our evening entertainment would be Magic Mike. No talking. Just dancing. Thank you. And if he wanted to bring his friends? That's ok too. 

5. Fallon Timberlake 2016

My next guests would be a duo, because you can't have one without the other. 

Their sole purpose would be to lip sync battle one another for Amy, Jennifer, Liam and myself. Who doesn't love seeing their battles? They kill it. 

Those are my top dinner guests. As you can tell, I like funny people that can sing and dance. And look good. And be my future baby daddy. That's all.

Viva Las Vegas

I may or may not have went to Las Vegas over Labor Day weekend. And I may or may not have had a fabulous time. It was very low-key and to be honest, I really liked it that way! So not typical Las Vegas, but who says I'm typical anyway.

Be ready for lots of pictures, I have tons to share.

Kyle, Meg, and I on the plane. The first of many many selfies. 

Luckily Southwest had in-flight tv for free. Yes!!! Meg and I catching up on some Don't Be Tardy...

There's a woman (autocorrect fail) in colonial clothing churning butter. There's something they're not telling us!!!!!
Name that movie. 

That guy is famous!

He's Tuc Watkins. Or as I called him, "Crazy David from One Life to Live". And from Desperate Housewives and lots of others.  Score one for Melanie. 

First night was spent gambling in the hotel. I'm not a big gambler. I'd rather spend my money on mall stuff. 

View from my room at the Aria. 

2 days spent at the pool. Glorious!

I'll take a Strawberry Pina Colada, please. At $20 bucks for a small, it was my only one. Darn it. I'm cheap.  

Night 2 selfie

Dinner at Lupos before seeing Michael Jackson ONE show. 

With my bestie, Meg

My first taste of Tiramisu. It was just ok. 
Waiting for MJ ONE. Excellent show. Go see it. Worth the $$$, for sure!

Breakfast at the patisserie. I got the Nutella Crepe. Holy smokes. It was amazing!
Meg kept winning at the slots. 

And I kept losing. So I started taking selfies instead. 

Getting ready for Night 3. I used Big Sexy Hair Spray and Hold. I sprayed. It held. Wowzer!

Dinner at Lemongrass Thai restaurant.
It was good. Better than the local China King Buffet, but still kinda the same. Eh.  

In The Wynn. Isn't this a gorgeous spot? With my pregnant friend, Meg.
Waiting for Le Reve to begin. 

A cirque du soleil show in water. Amazing! Go see it.

I love these shows!

My very first French Macaron from the hotel's Jean Philippe Patissarie.

It was delicious! Holy smokes, I want more!

On the way to the airport. Bye Vegas. See ya next year!

If I...Could Go Anywhere On Vacation

If I could choose one place to go on vacation, all expenses paid, I'd choose Fiji. 

Look at the clear, blue water. 

The little huts standing over the ocean. 

This is paradise.
