friday favorites: the oh my rodeo one

Favorite Song
Radio by Darius Rucker.
Rodeo starts this weekend so geeeeeeeeet reeeeeeeeady, Teeeeeeeeexas!
*I still have no idea what Rodeo really is. I'm just acting as excited as every other Texan around me is acting.

Favorite Food
Have you picked up on the fact that holiday candy is my jam? My jim jam, yummy yum favorite thing ever? Well today I would like to introduce you to my favorite Easter candy. 

Ugh, sorry brb gotta go grab a handful before I can keep typing. Too. Weak. 
While I run and grab another couple, you plan your next outing to Walgreens or CVS or Kroger or wherever the heck ya can get yo'self some of these. 

Favorite Pilates Move
Pilates Single Straight Leg Stretch
We got behind last week when I didn't post with our Ab Series of 5 we've been practicing this month. Am I using the right pronoun? We?? And if you haven't been practicing, might I suggest stop reading this sentence and dropping to the floor and doing your single and double leg stretch. 

Because today we are moving on to Single Straight Leg Stretch
Pro-tips: all the same as the others. Imagine your belly button sinking deeper towards your spine with every switch of the leg. Keep your chin off of your chest. Find that little "kiss" of your glute when you leg is hovering over the floor. 

Favorite Gift
Remember when I/everyone that participated in the Christmas Blogger Exchange with Olya and Mattie begged for a Valentine's gift exchange?
Galentine's blogger exchange
Great success. Ashley from The Wandering Weekenders (who also lives in Houston and probably is excited about Rodeo) gave me the best Galentine's Valentine's gifts ever. Do you know how I long I have wanted the Essie color Ballet Slippers? Because hello, ballerina tattooed on my body over here, but for whatever reason I have never purchased said needed Essie color. Which Ashely obviously knew when she sent me that nail polish along with a bunch of other presents that perfectly define the word, "cutesies."

Favorite Not Favorite Moment Of The Week
I've been having some tests run for some stomach issues I've been having recently. Note: stomach issues is not code for I'm pregnant, so sorry 'bout ya. A-n-y-ways, there I was yesterday on the way to the studio to teach post-doctor appointment. On the way to the studio to teach post-doctor appointment with no exercise pants to change into. On the way to the studio to teach post-doctor appointment with no exercise pants to change into, and a must-be-refrigerated bag of probiotics and a sterile bag with empty tubs meant for my future stool samples. 


Don't worry, guys, grown-up Emily managed to buy exercise pants from the studio, put the probiotics in the studio fridge, and carry around my empty stool sample containers all afternoon. Yolo. 

FML. YOLO. TMI and all that, right? 
Still stuck the TMI part?

Happy Friday!
Linking up with Karli and Amanda.

I'm so excited that it's finally rodeo time too! I actually thought it was pretty amusing that the debate was last night, and most of Houston probably could care less about it because this weekend is the cook-off!
I'm so glad that you loved all of your gifts! Essie always has some of the best colors, and I totally knew that you needed ballet slippers ;) I really hope that Olya and Mattie do another one! I hope you have a great weekend!

If it's Rodeo time... (which should always be capitalized in Houston BTW) then you must have boots! Photo please! xoxo

I haven't tried the Hershey Eggs but dangit now you have me craving the whopper "robin eggs" like nobodies business!!!!! You're killing the Pilates girl! Why isn't Houston closer? I want to come take a class!!!!

Also, your Galentines gift is the cutest. I love that pillow!

Mattie @ Northwest Native said...

Wait...are the Hershey's eggs as good as the Cadbury Mini Eggs? Because those things are my weakness.
Umm I want fun Essie colors. Also YOUR PILLOW SAYS "let's cuddle" and I didn't realize that before and that's amazing. Ashley done good.
