friday favorites: the thrown together one

Do you ever sit around and wonder how it's already April 8? Like really wonder how in the heck we went from January to April so quickly? Or hows about how we went from January 1998 to April 2016 so quickly. Or January 2000 to April 2016. Or January 1989 to April 2016. 

Riddle me those and then read on. 

Favorite Song
Windows Are Rolled Down by Amos Lee
This song speaks to me. I don't know what that really means, but let's pretend I'm a deep person with deep feelings about this song. Keep calm and listen to this song. 

Favorite Food
We've got a friend from Charleston in town this weekend which means HELLO, Texas BBQ. Which means hello, food baby. Which means hello, worth it. Worth it? Is it?
YAH, it is. 

Favorite Texas Thing
Texas Bluebonnets are a for real thing...who would have thunk it?
There's this corner near where we live that is covered in bluebonnets. Now take the image you have pictured in your head of a bluebonnet covered corner and multiply that times five or twenty. People go gaga over this bluebonnet infested corner. Families frolicking through the blue babies with their own babies, dogs running around sneezing, tripods and professional cameras set up everywhere. Or actually more like Snapchat open on all the phones. Anyways then there is Freddie taking classy shots without us in it like this winner. How's that for a non-Snapchat pic?

Favorite Pilates Move
Shoulder Bridge.
Let me guess...you sit at a desk, text on your phone, carry a heavy bag or purse, and lounge on your couch all week long. Here is your move to strengthen your booty, give balance to your body by working the posterior chain, and improve posture. Now get on the floor and booty bridge it out!
Pro-tips: think the strength of the glutes lift the hips up vs. the abdominals (or any other muscles) doing the work. Only go up to your shoulders---you should still be able to move your head and neck. Pull that belly button down to your spine. Ain't nobody got time for lower back pain.
Don't splay your ribs and lift your chin like I'm doing...

Favorite Snuggle Buddy
This dude!
Ignore every gross thing about this picture and just focus on LUPE. Snugglin' buggin' on my neck. 

Erm, and Freddie...

Happy Friday!
Linking up with Karli and Amanda

I keep seeing bloggers talk about the gorgeous blue flowers and I'm kinda jealous I live so far from them! Go back and make Freddie get pics of you frolicking in them ;)

Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders said...

I don't know how it went from January to April so fast either! It's crazy! I don't want it to be hot just yet! Bluebonnets are seriously the best! I'm hoping that I'll be able to convince Chris to take some pictures this weekend! The other awesome thing about Texas is also the food! A food baby is totally worth it to show your friend how awesome everything is here!

LOL about the bluebonnets. I can imagine everyone and their Mother trying to get a photo op. I lived in Texas all of last year and I don't think I ever saw any. Wonder where I was lol? And a bbq food baby is always worth it in my opinion. I live in SC now, gotta show them the real deal. (We never eat bbq here lol.) xxx

No, I'm totally with you on this time thing. Like, 2009 (the year I graduated HS) seems like 3 years ago. Yet, I'm turning 25 in two months. At this rate, I'll probably blink and be 80. As always, your pilates moves make me wanna be all flexible and agile. *sigh*

xo,

These Texas Bluebonnets are so pretty... and since being here, we've still haven't tried Texas BBQ. At least not a legit place you wait in line for. We need to get it together!

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...
