Friday Favs: A short, but LONG week!

Oh my goodness gracious, I am so glad it's Friday! Y'all, this week has been anything but "normal" and I need this 3 day weekend coming up to recuperate and regroup!

We had a surprise day off on Monday due to ice (I live in Alabama, which I realize is not the most winter equipped state, so yes, we do have ice days!) You would think having one day off this week would make the week go by faster, but I think it had the opposite affect! It's felt like the week has lasted forever. I didn't go to sleep on Monday night until well after midnight due to the national championship and then I had a workshop on Wednesday, so it's just been one of those weeks where there is a lot going on and you can't get much done!

While this week might have been extremely busy and stressful, I did FINALLY close on my land!!! Yay! (Insert dancing girl emoji times 100!) Y'all, I am so excited to start the process of building my house. I know it's going to be SO incredibly stressful, but I am so excited! I've been pinning like crazy and I cannot wait to actually start the construction process. I'm sure it'll just fly by and I'll be in my new house in no time! ;)

I've somehow rediscovered The Vampire Diaries and the obsession is real, friends! I originally watched the first four seasons and then never caught up. I've decided to start over from the beginning because I can't remember a thing and try and watch the whole series. I'm still in the middle of season one, but how fun is Damon? I was always a fan of his and not Stephen's. There was just something about Stephen I didn't like. 

So I did a poll while I was grocery shopping (because I HATE grocery shopping and this makes it a little more bearable/fun!) I was shocked that almost 30% of y'all advised me to be good and NOT splurge on this ice cream. And then I bought it and understood exactly what y'all were trying to tell me. Y'all this ice cream should be outlawed because I'm pretty sure I ate all 6 chocolate ice cream cups in 2 days. I don't think I've ever eaten chocolate ice cream that was as good as this! 

And the unhealthy eating continued with ramen noodles and...

the best and most unhealthy pizza in the world. It definitely wasn't my best week as far as food was concerned. I can't wait to go to the grocery store and buy some food that will make me feel better because I have felt awful this week after eating all this junk! Sometimes a week of really unhealthy eating is just what you need to kick your butt into gear!

Loving this color and formula!

The Golden Globes were on Sunday night and I loved every minute of it! I just love award season and it was especially exciting seeing all the support for the Times Up movement. I wore black to show my support! 

How great was Oprah's speech?? Oh my goodness! I've never been a huge fan of Oprah until now. She is so inspiring!

Did you check out my travel post from Monday that featured this pretty pink tote? I'm not much of a traveler, but I'm hoping to change that in 2018! 

And then this happened. What in the world. Alabama wasn't even suppose to make it to the playoffs after we lost to Auburn and then by some miracle we got in. And then we beat Clemson. And then we WON! 

The game didn't go off until 11:30 because it went into overtime and then I was wide awake so I didn't fall asleep until way after midnight. Needless to say, Tuesday was ROUGH! 

R.S. Grey released the cover to her newest book that comes out in February and I can't wait to read it! If you have Kindle Unlimited, you have to check out RS Grey's romance books. They are such fun quick reads! You can check them all out here!

I attempted to read the newest John Green book this week. It wasn't successful. More to come in my January book review. Have you read this one? What did you think?

I'm currently reading this and having better luck! It's a cute story of a girl who comes to LA to make it as an actress. You can add it to your Goodreads shelf here. Friend me on Goodreads here.  

I also attempted this one this week and didn't have any luck with it either. Such a shame too because the cover is so pretty! Maybe someone else will have better luck than I did with this one! You can check out the synopsis here


Also obsessed. 

So that was a bit of my week! I'd love to hear/read your favorites from your week! :) 
Happy weekend!
