Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I’m super pumped because today I get to see my hunk of burnin love- woo! I’m looking forward to him smelling like @$$ when I first kiss him, doing loads of laundry, and secksie time cuddling 😉 Anyways, I’m linking up with Heather from Housewife Glamour today to show you some of the things I’ve been loving lately. Check out her blog- she’s into fitness, nutrition, and has some great beauty tips! Here we go:

Housewife Glamour


 SIRIUS XM (and more specifically, Howard Stern) – After TJ and I moved to El Paso and got married a couple of years ago (both done within a week span, haha), he got me a subscription for Sirius. Going from fiancé to wife has many perks 😉 He had a subscription for quite so he basically added me on his account for a minimal fee, but it’s seriously awesome. I especially enjoy Howard Stern (channels 100 and 101)- he has the best interviews, most obnoxious topics, and catch myself laughing out loud. If you have a long commute- invest in this!


This may sound super odd, but he reminds me of my dad sometimes with his laugh and rants about idiotic people…Anyways, he had a great interview with James Franco this week, and I LOVE when John Stamos is on. Some of the contests and segments are a bit weird and crude, but whatever- that’s when you change the station to the 90s on 9 😉

SUMMER SHOES – This was over a period of a couple of weeks, but for less than $50, I got 3 pairs of cute shoes for the Spring/Summer:


The wedges are from Target (online) and sandals are from Wal-Mart (I was merely walking by the shoe department on a quick trip there and these caught my eye)

We are RedCard holders at Target (connected to our Debit, but we save 5% with each purchase and get free online shipping). I saw the wedges in store, but they were out of my size, so I tried on a size down and LOVED them. Surprisingly, that week there was a promotion for buy one get one 50% off AND I got an extra 10% off with my free shipping. Less than $40 for 2 pairs of shoes! The Wal-Mart sandals didn’t have a price on them so the cashier rang them up for $8.88- I’ll take em! Now I’m set for the next few summers 🙂

K-CUPS – We’ve had a Keurig since we moved here (my MIL had an extra so she gave it to us- thank you!), but the k-cups are hit or miss sometimes. I’m not a huge coffee fan honestly (coffee breath is nasty), but we’ve experimented with a few different varieties and these are our favorite thus far:


Café Escapes seem to be awesome! We drink the caramel apple in the Fall.

While each Café Escapes K-Cup is 60 calories (I don’t count), has 7 grams of sugar, and 2.5 grams of saturated fat- that’s not that bad when compared to Starbucks specialty drinks. Or am I wrong? Plus, it’s a lot cheaper. I always add a bit of vanilla almond milk and cinnamon to the café caramel and almond milk and pumpkin spice to the chai tea (I’ll even add pumpkin puree during the Fall). What are your favorite K-Cup flavors? Has anyone tried the Café Escapes mocha?

THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY – My absolute favorite reality TV indulgence. I’ve been watching it since season one (for real) which was way before the other cities started their spin-offs. In fact, I don’t even watch the other cities!


Sorry for the bad pic- couldn’t find much for Season 9.

Vicki has always been my favorite (maybe because she’s mom-ish to me and her kids are my age?). I was pissed to see Alexis and Gretchen go…why?!?!?! On the other hand, Heather has been a great addition to the crew. I could actually write a whole post about this so I’ll just stop here… Do you watch any of the Housewives series?

P.S. Feel free to send me the existing seasons on DVD 😉

That’s all I got for ya!
