5 Things Friday – Lady Dates, Ewok Dogs and A Hole In My Heart!


I hope you have been having a good week so far and that you have something exciting planned for your weekend. If not, at the very least you’ve made it to Friday and you can spend all day in bed watching reality TV tomorrow if you want to make up for a crummy week. I won’t judge! I’m planning on spending some quality time watching “Toned Up” on Amazon since I missed it when it aired last year. I’ve heard good things about the show and already love TIU, so I’m excited to check it out! Try not to be jealous of how action packed my weekend is sounding so far! 😉

So this wouldn’t be Friday without talking about Friday Favorites! Let’s get into my favorite things this week with something that will make you smile! Well, at least something that made me smile. I can’t help but laugh when I watch this video over and over and over again…

1. Ewok Dog Video


2. Serial Podcast


Source here.

After hearing about how awesome this podcast was over and over and over again, I finally gave in and jumped on the bandwagon. I was immediately hooked after the first few minutes and just finished the last episode of season 1 yesterday and now I’m frustrated! I completely see why everyone was so upset by the ending and I can’t wait until the next season starts sometime time this year. I hope it’s sooner rather than later, because the absence of Serial has left a little hole in my heart that I’m not sure another podcast can fill. If you have any suggestions though, please leave them below! I’m itching for something new to listen to!

3. Mani/Pedi Dates on Bonus Days Off

Since Monday was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and both my friend Callie and I had the day off, we decided to get together for a much needed lady date! We ended up getting twinsie pedicures with OPI’s Malaga Wine (my current favorite pedicure color)…


and I got a shellac manicure with OPI’s I Mainely Eat Lobster, which just so happened to coordinate with the freshly pureed strawberry lemonade I ordered at lunch! This color is definitely next on my list of colors to add to my collection!



4. ToeSox


This may be a TMI moment, but here we go! I’m a sweaty mess when I do yoga, even if it’s not hot yoga. My feet are always sliding all over the place, making it really hard to concentrate on what I’m supposed to be doing. I got a couple pairs of these ToeSox for Christmas and have been loving wearing them during my yoga practice. Which brings us to my last favorite for this week…


5. 30 Day Yoga Challenge with Yoga with Adriene

I may have started the 30 Day Yoga Challenge 20 days late, but it’s better late than never, right?!?! I’m on day 3 today and have really been loving having some “me” time to clear my head during the day. I’m really excited to see how much I am able to improve after 30 days of practice! I’m really hoping to be able to be able to hold Crow Pose!

Questions of the Day:

What is one thing you are loving this week?

Are you participating in a 30 day yoga challenge? If so, which one?

Do you have any podcast recommendations that can help fill the void of Serial?

  1. Ooo, love that toe polish!! And that ewok dog video is amazing! I’m loving croissants this week – I had a croissant sandwich yesterday, and it will be so hard to not eat one every day….hehe


  2. I am loving my Naked Me Tea this week. My neighbor is actually the principal at Woodlawn High and says that is a TRUE story re: Serial podcast. I hear so much about it but have yet to listen to it yet. I just talk to my neighbor about it.

    Love the toe nail color!


  3. Good for you for doing a 30-day yoga challenge! That’s impressive. I can only manage it once a week. Maybe if my yoga mat was as cute as yours, I might do it more often!

    One thing I’m loving this week is getting ready for the wedding I’m attending next weekend in Santa Monica. I can’t wait to see sunshine again!


    • Awww thanks! I mean I’m three days in now and already wondering when I’m going to find time to fit it in. haha! It’s kind of stressful! I got the yoga mat for Christmas and it’s really cute but the quality isn’t great. The ink kind of moves around during hot yoga when I step on it so though it looks cute in photos, I wouldn’t really recommend picking one up for yourself. 😦

      AHHHH! That’s right!!! It’s fancy pants wedding time!!! You’re going to have a blast! I expect to see photos when you get back! 🙂


    • Thanks so much for stopping by! Most of the videos are under 30 minutes so it would be very easy to incorporate them! I usually do the one for whatever day I’m on and then repeat the one from the day before to make it around an hour long if I’m not doing any other exercise that day. Let me know how you like it if you give it a try!


  4. I’m loving the 30-day yoga challenge! Adrienne’s approach to yoga is refreshing.

    I’ve been seeing Serial mentioned everywhere! I’m convinced. Checking it out today.

    Have a wonderful weekend Tricia!


    • I couldn’t agree more! I love how fun she makes it. It makes it more like a treat than a burden to go through.

      Did you get a chance to check out Serial? I’m dying to know what you think!

      I hope you had a great weekend!


    • Well it’s only troubling because it’s an on going story. I’m so excited to hear season 2! You’re not late to the party at all! I just listened to a bunch of them all at once! haha!


  5. Punch a Coworker Monday would be hilarious if there was someone I really hated at the office! 😛

    I’m super super sad that my laptop decided to just stop playing all videos and music (…), because I’ve heard awesome things about Serial too! I’m trying to figure out an easy way to listen to podcasts in the car so I’ll have something to do on long car rides, haha.


    • OH NO! My laptop decided to take an all out dirt nap the other day when it had been working just fine before that. No idea what happened, but I feel your pain! If you have an iphone, you can download it there and listen to it. That’s what I was doing. 🙂

        • Hahaha! I know! My phone is full of those kind of pictures also. All you have to do is listen to it through the podcast icon and you should be good to go! I believe you can actually listen without downloading so that could actually solve your problem with space on your phone too!
