Friday Favorites - Summertime

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm sharing some of my favorite ways to survive the summer, even though it technically hasn't started yet, because I am a snow-colored person and in danger of catching fire just stepping outside my door everyday.

I hope you are enjoying the weekend with some welcome company. Obviously, my cats love hanging out together.

Sno cones / water ice
They were always called sno cones when I lived in the South, but in the Northeast, they seem to call it water ice. It's my favorite summer food, because when it's hot, I start craving them like crazy. Especially with mixed flavors, like coconut, cherry, and vanilla - SO delicious!!

I went to Target this week and found these sandals buy one get one 1/2 off. The Gladiator sandals are similar to these Madewell sandals I've been wanting, but have been too cheap to buy. I hope these will see a lot of time outside this summer.

TV Show:
I started watching Orange is the New Black, and I love this show. I don't know why I thought I would not be into it, but it is so different than I was expecting. It is not just a comedy; I am all up into this drama.

Workout Find:
My Old Navy capris are my favorite thing to work out in, because they are so tough, they survived the Spartan Race with no rips or tears. They are also stretchy for all the weird squats I do. I have them in black, and recently bought the blue.

I laugh everytime I read this. I can't stop picturing it.
Linking up with Amanda today for Friday Favorites. Have a fantastic weekend!


  1. bahahahhhaa I love her could she be any more funny? I've heard those Old Navy capris have great compression! Thanks so much for linking up!!! Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. I love snow cones in the summertime!! Especially once with some coconut flavor in them :) I haven't had one yet but I'm thinking tomorrow's beautiful weather will be cause for one! Stopping by from the link up!

  3. Snow colored person... haha!! Right there with ya!! (Craving a sno cone now!!) ;)

  4. Hey Jess! This is my fist time visiting your blog and I love the title! What a great name! I love a good snow cone! I actually bought my daughter a snow cone machine last year and we use it periodically. I pretty much love any and all ice cream and frozen desserts, lol!

  5. water ice? say what? i've always called them sno cones too! i love those compression crops - those are such a fun pattern! :)

  6. Love your kittens! And omg you make me feel for a snow cone!!

  7. I'm OBSESSED with Orange is the new Black! The second season started yesterday and I will most likely spend all weekend watching it. So good!!

  8. Loooove OITNB! It's a gift and a curse that all the episodes become available at once, I swear!

  9. Girl you need to try these sno cones here in Provo.. BEST EVER and you can even add a small scoop of coconut ice cream in the middle which makes it even better. I've been hearing a lot about Orange is the New Black.. would you say it's more of a chick show or something my husband and I can watch together? Funny you mention those compression capris from Old Navy because I'm eyeing the gray ones and am planning to buy them next week while they are on sale. I already own a couple pairs of Old Navy compression capris and can't get enough. Best active wear ever and it's so reasonably priced too.

    Dearest Lou
