From Around the Web

Thank goodness it's Friday!  
Did you guys have a nice week, are you ready for some weekend fun.  My parents and my in-laws are coming over Saturday evening for a little get together, so I am looking forward to that but also frantically decorating and menu planning.  I DIY-ed some pretty napkins and napkin rings for the table but still haven't decide on the table scape.  I can't seem to find little white pumpkins anywhere, not even Trader Joe's, I was planning to have them line the center of my table but it looks like I'll be scrolling Pinterest today for more ideas.  Maybe I'll do a eucalyptus wreath down the center of my table with some small candles in glass votives.  None of which I have by the way.  I mentioned on Wednesday that I began Orange Theory this week and boy I'm still feeling it in my muscles.  Is anyone else taking the Orange Theory classes?  I like it and have decided to sign up and start with two mornings a week before work.  I took some fitness before pictures and I'm hoping that in a couple months I'll have some changes and a more toned body and maybe do a before and after post about my experience.  In other news, I have been blogging for a little over six months now and wanted to say thank you to everyone (especially you mom) who stops by to read my posts.  It means a lot.  Are you guys liking what I'm doing?  Do you dislike anything I'm doing?  

And now for this week's round up of fun article's from around the web to ease us into the weekend mode.  Enjoy!

Basically every spot on this list has officially made it's way onto my never ending list of places I'd like to visit.  Pink, pink and more pink places please.

Is It Better To Work Out In A Group? 5 Benefits Of Exercising With Pals Instead Of On Your Own
This article hit home with me because I just started taking exercise classes after being in a little bit of an exercise slump.  Before I went to Greece in July I was working out at home daily and I was really making progress but for some reason I lost my motivation and energy and completely stopped exercising, not including my daily walks.  This article explains the benefits of working out in a class using medical students as it's test subjects, I found the article very interesting.

13 Realistic Self-Care Tips That Will Keep You Calm In Stressful Times
This list is pretty on point, in my opinion, when it comes to trying to destress one's self.  I'm just not big on baths... do you guys take baths?  Just the other day my mom's friend told me she takes a bath for about 45 minutes EVERY night!  She's a very sweet and happy lady so I guess there is something to it.

Am I annoying you with my obsession of this show yet?  I'm obsessed.  Season 2 was great, a lot of people have a lot of opinions out there about Season 2.  Everyone agrees it was great but you, the internet is made up opinions.  Case and point, this blog, ha.  I digress, Season 3 has been confirmed which is not a spoiler but beware before clicking this article does contain spoilers.

18 Delectable Chocolate Pies That Taste Like Happiness
The second time I met my mother-in-law she, in so many words, said to me 'I just don't understand people who don't like chocolate'  or maybe she said sweets.  She's hilarious!  She said this while she served me an extra large slice of chocolate, chocolate cake, I got the hint.  She is an expert baker but actually not so great with pies, per her own account, I have bookmarked this article to impress her and get those brownie points (pun intended).

All Our Questions About Natural Makeup, Answered
This blog post, written by one of my favorite blogs, Cupcakes and Cashmere, answers a lot of questions a lot of women have about 'Natural Makeup'.  I'm all for 'natural' solutions to makeup, house products and in the kitchen but it's sometimes hard to understand the terms of the 'natural' movement.  This blog post is a Q&A with the co-fonder of a 'natural' makeup brand.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.  And before I depart to today I just wanted to say, grab your loved ones and hold them tight.  I feel terrible for the victims of the terror attack in New York City this past Tuesday and I am praying for them and their families.
