Friday Faves 2.16

Must read

Hi friends! How are ya?? I hope you’ve had an amazing week. We’re heading out for something fun – I’ll share the adventures over on IG stories! What do you have going on this weekend?

I feel like I need to get back into the “in the moment” style of blogging because I have a lot of pics to post today. It’s been a very fun week 🙂

Last weekend, we went to an event here in town called Beefsteak. It was a benefit and auction to support military veterans, and we had the BEST time. We went with a group of friends, ate amazing food, won some prizes, and spent hours on the dance floor. I quickly remembered how much I enjoy dancing to 90s rap, Selena, and early 2000s music with a margarita in my hand. It’s been wayyyy too long.

Some pics from the festivities:

(My dress was a Dillard’s find! I ordered three from Rent the Runway and nothing worked. I was pumped that I found something cute at the last minute)

This week was also Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday.

It was wild that such a somber day coincided with a festive candy-filled holiday, but we enjoyed the best of both worlds. The girls woke up to Valentine’s baskets,

we went to mass together,

and had an epic dinner at Fleming’s.

Always the seafood tower:

plus the potatoes (I want to curl up and live inside), asparagus, salad, gin cocktails, filet mignon and chocolate lava cake. We started celebrating Valentine’s Day with the girls when Liv was a baby. We couldn’t find a babysitter, took her to dinner with us, and had the best time. It’s become a bit of a tradition, and I look forward to our fancy family Valentine’s dinner.

Listening to this on the way to barre today.

Fashion + beauty:

Amazon finds! I ordered two dresses from Amazon recently:

this Nap dress dupe 

and this LBD.

The Nap dress dupe is thinner fabric than the original, but not see-through, and a fraction of the cost.

The LBD is flattering and comes in quite a few different colors! The quality is excellent and I want the brown and cream one now, too.

Fitness, health, + good eats:
