Friday Favorites #105

 Happy Friday Foxy Friends! Actually I had yesterday and today off, which has been nice. Get some stuff done before leaving on Sunday for the week. Boo.



In case you missed it this week:

Monday: My Workout Routine
Tuesday: The Guy Behind the Blog
Wednesday: Grey Monochromatic Look
Thursday: FabFunFit Editors Unboxing First Impression





While I was gone last week Mr. took the kids to LEGOLAND. He even did Mini Fox's hair for the occasion. He took this picture and then said, doing a girls hair is a Dad's Kryptonite. I think he did pretty good.





For Valentine's Day as you know I was out of town, but my family sent me pictures, which is almost as good, or so I kept telling myself. Isn't this Valentine's so cute?


I got a Valentine's picture from the kids, they are so cute.


Meanwhile I got to spend time with these folks. My Godmother and my Uncle.


This is the view from their balcony.


The weather was actually agreeable and I got to go for a, what turned out to be, 5 mile run. Talk about legs falling off. There was this huge hill, but I wanted to get to the top so I could get this view.





This past weekend, I finally made it home, after a long plane ride in probably the worst storm California has seen in a long while. But I finally made it home and Saturday we took this girl to her first movie.






She loved it and we are so excited that we can now go to the movies as a family. I'm thinking girls night to the movies next month for Beauty and the Beast. I'm hoping they made it kid friendly?


Then Sunday was church followed by some In and Out...yum. This is us waiting in line for the food, we were too lazy to get out.


After naps Mini Fox and I snuggled in bed and watch Toy Story.




This happening this week. Forts are our favorite. Mr. can make some pretty epic forts.



Yesterday I got to take the day off, woo hoo! I got a bunch of errands done, filmed some YouTube videos, took some outfit pictures and then went and got a mani/pedi, which I haven't done in probably 8 months.


So nice to get pampered once in a while right?







Linking up with The Blended Blog for a little Blog Loves.

First up is Erin, she just had a heart warming story that just made me feel good, and reminded me that no matter how small an act it could be something huge for someone else.


I love how open Cara is about no appologizing for life. Life happens, and no matter what you see on social media, life is messy, it's not always rainbows and butterflies. Thanks Cara for keeping it real.




This could be the cutest thing ever...can we just all say awwwww.  Stefanie thought she was getting two girl bunnies, but ended up with 10 extra ones...oops! But they are so cute! If you are having a rough day, just go ahead and click on this, it's a feel good post. Plus when you say bunny, doesn't it just make you smile?



Katy, Shelly and Holly are starting a new link up called Royally Waiting every Wednesday, so get to linking up, these ladies deserve all of the support we can give!



What are you up to this weekend? We aren't doing much, just trying to get organized for me to leave for another week. Boo, but this should be the last one for a bit. Woo hoo!

Grey Monochromatic Look

Happy Wednesday Foxy Friends! It's hump day, and I have tomorrow and Friday off, so technically this is my "Friday" woo hoo! Although I'm traveling for work on Sunday, so really I'm just replacing Thursday for Sunday, did that make sense? Anyway...we're onto the last week of  the New Year Styled, and I thought it was be appropriate to try something I've never done before, a monochromatic look. Although my shoes aren't...but we'll just glance over that.


Tunic // Leggings // Scarf (Similiar) // Boots (similiar)

So remember last year when I challenged myself to intentionally do my hair? Well I decided I thought it would be helpful to start a YouTube series on hair 101. My How To French Braid Your Own Hair has gotten over 17K views, so I figured people are wondering about the basics. My first one is going to be how to use a bobby pin, starting next week! Let me know down in the comments if you would like me to do something specific.



How to pancake a braid to get this full looking braid is going to be next in the series.





What have you done with your hair lately? I've pretty much done nothing since I ended my challenge, haha. Maybe I need to bring the challenge back one month.


Thank you to all of you who continue to make this link up a success! Keep posting those outfits, we love all of them!
