The Favorites on Friday

Woo-hoo! It's Friday and it's May.

May is the most wild and crazy month at work for me because it's our fiscal year end and the pressure is on! It's been a busy week already but I'm looking forward to the weekend with derby party / photography class plans with miss Brooke. Snapchat friends: expect something old, something new, something awkward and something inappropriate. (that's how that saying goes, right?)

What better way to end the week than recapping a bunch of things that made me smile, think, laugh and love the universe?

Favorite App Update

Since we've already mentioned snapchat today (and in my confessions), we need to talk about the new update from yesterday. 

At first I thought "oh shit, I might actually have to talk to my friends without allowing time to think of something witty."

Then - when I texted Kayla (a real text, yes) to tell her that the app was updated, we both realized it was pretty much the coolest. It's like a skype call without planning out the call part (because I hate actual phone calls)



Favorite Reads

So inspiring when Women Empower other Women
You know I loved this one (and thanks for showing Caitlin some love)
P-R-O-U-D (and a little pissed) with this post. Such a strong lady!

Favorite Tweet

Lauren knows my love for Costco so she sent me this article that points out the best way for single people to navigate the store. 

"Anyone at Costco Monday-Thursday is basically announcing that not only do they love a good deal on AAA batteries; they’re also single and ready to mingle"

Favorite Commercial

I might be a little late to the party seeing that this was from (wayyyyyy) back in 2013 - but forgive me please, I was busy in September.

This ad showed up before a YouTube and for the first time in ALL of history I didn't click "skip ad".



Favorite New Blogger

So I have to give the award to mom on this one. 

She jumped into blogging fearlessly on Monday (with GIFS, you guys!) and hasn't let up on the momentum. She introduced herself and now she's ready to start hitting you with all of her wisdom and wit. 

Thank you for all of you who welcomed her so warmly - although I DID complain that she got more comments on her first post than any post I wrote for my first 2.5 years of blogging. 


That's all I have - go enjoy the sun if you have it, friends!

Who else is linking up with Amanda's Friday Favorites?

GIrls totally don't poop. I'm still telling my husband that ;)!

Snapchat videos and calls, oh wow!

Lauren said...

I mean obviously anytime I see Costco I think of our shared love but I can totally see you using it as a singles place next time you're looking for love!

And I am so confused about the snapchat video chatting thing but I do love the text feature. Can't wait to see what you send this weekend!

Awwwww... I love that you picked your Mom! :)
PooPourri fucking WORKS man! I have it and seriously... you can't smell a THING after you spray it!!!
I'm so confused by the new update. :/ I can't seem to reply just by double tapping anymore. :(

Tracey said...

It's so sad, I just got Snapchat last week. And now I have to learn this new update?!

Also I love your mom's blog.

Kenzie Smith said...

The new snapchat update confuses me, I just started getting the hang of it.
Sounds like you have a fun weekend planned!! Happy Friday :)

I miss going to costco

Lynsey @ Eternally Wanderlyn said...

Bahah! That's one of my favorite commercials. I laugh every time I see it.

Nadine Lynn said...

LOL @ the Costco tag line underneath!!! I am hoping they open one closer to me so I can hit it up weekly like I used too!!! I miss it! I need it!

Somehow I missed your mom's start of her blog this week. My brain has been slacking. I need to go stalk now.

Have a great weekend!

We don't have Costco in Oklahoma, just Sam's. I read this morning Tulsa will be getting the first one in OK, can't wait to check it out!

Rachel @ Love, Rachel said...

Is it weird I want to follow your mom's blog?!? lol

BLovedBoston said...

I have never seen that commercial - that's a winner!! I wish there was a Costco near me...i feel like I'm missing out on a lot!! Have an awesome weekend!

brooke lyn said...

jessi time twice in one weekend. it's a derby miracle!

Krystal R. said...

I followed your mom! So cool that your mom is blogging!

Brittany said...

"something old, something new, something awkward and something inappropriate" is way more realistic... something blue doesn't even make sense. I'm officially following this saying on my wedding day haha

Just Me, Angie! said...

Thank you, Jessi! You're my favorite Girl ... Your Mom :)

Kayla Moothart said...

YAY for SNAP! The only time the video chat has only worked when I was doing it with you!

Costco is an amazing place - but for finding someone? That would be a great social experiment!

Caitlin @ CaitlinLiz.com said...

Haha! Oh my god that commercial!!! Too funny (but secretly I kind of want to buy that)

Rachel Sedaker said...

I'm reluctant to jump on the snapchat bandwagon, but now I'm curious... Also, will you be at the Portland Bloggers photography thing? I'll be there!

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

Hahahahaha I never knew that little tidbit about Costco! Can I tell you how excited I am that one of my posts made the list! I guess I need to start digging a little deeper once in a while ;-) Oh yeah girls definitely don't poop well at least not in my household but there is a funny story that we can share about that over email! Thanks for linking up love! I would have been here earlier but work is such a downer sometimes like I actually had to do it today boooooo

Christina said...

your mom blogs? shit yes, that is awesome!

Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

i can only tolerate costco as soon as it opens so i can get my shizz and get out of there before the crowds (aka morons) come and ruin my day!
