Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I haven’t posted since my last Friday Favorites on February 5th, but let me tell you… a lot of favorites have happened since then!

1. Valentine’s Day

February 14th was filled with happiness, chocolate covered caramels, mimosas and $130. Yes, you read that right. I went to the casino for the first time and came out ahead! P.S. If you’re from Pittsburgh or ever in the area, the casino’s brunch is amazing!



2. Winter Pasta Salad 

I love love love pasta salad. But I hate how much work it is. I had been missing that delicious summer side dish so when I stumbled upon this recipe, I knew I could recreate my own version!



I changed it to wheat pasta and added a can of cream of chicken soup and some more veggies and called it a day. This was perfect for a cold winter night but still tasted light and healthy!


3. Kind Gestures 

I’ve been super overwhelmed with class lately. It’s hard to balance class when your priorities and obligations are now focused on your career. I had a meeting with my advisor (basically a pep talk) and it ended with her giving me this mug which she filled with hot chocolate. It’s the little things 🙂


And Sweet Gestures

My cousin Morgan sent me these in the mail the other day…



I’m going to treat myself to these this weekend because I deserve it. I made it through the week!

4. Carrie Underwood 

On Wednesday, my mom and I and a few of our friends went to see Carrie Underwood. It was my second time seeing her in concert and girl did not disappoint!



Her voice live is amazing and she is simply gorgeous.



And here I am Thursday morning at the gym trying to get Carrie Underwood legs. A girl can dream right?!

5. Office Decorations 

I hung up a decorative quote thing on the wall in my office. I now officially have this and a map of Pennsylvania so I know where I’m talking about when I’m working. Baby steps… Where is the best place to buy office decorations?! HELP!


What are your weekend plans?

    Hey, fellow Pittsburgher here! I never knew the casino had a brunch. Brunch and a little gambling sounds like a great day! That is so nice of your advisor!
