This is how Hudson felt at the vet last week. He is now happily out of the neck doughnut and will be back at the dog park this weekend!

 

Last week we got a great response from this post so we are going to make it a regular thing. Enjoy some fun links and even more fun sales!

Who didn’t want to learn the finale routine from Dirty Dancing? Better yet, they performed it at their wedding reception!

I may or may not have watched this entire thing and continually laughed throughout. If you love game shows and when people say ridiculous answers you must watch this montage.

I had Samantha, what about you?

This new product could simplify a lot of lives; very futuristic way of handling finances.

It’s no secret that we love Hudson but this list confirmed just how much.

Mr. Rogers was a staple in our house and I’m sure yours too, learn even more reasons to admire him. (I also watched the Senate video they suggest)

Everyone’s busy but we should all take the time to slow down and try to do more of these, #1 is a personal favorite!

This guy helped save a family of ducklings and then led them to water.

Couldn’t agree more about this video promoting non-girly girls toys. You go, girls!

Losing weight and reaching your goal isn’t always what you thought it would be. My friend, Jess, shares her story here.

Wegmans is the best. Hands down, no competition. If you need to be convinced or just reminded, read on.

Just because bird-dog hybrids are silly and ridiculous.

Cosmo has more than just sex tips, as evidenced by not one, but two friends who wrote articles this week. Alie’s is a must read, obviously.

Love this skirt and chunky turtleneck look.

Can’t wait to try out this shopping app Devon recommended.

Went to get this Old Navy sweater after seeing it here but all they had was XXL, but coats were 40% off that day so I got this instead.

J.Crew is still killing it with extra 40% off sale and they keep adding new styles.  I scored what could be my best deal ever at J.Crew this week when I got these shiny ponies for only $34.  Someone must have returned them to the store and they were marked as $69.99, still $179.99 online.

Ann Taylor is additional 50% off sale, Factory is additional 40% off sale, Old Navy has been running crazy promotion after crazy promotion this week (check in for daily deals) and Gap and Banana are 40% full price styles.  Happy Shopping!

Friday Favorites

On the world wide web, I come across countless articles, videos, photos and sales every week.  Some are worth sharing and others…well they’re not.  To share some favorite links from the week along with some upcoming sales to plan your weekend shopping, we are beginning a new series on Fridays.

Most Loved Links of the Week:

Lena Dunham interviews Mindy Kaling in this hilarious article

Jenna Lyons (J.Crew God) shares her 10 fashion commandments and why she thinks trend is a dirty word

If you aren’t already following @aliemartell on Twitter, you should go do that. Right now.  She writes for Cosmo and always has the best tweets and shared links.  Hudson even got a shout out this week!

Who doesn’t love a Friends themed Buzzfeed?  This one got me so excited to be home soon for Thanksgiving!

It seems like every time I go on Facebook these days someone is engaged, married or pregnant.  I’m sure you’ve an example of each one of the 5 most Annoying Facebook Engagement announcements.  (Apologies if you did one of these)

Our mom hated Abercrombie when I was a teenager, I don’t think it was around for Erin and Meaghan, was it?  She would’ve hated it for you guys too.  It was loud, had an overwhelming cologne smell and the clothes were way overpriced.    The CEO also happens to be a jerk.  Check out why and thanks mom, you really do always know best!

Damsel in Dior is one of my all time favorite blogs!  Her style and taste are impeccable and her holiday gift guide is a must read; I’ve already picked several things for people on my list.

I was on Nike’s site the other day checking out some dunks because I love mine and they are really killing it with woman’s shoes.  I want these, these and winter boots, yes please!

J.Crew is currently having a sale with an additional sale.  40% already markdown prices and even better if you have a student or teacher ID you get 15% more on top of that.  I stopped in yesterday and picked up this gorgeous jeweled sweater in gray and this striped sweater with the blue back.  I also love this, this and this!  I spotted my favorite boots this fall on sale in store for $199 yesterday.  They are still full price online but an incredible deal with the discount.  Check your local store! (I should never be allowed near a J.Crew store or site during these sales!)

Happy Reading and TGIF!

Feeling Lucky

I recently purchased a pair of Lucky Brand boots, similar,  from a fabulous tiny shop in a neighboring town.  I have searched for the past few years for tall fall boots that are slim enough  for my tiny calf’s.  This is the only pair of boots that I have found that I can’t fit my entire arm down while wearing.  Being completely satisfied with my purchase, I decided to take a look at the online Lucky Brand store…What I found was amazing!

Lucky has a fabulous sale happening right now!  Lucky Brand sale items are on sale! Here are the pieces that I’m contemplating purchasing for Reagan:
