Friday Faves

It's almost the weekend!!!!  Here's what's on my mind...



Still thinking about JT's VMA performance + N*SYNC surprise!

My sweet friend, Jen, gave me these Pantone note cards--love 'em!

Not that I'm encouraging vigilantes, but this girl's bike thief story is pretty awesome.

This random video that my friend, Dustin, just showed me.  DYING.

Frozen slushie beer!!?!?!? How did I not know they had this at Dodgers games?


Have a fab weekend!  See you next week :)

Friday Favorites: Space Jam edition

  • Songza--I have to do a whole post for this app soon.  It's like Spotify but with their amazing concierge for music genres by mood.  90s Feel Good Hits are my jam!
  • Lobster Fest!--I think I love lobster mainly as a vehicle for butter, but I'm totally up for going to this... 
  • This Buzzfeed article...although it makes me feel VERY old.  The current class of 2017 was born in 1999 you guys!!!!!??!?!
  • And THIS Buzzfeed also--specifically the ORIGINAL 1996 Space Jam website.  I mean...there are no words for how incredible this truly is. 
  • These pants!  Any time comfy pants can be disguised as real pants, I'm all for it.
  • Oven Love Blog!  I've used some of Natalie's recipes, like for my orange creamsicles, and now we are featuring each other on our sites.  She's super creative with her recipes for all diet types--check her out!

Have a fab weekend!  You won't want to miss next week--a whole slew of posts to inspire your Labor Day parties!  Hasta!

Friday Favorite: Espanol!

Hola!  Me llamo Lauren.  Que tal?  Estoy muy bien, gracias! 

I'm doing something I always wanted to do, you guys--I'm learning Spanish!  Well, starting to, at least.  I took Spanish in 5th + 6th grade, but then French in high school.  Living in LA, I really wish I was fluent in Spanish because 36.7% of our city speaks  it.  

So when Parker told me about the Coffee Break Spanish podcast (of course he did), I started downloading it ASAP.  And it's amaaazing!  

I started from the very beginning, which is the basics: greetings, name, where you're from, etc.   The format does make it really easy to learn so far.  Also, the hosts are Scottish, so they are super fun to listen to even when they are speaking in their normal accents.  I actually feel like Mark + Kara are my real-life buds already.  Plus, Parker and I love singing the theme song--you'll see what I mean. 

If any of you are interested in learning Spanish (or they have other languages too), I highly recommend subscribing to the FREE podcast on their site HERE or on your mobile device!  It's easy to listen to while you're commuting, working out, washing dishes, or anytime you have a few spare minutes.  

Buenas Tardes, amigos!  Hasta luego!
