Today I am linking up with Miss Lindsey at The Bargain Blonde for Friday Favorites. That means I tell you all about my favorite things this week. If you wanna play too, head over to her blog and grab the button. Here it goes!
First up: The Most Incredible Homemade Tree House Ever
This, my friends, is my nephews’ tree house. It isn’t quite finished yet. It was built last week by my brother and my sister’s boyfriend. I never had a treehouse growing up, so to me, this treehouse is A DREAMHOUSE. The guys seriously just bought a bunch of wood and nails and siding and put this thing together. I can’t even believe it! My sister-in-law is going to put curtains up on the front and they are going to put a mini-fridge in there, and some pillows and blankets, and then lock the kids out during daylight hours.
I am so jealous.
Next: Christmas in July
It is now that time of year…when I start playing Christmas music on Pandora! Last year I turned on the crazy while I was working in my classroom in August, but this year…it came on yesterday when I remembered it was Christmas in July. I had to figure out someway to celebrate and by golly, why not kick off the season with some holiday tunes?!
Third: What I Have Been Sweating In
C9 by Champion Activewear at Target…I’ve named it the tye-dyed collection. If they had my size in every color, I would own them all. The bras are reversible (hell ya!) and the other shorts I own (notpicturedorfoundonline), which are made of jersey/pinny material, are reversible as well.
I feel like it must be known that I think I sweat more than any other human being on this planet when I am working out. With that being said – if I do ONE Zumba or dance class, then I cannot do any other form of exercise unless I change or I will scare others. The other day I did not bring a change of clothes for my two-part-workout and had to run to Target to get something before I got kicked out of the gym for dripping all over others. While I was there, I found the tye-dyed collection and fell in love. So comfy, so cute.
Fourth: FAVORITE READS
Gotta go to yesterday’s post to check that one out, mwahahaha.
And now…a little something new….
Dear McMuffin, I don’t know why you aren’t eating your wet food these days. I can’t keep feeding you Mr. Bear’s tuna fish. Not only is it not healthy (tuna fish is for humans, not kittycats), but its also his lunch food. Please lay off this personal strike against your own food you got going on right now! Oh…and stop pooping on the rug. Your kitty litter is CLEAN!
Dear Lady at Zumba, Why do you always shriek during class? I know you are trying to get people excited about dancing, but when the instructor is talking, there is NO REASON for you to yell, “OIYyiyiyiyiyiyiy ZUMBA!” in the middle of her explanation of how to do the samba. Everyone around you thinks you are annoying, not encouraging, and you are getting less of a workout everytime you stop to scream, “AY CARUMBA!” Please save the yelling for when you are doing Zumba Wii at home.
Dear Face, Since when did you become so greasy? I wash you like 3 times a day and you are still gross. Normally I have to coat you in extra-strength moisturizer because you are oh-so-dry, but lately, ew. Stop being nasty. Be more like Legs…they are dry like Sahara.
Dear World, Remember that time you left me $20 on the floor of the grocery store when I was like 7? Can you do that again…but this time make it $100. Baby needs some new sneakers. Thanks.

Love the treehouse. Cracked up laughing at your letter to the lady in Zumba. It sounds like the woman who is always next to me on the treadmill (even when there are a hundred free) and feels the need to grunt every 30 seconds. So annoying!
I love the Target workout apparel too. The sports bras are so comfy!
WOW! What a tree house! Your nephew is a lucky guy! And my face has been crazy oily too!!! It’s been so hot and humid!! And please let me find $100 too! Happy weekend!

Southern Belle Mama says
That treehouse is the bombdotcom (yes I said that, sue me). I better not let my kids see it; they’d be jealous!
Also, please forward a copy of the letter to your face on over to mine. Not cool! Have a great weekend!
Your blog is adorable and I can’t wait to follow along! I am here from the link up 🙂
What an awesome tree house! I always wanted one when I was younger and never got one.
