Friday Favorites: The Curveball

Happy Friday, everyone! This week was definitely better that the last few weeks, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I had a few “hurry up, Match Day” moments. I am so excited to spend this weekend with Chris. We’ve been so busy lately that it will be great to slow down a bit and make time for each other.

/ / One:
Residency update: Remember when I told y’all last week that Chris is done with interviews? Ha, the joke was on me. Chris got an e-mail this week from a program that interviews late…and we just couldn’t pass it up. If I could put the name on here, y’all would understand, too. Now we are scrambling to get him flights, a hotel, and a rental car for next week. (PS-Last-minute prices are no fun.) This has really thrown us a curveball because it feels like we are going backwards. Prior to the interview request, we were focused on our rank list. Now we have to wait and see where this new program fits. March 20, hurry up please!

/ / Two:
Remember when I couldn’t stop talking about getting the Sporto Molly Boots? Well, my other boots are starting to get neglected because I can’t stop wearing them! I have both the brown and black boots, but I definitely pull out the black ones more often. They are warm, comfortable, and great when it’s raining. I honestly can’t say enough good things about these. I might even have to do an outfit post just to show them to y’all.

/ / Three:
I took this sweet photo of my pup this week, and I just had to share. Isn’t she adorable?

/ / Four:
I haven’t purchased anything for myself all month! I am really good at convincing myself I really need an item, but we are currently trying to save up for a trip, so I am trying to focus on saving. It's tough when half the Google ads geared towards me are of dresses!

/ / Five:
I seriously can’t stop listening to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” It’s beginning to become a problem. This week I decided I seriously needed to branch out and hopped on Pandora for the first time in a long time. The “Thinking Out Loud” station is perfection. All my favorite songs, new and old. I have never clicked “like” so many songs in a row.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! 

Linking up with AmandaKarliDarci, and the new High Five for Friday girls.


  1. I loooove the song Thinking Out Loud. So good! :) Have a great weekend.

  2. Good luck to Chris on his interview, hopefully you'll be completely done after that!

    That pup is so cute and I wish I had your discipline when it comes to saving money. Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Maggie! He better be done after this because I don't think I can take any more! Haha. He has done 30+ interviews at this point.

      I am usually not too disciplined with saving money...but we have both a vacation to plan and a big move coming up so I am trying as hard as I can! :)

    1. Thank you, Briana. It's fun to take photos of that corgi turkey leg! Haha. :)

  4. Sorry to hear about the curveball last-minute interview and hope you get that squared away soon to move forward! Cute photo of the pup!

  5. Here's hoping you find a cheap flight! Come on, March 20th!

  6. way to go on not buying anything - i have done the complete opposite this month and bought ALL the things.. even though we have a couple trips coming up too.. it'll be my fault if we don't go!! i need to drill that in my head, because it's me who wants to go, and me who is gonna be to blame if we don't!

  7. Ah! Where did the hubs go interview? Love that picture of your pup! Have a great weekend!

  10. YES on the outfit post!! And I know how much you're ready for the day you can make a decision and not feel like you're just waiting. But maybe this one interview will change the rest of them. Good luck!!

  11. We just booked another cruise for November and have a Disney trip in May so I have to stop spending and start saving more. Just when I was really getting into my online shopping groove. Haha.

  12. Oh man, you and Chis sure are going through the emotional ringer in this interview process, aren't you! Hopefully if he ends up being interested in the program, it doesn't end up throwing off your rankings too much. March 22nd isn't too far away :)


  13. I love Thinking Out Loud. Great song!

    Sorry about the last minute interview, but I hope it goes well!

  14. Oh Match Day will be here before you know it! I remember that day (and all the stress/excitement leading up to it!) so well. Totally get the last minute scramble! When it's a big program, you can't pass up the opportunity! And your dog is adorable! Thanks for linking up with us again at H54F!
