Friday Favorites


Happy Friday!  This Friday is an extra happy one because I'm only working until 1!!  Jared and I are taking the afternoon off to hang out and then having a date night tonight.  That is one great way to start the weekend :)

My Friday Favorites this week are...


What's Up Wednesday


This was my first time participating in the What's Up Wednesday link up & it was so fun!  I will definitely be joining in every month.  See my post here!


House of White Blog
5 Tips to beat the post-wedding blues

I'm going to be blogging for House of White on their bridal blog about my wedding & newlywed experiences!  I feel so blessed with this opportunity & can't wait to share more posts.  See my first blog for House of White here!


Better After
Blue Living Room with Whitewashed Brick Fireplace

Our living room renovation was featured on Better After this week & that has this girl very excited :)  I worked so hard on the design of that room and getting to share the result is so fun!  See the feature on our living room here.


Nordstrom Sale
I am LOVING my Nordstrom sale items!!  See what I decided to keep below!

I absolutely love this top!  It's $12.90 which is a steal for such a comfy shirt that is perfect for leggings this fall!  I am super happy with my Rae necklace as well and it goes with everything :)
Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To has been raving about these forever and I finally listened!  I'm so happy I did :)  These are the ultimate in cozy and comfy so if you see me at home this winter I can guarantee you'll probably find me in one of my new blardigans!
Already comfy reading in my blardigan :) 
There is only one size in one color left of these on the sale but there are several regular priced options that you should check out here!

I was a little iffy on ordering these but am SO glad I did!  They are super cute & fun and will go with anything :)

These weren't on the anniversary sale but at $8 a pair it feels like they're on sale!  So many cute colors & perfect for gift giving :)
Love these tops!  Perfect for jeans & leggings. Definitely need to wear a cami with them since they're a little lower cut.  The Lush Perfect Shirt (same but longer) is on the anniversary sale here

New favorite workout pants!  So comfy & flattering!
I love the capri & full legging versions!

I of course found a few other favorite purchases but those were Christmas gifts so I can't share :) 


Favorite Food/Drinks

 Since I'm doing Weight Watchers I thought I would share my favorite foods & drinks I'm having right now!

Love protein smoothies for breakfast!
Tortilla pizzas are quickly becoming my lunch favorite!
All these summer veggies right now are so yummy and let me have huge plates of food for very few points!


Happy Friday!

Owning It

Today I'm linking up with Christina at The New Mrs for her Own It linkup!  To see my Own It post from last month click here.


Some crazy things I'm going to own this month are...
1. When I hear a song I really love, I imagine movie scenes or life scenes it would be appropriate for.  Totally weird I know!!
2. I'm so OCD about leaving the house.  I'm always worried I'll leave my straightener or stove on, forget to shut the garage door etc.  My solution to this is that I take a picture of my unplugged straightener or off stove and I either take a photo of the garage door down or look back 10 times while I drive away.  That way when I get to work I don't have to freak about my straightener but can just look at my photo!  I know it sounds totally crazy but it works for me :)  Same goes for locked doors, I double check before bed & when I leave. 
3. Nothing drives me crazier than starting a load of laundry and then finding something else that should have gone in that load.
4. I always cut my ravioli into 4 squares to eat it.  Always.
5. I cannot read books on a computer, kindle, etc.  I'm a traditional go to the library & check out a book girl & I love it!
6. I love fruit but I hate hot fruit.  No cobblers, fruit pies, etc for me thank you!
7. I look like I have a liquid problem at work.  I come in most days with a breakfast smoothie, my brita water bottle, a tervis of green tea and sometimes a pitcher of tea as well.   This girl likes to be prepared but sometimes it looks a little ridiculous!
8.  I cannot go shopping without my hair & makeup fixed.  If I don't feel like I look good shopping, I'll hate everything I try on and never find anything.  Bad for my closet, good for the bank account :)
9. I'm so cold natured.  I use my space heater at work 8 hours a day, every day.  I hate to be cold & it makes me miserable if I am.  Our air conditioning at home was making me so cold the other day I debated on digging out my winter pj's.  This girl needs to get some better blood flow!
10. I completely suck at being on time.  Not because I'm not paying attention but because I try to fit in 100 things before I leave the house.  If I'm ready 5 minutes early that makes me think I can do laundry, dishes, pick up etc and before I know it I'm late!  This is something that I'm really working on but it's a major struggle :)


Link up with us to own your crazy!  It's the little things like this that make us who we are so we might as well celebrate it and laugh at it right?!

What's Up Wednesday


Today is What's Up Wednesday with Mix & Match Family, Pinterest Told Me To, & The Larson Lingo!

1. What we're eating this week...

Stir Fry

Velveeta Chicken, Broccoli & Rice

The rest of the week's meals will be yummy Chicken Parmesan and we have a date night planned for Friday night :)


2. What I'm reminiscing about...

As of July 25th we have officially been married for 9 months!  How crazy is that?!  This first year has flown by and it's hard to believe that pretty soon we'll be celebrating our one year anniversary.

See my wedding posts here:


3. What I'm loving...


I am LOVING my Nordstrom sale items!!  See what I decided to keep below!

I absolutely love this top!  It's $12.90 which is a steal for such a comfy shirt that is perfect for leggings this fall!  I am super happy with my Rae necklace as well and it goes with everything :)
Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To has been raving about these forever and I finally listened!  I'm so happy I did :)  These are the ultimate in cozy and comfy so if you see me at home this winter I can guarantee you'll probably find me in one of my new blardigans!
Already comfy reading in my blardigan :) 
There is only one size in one color left of these on the sale but there are several regular priced options that you should check out here!

I was a little iffy on ordering these but am SO glad I did!  They are super cute & fun and will go with anything :)

These weren't on the anniversary sale but at $8 a pair it feels like they're on sale!  So many cute colors & perfect for gift giving :)
Love these tops!  Perfect for jeans & leggings. Definitely need to wear a cami with them since they're a little lower cut.  The Lush Perfect Shirt (same but longer) is on the anniversary sale here

New favorite workout pants!  So comfy & flattering!
I love the capri & full legging versions!

I of course found a few other favorite purchases but those were Christmas gifts so I can't share :) 


4. What we've been up to...

Date nights, business planning, car shopping, life in general has been keeping us pretty busy!  Glad this weekend is going to be a relaxed one where we can just hang out!


5. What I'm dreading...

I can't really say there's anything I'm dreading at the moment!  Feeling pretty positive and looking forward to working towards my individual goals and our business goals this month!


6. What I'm working on...

Losing weight & getting in shape!  I started Weight Watchers and working out about 6 weeks ago and am tracking my progress on Instagram @kmpeacock_ww and with weekly fitness updates coming to the blog on Thursdays.  So far I have made quite a bit of progress but am still working hard towards my goal!  See last Thursday's update here!

7. What I'm excited about...



Last year we were wedding planning, honeymooning and getting settled in during the holidays so even though we enjoyed them we didn't really get to go all out with our celebrations!  I'm so looking forward to Halloween, the fall season, Thanksgiving & most of all Christmas!  I know it's still summer but all the fall stuff I'm seeing in stores is making me look forward to one of my favorite times of year with my favorite person :)


8. What I'm watching/reading...

The Bachelorette!   The current season just ended (see my finale & ATFR recap here) and honestly I'm not really sad to see this season go.  I didn't feel the love connection between these two!  I'm just over here hoping they choose Ben H for Bachelor :)

We are currently finishing up the last season of Friday Night Lights!  Let me tell you, that show is ADDICTIVE.  I get so emotionally invested it's ridiculous.   After it's over, I believe we're headed to binge watch House of Cards.  Feel free to share any other suggestions!

Currently I'm reading a lot and I love it!  These are the books I collected from my trip to the library last week and I'm already tearing through them!  I'm reading The Royal We right now and it is SO GOOD! 
9. What I'm listening to...
Songs I'm loving right now:
Whiskey On My Breath - Love & Theft
Bad Blood - Taylor Swift
Fight Song - Rachel Platten
Lord I Need You - Chris Tomlin
Photograph - Ed Sheeran
Trust In You - Lauren Daigle

10. What I'm wearing...


Right now I'm all about some comfy summer dresses to beat the heat!  Loving light weight dresses that I can just throw on and wear out to dinner, running errands, etc.


11. What I'm doing this weekend...
This weekend is going to consist of date nights, catching up on some house projects & blog work, and of course some grocery shopping and errands to run :)  Looking forward to a laid back weekend!

12. What I'm looking forward to next month...


Football season is coming and I'm looking forward to spending some Friday nights at our old high school watching the football games with Jared!  It's fun to go back as alumni and cheer on our school :)  Brings back lots of memories!


13. What else is new....
5 Tips to beat the post-wedding blues
I am going to be blogging for House of White Bridal and am so excited! I love to blog and am obsessed with weddings so it's the perfect pairing :)  House of White is where I found my wedding gown and I can not say enough wonderful things about them!  See my first blog post here!  Please feel free to pin the post or share it with your friends :)
Blue Living Room with Whitewashed Brick Fireplace
Our living room renovation was featured on Better After!  Love how this room turned out & I am so excited that it was featured!  Check it out here!
