Friday Favorites! LINK-UP!!!!

You may have noticed I was MIA last Friday, which means Friday Faves was a no-go. I was sick with a cold and it's still lingering, but I think I'm going to pull through.  

Soooo .... exciting news today! Several of you commented that you wanted Friday Faves to be link-up, so your wish is my command.  I created a button, which you can grab below and link-up with me today for Friday Faves.  Let's spread the faves!  



BLOG TITLE



So flattered! On Monday I was featured on a local blog called The Dallas Socials! If you live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, you should follow this blog. Betsy, the beauty and brains behind the blog, posts daily about whats going on around town – from events, to freebies, to shopping, to fun stuff in the burbs. Check it out.  




I can't make this stuff up and yes, this happened in real life in front of my very eyes.  So last Friday night I made the mistake of running into Wal-Mart to grab a few things.  "Wal-Mart" + "Friday Night" are two words that should not go together in the same sentence. This I know.  

Anywho - I'm checking out and about to go on my merry way when a man with a brown paper bag on his head walks by me and heads for the McDonald's at the front of the store.  Anyone who knows me IRL knows my phone is in my hands at all times, which comes in handy for moments like this.  My intent was just to snap a pic of this dude walking with a bag on his head, but things quickly escalated.

Next thing I know, he is stumbling backwards and falls to the ground. I'm pretty sure I had one hand over my mouth and the other still snapping pics.  I thought this was some freak under the influence of the sweet nectar and security would be over at any moment to escort him out.  That didn't happen.  Paper bag man just quickly popped back up and just walked right of out of Wal-Mart like what I just saw didn't even happen.  I felt like I was in the Twilight zone. Don't go to Wal-mart on a Friday night is the moral of this story.

If you saw this beauty in person you would die.  I had to have it and now it's on it's way to me! Yipee.

Found these instructions on how to make bacon in the oven at the blog Mom & Wife and have been cooking bacon like this for the past month. Legit, the easiest and best way to make bacon IMHO.  You just put the bacon on a foil covered pan, put the pan in cold oven, turn to 400 degrees and bake for 20 minutes. While the bacon is baking you get to make the rest of your breakfast!  Life changing.  

Excuse me, sir.  Not liking my TV choices?
Poor guy got neutered and had to wear this cone when alone! ha.

Remember Alana, the Honey Boo BooChild break-out star from last season of Toddlers & Tiaras?  I posted about her here.  Yesterday it was announced that home girl is getting her own spin-off show on TLC!  I swear, this made my week.  If trashy reality TV is wrong, I don't want to be right. 


K, now it's your turn! Link-up bishes! What are you favorites from the week?

  2. I'm so glad you did a link-up! I am SO looking forward to checking out everyone's favorites!
    Congratulations on being featured! I wish I lived in that area, I love events and freebies haha.
    Totally agree: Walmart + Friday Night = A no go. That is hilarious!
    I am definitely trying out that recipe to make bacon in the oven - I make bacon more often then not and am so tired of getting splattered with grease! Question: Do you still get all the grease from the bacon? I need it for my biscuits and gravy :)
    Love your faves, as always :D
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. My mom taught me the bacon in the oven trick and that's how I've made it for the last two years! So much easier, and way less of a mess :) Loving all of your favorites! Your pupster is adorable (minus the remote chewing lol)!

  7. Holy "people of Wal Mart" moment dude... that's nuts! I wonder if he was initially planning on robbing McD's but his master plan was foiled when he fell and was too embarrassed to continue?? LOL. Craziness! p.s. Bear is SO stinkin' cute!!!!!

    Ummmm love trashy tv and I just can't help myself! Thank goodness for dvr right?!

    That is by far the easiest/best way to cook bacon!!! The chef where Jer works told me that is how they cook it and I've been doing it that way ever since! Love how crispy it gets! :)
    Can't wait to link up with this post!!!! :)

  14. Is it horrible that I am most excited about the bacon?? Life changing is right, I can't wait to try it... and easy enough to remember so I don't have to store a recipe anywhere. Awesome!

    Obviously I'm a bacon lover.

  15. W T F to paper bag man?! ...I'm way too lazy - I thought the easiest/best way to cook bacon was in the microwave :)

  18. a paper bag?? really? Although you DID say Wal-mart, so I guess I shouldn't be too terribly surprised.

    Aww, the cone of shame!! So sad :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm not surprised you saw that freak-o-nature at Walmart. Typical people of Walmart.

    Oh, and Honey Boo Boo? Absolutely! Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  20. that picture of Bear with the remote is adorable! One of my kitties always has to lay on top of the remote. No matter where it is, she finds it and lays on it.

  29. I don't think it matters where you live. Wal-mart on a Friday night is ALWAYS a bad idea. I had a friend who used to say, "Stay out of Wal-Mart on Saturday. That's when all the people crawl out of their houses."

    ReplyDelete
  30. That guy is weird! There's some pretty crazy people out there...
    Great post!
    Have a beautiful weekend, Hun!

  31. Oh boy. I cannot wait to tell Mr that Honey Boo Boo has her own show!! Hahaha! He hates my T&T addiction!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. OMG I am laughing out loud at the man with the paper bag over his head - i actually started laughing when I saw the picture.... and then laughed harder at the story. Oi Vey.

    And. Um. Hi. Those furbaby pictures. Super AWWWW. the cone of shame. poor bebe!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. OMG I can't wait to see this Honey Boo Boo show. I love Toddlers and Tiaras!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am going to have to try bacon this way... I LOVE bacon but hate the way it smells up the house while frying (and lingers for days), so maybe this will help?

    Hope you and Beth are having an amazing weekend, but hopefully crutches are not in the cards for this trip!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Haha!! Honey booboo child!! So funny. Just found your blog. Love it! Newest reader!

  37. Lindsey,

    I'm so excited to be your newest follower! I had some time to browse around & I'm loving your blog already! :) Sadly, I missed linking up for Friday Favorites last week, but I look forward to linking up this week! Hope you have a chance to check out my blog & follow back! http://justplainjade.blogspot.com

    Oh, & I saw the bacon trick on Pinterest a few months back & haven't cooked bacon on the stove top since! It's amazing & as you said gives you time to prep the rest of your breakfast. DOUBLE AWESOME! lol.

    XoXo
