Friday Favorites: Bachelorette, Hiking, & Vacations

Another week has gone by and we’re officially about to be in August! Having lived in California for the last 2 years, I am seriously missing the fall weather and change of seasons and getting to wear boots! But with our impending move to Seattle this fall, I’m getting really excited! We still have a few months but I’m eagerly anticipating it.

What fun things are you all up to this weekend? Can’t wait to catch up with you all in the link ups!THE NEW YOUCall me a sucker, but I love these two together. I hope they will make it and be one of the Bachelor franchise success stories. Look how happy they are. I love love and am rooting for these lovebirds.


And I love that Jimmy Kimmel made them promise to marry each other or at least be together a year or pay him $1,000. 🙂

the-new-you1On Tuesday of this week, I was featured on my friend Molly’s blog Colors of Life about my love of hiking. (Thanks again for asking me Molly!)

Here is one of my favorite photos from a hike Dave and I did last July in Zion in the Narrows. I’ll blog about that hike this upcoming Thursday.

It’s getting me so excited for Fuller House next year on Netflix! Bring it on. It was such a staple growing up in my house and I’m excited so much of the original cast is coming back. I can’t wait to see how they do it!jsfhfive10On Tuesday the team at Lauren Conrad came up with a list of their Top 10 Vacation Destinations. I am a lover of travel and am always interested to hear where other people enjoy going on their vacations. It makes me want to create a list of my own!


Friday has become the day of the link ups. Here are the wonderful women I’m linking up with each week:

  1. I didn’t want Jimmy Kimmel but that’s hilarious!!! I bet they have to pay hehe. Yay for you coming over to guest post! But i’m MOST excited for Fuller House. I grew up on Full House. Every day after school!

    1. I think since they’ve waited SO long to do a reunion that it’s going to be really good. I hope so anyways!

      Don’t know if you watched arrested development but their reunion season wasn’t as good as I was hoping. But I have high hopes for fuller house!

      Have a good weekend Molly!!

    That Jimmy Kimmel thing is so funny. I saw the dress shopping thing and laughed alot. Who knows who will make it these days? I thought for sure Chris and Whitney would 😦 I hate when they break up it makes me mad because we saw them fall in love! Fuller House sounds amazing. I can’t wait!

    1. I love that jimmy kimmel watches the shows and his commentary always cracks me up!

      Yes that hike was really something! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! Have a great weekend Jenny!
