Free People Lace Tank (on major sale!), also available here | Similar Sunnies ($14!) | Cognac PumpsLaptop Skin

Happy Friday, everyone!! Whewwwww what.a.week. It has been so hectic around here that I don't even remember what I did this week.....let alone this month! That's when you know you've been busy! Today's post is one of my "Friday Favorites" - basically catching my friends and family up on what is going on in my real life! I know sometimes blog posts can get too "sponsored" or "sales-y" so I like to throw a little behind the scenes action in from time to time. I hope it helps any new readers get to know me a little more, as a real human and friend!

First off, I want to give everyone a heads up that there is a GIVEAWAY going on on my Instagram (@amandasOK) this weekend for a free product from CaseApp! I have a laptop skin and a phone case (shown in the photo above) and love them - you can choose from their designs, design your own from scratch, or use some of their templates to make a design uniquely yours. All you have to do to enter is follow me on Instagram, like the CaseApp photo and tag a friend. Good luck!

fitness instructor

I officially started teaching "PHIT" (Pilates Hybrid Interval Training) at Beyond Studios and am loving it so far. Even though I still can't do much working out myself (still recovering from shoulder surgery) it is exciting to share my love for fitness with others and keep myself motivated in the mean time. My whole life I've always wanted to be a teacher of whatever extra-curricular activity I'm into, so I'm glad that dream has finally become a reality! There is nothing quite like sharing your passion. I taught four classes already this week and have one more to go tomorrow morning. Two of my classes were 5:30 A.M. which is an adjustment for me, ha. I've been chugging caffeine all week and am ready to sleep in come Sunday!

the barn in stillwater oklahoma

I'm still working at my day job, though, and one of my responsibilities as a Marketing Specialist is being the Secretary Chair on the Credit Unions for Kids Committee (we raise funds for the Children's Miracle Network). Every few months, the committee members from OKC and Tulsa meet in the middle in Stillwater - I always love the chance to visit my sweet little college town and see my Credit Union friends from across the state! The Barn is a drive-thru liquor store and is a Stillwater legend. It brings back so many memories.

royal street new orleans

As you may have seen in Wednesday's post, Cole and I recently visited New Orleans! It was such a fun trip - we both agree that it a place we could go back to over and over again and never get tired of it! HOWEVER, my poor digestive system. I still haven't fully recovered from all the fatty foods. My stomach does not handle high-fat very well. On our last day in NOLA I could barely walk from all the stomach pain! It made me happy to come home and get back into a healthy eating routine haha.

kylo the mountain dog

Speaking of coming home......the best part of a trip is always coming home to this guy (and Chloe, but she's not as photogenic ha).

american eagle blouse

I just wanted to share this picture because I LOVE this shirt! Its from American Eagle....... I'm over here like, am I 14 again? Why am I loving everything at AE and Abercrombie?! They have both seriously reworked their lines and have the cutest everyday stuff that is acceptable for adults, as well as teens. I've bought so many AE items lately its almost funny! Anyways, this shirt is on sale for $14 - I've worn it repeatedly to work and have gotten so many compliments on it. It also comes in black!

saint paddy's day in oklahoma city

saint patricks day bachelorette party

For Saint Paddy's Day I got to celebrate with a good friend of mine for her bachelorette party! It was such a fun time - if you're in OKC, definitely give the Bricktown Bike Bar a try if you have a group together. It wears you out more than you'd think - I was having trouble drinking my beer and peddling at the same time, ha! But it was such a fun experience and a wonderful celebration for a beautiful Irish Bride! Yay #Doonguires! I love weddings!

And thats a wrap! What do you have going on this weekend? I'm heading to Texas to spend some time with my best friend from high school. We're doing a North Texas winery tour - a perfect girl's getaway!! I will fill you in soon and let you know if it is worthwhile.

Whatever you're up to, have a wonderful time! As always, thank you so much for taking time out of your day to spend with me. It means so much!
