Friday Fascinations: What I am LOVING this Week!

Goodness!  It has been an exciting summer full of fun things and fun places.  And I am really trying to focus in on the things I want to share or the next few months will be RAMBLE CITY!

1.  Time with my sister!

You read all about time I spent with my mom last week here.  This time, it was my sister.  In Vegas.  

Classy style.  Running and then drinking on the Strip.  Bud Light Platinum no less!

2.  The Spandits Vinyasa dress

My Review: You know when you are headed out for a night out in Vegas? Or you need a dress to wear to a beach vacation? Or how about your best friend's wedding shower? And you only have room in your suitcase for one dress? This is it! 

Doesn't wrinkle. Soft and buttery against your skin. And stylish with a cowl neck and a on style length! I got a Large and it was perfect. I am 5'6" and the dress hit above the knee. 

I wore it both with wedge heels and with flip flops. And got plenty of compliments both times!

3.  TRULY Spiked & Sparkling alcoholic WATER!

This is a thing!  I bought it at my local Trader Joe's and it tastes JUST like a lime sparkling water but it has alcohol.  What could possibly be wrong with that?!

It comes in Pomegranate and Grapefruit flavors too!  100 calories.  5% ABV.

4.  Meeting Social Media friends in real life!

I went to Vegas with my sister to see our dad.  I also got to see two women I have come to admire during my stint in the social media world!

First up, Melissa.  She loves Duran Duran more than even I do and let me have some of her drink!  And I met the awesome Jill!

I also got to meet Emily who graciously drove out of her way to come meet me!  How rad is that?!

I have said it before and I will say it again, Runners Make the Best Friends!

5.  This Cheesy Chicken Quinoa Casserole recipe from Eat Yourself Skinny

It is creamy, delicious and healthy!  All 4 members of my family LOVED it!

I have to admit I was nervous about serving quinoa but they didn't care.  They wolfed it down and it makes plenty so no worries about needing lunch the next day!

Today, I am linking up with MarCourtney and Cynthia - AKA the DC Trifecta, Nicole for Fit & Fashionable Friday and Jill for Fitness, Health & Happiness Link-Up! 

So, tell me something you are loving this week.  Any of the above?

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom
