Happy Friday! “We maaaaadddeeee iiiiiittttttt!” –  in Chris D’elia’s drunk girl voice of course. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you have to watch this stand up comedian impersonate drunk girls. It’s definitely not appropriate for kids, but if you’re an adult, you will cry laugh for sure! And for some of you, it may hit a little too close to home haha…

So honestly, this video is the perfect segway into a new blog series I’m starting: Fun Sized’s Friday Feels.  Every week, I plan on sharing a few things that have given me “all the feels” as of late.  It could be anything from a new recipe I’m loving, a new book I’m reading, a new workout I can’t get enough of (if such thing exists haha), a new pair of shoes I’m crushing on, or even just a small life victory that is worth celebrating! Because let’s be honest, you turn on the news and are bombarded with how hopeless and depraved our world is.  It’s time we remind ourselves of God’s goodness and provision amidst the chaos of a sinful world- even if it is just celebrating the fact that I didn’t burn dinner and it actually tasted somewhat decent 😉

So without further adue, here are this week’s Fun Sized’s Friday Feels:

1. Watercolor Maxi Slip Dress

I posted this dress on Instagram earlier this week, and it definitely received some social media love! It’s flowy, lightweight, and the most beautiful watercolor print.  I think it would be the perfect Easter dress.  You could pair with these sandals for a more casual look or dress it up with some cute lace up heels. I mean, doesn’t it just make you want to frolic through some tulip fields?! It’s only about $60 AND maternity friendly for all my preggo gals out there!

2. The Perfect Sunless Tanner

I have been asked so many times lately where I get my spray tans.  And guess what? I don’t (unless I’m a bridesmaid)! I finally found the most amazing sunless tanner that doesn’t make you smell bad, doesn’t look streaky, and lasts for up to a week! And for those of you who are gasping at the fact that it costs $42, a little goes a long way! I bought a bottle at the beginning of last summer and have still not run out! But here’s the secret: you HAVE to buy the application mitt. This is how you avoid streakiness AND orange hands. It’s worth all 650 pennies.

3. Small Victory: I Haven’t Cheated Once!

For those of you who read my Lent post, I talked about the fact that giving up candy is one of the greatest sacrifices I’ve had to make in my adult life.  I’m a candy-holic and needed to prove to myself that I have some level of self control. But you know what the really funny thing about me giving up candy is? I have actually GAINED weight in the last few weeks. Instead of eating candy, I have replaced my sugar addiction with the more fattening sweet varieties: ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, cake, Creme Brûlée, etc. I’m not upset about it because the two scoops of Blue Bell ice cream drowned in Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup that I’m consuming before bed each night is #worthit. I just think the irony is definitely worth a chuckle.

Comment below and tell me what’s giving you “all the feels” on this fabulous Friday!  And guys, I have a feeling the perfect Easter dress will sell out quickly- so buy it NOW!

Cheers, Erin

    Good for you for giving up candy! I’m pregnant, so I figured I’m giving up a lot of things currently, and I could go with the giving up alcohol and cured meats for Lent 🙂 Love the maxi dress!
