Friday Five/Favorites + Fit N’ Fashionable Friday

Hope everyone [who celebrates it] had a fun, happy and relaxing Christmas! :] I’m linking up today with Friday Favorites (Housewife Glamour & Running 4 Cupcakes), Friday Five (Courtney of Eat Pray Run, DC, Cynthia of You Signed Up for What?!? and Mar from Mar on the Run), and Fitness Friday with Jill Conyers today! Buttons are at the bottom if you want to find out more about em’!
BUT FIRST.

Check out the new cover photo on the Girls Gone Sporty facebook! 😀

sportyis_Alright, now that I’m done basking in psuedo-internet-glory, here are my favorites from this week!

Repurposing cheap finds

About 1.5 months ago, I discovered Gabe’s and went frolicking through the store in search of cheap finds. I should probably preface that I detest maxi dresses because I think they look like shapeless sacks, and  my personal preferences do not encompass looking like a sack of potatoes. :/ I’m sure they’re flattering on some people, but to me, they’re pretty much the least flattering dress known to humankind. D:

Hence this face.

Hence the face(s).

But to each their own, right? I should just live and let live. While I was looting Gabe’s for awesome finds, I happened upon a super-super cheap grey one.

(By super-super cheap, I mean that it was $1.)

The material was supersuper soft, but strapless, shapeless dresses really aren’t my thing. So the wheels in my head started turning…after all, who said it had to be a dress?! 😀

Meet my new infinity scarf!

Meet my new infinity scarf! :]!

Christmas decorations!

 

The Asylum (Lewisburg, WV)

This is quite possibly the prettiest bar I’ve ever been in!

They had pretty drinks, but since I don't drink, I had a peppermint tea. :P

Trish sent me pretty soap and homemade baked treats!

Old school photos!

Donna sent me pictures that she took from when we were volunteering at Friends For Life over the summer! :] We tried so, so hard to get the dogs to all be looking at the camera at the same time, but it proved to be impossible. Still adorable though! <3 (For the record, this is basically how I got my cardio for the bulk of this year.)

BJJ Problems

This was pretty much inspired by Phil telling me that his friend texting him the following picture:

I found it rather hilarious, and have since found a bunch of other ones that I’m a fan of. 😛 Here are two of em’.

    Very nice picture on the Girls Gone Sporty Facebook with you included there! Congrats and cheers to that. I think it’d be really fun to try pole-dancing sometime. I’m so game. Glad you had a great holiday, Farrah!

      Thank you! It’s definitely a lot of fun (although it can get somewhat painful as time goes on; I like to think of the bruises as battle scars of glory though)! 😀

      Hope you have an awesome weekend and a wonderful time in Austin! <3
