Friday Favorites: Life Just Got Awesome

So you might have wondered, "where the eff is Em?" "Why isn't she responding to blog posts?" "Why has she been MIA for the whole damn week?" Well bloggerville, I have some pretty exciting let's start with celebrating these Friday Favorites with Amanda!

::Favorite News:: THE HUBS GOT A NEW JOB AND WE'LL BE MOVING IN A MONTH! I thought about increasing the font plus caps lock but I thought that would have been a little too extreme. But really, I'm shouting this news from the rooftops. Upon receiving a call at work from Josh saying that he got the job, this was my reaction. Yes, it kind of looks like I have severe mensies cramps or something, but I promise this was an excited screaming face.

We'll be able to find a place without cutting so many corners and I've been dancing in my heels since! Watch out Zillow, Trulia, & Mrs. G are in the HOUSE. Well not yet...that's the point. :p

So as you can imagine, I've been so very productive at work....and by that I mean checking up on any new notifications Zillow brings about. I'm starting to collect boxes and packing all of my shit already. It's on.

::Fabletics:: Alright so aside from the fact that Kate Hudson co-founded this workout line which makes it fabulous by default, this athletic wear is SO up my alley. It's one of those VIP deals where they charge you a monthly fee and get a deal unless you opt out for that month before a certain date, but I ordered a racerback top and capris  for $30 including taxes and free shipping. A steal. I'll make sure to write a proper review when it delivers!

::Favorite Funnies::

:: Favorite Proverb:: I'm not Polish, but this proverb is probably the best ever.

::Favorite Album:: I've been obsessing over Sia's new album. Listen to it here!

Josh and I will be celebrating and toasting to his new job tonight! This weekend will be pretty crazy. Saturday will be spent researching homes to visit and Sunday I'll be running the Chicago 10k in the morning and then going to see the Goo Goo Dolls at a great outdoor venue in the city with Josh. Nostalgia overload. I saw them a few summers ago and my inner 90's child was screaming with delight throughout the whole thing. I'm hoping the 10k goes well. Whenever I've been going on my longer distance runs lately, I've been getting a vomity/upset stomach feeling and I have no idea what's up! Anyone else experience this? I haven't been changing my eating habits at all and I usually don't have anything prior to running. My stomach better shape the eff up come race day!

What is everyone else up to this weekend?! Lemme hear it!
