Friday Favorites {#53}

Hello and Happy Friday! We had a good week around here, but we are certainly ready for the weekend!

While we had some snow on the ground, the kids still had school, but their teachers gave them some time off of the computer to get outside and enjoy what would have been a couple of snow days. Of course, I’m happy they had that extra time for fun, but Monday and Tuesday just seemed never-ending; I guess because we weren’t following our regular routine.

It’s finally Friday, so I’m linking up with Andrea for this week’s Friday Favorites post.

I’m starting off with a few favorites from each day this week…


Hadley’s fruit plate made me smile. 1. because she did it all herself and…2. because it looked so pretty!


3.5 inches of snow!

Homer and the kids had some fun out in the wintry weather and…

Hayden made a snow angel or two.


Homer posed for a pic while wearing his Valentine’s Day scarf. He’ll do anything for a treat (except come inside after he has escaped from the backyard!)

Also, I saw this cute llama succulent at Kroger, and thought it would be cute in Hadley’s room. She likes to have a little plant in her room, and this is perfect on her bedside table.


Amy had shared about how she recently made Two Ingredient Bagels. I turned to Google for a recipe, and these were so easy and delish. I made them Wednesday afternoon, and I will definitely make more this weekend. Everyone in the family loved them.

SO good!


Doesn’t every girl need her dog and disco ball light on while taking a math test?!? 😂

While I’m hopeful we will be back to school soon, I will miss this time home with them for little moments like these:

Favorite Kid Quote:

Earlier this week, I overheard Hayden, as he was hugging on Homer say, “Homer you have two jobs: to guard the house and look cute!” 😂 So sweet!

Favorite Food:

Well, our favorite food could be the bagels mentioned above, but our Girl Scout cookies came in, and we were all excited. We all have different faves: Hayden loves Lemonades, Travis prefers Caramel DeLites, Hadley enjoys Thin Mints (and Peanut Butter Patties), and I love the PB patties! The new cookie, the Toast-yay! is so good! Hadley sells until the end of the month, so I’m sure we’ll place another order since we can only gets these once a year!

Favorite Clothing Item:

This sweatshirt from @sweetmommablair ‘s Etsy shop arrived just in time for the Super Bowl…Go Chiefs!

Favorite Mom Meme:

This meme popped up in my Facebook memories, and I sure remember people asking me this when the kids were babies. I don’t get asked it as much anymore since Hadley’s about a head taller than Hayden! People probably just think they are close in age at this point…one minute apart to be exact.

Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday

Speaking of Facebook memories, this photo of Travis and Hadley popped up in my memories from 2017. It’s the first dad/daughter dance they went to a few years ago. This is the first year in four years there’s no dance. They always have so much fun with friends…both the daughters and the dads! This memory brought a tear to my eye. It’s such a special occasion for them, and I know they both love that event!

Weekly Recap:

I actually blogged all five days this week! In case you missed a post:

Before I go, I wanted to mention that Monday is our second Not Just a Mom link up of 2021. I’m co-hosting with these ladies:

and the topics is: Healthy Habits and Staying Motivated. Feel free to check out our posts on Monday and link up with us if you are a blogger!

This weekend we are cheering for the Chiefs. I don’t want to talk too much about it because I don’t want to jinx anything 😂 but GO KC!

I hope you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.

See you back here on Monday! Thanks so much for reading.

  1. I want that llama succulent! I will see if my Kroger has it. That is a perfect starter plant for a kid! This week was long for me, too. I need a day off! I don’t think the weekend is going to cut it. I called 7 parents and that was stressful. Students are over it, you know? Attendance is starting to get spotty for some. I hope you have a good weekend!

    1. Ever since the summer, she’s had a succulent (from Trader Joe’s), and love it. Now she has the llama one. And I know what you mean…students and parents are Over it. Our latest weekly phone calls from our acting superintendent are optimistic k-2 will go back after president day. And then gradual return after that. I hope that’s true. I call lots of parents and they’ve always been well received but I hear some sad stories and feel the parents frustration

      1. I can keep succulents alive! Wow – after Pres day – is that even 6 weeks after the elem got their shots? The earliest our elem could go back is 3/19. Lots of our teachers are upset and don’t feel safe. I guess we also don’t have faith that our district will buy/give us the protections in our classroom. I am
        Fine to go back if I can stay in front of room and have no hall duty. Ha!


  2. I love the look of your blog! Everything is so interesting and well designed. I feel you on the Girl Scout cookies. Interestingly enough that new French toast cookie isn’t available in CT, where we live. I bought them from a friend of mine who lives in Maine. Apparently there are two different Girl Scout cookie bakers, and they make different cookies 🤯 I have a post about two ingredient bagels, they are dreamy! Especially when they have the everything seasoning on them.

    1. I just tried the two ingredient bagels for the first time last week and put EBB seasoning on it. So good. Yes, some people call cookies tag a long, do si do, etc which I’m not used to but I guess it depends on the baker. I love all the cookies haha
