Friday Favorites {#124}

Well, we made it to Friday! This week was a doozy with school (of course) and then plenty of kids’ activities every night. We’re ready for the weekend, but it looks like I will need to set an alarm for Saturday wake up. Oh well…it is what it is…

Today, I’m linking up with Andrea and Erika for this week’s Friday Favorites.

Here are some favorites from the week:

Favorite Pic:

We got Hadley’s dance studio headshots back, and there were so many good ones. It was hard to narrow down a fave, but this is the one I ordered…I can’t believe how grown up she looks!

Favorite Moment:

Speaking of grown up…Hayden (and Coach White!) had his first cross country race of the season, and I apparently need to train my eyes to look for a big kid out there running. I almost missed him as he ran by. He’s off to a very solid start with a second place finish. He’s put in a lot of time (and miles) this summer, and I can’t wait to see what he accomplishes this season!

Favorite Clothing Item:

I’ve been making a point to “shop my closet” (Travis really appreciates that too!), and I’ve shared my school teacher outfits the last couple of Wednesdays.

I was reunited with these Matilda Jane pants during my closet clean out, and I really loved Monday’s outfit. I felt put together and comfy all at once.

Favorite Scent:

Sunday started off cool and rainy, so I did exactly what you’d expect me to do: I lit a fall scented candle, of course. I’d been saving this Antique Candle Co. one for just the right time. The warm caramel crumble scent was a favorite way to start the day.

Favorite Food:

I tried a new slow cooker recipe (Creamy Crockpot Crack Chicken) this week, and it was a hit. I will definitely make it again. I only used two chicken breasts, and next time will use at least one more to guarantee leftovers.

Favorite Kid Quote:

Nothing in particular stood out this week, but instead just some extra one on one time with Hayden. Travis has been extra busy in the evenings (Hadley too), and it was just Hayden and I for dinner on Wednesday night. It was nice to have some solo time with him.

Favorite Mom Meme:

Or unload the dishwasher!

Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday

With cross country starting back up, here’s a little throw back to the kids’ first ever race when they were in Kindergarten. I’ve shared this before, but they were even in the local online magazine. They were so little…

Weekly Recap:

Here are my posts from this week…a little of this and a little of that…

What are your weekend plans? I don’t think we have much going on tonight, but Hayden has a cross country meet tomorrow, and then we have some other odds and ends to get accomplished this weekend.

See you back here Monday for some of my favorite memes this month.

  1. They both look like high schoolers -sorry, mama! What a great photo of Hadley! How did you serve the crack chicken? On a bun? I have everything except the bacon. I even have green onions because one of my meals this week for Erica and I is going to be buffalo chicken stuffed potatoes topped with green onions and celery and ranch on the side. I’m excited to try this, too!
    Happy, happy weekend! I felt like you this week because I had so much going on after school.


    1. I’ve indulged on nature’s own brioche buns recently — that being said, I’m taking leftovers of the chicken today in a 1 pt tortilla
      Both kids do look so much older and i think both will be out of braces in the next few months. I can’t imagine how much older they will look then.
      I used microwave bacon since it’s quick and crispy. I may steal that lunch idea. Sounds so good!


      1. I love brioche! Gret idea to put that in a 1 point tortilla. I was wondering if light or fat free cream cheese would work? Or, even a play on the recipe with laughing cow in a skillet? Oh, I could put that mixture in my roasted spaghetti squash possibly!
        Oh, yes, when they come out of braces it is a big change.
        Sounds like you are having more luck with lunches so far this year. You have said you don’t like packing it? I need to make the big mac salad soon, too!

      2. I can report back that it was good in the one point tortilla. 🙂 when I tracked it, I didn’t really put in all the ingredients…chicken, cream cheese, bun or tortilla… I bet that mix would be great with squash


      3. I did no tracking this week! I have got to next week. I did eat well, but when you don’t track…
        It was just so busy!
        I will let you know if I try that!
