Friday Favorites {#143}

Hello and Happy Friday!

How was your week? Ours was pretty good. I feel like we are finally back in a pretty good routine after break…it always takes a few weeks to get back on track.

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

Y’all, for the first time ever, on a Friday, I don’t have much to share. I mean, we did things…but I didn’t really document. Hadley tried out for a club volleyball team and is excited about her team.

Hayden had his first 7th grade basketball game, but I only took a few pics and they are mostly blurry. Oh well. I try to just enjoy the game most of the time anyway.

I thought I’d do something a little different and share some of my favorites.

I feel like this month I’ve shared a bit more about only me thanks to the Bloganuary challenge and my other blog post topics…so let’s keep that going, I guess.

I saw this on Pinterest and thought it looked fun!

  • Favorite gum: I don’t chew gum.
  • Favorite candy or treat: My sweet tooth is a real problem. I love a mini snickers or scoop of ice cream.
  • Favorite emoji: I feel like this one is pretty much on brand for my life right now: 🫠
  • Favorite color: My house is mostly gray, cream, and hints of light turquoise
  • Favorite ice cream: Mint Chocolate Chip (and peppermint during the holidays)
  • Favorite breakfast: cream of wheat
  • Favorite store or brand: Besides Amazon, I love Target.
  • Favorite season: FALL!
  • Favorite dinner: pasta!
  • Favorite dessert: Rice Krispie treat
  • Favorite sport: I love watching most sports…college basketball and NFL are usually my top two. I love watching Hadley play volleyball. I love watching Hayden run. I love having an MLB (KC Royals if I can) game on in the background while at home.
  • Favorite activity: reading (and napping. haha)
  • Favorite way to spend a Saturday: not waking up to an alarm, watching my kids play a sport or activity, spending time at home
  • Favorite song: Luke Combs’ Going, going, gone
  • Favorite subject: English (obviously)
  • Favorite magazine: People
  • Favorite book: too many to count!
  • Favorite band or music: country
  • Favorite flower: peonies or hydreangeas
  • Favorite team or player: Chiefs
  • Favorite restaurant: y’all…I love Jason’s Deli for something quick. As far as a family restaurant, I love Puccini’s, and for a nicer restaurant, I love OBC Kitchen and Carson’s. (all local places)
  • Favorite place(s): San Diego, CA, Siesta Key, FL, and Charleston, SC
  • Favorite movie: The Parent Trip (original)
  • Favorite game: Wheel of Fortune on tv, but as a family I like most any game except Taco, Goat, Cat, Pizza

What are some of your favorites?

Favorite Mom Meme:

Relatable, right?

Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday:

2014 …the first time the kids went sledding. We had that red saucer until last year…it was the best on the snow…until one of them ran over a big rock! #bigkidsdoingtricks

Weekly Recap:

I’m on a roll posting in January thanks to Bloganuary.

What are your weekend plans? We have no real plans tonight or tomorrow night. Hayden has a race on Sunday, and then we’ll cheer on the Chiefs. Let’s hope Mahomes’ ankle holds up. #fingerscrossed

I will have a post tomorrow too. I’m joining the Share 4 Somethings link up, and then I might as well share a Bloganuary post on Sunday to round out the month.

Thanks so much for reading.

  1. We lost our Puccini’s! That was a great place to take kids! I loved reading these responses. I love a rice krispie treat. Sometimes I like them with peanut butter mixed into the marshmallow. Have you had them like that with chocolate on top and called a scotcheroo? I think?
    You should make the bacon and tomato pasta by Shay. I also made up a pasta last night for dinner for just me – whole wheat penne, bacon, and sundried tomatoes.

    1. We love Puccini’s. We have two here. It’s a great spot. I love scotcheroos. I think after you mentioned them to me, I made them and then shared the recipe. My mom used to occasionally make them. We just got a call at 6:15. No school due to ice. ??


      1. I still don’t know why ours closed!
        Oooh, aren’t they so good! I love peanut butter so much alone and with chocolate.
        What? You had a long weekend! I am so jealous!


      2. Ha! I would take it as long as I didn’t have to make it up. We still do not have a solid snow day plan that I am aware of! Will it be traditional or virtual? Argh!


      3. We all couldn’t believe it wasn’t an NTI day. I’m guessing they will be from here on out. I have no clue if we will have to make it up. We always go more days than we need to sometimes we don’t make up a couple.


  2. Oh that is fun; I’m definitely going to save that graphic and use it at some point! We do have the same favorite flowers.. but that’s about it. I can never pass up a bowl of pasta though I don’t know if I’d think of it as my favorite meal.

    1. I don’t like oatmeal but love cream of wheat. My kids do too. I’m sure that’s not a common response haha. I don’t eat breakfast but typically have cream of wheat on Saturday or Sunday
