Friday Favorites {#144}

Hello and Happy Friday!

This week was super busy, but it did include a snow (icy) day! Now, I think we have milder temps on the way.

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

Here are some favorites of the week:

Hadley and I baked a cake last Friday. We’re trying to make a cake a month, and this was our first one of the year. Hadley did most of the work, including decorating it. We made this Chocolate Chip cake, and it was really good.

On Saturday morning, we went to my nephew’s basketball game. He did such a good job, and his sister did some cheers at halftime!

My brother gave my niece his phone, and then sent me this selfie she took. Too funny.

On Sunday, Hayden had an indoor track meet in Louisville. With basketball going on, he has only been running a couple of days a week, but still had a PR in the mile.

Of course, my household was super excited with the Chiefs big win! We are close to Bengals country, so that made this win even more exciting. We can’t wait to cheer on the Chiefs in the Super Bowl.

Snow day pancakes on an icy Tuesday morning hit the spot!

Hayden’s basketball team is off to a solid start. They had two wins this week!

Fave Mom Meme:

This made me laugh…but it also reminded me that I want to pick up a couple of things for the kids for Valentine’s Day.

Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday

With Hayden’s basketball season starting up, I love this 3rd grade throwback to these two cute ballers. This is the year that Travis coached Hadley’s team to the championship victory! Hayden was on a team with a great group of kids too.

Weekly Recap:

Well, I continued with Bloganuary on the weekends, so I have a full week of posts:

I guess my blogging streak of 33 posts is coming to an end. I enjoyed tackling some Bloganuary posts on the weekends this month. Honestly, I have a bit more time to blog on the weekends, but readership is down on the weekend, so obviously, Monday-Friday blogging makes the most sense. Who knows, maybe I’ll throw in a random weekend post every now and then.

What are your weekend plans? Hadley has some fun planned with her friends tonight, and Hayden has basketball this weekend. I’m not sure what else we’ll do. See you back her Monday for my Amazon purchases this month.

Have a great weekend!

  1. You did it! That was fun. I would always forget that you were blogging on weekends and go back to them on Monday or during the week.
    I went to bed at 8:30 last night. So tired with what felt like two Mondays this week – lol – and just the emotions of the Ernie situation that are catching up with me.

    1. I appreciated not having to think of topics haha. I’ve gone to bed by 9 a couple days this week. So tired and next week will be long for me. I loved the insta pic of Ernie playing. What a sweet boy. I’ve been thinking about you all.


  2. Yay for snow/ice days! We had three this week here near Memphis. I was shocked! Our roads finally cleared yesterday afternoon, so they were definitely warranted in canceling school for 3 days in a row. That meme made me laugh out loud and roll my eyes all at once. I feel so bad for young moms who feel like they can’t keep up on social media! I’m glad that wasn’t a thing when mine were younger. Happy Friday, my friend! I hope you have the best day.

    1. Yay for a couple of snow days. I keep hoping we get one big snow and then i will be ready for spring. I know what you mean. I don’t feel the pressure but also I feel like we get through November birthday, Christmas and then I pick them up a few things for Valentine’s Day and Easter. I think growing up , we got some candy and that was it


  3. That cake just looks so amazing and I can’t wait to see what you come up with each month. We’re having a little weekend freeze and then I THINK it’s supposed to warm up again next week. I’m staying cozy by the fire today.


  4. Brand new here Jen! What an amazing blog! I’ll be following along! Loved this post and might join in one day – loved the bonus flashback post of the kids! They grow so fast and I find myself missing the little people they once were.
