Friday Favorites {#147}

Hello and Happy Friday!

How was your week? We had a pretty good one…starting with a three day weekend which is always nice! Of course, our week included basketball, volleyball, dance, and schoolwork! Pretty typical as of late.

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

Here are some favorites from the week:

Starting the week with no school on Monday was definitely a favorite for all of us. After being pretty lazy on Sunday, I was very productive on Monday. Also, the weather was so nice and Hadley was feeling better which meant the kids played outside with friends quite a bit.

On Monday, I finished the Beachbody program LIIFT 4. I really enjoyed it! It’s eight weeks of workouts, four days a week. I always feel accomplished after completing one of these programs.

On Monday, we baked our February cake, we made Shay’s Red Velvet Bundt Cake.

Like last month, Hadley did the baking and decorating. We actually did make homemade cream cheese icing, and Hadley did a fancy drizzle! Nothing Bundt Cakes better watch out!

Kind of random, but when I went to start this post, I realized that yesterday was my 750th blog post. That feels like quite the accomplishment! I still love writing posts when I can and am grateful to still squeeze in the time to write pretty frequently.

The weather this week has been glorious. I have so many windows, that it’s nice to have all the natural light…and have my classroom windows open when I can.

No photo, but Hayden had an important ortho appointment yesterday. Eight weeks from now, he gets to get his braces off. His treatment plan was for 2.5 years, and that will make it a couple of months past that. I can’t wait to see his new smile in just a couple of months. Hopefully, he will let me take a photo! 😂

Third time is the charm…I finally had dinner with my friend Natalie last night at one of my favorite Lexington restaurants. We’ve been trying to get together for over a month, but she was sick, then I was sick…and last night we finally got the chance to catch up.

Gnocchi is my favorite, and if it’s on the menu, then I always order it.

Favorite Mom Meme:

This feels very relatable right now. Nothing super out of the ordinary, but honestly, this past year has probably been one of the hardest phases of parenting. We’re all just trying our best around here.

Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday:

I love this Facebook memory from 2014. Hayden was up past his bedtime, and I found him in his bedroom under his train table. The “funder” had scared him, so he got his construction worker hat with the light.

Just a sweet note: but when Hayden was little, he would call the electrical trucks “streamer trucks.” Finally, one day I asked him why he called them that and he said because the electrical wires look like streamers.

Too sweet.

Weekly Recap:

Here are my posts from the week in case you missed one:

What are your weekend plans? My kids have been counting down to Outer Banks season 3, and I think they plan on watching some (all?) of it tonight. This weekend, Hadley has her first dance competition of the season. I can’t wait to see her dances. She’s in four this year!

See you back here on Monday!

  1. I’m gonna watch Outer Banks, too!
    What a beautiful cake! Yay for windows – I have two in my room that I open as often as possible. That gnocchi looks amazing. I must admit that I have not had much in my life, but I should try it more. Congrats on both finishing BB and your 750th post!

      1. It’s cheesy, but you might get sucked in. I watched the last episode of last season yesterday as a refresher. Tom is going to watch it with me because he got into it last season, as ashamed as he is to admit it.

  2. Too funny; we FINALLY managed to have our friends over for dinner last night. This was our third time trying to get together too because of sickness. That cake is fabulous! I love the little x & o confetti pieces. My youngest son went through a phase where he slept UNDER his bed and I forgot to tell my mother in law and she totally panicked when she was babysitting and went to check on him. LOL.
