Friday Favorites {#155}

Hello and happy Friday!

Shew! This week has felt like a long one. It’s just been extra busy, and I’m thinking it’s not going to be much different in May.

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

Here are some favorites from the week:

The kids had a track meet on Monday, and Hayden was back in action after his back injury. Both had a pretty good meet, and Hayden qualified for state in the 1600m. He’s close to running the mile in under 5 minutes which is another goal of his this year.

We tried Crumbl Cookie last weekend, and we are still thinking about those cookies. So good.

I finished another Bodi (Beachbody) program… Fire and Flow. I really enjoyed this program. The “fire” aspect is more weight training and cardio whereas the “flow” part is more yoga and some Pilates. After the first “flow” workout I did, I remember thinking I wasn’t sure if I’d like that part…well, I ended up really loving it. I got used to the slower (yoga style) pace, and it felt good to stretch with “flow” after the “fire” workouts. Also, as the program went on, so did the intensity. Some of the “flow” workouts reminded me a bit of Pure Barre.

Anyway, I’m glad I stayed the course and ended up really loving these workouts…and I wanted another badge in the Bodi app.

How pretty is this rainbow from last Saturday? I had to stop and take a photo!

Trader Joe’s had peony tulips, and I couldn’t resist buying them.

I tried a new dinner recipe idea this week.

I saw this “meatball biscuit cup” meal idea on one of those Facebook videos…

Here’s what you need:

  • Flaky biscuits – so you can pull them apart easily
  • Frozen Italian meatballs
  • Marinara
  • Italian seasoning
  • Shredded parm or mozz (or both)

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Spray muffin tins with cooking spray
  • Pull apart the biscuits (One biscuit provided the base for two muffin cups) and put them in the muffin tins.
  • Spoon marinara in the biscuit cup
  • Place a frozen meatball in the biscuit cup.
  • I then topped each with a bit more sauce and sprinkled some Italian seasoning on each one.
  • Sprinkle with your cheese choice or combo.
  • Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

This dinner was super quick and delish…I made 18 cups, and we had some leftover for lunch/dinner the next day.

Favorite Kid Quote(s):

It’s been a minute since I’ve shared a kid quote (or two), but Hadley had me laughing this week.

One night at dinner, she said the school day went by slowly because she left her water bottle at home. I just kind of looked at her like, “huh?” Apparently, she has a hydration schedule throughout the day, so without her water bottle, she had trouble keeping track of time.

Also, Hayden’s phone recently quit working which meant he got an unplanned upgrade. Hadley likes to tell us when her phone is “glitchy” now in hopes of a new one. The other night, I mentioned that it didn’t seem so glitchy anymore, and she said it started to work after “I powered off my phone…I mean tablet “😆 She sure isn’t subtle about her desire to have a better phone.

Favorite Mom Meme:

Speaking of Hadley…this is her…

She likes to tell the details of her entire day at 10:00 PM. I’m not a detail person, so along with that and her timing, I’m usually wondering why she didn’t share about her day at 5:30.

Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday

This is our first spring without baseball in many years. The kids were on the same baseball team for a few years. I love this pic from April 2015 when they were Timber Rattlers!

Weekly Recap:

Here are my posts from the week. I had a mix of memes, cookies, books, and musings!

Tomorrow, I have a Share 4 Somethings Saturday post for you too!

What are your weekend plans? Fingers crossed, I think the rain should be gone by this evening’s track meet. We have a few other plans this weekend, but that’s it for athletics!

Have a great weekend.

  1. I know – I can’t be fully present at 10 pm! Why do they do this? Good job on your Fire and Flow and your motivation. Can you send some over to me?
    I hope you have a relaxing and fun weekend!


  2. Well done to Hayden in qualifying for the state. I am always amazed that people can run so fast. I am not a runner.
    Those cookies do look so good. I think I would choose the one with the pink frosting.
    That meatball biscuit cup meal looks interesting. I think it’s something my family would all love.

  3. Oh yes, it seems like my boys only want to have lengthy talks when I am most unable to listen. LOL. That workout series sound wonderful! We’ve been having some crazy beautiful rainbows here the past few nights right around dinnertime.
