I know Friday is half way over, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to link up for a Friday Favorite’s post because…well…they are one of my favorites. 🙂
I’m a mom, so you can’t expect me to be on time for anything until 2033. This includes appointments, blog posts, responding to e-mails, airport arrivals, etc. I will be late until Atlas is capable of feeding, changing and taking care of himself (& let’s face it – we probably can’t expect those things to happen any time in the next 2 decades – I think we all know a grown man or 2 who still isn’t fully capable of those things).
Anyways, better late than never. Here are a few of the things that I’m lovin’ this week…
1. My vitamins.
I have been fighting something fierce (think sore throat, aches, cough, etc) since Tuesday and I think the only reason it hasn’t taken me totally down is because I’ve been doubling up on my vitamins. I think my body is having a tough time handling Polar Vortexes + public transportation (sucky combo), but I think Juice Plus is keeping me from going down for the count.
2. Group texts with my mom and sisters.
Even though we all live in different states, it is so nice to chat with them every day. Our ongoing group texts encourage me and keep me laughing on days when I’m stuck inside due to cold temperatures and cold viruses.
3. Brotherly love.
4. These Powerberries are the jam.
Trader Joe’s does it again. And it is official – I like all things dark chocolate, which sort of makes me feel like an adult because only adults like things like dark chocolate and red wine. Also, I just started to enjoy lemon things this past year and that made me feel like I was getting old. I used to think only grandma’s enjoyed things like lemon bread when I was a kid…but now I crave lemon bread from time to time and I can’t help but think that is a sign that I’m getting old. ←There’s your totally random, useless piece of information of the day.
5. Home cooked meals and snacks!
I’m going to toot my own horn for a second. I only ordered food ONCE this week (the truffles from momfukus – not even sorry about that though). That may not sound like a big deal, but I assure you it is. I was ordering food a lot over the last several weeks because in NYC that is just what you do. You have cookies delivered at 9pm and smoothies delivered at 9am. It’s the norm. But it is bad for your bank account and skinny jeans. So, I decided to start making all our meals and snacks this week and it was a success! I almost caved today and ordered soft serve ice cream from momofukus but I stayed strong, thanks to Dave’s encouragement (see above screen shot of our texts). I’m confident if I ordered oatmeal cream pie soft serve, that would make the Friday Favorite’s list next week though.
Cooking meals and baking up my own snacks really isn’t bad. I enjoy knowing exactly what I’m putting into my body. So I say, “Holla for home cooked meals!”
No telling how many readers I just lost due to the above statement. #dorkaward.
6. This laugh. It is my all time favorite.
Other favorites include scrambled eggs with buffalo sauce and ketchup (I tried taking a photo of this – it is just too ugly to share, but too delicious to keep to myself), this series (if you have 20 minutes, watch part 4), 40 degree temps (oh yes, that is happening in NYC this weekend) and this shaving cream (random, but I’m really loving it).
Head on over to Katie’s blog to check out her favorites from the week! Her posts always make me smile! 🙂
