Friday I’m in Love

Happy last Friday of September! If you’re new here, on Fridays we share what we’re loving each week. It can be anything…and really, it’s always the little things that are the best. There are deets at the bottom on how you can join in on the fun, too. Let’s get started…

o n e

It’s officially fall!! If you are actually experiencing fall right now, I am jealous. According to this, Orlando won’t start feeling fall until October 28th….. bummer. It’s ok though, because this week, I got out ALL of the fall decorations so at least the inside of my house feels like fall…. then this weekend we will go jump in the pool and pretend like it’s still summer. #floridaproblems

Vikings Become 1st NFL Team To Partner With Mamava, Install Lactation Suites For Breastfeeding Moms

As an avid sports fan and a mama, I am in love with this. Bravo, Vikings, bravo! And look how fancy these things are…

This…all. of. this. I have caught myself singing “when bedtime comes, I will sing hallelujah” this week. Catchy and yet so true.

Honorable mention this week goes to 100 Moves Dance Scenes Mashup to Uptown Funk

This is truly one of those little things, but I seriously love our pediatrician’s office. We’ve made THREE visits to the office in the past week and each time they have gotten us an appointment within the hour and this week even stayed a little late to make sure we were seen. I was already feeling so thankful for them and the next day saw another mom on Facebook complaining about what a long wait they had at their own pediatrician’s office and it made me even MORE thankful.

Greg and I love iced coffee and Starbucks iced coffee, so when Greg found a deal on the Starbucks Iced Coffee K-Cups (60 count!!), we jumped on it. They are SO good. We got a sweetened and a vanilla sweetened. Yum!

A post went viral on Facebook this week sharing a safety tip for iPhone users. In the case of emergency, anyone can see your emergency contact information as long as you update your information in the Health app on your phone. Make sure that you select the “show in lock screen” button so it can be accessed when your phone is locked. Not only is this great to have on your phone, but also great to know where to check on someone else’s phone if needed. See the original post here and a full article on this feature here.

I have jumped on the avocado toast bandwagon breakfast recently and found 11 Easy Ways to Fancy Up Your Avocado Toast. I love feta cheese, but only buy it when it is buy one, get one free (BOGO) at Publix. Lucky for me, that was this week, so I have been having toast with avocado, feta cheese, and a dash of salt & pepper for breakfast. YUM. I am excited to try some of the other recipes listed.

Is it too early for Halloween pajamas? I think not.

I asked Greg what he was loving this week and he said (1.) NFL football is back and (2.) the Mets, again. The Mets swept the Nationals this week in come-from-behind wins in all three games to all but punch their ticket to the post-season. Needless to say, it was tense, but there was a lot of celebrating happening in our house this week. The NFL officially kicked off last night and we are both very excited that football is back, even though Greg has already disowned the Redskins. Go Colts!

i ran the lady track shack 5k on saturday morning. it was cold. more details to come.

after my race, we took the kids to the school parking lot to let them drive their cars.

here is a glimpse of crosby’s senior pictures in 18 years.

it was hilarious watching them drive around.

after nap time, i took the kids down to the science center to meet ben & molly for a play date. it was super fun.

after church, we headed to bj’s. kenley asked for a picture. crosby clearly wasn’t thrilled about it.

we took advantage of a beautiful day and headed out for a bike ride!

our playground just got new sunshades and we are so happy about them!

due to a no nap day for kenley, both kids were asleep by 7pm and greg and i were parked on the couch for the superbowl. even though we weren’t attending a party, we still ate appetizers for dinner. and it was awesome.

how was your weekend?

Friday I’m in Love

It’s Friday and I’m back to blogging! Can you believe it’s been over three months since our last Friday post?
While my little blogging break this summer was needed, I definitely got to the point where I missed sitting down and just writing.
If you’re new around here, let me introduce you to our Friday I’m in Love series.
Each Friday, Misha and I share a few of our favorite things from the week.
Sometimes there are big things, but most of the time it’s just the little things that keep us going and are worth sharing. We’d love for you to join us. Either link your own post back here or leave a comment and share what you’re loving.
You can take a look at past weeks here.

FOOTBALL. IS. BACK.
Thank goodness! College football returned last week and the NFL officially started last night.
We’ve been watching a lot of baseball this summer so I’m ready for a change of pace.
I’m also very excited about the Colts vs. Broncos opening up Sunday Night Football this weekend.

t w o

In addition to watching baseball, we’ve also started SUITS on Amazon Prime.
We are obsessed! It’s so good. We’re into season two now and we watch it every chance we get.

t h r e e

This one has two parts. First, I will admit I am loving Taylor’s new song right now.
Second, minor league baseball will always having a special place in my heart and this shows just how awesome it really is.

f o u r

We recently learned the trick of cooking bacon in the oven and we’ll never go back.
It’s seriously amazing!

This is the epitome of “it’s the little things”,
but this week I was able to wear jeans to work three of the five days.
It really is such a game changer, especially on a Monday morning getting ready.

t w o

My friend sent me a link to the Ergobaby Performance Collection Carrier this week and it looks amazing!
Granted, I have not tried this yet, but I think it would be perfect for the summer months; and really year around here in Florida. Where was this two and a half years ago?!

Does anyone have it? I want to hear more about it!

t h r e e

Blake was drafted #3 overall last night in the NFL draft!
I’m ready to go to the Colts game in Jacksonville in September. Who’s in?

f o u r

I hated the guilt I felt when I watched this video, but I love how eye opening it is.
It’s beautifully put together with a great message. I hope you’ll watch (if you haven’t already).
I always think about unplugging more, so here’s to actually doing it!

Have a great weekend friends!

ready for the big game!

this was the first year in a long time we didn’t have a superbowl party,
but hanging out just the two of us watching the game and commercials was just what we needed.
unfortunately, it wasn’t as good of a game as we would have liked.

of course, the weekend went by way too fast, but it was a productive one.
how was your weekend?

In recent weeks, our Publix deli has gotten an online ordering system,
where you can order online before coming to the store… Ah-mazing.
Greg is officially obsessed. (He’s usually the one who goes to Publix, while I go to Target – divide and conquer.)
We buy deli meat & cheese each week for lunches, so it is a total time saver for us.
Being able to beat the crowd and just pick up our order when we arrive is clutch.
Good work Publix…shopping with you is truly a pleasure.

t w o

Super Bowl XLVIII
Even though the Colts aren’t playing in the big game,
I am pretty excited about the Super Bowl on Sunday.
We have family in both Denver & Seattle, so I am excited for them to cheer for their own teams.
I will definitely be rooting for the Broncos and Peyton!
It’s no surprise that I still love him and would love to see him win another ring.
So, go Broncos!

After a couple rainy days this week,
I’ve decided Kenley is getting some rain boots for Valentine’s Day.
Just look at the cute option out there (for a little lady or fella):

Polka dot // Ladybug Rain Boot // Frog Rain Boots

Orson Rain Boots // Strawberry Toss

f o u r

We are big fans of Chiptole, so we tried this recipe of their cilantro lime rice.
Oh, so good!
We cooked the brown minute rice and mixed in the other ingredients,
and served it with grilled chicken, peppers, and mushrooms with a little bit of fajita seasoning.
We’re definitely adding this to our line up of dinners.
Yum!
