Friday Favorites

Hey there, Friday! I am excited for this weekend because I am finally getting my hair done!!! I haven’t had it cut or colored since…September I think? Yeah, needless to say….it is well past needing done! I love catching up with my hair girl, and that feeling when you leave the salon looking fabulous! A dear friend of mine from Atlanta is coming out to Birmingham this weekend too!!! So after I get my hair done, Chris, Zoe and I will be meeting up with him and his wife and showing them around town! Read, eating lots of delicious foods! They are coming to Birmingham for a weekend getaway. People actually do that now, so you can too. Who else wants to come visit us?!

Favorite Moments:

–I spent a lot of time over the last few weeks collecting items for a consignment sale that my neighbor is having. It took several hours, but I finally got everything hung, pinned and priced! Then two of my neighbors came over and helped me carry them to the sale house. I hope that I make some money! I have 98 clothing items, 10 pairs of shoes and 57 pieces of costume type jewelry in this sale. I am so proud of myself for finally letting go of things I haven’t used in a long time…but was holding on to for whatever reason! And believe it or not, my closet is still full.

Bye Felicia!

–Yesterday, I grabbed some food from Chick Fil A (salad for me…damn diet) and took it to my sister’s office so that she could spend some time with Zoe. It was a much needed little getaway from our weekly routine, and Zoe just adores her aunts!

–Living out where we do has many benefits. The stars at night are breathtaking, it is quiet, you see lots of deer and wildlife, we drive past little lakes and beautiful farms. And then there are days when you roll your eyes because you hear the train coming and you know you are going to get stopped for awhile…but then you look over and you take in the view….and it just brings this calmness to you. I just love it! This train crossing through the open fields was so beautiful to me.

–Getting to see how much Zoe changes, even from week to week, is truly amazing! Β Just look at her sitting up away from the chair! She tries to sit up all the time now, and her little legs have been moving like crazy during tummy time. I can tell she is ready to start moving soon!

Favorite Recipe: I dug my Healthy Trim Mama Cookbook out to find some new recipes for next week. This looks simple enough! I hate eggs, but I need to start eating a proper breakfast again….

For a quick and easy breakfast meal, try these Sausage & Egg Breakfast Bowls! Easy to make and Trim Healthy Mama friendly!:


Favorite Lust: I don’t know why, but I am wanting the Apple Watch again. When it first came out, I didn’t want it. Then I wanted it real bad. Then I was like meh I could do without it. And now, it isn’t something I need at all…but I still want! And I want it to be waterproof. Damnit. Anyone have one and not love it and want to try to talk me out of it? That would be great, thanks.

Favorite Funnies:




And it's actually happened! It was very scary.:

hormone humour.. growth hormone:

Linking up with Amanda. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    I love you took the time to spend with your sister & your sweet girl got some aunt time. As an aunt, I know I always loved that too with my nieces.

    HAHA – I have to get up with my little blind boy every 3 hours & the other night when I was standing outside at 3am I thought the same stupid thing about the birds… they were acting like the sun was rising any second. I even yelled SHUT UP!!!!! πŸ™‚ haha

    I have been debating the Apple Watch, too, mainly because I like how it counts how many calories you burned during a workout. I need that validation. ha! Love that picture of the train – it truly is a gorgeous setting! Can’t wait to see what you buy during the sale. I’m ashamed to say I bought a TON of stuff. Oops.

    YES to calorie refunds, and lol at the birds. Seriously! And isn’t it amazing how much they change even from week to week, so many precious moments. Have a fun weekend with your friends and can’t wait to see how your hair comes out <3

    I love cleaning out my junk! It’s such a great feeling. I hope you sell some stuff!

    Hurrah for a clean out!

    Happy Friday! I hope you sell a lot at the sale. I love getting rid of things. We’re in the process of putting things together to be donated. I used to sell a lot online but with so many different buying and selling groups now I can’t seem to get things to move. Your views sound really pretty and I love when the stars look so bright and clear. We don’t have a lot of trains by us except for local commuter ones. I get annoyed when I get stopped for a few minutes. I’d really have to calm it down near you. It could be a good thing for me though πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend! Beautifully Candid

    Our laundry fairy (me) has only been coming every other week and either she’s going to need to invest in bigger mailboxes for her deliveries or she’s going to have to start coming once a week again. Although, I take it as a personal challenge to stack the hamper as high as possible without anything falling off, then it’s a challenge for the laundry fairy to relocate said overflowing hamper without anything falling off the tower.

    Hahaha yes to the voice of reason & calories! Great job on getting rid of so many pieces!

    I want to come visit!!!! I should probably wait until baby girl arrives though πŸ˜‰

    Yay for the purge and a lil extra cash! Have a ball this weekend with your friends. Just love the pictures of Zoe in her big girl chair! Take pictures of all your delicious food, I always love seeing them, ha ha

    I hope the consignment sale is a success for you! We have lived in a couple of small towns and those quiet places can be really nice. Now I want Chick-Fil-A…

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family April 21, 2017 at 6:58 pm

    HA! That calorie refund one… hilarious! Also, look at ZOE! She’s SO big!!

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth April 21, 2017 at 9:21 pm

    That last meme……I’m so there with you! I feel that way sometimes when I’m driving over the bridge and I see the sun setting over the water…..such natural beauty. She is getting so big I can’t stand it. Freeze time please!

    I keep going back and forth whether I want an apple watch or not. The iPhone already tracks your steps and I’m not a fitness fanatic but I do see why some people like it. Sweet cheeks looks so cute as usual and I agree about the birds at 5am. Thankfully our house is pretty sound proof! Happy weekend sweet friend!

    A calorie refund, lol. Yes please! I love a peaceful view like that, ahh. Zoe is getting so big, omg! You can see her personality shining through in her pictures. I used to buy those Jimmy Dean Breakfast Bowls, but they really cut back on the proportions while still charging the same amount if not more, so I cut them from my grocery list. That recipe looks good! Lately I’ve been doing egg whites with peppers for breakfast and salads for lunch! I think it’s finally starting to pay off. I can see myself losing weight, especially in my face from last fall to spring.

    whew what a week! blogging has totally taken a backseat as I prep for my weekend deployment on sunday 12am. doesn’t that just suck when you even read it? i have to be working sunday 5-9am. wtf.

    anyway, Z is so cute i can hardly handle it. once she gets moving, she’ll be impossible to stop! in some ways, i miss the days when i would put kayla down and when i turned around, she wouldn’t disappear LOL.
