Friday Favorites

I am hoping that March takes it’s business with her when she leaves. I feel like I am a sinking ship lately. The house is a mess, I am literally behind on all the things, and every time I cross one thing off at work, two more drop in it’s place. Also, allergies. If you dont know what the entire state looks like covered in pollen, take a trip down south in the spring. I have been living down here for 20 years now, and I am still shocked every spring when everything has a yellow/green coating of nasty on it for two months straight. There isn’t enough Clariton or nasal spray in the world to make you feel better. And that sentence made me realize something. It really has been 20 years since we moved to the south. Do you know how old that sounds that I can say, oh it’s been 20 years since….and I am not talking about being in elementary school?! LOL.

Anyways, you guys it is Easter weekend! The schools here have been on spring break this week. I can FINALLY pull out my sandals and flip flops and start wearing them on Sunday. I try to wait until Easter to deem them appropriate for work. Zoe’s daycare is closed today and my office closes at 2pm, so I am going to work from home this morning. My sister is supposed to come over for a bit today, and I am supposed to see my mom tomorrow for a little while. Haven’t seen her since Christmas! We spend Easter with Chris’s family, so we will be over there Sunday. What do you have planned?

Favorite Moments: I ate at Farm Bowl TWICE this week. Those acai bowls are addicting and they make it so easy to just drop in and take one to go if you have errands to run.

Zoe’s daycare was closed yesterday too, so I worked from home and we had some craft time before her nap. She is so much fun at this age!!! We did some painting, and colored in a book. She has this fun game where I lay on the couch and she “sneaks up” behind me and I look all surprised that she is there. She laughs and laughs so hard and loud that she snorts and then I laugh too. She can play that game for like 10 minutes straight. She has started giving kisses and they are the sweetest little kisses ever. And she learned the word “uh oh” and basically repeated in the car the entire way home the other night. (Our drive is about 35 minutes from daycare to the house in the evenings, mind you.) It was the cutest thing and I would repeat her and we would both laugh.

She received her first Scholastic books on Monday!!! They had a book fair at her school a few weeks ago and I was so darn excited about it! Was it not your favorite day of the school year??? I think my favorite book from the stack is Shoe-La-La. It is so cute! I put them all aside to put in her Easter basket, so I cant wait til we start reading these. But of course, I read them all before I put them up because book nerd over here!

Favorite Recipe: This Thai rice bowl sounds fabulous.

Thai Cashew Coconut Rice with Ginger Peanut Dressing. This rice salad is seriously addictive and always a huge hit at potlucks!

Favorite Purchase: Target has their t’s on sale for $5. Normally I would think, there is a reason they are $5. But no, seriously. I ordered a red and a white pocket v-neck with my Target card and it was less than $10 and they are amazing!!! It has been a long time since I have worn a plain tshirt. Normally they fit like garbage and I don’t feel comfortable. There is something about the material and the cut of these that rivals some of the $30 and $40 ones you can find at Nordstrom. Thanks Lindsay for talking me in to them!

    I bought three of those tees while I was at Target, and I’m wearing one today. Obsessed. They are so comfy! I’m glad you got brave with the paints – looks like y’all had so much fun! I hope you guys have a great Easter!

    So funny that we ordered the same color tshirts. We are the same person! I love mine, too. And I mean if you don’t love them, they were $5! I cannot take these cute pics of Zoe! She is full of personality. I’m off work today and I feel the same about March. It’s been a hell of a month! It’s STILL cold here somehow and I planned to wear sandals Sunday but it’s going to be 40. So. The one good thing is that my allergies haven’t been horrible yet! Ha! Have a great weekend!

    I love her paintings! I’m glad that you’ve had a good time hanging out with Zoe! 🙂 We are headed to Kc’s extended family and then with my family on Easter. Just two meals I think (no easter-y activities, except for the kids. hehe). It should be nice to see people though! That thai rice bowl does look good.. yummm! Have a great weekend and good luck with the allergies! I feel ya! XO -Alexandra

    V-neck tanks are my FAVORITE – they are seriously the most comfortable, and this one looks like it falls so perfectly. Also, that rice bowl looks ah-mazing!! Have a great weekend!

    Ah I was at Target yesterday and did not pick up a tee, I meant to! Those acai bowls look amazing! Ah scholastic days were the best! Ugh to the pollen, my washer fluid is low in my car because the windshield is constantly covered! Have a fantastic weekend!

    Watch Zoe just grow into the best little artist!
    isnt it funny what makes them just laugh so hard – the simplest things. To be that innocent again
    Happy Easter to you & your family!

    Loving those funnies. I love those Target tees. Plus for $5. Killer. I love Zoe’s little art pieces. I feel like this month has been hard as well. YOu are not alone in that. Happy Easter!

    apparently, they’ve cut a lot of great classes that prep kids in high school like family studies, world issues etc. i’ve also heard they’ve massively cut funding to a lot of great art and music programs 🙁 so sad.

    Happy Easter! Those $5 Target tops look so comfortable…might as well get them in all the colors! The Thai rice bowl is calling my name. I love Thai food. Hope you had a great weekend! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

    HAH! “working with assholes.” That would be a nice class to prepare for the real world.
    Aw, Zoe is too cute. I love doing crafts with my nieces and nephew. How fun!
    I hope you had a great Easter!!

    Completely agree with the resting bitch face meme and the snacks on snacks one. Lol!
    I love that Zoe plays little games with you! Hope you guys had a fun weekend and happy Easter!!

    Oh my gosh, I would die with all that pollen everywhere! Eeek! Nothing has had a chance to do anything up here in Wisconsin – we supposed to get almost a foot of snow tomorrow. *sigh*

    I’ve never had a rice bowl but I should try sometime, they do look delish.

  • Reply Brittany Pines April 3, 2018 at 4:39 pm

    Same, re: March. During my workout yesterday there was literally a yellow cloud of pollen while we were running *insert facepalm here*

    The last pic is my work life lately 100%. I have lost all ability to pretend to care.
