Friday Favorites

Hey there, Friday! It is about time! I am not going to lie, this week was rough. I couldn’t be happier that it is finally Friday!I usually share little snippets from the week on Fridays, but I am having to dig deep this time.  A co-worker that left last year has come back and we all went to lunch on Tuesday. It felt like nothing every changed. Zoe has finally started letting us watch/listen to something other than “pets”! It has mostly been Vamparina, which she calls “anana.” But I will take the win. She has also learned how to say “fruit,” which is her favorite part of dinner every night. She has been picking up a lot of words, it seems like each week she adds a few new ones! This is such a fun age.

Favorite Creamer: About 95% of the time, I have the naturals sweet cream creamer in my coffee. I had gotten away from a lot of the flavored ones. One of my favorite drinks to order from SB is the Coconutmilk Mocha Mochiatto though…so when I saw this creamer….I knew I had to try it! It is SO GOOD! Get you some.

Favorite Recipe: I could go for a comforting bowl of pasta right now. But you know, still want to keep it within my daily points. I saw this recipe on SkinnyDish and I cant wait to try it. Pasta and bacon in one dish??? Yes, please!

Pin2KShare372Tweet2K SharesLately, I’ve been all about ease and this One Pot Alfredo Pasta with Bacon and Peas is ALL about ease. It’s loaded with garlic, bacon, pasta, peas and finished off with a lazy creamy Alfredo that is just to die for. Lazy summer days are in full effect and I have pressed the easy ...

Also, how amazing does this WW Peanut Butter Pie look???? It uses whipped peanut butter to cut down on calories. Sign. Me. Up.

Favorite Purchase: Laura gifted me with an Athleta gift card for my birthday. I needed some retail therapy last Friday, and decided to stop in for a browse. I instantly fell in LOVE with this Coaster Luxe Sweatshirt. The color is GORGEOUS!!!! And the material. OMG! It is so so so buttery soft. This might be the coziest thing I have ever placed on my body. It fits true to size, and even has the little thumb holes on the sleeves for extra comfort. It is so flattering on, and you can basically expect to find me in this all fall/winter.

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

    I totally laughed at the seeing people through the window. I’ve had many days like that.

    I love thumb holes, that can be my entire basis for buying a shirt!

    I NEED that sweatshirt! I am all about comfort, and thumb holes. LOL. Have a great weekend and thinking about you today.

    Thumb holes are the best! I’m watching Secret Life of Pets today at school since we’re on an early release/pep rally schedule & I only see my kids for 20-30 today. It made me think of you lol. I had intended on watching Inside Out since I’ve still never seen it but apparently they took it off of Netflix. Glad she has found a new movie!

    I am a huge Athleta fan. The pieces can be pricey but they last and I literally wear two pairs of shorts from there constantly.

    It’s so fun when they start learning words!! I’m glad you put that gift card to good use – that top looks so comfy! And also, since that pie is WW friendly, I expect that at our next get together. Ok, buh bye (that was for Z girl!)

  • Reply Lauren September 14, 2018 at 1:50 pm

    Oooh that pie looks AMAZING! I just might need to make that this weekend!

  • Reply Biana September 14, 2018 at 1:53 pm

    There is nothing better than a great and cozy athleisure piece and I really love the color! I saw that Nemo last nerve meme and it was hilarious – I’m sure I will be at that point in the next few years! xo, Biana-BlovedBoston

  • Reply Michael September 14, 2018 at 3:16 pm

    Both of those recipes look great! I’m going to need to make the PB pie. That stuff is my FAVE!

  • Reply Audrey September 14, 2018 at 3:36 pm

    That last meme is me right now. 4 freakin’ 30 can’t come soon enough. HA.
    I love baby/toddler babble. So cute (and smart!) that Zoe is adding to her vocab so quickly!
    One of my bffs is an influencer for Athleta and she ALWAYS has the coolest workout clothes. I need to stock up on some stuff!

  • Reply Andrea Nine September 14, 2018 at 3:38 pm

    Not gonna lie, I’ve acted out of spite behind…shh don’t tell anyone, lol. Whipped PB..genius, I wanna eat the whole thing! That creamer sounds so delicious. It is so fun when they start learning more words. Make sure you always write in her baby book the funny stuff she says from now til snout 5. We roll on the floor when we reread some of what they boys said.

    So fun Zoe is learning to say new words every week. “Askhole” is so funny but true. I can think of some people who fit the description and it’s frustrating. a href=””>Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

    Well, at least Vamparina has different episodes! LOL It’s a cute show. Sorry last week was rough, but I hope you had a nice weekend. I’ve been sick so not a lot got done, but ah well, I just tried to rest a lot. I finally got to sleep quite a bit today too and that was lovely. 🙂

    Oh, I have been all about the Salted Caramel Creamer lately (because that’s what I get at Sbucks) but will definitely be on the lookout for that Coconut one!

    It’s so much fun with the kids start talking. I LOVE seeing Babycakes develop and getting to hear more of the way her mind works <3 =D
