Friday Favorites

You guys, I am SO SICK of tornado season already!!! It has barely even started, and the last three weeks straight we have been under a tornado watch/warning at some point in the week. Last night I had so much anxiety driving home from work/daycare. I was racing with the storm. So much wind and lightening, but I managed to stay about 5 minutes ahead of it. I got home and stepped out of my car and didn’t like the way the atmosphere felt. It was eerily silent and the wind wasn’t right. I didn’t even make it through my living room before my phone and weather radio started freaking out telling me there was a tornado in my area. I turned around and looked out our front window and OMG!!!! It was right fucking there. Well I mean, like 5 miles in the distance. BUT STILL!!!!

Captioned: Things you don’t wanna fucking see when you are in a car on a rural road.

I am so glad it was going away from my house, but it was heading right towards my sisters house. It went straight up the road that we take to get to each other. Luckily, it didn’t actually hit near her house either…but it was at the tail end of rush hour and there were a LOT of trees down on Hwy 431. Lots of people on the road when it happened.

So over this weather!!!!!!!

But I am done talking about that, because I can’t get that image out of my head and cant think about it anymore. Let’s talk about lighter things, like my favorites for the week! Perhaps my first one is actually showing up to blog.

And getting to see Laura on Wednesday for lunch!!! We grabbed salads at Edgar’s Bakery, and they were delicious! We have plans to go shopping together tomorrow too, and take the kids for some delicious lunch. I cant wait!

Favorite Purchase: My fun, pink glasses I ordered from Amazon over the summer broke last week. I have been lost without them and decided to order a different pair. These came in this week, and they look and feel very designer, but at a much better price. They have a really nice case they came in too!

Favorite Recipe: I make these sriracha meatballs at least two or three times a month. They are so good!!!!!

Honey Sriracha Glazed Meatballs

Favorite Funnies:

Stealing this from Kathy, literally me every single morning. Except at 6:30 am instead. It is even better, because Zoe is Moana obsessed.

    Oh my gosh, that is so terrifying! I’m so glad you’re okay. I’m going to check out that meatball recipe, I had been prepping the same 2 things for lunches for a few weeks in a row and I’m finally getting sick of them and need some new ideas!

    We had a tornado watch here yesterday. WTF no, this is Chicago, we’re too close to the lake for that BS. It is the season though. We had them in Iowa a lot. I remember a bad one my junior year in April, totally ripped down the Alpha Chi house and a couple other rooftops. I do not miss that.

    OH MY GOSH… that’s terrifying… & OK, secretly, a little cool. I always say I’d be a storm chaser if I could. Tornados fascinate me… I just dont want them hurting anything or anyone :/ too much to ask?

    Tornadoes seem super freaking terrifying. We don’t get any around here but yikes. We get blizzards instead. I hope you’re staying safe. <3

    Ugh, those storms! So glad you and your sis are ok! I love that baby shark meme – because it’s so true -you and me so gangsta. Can’t wait for our date tomorrow!

  • Reply Sierra March 15, 2019 at 5:20 pm

    Wow that is so crazy! I would either be freaking out or really amazed and want to stare at it. But thinking realistically I probably really freaked out.

  • Reply Emelia A Lawrence March 16, 2019 at 10:41 am

    HOLY COW, that is way too close for sure. Damn, glad you’re safe!!!!!! I need some new sunnies, ordered a pair and didn’t love them so back on the hunt I go! Gotta love Amazon for that!

    I feel your pain lady! We don’t get too many tornado warnings but the hurricane warnings are just as scary especially having to drive through the feeder bands. I hope you are safe and sound…and had a great weekend!

    Yes to ALL the toddler memes ;-P

    The tornadoes seem really scary. We don’t get them around here, but I always hear about them. Glad you guys are safe. I really want to try those siracha meatballs.

    Omg those pictures are basically the stuff of NIGHTMARES!

    Ugh, tornadoes freak me out so much. I’m lucky that we don’t get them too often but we did have a warning the other week. I’m glad you and your sister are both okay!! Love all your funnies – the trailer for a person one is sooo accurate.
