Friday Favorites

It’s Friday, and I am stoked! I have a million things I want to get done this weekend, and I am going to pump myself full of caffeine so I can do them all.

Last night, Zoe had her Christmas program at school. It was the sweetest thing I ever did see. Zoe said “hi mommy!!!” and waved at me from stage…which was the best thing ever. I shared a little snippet from one of their songs on stories, should still be there if you want to see it!

Today is Grinch Day at school, which is super fun. Zoe loves getting dressed for the different themed days and this might be one of her favorites, besides Frozen Day!

Tomorrow I hope to unpack boxes until I can get my car in the garage! And then get the house ready for Zoe’s party!!!! Sunday we have the birthday party, and Zoe is beyond excited about it! She only brings it up every. single. day. I don’t really know what she will talk about after it is over. I suppose how epic she thought it was. She has really raised the expectations bar high on this one.

Favorite Moments: Zoe hasn’t been real big on saying “I love you.” I think she has said it to me twice before this week. But this week, she has said it a few times. It really gives me all the feels.

I was surprised to open my email and see a House Warming present from Lindsay. Thanks sweet friend!!!! Honestly, there are some days I don’t know what I would do without her, even though we have never met in person.

Favorite Things: I repurchased the moisturizer my dermatologist recommended. I have really noticed a difference in my skin since switching my morning and evening moisturizer back in May. I really love that this doesn’t come with a ridiculous price tag too! I mean, its more than drugstore, but not give a kidney for it level. Plus, dermstore still has it on sale, so it is a great time to scoop it up! (They also do free shipping!)

I got this Clancy Chocolate Drizzled Kettle Corn from Aldi for $1.99 last weekend. It is a delight!!!! If you aren’t shopping at Aldi, I don’t know why you are wasting your money elsewhere! I am hoping to get a post up soon on how I have cut our grocery bill down by $20-50 per week.

    That sweet potato looks delicious. I may have to whip those up some time!! I love that second picture of Z – she looks so excited. And LOL to the dinosaur fax – I actually did LOL. I hope everything with the party goes well – I’m so sad we can’t make it – Sheffield will have some making up to do!

    Oh my goodness, that little hi, mommy on stage would have melted me. She looks so cute! I picked up that popcorn from Aldi, too. And their Christmas fruit snacks and lunch box packs of their cinnamon graham crackers for the boys. I hope you get done everything you want to this weekend! Have a great one!

    The male Alexa funny is too funny and probably so true. I loved seeing the pictures from Zoe’s performance. How fun! I hope you get some boxes unpacked this weekend. Have a wonderful weekend!

    I preach about Aldi to everyone I know. We save so much money and their products and customer service are both outstanding.
    Grinch Day!! How cute!

    Love the fun pics of her and loved the video you shared! Hope she has the best party and then you get to relax. Beyond thankful for you, friend! Don’t know what I’d do without you!

    I HATE when I need to figure out how to fax something…when I worked at a school, I just asked the secretary to show me how and did it there. Now I just hope I can scan and email something instead.

    I went through a whole conversation with the dermatologist about moisturizer this week. I just need to spot-treat dryness, but I’m going to check that one out!

    Happy birthday party to Zoe!

    Aw, Grinch Day!! How fun. I can’t wait to hear about Zoe’s party. I hope she had a blast, though I’m sure she did! I really need to get to Aldi, especially now that I’m gluten-free. I hear they have some awesome options there.
