Friday Favorites

Coming at you live from day 7 of not leaving the house. Lord help us! I am not sure about you, but it is a little hard to be excited about Friday when you know your weekend is more of the same. Being stuck at home with not much to do and no where to go! I desperately want to eat at a restaurant and walk around TJ Maxx! This is why I support brick and mortar stores more over shopping online. I crave just being out and about!

Favorite Moments: I have been working hard to come up with lesson plan ideas to do with Zoe each day. I try to do a morning and afternoon activity that centers around learning something, anything. And keeping her school schedule the best that I can. With the one exception of letting her sleep in every morning, because it is the only way I can get any actual work done! Follow me on Instagram if you want to see what we are doing. I am trying to share one of our activities each day to give others ideas. This is hard!!!

Don’t think this is all pinterest perfect over here though. Making a work call with a toddler constantly trying to interrupt, or explain to her why you need to be on your computer right this second is pretty much impossible. There have been several times this week when Zoe has said, “Mommy please don’t work anymore. Come play with me!!!” She really misses her school friends and talks about them often.

Favorite Recipe: We have made these buffalo tenders a lot lately. It is one of my favorite Keto friendly recipes and you don’t need a ton of ingredients on hand. Ready in 30 minutes.

Favorite Workout: I have always done at home workouts, so this is nothing new for me. My goal has been to get at least 30 minutes each day in with one of these first thing in the morning before I start work. Then I try to get another 20-30 minutes in throughout the day with walks around my neighborhood with Zoe, Just Dance, kid yoga video with her, running around outside, whatever.

I really enjoyed this one…

And this one….

Yesterday for our afternoon walk, we got down our street and then Zoe took off running. No joke, the kid ran full out speed for over a half a mile!!! I was so not expecting that! I didn’t have on a sports bra, and she was running way faster than I would have if I was the one keeping pace. I had a hard time keeping up with her! When we got back to the house she said, that was fun mommy lets do it again tomorrow. Ummm thanks for the warning I need to prepare myself!

Favorite Lusts: (affiliate links) I have a wish list going of a few items I would like to pick up for the spring/summer. I wanted to go try this dress on at Target, because the length can be really tricky on me. I tend to look frumpy in anything below the knee, but I love love love this style.

I have had my eye on the Tory Burch sandals for a few years now, and I am going to pick them up this year to replace a few pairs of shoes I need to retire due to the condition they are in. I really like the blush color, and they are 25% off at Nordstrom right now!!!

The Pink Tulip is a local boutique here in Birmingham, and they are one of many places that have had to shut their doors and go to online or curbside pickup. I am places like this will still be around when we emerge on the other side! I love this little black dress, its simple but has a few things that elevate it.

    I legit thought that Pink Tulip model was you for a hot minute!! I’m definitely adding those pop sugar workouts to my rotation. I love Anna and all of her friends!! LOL with the CVS receipt, and I really miss being able to go out and about.

    Love seeing all the fun stuff you do with Zoe! The model in the black dress looks like you – I seriously thought it was you for a second!

    Your memes are amazing. The hand washing one is so me. My hands have been SO dry and cracked since M was born (yay bottle washing) and this is making them so bad. I carry lotion around like people do chapstick. Lol
    Zoe running and you following (without a sports bra) has me laughing so hard!! Sorry, friend!!

    I’m sure the days are long & tough (we are officially working from home now, too) but Zoe just looks SO happy in those photos! I’m sure she’s loving the mommy time!

    The 2020 meme > 3 months later. It perfectly sums it up. This freaking year.
    I’m going to try those buffalo chicken tenders. I bought the hot sauce a few weeks ago with the intention of buffalo chicken meatballs and then was never in the mood for them.

    Same! Desperately craving a TJ Maxx day over here too. Awe, I’m sure it’s so hard to refuse a play date mid work call. These meme’s have me LOL-ing. Did you see the one that read something like, “If you see my kids locked outside it’s called a fire drill” Haha.

    I might have to hit up Walmart later for groceries/etc. and I’m both dreading it and just happy at the idea of getting out of the house, bahaha.

    Will have to follow you on Insta, looking for pre-K ideas over here too!

    Oh gosh, my hands are so dry from all the hand washing and hand sanitizer. I really need more lotion I think for after all the hand washing. haha

    I love that Pinterest is a thing, and you’re able to find ideas for teaching Zoe. If you need any help, let me know!! I’m happy to do some research and find some new things for Zoe to enjoy.

    Good for you for still exercising. I’ve never been great doing it from home, but I am trying to get out and walk some when the weather is nice. I know I need to find other ways to keep active though. It’s tough!! I miss my dance classes. haha

    Speaking of trying to do video calls with a toddler – I had a meeting yesterday for work and we we were all on video, and my supervisor’s three year old was talking up a storm and just all over the place. It was funny – we get it!
