Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!!! Each and every week that passes seems to leave me astounded that time is going by both so quickly and slowly at the same time. We have pretty much spent as much of 2020 at home in quarantine as we did out in the world before this happened. I had to cancel Zoe’s summer dance session this week, so that was hard. I know she is just ready to see her friends. We celebrated one of her friends birthday’s this week sending presents and having a Facetime. That perked her up until it was time to get off the phone. Then she was sad and said that she just misses everyone. Me too, girl.

Favorite Video/Song: I feel so seen right now. Mom or not, watch it. This is hilarious, and incredibly accurate.

Favorite Purchase: I think I have shared before, but just in case….the Aveeno Foot Mask is amazing!!!!This is my third or forth one, and every time I do it I wonder why I don’t do this at least weekly. My feet have never felt softer or more amazing than after I use this. You only have to do it for 10 minutes, I usually leave it on for 20 because why not. I just sit at my desk and work. I think for the price, you can’t beat it.

Favorite Recipe: We have been trying out some new recipes this week. Chris really liked this keto friendly chicken parmesan. Chicken parm isn’t my favorite meal ever, but I have to admit….it was pretty good! I definitely had a clean plate, and usually I only take a couple bites when I have made other recipes in the past. It was quite easy to put together, but it did dirty a lot of dishes. I did broil it at the end for 3 minutes to get that crispy cheese look and taste.

Favorite Workout: I wanted to cry about 5 minutes into this one. Nothing has ever burned my thighs as much as this workout right here. The moves are so simple, yet OMG!!!! I hated every second of this one, and yet, I plan to put it in regular rotation.

Favorite Funnies:

I found my sleep number! #sleepnumber #wine #sleepless #amwriting #romance #book

    That chicken looks so good and I added that foot mask to my Target cart after you mentioned it in your insta post. Off to watch that video now!

    I did 5 minutes of the workout yesterday because Jason needed in the office, but honestly not sure I could do much more otherwise. It’s so tough! That chicken sounds amazing!

    Time is such a weird thing when that happens. It’s crazy to think we’ve been home more than being out. I need to try out that foot mask! My feet take a beating in the summer because I usually have my shoes off. I hope you have a nice weekend!!!

    I love a good thigh workout.

    I do like chicken parm. I make eggplant parm a lot but chicken is what I remember getting at the hospital after Wells was born. I didn’t eat much for 3 days because I was so stressed out and anxious after he was born because they wouldn’t let us leave the hospital. But the food staff was so nice to me. They said they had this on the menu and, since we were going home that day, they offered to put it in a to-go box and we ate it at home lol. << that's my chicken parm story

    I love chicken parm, but maybe should try yours to make it healthier. Love that “you’re a good moooom,” lol. Been on repeat over here! I’ve dated more than a few that I’d put through the meat grinder! Wishing we could see you guys for the long weekend, but I hope you have a good one!

    I totally agree with time going both fast and slow. It’s a really weird time. I’m so lucky that M is so young and doesn’t really know any better. I feel like this would be so hard with older kids.
    And omg that Tiger King meme is hilarious!

    Thanks for the foot mask recommendation! I have been doing pilates with Blogilates YouTube videos. Also way harder than it looks!

    Okay, the Panda and the Six Foot Pole memes are great. Ah, I love it. Those foot masks sound lovely. I might need to get one for all this upcoming flip flop and sandal weather. Aw, poor Zoe. I’m sorry her summer dance was cancelled. It’s gotta be rough for young ones!
