Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! Another week spent at home. Did anyone else have a really hard time keeping up with what day it was this week??? With the holiday Monday, it has really thrown me for a loop. We had a lot of rain this week, so we have been cooped up inside a little more than we have this entire time we have been home. Zoe has asked pretty much every day when she can go on her slip and slide again. This weekend is looking more promising, at least.

How many of you plan to keep your summer travel plans with everything going on? Just curious. We always go to the beach in July, and I figured this year we probably wouldn’t….but it is still up in the air. It is hard to know the right thing to do.

Favorite Recipe: I made this spicy thai chicken recipe with asian slaw the other day, and it was so delicious! Low carb friendly, and pretty quick to come together.

Favorite Purchase: I ordered a bunch of popsicle molds for Zoe to create some fun cold treats for the summer. This kid lives for a popsicle, so she is really excited about them. We tried out the unicorn ones first with this funfetti pudding pop recipe. Super simple, and she loved it. She is really excited about the ring pop style that we plan to try out this weekend with a fruit recipe. I think these are going to work great for her because they are smaller. She couldn’t finish this entire unicorn pop.

I love having regular molds (I am going to make a coffee popsicle for Chris and I to try out!) but also fun shapes! These monster ones are so cute and on my list!

I also scooped up this Hempz Pineapple & Honey Melon lotion on my last Ulta order. It smells absolutely incredible!!!! It is the perfect amount of moisture without feeling too heavy or greasy for summer. I am in love. And so is Zoe, she keeps stealing it.

Favorite Workout: This cardio workout had me sweating. It was all standing, I hate having to drop down to the floor for cardio. I added on a 10 minute arm workout after and it was perfect.

Favorite Funnies:

You can't just start folding towels all willy-nilly like some sort of linen rebel.
The Struggle.
Kindergarten and Mooneyisms: It Also Fits a Pre-Kindergartener
Like seriously, you have another parent too!! 🙄🤷🏻‍♀️😭

    I may buy those pop molds for my niece! I think she’d love them. We are (hopefully) still planning to go on our trip if things with my grandma are okay. It’s a private house on a private beach so we feel okay about it (we also drive). We weren’t planning on going but still playing it by ear! I was confused all week as to what day it was…

    Those pops are so cute. I’m glad you guys had such a fun time with them. I saw that witch meme, and it made me LOL. I need to try that sometime soon. We’re still doing a mini-trip down to my dad’s for the Fourth, but it’s his house, and he’s got a pool, so I doubt we’ll be hitting the beach much.

    I loved seeing those pops on your Instagram, they are so stinking cute! Hopefully, you and Zoe will have lots of fun projects this summer! That spicy chicken looks delicious and I love that Hempz pineapple lotion! Have a great weekend!

    I’m at my wits’ end with my dry hands. All lotions hurt- even the ultra moisturizing ones. I think I’m going to have to see a dermatologist. UGH.
    The chicken sounds delicious and those popsicles are SO cute!!
    We didn’t have summer plans yet before all this started, although we talked about getting a beach house with my parents and in-laws. We scrapped that just because money has been tight due to almost all of us owning businesses. Ha. If I had plans to rent a beach house, though, I’d probably still keep them.
    I’m still hoping for a trip to TX for a wedding in Sept. and a birthday trip in Oct. for me! Fingers crossed!

    I really want to try that chicken recipe, but I need my husband to make it. Ha. Those are the cutest funfetti pops. I need to do those with my girls this Summer. Have a great weekend!

    Those pops look yummy! I say you guys should still try to get to the beach this summer for your annual trip. We are heading out that way at the end of June for a few nights, and feel safer since it’ll be by car instead of by plane. A lot of resorts have seriously upped their cleaning standards, and have social distancing rules for the beach and the pool areas. Call the property you stay at, and ask them what they’re doing to keep guests safe during this time 😉

    I hear Hempz is really good, and I LOVE pineapple so I might need to look into this. Those unicorn molds are adorable – my youngest niece would LOVE those. She’s definitely a unicorn girl at the moment. I didn’t have any summer travel plans actually worked out, which I guess is good or they’d probably be cancelled now. I’m not doing too much this summer, but getting away just sounds so great, doesn’t it??
