Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! I am going to be honest with you, this was a tough week. I don’t know what it was with the moon cycle, the way the wind blew, something in the water….but parenting was an uphill battle this week. I am never anything but honest here, so I wanted to share that. It isn’t always rainbows and butterflies…though sometimes it is literally. Girl mom life.

I went and picked up BBQ Stop for us yesterday for lunch. That was a nice break from soups and salads. My stuffed potato was bigger than my head. Challenge accepted.

Do you guys have any plans this weekend? I need to track down a turkey. I was going to order one from HoneyBaked, but its too late to have one shipped and thawed in time. I called our local store to ask about curbside pickup, and the guy was rude AF to me so I was like you know what…I don’t need this. I am going to try to make one on my own. The thought is terrifying. I feel like I have some really great dinner recipes, and I can bake some really good cookies. But I have never made a large bird before. Or a huge ham. I should have sorted this out before this week, but I guess I was in denial.

Favorite Song: I haven’t shared a song in a really long time. I used to every Friday. Truth is, I don’t really listen to much new music. But Hi-Rez is one of my favorites and he released a new song this month that is so awesome and very relevant. You have to go about 1:20 in to get to the actual song. The idea of the video is really cool.

Favorite Purchase: It’s 2020 and I am ordering family Christmas pajamas and mommy and me pajamas. These were delivered yesterday and I LOVE them. I cant wait for the family ones to come in too!

Also, because I am old AF and am having all kinds of foot problems with my right foot…I ordered a pair of orthotic slippers. A year and a half ago I was diagnosed with acute plantar fasciitis and pes deformities (high arches). I bought a pair of slippers a few months ago that I absolutely love. And they really help with plantar fasciitis because they have memory foam in them. They don’t exactly do anything to support my arches though. The pain has been so awful lately, that its shooting up my entire leg. I have had these slippers for a week. They aren’t near as cozy as my first pair, they are heavier and clunky, but that is because they have support for both my heel and arch. They are still cute, not that it matters. They have a hard rubber sole that you can wear outside to walk the dog or whatever too. I am alternating between the two pairs I have. Barefoot is no longer an option for me.

Favorite Recipe: I made thai chicken soup the other day, it was so yummy and delicious. It was the perfect comfort I needed. This doesn’t take a million ingredients, and you literally throw it in the crockpot and forget about it. Until about 3 hours in, when you kitchen starts to smell like the best thai restaurant ever.

This easy crock pot recipe is easily adaptable when it comes to the veggies. Sub in or add carrots, potatoes or leeks. Or for a purely veg version change up the chicken broth for vegetable broth and leave out the chicken | @foodiecrush foodiecrush.com

Favorite Workout: I did this POP HITT workout on Wednesday and it wore me out! No jumping does not mean easy. Not even a little.

Favorite Reminder:

No matter how big your house is, how recent your car is, or how big your bank account is.  Our graves will always be the same size.  Stay humble.

    Funny, I just ordered another pair of slippers this week, too. We’ll see how they go! I’m tired of my foot hurting. I have faith in you and your turkey! Hope you can get some rest this weekend.

    I really LOL’d at that last one. And also the baby shark one. It makes total sense. I love those jammies – I don’t think I could EVER talk B into family christmas pajamas. He’s just too cool for school. I’m so glad you introduced us to Hi-Rez! LOVE! I, too, have faith in your bird cooking skills. Please send me photos!

    I’m sorry that guy was a jerk to you about the Turkey but I have no doubt you will make something amazing! I need those matching PJ’s – when else if not when they are young can we match with them! I’m sorry it was a tough week – today is a new day and hopefully it’s all better from here on out! xo, Biana

    Making a turkey is easy AF. I was super intimidated by it the first time I did it but you will do great. They have them at Aldi if you’re going there. Hit me up if you need turkey cooking tips, I am happy to help. DM on insta or do you have my phone number after all these years to text? LOLOL

    Idk how many people you are feeding, but i’ve got a GREAT turkey breast recipe, and it’s super simple Message me if you want

    The Mommy & me PJ”S!!!! So cute! you two are going to look adorable together!
    I have no doubts you could do a big bird or ham if you wanted… but why bother? Order that honey baked & forget about it 🙂 We’re doing a roasted cauliflower head with all the sides. The sides are all that matters anyways.
    That meme about the grave being teh same size… amennnnn!!!!!!

    Good luck with the Turkey, and let me know if you need help or need to vent about that or girl moming! My sister says the same about her three girls. I love the matching PJ’s! You have me craving a potato now!

    LOVE the jammies! I’m so sorry it was a bad week! I hope this weekend has been much better! xo

    I really have to get myself a slow cooker, that Thai soup recipe looks so good!

  • Reply Kristin November 23, 2020 at 6:39 am

    Yeah it was an awful week. My kid is up at 4:30am every day 🙁 It’s not the best way to start your day, ya know?
    The thai chicken soup looks amazing.
    I bought just a turkey breast yesterday and stuck it in the fridge. It’s really like making a mini turkey. Scott makes the turkey every year, but there’s no way we need a regular sized turkey.

    I saw that soup on your IG page and I wanted to make it. Yum. We are having ham on Thanksgiving now. I can’t wait. I love your matching mommy and me pjs!!!

  • Reply ShootingStarsMag November 23, 2020 at 1:23 pm

    That’s awesome you have two slippers that really help your feet now. I almost always wear my slippers these days. Those mommy and me pjs are the CUTEST! omg, I love it.

    Sorry about the rude guy about the turkey. Some people, I swear!!! I hope you have a great Thanksgiving meal, no matter what you make!
