Friday Things

Happy Friday!!! This week has been a bit of a blur for me and I am not quite sure why. I think the weather on Wednesday sort of mixed up my routine a little bit. Either way, I am glad it is Friday! It is nice on the weekends to only worry about Zoe, and not having to get shit done for work too. You know what I mean?

I haven’t talked about it much (well not at all on the blog), but my mom had to have surgery on her shoulder yesterday. The surgeon said that her shoulder was a mess and there was bone shaving going on, repairing of a rotator cuff and a screw involved. So if you could all say a little prayer, send good vibes or whatever you are into…that would be great. Zoe and I are going to go pick up my sister when she gets off work and go visit her this afternoon.

Favorite Recipe: This week, we pulled out an oldie but goodie. This Cajun Chicken Pasta recipe is my favorite. It is a meal splurge as far as calories and shit go…but totally worth it every now and then. Add in some fresh baked bread, and it is pure perfection.

Favorite Lust: The other week I was in JCPenney to grab some face wash at Sephora. I happened to walk by the ANNA stuff they had out front and saw the most beautiful bomber jackets! They had a pink one and an olive one and I want them so bad!!!! They are on sale right now and I haven’t stopped thinking about them. In person they are even cuter. The material was really nice.

Speaking of sales. Target has BOGO 50% off on their shoes right now and I still have my eyes on these.

Favorite Pins: I am on clean and organize all the things mode. I have pantry envy with this…

    Love those bomber jackets! There’s a Penney’s right beside my office but I’m never in there… I clearly need to make a trip! Praying for your mom! Any surgery is scary. I have my eyes on those Target shoes, too, though I bought a similar pair last year. Hard to decide. 🙂 have a great weekend!

    I hope that your mom makes a quick and speedy recovery! Surgery is never fun, no matter what it’s for! And I always have some serious pantry and closet envy too, but I think that I’ve determined to not have something that pretty because I’m so messy and cluttery! Oh well, I can dream, right? I hope that you have a fantastic weekend!

    I’m so sorry to hear about your mom’s shoulder- I’ll definitely keep her in my prayers and hope she has an easy and speedy recovery. That bomber jacket is so pretty for spring– my Target shopping cart is getting out of hand…

    Glad to see you guys made it out of the storm okay. Does anyone’s closet and/or pantry ever actually look like that? Like… In real life? I need to know these things…

    Hope you guys have a great weekend!

      je pense surtout que Nole a mis 6 mois à s’habituer à sa nouvelle raquette.Il est donc très bien placé pour prendre la place de numéro un aprèès l&eep17;auso28n.All#z, je prends le pari que Nole sera numéro un au plus en mars 2010.

    Sending good vibes to your mama!

    Oh my gosh, that Cajun pasta looks SO GOOD! I pulled up the recipe and thought “omg, so many ingredients!” I am not a cook at all lol. Is it hard to make?

    Yep, I want that pantry!

  • Reply Kelsey @ So Much Life April 7, 2017 at 5:32 pm

    Oh my goodness. Both of those closet/pantry photos are making me SO jealous!! My husband and I just got a bunch of those OXO containers for our wedding, but we don’t have a pantry – just cabinets. I’d love to be able to have things all laid out like that, but you’ve gotta have a pantry first! Haha.


    Happy weekend, Nadine!

    I prayed for your Mom, I hope she will be okay! That pasta looks very good.

    I’m sorry to hear about your mom. I’ll be saying a prayer for her. I love that jacket! Haha I deleted my target email today so I wouldn’t be tempted. I hope you have a great weekend!

    Sorry to hear about your mom. Hope she heals up quickly and isn’t in too much pain. I’m sure she’ll really enjoy your company and all the Zoe smiles to brighten the mood.

    I’m SO into bomber jackets right now – I have 3 but they’re all printed and a bit ‘loud’ (one’s floral, one leopard, and one has like this crazy dragon thing on the back) – I’m on the search for a plain solid one…need to check these out!

    Sending healing thoughts to your mom! My step-dad had that surgery before. I am in a spring cleaning/organizing mood too. Those are some great motivating pics! Wish I could just wake up and see my house ready to go like that! Haha.

    I love the tornado/Wizard of Oz meme. Cracked me right up.

    I hope that your mama’s surgery went well.
