Friday Things

Happy Friday, friends! I started this post last week for last Friday, but here we are a week later. Time is a funny thing. Things have just been so busy with work this week, and honestly, I have felt a little uninspired lately.

We finally made a decision about Zoe’s school, and pulled her for now. At the end of the day, I can’t send her knowing I didn’t have to. You know? We are going to see how the next few months go, and maybe enroll her in a 3K program later this year, or beginning of next. Which means I need all the home school activities and ideas, and probably more wine. A lot more wine.

I never did get the chance to recap my last two weekends like I had intended. Honestly, it was more of the same. Hanging out at the house, a car ride Saturday, pool time for Zoe, and lots of delicious food. We ordered from our favorite Mexican place two weekends ago, and burgers from Jim n Nick’s for my birthday weekend.

Jim n Nick’s cheese biscuits. When you know….you know.

Speaking of food!!!! I wanted to share two recipes with you that I made for my birthday weekend that were both amazing in their own ways. I stole both from Family Savvy, a local Alabama blogger. She shares some amazing recipes on her Instagram and blog, and she is just the cutest.

Between the three of us, we polished off this plate of strawberry brownies in less than 48 hours. SO GOOD!

One of my favorite places to grab lunch during the week is Tazikis. They have a Whipped Feta Dip on the menu that is incredible!!! They serve it with pita bread, and I think cucumbers taste really good with it as well.

This makes a huge bowl, and honestly, unless you are having company over…you might want to cut the recipe in half. I want to play with the recipe and see if I can reduce the amount of honey and still get the amazing taste/texture.

We have been enjoying some nice walks in the evenings, now that the sun goes down a little earlier and it isn’t as blazing hot. Zoe is always ready with her finest attire.

Favorite Purchase: Fall/winter is approaching fast. I love to be comfy in the cooler months. Add in staying at home, and well, can you have enough lounge wear??? I found the BEST comfy sweatshirts from Walmart. They are less than $12 and look a lot more high end, very much an Aerie vibe, for a quarter of the price. I purchased the Yellow Dust color in my normal size, and the fit is PERFECT. You could size up if you really want a over-sized fit, but my normal size provided an over-sized fit look without being frumpy.

I also really love the new pink henley top that Aerie came out with. It is $40 though, and I don’t really want to spend that much for something so casual, you know? I found this waffle peplum top in the same brand from Walmart for less than $15. I got the Tea Rose color, and it has a raw hem around the neck and the bottom. I saw a very similar shirt at a local boutique for almost $50. They are really stepping up their game lately.

Favorite Workout: I did 2 Heather Robertson workouts back to back this week, and I could hardly walk a few hours after finishing the second one. My inner thighs hurt so bad. So clearly, they were a winner! I did this one first…

Followed by this one the next day…

    Well you’ve sold me on the Walmart sweatshirts. I like my Aerie sweatshirts but I bet the quality isn’t much better (if at all) than Walmart, and a lot more expensive! I need to make that feta dip!

    Those strawberry brownies look AH-mazingggg. Holy cow.
    Speaking of, I started Chloe Ting workouts this week and I’m in love. Marking that inner thigh one down for up-next…
    And yeah, I’ve resigned myself to the fact that Wells won’t be going to any 2 year old preschool program this year bc it’s just not being offered at this point. It is what it is.

    Yay for birthday meals and nighttime walks now that it’s a little cooler. All that food looks amazing, and I need that whipped feta dip! Sorry that you struggled so much with Zoe’s school this fall, it is no joke. We haven’t sent Serena back yet either and truly have no idea when we will. I’m just so thankful she’s in pre-school and not regular school or I have no idea what we’d do. Happy Friday sweet friend, and revel in the fact that it is still indeed birthday week 😉

    I’m so glad you made a decision for Zoe’s school. I know that is hard to make the final call but I know you have to feel better knowing the decision is made.
    I’m getting excited for fall clothes! I mean, since I just stay home, I have gotten 2 new pairs of joggers – but still – fall clothes 🙂

    That sweatshirt from Walmart looks so cute and cozy. I definitely need all the comfortable clothes for the Fall. My oh so favorite time of the year.

    I think it’s a good thing you’re able to keep Zoe home from school this Fall. I know it’s still a tough decision, but I get your reasoning and I hope you find lots of fun home school options to help keep her learning. I’m obsessed with Pinterest and research, so if you need help, let me know!
