Friday Favorites (on a Saturday, because I forgot)

Momfessionals

I'm posting my favorites from this week...they are random...some are people and some are just things that I use on a daily basis.  These are in no particular order.

Here we go!

One.


I adore this Dutch oven.  My mom bought me this the week after I had surgery, because she overheard me say how much I loved The Pioneer Woman's that I saw while watching her show.  I love to cook and though this thing is really heavy, I leave it out on my stovetop all the time.  I use it literally every single day whether I'm making a huge pot of chili (like I did on Thursday) or macaroni for our lunch.  I love it.  I love it even more because it's red.  And in case anyone is curious, this is the Martha Stewart brand, bought from Macy's.

Two.


I've mentioned before that I love Post-It Notes, but they're really practical for me.  I use them all the time with homeschooling, as page markers or little notes that I leave to the boys in their school books.  I also leave them all over the place for myself, as little reminders of what needs to be done, or an important email I need to reply to.  

Three.


Friends!  I've had some really great friend time this week, including time with this precious lady.  She and her boy came over for breakfast yesterday morning, and for a blessed two and a half hours, we laughed and got all nice and caught up with each other.  I love her so much and we are so much alike that it is almost freaky.  Seriously.  You would die if you knew all that we had in common.  This is my sweet friend Andrea that I met at Renewed Moms two years ago.  It feels like I've known her forever.

Four.  


Fruit filled Twizzlers.  I am addicted, as I mentioned earlier this week...and last night, thanks to a friend from high school that I went to dinner with, I now have another pack laying around! 

Five.


Not a day goes by that I don't thank the good Lord for our homeschool group, Renewed Moms.  Thursdays are my favorite day of the week and a total God send.  I love all these ladies and I love my small group!  I have the honor of being a small group leader here, and the time we spend praying and talking and sharing is precious to me.  Our prayers are anointed, and we are all striving for unity in our faith.  Denominations are not mentioned, we just all love Jesus and we love studying His word inductively.  

Six.


Mexican food.  I went to a yummy new to me restaurant last night called Las Delicias.  It was delicious, as the name states.  I loved the salsa and guacamole and my entree was amazing~fresh chicken flautas.  Pictured above are the tamales we enjoyed on our vacation, but they're Mexican too, so I thought I'd use that picture.  :)

I'm linking up with Momfessionals for this post.  Thanks for reading and love to all!

I totally agree, Kristen! I ate it all the time when I was pregnant with my middle son, and he loves it as much as me! Thanks for the comment love!

the weekend

This weekend went by so quickly!  I think every second of it was planned out, to some extent, and I only saw my family in shifts.  The only ...
