Friday Favorites-5.31.24

It’s FRIDAY! Hope you’ve had a great week and are enjoying summer wherever you are as well! I can already tell you this is going to be the summer I drive more than I’ve ever driven, cook more than ever {these boys are growing}, wash a load of beach towels on the daily, and order DoorDash more than ever {because still SUMMER-ha!}. I’m embracing it all though because it’s also my last summer without a kid that drives so give me that time in the car with them!! I read someone’s sappy message {that I’d never thought about prior} about their kid driving and it was about how much time they don’t get with them anymore. Many of my time with my older three revolves around me driving them-to practice, to school, to appointments, etc. It hit my mama heart in all the right places and well, I’m going to enjoy my last summer of shuffling them all around.

As always, I’m here with my girl, Andrea, to share some of my FAVORITES from the week!

First up is it’s been CHEER CAMP week for both of my girls. {Which is a FAVORITE}…

I dropped Ebby Lee off on Wednesday with friends and these girls were READY for a great week!

And Britt’s been attending a local cheer camp every afternoon this week which is also a FAVORITE! She told me it was crazy sock/crazy hair day yesterday. I didn’t see anyone else looking like this when I picked her up so I had some questions….haha!

I need you to go grab your car keys and drive immediately to your grocery store! These Jalapeno Popper Pop Corners are going to be my FAVORITE summer snack! I found these at Target but am now on the lookout at the other grocery stores that are closer. I dipped these in the Good Culture cottage cheese I shared earlier this month…absolutely DELISH!!

Summer makes me think of ice cream, popsicles, and cold treats so these Enlightened ice cream bars were the perfect after dinner treat this week…a new FAVORITE!

This outfit is a new summer FAVORITE! First up, I LOVE the color and secondly it’s a way for me to look put together but not mind one bit if I walk the dog later in the day and get sweaty. I’m not a fan of putting on “real clothes” and then getting sweaty {which can easily happen in the Texas summers}. It feels so much lighter and airier than denim shorts with a top.

I used the built-in bra but if I was doing legit cardio would need to wear a sports bra underneath. I’m in the medium.

*************************

I’ve been a Coffee Mate Hazelnut Creamer girls for YEARS! I knew it wasn’t the best habit but it was almost one I wasn’t willing to part with. I’d tried several times to stop and nothing measured up. So, I went completely cold turkey with creamer for about two weeks. I got up and had black coffee. It was bearable but I didn’t wake up excited to have that first cup of coffee. I transitioned to Nut Pod Creamer after drinking it with nothing and I think that was the magic timing. I’ve tried a variety of Nut Pod Creamers and the Cookie Butter flavor is my FAVORITE! Once again, I’m pumped about that first cup of coffee AND who am I kidding-the second or third cup as well. 😉

*************************

I have some fun on my weekend horizon…a visit with a friend, a cheer camp performance, a baseball tournament, and more! Happy Weekend, Friends!

    It’s odd to think that time in the car is quality time with your kids, but if you think about it, it makes sense.

    Oh yes, it is so different once they start driving themselves everywhere! I love the Enlightened bars but haven’t seen that flavor yet; my favorite is the light mint chip.

      I wish I liked Mint Chocolate Chip, Joanne! It always tastes like I’m at the dentist to me. hahaha!
