Friday Faves

It's Friday, and it's right before a long weekend for me-whoop whoop! It's also Friday the 13th! Crazy to think that this was the first full week, with kids, that I've had at work since before Winter Break...and the more impressive thing is that I survived!! :)
Let's talk about 5 of my favorites from this week!

{1}Favorite Find

When I was telling my friend that I couldn't get an appointment with my favorite massage therapist for a month (she's that good), she told me I needed to get a TheraCane. I asked "What the heck is that?" and she sent me the link. All of the 1,900 something reviews were pretty spectacular, so I ordered one for MG and I. It arrived this week and oh my word! It reaches knots and trigger points that I can't get myself and doesn't tire my hands trying to work them out. Miracle! I highly recommend this magic little stick. I've toyed with bringing it to work with me to use during the day, but I haven't gotten to that desperate/weird level....yet :)


{2} Favorite Blate
Ok, I only had one blate this week, but it was still a favorite! Christy and I got together again for happy hour last night and had a blast! It's been a while since we were able to get together but it was so fun catching up in person on all things real life, blog world, and gossip! Add in some sangria and you have the perfect combination :) Can't wait for our next one!!

{3} Favorite Quotes
Meghan pinned this the other day and it resonated big time with me. It was actually exactly what I needed to see/hear that day.

Plus, I enjoyed the conversation that took place after, too. It's always nice to connect with someone else who "gets you".

{4} Favorite Funnies
This video from Buzzfeed where kids try breakfasts from around the world, and their reactions. Let me just tell you that some of them are priceless (the little Asian boy is probably my favorite)
And if you really wanna get in the mood for Valentine's Day (I'm totally being sarcastic), check out the video of parents telling kids about the Birds and the Bees!

With the amazing Saved by the Bell skit last week, I think this super funny skit from The Tonight Show got lost by the wayside. You have to watch--it's classic kid stories based on what they thought Birdman was about...and I laughed out loud watching it:

{5} Favorite Plans
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day in case you missed the memo. We don't go all out for Valentine's Day--MG and I usually exchange a card and a small gift (I love a good card!). This year we're going up to Philly since it's a long weekend, so we'll get to spend time with our family up there including our nieces and nephew who I adore and haven't seen since Christmas. It'll be fun to spend a holiday centered around love with some of the cutest little lovebugs I know :) My SIL and I have plans to spend some quality time together (shopping, manis), so I'm pumped about that. And MG and I have a special date night planned for next week to get in some together time as well! Win-win-win!

I hope your weekend is filled with fun, love, friends...and whatever else you need to make it a weekend great!
Happy early Valentine's Day to each of you! Love my blog family so much!!

  7. Awwwwww I love Philly so much! I hope you have a fabulous time. No lie I am cracking up over here initially thinking about the fact it has "cane" in the title but dang that thing looks amazing. I wouldn't even have to barter with Mark for a back massage "don't you worry mister I have my own theracane....don't need you" ;-) I want to go on a blate with you!!!!!
