Friday Faves

Happy Friday loves! This post somehow got deleted in the middle of me writing it, so this is my second attempt...let's hope Blogger cooperates this time!
Hope you've had an easy week, and if not, at least the weekend is right around the corner!
{1} My New Car
I know I shared this yesterday but it's obviously the biggest news of the week. After several weeks of researching and test-driving cars (and negotiating, ugh), I finally decided on the 2016 Nissan Rogue. It has basically every feature I could ever want (including that kick *** sunroof I shared on my snapchat Wednesday), so I'm super happy. And after Jonas the other weekend, the AWD option definitely has me feeling safer if we get anymore snow!
Not to mention, my parking skills have gotten much better, too!
(yes, that is the pile of snow I park next to in the left view of my car...)

{2} Snow Days
I've now had 7 days off from school due to snow. Luckily we've been able to get out and about, but the buses can't get through single-lane roads and kids have nowhere to walk to school than in the street which just isn't safe. I've enjoyed the time off to get some doctor's appointments taken care of, catching up on DVR (and other shows I never needed to watch) and reading, and getting in some snuggles with Cooper.
(my very own pillow pet :)
 Plus, MG had off 2.5 of those days which was the best part of the blizzard--some extra QT with my husband!

{3} Favorite TV show (this week)
This week, I looooooved watching Teen Mom OG with Caitlynn and Tyler's wedding. I feel like Ive watched them grow up through the tv series, and it was so touching to get to watch them say their vows. And speaking of vows...Tyler's were incredible-he gets major brownie points!

{4} Favorite Video
You may have seen this between yesterday and today, but if you haven't, you're in for a treat. If you didn't love Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell before, you probably will after this amazing video they made when they went to Africa (and have this awesome song stuck in your head like I've had all day).
Stephanie, this totally made me think of you on your recent Africa travels!

{5} Funnies

When you're off work for a week, you run out of tv shows on your DVR and all that's left to watch is Real Housewives of Potomac

When your entire neighborhood is outside trying to help one another shovel out, and one family (of all adults) chooses to only dig themselves out:

When you have to go back to work on Monday after a week of puppy snuggles

How it feels peeling off all of the layers of clothes when you come in from shoveling or playing in the snow

Hope your weekend is awesome!

  3. I knew you would love the Rogue! My mom is obsessed with hers and she can't get over how great the back up camera feature is!! Good luck getting back into a school routine....that's always hard for me whenever we're out for a while.

  5. I am so excited for you over your new car - it looks beautiful! When we finally decide on a small SUV, I will look into these. Currently we just purchased (last October) a new Toyota Camry Hybrid and while I LOVE it, I really prefer having SUV's to cars. I haven't had my SUV in years now. I'm still super jealous of your entire 7 days off of work - HA! Have a great weekend. :)

  16. I loved watching Teen Mom this week! Tyler's vows were so amazing, and it felt so good to see them so happy and take that next step together. And I feel like I need a few snow days so I can get all caught up on my DVR too! I have so many shows to watch this weekend!

  18. Seven days off! Wow. I can see how they can't get the buses on the roads and it's not safe for walkers.

    Thanks for sharing! Love that video.

  19. OMG the dog in the bubble wrap!!! So true! We got a light dusting here once and it took us way longer to layer the kids up, then peel the layers off of them than the time we spent in the snow! Have a great weekend!

  20. Wait Caitlynn and Tyler got married? I loved Tyler he was such a sensitive soul and Caitlynn with those terrible braces with the rubber bands on the sides......Where is Potomac and why does that qualify as a glamorous place for a housewives show? Yeah for your new ride!!! Those backup cameras are the best!
