It’s time for your weekly Things I’m Loving Friday blog post where we all chat about what we’re loving most this week. Woop! Please feel free to play along in the comments section and tell me about something that is making you smile right now.
One thing that is making me smile is the weekend. Ryan worked some long hours this week and missed evening playtime with Chase a few days in a row, so we’re more than ready for some quality family time. Plus, Valentine’s Day is Sunday and even though we’re keeping things low key this year, I’m looking forward to the lovey-dovey holiday. I think heart-shaped pancakes may have to happen on Sunday morning…
Have a great weekend, my friends!
Things I’m Loving Friday
- Endangered Species Dark Chocolate
This was an impulse buy at the grocery store last week that morphed into a very intentional buy at the grocery store this week. This chocolate is so dark and only slightly sweet but I absolutely love it! I’ve been enjoying a square after lunch or dinner with a smear of crunchy peanut butter on top.
I made a batch of this baked oatmeal on Tuesday and it made breakfast this week a breeze! It’s a simple recipe and tastes great alone or topped with Greek yogurt and fresh berries. A great grab-and-go option for you busy bees out there!
This adorable little coin pouch was a Christmas gift from my blogging buddy, Anne! I think it is just the cutest! She made it using pics from my Instagram account and I use it to store coupons and keep it in my purse. It never fails to make me smile when I reach for it at the grocery store every week and I think it was such a creative and personal gift! After checking out the Stitchtagram site, I saw that they make a small handful of different Instagram photo friendly products including pillows, pouches and bags. Thanks again for the thoughtful gift, Anne!!
- BabyShoeGame Instagram Account
I randomly discovered this Instagram account last week and think it’s way too cute! I love all the adorable foodie shoes they post and even though Chase is currently living in footie pajamas, I have a feeling I may become a big-time sucker for cute baby shoes once he actually needs them.
- Brittany’s Dark Chocolate and Date No Bake Brownies
On Wednesday I headed over to Brittany’s house for our weekly small group meet up and couldn’t resist diving into the no bake brownies she made for everyone to enjoy. You guys, these things are ridiculously tasty. And waaay more satisfying than usual brownies. They’re also vegan, raw and completely delicious. Brittany kills it in the kitchen again!
