How are you guys this morning? We’re entering another weekend with limited plans on our agenda and, once again, I am thrilled. Ryan and I felt a little exhausted after so many jam-packed weekends over the course of the past few months that when February popped up on our calendars without many commitments, we dubbed it “No Plans February” and I’m loving every second. I’m crossing my fingers for lots of sunshine and time outside.
Though I am not sure what our plans for the weekend entail, I do know that today is Things I’m Loving Friday on Peanut Butter Fingers! Every Friday I share a little bit about what I’m loving most on the blog and this week is no different. Below you will find a short list of the things that are making me smile and I’d love to hear all about what you’re loving in the comments section of this post.
Have a great weekend!!
Things I’m Loving Friday
My friend Krystal gave me the cutest pair of Freshly Picked baby moccasins for Chase at my baby shower. I slipped them on his feet a couple of weeks ago and immediately realized he will likely outgrow them soon, so now he’s wearing them everywhere because I want to get a ton of use out of them before it’s too late. I think they are just about the most adorable baby shoes out there. Thank you, Krystal!
(And for those who asked about Chase’s t-shirt yesterday, I bought it on Zulily but the brand is The Talking Shirt.)
- Shaved Brussels Sprouts
I picked up a couple of bags of shaved Brussels sprouts at Target last weekend and they’ve been such a great timesaver for me this week! Chopping Brussels sprouts can be a bit of a pain, but these shaved Brussels sprouts make it super easy to toss them in a bit of oil and season them with garlic salt and pepper before roasting. They’re great by themselves as a side dish, but I’ve also thrown them into a lunchtime salad and a pasta dish for dinner, too. Anything that makes eating veggies easier gets an A+ in my book.
Three cheers for sweatpants! And double three cheers (six cheers?) for ultra comfy sweatpants that aren’t horrifically ugly! At the end of a long day, nothing feels better than slipping into these heathered Love Tree sweats and I’m pretty sure they’re the softest pants I own. The material is lightweight but cozy and I am in love. Plus, they’re super affordable (only $19) so you can’t go wrong. The model online paired them with sneakers and a fitted tee for a casual look which is right up my alley, but I’m still trying to wrap my head around wearing sweats as real pants…
- Chase’s Desire To Eat My Phone
I have about a million pictures of Chase that look like the one you see above because whenever I try to take his picture or Facetime with my parents, Chase inevitably reaches out to try to grab my phone and put it in his mouth. The crazy part is that he seems to go right for the tiny camera at the top corner of the phone. How does he know!? I have so many videos on my phone of him smiling and cooing that are then followed by total darkness as Chase licks and mouths the camera. What a goof!
- This Updo
Okay, I know this is a totally random thing to include in today’s post, but I think this updo is absolutely gorgeous! I swear if my wedding hadn’t already come and gone, I would want my hair done just like this for our big day. I had to share it here just incase it calls to any of you who might have a wedding on the calendar this year (wouldn’t this be beautiful for a bridesmaid’s hair!?) or some kind of a fancy schmancy event coming up. If you get your hair done like this, please send me a pic so I can live vicariously through you. So pretty!
A couple of weeks ago, I shared some information about the adorable handmade key fobs my friend (and Burn Boot Camp childcare rockstar!) Lindsey started making and I’m happy to say she now has an Etsy shop where you can find these adorable key fobs for just $6.50. Lindsey is the best and means a lot to our family and if her key fobs appeal to you (she has tons of patterns and colors available), you can definitely feel good about supporting such a kind woman!
