Friday Favorites

It's Friday guys! And if you're a parent, this means that even though you had to drag, bribe, and/or shove your children out of their beds every morning this week, tomorrow they will be up at 6am. 

Fortunately, this is why the Good Lord invented technology. (Maybe for science and stuff too. But mostly so tired parents can have 30 extra minutes on a Saturday morning.)

Because I'm #currentlywearing UGGs and sweatpants, I feel the need to torture myself with summer clothes.  This dress is accidentally on purpose heading my way via the nice people at UPS.

I don't think it's at all rash or dramatic to say that IF I COULD MARRY THESE SANDALS, I WOULD DO IT.

What?

This video made me do ALL THE LAUGHING. Because this is SO. TYPICAL. And also because I kinda want that little girl to be my new bestie. 

 I know, you probably thought I was a professional food photographer because of the artistic way I left the rim of the plate so messy. You're welcome.

The best food I put in my mouth this week is this sweet potato, quinoa stew recipe from my friend Mallory over at Hopefully Plated. Mallory is essentially an angel who ensures that my kids don't eat a steady diet of chicken nuggets and tater tots. Y'all follow her for lots of inspiration....trust me, girl is GOALS.

Finally, my favorite words this week came from my daughter. She saw me writing a blog post, and asked if she could "talk" to you guys. And this is what she had to say:

I love mommy's blog. I think mommies can be pretty no matter what other people think about them. (Whew. Well THAT makes me feel better!-S) Mommies are really good at deciding what to wear, and what to do. If I could tell mommies one thing, I would say I don't care what other people say you can't do, just do what YOU think you can do. 

When I'm a mommy, I want to show the people who think mommies can't do cool things that moms can do anything they want to do. 

I like when my mommy writes on her blog, and shares it with other moms who want to do things they think they can't do. (As opposed to the times she sees me writing and tells me that she wants me to quit the blog because it "takes too long." -S)

I admire moms because...they protect their children, and they are brave.

Yes moms, we are brave. We can do anything we want. But we cannot pee alone, because that is obviously not allowed and let's don't GET CRAZY.

I'm pretty much gonna start letting AG blog for me, as soon as I can teach her to use my computer for something other than watching Wheel of Fortune on YouTube. 

Until next time,
