Friday Favorites

I enjoyed doing Friday Favorites so much last week that I'm doing it again! It's particularly helpful after a long week to be able to look back on those things that you did enjoy.

Tucker's Favorite - This little boy LOVES outside. He is really hating the weather right now since it's about 0 degrees outside. It's been so cold that schools were canceled yesterday and are on a delay today. Little buddy just wants to play outside!

Favorite Moment - Finding Tucker's teething necklace last night. Since that beautiful string of beads arrived in October, he has worn it practically 24/7.

The only time we take it off is if we forget to move it to his ankle (we just wrap it around a couple times then twist it together. Wednesday night was one of those times. I took it off before I put him in his crib. Thursday morning he grabbed it as I was trying to put it on his neck and rather than him yanking it and breaking it, leaving us completely screwed, I let go and let him play with it. Lesser of 2 evils. Within 5 minutes it was nowhere to be seen. I tore the couches apart, looked under them, behind them. No where. After work yesterday, I remembered he was playing in Danny's dirty clothes. And there it was. Thank goodness I found it.

Favorite Recipe - I didn't cook much this week, but on Tuesday I made Mix and Match Mama's Chicken Pot Pie and it was gone in a hurry. Tucker loved it the most. Chicken, veggies and biscuits? Sign him up! It was a definite favorite and will be made again. I can't wait to make the Tex-Mex version!

Favorite Pin - This picture I found on Pinterest could not be more true for me at the moment.
My pregnancy brain has turned into Mom Brain. Fair warning for all of you mama-to-be's: pregnancy brain is just a warm up. Let's look at last Friday night for example. After Tucker went to bed, I was making my dinner, a turkey and bacon sandwich. I just use microwave bacon because frying bacon scares me. I was going to cook each slice for 8 seconds, meaning 24 seconds total. The wave is going, I'm assembling the rest of the sandwich and I'm like, why isn't my bacon done yet? I looked at the time on the wave: 7:15. When I decided on 8 seconds per slice, my brain registered 8 MINUTES! I'm not done. I was putting everything away and couldn't find the rest of the bacon, but also didn't remember putting it in the fridge. Well that's because I didn't put it in the fridge. It was in the bread basket. Yeah. Danny considered coming home from work. I did something else this week, which I can't remember what, that made him tell me to let him know when I'm back from my trip to outer space. I've lost it people.

Happy Friday everyone!

  1. Hahha! Too funny about the mommy brain. I've definitely heard that the "pregnancy brain" doesn't go away! I cook my bacon in the oven on a cookie sheet lined with tinfoil so I don't have to mess with it in a pan and it's minimal clean up. :) Just thought I'd share :)
