Hey friends! Happy Friday! I’m excited to start a new Friday post series with you! I follow some bloggers that share their favorite items/moments from the week & I always love them! I get ideas for everything from fun activities for the family to new foods to try, so my hope is that you’ll find some new favorites for you and the fam too!
Let’s kick off the very first Friday Favorites!
Ro got an annual membership for Christmas to Legoland and he is OBSESSED! He has asked me almost everyday when we are going back! His two favorite parts are the Ninjago area – he gets to try to go over and under laser beams like a super spy ninja & they also have a ride with laser shooters that kind of reminds me of the Toy Story one at Disney World – you compete to get the most skeletons/ spiders and save the lego princess – I’m pretty sure we did that one 5, maybe more times! He also loved the flying ride and the big playground. We highly recommend if you live near Atlanta to check it out!
Brunch Dates at First Watch //
Another local favorite – you can find us there almost every week! We all share the avocado toast (seriously, THE BEST!) and the AM Superfoods bowl (incredible!). We usually get one more thing to split but we try to be adventurous – so far we are loving their salad choices. Also, the morning meditation juice is delish!
I mentioned briefly a couple posts back that we got our DNA tested (I’m planning on doing a whole post about this soon!). I absolutely loved all the info, well almost all the info, I found out I shouldn’t drink coffee or wine…2 of my favorite things… that was a tough one to hear! I have hardly had any wine & I am noticing a big difference in my sleep. #momwin / #lifewin Wine was easier to drop for me than my morning coffee, but I knew I needed to do it! Josh and I both completely stopped drinking traditional coffee, yes even Starbucks- I’m just as shocked as you are! I can honestly say I haven’t missed it at all! I switched to Four Sigmatic coffee which has 1/2 the amount of caffeine as a small cup of coffee (& let’s be honest, most days I drank coffee from a cup the size of my head..sooo HUGE improvements happening!)
We tried 2 different varieties: the adaptogen coffee (my absolute favorite!) & the mushroom coffee mix (if you need a swift kick in the booty in the morning to get going – this one is for you! Even with all my coffee drinking years, this one was just too much for me. I felt like I was on speed) That being said, both coffees taste really good, different from coffee, but no mushroom taste at all!
Note: If you are interested in learning more about adaptogens & how they may help you and your family, I highly recommend listening to this Wellness Mama Podcast (another one of my absolute favorites!) episode all about adaptogens! It’s very informative, but explained in a way you can understand, even if your background isn’t in science/health.
If you have been following me on IG stories for any length of time, you have probably heard me talk about this devotional. It is SOOO good! Lysa has a way that weaves the bible into each devotional in such an applicable and relatable way for women. Bonus: They are short & to the point – perfect for us busy mamas! It’s the perfect way to start your day with some encouragement & hope.
Okay, probably one of the best $11 I spent last year. This little, but mighty tool has saved so many of my sweaters, coats, & leggings from the donation pile. If you have clothes that pill a lot this is the tool for you! Warning though, once you start using this you may not be able to stop – it’s oddly soothing! P.S. Pop over to my IG stories today to see the before and after of this sweatshirt! It’s an insane difference!
Okay, it’s your turn – Are you a fan of Friday Favorites posts too?! Tell me one favorite thing or moment from this week! If you also write Friday Favorites posts, share your link in the comments below! I would love to read what you loved this week!
