Friday Favorites

Today I am linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea to share our Friday Favorites.


Hubby and I went to a wedding this week. Hanging out with him is my FAVORITE.TWO

Sarah was the Star Student last week. She brought home her poster and asked for a picture with it. Between the wind and the rolled up poster we had some laughs getting this picture. Laughing with my kids is my FAVORITE.THREE

I’ve been feeling pretty blah this week so when hubby told me he was running behind at work I asked my friend, Erin to watch my kiddos while I go to my Yoga class. Yoga is my FAVORITE. Thank you Erin I owe you one!FOUR

We played with bubbles this week at Mommy and Me. Seeing the kids running around trying to catch the bubbles was super sweet. These little moments with Jacob are my FAVORITE. FIVE

Brunch is my FAVORITE meal of the day. So after I volunteered in Sarah’s class I took myself out to brunch. I got a power grain bowl with 2 fried eggs, harissa sauce, and sauteed kale. Yum!! Happy Friday, friends!

Father Daughter Dance {2018}

Last year when Sarah was in Kindergarten I got a save the date for the Father Daughter Dance, but unfortunately we already had plans to be in Florida and couldn’t make it. She found out after the fact and was really bummed.

This year I had my flight booked to Portland when I got the email. Now that she’s older and can read the bulletins at school she expressed that she really wanted to go. So we hired a sitter and got her outfit ready for the dance. I really wanted to be there, do her hair and to see her off, but hubby was totally capable. He even dealt with a plan B dress and did her hair!

My loves!Hubby sent me the cutest pictures throughout the night. He even sent me this little gem of a video.

They had so much fun!

They took pictures in the photo booth, hung out with friends and took a group picture.

Starting the week off after an amazing trip to Portland was not easy. Being a stay at home mama to this little guy makes things easier. Shh don’t tell Sarah, he’s my FAVORITE. ;)


I haven’t been feeling well this week, but I decided to go to Yoga anyways. My class was not easy, but seeing my stats on my watch was my FAVORITE.


I grabbed a bar of Moonstruck 68% dark chocolate while I was at Powell’s Books. This has definitely been a FAVORITE this week.  FOUR

Sarah finished school this week at 12:15 pm due to parent teacher conferences. So I decided to take both kiddos out for lunch on Friday. Hanging out with them is my FAVORITE. Soon they will be to old to hang out with their mama.


I’m down for the count. My throat hurts, my body aches and my energy is way down. Hoping my FAVORITE Jewish penicillin helps this mama out!Happy Friday, friends!

What’s Up Wednesday {February 2018}

I’m linking up with Mel, Shay and Sheaffer for some random monthly fun.

What we’re eating this week…

Monday: Brinner (breakfast for dinner)Tuesday: Schnitzel and riceWednesday: Sloppy joes on baked potato

Thursday: Out – Purim Carnival

Friday- Sunday: Out of town

What I’m reminiscing about…

Lake Arrowhead with my family. Due to barely any snow this year we decided not to go this year. I miss our annual winter vacation. What I’m loving…

I love yoga, but I don’t love the gym. For months now I keep saying how I’m going to look for a class, then I found one and it was canceled due to low enrollment. Ugh! Then I got an email from the teacher that her co-worker has a few openings. So on Thursday evenings for next couple of weeks if you need me, I’ll be here. What we’ve been up to…

There is so so much going on! I’m always working on something. My to do list is always never ending. We just finished celebrating Purim and now it’s time for Passover. What I’m dreading…

Summer in Florida. Even though I love love going to Florida I don’t love the weather. We have two trips planned this year for my sisters wedding and its going to be gross. What I’m working on…

Oshrat’s bachlorette! We’re going to Palm Springs to celebrate! Can’t wait!!What I’m excited about…

We recently went to a really fun family outing. We attended a Harlem Globetrotters game. The kids were entertained and us adults loved the tricks too!What I’m watching/reading…

My kids have been watching Care Bears recently and I just love it. Talk about old school! It reminds me of those Share Bears I got when I was a kid. What I’m listening to…

Capital Letters by Hailee Steinfeld

What I’m wearing…

February has been crazy! One minute I’m wearing shorts and the next minute I’m wearing boots. What I’m doing this weekend…

Celebrating my friend, Melissa’s 40th birthday in Portland! I’ve never been and have always wanted to go. What I’m looking forward to next month…

My baby girl is turning 7! Where has the time gone!!?What else is new…

We recently went to a Sustainability Festival and the kids got to go inside a trash truck!! My kids love and wait for the trash truck to come every week. They were so excited!Question of the month is: What is your favorite Spring Break vacation?

Spring Break usually falls on Passover so we don’t travel during the holiday. Last year we hosted a dinner for our sweet friends.Happy Wednesday!

Fun Fact: When I’m pregnant and the year after the kids are born, I don’t wear perfume. With J turning 3 in a few months I decided it was time to buy a new bottle of perfume. I’ve been looking for a new perfume for a while now, but always keep going back to my FAVORITE perfume, Viva La Juicy. It’s so not me! The gold, the pink, but I LOVE love this scent. It’s sweet but not floral. The scent is gentle and not overpowering. I was getting ready to order a bottle when I saw this set. It came in the mail this week. Can’t wait to start smelling good again. TWO

I met up with my friend, Liza for drinks one night. Getting out for a couple hours with a friend is my FAVORITE.


Now with my iWtach influencing me to move around more I decided to sign up for a yoga class. It was nice doing something just for me.


Working with Foodstirs has been so much fun! They recently came out with Minute Mug Cake Mix! It was scrumptious!!! A FAVORITE way to end the day! FIVE

Jacob and I met up with friends, Aubrey and Blake for story time and a picnic at the park. It was such a beautiful day! Meeting up with friends is my FAVORITE. The kids play and the mamas get to catch up. Happy Friday, friends!

Last weekend was super busy. We attended a birthday party, a MNO, hung out with the neighbors and attended a Superbowl party. Hanging out with my neighbors is my FAVORITE. TWO

Our friends, Jen and Remy joined us this week for story time. Going to these type of events make being a stay home mama my FAVORITE. THREE

Hubby took Sarah to get a new pair of glasses last week, but unfortunately I missed the Facetime call. We went to go pick them up this week. While these might not be my favorite, the girl wearing them is my FAVORITE.FOUR

Going to Mommy and Me with my little man is my FAVORITE. We celebrated Valentine’s Day a bit early with a PJ pancake party. See more here.


Thanks to my friend, Liz, I’ve been going to my new FAVORITE, Joi Cafe. If you are local you should check it out! There coffee is made with coconut creme and is out of this world. This time I also got the Mediterranean salad. Yum!!! SIX

I got the kids an indoor trampoline. Its definitely been their FAVORITE this week. Happy Friday, friends.

Valentine’s PJ Pancake Party

Twice a week Jacob and I attend a 3 hour Mommy and Me class.We recently had our Valentine’s PJ Pancake Party and it was the sweetest thing.

Each parent was told to bring a Valentine’s that did not include food. With Jacobs love for all things that move I was on the hunt for something whit wheels. I found this set of cars on Amazon.To my delight they came individualized wrapped. All I had to do was find a printable that matched our theme, sign Jacob’s name and staple it to the bag. Ta da! To print, click on printable and then print. We were also asked to sign up for food. We brought yogurt. The pancakes were a huge hit! After each kid decorated their bag they then put their Valentine’s card in each classmates bag. I love these little memories with my little Valentine.
