Friday Favorites

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


We started the week off with a potluck at the park. It was nice getting out and meeting new families.TWO

Jacob has been all over the place with sleep. One day he will sleep 3 hours and the next day refuse to nap. The other day I decided to just let him play in his room. 15 minutes later I walked to see him on the rug asleep. Oh toddlers!THREE

Sarah has become quite the accessorize queen. On this day she is wearing a unicorn headband, kitty knee high socks and a princess necklace. FOUR

Hubby worked late a couple times this week so it was just me and the kiddos. I needed a minute so I asked Sarah if she would read a bed time book for Jacob. I walked in and found them like this. Sweet loves!FIVE

I’m on week 3 of Whole 30 and have been loving all the new recipes. Here are a few things I made this week.Happy Friday, friends!

Jacob and I ditched school yesterday to meet up with my cousin who is in town from Florida. We spent the day in LA, eating cupcakes, and going out to lunch. Spending time with him is my FAVORITE.TWO

We spent the afternoon a friends house baking cupcakes. Watching these kids giggle was my FAVORITE.THREE

I saw this on Facebook the other day and laughed. Putting gas in my car is NOT my FAVORITE. I’m definitely the one on the right. FOUR

I love cooking for my family, but I don’t love how much time some dishes take. Thanks to my Whole 30 plan my kitchen is being worked overtime. Luckily I found some new shortcuts to make dinner easier. Definitely a new FAVORITE!


My friend recently gave birth to a super cute baby boy. So I brought my FAVORITE breakfast over to her house and met the baby. SIX

The other day we were going out to dinner when Sarah noticed we were all wearing vests. So we got hubby to grab a picture and made a mental note that we need to get hubby one too. Twining with my kiddos is my FAVORITE.SEVEN

Weekly Facetime with my nieces and nephews is my FAVORITE. I so wish they lived closer. :(Happy Friday, friends!

Friday Favorites

It’s been a crazy week, heck it’s been a crazy few months, but I’m back with some Friday Favorites.Today I am linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea to share our Friday Favorites!


My sister was visiting for 6 days last week and I still feel like I have not yet recovered. She had quite the list of things she wanted to do so we kept busy all week long. Spending so much time my sister is my FAVORITE!     TWO

Going on a mommy and me date to a Moroccan themed bat mitzvah and getting matching Henna tattoos was a FAVORITE.THREE

The kids were off of school on Monday for teacher work day so I took the kids to an indoor play place for a hot and sweaty morning. Spending time with both of my kiddos is my FAVORITE. But in all honesty I had a 2 hour quiet time put in place when we got home. These places give me a headache and mama  needed a break.FOUR

Getting surprise mail from my friends is my FAVORITE. Thanks for thinking of me!FIVE

It was my turn to bring snack to Jacob’s class this week. I made my FAVORITE Pumpkin Egg Casserole with challah bread. It was amazing!!!

Spending one on one time with my little man is also my FAVORITE!


My friend, Sarah and I took the kids one afternoon to this little Pumpkin Patch near our home. Going to the Pumpkin Patch is my FAVORITE. It  only had a few things for the kids to do, but at least we got some cute pics.


My friend, Whitney took this picture after class one day. His little cheesy face (and his bow-tie!!) is my FAVORITE!


Just as I type this post the Dodgers beat the Cubs 11-1 and are now on their way to play in the World Series!!! Go blue! The Dodgers are our FAVORITE.Happy Friday, friends!

Today is the first day of fall! It’s one of my favorite seasons. The cooler temps, pumpkin everything, the clothes, the hot drinks. I love it all! Seeing the temperature in the 50’s this morning was a FAVORITE way to start the season.    TWO

Celebrating my sister’s bridal shower this weekend was my FAVORITE. Flying by myself, hanging out with family and showering the beautiful bride was so much fun.THREE

The first time in what feels like forever ago, I did not host Rosh Hashanah dinner. Instead we went to our close family friends house. I love, love when a host personalizes things. Definitely my new FAVORITE way to set a table on Rosh Hashanah.  FOUR

My little first grader got her school pictures back this week! She wanted her hair straight so we woke up early on picture day and ironed her hair. She looks like such a big girl!FIVE
To get the kids in the holiday spirit I like to craft, bake or prepare something special for each holiday. Sarah’s friend, Viv came over one afternoon for a play date. We made apple scented slime and apple stamp cards.

Later in the week, the kids and I baked an apple cake. These little (and messy) moments are my FAVORITE.

Happy Friday, friends!

I’m super excited it’s Friday as our week has gone downhill and this mama can use a nap! Between Sarah having a horrible ear infection and has had to miss school, hubby has a sinus infection and Jacob’s 2 year old molars are trying to pop through, it’s been crazy around here. Somehow in between all our chaos we manged to find some favorites for the week.


Now that Sarah is in school, I have (a little) more time to spend on organizing. My under the sink cabinet is short so most storage systems don’t fit. However I was on a mission to make my cabinet organized. Jacob and I headed to Bed Beth and Beyond with my measuring tape and found something that worked. These metal storage drawers are my FAVORITE this week.

Before and after.


Sarah has been begging me to make slime at home. I finally gave in and we made while J was napping one afternoon. Seeing her smile like that is my FAVORITE.


I’m super excited to sample my shipment of Lundberg Grounded snacks on the blog next week. Chips are my love language and a FAVORITE around our house. 


The other day I was shopping at Target when hubby called to say he was in the area. He stopped by to say hi. We were in the mug aisle when I spotted these cute mugs. These mugs reminded me of our honeymoon days. :) They are super cute and would be a FAVORITE mug in my home, but then I’d have to make room for them in my cabinet and well that’s not on the to-do list. 


Finally got a chance to make this Trader’s Joe’s cauliflower pizza. It was delicious! Both Sarah and I ate the whole pie! Adding it to our FAVORITE TJ items for sure! The only things is it broke in half while baking. Any suggestions? 


Got to hang out with my lovely friend, Whitney, from the Whitney Michael’s Blog. We went to dinner and then went out to another place for dessert and drinks. My FAVORITE kind of moms night out. Happy Friday, friends!

Friday Favorites

I took 2 weeks off from blogging and spent them with my family in Florida. 

Spending time with my family is my FAVORITE of favorites.

With only a few days left before school starts we decided to check off a few more things from our Summer Bucket List and have some fun.

Picking fruits and veggies at the farm was our favorite. We love the farm!

Cooking dinner that night with my FAVORITE helper.Dinner was our FAVORITE of the week.

It’s been really hot here in So Cal so we have been doing some of our FAVORITE out door activities. Like staying cool in the pool with friends and playing in the splash pad with friends.

Our FAVORITE babysitter missed the kids, so she came over to hang out with the kiddos.

Happy Friday!
