I was realllllly needing a Friday right about now. #perfecttiming
My week has kind of been a blur…but today, is my favorite day! After Christmas, I declared Fridays our “do nothing” days at home. The little girls and I play outside, we bake, we play games…we basically do nothing and it feels so darn good. Here’s hoping you do a little nothing at some point today too!
Just like every Friday, I’m linking up with three of my favorite friends, Andrea, Erika and Narci and sharing some of my favorite things from the week today. It’s basically total randomness. Enjoy :)!
My first favorite is this…
…my publishers have extended their special offer for my latest book through the weekend! If you order Kids in the Kitchen now then my publisher will let you have your choice of either Mix and Match Meal Planner or Mix and Match Cakes absolutely FREE*.
It’s easy. Here’s how:

So…how could that not be a favorite of mine?!?!
Okay, after today, I’ll stop talking about these cute Crocs…but, I wanted you to see that my girls’ finally arrived and they LOVE them so much! Cheers for easy to wear shoes they can enjoy all spring and summer long!
Many of you know my sweet friend Brooke. Well, this week, they’re in China and they finally met their new precious daughter…
…sweet Willow is forever in their arms now and coming home with them soon. Isn’t adoption amazing?!?! I mean…FOREVER. They are a family FOREVER AND EVER.
Adoption is just so wonderful. And God is SO GOOD!
I never watch movies on a plane because I always want to read. Well, after reading to and from D.C. and then again to and from Boston, I told Andrew I wanted a movie to watch to and from L.A…so, knowing what a HUGE Peter Berg fan I am, he said that I should watch these two…
Deepwater Horizon and…
And I LOVED them both!
I thought they were both done so well (hello, Peter Berg!). They were intense, and dramatic, and full of suspense and both based on true stories…and they made my flights fly by 😉 . So, if you need a movie to buy/rent/watch this weekend, they’re both now favorites of mine. And bonus, last May when we went to Boston, they were filming Patriots Day and that’s when I sat a few rows behind…
…J.K. Simmons at the Sox game (he was in town filming the movie). Talk about an amazing actor!!
Every time I get my hair or makeup professionally done, I always ask what their favorite products/tips/tricks are (because I love learning from the experts!). So, this week when I was in L.A., the makeup artist told me that this was her favorite product…
…Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector. The girl doing my hair and I were both curious, so she said she would only do one of my eyes so that we could see the difference. And HOLY COW! I ordered it that very minute for myself. You put a little bit of this brightening magic under your eye and then layer your concealer on top and it made a MAJOR difference. So, just a dab of this and then a dab of concealer on top and bam, your eyes look so much more awake and your face really pops. Amazing!
And I’m wrapping up my faves this week with one of my favorite flavors…
Have a great weekend!
