Friday Things #405
1. My kids LOVE fruit and one of their new obsessions is wearing raspberries on their fingers 😍
2. Dominic living his best life watching his brother during math class 🤩
3. I can’t believe those missing teeth!! I love it ❤️️
4. I need to implement something like this so badly, I totally have shiny penny syndrome when I’m doing tasks >> The Stateless Protocol
5. It’s not even Valentine’s Day yet, but my homemade peanut butter eggs have been insanely popular this week! Have you ever made them?
6. I am super inspired to prep some freezer snacks for the kids after reading through all of these make-ahead, freezer-friendly snack options.
7. A number of people have asked about seeing a list of my favorite Costco finds; would anyone be interested in a post about this?
8. And on that note, I’ve gotten away from the monthly favorites posts, but a lot of you have asked about them. Do you want to see these resurrected? Monthly/quarterly? Or include items in Friday Things? Let me know your thoughts!
9. I have LOVED seeing all of your beautiful buttermilk scones this month for the bake-along! SO MANY of you have been sharing them in our FB group and on Instagram; thank you for baking along and sharing your creations with me! If you haven’t made them yet, you still have the weekend! A new bake-along recipe will be coming next week!
10. TGIF! Duke wishes you a wonderful weekend! 🐾
The raspberries on the fingers brings back memories of when my nephew was obsessed with putting olives on his fingers.
Yes to Costco finds! And you could add Walmart, too! Also love monthly favorites! Thanks
Yes to Costco and yes to your favorites. I have tried numerous items that you’ve suggested. Along with your recommended TV shows!
Love your blog and many of your recipes!
May I tell you that your children are beautiful, resemble you, can tell they adore each other & get along, your dog looks like this dog takes care of your children – Your very blessed & lucky to have these awesome children, always enjoy them and love them. I certainly enjoyed and love my two children, who are now adults, STILL LOVE THEM :),,,,,
I really enjoy & make your recipes. Thank you for taking the time to prep recipes for all of us.
Have a great day.
Duke is gorgeous as always! And of. Purse the kids! I’d like to see your Costco finds but as I’m trying to go plant-based, I’m not sure if many would be useful to me. Inedible items would of course be good. I’m interested in the favourites lists whenever and however you’d like to present them. I’m intrigued by the Stateless Protocol but am wondering where all these tasks are recorded. The author doesn’t mention an app so I’m interested in what you use or other reader suggestions. I always look forward to your posts.
Hi Wendy, After trying tons of different to-do and task apps, I always revert back to pen and paper. I keep a dedicated notebook just for my to-do lists; I try to write down what I need to do the next day in the evening. I use these notebooks (they’re not quite full-size, but not too tiny, either) >> https://www.staples.com/five-star-2-subject-notebook-6-x-9-5-college-ruled-100-sheets-assorted-06180/product_MEA06180
YES to Costco finds !!!
i love to read your favorite things. i bought the tiffany necklace a few years back and i bought the walking shoes from nordies in the bad color lol. im always disappointed when u dont list your favs or your internet search favs. thanks for blessing us with your blog. i always look forward to it!!!
And I bet Dominic is learning math while watching. My sister Beth used to watch while her older sisters had piano lessons. Then she’d sit down & play the songs we just learned. Little sponges!
I vote for ALL favorite things…whether Costco, Trader Joe’s, Target, Walmart, etc. Also favorite TV shows, movies and books!!! Most convenient place for me would be Friday Things.
Yes to Costco and other favorites please! I get some of the best ideas that way. Don’t care how/where just yes please share- thanks!
yes please include you Costco favorite things (also trader joes, target, walmart – whatever you would like to share. Include them monthly or weekly along with Friday things.
Yes, please bring more monthly, weekly favorites! Everything you write is wanted. I don’t have a Costco card but I’d still be interested in reading your favs.
Would love to see a list of favorites – being from Costco or anything else! It’s always good to have feedback and recommendations on things you might see but are afraid to try, or maybe don’t even know exist!!
I remember when you got Duke as a puppy I believe. Now he has some white around his sweet face. Such a good boy. My sweet Cairn Tucker is 16 now and he has become a grand old gentleman. It is amazing how complete they make your family isn’t it? Love the pics of your kids and your fur babies.
Costco favorites—yes, please.
oops, left out LOVE in my previous post. Should read, I LOVE your Friday Things.
I absolutely your Friday Things.
I love the monthly favorites list and would also love a Costco favorites list . Thank you
Yes. Yes. Yes to Costco finds (how exciting..the feedback is always so fun to read)..and yes yes yes to your favorites of any kind.
Look at beautiful boy Duke..so lovely and sweet.
I would love to see a Costco finds post!!! I also like the favorites posts but prefer items that are oriented towards baking and cooking (kitchen items vs. fashion, etc.).
I love that meal prep snack thing! My kids are young adults, but still living at home. Frankly even for us this would be great. They tend to eat pizza, spaghetti o’s that stuff for snack. Snacks need to be more snacky and have punch. I love it. I’m going to try some of these.
And yes to a favorites list. I think monthly would work. Would love a costco one. or any other store you love. Aldi? Trader Joes? Etc.
I’ll echo the other replies and say a solid yes for Costco favorites and the return of favorites lists!
I don’t have a Costco either, but would love to see the list – maybe I can find similar things at Sam’s Club! Thanks for the link for freezer snacks – always looking for healthier choices for my teenage son.
Totally would love the Costco finds! Funny you mention about your favorite things-for some reason I was thinking about that just the other day.. As far as frequency-whatever works for you!
Would love to see your CostCo finds, and I have missed your favorites lists. Monthly, quarterly, or seasonally – any option is helpful!
I am interested in the Costco finds and the favorite things. Have not tried the peanut butter eggs, but I have a son who would be excited about it if I did.
The peanut butter eggs got me thinking… I’d like to bake and ship some treats for Valentine’s to spread some COVID-era love. Will you point me in the right direction for some of your favorite shipping-friendly recipes, please? Thank you! — Lindsay
I don’t have a Costco near me. So it wouldn’t do me any good. Majority rules. Love the blog.
Yes on the Costco finds and the favorite things!! I have missed the favorites! Would love to see them at least monthly. Can’t wait for the Costco favorites either!
