It's Friday, Y'all

Horray for another Friday!! I'm hoping all of our illnesses are behind us and we can have some fun this weekend. My hubs has to work but I have a few fun things planned for the kiddos.  But today is going to be another random Friday post/link up. So here goes!


I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I love Taylor Swift's new album. I found myself downloading quite a few songs to my running playlist. I can't help it, they're just so catchy! My daughter and I have been known to have quite a few T.Swift dance parties lately! ha!


While browsing Target last week (which is really rare b/c I typically try to avoid the store completely, thus avoid unnecessary items), I stumbled upon these red jellybeans. I'm not a huge fan of regular jellybeans but I've always loved the Starburst brand. And the fact that these were all red - even better! I may have polished off the entire bag in 2 days! OOPS! Thankfully Walmart (my typical shopping place) didn't carry them so they couldn't be replaced!


I recently purchased this sandwich maker and immediately fell in love! I love breakfast food and typically fix my breakfast/lunch around 10am. I never want lunch food (as I'm not a huge sandwich eater) so I usually fix eggs of some sort. This is an amazing contraption. You literally just load all of your ingredients (bread, raw egg, meat, and cheese) and close the lid. In 4 minutes you have the most delicious breakfast sandwich! YUM!! I will be purchasing a few more of these for gifts in the near future.


I am currently in the process of registering my son for preschool and it makes me really sad. We sent my daughter when she was younger than him, but for some reason I'm having a hard time just letting him go. I know it will be good for him and I know he will love it. But, geez, it makes me sad!

A friend posted a pic/recipe of a lunch she was having one day last week and I knew I had to fix it. I quickly whipped up the required ingredients, added a splash of vinegar, and bam! Lunch is served and is quite tasty/colorful! (Black beans, corn, tomatoes, avocado, lime juice, salt, pepper and splash of vinegar)

I hope y'all have a great weekend!! Anything fun planned?

  5. I just downloaded Taylor's album this week after already purchasing a few songs. We were definitely jamming out while cooking dinner last night. I just registered my daughter for preschool yesterday for the first time, after filling out 19 pages of paperwork…goodness gracious!

  6. I love TS too....and those darn jellybeans get me every single Easter!! That sandwich maker...hmm...thinking I may just have to check that out for my husband.
