Friday Favorites - 1.22.21 + Happy Birthday Kate!

Hey friends!! Happy Friday!! I hope your day is going well! Today I am so, so excited to share with you a couple of favorites from my past week!! I apologize for not blogging yesterday, I got a little busy Wednesday and forgot to work on that post! I promise I will be posting 5 days a week from next week on! I hope you enjoy this post!! Make sure to fill out my blog survey HERE!

Before we get started, I wanted to say happy birthday to my best friend, Kate!! You are such a light, and you are always so kind! I have known you for five years, almost six, and I have loved every second of being your best friend!!
You are always there for me! Especially on Valentine's Day 2020! 😂 You can see the little tear-track on my face!!!

We always have the best times together!! 

Thanks for everything you have done for me, Kate! Whether it be helping me through a good cry (over a silly boy), or always checking up on me to see how I’m doing! Love you so much, Kate!!

Linking up with Erika and Andrea for Friday Favorites, Shelbee for On The Edge, and Nancy for Fancy Friday!

O N E :
My very first FAVORITE of the day was watching the inauguration on Wednesday. It was such an inspiring ceremony. I so enjoyed all of the singing, the new President's speech, and the young poet's poem reciting!! I also enjoyed watching the concert that night. I love Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons' new song, Better Days!! I also really enjoyed listening to Undivided by Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard. 

T W O :
Last Friday, I had so much fun documenting A Day In The Life, you can read it HERE!! Day In The Life posts are a FAVORITE!

T H R E E :
On Saturday we made french toast, and we loved it!! The recipe we found was super easy, and tasted great!! You can find that recipe HERE! I would recommend putting a tad more cinnamon, and make sure to check on it before the full time from the recipe. This french toast is a FAVORITE!!

F O U R : 
For practice one day, I curled my hair in a ponytail, and I thought it looked so cute!! It took no time! It was a FAVORITE for sure!!

F I V E : 
Another FAVORITE was going on walks! My family went on a couple of walks last weekend, and we had such a fun time! I did not get any pictures except for this one!

S I X :
On Sunday, only four people were able to come to practice, me being one of them, and we had so much fun!! Practice is always more fun with less people, and four was even better! Time with my team, even if it was just four of us, is always a FAVORITE!

S E V E N :
After practice on Sunday, Dad and I got Starbucks! I always get the hot white chocolate mocha, but this time I got the iced one! I think I enjoy it even more! This was a FAVORITE! 
Also, after our Starbucks tour, we had rotel dip, and enjoyed watching the Bucs and Saints game!!

E I G H T :
Monday I had an orthodontist appointment, and afterwards Dad, Clara, and I went to Wendy's and got Frosty's!! Times like these are always a FAVORITE!!

N I N E :
For lunch one day, I made THESE ham and cheese roll-ups!! They were super yummy, and took no time!!
Definitely a FAVORITE!!

T E N :
My last FAVORITE for today is my new blog topper graphic!! I really like it!

Friday Favorites - 1.12.21

  Hey friends!!! Happy, happy Friday, my FAVORITE day of the week! I hope you all are well! Let me tell y'all, I missed blogging so much in my little break, and I am so happy to be back in the blogging world! As usual, I am sharing a couple of my weekly FAVORITES! *Linking up with Erika and Andrea , Shelbee , and Nancy Before we begin, thank you so much Ella for letting me use this graphic for this post!! 💙  O N E : On Wednesday, I shared all about my dog, Maddie, who recently passed away. Although it was sad, I enjoyed looking back at all of the fun things we have done and seeing all of the funny photos. Thank you all so much for your love and support this past week! T W O : Two weekends ago, my travel volleyball team went to our first tournament of the season!! We definitely had a blast! We ended up winning first place in the 13-POWER division!!

Let’s Look - Coffee Area!

Hey there! Happy Wednesday!! I am so excited that it is the first Let’s Look of the year! Today we are taking a look into my coffee area!! Linking up with Shay and Erika !  To be honest, I don't drink coffee on a daily basis! Don't get me wrong, I love coffee, and I would drink it every day, but I just drink tea instead! I love hot tea a tiny bit more than coffee! So yeah, I love coffee, but I don't need it every day. Before we get into it, check out my posts from earlier this week! Monday I shared a Christmas 2020 Recap , and Tuesday I shared my Makeup Haul ! Let’s get into it! This is one coffee maker! We have the Keurig, and the water Hamilton Beach water boiler! We got out Keurig a couple of years ago from Costco, and I fell in love immediately! You can make five different cup sizes, and it makes iced coffee as well!  Since I don't do much of the coffee drinking around my house, here is the coffee that my parents use! As for me, I drink Twining’s English Breakfast

Tuesday Talk - A Day In The Life

Hey friends!! Happy Tuesday! Can we just take a step back for a moment and recognize that it is already January the 19th!!?? It has been 19 days into this New Year, and I feel like it all happened in the blink of an eye. It went by so fast. Today is the third Tuesday of the month, so that means it's time for . . . TUESDAY TALK!! Today I will be talking about how my day goes, meaning I will be sharing A Day In The Life! Day In The Life posts are some of my all-time favorite posts to read, so I am super excited to share this one with you! Linking up with Erika and Ashley ! Friday morning I woke up at 5:04 AM, my alarm did not go off, but luckily I roused close to my normal time! Then I checked my sleep app to see how much sleep I got.  After checking that, I laid in bed and read for 10 minutes. This is my favorite way to wake up and quietly prepare myself for the day! Then I got out of bed and went to the kitchen to make myself some breakfast! I made myself some hot tea, and because
