Friday Favorites - 1.29.21


Hey friends!! Happy Fri-YAY!! Just like usual, I am sharing some favorites!! Hope you enjoy!!

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

O N E :

My first FAVORITE for today is getting to see Kate!! If you didn't know, last Friday was my best friend Kate's birthday! I got to stop by her house to drop off her gift, and we had talked for a while!! I had such a blast seeing you, Kate!! We have the best times together even if it's just a 30-minute chat!! πŸ’—

T W O :

On Saturday, my family went on a little walk! We normally all go on a trail together, but this time Clara got to go on a trail by ourselves!! Y'all, if I am being honest, we didn't do much walking, we went off-road and took a LOT of pictures!! These pictures!! 🀣🀣

T H R E E :

On Sunday, I got to see Sarah and Malcolm! If you did not know, I am not sure if I had shared this yet, but Malcolm recently got a job as strength coach for Western Kentucky football and track, so they just moved out there. On their way to Auburn for a funeral, they stopped by our house and dropped off Bear for a little while, then they came back and we got to hang out for a while!! I was so glad to finally see them!

F O U R :

Also on Sunday, Dad and I made a "fancy breakfast" of chocolate chip waffles and bacon!! So yummy!! The waffles were just the original waffle recipe from Dash Mini Waffle Maker with an added cup of chocolate chips! 

F I V E :

During the weekend I finished my Marvel Movie Marathon!! Y'all, these are the BEST movies! I had such a blast watching all of the Marvel movies in chronological order! It was like piecing together the whole universe! 

Does anyone else just LOVE Bucky?? Sebastian Stan was my celebrity crush for a while, but now I think I am on team Chris!! Honestly, I like both Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans, but I love Chris Evans more!! 😍

If you couldn't tell, I shed more than a few tears over these 23 movies!! πŸ˜‚

S I X :

So on Wednesday, I shared that I was taking my last science test of 8th grade!! At our school, we have a system that allows us to take tests as early as we want no matter what month or what we are working on, that means we can learn at the pace of everyone else or get ahead. I finished ALL of my 8th grade English tests back in November, and I am so happy to say that I passed my last science one!!! That means that all I have to do now, is work on the projects, but I do not have to take a single science test until 9th grade!! Yay!!

S E V E N :

Another FAVORITE of mine, have been going on my daily walks!! It is so refreshing to get out of the house and go on a nice walk!!

E I G H T :

I also have been loving these peanut butter honey oat balls!! They are so easy, so yummy, and so much fun to make!! Great, filling snack!!

N I N E :

I also made THIS homemade oatmeal one day!! It was really good, but I think I am going to share a tweaked recipe for it!! Mostly it is just adding more and less of stuff! This recipe is super easy, it only takes 10 or so minutes, great breakfast!!

Aren't these 5 AM photos just great!!?? πŸ˜‚

T E N :

Y'all, this is a BIG FAVORITE, to me at least!! 

I finally finished Season 1 of Stranger Things!!! 

It was SO GOOD!!! If any of you are Stranger Things fans, tell me your thoughts in the comments!! 

I am already so into Season 2!!

E L E V E N :

Another FAVORITE, is all the new PIP-tures!! Get it?? Do you guys remember the yawning cat photo that I snapped of Pip back in December? Well, look at these two new gems!!!

I also love this photo of Charles!! It looks like he is adjusting his dentist's light!! 

Speaking of Pip, one of Pip's FAVORITES is hanging out by my window! I like to keep my window open during the day, just to get that nice fresh air in my room, and Pip loves to bird-watch and meow at any birds!! 

T W E L V E :

This last one is sort of a FAVORITE, but also some sad news. 

My dog, Maddie, has been having some minor coughing and panting for a little while, but it did not seem that bad, we thought maybe she had been pulling while getting her bath. Just this week, it progressed into constantly not being able to catch her breath, and sometimes shaking in her sleep. We took her to the vet, and there are two possible options, and we are getting the results soon. 
It could either be cancer that has gone into her lungs, or a fungal infection. Neither of these are good, at all. We are probably looking at a couple of months left with Mads. 
We have been taking extra care of Mads, and spoiling her a little bit!! During the day, while Mom and Dad are at work, we move Maddie's bed into my room and she hangs with me and Pip! We are just trying to soak up every last moment we have with her! 

Okay, friends, that is all that I have for you today, but before you go, check out my earlier posts!

This week on the blog . . . 


I hope you enjoyed!! I hope you have a wonderful, wonderful day!!

Hey friends!! Happy Fri-YAY, the best day of the week!! I hope you have had a wonderful week so far! I feel like this week has gone by SUPER fast! I measure the time of my week by WandaVision episodes, and it seems like I just saw Episode 6!! πŸ˜‚ Today, like always, I will be sharing my FAVORITES from this week + this week I have a little  BIG surprise for you all to see! I can't wait!! Let's get into it! *Linking up with Erika , Andrea , Shelbee , Nancy My first FAVORITE of the day is also my BIG surprise!!  So as you all know, our sweet pup Maddie passed away a couple of weeks ago. We missed having a dog so much, and it was so hard for all of us. So, we started looking for dogs. We connected with the West Tennessee Border Collie Rescue, and they found a male puppy in Prattville, which is so close to us. At first, we weren't sure if he was available for adoption or even fostering. It turns out he was! On Saturday, Mom picked up him from the shelter, and when I got home from
