Friday Favorites - 3.12.21 + Beach Trip!!

Hey hey!! Happy happy Friday!! Y'all, can I just have a minute to bang my head on the table for two seconds? I am SO, SO, SO sorry for not posting! I thought this Wednesday was Let's Look, but when I went to linkup and it was a different post, I realized I messed up the dates!! ***Insert a huge sigh*** Well, that's that. At least I have next Wednesday's post completely written! Yep, we are trying to turn this into a positive! Anyways, sorry!! But, today I have a pretty nice lineup of FAVORITES that I just can't wait to share!! I hope you all enjoy! PS. I am still using my St. Patrick's day graphics, feel free to use them if you like!

*Linking up with Nancy, Shelbee, Erika, and Andrea

My #1 FAVORITE has to be my tournament from last weekend!! Before I left for it, I had my Let's Look all ready, but then it ended up not being Let's Look so I did not have anything prepared for the rest of the week except for this post! Anyways, I had such a blast at this tournament! I think this one might have been even more fun than the last! I will be sharing it in full, but I will go ahead and tell you guys that we did win and we got to have an afternoon on the beach!! It was amazing! Here are a couple of the photos, but you can see them in full next week!

That's us with our medals!

And the beach photos...

So much fun!!

Of course, I didn't forget Lincoln!! This week we didn't really get any toys, but we did try a new chewing treat! Lincoln's favorite is called a Bully Stick! Bully Sticks are all-natural long-chew dental sticks! Lincoln loves his! We let Lincoln chew on his for about ten minutes every day! He loves it! While we are at it, here are a couple of Lincoln's photos from this week! 

While we are talking about our furry friends, here are my kitty photos from this week!! There are a LOT of them, so prepare yourself!! ;)

Sweet Charles! Is he not so cute!!! 💙💙💙

I just love these!! Pip was laying on my bed so I turned on a bird show on my Ipad for him!! He loved it!! He was very interested and could not look away!!

Aww, we love you Pip! Also, I don't think I have mentioned this, but March is Pip's birthday month! His birthday is on the 31st, and we are so excited! We can't believe that Pip is going to be 1!

Cuddles with Pippy!

This last one is just Charles being super cute!! 

Mom and I went on a Target and Petco run on Wednesday and there were the cutest kittens and I had to take a photo. Aren't they adorable!!?? They were TINY, I mean tiny! I felt disloyal to Pip and Charles when I was cooing over the cuties, but you have to agree, they are super cute!!

There was also this very eccentric lizard, and it seemed like he was posing for me, so I snapped a pic!! So cute! I also love the greenery around him, he looks very fancy! 🤣

Another FAVORITE of mine was getting to go to the car wash with Dad and Clara!!! Clara and I love, love, love going through the car wash, so we were very excited to go to it with Dad!! Afterward, we got milkshakes! 

 These just get better and better, don't they!! 

On Tuesday's practice, Hart brought these St. Patrick's Day cookies that she had made!! They were so good, and so cute!! We only had six people at practice that day, so definitely enjoyed eating as many as we could!! 

Another FAVORITE of mine is that The Grammy's are on Sunday!! I don't normally watch them, but now that I have become a huge Taylor Swift fan, I am watching and rooting for Tay-Tay!!! I am so excited!

This FAVORITE is v e r y  random, but it is still a FAVORITE!!! Okay, so when Dad got groceries, he got French bread for us to snack on or make sandwiches with. I am a huge French bread lover, and throughout the week, I have stopped by the kitchen every 30 minutes and cut a little piece off. Now, by Thursday, it is almost completely gone, and I realize I have almost eaten an entire baguette!! But, the funny part of this is, is that every time I go to get the bread, the part of Ratatouille where they are picking out the right bread, and Collette  says "A symphony of crackles!" 

This week, there are three songs that I have listened to over and over again! They are also super random, but I have played them on repeat for hours at a time!! They are also songs that literally have nothing to do with each other!
Here they are!

1) My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion - I have kind of become obsessed, well, not obsessed, but in love with Leonardo DiCaprio, so I love to listen to this song!!

2) Material Girl by Madonna - This song is in Stranger Things, and I loved it!! I love listening to it!

3) Le Festin by Camille - Yep. This is the song that is completely in French from Ratatouille. I love it! Clara also loves it. We listen to it on repeat!  

Well, friends, that is a wrap!! These were some super random FAVORITES, right!!?? 🤣 Anyways, I hope you all have a wonderful, wonderful day!! Love you guys! See you on Monday!!

  18. Congratulations on your tournament, Abby! It looks like a wonderful time was had as well. I really like your song list...there is something special about music from the 80's. And that adorable little white kitten at Petco would have absolutely come home with me! That is most definitely one of my biggest weaknesses. I have to stay away from animal shelters or else I would bring home all the tiny kittens! Thanks for linking with me.

Hey hey!! Happy happy Fri-YAY!!! Has this week gone by super fast for you? Because I feel like it has flown by! I am also just realizing that today is the first Friday Favorites of March! That sounds so crazy, huh!? In March we celebrate Saint Patrick's day, so this is the little graphic I have made for the month! How do you like it?

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
