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.

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

Friday Favorites - 1.19.21 + A Big Surprise!!

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!! 😂 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

Friday Favorites - It’s 2021!!

  Hey friends!! Happy 2021! I am still amazed that we left 2020 behind, and are now experiencing 2021!! What a year 2020 was, and I am hoping 2021 can be at least a little bit better. Today I am sharing a huge haul of favorites from my Christmas Break, Christmas Eve and Day, New Year’s, and recent thing too!  As usual, I am linking up  with  Erika  and  Andrea , and Shelbee Before I get into this post, I would like to slow down and talk about some of the things happening in America right now. On Wednesday, led by the president, there was an insurrection, people broke into the US Capitol, and people died. This is wrong on so many levels, but this goes even deeper. Back in the Summer, people supporting Black Lives Matter were peacefully protesting and were tear-gassed so that our president could pose for a couple of photos. The people who were rioting outside of the capitol, and eventually some broke in, were not tear-gassed away, and they were breaking into the Capitol. People were shot
