Are you ready for a short and sweet Friday Favorites because this week has been a rude awakening?  Ha!  

Here are my faves for the week…

Lotta from Stockholm website is where you can find these.  They passed the teacher test!  They are more comfortable than Danskos in my opinion and a much better price point.  As I get older I am really focusing on quality over quantity in my shoe wardrobe.  


I had been hearing about these in the blog world.  They appeared at my Kroger!  That is another reason why I really do prefer to go in the store – there are always new products to be seen!  They are really good.  Anybody else tried them? 

I am hooked on meal prepping for my weekday breakfasts and lunches.  I love seeing my 10 containers in the fridge and they have made my life so much simpler.  I am fine to eat the same thing everyday but you could mix it up if desired.  I switched my quinoa to cauliflower rice and I love it, too!  This is so easy!  Mix your cooked cauliflower rice or quinoa with desired amount of enchilada sauce and a can of green chiles, add a bit of cheese and bake for about 20 min. at 350.  Yum! 

Kroger does it again with the 79 cent soaps.  Fresh snow!  Bring it, baby! 

My mom introduced me to Farmasi skin care and cosmetics.  Have you heard of it?  I really like the products I have tried so far.  I plan to try more and then do a full report. 

I have ruined so many clothes cooking so I am trying to wear an apron.  I bought this two pack from Amazon for 8.99 for both!  I love them and they wash perfectly!  


I am also trying to use cloth napkins.  I  bought this pack and like them, too.  They do wrinkle quite a bit and I do not plan to iron unless we have company!  img_1171

I am still loving cashmere woods by Glade!  I have it in my classroom now, too.  img_1172

I keep needing more basic black tees to wear under things.  I am considering these two items.  So, they are not faves yet, but I thought I would show you in case you are in the same boat.  img_1173

What were your favorites this week?  Today after school something super exciting is happening!  Come back Monday to find out what it was!  I do not have many other exciting plans this weekend.  I am kind of sad because both of my boys are soooo busy!  Jack has a choir retreat until 10 p.m. tonight and Mason has a quick recall tournament Saturday and needs to leave at 6:00 a.m.  It is all good stuff, but our weekends definitely do not look the same anymore.  

Make it a great one!

  1. OK, here come favorites! I’m straight from the hairstylist, new highlights and fresh ends, looks quite good, Black t-shirt from H&M with “Yeah” in rhinestones, and finally, Nice to be back at work with routines and some more action.
    Good job with the meal prepping! I actually have 3 boxes with lunch meat in the freezer, feels good! Even though my school serves lunch (free for kids and teachers, thank you Sweden) I’m not always in the mood for the school cafeteria…
    Yes, it feels strange when the kids abandon you… I’m so happy my daughters still spend so much time with us!

    1. Once again I wish you had a blog so I could see all this good stuff! And I love hearing about life in Sweden!
      The choir retreat now ends at 6 instead of 10 I just found out! Yay!


      1. You’re sweet, thanks! I have to work on my integrity first…!
        How nice that they changed choir schedule! Now you can have a cozy Friday together! Or…? I wonder about the “super exciting” stuff!?

      2. What do you mean by integrity?
        I hope we can have dinner together. That’s my favorite time of day. Then we watch a comedy. The exciting stuff is for me to do alone!


      3. I am a bit concerned about putting my life out on the Internet… There’s no special reason for it, but I guess I’m a “private” person…
        Interesting… I look forward to read about your afternoon adventure on Monday! 😀

  2. So glad your new booties worked! Yay!! I bought the cashmere woods Glade plug ins and candles at Target last week on your recommendation. I sent my younger son back with the plug ins – he loves things like that but usually has expensive taste in scents! I kept the candles. Hope you have a great weekend Amy!

    1. Thank you! I’m glad you like it and I love that your son likes sophisticated smells! My high schoolers have given me mixed reviews on the scent but I don’t care!


  3. I can’t wait to hear about your big event. Thanks for the tip on the Kroger soap. I’ve heard great reviews of the Daily Ritual brand so I bet those t’s are good. Hope you have a good weekend.

    1. I hope I haven’t over sold it! Haha! I have heard good things about that brand, too. I am getting to the point where I don’t want to shop in person for clothes!
