Oh, Friday, how I love thee! It’s time to link up with Andrea and Erica for Friday Favorites.

How was your week? It was a lot with Superbowl on Sunday and Valentine’s Day on Monday, right?

An empty nester Valentine’s on a Monday:

Enjoy the rotting bananas in my photo? A sweet student gave me the yellow rose at school (he gave them to all of his teachers) and then I laid out our wedding china for us to use in front of the tv!

I made meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and brussels sprouts:

I put a card and chocolate in Tom’s car in the morning and he brought me a Star Wars card and a Magnolia Journal, which I love.

Our shower tile was done on Monday…

I wasn’t sure…

And, the final tile work! I think I’m gonna like it! My picture wouldn’t edit, fyi…

This is our vanity inspo and I think we are going to have to have it custom made…

We have looked everywhere in our price range and we can have it made to our specifications for a decent price from someone Tom works with.

One of our lunches this week was a favorite – AmyLu apple gouda chicken sausage, broccoli, and potatoes.

My breakfast burritos this week really were a favorite. I think I should do them again next week!

I am still loving my frother each morning!

I had a dinner out this week and had a glass of prosecco and some veggie sushi. I saw my friend Dee for the first time in maybe 8 months.

We had some warm weather this week for walking and then some patio sitting before I started dinner! I know we will get more winter, but I am enjoying these little breaks when I can. I don’t really hate winter, but I think it just makes everything more difficult.

I picked up a $15 Black and Decker brand steamer at Target and I am loving it!

Our new washer and dryer arrived! Yay! Again, I couldn’t edit this photo for some reason.

And, if you are looking for a fun, good old fashioned rom-com, watch this on Prime this weekend. I really enjoyed it!

Our students have a four day weekend, but teachers don’t. We have parent/teacher conferences on Monday and a teacher work day on Tuesday.

What were your faves this week?

  1. I’m always looking for a good romcom! Thanks for the suggestion. I bough wraps this week just to make those egg rolls ups; though I plan to add a bit of salsa to mine.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. I thought it was really cute and funny! I laughed out loud! Salsa would be great for a more Tex Mex feel. I have loved the simple combo I made and it’s only 2 points!


  2. I LOVE your new shower tile and that vanity will be gorgeous! We have a wood-look tile in our boys’ bathroom shower and I almost wish I used it in more places, it is stunning.
    We are in Indiana this morning and it SNOWED! I agree, winter weather makes things difficult. Like driving, walking outside, etc. – ha!


    1. Thank you! I thought it was really unique. It kinda reminds me of a bourbon barrel.
      Oh – I feel for you. Indiana can be so much colder than KY. Wear that winter gear for the last time this year – probably. Good luck to your son!


  3. I noted your movie suggestion! We saw 2 movies this past week- Merry Me (loved it!) and on Valentines Day we went to see The Notebook. The theatre was packed and I didnt really remember ANY of the movie from when it originally came out. We both loved it! Tony is so good appt going to any and all movies with me and then he also goes to shoot ’em up movies and such with his guy friends. (bro dates!) …..I had a dinner out last night with one of my dearest and oldest friends ( I was engaged to her brother a long time ago) and she’s still my “sista” ……and she went to see Tays new house. She loved it too! Headed to the beach house today for a long weekend and I am HERE FOR IT! Happy Friday!!


    1. Let me know if you like it. Tom will go to most movies with me and I will go to most with him. I have surprised myself by liking movies I didn’t think I would like. I have not really been in a movie theater mood lately but we are going to go tomorrow – either Murder on the Nile or Uncharted. That is so fun – your almost sis in law and the beach house!


      1. I will! Walking with Kelsey and my grand doggy this morning- then Dog movie this aftn (Tony’s pick lol ) but i love me some Tatum Channing!! And seeing unchartered tomorrow. It’s a movie weekend!


  4. Your bath is coming along nicely. I like the vanity idea. My favorite way to eat bananas are with lots of black spots, lol.
