ÔĽŅFriday Favorites

It’s finally Friday! This week¬†was kind of blah. It’s been raining and raining and RAINING so much. We’ve splashed in the rain a bit which was so fun but my phone ran out of storage so I didn’t get photos! Ugh! Thankfully I cleared it last night so I’ll ready to snap photos with my phone. ūüôā

one // NO SPOILERS – We have been watching a lot of movies lately.¬†My hubby¬†and I recently watched 10 Cloverfield Lane. Oh. My. Gosh. Psychological thriller, what is going on, wait what is that kind of movie. SO good! I loved it! The characters are so relatable, which is something I love especially in¬†female characters. And then we watched¬†Beauty and the Beast¬†you guys!!! YAS!!! I was so excited! Like I literally couldn’t¬†handle myself. Laughter, tears, anxiety, anger, disgust. So many emotions!¬†Perfect performance by the cast! Also Emma Watson. Need I say more? And then after that, we watched¬†Moana and it was so cute! I keep humming the songs when I do dishes!

two¬†// Watching this girl nap never gets old. Her gorgeous, hand-crocheted blanket, a pillow that she totally stole from us (and helps her sleep because it smells like us), and of course she has to have her friends with her. It’s just precious and sweet and oh my gosh baby girl stay little for a little longer please!

dishes

three¬†// Okay, so I’ve recently changed my dish-washing habit. Game changer you guys. I used to wash dishes after I put Lilly down. It took me forever, the dishwasher and dish mat would be full and there’d STILL be dishes in the sink (super discouraging!), and I wouldn’t get much time with my hubby. So late last¬†week I decided to do dishes after meals and it’s been awesome. Less time washing dishes at night means more time with the hubby. Um yes please!

four // I’m due for some new mascara and super excited! I’m debating on between this one and this one. What do you think? They also have blue and purple toned ones, which I think are pretty fun but not for me.

What are your weekend plans?

Conversation Starters

convostarter

It has been cold and snowing here in the Midwest lately!¬†Indoor play dates, movies, popcorn, baking (bread,¬†cookies, etc.), and lots of hot beverages like this new tea that I got (It’s awesome! Plum white is perfect!). Cold, snowy, hot beverage days also means more coffee dates with friends. And my husband when he’s got some time. That man works SO hard. Proud of him. ūüôā

Anyone else like going out for coffee with a friend or the spouse? I love it. In fact, one of my favorite dates with my husband includes going for hot chocolate during the cold seasons or cold drink during the warm seasons. Without a toddler in tow. I love her and enjoy bringing her with me, buuuut it’s nice to have an uninterrupted conversation with someone every once in a while. You know what I mean mamas?

In order to have a conversation, you need some communication. Questions to ask, something to talk about. I mean dirty diapers and how many times you can make cheese quesadillas in a week (I’ve got 4 days so far!) are great to chat about. But there’s got to be something more, right? I found some of these great questions here and the rest are from my own experience, awkward pauses and all. ūüėČ

1.) If you could live in any era, what would it be and why?

2.) If you could change your name, what would you change it to?

3.) If you could invite any 3 people over for dinner (dead or alive), who would you invite and why?

4.) What’s your favorite thing about yourself and why?

5.) Are you an optimist, pessimist, or realist? Give a real life example.

6.) What are some things you splurge on and why?

7.) What are some things you save on and why?

8.) If you could only have one hobby for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

9.) Describe your current life situation in 3 adjectives.

10.) What’s your dream house look like? Big, small, modern, old?

Happy Hump Day friends! ūüėÄ What’s your favorite drink to order on coffee dates?
