Long weekends really are the best, y’all. I figured it was a good time to bring back Friday Favorites, since I actually have a few minutes to type one out. Without further do, here are a few things I’ve been digging lately.
Chestnut Praline Lattes
I usually hate “nutty” flavors but I’m obsessed with these. Granted I switch the three pumps of praline to one pump praline and one pump white chocolate, so I’m kind of cheating. Whatever, it’s delicious and I won’t stop ordering them until the season ends.
My friend Molly made me listen to “Cake by the Ocean” a while back and now I’m addicted to every single song they’ve recorded. The fact that the band has a Jonas brother in it just makes me that much more obsessed. What can I say? I am eternally thirteen years old. You can’t make me grow up and/or acquire good taste in anything. Stop trying.
Making Huge Messes
I was going to say “Painting” or “Art” or something, but I decided to be honest instead. It’s fun to randomly be like, “here, son, make a mess with no repercussions”. It confuses children. You’ve got to keep them guessing if you want to stay in control. Plus, little handprints are adorable.
Quick Road Trips
We are currently in the car headed to the mountains for what will undoubtably be the best trip of Maddux’s life thus far. I’m excited because we get to come home the next day. Quick road trips are where it’s at, because I really just want to hang out at the house and drink hot chocolate for the next month. Lazy.
I’m not totally lazy, though, I swear. I’m trying to be a little more conscious of my movement during the day, so I’m adding simple bodyweight workouts back into my life. So far, so good. By that I mean I’ve worked out once so far, but it still totally counts. I’m sore, but it’s the good kind of sore where you know your body still works. If you want to try one of my favorites, go complete this chair workout.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge Armpocket fan. I’ve reviewed them in the past, and none of my thoughts have changed since then. I was even caught on Buzzfeed rockin’ one. When I changed phones, though, my old band didn’t fit anymore. Sad times. The generous folks at Armpocket sent me a new one (since I’m super mature and told them I would be depressed if they didn’t and that it would be all their fault). Anyway, they wanted to also share the love with one of you! One lucky reader will win an Armband of their very own.

Okay, back to serenading my boys for the remainder of this ride. (I have the voice of an angel, except the opposite.) Have a great weekend!
