Friday Favorites #02


Happy Friday everyone!! Whew- this week REALLY flew by! I’m linking up with Erika again for another list of Friday favorites. You can check out my last Friday Favorites post here. I’ll try to post one each week. Here is my list of random favorites for this weeks edition:

Disney World!!


In case you missed my post from earlier in the week, I wrote a little re-cap/ review of our March 2018 trip to Disney World(focusing on our day at Magic Kingdom) You can find it here:

Disney World! Part 1

Looking through our pictures and reminiscing about our Disney vacation was definitely a favorite this week.

Ginko Biloba

A few months ago, I had a weird a morning where I forgot to set my alarm, I waaay overslept, and I kid you not, I could not figure out what the heck day it was when I woke up! 🤯 I had to take my son into school late and then I forgot to pack his water bottle(which to him is a disaster), and it kept going like that all day. I just could not get it together. I felt like my forgetfulness had been building up and that day was too much. So I googled some stuff and found this product:

Extra Strength Ginkgo Biloba & Phosphatidylserine for Optimal Brain Support – Promotes Focus, Memory & Mental Performance – Improves Brain Cell Activity & Fights Decay – All Natural Brain Supplement

I’ve been taking it for a while now and I feel like it has helped! I definitely figure it can’t hurt anything. I love to watch Jeopardy and yell out my answers- I feel like I might be getting more of them right lately! Anyhow, a supplement that helps my brain is a favorite for sure!

Our New “Pet”

My son’s Kindergarten class has been learning about insects over the past month or so. They had caterpillars and watched their transformation into butterflies. I mentioned to his teachers that I had seen pictures of my friends daughter setting her baby Praying Mantises free. I told them about these egg pods you could order online and then weeks later out hatch a bunch of baby Praying Mantises. They loved the idea and ordered the pods:

Praying Mantis Egg Case With Hatching Habitat Cup- 2 Praying Mantids Egg Cases

Well they finally hatched yesterday and they let each kid take one home! So now we have this little guy:


He’s so cute!! But we had to buy him food so that means we also have these:


A jar of flightless fruit flies. 😧 Yuck.

So the fruit flies are not a favorite but cool teachers that make learning fun, and memorable, are definitely a favorite!


If you use Instagram you really should download the Chatbooks app. It puts all of you Instagram photos into little albums, with the date, location, and caption included. Then they automatically ship you a new album for every 60 photos you post. You can edit your captions, delete certain photos, choose your album cover, and pick between hardcover or soft. Here’s a picture of our latest 4 albums:


I have the subscription for the 6×6 Hardcover Series. It’s $15 for each album. I just love that I have this collection of albums that are all in order by date and I don’t have to bother with printing my photos, or buying albums to put them in. I just post all my favorite pictures to Instagram and they take care of the rest. Apps that make my life easy are always a favorite.

If you want to try it out, use this link to get your first book free:

Date Night

This weekend my husband and I are going on a date night!! Our last one was in January so this is exciting news! For Christmas I bought him tickets to see his New York Yankees play the Angels here in SoCal- and the series is finally here! It won’t be as much fun as seeing my Dodgers play, but I’m sure it will be great! Here’s a picture of us at the Yankees series last year- I tend to get him the same gift for Christmas every year!


Baseball games and date nights are always favorites too!!

Well guys, I think that’s it for this weeks Friday Favorites! I’m off to Mother Son night at my son’s school- we’re going to see a Magic Show! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for stopping by!
