Friday Favorites 7/21/17

Happy Friday, friends! Today I am linking up with ErikaAndrea, and Narci to share my favorite things from the week.
My first FAV from the week is a pic from last weekend: Baby's first boating trip to KY Lake. Lee grew up boating, and has spent the last 5 years or so teaching me how it all works. Now I love it too, and I can't wait for our little boy to grow up boating, and maybe learning water sports if he's interested. We took a trip to the lake last weekend with some friends, and it was a great time. It was so nice to relax and disconnect for a few short days. I know our weekend trips with friends will be much different once baby boy gets here, so we're soaking this all in. We've gone boating several times this summer on the Ohio River, but this was our first all weekend boat trip for the summer. I'm looking forward to returning to the lake in a couple weeks with Lee's side of our family.

My second FAVORITE from the week is this dish: Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes. YUM! This side dish was so good, and maybe somewhat healthy. Lee and I both decided it would go in the "make again" list of recipes.
Bacon, veggies, garlic, cheese.. what more do you need?!

My next FAVORITE for the week is another food item. This one is not healthy by any means, but I like it anyways! Coffee mug muffins... so easy and something yummy I can snack on at work. They come in packets about the size of a hot chocolate packet. There's 4 packets per box, and you just dump one packet into your mug, add water (or milk), and microwave for a little over 1 min., and then you have a warm muffin! So far I've only tried chocolate chip, but I like it. I'm going to try blueberry next. According to the website above, they have all kinds of other flavors, too! I'm going to have to watch for those.
My last FAVORITE for this week is another boating pic from last weekend... this time, with Flat Jesus in the pic. Our church gives out these flat Jesus cards and you can color him if you want, and then take him with you on vacation. That way, if you can't make it to church on Sunday, you take a pic with Flat Jesus and use our church's hashtag on social media. Then the next week, before church service, everyone can see a slide show of all the fun places Flat Jesus has been this summer. I love this idea, and have enjoyed looking at every one's pics from this summer.
Flat Jesus went to KY Lake! Also notice our Cardinals hats... love it!! 

This weekend we are planning to mark some things off our to-do list around the house, finalize a few baby registry items, order our nursery furniture, and I have a prenatal massage scheduled. I got a gift certificate for my birthday, and I am so excited to finally use it! This will be my first massage since getting pregnant. I have a feeling this will be the highlight of my weekend. Happy Friday, friends!!
