Friday Favorites {Week 47}

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!  The days are going by so quickly that it’s hard to believe we’re almost a full week into February.  I wish my weeks were more exciting, but with work and the kids after school activities we are settled into a nice routine.  Here are some of this week’s favorites:

Yellow Belt

1.  TKD Board Break-a-thon – The kids’ participated in a Tae Kwon Do board break-a-thon last Friday evening.  Their school TKD club went against three other local elementary schools.  Based on their grade, the students had a certain number of chances to try to break each colored board, starting with white, yellow, orange, green, blue, brown and then black. Each colored board was worth a certain number of points.  If the student couldn’t break the board in the given number of tries then they were out.  My daughter was eliminated during the green board.  My 7 1/2 year old son was the only second grader from his school to make it to the black board.  He surprised everyone, but especially himself!  He was so proud, since at practice he had only broken up to the blue board.  And the icing on the cake was that their school came in first place!

2.  Lunch with an old friend –  I reconnected with an old college friend who I hadn’t seen in over two years.  We finally met up for lunch on Saturday.   It was so good getting to see her and catch up.  Unbelievably, I took NO pictures!

3.  Foreigner “Classic Hits Live” My husband has been doing a lot more driving since he started his new job and now commutes to work by car.  He’s been filling his driving time by listening to more music on CD. While we usually listen to Pandora in the house we still have hundreds of CDs. He rediscovered this Foreigner CD this week which was originally part of my collection before we even met. I don’t even remember buying or listening to it! He describes it as: “A guilty pleasure. A live compilation of an often over-the-top band performing their greatest hits. Each of the songs recorded at the time they were at the top of the charts. What could be better on a drive to the office?”

4.  Photo A Day Challenge – If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I have been participating in Fat Mum Slim’s Photo A Day Challenge.  I find this challenge so much fun and it gets me posting at least one photo a day to my Instagram feed.  The prompts are fun and you can join anytime!

5. Favorite bookmarked recipe: {One Pan} Skinny Loaded Baked Potato Gnocchi from With Salt & Wit. My husband loves gnocchi!  And our family loves anything “loaded baked potato,” so this dish will be a winner!
