Happy Friday! It’s been a good week! I might have overbooked the kid’s activities- flag football, cheerleading, gymnastics, piano, Vacation Bible School next week. I am excited about vacation and then a nice, light schedule in August.
On a personal note, I have no idea how trying to keep a blog up and running on a regular basis became so hard. I guess it was adding the forth kiddo to our brood. I am determined to get back to 3 consistent posts a week but that might not happen until after vacation.
I thought I’d bring back Friday Favorites, but this time I’m going to share more than just my favorite retail products. I thought I’d share other things too such as a favorite new recipe, a favorite post I read this week, a favorite picture I took, etc.
So let’s dive in to my favorites this week, shall we?
I linked to it earlier this week but made Cooking Light’s Cuban Black Beans over rice with green salsa and guacamole and a little cheese. Cooking with the slow cooker is always a win. Who doesn’ want dinner taken care of earlier in the day? It’s so much less stress that way and helpful since the kid’s activities are in the late afternoon/early evening. This is a great affordable meal with plenty of leftovers! Now that’s the way to save a little money.
Just some quick iPhone shots of the 5 month girl. I love her hanging on to that foot- such a sweet, happy baby.
This delicious Puro Coffee I received from the sweet people over at Puro Fairtrade Coffee. Not only do I loooooove coffee, I love what this company’s beliefs. It’s organic and fair-trade, a product that comes from conscious heart by saving the rainforest. I love that.
A mid-morning snack, a cup of freshly brewed Puro Noble and some nuts and apricots.
It was a perfect blend- smooth, rich and well-balanced. Puro coffee is quite popular in Europe, but you won’t them in grocery stores here as they are currently looking for an online distributor.
Puro Fairtrade is looking for a US Distributor so hopefully by sharing information about this company, they will find one!
Are Artificial Food Dyes Safe For Kids by Real Mom Nutrition. I try to stay to away from food dyes, period. Whether or not there is a lot of research to support it, I’d rather be safe.
I scored this Old Navy dress in this pretty blue for $6.50 thanks to a friend who saw it and thought of me. I have no idea why it was on the clearance rack at the stores, but not the same price online. It can be dressed up or thrown over a swim suit. It will be perfect to take on vacation!
Questions: So that sums up my week. How was yours? Any new favorites enter your life this week?
