Some more Friday faves this week!

The Instant Pot
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this once or 19 times, but I hate cooking. I don’t enjoy the planning or the process or the clean-up. Enter the Instant Pot. It was a Christmas gift from my mom and I am loving it so far, especially the one-pot cleaning. This week I made this and this. If you have any good recipes, please share!

I am nothing if not a moody, melodramatic 16-year-old in spirit.

Day Date with My Girl
Last week, after we dropped Asher off at preschool, Addison and I went on a date to the zoo. It’s rare that we get to spend much one-on-one time together, and the first thing that hit me was how EASY it was to manage one kid, especially the older one. I also realized how much better she behaves when she doesn’t have to compete for attention. We had ourselves a super fun day date, and I can’t wait to do it again.

Notes App Makeover
This one is silly, but it makes me happy every time I see it. I took the advice of Emily Ley and organized my notes app by emojis and descriptors. I’ve already found ways to use it more by organizing it this way. Give it a try!

These Leggings
Maybe I’ve had them for ten days and worn them for four of those. I think they’re out of stock now, but hopefully they’ll be back soon.

What are you loving this week? Any fun plans for the weekend?
We had a hectic weekend last weekend, and it’s going to be Florida-freezing for us this weekend, so I am down for some family time and lighting up our fireplace for the first time.
