Raise your hand if this whole Friday thing has you sayin’ HOLLA! My mom is coming to spend the afternoon with me on Sunday which is the perfect motivation to study hard in the meantime so that I can soak up every minute of her company. Sometimes the anticipation of a little reward is all I need to get my butt in gear and my mama certainly fits that bill!
It feels like it’s been a while since a good old-fashioned Friday Faves popped up around these parts and I can’t think of many ways I would prefer to kick off my Friday than a nice big list of happy things. So away we go!
1. The Beautiful Response to my Last Post
You guys, the response to my post on Wednesday made any hesitation I had about posting it worth it and THEN some. All day your comments (both online and in real life) reminded me of how much we have in common, despite our differences. My mom read them and sent me this text and I couldn’t agree more.
2. Doggie Sweaters
Speaking of my mom’s texts – she sent me this picture of Mojo in her new get-up to keep warm after being shaved yesterday. Does she not look like the cutest old grandma dog?! I can’t stop laughing.
3. Vegan Tofu Lasagna
4. Elf Yourself
If you’re in need of some comedic relief at any point this month, take a second and make an Elf Yourself video of you and your people. This is one I made of my family that just cracks me up so much and you can make your own here.
5. Blogger Holiday Gift Guides
Bloggers’ gift idea posts at this time of year always leave me with a few ideas that would never have crossed my mind.
6. This Year’s Funniest Animal Photographs
Some of these pictures are SO CUTE (as are the captions!)
If you enjoy taking food pictures, this post offers some really simple and practical tips to give your photos a bit of flair.
8. My Favourite Blog Cheerleader
And lastly, I have to make mention of my sweet sweet dad who shares all of my posts on Facebook and is always asking me how the blog is going. His support for my “baby” makes me so excited to see him with actual grandkids!! How I wish this weekend would include some beer-drinking at a hockey game or a great workout together. But be seeing you before long, poppa!
Well that’s it for me, my friends.
I am giving you a mission to find a couple of little ways to treat yourself today!
I hope your weekend is FAB.
