TGIF! This week has actually been a great week! I worked for one day and now we are on vacation! If you don't know where we are already, you can follow along with all of our adventures on Instagram or on Snapchat :)
I didn't want to miss out on sharing five random things with you today, so without further ado, here are my weekly five.
Chocolate cake in a mug.
The other night I had a strong craving for chocolate. Sadly, we didn't have any chocolate in the house (which is actually kind of surprising since I usually try to keep something around just in case a chocolate craving strikes). Then I remembered an episode of the Pioneer Woman that I had watched recently where she made a single serving "slice" of chocolate cake... in a mug. It looked good when she made it on TV and I love her recipes, so I figured, why not? And boy am I glad I did. THAT CAKE WAS GOOD. It's SO rich and chocolatey and I substituted white chocolate chips for the regular chocolate chips and it was perfect. It takes no time at all to make and you most likely have all the ingredients on hand. When your next chocolate craving strikes, TRY THIS.
Letter Folk boards.
You guys. I am OBSESSED with these. I follow Letter Folk on Instagram and am obsessed with all the boards and the sayings that they post. I know I don't NEED one (they are kind of expensive!) but I NEED one. I still haven't even taken Mason's "back to school" photos yet and I think this would be perfect. Right? Right. Seth... my birthday is coming up... and I only want the little one! :)
Yeti cups vs the Walmart brand.
Oh the Yeti cup. I've been wanting one for a while because I've heard about how great they are, but the price is what gets me. I'm already a cup/mug hoarder so I know if I came home with one of those, Seth would be a bit mad. BUT then I found this! The Walmart knock off version. It costs $9.74 and works exactly (in my expert opinion) the same as the Yeti! I've been using it for about two weeks or so and I LOVE IT. I fill it with ice and the water of my choice (I've ben rotating Lacroix flavors each day) and there is still ice when I get home from work around 3pm! AMAZING. I haven't tried it with hot drinks yet, but I imagine that it would be equally amazing with those. If you've been wanting to get a Yeti cup but don't want to spend the money, I highly recommend this one!
Sunday Night Fun and Games.
Has anyone else been watching the game shows on on Sunday nights on ABC? I'm kind of loving it! First there's Celebrity Family Feud followed by the $100,000 Pyramid and then The Match Game. I forget they're on every week and then we turn on the TV after we put Mason to bed and I fall in love all over again.
Halloween Hanna jams.
I know, I know. It's BARELY September, but I was browsing Hanna Andersson's website the other day and saw that they released this years Halloween pajamas. And... swoon. I'm such a sucker for pajamas and I KNOW they are JUST pajamas, but seriously. I can't. They're so cute! I've held off so far because I refuse to pay the crazy shipping prices that they charge but I may need to make my way over to the mall and hit up the store one of these days before all the cute ones are gone in Mason's size!
And that's that! Hope everyone has a great long weekend!
TGIF…Really, Thank GOODNESS.
