Friday Favs

Phew!  Life always seems to be going by in fast forward around here.  I’ve linked up with Andrea for Friday Favorites to share a few…

This is by far the most exciting (and most frightening thing that happened!  I can’t believe my baby is actually old enough to drive.  I’m so proud of her!!  She’s now driving herself to school and to soccer practice and my life (and hers!) has changed dramatically.

Instant Pot

I started seeing people talking about using the Instant Pot all over the Internet and I decided to ask for one for Christmas.  I am really NOT fond of cooking and I’m always looking for ways to make my life easier.  I usually don’t have a lot of time in the evenings to make dinner (and my kids hate almost everything that comes out of a crock pot) so the Instant Pot has been a lifesaver.  If you don’t know what it is- it’s a pressure cooker, but don’t worry even I haven’t set my house on fire, so it’s gotta be safe!  There are millions of recipes, but my favorites so far are the super quick Soccer Mom Spaghetti and Meatballs and the chili from this list of recipes.  You can also make hard boiled eggs that peel so easily and many, many other things.  Clean up is also a breeze!

BP Faux Leather Scalloped Tote

I love this $49 cute tote from Nordstrom!  I used a gift card to order the Ivory with the pink inside, but I love this blush one as well.  I’m excited to use this all summer.

Magnetic Car Mount

I drive ALOT and even though I have GPS in my car, I still use Waze on my phone for navigation.  I used to have a car mount like this one, which worked well, but takes two hands to get the phone secured.  Even though I didn’t really want to put a magnet on my phone, I decided to give this mount a try.  I love it!  It is so easy to mount your phone that I’m totally willing to overlook the magnet on my phone.  (You just put the magnet in the back of your phone case so if you have a solid case you can’t even see the magnet).  It also is very unobtrusive on my dash and clips onto the air vents.  I’m impressed!

Jax & Maui

My doggies are just so much fun!  You can also see all the green right now here is Southern California.  It’s only a matter of time though before most of it turns brown.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
