F is for Friday Favorites - here are a few of them alphabet style:
Please excuse the self portraits and the half naked baby in the background. A momma has to do what a momma has to do.
I am definitely keeping this black and white Colibri abstract print tab-sleeve blouse - I would wear this to work, out to dinner, or to church.
I am not sure about the Kristy Striped Fine Guage sweater or the Penrose Lace Overlay Tank. I love them, but they seem more Spring / Summer than Fall.
I am sending back the Lyle Polka Dot Stripe MIx Sheer Tank (don't have anything to match the navy) and the Bryce Pink-Tuck Short Sleeve Blouse (not very flattering).
F is for Food and Fitness Plan.
Thanks to those of you who linked up last week! How is it going? Mine is great - I am one day off in meals due to the our holiday get together on Monday and I had to switch my rest day from Thursday to Tuesday, but I am mostly rocking that plan out!
I will post the second week's plan on Sunday morning.
F is for flowers Dan has been out of comission due to his hip, so the yard work has been left to yours truly. The last time I was mowing the yard (which let's be honest, was a few weeks ago), I saw what I thought was a huge weed. I thought about attempting to kill it, but went inside instead. I am so happy I didn't because it was a sunflower plant!
I have big plans to put Ina in something other than pajamas and take pictures of her with them before they die. Who thinks I will make the cut-off?
F is for freakout, which is exactly what I did yesterday when my chain came off my bike while I was switching gears, exactly six miles away from my house in the middle of the country (seriously, the only person I saw was riding a tractor).
However, once I took a few deep breaths and got my hands all greasy, I fixed it in a matter of minutes. Other than that, my second bike ride was a success - I think I am finally figuring out how to switch gears.
F is for freezer - which I am totally loving right now. I freeze so much stuff. Yesterday, when I was throwing the ingredients for the sesame beef (<-- good recipe, Dan and Ina approved) in the crockpot, I realized how convienent it was.
I never use a whole can of tomato paste, so I freeze whatever I don't use to minimize waste.
Also, I use ginger about once a month, and hate to always have to buy fresh, so I buy a piece, peel it, and slice it into approximately 1 tablespoon servings and stick them in the freezer.
Anything else I should be putting in the freezer I don't know about?
F is for friends' babies - I was so lucky to get to hold my good friend Liz's adorable daughter Sadie.
Isn't she beautiful?
F is for father
Thanks to those of you who are asking about Dan! He is continuing to heal. He had a rough day over the weekend, but I think it was due to doing too much the days before. I know he is enjoying is extra Ina time (super jealous).
F is for fantastic Friday - I hope you all have one!
