Happy Friday!

Happy Friday friends!  This is a Friday that I am pretty happy to see, not only is it the end of what has been a long week, but I am also pretty excited for our weekend adventures.  Before we move to the weekend, let’s recap the highlights of the week.  I love doing these Friday favorites, particularly when it’s been an especially busy or rough week.  It helps me to think of what is good, instead of focusing on some of the negatives.

First up, I am super grateful that my little one is feeling better.  I also am endlessly appreciative of my father in law helping out this week, to keep things running smoothly while I tried to entertain a toddler while caring for her sick brother.

I am also loving Amazon Prime sample boxes.  In case you have not heard of these, they are boxes of samples you can order if you are an Amazon Prime customer.  If you have prime, I would seriously suggest checking them out.  They have some awesome products included, and in most cases, you get a credit equal to the cost of the box to use towards a purchase of full-sized versions of included brands.  The one above is their Nutrition and Wellness sample box which I ordered this week.  It was $14.99, but you get a $14.99 credit (after it ships) to use to buy products.  I regularly buy Vega products, so I know I will use the credit on that if I don’t find something else I want.  I also really love sampling new stuff.

I have ordered the bottom left box before and liked it, I am also eyeing this one on the right with a variety of beauty items.

I have also really been digging this Steep Tea, particularly the Rooibos and Peach flavor.  It is delicious and a nice little afternoon pick me up if I am looking for an alternative to my beloved coffee.

I really enjoyed this post of inspiring quotes earlier this week, it was just the read I needed during a difficult moment.

I am also drooling over these Trail mix coconut butter cups that I think I need to make soon.

This green chili chicken stew has also been rocking my world this week. I made a big batch on Sunday, and we were enjoying leftovers all week. It was deliciously spicy and comforting.  It was also super nice to have something already made while caring for a sick little guy.  I will share the recipe next week.

What were your favorites from the week? Any plans for the weekend?  We have some fun family time planned, so fingers crossed everyone is good.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. I had no idea you could order sample boxes from Amazon. This could be a dangerous realization ha! Seems like you had a nice week. It’s great to hear your son is feeling better.

    Have a great weekend 🙂

  2. I had no idea about those sample boxes either!! That is so cool! And I order my Vega from amazon too so it almost just makes sense? That’s like free stuff! haha. Hope you have a great weekend 🙂

    1. That is totally how I got into them! They have one that is all Vega One samples, and I buy that anyway, so I figured it would be nice to have some single serve packets around and to try different flavors. Thanks, hope you have a great weekend as well!

  3. Glad to hear your little one is feeling better 🙂

    I’m so ready for the weekend. I have a friend’s bday party on a boat on Sunday which I’m excited for! It’s always nice to get out on the water. Enjoy your Friday!

  4. You officially blew my mind with the prime box samples! I’m going to check them out, I had noooo idea that was something they did!

  5. First of all – I’m glad your little one is feeling better! Second, I have been an Amazon Prime member for yeeeaaarrrss, and I’ve never even heard of sample boxes – how is that even possible?! You have me so excited now! Heading over to check them out 🙂
