Friday Favorites



It has been many months since I joined up with the gals for Friday favorites.  Hope you enjoy today's favorites.



I love wall vases and these are two that I have recently found on Etsy.  Of course, the arrangements did not come in them but my local floral designer created those for me.  I have one hanging on the foyer wall and one is hanging on the guest bedroom hall wall.  And, I'm sure you notice that both of these have a bird of them.  That makes them even more of a favorite for me.



I do Pulled Pork often but I've never done Pulled Chicken.  I see these packets and just decided to give it a try.  I used 4 large chicken breasts and it made enough for about 3 meals and it was DELICIOUS!!  I may even like it better than pork.  And, it freezes beautifully so it's great to fix, freeze and pull out when you need/want it.

This is a piece of my maternal Grandmother's tatting along with her tatting shuttle (on bottom left).  This piece hangs in one of our guest bedrooms and I treasure it.  I well remember sitting and watching her tat when I was a child.  I was so amazed at how she could create such pretty pieces out of basically string.  She never sat down that she wasn't working on a piece.  It is truly a keepsake.

I love popcorn!!!  Let me repeat that, I love popcorn! And, this is some of the best in my estimation.  I generally have 2-3 bags in the pantry and most every night I will have a cereal bowl full.  I do add just a little salt but otherwise, it needs nothing.  And, of course, it's so low calorie and that's always good.

Okay, let me tell you about these.  A gal that I went to high school with and her husband do gorgeous quilting.  They do from an 8x8 size all the way up to full size that can be used for wall hangings.  I chose these 4 8x8 originals that they had framed in 14x14 frames.  I had a spot at the top of the stairs going to our guest suite where they fit perfectly.  You need to go and check out their website, Pops and Momma Rose Art.  Their work is flawless and done with attention to every detail.

My Gran girls introduced me to this drink some months ago.  And, when I found it in the "light" version I was on board.  My favorite flavors are Peach Mango and Blueberry Pomegranate and they have good nutrients in them as well.  





I saved the best for last!  When the nutritional shakes and teas came out 2-3 years ago I didn't "get" all the "hype" at all.  I sort of thought it was "much to do about nothing."  That is, until I tried them.  We had one of the nutritional shoppes open about 3 miles from our house back in Feb.  I was next door to the shoppe shortly after it opened and decided to try one of the teas.  Well, that was the beginning of a "bad" habit. ~chuckle~  Then after a few of the teas I decided to try one of the shakes.  Oh! my goodness! it was divine!  It has become my lunch about 3-4 days a week.  These teas and shakes are made with ingredients from Herbalife and have a lot of good things in them.  And, the teas have about 5 calories and the shakes about 200.  It doesn't get much better!  If you have never tried a nutrition drink then I urge you to give them a try.

And, there you have it.........a few of my favorites on this Friday.

Have a super great weekend! And, I leave you with this..........

  1. A. very BIG YES to the popcorn. I don’t have it every day by any means but it is my go-to snack for sure. Love that you are displaying works of art by special friends in your home. Makes them even more special. I enjoyed your Friday Favorites, which always reminds me of mine as well.

  5. Skinny girl popcorn my fav and I was introduced to bodyarmor drinks when I was trying to get over covid. They have become my best friend. I drink one daily and my favs are the Peach Mango and Blueberry Pomegranate too. I prefer the low cal but if my lunch isn't quite enough then full steam ahead for me. I love our local nutritional shop in my community and lived off their boost drinks for a while. But started making my own and buying the bodyarmors. I do treat myself to one of their yummy drinks occasionally. We love pulled chicken too Lea but haven't tried that seasoning. Will try it out. Hugs and blessings, Cindy
