Friday Favorites

Three day weekend in the house!

(OMG you guys I just found this and I am in love. Dancing gif's for dayyyyzz. This is GOLD.)

I am so beyond thrilled to have this day off, it is much needed and not just because I have eleventy things to do to get ready for having people over to our house tomorrow. Not because the house is all that bad or anything, just because I'm a freak and feel that everything must be perfectly perfect and clean in order to have a party (clearly we don't have parties very often). 

I'm also hoping to get a little reading and coffee time in today in the midst of the cleaning and baking and such. 

Ok, enough blah blah, here's the good stuff: 

Favorite Song: 

Ooo this is a tough one this week because I had a few favorite jams but I'm going to go with Incubus- 11am: 

I know it's old but if you've never heard this album, seriously, go listen to it. All of it. You're welcome. 

Favorite Video: 
 This is MY LIFE in a short video: 

The Perks of Being Quiet: 

Favorite Recipe:

This is the recipe I referenced in this post. It's SO good. I actually didn't even do it as a crockpot recipe because even though it was on my meal plan for Saturday night, I totally spaced on it being a crockpot recipe until about an hour before dinner time. Oops. So I just sliced the chicken into chunks and cooked it in a skillet with the onions and jalapeno, then dumped everything in a pot and let it simmer for about an hour. Still delicious! Oh and we left out the bell peppers because bell peppers are foul. 

Favorite Purchase: 

Ok, so I actually bought this last week before I started back on my meal plan, so I haven't had it since then but I will be eating some this weekend. All I have to say is nom nom nom. Get you some. 

Favorite Funnies:

When I'm not on a meal plan: 

Have a wonderful weekend, dolls!
