Friday Favorites #37.

Happy Friday, friends!  First off, I want to say thank you SO MUCH for the all the sweet comments, private messages, and emails that were sent yesterday!  I'm so glad you liked my Confessions post.  Sometimes it is hard to let the world see your failures and shortcomings.  There is so much judgment out there so hearing your words of encouragement and your own #momfail stories was so nice!  xoxoxo

Today is Friday though and it's all about Friday Favorites!  Like every Friday, I'm linking up with Erika, Andrea and Narci to talk about some of my favorite things!


...the Garmin Vivo Fit Jr. watch. 

Right now I'm in total Christmas present mode.  Erika posted last week about these watches which reminded me that my kids have mentioned wanting them several months ago.  I looked into them and saw they were on sale on Amazon right now (for $30 off!) so I snagged one for each boy.

The description says they keep track of your steps, sleep and 60 minutes of your daily activity.  You can assign tasks and chores to your kids and they can earn coins and rewards when they complete them.  It's also waterproof so they can get them wet with no worries.

They are recommended for ages 4-9 but if the band is too tight, you can buy a replacement band here that will fit more like a watch.  

Check out all the info on these HERE.  (There are also girl band styles.  I just don't have girls.)

Did you guys see my sweet friends on Fixer Upper on Tuesday!?!!  How beautiful is their new home?!!

You can read a little more about this from Monday's post but we had the best time watching our friends on TV.  And is it not a dream for so many of us to have Chip and Jo work their magic on our home?  They nailed "rustic coastal".  I told Gayle (above) that the boys were so sad that they didn't show Kenzie (their old babysitter and Gayle and Tim's daughter).  Gayle said they filmed a whole day's worth of stuff with the family but it got edited out.  :(  #bummer

I'm thinking of asking Gayle if she'll answer a few questions about her experience on Fixer Upper for us here on the blog. Would y'all be into that?  What questions should I ask!?  I can't promise she'll say yes but just in case she does, I'd like to be prepared. I think my first question would be "How much of the furniture/decor did you keep?".  I've read that Jo stages the house with her own stuff from her businesses and then the clients can choose what they'd like to purchase afterwards.  If it were me, I'd make sure there was room left in the budget to keep it as is as much as possible!

She is also going to be posting more pictures of the house on her Facebook page so maybe she'll let me share some of those here.  I'm dying to see her master bed and bath!  I've heard they are pretty awesome.  ;)

These would make fun White Elephant Gifts or just "gifts for her".

These have been around for awhile now but they always make me laugh.  You can find them here with quick shipping!

And I wouldn't hate to have to one of these fun bottles!  Water with lemon is my favorite and I would love to stuff this bottle full of them! 

This could be a fun and easy gift for a mom, friend, coworker, Secret Santa, mother-in-law, sister...whoever! It's at a great price point with free one day delivery with Prime!

An Instant Pot.  Do you have one of these?  Do you love it?  What do you make and why is it better than a crockpot?  These are all the rage right now and I hate to feel like I'm missing out so I'm wondering if this should be on my Christmas list.

Find this one here for under $100!  And if you need recipes, check out these cookbooks with great reviews!

That's all I've got today, friends.  I feel like a slacker but I've got to tap out early with my post today. I am worn out and ready for my weekend!!  

For more Favorites (including this coffee that I'm going to be reviewing next week that has been a GAME CHANGER for me and everyone else who has sampled it so far---and trust me when I say, I was not expecting that), please join me over in my Facebook group HERE.  I posted my whole story on it in the group this week and I'm pretty much obsessed with it now.  If you can't wait until next week and are curious to know more about it go here for more info and to order a 3 day supply for less than $5!  You'll be able to tell how if it works for you after just one.  

In short, this coffee did everything that was advertised and I could rate it after ONE sample.  I didn't have to wait months to see effects. It gave me immediate energy that lasted all day, suppressed my appetite so much so that I barely remember to eat lunch anymore which makes healthy eating much easier since I'm not starving.

Seriously, I've never seen anything like it.  

I can't wait to tell you guys all about it next week but for now, I'm saying happy weekend!!  

Remember you can follow me @amandanall on Instagram and Twitter.



  1. EEK, I haven't watched Fixer Upper yet this week! That's my plan today while I work!! :)
    Can't wait to try the coffee!

  2. Why do I not have that infusion water bottle?? I need that in my life ASAP!

  3. I've been wanting those socks forever! So fun! I totally regret not getting an Instant Pot on Black Friday, the prices were amazing!! I'm watching for another great deal and if I see it, I'm scooping it up!

  4. I love your idea of asking her questions! I would love an inside glimpse!

  5. I would love to see the Fixer Upper questions too! Any questions she’d be willing to answer would be good with me. :)


I love hearing from you! Drop a comment below!
