Friday Favorites

1 | These sandals are everything. I decided to splurge on something for myself, which I haven't done in a while. No, these were not discounted during the anniversary sale. Last month was a very busy month for us and I decided to reward myself for getting through it with these sandals that have been on my wishlist for a while now. I'm so glad I bought them. No buyers remorse here. They are so comfy and are now a daily staple in my wardrobe!

2 | The crockpot is my new best friend. I've found it to be so difficult to prepare meals during the week. When Bill gets home from work all we want to do is spend time with Cam as a family. I don't want to spend it preparing a meal. So, last night I made a really stupidly easy crockpot meal. Chicken breasts, red potatoes with cream of mushroom condensed soup, chicken broth, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I threw everything in the crockpot mid-morning and it was all ready by dinner time. We quickly steamed some fresh green beans to go with it and voilĂ ! Dinner is served! 

In case you want to pin a few recipes yourself, here are 45 easy crockpot recipes.

3 | Why hasn't anyone told me about the Amazon Cloud Drive? Did you know if you have Amazon Prime (which if you don't, you need to sign up now! It is awesome.) you get free photo storage in their cloud? AND there is an app you can download to transfer photos right from your phone?! This is what I will be working on this weekend. I am in desparate need of organizing all my (millions of) photos.

Attention all preggos and new moms: You will want all these things.

Working from home as a new mom has its pros and cons. I am definitely realizing how lucky I have it. This post hit the nail on the head. I also relate to this post... A LOT!

5 | Lastly, this little video has been viewed by myself about 1.5 million times this week... My baby is growing up way too fast! {Cue the cry face emoji}

I'm linking up with Amanda for Friday Favorites!
