Hey y’all! I hope you had a good week. This is the second week in a row that felt normal to me, so this is Friday Favorites New Normal. I think when we return to living outside of these walls, I’m going to have to have a period of re-entry adjustment. HA!
Linking up for
A while back I bought and air fryer. Brought it home, decided it was too big, and returned it. Sound familiar? I did the exact same thing with my first Instant Pot. LOL Anyway, I kept hearing about air fryers, and after watching Shay’s (Mix and Match Mama) Instagram story one day when she talked about how much they love theirs, I had to buy one. Y’ALL!!!! I LOVE it. I’m going to share how I made the most delicious fish in it, the next time we have it. It’s so easy, and clean up is a breeze. We’ve used it to make cauliflower gnocchi from TJ’s, cauliflower fries and fish. I’m definitely going to be trying other things, but this is a good start.
Is this the cutest little thing or what? The Easter Bunny put one of these in Katie’s Easter basket (and also bought one for herself #wink). She broke mine out of the box that morning, and has been using it ever since. It makes the cutest little waffles, about the size of an Eggo. She loves waffles, and I knew this would be a hit with her. I think this would be great for making dessert waffles and topping with ice cream. I know you could use cake batter in it, but I bet you could also use brownie batter, or even cookie dough. This little gem is only $10. I’m not rushing things, but I figured grand-babies would love some little waffles. #alwaysthinkingahead
As I already mentioned, I apparently have a history of buying, returning, and re-buying. PS, this doesn’t just apply to appliances. 🤦🏼♀️I needed to cook some pretty big frozen chicken breasts last night for a casserole I was making. (that’s another story) I put them in my IP and let them pressure for 15 minutes. Holy tenderness. They were so easy to shred, and the meat was juicy and again, so tender.
Here’s the casserole story…Katie was cruising Instagram stories this week and saw someone talking about a casserole. She proceeded to start describing it to me, and I told her I used to make that when she was a little kid. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve made it in over 10 years. We rarely eat casseroles any more because #health. I miss those days of eating them though. You know what I mean? I swear, you can put a can of Cream of Chicken soup on just about anything and make it yummy. Oh, and did I mention the casserole also had Doritos in it? Enough said. Delish! I also can’t remember the last time we had a bag of Doritos in this house. HA!
I got new pjs!!!! I started wearing Soma Cool Nights pjs last year and I love them. They are so soft and comfortable, and I don’t know if I’d say they make me “cool”, but they definitely don’t make me hot. I always like a cami top, and this is a newer style that has a built in shelf bra. Now I want to replace all my other pj tops with this style. OH and right now they’re 25% off.

In case you missed it, Wednesdays post was about the Sephora VIB sale. I rounded up some of my personal favorites and some new products I want to share. You can read it here.
I shared this on Instagram this week. This is a map poster I got from a company called Mapiful. It’s such a great concept. They offer maps for all over the place. I got this one for Richmond. I have a collection of things that represent our time in Richmond where I grew up and we lived until 10 years ago. I was really excited with how this turned out. It would make a great Mother’s Day present. They have a promo right now, 50% off the 2nd print.
Are you ready for a biiiig surprise? LOFT is having a sale. hahaha 50% off everything and FREE shipping & returns. I did a post last week with some things, and I sure wish the rest had come in to share, but I think everyone being at home, and doing all their shopping virtually has shipping backed up.
