Friday Favorites {10}

It's Friday, Friday! Gotta get down on Friday! (Ha. Totally just had to watch that YouTube classic. So ridiculously bad. Now it'll be stuck in my head for eternity.)

I hope everyone had an amazing week and has a fun weekend ahead! Callum is finally feeling better after the worst week of teething we've ever seen. It was rough. But, we made it through it. Plus, we're all sleeping again, which always makes life infinitely better. Here are a few things that made this week more bearable. Check em out.

1. Free coloring printables from This Girl's Life.

Have you jumped on the coloring bandwagon yet? If not, you need to! I downloaded these last week and am officially addicted. I love it. It really is a great way to unwind. Plus, they're soooo pretty.

2. I love this video from Buzzfeed on 6 Knife Tricks That Will Change Your Life. That onion cutting tip. Mind blow.

3. Busy Toddler is one of my favorite Instagram accounts to get ideas for fun things to do with Callum. The other day, I saw an ice activity that I knew would be right up Callum's alley. He loves playing with ice! So, I froze pennies in ice creams, gave him my meat mallet, and let him have at it. He was in heaven. When we ran out of ice cubes with pennies in them, I just gave him plan ole ice for him to bang on, and he still loved it. Success!

Side note: Up until this very moment, I totally thought a meat mallet and a meat cleaver were the same thing. I decided to Google meat cleaver just be sure, and I am so, so lucky I did. You guys would've thought I was nuts if I told you I gave my toddler a meat cleaver.

4. Amazon Prime Music. A few weeks ago, a friend told me how much she loves the music and all the playlists available on Amazon for Prime members. I finally got around to checking it out, and she was totally right. If you're a Prime member, check it out. They have especially good playlists for kids. Plus, you can download them right to your computer, and then you don't have to worry about being connected to wireless.

5. Finally, just had to share this amazing video of a teacher flash mob singing "One Day More" from Les Mis. I love, love, love Les Miserables. Such a great musical. And, this is definitely the best song in the musical. So, I especially loved this flash mob. To be totally honest, I especially love all flash mobs. 

Good luck to all teachers (and students) heading back to school! I know this is the last summer weekend for the kids in our 'hood, so I hope it's a good one!
