Things I'm Loving FriYay #12


Hello friends and happy Friday to you!  I don't know about where you are at, but here in Wyoming it feels like we skipped fall and went straight to winter in one day.

Yesterday my son and I spent the afternoon outside enjoying the 80˚ weather and today it is snowing.  But that is to be expected here and, to be totally honest, I kind of like it.  Not because I like the freezing cold, but it is fun to know it may be super nice again tomorrow.


Last week I went over a few fall faves of mine and, though I would really like to continue on the fall train, I discovered some amazing new products and a group this week that I wanted to share with you all.  So here you go--this week's Things I'm Loving FriYay!

  • MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers)
I have been wanting to join this group for a while but couldn't while I was a working mom, due to the hours they met, and then I kind of just lost track of everything this past year.  But making mom friends is an incredibly high priority for me because, let's face it, our kids are awesome, but we would probably go insane if we had to spent all day every day inside with them.  Am I right?

Yesterday was my first MOPS meeting at my church (they meet twice a month) and it was fantastic.  The table I was assigned to was filled with a group of lovely ladies, many of whom I share a lot in common with.

MOPS is basically a Christian based group in which mothers from all walks of life can gather and enjoy each other's company for a couple of hours every other week.  Not only do they feed you food, but they have these angels on Earth called Moppets who watch your children for you while you are meeting.  For more information or to get involved please click here.

  • U Count Marketplace


While at MOPS yesterday I won a doorprize.  First of all, I never win doorprizes, so that was the start of something magical.  Second of all, what I won was truly spectacular and introduced me to a new product line I was not formerly aware of.

I won this cute little fabric coffee koozie.  Though I truly do love it, I was most happy with the note on the inside.  It turns out that this koozie, along with many other products, was hand made by a woman who has been rescued from sexual slavery in India's red light district.  I mean, that is amazing right!?!

  • Buddy Fruits & Veggies


If you are anything like I am as a mom, you are constantly trying to find new and creative ways to sneak extra veggies into your kiddo's diet.  I never thought I'd say it, but sometimes I miss the days when I could spoon whatever I wanted him to eat into his mouth and he wouldn't throw a fit.

Thankfully, I found these awesome pouches at the grocery store for a dollar a piece.  They are the perfect snack to throw in your bag for a car ride treat or give to your kid as a side to their meal.  They are 100% fruits and veggies, gluten free, and preservative free.  E tried the apple and spinach flavor and had it sucked down in 30 seconds flat.
