Favorite Things Thursday + tattoo

Alright, alright. I know I have been a complete slacker her on my site. Sorry peeps. I have reasons.

First I was off drinking in Key West(kidless). I say “drinking” because, well, that’s just what you do there. Gives your liver a good workout. Also, while in Key West, I got my super cute Whisk tattoo on my foot. It’s my 3rd tattoo. I normally get my tattoos on hidden places, sun and moon on my lower side stomach and a four leaf clover on my lower side/back.
I had been contemplating and contemplating on what tattoo to get. I either wanted a cupcake tattoo on my wrist or a whisk on the foot. I obviously went with the whisk. I thought it was more original.

And it hurt like a MO-FO. You should have seen the sweat literally pouring off me. My sister could could barley watch.
But it’s done and I survived and I LOVE IT!


Whisk tattoo

Well, when I got back from the Keys, I decided I was going to have my annual “I don’t want to blog anymore” mental breakdown. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you might remember the below photo. Yep, I seem to go through this yearly. Having a blog for over 4 years gets to you sometimes, especially now that the end of the school year is here…I am just spent.


Alright, enough rambling…onto my favorite things.

We all have those nights, where dinner just can’t happen. With my son in baseball, it is sometime EXTREMELY difficult to cook dinner and have everyone eat before a 5:30 game.

I have always been a fan of Perdue chicken nuggets. they are the best of the prepackage nuggets out there. Then they came out with their Simply Smart line. These are really good people. Very lightly breaded, not greasy and they actually have real meat..not processed and ground up chicken…real chicken pieces.

They have 65% less breading, 40% fewer calories, 50% less fat, no preservatives OR fillers and made with ONLY white meat chicken.

***Remember, Favorite Things Thursday ARE NOT sponsored posts, just things I LOVE!***

    I love the artwork! Making me want to go get another piece done 🙂 I agree about the baseball meal issues, just last night I had the same prob and ended up at Costco buying pizza and salad. The nuggets sound awesome..

    LOVE the tattoo! Glad you are back! Totally get the “I don’t want to blog anymore” feeling and I have only been doing it a little while! As always, love the FTT posts. I like to stay as much away form processed food as I can for my little one, but that often means LOTS of work. These sound great! Can’t wait to try them! Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

    Cute tattoo!! I don’t have any, but my hubby has 2. Funny thing…they are so much a part of him that I don’t even notice them anymore. 🙂 I totally get the no blogging thing…..as much as I love blogging and my blog, there are times you just want to live life….LOL!

    Glad to see you back in blogland…..

    Love the tattoo! So cute and fitting for you! Hopefully you’ll get your blogging mojo back but if you need time off that’s ok too. Blogging is a lot of work and sometimes a blogging break is good creatively!

    I already have one tattoo and my husband just told me that he wants one for his birthday. Now I want another on because yours is so stinking cute. My wheels are turnin’ now!

    I love the tattoo. It is so cute. The nuggets are a quick and nutritious way to get dinner on the table and who doesn’t love nuggets with the sauce of your choice?

    I went with my friend to get a tattoo a few years ago, she got 3 butterflies on her foot and she balled like a baby the entire time. I guess feet are just really sensitive areas. I love the whisk – very original.

    I’ve said that if I ever could actually commit to a tattoo, it would have to be a whisk – since a KA Mixer is not all that awesome for a tattoo! Love that you got this – so adorable! I am just a huge wimp, so I’ll never follow through.
