Friday Favorites #145

Happy Friday Foxy Friends! Back for another year of Friday Favorites, I can't believe that I have done 145 of these...crazy pants. Anyway, I thought I would share a little more of what we have been up to lately, since Tuesday's post was sort of a a drive by.

In case you missed it this week, here's what you missed:

Tuesday: Happy New Year and What We've Been Up To
Wednesday: Little Black Dress
Thursday: Sentence A Day

Since I sort of fell off the face of the earth earlier, I figured I would do a little look back on the blog, since that clearly didn't happen at the end of the year like I had hoped. Let's recap the top 5 posts from 2017.

1.  Funny enough my top viewed post is from 2016, it's my How to French Braid your own hair. I did a video on it too, that is also my most viewed video at 59K views.

French Braid My Hair

2. This is also a post dating back to 2012! It's how to make Clothes Pins Reindeers, so cute, and I use them to hold all of my Christmas cards on a ribbon.

3. Hey this one was actually written this year! This post was about how to be a better spouse.

4. My next one was also one from last year, it was my post on how to train your hair to go 3-5 days between washings. Trust me, coming from someone who HAD to wash her hair can be done, and now I usually wash it when I can't remember the last time I washed it.

5. Hey another one from this year, haha. This one is how to balance work/life balance. So important to keep in mind as we start the new year.

We took the kids to Disney on Ice, if you haven't been yet, you HAVE to take your kids. Mr. and I didn't have high expectations, but it exceeded it plus some! So dang good! As soon as it was over, Baby Fox said, can we go again?! I consider that a major win!

As you know Christmas day is Baby Fox's birthday, we never want him to feel cheated, so we go above and beyond on the day for his birthday.

I usually make some sort of crazy cake, this year I did this one, although it didn't quite turn out like I thought it would, it was still fun to make and Baby Fox loved it.

And what birthday party would be complete without a balloon drop (affiliate). You guys, you HAVE to get one! It's so much freakin' fun! Plus if you get this thing (affiliate)...fill up all those balloon in minutes. Totally worth it!

Happy 7th Birthday Baby Fox.

And something super exciting to tell you! The Blended Blog is hosting a Spread the Love gift exchange! Super fun right? Who doesn't like to get some mail? Meet new friends and join in on the fun! Follow this link to participate, you have until January 17th to join.

Speaking of recap, I love the yearly recap songs people do. Some of them are just so creative.

Sam always has good one take videos, this backwards recap one, SOO good. So does that mean he has to "sing" the words backwards so that when they rewind it looks forward? does he do that?!

Love their take on the top hits from 2017, one sang all the top guys and the other all the top girl songs, so unique and they did a great job!

I discovered these guys when I went to the Pentatonix concert, they were their opening act. I love them and they have been doing these for a while. This year didn't disappoint either.

Linking up here
