the power

I was watching Gilmore Girls yesterday (just as any young female blogger should be doing) when Paris said, "Never underestimate the power of alliteration, my friend."

That Paris--she should have been a blogger. Does anyone else feel like you are killing it in blog land when you come up with a clever post that is centered on some kind of alliteration? 

I would like to take this moment to point out that while no, I did not coin the ever-so popular Friday Favorite phrase, I did choose to participate in said Friday Favorite posting today which means I chose alliteration which means I am powerful.

Or something (bonus points: I have Five Friday Favorites today). 

So let's move on to some favorites on this fine Friday. 

Favorite Thing That I Didn't Think Of But Wish I Had
This Instagram...

is the bee's knees. The tops. The everything that is wonderful. Who knew that dressing up a skeleton and making her be cliche could be so perfect? I wish I had known. Hats off to whoever created Skellie. I think you are one of the smartest and most clever people. 

Favorite Funny
I have this 3-year old student who draws pictures and brings one to me every Tuesday. It's her morning "work" as her mother calls it. It's kind of adorable. So one week this precious girl says, Miss Emily, I want to be just like you when I grow up. Awwww! Shucks. I don't tell her that dance teachers make diddly squat or that being around precious little girls like her all week is exhausting. Instead I smile and think "Yes! I'm making some kind of difference as a dance teacher." The next week the same student says, Miss Emily, when you die I am going to be you. 

I'm still processing that comment. 

Favorite Strawberry Snack
Every Valentine's Day since we started dating I've made Freddie some kind of dessert that has strawberries. I didn't intend for it to be a thing, but now it's totally a thing and so I scour Pinterest for a new and exciting strawberry-ish dessert. This year since we were away for V-day I had to find something that didn't need to be refrigerated. I should also mention that when I'm scouring looking for a strawberry-ish dessert, I'm also looking for one that is e-a-s-y. Because remember---I'm the woman who isn't in the kitchen. 
Say hello to the the ever-so easy and delicious Nutella strawberry cookies.

Favorite Flashback Freddie
obviously a necessary category...
moving on. 

Favorite Feeling 
When you make up the bed and it just looks so...great. Even on the sides, lined up, and perfectly fluffed pillows. Man, it makes my freaking day when that happens. Amiright or am I really right?

Happy Friday!
Don't freeze on this fabulously frigid Friday.
See? So powerful.
Linking up with Karli and Amanda (the bride!).

I am honestly not sure if I can handle the deliciousness of those strawberry/nutella cookies. I need that. Right now :) Good find!

Visiting from the link up! Strawberries & Nutella is always a winning combination! And there truly is no better feeling than making a perfect bed, it makes the whole room look put together and organized. Plus, crawling into it at the end of the day is divine! :)

Oh my word! I can just imagine Paris as a blogger. I think I would either love her blog or absolutely despise it. ;-)
