friday favorites: the one with the chocolate food baby

Yadda yadda talky talky insert interesting opening paragraph here.
Was it interesting? Good. 

Favorite Song
Johnny Cash Jackson cover by Carolina Chocolate Drops
I guess I should correctly title this Favorite VIDEO because you can't NOT watch this video when listening to the song (sorry, father, for that there double negative). Freddie had me get out of bed the other night to watch it and let's just say hashtag worth it

Favorite Recipe
In keeping with our Bond movie/date night/cooking extravaganza marathon we Freddie made paleo chicken fingers with a golden slaw. What the bleep is golden slaw? you ask. Golden slaw is a fancy way of saying we threw everything that was of the orange and yellow color family into a giant bowl, added some homemade mayo and vinegar, and stirred it up. The end. Oh and obviously the movie on deck this week was Goldfinger. Oh and obviously we I cracked five million too many jokes about the character names Oddjob and Pussy Galore. 

Favorite Pilates Move
Single Leg Stretch
Pilates single leg stretch
Nothing like a terrible, morning light, blurry GIF to get your morning going. Wink. 
Since this is the month of eating way too much chocolate love, I figured we would spend the four weeks in February focusing on abdominals/how to tighten them when your chocolate food baby is full term. Pro-tips: keep your tailbone heavy during this move (a.k.a. do NOT imprint your lower back onto the floor). Draw in your abdominals as if you were wearing a corset. This connection will protect your lower back. Breathe. 

Favorite Picture (for the next five seconds)
My sister finally sent over pictures she took of our big fam-a-dam Christmas 2015. I say finally because it only took me asking/begging her three times a day since December 26 for her to send them to me. That's an exaggeration---it was probably only three times every other day. Anyways, this one is the winner, winner, Christmas dinner. 

Favorite Picture (now that those five seconds are over)
Okay, okaaaaaaaay. You caught me.  I have two favorites. 

Happy Friday!
Linking up with Karli and Amanda. Duh.
