Friday Favorites-Summer Cocktail, Bachelorette Music, Cookie Monster on Waze

Aaaah weekend. Hello! So glad to see you. I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci for Friday Favorites and sharing what is bringing me Joy this week. 

1) Getting Back Our Weekends

It is finally that time of year when we have our weekends back. Being a hockey family takes a lot of time. Our season runs from September until March. That's a long time and then we headed right into lacrosse. We are finally at that point when we can have real weekends. Bring on the sleeping in a little bit and trips to the farmers market!

2) Jake Owen on The Bachelorette "Made for You"

I so love Jake Owen and have been able to see him live. I so loved this song he sang on The Bachelorette this week. Such a Good song!

3) Malibu and Berry Seltzer
I kind of love Malibu rum. There I said it. When we were in Hilton Head last year, the beach club made me a skinny colada every day at 3:00 p.m. which was Malibu, pineapple juice and seltzer water. This week I enjoyed a little Malibu and berry seltzer water which made it taste like a skinny strawberry colada. This might be my drink of the summer.

4) Denzel Washington Graduation Speech

This is the season of the graduation speech. The funny, the inspiring, the interesting. While it is not from this year, I heard parts of Denzel Washington's commencement speech from a new years ago and it really struck me. His main point..."Number One Put God First."

5) Cookie Monster on Waze

Did you know that you can now get Cookie Monster's voice on Waze? I changed my Waze voice over to Cookie this week and it is the Best! It literally makes me laugh every time I hear his voice in traffic. And that is Good because with the closing of several metro lines traffic has been a nightmare around here. Seriously check it out. 

That's a wrap for this week. Don't forget to follow me on Instagram or follow me on Twitter as I live tweet the Hallmark Channel. Hope you have a really Good weekend. 


  1. OMG I can't believe you made Cookie Monster your Waze voice- that is hysterical! Is it confusing or does it just keep you happy? I need to hear it- so funny! LOVE that line from Denzel's speech- Amen! Have a wonderful weekend friend!

  2. Cookie Monster on Waze makes me laugh. He gives very clear alerts...and then says something funny. You need to try it.


  3. Aww I love Cookie Monster’s voice and Malibu Rum and Jake Owen lol. Fun Favorites and happy Friday! XO

  4. I definitely have to try that skinny colada! I'm headed to DC next weekend, any restaurant suggestions (or things to avoid)? We're staying in the Crystal Gateway area. Glad you can enjoy more relaxed weekends now, we were a hockey family too (two players and one coach) so I totally know what you mean!

  5. Lisa, email me directly at I would love to help you with your DC trip! I know the Crystal City area well!


    1. Hi Patty, I sent you an email on Sunday but thought I had better let you know here in case it gets filtered as spam. Thanks!

    2. Hi Lisa--just sent you an email back. It was our last week of school so time got a little bit away from me.

  6. What a hoot having Cookie Monsters voice. I imagine that would lighten your mood in traffic. AHHHH, I'm so happy to know you're watching the Bachelorette too. Who's your fave? I'm thinking Peter! The first night I like Luke P, but he and Luke S need to GO!!! Have a great weekend!

    1. I just CANNOT with the Lukes! I like Peter, but I also like Tyler C the dancing contractor. Whew he is dreamy. I think she may pick one of them and the other one she doesn't pick will be the Bachelor. Hockey Guy is a fan of Mike.

      Happy weekend Lisa!

  7. I've always loved Jake Owen so I was super excited to see him perform last week! Such a great song!
