Friday’s Favorites : Vol 1

Hi friends!

Welcome to “Friday’s Favorites”, a new series we are launching with the hope that you get to learn more about the team behind AKP! Every Friday we’ll be sharing our new favorites for the week! The best part is that it isn’t limited to specific things. It could be a song, a fast food restaurant or even a color. This is a creative outlet is solely for fun and we are so excited for you to peek into our week and see what we are loving!


SO….without further ado, our first “Friday’s Favorites”


1. Chick-fil-a Spicy Chicken Deluxe – Y’all… I am not one for spice but my oh my, this sandwich is of the Lord. Living in southern Illinois, we don’t have a Chick-fil-a closer than an hour away… It’s TERRIBLE! Because, you know, Chick-fil-a isn’t something you always plan for…sometimes the craving just hits you out of nowhere. Usually that happens on a Sunday or, in my case, a day when you’re miles away. We are headed to visit family in Missouri this weekend and I’m hoping my husband reads this and takes me for dinner without me having to beg! 😉

2. Ball Caps – I’m guilty. Guilty of sleeping in just a TAD too long and needing to be somewhere that doesn’t allow me time to wash my hair… thanks to ball caps… and the dream invention of dry shampoo, I can whip up a messy bun that is mom chic and effortless…WINNING! Looking for a new hat? I love my black sporty ball cap!

3. Emily Ley’s January Playlist – Our organization bestie (okay, maybe just a bestie in our mind) puts out a monthly playlist on Spotify and this month’s has us ready to knock out 2019 goals and rock out during our lunch break! Wanna listen? Just search “Emily Ley” on Spotify!

4. Potty Training – We have hit the potty training trail HARD the last two weeks and to our surprise, Grayson has picked up on it extremely well! We love seeing him succeed and get excited when he’s gone potty. Though there are accidents the little look on his face is too cute to get upset about it. Potty training in our minds is just one step closer to talking baby #2! ahhhh!

5. Visiting Family – Like I mentioned above, we are headed to visit Matthew’s dad, brother, and grandparents this weekend. We don’t get to see them much but always enjoy the time we get together!


Well there you have it, 5 things we are loving this week! Check back in next week for Volume 2!

Friday's Favorites, Series

  1. I love this idea! So fun!

  2. Alex says:

    I love how clean this image is! YUM Chick fila is my favorite too! Although when we moved to Baltimore this summer we quickly realized it isn’t as easily accessible (Q all the sad emojis). Back in Richmond they were everywhere and I think I got a little spoiled. 🙂

  3. Liz says:

    This is such a great idea!! Also Chick-fil-a sandwiches are LIFE!

  4. Anna says:

    Love this idea! My husband and I eat Chick Fila before every wedding haha

  5. Lexi says:

    Chick Fil A is delish! Thanks for the tip on the Spotify playlist, I’m definitely going to give it a try!

  6. Janelle Goss says:

    I love this idea of the Friday Favorites! Chick-fil-a is wonderful and I’m so thankful to have them not too far from me 🙂 And I probably live in my black hat a little too much sometimes, but it does the job! And thanks for the tip on the playlist, I need to go check that out! 🙂
