Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! We’ve had a great, but extremely busy week this week, hence being short on posts. I hope that you’re just as excited to see Friday here as I am! Do you have big plans for the weekend? With only a few more weeks of “summer” left, we’re planning on doing more “summer stuff” with the little ones. I still can’t believe school starts soon! This Summer has flown by for us, how about you?

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites” for you!

This quote. So true.

I have a much needed hair appointment tomorrow, and it’s seriously like therapy to me! Does anyone else feel this way?

I picked this wine up at Target on a whim, and I’m glad that I did. My husband & I loved it on our “patio dates” this week. It’s the perfect Summer wine.

The farmer’s market produce is SO much better than the grocery stores! We’ve been enjoying ours all week long. What’s your favorite place to buy produce? I can’t wait to go back this weekend, and I love supporting our local farmers.




UGG Cozy Lounge Poncho

UGG Poncho
Maybe it’s because Summer is coming to a close, and I’m really starting to crave Fall, but this poncho looks so perfect for Fall/Winter, school drop-off, tailgating, errands & playing in the backyard with the kids. It comes in 3 colors, too.

Have a happy weekend!

Friday Favorites!

T.G.I.F. Friends! I hope your week has been a great one!

I’m really ready for some cooler, crisp Fall days. I cannot wait until Fall arrives! Last night, we talked about heading to the mountains with our littles this weekend to try & escape this heat! We might just do that, and I can’t wait!

During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (And, it’s still going strong!) I ordered these heels, and they are even more gorgeous in person. I loved them so much, I ordered them in two colors, midnight & slate suede. Classic move by me. If I find something I love this much, I always order it in more than one color. No regrets here.

I was at The Fresh Market last night picking up a few things, and I decided to change up my lunch routine. This week I’m making roasted chicken salad lettuce wraps. If you’re short on time, The Fresh Market has THE BEST roasted chicken salad.

For a manicure, I normally wear OPI “bubble bath” all.of.the.time., but lately I’ve wanted a classic red. Either way, essie “5th Avenue” is my next go-to manicure color. What’s your favorite?

Friday Favorites!

We’re looking forward to a low key weekend around the house, after a busy, but fun holiday weekend last week. What are y’all up to this weekend?

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites” for you! Enjoy!

Soap, I know, it’s not that exciting, but this soap is amazing enough to talk about. I’m constantly washing my hands (who isn’t?), but every soap that I’ve tried in the past, tends to dry my hands out. This one doesn’t. And, it smells heavenly (even my best friend commented about how good it smelled last time she was visiting)! It’s that good! I’m getting ready to order more on amazon for every bathroom in our house!

This book is really good. I have to thank Natalie for recommending it in one of her posts. I read one page every morning before I get out of bed, and it really helps reset your mind for the day. I tend to let the silliest things bother me (things that are completely out of my control), so it helps stop it. If this sounds like you, grab a copy today!

This top is so darn cute.

I need a new iPhone case, and this one might be the winner!! All of Evelyn Henson art is stunning, so pretty & happy! I want to fill my entire house with her work.

I love coffee table books. Do you? I have a few that I’m eyeing right now, but I just ordered this one with some birthday gift card money! Thanks, Jay! (my brother!)

Have a great weekend, Friends!

T.G.I.F! How was your week?
This week flew by, and I’m not complaining one bit. We’ve had a bit of a cool front come through, which also has been nice for playing outside!

Below are some “Friday Favorites” for you!

Plus – Plus 300 Piece Neon Assortment

Plus Plus toy
I discovered these from Natalie’s blog (love her blog!) and you can get them from Amazon (linked above). Our oldest LOVES “building” every day with these, and it’s really neat to watch what he creates with them. It’s such a great activity for kids, especially for rainy days.

I’m working on some gift ideas for Father’s Day for my husband & Dad this weekend! We’ll have a brunch/dinner next weekend to celebrate. I also know my husband wants to play a round of golf, which he’ll probably do as well! This image above from Etsy would be cute to print & frame for my husband’s office!

Ballard Designs Nala Stool


I’m thinking about adding these stools (two) to our living room/foyer. I love the custom fabrics Ballard Designs offers, and these would give us a few extra seats when we’re entertaining. I could keep them in the foyer on either side of a buffet that was passed down to me.

I’m quite excited, as I get to have lunch with my parents and my brother. My brother lives out of town, and he’s coming here for a business meeting today. I used to meet my Dad all of the time while I was still working for lunches. I don’t get to sneak out as often due to nap times, feeding times, etc., so when I do it’s a real treat. I’m also looking forward to the Fish & Chips that I plan on ordering with a glass of sweat tea! Calories don’t count on the weekends for me!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday!! We have a fun, little birthday party to head to tomorrow afternoon, and we’re planning on doing a few fun things around the house this weekend. What are your plans for the weekend?

My Mom is a “Master Gardner,” no really, she took a test to become one, and her knowledge is amazing! She can even recite the latin names of every plant. I want her to write a blog! She loves gardening, and helps us with all of our plant choices.  And, I think I’m starting to become a gardener like her, but I’ve got a long way to go. She gave us these “Wedding Gown Hydrangeas” a few years ago, and I have kept them alive, and finally planted them a month ago. They make me so happy. I love going in the backyard and looking at them daily, and the best part is, she told me yesterday that they’ll bloom until September!


It’s time to dust off the old tennis shoes, and get back to walking. I’ve changed what I eat drastically; however, I still want to tone up. I’ve been eyeing these new tennis shoes at J.Crew as a potential motivator!;)

These shorts are perfect for the Summer time. I used to never wear shorts, but with two kiddos in the heat, jeans get pretty hot while playing. I really like the fact that they’re 4-inches in length, as I’m 5’10, and almost 35 years old, so no short shorts allowed here. Who’s with me?

I fell in love with these topiaries at Kirkland’s this past weekend! If you add a coupon (and you earn rewards every time you shop there) it’s not that bad of a price. I have one on my kitchen counter, and one in our dining room. It adds just enough “green” to our rooms, and it makes me happy when I’m doing the dreaded dishes! Ha!  Kirkland’s is one of my favorite go-to places for decorating. I also love shopping consignments, and of course HomeGoods!

This is our favorite Summer wine! It’s the best Chardonnay in our opinion, and it’s an incredibly reasonable price. It’s a very light and buttery Chardonnay. You should definitely try it! Cheers!

 Have a happy weekend!
