Friday Favorites

It's Fri-day!


I'm linking up with AndreaNarci and Erika today and sharing my favorite things from the week.

So, my back to school Pottery Barn Kids catalog came in the mail this week...and I immediately texted Andrea so that we could have a moment together.  Listen, it might have been 101 degrees when I walked to the mailbox and pulled this baby out, but as soon as I saw the cover, it felt 40 degrees cooler.

Speaking of me having a moment...

I am obsessed with this silk shirt.  It comes in 9 different colors and I'm in love... 

...true love.

You can see all 9 colors here.

Well, I'm not even going to pretend that this doesn't make me happy...

...Fuller House (yeah, a spin off on Full House) just began filming.  I follow Candace Cameron Bure on Instagram and loved this picture :).  I'm a child of the 80s and 90s...I'm totally excited to watch this.


And did you know that Monday is National Watermelon Day?  Well in honor of such an important date (ha!), I thought we should celebrate with a watermelon weekend... should make my Watermelon Cupcakes :).

Have the best weekend!

I'll see you guys on Monday with my August Goals!

Life Lately.

Happy happy Thursday!

 It's like pre-Friday, right?  It's pretty much Friday.  It's basically Saturday.  Enjoy :).

Andrea got the girlies matching swimsuits.  I cute are they in their monograms?!?!

 We're hot, we dirty, some of us are in our pajamas (because after swimming, they love to put on their pjs), we're up past our bedtime and we're at the snow cone place. 'Tis summer!

The night before our sweet girl's MRI.  She wasn't allowed to eat after 10:00 PM and wouldn't be able to eat again until 6:00 PM the next day (it was actually closer to 8 because she didn't feel great and was nauseous).  We let her stay up late and eat scrambled eggs and watch Mickey Mouse.

About ready for her MRI.  Ashby loves her daddy :).

 Andrew was giving me a hard time for over packing for her MRI.  Hello?  We were there alllll day long!  I'm like a Boy Scout...I try to always be prepared!

The day after her MRI, she woke up happy and back to her cheery self!  We headed out to have a fun Friday!

We watched a movie and had popcorn on Friday night.  The movie looks intense, right?  #itwasn't

Saturday morning baking!

My best accessory at the grocery was on the end of my cart. :)

Sunday before church.  Love these three so much!!

I'll tell you...these two find each other in the night like magnets!  We put them in their own beds and yet, they end up together often.  I enjoyed the sweet moment...because I knew the minute they were up, it would be a lot of "Smith is touching me" and "Kensington keeps looking at me".  Siblings. 

Pool days are my favorite days!!  This just never gets old :).


Kensington was super pumped to receive this in the mail this week!  After your suggestions, we ended up donating Kensington's hair to Pantene.  She was beyond thrilled when they sent her a letter this week thanking her for the donation.  How cool is that?!  

Well...that's life lately.  I hope you have a great Thursday!!

If you're looking for something yummy and easy to make in the kitchen this weekend... Banana Cream Pie is a winner!  The crust is made of Nilla Wafers, so it basically tastes just like banana pudding.  So good!!

What's Up Wedneday {07/29/15}

Hello there Wednesday!

Woohoo!  It's What's Up Wedneday with my girls Mel and Sheaffer!  

The last Wednesday of every month, we answer these questions... our What's Up Wednesday posts.  We can't wait to go through your posts and see what you guys are up to this month too!  I cannot believe it's almost August!  Where has our summer gone???  I'm not ready for it to be over (insert me sobbing here).  I have had the best summer at home with my kiddos and as much as I love, love, love fall, I'm not ready to send my kids back to school.

Okay...enough of my pity party...let's see what's up...

1. What we're eating this week...
My Meal Planning Monday was dedicated to all things from the grill this week (shrimp, burgers, pizza, and more!).  I love grilling dinner during the summer and then eating on the that's what's for dinner this week!

2. What I'm reminiscing About...
It's hard to believe that it's been a year...and that in a month, this girl will be in first grade and Smith will be in kindergarten!  That quote that says "the days are long but the years are short"...yeah, so true.

3. What I'm loving...
Okay...before the Anniversay Sale ends, you have to get yourself and maybe even the girls in your life these pajamas :).  They are the softest and lightest pjs and I seriously cannot stop wearing them (I even bought me a second pair!).  These jammies would make excellent Christmas gifts!!  They're only on sale until Sunday night!!

4. What we've been up to...
A whole lot of this.  It's so stinkin' hot outside that if you're not in the A/C, you better be in the pool.

5. What I'm dreading...

Speaking of the weather...I'm kind of dreading the fact that our 10 day forecast looks a little warm. We've had an extremely mild summer for us...but still, it's hot, hot, hot!

6. What I'm working on...
I need to clean out our play room.  I cleaned it out right before the end of school...but now that my kiddos have been home all summer, it's kind of a disaster.  I'm going to wait until the first week of school and then I'm going to purge it like a crazy woman.  This quote always makes me laugh...

...because it's so true.

7. What I'm excited about... bummed as I am about my kiddos heading back to school and glorious summer being over...we get to end one wonderful season and head straight into another.

Pumpkins are out at Hobby Lobby friends, fall is coming ;).

8. What I'm watching/reading...
Andrew and I just started watching True Detective.  I'm not sure if I have an opinion about it yet or not.  It's one of those shows that at this point, I can't tell if I'm going to love it or hate it.  Have you guys watched it???  I'm on the fence...amazing acting, but I'm not sure if it's going to be my cup of tea or not.

9. What I'm listening to...
I've been turning The Beach Boys on outside by the pool.  I feel like good parenting is when your kids know the lyrics to Kokomo...

10. What I'm wearing...
Well, I haven't left the house in this stuff yet...but I'm anxious for the weather to cool down (see #5 above about what I'm dreading...) so that I can wear my new finds for fall...

To see all of my favorite finds from the Anniversary Sale, click here.

11. What I'm doing this weekend...
Spending time with these people :).

12. What I'm looking forward to next month...
It's our last month of summer!!  Eeks!  I need to make the most of every day!  We need to sleep in, stay up late, swim, swim, swim, and soak up every precious minute!

13. What else is new...
Not a whole lot :)

14. What will you miss most about summer?
Spending all day with my kids!!  Without a doubt!  I love having my kiddos around and I'm going to miss the two big ones so much when they're at school all day.

That's our What's Up Wednesday!  I can't wait to look through the link ups to see what's up with you!  Happy Wednesday friends!

On my foodie blog today...

...a Cozy Summer Supper.
