Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!!!  Even though it is summer, I still live for the weekends when our schedules are a little more relaxed and we aren't quite as on-the-go.  This weekend we're celebrating my favorite little guy's birthday, so it will be a fun and exciting weekend.



Today, like most Fridays, I'm linking up with some of our favorite bloggers to share our Friday Favorites!






A few weeks ago I got an Apple watch and I'm loving it. I'd been wanting one for a while, but wasn't sure if I wanted to commit and buy one because I wasn't sure how I would like it.  Well, the Mr. ended up winning one at a golf tournament so when he texted me to ask if I'd like one (because he already had one) I jumped at the chance!  


I'm still figuring it out and I'm sure there are so many more things I have to learn about it, but so far it's been fun. I love receiving texts on it if I don't have my phone near me and I also like the fitness tracking part of it so far! 

On Monday I shared about our houseboat trip and also these cute tanks I found.  I've had so many questions about them and both my girls and I can't stop wearing them so they are definitely a favorite this week.

These girls tanks are so cute (only $6!!!) and so appropriate for summer.  Sadly, our kids start back to school in just two short weeks and we are all digging in our heels.  We'd love to stay on summer vacay for a little while longer! 

I'm still wearing my favorite Target tanks over and over.  They are so soft, super cute with the peplum  ruffle it adds a little bit of something extra.  Plus, they are under $15!  



We've been doing some major projects at our house including our basement that is almost done and a big yard project.  When we bought our house, part of the appeal was the property. It has a small creek running through it and while we loved the water and all of the privacy, it felt like a jungle.  The landscaping is happening in two phases, but the first phase is done including the removal of trees and a creek restoration.  

Before:

There was a small foot bridge in place, but since we first moved in I dreamt of a nice bridge with sides.  I pictured my kids running across it as they head to the other side of our yard.  While we were on vacation the Mr. surprised me with a bridge with sides!  I was so surprised because he kept it a total secret, but it made me so happy and it is definitely my favorite part of our landscaping right now.  

After: 

This week my sweet Blondie has been on a week long beach vacation with a friend.  She was so excited to go, but the first part of the week was rough.  She kept FaceTiming me crying because she was so homesick.  It broke my heart, but I knew she would be fine because they had so many fun things planned.  Well, as the week has gone on she's gotten into her groove and is having so much fun. My favorite texts this week are of her sweet, smiling, happy face!  So much better than her tears! 

Last weekend we got a lot of things done around the house including hanging more artwork to the art gallery wall in our playroom.  I'd had some pieces framed and sitting on my dining room table to hang for months!  This wall is one of my very favorite spaces in my home.  My kids get so proud to see their art work displayed (some dating back to their first day of preschool!) and it is so much better than having them all just sit in a closet.  Plus, it's the perfect way to fill a big, blank wall! 


Last, but not least this week are my new magnolia wreaths!  I'm totally in love with them and can't get enough. Be sure to check back next week because I'll be sharing the tutorial because these beauties were a DIY!

  1. Aw, I love that artwork gallery. Such a cute way to display your kid's art! I'm glad your daughter is having a much better time. It takes a bit to adjust.

    I'm LOVING your Hello Sunshine shirt. I really like the bottom and how it flares out.
