Friday Favorites

Hooray for Friday!  We have a super busy weekend ahead, but I'm always up for a weekend, no matter how busy so I'll take it.  Today I'm linking up with some of our favorite bloggers to share my Friday Favorites for the week.




I have some foot issues that cause a lot of pain from time to time. I haven't been to the doctor, but I am pretty sure it's plantar facetious possibly combined with something else.  I generally live in flip flops all summer long and I know that probably doesn't help.  Often if I wear very flat shoes with no arch support the next day it is so painful for me to walk, especially first thing in the morning.  A few weeks ago I was having more pain than normal and we happened to be walking through Target when I spotted these sandals. I tried them on and, oh my goodness, they were SO comfortable.  I wore them pretty much every day for the next week and you know what?  The pain in my foot gradually went away as the week went on. I just know it's because these are molded to my feet and offer arch support unlike flip-flops or other sandals do.  


They are now officially my favorite shoes! I wore these in the airport on the way to Montana last week and that was a real test because you know  how much walking you do in the airport.  The other bonus is that every single time I wear them I get multiple compliments!  Everyone wants to know where I got them and they are shocked to learn they are less than $25 from Target!  They come in several colors, but I loved the fun metallic gold color that literally match everything. 

Now that I know I love these I am leaning towards purchasing these Birkenstocks in black patent leather that a friend of mine has, but I can't quite pull the trigger because these Target ones are serving me well for the time being.  


A few weeks ago I bought both of my girls book lights for when they read at night and I decided I needed one for myself also!  Sometimes I read books on the Nook app on my phone, but often I also read real books and don't want to keep the Mr. up at night.  Well, the first time he saw me using it was on the plane last week and he literally laughed out loud and took my picture because he thought I was such a dork.  Ha!  Well the tables turned when he tried to read and couldn't see because our window wouldn't stay up.  I offered him my book light and he just laughed.  It is definitely my favorite little accessory for reading and traveling! 



Any other Descendants fans out there?  My kids and I loved the first one and were so excited when Descendants 2 came out a few weeks ago.  They watched it over and over and started singing the songs non-stop so I downloaded the soundtrack and now it is our favorite thing to listen to!  We're always singing it, listening to it in the car and dancing any chance we get!  



We love books and new books make it more fun to read, right?!  Over the summer I discovered the store Half Price Books and it is now our favorite place to go for books!  They sell used books for deeply discounted prices and you can resell your old books (although I don't think what they give you for it is worth it).  We had a little extra time to spare between practices earlier this week so we popped in and we got a couple of books for only $5!  It made the kids excited about reading and made our reading home work time a little less painful so that is a win in my book!   

Last but not least this week is a favorite moment I had.  My little guy is a HUGE baseball fan. He loves to play it, he loves to practice it, and he loves to watch it. He pretty much would eat, sleep and breath baseball if he could. 


We had a rare afternoon at home yesterday and he wanted me to see if there were any baseball games on TV that he could watch.  We found the Little League World Series and he was glued to the TV! He was fascinated by the fact that these were kids and not grown ups and watched their every move. 


His interest and excitement was infections and it made me drawn to the game also. We sat and watched baseball together when I could have been doing a ton of other things around the house.  However, hanging out together, talking about plays and watching what he loves was probably my favorite moment from my week! 


I hope everyone has a great weekend!  We'll see you back here on Monday!
