Friday Favorites

It's Friday!  This is the first week of our summer break that has actually felt like summer.  We've been so busy with all sort of stuff up until this point that I was getting worried our entire summer would pass us by.  I'm linking up with some of our favorite bloggers today and happily sharing my Friday Favorites from this week.

Last weekend I took a little trip to the coast of North Carolina for my cousin's wedding. I missed my people back at home, but loved getting to spend the weekend with my mom and catch up with my extended family over the weekend was a big favorite!  I think it might have been the first time I had been away alone since my kids were born! We went to the beach a few days and it was so nice to just sit, talk and relax. 

The wedding was the main event of the weekend and it was so much fun.  My mom and I both planned to wear pink, so we loved coordinating for the evening. 

Before I left for the wedding I got some new lip glosses to try out and I just love them.  They are NYX Butter Gloss and my new favorite glosses! I love the texture, the color and the price (only around $5 each!).

I got Sugar Cookie, Cupcake and Vanilla Cream Pie. :-)  They are all perfect summer pinks and sound just as yummy as they look! 

Also while on the wedding weekend getaway I had a chance tor read!!! Something I haven't had time to do in what feels like forever, but I got to read The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena that Jen gave me a few weeks ago and my mom recommended back at Easter.

My favorite books hook me from the first paragraph, keep me turning pages and wanting to know how the story ends. This was my kind of book.  I definitely recommend it for a quick and easy summer read.  

Earlier this week Jen and I got together to knock out a lot of things.  We have lots of blog projects in the works and we needed a day to get a bunch of things done.  We promised the kids if they were good while we worked we could head to the pool.  We kept our promise and this "work day" turned into our favorite kind of summer day.

The Middles 
The Mini-Magnolias had a blast splashing, swimming and soaking up the best kind of summer days.

The bookends...oldest and youngest. 
The wild ones...AKA the boys of the bunch. 

Speaking of a pool day, the kids and I made a run to Target yesterday and I did a quick pass through the women's department.  I tried on a few swimsuits and my eye was immediately drawn to these cover ups.

The tassels!!!  Oh my goodness!!!  Can you even?!

 I have seen similar coverups for WAY more expensive and the detailing on these are just SO cute.

This black one is under $20!!!! I went with a medium in this one for length.

This cranberry colored one is less than $25 and has sleeves.  I went with the small in this style. They are both shorter, but that is what I expect in a cover up and I just love them both!  I even snagged a new bikini that matches, too!

We hope you are all having wonderful summer.  Enjoy your family and you weekend and we'll see you back here next week!
