Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Ladies!
 I am happy today for sure because I will be waking up to the sound of the ocean!
Today I am linking up with Andrea , Erika , and Narci for Friday Favorites.  Be sure to grab the graphic and link up too!

Waking up to this view for the next few days is definitely going to be a favorite of mine for sure!
The boys set up their tent in the playroom this week, and the 3 littles have been sleeping in there the past few nights.  I absolutely love how great Jack and AJ are with Olivia...she is so lucky to have such sweet brothers.  Sweet sleeping kiddos...always a favorite of mine!
Before the tent got set up, Olivia was in serious conversation with Mark about making her a fort in the boys room.

Happy girl to have a fort between her brother's bed! 
Social media and blogging has allowed me to meet some pretty amazing women, and even though most of them I haven't "met in real life", I do consider them friends.  Shelly is one of those that I consider a friend I've made from this crazy, awesome blogging world.  You guys need to head over and read her blog.  As most of you know by now, baseball is pretty much AJ's life...he eats, sleeps and breathes it.  He is constantly watching it on TV if he isn't out playing it. Well Shelly's son Riley, just got drafted by the Houston Astros, and AJ has been following Riley, watching him on TV...he thought it was super cool that I "knew" his mom.  Well Shelly was sweet enough to send AJ an autographed baseball card, and well let's just say my little guys summer was made!
He was just so excited to have this...I am so thankful that my little boy has such awesome role models like Riley, to look up to.  Having the opportunity to meet the sweetest people is definitely a favorite of mine!
Ok so you guys already know that Starbucks is a big favorite of mine...well this new "order" feature on the app is just down right fabulous!  The Starbucks by me is always crowded, it has a drive-thru and most of the time the line is ridiculous, and going inside isn't much better!  Well now I love that I can order the drink while I am driving there, walk in, and my drink is waiting for me on the counter...I mean seriously this is pretty much the greatest convenience ever of all time!  This is absolutely a favorite of mine!
I picked up this necklace the other day and I am loving it!  I am loving the white, and it's on sale which makes me love it even more! 
I let the boys pack all their own stuff for their two week trip to see their dad.  I can't guarantee that AJ packed enough clothes, there is a good possibility he has one pair of shorts and 12 shirts in his suitcase, however he has his arsenal of airsoft guns ready to go!  Their excitement about getting to spend some time with their dad is definitely a favorite of mine!
I mean is this not the absolute cutest little birth announcement ever.  Cory is also another awesome woman I met through the blogging guys need to check her out!  I am so super excited for her and her family as they get ready to welcome TWINS!  Friends having babies is always a favorite of mine!
Probably my most favorite this week, is knowing that I am getting to spend a few days at the beach with my hubby!  With 5 kids and a super busy life, our time alone together is far and few between...we are both so excited to have this time together.  My husband...always always always my favorite!
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!  See you back here Monday for our weekend wrap-up!
