Friday Favorites

Hello Ladies!

Hope you all had a great week!  We have now been out of school for 2 weeks and it is glorious!  We are loving our lazy days!

Today I am linking up with AndreaErika , and Narci and sharing my Friday sure to grab the graphic and link up too!

Olivia is a big kid now...each day I see less and less little girl and more and more "big kid"...and I love watching her grow up and change but the time has just flown by with her.  Every now and again I catch little glimpses, like this of her sleeping on the couch, that remind me she is still my little girl!  She is always my favorite!

Every day since school has been out she drags her bean bag chair and desk chair out into the kitchen and watches videos on her iPad...rough life for a 9 year old:)

It is no secret how much I love my Volcano candle from Anthro...I have talked about my love for them lots of times on here.  I don't have an Anthro close to my house, so I usually wind up ordering my candles, and their shipping is HIGH and I hate paying so much for shipping.  Well...I have ordered a few of the Volcano scent candles from Amazon, and they are pretty much identical.  The price is about the same as Anthro, so no savings there, but the free two day shipping makes me HAPPY!  I just got this pink volcano candle last week for our office, and I love it!  It smells great, and the pink jar is all sorts of fabulous.  If you love Antrho candles, check out Amazon and grab one!

Mark had some free time at work last week, and sketched this picture of some trees...I thought it was pretty good!  He brought it home for me with a sweet little note in the corner, so I decided to put it in a frame and put it on my desk.  Anything handmade from someone who is special to me is always a favorite!

This isn't the best picture...but I grabbed this chair for the boys room and I really like it.  They had been taking Olivia's bean bag chair to sit in while they played their video games, so when I saw this on Amazon, I ordered it right away.  It is sort of like a bean bag chair, but much more sturdy...the boys love it!  


I got this necklace a few months ago, and it has been my favorite everyday!  Being a stay at home mom, who pretty much stays home during the day, I don't really "get dressed" a lot during the week, and I rarely wear any of the fun, statement necklaces that I have.  I have pretty much worn this necklace every single day for the last 3 months or so.  It is simple and perfect for everyday!  Anything that I can get a ton of use out of is always a favorite for me!

Fun, colorful pool floats are our favorite. We get all our floats from Amazon, inexpensive and super fun!

Not sure what we have going on this weekend....we have had tons of rain this week (which we desperately needed), so I am hoping for a nice weekend and lots of pool time with my people!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  See you back here next week!



  1. My kids took the first two weeks to chill....I think they so need that downtime when school is out. This week is back to the grind and it will be nonstop until school starts again. Hope you are having a super weekend!

  2. I love the sketch. It is beautiful. I also love that necklace! How cute of her to pull out her chair to watch her ipad on.
