Friday Favorites

A three day weekend is on it’s way…so that takes the cake for my number one favorite this week! Also, we only have four and half days of school left…which means I get to take a more serious (and closer) look at my Summer Bucket List! I cannot wait! There are definitely a lot of other goodies on my list this week though and I could really use your opinions!

Two.Last weekend we headed to VA to help Marian (Miss Mustard Seed) at Lucketts Spring Market. I felt so blessed to be able to go on this trip to experience all it had to offer. It is held at a fairgrounds with live music, yummy food vendors, and more than 200 Vintage Vendors on the East Coast. One of Marian’s readers offered their Bed and Breakfast (Zion Springs) to her and the people helping her out. It was SO gorgeous! I’m ready to go back in a heartbeat! It had beautiful land and the sweetest owners ever! Seriously, they are so gifted in hospitality. The breakfast and everything was top notch and I felt like I was in a little dream world staying there.

The entire weekend was so fun! Marian recapped her time here, here, and here! I also posted a few more pictures from the weekend, here!


The Mountain Between Us

Last week, I was talking to one of my student’s parents. She was telling me all about the author, Charles Martin and how much she loves him. She spoke so highly about his writing style and stories. I’m thinking of adding some of his books to my list for the summer. Has anyone read them?


Thursday was a rough day at work. I took one big sigh of relief when I hopped into the car on my way home because I was headed to get a massage. Lord knew I needed one! There you have number 4!


I debated whether to post about this because I couldn’t decide if I really should splurge and get one. I haven’t looked into Apple Watches a lot but I am looooving what I’m hearing and I really think I’m in store for a new watch. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m thinking it would be ideal to have before Italy since it serves so many purposes! My questions for you are:

1. What do you know about the product? Comment with the good, the bad, and the ugly.


2. Which style and color do you like best from below?

Happy Friday AND Memorial Day weekend everyone! ย xo

We are so close to summerย I can feel it! The pool is open, which means I am one happy girl! ๐Ÿ˜‰ We have a busy weekend! I hope you have a great weekend everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚


One of my best friends just had her baby! I can’t wait to snuggle little Caroline so soon! She’s beautiful!

Two.How cute are these chocolate bars for graduation or any gift?!


I have been doing this arm workout for a few years and love it. My sister and I both did this workout the other day (which was the perfect motivation since I took some time off). I thought I’d share it because it’s simple, works like a charm, and isn’t time consuming!

Friday’s are one of my favorite days and here are some of my favorite things this week. You know the drill…:)

One.My things I seem to accumulate from point A to Point B seem to be neverending these days. From school, to grocery shopping, Eric’s games, and so on, it’s nice to have my things all in one place. My Market Tote arrived from Urban Southernย last week and I have been using it ever since! It’s perfect for all the necessities and more. (I’m picturing filling it with goodies at Farmer’s Markets this summer too!) I also already plan on taking it on the plane ride this summer as my carry-on.Shirt/Bag

Use code: spring15 for 15% off your order at Urban Southern! They will last you foreeeeever and you won’t regret it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Two.My Mexican Double Chocolate Ice Cream. Another ice cream recipe is coming in the next few weeks. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Get ready!


My skin has been a little all over the place lately because…life happens??? I ordered Young Living’s Beauty Serum combined with FAB’s moisturizer. Life changing.


Sleeping in on Saturday morning!

Five.Last week I talked about some of my favorite baby shower books. I cannot believe I forgot this book! It’s so sweet and the books to follow are adorable as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Friday friends!

Friday, Friday, Friday!


I bought this shampoo about a month ago. I wasn’t crazy about it at first but the last few days I have loved it! Maybe it’s the change in season but it has made my hair so soft!


Drumroll please…these dresses are from Costco and I loooooove them! I bought the cream color and plan on getting the blue one next week! ๐Ÿ™‚ You can buy it here.

Three.My Summer Quinoa Salad!


I’m on the hunt for some books to read this summer. I read thisย one a few years ago and remember loving it. Has anyone read any books by this author or have any recommendations? I’m up for anything!


I’ve noticed a theme at a lot of baby showers lately. In leiu of bringing a card, the invite asks you to bring a baby book. I think it’s a really cute idea and have no idea why I haven’t shared some of my favorites before?! Here they are. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Friday everyone!
