Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I cannot believe that next weekend is already the fourth of July! We have been in full blown summer fun mode over here, lots of home projects (see my last post), and having fun at the lake with friends. I realized it has been forever since I’ve done a Friday favorites post & had a handful of things bookmarked to share with you, so let’s goooo!

If you have kids, and especially if your kids have friends over or you are hosting a lot in the summer, you need these cups in your life!!! They come in two colorways, and if you grab them both, you can mix and match for so many fun combinations! They are so great because 1. lids and straws!!! and 2. kids will remember which cup is theirs!!

I have been livvvvving in these joggers, love them so much I bought a second pair.

My favorite clean, organic self tanner (and sunscreen!), a summer must have!!

Lots of you asked about my swimsuit on Instagram the other day, it is currently 40% off!! These are the high waisted bottoms and this is the ruffle top!! It runs true to size & is always my go-to swim pick!!!!

The s’mores cookie recipe that I butchered. They were still good, and I’m sure you’ll do a better job!

Need some new Summer entertainment for your kiddos? A few current faves: this watermelon slip n slide, classic hippity-hops (fun to do outside in the grass through the sprinkler!), and my girls all time favorite, loom bracelets!!

Sort of ironic given the state of the world right now, but I love love love this doormat and it’s on sale right now.

Need some 4th of July entertaining ideas, find them here!!

Happy weekend, friends!! XO


Let’s Stay Home // Favorite Things

How is everyone doing? Just as it seems we are getting used to this laid back lifestyle of staying home, it seems like there may be a light at the end of the tunnel, business are starting to open back up and good news is spreading like wildfire. Can you tell that I’m an eternal optimist over here?

Meanwhile, as we continue to stay home and live our best homebody lives, I thought I would put together a handful of my favorite things for staying at home, because we all need a super cozy Let’s Stay Home sweatshirt & a good faux tan right?

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven

A few more things we are loving:

+ Sleeping in and slow mornings consisting of dinkytown and french toast.

+ A daily family workout (even if it is just walking to the local coffee shop or a quick online yoga class).

+ Having low expectations and even lower standards. Added stress or pressure is not welcome here.

+ Grade level workbooks for the kids on days that logging on their distance learning feels like too much work.

+ Afternoon cold brews with cold foam (we use skim milk or heavy whipping cream in the individual serve setting on this blender).

+ Movie nights way too often (current favorites are The Parent Trap, Honey I Shrunk The Kids & Evan Almighty).

+ Game nights: Uno, Spoons or Rack-O.

+ Writing down three things we are grateful for each day.

+ Our wine subscription. Clean wine, no added sugar or sulfites, and no hangover.

+ And trying new recipes!! Dying to make our own sourdough bread, have you tried it? Give me all your best tips and tricks!!

Hope you guys are surviving and finding silver linings in the current environment, I love you all so much and I am forever grateful for your readership!! Better days ahead, friends!!


Easter Basket Favorites

I’ll be the first to admit I am the least prepared for Easter this year. All of the days have been blending together, March felt like it was 900 days long and now all of a sudden Easter is next weekend! So, here we are whipping up last minute baskets and goodies for the kiddos! I’ve rounded up a handful of my favorite things, really feeling a yellow theme this year (need all the sunshine we can get!!) and of course sticking to a few classics like the glittery bunny ears!

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven

If your kids don’t already have an Instax camera, they are THE most fun thing. I love finding their little photo treasures scattered all over the house. So sweet to see things the way they see them!! I also grabbed the girls a few swimsuits & pairs of sunnies for vacation, but since we never made it, I am just sticking them in their Easter baskets!! Silver linings, baby. I also have a bunch of plastic eggs saved from last year that I will fill with things like nailpolish, hair clips, silly putty, love notes & of course, CANDYYY!!!

How are you guys holding up?! Tell us what your easter plans are!!
