Friday Favorites

Or as Marin calls them, "faveowits." I will miss her baby words so much when they are gone.  If you follow on Instagram then you've seen me mention that both Marin and Brite have birthdays this month, making April a nostalgia hurricane and me a ball of mom mush.  Moving on...

Some friends of ours GAVE us (so generous!) their swing set and it is such a game changer.  We play on it no less than six times a day, and one of my all-time favorite things right now is watching Marin on this swing, learning to pump her legs and giggling. You know, just being pure magic on a Spring day.  This week, right around the moment I took this picture, she asked me, "Mommy, am I your sunshine girl?" So I'll be over here on this ant pile crying.

Some other favorites from this week, not quite in the aforementioned unicorn section but still spectacular, have included:

This Beautiful Writers podcast recommended by a friend.  I've only listened to a couple so far, but it is really good, especially if you have an interest in the dynamics of writing.

Also, have you guys watched Jimmy Fallon and Melissa McCarthy's lip sync battle yet? I can't handle it. SO funny.

And on the topic of funny, a friend sent me a clip of THIS mom talking about "the amazing mother chart." I laughed so hard because, yes, there may be a two-day-old banana somewhere in my car.  It's good to remember that life and motherhood is messy sometimes, so let's just laugh about it -mk?

As some may know, we LOVE Trader Joe's for many reasons, but mostly because they are super affordable and carry lots of healthy organic options. Anywho, we tried this TJ's fig butter on port salut cheese and DELICIOUS.  Definitely worth a try if cheese is your thing as it is ours.  ;)

This week, I ordered this top in black from Kate Hudson's brand Fabletics. They are offering 50% off your first Fabletics purchase, so I got it for a little less than $10.00.  A good friend recommended their work out clothes to me and I'm pumped to try this new tank out!  Can't beat some of their entire outfit discounts either.

And lastly for these Friday "faveowits".. I'm having so much fun prepping for Marin's princess party next weekend and found this sweet little crown from Anthropologie for her to wear.  Their toy/kids section is super cool if you've never checked it out.

I think that about does it. Happy Friday, friends! I hope you and yours have a great weekend!


  1. I've been curious about Fabletics for awhile. I'll have to try them out!

    1. Whitney! You'll have to let me know if you end up trying them and what you think! Hope you are doing well, friend!
