Friday Favorites-2.21.20

Happy, Happy FRIDAY!

This has been a busy busy week for me.  I’m happy to see the weekend arrive.  Today, Narci, Andrea, and I have teamed up for FRIDAY FAVORITES!  I hope you can join us!  In typical Friday fashion, I have a big pile of FAVORITES for you…

My first FAVORITE is from last week.  I was getting things ready for the first grade parties the night before Valentine’s Day, and Bowen was excited about it all!

The only picture I took during the Valentine’s Party.  #momfail
Check out his tongue…Bowen was SERIOUS about this game!  If you were in charge of some parties, let me know how they went!  Our first grade party was great!  This is what we did…

4 Stations:
*Math/Dice Game
*Little Lovebug Craft
*Minute to Win it Games
*Love Game {Kind of like Musical Chairs}

Valentine’s night was my FAVORITE!  Can you see above my head?  Tab was back there grilling dinner, Ebby Lee and Bowen decorated the dining room for us, and we watched The Proposal on the patio after we ate.  It was perfection!

This was on my Instagram feed this week and it’s a FAVORITE reminder.

I picked up my FAVORITE preschoolers from school this week and a picture was a must!

One day after school all the kids were playing outside as I was making dinner.  I looked through the window to see this…Britty suited up in flag football gear.  She was proud of it.  Can you tell?  😉

Wal-Mart reached out to me recently to ask if I’d like to share some new spring tops from their latest line. I scoured their website to check out the line and I was so impressed!   That Scoop brand does it AGAIN!  If you’re like me, this time of year I don’t want to be wearing dark fall colors but I also don’t want to spend a lot of money on bright cold weather things when spring is right around the corner.  Well, Wal-Mart has us covered, ladies!  This Scoop spring line has so many great items priced so well!

First up is this leopard sweater.  It comes in two other colorways as well.  I’m wearing a medium and would recommend sizing up at least one for the length {unless you have a short torso}.  This sweater is more on the shorter side so keep that in mind.  You could wear it with regular denim or white to make it a little more “spring-y”.

Another peek at the leopard sweater.

I also think this geo sweater gives a spring vibe with the white denim.

Okay, and THE gem and FAVORITE thing from the line is this peplum!  It’s a light, silky material, perfect for spring and it’s so darn cute!  This could be dressed up or dressed down.  I’m wearing a medium in the blue.

And a small in this pink peplum.

A closer look…if you add one spring top to your closet, let it be the peplum.

Check out this navy and white polka dot smocked peplum top.  It’ss a light fabric and I’m pictured in the medium.

If you daily have to dress up work, then you need this leopard wrap dress in your life!  Typically, I’m not a fan of wrap dresses.  They make me nervous with one little hook or clip keeping me from being exposed but this felt very secure.  I’m wearing a small.

Another work wear option, the ruffle dress. Love the style of this option.  I’m wearing the small.

You can shop all my favorites from the line here…

Thank you to Wal-Mart for sponsoring this post.

We have a Frozen fanatic in our house now and on the daily she gets an article of clothing out of her room to wear it on her hair like this and she walks around saying she’s, “Anna”.


Spring sports are ramping up around here so I snagged a picture of Nixon headed to his first official “in the field” practice yesterday with none other than “Anna” herself.

Lastly, we have a lot of Mix and Match Travel clients who have recently returned from the most MAGICAL place on earth.  Several have sent me pictures so I wanted to share….

This last family had a scavenger hunt for the grandkids to discover THEY WERE ALL HEADED TO DISNEY WORLD!

If you’re planning your own Walt Disney World vacation, please send us an e-mail at  We’d love to help your family a magical vacation of your own.

That’s all I’ve got today, friends.  Hope you have the BEST weekend!

    I miss those ages of class valentine's! My boys never really seemed to care but I always killed with some amazing handmade Valentine treats.

    What size are you wearing in the geo sweater? I'm long-waisted too and usually an XS. Just wondering if I should get the S or M.

    I'm wearing a medium in the geo sweater…I'd size up one or two if you'd prefer it oversized. 🙂
