Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!  May 6th…can you believe that?  This spring is flying by for me.  #timeslowdown

I’m joining my girls, Andrea and Narci, for our Friday Favorites.  The day we share a hot random mess of faves and we invite you to join us.  Simply blog your favorites, link back to us, and then add your blog to our link up.  It’s simple!

Here is my hot random mess for you today…

One Stop Bow Shop is where I find all of Ebby Lee’s bows.  The owner, Casey, is FABULOUS!  

 One Stop Bow Shop matches lots of our favorite brands like Matilda Jane.  🙂

They launch new styles and fabrics often.  One Stop Bow Shop recently launched dark and light denim and over ten burlap hairbow options.  

A fun way to try out many styles of hairbows at a low cost is The Monthly Bow Box.  Five hairbows a month for $20.  You can cancel membership at anytime.

You can purchase directly on Instagram.  It’s easy.  Simply follow @onestopbowshop.  After they post, you comment “sold”, and leave an e-mail to purchase.

I have GREAT news!!!  Until May 15th, One Stop Bow Shop is offering 20% off with the code “ebbylee”.  If you’ve never tried Casey’s bows before, NOW is the time!

Ebby Lee wears the XLarge.

Bowen and I finally found the perfect rug for our front entry room.  Let me just tell you it is a BEATING to ship back area rugs.  Luckily, one rug I ordered was too small for this space but it found it’s forever home in the office.  #winwin  I have a few more things to finish and I’ll be ready to share the new space with you.

I shared a last minute Mother’s Day gift guide.  Check it out here.

Last week after school we finally got out one of their Christmas presents we’d be stowing away for a rainy day.  The Magic School Bus Science Kit has about fifty science experiments that are quick and easy. 

Then we got out one of Nixon’s birthday presents.  I mean who comes up with this…

 Doggie Doo….where the winner scoops up the most dog poo.

 The big kids were totally into this game.

 Bowen did this every time someone had to squeeze.  Just in case, I guess.  haha!

A blog post about “What I’m Eating” was requested by several of you, so yesterday I shared everything I ate the day before.  You can read it here.

 Bowen has been catching some zzzzz’s in the weirdest places.

 He crawled up in the office chair beside me and fell asleep just like this.

I started off the week with my better half visiting on the blog!  Tab and I shared some thoughts about marriage.  Thank you for all the kind words regarding that post.  You can read it here.

Smith and Ashby were over on Monday afternoon.  We all made “thank you” notes for our teachers.  The big boys were writing legit thank you notes while Bowen and Ashby were having me spell things like, “Mommy”, “Daddy”, “Kensington”, “Nixon”, and “Poppy”.  hahaha!

And blogger friends…don’t forget this Wednesday, the 11th, Shay and I are STRANDED again.  Can’t wait to see what Three Books everyone would bring!

This weekend-girls who are trying their hardest to get pregnant, please know you are on my heart.  Praying for you!  I know it’s a hard weekend.

Have a fabulous weekend, girls!  XOXO

    I love that rug – but I did the same thing!! Bought a rug too small for our den and the shipping to return it would cost more than the rug…so it now sits in our office!! Happy Mother's Day Erika!

    I love all those bows! What a great idea to have a monthly shipment of them! When I was a little girl, I must say I rocked the big bows quite well! My mom made me bow hangers in my closet made out of long pieces of ribbon where she would clip them on.

    Happy Mother's Day Mama! 🙂 xo, Kristina
