Friday Favorites-4.6.22

I’m not sure about where you live but after today our kids have just two weeks left of school. I mentioned that last night to Tab and he was shocked! Yes, just ten more school days until it’s officially SUMMER in our house! Ready or not, here it comes! I’m here today with my girl, Andrea, sharing some FAVORITES from my week. As always we’d love for you to join!

First up, pickle ball…the Slaughter family’s FAVORITE new recreational activity. The Easter Bunny {wink wink} brought enough sets for us all to play. From Britt to Tab we all enjoy it. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s similar to tennis but instead of a tennis racket you have something that resembles more of a ping pong paddle {but a little larger}. The ball is a wiffle ball and the court is much smaller than tennis. It’s a much more casual, conversational game than tennis. I work up a sweat, don’t get me wrong, but you’re close enough to each other to carry on a conversation where in tennis you have to somewhat scream across the court. Our town has actual pickle ball courts and then a few tennis courts that are also able to transition to pickle ball courts quickly.

We’d only been playing on Wednesday night for about 15 minutes before it started raining on us, but we kept playing in the rain. Making those family memories, right? Totally worth it!


How about some FAVORITE summer jewelry? These are some of my favorites all year long, but especially in the summer months! White Raffia Earrings / White Beaded Hoop Earrings  / Gold Hoop Earrings / Pink Rattan Earrings / Stacking Bracelets / Tiny bead bracelets / Chunky Bracelet / Buddha Bracelets / Tube Bubble Bracelets / Kendra Scott necklace / Initial Pendant /  Three layer pearl necklace


Swim lessons are always a FAVORITE! This girly did great this year! She is swimming like a little fish and is READY for summer!

I bought this suit before Mexico so her exact colorway is sold out but it also comes in blue. It’s the softest swimsuit ever!


I’m SO excited Britt is going to kindergarten in the fall. One of her FAVORITE people will also be going to kindergarten as well. Our elementary school just had a little event for preschoolers to get used to the school, meet some teachers, and get to know other kids joining them at school. We just happened to see one of Britt’s friends from her TK class. We didn’t know she was going to our school and she didn’t know about us.


That’s all I’ve got today, friends! Happy Weekend!

    Love the concept and idea of the Buddha bangles. Can you tell me how big they are when you wear all of them?
