Friday Favorites-4.30.21

Happy FRIDAY!!

Andrea and I are here sharing our FRIDAY FAVORITES and just like each and every week we invite you to join us!  Grab our graphic, link up with us, and add your blog to the link-up at the bottom of the post!

This week I have a little random assortment of things to share, but it’s a bit short and sweet.

First FAVORITE is…a Photo-A-Day Challenge with Shay over on Instagram!  For the last few years Shay and I have teamed up to do a little May Challenge.  It’s always so much fun!  You should join us!  Share with your friends, get your group together to join, and come post with us!  You just post with the prompt in mind each day and be sure to use the #photoadaywitherikaandshay so we can all see your pics!  We’d love to see you there!  It starts TOMORROW!  


A JT FAVORITE-I couldn’t resist, ladies!



When did tornado sirens start going off for thunderstorms as well?  Just this week the girls were getting in bed and at that exact moment the sirens started going off so I let them sleep downstairs in our room.  Do the sirens go off in your town for only tornadoes or for thunderstorms as well?

Growing up in Missouri, we had our fair share of tornadoes…I remember two particular occasions where I was in a tiny safe space and damage had happened when we all came out.  This time of year is NOT my FAVORITE for that reason but once summer gets here hopefully those tornadoes stay away!


While the girls were huddled up in my bed, the guys were enjoying the Rangers game.  I called Tab when we were IN bed and I could hear the stadium singing, “Take Me Out To The Ballgame”.  That new Rangers stadium is their FAVORITE.


It’s often hard to share Britt’s exact personality by just showing you pictures of everyday life but now this picture it captures her feisty, spunky self really well.  She’s sugar and spice until she feels comfortable and then she adds in some sass to become Miss Personality.  These two are FAVORITES.


In case you missed a post from the week…

Wednesday, I teamed up with Sheaffer and Shay for What’s Up Wednesday.

If you’re contemplating some new casual sandals for spring, THESE arrived this week, are on sale, and are really cute in person!  Definitely a FAVORITE purchase!

Okay, I REALLY hope you join us for the Photo-a-Day Challenge!  Thanks for reading today!

    Didn't you love answering those 10 questions? I was really glad I did that as kind of a cleansing activity!

    We don't have tornado sirens but I would be pretty upset if they started going off with thunderstorms as we seem to have them all the time.

    I'm from California but recently moved to Oklahoma and I dread hearing a tornado warning! This will be my first tornado season and I'm definitely nervous about it! We have a storm shelter, but I'd rather not have to use it! 😆
