Friday Favorites-7.15.22


Do you guys ever do that summer mom panic thing that I do? Like-have we had enough fun? Have they seen all their friends? Did we make some amazing memories? Did we do all the summer things we wanted to do? And basically the list goes on. Is it just me?

We have all next week at home and then we’re off on our summer vacation. We get back and BAM-school starts! So the summer mom panic is really setting in. 🙂

If you’re feeling it too, let’s just do our best to make the most out of the last couple weeks of summer.

Andrea and I are sharing our FAVORITES from the week!

Ebby Lee has a FAVORITE from the week. We did some shopping for a few friend birthday gifts and she stumbled upon this tiger necklace. Ebby Lee happens to be a huge Bengals’ fan {Remember last year she committed to being all in for whatever team won when we went to the Cincinnati game? Well, the Bengals got the victory and who knew she just chose to get behind a team who made it to the Super Bowl? Needless to way, she’s still all in} so when she spotted this necklace, it was love at first sight! I thought many of you might be cheering for your own tigers under the Friday Night Lights, early on Saturday mornings, or possibly like Ebby Lee you root for the Bengals on Sundays.


Last Friday evening was a FAVORITE kind of night…we celebrated Tab’s dad, often referred to as “G”, turning 70! Look how CUTE this cake was?!

Marla had three out of the four children and their families over for dinner. Tab’s cousin and his family were in town for a baseball tournament so their family of six joined us too. It was so good to see everyone and celebrate!

Marla has added a mannequin to her party decor box. She has a big school reunion coming up and really wanted to have this mannequin greeting guests in her alma mater’s cheerleading uniform. Since it arrived, this mannequin has enjoyed attending several get togethers. haha!

Bowen’s face is my FAVORITE! We enjoyed a delicious dinner of fajitas with a “Let’s Taco Bout a Party”-kind of theme. Happy 70th Birthday, G!


I have two FAVORITE Instagram follows I want you guys to check out…

Simplified-Shows easy ways to simplify our lives. I think of this account as just a pep talk. 🙂

The Grace Valentine-This account is full of ways to remind young women of their worth in Christ. She just wrote a book and I ordered. I think it’ll be great for Ebby Lee and I to read.


Bowen’s team ended their season this past weekend. Getting to be a part of this team was one of Bowen’s FAVORITE things about the spring.


Yesterday, I had all kinds of technical issues and my post didn’t publish until around 8:00 a.m. If you missed it, I shared some house updates!


One of my FAVORITE things about this time of year-BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLIES! I love the fresh new start of a new school year, all the new school supplies, and a clean slate. I can’t believe it’s already that time of year!!
