Friday Favorites


The LAST official day of summer in our house is happening today!  And I’ve got all the feels about it.  To brighten my day {and hopefully yours} my girls, Narci and Andrea, and I have teamed up again for Friday Favorites!

I really could sum up my Friday Favorites of summer with this one picture.  As crazy as they drove me at times, my very favorite thing about summer was hanging out with these four.  And Bowen, when your mom takes two pics and your eyes are closed in both she’s got no choice but to post one.  #thebestoftwo

Okay, girls…the verdict is IN!
I’ve seen a ton of bloggers, social media people, etc. share about making Kodiak Cakes.  I believe the company started out primarily as a 100% whole grain pancake/waffle mix packed with protein, vitamins, and other things that are good for us.  Now they have muffin mix, frozen waffles, and Kodiak cups.  I found the waffles at Tom Thumb a while back and we’ve been eating those for a while.  My favorite way is with a little peanut butter and strawberry jam.  A few weeks ago I stumbled upon the Kodiak cups.  You just add a little water, microwave it for a few minutes, and voila-instant breakfast.  I tried three different flavors…cinnamon, blueberry, and vanilla.  Hands-down the cinnamon was my favorite.  I prefer a warm breakfast but am typically too lazy to make it and the thought of getting my clean kitchen dirty by 7:00 a.m. always deters me.  So, I’ll be stocking our pantry with these!  I had lots of people tell me they feed these to their kiddos and they think they’re getting to eat cake for breakfast.  WIN-WIN!  They’re gonna be a new FAVORITE breakfast this week!  {I found the Kodiak cups at Target.}

Crazy Rich Asians-the MOVIE was just released.  I went earlier this week to watch it in the theater with some friends and it was SO GOOD!  If you’ve read the book, I highly recommend checking out the movie!  And even if you never read the book, this is a CUTE girly movie you’ll enjoy!


I got asked about what I use to apply my toner.  {I shared a new favorite toner with you guys and several of you shared one you love.  You should read it!}  These are the exfoliating cotton rounds I use…just from Target.  One side is soft and the other has a more exfoliating surface.  I dab some toner onto the soft side and apply it to my entire face and then I flip the pad over and swipe over my face with the exfoliating side.  I’ve used a variety of things from cotton ball on and these are my favorites.

And one of my favorite moments this week was showing up to church twinning with this girl.  Jackets {because Sheaffer told us to}, romper {mine is sold out, but I got it here}, and Barrington bags.  🙂

Now I’m off to soak up every last minute of summer fun we can have today.

See you Monday!

    I'll say it again. I'm so pleasantly surprised at how much I loved that movie since I wasn't a fan of the book! But I'm now a convert and will definitely finish the series. Such a fun little night! (Did Tab tell you about Craig at the game? HAHAHAHAHA…)

    After reading your blog post about the Kodiak cups I immediately went to Target and purchased some! They’re a game changer! My husband and I both leave early for work and these have made our mornings so easy!
