Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!  There’s just something about a short week…it’s like an optical illusion.  You think it’s gonna go by quickly and it tends to drag on.  That’s how I’m feeling this week, anyway.  🙂

I’m joining forces with my girls, Andrea and Narci, to share some of my Favorites on Friday!

First of all, THANK YOU to all you sweet bloggers out there who link up with us for our Friday Favorites.  I’m so thankful for you.  I realize hard work goes into each and every blog post and it doesn’t go unnoticed so THANK YOU!!!  You guys are my FAVORITE!

The Lush dress I wore in our Christmas card picture is on sale in several colors for under $30.
I mean am I a baker or what?  I must tell you that baking is NOT my thing, but I have never made one of Shay’s cakes that didn’t taste delicious.  Ebby Lee and I whipped this strawberry cake right up for our family Valentine dinner.  The recipe came out of my FAVORITE cake cookbook.  We added some extra neon food coloring to the icing because Valentine’s Day and everyone gave it two-thumbs up.  The boys grilled steaks.  Girls made a big salad with cake for dessert.  We were set!

This is my FAVORITE mail this week.  I ordered this tankini top and wasn’t really sure what to expect, but it’s so cute in person.  It’s a very sporty look but super age appropriate.  I’m ready for that Disney Cruise so I can sport my new suit!

On Monday, there was NO SCHOOL, so I got to hang out with three of my FAVORITE guys at the park.

They had no fear.  I was safely on the ground and my legs were shaking.

These two played Hide-N-Seek with Bowen.  #whodoyouthinkwon
Bowen would still be at the park looking for them if I hadn’t called the game.  🙂

I shared, “What I’ve Been Wearing to the Gym” on Wednesday.  You can find it here.

You guys!!!  We’re counting down the days over here….7 more sleeps!

I’m preparing for our Spring Break trip and would love some new book recommendations!!  If you’ve read something great lately, please send it my way!!  Thank you!!

I’ll see you back here on Monday!  Happy Weekend!

    That swimsuit top is SO CUTE! Thankfully because we aren't going anywhere for Spring Break, I've got like 2 months before I even need to think about swimsuit shopping! WHEW! 😉

    What is the color of your Lush dress called? LOVE it! I see two online called "Poinsettia" and "Marsala" but not sure if it is the same color as yours.

    I just finished "Where'd Ya Go Bernadette?" yesterday. It is clever and funny. Seriously, I laughed out loud many times, and even laughed so hard I cried! Very uniquely written and a real page took me 5 days to read! Highly recommend…I'll be returning it to the McKinney library shortly. 😉

    Love that bathing suit top! We JUST got back from a Disney Cruise a few weeks ago – and it was FANTASTIC! What boat are you sailing on?

    Happy Friday

    I am SO excited about Fuller House! The 27'th is my Birthday, and the 26'th was my Grams Birthday. She passed away two years ago on the 28'th. I feel like Fuller House coming back on her birthday is a little gift from God. Sounds silly but it's true! I miss my birthday buddy!

    I recently read a book by Patricia Bradley and LOVED it! She is a Christian writer and writes suspense/crime books. I read one in the Logan Point series and now I want to read all of them!

    I'm a Netflix Stream Team Member and I just found out that we get Advanced Access to Fuller House! I just made my request and hope you have it soon. I've already invited some of my Mom Friends over for a binge party. WHOO-HOO!

    I CANNOT WAIT for Fuller House, seriously, it can't get here fast enough. As for books, if you're looking for a Christian romance author, I can't recommend Lori Wick enough. I also love Lindzee Armstrong's "No Match For Love" series. If you're looking for a good laugh, Mindy Kaling and Chelsea Handler's books do not disappoint. Also, one of my dear friends from high school is a performer on the Disney Cruise line, I'd die if you were on his ship! #itsasmallworldafterall

    Have you read anything by Kate Morton? I loved The Lake House. (If it is slow starting off, give it some time and you will be hooked!)

    Ooh, have fun on your Disney cruise! I've never been to Disney and I've never been on a cruise, so that's definitely something to add to my bucket list!
