Friday Favorites

Wahoo for a long weekend!!  Even though the weather isn’t necessarily screaming, “Start of Summer!” over here in these parts, I’m SO excited to kick off summer.  Even if I am wearing long pants, a scarf, and a jacket.  🙂

My girls, Narci and Andrea, and I are hosting our usual Friday Favorites.  We’d love for you to join the party!  Blog something (anything) that’s your favorite, link back to us, and add your link-up!

This started out as a FAVORITE moment, but quickly went south.  On Monday after picking up Ebby Lee we ran into the grocery store.  I had the BEST attitude and agreed they could ALL push a kiddie cart.  What was I THINKING??!!  By the end of the shopping trip, we’d ditched one cart and I was bent down pushing two to the checkout.

Tuesday was this big kid’s last day of preschool EVER!  He is looking forward to spending the summer at home.  On Tuesday, the entire preschool (even Bowen’s one-year-old class) got to have Field Day.  Nixon loved it-except he is NOT a fan of getting “dry clothes” (you know anything that isn’t a swim suit) wet.  His teachers posted the funniest picture of him holding a wet sponge.  All the other kids have it over their heads and are getting drenched.  Nixon is holding his with only two fingers as far away from his body as possible!  haha!  Field day a FAVORITE.  Wet games in “dry clothes” not so much.

This dude is a mess and this was the best he’d give me on his last day of school.  He’s acting like a cheetah.  Don’t ask.  I don’t really know.

2/3 of my FAVORITE boys.

One of my FAVORITE things is arriving at the post office and having NO LINE!!!  I knew it was my lucky day!

On that whole post office note, if you ordered a Rodan + Fields’ Sunless Tanner from me, it was shipped this week and should hopefully arrive to you today or tomorrow.  Thank you to everyone who ordered!!

Classroom parties with these two are a FAVORITE of mine.  I snagged Nixon a few minutes early so he could join me in Bowen’s class.  

You can see the line behind him that says, “Bowen”.  That’s how tall he was at the beginning of the year.  Look how much he’s grown.  We’re so thankful for the sweet teachers the boys had.  They were such blessings to our family and loved our boys this year.

The Bachelor/Bachelorette is one of my very FAVORITE shows.  No matter how hard I try, I just can’t quit it.  Anyway, we went over to M and G’s on Tuesday night to have dinner and watch the Bachelorette.  I caught all the guys in the bedroom watching something manly.

On Monday, join Andrea and I for our Favorite Things Link-Up.  Monday is all about hair products.  We’d love for you to join us!

This is the list for the rest of the year.  We have a lot of fun left.

Hope you have the best weekend!  XOXO

    I recently let both of my kiddos have a little cart at the grocery store too–and it almost pushed me over the edge! They were running into people and running over my ankles!! Haha! Happy Friday and I hope it warms up in Texas!!

    The little carts might be the death of all parents everywhere. And I can't believe how much Bowen has grown!!!!

    Your hair looks so cute all pulled back! And one of the things I hate most in life are those kiddie shopping carts. It never works out well when I let my kids use them ! Enjoy your weekend and hopefully you guys get some sun!!!

    Hi Erika.
    I have been on the search for an upholstered king size bed, and the one in your last pic (of the guys) is just what I'm looking for….it's the right color and includes the frame to match the headboard.
    Would it be too much to ask if you could find out the source for this bed, and any thoughts on whether or not it has held up well? (I have 4 kids and despite all my efforts, they still jump on Mommy & Daddy's bed….so looking for something that is substantial)
    Much appreciation for anything you can share on it.

    I hate those shopping carts and cringe every time we go to Trader Joe's and my 4 yo wants one. I have started bribing him to get him to sit in a cart instead.

    Ugh. I agree. Quitting the bachelorette is so hard! I'm not sure I'm a fan of this season at all so far, but I watch anyways! Oh & I can TOTALLY relate to the mini cart fiasco. I always go into the mini cart pushing experience thinking "how fun will this be?!" and then it's just always crazy & I'm relieved when it's done! 🙂 Have a fun weekend & thanks for hosting the link up!
