Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!!  I hope you’ve all had an awesome week!  I’m joining forces with my girls, Narci and Andrea, to share our Friday Favorites.  You can join us!!  Even if you don’t blog, post a picture on IG with the #fridayfavorites to participate.

I have some very FAVORITES to share with you today!!  First of all, we have a GIVEAWAY!!

One of my new friends, Crystal, who I met through my blog and Rodan + Fields has started making the cutest shirts, tanks, and shorts.  Crystal was so sweet and sent Ebby Lee and I the cutest monogrammed tanks.  
We are definitely not professionals (hence our poses, our shoeless feet, and the gutter in the background…#superclassy) but look how cute these tanks are!  My tank has the monogram on the back and Ebby Lee’s is on the front.  SO cute!

This girly was loving her tank!

And…a view from the front!!  Crystal is giving away a tank of choice to one lucky winner!  Enter the Rafflecopter at the bottom for your chance to win! 

You can follow Crystal @crystalchilek on Instagram where she posts all her goodies.  They’re all so cute and so affordable!  Or you can e-mail her at to order.

And just a few of my FAVORITES!!!  These would make awesome gifts!  Don’t forget to enter to win!  Thank you so much, Crystal!!

My FAVORITE school field trip to date (granted this was only my second-ha!) went down on Monday.  Ebby Lee and her friends in Kindergarten all went to the Sea-Life Aquarium.
Any one-on-one time with my kiddos is great!!  This trip was fabulous and the perfect little fun time for the two of us!

Ebby Lee was in the best little group.  Two boys and two girls.  They were all so sweet to each other and were the best listeners!   

Watching this guy play baseball is definitely a FAVORITE moment of my week!

On Tuesday morning before school, I noticed we were all wearing stripes.  Tab and Ebby Lee had already left, but they were both in stripes too!!  Stripes are apparently a FAVORITE!

Yesterday was the World’s Fair at preschool.  Each class studies a country, learns more about what life is like there, and then shares it with the rest of the school.  Bowen learned about Japan.  He told me they learned about horses.  Ha!  I’ll take it!

My FAVORITE country experience was in Mexico.  We had tortillas, chips, and guacamole.

And we got to experience REAL LIVE jumping beans!!  SO cool!  Teachers, I heard Nixon’s teacher say she ordered them off Amazon.  Seriously…they were the coolest thing.  If you’re learning about anything remotely related, you should check them out!  They read a book about it too!  Check them out!

If you missed my ACM awards recap, check it out HERE.  The comments from you guys were the best!!!  Or…the “Owning It” post from yesterday when Elise claimed her crazy is HERE.

Happy Friday, Girls!!  XOXO

    Those tanks are so cute! We need those like ASAP. Mexico would have been my favorite too. Give me all the chips and salsa 🙂 I need to check those jumping beans out. I think the kids would get a kick out of that. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Hey Erika I have a few questions!! Do you use a certain whitening on your teeth?! They are beautiful! And where do you buy your striped shirt from?!

      Thank you for saying that! I use good 'ol Crest White Strips. They're my favorite out of everything I've tried. And the shirt is from Gap last year. 🙂
