Friday Favorites - Sweet Tea Edition

Happy Friday, Friends!  This has been a super busy week and while I'm not sure there's going to be a lot of down time, it's going to be a lot of fun!

Erika, Narci and I are all sharing our Friday Favorites - and you should too!  Grab our graphic, link back to one (or all!) of us and share away!

First up on my list is a fun day at school!  Yesterday was Bug Day in the first grade and Luke opted to be a praying mantis.  We found these bug glasses on Amazon and they actually allow you to see like a bug!  Apparently they were doing a whole center about bug senses and so he was super excited about them.



A few nights ago we walked down to one of our FAVORITE parks in the neighborhood across the street from ours.  Griffin was DETERMINED to do it "I-Self"...


... and when she panicked her big brother was there to help out :)




This sweet cat always hangs out in the neighborhood and Griffin talked to it most of the time we were there.  It followed us almost all the way home, but turned around at the last minute and headed back to the park.


Walking through the tunnel on the way home is her FAVORITE!



Next up is a random FAVORITE.  I am in LOVE with my Yeti Tumbler.  I say "my" tumbler loosely since it's technically Dave's :)  But I use it all the time!  It works just as well as you've probably heard it does and I've been using random Sonic or Starbucks straws in it up until this past week when a sweet reader told me about THESE.


It's a set of reusable, flexible straws that fit perfectly into the Yeti.  They even came with a cleaning brush.



 Happy Morning pictures are my favorite, and this weeks were great! 


"OMG, Becky! Look at her bow!  It is, like, so big"




I ordered this Sweet Tea sign from Decor Steals a few weeks ago, it came in yesterday and it's already a new FAVORITE.  We love us some sweet tea :)


 Nordstrom is price matching a few of my FAVORITE tops this week.  Great basics for summer!

One of the boy's FAVORITE things right now are key chains.  They love the Minecraft hangers and if your kids do too you should check them out HERE for a great price.




Monday morning Dave had to get an early morning meeting set up and so GG joined him for work.  She got to enjoy one of my FAVORITE views for breakfast :)  Not a bad way to start the day!




Griffin's FAVORITE big girl, Anna Grace, traveled to Guatemala on a mission trip before Spring Break and she brought the CUTEST dress back for Griffin!  Griffin LOVES the flowers, but I think she loves it even more because of who gave it to her.  I see a lot of this dress in our future this summer!



This weekend we're celebrating both Mason AND Griffin's birthdays.  They're having a party together tomorrow and we'll be celebrating them each at home as well.  TONS of partying around these parts!  I hope your weekend is full of fun and hopefully a little cake :)

  2. You have to use the cleaning brush every time or else the straws get nasty. Just a tip...I may or may not have skipped that step a time or two and lived to regret it. Annnnd...I need to come over and eat at your table and admire your Sweet Tea sign. I'm in love with it!

  13. I need to get my hands on those straws and brush cleaner. I am always drinking out of tumblers (I have a cat who believes it's her job in life to knock cups of liquid off of things) but the straws get so grimy, I end of tossing them and using disposable straws in the cups.

  14. Hahaha... I too have taken over Stephen's Yeti tumbler. I'm drinking out of it right now. ;)

  15. Well holy moly at the straw brush cleaner - MIND BLOWN! I have always despised drink cups with straws for the kids because I'm always so worried they're going to get germs from the straw not getting cleaned properly. I don't know why I've never thought to check Amazon or somewhere for a straw cleaner! Doing that right now!

  17. Happy Birthday to Mason and Griffin! Hubby loves his Yeti. Maybe I'll be a nice, loving wife and order him some straws :) That is an awesome price on those minecraft hangers. Bryson's still into the game, but not his little figurines. I need to send those to Luke and Mason. Can't wait to see the weekend party recap!

  18. I love my yeti.... Well, it's my husbands and I stole it! I've been using a paper straw in it and adding in some essential oils to flavor my water.... I'll have to check out the straws though!!!
