Happy Friday, Friends!!! It's been a lazy, but fun week around here! Lots of cute FAVORITES for you today :)
Erika, Narci and I ADORE hosting the Friday Favorites link-ups every week, but lately people have been posting TONS of random links. Like... links to 14 of your old blog posts from the past month... which makes it hard for people to find the actual Friday Favorites posts. PLEASE only link to your ONE Friday post ;) Thanks, ladies!
First up, my love for little girl bathing suits runs DEEP. I grabbed this one on a resale page for $5 and it's a new FAVORITE for sure. So cute! It's a little big, but I'm excited to get some wear out of it this season and next. My sunnies are always her FAVORITE ;)
That little smile :)
The kids are going to be in Dave's brothers wedding this Fall and we took the boys to get fitted for their tuxes this week. I can't WAIT to see them in October! I mean, if they're this precious now I can't imagine how stinkin' adorable they're going to look when they're in the actual tux :)
"Hey there, handsome!"
We laughed so hard at the kids in the mirror :) Apparently watching themselves dance is their FAVORITE.
Afternoons in the pool with my people are still a FAVORITE! Blue is not my FAVORITE color, but after all the compliments I got on snapchat when I posted a little video that showed me in this swim top I may have to start incorporating it into my wardrobe more often :)
We spent some time with our FAVORITE set of twins this week. First at our house...
(PS - GG drinking tea is my FAVORITE!)
When you're the only one ready for pics :) hahaha
... and then my boys went to their house. #bestdayever
Apparently Mason was a spy and NOT Spiderman. That kid is my FAVORITE ;)
So about a year and a half ago I chopped off 14" of hair and donated it...
I've been blessed with fast-growing hair and as soon I I chopped it off I knew I would grow it out again with the intention of doing another donation.
This past week I measured it and decided it was time because HOLY HECK IT'S HOT!!! :) Also, as convenient as it is to be able to throw it up in a top knot (and leave it there for days), it was taking a ridiculous amount of time to dry. Here I was on the way to the salon...
... and about an hour later!
I'm missing the convenience of the top knot but am LOVING the lightness. Once again I was told by another stylist that I have the thickest hair that they had seen in their entire career (I've been told this at least a dozen times) and so she thinned it out a TON which feels fabulous. I haven't decided yet whether I'm going to grow it out and donate it again or maintain this length. We'll see!
This time I opted to donate to Panetene's Beautiful Lengths program and if you're interested in more info you can find it HERE.
While the boys were playing at their friends house on Wednesday, Griffin and I (and baby) hit up one of our FAVORITE places. Pretty sure the grocery store would be my FAVORITE too if someone pushed me around and I got to eat cheese, a cookie and a freshly made tortilla :)
And before we went into the store I snapped a picture to send to Dave and when I looked at I squealed because I happened to catch this! Love when you happen to snap that perfect moment - cute smile and actually looking at the camera. Win! Win!
I bought Griffin a stinkin' adorable pair of boots for Fall and they came in this week. It's going to be MONTHS before she actually gets to wear them, but they're still our FAVORITE ;)
This happened one evening and it was my FAVORITE moment from the week :)
With this moment a close second :)
We haven't done much "formal" crafting this summer. But watching them create on their own is a FAVORITE of mine...
GG is working a lot on cutting. She actually uses both hands (she's STRONGLY left for everything else) for cutting and so we're working on helping her practice with both.
and she is a big fan of glue :)
Luke worked on paper pockets to hold al kinds of things (X-Men cards, Legos and rocks to name a few)...
... GG worked on this (and about a dozen others like it)...
... and Mason's final creation made me smile BIG ;)
This view is my FAVORITE...
And here's another FAVORITE view. #getitdude
Luke and I have been doing some little experiments. Teaching him new things is so much fun and definitely a FAVORITE.
The picture below is kind of dark, but this new shade from Essie is my FAVORITE!
If y'all could keep two of our FAVORITE girls in your prayers this week they're in Kenya! We miss our Anna Grace and McKinley and can't wait to see how God works through them on their trip!
Griffin's FAVORITE dress? This one with dinosaurs :) Because #rawr
The Nordstrom Sale is everyone's FAVORITE and I found a few great things that you can check out HERE. ;)
And last but not least... how adorable are these nativity sets??? Meaghan at Heart and Home is doing a pre-order for them HERE and they'll ship in November. We're getting the big plush one for the kids playroom and I am so excited!
This weekend we have zero plans... well... we STILL need to finish clearing out our garage (OMG!!!), but other than that we have no plans. ;)
