Friday Favorites - Popcorn Rocks Edition

Happy Friday, friends!  It's been a busy week getting back into the swing of things and I have lots of FAVORITES to share!



ErikaNarci and I are sharing our FAVORITES from the week and if you'd like to join us all you have to do is grab our graphic, link back to one (or all!) of us and add your link at the bottom of the post.


When I was on my trip last week I picked up some popcorn rocks fort the kids while I was at the caverns.  We started the process on Saturday by covering them with vinegar and they're currently on the desk just waiting for the vinegar to evaporate and crystals to start growing.  Along with a lesson in science it's been a lesson in patience as well :)


I'll update y'all on the progress in a couple of weeks.


This kid, that smile and his Pokemon are my FAVORITES! :)


A couple of weeks ago I picked up this face mask on Amazon and it's quickly become a FAVORITE.  We tried to get the boys to do it with us but they refused...


... but then Mason couldn't resist and he got the biggest kick ever out of it!


My FAVORITE little baseball player!



Monday was this girls birthday and we celebrated with one of her FAVORITE princesses in balloon form ;)



Playing restaurant is her FAVORITE so a tea cart and little tea set was the perfect birthday surprise.




We also celebrated Mason's birthday on Monday with a "day of fun" with his bestie ;)  First stop was Target for new Nerf guns, Beyblades and a few other surprises.


That's A LOT of balloons!


These crazy boys had THE BEST time!  And yes.... the TCU horned frog was a birthday gift ;)


Last stop on the birthday train was a trip to see Smurfs!  He dubbed the day the best party ever! #momwin


 While the boys were at the movies Griffin and I headed to her FAVORITE place - Playstreet. 


In her happy place!


(PS - Isn't her outfit PRECIOUS?!?!  You can find it HERE!  Olive and Gray graciously sent it to Griffin and I'm so excited for her to get tons of wear out of it this summer.)


This picture is blurry, but I feel like it completely captures her feelings about the afternoon ;)



My FAVORITE moment of the week was when Griffin put on her Snow White costume to show Haha who was stopping by and she asked Luke to marry her ;)  Being the great big brother that he is he happily obliged.  SO SWEET!!!



Mondays are my FAVORITE day to get dressed because I typically just throw on whatever I wore to church the morning before ;)  Easy!  This week was no exception and I wore the dress I wore on Easter which is quickly becoming a new favorite because of it's "breeziness" (which will make sense if you have to survive Texas summers!) and pockets.


Since I was out of town the week before his birthday and then we were out of school the Monday after we wrapped up the birthday celebrations with donuts for Mason's class on Tuesday.  He had these last year and requested them again.


I think these may be my FAVORITE birthday tradition!  Aren't they the cutest?!?!


When I was on the 8th grade trip last week the boys each stuck notes in my bag.  How cute is that?!?!  I think the fact that Luke wrote my entire name on the front is my FAVORITE part ;)


... and look at how big he and I are and how little the rest of the family is ;)


And from Mason...


Anyone else loving cuties?!?!  They're my current FAVORITE and I can't stop eating them!



 Playground time while Mason is at baseball practice is their FAVORITE!



And the back of this Matilda Jane dress is my absolute FAVORITE right now!  Isn't it so pretty?!?! 

Matilda Jane is running a sale right now on previous seasons (not this dress - sorry!), so be sure to check it out!  There are some great deals!



Mason's x-ray art this week was my FAVORITE! 


... and this was my FAVORITE funny from the week.


This weekend we have all the regularly scheduled programming... dance, baseball, etc. with a birthday party and seeing our FAVORITE Senior off to Prom thrown in the mix as well.

Happy Friday, Friends!!!

    1. The cart I think I linked to above... it's from Pottery Barn Kids and the tea set is Matilda Jane :) The sale items are previous collections... so look at the Happy and Free tab and below and everything should have a sale price. Let me know if you have any questions!

  17. Hi Andrea - have you ever done a post on gift ideas for special birthdays? Like someone turning 30 / 40? Its so hard to find something that a friend would like when they already have everything they need. Your ideas are always so great and you give different options/price ranges. Thanks in advance :)
