Friday Favorites - Slow Week Edition



 

 ErikaNarci and I are all sharing our Friday Favorites and we'd love for you to join us!  Grab our graphic, link back to one (or all!) of us and link to your blog at the bottom of this post.  Easy!


Today's post is going to be short and sweet.  This has been a slow week at our house and the laid back pace has been my FAVORITE!  Not a whole lot on the agenda but fun and hanging out together!  #amen



 Evening swims and this floral suit are our FAVORITES!

(her suit is sold out - the original link is HERE in case you want to keep an eye on it to see if it comes back in stock.  The brand is GREAT quality and we love all their suits!)



Waiting at the car dealership is our FAVORITE when there are cookies and hot chocolate!



And when y'all tag me and let me know you're loving recipes I share.... well that's my FAVORITE! ;)


Luke and I have been having a week-long Mario-Kart tournament.  Racing it out after the other two go to bed has been one of my FAVORITE times this week.


Griffin andI did one of our FAVORITE things this week as well...


Pretty sure that's how my face looks when I lick cake batter....


Movie night popcorn is our FAVORITE!







A little "luxury" that I miss sometimes during the school year is just hanging out with lots of time on our hands.  Watching these three play and be silly while NOT folding laundry, wiping shelves and/or grading papers is probably my FAVORITE part of summer.  




While I shared some pretty pictures of our yard yesterday, my FAVORITE way for the patio to look is like this...


... lunch, books, towels thrown everywhere and kids in the pool.

We are LOVING the spray sunscreen from Trader Joe's this summer.  We haven't had a single sunburn at our house and I'm giving the spray the credit (and the fact that I haul them out of the water about every hour to dry off and reapply).


PS - Mason's suit is from Boden and you can find it HERE.  He HATED his regular swimsuits because they were "too heavy" and so we tried this out and he's IN LOVE!!!  It doesn't hurt that it's absolutely precious!

Red, white and blue attire is my FAVORITE in the summer and I probably have too much fun picking out festive outfits for everyone for Fourth of July.

I got the boys this peace shirt and rockets' red glare shirt (and I can't get the picture to rotate - boo!) and they are so soft and festive!


I ordered this dress for myself because SIXTEEN DOLLARS and I think it will be really cute with flip flops and will be comfy enough to take me from the parade, to the pool to fireworks.




Those little freckles are my FAVORITE!!!


Earlier this week we celebrated one of my FAVORITE girls bringing home her baby girl and I was tickled to wrap up a cute gift (pool float HERE)...


GG and I had to run by one of our FAVORITE places this week and she was loving being in charge of the cart...





... and another FAVORITE view from the week.  Yes ma'am.


Hope y'all have a GREAT weekend!!!

  3. Lots of goodness on your favorites list today, Andrea. I've looked at that same little red gingham dress. It's so cute. You'll look adorable in it! I seriously can not get over how big Griffin has gotten in the past year. Watching her grow and transform from that toddler to the little girl is so crazy. Have a great weekend!

  8. We receive Consumer Report and they recently did a sunscreen study. Trader Joe's spray did pretty well! We use it too.

  13. Be careful with SheIn!! I got super excited because all of the prices were so good, but when everything arrived (3 weeks later....) they smelled straight out of a Chinese factory. I've heard that they cheaply recreate pictures of dresses they find online. That's not to say that nothing in my order was wearable.... but very few items were. Hope yours turns out well!

    1. Agree!! I ordered about 5 pieces from them and not ONE was wearable! Ugh. Lesson learned.

    2. Oh noooooooo! I've only ordered from then once before (years ago) and it was fine - crossing my fingers this works out!

  14. I ordered that dress too. Let me (blog world) know what you think. I think I am too old but I bet you look adorbs!!!!

  15. That Trader Joe's sunscreen is the best! It was rated 100% in Consumer Reports, so you know it is good!!

  16. That gingham dress is so cute! And I SO wish we had a TJ's here but we don't. We just went to the one in ATL on Wed while we were there and I wish I had known about their sunscreen! I would have loaded up!

  17. Love all of these. You are seriously just the sweetest and most genuine person :) I just love following your darling family. I SO wish our Trader Joes was closer. I need to run and get some sunscreen and some flowers soon!!! I am always inspired by all your finds there. xoxo ERIN

  19. Would you mind sharing what size Mason's swim shorts are and about how much he weighs so I can compare to my 4 year old? I want to order him some but I'm unsure of the size because I want them to fit tight!

    Thanks for always sharing such fun ideas! Looks like y'all are having a great summer:)
