Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!!! It's been a BUSY and fun week at our house with lots of FAVORITES to share!

Erika and I are so excited that lots of y'all are linking up with us!!!!  If you're linking up with us make sure you grab our graphic, link back to one (or both!) of us and share your own Friday Favorites post.


First up - CAMP LIFE!  Mason and Griffin went to Pine Cove City camp this week with lots of friends from school.  It's essentially the Pine Cove program in a day camp format hosted at local churches and schools.  

(My boys both did the Sky Ranch Launch camp years ago which is what initially made us fall in love with their programming)

Thursday was Olympics day and they both pulled from their closets to support the USA :)

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

When I make cookies they're usually these chocolate chip because they're simple, always turn out great and I have the recipe memorized :)  Luke asked me to make oatmeal raisin cookies earlier this week and I realized that I didn't have a recipe for them and quickly went on the hunt.  I tried  this one and we fell in LOVE - soft center, crispy edges and full of flavor.

Amazon Lately


Coming at you today with another SUPER RANDOM assortment of Amazon purchases :) First up is  this linen duvet cover.  After purchasing three different much less expensive duvets that I really wanted to love I realized that if I wanted the look/feel of linen I would just need to bite the bullet and purchase linen.  The duvet cover arrived and it's everything I wanted - it's well made, beautiful, a great weight and has that lived in linen look (DUH! it's linen) and while it was more expensive than the linen blend and cotton covers I had tried before it's still a GREAT value compared to the covers I was looking at at various other stores.

Warm/Cool Art Project

I've had this project on our to-try list for EVER and ended up loving this just as much as Mason (if not more!)  Our finished products turned out super cute and we had a lot of fun working on these together.

Weekend Happies - Recital Edition

Happy Monday, friends!!!  This weekend was all about RECITAL!!! It was extra exciting since she didn't have one last year and it was the perfect ending to a great year of dance.

She and I headed up to the studio on Friday morning for pictures and run throughs.  Sweet friends from school were in a couple of her classes which has made dance even more fun this year.

First up was the highlight of the week... Mason FINALLY spent his birthday money!  And he bought a   humongous remote controlled monster truck because of course he did ;)  It is SO FUN and we've had a blast watching him drive it off jumps, pull wheelies, and drag race it down the street.

Reading Recap

Summer is in full swing and I'm finally settling into a good routine with downtime and reading.  The first few weeks I always feel like I have to tackle my to-do-list and get my whole house ready to actually relax in (weird, I know) so I don't have a ton of reading updates to share but the ones I have are GOOD!

  The Housekeeper by Natalie Barelli was a psychological thriller that kept me guessing until the end. "When Claire sees Hannah Wilson at an exclusive Manhattan hair salon, it's like a knife slicing through barely healed scars. It may have been 10 years since Claire last saw Hannah, but she has thought of her every day, and not in a good way. So Claire does what anyone would do in her position - she stalks her."  It was dark and twisty and I loved getting to feel like I was in Claire's head by the narration.  She was also snarky which added a fun humorous aspect to the book as well which I enjoyed.

Summer Sounds

 Hey, friends!  Today I'm sharing one of my very favorite things -  music!  We LOVE listening to music and have a few playlists that we listen to daily that I thought I'd share.

First up is our "Sounds Like Summer" playlist - this is something that we'll have on while we swim and hang out outside - it's upbeat, fun and for sure a mix ;)

Treehouse Collage Craft

Treehouses have been a hot topic of conversation at my house for a while now - planning, dreaming, designing, etc.  Both my boys have read the  13-story Treehouse series and Griffin is getting into  Magic Treehouse which has just made them all the more into treehouses in general.  When I came across  this project idea I knew my kids would LOVE it!

Cheesy Chicken and Rice

Hey, friends! I'm always on the lookout for a quick and easy weeknight meal and I LOOOVE rice so I was excited to try out  this recipe.  I changed it up a bit just to simplify things and everyone in my house gobbled it up.  It doesn't look like much but it was SO GOOD!

Father's Day Gift Ideas

PERSONALIZED BASKETBALL

I've ordered footballs from this company several times and they are SUCH GREAT QUALITY!  I think a football or basketball with "BEST DAD" or a nickname or "DADS ONLY!!!" would be so much fun!
