Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!  I'm currently riding horses with 8th graders on a trip to the McDonald Observatory and will be making the LOOOONG (10 hr) bus ride home today.  So first up on my list of FAVORITES are my ear buds, blanket and pillow :)  

If you have FAVORITES to share you should join me, Erika and Narci by grabbing our graphic and linking up with us below.

After I put Easter away I wasn't QUITE ready to retire this tiered stand so I switched out a few things for some mugs, measuring cups (that were a gift from Luke and he's TICKLED that they're out!) and a candle. 

I saw this on Facebook last week and about died laughing.  Oh, high school.  My FAVORITE sticker of choice was always a heart and you KNOW I was tan because Dave worked at his aunt and uncle's tanning salon and used to let me tan for free.  ;)

Next are these tulips from Trader Joe's.  I was so excited to find the bulbs again as they last so much longer and the colors are always gorgeous!

I feel like I've droned on and on about  THIS SHIRT for weeks, but it's such a staple item in my closet it was worth mentioning it again.  Here it is in white...

And my new FAVORITE the lavender color.

Sleepy kiddos after school are my FAVORITE (and this was after we were at home and had unbuckled her... no worries!)....

... and kitties who sneak inside and sleep in the laundry room are my FAVORITE too :)

And when I was looking through pictures on my phone this one of G and I warming up in the bathroom during the TCU game cracked me up because Griffin is doing her FAVORITE pose again :)  We were taking a picture to text to Dave to let him know we were going to be a minute as we were attempting to thaw out our fingers.

Luke got a K'Nex ferris wheel set for his birthday and watching him put it all together and then proudly show it off was one of my FAVORITE moments of the week.

Another FAVORITE moment was getting to enjoy ALL the leftover mexican food from our family fiesta. 

And Mason asked me to take his picture and send it to his Haha and tell him that the one on the end was his FAVORITE in case he needed any ideas for his birthday :) 

And any time that the kids get to check out Uncle Stephen and Aunt Cynthias big red truck is a FAVORITE :)

Last week I ordered a couple of things from the Anthropologie at Nordstrom line and look how sweet!

I love  these little measuring bowls so much!  They're so pretty!

and  this kitty dish towel is in honor of our favorite cat ;)

Last up on my list is my new FAVORITES is this poncho by Halogen.  I tend to stick with a few brands that I know and love, so when Nordstrom reached out and asked me to take a look at their exclusive Halogen line I was intrigued but hesitant.  I'm a creature of habit and wasn't sure I was going to love it but y'all... I was so wrong!  Halogen as a brand is high-quality, consciously sourced, trend-right and a great value as a lot of their pieces can go from work to weekend.   I'm going to share a work outfit later this month, but today I'm talking poolside :)

A good coverup is an essential for me because I feel like I spent more time out of the pool grabbing snacks, taking kids to the bathroom and reapplying sunscreen than I do in the actual water.   This poncho can be worn over shorts and a tank but it makes the perfect coverup!  It is SO PRETTY and has a great tie at the waist to cinch.  I'd totally feel comfortable throwing this on over my suit, grabbing dinner poolside and then going on a golf cart ride with my crew.

I've always been a baseball cap girl and I decided to try out  this hat to up my game. I'm not sure if I'm cool enough to pull it off, but I do love it!

Now somebody take me somewhere fun!

Halogen also has some FANTASTIC shoes!  I grabbed  these espadrilles in blush, but am considering switching them out for the awesome yellow color because I can't quit yellow. They're comfy and cute and easy to walk in which is essential since I'm on my feet all day.  You can also find my top  HERE.

Thank you so much to Nordstrom for partnering with me on this post.  I always love sharing Nordstrom finds because of their amazing customer service and free shipping!

This weekend we have a lot on our plates - catching up on some much needed sleep (not in a bunk!) and Mason's birthday party!  WOO HOO!!!

I hope y'all have a wonderful Friday and great weekend!
