Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!   Erika Narci and I are all sharing our FAVORITES from the week and we'd love it if you'd join us!  Just link back to one (or all!) of us, grab our graphic and link up at the bottom of the post.

First up on my list for today is  this SUPER sweet rainbow dress.  I was skeptical since the price was under $15 but it is SO SOFT and appears to be well made.  I haven't washed it yet so I can't attest to the durability but all seems well so far!

And speaking of FAVORITE summer attire - this kid rocking all his Sky Ranch gear has us all excited!

Mason LOVES to set the table and takes a ton of pride in making everything look nice (wow, that apple didn't fall far!) and it's so sweet because Griffin always fawns ALL OVER it when he does this.  Here he was walking her in to see his table :)  FAVORITE!

When I talked about these jeans a few weeks ago I forgot to mention  my new FAVORITE top I paired with them!  It's a splurge but it's gorgeous and detailed and is something that I see hanging in my closet for years and years to come.

There's a new FAVORITE snack around our house... we are LOVING these coconut clusters from Costco!  I HIGHLY recommend trying them if you haven't already!

Griffin got called to the front of chapel on Monday to "lead" a group of students around as part of a demonstration.  A teacher sent me this picture which I think shows that this was one of her FAVORITE moments from the week :)

And speaking of FAVORITE moments - a sweet MCA student who works for Dave (he has a BUNCH who work for him) and mows our lawn came by on Monday afternoon to haul off a bunch of dead bushes we took out and after he was done (and paid! keep that in mind) Mason asked him if he wanted to shoot some hoops with him and he said yes :)  He's a junior and I'm sure he had better things to do AND he was "off the clock" since we'd already paid him and he took 20 minutes out of his day and absolutely MADE Mason's week.  FAVORITE!

Can you spy Jelly Bean in her new FAVORITE spot???

Lots of y'all asked me about one of my FAVORITE pairs of earrings - if you want a pair you can grab them HERE. They're not as heavy as you might think and they're just so much fun.  Every time I wear them they make people smile because I mean... they're giant rainbows :) 

I've been asked a couple of times about my FAVORITE Easter books and hands-down it's The Garden, The Curtain and The Cross.  I reviewed the book (as well as several other great ones) in  THIS POST if you're interested in finding out more.

My FAVORITE soccer girl had a game on Tuesday night - she's getting SO BIG! 

and my most FAVORITE moment from the week was when Griffin picked Luke to be her partner for a surprise dance her class had been working on and I'm not sure I've ever seen her smile so big!

Luke was SUCH A GREAT sport and made Griffin feel like a million bucks. 

God Bless big brothers! (and photo-bombing brothers - hahaha)

Last up is something SUPER cool!  The STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) is next Tuesday and McDonald's of North Texas restaurants are offering STAAR Free Breakfasts to students in 3rd - 8th grades as well as teachers on the big day!  On April 9th from 5:30 - 10:30 AM students can receive a completely free breakfast by going inside the restaurant with a valid school ID.  You know that I'm big on only recommending things that I have and love so you I HAD to try out the egg white delight McMuffin (#forthekids) and y'all... it was SO GOOD!   I wouldn't recommend pairing it with a large Diet Coke for your kids but if you need a little pick-me-up in the morning Diet coke all the way :) 

When McDonald's first approached me about sharing I was completely unaware about their commitment to education programs but after reading about them was SO IMPRESSED and excited to share.  Last year they gave away close to 21,000 breakfasts as part of the STAAR Free Breakfast Program and their Archways to OpportunityTM Program which helps employees further their education and achieve their dreams.  More than 20,400 restaurant employees have enrolled in the program since its launch in 2015 - how awesome is that?!?!  So screenshot this graphic and start spreading the word about Free STAAR Breakfast!
