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.

Watching this girl play soccer - even if it is freezing and raining and 8 a.m. on a Saturday is one of my very FAVORITE things :) 

And the other FAVORITE is then having an excuse to hit the grocery store early and in what's basically pajamas :) 

(Hat leggings /  shoes)

The kids set up a "battle of the bands" over the weekend and watching them be creative (this was heavily STOMP-inspired) was a FAVORITE part of our day...

I picked up some of my FAVORITE flowers (ranunculus) at Trader Joe's last weekend and have absolutely loved having them brightening up the kitchen this week.


Being up on the table is NOT necessarily a FAVORITE.... BUT when you're up there to put the markers in rainbow order you get a bit of a pass :)  

(her jammies are Gymboree and you can find the metal caddy  HERE)

We celebrated our FAVORITE 11-year old on Monday (his camp trunk wasn't necessarily one of his presents but it came in the mail that same day so we surprised him with it)...

... with lots of K'Nex, Snap Circuits and Meccano :) 

His requested meal was homemade meatball subs...

... and he had a giant Harry Potter balloon bouquet waiting for him after school. 

Jelly Bean was NOT thrilled with the balloons :)

Mason and Griffin set a special table...

... and then Gibi and Haha came over for cake and to give Luke his presents from them.

We're not QUITE done celebrating Luke yet... his birthday party with his friends is tonight and then our "Family Fiesta" celebrating all three kids with family is on Sunday.  

I grabbed these "happy pants" at Marshall's the other day and I think they're going to be a Summer FAVORITE...

As are these tencel culottes I grabbed there as well.  I hadn't hit up a Marshall's in a while but they were well-stocked when I ran in last weekend.

PERFECT weather this week has made some evening playground time a FAVORITE...

... and while discussing cute boys swim options with a friend I came across one of my very FAVORITE summer photos that I'd somehow forgotten about.  I'm not sure how I forgot considering that the cuteness is OFF THE CHARTS!

This weekend we have lots of celebrating and lots of sports!  I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend planned as well!

HAPPY Friday!
