Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!!  Hope you had a fun week.  We had a pretty low key one around these parts.  We road tripped to see family, went to three parties, did some shopping and then Olive randomly got sick so we did lots of things around the house after that.  Summer sickness is the worst.  I was just thankful that she wasn't starting school this week.  We're all doing great now.  I have lots of favorites to share with you today.

Swim suit shopping isn't normally one of my favorites.  This year is different.  I headed to JCPenneys with a coupon in hand (Thanks, Jacque!!) and found 4 or 5 suits that I LOVED.  They were all so cute, but I was able to narrow it down to this gorgeous tropical print.  It was regular priced $96 and I paid $24 for it!!  Head to JCP if you're in the market for bold patterns, flattering one pieces or pretty cover ups.  They were STOCKED!!

We had a family reunion with my Dad's side of the family and it was so much fun!  I loved introducing all of them to Fletcher and catching up with cousins, aunts and uncles.  We already have this on the calendar for next year!

I ran out of my beloved Link Mink Clinique eye shadow and was on the hunt for a drug store option.  I was sucked in by the 24 hour title of this new Maybelline eye studio.  It's the prettiest color on and it wears really well.  No creasing and it lasts all day long.  It was less than $6 a pot and I knew it would be a great color when there were two full rows of them in the store.

We got to go on a road trip to visit family this week at it was my favorite.  We saw lots of people and packed in lots of good times.  My Dad snapped this picture of Olive.  She was helping him work in the yard, wash windows and go for a walk.  She loved it.

My niece Allie turned 7 and we were able to go to her birthday party.  We had a great time at a local pizza place.  The cupcakes were delish and the kids loved playing all the games together.  The kids always love playing with their cousins.

My Mom did lots of cooking while we were in town.  Olive loved her sugar cookies and insisted on having them for breakfast.  Her new favorite thing is to ask me to take a picture of someone so we can always remember them.  She asked to pose with Mimi and her cookies so we could always remember them.  They were good :)

The weather has been SO NICE!  We've had bonfires, watched the butterflies on our butterfly bush, picked flowers, gone for walks and gone to the park!!  We just can't get enough of all the outdoor fun and the crisp mornings make me excited for Fall.

Hope you have a great weekend!!

Linking up with


  1. I wore Link Mink forever. I love that color!
    YAY for so much family time!

  2. I love those suits! And that floral top from your neices party! And Olive's cheese face is the cutest! Hope y'all arrived safely on your trip!

  3. LOVE the new suit. JCP has been my bathing suit go to for years now, so many options and the coupons are great too. I need to check out that shadow. My go to is almost empty and needs to be replaced. Thanks for the recommendation! We were super thankful for a cool down in weather lately too. It was so hot for so long the 80's have felt great.

  4. What a cute suit!! I think I might head to JCP today! I can't believe you packed all this into one week! So glad Olive is better, hope the rest of you don't get it!

  5. Glad you got to come home and enjoy the weekend with us! We need to schedule another cousin visit soon :) and I need to go to JCP now that I'm down two kids :-D glad Olive is feeling better!!!

  6. Sounds like you had such a fun week! I'm not usually a bold print kind of girl, but that swim suit is so cute! And it looks like it would fit great with the way the seaming is positioned under the bust. And I'm glad Olive is feeling better! Being sick in the summer is no fun! Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. Fun times! We are going on vacation this month and I desperately needed pool attire - I ordered a rash guard from Old Navy and I'm hoping it fits! I burn so quickly that bathing suits are always a bad idea. Glad you found such a cute one for that amazing price! I have worn and loved that 24 hour tattoo shadow for years! I haven't worn that shade (only because it is ALWAYS sold out at Target!) but love Bad To The Bronze as a base or even on its own. Can't wait to hear about your beach vacation!
