f r i d a y favorites


ONE. Books. I've been on a reading/Audiobook roll this year so far. I just finished The Great Alone-it was SO, SO good. Like couldn't put it down good, it had me on the edge of my seat and in tears all on the same page. Before The Great Alone I finished When Life Gives You Lululemons-I really debated this one because of the title I thought it might be too cheesy but I really loved it, such a light and easy read. I read Into the Water honestly meaning to grab Something in the Water, I actually enjoyed it but you have to pay attention to get all the characters right at the beginning, such an interesting twist to this book. And my oh my, I love, loved My Oxford Year, like really liked it. It is a fun romantic novel with some interesting twists. Next up on my list is: The Devil Wears Prada (I  know, I can't believe I haven't read it either), Educated, The Last Mrs Parrish, and Where the Crawdads Sing.
The Great Alone 

TWO. Whitening touch up pen. I have teeth whitening trays that I absolutely love but after spending $5000, basically my right arm, on a redo root canal (I don't recommend) my dentist gifted me these touch up pens...such a nice gift for stealing all my money and spending 8 hours in a dentist chair, ahah! But I am loving them. You just swipe on real quick for a quick touch up, you can't eat or drink for 30 minutes after but I love it! Such a great concept. 

THREE. Emoticon beads...Isabella saw this at Target and had to have it the other day. If your kiddos love to make bracelets and necklaces, run! I love that it came with a case to keep ALL the things organized because you know how much I LOVE organization. The beads were all over the place once we opened it so we used more of these containers to organize them insider her box! You might remember I used these to make hair accessory party favors for Isabella's party. We are obsessed and always have extras of these, these and these on hand for organizing. 

FOUR. Valentine's festivities. I hope you had a wonderful LOVE day yesterday, I worked yesterday so we did a lot of prepartying haha! The kids had a blast and loved their parties and sharing their Valentines.
Party fun with this sweet boy!

My mom used to get us Valentine's day gifts and they were some of my favorites....keeping the tradition alive with our kiddos!

FIVE. Knit dolls....it is no secret we are obsessed with both Cuddle + Kind and Blabla kids dolls. I am already eyeing a dog one for Addi for her Easter basket...decision, decisions. She is obsessed with her small Elle doll and loves dogs so I think she is ready for a big dog one:)

Also, loving this sweet little lamb!

Happy Friday friends!!
