Friday Favorites #66.

Today starts a fun weekend for us!  Our summer has been pretty lame tame so far but all of our fun is all crammed into the next few weeks.

This morning we're leaving for Texarkana to visit my parents and I also get to see one of my childhood besties and her new baby boy!  We've also got fun with cousins, swimming, and bowling on the docket but then we're leaving Saturday afternoon to head back to Mckinney.  It's going to be a quick trip because on Sunday morning we are heading to the lake with friends!  It is going to be a jam-packed weekend.

But before we do all of that, I wanted to share some of my favorites from lately and y'all...there are so many!!  Between the NSale and Amazon Prime day, I am up to my elbows in favorites.  I'll save some for later but here are a few that I just love!

And as always, I'm linking up with Erika, Narci, and Andrea!

I've been meaning to post this one for awhile and just keep forgetting!

Friends, my kiddos latched on to this journal so quickly!  It's a 3-year journal and every day there is one question that they answer.  And since it's a 3-year journal, they'll get to see how their answers change as they grow.  Matthew (my 10-year-old) is especially into this.  He keeps it next to his bed and every night before bed, he fills in his answer.

I loved this answer...#meanmommy

I love that it's not a big commitment.  I feel like if I were to have given them a regular journal and a whole page of empty lines, they would rarely use it.  But the little prompt at the top and then just 3 empty lines is so manageable for them.

You can get the journal HERE and I can't recommend it enough!  Definitely a keepsake!

I ordered these black/white checkered Vans from the Nordstrom Sale and I LOVE them!!  I've never owned any Vans before so I wasn't sure what size to get.  I swear I'm a size 7.25.  ;)  I'm always either a 7 or a 7.5 and never know which way it's going to go.  In these, I definitely needed the 7 over the 7.5.  I felt they ran a little big.

The 7s were perfect and so comfy!  And my jeans are HERE. I also love them!!  I'm 5.5 and they hit perfectly at my ankle.  They don't have many sizes in stock as I'm typing this but keep checking back!

But back to the shoes.  ;)  Since I'm a jeans and tee kinda girl, these will go with a lot.

Did I mention they are also under $40??  I'm hoping they restock sizes soon!  (I've got a size 7.5 that'll be on its way back to the store soon!)

I also ordered these earrings during the sale and forced myself to only choose one color.  So I went with black/gold because I figured it would go with more.  The pictures don't do them justice.  They are a great size and just beautiful!!  

I haven't had a chance to wear them yet but as soon as I actually do my hair and makeup I'll snap a picture with them on.  ;)

Aren't they pretty!!?!  I know I told myself I'd only choose one color but I ended up back online and used a Nordstrom Note on a pair of silver and aqua ones to knock them down to around $22!  

The aqua ones should arrive today.  I can't wait.  I'm such a sucker for bold earrings.

My Etsy shop is back in full swing but will close up again early next week so that I can finish up all current orders before we leave for our beach vacay in a couple of weeks.  So if you've had your eye on something, get it now!

Shop HERE!

These felt tip pens are just my all-time favorite.  I use them for everything.  They are laying all over our house.  I know they are also favorites for teachers and all you planner girls!  You can get this 12pack of all different colors HERE right now for just over $8!  A month ago, they were $22.50!  

These are perfect teacher gifts for back-to-school!

Happy Friday, y'all!  Hope you have a great weekend!  See you back here next week!



  1. I love Flair pens and use them all the time. They are my favorite. I love those earrings. That journal would be so good for my kids. I like that it is short and sweet but gives them daily practice. Happy Friday!

  2. Flair Pens are the best!! Great deal!

  3. Not mentioned in this post - that L'Oreal mask you talked about? I AM SO HOOKED.

    1. Ha! Isn't it awesome!?! I need to try the other masks in that line. There are so many! I think I'll order one tonight (thank you, Amazon) and see if I can review it for y'all on Friday.


I love hearing from you! Drop a comment below!
