FRIDAY FAVORITES #92.


Isn't it, though?!

We had a great week that was full of sunshine and HEAT!  It got up to almost 90 a couple of days this week which, in all honesty, was a bit much if you ask me.  (Not that anyone IS asking me.  But, ya know.  This is my blog and I've got to talk about something. 😉 )  This weekend is bringing us back down to the 60s with rain coming Saturday and then next week we'll be back in that upper 70s sweet spot that I love so much.


And speaking of our weekend, it's going to be a busy one!  Matthew has a baseball game tonight at the same time that Mason is heading to a birthday party.  Plus Craig's parents are arriving today as well.  Then Mason has an 8am baseball game on Saturday, another birthday party Saturday night and sometime in between all that we'll have Craig's brother joining us because on Sunday morning Craig is getting baptized!  My parents will be driving in Sunday morning for that and Craig's aunt and uncle will also be here too.  It's going to be a great weekend!

So I'll go ahead and call this Favorite #1.


You may be curious as to why Craig is being baptized now or what the deal is with that.  I get it.  I'd be curious too.  It's not my story to tell though and I respect that but I know he won't mind at all giving you an overview.  

Craig was raised Methodist and was christened as a baby but has never been baptized in what we Baptists call a "Believer's Baptism".  We've been going to a Baptist church since we were married (I was raised Baptist) and I was baptized as a kid after making a personal decision to follow Jesus Christ.  And even though Craig made a personal decision as well when he was in NFL Europe 17 years ago, he never followed that up with a baptism.  We never had a solid church home during those NFL years because...well for one, he worked most Sundays.  😉  We did attend a church there but most of our "church" came from the team Bible Studies.

And then we moved to Mckinney once he was semi-retired and tried out a couple of churches before we plugged into the First Mckinney where we are now.  And honestly, I just never really thought about him being formally baptized after it had been so long.  But lately he's been feeling a tug on his heart (something strong) and he's decided to rededicate his life and to follow that up with being baptized.  And I am so incredibly proud of him.  

He is surrounded by some strong Christian friends who are also proud of him for taking this "plunge" so to speak.  There may have even been a joke or two during Sunday School last week about having to lower the water level in the baptismal for the big guy.  😂  Craig asked Tyler, Brooke's husband, to be the one to baptize him which I think is really special.  Craig has been wanting to do this for so long and I'm just so happy he's finally going to do it.

Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. Colossians 2:7


So switching gears COMPLETELY, I've got to show y'all one of my favorite new Amazon finds!


I don't know about y'all but we have water bottles cluttering up our cabinets like crazy.  We keep them in one of the kitchen cabinets and when the boys are looking for that perfect one they end up knocking all the others over and causing an avalanche.  So when I saw these cool organizers I grabbed them!


You can use them on the counter, in the fridge, pantry or (like us) in the kitchen cabinet.  We keep ours in the lower cabinet so the boys can easily just grab and go.  (I took the pic on the counter because it was too dark to see anything in the cabinet.)


They come in a 2, 4 or 8 pack and I'm thinking of getting another 2 pack because they have at least 6 more green Gatorade bottles they also love that need a place to live.

It's the little things that make me happy.

You can find these HERE.


Last week I showed y'all a few of my newest additions to the shop...


...and this week I added more!


I love my mermaid tumblers so much!  The vinyl is that cool holographic type that changes color when you move it around.  The PERFECT mermaid vinyl.


You can find all of these (and so much more) in my Etsy shop! :)  Message me on Etsy if something ends up selling out and you'd like to see it come back!


It's just not Friday Favorites without a few Jane picks for the week, right?  I scooped up this cute camo and stripe tie front top yesterday for just $14.99!  This one has really great reviews (so no worries there!) and comes in either black or grey stripes.  Looks so cute with jean shorts and sandals.  Some reviews say it runs a tiny bit big so I went with the small.  This deal will end in 48 hours or less so grab this one now if you want it!



Speaking of cute shorts...


These are under $30 and are a great brand!


These and these are also really great options (with free shipping and returns!) if you're in the market for some new jean shorts.  And if you like them a little longer, check out these and these.

Another fun find!


 If you need a great crossbody bag that won't break the bank, these come in 8 colors and are only $14.99 too.  Plus they can be monogrammed!  This is a great price and a great deal!  

I've seen the black one in person before and it is so cute!  Perfect for vacations!  I always need a good crossbody for vacations.

Y'all know that Jane's accessories game is always strong so go HERE to check out allllll the awesome jewelry, bags, hats etc for the.best.deals.  

For more great deals, head on over to my Facebook Group!  I've posted a ton of them over there this week with more to come!  And be sure to check the newest announcement when you get there.  :)

Have an amazing weekend, girls!

Linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea!
