Happy Friday, y'all!  We are checking off Week 1 of summer break!  This week the boys had baseball camp Monday through Wednesday and baseball games on Wednesday and Thursday nights which kept us doing just enough to keep away the stir-crazy.  

We are all looking forward to next week though when their neighborhood buddies are back from vacation.  Thank goodness for baseball camp or all the "I'm boooooorrrreeeddd.  No one's hooooommmmeeeee." whining would have driven me batty.  At least with them being gone from 1-4:30 every day, it made it more bearable.  But listen up neighbors.  I need y'all to stagger your trips so everyone is not out of town all at the same time again.  #pleaseandthankyou ;)

And I've seen this meme all over IG this week and it is spot on.

As long as they clean up after themselves and the likelihood for bloodshed is minimal...I'll allow it. 😂 

Anyway, today is Friday Favorites day and as always, I'm linking up with Erika, Narciand Andrea to share a few things that made my list this week!

Starting with...

Y'all know my obsession with Jane tees.  I can't get enough.  All the ones I've purchased from Jane except for one have been the soft Bella Canvas brand like the ones shown below.  They are great quality but at a sale price and I love them.  Just remember that all of Jane's deals are only 72 hours or until they sell out.  So don't wait if you see something you like!  You'll kick yourself later on!

Here are some of my current Jane picks...

As a boy mom, I was drawn to these.  ;)  "Less drama than girls, but harder to keep alive"?  #nailedit

And who else was a Saved by the Bell fan?  That Bayside Tigers tee on the right will be finding its way into my drawer very soon.  (Although to keep it authentic, I'm going to make sure to order it in either maroon or grey.  The  Bayside Tigers were not blue.)

Jane also has home decor, kids stuff, gifts...lots of fun stuff like this funny bathroom sign for only $11.99!  Jesus and germs are everywhere, y'all.

And this one makes me laugh.  I need to make a few of these and put one in every bathroom in our house.

Random find of the week.  This 36 pack of Cheez-Its popped up on Amazon for a little over $8 a box so I grabbed one.  Between my two boys and all the neighborhood kids, we go through a lot of snacks.  So this will serve us well.  Also, my boys pointed out that the individual bags are actually bigger than the ones we get from the store too. 🤷‍♀️ So they thought that was awesome.

In case you missed it, I posted my second round of Q&As in my Amanda Answers series on Tuesday!  

I loved seeing all the questions that were sent in will do my best to get the rest of them answered soon!  If you have any more, let me know! I may open it up on IG again today so make sure you're following me--@amandanall.

You can find Part 1 HERE and Part 2 HERE.

And speaking of posts from this week, my May Book Review was yesterday!  I read four really great chick-lit type books but each one had it's own little something special.

For all my previous book reviews, click HERE.  So many good ones to add to your summer reading (or listening) list!

I don't show a lot of pictures of my craft room because it's always a hot mess.  I've got all these big plans to make it super cute like painting the walls a pretty seafoam color, adding more shelves, pictures, etc but I have to actually WORK in here.  So it's been hard to find time for that.

But I'm giving you a glimpse today because I know there are a lot of you who are also crafters and are looking for a way to neatly store your vinyl. So I wanted to show you what's been working so well for me.  I found these wire baskets on Amazon and they have been the best solution to this problem!  I just added a 5th basket for my "mermaid" vinyl last week.

I keep them right above my Silhouette machine so they are easily accessible and keep a couple of baskets below them for scraps.  

The baskets would be so great for a lot of things though.  Magazines, school papers, office supplies, toys.  But for me, they are keeping all my pretty vinyl nice and neat. :) 

And speaking of my vinyl, look at the pretty things I can make with it...

Take a look at all the cute signs, drinkware, coozies and more in my Etsy shop!

Have the best weekend, friends!



  1. I love that wire basket storage idea! I have three drawers full of Vinyl and so far it's working for me but if I buy even one more roll I'm outta room. LOL. I just finished reading Sunset Beach a week or two ago; I though it was cute but liked her book The Weekenders so much better.
