Friday Favorites

Our neighborhood put on quite the show of fireworks this fourth of July. A got to see huge fireworks, floating lanterns, and extensive sparklers all from the comfort of our driveway (which was well out of the zone of firework displaying).

Just in case you were wondering how big they were, this was one of the smaller ones:


And since the boys stayed up until almost nine they of course slept in until the late hour of 7 a.m.! Living the dream, people! HA!

Anyway, here are some of my favorites from the week:

I went shopping with my sister today and picked up this book, these coasters, and this shirt from Anthropologie.

I am always looking for new treat recipes for A and I to make and this cookbook looks like a great choice.

I am almost done re-doing the boys’ bathroom and then I am moving on to the laundry room. I have been searching for navy and coral accents for the laundry room decor and after seeing this room now I am thinking about also adding some copper.

How to make a house to a home.

I don’t know why, but I think this little card would be hilarious to frame for J’s room.

So many s’mores.

Barbecue chopped chicken salad.

I have been searching for a new nail polish color and this one is on my list.

J is tall. So tall that he reached his tree canvas and took it down. I had to move it but now every morning he sadly pats his wall and says “dat, dat?” I kept trying to think of what I could put there instead (high up, of course!) and then the idea of a fabric banner jumped into mind (and by jumped I mean I have seen it EVERYWHERE). I found this DIY tutorial that I am planning on following and I am off to find fabric!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Thanks for sharing the nail polish link!!! I think I’m going to try “Rock the Boat,” though I may be too old now to pull that color off!

  2. Oh I love that color! And you are so not too old to wear it! I think it’s a great choice for summer!
