Friday Favorites April 11th



Welcome back to another Friday Favorites! We have a jam-packed weekend ahead, including a girls night, Avery’s first soccer game, Palm Sunday at church, birthday parties and MORE. We would also love to attend our town’s Easter egg hunt and even squeeze in some tile shopping for our kitchen backsplash. And come to think of it, I would also love to organize Emmy’s closet, which is a total disaster. Our weekend to-do lists are always a mile long, but as long as we get a few things checked-off, mixed with a little family fun, I’ll count it as a win!

1: This Week on the Blog- I was a little quiet on the good ole’ blog this week, to be honest I’m pretty sure I had some version of the flu last week and it has kicked my booty! I am finally feeling better, but only managed to get a few posts up this week.

2: Operation Break Emerson of the Pacifier- The time has come, our sweet girl is getting a visit from the “boppy” fairy this weekend and to be totally honest it’s breaking my Mama heart! This is one of the hardest transitions for me, I know she loves them SO much and they bring her SO much comfort, but the longer we allow her to have them, the harder it’s going to be for her to break the habit. Plus, girlfriend is THREE! I’m planning on gathering up all the pacifiers Saturday morning and replacing them with a present from the fairy, the fairy will have magically turned her “boppies” into a present and I’m just praying it goes smoothly! I know the first few days will be pretty rough, but I know our sweet girl can do it, now as far as I go… please send all the positive vibes, prayers and maybe a bottle of wine or two. 

3: Mom Style: Short Edt.- One, please don’t pay attention to my pale, pale, legs, it’s been a long winter here in Chicago and my poor legs need some sunshine or a spray tan ASAP! I have been on the hunt for new shorts and Target was super successful for me. All three pairs of shorts are from the Universal Thread line, fit true to size, have great stretch and actually cover your booty. I was having the hardest time finding shorts that I could actual bend over in when out and about with my girls, while also not feeling like I was wearing Bermuda shorts and of course, you can’t beat the price, all three pairs are under $20!

4: Five Photos From This Week

Our little monkey, always jumping on her bed. 

This little lady LOVES wearing sunnies!

Mom’s side of the couch = ALL the people… Dad’s side of the couch = Dad, do you know what I mean!? And Dad would LOVE the cuddles, while Mom could use a little personal space here and there 😉 

Matching swimmers for swim lessons this week, these little cuties were so happy to be twins!

Couch cuddles with my big and little, so thankful for moments like these!

5: Easter Brunch- Scott and I are so excited to be hosting Easter this year, we started planning out our menu and can’t wait to spend time with our family. We decide to make pork tenderloin, roasted vegetables and home made mac n’ cheese (via this recipe).  I have also been busy pinning some simple, yet festive tablescapes, here are a few of my favorites via Pinterest!
