Friday Favorites

It's been two complete weeks since we've had all three of our kids under one roof. While it's nice to get a breather every now and then, I'm really looking forward to having everyone together!  I just have to wait one more week...  And, since our kiddos have been here, there, and yonder, so has my brain!  This week you get another dose of random Friday Favorites!  Enjoy!
While I'm Waiting...Friday Favorites

BLOG HOPS!!
On Monday, I joined eight other bloggers in sharing encouragement for your summer! There is a little bit of everything in these posts and we hope they encourage and inspire you!  
This list of ideas was definitely my FAVORITE this week!
A round up of 9 posts of encouragement for your summer!

EXTRAORDINARY DAYS!
I'm a little biased, but my FAVORITE post this week was Shelly's National Days of Summer.  She not only created a list but also gave super ideas on how you could celebrate turning ordinary days into extraordinary memories!

CRAFTS!
Crafting is definitely a FAVORITE of mine and Shelly's post reminded us to celebrate Flag Day!  Holden and I were excited to find this fun patriotic craft - perfect for celebrating Flag Day!  Bonus that we can leave them out through the 4th of July!

Here's our finished products!

BEFORE/AFTERS!
While I'm Waiting...Friday Favorites
Even though we aren't completely finished with our most recent projects, this updated area is my absolute FAVORITE!!!  Before we had devices on every available counter space and the wires were driving.me.crazy!  Now they have a designated space and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!  My hubby would be my FAVORITE if we would wrap up this little project! ;)

Mike installed electrical outlets with USB chargers - these are a FAVORITE too!

If you are looking for a charging station, I highly recommend this one!  It was a little more than what I had planned on spending for something like this but I feel I got what I paid for.  Plus - no.more.cords on the counter tops!

SUMMER DRESSES!
It has gotten H-O-T in Texas and one of my favorite things to wear when it gets unbearable is dresses.  Sounds a little weird but there's something about an outfit that just barely touches you anywhere except for the tops of your shoulders!  I ordered this dress from Old Navy this week and can guarantee you will see me wearing it on repeat!  And, you know what's my FAVORITE part?!  It has pockets!!! #givemeallthepockets!

And, there you have it!  A few of my random Friday Favorites!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day and a weekend filled with all your FAVORITES!

Gig 'em and God bless!

  1. Thanks so much for the shoutout friend! And I'm so glad you linked the charging station as I've been meaning to ask about it...ordered and can't wait as I have a little idea for creating a charging station in this wreck. Can't believe we started out so strong and haven't seen each other since....we have to do better.

  2. I love your charging station! I bought a thing several months ago and we use it when traveling. It is a USB holder - charger that has 6 USB outlets in it and then plugs into the wall! Perfect for just even Tony and I because I always have my iPad, my kindle and then 2 phones and 2 golf GPS to charge! (ps I love the beer in the before pic- thanks for always keeping it real.....) Have fabulous weekend! We are at our Happy Place aka the beach house and I will be seeing all my kids this weekend!

    1. Thanks, Kim! It's truly the little things! I would grumble every time I saw cords and devices all over the counters. Now I walk by and smile! :) You might need to send me a link for your traveling USB holder...sounds awesome! Hehe - about the beer...I didn't even notice it till I got ready to post. By then we had already repainted. Oopsie! Absolutely trying to keep it real! Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend surrounded by your favorite people!

  4. Fun post! Love your new favorite space/place in your house. Electronics do seem to begin to take over in different places in the house.

    1. They truly, truly do, Pam! I'm still working on the KonMari method while organizing and de-cluttering our house and being intentional about where things live has truly been a life changer! Before it would be wherever there was a spot. Now, everyone knows exactly where they go and those small things make for a much happier mama! ;) Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. I love your "home is where the wifi is" sign! I saw that on your Instagram earlier today and fell in love with it! Your charging station area looks so cute. I agree, charging wires make such a mess. Love how you organized it!

  7. Ah the new charging station area is fantastic!!! Love that! And I'm with you - in the summer I'm all about dresses. They are so much easier to wear than shorts, I think! Hope you're off to a great start this week!
