Friday Favorites

Fri-YAY! Fri-YAY! Fri-YAY!!!

Even though I’m a SAHM (Stay At Home Mama) of a toddler, I still get so excited for Fridays. I think it’s just the idea of a fun day with Pizza and beer for dinner, maybe a Friday night movie, and knowing we get to spend the weekend with John but I think I will always love Fridays!

And here we go Friday Favorites! YAY! So fun!

I know I’m probably killing you with the pool pictures but I have to say one of my favorites, has been Caroline and I’s bathing suits.

I got mine from Amazon and it has held up well. If you do purchase it wash it a couple of times before wearing. It stained my skin after I washed it but after two washes it was fine.

And Caroline’s bathing suits I have just LOVED! One of my sweet friends gave us a Ruffle Butts bathing suit and the other suit I got at Target.

If you’re looking for a girl toddler bathing suit check to see if the bottoms have buttons on it. I promise you’ll thank me when you go to change a wet baby’s water diaper! I’ll never buy a one piece while Caroline is wearing diapers without the buttons.

I asked a couple of weeks ago if you guys had any suggestions for a top coat nail polish that would help my nail polish last longer. And my sister’s friend said she uses Seche Vite. GAME CHANGER!!! This stuff is great and lasts! I mean like 2-3 days lasts but hey that is way better than less than a day! Thank you!

Every morning I read the Readings (Catholic Daily Mass Readings) for the day along with a devotional from And I don’t know what it is lately but Blessed Is She is really doing a great job with the devotionals. Maybe it’s the readings with the way they combine the devotions but they are touching me in a special way. I’m so grateful for their hard work and beautiful authors.

The other day Caroline and I met my Grandma for coffee and she, my grandma, brought along her baby book that she had been telling me about. And OMG, my great-grandmother did an amazing job keeping records of my Grandma. This book is such a treasure and has been so great to read.

I’ve been working to keep up with Caroline’s baby book and I only hope she’ll treasure it like my Grandma treasures hers. If you don’t have a baby book yet, this is the best one I’ve found. I really like it! Grab $10 off your purchase from Simplified with this link here!

My last but definitely not least favorite is all the support you guys have been giving me through comments, texts, emails, DMs, or just reading my blog–it’s meant a lot to me. Blogging is so fun but man it was hard to put myself out there and now that I’m doing it, I’m not so sure what I was afraid of. I guess it’s just the idea of being judged and letting others into our little world.

But in all honesty, thank you for your sweet, kind, and encouraging words. They have meant the world to me!

I hope you guys have a great Friday! Let me know what some of your favorites from this past week have been! I love hearing what others are enjoying! It’s the small things in life right?!
