Friday Favorites No. 44

It’s Friday!


And I’m linking up to talk about my Friday Favorites with Erika and Andrea!

Can you believe that September 1 is next week????

Are you putting up your Fall decor? I think I will wait till after Labor Day but I’m so ready for it to go up!

Speaking of fall decor…that is my first Friday Favs.

1.// Caroline Loves Fall Decor!!!

You guys we went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and Caroline loved all the fall decor soo soo much! It made my heart so happy. She was so excited! We picked out a couple little things to decorate her kitchen with. Truly a girl after my own heart. We were two peas in a pod. πŸ₯°

2.// Kayaking down the Weeki Wachee

There is no way I can leave out Kayaking down the Weeki Wachee last weekend with Mr. If you didn’t see my What’s Up Wednesday post you need to go see the beautiful pics from the river. I won’t put them all here. I will show you two though!

We had a such a great time! Thanks to my in-laws because they watched little miss.

3.// Making Bracelets

Aren’t these fun?! I love love love making jewerly! When I was in college I worked at a bead store and learned a lot about how to make jewerly. Unfortunately, I rarely use this knowledge that I gained.

Anywho, we made some fun simple bracelets yesterday after Hobby Lobby.

I even asked Caroline which name she would want? Caroline or Mama and she chose Mama! All the heart emojis in the world here! Gosh she is precious! πŸ₯°πŸ’—πŸ₯°

4.// Hair Cuts

We got our first haircuts since Covid hit! And it felt soo soo good!

Caroline got a little trim but was upset she didn’t have Elsa hair when she was done. So my sweet Aunt who is also my hair dresser blew out and straighten Caroline’s hair.

Sweet sweet Caroline. She was breaking our hearts and cracking us up at the same time!

5.// Caroline’s “Recital”

Caroline took summer ballet and it was one of the best choices we’ve made for her. She loved it so much! And when your kiddo loves something it makes that thing so great!

Since it was just a summer class they had a small little number they did for us at the end of class. And gosh it was so cute!

We didn’t get a great pic of her in her little costume because it was really that fast but we were so happy John could come and watch too!

That about wraps it up for my Friday Favorites! Lots of moments this week instead of products!

I hope you have the best Friday and don’t forget to link up too for your Friday Favorites if you’re a blogger and share with me in the comments what has been your favorite thing this week! I’d love to hear!

Happy Friday!!!

      That is soooo exciting Lindsay!!! I can’t wait to see your pics! We love our bracelets! Today Caroline wanted to make a Dada one for herself to wear too!

    Your little Caroline is so sweet! And, I’ve heard there’s good kayaking around here (we’re new to the area) and I’d love to try it.

    • Holley on September 2, 2020 at 4:58 am

      You should! It was beautiful! I’ve heard it is even better in March when the manatees are there! We’re hoping we can go again around that time of year!

    That kayaking trip you took look so amazing! What a great way to get out. Your daughter look so cute in her ballet costume. I am so glad you guys did that for her. I am kicking myself for not letting my son continue his ninja course. πŸ™ It’s so awesome that you gals got to go get a haircut too! I so need one and was literally telling my husband five minutes ago. My bangs are getting out of hand!! I hope your weekend is going well so far and happy Saturday!

      I was glad we did ballet too but I wasn’t sure how it was going to go. Thankfully the class was small and Caroline loved it! There always the next season for your son! πŸ™‚ It felt soooo good to have a hair cut! So thankful! Thanks for reading!! 😊
