A few Friday Favorites

Last weekend we were on a camping trip for all of three days and it has taken me a full five days (and counting) to recover from it. I don’t know how it’s possible, but whenever we have a super busy and fun weekend, it takes me the entire next week to tackle my ignored to-do list. And now it’s Friday and I’ve barely put a dent in it! Sigh.

Of course it doesn’t help that we’re in nap chaos over here. More on that later, though. Suffice it to say that bedtime has gotten a whole heck-of-a-lot better (YAY!!!) but naptime is gone. GONE.

Let’s change the subject to a more positive one and get to Friday Favorites, because I’m linking up with Amanda today!

Some of my favorite things this week!

PNW scenery will forever be one of my favorite things.

Friday Favorites:

+ I love when Anthro has additional sales on their sales so I’ll definitely be buying some things during their ‘30% off of sale items’ event happening right now. I bought this dress the other weekend and it’s one of my new favs for a summer date night. One thing I won’t be buying… these. WHY ARE THESE BACK IN STYLE?! I can only assume it’s because there are women who never wore them originally and consider them ‘vintage’ whereas I consider them ‘junior high mistakes.’ Just watch, I’ll probably be wearing them again in two years. It takes me about that long to get into anything trendy. Moving on.

+ I swear that baby gear now is so much more awesome than it was when Clara was born (a whole three years ago). Or, most likely, I now know so much more about gear because I’m surrounded by moms who talk about this sort of thing! Anyways, we just bought the Lotus Travel Crib and I am really sad I didn’t have it three years ago. I’m hoping we get some travel use out of it over the summer! If you travel a lot, check it out. It is light, easy to assemble, and the zipper makes it super easy to comfort a fussy baby at night without awkwardly bending over the crib.

+ I recently started following @TheHomeEdit on Instagram and ohmygosh my whole world has changed. I’m not an organized person (when it comes to my house), but now I want to be. I don’t know what it is about their pictures and Instastories, but whatever they’re doing, they’re doing it well because I want to go to The Container Store and buy all of the things and label them all of the ways. Guys, seriously, the other day I organized my refrigerator. Tim was in shock when I told him and I think he likes this new version of me.

+ This new season of OITNB – have you finished it yet? I fondly remember just a few short years ago when I was able to binge watch an entire season in ONE DAY. It happened, truly. Now it’s taking me weeks and weeks and I think I’m only on episode 5. Sigh. Don’t tell me how it ends, but is the whole season good? I love it so far!

OK, that’s all for now. I’m about 30 minutes past my bedtime so it’s time to sign off and leave the rest of my favorites for a different post! (Although, as I type this I’m hiding in my room to avoid a kiddo who is up and wandering the house because said child-who-shall-remain-nameless decided to skip her second nap today and is completely confused about what is going on in life. Maybe it’s best to stay hiding out in here…)

TGIF! What are your plans for the long weekend?!

  1. That Instagram account is like soothing for any organization loving soul.

  2. Lauren Harrelson says:

    That instagram account could lead to serious bank account damage….but think how pretty everything will look!

  3. Based on all your pictures and adventures I’m pretty convinced that the PNW is nothing more than gorgeous rows of produce with mountain-scape backgrounds and rocky shorelines with crystal blue water.
    Annnnd now I’m obsessed with that Instagram *all the heart-eye emojis*

    Happy weekend!! Long summer holiday weekends are my favorite! I’m on episode two of this newest OITNB season… we only watch it when we work out so it’s slow going haha! Here’s to smooth bedtimes and rough afternoons with no naps! Living the dream!

    • Lisa says:

      Ok this is SUCH a belated comment BUT did you finish the season?! I haven’t yet and need to restart it because it’s been so long and I’ve forgotten everything… TV watching is a lot harder than it used to be!

  5. Oh man, SERIOUSLY?! I JUST threw out a scrunchie like that that I’ve had since I was like, 8, because I thought it was totally ridiculous that I still had it and couldn’t think of any reason why I’d ever want it again. Figures that I just wasn’t paying attention and they’ve come back in style when I wasn’t watching! Alas.

    • Lisa says:

      You still had a scrunchie!? That is a vintage item you should have treasured forever, evidently. Hahahaha! Now you’ll have to rebuy it for $5 so you can be on trend 😉

    I told you the OITNB season was good! I loved the whole thing.

    • Lisa says:

      I haven’t watched an episode since I wrote this post. I now need to basically rewatch them all again and continue on… The Bachelorette is taking up all of my TV watching time!

    The home edit is my favorite. The first thing I did was buy some clear containers for the fridge and they made me soooo happy. And I can’t even deal with the “scrunchies” – they are all over NYC and I just giggle and roll my eyes.

    • Lisa says:

      People are actually wearing scrunchies?! I haven’t seen them on anyone here… just at Anthro! Also, I need to buy clear containers for the fridge but I just hate how expensive they are… I just need to do it.
