Can I get an amen? We made it through another week of packed lunches, carpool, and short (or no) naps. You deserve a prize. Or at least some wine.
But you can start your fabulous Friday with some fun Friday Favorites (say that 5 times fast). It’s the weekly link up with Narci, Erika, and Andrea where we share what we are loving this week. Let’s jump in!
The Dust Buster.
Yes, it deserves a line by itself. This probably officially makes me lame to admit it, but I love this thing. I had one years ago before kids and never used it. Why would I need an easy to use device that could pick up smashed goldfish and cheerios before now?! I was over at my friend Noelle’s house a few weeks ago and she went and grabbed her dust buster and gave it to her two year old to vacuum up his own mess. WHAT. Stop. I legitimately picked up my phone and Amazon-primed (that’s a verb, right?) that thing right away. And now I’m obsessed. If you don’t have one, get one right now. Here’s the link to the one I have. I now vacuum with my big Dyson vacuum once a week, and use the dust buster to spot clean during the rest of the week. Easy-peasy. And like I said, the kids can use it. I mean, come on.
The Popcast! You know I am into podcasts if you’ve been following me for any amount of time. If you like pop-culture and you like to laugh, go subscribe right now (click here to learn how to listen)!Hysterical. I crack up laughing in my van by myself (yes I’m that person). In a recent episode they talked about random confessions from their listeners. SO FUNNY. It’s episode 139 if you want to find it. Or click here.
I got this super cute necklace this week! The fabulous Randee, who I met through my sister, has created a gorgeous line called Of the Earth Jewelry. First of all, her stuff is so pretty! And secondly, I love to support women starting and running their own businesses! Such a cool thing to see how different people use their creativity. I love the necklace because it goes with everything, it layers perfectly with my favorite stella & dot necklace, and it’s unique! She puts out new pieces all the time, so check her out!
This quote…“someone else’s opinion of you is none of your business.”
Y’ALL! So good. I heard Rachel Hollis from The Chic Site say this after her therapist said it to her. And I just want to give a huge “HELL YES” to this. You were created with purpose and intention, and your identity comes from Who created you…not from anyone or anything else. Stop worrying about what others are going to think of you. Just do you. Be who you are. It’s ok. It’s good, even. You will be at a much better place in life when you are not trying to live from or for others’ opinions *mic drop*.
BarkTHINS. So much YUM! But also so much trouble because I ate a whole bag in 2 days (oops). I really love chocolate covered pretzels, but wheat is not really my friend. So this is an awesome alternative. And dark chocolate is healthy, right? And almonds are too. Perfect. I love this stuff so much, but I can’t ever buy it again because I.can’t.stop.eating. So go get a bag and eat some for me!!
I hope you Friday is as fabulous as you are, and your weekend is relaxing. And that maybe you even get to sleep in! Share some of your favorite things in the comments, and use the links at the top to check out some other awesome mamas’ favorite things!
Love you ladies! xoxo
