Happy Friday! We’ve had a crazy busy week over here and I’m honestly looking forward to a slow, relaxing weekend – anyone else feel the same? I thrive off the “on the go” lifestyle, but it starts to wear me down after a while! I wanted to pop in and share a few of my Friday favorites with you guys since I haven’t had much time to blog this week.
This Week’s Friday Favorites
I can’t believe summer is officially here – at least when it comes to school. I’m prepared for my 3 year old to be incredibly bored without seeing her MDO friends, so I’ve been trying to line up some fun things for the summer like dance camps, bible school, playdates, music class and of course, an extended beach trip to visit my parents at some point this summer! The biggest challenge is trying to find a balance between going out and doing things and staying home and taking it easy. My girls seem to do best when we get out of the house once a day but not doing TOO much where it makes them cranky. If you have any great summer activity ideas, please send them my way! PS – did you see the teacher gift I threw together yesterday? So easy to do! I used this printable and added my daughter’s name in Photoshop.
2 // Brahmin Memphis Launch Party
I was so fortunate to attend Brahmin’s launch party at The Second Line last night and learn more about the collection headed to the new Memphis store (soft opening is today at The Shops at Saddle Creek!). From the signature cocktail (Memphis Mule) to the gorgeous tablescapes, beautiful handbags and some of Memphis’ most talented bloggers and influencers, no detail was left unturned at this event. I was gifted this gorgeous Brahmin Lane Crossbody and can’t wait to wear it – when I’m not out with the kids, of course, because I definitely need my giant Neverfull bag to carry all of their stuff!
I’ve raved about these shorts before but I finally snagged them last month when they were on sale! They’re so comfortable and lightweight, which is perfect for the hot summer months (which has already begun here in Memphis!). Right now, LOFT is having a 30% off + an extra 10% using code LOVEMOM – and they still have these shorts available in white! Grab a pair before they sell out.
Did you catch my post last week featuring these Paleo Banana Nut pancakes? These would make a great Mother’s Day breakfast if you’re trying to stay on track with your healthy eating but want to indulge a bit! They really taste like banana bread without the guilt 🙂
That’s all for this week’s Friday favorites – I hope y’all have a fantastic weekend and hope it’s warm where you are!
