Friday Faves

Happy Friday Friends! Thanks for visiting my blog today! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend planned! The hubs is off this Friday off, so we get a three-day weekend! I am pumped! We are off to the owl cafe today. I will report back on it Monday. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Here are some of my Friday favorites…..I would love to hear some of yours as well!



This new(ish) Loft dress from thredUP and


this Nike tank. Both look and fit like brand-new but a faction of the price!

Primal Kitchen Whey Protein

I am normally not a huge smoothie person….I like my food food! Lately though, with this crazy heat (index of 120 degrees today) I am pretty into them. This Primal Kitchen Whey Protein Powder is super tasty, has 20g of protein plus probiotics.

Japanese Bathrooms

JapanI swear I could do a whole post on the bathrooms in Japan. It is one of my favorite things about living here. Most of them have these little sinks and Mason loves them! He loves to wash his hands and loves doing things all on his own, so put them together and he is a happy baby boy!

Dogeared “Maya Angelou” Necklace


I ordered this necklace as part of the Amazon prime sale. I actually ordered two; one for myself and one for a friend. It is beautiful and the perfect size.

Fresh Garden Veggies


Our garden is out of control (in totally a good way)! I love all the fresh cucumbers, okra, and tomatoes. I am eating a cucumber or two with every meal lately.

Beautycounter’s New Hair Care Collections


Why safer haircare?

Traditional brands not only contain harsh chemicals that have a health impact but they also strip and damage hair.

Did you know it can take up to 10 washes to removes the silicone from your hair after using traditional conditioners?

All the products contain Beautycounter’s Next Generation Hair Foam Technology. So, you get the deep clean and lather from the traditional brands without all the harsh chemicals.

All of the new Beautycounter Collections are:

Mineral Oil-Free
Contains No Synthetic Fragrances 

Around the Web

Why Good Moms Have Clean Floors– I love this post so much! Yes, I’ve been know to stop cooking to read a book in the kitchen floor and it often takes a long time to fold clothes because we spend time playing. I do not let the house get dirty though. I want to honor my husband and should Mason responsibility even at 1.

Lenny and Larry’s Copycat Cookie

I just love the royals! Like seriously how perfect?!

This is great news for moms!

Questions: What are you loving? Favorite beauty product? How much do you love the royals?

Have a great weekend!

    I need to try that protein powder! I’ve been looking for a good option that doesn’t have that “protein powder taste”…it overpowers everything!
    Love your Thred Up finds! That LOFT dress is perfect 🙂
    And I love the necklace – such a great reminder to be thankful for the life you have and to make the most of it.
    Have a good (long) weekend with your family!!

      It is a good one. It really does not have a strong taste.

    Oh my gosh, your son at the sink is so cute! He looks like a mini adult which probably makes you a little sad to see him growing up. Enjoy your weekend!

    I’ve been to Japan myself a few times and I agree about the bathrooms – they are so nice! I wish bathrooms in America could take some inspiration from them!

      Totally agree! I honestly don’t need all the fancy buttons though =)

    I really like Beautycounter. They have great products and a worthy mission. That Maya Angelou necklace is wonderful! I missed the prime sale but am a fan of Angelou’s work. What a good find!
