Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites {4/7/16}

Happy Friday! We are wrapping up our staycation of a Spring Break and it has been so relaxing and fun. We didn’t do anything major, but we have spent lots of time playing games, playing outside, riding bikes, the kids slept in and I sipped coffee and watched the morning news each day, and it has been so good! Without further ado, here are my other favorites from this week…


When the weather warms up I love an iced coffee and this one is perfect. It is vegan friendly and amazing. I love how it tastes. This is a great afternoon pick me up or snack.


Did anyone stock up on candles? Bath and Body Works candles are always a favorite of mine. With that being said, I am never going to spend over $20 for one of their candles…or even $15. I was really kicking myself the other day for not stocking up on candles last weekend when they were on sale for $12. Then this little e-mail arrived in my inbox and Mama stocked up! I cannot wait to get summer scents.


I have moved my blog work to a new location this week. I have loved sitting outside and sipping coffee in the morning and working on my blog in the back yard. Computer, check. Coffee, check. Warm blanket, check. The weather has been amazing this week and we have spent a lot of time outside.


Today the kids are going to my aunts for a day with their cousins. I have the entire day to myself and cannot wait! I am going to get Easter basket supplies and then come home and watch Netflix. All. Day.


Brandon built my garden boxes. Now we are working on filling them. We start planting at the end of April or beginning of March and I cannot wait to have raised beds this year. We have had a garden since we got married (almost 12 years) but this is our first time with raised beds.

I hope you have all had a wonderful week. What are your plans for the weekend? We have soccer and baseball this weekend and other than that, no big plans. Have a great Friday and happy weekend!

  3. We got home from softball last night and I completely forgot about the flash sale!!! I woke up this morning and I could have kicked myself for forgetting to stock up on candles. Now I will hope that I get a good coupon so that I can go buy a some new candles. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Heather, try the coffee! It is so good in the afternoon for a little pick-me-up! I love it. And I don’t feel guilty about it 🙂 Our beds are 10′ by 4′ each. I think they will be the perfect size for full grown plants. 🙂

  4. This post is FULL of happy and I love it! Yay for the garden beds. We should team up to do a post together on our gardens later in the season! Yay for blogging outside, when and if my schedule ever gets calmed down I hope to do that. Right now I feel like a vampire blogger – in the wee hours and in the dark LOL! I’m so glad your spring break has been great. Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. I would LOVE to do that with you Amanda! I love gardening! Here I was soaking up the sunshine and it started snowing here last night! WHAT?!?! Some places got a couple inches of snow!

  5. I am so glad you had a great week and man if I had a laptop I would move outside too! Yay for a day to do errands and whatever you want alone!!!

    1. Erin, it was so nice to have such great weather this week, but good ol’ Washington, we got snow last night! I love moving outside to work whenever I can 🙂 Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  6. I love that you were able to blog outside. I can’t wait until the weather gets a bit nicer, and I may have to try that. Hope you’ve had a great weekend!

  7. That coffee looks SO good. I will have to keep my eyes open for it. LOVE those garden boxes too. I have had raised beds for about 5 years now and LOVE them. Although, with a house going on the market this year I am not so sure I’ll be planting them.
