Friday Favorites: 5/22/15

So, I really can’t complain about a long week this week. . . I took Monday off to spend extra time with my Dad at the hospital and Luke and I had the day off on Tuesday to have some extra time together. So, really, this was a short work week for me.  . . but still, I am super happy it’s Friday! And Memorial Day weekend! Whoop. Whoop. Smile 

Here are the little things that made me smile this week. . . because life is all about the little things, right?


Fro yo dates.


Pop Sugar Must Have Box. My sister, Jenny, gave me some money to spend on a Must Have box for Christmas. . . and I decided that my birthday month was a good time to try it out!



Salt water taffy. Necklace.


Vase. Shave cream.


Dry shampoo. And (unpictured) a beach towel.


Overall, I was a little meh about the box. I do like the shave cream – smells amazing. And I have never tried dry shampoo before, but OMG – that stuff is amazing! But, overall, super fun to come home to a surprise box and try new things! Thanks Jenny. Smile 

Luke and Mommy date. They have an awesome kids club at the local grocery store where Luke can get a cookie, piece of cheese and a piece of fruit every time we go grocery shopping. And they happen to have a Caribou inside the store. Win win.


Oreos for days. . . The last time Laura came over to watch Lukie, she updated my grocery list. And the number one thing – Oreos. So, I made sure to keep her happy. Smile 


Lukie picking flowers for me. Heart melted.


Bedtime stories and puppy snuggles.


What are you loving this week??

And what’s up for the weekend?? No real plans for us. Hopefully a trip home to see Dad. A trip up to the Lake. And grilling some good food!

Linking up with Friday fun with both Heather and Clare!

  5. That’s a bummer that your Popsugar box was so Meh. I agree with you; I would not have been that impressed either.
