Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! I hope everyone had a great week. Coming off of a short holiday week always makes a full week feel so much longer. This week was a little all over the place for us with extra doctors visits and trying to get caught up on things after coming back from the beach. I am drowning in laundry over here and feel like I need to take a day just to get everything in order. I also need to go through all of little nugget's things that he is outgrowing and decide what to keep for baby brother, what to donate, and what has seen its days. That in itself is always a project, and I'm not sure I'm ready to tackle it right now. My favorites will be a little random and all over the place, but I have a few, so I figured I'd share. 

1. Beach time: there's no way this wouldn't be my top favorite because I think one of my all time favorite things during the summer is being at the beach. Every time we go Eric jumps online to check out the housing market and we dream about buying a house there. We always say we would rent it out on the weeks we wouldn't be there and how we would make it work. To be honest, I don't think it would be too far fetched to try and make that happen within the next 10 years. The boys love being by the water, we love it, and I can just imagine how fun the summers would be. For now, we are thankful his parents have a place that we can stay at. You can read all about our 4th of July week fun and what we got into.

2. Free slurpee day: Eric reminded me that it was free slurpee day at 7-11 on 7/11. Luckily I pass one on my way home from picking up the boys at camp, so it was the perfect time to stop with them and enjoy a refreshing treat. I took a boomerang of us doing a cheers, you might have seen it on my insta stories (@beautifully_candid) but I forgot to actually take a pic. Oh well, we're focusing on living more in the moment so a screenshot of the video totally works, right?!

3. Garden update: to tell you I am so happy that our garden isn't a total flop this year is an understatement. It's such a great feeling to eat your own vegetables! We had a ton of green beans ready to be picked when we came back from the shore and the boys had such a good time picking them all. It made my job easier too, haha. They don't even care if they are cooked or not. They will open the fridge and grab a handful of them and just start munching away. Our zucchinis on the other hand aren't looking too hot, but maybe we'll master them next year. The boys also built this scarecrow/robot/tin man looking thing with my mom and made it all out of recycled products. I think he looks pretty good and is hopefully keeping the critters away.

4. Shark party: I can't believe that little nugget will be three in a month. Seriously time is just flying. With everything going on in our lives we still want to have a great party for him but are going to keep it small with family and a few friends from his class. We decided to just have it at out our house. At this age, as fun as it is to go over the top for them, they really only care about running around with their friends and if there are cupcakes. And a bounce house. His one request is to have a bounce house, so we're working on that. If you're a parent or have small children in your family, then you probably know all about the baby shark song (doo doo, doo doo doo doo). Sorry if I just got it stuck in anyone's head because, Lord help us. Well, he loves that song, and just lights up when it comes on. It only makes sense to have a shark party for him, but as he would say, a nice shark party not a scary one. I have been turning to where else, Pinterest (if we're not following each other there let's connect) for all the inspirational ideas and I think I have a good starting point.

5. Baby boy: if you caught my post yesterday then you know a bit about what's going on with baby boy. It's not always easy to share when things aren't going as planned and life kind of kicks in. I am so appreciative of the love and support from all of you. It truly means a lot to me and more than you will ever know.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Here's where you can find me linking. Speaking of link ups, we have our monthly girl chat next Thursday where we'll be sharing our favorite summer recipes. We'd love for you to join us!
