Today is Friday the 13th and if you know me, you know that I love the number 13. It has always been my number and for some weird reason, it always seems to find me in happy situations. To celebrate this Friday the 13th, I thought I’d share with you 13 things that make me happy today…
Nothing says summer like blowing water at each other through a pool noodle. These two kids crack me up constantly. The three of us went to the pool on Tuesday and they had more fun doing this than swimming :).
Tonight, Kensington and I are getting our nails done. This is one of my favorite little things to do with my sweet girl.
I told you last week that now is the time to look at watches! So many watches are 40% off right now! That’s a crazy good price! I think I might actually start doing some Christmas shopping. This would make a great gift at a great price…and I’ll be thankful in December that I did it!
I came home from the grocery store the other evening and saw my whole world on one bike riding down the street. The kids were in the buggy and the dog was on there too. My whole world…on one bike.
The kids and I bought one of these Zoku Quick Pop Makers on Wednesday for some summer fun and homemade popsicles…and so far, we love it! I will post some of our creations on Mix and Match Mama this summer.
I love these solid scarves that are on sale right now 2 for $38 (and come in 30 different colors!). I went to the mall on Monday and bought the kelly green and khaki colors (but it was a hard decision because I wanted them all!).
The first two are the ones I bought…but I really loved the other 28 choices too! These are light enough for spring and summer but many of the colors are dark enough to wear through fall. I can’t wait to show you pics of me in them!
This weekend, we’re eating dinner on the patio every single night. My Grilled Shrimp Tacos are most definitely on the menu!
My mom took my kids to see Maleficent and they LOVED it! They are talking about it so much that now I’m going to take them back to see it a second time.
Banana Pudding ice cream from Blue Bell. Buy it. Just buy it.
Sheaffer and I are so excited about Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale next month! What I love most about this sale is that there are a lot of fall/winter items on sale and not just leftover summer things. Last year, I bought boots at 40% off and some great outerwear and scarves just in time for fall. I know it’s only summer but I love scouring for some good fall sales! Stay tuned for more!
Speaking of Sheaffer…coming up on Monday, I do my Closet Confession on her blog. It was so tough going after Andrea because her closet is amazing!
And finally, this Sunday is Father’s Day!! I am so blessed to have two such amazing fathers to celebrate. My husband is such a sweet daddy to my kiddos. I am grateful every single day for his presence in our kids’ lives.
And this guy…well, this guy is like the best dad ever. Thank you Jesus for my sweet dad.
On the foodie blog today…we’re linking up and sharing our favorite summer desserts! Did you know that tomorrow is National Strawberry Shortcake Day?!?! To celebrate, I made my easy Strawberry Shortcake Trifle.
And finally, several of you have asked about the Erin Condren giveaway. All 10 winners were announced on Tuesday and all 10 winners have since claimed their prizes. Thank you!
Happy Friday the 13th!
