It’s Fri-day! We’re taking the kiddos to the circus on Saturday, so needless to say, we’re super pumped about the weekend! Today, I’m linking up with my girls Erika, Andrea and Narci and sharing my Friday Favorites.
On Wednesday, I did my monthly book review…if you need some book suggestions, you should go through and read the comments (you ladies leave the BEST suggestions!). That being said, everyone needs to read this next…
…my friend Big Mama (a.k.a. Melanie Shankle) wrote a memoir about friendship and if you know me, you know my friends are very important to me. This book is funny, witty, charming and just so sweet. I love my girlfriends so much…this book really spoke to my heart. You and your besties should read it! Pre-order Melanie’s book Nobody’s Cuter Than You here.
It comes out April 7!
Holy hair! You ladies are even more obsessed with hair products than I am! After I did my hair product post on Tuesday, the number one question I received was how I did my hair at night when I slept with it wet. You ladies want to know exactly how I do it. Listen, my hair is naturally wavy, so I don’t think the exact precision of the bun is as necessary as just not lying on it flat all night. For grins, here’s a pic of my bun a la wet and right before bed…
I just take my hair and pretend like I’m going to put it in a ponytail. Then I take the “tail” part and wrap it around like a bun, After that, I take my hair band and wrap it three times around the bun. My ends stick out but that’s okay because my ends aren’t wavy.
I use fabric elastics like this so that there isn’t any creasing…
…I’m pretty sure I picked these up at Target or Walmart. I don’t wear them out and about because they’re not super strong but they work like a charm at night with wet hair.
The second most popular question was whether I slept with it up on nights 2 or 3 and that answer is no. After I wake up with my dry, beachy hair…I just go about my business and sleep on it down. Once my wave is in there, it’s in there. That being said, if your wave falls a bit, go ahead and sleep with it up again.

I did a post on Monday about Ashby’s adoption and her first visit to Scottish Rite and the number one question I had that day was “What version of the Bible do you read?”. So, I snapped a pic of my Bible sitting here on my desk just for you…it’s the New Living Translation (I like the one with the commentary at the bottom). As Kensington would say, that question was “easy peasy lemon squeezy”. 🙂
My Friday Favorite outfit for spring is this. I’m usually not a yellow person (because sometimes blondes and yellow don’t mesh) but I’m in love with this shirt, my jeans and the sandals. Forgive me if you see me wearing this every single day for the next two months. This outfit is going on repeat.
And just FYI…my favorite stud earrings…
…are 25% off right now :). They come in 16 different colors and I love them all. These are my very favorite earrings to wear.
Over on Mix and Match Mama, I’m getting into Spring! Coming up in the next two months…
