Friday Favorites

It’s Friday!!  Annnnnnnd I had the stitches removed from my mouth. #AMEN  My plans this weekend?  Eat solid food. #goals

Today, I’m in an extra happy mood…so, I thought I’d do something I’ve never done before.  I’m going to do a Facebook giveaway today where throughout the day, randomly, winners will be selected to receive one of these makeup items from last Friday’s post

Fun, right?!  Hurry on over to Facebook and comment when you see this pic.  Throughout the day, random people will be selected to win one of these items from the comments.  (It’s going to be random, so your comment can be a tag/a friendly hello/whatever you like!)  Maybe you’ll win my favorite mascara?  Or a lipstick?  Just something small from me to you to celebrate that it’s Friday and I’m in a good mood 😉 .  You can comment as many times as you like…it’s going to be random, so good luck to you all.  If this works out, then perhaps we can do this in the future on Instagram or blog comments too!  If you missed this from last week

…I posted a video where I explain why I love each and every one of these products.  Here they all are again…

So, before we even begin today, a fun giveaway 🙂 .  Just like every Friday, I’m linking up with three of my besties, AndreaErika and Narci today and sharing my favorite things from this week.  Here you go…

Heart Sweatshirt//Tank//Jeans//Earrings//Nikes

How cute is this little outfit for Valentine’s?!  I have multiple parties for my kiddos and plan on wearing this at every one.  This is the same brand of shirts I always buy for my holiday tees (you’ve seen me in July 4th, Halloween and Christmas stuff too!).  They’re so soft and cozy plus they wash and dry really well.  They have other cute Valentine’s stuff HERE.


Oh Annie Downs, I love you!!!  I have gushed about Annie’s books and devotionals for years and this one right here, deserves to be gushed about too.  I waited until January 1 to start mine, and I’m in love.  This book has 100 daily devotionals (all Biblically based) but with her whit and humor that pairs perfectly.  Annie is raw, she is real, and she is one of my favorite people.  You should grab this one and her book Let’s All Be Brave.  Now, these books are good for EVERYONE, but if you’re single out there, I think they’re even more perfect for you.  Annie has a way to speak right to the hearts of everyone…but she has a big heart for singles.

Because I’ve been living in comfy clothes all week, I feel that I must make this a favorite…

…because I’ve legit been wearing it almost every day.  #givemeallthefleece  Ha!  It comes in so many fun colors too!

And speaking of things that I’ve been thinking about this week, I’ve been thinking about dresses and summer (because when it’s cold and I’m wearing sweats, I often fantasize about warmer weather and vacations!).  All of these dresses below have been favorites of mine over the years and look, they’re all back in stock for another season…

The #1 dress in my  closet.  I’ve posted at least 4000 pics of myself in it because it’s MY FAVORITE.

This gem from last year is perfect for February through summer 🙂 .

And I gushed about this green dress on repeat last summer (and wore it just about once a week!).  It comes in many colors (I also have the black!) and is so comfy!

Smith got this game for Christmas and we cannot stop playing…


…it has been such a fun game!  Both he and Kensington have been playing it quite a bit.  I was afraid that it might be kind of hard, but all of the answers are located somewhere on the map (with symbols, words and such), so they set the timer and try to locate the answer to the questions.  This little game has been such a hit (and quite educational too!).

It’s good to be back, friends 😉 .

Head to FACEBOOK NOW for my giveaways today!

Winners will be tagged at told what their prize is at random times throughout the day!!

Happy Friday!!!

Someone hand me a steak 😉 !

    Would love to participate in the FB giveaway but our church is doing 21 Days of Prayer and I gave up FB during that time. I’ll be back Sunday as tomorrow will be the last day of that specific time (not me praying though 🙂 ). Hoping to see another one of these giveaways. 🙂

  • Reply Colleen January 26, 2018 at 6:35 am

    Hi Shay! What a fun idea! I love that Valentine’s outfit. I’m finally in need of new tanks to wear under shirts and I know you’ve talked about those tanks forever. Do you think they are true to size? Or would you size up for length (I like the tank to peak out a bit under the sweatshirt)? Thanks so much!

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama January 26, 2018 at 6:59 am

      True to size! They wash and dry beautifully with no shrinking!

      • Reply Colleen January 26, 2018 at 8:56 am

        Wonderful! Thank you!

    You mentioned that the devotional is good for singles. My sister is going through a difficult break up and worries she will never find the right person and get married. She could really use some encouragement right now. Would it be good for a single girl in her 20s? Thanks! Oh and glad you are feeling better after surgery. I have TMJD and gum recession and follow your story. Myofunctional therapy and gum grafts may be in my future too!
