Friday Favorites

Hey there, Friday!  It’s good to see you again 🙂 .

I hope wherever you are, you have that Friday feeling.  Give me all the sun and fun this weekend!!

Just like every week, I’m linking up with my girls  AndreaErika and Narci and sharing some with you today.  I’m so happy that it’s FRI-YAY!

I’m super pumped about this one!

Okay, one of my brother’s BFFs is Austin…

See us all in their wedding party?  Here’s another pic…

…Austin is so sweet, funny, smart and one of mine and Andrew’s favorite people.  We love it when he stops by McKinney to say hi!   (Side note, Austin and I became really close when we were all stuck in a  shuttle bus together for three hours and I got car sick.  Sitting RIGHT next to Austin.  I mean…nothing makes you closer to someone than when they have to watch you puke.  A lot.  Sigh.)

So, the other day, Andrew and Smith came home from one of Smith’s baseball practices and they said Austin showed up to say hi.  Well…they were both like “you have to check out what Austin gave us”.  I mean…Smith was giddy with excitement about it.  Austin recently created a new product (named after his mom and dad) called…

Tom & Sheri’s Iron in a Bottle.  Friends, this stuff is amazing.

Smith was like, “Mom, find something wrinkly and this stuff takes the wrinkles out!”.  So, because I’m like the WORST person ever at doing laundry, it took me all of three seconds to produce something with wrinkles and bam!  They sprayed this on and the wrinkles went away.  I mean…it was so cool!  So, we started using it and by the second day, we were texting Austin and I told him that I was putting this stuff on my Friday Favorites.  He was like, well, then I’ll give your readers a DISCOUNT CODE for 10% off.  See why I love Austin? The code is mixandmatch.

You can read all about this all-natural product on their website HERE.  You spray it on, let it dry just a few minutes and your wrinkles are gone.  We’re even going to take some with us on our vacation because, hello?  Suitcase wrinkles are the worst!  (They have a travel size bottle too!)  I didn’t want to just show you the bottle, I wanted to demonstrate it.  So, since Smith is such a big fan, I asked him to help.

Step one: Find something we can “wrinkle” for our testing purposes.

I asked Smith to get one of Andrew’s shirts and “wrinkle” it.  Smith picked a pink shirt because “pink is ugly” and he went to town making it all wrinkly.

He was so proud of it.  Because he twisted it sideways, you see it has lots of side wrinkles in the middle.

We stood there in the kitchen, I sprayed it with the iron spray, we put it back on a hanger (please note, Andrew prefers dry cleaner hangers to my velvet ones…) and then it dried about three minutes.

Look!!  So cool, right?!  I am seriously giddy about having help with wrinkly clothes.

When the bottle matches your outfit 😉 .

Austin emailed me this article about ironing.  In it, it says that the average mother spends four months of her life ironing.  I mean…that just isn’t how I want to spend my time!

So, you all need it.  You’re supporting a great guy and getting a great product!  You can order HERE and don’t forget to use the promo code mixandmatch for a 10% discount.  On their site, you can also read about how the business came to be, about why it’s named after his parents, see lots of fun photos and more!

Austin, next time, please create a product that folds and puts away the unwrinkled laundry.  Please 🙂 .

Tab took this pic the other night.  I mean, how happy does this make you?!?!  These two girls are just so precious!!!

Speaking of happy…I’m having a happy moment with these necklaces from Accessory Concierge

…so cute, right?!  (And psssst: this dress is now 40% off too!)

I also wore it the other day with my tee and shorts

favorite shorts, cute tee, fun necklace means I’m ready for the day!

This is one of Cassie’s tees!  I loved it so much that I bought it in a second color

same tee, same shorts, and another Accessory Concierge necklace for the win!

What?!  What?!  Did you guys see this online?!  I’m one of Jamie Ivey’s guest for her Happy Hour Live this fall!!  I am SO EXCITED!!!  I believe the event is already sold out, so I hope some of you already have your tickets.  I cannot wait to go and chat live with Jamie and Amy Brown.

Literally, a HUGE favorite this week…

…it makes the duck look small.  And the duck is huge.  If you need a giant flamingo too, I bought it on Amazon, of course!

Lookin’ for something a little red, white and blue to make?  I got you covered friends…

July 4th Recipes

…we’re wrapping up this Friday with my Easy & Festive July 4th Recipes!

Seriously…from cakes to pies, trifles, breakfast recipes, fruit salads and more, I have your Independence Day covered!  Click HERE to see all the festive goodness.

One last thing before we go.  Our sweet friend Meagan wanted us to share this…

Due to the sensitivity of the matter, we cannot share any details at this time, but please know we’re so thankful for all the support, love and prayers.  From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

That’s it for this Friday.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend celebrating all of the fathers in your life! xo

    I need Iron in a Bottle. Not only do I not like ironing, I don’t even own one!!!! This would be a life saver for me.

  • Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams June 15, 2018 at 5:29 am

    Happy Friday! I’m not great with ironing my clothes so those sprays are extra helpful. Ashby and Britt are so precious in that picture!!

      Me too, Toni. Me too!

  • Kelly June 15, 2018 at 7:31 am

    My husband irons his clothing for work every morning, Guess who’s getting a bottle of this magic?:).

  • Kristi June 15, 2018 at 7:33 am

    Do you know if Austin’s company will ship to Canada? I couldn’t find it on their website… and we hate ironing up here too!! 😊

    • Mix and Match Mama June 15, 2018 at 12:44 pm

      I”ll ask!

    Love the iron in a bottle idea! I ditched my iron years ago and only use the steamer now 😉

  • Ruth Ellis June 15, 2018 at 8:16 am

    Still praying for Meagan and her family…my heart hurts for them and the fact they have to go through this. My church in California is also praying for God to move mountains and give them HIs peace during this time. 🙂

    • Mix and Match Mama June 15, 2018 at 12:44 pm

      Thank you so much, Ruth!

  • Hilary P. June 15, 2018 at 8:17 am

    I am ordering that spray right now!!! I’m the worst about leaving clothes in the dryer and then turning it back on a million times to get the wrinkles out and my sons dress pants just dont work like that, so on Sunday morning i’m rushed to iron his pants!
    PS. Can you show us your full closet? I’m looking to build and top on my list is perfecting my master closet size and design! Every time i see yours i think “i need to see more of that!”

  • Kristen June 15, 2018 at 8:22 am

    Just ordered that tee! So cute! I definitely need that wrinkle spray in my life, too. I am constantly buried in laundry – also with 4 kids, and ironing just does not happen!

  • Angela Ellingson June 15, 2018 at 8:26 am

    Shay!! Why didn’t you tell us about The Happy Hour Live event before it was sold out?! 😉 LOL I put myself on the waiting list. Can you convince Jamie to stream it? 🙂

  • mary June 15, 2018 at 8:26 am

    I’m a huge fan of a steamer because I refuse to Iron, but you just sold me. Thanks Austin 🙂

  • Chelsea June 15, 2018 at 8:27 am

    This spray isn’t going to save me time, but can we talk about how many nice blouses I have ruined by ironing them incorrectly!? Buying this to save my wardrobe 🤷🏻‍♀️😂

  • Rachel K June 15, 2018 at 8:29 am

    So ordering this spray. Also, my husband loves wire dry cleaner hangers and I prefer the velvet ones. I don’t at all understand him wanting the wire hangers. I hate them!!!!

  • Justyna June 15, 2018 at 8:31 am

    Is Austin single?? 🙂

    • Mix and Match Mama June 15, 2018 at 12:43 pm

      Yes 😉

      • Justyna June 15, 2018 at 1:44 pm

        Oh please send him my way 😉 he’s so handsome!

      • Raimie June 16, 2018 at 12:36 am

        I was going to ask the same! Not enough God-fearing, laundry saving men out there lol

      • Jenna June 18, 2018 at 2:08 pm

        Ha! I had the same question because…holy smoke show! Local single who hates ironing right here 😉

  • Jennifer June 15, 2018 at 8:34 am

    What size did you do in the ruffle tank? So cute!!

    • Mix and Match Mama June 15, 2018 at 12:43 pm

      xsmall 🙂

  • pam June 15, 2018 at 8:39 am

    Love your blog!
    Went to website to purchase the iron product and they offer no ingredients list.
    Couldn’t find a way to contact them regarding the ingredients–we have a lot of allergies here and need to know ingredients.
    Maybe you can contact them and ask them to list ingredients.
    Thank you for always brightening my day

    • Mix and Match Mama June 15, 2018 at 12:43 pm

      I will!!

  • Keisha Dawson June 15, 2018 at 8:40 am

    Thanks for sharing the spray! I’ve already placed my order! I’m so sad that I can’t make Happy Hour Live. I fully intended to go this time, and what a bonus that you are a guest. I’ll be in Dallas for Taylor Swift that weekend. I know Happy Hour will be the best though!

  • Ashley Hatfield June 15, 2018 at 8:44 am

    Alright, I just ordered the iron in a bottle and am pumped about it! I live in an apartment and just moved so we now have a washer and dryer in unit (LIFE CHANGING). I’ve realized basically everything comes out wrinkly…I think I may put too many clothes in at once. In any case, this is going to be awesome!

  • Michelle June 15, 2018 at 8:45 am

    Do you think the spray leaves a residue or will fade/alter a garment over time?

    • Mix and Match Mama June 15, 2018 at 12:43 pm

      It does not. It also smells so nice. I cannot rave about it enough!!

  • Cathy June 15, 2018 at 8:57 am

    Hold up! Is that Tom and Sheri Eudaly’s son? Oh my goodness, they were my teaching leaders at BSF over twenty years ago! Love them!

    • Mix and Match Mama June 15, 2018 at 12:42 pm

      YES!!!!!! What a small world!!!

  • Debbra Weber June 15, 2018 at 8:58 am

    Thank you for sharing the information on the spray. I just ordered. I can’t wait to try it out 🙂

  • Martha June 15, 2018 at 8:59 am

    Whoops! Didn’t see the code to get 10% off and I ordered the spray too quickly . There was no way to contact them on the website to let them know this.
    Love your family and all you do. Thanks for letting us into your wonderful and prayerful life.

  • Cara June 15, 2018 at 9:12 am

    I found Tom and Sheri’s on Instagram. Love this product! I think it needs to be on a baby registry because no new mom has time to iron!

  • Alisa Zimmerman June 15, 2018 at 9:19 am

    My friend mentioned she saw a laundry folding machine online so I did a little Googling … 😂

    I’m going to save my money for now, but I don’t have kids.

  • Julie Painter June 15, 2018 at 9:28 am

    Thank you for actually SHOWING how the wrinkle product worked! Just ordered it!

  • Brittany Schultz June 15, 2018 at 9:30 am

    Is Austin single? 😉

    • Mix and Match Mama June 15, 2018 at 12:42 pm

      He is… 😉

  • Carissa Nelson | Spoonful of Easy June 15, 2018 at 9:30 am

    Great tip on the wrinkle releaser — we just walk around looking rumpled and can use all the help we can get! Also I hadn’t heard of Accessory Concierge — excited to check it out!

  • Laci June 15, 2018 at 9:44 am

    Austin is a mom’s dream come true!

  • Nerine June 15, 2018 at 9:45 am

    Happy Friday, Shay!! Can you please link me the turquoise bracelet with the gold bead? It’s beautiful! Enjoy your weekend!

    • Mix and Match Mama June 15, 2018 at 12:42 pm

      • Nerine June 15, 2018 at 10:23 pm

  • Amie June 15, 2018 at 9:47 am

    So cool that you get chat with Amy Brown, I listen to their radio show every morning!! Definitely checking out this spray!

  • Scarlett Spangler June 15, 2018 at 9:53 am

    I didn’t even make it through your entire post before stopping to order the iron in a bottle. SO excited to try it! My husband knows that ironing is the one household chore I avoid like the plague, so this product sounds like the best thing to happen to me so far in 2018 😉 lol

  • Sheila June 15, 2018 at 9:54 am

    Love your blog, great recipes (cookbooks) and so many, many things – but honestly, I just ordered the spray!! Can’t wait for it to arrive here in Wisconsin!! Thanks for sharing so many great products and ideas!!

    • Mix and Match Mama June 15, 2018 at 12:41 pm

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick June 15, 2018 at 10:43 am

    I feel like you wouldn’t be surprised to know that I iron MAYBE twice a year. 😉 We’ve always used that Downy Wrinkle Release spray to get our wrinkles out because I’ll do anything not to have to iron! Ordering some now! Love that it’s all natural!

  • Nicole June 15, 2018 at 12:14 pm

    I was so happy for you when I saw your name/pic on Happy Hour Live. I am such a big fan of that podcast. Tickets were sold out on the same day they released! So popular! I bet you all will have so much fun! I actually started listening to HH when you were a guest the 2nd time. Now I don’t miss an episode. I’m so inspired by the guests and the way Jamie provides encouragement 🙂

  • Bri June 15, 2018 at 12:20 pm

    Oh my gosh. I have been using another version of that wrinkle spray for years. I didn’t even know people still iron?? That’s crazy! Lol. Happy to switch over and support a small business!

  • Elle June 15, 2018 at 12:33 pm

    Can’t wait to give the wrinkle spray a try! I feel like I am always ironing because the minute I sit down a new wrinkle pops up!

  • Liz Thorson June 15, 2018 at 1:28 pm

    Yeah for your friend Austin! I just ordered a combo an 4 travel sized bottles for my husband, 2 sons and daughter-in-law! Thank you, Shay!👍
    Love the hard work and adorable pics of Smith helping you get the shirt wrinkled and why he picked that color shirt! Haha!
    Ashby and Britt=❤️💐

  • jen June 15, 2018 at 6:13 pm

    About to order 3 bottles for my “going off to college for the first time” boy! We have been talking about his love for a freshly pressed pair of pants and shirts vs doing it himself in a dorm room! Tell your friend thanks for the discount code and I’ll pass it on to my other graduated senior mamas.

  • Casey Mussell June 15, 2018 at 11:09 pm

    Which Tory Burch are these? Looks like 2 different finishes maybe? I’m trying To decide which to get!

    • Mix and Match Mama June 16, 2018 at 6:14 am

      I bought the “makeup” ones this year! The other ones I bought two years ago and they’re “patent sand”.

  • Kathryn June 16, 2018 at 6:57 am

    Ordered the spray and was reading about Austin. Turns out his parents led the first BSF group i was in…that was 25 years ago!

  • Rachel June 16, 2018 at 9:14 am

    Austin should be the next Bachelor. He seems like a catch.

    • Mix and Match Mama June 17, 2018 at 5:44 am

      I agree!

  • Chelsa Knepp June 16, 2018 at 5:47 pm

    What size is your pool? We are building and putting one in and trying to decide on size.

    • Mix and Match Mama June 17, 2018 at 6:22 am
