Happppppy Friday, friends!
…today is my parents’ 45th wedding anniversary! How cool is that?!
Want to know how they’re celebrating the big day? Spending it with Ashby and Mades. Bahahaha! I don’t exactly know how that happened, but I bet if you would have asked Jay in Sherry in 1977 who they would spend their 45th anniversary with…they probably only could have hoped and wished it would be with two of their precious grandbabies. I’m so, so, so thankful for the legacy my parents (and Andrew’s parents) have given to us. Forty five years is a really long time. I’m not exactly sure how it’s possible since my mom is only 49, but we’ll go with it ;).
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! xx

Since there are so many here, I made a visual widget too for you so that it’s easy to just see it and click as well:
I’ve got my summer uniform going strong over here: top, shorts and repeat!
Here’s what I’ve been wearing this week…
My shorts are not current, but you can find my cute top (currently on sale) HERE in multiple colors. I’m wearing the color “antique white”.
My earrings though…
…rock my world! Little gold and pearl lobsters?! YES, PLEASE!!
This shirt had me at the stripes, but guess what?! It also comes in SO MANY other colors and stripes too! The back of the shirt is super cute too! I am wearing an xs here, and it fits a little big, so if you’re in-between, I think you could size down. My shorts, of course, are my faves, and today, they’re 30% off!
Finally, my favorite place to buy bodysuits is Abercrombie. I have several and love them all! They fit TTS, they’re made well, I wash and dry them…I cannot say enough. I have this one HERE in both black and white. LOVE!
I love this one HERE…
…this one HERE…
…and this one HERE.
I’m pretty positive that there’s a whole post here, but if you’re looking for something fun for your kids to do this summer…don’t forget about using your Amazon Echo to teach them how to draw. I’m not sure a day goes by where Mades doesn’t perch up here and go to YouTube and ask it how to draw ___. She also asks about lettering, 3D shapes and more. I was watching her do it this morning, and it just reminded me that it’s a really great way to entertain kids and encourage their creativity. She’s getting SO GOOD at drawing freehand just from watching on our Echo!!
We had our first swim meet this week! Oh my word! I posted a video on my IG, so check it out if you haven’t already in my Reels. Ashby just jumped on in there and swam her heart out. We are SO PROUD OF HER!!!!! She has this amazing work ethic and tries her hardest at every single thing she does. We were bursting with pride at her meet.
Last but not least…
…it’s my annual round up of THE BEST BURGER RECIPES! You guys, I have 33 amazing burgers you need to try this summer. From beef to turkey, crab cake burgers, vegetarian burgers, burgers with peaches, burgers with blackberries, a vegetarian burger and more. You need these recipes 🙂 !
That wraps up this week’s Faves! I hope you all have a blessed weekend! I’ll see you here on Monday! xx
