Friday Favorites

Today’s Friday Favorites post is a hodge podge of everything so here we go!

One.
I never really recapped our Mother’s Day weekend! Saturday we went strawberry picking at Eckert’s and then Sunday was super low key, and it was perfect! Oh and taking pictures with toddlers is for the birds. Seriously.

Speaking of strawberries… BTR made homemade waffles on Sunday morning and I topped them with some freshly cut strawberries! And that is a beer-mosa in case you were wondering, and it was delicious!

Then for dessert that afternoon we made strawberry shortcake!

So I’ll be honest, our garden is not looking it’s best this year. Our peas have barely grown and I have no idea why. We have tons of radishes so I’ll call that a win. For Mother’s Day BTR and the boys gave me this beautiful succulent planter and I’m praying I don’t kill it since my green thumb seems to have disappeared this year!

Thanks for all the love on my DIY Beach Towel and Swim Bag post! I wanted to share links to the products I used. Here is a link to the canvas bag and here is a link to the turkish towel. The towels come in tons of different colors and sizes!

Five.
So I just ordered some new shoes for the summer, but now I need some new sunglasses! I didn’t want to spend a ton of money because I always lose and break sunglasses, so I was pretty excited to see a ton of different options on Nordstrom for only $12! But now I need your help deciding which pair to get! Here are the ones I’ve narrowed it down to these four. Which should I get? Or let’s be honest, I probably need one black pair plus that gold aviator pair, right?!!?

We took our first neighborhood walk as a family of four (plus pups) the other day and can I just say how obsessed I am with this new stroller? It’s kind of a beast, but it’s EXACTLY what I wanted in a double and I’m so glad I got it! I guess now I need to do a whole second baby favorites list?

Seven.
Even though our peas aren’t doing well, we haven’t given up total hope on our garden! We went and picked up our tomatoes and zucchini plans at the local nursery we go to every year. Which means I got to snap a photo of both the boys. And for comparison, here’s a photo with just Jude in 2014 and 2015 and both boys in 2016. Yup I’m pretty much obsessed!

    Beautiful family photo! Sounds like you had a great Mother’s Day. I love the succulent planter you received. It’s awesome. The comparison shots of Jude are so precious.

  • Meghan Flinn

    I always love a comparison shot!!! And I’m worried our garden isn’t going to be anything great either :(. But your strawberry photos are making me excited to go pick some next month!

    • But you have soooooo many pretty flowers and that has me super jealous! I just planted more radishes so at least I’ll have those!

  • Kat Junge Holtgrave

    I like the bottom left and top right sun glasses! Love all your pics! And the succulents!! I need to get some too. And don’t worry we’ve only tilled our garden so far. Killed all the baby plants I started in pots :( we will get there! Happy Mother’s Day! You look great!!!

    • You picked my two fave sunglasses! I think I’m definitely going to need to order them! Just plant more seeds, something will have to come up eventually! :)

  • Kelli

    So, what’s in a beer mosa?! I need the recipe! I just got a Joovy Caboose sit and stand at a garage sale for $60 that I’m stoked about! Looks like you’re having fun!!!

    • Beer-mosas are our favorites! It’s just a beer (usually a saison) and orange juice, we use Goose Island Sofie since you can get it in a 4 pack of 12 ounce bottles instead of opening up a 750 mL bottle for just the two of us!

  • This is when I would get all 4 pairs and justify losing one! And I officially need around waffle iron. I’ve been wanting one for years but it’s one of those I’ll never buy it for myself, but it someone got it for me, I’d be in heaven!

    • You NEED a waffle iron! Ours isn’t even a fancy one and we use it all the time! And I’m definitely getting at least two pairs of sunglasses this week! :)

    Such a sweet family picture! Those waffles and strawberries look amazing. I could eat breakfast foods any time of the day. I like the aviators! I always go for those.
