Friday Favorites + A Link Up Announcement!

Happy Friday Friends! I’m so excited because today I get to share the fun announcement I’ve been hinting at! So let’s get to it and start my favorites!

I’m so excited about this I can hardly contain myself. A few weeks ago I emailed my dear blogger friend Sara with a crazy idea and she said let’s do it! So here it is, you are all invited to our STAR SPANGLED KIDS party!

The Fourth of July is one of my FAVORITE holidays and I thought it would be so fun to have a little link up on all our blogs and of course Instagram sharing pictures of our littles in their fun All-American gear! And I could not be happier to have all of these awesome mama bloggers hosting with me!

Sara from Running from the Law
Kristy from Seven Graces
Erin from Hello Erin
Vanessa from Sunflower State of Mind
Natalie from East Coast Chic

So go snap some pictures of your littles and then share them on your blog anytime between July 1 and July 7 and head back here to link up. Don’t forget to share our graphic in your post and link back to us! And most importantly :) don’t forget to share your pictures on Instagram with the tag #StarSpangledKids

I’ve been doing some late night crafting and I wanted to show you the card I made for BTR for Father’s Day using my Cricut Explore. It was a free cut in Cricut Design Space and I thought it was so cute! I think double sided card stock might have made it pop a little more.

I also just bought this circle monogram font and I will pretty much be monogramming EVERYTHING I own from here on out. #notsorry

Monogrammed FitBit for the win!

Jude and I went to story time in the park on Wednesday and then played on the playground for a bit after. I just love this shot of him in the swing.

I shared this on Instagram earlier this week, but wanted to share here also. Beauty Brands is having their liter sale and you better believe I stocked up on shampoo and conditioner! I also grabbed this hair mask since I was almost out of the one I was currently using. Has anyone ever used this brand before?

I haven’t gone to yoga or barre in a while so I bought a big class package from my studio because they were having a summer special. I have 20 classes I have to go to before the end of August! I went to my first yoga class yesterday and I really forgot how much I love it.

Okay friends, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Don’t forget to come back next week for the STAR SPANGLED KIDS party! I can’t wait to see all of your littles!

And as always, I’m linking up with all the lovely ladies listed on my linkup page! And don’t forget to like Ellie And Addie on Facebook or follow me on Instagram!
