Friday Favorites


Friday, June 2, 2017

Even though this was a short work week, I have been all over the place on my days. I can't wait to dive into this weekend. I won't lie, it is pretty packed, but should be a lot of fun.

Happy June all! Let's get down to some Friday Favorites.

ONE. I believe it was Monday that House of Cards season 5 came out on Netflix. I was super pumped to start it Monday evening until my husband told me that he wanted to watch this season. He watched seasons 1, 2, and 3 with me and hated season 3 (didn't we all?), so he skipped out on season 4. Season 4 was really good, and after I talked it up, he said he wanted to give season 5 a shot. Dang. So I am hoping to tackle a couple episodes this weekend and next week on our down time.

TWO. Yesterday the girls had their first day at papa daycare and it went well. I am soooo thankful that my dad wanted to watch the girls several times over the next two and a half months. 

We were nervous about dropping the girls off at my parents house and then leaving, but the girls stood at the door and waved us goodbye and were already making themselves at home. 

THREE. So I have been on the search for some cheaper sunglasses, but would still hold up well. I bought some crazy cheap ($6 for two pairs) ones in Venice Beach a few years back and they are huge on my face and have no polarization (basically don't keep the sun out). A friend recommended Blenders sunglasses and I am happy to report, I bought a pair this week. I really hope they live up to her recommendation. I went with the Tiger Bourbon ones, but I really thought about the Kate Forest ones. How cute are they?

FOUR. This week, Jessi, from Jessi's Design said she bought some new cooling sheets that are similar to Under Armour and I had to take a look at them. They cool your body, keep moisture away and are silky soft. We are finally transitioning out of our Ugg sheets and I wanted a new pair of sheets for the summer. So I bought a pair. I got the active ones in navy.

FIVE. This is how I have been feeling lately. Eating my salads, staying away from Chick-fil-A and by the time "dessert" rolls around, give me all the things. That or I dream about all the yummy foods. Ha.

  3. Happy Friday! I love that your Dad is watching the girls. They are going to make such fun memories together. I love those glasses you got! I always prefer more affordable pairs because I switch mine out a lot. I am going to have to check these sheets out too. Have a great weekend! Beautifully Candid

  9. Papa Daycare, that is so cute. I'm glad the girls are having fun at Papa Daycare. That is so nice of your Dad. I went to Grandmother Daycare (I'm going to tell that to my Grandmother) and I have wonderful memories of it. She use to take us on the best days trips in the summer. SO much fun.

  10. My mom & dad watched my twin nieces as they grew up & now, they are so attached to my parents. Especially my dad. He still to this day goes to EVERY event they do (they're 12 now)... its such a special relationship. The girls are going to LOVE being with him.

  11. That is so sweet that your daddy is going to help watch the girls, what a good feeling to know they're in families hands the summer. My husband and I really need to start binging HOC! I love your new sunglasses. Sounds like you're going to have a wonderful weekend and I hope it treat you right beautiful lady!

    1. That makes me sooo happy. He is pretty amazing for stepping up like this. So is my mother in law. I don't know what I would without them. I have to binge watch it too. I can't see any spoilers. I hope you have the best weekend as well Andrea!

  12. Ah, yes for House of Cards! We just finished Season 3 of Bloodline, so now we need to move onto House of Cards this weekend. I was kinda bummed with the last three episodes of Bloodline. Do you watch?

  13. I need some new cheaper sunglasses! I'm always so wary of not trying sunglasses on before buying them though. I love that last graphic! You can only resist the good stuff for so long or at least that's how I'm feeling!

  14. I'm 7 episodes into House of Cards and this season is amazing so far! The best yet in my opinion.

  15. BAHAHA you and I are one in the same - I eat really well all day but in the summer when the sun goes down I'm like "ohhhh junk food..where are you?" Those sunglasses are only $30?!?! Sign me up! I got a new pair of Vogue ones last fall with polarization and a fabulous sturdy frame on sale for $110 so now I'm like I need to add some of those! I like the sheet idea! Have a great weekend!

  16. We just started House of Cards last night!! So glad it's back! Love your sunglass choices. Do you guys have a Nordstrom Rack?? That's where I get all my designer glasses for about 1/3 of what they cost full price. You should check it out. Or order online. Hope you have a great weekend!

  17. I would love to hear what you think of the sunglasses! I am trying to find a sturdy pair for summer that also protects my eyes! I am really hard on them! PS nice to find another Reno blogger! XOXO -Bri

    1. These are awesome so far. And they are polarized which you never find when you have cheap glasses. Love that you are a Reno blogger too.

  19. I like the look of those sheets! My husband and I always turn the air down low and we still get hot at night. It might have something to do with the super think down comforter I convinced him we needed....lol

    1. We do the same thing. We keep our house cool year round and these sheets should help with the heat during the summer.
