Friday Favorites

Friday, July 5, 2019

Happy Friday! Hope your fourth was fun and safe (and hopefully dry so you could enjoy some fireworks!). We spent the day barbecuing with family yesterday; a perfect way to spend the day, in my opinion. :) On our 1.5 hour drive home, C stayed awake way past her bedtime looking for fireworks. We got to see so many different displays as we drove! 

Sending you into the weekend with some recent favorites: 

1. Easiest Slime Recipe from Brittany @ The Snyder Family

The other day on her Instagram, Brittany over at The Snyder Family shared a two-step recipe for making your own slime, and I couldn't save it fast enough. My girls love slime, but the store-bought stuff ruins everything it touches and I am not a million-ingredient recipe type of gal... so this was perfect! Head over to her IG to check it out. C & H each got to pick out their favorite color glue (C went with sparkly glow-in-the-dark orange and H chose shimmery pink) and went to town.

2. Stasher Food Storage Bags

I might be the last to this party, but I scooped up this Stasher snack bag the other day after my friend (hi Jaime!) suggested it and it's fantastic. We go through about a million plastic snack bags a week, so I love that this option is much more environmentally friendly, budget friendly, microwave-safe, dishwasher-safe, and freezable. C will be bringing a snack every day to school with her in the fall, so this will definitely come in handy. We got ours at PBK (free shipping!) but they also have them at Target and some other places.

3. A Baby Sprinkle

Last weekend, we threw an intimate little baby sprinkle for my wonderful sister-in-law who is expecting her second son this month. We're so excited to welcome a new nephew! We kept things easy with a light but tasty lunch menu (Wegmans catering for the win) and a soft blue, white, and yellow color scheme. I brought some blocks from home to decorate, and we all wrote a little message to the new baby in a Dr. Suess book (love this idea as a keepsake). Have you been to or thrown a sprinkle? I think it's so much fun celebrating each new little life.

4. Summer Fun

We've been enjoying the unstructured days of summer. It's always a little nerve-wracking going from a set schedule to a much looser one, but I actually think it's just what we needed before all of the craziness of full time school, fall activities, and a new baby. What have you been up to so far?

5. Have a great weekend!



  1. Those stasher bags look great.. thanks for sharing

    1. I'm sort of obsessed with them! I feel like I go through SO many Ziploc bags, so hopefully these will be friendly to the environment and the wallet. ;)
