Weekend Favorites

Saturday, August 1, 2020

Happy weekend & first day of August!

Phew, what a week! I feel like most of my days have revolved around back to school research, talking to other parents, discussing all of the various points with my husband, calling my own mom with updates, reading and debating and writing lists... repeat forever. I know so many of you are in the same boat and I've really appreciated you being alongside me with all of this. The fact that we are all in the thick of this together is comforting. And somehow, we will make the right decision for our families (I shared more of my thoughts on this topic on Monday, here).

Anyway, coming at you a day late with Friday Favorites! Here's what I've enjoyed this week:

-Loving connecting on another level with my new Instagram page where I share my favorite finds, fashion, home decor, and snippets of motherhood. It's a brand new venture and I'd love to meet you.. so come say hello! :)

-This viral message with a pediatrician's advice to parents about making "the school decision"

-Hadley got the round version of this swing for her birthday, and the kids have already gotten so much use out of it. Who am I kidding: I love it too!

-Literally lol'ed at this video -- and then wondered if someone secretly filmed me. Too true!

-I ordered 4 of these kids' mask lanyards -- two for each of our older girls -- so they don't lose their masks or put them down on dirty surfaces. You customize them with their names, fun colors, and a little charm. How cute/genius is this?! They should arrive today so I'll share what we think of them on Instagram stories.

-Check out the new Oprah magazine cover. Powerful.

-I made this salmon twice in one week it was so good (and easy). Let me know if you try it!

-And two sales happening this weekend I wanted to share: bareMinerals Friends & Family (everything is 25% off and free shipping -- this is the foundation I've been using daily for years), and J.Crew is taking an extra 50% off sale styles (sign up for their free rewards program and get free shipping all the time)

Have a wonderful weekend & start to a new month. <3


  1. I just started following you on your new IG. I want a swing like that!!!I love all things J Crew and have bought way too much from there recently.

    1. Yay, thanks! The girls think it's funny that I like the swing just as much as they do, haha

  2. Love your new instagram! The Salmon recipe looks delish too - I've done something like that before with Chicken in the oven wrapped in foil - just adding ginger, soy and sherry too. Yummo. I feel for you having to make such a difficult decision over school - you must be releived to have come to a conclusion with it. You've reminded my re the lanyards - such a good idea!

    1. Thank you, my friend! A meal that is that easy + delicious becomes a quick favorite over here! I am so relieved to have the decision made. It's strange times we live in that masks/lanyards are what we're scooping up for the fall, isn't it?!
