Friday Favorites

I'm linking up with Erika, Andrea and Narci today to share some of my favorite things lately!

These three are always my favorites, but I love when both kids climb up on Tyler's lap to read books or watch the iPad.

Valentine's Day Decor.  Call me a nerd, but I have always dreamed of having a fireplace so I could decorate for each holiday.  I like to keep it simple, but I just love having different colors and themes throughout the year.  I'm skipping St. Patrick's Day this year and going right to Easter since the baby is due March 27th.  No time for an extra mantle change!

Although fake, I love my pink tulips.  I'm hoping I'll get some real ones for my dining room table (ahem)! :)

Candles.  There's just something I love about having a yummy smelling candle burning.  I'd take a candle over Scentsy any day!

Kyla helped me write her thank you cards from her birthday party.  She has been working hard on writing her name.

Speaking of my favorite girl, some of the things she says just crack me up.  Last night her and Kase were watching the iPad together before bed.  Apparently Kase got a little too close to her so she said, "Kase, you don't need to sit on me.  I still love you, but can you just scoot over a little bit?"

This is from this morning, but too cute not to share!
My three favorite redheads.  Both my nieces have red hair and we love having them over for sleepovers!

I have had so many people tell me that my kids smell so good.  Like, a lot of people!  And it's all because of this, my favorite...

Date nights!  I don't remember the last time we had one, but Tyler and I are going out to eat tonight and to pick up a mattress for Kase.  He's moving to his big boy bed this weekend!  Tyler just messaged me and said he's excited for our HOT date tonight.  He called it "burgers and a bed" and "meat and a mattress".  We are so adventurous, haha!   The kids are excited to have their favorite babysitter.

Happy weekend everyone!


  1. Ha! Meat and a mattress sounds awfully kinky! Hehe, have fun ;-) ♡

  2. Love this! I'm totally a candle girl too. They make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Found your blog on the link up :-)

  3. I love that you have had so many people tell you your kids smell so good, haha! It really makes me want to go out and buy this shampoo now! We just have the regular scent right now.

    Kyla is doing great on writing her name! Good job!!!

    1. Oh, and yes, I was thinking the same as Shawna when you said what Tyler is calling your date night, hahaha! So funny! Hope you both have a blast out tonight! Joe and I are in need of a date night soon.

  4. Enjoy your date night out, laughing at those above comments too hehe! I love your mantle, and I love decorating for as many holidays as possible! :)
