A Few Favorites

What better way to start a new week than with things that are happy, right?! I feel like there has been so much good in my life lately, and I just have to share the happiness 😊

Matching with Sadie. Let’s start with the fact that I went shopping with my mom for my birthday (so special!) and we found matching shirts for me and Sader Tot in my favorite color. I’m going to keep matching with her as long as she’ll let me or until she has a sibling she can match with πŸ˜‚

Great coffee. Jimmy and I grabbed Starbucks on our way into church on Sunday morning as a little treat and it was fantastic! The nitro cold brew with cold foam is out. of. this. world.

Dandelion Praise. I read this post by Nicole and just a few hours later Sadie spontaneously picked a dandelion for me!

Stuff Sadie says. Our little family was sitting outside the other night and Sadie got on her bike and said “I’m going away!” so we asked where she was going and she said “Starbucks!” aaaand that’s my girl πŸ˜‚

Eyeshadow primer. My sister sells Mary Kay products and I bought eyeshadow primer a few months ago and kind of wondered how necessary it was but man does that stuff keep eyeshadow on your eyelids! I don’t think I can go back to not wearing it, lol.

Baking. As always, a recent favorite of mine has been baking 😬

Challah bread

Herbs. The wonderful woman we buy our homemade dog food from for Niva gave me a few plants and one of them was chocolate mint! I’m thinking I want to make homemade mint extract with it.

Seven years. Today marks seven years of marriage for Jimmy and I. How?! What a blessing the past seven years have been ❀️

Niva being cute. Not much else to say besides the fact that our wild pup is cute and we love her a whole bunch!

Tell me something happy from your life lately!



  1. So much happiness!!
    I LOVE IT! I had an amazing time shopping with you – it was great bouncing things off of you (beauty tips)
    I have to get that pic of Sadie with the dandelion on a canvas!! We can replace the one on the LR wall!

    1. YES! Thank you so much for such a fun day together on Saturday! I always love spending time with you and talking, and of course looking for deals!

      That picture on a canvas would be so pretty!

  2. Awwww, I always forget that your birthday is in June too! Remind me of the day?
    I absolutely LOVE that you bought such adorable, matching shirts for you and Sadie. I actually just ordered matching dresses for me and Kaitlyn. They haven’t arrived yet; and I really, really hope that they fit well. I’ve yet to do a matching outfit with her, and I’m so excited to start. Ha, ha. Those shirts are just too cute!
    I’m SO glad that the post Dandelion Praise touched you! I know that it was so encouraging for me when God put it on my heart. And when Kaitlyn picks me flowers now, it just makes me think of that. πŸ™‚ I LOVE that picture of Sadie picking you a dandelion!
    Happy seven year anniversary!!! I can’t believe you’ve been married for seven years already!

    1. June b-days for the win! Mine was on the 14th πŸ™‚

      I hope you post a picture of you and Kaitlyn wearing your matching dresses! Where did you get yours from? I’m always looking for different places that have mommy and me clothing! We got our shirts from Caters (yes… I bought from the kids section πŸ˜‚) but have also bought from a boutique website (Bailey’s Blossoms).

      Your Dandelion Praise post was so, so awesome! I’m really glad you shared and now dandelions will always have a special meaning for me 😊

      Seven years really has flown by! Thank you!!

      1. So I ordered our matching dresses from Walmart, funny enough. They looked So cute online! But when they came in, I wasn’t as much of a fan; and I’m sadly returning them. So the hunt continues!! Ha, ha!!!

    1. Woo! I love hearing that since she was a replica of Jimmy for so long! The eye primer is so great, as is the gel mask, and the eye makeup remover… and eye shadow… and face wash. Okay, I’ll stop before I type a novel about how much I like MK products!

      Your face in the one picture of our wedding ceremony is the best!

  3. 7 years!! Congratulations, friend! ❀

    I was going to ask where you got your matching shirts from, but I see in the comments above that it was Carter's! Pretty confident that I can't fit into a kid's size based on my height alone, but don't think I won't check those shirts out next time I'm in Carter's just to see. πŸ˜‰ Such a cute find!
