Friday Favorites

It’s Friday and I’m here for it!

We have another busy weekend ahead of us…

We’ll be celebrating Eliza tonight.  She’ll be turning 9 on May 30th/Memorial Day, so we decided to let her celebrate with friends a little earlier this year.

Then, on Saturday, we have our local StrawberryFest and after that we have Eliza’s dance recital.  She’ll be in two shows; one at 2:00 and the other at 3:30.  Send me all the good vibes on keeping a busy little three year old sitting during two shows in the middle of said toddler’s naptime.  Ha!

As for Friday Favorites, let’s get to it!

I’m joining in on the Friday fun with Andrea at Momfessionals and Erika over at A Little Bit of Everything.


As a gift to myself, I purchased a Mommy and Me mini photo shoot with the kiddos.  The photographer randomly hosts events for special events and each shoot lasts about 20 minutes – a quick in and out.

When she posted about a Mommy and Me session I jumped on the opportunity – I’m always behind the camera (aren’t we all?) OR if I am in the picture it’s when I’m either, in the middle of chewing or mid-conversation.  Haha!

So, I figured it’d be fun to go for it and get some special photos with my three little loves.

These are just the sneak peeks and oh. my. stars…………………………

I’m in love…


Now, I wouldn’t exactly call myself a fashion blogger, BUT, just like sharing a recipe – sometimes this sort of stuff is worth the share because it’s just so dang good!

This dress is from target.

I originally bought this cute little number for our beach getaway to 30A/Rosemary Beach during the winter of 2021.  This dress is still going strong and it’s a best-seller, with ten color options, on the Target website!
I’ve also recently purchased these shorts.

Throughout the course of the past year, I’ve become a lover of biker shorts.  My thighs very much appreciate the feel of biker shorts and the lack of chaffing, too!

When I came across these jean shorts over on Amazon, I was thrilled with the reviews, the comfort and the fact that they’re a little stretchy.

Win, win, win!

A backside photo of the shorts, because…well…shorts…

I was cracking up taking this photo!

This dress is one of my all-time absolute favorites!  It’s an Amazon find and it’s beyond comfortable – 

comfort. is. my. thang!

It washes beautifully and never wrinkles.  I’m thinking I’ll be wearing this dress on Saturday to Eliza’s dance recital(s)!


The weather is finally warming up here in Michigan, so we’ve started in on getting the house ready for summer!  This year we added some new lake toys – two new kayaks and a swim platform.

I watched Eliza from our deck as she sang some Pocahontas songs and danced on the swim platform – It was a great moment and it’s safe to say that the swim platform is a big hit………….some would say………………………..a splash! 😉
Har Har Har


I shared this S’mores Caddy Station on the blog yesterday and it gets me all the more excited for summer!

This little caddy makes our backyard bonfires so much easier!
Welp, that’s my Friday goodness for this week!  

Thanks-a-million for stopping by today!  I appreciate each and every view and comment!

Have an amazing weekend, friends. 🙂

Marie 🙂
