Friday Favorites – Beach Finds, Crafts and a New Toy for Jane

Happy Friday!

Our kids have another snow day today and we woke up to snow-covered-everything!  As much as I feel that I’m over the snow, the fact that it’s March helps a little and knowing that spring is on it’s way makes it a little more tolerable!

For today’s Friday Favorites I’m sharing what I’ve created this week, a new favorite toy for Jane aaaaaaaaand I decided to actually showcase some of my favorite items for spring break …and I’m sporting a swim suit for you all to see… on the internet… *nervous nervous nervous*

Let’s get to it!


So, here it is.  I’ve shared this swimsuit here before, but I’m sharing it again…and I’m wearing it this time.  I’m about 5′ 7″ and I currently weigh 163 pounds.  I’ve had three kids so I definitely need some belly support.  This swimsuit makes me feel really good and the lower belly support is awesome.  The top half of the swimsuit also helps keeps the ta-tas in place so that I don’t have to be worried about a wardrobe malfunction while playing with my kids on the beach!

As for a coverup, I randomly found this pretty purple coverup at Walmart the other day.  I don’t normally gravitate toward purple, but I must admit, it brightens things up!
A beach ensemble wouldn’t be complete without a beach bag.  I’ve also shared this bag on the blog before, but it finally came in the mail and it’s awesome!  I’m thinking I’ll fill it some Turkish towels, sunscreen and a few little snacks.  There’s even a little pocket for my phone!  I’m super pleased with it!
The other day Jane and I found this fun Picnic Playdough Shape Set at the grocery store and I’ve got to say, it was a lot of fun!  Sometimes it can be difficult for parents to find something equally as entertaining to play with the kids, but this playdough set kept the both of us happy and occupied!
Here’s what I’ve been creating this week!
My Rainbow in a Cup Idea Pin has really taken off on Pinterest and I’m so very grateful!
Read about it here…
Jane and I loved working on this rainbow shape activity!
We also worked on color sorting!
This isn’t posted to the blog yet, but it’s over on my IG, FacebookPinterest and TikTok…aaaaaaaall the social media outlets! 😉
What a great week!  Alright, welp, I’m off to get some laundry sorted and folded and then I have a hair appointment later this morning!  WooHoo!!!
Have the most beautiful day, friends!

  1. You look lovely in your swimsuit– it is very brave of you to share a photo with you in it. I've done that once and it was very, very nerve wracking! LOL. What a fun week of colorful activities.
