Archives For Friday Finds

Happy Friday!

I always love Fridays, because it is the start of the weekend, which means lots of family time! It’s my favorite. The thing I am most looking forward to this weekend is my family coming to visit! They are currently driving across the country (from California!) to come and see us and will arrive Sunday night. I am very excited to see my parents, brother, and two of my sisters. We will miss my other sister, Miranda, who is about to start her new summer job in Colorado as a horse wrangler and trail guide at a ranch in the mountains. So exciting!

Since it is Friday, I thought I’d share some of my favorite things I’ve found around the internet this week…

  • Emily Ley announced her new Home Base Binder, which looks kind of amazing. I’m a huge fan of her Simplified Planner, and I feel like this new binder of hers is a great compliment to it.
  • This Pineapple Dole Whip copycat recipe sounds so yummy! My favorite treat to get at Disney World is their Pineapple Dole Whip, so it would be fun to try making it at home sometime.
  • This week I discovered Elise Blaha‘s podcast, Elise Gets Crafty. On it she covers subjects from blogging, business, creativity, inspiration and motivation. If any of those subjects interest you, go check it out! I’ve really enjoyed it so far.
  • What is Oil Pulling? I’ve been hearing more and more about it lately, and apparently there are quite a few health benefits to it. I haven’t tried it myself yet, but this post definitely sparked my curiosity.
  • A Beautiful Mess launched their French Macarons 101 Crash Course this week! Mmmmm…I sure do love French Macarons (especially lemon ones). I would love to one day learn how to make them myself!
  • I’m loving this list of Small Fry’s Best of Summer activities. I can’t believe it’s almost summertime! And these activities look like so much fun to do with your little ones.
  • I can’t stop looking at this Boy’s Room Tour on Oh Happy Day by Jordan Ferney. It is bright and cheery, and looks like the perfect space for her boys to have lots of adventures. Looking at it made me even more excited that soon Liam will have a little brother to share a room with!
  • I found this artwork on Etsy, and it is so fun! I really like the colorful geometric design.
  • Liam’s 2nd Birthday is next month (I can’t believe it!). We’ve had our eye on this Radio Flyer Classic Red Tricycle for a while, and I think we might get it for him for his birthday. I think it will be lots of fun teaching him how to ride a little trike around. :)

What are some of your favorite things you’ve stumbled upon online this week? And what are you looking forward to this weekend?

I hope your weekend is full of sunshine and adventures!

Happy Friday!

This week I stumbled upon several great finds on the internet, and thought it would be fun to share them with you here. So, I’m starting a new blog series called “Friday Finds”. The title is kind of self-explanatory I think, but on Fridays I will be linking to different things I’ve found that week. It may be an interesting article, yummy recipe, funny picture, video, etc. And if you would like to join with me in this, feel free to share some of your fun finds in the comments below! :)

  • 20 Habits to Quit Next Year -  This is a great article listing many habits that we should all be sure to break. I can personally relate to a few of these, specifically 1, 2, 7, and 15.
  • 5 Things Moms Should Never Wear (and Easy Alternatives) – This list of mommy fashion faux pas was really good. I especially loved how Summer gave alternatives that would help fix these no-no’s. (Of course, I think there are exceptions to many rules…so if you can pull off sweats in style, go for it! Be you!)
  • Now You Can Find Donuts Wherever You Are, Thanks To Doughbot – Oh boy…there is now an app to help you find the closest place to get donuts! Lately, donuts have been my weakness. They are one of the main pregnancy cravings I’ve been having recently. As amazing as this app looks, I have not downloaded it yet, because I’m trying not to give into this temptation too often.
  • Portland, Maine City Guide – I have loved Design Sponge’s City Guides for a quite a while now, so I was excited to see when they did one on the city I was born and raised in–Portland, Maine! There were many places on there that I’ve never been to before (and some that were familiar).
  • Skillet Cookie recipe – This skillet cookie recipe looks absolutely amazing!
  • Spectacular Moleskine Doodles – These doodles are incredible. Makes me want to pull out my sketchbook again.
  • Painted Bottle Vases DIY - I would love to make some of these for the center of our kitchen table in a variety of summery colors. It looks so easy to make too!
  • Book Seer – This is a website that will suggest what you should read next based off of any book you’ve read and loved. Amazing! I can’t wait to use this book generator more.
  • Good Films – Finding a great movie just got a whole lot easier.
  • A Lemon is the Secret to a Perfect Tan? This and Other Ingenious Tips – There were some great tips in this article that I’m going to have to try sometime.

There you have it! My Friday Finds for this week. What were your favorite finds this week? Feel free to share in the comments below!

Have a very happy weekend!
