Helloooo, Friday! I’m so happy to see you I could cry. Mainly because it means I made it through this week! Nathan came home yesterday after eight days of travel, I started back to work, and we had family in town for a couple of days. My heart feels full and my body feels exhausted. Welcome to motherhood, right? Even though it is a holiday weekend we are going to intentionally take it slow the next few days before the celebrations start on Sunday!

Whatever you are doing this weekend, I hope you have a safe and happy 4th and enjoy these Friday Faves!

+ My friend Julie announced the opening of her new Etsy shop! I’m so excited to make my first Wild Cedar Co. purchase sometime very soon!

+ The ultimate list of where to buy farmhouse decor.

+ I love how Laura used an Etsy download and engineer sized prints to make this.

+ Dark chocolate brownies with cream cheese frosting and fresh fruit sound like everything I’ve ever wanted in life. Making them this weekend (when plenty of other people will be around to eat them), for sure.

+ Coconut margaritas. Maybe if I drink one of these, close my eyes, and turn Camden’s sound machine to the wave setting I can  convince myself I’m at the beach? I’ll let you know.

+ I can not wait to put Camden in his Fourth of July outfit this weekend! Both of my boys have their outfits ready to go and I’ve got nothing… #postpartumbodyprobs

+ A beautiful 16in. boxwood wreath for under $40? Such a steal.

+ I drooled over these Splendid sandals all last year and now that they are on sale for 50% off, I really couldn’t resist them any longer.

+ I don’t typically fall head over heels with anything Lilly Pulitzer but I lovelovelove this dress.

+ POPSUGAR sent me their newest Must Have Box to try and I’m such a fan! I’ve actually considered buying one several times, but haven never bitten the bullet. The large monthly subscription box is only $39.99 and June’s came with everything you see above, plus some sriracha pretzels that were promptly eaten after I shared them on Snapchat – whoops! This box had such a wide variety of NICE items – beauty, fashion, food, and games! So much fun and such a nice treat. You can find out more about it and sign up HERE.

In Case You Missed It
+ My most anticipated beach reads

+ Life lately

    You are so sweet to mention my Etsy shop!!!!! I LOVE that onesie for Camden. Aiden had a hand-me-down “baby’s first fourth” onesie that was never photographically documented. Oops! Also, PopSugar subscription that sent you sracha (I can’t spell it) pretzels?! That sounds AMAZING!!

    Wasn’t it such a fun box?! My hubby and I totally devoured those pretzels in like 30 seconds, too. Ha! Tooooo good! 😉
