5 on Friday!!

Friday, May 8, 2015

Happy Friday!! The weather has been absolutely GORGEOUS here this week and I just LOVE it!  Sunshine and warm temperatures are definitely one of my love languages! :)

Let's get right to my Friday Favorites...they are pretty random this week...but I am okay with that! HA!

It has been in the 80's all week, so I have been wearing my FAVORITE shorts! They are from J.Crew and are my absolute FAVORITE shorts.  They are the City Fit Chino and I wear the 3 inch inseam, but they also come in 4 inch, 5 inch and 7 inch inseams!  I own 5 pairs in all sorts of different colors and wear them all summer long!  I don't even bother trying other brands of shorts because I love these so much!  J. Crew Factory also carries them...the material they are made with is a bit lighter- but the price is also much lower- and I am all about that! :)  **Right now- the chino shorts are 19.50 on J. Crew Factory and you get an extra 20% off your purchase using the code: EXTRA20!  Awesome deal!! :)

To go with my favorite shorts, I have been wearing these super fun and crazy comfortable sandals my husband got me for our anniversary!! I am a total flip flop junkie and have been known to wear them EVERYWHERE, including places like, ahem, church.  I love that these have the comfortable foot bed of a flip flop, but look more put together and dare I say, 
fancier (?!?!) than my regular flip flops.  Definitely a new FAVORITE for me!!

With the gorgeous weather we have been having, there has been a lot of reading happening on our back patio.  
Books + Sunshine + My Sweet Girls = one of my FAVORITE combinations!!!

My youngest daughter and I have gotten into the sweetest little routine lately on the mornings that my two older daughters are at school; and it just her, James and me at home. James falls asleep in the van on the ride home from school, so that is where he takes his morning nap.  I do a workout DVD and Celine plays (SO HAPPILY) right by me in her playroom.  After I work out, I get ready for the day and she follows me around and tells me the funniest stories!  Then, we wake James up and all have breakfast together.  I absolutely love this time with her :)  Definitely a FAVORITE party of my day!  SIDE NOTE: I know I have mentioned it before, but if you are looking for an awesome workout DVD- you have to try Jillian Michaels' Ripped in 30.  I tried to show how sweaty I am after doing one of her workouts..but the picture doesn't really do my sweatiness justice! HA!  

And in honor of Mother's Day on Sunday, I couldn't forget to mention one of my most FAVORITE people in the whole entire momma.  She is amazing and I am so, so, so blessed to be her daughter!  I LOVE YOU MOM!! :)

Hope you have had a wonderful week and that your weekend is full of lots of fun and sunshine!!

  4. I also love those shorts!!! You can never have too many shorts! I have the 4in because I am tall...5'9" and I am all leg, so the 3inch are a little short for me! Have a great mothers day!
