Friday Favorites!!!

Friday, March 17, 2017

Hi!! Happy Friday and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
 How was your week??

I sure hope it's been a good one!
Since it's Friday- I've got a few random favorites to share with you today!!

Do you have a FAVORITE Bath and Body Work's scent?? I have almost run out of my body spray I use as my "every day" perfume and found this 'Love & Sunshine' spray in a basket in my daughters' bathroom. I put a little on and oh my goodness! I LOVE it! I don't know where I have been the last year or so since we got this spray- but I obviously wasn't aware of how lovely it smelled! HA! It's fresh, not overpowering at all and not too sweet. The perfect combination in my opinion!! I would love to know what scents you love from Bath and Body Works- my girls and I are headed there this weekend with a coupon to get a free lotion and I would love to try out a new scent!!
Speaking of my girls- this past Sunday, Aaron and the boys went to walk around Home Depot and look at appliances for our new house. He dropped us girls off at Walmart to pick up a few things and we had the best time wandering around the store!!  We all piled up in a tiny dressing room while I tried on a few things and it was just a really sweet time with my girls! LOVE THEM!
While we were at Walmart- I found these colored chino shorts in the Men's Department and picked up several pairs for Aaron!! They are his new FAVORITE shorts!! If you want, you can check out the post I wrote about some fun Walmart finds I came across- HERE-including these shorts that are SEVEN DOLLARS!! They look and feel like chino shorts from J.Crew!!
Our St. Patrick's Day tradition is to have a green breakfast- I make green pancakes, green applesauce, green yogurt, green eggs and green milk. My kids get their yearly dose of artificial food coloring on St. Patty's Day FOR SURE. HA!
I came across these super FUN rainbow pancakes- and since rainbows are a big FAVORITE of my girls- I am going to make these in place of our traditional green pancakes!!
You can check out the recipe and method HERE!
We are having our green breakfast for dinner's going to be so fun and a great way to kick off our weekend!!

This is one of my FAVORITE prayers. When we lived in Cleveland, we attended St. Basil the Great Catholic Church and the head pastor there, Father Walt (who is AMAZING) says this prayer as his final blessing. 
I just love it and I cherish the memories we have of attending St. Basil!
Hope you have the BEST day and a WONDERFUL weekend!

  3. LOVE those rainbow pancakes! I laughed at your comment about the food dye and I have to agree... but it sure is fun, and it's just one day. :)

    My post today has a link to your blog because you inspired us to try those shamrock pretzels - we did ours a little different and they turned out so cute! Thanks for the idea!

  4. I have been looking for a new bath and body spring scent, this sounds great! Isn't it wonderful things you find in Walmart, I especially love to find a good clothing, I'll have to tell my husband and boys about the chinos. Happy weekend and happy St. Patrick's Day!

  5. I've been sharing WalMart with everyone who will listen. I blame you for this :)

  6. We always have green pancakes and milk too! My kids go crazy and I love seeing their excitement! Have a great weekend!


  7. I HAVE to try that Bath & Body Works scent!

  8. I'll share with you some of my recent Walmart finds. Wet n Wild has a Catsuit Matte lipstick that I'm obsessed with and at $ just can't beat it. In May we are heading to the beach and I found an adorable shark tank for Jack for $3. I also found Jack a perfect pair of dressier brown sandals for less than 10 bucks. I love Walmart! I'll look up that scent the next time I head to a Bath and Body works. I love the classic cherry blossom smell. I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!

  9. I have the same prayer on a plaque in my kitchen! Those shorts are a great find.

  10. Justine, I'm a long time reader and also an SIU grad. I love reading your blog! Have you subscribed to the Walmart Beauty Box? Every time I get my box, I think of you and your love for beauty products + Walmart! Also, I know you're a Sam's Club shopper--I saw 4 packs of riced cauliflower there in the frozen section this weekend!

  11. Great Walmart finds and I love that Irish blessing. What a great way to end mass each week. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  12. Hope you guys had the best weekend! We had our fair share of food coloring, too! haha!
