Friday Favorites!

Hey friends!!!

Happy Friday!!

It's been a full week for us...we've had cousins in town and we've spent time in Raleigh earlier in the week and then we had 9 out of the 10 cousins on my side of the family at our house the past two days. 
The kids have had a BLAST and it's been so fun to have everyone together!
We've done all the "summery" things...go to the park, go out for ice cream, stay up late, spent LOTS of time in the pool- it's been WONDERFUL!!

And now it's Friday and my heart is so full from all the family time we've had and my body is TIRED. HA! Taking care of and hanging out nine kiddos all week long has made me feel like an old lady. HA!

It's been forever since I've posted some FAVORITES on a Friday. I am so happy to be getting back into the groove of blogging and to be sharing some "happy" from our past week!

Aaron was off last Friday (we were actually supposed to be in Charleston, SC last weekend for a course Aaron was going to be taken- but it got cancelled because of COVID- BOO!) and he took the kids out to run errands and I caught up on blogging and other things while they were gone. I had my coffee, a view of our pool and it was just LOVELY. So thankful for an hour to just do some things I had been wanting to do! :)
About a month or so ago, I ordered two new lip glosses from April and I am totally OBSESSED with them!! They are the PERFECT summer colors. I love Senegence lip glosses...they are smooth, they don't get gunky and the colors are just SO pretty. I am personally not a fan of Lipsense (which is their lip color) but I LOVE their lip glosses! And I love my friend April- so it's always so fun to put in an order with her!!! You can find her HERE on Instagram if you want to get some fun beauty goodies for the summer! :)
Another recent beauty purchase I have made that I am LOVING is this sunscreen from Beautycounter. FRIENDS. This sunscreen is amazing. Probably the best I have ever used! 
I just use it on my face and use less expensive stuff on the rest of my body (but you can definitely use this on your whole body).
It smells delightful, works REALLY WELL, is NOT greasy and I have not had a single breakout out since using it! Can't recommend it enough! I get my Beautycounter products from an amazing woman named Stephanie Weinert- you can find here HERE on Instagram or via her blog- which you can find HERE!
Two weeks ago, we took a short little trip and had a picnic at Goose Creek State park and then we went to the nearby town of Washington, NC to get an ice cream treat and walk alongside the Pamlico River. It was just the perfect that I totally made sure to etch in my memory and store away. 
It was a literal and figurative breath of fresh air for our family to have such a fun afternoon together and it sure made me grateful!!
P.S. How amazing is that boat?? Aaron spent a good 20 minutes on our ride home convincing me how much we NEED a boat. HA!

Ok friends! That's all I have for today!
I hope you a FABULOUS Friday and WONDERFUL weekend!!

Linking up with Andrea and Erika!

Linking up with Becky and Della!


  1. Ha.. Just remind him boat stands for "break out another thousand" LOL. They are fun but we are finding just about all watercrafts take a lot to maintain. They sure are beautiful to look at and so fun to use though.

  2. Love the view you had while catching up on the blog. And the boat trip looks like fun. Stopping by from Friday favorites. Have a wonderful day!

  3. So glad you got a little alone time this week to do somethings you wanted to do. That always feels so good. Your little trip to the state park and all the cousin time sounds like so much fun! Tell Aaron you need to become BFFs with someone who owns a boat so you can just tag along :)

  4. Isn't alone time just amazing right now! I love my kids but since they have been home 24/7 since March! A few minutes to breath alone is amazing!

    I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Doctor jumba brought back my husband that separated with me for a good 6 months. My husband separated with me for 6 months and I have been in pain and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Doctor jumba who i contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours as far as my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Doctor jumba said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him. via call : +19085174108 or for more information check out his website :

  6. Hi everyone,I’m so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman. My husband was having an affair with a co-worker and i love my husband so much but he was cheating on me with his co-worker and this girl i think she use witchcraft or black magic on my husband to make him hate me and this was so critical and uncalled-for, I cry all day and night for God to send me a helper to bring back my husband! I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Wealthy can help get an ex-boyfriend back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it, then he did a love spell for me. 22hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he missed me so much, Oh My God! I was so happy, and today I am happy with my man again and we are joyfully living together and I thank the powerful spell caster Dr.Wealthy, he is so powerful and I decided to share my story here. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Wealthy for help now..Here’s his email,
