Friday Favorites 8/19

Whew the first week of school is done!  I'm not going to lie it's a bit of a challenge to get me and the girls completely ready by 7:50 and out the door.  Emily got right into the groove immediately.  She completely amazes me with her adaptability.  She acted like she was on old pro at elementary school.  I'll be doing a full post about kicking off the school year soon.
This week was also filled with endless work and lots of collaborations with companies I just love.
Happy Friday and everyone have a blessed weekend.

I was featured twice this week on kindkiddoshop's IG.  It's such an honor to work with amazing people.

On Sunday we had a true SUNDAY FUNDAY!!!  This was the first time we took the boat out all summer.  Can you believe that?!?!
We had the best time lounging in the water with a cold drink in hand.

Of course a big highlight was Emily starting elementary school.

I was also featured on PinkBlush this week.  This dress is so pretty; I was so excited to share it with everyone.

To celebrate Emily starting school we had a fun family pizza night at Pieology Park Crossing.  Pieology was so generous to treat us to a celebratory evening.  I'll be sharing more details about our night soon; stay tuned.

The Real Housewives of Orange County were epic this week.  I almost gave Heather Dubrow a standing ovation when she shut Kelly down.
Check out the clip HERE.

My meal planning ideas where featured on Everyday With Bay.  You can see the full post HERE.
Meal planning helps prevent the 3 o'clock what the heck am I making for dinner?!?!?!  To be totally honest I've strayed away and desperately need to get back to it.

I had the honor of selling my dear friend's home.  We had an offer within hours of putting the home on the market and we sold it for over asking price.
It's hot outside and a equally HOT market!

My adorable girls were featured on The Cuteness.  You can see the full post HERE.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Starting Kindergarten is such a big deal. How exciting she had a great time and was a pro! I love that floral dress. I need to check out your meal planning post. I'm always in need of a good recipe!

  2. Emily I hope my meal planning offers you a bit of help:)
