Friday Favorites: First of March

Happy Friday, friends! Without fail, we managed to have a sick kiddo for the entirety of this week, which is just no fun. Everyone is pretty tired from a streak of long nights, and I cannot wait for the weekend to relax and recharge. The forecast is promising us some more spring-like weather and days with temperatures in the 50’s, so I cannot complain about that one bit!

1. Toy Story
My parents purchased Jackson a Mr. Potato Head a month or two ago, and since then, he has become pretty darn obsessed. So, naturally as a little Valentine’s Day gift my mom had to go and find the movie for him. And he is now obsessed with that and we watch it on repeat. Mike even bought Toy Story 2, not so much for Jackson as for himself, because he could not stand to watch the original one more time! Naturally, he has discovered all of the other characters, and loves to talk about Buzz Lightyear and Woody. Well, I about died when I saw these jammies at the Gap. I KNOW YOU GUYS, I KNOW. STOP BUYING PAJAMAS MACKENSEY. I just can’t help it. True story, they were supposed to go in his Easter basket, but I clearly have no self control so he rocked them immediately last night. I am going to need therapy when my children outgrow me buying them pajamas.

2. All the Pineapple Things

If you didn’t catch it earlier this week, I rounded up all of the amazing and adorable pineapple things out right now. From apparel to home décor, I covered it all (and I want it all)! The bookends are my absolute favorite, and I am thinking I definitely need them in my life!

3. Cracker Chips
I don’t know about everyone else, but give me a bag of sour cream and onion potato chips and I am on a dangerous and slippery slope. I fully admit to looking down and realizing I have eaten half of a bag in one sitting. I love chips so much! Well, recently I discovered these Special K cracker chips and they are seriously so good! Even if you manage to put down the entire bag, the calories are pretty low, but they are actually filling and really go a long way. I have started keeping these on hand for when I am having a salty craving, and dare I say I enjoy them almost as much as actual potato chips, and are definitely worth making the swap.
4. Mantel Décor
I am finally getting around to decorating my mantel! I was so excited about that thing when we were building, but lately it has been such a headache to me with figuring out how to hide the TV cords, how to fill it without making it seem cluttered, and of course figuring out how to hide our blue-ray player and surge protector. They are so darn ugly! First world problems, but these are the things I think about! I did so much looking online and finally decided I want to try out putting a planter box across the middle with some fake flowers. I found some tutorials online, and as my father in law works with wood a lot, I am heading over there this weekend and can likely pull this project off at almost no cost! I am so excited to get started, now my biggest question is whether to paint it or stain it?
5. Fun Vases
Speaking of the mantel, last weekend I set on a mission to at least find something to start filling that space. While browsing Target, I stumbled across this vase, and it was on clearance! I ended up buying both the large and small one for less than $20 combined! I was not sure about them when I first purchased, but once I added a pop of color with a hydraenga stem, I fell in love!
 They brighten it up so much! I threw a lantern on the other side and added a prelit candle, and I am already amazed but how much more homey the living room feels.
I hope everyone has a great weekend ahead, whether it be exciting or relaxing. I honestly cannot believe it is already March! Spring is going to be here before we know it!

    Loving those pineapple book ends! I have some seriously questionable vintage monkey ones for conversation pieces. However, I think I need to replace with pineapples. I love buying cute pajamas for my little guy too! Enjoy it while it lasts, right? Also, I'm working on planter boxes for my shelving system! Great minds do indeed think alike! Have a nice weekend!

    Walker has lately become SUPER obsessed with "Toy Story" (1 and 2…and I'm dying to get him 3 and take him to see 4 when it comes out) so I'm definitely going to have to order these PJ's for his Easter basket, too! Thank you for the heads up!

    And, praying the sickness leaves your house so soon.

    I LOVE the planter idea! That's so great that your FIL can make one for you, you lucky thing! I wish somebody I knew did wood work like that. If so, I'd be having them make all the things! Ha! I hope you all stay well this weekend!

    I say, don't stop buying those sweet pajamas. If I could talk my 9 year old into wearing them, I would. 😉 There isn't many things in life as sweet as little pj's. And I think your planter is going to look great!
