Friday Favorites: St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy Friday, friends! This week had a little curveball thrown into it when Jackson randomly got sick on Wednesday right after being dropped off at daycare. I hadn’t even gotten out of the door from leaving Lincoln at my parents when I had to turn around and go back home with a sick kiddo. The rest of my week has just felt off, being out of the normal routine in the middle of the week will do that to you! Today is St. Patrick’s Day, and while we aren’t one bit Irish, I plan to dress my little loves in green, make some sort of festive treat, and enjoy a beverage that is green this evening. Green beer isn’t my taste, but Midori, that is a drink I can get behind 😉
1. Freshly Picked Giveaway
For those of you that missed it, I have teamed up with Freshly Picked and am giving away a free pair of moccasins! It is open through Saturday, you can enter to win on the original post! These moccasins are seriously the cutest shoes, with quality that is a step above the rest. I chose the classic Zion color, but there are countless fun options, too. If you have a kiddo that wears shoes, this contest is for you!
2. Florals
I am itching for spring weather like crazy, especially after having a string of pretty cold weather lately. At least we didn’t get hit with snow like all of you on the east coast, but still! I did a post earlier this week sharing some of my favorite office looks for spring, and this floral blazer has me swooning! How cute for work, but also for a night out with a tee and jeans! Other floral looks I am loving include this dress, these pants, and how fun is this jacket?!
3. Song
I am not usually on top of the ‘music’ game. But I heard the song That’s What I Like by Bruno Mars and was hooked instantly. I do not know what I find so darn catchy about it, but I seriously get excited when it comes on the radio. My poor kiddos have had to witness me sing and dance to this song, which is totally not kid appropriate. Good thing neither of them have any concept of the words in songs quite yet. 😉
4. Cotton Stems
My blog friend and fellow boy mama Brittany from Life As The Mrs shared a photo on Instagram earlier this week and I now NEED some cotton stems in a pretty blue vase in my house. I just love accents of blue and white for the house, and am now on a mission to have some of my own. I am pretty much always finding inspiration from Brittany, she has the cutest style, the cutest boys, and is one of my favorite mamas to follow! 
5. Pinterest
Keeping it real, I totally fell off of the Pinterest bandwagon recently. So many apps, so little time 😉 But I have a few parties and things I am looking for inspiration for lately, and have been loving all of the ideas that can be found on Pinterest! I have a fun St. Patrick’s Day board, filled with cute ideas for you and your kiddos! And obviously, lots of green treats, because sugar is my love language. And if you are looking for dessert ideas, some of my best concoctions have come from this board. If you don’t already, come follow me and enjoy the random pins to get a good idea of what is going on in my head at any given time 😉 Hint: usually sparkle, birthday parties, and food.

    I'm loving the new Bruno Mars song. I do Pinterest in random bursts – lately I've been pinning a lot of cute Easter things!

    You are so sweet! I'm honestly flattered, friend! 🙂 Cotton stems FTW! And, I pray no one else in your house comes down with that terrible bug. I'm convinced that stomach bugs are THE worst thing in the world. Also totally obsessed with that song, and so is Walker! He said in the car the other day, "Mommy, I can't hear the beat! Turn it UP!" Ha!
