Hello, hello! It has been awhile since I posted my Friday Favorites. The summer blogging slump is so, so real. Is anyone else just totally unmotivated lately!? I have such a hard time sitting down at my computer when it is sunny and there is a cold adult beverage calling my name and a kiddie pool that needs to be supervised 😉 Summer is so short, I am trying to soak in every last minute! But go figure, it is cloud and only in the 60’s today, so here I am! I have plenty of exciting things I have been loving lately, so let’s get to it!
You guys, I finally did it. I got a letterboard! After much searching, I finally decided to go with Mcleod Letterboard Co. Their prices are excellent, and Kimberly, the owner, is so sweet and provides exceptional customer service. I got a 16×20 board, as I figured it would provide more versatility and we would be able to use it in more ways. I cannot wait to share all of the ways we use it!!
Jackson has been all over the letterboard..and the letter O. He clearly loves to help decorate.
2. New Patio!!
This is by far my favorite thing happening right now! Last night, we officially went and purchased pavers and all the things we need to put in our new patio!! If you have followed along with our home building process, you may know that we essentially moved in with zero work being done to the yard. We didn’t even have grass that we could be out on until just this past month! Our lot is huge, and sometimes it gets so frustrating to have this big, beautiful yard but essentially feel like I can’t use it. I am so ridiculously excited for this patio. We will finally have a place to put our grill outside of the garage, and I cannot wait to get a table and chairs and be able to sit outside in the evening! I will be sure to share the progress as we move forward!
3. Fun office look
I recently scooped up this pencil skirt, and love it so much! The side zipper is such a fun detail that makes it a little bit edgy, and there is a great amount of stretch to the fabric while still being structured. The length is nice and long too, perfect for the office. And, it was already on sale plus I had an extra coupon, so I was able to snag it for only $23! I have to say, I think my favorite pencil skirts are all from Express; they know what they are doing!
4. My (still) Favorite Shorts!
I have shared these shorts before, but they continue to be my go-to shorts this summer. They are so unbelievably comfortable, and look great with just about everything. I cannot recommend them enough! There is a mega sale on these tomgirl shorts, too, but sizes are limited. I haven’t seen them priced this low so if you see your size now is the time to grab them!
5. The Prettiest Fall Sweater
I know everyone is focused on the Nordstrom sale (I will be recapping my favorites when it opens up to us poor non-cardholders 😉 ), but other stores are totally rolling out their fall goodies, too! Gap has this adorable pink sweater and I am obsessed with the pontelle detailing. Right now, their website is an additional 40% off with code NOW, so if you are need to scoop up some goodies, today is a great day to do so!
We have another exciting weekend ahead; yard work to prepare for the pavers that we will hopefully have completed by next weekend, helping take newborn photos of my new nephew, and hopefully meeting my new niece! Five boys, and the streak is finally broken on my husband’s side 😉
