{Good} Friday Favorites

Hello old friend, it’s been a while! There has been a LOT going on around our house the past few weeks,thus my hiatus from the blog world. My goal is to do a separate post for both of our most recent big trips. Three weeks ago we were able to travel to Bora Bora for a magical stay and then following that we went to San Miguel for a friend’s wedding. Bora Bora equals MAJOR bucket list. San Miguel equals immediate weekend getaway {like in your very near future, because it’s that convenient of a destination}. Details on both trips coming in the next couple of weeks.

This week we had a very unwelcome visitor pay us a visit. Flashback to Monday –  I picked up MP after school and she had a few spots around her mouth…and her hands…and her toes. Gasp. In my mind, the the teacher in me instantly knew what it was. Hand Foot and Mouth Disease. Just great!! And now that you know that, well you don’t need a play by play of the rest of my week. Teacher Momma’s you know the drill, scramble to get a sub, miss all of your tv shows,oops I mean, stay up late finishing your lesson plans, and then wake up the next day in a panic because you feel like you probably left something out of the plans. And it’s true..these little stinkers really do wait until a holiday to get sick. Hello sweet little girl, your Momma spent lots of time getting your Easter outfits all picked out. Don’t let me down sister, time to get better!!! But in all seriousness, this is a NASTY virus and she is one TOUGH little cookie. She hardly complained even when the blisters looked so painful. My little hero! Thankfully, I feel like we’re in the clear and should be good to go this weekend…bring on the Easter dresses, plastic eggs, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, and oh the peeps…my favorite! Don’t worry Mom, I bought my own this year. 🙂

We decided to bust out the Easter Bunny gifts on our sick day.

And now for my Five on Friday…

ONE

White Jeans – I’m on the hunt for the perfect pair. I spotted some at Nordstrom a couple of weeks ago and am kicking myself for not snagging them.

Rag & Bone ‘The Skinny’ Jeans – I love the classic skinny and remember I AM obsessed with all things R&B. I find myself wearing my white jeans mainly during spring instead of summer. In my opinion summer is for maxis, cut-offs, rompers and sundresses – not heavy denim that sticks to your body in 100 degree heat. No ma’am.

TWO

Rag & Bone Raw Hem Crop Flare Jean – These little jeans are a real stretch for me. I hated them at first glance, but then I kept going back to them because I’ve seen them everywhere.  Now I’m thinking to myself, maybe they are actually pretty cute and I could see myself wearing them a LOT. Dress it up a little with wedges or keep is super casual with your favorite kicks. The jury is still out on this one, but i’m leaning heavily towards YES.

So tell me what you think!  Yay or Nay?

THREE

Planet Blue! If you don’t know, well now you do. Need something boho, summery, flowy, or beachy? You must look here! There’s a store on Henderson in Dallas, but if that’s too far you can order online. Dresses are definitely pricey but worth it for a trip or fun event. I listed a few things that caught my eye.

I purchased this dress (above) for Bora Bora but ended up wearing it to the Thomas’ Rehearsal dinner in San Miguel. I can’t tell you how much I love it. It will also be the perfect summer’s night out dress. As a size reference, I have a small and it its comfortably. And sidenote: you cannot wear a bra with this since the back is super low, wear the silicone covers {you know what I mean} and you’ll be just fine.

This long maxi dress seems to be a little more versatile and I love that she’s wearing it with Converse. A cute pair of gladiator sandals or wedges to dress it up would  be so perfect too. This is definitely on my list – easy to throw on when you don’t have much time to get ready!

And well this one, I just think it’s REALLY cute, and pastel, and floral, and springy…ahh. Add it to the list!

Sorry,extra large back tat not included. 🙂

FOUR

If you haven’t tried Charlotte Tilbury make-up (found at Nordstrom), time to get on it. A friend recommended the mascara and while I do like it, I LOOOOOVE the face sculpt and highlight set. It’s $68 and worth every penny.

I also have the ‘lip lustre’ lacquer in Sweet Stiletto and it doubles as my every day gloss as well as for a night out.

FIVE

Hats-Hats-Hats. J. Crew Panama Hat. I have it and it’s the perfect fit. I feel like I end up buying a new hat every year around this time because the summer before my hat gets wet, bent and destroyed while traveling. So here is my 2016 version.

And there you have it! I hope everyone has a very HAPPY EASTER. I can’t wait to watch MP mow down some eggs this weekend, we’ve been practice “hunting” and she’s got it down.

My Mom got her the cutest Resurrection Egg Set like we used as kids and I can’t wait to start the tradition with her.

And as always there is a true reason for the season. HE is RISEN. Amen Amen Amen!!!
