Friday Favorites...

It's Friday and it's back to winter around here - womp womp!  But hey we had a solid week of May-like weather so I am just going to be thankful since there is a snow storm outside my window!  You know the drill, grab your favorite caffeinated beverage and let's get this party started because its FRIDAY!   #cuejockjamsmusic


Y'all know by now I LOVE a good LOVE them!  So last weekend we stopped at the Gap Factory store on the way to see our grandparents and scored on an extra 40% off clearance sale and I had an email coupon for an additional 15% off.  Scott got $22 jeans, and I got this darling black and white striped boat neck tee for $7. Getting a good deal on things that we need  (the jeans) and want (my shirt ;) is a FAVORITE.

So along the lines of good deals, I stopped into Wal-Mart the other day which was crazy since I normally just go, park and they fill my car with groceries.  (Side note you must try Wal-Mart Grocery pick-up)  I went because I needed some picture frames and they are so much cheaper there (like 1/2 the cost of Target, FYI!).  I had gotten Lucy's little leopard boots there and they were marked down even lower so I picked up another pair for $3 for next fall. 

While everyone is all crazy about Ray-Bans I am not responsible and too thrifty to get a pair.  I would blame my kids but I just throw my sunglasses in my purse and eventually replace them because they get scratched.  I found the sunglasses below for our spring break trip for $2.50 at Wal-Mart.  There is no shame in my cheap sunglasses game!   #walmartgotgame

--oh hey favorite dress--


My daughter loves to bake and my kids love muffins.  It's one of the few things on constant rotation around our house for breakfast.  Come back on Monday for more on what I feed my family #spoiler.  This muffin recipe is SO easy even I can't screw it up ;).  

You simply take a white cake mix and a can of pumpkin puree and mix together in the mixer.  We sprinkled a few (relative term for my sous chef ;) chocolate chips on top and baked for 10 minutes (mini-muffins) and about 16 minutes (regular muffins).  It makes 1 pan of mini muffins and 12 regular muffins.  They are so good, they really shouldn't be called muffins but I am because then they can eat them for breakfast...cupcakes for breakfast sounds not as healthy ;). 

Muffins are a favorite around here...


We love bubbles around here.  I keep them all in a tote like this and then when we are done, it just goes back on the garage shelf.  I just got Lucy a big bottle of bubbles for Valentine's day and we need a new bubble machine (I think the Easter bunny might deliver ;).   We got a bubble machine as a gift for Solon's first birthday from a friend and I have gifted so many, they are always a fan favorite.  If you don't have one, put it on your list for summer!  We just got my nephew this one.

We have one like this wand and fubbles are great for little hands.  My tip is to put the bubbles in a pie plate for everyone to use.  My favorite wands are the ones you get at Hobby Lobby (like the one my nephew is holding in the picture).  Stock up as they are only out seasonally!

Bubbles are certainly a FAVORITE...

My grandparents are some of my favorite people and I shared my heart yesterday on the blog, check it out.  Aren't grandparents the best????

My favorite link-up all month was Wednesday.

And way back on Monday, my mind set sail back to the caribbean as I answered your most frequently asked cruising questions!

Have the best weekend my friends, its the last one in February!

Until next time, keep on smiling and keep on keeping on!

xoxo, ERIN
