We are back from a fabulous beach vacation in Destin, Florida, and I'm still totally on beach time. I can't wait to share more about our trip with y'all next week. But since it's Friday, I wanted to pop in and share a few of my favorites with y'all before our weekend of unpacking, laundry and errands commences. ;) 

Before we left for our trip, I got sucked down the Amazon rabbit hole and found these two sets of earrings {top pair and bottom pair}. I mean, how cute! I couldn't resist their price tag for something so fun and trendy, so I immediately added them to my cart. 

Something I loved while we were at the beach was this sunscreen for my body and this one for my face. I have a really hard time finding a sunscreen for my face that doesn't immediately cause my face to break out, and one for my body that actually protects my fair skin while also smelling good and not clogging my pores {because no one likes backne, thank you very much!}. Both of these sunscreens worked so well for me at the beach, so I had to share the love with y'all! 

I authored this post two weeks ago about being a sleep freak for my kids, and I never realized how much feedback I would get from it and how many of you are sleep freaks for your kids, too. I'm virtually toasting you fellow sleep freaks right now. Cheers! 

Did you catch my collaboration with Pink Blush earlier this week? You can see it here. This dress was perfect at the beach this week and oh-so-comfortable. I got so many compliments on it...and Knox was thrilled to try to pull off each and every pom-pom. 

I'm leaving y'all with a picture of this smiling, silly boy who just makes me so happy. Sometimes I just look at him and think that even though he wasn't on our timing, God sure knew what He was doing giving us this sweet boy to complete our family. He's just the happiest, sweetest, cuddliest little boy and I just love him to pieces! {And of course, his big brother, too.} 

Linking up with: AprilAmanda, Andrea and Katie
