Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, y'all! 

My obvious favorite this week is that I'm heading to Las Vegas today! Brandon has been there since Monday for a trade show, and I'm flying up to join him today now that it's over, and we'll spend the weekend together there. I'm so excited for a little one-on-one time with my husband! 

I have been looking for something to store Walker's books in in his room, and I haven't found anything I like, nor anything that will hold all of his books. (We have a lot -- this mama is an admitted reader!) When I was scouring Pinterest, I came across this picture and loved the book storage, and thankfully found a replica on Amazon! (Amazon to the rescue!) I can't wait to hang this in Walker's room! I'll likely get a matching one for Knox's room, too, once we change over his room from a nursery to a big-boy room.  

February was such an unusually rainy month here, so I'm so thankful that March has brought with it some sunshine. It's so hard to keep two very busy boys occupied when it's raining 24/7! Wednesday, we joined our sweet friends at the trampoline park, then all had lunch together at McDonald's and then I brought the boys home for a mid-afternoon bath and naps. They had a ball...especially because we don't frequent Mickey D's very often, ha! (And this gal is hoping and praying for a month full of spring-like temperatures and less rainy weather!) So seeing these sweet boys playing together was definitely a favorite! 

A friend of mine posted this on Instagram earlier this week, so I had to share, too. I was crying laughing! Why is this so true?! 

I have been lusting after this dress from J.Crew Factory and think I'm going to bite the bullet on it! I absolutely adore the sweet little bow trim on the sleeves and of course, the bright spring-y color! 

I hope y'all have wonderful weekends!
