Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, y'all! 

I'm so excited that we're heading to the beach this weekend! We had such a ball last year that we decided to go again this year. I can't wait to get there and enjoy some time away with my family!

In case you missed it, I shared our master bathroom reveal yesterday. You can see it here

Speaking of our master bathroom, we had two wall spaces that were just bare and needed something on them, and the bathroom needed something to warm it up so it wasn't so "cold." 

We ordered this sign to go in between the two mirrors:

And this piece to go on the wall above the tub with this wreath on top of it for layering: 

And finally, these topiaries to add some color: 

I posted about this on Monday, but I wanted to share again. If you're a boy mom, you need to read this book. I'm currently re-reading it, and I must say, it's just as eye-opening and encouraging the second time around as it was the first. Dr. James Dobson isn't afraid to break the culture mold and I'm so thankful for that. 

Who is getting up early tomorrow morning to watch Prince Harry marry Meghan Markle?! I am for sure! (And am thankful it's on a weekend and not in the middle of the week like Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding!) I can't wait to find out what their official titles will be; I'm going for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. I will be making myself a cup of tea and can't wait to see this precious fairytale come to life like a modern-day Grace Kelly. 

Precious Knox is going to be two years old on Tuesday and I honestly cannot believe it! These two years have absolutely flown by. I'm so thrilled that we will be at the beach celebrating him on his actual birthday. I love this sweet, funny, adorable, smart boy so very much! 

We haven't taken his two-year portraits yet, but can't wait to get them done next month by my friend Liz, who has taken his pictures since he was born.

I'm taking the week off to enjoy some time with my family, but will be back after Memorial Day. Have wonderful weekends and weeks, friends!

  12. Such a beautiful post! Adorable photo at the top. Your bathroom renovation is amazing - you should take up interior designing as a side line, seriously. The wedding was fabulous, wasn't it? I definitely see her as a modern Grace Kelly with an edge - the first royal highness to address the UN, pretty cool. Enjoy your holiday!
