Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, y'all! Hope everyone had a great week. 

Here are a few of my favorites today: 

The boys started summer camp at their preschool on Tuesday! {Insert "The Hallelujah Chorus" here.} They had a great time and it was nice to be on my own for the first time in nearly a month! 

The boys' shirts are from Target, but I can't find them online anymore. I did see them in-store this week! 

Something fun we're doing this summer is taking part in the "Summer Movie Fun" program at Harkins Theaters. At our local theater, it's 10 movies for 10 weeks and the pass for the entire set of movies is $7 per pass! So for $21, we can see 10 movies at 9:45 a.m. each week. The movie runs in three theaters for one week; you pick the day you want to attend. The best part? No previews! This isn't sponsored at all -- I just wanted to share a great find! (If you don't have this specific theater chain near you, check to see if your local chain does. It's a great thing to do on a hot day!) 

The boys had a great time at our first movie of the season, "Happy Feet!" 

Did you catch my Father's Day gift guide? If you missed it, you can see it here. Every man on your list is sure to love something on this list! 

The Peach Truck recently visited our town and we got a lot of delicious Georgia peaches from them! In trying to find some healthier options to make with them, I found this recipe and made healthy peach muffins -- and they were SO GOOD! They lasted all of three days in our house. The picture doesn't do them justice. 

This week's Amazon favorites: 

+ This granola 
Y'all, this stuff is delicious! My best friend told me about it and I found some at Target to try it out. And we LOVED it. So much so that I tried to find some at Costco, but they were out. So, I ordered it on Amazon (six bags). We eat it every night with low-carb yogurt, some fruit (either blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or strawberries), chia seeds and hemp hearts. I seriously look forward to our little dessert all day! (Does that make me lame?!) 

+ This rug 
I am on a mission to add a touch of modern to our home and started with this cotton rug. I layered our doormat over it on our front porch and love the look! 

+ These water beads + these accompanying tools 
I had an Instagram friend tell me about water beads, and since I'm on the mission for some hands-on, tactile, screen-free activities for the boys this summer, I scooped these up in a heartbeat. The boys love them! I found little Tupperware containers to put them in and they have had so much fun with them! 

+ This book 
My brother-in-law told me about it and it's so interesting! If you're interested in the enneagram stuff, you'll love this book. Brandon is actually reading it for work; he's in sales, as is his brother (who told me about the book), and it's a neat way for them to learn about relating to people completely opposite of them. My brother-in-law told me that he read about the "1's" and said all he could think about was me...ha! I'm a "1," that's for sure!

  1. What an awesome movie deal! I wish some local theaters did something like that around here. My boys and I love going to the movies but I rarely think of doing that since it can get quite costly with the 4 of us.

  2. Had no clue that tools for the water beads exist! Those are perfect! Yall have a good weekend!

  3. You guys are going to have the most fun summer! I love the movies - especially when it's too hot outside! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. Ok water beads for the win now and oh this book sounds amazing!!

  5. That movie deal sounds amazing!! My kiddo only makes it about half way through a movie then he's done but maybe with no previews he'd make the entire movie.

  6. OMG!!! How amazing is that movie program?? I wish we had something like that! x
