Friday Favorites #8

Happy Friday Foxy Friends! Today is my day off and the kids have only at home work because they're going back to school full time next week! So they had to take today to change the classrooms over to accommodate all of the kids. So excited, I'm taking the kids to lunch and to some flower fields to hopefully get some amazing pictures. This was the last time we went.

Okay onto my favorites of the week.

I'm joining the ladies again from #StyledAcrossTheStates for another week, this week we're styling dresses. During the summer I pretty much live in dresses, they are just so easy, not constricting and keeps you cool. This is my newest one that I got from my Sweetly Striped. I know I keep talking about Jessica's shop, but I just can't help but buy everything! I swear I get nothing from promoting her, I just really love her shop!

This dress is just too cute. I do have to get it altered a bit in the straps, and looking at these pictures, I think I'm going to get the hem taken up a bit. With short legs I'm constantly getting things altered.

Dress / Shoes (similar)/ Jacket (Similar) / Earrings (got them from here, they are no longer available but have other great options) / Bracelets (Sweetly Striped...again) / Necklace (Sweetly Striped, are we surprised at this point?)

I've been all about the dainty necklaces lately, this one fits the bill perfectly.

The easiest way to pull a look together is a jean jacket. Old Navy has some great options. I like having longer ones and cropped ones depending on your outfit.

You can't tell from above, but I just love the mini striped detail on this dress.

Today is my Dad's birthday! He's turning 75! I couldn't imagine a better Grandpa for my kids, he is constantly picking them up from school and taking them for French fries (Pre Covid), hopefully that starts up again soon! Goes to all the games and sometimes practices too.

Things happening around our house lately. Mr. and I got a new mattress. We decided to try and mattress in a box. I'll let you know how we like it. Our first night was Thursday night, so I'll let you know.

We had Indian food the other night and forgot how much we loved it. But it was quite pricey, so we decided to try and make it in our own. By we, I mean me...I made Mr. found the recipe. I made Tiki Masala, homemade Naan and garlic butter rice, it was so delicious, and it will be happening again!

Our towel rack Mr. is trying to fix it, see the next picture.

He rigged it upside down and filled the base with cement...two days later and it's still drying, I'll keep you posted.

I'm making a cup for a friend, thought I'd share how I made them. I spray paint a cup.

Glitter it

Epoxy it, and then add some quote or pictures to's currently still spinning so I can't show you the finished product yet. Check out my IG in a couple of days and you'll probably see the finished product.

We have some new friends in our garden...hopefully we get to see them turn into butterflies.

Got my second shot on Monday and I'm so happy to be done, 11 more days and I'll be fully vaccinated! A lot of our friends are getting their second shots soon, so we can maybe start seeing more friends soon! At least go out to dinner! Happy for that, and hoping the numbers continue to go down where I live.

The kids are in Kindness Club at school (via Zoom) and each week they have a specific task of kindness to try and do, this week was to make food for someone. Mini Fox made me my favorite lemonade and Baby Fox made me a fruit bowl.

 Other then that, life is starting to pick back up. Slowly starting to get busy. This kid has sports 6 days a week, but he never complains about it. Baseball, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday.

Football on Thursday and Fridays.

This girl has horseback riding too. She really wants to get back to gymnastics, so hopefully when Mr. and I fully vaccinated and Baby Fox is down to one sport we can start her back up in that!

Mini Fox's riding pants, under $25, in case you need a pair. Good quality and comfortable, she loves them.

Alright, I think that's it for this post. A lot of pictures I know. Thanks for sticking with me. See you all next week!

Friday Favorites #7

 Hi Foxy Friends! Happy Friday! I took two-ish days off this week and it was great! Let's get straight to our favorites, there's a lot this week.

Last Friday Mr. and I celebrated 16 years of marriage. Crazy to think that our marriage can drive! We didn't do much, hung out with some friends, normal Friday night things. No out to dinner yet, but we will as soon as we are both fully vaccinated. I couldn't imagine going through 13+ months of quarantine with anyone else.

While Baby Fox was at his baseball game, this girl went with my parents to see my brother, and she was having such a great time. When did she turn a teenager? She's 7 guys! OH and this outfit, deal of the century! It was originally $58 and then it was marked down to $11, and then because I returned an Amazon thing to Kohl's I got a $5 off coupon. Yep that's right I paid $6 for this jumper! She LOVES it and couldn't wait to wear it to see her uncle.

I need to remember to take pictures of Baby Fox playing baseball, instead of all video. I promised the family I would get donuts twice and didn't follow through, so I finally got it on the first day of Spring Break. I think these might be the best donuts I've had locally. Those chocolate cake donuts, are SO dang good, worth every calorie. Don't worry we shared with my parents and sister. The place told me it was cheaper to get a dozen donuts then to just get the 8 donuts that I wanted.

Easter we went back to Church! We went to my parents church that has this huge grassy area and everyone sat in lawn chairs. It was perfect way to celebrate Easter.

Mini Fox loves sticking her tongue out in pictures.

The Easter bunny at our house comes while you're at church, he knows when you go and comes to your house while you are gone. They kids couldn't wait to see if he came after church.

He came and gave them some great goodies.

Yearly family Easter pictures.

There's that tongue again....

My parents, forgot to get a picture of all of us, darn.

Wednesday we finally got to see our cousins. It's been a long 13 months. We have never gone that long without seeing each other. The kids were so dang excited.

Yes the water was freezing, but they went in anyways.

Yes the beach was really this empty. All the adults were wearing sweatshirts. Forgot to take a picture of us...ooops.

Back again this week linking up on IG for the #styleacrossthestates. This week the prompt was styling jeans. I decided to show you my go to favorite look, I either wear it with jeans or shorts, what I wear almost daily...that is if I get dressed out of my workout clothes.

I might own this shirt in no less than 8 colors, and when it wears out I buy it again. They are light weight but are not see through. They are thin, so if you aren't careful they will get those holes near the bottom. But I'm pretty good about doing the half tuck so my jean button doesn't rub against the shirt. I'm sort of obsessed with light wash jeans right now too.

Jeans (similar) / Shirt / Shoes

chain bracelet (similar) / white bracelet (similar) / gold beaded (similar)

Most likely I'm probably wearing a sweater, so I add any sort of long cardigan with it. This is currently my favorite and is probably the softest thing you'll ever wear. Oh my gosh, I just went to look it up, and it comes in so many different patterns, there is a pumpkin one, I think I NEED it!

And here is my daily dose of me trying to pretend I'm a model and posing in a different spot then I normally do.

Alright, that's all I have...oh wait here is the status of Baby Fox's black eye from last week. Getting better everyday.

And with that picture I'll leave you to your weekend! Hope you have a great one! We don't have much planned, some dinner with friends and that's about it.
