Friday Favorites #81

Happy Friday Foxy Friends! It's my first full 5 day work week in 3 weeks, rough times...haha, just kidding, sort of. Anyway, here are some of my favorites from the week.

In case you missed it on the blog this week.

Monday: Christmas In July Gift Exchange
Tuesday: What's in My Make-Up Stash
Wednesday: Styling my favorite flowy polka dot skirt
Thursday: Sentence A Day: July Edition

One of the most exciting things to happen this week? I won $250 gift card to Nordstrom! Woo hoo, thank you Alison @ Get Your Pretty On! Alison is the one who got me to update my wardrobe and got me into wanting to dress myself pretty with her Style Challenges. See all of my style challenges here. I tried to see if I could return some of my previously bought purchases and use her gift card instead, but almost everything I wanted was sold out, wah, wah. Oh well, just means I get more stuff right? Anyway, here is everything I have bought and kept so far.

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 (no longer available) // 9

How about a new list for you all? The things I was super disappointed not to get, since I don't have a Nordstrom card (surprising right?) So I had to wait, I did wait up till midnight, had everything ready to go and didn't get Number 3...I was so bummed not to get that pretty sweater in that pink color, but I guess the jacket up above will suffice. I did get #1 and #2, but the #1 made my legs look funny, they were slightly too tall for my short legs, and #2, holy cow I did not read that they were 5.5" tall! I already had surgery on my ankle, as much as it pains me I have to return them, they are just not practical to wear with children and walking upright. Other things I got, Mr. hated and thought they were too big. In general he doesn't like when things are super big on I liked this shirt, but he said NO way!

I also got my sister and Mom something, but they occasionally read the blog, so in order to surprise them they'll just have to wait to find out!

OH and Mr. sent me this picture with the caption...Intervention? Oops!

Legoland last weekend was a BLAST! I took the kids on Thursday and met up with my cousin, who was spending two nights there, we went home on Thursday night and came back Friday ready to spend the night at the hotel, my review here, and go for another round.


We also went to the water park, which I didn't take any pictures because...well water and I don't have a water proof camera.  But for the most part I think if your kids aren't over 48 inches it's not really worth it...if you are shorter you have to wear a life jacket (which probably doesn't fit) in the fun parts and the other parts that don't require it are so crowded that little kids just get lost in there. I would feel more comfortable taking an older child.

We're watching the 4D Lego movie. The kids loved it.


All the little cousins together again.

The older cousins, plus a baby.

OH and in case you wanted to know the new ride Ninjago...went on that 6 times...over the course of the 3 days. And I was a winner 6 times...that's me on the bottom right photo.

This is what happens when Mr. is in charge...he shoves as many kids on a small stroller as possible and runs around like a maniac.

Oh and in case you were wondering, we were all there to celebrate my cousin's little girls 6th birthday.  So happy we could all go and help celebrate.

Much need night out with this many laughs and three hours later I'm recharged and ready to tackle life again.

Who's excited for the Olympics? The human interest stories are my favorite and I cry almost every time.

I'm fairly certain all weekend and for the coming couple of weeks we'll be glued to our TV. We just love every part of it, and if we didn't have to adult we would stay up all night watching all of it, even the quarter finals for skeet shooting, cause we're weird like that.

Are you as excited as we are? Happy Olympics watching weekend!
