Friday Favorites #9 - The Softest Sweater And Some Flower Fields

 Happy Friday Foxy Friends! So many pictures, so let's just get to it.

I want to shout it from the roof tops, everyone NEEDS this cardigan. Yes the all caps is totally necessary. It's the softest thing you'll buy for under $32 (it's $29.99 but with tax, ya know). Comes in different colors and patterns, just go get one, you won't regret it.

Jeans / Sweater / Shirt (similar)

My earrings are from my girl Jackie over at BEXO, I don't see these exact ones any more, but she has some other great options.

Sorry about the poor quality of photos, I went to take these pictures and Mr. calls me from Baby Fox's baseball practice, realizing he can't fit all of the equipment, that I drove over there because he was going to be late, in his two seater convertible car. So I had about 2 seconds to take these photos, and didn't have a chance to check focus, clearly I failed...I'll do better next time. Anyway, the shirt is from Sweetly Striped, I know I buy too much from her, but it's all too cute, and I like supporting small businesses. She has this cute romper that she just put up on the site that I might have to go get too.

Last Friday I took the kids to the Flower Fields and the pictures turned out so great! Someone on my FB commented how their kids would never take smily pictures like that, I told them it was years of yelling at them they couldn't leave until I got the picture I wanted. They've finally conceded and just smile because the know the torture will end sooner. haha, I like to think of it as good family time. LOL. We did get lost in a Sweet Pea maze for about 20 minutes.

But I did get some really great photos of them.

I tried to get some with me and the kids, Mr. had to work, and asking other people to take pictures is weird, I get pictures like this: Was thinking it would be more cropped in on our faces, so that you would see all the pretty pictures behind us...not so much.

I did crop this one and it turned out pretty good.

We did get one good one.

And then of course some selfies.

And the some really silly ones too.

Sustenance for the 2 hours we were there.

Not sure what they were doing here.

Don't worry I rewarded them with some In and Out for lunch.

Okay we'll move on from the flower field pictures now.

Other things we did: 

Made some homemade sourdough bread

Started up with Friday Night Lights, it was so good to see the boys play again, they won! 

Saturday was baseball, we held in there for a long time, but ended up losing at the very end of the game by 1, darn.

Afterward we stayed to watch a friends t-ball game, it was the cutest, the kids got some lunch from the snack bar, they loved it.

Sunday Mini Fox had horseback riding lessons, she's finally starting to gain her confidence back after falling off a month or so ago.

Sunday night we surprised my dad showing up with dinner and dessert for his birthday. That was on Friday, but we couldn't celebrate then because of Friday Night Lights and Saturday night he was at a track meet.

Monday we started school full time! It was wonderful and the kids are loving it. Not loving having to be woken up, since we went to school in the afternoon for Hybrid, but loving that they get to be with all of their friends. Adjusting to me having to make lunches for them the night before, not so much, lol!

Made some chicken salad with homemade mayo that a friend gave us from the eggs her chickens laid, it was delicous!

Tuesday was another baseball game, and we won! Finally, the boys have been working so hard, and their work finally paid off. 

Do you ever find a pair of workout shoes and just love them so much you keep buying them? No? Just me? It always takes me forever to find a good pair of running shoes. I finally found them! I've bought these 3 times! This picture was taken back in January. And here I am needing to replace them again, I went to buy them, and they are $30 off! What? Yes please? But then that makes me fee like they are getting rid of them, and trying to clear them I bought another pair...which makes me buying this shoe 4 times. I might even buy another one if I notice that they are selling out of the sizes.

I have to admit though, one pair I just keep for upstairs, so when I am working out in my bedroom or the office, which both have carpet, I only wear those shoes, so they don't get dirty on the bottom. So those I haven't worn too much.

I had these almonds the other day at a friends house and they were so dang good! They got them at Costco, but were sold out, so I bought some for us...I had no idea Almonds came in different flavors. If you are making a charcuterie board, these would be a fantastic addition to it.

I've been looking around for some good jean shorts, these are so comfy and perfect for summer! They come in a ton of different colors, are stretchy and not tight on the waist and for $26.99, they are a great deal! I'll try and take a picture of me in them soon. The pictures do not do them justice, it has 6,651 4.5 star ratings...pretty dang good for a piece of clothing if you ask me. The fit true to size, I wear a medium in shorts and these fit well. I could probably wear a small because of the stretch, but they're shorts and I like to be comfy.

Okay, that's all I have for today. This weekend Mini Fox has her First Holy Communion retreat (outside), and then next weekend she gets her First Holy Communion, with restrictions, etc, we have to pair it down a lot, so it's just close family coming. It will be the first time we step foot inside of church. We've been watching our church that they stream on YouTube and sat outside once for Easter, we're excited to be getting back.

Have a great weekend!
