Friday Highlights 2016 V15

Another crazy week has came and gone. I would say this one was a little less busy, a little more emotional and equally exhausting. But wahoo, we survived another school week and we are now that much closer to summer break.

Let’s take a look at this weeks Friday picks.

I am so very flattered and thankful for this invitation.
Be sure to go check out my feature and leave these ladies some love too!

{Kids Swimwear}

Come summer time the girls and I pretty much live at the pool so having a variety of bathing suits for the girls is a must.
Here are a few we are loving so far for this year.

{Iced Coffee}

When the weather gets warmer I switch up my coffee routine and start drinking iced coffee followed by more iced coffee. 

Last year I posted how you can easily brew amazing iced coffee at home using a simple method that is fast, easy and doesn’t require anything more than a basic coffee pot.

Check it out!

{Utility Vest}

Some of my favorite blogging friends have been giving me fashion envy. Seriously y’all I am probably the least trendy girl you will meet but now I am all like “ooohhh I need a utility vest and some Chuck Taylors” I blame people like Becky, Meghan and Whitney

The other day after telling Becky I “needed” a utility vest she pointed me in the direction of this one, 5% off, free shipping. I just can’t decide if I should get it or not. I do still have some birthday $ stashed away. 

What do you think?

Friday Linkups

  • Jessica

    Those swim suits are adorable. We are ready for pool season too. And I can’t wait ot see the kids in their new suits they got from the Easter bunny. That utility vest is awesome. I saw Meghan’s and have been debating if I need it too. πŸ™‚

    • Pool season simply can’t come quick enough. I love watching my little fish swim. I really think I need the vest and I ordered it but Target cancelled my order. I am worried it may be out of stock :(.

  • Amy Smith

    We are so ready for pool season! I’ve been eyeing utility vests & jackets, too! I just don’t know if I’m cool enough. haha!

    • You are SO totally cool enough. If I am, I know you are!

  • Cat @

    Those swim suits are so cute! Just signed my oldest up for the next round of swim lessons so we’ll be logging some time at the pool soon too πŸ™‚

    • So fun! I think we are going to do two sets of swim lessons for each of the girls this summer too. I can’t wait for the end of May to get here!

  • I love that utility vest!
    Enjoy your weekend!!! XOXO

  • Heather Bramlett

    I have that same utility vest from Target and I love it! Go get girl!!
    Have a FANTASTIC weekend!

    • Thank you!
      I am trying but Target cancelled my order. I think it may be out of stock now :(.

  • Meghan Flinn

    I’m glad I could tempt you into getting a vest! And yes, buy that target one immediately!!!

    • #enabler

      I am TRYING but Target cancelled my order. I think it may be out of stock or something. I looked and it didn’t say anything so I tried again also cancelled. I tried one last time…. we will see but it seems it is not meant to be.

  • Make the splurge and get the vest!! I think it’s something you can wear year round, with the exception of Summer simply because it’s too hot!

    • So you know I ordered it and then Target cancelled my order. I am so worried it is out of stock. #dangit

  • Im putting that vest in my cart now haha! You are so sweet πŸ™‚ Im headed to the Blended Blog right now!

    • Best of luck on the vest. I keep trying to get my order to go through but dang Target keeps cancelling it. I think it may be out of stock :'(.

  • I bet that vest would look great on you!

  • That leopard bathing suit is beyond adorable! I need to try your iced coffee recipe. I always spend a ton of money on it in the summer, but I’ve never had luck making my own.

    • Definitely try out my method. It is like a quick form of cold brewing and saves us a TON of money.

    Aww, I love Sarah and can’t wait to read your feature on the blended blog!! Love those swimsuits. That Minnie one just screams EMILY!! I am so on the search for a good vest like that. Happy Friday, friend! I hope you guys have an amazing weekend.

    • Isn’t her family adorable?! Yes it sure does. She has it and a towel and flip flops to match it and couldn’t possibly be more excited about that. I hope your weekend is going great friend!

  • That utility vest is super cute; I agree!! I’ve been keeping an eye out for swimsuits too. I like to get suits with sleeves for Stella; she’s so fair skinned! Hope ya’ll have a great weekend!

    • So cute, right?! Too bad it seems to be out of stock :(. Childrens Place usually has some great options on the sleeved suits. My red headed niece is the same way and still wears them at 7!

  • yeah, Becky’s style rocks. I totally want to save all the pictures of her outfits from instagram to try to recreate them, since I have no style….

    • You and me both! I need Becky to go shopping with me.

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    Go for the utility vest, and splurge on some Chucks!!

    • I tried to get the vest but dang Target keeps cancelling my order… it must be out of stock :'(. That stinks so bad.

  • Whitney Jordan

    We’re on the same page with the iced coffee switch this time of year! It’s my favorite treat. Well, that and cookies πŸ™‚ I’ve loved picking out cute suits for the kids this year and haven’t really given much thought to my own suit. LOVE that utility vest. I’ve tried on several, but have yet to find THE ONE. That one is a cute one and not a bad price since it’s something you’d wear a ton in a variety of seasons. Hope you have a great weekend πŸ™‚

    • Iced coffee AND cookies, even better. I tried to order the vest, but Target keeps cancelling my order. I am assuming that is because it is out of stock :(. So sad about that one friend.

      Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

  • My daughter just bought a military vest and it is so cute, but she’s a stinking extra small, so I can’t wear it. I am fashion challenged, as well, and am learning I borrow WAY more from my daughter’s closet than she does from me. Thank goodness for teenage daughters. You’ll see…

    • Baha ha! Oh goodness I almost can’t wait for those days to get here now :D!

  • Jessica White

    My girls are just like your girls, once summer hits we live in the pool. Those are some cute swimsuits. I still need to go buy a few more suits for them for this summer. I have never tried iced coffee – crazy I know- so I will have to try your recipe out soon. Have a great weekend.

    • Life at the pool is just the best, right?! We find the girls need to have at least 5 suits each summer the good news is they don’t need to many other clothes ;).

      WHAT?! Girl you HAVE to fix this :D.

  • I have been debating the utility vest for a while now, but I’m going to go with and stick to, I think it looks better on other people. I’m afraid it’s going to make me look shorter than I already am…and thanks for being featured! Loved having you over on TBB. That Minnie swim suit, love it! I actually tried to buy Mini Fox one, but couldn’t find a one piece…I think she definitely needs another swim suit!

    • See I was so worried that it wouldn’t be long enough for me. Baha ha! We have the opposite problem. I tried to order it, but it seems to be out of stock :(. I’ll take that as a sign it wasn’t meant to be. She totally needs another Minnie suit!!!!

  • Ashley

    Obviously I’m way behind on blogs…I blame Finnley πŸ˜‰

    I went to check out the vest because I want to get on that train too and it’s sold out!!!!

    • Oh girl I always feel SO behind too.

      Yeah, I missed it as well I ordered it and then the jerks cancelled my order :'(. Broke my heart in two.
