Friday Favorites!!!

Friday, May 13, 2016

TGIF!  I started thinking about it this morning and realized I have only one more Friday standing between me and summer freedom!  The last day for teachers is Thursday, May 26, so next Friday is our last one!  This school year is flying by and I hope that this summer crawls by :)

I've got a few FAVORITES that I'll be sharing today!


This is my latest smoothie recipe and it's a FAVORITE because it tastes so good.  The pictures quality isn't great because this was taken so early in the morning, but you can still see the ingredients I use.  
L to R: Vanilla Protein Powder that I use (I only use one scoop so it's only 55 calories), frozen berries, vanilla bean Greek yogurt (I use 1/4 cup), and spinach. Then I add in water before I blend....yum!  The key is to use the berries because I tried using the pineapple and mango mixture and it didn't mask the spinach taste.


The Crown Selection Series by Kiera Cass
I'm almost halfway through The Crown, and this series is such a FAVORITE for me that I'm loving this book so much.  I've written about this series before, but if you like The Bachelor and the Royal family, you'll love this book.  Sadly, I think this book might be the last one of the series (hope not!), and if so, I hope to find something like it.  My girls love reading this series and it's a wholesome series for them to read--nothing inappropriate about it at all.


Lilly Pulitzer Dusk dress
I wrote about this dress in a Sense of Sarah post on Tuesday, but it's a FAVORITE.  I love how light the fabric is, how flowy it is, and how bright the pattern is.  We have a wedding to attend next Saturday and you better believe I'll be wearing this!


The off the shoulder tops this spring/summer are my new FAVORITE look and my goal is to get at least one to wear this summer.

 I am in love with this pink Lilly top.  After I bought my new dress last weekend, I was flipping through the catalog and showed Dustin this top.  This will look great with the new white jeans I just bought.

This JCrew top is a little cheaper than above and I love the simplicity of the fabric.  I would wear this with blue jeans or pull off a white on white look with my white jeans.  AND it's 25% off!  Okay, I've talked myself into getting this!  
P.S If you're a teacher, they give a 15% off discount and it sometimes works on special sale promotions!


Dustin and I get to babysit tonight!  My friend has a school banquet to attend, so we are watching her 3 month old!  Keeping Elizabeth will always be a FAVORITE!  My mom and Dustin watched her last Thursday while I was out of town at The Avett Brothers concert, so I'm glad I'll actually be home to babysit this time ha!
