Friday Faves + Reminder


This week flew by and I'm not complaining about it, and as always I'm overly excited about the weekend. Who isn't right? Here's the reminder- Next Wednesday is our 2nd Monthly Faves link up. Last months was great, and I can't wait to see everything you've been loving in July. So mark your calendars and join in with Kelli and I!

I have a few highlights, moments and loves to share with you from my week. 


Improvements. This guy, my little bro, smiled using BOTH sides of his mouth! Why is this so exciting? Since the accident almost 1 year ago, he's barely moved his entire left side at all and any smiles have been crooked using his right side only. Then, mom called me last night and yesterday he started moving and lifting his left leg & arm! This is a HUGE improvement my friends, what a fighter he is!  #prayformayberry

Date nights. Dustin and I enjoyed a movie & ice cream date night Sunday evening. It's the little things. 

Killing our workouts. I told you last week we hired a personal trainer for the next 3 months. We started Monday and we are loving it, like can't wait to go each night! Even though it's super tough and we've been very sore, we still love it. Are we weird? 

This mani. If you follow me on Insta, you've seen this already- I was in a fun mood one night this week and decided to do a little something extra with my nails. Insert multi pinks and leopard. I fell in love. I did an easy leopard tutorial a year ago, check it out here. I swear it's easy, and adorable.

Easy + Delicious, sign me up. This has become a favorite recipe in our house. It's easy, so delicious and full of flavor and it's wonderful as leftover too. Win. Shay has supplied us with so many yummy dishes, find this one here

I have to share this pic too, how gorgeous is this sunset I snapped from our patio this week? I was in awe.


As always, enjoy your weekend loves!
