Friday Favorites

I looked down at the date yesterday as I was writing this post and realized that June is already half way over. How that is even possible is beyond me. I feel like time is flying by so much faster than it used to. It is insane. Anyways, we don’t really have anything specifically on the books for this weekend. We will be celebrating Chris’s first Father’s Day! So that is exciting.

Favorite Moments: Laura and I met up for lunch on Tuesday. We decided on Shiki because we both had a hankering for some sushi!!! We split the spicy tuna rolls, and I got coconut soup and massaman chicken. SO GOOD! Plus, we parked in a parking deck a few blocks away and walked so I ended up hitting my step goal very easily that day. Hurray!

I unexpectedly got to spend some time with one of my nephews this week too! He didn’t want to go on his field trip at camp so he hung out with Zoe and I one day. We got to play another game of Life and Zoe playing on the floor with him and listening to him read her books. She kept reaching out and patting his belly and trying to tickle his neck. It was the cutest thing ever.

I ordered some Baby Bjorn bibs from Target for Zoe. Trust me, when they start eating foods…just get these!!! They make life so much easier and really cut down on the laundry. That link takes you to the specific colored ones (green and pink) I got that were on sale for way less than anywhere else. I couldn’t resist this watermelon sunsuit when I placed my order. It was only $7.99. How cute is she going to look in this????

Zoe is in to selfies now haha. She loves seeing herself in the pictures so we make all kinds of goofy no make-up faced ones. I love to hear her giggles.

Favorite Recipe: I love making fried rice at home. This quinoa version looks like a healthier way to do it!

Quinoa Veggie Fried Rice with Egg and Scallions


Favorite Lust: I picked up a black and white striped sleeveless swing dress from the Loft outlet last weekend. I didn’t really care for the other prints that they had there but realized that the regular loft has some solid colored ones right now. I really want to scoop those up! I really like the pomegranate color, and they are 40% off!

How cute is this cold shoulder one???

Or this Lou and Gray casual one???

The Loft gets me every time!

Favorite Funnies:

I wonder how many people see me in "suggested friends" and are like "fuck that asshole"...

Hate when that happens.

    That watermelon suit for Zoe is sooo cute! It looks like she has so much fun hanging out with her cousin. I love t-shirt dresses, or basically anything you can just throw on and go. And lol at that cheat meal meme– so me sometimes! haha

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders June 16, 2017 at 9:46 am

    I’m totally with you on being obsessed with Loft! I was so glad when I saw that they were having a sale because I was able to get a few maternity outfits because I know that there’s no way that I’ll be able to wear normal clothes the whole time! And oh my goodness that watermelon swimsuit is too cute! I swear Chris is going to be in so much trouble when we know genders because I’m going to crazy with all of the cute clothes!

    I can’t wait to see Z in her watermelons! Also, that adult meme, just LOOK. LOLOLOL. I almost fell out of my chair at work. Those dresses are too cute, especially the white one. I might have to treat yoself this weekend to that one.

    All those memes are my life- especially the suggest friend one and the Mr. Rogers one. Ha.
    I feel like swing dresses never look good on me, but those are all so cute!! I love the cold shoulder one!
    So cute with Zoe and her cousin!!

    Your lunch date sounds awesome! Love massaman chicken and I just got my sushi fix last night for dinner. The watermelon outfit is adorable! Hope Chris enjoys his first Father’s day tomorrow!

  • Reply Jess June 18, 2017 at 1:18 pm

    I see those bibs all the time and should probably get them.. every meal is such a mess! She hardly even eats anything but makes a huge mess. Loft’s 40% off sale is tempting right now, but I just placed an order with Uniqlo… trying to be strong.

  • Reply Allison Arnone June 19, 2017 at 11:01 am

    I never was a Loft fan but lately I’ve been getting such cute stuff from there! Also your food from the sushi place looks SO good – now I want sushi!

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! June 20, 2017 at 3:40 pm

    Ooooh I miss the sushi!!! But this little gal makes the sushi worth the wait!

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family June 21, 2017 at 3:13 pm

    Such a cute little watermelon outfit! And I am definitely planning to get the Baby Bjorn bibs! We already have the OXO ones that are similar to that as well as the Tommee Tippee ones. We decided to go with all wipeable bibs instead of fabric ones. They aren’t as cute, but seem way more practical!
