Our Five Ring Circus: Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, my friends!

It has been a while since I shared a few of my favorite things!  I have the best intentions, but life just gets in the way sometimes. Two weeks ago, it was a broken wrist, last week it was what felt like a million appointments, and this week was the flu. 

That's right, the flu. It took Grant, Dylan and I down for a few days. Well, they are still down. I woke up with it on Wednesday and could barely function, but I bounced back much more quickly than my husband and son. Despite the lingering congestion and tiredness, I felt somewhat normal tonight. Poor Dylan, however, is currently fighting off a 105 degree fever. It came down with medication, but this mama won't be sleeping tonight!

Without further ado, here are a few things that I'm loving this week:

Friday Favorites

{Spring Style}

The colors and the trends...I'm loving it all! Warm, sunny weather just makes me so happy.  I shopped for Spring clothes over the past few weeks and I can't wait to share them all in an upcoming Mom Style post!


(I found this adorable top at TJ Maxx. They have so many cute tops this Spring!)

{Mug Love. And a cute bunny.}

My mug collection is out of control, but I can't help adding to it. I'm a sucker for holiday mugs, and my favorites come from TJ Maxx, too! This one was from last year, but they had a bunch of similar ones this year.

And the bunny!!! If you followed along on our bunny raising journey, you know that we ended up keeping 2 of the 7 babies. The other five are happily adjusting to their new homes. I'll recap that journey soon enough, but this one is all mine. Her name is Elle, and I didn't think she was going to make it for the first two weeks of her life. She was a fighter and took to following me around the house, so I had no choice but to keep her!


{EZPZ Play Mat}

This thing is AMAZING. If you don't have the EZPZ Play Mat, put it on your list of things to buy if you have kids! It seriously gets used every day. If you missed my post showcasing all the fun things we use it for, you can read it HERE. (And while you're at it, grab some Squigz!)


{Easter Socks}

Is anybody else obsessed with holiday socks? I have been since I was a kid! Now that I have my own kids, I scoop up the holiday socks from the Target Dollar Spot as soon as I spot them!


{Birthday Gifts}

My dear friend, Rich, gave me the sweetest gift for my birthday! He always manages to find things that I don't have and I end up loving everything. Sure enough, I loved these Alex and Ani charm bracelets and the Younique Lucrative Lip Gloss. (That convenient mirror attached to the side of the tube? GENIUS!)



So I'm completely new to the LulaRoe craze, but the leggings sure are comfortable! Liana sent me the sweetest package. Feature coming soon, but for now you can visit her on Instagram!


{Currently Reading}

I am loving Orphan Train! It was highly recommended, but I kept putting off reading it. It took me a while to really get started, and now I'm having a hard time putting it down! (And there's that cute bunny again and my newest Easter mug from TJ Maxx!)


{Ipad Accessories}

Even though I told Grant I didn't want any gifts from him for my birthday since I need a new camera, he insisted. My Apple-hating husband even did his research and found this amazing wireless keyboard case for my ipad pro! He hopes that I will use it more often now that it's similar to a laptop. (He was right!) He also gets bonus points for getting it in one of my favorite colors: rose gold!


{Daily Dose of Joy}

Last, but definitely not least, everybody could use a little bit of joy in their life! This kid has plenty to give!


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! What's on your agenda?


  1. I LOVE Alex&Ani! I can't wait to buy a new one this summer! The pineapple one is very cute!

  2. I was given a few Alex & Ani bracelets for Christmas and I love them! So fun! And LLR is so comfy. I got my first pait of leggings around Thanksgiving and have many more now. So much fun!

  3. I JUST finished The Orphan Train last night - LOVED IT.

  4. Happy Friday! Popping over from H54F. I'm so sorry to hear you and your family have been dealing with the flu. I hope you all bounce back fully soon! The pic of you and your boy couldn't be sweeter! Happy Birthday week! You received such beautiful and thoughtful gifts!

  5. I have a compass A&A bracelet too! Love it!

  6. The amount of LLR I have is ridiculous.

  7. Aw, that bunny is so cute!! I love LulaRoe! I need to get some more items - I did just purchase my first Classic T the other night though!


  8. SO funny and cute to see those bunny mugs. I was SO close to getting you one for our girl mom box swap. I hope you are having a great weekend!

  9. That TJ Maxx top is amazing, as is that playmat. Totally looking into it!

  10. Those socks are too cute! I love TJ Maxx and Marshalls! I live exactly 2 miles from Marshalls and I go there every week...sad I know. I will be going tomorrow since I didn't make it today. I have some free money to spend and gifts to buy! Love your new shirt and you and your son look too cute in your matching outfits!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
