Friday Favorites

Hello Friends!  And Happy Friday!!  

I am linking up with the fabulous Narci, Andrea and Erika for Friday Favorites!

A couple of weeks ago I hosted an online Thirty-One party with my blog buddy Justine =)  Yesterday all of the orders came in and I was so excited to dive into the boxes and see what was inside =)

I loved going through everyone's orders to see what they ordered.  They all got some great stuff!
Here is what I got.

I love it all =)  The cross necklace and the small pink purse were party of the "mystery bundle" I ordered, and they are both so cute.  Thank you again Justine for all you did for this party!!
The other day our dryer broke.  Rather than spend the money to have someone come out to the house and fix it, mind you it was almost 12 years old, we opted to just buy a new one.  Once we got home I was helping Brian move the old one out, and it really made me cringe to see our washer and dryer didn't match.  I know I know...but our washer was also 12 years old and to be honest it was time for new ones.  So Brian called Lowes and had them deliver the washer that matched =)

Now they match =)  And they both do so much more than my old washer and dryer did.  I never thought I would get excited about a new washer and dryer. Ha!
Whitney from Polka-Dotty Place shared a recipe the other day for a turkey done in the crock-pot.  I saw that and thought it was the most genius thing ever!  So the next day I decided to make it.  

It was so easy.  And it was absolutely delicious!  

I took the girls out a few days ago to take some pictures of them.  It has been an entire year since I did photos of them.  And let me tell was a horrible experience! ha!  Alyx was not in the mood to have pictures done, and Emma just wanted to go home. lol  Thankfully somehow I was able to get a few good ones.  

I'll share them all next week sometime, but here is a sneak peak of them =)  

I have a short Friday Favorites this week, but I will be back on Monday with hello Monday so make sure to grab the graphic and linkup!  

Monday I will also be sharing what I received from the Coffee Mug Swap! 

I hope you all have a great Friday and an awesome weekend!!

  4. Fun stuff!! Love your family pictures & your 31 bags!! I need someone to invent a fancy dryer that folds the clothes, too!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. I love your new 31 bags!! Hope you have a great Friday!

  6. 31 has the best bags. I have so many and use them nearly every day.

  7. 31 bags are stinking amazing. I need some more in my life. THAT picture, all the heart eyes. You can't tell they weren't into it at all!

  8. Hilarious that you ended up with a new washer to match the new dryer. I would have totally wanted the same thing!!
    I had to laugh about your photos of the girls - that picture is a great one! But, I totally get it. That's exactly how I feel every. single. Sunday when I take my kid's weekly pics. Somehow, by the grace of God we are usually able to come up with a few photos that will work!
