Friday Favorites

This week we are linking up again with AndreaErika, & Narci for another fun Friday Favorites! It's been a busy, fun week, and here are some of my favorite things....


Last month we had some new headshots taken of Nataleigh for her upcoming pageants and appearances. Well we finally got our shots back, and they are perfection! My dear friend Bridgette is beyond talented, and you all need to hurry to her page & sign up for a session..like NOW!! Find her link HERE!! Here are a few of my favorite shots...

(no words)
(yes, she photoshopped a frog prince into this shot..perfection)
(those perfect little pretty feet..pageant mamas will so get this)
 (may you touch fireflies and stars, dance with fairies and talk to the moon)
(thank you Janie & Jack for this sweet princess dress..if you need another model, I'm just saying)


Bags of sunshine! Last week was Teacher Appreciation week, and let's all be real, those teachers rock! Specifically, our teachers Mrs. McInturff & Mrs. Pearson rock. We've had such a great year with the boys, and there really is no way to adequately thank them for their hard work & sacrifice. We decided to make them bags of sunshine! This past week was gloomy & rainy, and we all needed some brightness in our day! This is what we filled them with..
 Peanut M&Ms, hand soap & lotion, popcorn buckets, sponges, EOS lip balm (the best), lemon cookies, & the cutest daisy tape dispenser (total teacher need)!
I always buy the brown gift bags & then dress them up..yellow paint & a letter for each teacher, & TA-DA!!


IT Cosmetics
My mom introduced me to this make up line, and I'll be honest. I was skeptical..big time, but after watching Jamie, their founder, clean her face on national tv, & easily reapply her make up in no time at all, I was sold! Here's what I use for my 5-minute face every day..
Essential Powder Brush: the best freaking make up brush ever. Worth every penny.
IT Celebration Foundation: medium. Complete, effortless coverage.
CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder (SPF 50)
This is my foundation, and to that I add a little blush, eyeshadow, & mascara. I also never neglect to fill my brows. I have dark brows naturally, so when I add foundation, it often causes my brows to look faded. Barely filling them in with brow powder (I use brow powder from E.L.F, but I have my eye on the IT Universal pencil..find it HERE), changes my look completely!
I'm not a huge lipstick wearer. I am more likely to grab my carmex chapstick than any lipstick. {Remember when I referenced my lack of red lips earlier here} Well, this lipstick has changed my life. It goes on like a chapstick, but changes to a shade of pink that matches your skin tone perfectly. It's called Je Ne Sais Quoi, and it is necessary!


What a stinking talent this woman is!? My daughter with all of her 21st century smarts found her on YouTube kids singing her "Evolution of Disney Princesses" & we literally listen to this multiple times a day. We've listened to it so much that we sing this in the van now instead of watching movies in our DVD player. {My boys hate when this happens} I just have to tell you that I think it's precious that Nataleigh wants me to sing these to her, but I think I'll stick with the professional. Here is our most favorite video...


This shirt. My life. I need this asap. Thank goodness that I finally found one of our Dunkin Donuts that still had their $.99 refillable cups in stock. I will be refilling that thing all summer. & all God's people say...#AMEN #MomFuel
