Hey, y’all!  Happy Friday!  It’s time to share a few favorites!

O N E – The Best Beach/Pool Sandals

Last year, these sandals took social media by storm, and they were absolutely everywhere!  I wanted them in white, but couldn’t get my hands on a pair as they sold out quickly, so I bought them in lavender instead.  I love these sandals!  They’re easy to slip on and off, hands-free, they are so comfy – they don’t slip on your feet! – and they’re made of plastic, so you can easily rinse them off after a day at the beach.   

Target has fully restocked them this year, and they are available in a rainbow of colors, including some new floral options.  A couple of the colors are already sold out, so if you wanted to get your hands on these last year, and you couldn’t, it’s time to jump on it!  Oh, and did I mention that they’re only $10?  I grabbed them in white about a month ago, so I’m all set for summatime!


T W O – Girls Easter Dress

Easter may not be here until April, but I’m already planning!  I spotted this sweet flutter-sleeve dress at Target last week, and I went ahead and grabbed one for Olivia to wear for Easter.  She has a dress almost identical to this one that she wore for Easter a couple of years ago, and it was one of my favorite dresses that she ever owned.  It is so precious.  She has long outgrown that one, so I grabbed this dress in purple and white gingham for Easter this year.  She absolutely loves it, too!  For some reason, Target doesn't have a stock photo of the purple and white gingham option, so I'm using the stock photo for the pink one instead.  The purple and white one that we bought is so much cuter, though, in my opinion!


T H R E E – Pink Sequin Dress

I think I shared this dress the blog last year sometime, but I thought it was worth sharing again because it’s currently on clearance!  Olivia has a Daddy/Daughter dance coming up, and she can’t wait to wear her pink sparkly dress!  This would be a great choice for Easter, a Daddy/Daughter dance, a birthday party, or any other special event.  I mean, if I’m being honest, Olivia has enjoyed wearing hers to church, too.  Haha.


F O U R – Easter Lego Set

Lego has released their new Easter set for 2023, and it’s absolutely precious.  These make perfect Easter gifts for any kid who loves Lego, and since the sets are so small, they fit perfectly in an Easter basket.  Be sure to purchase ASAP, though, because these holiday sets always sell out fast!


F I V E – Larabar Double Chocolate Truffle

I’ve mentioned my love for Larabars a ton of times here on the blog, and I found a new flavor that I absolutely love.  These Double Chocolate Truffle Larabars are delicious, and they’re made with only six real ingredients, so you can rest assured that you’re not putting a bunch of yucky stuff in your body.  They’re plant based, they’re gluten free, they’re vegan, they have no artificial sweeteners, and they’re a great source of fiber.  These make for a great snack on the go, and I highly recommend this flavor!

*Linking up with A Little Bit of Everything for Friday Favorites.


  1. Are those shoes comfortable? I kind of wanted the real Birks, but $10 sounds much better!

  2. Those dress are all so cute!! Eeek! I suppose I should start keeping an eye out for Easter stuff as well. Those memes... especially the Beauty and the Beast one... because same. Hahaha.

  3. Great funnies and I love the sweet Easter dresses! Isn’t it crazy I do not like the Larabars! I love lots of protein bars but something about those. But maybe I would like that flavor! Happy Weekend!

  4. I need those sandals for summer! I've got an old pair of Jelly sandals from Gap that I use but I like what you shared better--much easier to take on and off at the pool. Have a great weekend!

  5. I love those fun! Enjoy the long weekend.

  6. Yay for new sandals! And I feel like that chicken finger meme still applies to my kids even though they're teens!!

    1. Haha yes! I have a feeling that will apply to our kiddos when they're teens, too! They are so picky!

  7. Oh, that Lego set is so precious!! I have a cousin who is obsessed with Legos and this would make such a fun gift. :) Also, I love Larabars and that flavor sounds amazing!

    Hope you're have a great weekend! :)

    Make Life Marvelous

    1. Yes, it would make a great gift! We love Lego so much in this family!

  8. Ella had those sandals last year and LOVED them!!
