Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I can't believe that this is the last weekend in August. I can't say I'm sad to see August go. While I love summer I am so beyond over the heat and just ready for school to start and to begin a new season.

My top favorites from the week!

O N E //  I had the best time visiting with this sweet friend. It was a quick trip. I blinked and she was gone. But there is something for friendship that can go a year without seeing each other and picking right back up as if you never had been apart especially a friend who comes to town and is okay with wearing soft clothes and just hanging out the whole time. It took Jack a little to warm up but once he did he was glued to her! We hope you come back soon Evans!

T W O // I have been trying to figure out a way to organize all of Jacks artwork from school. I have a stack in his closet and then numerous other pieces hanging in my kitchen. Thanks to sweet Jess and her amazing DIY skills I finally have an organization system. I made boxes for both boys and can't wait to fill them up and look back through the years at each folder.

T H R E E // I've got my eye on this sweater It looks so comfy and I think it would be great with leggings! It may be my next purchase!

F O U R // This dessert. It is seriously the BOMB! It's super easy to make especially if you do a few swaps like I did.

What you need:

Graham Cracker Pie Crust (original recipe calls for homemade..I swapped for store bought)
8 oz Cream Cheese
1 cup Peanut Butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tub cool whip (original recipe calls for homemade..I swapped)

 Beat the cream cheese, pb, powdered sugar and vanilla in a bowl

 Fold in the cool whip, or gently beat it in.

 Add chocolate chips and place in pie pan. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours.

Seriously it came together quick and was so delicious. It will be my go to from now on!

Jack and I are headed to defy gravity today with some friends for a little last fun before summer ends. I'm also going to dinner with some girlfriends tonight. Other than that we don't have much planned for the weekend.

Have a great weekend friends!

  1. Time with a good friend is always too short. Glad you had a great time. YAy for the boy's organization bin. Looks great! Have a blast today. :)

  2. That pie looks so good. I can't wait to make it for our tailgate next weekend. Yay for friends coming into town. Always so nice to see and catch up with them. Have a great weekend!

  3. This is so crazy, but I know your friend, Evans! I thought that was her in the picture and then I read your paragraph where you mentioned her name. We both went to Alabama and I worked with her at one time in college at the rec center! I remember her being so nice and funny!
