Friday Favorites and Happenings

*This post contains affiliate links.

It's Friday...and it's Easter weekend. That means today is Good Friday. I can't believe how fast this month has flown by. I feel like March just started, but we already celebrated my sisters bridal shower, my MIL's birthday, Rory's 40th birthday, Rory's birthday party and now we are heading into April and Easter.

I am hoping this weekend is a good one.

Onto Friday Favorites and Happenings.

ONE. I know I said on Wednesday that I wasn't buying much, but I am really wanting a new bathing suit for Mexico. I found the cutest Ted Baker bikini, but they don't have my size in the bottoms. I am thinking about getting the top and pairing it with plain black bottoms that I already have. But I am also contemplating a bathing suit by Isabella Rose. I so want them both, but that won't happen.

What I love about the Ted Baker top is the clasp in the back. It allows you to tighten the top whereas I don't think the Isabella one has that. But I can get the whole bathing suit from Isabella Rose since it comes in my size for the top and bottom. Plus it is floral and just so cute. What do you think?

TWO. Another thing I have been wanting is new sandals. I just went through my shoes and I do have a good amount of sandals, but I feel like I go through them quickly. I found the cutest black sandals and I feel like I can never have enough black sandals. Plus these are only $25.

THREE. Since we are having dinner at my parents house for Easter, my mom is making the main dish along with some sides, but asked if we wanted to bring something. I am always going back on forth on things to bring, but I found the perfect side. I am thinking of making a different take on green bean casserole. It is way lighter, no creams or cream of mushroom soup mixes. It is blistered green beans with a brown butter sage bread crumb. Doesn't this look so good?

FOUR. Hanna Andersson is offering 30 to 40% off of everything through Monday. I LOVE Hanna Andersson stuff for my girls. I get their swimsuits, pjs and dresses there. I am going to hit the sale up this morning and buy these things plus more.

FIVE. I found the most perfect skirt for Spring. It would be perfect for my sister's bachelorette weekend, her rehearsal dinner and just so much fun. I love it and seriously need to figure out a way to justify this skirt. How cute is this?
