I hope you had the best 4th of July yesterday. I know we did. We are sitting at home, relaxing and enjoying the extra day off. I hope you are able to hang out at home and relax as well.

Onto Friday Favorites and Happenings.

ONE. So in a week-ish, I am finally going to take the girls to their first movie in a theater. I was going to wait for Frozen 2, but then I figured why wait? The girls LOVE the Toy Story movies and since number 4 came out, I wanted to take them now. And in honor of the movie, I picked up the cutest shirts from Target (they were recommended by another friend). Size up. I got the girls a medium each and they usually wear a XS.

TWO. Another Target find is this dress. I got it since it is lined, can be worn to work and is perfect for the Summer. Plus it is soooo comfy. I got it in a small since the reviews said it can look like a potato sack if it is on the larger side. This would have been perfect for the 4th of July.

THREE. Well the J Crew sale is still going and I scooped up this dress which is perfect for work, Summer and date night. I got it for $27 with the code SPARKLE. It is normally $98. I got a size 4 based on the reviews. In skirts, pants and shorts, I wear a small or a 2 or 4, but in tops, especially work tops, I will get a 6.

FOUR. I know I have talked about this company before, but I have never ordered from it. I always wait for the sales and then I miss out on my sizing. That is my fault, but I finally scored a Pajama Dress. These dresses are made from the softest, comfiest material ever. I wanted their pant/shirt combo, but never could get a size small. Well they just launched their Summer color line and I got free shipping and another coupon and scooped up this blue dress. You can wear them out in public, as lounge wear at home or to bed. Plus this makes the cutest hospital gown. I wish I would have had one of these when I delivered the girls. No, this isn't sponsored or even an affiliate link. I just wanted to share it with you. And I am going to do a try on session with everything I have bought lately, so you can all see. And I can get out of my comfort zone. Ha.

FIVE. Funnies for the week.
This applies to dogs and kids.

Yep, this hurts way more than it should. And I have broke my toes this way more times than I should have.

I am linking up with AprilA Little Bit of EverythingMeet @ the Barre and Becky.

Have a great weekend!


  1. I absolutely LOVE that Target dress! It's probably a good thing I can't fit into most "normal" clothes because there is so much goodness out right now, I'd be broke, ha! Let me know what you think of Toy Story when you go. :) We're thinking of taking the girls tomorrow!

  2. I love that J Crew dress! I've been resisting buying more things from the sale!

  3. We used to have a little pool for our dogs - they loved it!!!
    I bet the girls are going to love going to the theater. All the big seats & popcorn & candy - they'll think its the best thing!
    I want a Toy Story shirt like that in my size!

  4. Toy Story 4 was a heartbreaker... bring loads of tissues! It's super funny, too, though.

  5. LOL @ Baby Shark concert! We were thinking about taking Zoe to see Secret Life of Pets 2 in theater for her first movie. Definetly thinking about Frozen 2 if she does well for pets! I have seen so many kiddos in that Toy Story shirt, so cute!

  6. Hope the kids enjoy Toy story! These tees are too cute! So is the striped dress, great for summer! :)

    Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend :) It's been a quiet one for us, with the rain!

  9. The girls must be so excited to go to the movies for the first time ever! I've been hearing good things about Toy Story 4.. hope they have a great time.
