I can't believe August is already over. That means that Summer is winding down. While I am grateful for some cooler days, I just love beach days even more. I am hoping we can still get a few beach days in Tahoe during September and possibly October. Fingers crossed. Anyways, we have a long weekend and I am looking forward to it. We have our first home football game tonight and then camping.

Onto Friday Favorites and Happenings.

ONE. When we were recently at Scheels, I was browsing boots and I came across the cutest pair for Fall/Winter. I didn't buy them, but they have been on my mind ever since. How cute are these? I am hoping a sale comes around that I can get at least a little money off of these.

TWO. This week, American Eagle had a sale going on and you all know how much I love their jeans, so I scooped up another pair (for $23) and a super soft long sleeve tee (for $17). And now they have another sale going on. You can get 25% - 60% off right now.

I have bought many jeans. Expensive jeans to cheap jeans and for some reason, these jeans are just the best. I have had them for over a year now and I LOVE them. They are in amazing condition and they are always on sale.

THREE. Last weekend we went to our favorite Summer place...Lake Tahoe. If you read my blog last week then you saw that we were not able to go to Sand Harbor for the day because the parking lot was full by 9 am. Well this time, we got there at 8:30, got right in and got a prime beach spot. We probably could have come a bit later, but we wanted to make sure we got in.

It was a beautiful day. It was in the 80s and we spent over 5 glorious hours there. And the girls didn't get fussy when we were going to leave. Usually we leave too late and they are grumpy and in need of a nap. Well they weren't grumpy and promptly fell asleep once we were driving home.

Seriously, if you have never been to Lake Tahoe, you need to add it to your bucket list. It is the best lake in America.

This is a local brewery here in Nevada and this beer is amazing!

FOUR. The girls started dance class again and I snapped this cute photo. It is hard to see my girls since they are the furthest from me. But look at how cute they are!

FIVE. Funnies for the week.

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

Have a great weekend!


  1. Yeah, that last meme is so me last Saturday, I mentioned it in my post today. I’m going to miss beach days.

    1. Hahaha. That is pretty funny. I will have to check your post out. Beach days are the best!

  2. Your funnies are hilarious!!! Zoe is starting dance next week and she is beyond excited!!!! Do you have any recommendations on tights? I have everything else but need to get those. I haven’t been in American eagle in a long time, maybe need to get in there. Have a great weekend!

    1. Oh I bet she is super excited. We buy them locally, but I have bought a few pairs from Target that don't last. Here are the ones that I buy on amazon ( I hadn't been in a long time until last year when my coworker recommended the jeans. Now I buy all the jeans there. Have a great weekend as well!

  3. Those funnies!! The lemon/lime one made me snort.
    AHH - little girls in pink & ballerina buns - the cutest thing!!!!!

  4. Every time you post photos of Lake Tahoe it just makes me want to go more! And the lemon lime tampons made me LOL!

  5. Omg that tampon meme. Dead. That's the funniest thing I've seen all week! Also, Tahoe is breathtaking!

  6. That shirt from AE looks SO comfy -- I love their stuff, and Aerie's too. I'll have to give their jeans a try post babe. I'm with you: I love fall but I'm such a summer girl. Have a fun long weekend!
