So I am posting again, even though I wasn't sure who was reading or wanted some normalcy in their lives. I am writing about some of my favorites lately, and it feels like I haven't written about things that I am liking or loving in quite some time. I took most of last week off of blogging as I had a cold the week before and I didn't get many posts done. But hopefully this post brings you a little joy, a laugh or a break from all the craziness going on.

Onto Friday Favorites and Happenings.

ONE. Last week I was traveling for work and I bought myself a few things. I also got the girls some items for Mexico and a birthday gift for Rory whose birthday is this weekend!!! But while I was at the Kendra Scott store, I bought myself a new necklace. I don't have a store here, so when I see one, I usually stop in. I sooo wanted to make myself a piece of jewelry, but then I saw this necklace and I just bought it. I love simple necklaces. I also noticed how many pieces of Kendra Scott jewelry I really do have. A ton. And some of the same ones just in different colors.

TWO. I also shopped at a store called South Moon Under. I had never heard of it before, but it was very cute. I wanted about five shirts, but settled on one. I also wanted a bathing suit, but I HATE trying on bathing suits in stores, so I just didn't even go for it. This shirt will be on repeat this Spring and Summer.

THREE. I am sure you have seen the tie dye trend everything and I am all for it. I wanted a tie dye sweatshirt from the South Moon store, but I didn't want to pay $68 for it when winter is almost over (fingers crossed). So I found one at Target and it lives up to the one I saw in the South Moon store.

FOUR. Even though we are supposed to be social distancing, I still went out to brunch last weekend with my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday. We were one of two tables at the whole restaurant, so we definitely were not in any crowds. It was a great time celebrating one of my best friends who I haven't seen in months. It was so nice to catch up with her and other friends of ours.

FIVE. Weekly funnies. Some of you may have seen some of these since I posted them on my IG stories earlier this week.



I am linking up with A Little Bit of Everything and Becky.

Have a great weekend!

    1. Ya it has been tough being quarantined, but at least we are all safe and healthy right now. I adore that necklace so much but haven't gotten to wear it much since we are stuck inside.

  4. I bought myself a tie dye shirt a few months ago from a local boutique and basically wear it every weekend with my leggings. Love! Glad you had one last outing last weekend. I haven't been away from my house since last Friday afternoon. It has been a long week to say the least!
