Well hello there! I’m finally back with a Friday favorites. You guys, life is so busy right now and I miss blogging regularly. I have really been diving into my Etsy shop lately and zoning in on growing that. It’s always been a great avenue of income for me and it’s the easiest to grow at this time in my life.
I have been working on shirts for quite a while now and I’m finally opening another shop for my shirts and mugs…it will be called Joyful Art Design Shop (just an add on to my current printables shop). I cannot wait to do that as I love graphic tees. If you are a blogger, YouTuber, or social influencer and want to work together at all, please message me on Instagram or through here!
As I mentioned above, life has been crazy for so many reasons, so I am really looking forward to the summer where I will be driving MUCH less and we can finally work around Brielle’s schedule (if she even has one these days…poor girl hasn’t had 2 days the same since she was born). I’ve gotta get my summer game into gear though because these boys will drive me nuts if I don’t have things planned or some structure around here. Anyone else? If you have any tips, please share.
I’m linking up today for Friday favorites…
Here are a few of my favorites lately:
RYAN’S BIRTHDAY: We celebrated Ryan’s birthday last weekend. Friday, my parents took us out to dinner at Fogo de Chao. The cheese bread is my absolute favorite food in the world. If I was on a deserted island and could only have one food item, I would choose these. Saturday, we went to a movie and dinner, just the 2 of us! And Sunday, we celebrated at his parents house as well as Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day was also such a great day. I was spoiled all day long. We went to church, then we had lunch at my in laws and then I got to have dinner with my sister, sister in law, and mom at Mi Cocina. I felt like I needed a detox after the weekend but it was fun.
NEW INVITES: I made these two invites for a friend and I’m loving them. I also have the “Cultivate Kindness” printable in my shop also and it’s new.
MILESTONES: Brielle just started feeding herself real solid food a couple of days ago. I don’t know what it is about watching her grab the food and eat it, but I could watch her all day! And high five for feeding herself! Things get a tad easier! Speaking of milestons, I have a post written for her with her 6 month update, but I can’t seem to get the pics to put into that post. I think I figured out a work-around, so hopefully I can have that up soon.
ICED COFFEE: I think I’ve shared this on my You Tube channel, but this is one of my favorite ways to drink iced coffee at home. Trader Joe’s has such a good cold brew coffee (well, I just like this canned one).
NEW DECOR: Holy cow, I am obsessed with our dining room/entry way makeover. Such a difference. I’ve been waiting on our dryer to be hauled away (it was in entry way)…we got new washer/dryer (such a dramatic experience) and it was sitting there until installers came. Now I can take some pictures (I’ll also be doing a video).
I’m going to keep it at 5 things today, but I hope you guys have a great weekend! Make sure to follow me on my social accounts below because I’ll having a big giveaway on my business account soon. I’m also sharing ways I save money on my You Tube channel next week so make sure your subscribed. Thanks to you guys who have subscribed…I’d love to get 1,000 by the end of the year!
