Friday Favorites



My sweet Mama is in town from California, so it's an extra happy Friday around here! First stop after the airport: Jeni's Ice Creams of course!



Followed by homemaking the Darkest Chocolate flavor from the Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Homecookbook. Find the recipe here. Spoiler alert: it's amaze.


I ordered these pint containers since we've been on our homemade ice cream kick, and they work perfectly for storing the ice cream! (Each recipe fills about two pint containers.)




Hello to my very first romper! It had to be documented. After months of being anti-romper (you know, the whole getting undressed in public restrooms thing), this one won me over. I'm in love. So much that I wore it out to date night, then three days later out to a Junior League event (I figured I wouldn't be seeing any of the same people, haha). 



For date night, Max and I took on the "omakase" menu at Yoshi Sushi (Japanese translation: I'll leave it up to you - basically chef's choice). It was seriously so much fun! Each of the fourteen courses was a surprise and was explained in detail. Favorites included the tuna belly nigiri and the smoked truffled yellowtail bowl (complete with the cloche that released the smoke at the table). But best of all was face time with husby of course! With work travel and a four-year-old running around, it was so nice to be able to concentrate on just each other!



My Junior League event was at a speak easy inside a local brewery, and it included a fundraiser featuring Kendra Scott (I mean, it had my name written all over it). I had been eyeing these statement earrings since they were released this summer, and it was the perfect opportunity to snag them! You know, supporting Junior League and all ;) 



It's a wrap on t-ball for the summer season! 


Parker had such a fun time playing on the Marlins team, and was thrilled to have Dada out on the field assisting coaching for all the games. 


And he adored batting! Though he says he is ready for real baseball, and does not want to hit off the tee anymore, haha. 


Little Man was so lucky to have Nana and Papa in town from Dallas and cheering him on for his last game!


Our little slugger!

Happy Friday!




Ten on Tuesday




Our weekend kicked off early since Friday was an "Off Friday" for Max (meaning he doesn't go into the office, but often still has work duties). I jumped at the opportunity to go to a Pure Barre class since I don't get to go as much in the summer with Parker being out of school. I'm so happy I went because everyone in the 9:30AM class was surprised with Kendra Scott jewelry. Not. Kidding. We walked out post-class to dozens of tiny ribboned boxes, just like in my dreams :) Each box had something different, and it was so much fun seeing what everyone got. All the thank yous to the new Kendra Scott store (at Bridge Street Town Centre) and Pure Barre Huntsville!


Saturday morning we were out bright and early on the (very wet) t-ball field! Parker was so excited to field a ball during the game and throw it to first base. Max did batting line-up duty for this game, and this is how I found my boys when Parker was on deck. Too. Cute.


Our little slugger had some awesome hits. His face says it all - he loves the game!






Saturday mid-day we headed up north to stay with our Nashville friends. They took us out to see Nashville's minor league baseball team, The Sounds. Being a numbers guy, Parker was obsessed with all the stats from the game. He had the time of his life - I think baseball is a favorite. 



I was convinced the guy in front of us (in the blue shirt) was a famous actor and was this close to saying something, but everyone convinced me he was just a lookalike. Perhaps if I had had another vodka creamsicle slushie, haha. 




Sunday we got to enjoy this heaven, also known as Tennessee. 



Our sweet friends took us to Arrington Vineyards, southeast of Nashville. A picnic flight menu - have you ever heard of anything cuter? 


The three amigos had a blast listening to the live music and running around. The best way to Sunday!



We followed up Monday night with more live music at Big Spring Park.


These two and their twinning! It gets me every time!


My favorite way to Monday!





Parker will be rocking these new rainbows soon! The last time he wanted yellow rainbows, it was already fall and I couldn't find a pair of yellow rainbows in his size to save my life. This year, I tried to make a jump on it and ordered them now (though I know he can totally don them in our summer storms).


Last week, I blogged about the secret to Surviving our Summer Bucket List. Visit back for discounts on Viva and Clorox, plus a bundle package from Walmart. 



We are finally getting some tomatoes ripening in the garden! Everything is very slow going this year (friends and farmers in the area seem to be echoing the same thing). Apparently is just hasn't been hot enough for the tomatoes, but I'm guessing that will change soon. Yesterday we were able to pick just a couple golden yellow cherry tomatoes and one red one (plus lots of mint and basil). Keep growing, garden!



The earrings I blogged about last week are now on sale with free shipping. Click here and use the code HEATWAVE.


Um, is anyone else's child waking up earlier and earlier as the summer goes on? Coupled with no napping, and this Mama needs a daily coffee the size of her head. Wishing all the mamas all the caffeine today :)
