FRIDAY FAVORITES...Gingham Love Edition

Well it warmed up to 50 degrees, melted all the snow then we got blasted yesterday with more white stuff! But I’ve got so much fun planned the next 4 days including two tiny trips (please roads be safe) to see beloved friends and lots of goodness in between. 
So, let’s hop to it with some Fun Friday Favs!

1. Roses & Meatloaf

Simple Valentine's recap: Mr. Nine and I don’t do a huge production out of Valentine’s Day anymore and don’t even go out. I make my heart shaped meatloaf (here it is below ready togo in the oven), Mr. Nine gave me a plethora of beautifully colored roses. And I was so excited because I had gotten this new white VASE as I wanted kind of an elevated basic base and this one is perfect.

2. Thymes Fragrances
Our home has never smelled so good with Thymes Fragrances! Our home is our haven and I love filling ours with sweet and enticing fragrances to enhance the comfort of home. I am so in love with this brand and recently got some products to refresh for spring. Right now, the scents I am in love with are the Mandarin Coriander, Aqua Coraline and Washed Linen. The Statement Poured Candle in Washed linen burns so smoothly. I put the Aqua Coralline hand soap and hand lotion in our guest bath, and it looks so pretty in there with the wave wall. I can I just say, the Mandarin Coriander Countertop Spray  might be my favorite kitchen spray ever! And I’m already excited about fall to try their Heirlum Pumpkin and Simmered Cider!

3. Gigi's Boutique

I have the most fabulous online boutique for you named Gigi's Boutique! My friend Gigi from Tennessee and her daughter-in-law have the best taste. I’ve been following her now for a while on Instagram and proud to call her friend. Here’s some of her cuteness with this Pink Chambray Top, wipe the vintage wash Jeans and Waffle Knit Top called I’m lucky, lol! GiGi has offered my followers a code for 15% off everything on her website and she has tons of stuff!


4. Gingham
Oh, how I love me some sweet gingham! I think pink gingham especially just signals come on Spring! And both these items are under $25 from Walmart and oh so cute!


5. Misc. Fun
Tuesday ~ Nautical Spring Feels with Chicos


Our baby girl has been home now two weeks and she is absolutely thriving! She keeps us laughing all the time and is the sweetest girl! On Monday's Blog post, I talked about bringing our girl home and just think about all the fun we’re going to have! This week she was full of it including dropping a #2 in the middle of the walk-in shower. Hey, at least, it's easy clean up, lol. I won't share a poop photo, I promise, lol.

Woke up from a nap on her favorite toys


Have a Fun Weekend Friends!
