Friday is upon us, my friends! Longest week ever? Yes. I hateeee the week after a holiday. I’m sure some aresitting there like, uhh Morgan, you’re a stay at home mom, what does the weekend matter to you? (truth – weekends do not exist.) But the reality is that Saturday nights and Sundays I have an extra set of hands around which definitely makes the weekend feel like a ‘break’.
So what are you doing this weekend? I’m hoping we stay close to home and get some house projects D.O.N.E done. We’ve lived here for 2 years and I can probably count the projects we’ve finished on one hand. Oops. 2 babies in 2 years will do that to ya! Anyway, it’s time for Friday Favorites! This week I’m linking with Katie, Heather, Andrea, and Angela!
This picture of Ryan and Owen kills me. It totally looks like Ryan is taking a selfie and doing a duck face. Or I’m really, really tired and everything is funny to me. Either way.
It’s been pretty warm here the past few days and a few times I’ve plopped Owen in my lap and sat in front of the fan. He’s clearly a fan.

Favorite Drink: Watermelon Fizz. I think I should do a watermelon recipe on my favorites each week for forever, because it’s just my favorite. I like that this drink is virgin (though watermelon liqueur in this? Yaasss.) but I’d be interested in trying it with watermelon seltzer rather than ginger ale.. hmmm
Favorite SHUT UP: Margherita Pizza Waffles. HOW AWESOME ARE THESE!!!?? No, really. Waffle pizzas.
Favorite House: How to Decorate a Wood Pallet Wall. This is such a fun way to do the classic name/kid photo combo. The street signs pictures her husband took is SUCH a great idea!
Favorite Party: Summer Olympics Themed Party for Kids. I can’t wait until the boys are older and I can do a million and seven fun themed parties for them – I’m loving this Summer Olympics themes one! (how cute are those torch cupcakes?) PS Did anyone else not even realize they were coming up…?
Favorite DIY: DIY Water Spray Table. Genius! Totally begging Alex to make one of these for Ryan. He has a water table at my dad’s and is so in love!
Favorite Dinner: Orzo with Italian Sausage and Roasted Red Peppers. Finding a dinner that both Alex and I would enjoy can be difficult, but this totally fits the bill! Filing for when my house isn’t a sweat lodge 😉
