Friday Favorites – mules, easy dinner ideas and more decor!

This post contains affiliate links

Happy Friday friends!  This past weekend my baby turned 2 and we’ve been celebrating all week long! I also made a trip to Hobby Lobby and scored some really cute decor. First, let me take a step back. My sister was on the hunt for some decor for her bedroom so I tagged along with all intentions of window shopping and checking out their Christmas stuff. But I found some things I just couldn’t pass up.  I ended up restyling my built ins in the living room (I’ll share that in another post soon), and added some cute farmhouse decor to my kitchen which I’m sharing with you all today.

It’s been awhile since I did a “Friday Favorites” post so I thought I’d share some of the things I’m loving this week.

Mules-

mules shoes

I have never been a shoe fanatic. My super wide, flat 6 1/2s makes me dread shoe shopping. Until I discovered mules that is. They make you look instantly chic and are super comfy. And I think they’re the perfect shoe for the gal on the go or busy moms. Here are some of my favorite pairs (click images to bring you to the site!)

Quick, easy dinners from Trader Joe’s –

Trader Joes frozen meals

So about once a week after I drop off the dude at school I like to hit up TJ’s. I don’t do all of my grocery shopping there but I love them for their frozen meals. They’re great for after working a 12 hour shift or sometimes if I just don’t feel like making dinner but I want to make a wholesome meal.  Our favorites are the mandarin chicken which I serve over some broccoli and brown rice. Or you can serve it with their frozen vegetable rice but sometimes I just eat that as is, it’s so good. And we also love their cheesy spaghetti squash casserole, and butternut squash mac and cheese!

Netflix documentary – The Staircase

Ok so if you don’t know by now, I love true crime documentaries.  I got hooked when I was home on maternity leave and that was all that was on TV.  I just started The Staircase on Netflix. It’s about a woman who was found at the bottom of the staircase in her house and it’s a matter of did her husband kill her or was it an accident? So good. My other favorite for anyone that has HBO is The Jinx. I watched that one in one day.

 

Blanket Scarves – 

bean boots

I snagged this one this week. It’s so big and I love to wear it as a scarf or shawl.  Plus I think this flannel print is perfect for the fall and winter months.

Decorative trays – 

farmhouse decor

I was looking to add a touch of farmhouse to my kitchen. I found this cute Thyme sign at Hobby Lobby. To give it a little height I picked up this tray, added a boxwood for some greenery, and then added some other stuff I had around the house. I love the way that a tray can pull together some little knick knacks and make it look a little more elegant. Plus you can change out some of the little elements for different seasons.

I like this galvanized tray and it comes with the greenery

I love this rustic wood one from Amazon
Hope you all have a great weekend! I would love to know some things you’re crushing on this week.

Friday favorites – Hunter boots at Target, Non-Candy Easter basket ideas and more

Happy Friday!!!! Who’s ready for the weekend? I know I am! So much happened this week. Anyone else still recovering from daylight savings?  My little dude started walking (yayyy!!!) and chasing him has become my new cardio so that’s a plus. Also we got pounded with what felt like 10 feet of snow, well not really, but I’m so ready for spring weather! Speaking of spring, I thought I’d do another Friday Favorites post and this one’s got spring in mind. I’m sharing ways to score a pair of Hunter boots from Target, a delish chocolate Guinness milkshake for St Patrick’s Day, some of my favorite non-candy Easter basket ideas and more!

So lets get to it with my Friday Favorites:
(Disclaimer-this post contains sponsored links)

1.) Hunter boots at Target –  If you didn’t already hear, Hunter boots are coming to Target! Yes that’s right, I’ll say it again, Hunter boots are coming to Target.  I have been dying to get a pair of Hunter boots but I could never justify the price. Well, now I can.

Hunter boots at Target

On April 14th, just in time for spring, Target will be releasing the brand Hunter for Target.  Hunter for Target will feature their famous boots as well as other apparel for the whole family at affordable prices.  The original wellies usually retail for $150 but you can grab them at Target for about $30! (Have I told you how much I love Target?) 

Buuuttt, there is a but. This is a limited collection lasting from April 14-June 14 while supplies last. And we all know how popular these rain boots are.

So how can you score yourself a pair of Hunter boots from Target? Girl, I got you.

  • First, if you’re not a Target Red Card holder, get yourself one.  Red Card holders get early online access to the new brand starting on April 7th.  This is my recommendation. Not a Red Card holder? Apply here!
  • Secondly, run, don’t walk. Seriously. Scope out the closest Target store near you and make sure they’re going to be getting the brand and then get your booty in line.

2.) Chocolate Guinness Milkshake – Alright friends, Irish or not, St Patrick’s Day is tomorrow and I got the perfect drink for you! My Chocolate Guinness Milkshake is the perfect blend of chocolately stouty goodness.  Get the recipe

3.) Non-candy Easter basket ideas – No week is complete without a trip to Target and this week in the dollar bin I scored some cute stuff for my little one’s Easter basket. With Easter less than 3 weeks away, I shared some of my favorite Non-candy Easter basket ideas on the blog.  Check them out here

4.) One Hope Wine – So I was recently gifted a bottle of this California Brut Sparkling Wine by One Hope Wine and I am in love! Not only is it so refreshing, I love how festive the bottle is, it’s perfect for bridal showers, bachelorette parties, or any occasion. And when you purchase a bottle, proceeds go to feed children in need through Why Hunger. Since I love it so much and I am all for a good cause use my promo code HEARTBEAT15 and get 15% off your order now

5) Lara baseball tee in mint by Goodrow Clothing –  Ok so this spring I am all about the florals and this shirt has quickly become my favorite. It’s super soft, stretchy, and how gorgeous are these colors? Get one for yoself!

Friday favorites – Hearth & Hand farmhouse wreath, best bronzer and more

Happy FRI-YAYYYY! I can’t believe another week gone by and its already the last weekend of January! We are officially in the coldest months of winter and it makes me want to just do all things cozy a la curl up with a big blanket, drink a warm beverage and watch crime documentaries all day. 

Yesterday my sister and I went on a little shopping outing to some of our favorite places, Hobby Lobby and Ulta – seriously we were like kids in a candy shop. And while I was strolling the aisles testing out all the different cosmetics and lathering myself with various lotions, a thought hit me – why not start a “Friday Favorites” post where every few weeks I share some of my favorite things that I am crushing on at the moment.  So without further adieu lets get to it…

Favorite New Jam

“Filthy” by Justin Timberlake – This song just makes me want to dance and I literally can not wait for the Superbowl Halftime Show. And I won’t object at all if there happens to be an NSYNC/Britney Spears reunion circa 2001.
