Making Memories

Friday Favorites

Wow!  What a week this has been!  For some reason this week has been one of the busiest we’ve had in a while.  I honestly feel like what I think running a marathon would feel like this week (and I’ll probably never really know), and I’m hoping to be able to relax this weekend.  Here’s a look into our week, plus a few of my new favorites.


We are finally in the homestretch with our bathroom remodel.  Our new carpet was finally installed!!!  We’ve never had new carpet before and let me just say, walking on new carpet is amazing!  However, the process leading up to new carpet is not so fun.  We had to move everything out of our closet and all of the little things out of our bedroom.  When your husband happens to be travelling the week of new carpet installation, it really stinks!  But on a positive note, he will be home to help me move everything back into its place.

The last time our closet was this empty was when we moved in five years ago.

Everything stacked up in our bathroom.

A few weeks ago I missed the amazing Bath & Body Works online only candle sale.  However, last weekend the candles were buy one get one free and I had a 20% off coupon, so that made each candle $9!!  So that was a huge savings.

I decided to buy four new fragrances that I have never tried before.

I have seen several girls post about the face masks they have found and tried from Wal-Mart.  So this week I purchased a few.  I tried the detoxify one and I really didn’t like it.  I plan to try another one this weekend too.  On a sidenote, I took a picture of myself with the mask on because I looked so scary!  I sent the picture to my husband and it scared him to death.  LOL!!

I decided that I needed some new shoes for summer and, of course, I refuse to buy anything unless it’s on sale.  Fortunately, Payless Shoes was having a buy one get one 1/2 half sale.  Payless has really stepped it up in their selection of shoes lately.  I can’t wait for my new shoes to arrive today!!

Here are few random pictures from our week…

When I arrived to softball practice I captured this picture.  These girls have such a great relationship.  We are so fortunate to have a good group of school friends and even better we love their families.

After softball practice the girls and I had a Chick Fil A date night.

The girls love riding their scooters to school.  I think they have done this everyday this week.  #lovethisbeautifulweather

  1. What a busy week! Glad you made it through, and there is nothing better than brand new carpet, haha!! We are also in the home stretches of our basement being finished, can’t wait!!

    Have a (relaxing) wonderful weekend!

  2. Yay for new carpet! I really love all of the shoes you bought! I didn’t grow up in town but my best friend from elementary school lived right by our middle school so everyday my mom would drop me off there & we would wait for 2 of our other friends who lived near her to show up & then we would all walk and/or scooter to school together. Have a great weekend!

  3. I have a confession to make, now that my boys are all above 16, they don’t ride their scooters anymore, so I was cleaning out the garage and pulled one down and started riding it around our cul-de-sac LOL. That must’ve been a sight. A friend of mine got me one of those masks and I can’t wait to try this weekend. Happy beautiful Weekend!
