Friday faves-Planners, S'mores & Starbucks

Friday!   I am so happy to see you again! August on Saturday....not so much!  Don't get me wrong, I am ready for some fall weather (it was 95 here on Wednesday and that is just too hot for me), but I am not ready for summer itself to end.  We have a very busy August planned so I know it is going to speed right by.  Then once September hits, my baby goes to kindergarten (insert tears)!  It's like I blinked and 5 years passed.  :(

But...this is my Friday Favorites post so no more mommy tears!

Favorite #1:  My new planner
I LOVE this Erin Condren planner.  It is way more than I normally would spend on a planner, but  Seriously.   I need a good planner this year now that we will have Nick's kindergarten schedule, Alec's preschool schedule, and all the regular family, doctor, and dentist stuff.   Oh, and did I mention I am coaching Nick's soccer team this year?  Yeah.  So there's all that scheduling stuff I need to remember too.

Favorite #2:  Indoor camping and S'mores
The kids had a blast playing in the tent we set up in the living room and eating some delicious oven baked s'mores.

Favorite #3:  Front yard project!
Pretty much since we moved into this house in 2012 I have wanted my husband to put in nice flower beds and retaining wall out front.  Well, this weekend it's happening (or at least it's getting started).  I can't wait to post pics when it's done!

Favorite #4: This fan

Random, right?   Well I'll tell you, this is the best $19 I have spent in a long time!  If it is abnormally hot at your desk like it is at mine, get this!  It gives off just the right amount of air...not so much that your hair is blowing all over the place, but just enough to give you a refreshing breeze!

Favorite #5:  New Starbucks drinks
I seem to find a new Starbucks favorite every week!  This week it's the Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade AND the Iced Mango Black Tea Lemonade.  Sooooo good!

Enjoy your weekend friends!  Are you doing something exciting or just relaxing?

  1. I love that planner! And I love me some Starbucks so I'll definitely have to try that drink!

  2. Yay for yard projects and flower beds! Can't wait to see pics! And that Starbucks drink looks so delicious and refreshing. It's supposed to get to the 90's today (way out of the norm for the PNW), so I may have to get something like that later.

  3. I had the mango ice tea lemonade at Starbucks and loved it too, I had them cut the sweetener a tad. Also, that planner is cute!

  4. Love the Erin Condren planner! I've been trying so hard to resist! Smores, yum! Happy Friday, Kimberly!:)

  5. S'mores are good inside or outside!
