First July Friday Favorites + Finds

I certainly hope this week has brought you all tremendous joy, success, and accomplishments! My week began wonderfully, but I let myself get really irritated by our home search again. We took a much-needed break but felt ready to get back into it only to discover homes are still be snatched up at lightning speed. Our day will come, though.

I’m really excited for this weekend, and today marks Matt and my 14 year anniversary. It’s hard to believe it’s been so long since we met by chance, but I am thankful daily that we did!

Our first photo taken together on my first cell phone, a good ole flip phone. 😉


I found this longer linen dress (with pockets!) on Amazon, and while a little different, I love it! The flow-y aspect is really nice, and I adore the color.

I wore this beautiful top I purchased off Poshmark with khaki dress pants and my pretty headband from Kaci and Drew’s wedding.


Chambray denim is one of my go-to styles that I’ll always love. I love the pattern on this dress. I’ve shared it before, but it’s definitely a fav.


These memories warm my heart so much!

Mason’s eyes convey, “gimme that food, Mama!”


My mother’s birthday was on July 9th, and she would have been 64. I think this photo of her is just stunning.


Her smile could light up a room!


I paid a visit to Mahalo on Wednesday, and Knoxville is really showing up for them!

My half caf cappuccino was phenomenal.



Thanks to Panera Bread’s rewards program, I received a free beverage coupon that I used to get a decaf latte. It was a great pick-me-up even without the caffeine!

Tofu Taco Tuesday! We used TJ’s Sriracha baked tofu, and I had the genius idea to use this napkin holder for Matt to cook and mold our taco shells. The meal was amazing!



I *finally* restocked our EBTB seasoning and found this salt-free herb blend at TJ’s. It’s awesome!


This was a splurge purchase, but both Matt and I love the flavor. It’s great as is or in overnight oats. I highly recommend giving it a try!

STRANGER THINGS. Oh my gosh this season is intense!! Matt and I have the last episode to watch, and I’m bracing myself. I will likely ball and curl up into the fetal position. I am such a softy now. I don’t want anything to happen to the gang!

I always love to end on an insightful note, & Morgan Harper Nichols always delivers.

Have the best Friday and weekend!

    Ohhh I’m gonna have to get that 21 seasoning salute! I’ve seen the blueberry lavender, but didn’t know how I’d use it- In overnight oats is super ingenious!
