Friday Favs: 7.17

by Andrea Cooley


It’s definitely feeling like summer around here! Most days I take the boys for a walk before Foster’s nap, but there have been a few days this week where the heat index was over 90 before 8 am so we opted to stay inside and build forts instead.

Here are some of my favorite finds from this week:

Target never fails to disappoint when it comes to affordable style for the home. It kind of makes me wish I were going to college or registering for my wedding again! (Style by Emily Henderson)

I usually turn my nose up at fake flower arrangements, but this one has me itching to go to Michael’s and make my own! Has anyone used “quick water” before? (The Lettered Cottage)

Pallet projects are a dime a dozen on Pinterest, but I really love Katie’s arrow! (Bower Power)

Young House Love’s new book, Lovable Livable Home comes out in September, who’s preordering it?

I’m crushing on these simple gold earrings.

We’re going to start potty training on Monday. I’m reading this book and stocking up on lots of treats for Emerson and me! Wish us luck!

My natural inclination is to offer people advice, but sometimes that’s not what they need. I love Emily’s thoughts on learning to listen well. (in courage)

It’s officially summer when the zinnias are in bloom and the tomatoes are getting ripe in the garden. Bunnies have been munching on some of my zinnia plants, but I have high hopes that some of the blooms will survive. Otherwise I’ll have to get some flowers at the farmer’s market!

Here are some of my favorites things from around the web this week:

I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of Emily Freeman’s newest book, It’s Simply Tuesday, and am loving it! I will definitely share more about it when I finish. It doesn’t come out ’til August, but you can preorder it for less than $8! If you haven’t read her other books, Grace for the Good Girl or A Million Little Ways, I highly recommend them too.

Nothing compares to a garden-fresh tomato. It will still be a few weeks before the ones in our garden are ready to eat, but I will definitely be trying this tomato sandwich when they are!

I just ordered my first Chat Book. I can’t wait for it to come! If you take lots of instagram photos, it’s definitely worth checking out. And you can get your first book free with this code: 3JV2TUWK

It’s no secret that I love to read, so of course I loved this post about the most beautiful passages you’ve ever read. It made me want to flip back through some of my all-time favorite books.
