Hi friends! Happy Friday! How are you? I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. It’s been a bit of a wild one over here. I had to get my first mammogram after a potentially concerning spot showed up on my last ultrasound – it was NOT a picnic, but I’m extremely thankful for good results. Aaaand Liv broke her finger! We’re headed to ortho today but I’m hoping she’ll just have to splint it for a little while.
What do you have going on this weekend? We’re headed to a military event and are going to do a family hike in between the festivities. The weather has been a DREAM this week, so we’re taking advantage of it. I hope you have a fun and lovely weekend ahead, too.
(Played hooky on Monday and went to the gem show with madre!)
It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party! Here’s where I share some of my favorite finds from the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your faves, too, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.
Friday Faves 2.2
Second ear piercings! Liv has been wanting to get her second piercing for a while, so we told her she could go for it. We picked up one of her friends to join us (for moral support), and headed to Rowan, the new piercing spot at La Encantada. All of the earrings are hypoallergenic, and all of the piercers are registered nurses. It was very cute and Instgrammable.
Liv asked me if I would go first, so I said yolo and got my second piercings done. (I originally had them done in elementary school but let them close.)
It didn’t hurt at all – I was shocked!!
I can’t believe how much I like having a second piercing. It’s fun to have a lil extra sparkle.
We went as a family to the Wildcats game last night and it was a blast. Liv has an intense dance schedule so we haven’t made it to any games this season. We let her ditch one night (she had a newly broken finger, after all) and cheered our hearts out, ate all the game foods, and enjoyed the evening together.
This label maker. I know, it’s a weird thing to be excited about. Buuuut I got this on Prime Day and LOVE this little thing. It’s been helpful for labeling items in the pantry and also the hangers for dance competition costumes! Check it out here.
Meg’s baby shower!
We got to celebrate this mama and my new baby nephew on the way. We had appetizers at Commoner & Co., played games, ate cake, and watched her open all of the amazing gifts. I can’t believe how much better baby clothes are now!! The fabrics have gotten a major upgrade and are so incredibly soft.
These teacher coasters! I ordered them for the girls’ teachers for teacher appreciation to pair with a Starbucks gift card. LOVE how they tuned out!

Fashion + beauty:
New lip balms! The texture is silky smooth and they give the lightest bit of color. I try to use nontoxic makeup and skincare as much as possible, but lip products are especially important since you essentially *eat* what’s on your lips. Check it out here and you can use CLEANFORALL20 for 20% off your first order. I’m happy to help with any recs, too!
This skirt. It was in my recent RTR Unlimited shipment and I’m thinking about keeping it. Skirts don’t often fit me well – my torso is short and they’re often too tight in the waist – and this fits and matches so many tops and sweaters.
( I wear it with these loafers or these Amazon flats!)
Fitness, health, and good eats:
Barre strength workout with dumbbells.
Simple but delicious air fryer chicken. (Ps I’m in the market to swap out our air fryer for one that doesn’t have the nonstick coating. If you have a stainless steel or glass one you love, please lmk!)
Caramel chocolate truffles. YUM
Happy Friday, friends! What’s something you’re loving this week?
