Happy Friday! This has been a great week at home with my little guy. The last couple of weeks had been tough because I think some of his molars are starting to come in. His appetite is back and he is as happy as a clam! I also discovered Outer Banks on Netflix and I can’t stop watching! Beginning this week, I am going to switch my Friday Faves post to every other week, so I can focus on writing other posts. You guys have loved the Friday Faves series and I love doing it, but I want to make sure that I can get other content out there for you!
Outdoor Solar Lights: Last year, I ordered solar uplighting for the front of our house, but I accidentally ordered the wrong color and it was too bright. I finally ordered the right color this time around and I could not be happier with how they look at night! These warm white solar lights are the BEST. They charge throughout the day and emit such a great amount of light at night that it looks like professional lighting. They come in a four pack. We used two sets, so eight lights in total. Just be sure to order the warm white, not bright white, otherwise your house will have a blue hue!
I also just purchased these solar walkway lights. They are low enough that my husband can mow right over them! We have been using them for a few weeks now and they look awesome at night. They light up the walkway just enough that you can see where you’re going, but not so bright that they take away from the other uplighting.
Oxo POP Set: I finally caved and bought an OXO Pop storage set a couple of months ago and I don’t know why I waited so long! I love that you can put different attachments like a measuring cup or brown sugar saver under the top of the lid, too. The OXO set helps my pantry stay organized and my baking items stay fresh. Check out my banana bread post to see the set up close! You can customize the labels, too!
Dryer Balls: I am trying to lessen our environmental impact as well as make smarter choices when it comes to the chemicals we use in our house and one of the first things I thought I would try are these dryer balls. They are made of 100% wool and you use them in place of dryer sheets. You throw all 6 into the dryer with your clothes and they help cut down on drying time as well as offer an all natural way to reduce static as opposed to using fabric softener or dryer sheets!
Sunglasses: These are my fave affordable aviator style sunglasses I wear when I take the pups for a walk or am outside playing the yard. I still wear my real Ray-bans all the time, but I like to wear these when I still want to wear an aviator style lens, but I’m not going to stress out if Greyson breaks them (again).
Portable Charger: I bought my husband and my father in law a portable phone charger for Father’s Day seeing as both of their phones are always dead or near dead. Like father like son, right? Now that I see how awesome it is thought, I have definitely stolen it from my husband. I like that I can charge my phone while I am outside or on the go and I don’t need to worry about being without my phone. We live outside during the summer, so it’s great to have my phone on me now at all times in case I need it!
