Friday Favorites!

It seems like Friday comes so much faster during the summer!  Once again, I'm linking up with ErikaNarci and Andrea to share my Friday Favorites.


This book...

When I heard that Taylor Jenkins Reid had a new book out, I could not get my hands on it fast enough.  I have blogged about the author A LOT because I love everything she writes.  I declared one of her books my favorite book of 2017 in my April Books and Beans post!  I just started reading her latest, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo,  and look forward to telling you all about it when I'm done.

If you know me in real life, you are probably surprised that this ended up in my Friday Favorites. :)  I had the opportunity to review this fragrance collection with my husband on his podcast this week and it was such a great time!  I went into it with low expectations, but the product and packaging really impressed me.  I especially likes the "Rey" and "Light" scents.  I also liked podcasting...a lot!  Here I am in the Coffee With Kenobi Studios...



Lord help me.  We joined a gym this week and I have gone three times.  Dan and I had a personal training session on Wednesday, and as of the writing of this blog, my muscles are still screaming at me.  I am hurting in places I forgot I had.  I made this a favorite because I know that pain means change and it's all part of my mission to take better care of myself and my health.  If I can walk tomorrow, I plan to return for some cardio. :)  Pray for me.


Kids in the Kitchen

One of the things I am really enjoying with my youngest this summer is cooking and baking.  He loves to grab a chair to stand on and work with me in the kitchen.  This book has the perfect recipes to do with kids and it's a great buy on Amazon right now.  We have made several of the recipes and we are excited to make the Red, White and Blueberry Pie that Shay made on the Today Show this week just in time for the 4th of July!



My name is Deanna and I love to organize.  I have a secret wish to own my own organizing business.  I really enjoy organizing pantries and closets.  I know that most people do not share this "Friday Favorite"!  Take me to The Container Store and I am one happy girl!  I have donated my time on a few organizing projects for friends and family and would love to get a few more projects completed.  Let me know if you'd like to hire me to organize something for you! :)

I hope you all have some fun pre-4th of July plans this weekend.  Enjoy the time with your people!


  1. I have never heard of that author, but that book is on my summer reading list.

    1. I absolutely love her books! Make sure to put "One True Loves" on your list as well; it's my favorite!
