Happy Friday!  We spent another week in the midwest managing through snow and cold weather. Hurry up spring! As usual, I am sharing my favorites of the week and I am linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea for Friday Favorites.

New Letterboard

My favorite find of the week was this letterboard on clearance at Target for $10! These boards are all over Instagram and I’ve always thought there were so cute and catchy! I shared my first board display over on Instagram and Facebook on Monday. It’s hard to have the same excitement for Monday that we do with Friday!

Fun Ideas for Your Letterboard

Another Letter board version here!

Between, my favorite Lightbox ,this Letterboard and my kitchen chalkboard,  our house is never a shortage for words!! I’ll admit that the Letterbox takes a little more creativity and time than my Lightbox requires! Ha ha!

Ideas for Your Letterboard

I updated my Letterboard with of the many awesome quotes from 365 Days of Wonder! This is a companion book to Wonder that is packed with over 365 inspirational messages! When my daughter took out this book out from the library, I found myself writing down so many of the quotes.

Day in the Life

This week I decided on a whim to write A Day in the Life post. It was total coincidence that it has been exactly six months since I published my first Day in the Life post!

While the day I shared was not particularly eventful, it was a pretty accurate picture of one of our more typical days.

Day in the Life of a Stay at Home Mom

I always love reading these day in the life posts from other bloggers. I’m planning to write another one of these posts in the summer which is a season when our days are always unpredictable and different!

Latest Trendsend Order

Last week I received some happy mail in the form of my latest Trendsend subscription box! On Monday, I shared all the details on what I received in the box and what I decided to keep. This subscription box is perfect for me because I rarely get out to the stores to do my own clothing shopping! It is always a fun surprise to see what’s inside my order.

Based on comments on this post, I made the right decisions on what I kept and returned. Thanks for your feedback:)

Pinterest Updates

Has anyone else been a Pinterest fan for years but hasn’t been loving what shows up in their feed lately?? I was so excited to see changes that were made to Pinterest this week! Perhaps you’ve come to realize that your Pinterest feed is no longer what your friends have pinned but instead what Pinterest thinks you will like! This has resulted in my feed being filled with uninspiring posts!

But Pinterest must have wised up because now, as of this week, you have the option to see what your friends are actually pinning. Yippee! Just a little bit of news I wanted to share with you!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Finally, several months ago I shared an Etsy shop favorite, Door Before, which sells these adorable personalized mini home prints. Just this week, I found a frame and a permanent place for my sign to reside.

House Print | Mug Rack | Cake Stands |

These little prints would make adorable gifts for Mother’s Day or wedding anniversaries! You can specify if you want black and white or a little color in your print. I love all the little details that were included in our print especially our picket fence and our address numbers. It is such a sweet keepsake to have!

That about wraps up some of my favorites from this week! My husband and I have plans to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary (a little early!).

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

    Haven’t heard of the Transcend box. I will have to check it out. I did Stitch Fix for a while but I think I finally broke up with them for Good this fall.

    Have a Good weekend!

    Oooh I haven’t heard of Trasnscend! Happy anniversary! I want to get a little print of my house. That’s on my life of things to do when I am done with my no spend time. Enjoy your weekend!

      Shannon-Sorry if I was confusing…now you SHOULD be able to see your friends’ pins!

  6. Dara on April 22, 2018 at 10:18 am

    I kind of need to figure out how to take photos for a day in the life post. I haven’t done that yet! Great find on the letter board!

    • Jaclyn on April 22, 2018 at 9:44 pm

      Dara-It’s so fun (although a bit of work) to keep track of your day in pictures and words. But I totally recommend trying it once!!
