Friday Faves & Finds (4.20.18)


week in reviewWe made it to another Friday! This weekend my parents are in town babysitting so my husband and I can go to a fancy lunch and wine pairing at Arista Winery with our friends. I can’t remember the last time we had a whole day away from the kids, so we’re both looking forward to the break and indulging in top-notch food and wine. In the busy blur that was this past week, here are some of my favorite things and new finds!


In the spirit of today being 4/20, here’s an article on how to talk to your children about marijuana

A few months ago, I used the Google Arts & Culture app to find my doppelganger in famous paintings. . . . It did not go well (see picture below), but it was very fun! Here’s how you can do it, too.

The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak is hands down one of my kids (ages 3 and 4) favorite books. 

Are you using VSCO? I’m researching an article on all the things I’ve missed while I’ve been busying being a mom, and this app was a new one to me.
