Hip, hip, horray for the weekend! Time to share some Friday Favorites, y’all!

|| ONE || Pathfinder Love We’re all pretty excited about getting a new ride. We started searching for a vehicle with a third row + I told my husband that I only had two requirements: the exterior had to be red + it couldn’t be a minivan. Along with the Nissan Pathfinder, we looked at the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot + Hyundia Santa Fe but in the end, the Pathfinder was the winner. I told my daughter that this vehicle would be hers one day + I truly hope that will be possible. My last vehicle lasted us over ten years. I need this one to last for at least twelve. (Fingers crossed.)

|| TWO || Sunny, Spring Day Love We’re taking advantage of every sunny day we get. Earlier this week, the kids + I drove downtown to Portland’s Waterfront. It is an incredibly popular spot, even more so when the cherry blossoms are blooming. I had seen tons of photos over the years but didn’t have any of my own, until now. It was quite beautiful.

|| THREE || Kyra’s Bake Shop LoveRecently, I learned of a neighboring town’s bake shop that was a four-time winner of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. WHAT?! How had I not been there before? The kids + I stopped in at Kyra’s Bake Shop for some of their goodies + turns out, it’s all gluten free. I don’t have a gluten intolerance, so I haven’t tried many gluten free goodies but honestly, I couldn’t even tell that these were gluten free. They were delicious + didn’t lack any flavor. YUMMY! We’ll be back. =)

|| FOUR || Fifteen in a Thirty LoveAnybody else out there loving Sam Hunt’s Body Like a Backroad single?! Ah! It’s my new fav. Pretty sure it’s this year’s song of the summer. (And yes, I did drive around looking for a 30 MPH sign. #dork)

|| FIVE || Tulip Fest 2017 LoveForty acres. Row + rows of tulips. It was just as beautiful as the years before. Check out more pictures taken at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival here.

Hope your weekending’s happy!

    You are a talented photographer! Glad to hear you are loving your new ride – we were just talking about getting a 3rd row vehicle and I also am not interested in getting a mini van – ever!
