Friday Favorites: Our Last Week in the City, Celebrating My Birthday and Father’s Day Picks

It’s been a week over here! I celebrated my 35th birthday AND we are all very busy enjoying our FINAL week in the city! It’s crazy that after living here for almost a decade, we are turning in our resident pass for a big backyard, a garage and all.the.space.

People keep asking me if I’m sad about it – but honestly, I’ve been packing up the house since January – decluttering, organizing, minimizing, staging – and since we closed on the new house over a month ago, I’ve been slowly moving things over each week. We really only have a few necessities and furniture left to take over. I’m not sad about leaving the city at all – I will miss my friends and the kids friends that we get to walk around the corner or next door and see all the time – and the ease, along with the hustle and bustle of it all – but I’m ready to move. I’m ready for the space and the next chapter. I’ll be doing another post on all that next week, so stay tuned.

So yes, this week I celebrated my 35th birthday. I think it was the first time in almost 15 years we didn’t celebrate it down the beach – but it was so nice to be able to be in the city with friends! I was treated to my favorite meals, a mani/pedi date, flowers and other treats from my favorite – including my cupcake in a cone birthday treat from my mom.

Also as a birthday treat, Charles and I enjoyed our last night out in the city {while we live here} – he took me to my favorite little spot – Talula’s Garden. Here’s a throwback post from my first visit there back in 2013 – it’s still my favorite because it’s in such a great location, tucked away and the food is always incredible. It was nice to be able to get away just us two – especially since we’ve got a crazy week of moving and packing ahead of us.

I mentioned earlier this week on the blog – we’ve got a fun trip to Hershey planned for this weekend. It was sort of perfect how it fell right in between my birthday and also Father’s Day. It’s going to be fun to celebrate there – even though we have so much to do at home – it’s always nice to getaway.

For Father’s Day this year, I’ve partnered with American Greetings – so if you are still in need of a card for good ‘ol dad – head on over to my Instagram for a coupon!

Now I’ve got two fun little Father’s Day Gift ideas, for anyone who is still shopping today. Dads {and guys in general} can be so hard to shop for – so I was so excited when I was able to try out the new KeySmart Pro with Tile Smart location.

This is a compact key organizer that can let you track your missing keys on a map – with the free Tile app on your phone. Its so awesome because it can make your keys ring if you are searching for them! It also works the opposite way and can help your find your phone if you’ve misplaced it! I think its a great gift for guys because it can hold up to 10 keys, a flashlight and a bottle opener. I think its an awesome + useful gift for anyone!

Another great gift idea for dad {or anyone really!} are these incredible PaMu wireless slides. These things are incredible for so many reasons – The charging case charges your headphones AND your iPhone – which is amazing and

And my last little Friday Find of the day, not really Father’s Day or Birthday related, but still equally as awesome – TealTrunk – a Silicone Sponge and Scrubber Multipurpose Household Kitchen and Bathroom Cleaning. It’s Eco-Friendly, Heat Resistant, Odor and Mildew Free!

Sort of a little random in this week’s Friday Favorites – but since I’m in the middle of moving and cleaning I’m super into anything that makes any of that a little easier! This sponge is great because it’s super easy to hold, has the fish scale pattern for better scrubbing grip and a mix of scrubbers for a gentle scrub with no risk of scratching your kitchen tools. It’a also SUPER FLEXIBLE to get into all those dirty and hard to reach places!

I’ve been using this thing on everything – for washing dishes, cups, pots, pans, plates and all other kitchen tools. It’s also great to wash fruit and veggies and can even be used to CLEAN your MAKEUP BRUSHES and PAINT BRUSHES since silicone Doesn’t absorb it WON’T STAIN! Another great thing for our home renovations!

Can’t say enough good things about this little scrubber brush! Definitely a fabulous find !

Now I’d love to know what you are loving this week! Please share !
