Favorite Things & a Favorite Things Partay

A few favorites so far this summer...

Mason jars and fresh flowers (Target has these blue vintage-style jars!)


I picked up this little crate at Marshall's recently; it was an ugly mauve/fuchsia color so I gave it a paint job with acrylic yellow and some gel stain. It had 5 little compartments perfect for mason jars.


 These shoes from TJ Maxx. Or just TJ Maxx in general.


My Silhouette machine. My sister-in-law and I have been personalizing everything we own. It's getting quite out of hand, but it's just too much fun. Here are few things we've done:





I'm also slightly obsessed with the anchor trend right now.
Love this hipster from Old Navy - wouldn't it be cute monogrammed?





I bought this necklace for $10! 


Even Chad loves anchors. Check out his socks.
Just kidding. He actually bought these at the suggestion of my SIL to make me laugh. And I did.



 And a couple weeks ago, the gals at the Compound hosted a 
FAVORITE THINGS PARTY!


It was on a Tuesday night and me and Keri Lynn (aforementioned SIL) were both able to go and we had the BEST time. If you've ever considered hosting a Favorite THings party, DO IT. 
My aunt Kristi hosted the party at her house; everyone brought a finger food to share; we ate tons of delicious dips, a pretzel/chocolate chip/buttery gooey brownie, mini fruit pizzas, chocolate chex, Chick fil a nuggets, and the best part... home made cherry limeades with NUGGET ICE. 
It doesn't get much better than nugget ice. Unless you break out an ice cold Diet Coke. Amen.






Anyway, everyone brought a finger food to share, and then we also each brought 5 gifts; the gifts were to be 5 of the same item, $6-$10 each. So everyone brought 5 of their favorite things, and everyone left with 5 new things! It was such a fun night. 
We ate first and talked for a while then headed upstairs for the gift exchange.


Before the gift giving, we'd each written our name down 5 times on little pieces of paper, and put them into a bucket. Then one person at a time stood up and presented their favorite thing, told why it was their favorite or explained the gift if needed, and then that person drew 5 names out of the bucket. Each person whose name was drawn took home that particular gift!
(If you have a smaller party, say 8 or less people, you can also do it where everyone just brings as many gifts as there are guests, and everyone leaves with that many gifts. We did it this way because we had around 15 people so this was easier and less expensive too.)
Every time someone's name was drawn for a gift, we all cheered and clapped and yelled like we were on The Price is Right. And the funny thing is, we were all dead serious. It was so fun and exciting. We laughed so hard and we just had the best time. Not to mention the gifts were AWESOME!


 Here are just a few of the things I received...

Bath & Body goodies, Mrs. Meyer's dish soap, Christy Nockels CD, Baby Lips lip gloss, Emi Jay hair ties, travel jewelry box, earrings, and I also got some Starbucks frappucinos. Other items were cute notepads, pens, cupcake liners, Crossword books, Bath & Body lip gloss, and I brought the plastic anchor cups (from above) and we personalized them after the party with the Silhouette.


 My aunt had us all a big gift bag to pack up our items before we left.


This was such a fun night and a great escape from the laundry and the dishes! Not to mention we all left with some serious loot, which made this party extra special. I want to host one soon myself!

 If you have any Favorite Things you'd like to share, please do!
