We’re so excited to bring back this FUN series to GWS today! If you are a long time reader, you might remember we had a series called Friday Favors back in the day where we shared our fave finds of the week. Well, we (the editorial team here at GWS – there are 6 of us, 5 gals and 1 guy) have been chatting during our weekly calls about the new shows we’re bingeing, our favorite home finds, and (of course) the memes that made us laugh — and we’re kinda guessing that you guys like to talk about that stuff, too. So beginning today, all of us on the editorial team will pop in on Fridays to share the love and a few of our current favorite finds! From what’s entertaining us to what’s keeping us sane to what’s bringing a little joy into our lives – it’s all here.

First off, let us be the first to wish you a Happy Mother’s Day weekend! If you’re not with your mom (sad face), this is your reminder to give her a call. If you are a mom, we BOW DOWN to your greatness. Please treat yourself this weekend, okay? Now, let’s get to it!

In case you missed it, here are 10 ways to celebrate your original wedding date if you’ve decided to postpone.

Here’s a fun and customizable way to ask: will you be my bridesmaid?

Line drawings are all the rage right now and we’re particularly loving this romantic print to bring an instant update to that gallery wall.

Have you guys been watching The Last Dance? If you are a sports fan – or even if you aren’t — it’s so well done.

Major heart eyes for this dress!

New Hearth & Hand Collection for outdoor dining just launched at Target! Jen bought this candle along with this pillow for her patio – oh, and need to find a place to hang this hammock for those upcoming summer nights!

And speaking of outdoors, this movie projector from Amazon is the best thing you never knew your backyard needed.

This IG account is our new go-to for home decor inspo!

Looking for a fabric face mask? We rounded up the best fabric masks that also give back!

We miss supporting our local coffee shop so Trade is a new obsession! They deliver a bag of freshly roasted beans, personalized to your taste, right your door. It’s basically like visiting the best coffee shops around the country every morning.

Friendly reminder that spring is not canceled and you need to buy yourself some flowers. Instant mood lift! All these bouquets are under $50.

Jen’s family had a tie-dye party with this kit and it was so much fun! Great weekend activity.

So much cooking at home these days! These new knives are cute and affordable.

Recently became a huge fan of Holly Thaggard (Supergoop! founder) thanks to this podcast and immediately ordered the new Glow Screen. Can confirm there is real magic inside: leaves skin all glowy, fights fine lines, and protects it from the sun!

Can’t recommend one of our fave Netflix shows, Peaky Blinders, enough!

New trend: fruit dresses like this one, and this one.

Finally, for when you want to be healthy but you also just need something sweet, these “Twix” Bars are really easy and REALLY yummy. (Don’t skip the salt!)
