Friday Favorites!

Friday, October 14, 2016

Hi!!! Happy Friday!!!
Another week is down in the books...and life is good :) 

We had a fun, busy week at our house- how about you???

Here's some of my FAVORITES from this past week! 

//ONE//
I write my girls a note every day and put it in their lunch. I will be honest- some days I just want to throw a sandwich, a juice box and some gold fish in their lunch bags and be DONE. But- at the beginning of the school year- I made a "goal" to write them a note every day :) So- anyway...the other night when I was putting Charlotte to bed- she said, "Mommy- you might want to look in that spot where we hang papers up." I went downstairs and looked in that exact spot and saw this PRECIOUS note. And we can please talk about the eyes she drew that are "winking???" I am telling you- I wasn't sure how I would feel about my kids getting older...but it is SO fun and SO awesome!

One of my best blogging buddies Whitney, shared about THE perfect utility vest she picked up from Sam's a couple weeks ago. Being a huge copy cat- I went to Sam's last weekend in search of the THE VEST. And I found it! It is $20 and SO cute!!! I really don't have a lot of clothes- I have a good foundation of basics that I mix and match a lot- and this vest is the perfect addition!!! Thank you for the heads up about this vest Whitney!!! 
//THREE//
Um. Do any of you know about Sid the Science Kid?? Well- he is a big FAVORITE of mine. HA!  James JUST started to like watching shows....and he is OBSESSED with Sid. Do you want to know why I love Sid so much?? Because I can now take a quick 10 minute shower or take care of Marshall in his room- because when Sid is on James is GLUED to the TV. YES- you are reading this right- I am happy my kid loves TV. HA! James is a complete tornado- so for him to just sit still for a couple of minutes has really been life changing. HA!

//FOUR//
Speaking of my precious James....earlier this week- my daughter had a field trip to a local pumpkin patch, and Marshall, James and I went with her! It was the BEST day. The weather was gorgeous and it was just so fun to be outside doing all the Fall things :)
So- we took a tractor ride to the pumpkin patch- to pick out a pumpkin- and while I am trying to safely get off the tractor while wearing Marshall and holding Celine's hand...James manages to scurry off and this is where I found him. Sitting with one of the guys who works on the farm...talking to him about his tools that he had in the golf cart. 
He is NUTS. And I love him SO much!!
//FIVE//
Can I be totally cliched and say that fall is one of my current FAVORITES?? I normally don't like when the weather gets cooler- but it was a GORGEOUS week here in Indianapolis and I just couldn't help but be so thankful for the cool breezes and warm sunshine!!! 
I hope you have a FABULOUS Friday and a WONDERFUL weekend!!!
XOXOXO

  1. That note is absolutely precious! And I have actually bought quite a few clothing items at Sam's Club! I know, not so fancy, but with two little boys it's not often that I head to the mall so sometimes I throw in a clothing item while I'm there getting food.

  2. That vest looks great on you! Can you please share some details on the shoes you are wearing in that photo? I'm looking for a good pair of flats in a neutral color. I'm guessing a busy Mom of 5 like yourself is running around all the time and can recommend some comfortable shoes!

    1. Thanks Steph! So my flats are about 10 years old-I know I got them on clearance at Old Navy for about $2.50!! Ha! I really am not a big fan of wearing much other than flip-flops but when I gets colder I stick to my hunter rain boots or my knock off UGGs. I do know that Walmart has some really cute flats right now-they're very inexpensive and actually quite comfortable!

  5. So let me just tell you that your love of Walmart is my love of Sid. We watch him every afternoon for 30 minutes and then we try to duplicate some of the fun the episode showcases. No joke, I want to be Sid when I grow up.

    1. Hi Kristi! Yes-definitely check out your Sam's for the vast! I was so glad Whitney shared where she got her vest I would've never thought to look there! And you can't be 20 bucks for something that you will wear all the time! :)

  8. What a great week :) I love all of your favorites!! I'm so glad you love that utility vest! It's so cute and such a great deal. Welcome to the club :) Your sweet note from Charlotte is a treasure. I love my babies being little, but I think I'll melt into a puddle the day one of them writes me a little winking note :) Olive used to watch Sid when she was the same age as James. She was full on obsessed and so was I because it meant I could shower in peace haha. Fall in Indiana has been gorgeous!! Hoping for another beautiful weekend ahead.

  9. You look so cute in the utility vest...great find! I love getting a note (or even a nice text will do) from the kids. Sid the Science kid was one of Jack's favorite shows. No shame in using the tv to occupy the kids when you need to! :) Have a great weekend!
