Friday Favorites!

Friday, November 4, 2016

Hi!! Happy Friday!!
How has your week been?? 
It's crazy to think we are already finishing up the first week of November!!
We had a great week at our house...and we have a full weekend ahead of us! The weather is going to amazing and I don't have to get my 5 kiddos out the door by 7 am...which makes me one HAPPY mama! HA!

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

I know a lot of people are really wanting the weather to be cooler so it feels more like "fall," but I am NOT one of them! HA! Marshall and I were able to sit on the front porch and hand out candy on Halloween night....and he was wearing just a onesie! It was that warm! For a gal who truly despises being cold- this makes me SO happy!  The cold weather will be here soon enough...I am soaking up every minute I can get away with not wearing a coat and flip flops instead of boots! HA!
And how precious is little Marshall??? I just LOVED snuggling my little buddy- it was such a precious time with him!! 
I needed a little makeup bag to keep in my gym bag for when I shower at the gym after I workout. I recently ordered this mini-zipper pouch- and got it personalized with my initials- and I am OBSESSED with how cute it turned out!! I got the City Charcoal Swiss Dot pattern- and chose hot pink thread for my monogram.
For being a "mini" zipper pouch- it holds A LOT. I have a compact, BB cream, lipstick, mascara, blush, eyeliner, bronzer and a bronzer brush in this little bag and it all fits perfectly!! Definitely one of my new FAVORITE bags!!
Before Marshall was born, one of my closest friends made a canvas of the kids' handprints.  Well- she asked to have the canvas back so she could add Marshall's hand- and she gave it to me yesterday!!! Isn't it just the most PRECIOUS thing?? I just LOVE it!!! It is definitely one of my FAVORITE pieces of artwork! :)
Thank you so much Katie!!!
On Tuesday, I shared the recipe for these 5 Ingredient (CRAZY DELICIOUS) Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies. They are definitely the new FAVORITE cookie in our house! They're SO easy to make and they also happen to be gluten-free! You can check out my post HERE for the recipe! If you're in the mood to do some baking this weekend- I highly suggest making these! :)
Just had to share- one of my top three FAVORITE bags is on special this month!!
I use one for a gym bag and another one for our church bag....and I absolutely LOVE this idea for using it as an "on the go" kids activity center!!! I think I might just have to copy it and make one for my kids!! :)
Just FYI: you can shop HERE anytime! And if you ever have any questions- just email me!

Hope you have a FABULOUS Friday and a WONDERFUL weekend!!

  1. I am totally on the same page as you for cooler weather - I live in Minnesota and thankfully it's still in the 60s without snow but I definitely prefer 80s with flip flops :)

  2. I don't like to be cold either. It finally warmed up here this week into the upper 50's. Ha! Everyone was saying how warm it felt. So yes, enjoy it while you've got it. :) And that monogrammed bag is super cute... love the colors.

  3. What a fun week!! I'm loving this gorgeous weather. Looks like we've got another great week ahead of pretty days :) I love hand print art so that's really fun that your friend updated yours to include Marshall. It's crazy how fast their little hands (and feet) grow!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

  4. Marshall is such a handsome little boy. We've had a pretty great week of weather overall. Wednesday was rainy & stormy, but the rest of the week has been pretty fab!

  5. Cute makeup bag! And those peanut butter look so yummy! I'm also liking the look of that last bag - might have to check it out - it seems like you could use it for anything!

  6. The big bag is the BEST! One of my student's gave me one as a Christmas present and it was fully loaded with paper, pens, markers, a couple of gift cards, a coffee cup, and more. It was so cute and thoughtful and I use the bag all. the. time. I also love your makeup bag. That canvas is cute, what a great keepsake. Have a great weekend!

  7. My love of 31 runs deep. I need to shop around and see if there is anything new I must have.

  8. I love that makeup bag and that canvas is adorable! Jess at Just Jess

I love hearing from you! Let's keep it nice though...ain't nobody got time for anything else!
