Five on Friday

TGIF & Happy HALFWAY through November!
So excited to be linking up with Darci & the ladies for another edition on FIVE ON FRIDAY!

ONE:  Waverly Maye is obviously my #1 obsession, but there are lots of other things I just cannot get enough of!  Three of those would incude (1) shoes, (2) leopard, & (3) matching my mini.  This week, I combined ALL three!


I have had my leopard loafers (similar here) for a while & love to pair just about anything with them.  We got Waverly's this fall & as usual, BabyGap did not disapoint.  I forsee many more future outfits with these little gems!  And as for my mini, I am so proud to report that she shares my love of shoes!  "Soos" are one of her go-to words & she really can be entertained by playing with them.  Oh, she warms my heart! :)
 
TWO:  What about a little leopard hat to match those loafers?! 

 
Since it is now freezing in VB, hats have become a must & this one is TOO cute!  I am also loving that Waverly Maye now understands "cheese" and will smile immediately when hearing it!
 
THREEThanksgiving Festiveness.  I am (MORE than) excited for the Christmas season, but I am still trying to embrace all that sweet November has to offer!  Our mantle is officially "Thanksgiving-friendly", Waverly's bookshelf is fully stocked for November & we have been eating in theme, of course!
 
 
 Don't get me wrong,  we have already purchased a few red & green PJs, a Santa sippy, & the Christmas decor has been taken out ... but I just don't want to forget about Thanksgiving!  It needs love too! :) 
 
FOUR:  Speaking of Thanksgiving, last week I shared how thankful I was for Waverly Maye.  This week, it's all about the hubby.
 
 
We had a rare night out last week for a friend's wedding & as always, it was so fun to be able to get out & spend some alone time!  I love him so & am so thankful for him!!!!  I love this little life we have created together & I am forever grateful that he is my hubby & best friend. :)
 
FIVE: Christmas Card Pictures.  Told you I was already had visions of the holiday dancing in my head!  This weekend we are taking our family pictures and I CANNOT WAIT!  I obviously love any excuse for a picture & there is no better reason that Christmas!  I ordered Waverly Maye this plaid headband for the pictures & just LOVE how festive & very on trend it is! :)
 
We hope that everyone has a perfect weekend!  Enjoy these November moments, before we know it will officially be the hustle & bustle of the holiday season.  SO VERY exciting, I cannot wait!
XOXO
