Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!!  This week was a really busy one, it was the first week back for teachers, my birthday, and both the girls had their open houses at school!  They are both so excited for next week, but also a little nervous.  Avalon shocked me the other day when she said (out of nowhere) "mama, I'm a little scared for pee-school", and Waverly keeps trying to figure out how she will do the monkey bars without me there to help her.  Umm, how do moms survive this?! ;)  Luckily though, they both loved their teachers and Avalon actually got upset when the open house was over & she had to leave, so it gave me just the encouragement I needed to be the strong mama bear on Tuesday.  Also, on a side note, if your kids haven't gone back yet and you are looking for some fun things to do for the first back back, this article I came across has so many cute ideas!

I thought I would kick off the three-day weekend with some of the things I am loving right now.  Fall is such a fun time of year for ALL THE THINGS! :)

I just ordered these loafers for school and can't wait for them to get here.  They will go with everything and most of the reviews on them are so good (I am obsessed with reading all the reviews)!  These leopard ones are equally as amazing, I had such a hard time deciding!

I love this rug so much, as a fun accent over a rug you already have placed or in any space really.  We have another jute rug and it doesn't show dirt from kids, so that's a plus as well.

We are ALMOST done with the girls bathroom remodel and I can't wait to share it soon.  My husband gutted the entire thing and did it all himself, it has been a huge project and I just can't even explain how good it feels to be able to give the girls a bath again.  Now that most of the big work is done, we are in the decorating phase -- I got these stools and love them for any room in the house.

I am having such a hard time finding the girls good shoes for school.  They both (especially Waverly) would rather wear some sort of high heeled dress-up shoes than the kind of easy-to-walk in shoes I know teachers want them to wear.  I just got them each a pair of Mini Melissa's (so cute for little girls!) and also think a pair of these would be so easy for the mornings.

Anyone who knows me knows I have a sweet tooth.  And both my girls have inherited it as well, most days we are lucky to get Avalon to eat anything but sweets!  Halo Top recently sent us some coupons to get some of their ice cream, it is SO GOOD, and good for you!  Our favorite kind was cookies & cream, there are a ton more to choose from as well.

And lastly, a few pictures from our week.  My brother who lives in Colorado surprised the girls by sending them an Elsa kite to our house -- sweetest thing ever -- so we took advantage of the cooler weather, and also a picture with the girls for my birthday.  Don't ask me how old I am, mainly because I swear I can't keep up my actual age anymore.


Wishing you a very happy weekend and also sending our love to all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey. XO

  1. "Pee-school" ...I can't!!! :) Too cute. I'd love to see the girls' bathroom reveal when it's time -- I've been itching to redo our girls' bathroom, as well. So many options! Happy Friday!

  3. Hahaha! It's funny you say you can't keep up with your age because I swear I have to figure out what year it is and then subtract from what year I was born to even figure out how old I am turning! LOL.
