Friday Favorites-10.13.23

FRIDAY! My goodness-those short weeks get me EVERY SINGLE TIME! Hope you guys have had a good week and are just as happy to see the weekend arrive! I’m here with my girl, Andrea, to bring you a dose of my latest Friday FAVORITES!

I snagged this cookie mix months ago and we just never got around to making them, but this past week when the Rangers were playing {what happened to be their final game of the series} Gary and Marla came over to watch with us and I finally made these cookies. I must report-they were DELICIOUS! I bought the cinnamon icing and iced them as soon as they were out of the oven so the entire cookie became more of a cinnamon roll situation. They’re absolutely perfect for fall! Try them now and tell me they’re not a new FAVORITE. 😉


The boys in my house are all smiles right now thanks to the Texas Rangers, their FAVORITE baseball team. The Rangers made it to the ALCS with games starting Sunday. Remember when I tried to choose a baseball team and really get into it earlier this year? Turns out baseball season is way too long for me. I got distracted by my own kids’ baseball seasons, NFL football, college football, Big Brother, and so many other things that basically happen inside baseball season because it’s so long!



You guys! Fall weather has officially hit North Texas this weekend. We have seven games/events on Saturday and to think I’m going to get to do most of it in some kind of legging/sweatshirt combo makes me GIDDY!! These fall temps are my FAVORITE!


These two items have become some of my FAVORITE things. Sometimes at night it’s hard for me to fully relax and well, these two items REALLY help. They also help if you have headaches or allergy issues. The migraine relief cap and the eye massager with heat are both amazing! Also, I just found this…

The Nodpod? It’s a small weighted blanket for your eyes. It looks like a weighted sleep mask and has good reviews about helping you fall back to sleep and even stay asleep. If you’ve tried it, please let me know what you think.


These portable chargers are the chargers I packed for our Disney trip last week. They worked perfectly and we all took turns charging our phones toward the end of each day. They’re under $20 right now as well!


Did you see my Magic Kingdom day recap yesterday? I shared a little look at our first day of Fall Break. It was lots of rides, Disney magic, and a great time with my FAVORITE people.


Okay, friends! I’m off to enjoy all the weekend things! Hope you have a great weekend, friends!

    The cookies sound delicious!!! I was just wondering if your going to show more rooms or do a house tour soon since you talked so much about the house renovation in the past and we never got to see the final results? Thanks.

    Clare gave me a nodpod one time, and it’s such a game changer!

    It probably didn’t help things that you chose the Cardinals as your team and they were awful this year. Fingers crossed that they are back to their winning ways next year!

      I actually chose the Phillies! And they’re still playing! haha! You’re probably thinking about growing up in MO. I was a huge Cardinals fan-like even my college apartment was decorated in Cardinals’ gear!

    Thank you for the charger recommendation, bought some for stocking stuffers! 🙂 Also have you just decided to stick with blogging 3 days a week?! 🙁 Maybe Tuesdays can be designated for house makeover pics.
