Friday Favorites

Hey Friends!

I hope you had a great week.  I’m not sure why this happens but short weeks tend to have me drowning and craving the weekend even more than a five day week.  Why is that?!  My kiddos were out of school on Monday and that just threw us off for the whole week.  So we’re stoked that Friday is HERE!

Today, Narci, Andrea, and I are sharing our FAVORITES with you.  We invite you to join us each and every Friday to do the same.  Blog some favorites and link-up to join!

I have a little look at what’s been happening around here…

There is an amazing flea market about one and a half hours away.  They have EVERYTHING you can think of…new things, old things, used things, etc.  It’s in the small town of Canton, Texas.  It’s fun to go any time but the fall is the BEST time.  Shay and I decided it’d be fun to load up these kiddos and head out for a day in Canton.  I can’t brag on those five kiddos enough.  They were AMAZING!  We spent several hours walking around, shopping, taking it all in.  We ate and we shopped some more before it was time to drive back to McKinney.  We never once had a melt down.  Not once!  A day in Canton is hands down a FAVORITE always.  🙂


Want to know what I bought in Canton?  Nothing but holiday gear for Britt.  I’d mentioned on the drive that she didn’t really have anything “Halloween” to wear.  Well, we took care of that and also scored a couple things like the outfit above that can be maybe “Halloween” or just cute.  😉  These two joined me at the gym and took the cutest picture on our way inside.


My friend, Amanda, celebrated her birthday last week and several of us went out to celebrate!  You guys need to check out this spot in Frisco.  Have you heard of Eight 11?  It’s an outdoor wine bar with some delicious food.  We had a cheese board, the most delicious truffle potato chips, and yummy pizzas.  (And great girl talk as well!)  😉


Last Friday, we met up with the Shulls for a trip to our local pumpkin patch.  They have pony rides, a petting zoo, bounce houses, a hayride, and pumpkins, of course.  It’s right off a busy street so it doesn’t really feel like the country BUT the short five minute drive to get there is amazing.  Bowen enjoyed his little ride with Princess.

Our crew enjoyed a nice cozy hot hayride.  haha! 

We met up again later that evening for dinner on the square before the McKinney Boyd Homecoming Game!  And please take a minute to see Ashby’s pose.  I mean…she has some skills!  It was a great Friday.  Pumpkin patch, the square, and Friday night lights…absolutely perfect!


Saturday-Tab’s mom and step-dad were in town to watch Nixon’s flag football game.  Afterwards we went to the square to eat lunch and do a little shopping.  We stumbled upon a few festivities happening and checked those out.


On Monday evening, Bowen and Ashby went to a cute little pumpkin patch birthday party.  Here they are posing with the birthday girls baby sister.  I was afraid it was gonna be HOT, but the sun went down and the weather was perfect.

These sweet girls turned five and Bowen was excited to celebrate with them!


I shared “A Little Bit of Everything” about these cuties on Tuesday.  You can see it here.


We went to the fair on Tuesday and had the BEST time.  You can read all about it here!  Someone asked about my sweater…it’s pretty thin so perfect for fall in Texas.  🙂

If you can’t tell…we’re doing our best to FALL-HARD!  Pumpkin patch, football game, fair, and just more fun to be had!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Have a GREAT weekend!

    I absolutely LOVE your blog! I found you through reading Shay's blog. Love you both. I just had to comment (and I am not a COMMENTER normally….) you can see the pure love, joy and happiness in sweet Britt's eyes and face lately and it fills my heart with pure joy and happiness. All of this is a testament to you and your family for embracing her with such enormous love. Have a wonderful weekend!
