Friday Favorites-October 11th Edition

Happy Friday, Friends!

As you’re reading this, I’m probably waking up {sleeping in this morning-no early gym time for me!} and it’s supposed to be cool and raining in McKinney!  EEEKKKK!!!  Hello, Fall!  We’re so glad to see you!

I’m joining forces with my girls, Andrea and Narci, to bring you FRIDAY FAVORITES!  These are the things I’d share with you if we were meeting for coffee and chatting about our weeks….the highlights, if you will.  Let me share a little of my FAVORITES in the Slaughter House.

First up are these cuties…Britty and Madeley.  Shay and I made the drive to Canton, Texas, last Friday with these two school-skippers for a day of shopping.  Once a month in east Texas {Canton-to be exact} there’s a big market with a WIDE variety of things.  And when I say WIDE variety, I mean everything from puppies to beds to fall decorations and so much more.  Texas hadn’t quite gotten the fall memo so it was hot, but these two were troopers!  A FAVORITE from my week.  🙂


I’ve mentioned that Britt is playing soccer this season.  While she doesn’t really kick the ball that often {we’re averaging once a game at this point}, she absolutely loves spotting her people in the stands and waving as big as she can.  I’ve gotta be honest…it slays me.  This sweet thing on the soccer field waving so big at her people.  

I’d also like to mention Britty had a big check-up appointment and visited her speech therapist she only sees about twice a year.  In the past, she’s been too shy to really attempt to talk or the therapist could just hardly get her to say much.  Not this week…this week Britt named all the animals she pulled out of her hat {literally} and the speech therapist gushed and gushed about how far she’s come.  To a mama who is surrounded by three-year-olds who are talking up a storm, it can be a little discouraging so my mama heart was swelling hearing this therapist gush.  She sees cleft kids all day, every day and was impressed.  Definitely a FAVORITE!

I’d like to add we still have a LONG way to go, but hearing some praise along this journey was good for my soul.

Did you see these pumpkin minis Narci took last week?  They turned out SO CUTE!!  If you’re local, you should e-mail Narci STAT to set up a time to take some pictures of your pumpkins!  I’ve already ordered my pictures and am anxiously awaiting their arrival.  A new FAVORITE fall decoration!


Last weekend we were busy with ALL THE SPORTS and Nixon’s baseball team pulled out the championship win!  WAHOO!  Not only was the sky AMAZING but seeing the big smiles on these boys faces…so worth it!  FAVORITE moment!  They played their hearts out and earned those rings!


How my days are mostly spent…working and with a cup of coffee in hand.  🙂  The make-up and hair is NOT how most of my days are spent. ha!  I shared my Target haul recently but finally got to wear this top.  It’s light so it’s great for fall days here in North Texas….a new FAVE!


Okay, friends!  Thanks for having coffee with me and discussing my week.  How was yours??  I’d love to hear a FAVORITE from your week!  

I’ll see you back here on Monday!

    I have a 3 year old cleft cutie adopted from China too! Totally hear you on the speech frustrations and knowing what a long road these little ones have in front of them.

    I think you would enjoy a Loopy phone case! By the way you’re holding the phone in your selfie, I think you would LOVE it! I have a case, and I don’t think I could go back to a normal phone case! They come in many different colors/patterns! You’ll learn you can hold so much in your hand and only have the loop around your finger.
