Friday Favorites-October 25th Edition


WAHOO!  My kiddos are off on Monday so today at 3:00 p.m. marks a long weekend for us and we are HERE FOR IT!

In Friday fashion, I’ve teamed up with Narci and Andrea to bring you FRIDAY FAVORITES!  Typically, I share five favorites to keep things nice and easy but today I’ve got more favorites from my week.

First up, I want to wish Shay, this bestie of mine, a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRIEND!  I love you so much and am so thankful for you!  You know her as Mix and Match Mama, but to me she’s a bestie of almost twelve years.  

Some of my very favorite things about Shay are…
*She and I are both planners {my husband might call us calendar freaks} so much so that when I want to talk about something in October 2020 she’s not gonna blink an eye.  She’s just ready to chat.
*I love getting to be a part of this Mix and Match Travel Agency with her!
*We share a love of all things cheesy when it comes to food. No lie-when we go to dinner with the hubbies the husbands always order something much healthier than we order.  Shay and I will order many things, split things and enjoy it all!
*She makes the BEST second mama to my kiddos.  I’m sure you guys had second moms too growing up whose homes you were at an awful lot, maybe had favorite food they made even, knew that you could be your true and complete self around them just like your own mom and Shay makes such a GREAT one to all four of my kiddos.  When you’re a mom, someone loving your kiddos means more than them even loving you.

Really this list could go on and on and on…


I love you so much and hope you have the BEST BIRTHDAY!


My first FAVORITE is watching that cutie on the mound.  Nixon’s love for baseball runs deep and it’s so much fun watching him play.

This is not so much a favorite…Britty woke up on Saturday morning with a swollen eye.  It looked like mosquito bit her on her eyelid, but my FAVORITE was how she handled it.  Nothing’s keeping her down.

On Sunday afternoon we made it to Libby’s 5th Rockstar Birthday Party.  This was Britt’s first party to attend at Made of Sugar and Spice in Downtown McKinney.  {Ebby Lee had her fifth birthday there too.}

She got her nails painted, make-up done, and hair styled.

You guys!  A FAVORITE thing to watch.

Bowen wrapped up his fall baseball season with some of his FAVORITE friends and FAVORITE coach {his dad} on Monday night.

I saw this FAVORITE meme earlier in the week and couldn’t agree more.  This is SO ME!!

Do you wanna know Britt’s FAVORITE pair of shoes?  Those sequin sparkly Ugg boots!  Wanna know what she thinks they go with?  EVERYTHING!  😉

    Oh my gosh! Why am I teary?! I am!!!! Thank you so much for the sweet birthday mention!!! It's all so true…especially since only 30 minutes ago you and I were at a 4 year old's birthday party and we were the only two adults shoving cheesy breakfast tacos down our throats. Bahaha! I'm so honored to spend my days with YOU!!

    Aw, I once woke up in second grade with my eye swollen shut from a bug bite. I still remember how uncomfortable that was! Poor kiddo.
