Friday Favorites

Wahoo for Friday!  Friday nights around here are spent being crazy lazy.  I’m looking forward to movie night with my peeps.

Narci, Andrea, and I are teaming up again to share our Friday Favorites.  You should join us!

Here are some of my random favorites from the week…
Ebby Lee’s sweet teacher sent this to me.  She said she’d been a great calendar helper all week!  🙂  This girl LOVES school and her teacher is her FAVORITE.  

On Wednesday, I blogged some game day ideas for Baylor, Bama, Penn State, and A and M.  If you missed it, you can see it here.

Gold/Leopard Tunic:  Exact here.  
I got several goodies from a new boutique, KenLee Cait.  That boutique is giving all of you 10% off with the code ERIKA10!!

This pictures CRACK me up!  In Bowen’s preschool class last week the teachers made a tattling ear.  Apparently if you had something to tattle instead of telling the teachers, you were supposed to go tell the tattling ear.  hahaha!  And Bowen had a lot to get off his chest.  Look how he’s even pointing with his finger!  Seriously….my FAVORITE thing I saw on FB this week.  Hilarious!

I mean….who was he tattling on, right?  I asked and he told me that someone in his class wouldn’t share the toys so he told the tattling ear.  He clearly understood the concept.  haha!

I posted this on IG, but it totally made me LOL.  Isn’t this true?  A FAVORITE from the week!

Last weekend my mom and grandparents came to town to hold down the fort while Tab and I were both gone.  It just happened to be Grandparent’s Day at school, so they got to each lunch with both Ebby Lee and Nixon.

M came too so they had quite the little group of people to sit with.  My kids are blessed to have these four adults loving on them all the time.  These are some of their very FAVORITE people.

Earlier this year we discussed baby nurseries.  My how times have changed since Ebby Lee was a baby.  Well, maybe not “times” but nursery trends for sure!  A sweet reader, Lauren, just got her daughters nursery finished and shared these pictures with me.  LOVING the pink and gold in this sweet room.  Thanks so much for sharing, Lauren!!  This nursery is a new FAVORITE!

A FAVORITE text I got over the weekend had this picture….Nixon scoring a run for the Astros!!

Yesterday I shared my heart and blogged some thoughts on friendship.  If you missed it, you can read it here.  A sweet reader, Emily, sent this to me after reading my post and I couldn’t agree more!!  Thanks, Emily!

Hat day was earlier this week and this girl wore her FAVORITE hat.

Don’t forget…on Monday, join us for a Favorite Things party where we’re sharing our FAVORITE scarves!

This weekend our town has a little Oktoberfest festival with some fun things for the kids and good food.  We’re headed there tomorrow and are looking forward to it!  Have a great weekend!

    I feel like I need to go revise my Favorites post to include the picture of Bowen with the tattling air. His raised eyebrows and the little point are hysterical!!!!

    When I was in 1st grade my teacher had a little cut out of a man taped to the cupboard. His name was Mr. Tattle and it was the same concept as the tattling ear. I tell you, Mr. Tattle often had a line waiting to talk to him! 🙂
