Friday Favorites


Andrea, Narci, and I are linking up again for this week’s edition of FRIDAY FAVORITES!!  

1-Kindergarten Kick-Off Dinner
Ebby Lee and I attended Andrea and Shay’s Kindergarten Kick-Off Dinner.  It was a super sweet night!!

All the sweet kiddos are heading to kindergarten this month!

I took Kensington and Ebby Lee to dance this week.  Sweetest thing ever!

3-Sweet Kiddos
Love spending my days with these crazies!

4-Date Night
I had a GREAT night with this handsome guy on Wednesday.  (If you’re local) We went to Mash’d for the first time and it was DELISH!!

5-My Wish List

Last week I shared my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Wish List.  There are only a couple days left at amazing prices!!  Go HERE to check it out!

 6-Zoo Trip
Yesterday, we had an unusually cool day so we headed to the zoo with the Shulls and the Dreffs.  Narci always says the funniest things to get the kiddos to smile.  🙂

The girls were READY!!!  (and looking good I might add) 🙂

Bowen was all about getting out of the stroller to SEE!!

The crazies were bouncing around like the kangaroos.

Everybody needs a group picture beside a warthog, right?

The girls decided they needed a model-pose picture.  The boys weren’t feeling it.  ha!

This girl got HOT and turned her hat around.  I cracked up EVERY time I looked at her!

Bowen wasn’t sure WHAT to think about that goat.

Nixon was ALL about the farm animal section.

A GREAT day at the zoo with some of my FAVORITE girls! (and kids)

7-First Day of School
Thank you SO much for all your sweet comments and your great ideas!!  I’ve LOVED reading all the fun traditions you guys have!!  As nervous as I am, I can’t wait to start some fun new traditions.  And…(thank you for reminding me because I totally needed to hear it) I know those kinder teachers are going to be GREAT!  If you missed the comments and ideas, go check them out HERE!

Hope you girls have a GREAT weekend!!  Thanks so much for reading!  Can’t wait to see your Friday Faves!

    I can't believe how close those giraffes were! Is this the Dallas zoo? We have been to Fort Worth several times but never the Dallas zoo.

    Yeh to it all! Such sweet kiddos! And friends!
    Date nights are definitely hard to come by when you have kids! Glad you two got to have a night together 🙂
    That zoo trip looks like so much fun! Now that the temps seem to be more Fall like in Ohio I think I need to plan a trip to Cleveland or Columbus soon! X always loves the zoo!

    And a side note…do you watch the show Royal Pains on USA? I think of you everytime I watch it because I swear you are twins with the girl who plays Paige Lawson. Her name is Brooke D'Orsay. You must check her out!

And I had to put my brave Mommy face on last year when my son went to kindergarten 🙂 As soon as I dropped him off I was a big baby. But, by the next week he was enjoying school and I was happy for him! E is going to love Kindergarten!!!!
