Hey! Hey! Friday, it’s good to see you!
I’m joining forces with Andrea and Narci to bring you Friday Favorites. Each Friday we host a link-up inviting you to join us by blogging your faves as well. Typically, my Fridays consist of a hot random mess of favorites and today is no different. 🙂
First up, I want to say a huge THANK YOU again for all your calls, e-mails, texts, messages, and prayers the past two weeks for Britt. She’s doing so much better. She’s still on her liquid diet so she’s a bit hangry at times (who wouldn’t be?!). But she’s doing so much better. We truly appreciate you all so much. You guys are my FAVORITE! I shared a little recap and update in a post earlier this week.
Bowen Slaughter started Pre-K this week and is now going three days a week. He loves his teachers, has lots of friends in his new class, and had a great first week. Seeing this cutie love school is a new FAVORITE. He’s always loved school, but I didn’t know what he’d think about going three days…so far, so good!
I’m telling you…it feels like just last year he was born! How did he get so big?
A new FAVORITE shirt arrived in the mail. I’m always on the lookout for cute, comfy items that can be worn during errands, ballgames, and other mom activities but still allow me to look pulled together. This jersey shirt fits the bill. I’ll keep you posted on how it washes and dries. And for those of you always on the lookout for good game-day gear this comes in navy/white, grey/white, and green/gold. Lots of options with those colors! Not bulky at all…had a cute fit.
With Bowen at school three days a week, I’ve had a lot of one-on-one time with Miss Britt. One-on-one time with this girl is a FAVORITE. 😉 #justthetwoofus On this day we drove to meet a friend who’d recently had a baby, the weather was amazing, and we took the babies on a walk.
On Wednesday, I shared my love of a loafer. All my seventh grade dreams came true when I spotted this LEOPARD pair at the mall last week. FAVORITE! You can read all about my seventh grade loafer love in this post and see some cute leopard and fall tops as well.
A group of girlfriends and I have a FAVORITE Scarf Exchange tradition. We get together right after Labor Day, exchange scarves, and it kind of rings in the fall season so to speak. We all bring a scarf, exchange it “Dirty Santa” or “White Elephant” style, and go home with a new accessory for fall. This year it was at my friend, Karla’s house. She had her house all decorated for the season, there was chicken tortilla soup for dinner, and a delicious cobbler for dessert. What made this evening even more special was Manda’s husband had thought of this evening and how much she’d be missed and he decided to give us all one of her scarves as a sweet reminder of her on this night. HOW special was that?! It was such a sweet surprise and nothing we were expecting. We missed her so much but felt like she was with us. (In Manda’s scarves above.)
And with our new scarves we exchanged.
I get asked a lot about this group of girls and I must tell you this group has been friends for almost ten years. If you’re working on friendships, please don’t be discouraged…friendships take time. I’m so very thankful for this group of ladies. I love them so very much.
My friend, Lauren, just published her first edition of The Art of Living Beautifully, an online magazine all about our town, McKinney, Texas. Lauren asked me to contribute just a bit so I’d love for you to go check it out. You can find me over there. (Pay close attention to Page 4. :))I was so impressed with her skills. Lauren truly out did herself! The magazine looks GREAT! Definitely a FAVORITE this week!
This past weekend was the first big weekend of college football. Tab was at the University of Oklahoma, which happens to be a short drive from us. He decided to take Nixon to tag along for the weekend and Nix had a BLAST!
All the other officials were so sweet and made the weekend so much fun! They all played miniature golf and rode go-karts on Friday night. (It was a team building activity but happened to be RIGHT up Nixon’s alley.) On Saturday, Mr. Dan helped out his kicking game.
And then all of Nixon’s seven-year-old dreams came true when he was catching passes in the end zone. A FAVORITE weekend was had by two of my boys.
Tab has plans to take the other two on separate occasions to a game as well. They’re all so excited about a weekend away with Dad and I’m excited to have one less person to feed all weekend. haha!
I think that wraps up my FAVORITES! Hope you have a great weekend! XO
