Weekend Recap - Wiped Out Edition :)

Happy Monday, friends!  This weekend was so much fun and has left us WIPED!  

Friday was the culmination of Noah's Ark Week and the Pre-K kids all had to come dressed as an animal.  Griffin wasn't about to turn down a chance to ditch her polo and plaid for an extra large helping of pink so she went as a flamingo :)

Spooky Snack Mix

This weekend we whipped up some festive little snack bags to stock our snack basket for the next couple of weeks and turned it into a fun activity so I thought I'd share!

Weekend on a Wednesday

We had such a fun weekend that I couldn't NOT share - so today I'm sharing our Weekend on a Wednesday :) 

Griffin has been ALL ABOUT sunglasses recently and Friday she was rocking her brothers aviators.

Show and Tell Tuesday - Day in the Life

Happy Tuesday, friends!  Today is one of my FAVORITES - Day in the Life!  I LOVE getting a peek into other people's days... working moms, stay-at-home moms, empty nesters, college students, etc.  Seeing how similar/different people's days are from my own and getting to see other people's routines is so interesting to me.

So here we go!  I actually took pictures of a random Thursday a few weeks ago because I was going to use the post earlier when I remembered that I had this Show and Tell day on the calendar.  I had already taken all the pictures so I'm running with it. ;)

I've mentioned multiple times that I am NOT a morning person.  I wish I was, but I just can't make it happen. I tend to sleep in as late as I possibly can and am a habitual snooze-button-hitter.  I joke that it's a good thing that I married Dave (who IS a morning person) because he's the only alarm clock that can actually get me out of bed - and most of the time that involves him throwing off all the covers, pretty much pushing me out of bed and reminding me that I have a job I have to get to :)

Sweet and Spooky with Boden

Today I am so excited to share some of our favorite sweet and spooky things with y'all!  First up is Mini Boden Halloween!   It's no secret that I love a festive outfit so when Boden reached out and asked if I wanted to share some outfits including their new Halloween shirts I was THRILLED!!!  We've been huge Boden fans for YEARS as their clothes are so cute, incredibly comfortable and GREAT quality.

Friday Favorites - Short and Sweet

Happy Friday, friends!  Today's post is going to be short and sweet because I am SWAMPED at school this week and really haven't done a whole lot other than grade, answer emails and lesson plan.  The end.

Mason brought home some super sweet art this week and his happy and sweet little view of the world is my FAVORITE.

Brown Butter Toffee Cookies

I've had this recipe bookmarked mainly because chocolate chip cookies and Heath bars are two of my favorite things - so a cookie combining the two of them had my mouth watering.  I'm actually surprised I resisted making them this long :)  I had never made brown butter before either, but it was surprisingly easy and gave the cookies some amazing flavor!

Favorite Picture Books

I talked about  Luke's reading list back in the summer and had a HUGE response with great recommendations for early/middle elementary readers.  I thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite children's books today so you can jot down some titles for your own kids' collection or make a few selections to put away as birthday party gifts or even shop ahead for Christmas!

I am a SUCKER for books.  S.U.C.K.E.R.  My parents read to us all the time growing up and I love fostering that in my own kids as well.  We frequent the library multiple times a month and we've found lots of our favorites through the library, but we also like to have our own copies of some of our very favorites to have on hand.  Our top-reading pile is ever-changing, but here's what is currently on repeat in our house...

This book CRACKS my kids up because my parents have some pretty pesky squirrels at their lake house (including one that we SWORE was going to attack my dad) and they laugh so hard every time we read it thinking about this scenario unfolding there :)  There are several other "Those Darn Squirrels" books that we've checked out from the library before and they're so so so cute!

Halloween/Fall Decor

It's FIIIINALLY October and despite saying that I really wasn't going to put out decorations this year the mood hit this past weekend and the kids and I got everything out and ready!

Weekend Recap - Fair Day Edition

Happy Monday, friends!  Friday was our "Fair Day" and even though we woke up to drizzles we were bound and determined to head to The Arboretum to see the pumpkins.  On the way there the rain started getting bad and the traffic was worse and when we pulled into the parking lot it was coming down SUPER hard so we had a quick change of plans and headed to the Perot instead.

Friday Favorites - Adulting Edition

Happy Friday, friends!!!  It's extra happy around here because there's NO SCHOOL TODAY!!!  It's our "fair day" and while we aren't headed to the fair (we're going to head there in a couple of weeks) we're headed to the Dallas Arboretum to check out the pumpkins, picnic and play in the Children's Garden. 

Erika, Narci and I are all sharing our FAVORITES this week and we'd love for you to join us!  
This girl and her love of accessories is my FAVORITE.  She can only wear them for about 10 minutes in the morning on her way to school and then class - but she makes the most of it!
