Hey, friends! I have exciting news for you.... Erika, Narci and I are starting a new link-up on Fridays.
"Friday Favorites" is the time to share your favorites from the week. Favorite moment, favorite new shirt, favorite thing one of your kids said, favorite new pens, etc! It could be one or it could be 10! Totally up to you!!! Just grab the code from the button below and paste it into your Friday Favorites post, link to the three of us and then link up! I'm starting today - but the linkup will start next Friday!
To kick us off, I'm going to be sharing several favorites :)
1) This Kid. And the things he says.
Seriously. When did he turn 11?!?!?! hahaha
Despite starting to look OH SO BIG, he reminds me daily that he's still little. Especially when he says things like this...
"Lasterday" = yesterday
"This day" = today
"Nexterday" = tomorrow
For example, "Mommy... are we going to the museum this day or nexterday?" :)
2) Southern Hot Tot
I met Jordan from Southern Hot Tot last year and she is the sweetest! She dropped off a bag of goodies for me and Griffin and I was so excited!!!
This pair reminded me A LOT of my Serenity Stone drops from Stella and Dot and I think I'll be wearing these A LOT this fall with my chunky scarves and boots.
She also sent over some adorable goodies for Griffin. The little girls jewelry is precious and CRAZY inexpensive.... think $3 range! SERIOUSLY!!!
I think that I'm going to stock up on the hair clips and little necklace/bracelet sets to use "bling" when I wrap up little girls presents. How fun would that be?!?!
They have these two dresses in right now for $21 (left) and $19 (right).
I'm considering throwing a rainbow party for Griffin JUST so she could wear the dress on the right :) And I think the dress on the left would be PRECIOUS with a little pair of cowboy boots or gladiator sandals.
There is a lining to the skirt... but I forgot to pull it down - so no worries if you decide to order :)
She would NOT keep the bracelets on, but they entertained her on her ankles for a solid 3 minutes :)
I think everything looks better with a jean jacket (duh!) and look at how previous it will be as a top with some ruffle pants in the Fall. The bodice is super stretchy so I have no doubt it will still fit her when cooler weather comes around.
3) Sweet T Boutique
Tessa from Sweet T is SUPER creative and fun. She sent me a surprise package in the mail this week and it absolutely made my day!
I attempted to take a few pictures of Griffin in the super sparkly bows... but she's been teething and was NOT being cooperative. Shocker, I know. I'm sure you'll be seeing LOTS of these on my IG :)
Tessa also threw in a few headbands for me as well - which was PERFECT considering that I've had pool hair for the last week and a half. hahaha
I snapped these all on the same day - I promise I wasn't wearing the same neon pullover three days in a row... although I will totally admit to doing that on other occasions :) Tessa takes custom orders and is FANTASTIC to work with - be sure to check her out!
4) Back to Work!
Spending all day in Math department meetings isn't necessarily my favorite thing in the world, BUT I did get my favorite hot tea and I'm starting to get excited about my FAVORITE part of the school year - the beginning! I love meeting my new students and seeing how much my students from last year grew up over the summer. I love the excitement, anticipation and hwo organized I am at the beginning of the school year.
Working yesterday and today also makes me REALLY appreciate the last little bit of summer that's left. I have next week off with my kiddos - then I'm off to a WEEK of Pre-AP training EVERY SINGLE DAY in Dallas (like... 9 - 5... boo!) and then I have one more week and then it's in-service time! I'm planning on savoring each and every day I have left at home with my sweets!
5) Speaking of Sweets
Speaking of sweets... I got to sneak home for about 10 minutes today during my lunch break... just enough time to grab some snuggles, a sandwich and a Starbucks on my way back for vertical alignment and Biblical Integration meetings.
6) Finding Selfies
I find random selfies that my boys have taken on my phone all. the. time. and it makes me smile like no other. I accidentally deleted instead of email a bunch of Luke's - but his are always great!
7) HM Willow Bracelet Winner
I'm still giddy that Ariele from Hippie Chick gave me an HM Willow bracelet to give to one of y'all!!! I'm already excited about the next shipment she has coming in :) I wish you all could win one!!! But a big congratulations to...........
Shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll get your bracelet out to you tomorrow!
I hope y'all have a FABULOUS weekend and I can't wait for all of you to link up for Friday Favorites next week!!!
