Happy Friday, friends!!!
Quick PSA - if you're linking up with us PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAASEEEE make sure that it's an actual Friday Favorites post. Like where you talk about Favorite things, moments, etc. Last week there were several super random links submitted (like to posts from months ago that were about really random stuff) that I had to remove. Also, please link to me, Erika, or Narci and grab our graphic below. It's super easy... just cut and paste the code and voila! :)
On Tuesday night Griffin put on her FAVORITE "Happy Pants" and we headed to dinner with Dave's parents, grandmas and his younger brother and his girlfriend to celebrate their birthdays.
Uncle Stephen didn't want to sit on the saddle to celebrate - but isn't that what nephews are for? :)
After dinner we did what we always do when we're with Uncle Stephen.... try on his helmet and sit on his motorcycle :)
And Griffin party danced with her Gram. Yes - she's learned from the best,,, her big brother has some MOVES!!!
Mason's FAVORITE activity this week has been art. All he wants to do is color with markers and paint! Rather than try to keep his creativity on small sheets of paper - we've resorted to covering the entire table and letting him have at it.
One of my FAVORITE sites, Zulily, has some AWESOME deals on right now! I picked up this fun sand digger and spiderman cape (with an M for Mason!) to tuck away for Christmas. Because I'm a planner like that.
Plus my FAVORITE brand of personalized plates goes live on their site this morning!!! (9 a.m. CST). How cute are these Halloween plates?!?!?! LOVE!

This particular group of women can often be found at the back of my local bakery. Eating pastries and sipping tea. Chatting and giggling like they own the place. And when they happen to be here at the same time that I am, it kinda lights up my morning. Today, they made a remark about my boys, so I seized the opportunity to inquire about their gathering. Then one of the ladies welcomed my asking with the sweetest smile and said, "Well, we have been meeting up like this, once a week, for 33 years. we have known each other for so long that we all walk, talk and dress alike now. We are more than friends, we are family. We have been through it all together. So, sweetheart, I guess you could say this is a cherished age-old Sisterhood"
I immediately screenshotted it and texted it out to MY sisterhood :) This may have been my FAVORITE IG post all week. Please note that several of the ladies are wearing puffer vests and one has on a twill anorak. LOVE!
One of my FAVORITE things to do in my classroom is to incorporate funny pics of my kids into my lessons and such. Yesterday, all of my classes were taking tests so I thought this was only fitting...
Sidenote: if you missed me Teacher Tuesday post, you can find it HERE along with links to some other fun things I do in my classroom.
Dave's mom gave us this picture of Dave on Tuesday night and I IMMEDIATELY knew it reminded me of my FAVORITE six-year old :) I mean...
This weekend is going to be full of some of my other FAVORITES.... quality time with my family, actually putting away laundry (woo hoo!!!) and (fingers crossed!) catching up on some sleep. hahaha
I hope your weekends are filled with your favorites as well!!! See y'all on Monday!
