It's FRIDAY! YAY!!! This week has F.L.O.W.N by!
I'm excited to share some of my favorite moments, products and pictures from this crazy fast week!
If you want to link up and share your Friday Favorites, grab our graphic below, link up with me, Erika and/or Narci and share your Favorites!
FAVORITE FALL NAILS
It's too hot to break out my boots and heavy scarves - BUT it's never too hot for Fall nails :) I REALLY like Essie's Bahama Mama and I finally bit the bullet and tried the Seche VITE top coat and it's awesome! My nails have never looked shinier! :)
MY BOYS FAVORITE MOMENT
By far - my boys favorite moment of the week was when we pulled up to a stoplight after school and looked out our window to see THIS!!!!!
They begged me to take pictures and have asked me to look at them at least three times a day, every day. hahaha
OUR NEW FAVORITE SPORT
Luke started soccer last week and he has his first game this Saturday. Dave is coaching (more on that later. hahaha) and we're PUMPED to cheer on the Lil' Stangs this season!
NEW FAVORITE GRADING PEN
If you're a teacher you'll be able to relate to this. Non-teachers... probably not. :)
This neon Sharpie is AWESOME! I'm not sure why I love it so much... but I do. So there.
Get you some.
FAVORITE MAXI DRESS
I wore THIS Hippie Chick Maxi dress (and bangles!) yesterday and got so many compliments. The pattern and colors are really fun - but I'll be able to throw on a denim jacket and navy scarf and be ready for Fall!
One of the BEST parts of Dave's job is that he can bring me salads for lunch :) This has been my salad of choice this week. The grapes make it!
NEW FAVORITE SHIRT
My new favorite shirt came in this week! It's current Matilda Jane and it's GORGEOUS!!! It's flowy (but not too flowy) and the colors are AMAZING! I want to wear it every day. If you want one I'll be opening up another show mid-September so keep your eyes open for the deets!
MY FAVORITE ARTIST
Luke has been on a "treasure map" making ROLL! He draws them at school, after school care and at home. There is always a big long story that goes along with it and he always crumples them up because "all good maps are wrinkly, mom!"
(MAYBE) MY FAVORITE PARTY OF THE YEAR
Tuesday night the girls from Bible Study got together for our Third Annual Scarf Exchange :)
It is seriously my favorite night. Girlfriends, Starbucks and SCARVES!!!
The tradition started three years ago and it's a great one. We all meet at Starbucks with a wrapped scarf. We draw numbers (1-10 since there were 10 of us) and the person who has number 1 gets to pick a bag. They open it, show it off and then person 2 can either steal it or open a new one. Scarves can be stolen twice and then they're "frozen" and at the very end person 1 gets to either keep what they have or do one final swap for one that's not frozen. This year there was LOTS of stealing and sass which made it super fun.
At our first scarf exchange, only Shay knew I was pregnant (I think I had found out the day before) and so I wrote on a newborn onesie "Coming April 2013" and stuck it in my scarf bag. I don't remember who opened it, but I do remember the finger pointing that went around the table and the vehement denials all my friends gave. Keep in mind that I had been VERY VOCAL about being done after Luke and Mason so when the process of elimination pointed to me all I could do was turn beet red and cry. hahaha :) Last year I brought 4 month old GG with me to the exchange... so you can see why it holds a special place in my heart.
(Sidenote - I surprised the same group of girlfriends with the news of Griffin's "second gender reveal" at Shay's Christmas recipe exchange. NONE of them knew, I waited at least an hour into the party to casually drop the news and it was epic. But that's a story for another day)
Have a fabulous Friday and a great weekend!!!
