Today is a total two-fer :) Favorite things party AND a weekend recap. BAM!
I mentioned my favorite thing on Friday, but it's worth mentioning again since it's AWESOME :)
This polish is sparkly and shimmery without being "too much". The color is fun for Fall and PERFECT for Halloween week.
Toms are another one of my favorites things and they're back on HauteLook today!!!
The sale starts at 8 AM PST - but I'm crossing my fingers for wedge booties and I am loving that pair on the far left for Dave! AND it's free shipping (your whole order!) when you buy a pair of TOMS! SCORE!!! Last time they ran this sale I had my shoes the same week as well! Click HERE to set up an account so you're ready to go when the sale starts :)
Now on to the recap!
Friday morning Dave and the littles brought me a tea and Dave snapped this pic of G on their way out. Only 10 short years until she has her own middle school locker.
Cue the ugly crying ;)
After school Luke and I ran by Target. He spent a SOLID 20 minutes looking through the toy aisles and taking pics of things he wanted to add to his Christmas list.
These sheets were on sale, so we picked up a set for Griffin. No.... she's not in a twin bed YET... but I think it's coming sooner than I'd like... and if she has to grow up at least she can do it on cute flannel sheets ;) hahaha
Friday night my mom stopped by and we were marveling at how long GG's hair looks when it's wet. This time last year she was pretty much bald! It makes me wonder how long it's going to be this time next year!
Saturday morning Luke had an 8 am soccer game and I had a volunteer shift at Pumpkinville, so the littles and I grabbed donuts (and caffeine for mama!) and headed to run the register.
Dave and Luke came after the game and they played for an hour or so while I worked. Griffin (and Luke in the background) LOVED the corn pit ;)
The rest of Saturday we spent playing with kinetic sand, putting away laundry and just hanging out.
Saturday night Luke fell asleep in our bed and when I laid down next to him I immediately had a flashback to the first morning we had him at home after he was born. SIGH.
This outfit KILLS me!!!
Shay and I have taught three-year old Sunday school together for years and years.
We've had lots of friends kids in our class and Smith was in our class last year. This year Mason is in our class and I'm still not sure how I feel about it :) hahaha
When we walked into the room yesterday he was sitting at a table full of little girls.... and loving it.
It's fun to see him playing and interacting with other kids... this boy is going to ROCK Pre-K next school year!
Sunday afternoon we napped and were generally pretty unproductive. I had TONS to do, but Dave declared it a "mental health day" and we took a few hours "off" :)
Later in the afternoon we got the kids in their costumes to meet some friends from our Sunday School class at a local nursing home for a "costume parade". GG was looking FABULOUS in her peacock costume!
I found the costume at a consignment store for under $10. RIDICULOUS!!!
I think it's a little big for her, and I was going to put it away for next year, but it was warm today and I didn't want to put her back into the fleece owl costume so we made it work.
We took our kids to this assisted living center in the Summer and this time we invited friends to come along.
The kids colored Halloween pictures before hand and handed them out to the residents and then there was an impromptu Jesus Loves Me/Twinkle Twinkle/ABC song sing-a-long :)
My kids are NOT shy in the least, and this kind of service opportunity really suits them well. They love to hug on and talk with the residents.
After the assisted living center several of us headed to dinner where the kids were pretty much nutso and the grown ups enjoyed some yummy Mexican food. Win Win.
This little kitty cat was looking oh-so-cute :)
Girl talk ;)
Speaking of that cute little kitty, TODAY IS THE VERY LAST DAY to order a shirt and support her sweet mama!!!
They're only $15 and 100% of the proceeds go STRAIGHT to Manda and her family.
Click HERE to order!!!
I hope y'all have a super fun and festive week planned!!! We have plans for dinner with friends, pumpkin carving, Jack-O-Lantern pizza and some other surprises up our sleeves and we can't wait!
