Happy Friday, Friends! I can't wait to check out all your favorites again this weekend! These posts are seriously my fave!!!
Don't forget, if you link up with us, grab our graphic below and then link up with either me, Erika or Narci (or all of us!).
Before I can even begin with my post, I have to talk about the weather. Because apparently I am an old lady and cool temps are my FAVORITE. :) It is FINALLY cooling off here and I am PUMPED!!! I can totally deal with 80 degrees in the afternoon when it's 55 in the morning. Amen.
One of my FAVORITE things to do is host my girlfriends at my house. Tuesday night everyone headed to my place in their comfy clothes and we proceeded to girl talk it up. ;)
It was a CRAZY day at school (late conference, etc.) and so I made sure everything was super simple.
I made the mini pumpkin cream pies the night before (find the recipe on my post HERE).
The salad I threw together when I got home from school (seriously y'all... it was after 5:00 and girls came at 6:00.... this was super easy). It was spring mix, a sliced Granny Smith apple, pistachios, sliced grapes and blue cheese with a balsamic dressing. YUM!
The soup is my VERY FAVORITE soup! And it's so so so easy!
The pumpkin cream pies are apparently Mason's FAVORITE too... he had a serious "moment" with one on Wednesday night. ;)
One of my very FAVORITE moments from the week was Monday night when Mason's Benadryl kicked in and he literally PASSED OUT in my arms at Dave's dad's birthday dinner. The day was long and crazy and all my makeup was gone at this point - but I still asked Dave to take a pic of me with my sweet, sleeping boy.
While Mason was sleeping, GG was being GG... pulling her FAVORITE things (including sunnies and toothbrush) out of her purse to play with.
Mason woke up in time to eat some macaroni and sing Happy Birthday to Papa Mac.
This picture of Dave's Grandma is my FAVORITE! Minnie Fae Griffin is almost 93 and she hangs with us just fine ;)
Wednesday afternoon I got school pictures from my FAVORITE kindergartener ;) I DIED laughing because we had practiced smiling for days before this picture and when I picked him up from school that afternoon and asked him how his smile went he told that the photographer told him not to smile, but to open his mouth. hahaha #classic
Y'all were so sweet about my Halloween decor post yesterday and it was obvious that your FAVORITE part were the bats ;) Me too. hahaha
To answer a couple of the common questions....
1) Yes - I cut them out by hand. I don't have a cricut (but apparently I should!) and it only took me about an hour to do all of them.
2) I got the template HERE. I sized it down to I think 75% and then 50%, then I traced the pattern onto folded cardstock and cut, cut, cut.
Have a great weekend, friends!!! I hope you get to spend it with some of your FAVORITE people! ;)
