Friday Favorites - Moon Pie Design Edition

Happy Friday, Friends!!!

I can't wait to peruse the links this week.... PLEASE make sure that you link back to one (or all) of us, grab our graphic and blog about your FAVORITES this week!

It's FA-REEZING here in McKinney and I am LOVING every second of it.  It's totally my FAVORITE kind of weather.  Bundled, cozy, snuggly, etc. :)

First up on my list of faves, is Moon Pie Design.  She made this shirt for Griffin and I ADORE it!!!  It's a nerdy little owl and the fabrics she picked are absolute Fall perfection!!!  It's my new FAVORITE shirt in her closet :)



 Another favorite???? The piggies :)  They're more of a necessity, rather than a fashion statement - since her hair is CONSTANTLY in her eyes and she refuses to wear clippies.


The cnevron and polka dot fabrics are metallic gold - SWOON!!!


If you're looking for something extra special and cute for the upcoming holidays, be sure to check out her adorable work!

Speaking of upcoming holidays...

How AWESOME is this monogrammed, burlap tree skirt?!?!?!  It's also from Moon Pie Design and she's graciously offered to give one of y'all a custom burlap tree skirt!

I'll pick the winner and announce next Thursday!!!


My next FAVORITE has been seeing all the #mandastrong pics on Instagram this week!
The shirt sale is open for about another week, so if you haven't snagged your shirt to support Manda and her family yet, be sure to check out her booster page to place your order!


 One of my very FAVORITE people EVER is about to bring her daughter home and our group of girls couldn't let the occasion pass without showering Miss Ashby with some love (and adorable presents!)  If you know me at all, you know my heart is in the details and working on some fun little "projects" for the evening was one of my FAVORITE moments of the week.



If ANY child needs a black moto jacket, it's Shay Shull's child :)  And of course Ashby and Kensington needed matching Ruby Wraps.  Because duh.  #wedontdosubtle 

One of my FAVORITE times of the day is after the "after school rush" when we all settle in and watch Sofia The First for 20 mins.  Picking everyone up from various locations, getting everyone in, changed and settled can be chaotic, and I TREASURE these few sweet moments with my snuggle bugs (PS - Luke was building Legos instead of snuggling on this day... two out of three ain't bad!) hahaha

Since it's been super cold in the mornings, I've been getting my "Happy Morning" pictures from the hall instead of outside.  This is always my FAVORITE text message of the day and the new FAVORITE spot for pics is cracking me up :)




Luke brings home A LOT of papers every day, but this one was my FAVORITE by far this week...

He wears a uniform to school and can pick from a red polo shirt, white polo shirt or blue/white striped oxford.  The oxfords are my favorite and so that's what I lay out for him.  They're not his favorite (they're required on chapel days) and when I pulled this out of his folder and asked him about it he proceeded to tell me that it was a chart detailing the shirts everyone in his class had worn that day... please note that he was the only oxford. hahaha.  He's worn polos the rest of the week :)  

 I posted a video of Mason and GG singing their ABCs on Instagram earlier this week, and several people commented about the toy all of my kids were playing with.  It's a FAVORITE at our house and you can find it HERE. We've had it for years and LOVE it!

Last, but not least, I've been satisfying my "Christmas" urges with pulling out Griffin's Christmas outfits.  So far this has kept me from pulling all the decor down out of the attic, but I'm not sure how long it's going to hold me off :)  
FOR THOSE WHO ASKED.... YOU CAN FIND THE ALL IS BRIGHT SHIRT HERE!!!

This weekend is Dave's "Manager on Duty" weekend, which means I'll be flying SOLO all weekend long.  Honestly, this isn't my FAVORITE thing (hahaha), but I'm looking forward to some craft projects and activities I have planned for the kids and for the tortellini soup I have planned for me :)

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

  55. I keep saying that one of these days I am going to join in on this fun link-up but I just haven't found the time to yet. I work full-time just like you but I am on the computer all day. LOL I saved that toy to my wishlist. I've already bought most of my kid's Christmas stuff this week but this may have to be our game present this year. I always try to buy at least one family game and this would be fun to do together. Thanks for sharing and love that your hubby always texts you. I should really start doing that for my hubby since he leaves for work before the kids get up. He would really enjoy it though. Good luck on flying solo. I totally get that. My hubby is hunting this Saturday and I will likely be solo that day too.

Ahh! :)
