Friday Favorites - Pen and Paint Edition

On Wednesday afternoon Mason came home with what might be his FAVORITE craft ever!


Look at that sweet little Eagle Run :)




A couple of weeks ago, Lindsay from Pen and Paint sent me a few prints for my classroom.  She saw my classroom tour and thought they'd fit in perfectly and she was so right!

Look how cute they look next to Mason's jack-o-lanterns he's been drawing me every day :)




The next one is my FAVORITE!  Such a great reminder for all of us...



A parent brought by all these tissue paper flowers she was done with because she thought I might like them (duh!) and check out how cute they look!




There were pink ones as well, so at the suggestion of a sweet student, I stuck them on my IG door :)

 

I've talked about my love/hate relationship with the Facebook thing that pulls up pictures from "this day in the past" and yesterday's was no exception.  LOOK HOW LITTLE my FAVORITE little girl was!!!


While scrolling through Instagram yesterday I saw this picture of Caroline Stanbury (Bravo's Ladies of London) and I SWORE she was hugging Sheaffer!  I know that Ladies of London is one of Shay's FAVORITES as well so I immediately texted her and she had thought the same thing when she saw it! hahaha


Leaves on the ground are our FAVORITE!


And I'm not sure whether this news is my FAVORITE or not.  Thoughts???



Something that definitely is my FAVORITE is this girly in blue :)



I looooooove girly girl pink, but blue is so pretty on her!


When we get to school in the mornings, Mason loves to draw in my classroom wince we're usually there early.  He's switched from drawing jack-o-lanterns to treasure maps :)  His little pictures are my FAVORITE!


Griffin's FAVORITE thing to play right now is kitties :)  She makes food for her kitty and feeds her and it's the absolute sweetest.




Nordstrom is having a FANTASTIC sale right now and here are a few of my FAVORITE picks :)

 I posted this on IG this week and it's rung true with me all week.  Definitely a FAVORITE reminder.

This weekend we're looking forward to one of my FAVORITE things... family pictures with Kelly!!!  She always manages to get our chaos to look calm and she captures all of their little personalities beautifully.


This was us last year ;)  This year I'm hoping that Griffin will let me put her down. hahaha

I hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend planned with lots of relaxation and time with family.  

Happy Friday, Friends!!!

  5. I mean...every time I saw that pic in my IG scroll last night, I thought it was Sheaffer. So funny that we thought the same thing...about that and the lady with the gloves ;). Happy Friday!

  6. Im not sure how i feel about gwen and blake either!!! I love them both but together?

  7. I don't think Blake and Gwen's relationship is serious! To me it's just a fling since they both conveniently got divorced around the same time. I'm sure after this season of The Voice wraps up they'll break up!

  8. I do not feel good about Blake and Gwen. I'm still heartbroken that she and Gavin are no longer together!

  9. It is crazy how fast the little ones grow right before our eyes! Enjoy your weekend with them!!:)

    I am still torn on how I feel about Blake and Gwen... I guess I am looking at it like its a fling and nothing serious ;)

  10. Your pictures are going to be fabulous!! I have a feeling G will be the star of the show this year!

  11. I know this is irrational, but I'm bummed about the Blake/Gwen news....it seems shady. Like maybe it's been going on a while. Makes you wonder if that's what contributed to the divorces? ugh. Go Team Miranda.

  15. I love how you style your family for pictures. I've given up on ours, with my kids getting older, 24,23,17,&15 it's near impossible.

  24. I'm not sure about the whole Blake and Gwen thing... I love them both SO MUCH, but they are just so different I just don't see them jiving together, ya know?

    Have a happy weekend!

  25. Shelfani...I don't know. I like them both, but they seem so different! Maybe that's what will make it work for them. & BTW, I love your style & positive attitude!��

  26. Such a cute family pic! I'm not sure how I feel about the whole Blake and Gwen thing either. I have always been a huge fan of Blake and I like Gwen but it just seems too soon....I still haven't gotten over the Blake and Miranda split, I don't see how he has!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Gwen and Blake together no, just no. Poor Miranda. I couldn't imagine my ex husband (if I had one) moving on that fast and doing it so publicly! Yikes.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Whoa, didn't know about Blake & Gwen....not sure how I feel about that!
    Have so much fun doing family photos this weekend! Can't wait to see them!
