Erika, Narci and I are sharing our Friday Favorites and I can't wait to see what everyone is loving this week!
First up on my list of favorites are these pictures that I snapped of Griffin on Monday night.
And since I'm talking about cute baby girls, how cute is sweet Millie?!?! Snuggling babies and girls nights are two of my FAVORITES... so snuggling a baby at a girls night was the ultimate.
On Tuesday Mason and Griffin had dentist appointments. The dentist is one of Mason's FAVORITE places (seriously!!!), but it was Griffin's first time and she was a little unsure.
We have the sweetest hygienist EVER and she invited Griffin over to watch Mason get his cleaning. She stood there so sweetly and held his hand. I almost cried.
Then Miss Pauline let them ride the chair up and down together a few times.
Mason picked vampire teeth as his prize and he was so excited to scare the dentist with them :)
I was so proud of GG! She didn't get a cleaning this time, but she let him count her teeth and she was so stinkin' cute!
I mean! The next appointment she'll get a cleaning, and she is already talking about picking out more bracelets from the treasure box (check out her right arm. hahaha).
Luke fell asleep in the car one day after school and seeing his sweet little face back there was my FAVORITE.
Griffin's FAVORITE toys right now are her Sofia princess shoes, tiara and wand. She rocks them with her brothers old t-shirts and rolled up sweats :)
After proctoring standardizing testing this week I was walking back to my room and got to see my FAVORITE Pre-K'er! He was covered head to toe in chalk paint ;)
This is my FAVORITE. All the teachers say amen!
This week I wore one of my FAVORITE dresses! It's from Anthropologie last Spring and every time I wear it I like it more. hahaha
Look how fun the print is!!!
And since we're talking about fun shoes, these two-toned TOMs wedges are so cute!
(I can't find them online anywhere, but I grabbed them on Zulily a while ago... hopefully they'll turn up there again!)
There were some terrible storms here on Tuesday night - and while I was glued to the screen watching the radar - I couldn't help but laugh at what might just be the WORST infographic/graph EVER! I teach misleading graphs to my 7th and 8th graders and this one is going on the lesson plan for sure! I mean!!!
If you've read here for a while you know that Luke has always said "love you to Maine and back" instead of to the moon and I almost teared up when this banner from Sass and Crafts arrived yesterday. I can't WAIT to hang it up in the kids playroom! I have no plans for that space other than this banner. hahaha
Speaking of plans for the new house, we stopped in at Weirs this week to pick out some furniture and I think I may be more confused than ever. My plan was to order a few things now so they'd be ready for delivery pretty soon after we move in but now I'm more confused than ever. hahaha
Y'all offered some AMAZING moving advice yesterday, so I'm hoping that you'll be able to help me with some design/furniture questions today.
So, here are a couple of pictures of the new house (my plan wasn't to share these yet... but I have thought and overthought and overthought some more... so I'm just doing it. hahaha) The kitchen, family room and eat-in area are like one big space, so I want it to feel cohesive, but not matchy matchy.
This is looking into the family room area...
,,, another view (the kitchen is on the right side of this picture and the red room is the dining room)...
... one more where you can kind of see the kitchen.
.... and then part of the kitchen looking into the eat-in area.
So here are my questions and thoughts....
At some point I want to have the cabinets painted white like my current kitchen cabinets... so keep that in mind. I'm also thinking about having the island painted and distressed black.
Here's the sectional that's at the top of my list, except it won't have blue pillows, they'll be in the fabrics that are draped over the pillows.
I have a dark brown coffee table and sofa table picked out, but am considering a black TV console (we're going to put the TV where the yellow piece of furniture is in the pics)... which could work if I went with a black table with brown top.
I'm going to have the kitchen area painted a color like this...
(the eat-in area and then the actual kitchen all the way to the wall that has the dining room door... everything that's the orangey color)
So... kitchen table. Something like the one below??? Black??? I'm afraid that the white on the table won't be the same as the cabinets and then it will look weird. What if I did the island distressed black and did a black table and chairs with a circular jute rug underneath???
This is the same table as above, but with a black base and brown wood top. Better than the white??? I kind of feel like mixing the brown and black on the table would make it okay for me to mix the brown and black pieces in the family room, right?
Design-y people I need your help!!! This kind of thing is typically my FAVORITE, but I think I've totally overthought everything! My brain is currently as scattered as this portion of the post. HELP!
Last but most definitely not least... WINNERS!!!

Thank you so much for reading and HAPPY FRIDAY, friends!
