Friday Favorites - Boys Trees Edition ;)

Happy Friday, Friends!  As usual Erika, Narci and I are linking up and sharing our Friday Favorites!  I'd love it if you'd grab our graphic, link up and share yours as well ;)


First up on my list are the boys Christmas trees in their room :)  I shared our upstairs Christmas decor earlier this week and there were a few too many pairs of dirty socks and underwear laying around (that I had no intention of picking up when I was taking pictures of the rest of upstairs) but since the weekend they've picked up their rooms and run the vacuum through and so it's time to share!



The trees in both boys rooms used to go on our entryway buffet table and they're the perfect little size for them to have and do their thing with.


I put the ribbon on, bought the pom pom picks (60% off and so cute!) and left the rest up to them.



Luke's tree is full of Quixels, Lego guys and Star Wars paraphernalia.  It's perfect.  It's even plugged into the wall with a giant orange extension cord because #classy ;) 


Mason's tree is equally cute!  It has lots of personality for sure.  The decor changes daily and typically includes art and random objects :)






The other little addition upstairs are these sweet monogram wreaths I picked up for the kids doors.  I think they are so festive and fun and the kids were so excited to help me put them up!


I added the ribbon and am tickled at how cute they are!


Buddy is back and his little antics are our FAVORITE!  This week he brought Christmas Tree Cakes (a super special treat!) among other antics.


Y'all.  Griffin is officially SO FLIPPING BIG!!!  She had her evaluation at MCA this week and it was her FAVORITE 30 minutes of the week :)


The admissions director sent me a few pictures (perks of being on staff! hahaha) and I can't get over how sweet she looks!!!





She passed with flying colors and is officially an MCA Mustang!  I'm not sure how we got here (wasn't I JUST A newlywed first-year teacher?!?!), but I am so so so excited!




Twinkle lights at night are my FAVORITE!


On Wednesday night Mason came down for basketball practice wearing a hat and mittens.  He INSISTED on wearing them and I felt like he looked like a trainwreck.  When we got there look at what his little bestie was wearing!!!  And no... they didn't plan it.  Two sweet little peas in a pod!


FAVORITES!!!


And while we're on the topic of those sweet boys how cute is this picture from his bday party?!?! 


I picked up this clip for Griffin the other day and I'm IN LOVE!!!  Isn't it sweet?!?!  IT's a new FAVORITE for sure.


I'm in the final countdown to Christmas break and I'm crossing tons of stuff off my to-do-list!  FAVORITE!!!  And yes... the last few days of school before break requires caffeine and chocolate.


I picked up these plates and bowls on sale and they are PRECIOUS!!! We didn't have Christmas plates (shocking, I know) ;) and we're excited to use these for years to come.


Last, one of my FAVORITE parts of the day is Mason's pre-dinner prayers.  Y'all.  They're seriously the sweetest.  I took this video of him the other night and have watched it about 40 times ;)


Happy (almost) weekend, friends!!!  Our weekend is going to be PACKED... dance, two basketball games, craft camp for GG, the boys are in a parade AND I'm going to be hanging out with Amy and Harmony from Evys Tree at the Starbucks at Highland Village Sunday night from 6 - 7!  They're going to be passing out gift cards and it's going to be a fun time!  I would LOVE to get to meet lots of y'all there!!!

  6. So cute! I love doing little tiny trees in the kids' rooms too! Random question, where did you get the navy rug in Luke's room? We have a solid navy rug in Griffin's room from Rugs USA, but it pills really badly and is very hard to vacuum and keep looking neat.

  14. This teacher is on the struggle bus this year... and I love your art work in your plan book. So I spent some of my prep period decorating mine with a string of lights. Now I'm no artist, so it looks nothing like yours, but it made me smile. Love all of your fun touches and creativity with everything!
