Friday Favorites: Super Fun Edition

It's Friday!!!  I'm pumped!!! WOO HOO!!!

Erika, Narci and I are sharing our Friday Favorites again this week and you should too!  Grab the graphic below, link back to one (or all) of us and share your Friday Favorites!!!

First up on my list of favorites are my awesome coworkers :)  They're some of my very FAVORITE people.  I've said it before that if I didn't LOVE what I did, there is no way I'd leave my babies every day - and these AMAZING teachers are inspiring in so many ways.  We hang out in the bathroom between classes, drink too many Sonic drinks and get into some mischief while our Principal is gone. 

Our fearless leader has been out this week, so we've been sending him pictures every day of us "on our best behavior". 

Monday we sent him pics of all of us asleep in our classrooms and then Tuesday we took the golf cart from the trainers and headed out to the baseball field (our principal is also the varsity coach), to do some work on the field (that's like his baby)

I look super out of place. hahaha  And then our school police officer pulled us over :)

We also snapped this pic on the playground :)  There are a handful of other teachers who couldn't join us for pics - but trust me - we have the best staff meetings on campus :)

Griffin's new FAVORITE activity is feeding Jack Bauer.  Even if it's not time. 
And even if no one is watching her.  It's kind of a problem. hahaha

Sweet girl is INDEPENDENT and she has no problem pulling the chair over herself, climbing up herself and attempting to get the food herself.  Lord, help me.

At least she had some great Charlie's Angels hair while doing it :)

Look at sweet Jack Bauer waiting patiently for her to finish.  Note how many pieces of food are in each of her "scoops". :)

And since we're talking about her hair... it's growing like crazy and is kind of my FAVORITE. :)

Next up, my very FAVORITE clothing brand, Matilda Jane, is releasing theier Spring Collection (Hello, Lovely!) this weekend and I'm hosting a trunk show at my house!!!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting to show people the clothes in person (vs just looking at them online) and play dress-up with our girls :)  

I haven't seen it in person yet, but I'm LOVING the sneak peeks!!!  Everything is so girly and appropriate and FUN!

If you're local and want to come by my house on Sunday between 2:30 and 4:30 to preview the collection shoot me an email ( and I'll send you my address.

If you're NOT local, no worries!!!  The collection will go live on Sunday and you can visit the Matilda Jane website to check it all out.  You can add things to your wishlist and then email it to me ( and my trunk keeper, Kat ( on Sunday up until noon on Monday and then we'll be in touch about payment for your order.  That's it!!  If you're looking online and you want to see something put together or have any questions, email me and I can email you back with pics and other details you may want.  I'm so excited to share this sweet collection with y'all!

Just based on previews, this gray dress with polka dot leggings is my FAVORITE!  I love outfits for G that are comfy AND cute.

And since we're talking about cute and comfy... check out G's sweet little ensemble from last weekend....

I feel like she looks about 12 when she wears skinny jeans... get this girl in some ruffle pants STAT!!!

I was taking pics of her and Mason came outside... game over. :)

Last up, my Stella and Dot show is still open, and if you're looking for a GREAT bag you should check out the How Does She Do It Tote bag.  I have it in a gold Ikat print and it's one of my absolute FAVORITES.  I'm loving this print for Spring...

Several of my friends have these prints (which are still available) and they're so cute!

The bags are roomy, have a reasonable number of pockets (can I get an Amen???) and wipe clean with a damp cloth (or baby wipe - hahaha).  The drop on the handle is perfection and I love that the zip closed.  They're big, but not huge and for the price, I think they're a great value.

This weekend is prepped to be a super fun one... Matilda Jane show, birthday party, superbowl party, etc! Hope you have lots of plans for fun and relaxing!!!" title="click to view in an external page.">An InLinkz Link-up
