Friday Favorites! Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner Edition ;)

Happy Friday, Friends!!!  This week has been kind of a blur and I am going in to full on party planning mode this weekend.  If you need me I'll be at Hobby Lobby ;)  

Actually, this weekend is super exciting because Luke is being baptized!!!
I'll give more details next week, but we are beyond proud of him and can't wait for Sunday!

So how fun was yesterday???  I'm so glad to hear that I'm not the only one who is equally afraid of E.T. and hurting the feelings of stuffed animals.

First up on my list of FAVORITES is one of my very FAVORITE pics from the week.  Love that little reflected smirk :)

Next up is some serious SASS that G has been giving Dave when he snaps a pic to text to me in the mornings. I pretty much always get to hang with Mason in the mornings, but on several days of the week G is still asleep when I leave so he always sends me a pic :)

And then there was this day where she most definitely was NOT asleep when I left.  In fact, she stood right there and watched me get ready. hahaha

G's Easter dress and headband arrived and I'm IN LOVE!!!  For sure a new FAVORITE!  I can't wait for her to wear it next week and then throughout the summer.  It's a total "princess moment".  

Our FAVORITE little pup had a vet appointment this week to get his booster shots and he's scheduled for surgery mid-April.  He's going to be "fixed" and have a whole bunch of teeth extracted.

We're keeping our fingers crossed that in the next two weeks he loses his full set (minus one) of puppy teeth that he still has in addition to having his full set of adult teeth.  I had no clue that this could even happen to dogs and we want to take care of it now so that his little jaw can grow and he can get his tongue in his mouth :) hahaha

After his appointment we went to pick up Luke from school and getting to show Jack Bauer to his friends at ESS is one of Luke's FAVORITE things.

 After school snack time and a DEATH STARE from his sister.  That look is my FAVORITE!

A few weeks ago I finished One Tree Hill and several people recommended Gossip Girl.  I started it this week and it's RIDICULOUS!  Why are they all being served alcohol at restaurants when they're in HIGH SCHOOL?!?!?!  Are they ever in school???  I'm so confused.  And intrigued.  And totally into the show :)

On Monday night, Narci hosted a "FAVORITE beauty product" exchange as part of our girls night and I left with a new base and top coat.  Y'all.... I'm SUPER impressed so far!  I did a coat of the base coat, two coats of Essie Mod Square and then a coat of the top coat.  It looks like a gel and has lasted really well so far.  I'm going on day four without a single chip!

Next up is one of my FAVORITE Amazon purchases EVER!  I air dry most of my kids clothes... which means I need a big drying rack.  I found THIS ONE on Amazon for under $30 (it was $108!) and it's AMAZING!  It folds up and fits behind my laundry room door and hangs A TON!!!

 This girl's current FAVORITE snack?  Ritz crackers.  And yes... she's perfected the puppy dog eyes.

Planning parties is one of my FAVORITE things and this year I'm attempting to scale back and get LOTS of input from Luke and Mason on exactly what they want.  I can't wait to celebrate with him and his little friends :)

Yesterday a package from Crystal Faye arrived in the mail (EEEEK!!! Thank you so so so much, Crystal!!!) and inside is Griffin's new FAVORITE thing.  A big 'ol tote bag just like mommy's :) 


The little piggies peeking out kill me :)

One of my boy's FAVORITE things to do?  Check out the fountain at Daddy's work. 

 And this girl's FAVORITE part of the library???  The "pooters" as Mason calls them :)


Yesterday I wore a new FAVORITE wardrobe staple.  This cute cream cardi I picked up at Anthropologie for $20!!!


Last up, a FAVORITE activity in our house.... rocking the babies!  It's the sweetest :)

    Love the new bag, but think it should read "Gwippin!" Happy Friday!!

  7. This is just wayyy too much cuteness in one post!! Hehe

  11. So fun! I love that GG and Presley will be matching on Easter!! They will get a total kick out of that!! Also the pictures of the kiddos at the library are adorable!!

  12. Oh my goodness, I love her Easter dress! So cute!
    Also, I must get that drying rack. I air dry most of our clothes, too (everyone thinks I'm crazy), and that would be a great option!

  13. I cannot wait to see Luke be baptized!! The Shull kids are so excited for him! And those first two pics of Griffin...she looks like 3 years old! When did she get so big?!?!

  14. That first pictures in the tub is adorable! Such a sweet family. Have fun celebrating and enjoying all of the birthday fun :) Winks and Eyerolls

  15. I watch Gossip Girl and also wonder about how these teenagers are drinking alcohol. Also, where are their parents? Must be problems of the super rich!
    Loved the picture in the bathtub with the reflection--so artistic!

  16. Loving your favorite snapshots of the week -- so much cuteness here!! Happy party planning! Hobby Lobby is where it's at ;) Have a great weekend & thanks for hosting the link up! Excited to get in on the fun here!! (:

  17. This post is full of all kinds of fun! Have a great weekend, and congratulations to Luke!

  18. That cardigan is so stinking cute and I'm so mad that I didn't get it before it sold out! Other than that such great photos!

  19. What's the brand of the gel top coat on your pretty pink nails?

  20. Love that Luke is getting sweet!!! Love Griffin's crystal faye bag! So cute!

  21. Just ordered the drying rack!!! Score!!! Yippee! Thanks for sharing!

  22. That first picture is ADORABLE! I always find I get the cutest pictures in the bath too :) Quick question...I'm at work so I didn't have a chance to click the links yet but that base and top said they're like gel? It doesn't need that special drier thing to work does it? You just paint and let air dry?

  23. Congrats to Luke! Your family is adorable :)

  24. I have drying rack envy right now. ha ha ha! have a great weekend, thank for sharing with us!

  25. Can't wait to see all the party details and I am so excited I won the table runner!

  26. I, too, am a sympathetic blusher. And then I realize I'm getting red and get embarrassed about THAT. And THEN I start to cry. Ugh. It's terrible. I don't even have to be embarrassed for real for it to happen. Also, I read when I blow dry my hair. My kindle changed my life. No more book closing on my lap!

  27. New follower :) You little ones are so precious! Your daughter is too cute in that Matilda Jane <3 I totally need that drying rack.

  28. Can you tell me the name of the pants griffin is wearing with the purple/blueish chevron top? That top is so hard to match and that outfit is adorable..but griffin is adorable in everything you put her in! Thanks!!

  29. Your children are adorable! I love that cardigan! So jealous of that steal! :) Can't wait to join your linkup next time!
