Friday Favorites: Cutest Jacket Ever Edition

Happy Friday, Friends!!! Before I dive into my weekly favorites, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LUKE!!!
In case you missed it, I posted a sweet little video of him yesterday - so if you need a dose of baby pics go back and check it out :)

I can't wait to peruse through y'alls favorites this week.  Don't forget to link back to me, Erika and/or Narci and grab our graphic below...

First up on the list is Jack Bauer.  We lovingly call him "pop a squat" because if anyone is sitting (even just for a second, like to tie your shoes), he pops a squat in their lap and expects some back rubs.  Scratches are his FAVORITE.

Griffin never turns him down :)

Y'all should know by now that Evys Tree is one of my most FAVORITE companies EVER!  They sent me a new hoodie last week and it's precious!!!  It's the new Ava Racer and it's fabulous... even when you're about to spend your morning cleaning up after a sleepover.

Look how pretty!!!  This is how I pretended I looked while I picked popcorn pieces out of my couch :)

The Lilac Ava Racer

Mason's allergies have been OUT OF CONTROL this week and we ran out of medicine before school, so Dave went and bought a new bottle and brought a dose up to school for him.  While Dave gave the medicine to the nurse I got to hang out with my FAVORITE little assistant.  :)

Mason got Headbandz in his Easter basket and it's a new pre-bedtime FAVORITE at our house. ;)

And Griffin's FAVORITE is drinking my tea in the morning.

While I was looking through my blog for pictures of Luke for his birthday video I came across some sweet pictures of a few of my FAVORITE little people.  Anyone recognize the sweet little squished nose in the photo below??? :)

Or who Luke is having a date night with in this pic???

The next picture may be my FAVORITE from the entire week.  I sent it to Dave and he and I laughed WAY too hard :)

I couldn't resist these jeans or this kimono and I'm on my a-game and picked up this shirt for Mason for July 4th.  I already have the tunic below, but if you've been eyeing it, it's now on sale!

Last week we got to spend some time with one of our FAVORITE girlies.

Miley and Griffin have so much fun together playing "jump around"...

... and coloring :)

I snapped a couple pictures of Manda's sweet girl to text her and LOVE how they turned out.  

Last night we met up with Narci and she wrangled my kids for some pictures in one of my FAVORITE things about Texas - bluebonnets!  We haven't taken pictures in the bluebonnets since the boys were 4 and 1 so we figured it was time to get them done... but actually get good pictures this time. hahaha

Here's one of my FAVORITES from 2012...

I'm 100% confident that they'll be better than the last time we took them. hahaha  #thebarislow


Narci is always so great with my kids... and yes... that's Luke posing in the bluebonnets with one of his Lego bionicles. 

All Luke wanted to do was take a picture of his guy in the bluebonnets.  Mission accomplished.

Tuesday night Dave took Luke to his first Dallas Stars game.  He had a few suite tickets and so Luke got to tag along with Dave, Dave's brother, Stephen, and a few of Dave's friends.

Luke and Uncle Stephen:

That's a sweet way to enjoy a game... relax why don't ya! :) 

I mentioned earlier this week how PERFECT the weather was on Monday night.  Seriously GORGEOUS and perfect for adventuring with a few of my FAVORITES :)

Griffin's ADORABLE jacket is from a new FAVORITE Etsy Shop - Olive Annie Designs.  The fabrics are seriously incredible and you won't believe the workmanship and quality.  Griffin is in a size 3, and it fits her now and it will fit her for at least a few more seasons.  I don't keep much of Griffin's clothing, but this is a piece I'll be holding onto forever.

 Again with the bionicles :)  This time they were in their "natural habitats" and the boys were taking pictures of them. hahaha

Blowing dandelions was up next on the agenda and it was pure cuteness.

I mean! Look at that hood!!!
