Friday Favorites - Aquarium with Friends Edition

Happy Friday, friends!  Today's going to be short and sweet because mama went back to work yesterday and I AM TIRED!!!

Erika, Narci and I are sharing our favorites (as always!) and we'd love for you to join us!  Grab our graphic, link back to one (or all!) of us and share your favorites from the week...

Monday Dave and I took the kids to the Dallas World Aquarium and we picked up one of our very FAVORITE people to join us!

Griffin's FAVORITE part is the penguins!

And the otters were extra spunky that day.

 This snake was intrigued by Mason and was totally creeping me out

We watched a fish feeding...

... checked out the giant catfish...

... and made our way to the shark tunnel.

We were there right when it opened at 9 and it was awesome because it was pretty much empty as we we walked through.  If you've been there before you know how rare that is!

When we got to the end the kids asked to go back and see the sloth and so we did just that... and actually ended up doing the entire aquarium a second time.  

This time around the manatee was out and carrying a piece of wood.  So cute!

 My FAVORITE part of the whole morning was when these two cuties picked out notepads and took "notes" ;)  They couldn't have been more precious!

 Probably my FAVORITE picture of the week...

 ... and would you believe she was NOT TIRED!!! ;) hahahaha

Rifle Paper Co. has some of my FAVORITE florals and so I about fell over when I saw  these!
I ordered them in a half size up thanks to the reviews and can't wait to show them to y'all when they come in!  I think they're going to be so cute this fall with  this hoodie...

And how great would it be on the weekend with  these leggings and  poncho (by the way I got this poncho and it is INCREDIBLE!!! Crazy soft!)

And I think they'd be great with either of these dresses for school...

We met my dad for lunch earlier this week because tacos and Haha are two of our FAVORITE things...

And so are homemade ice cream bars!

Last week I used my Anthropologie teacher discount (YESSSSS!) to pick up  this dress and it's a new FAVORITE!

I love the material, the length and the color.  It's lightweight for now but great colors for Fall.  I paired it with my  FAVORITE wedges and loved the whole look.

I was cleaning up in the van and found this art from VBS... 

... it's a new fridge FAVORITE!

Today I'm currently in my happy place - putting my new classroom together!!! And if you're looking for me tonight I'll be the one passed out on the couch :) 

HAPPY Friday, friends!!!
