Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!!!  Today  ErikaNarci and I are hosting our regular Friday Favorites link-up and we'd love for you to join us.  All we ask is that you link back to one (or all!) of us and share a Friday Favorites post of your own! Easy!

First up on my list of FAVORITES this week is this JOY mug...

... from  The Marketplace.  It's the PERFECT mug and I love it so much!  I was introduced to  The Marketplace through a social media friend and they're a wonderful shop that partners with Christian organizations around the world who are empowering people with employment which then opens the door to share the love of Jesus.  They  connect their customers with our artisans and they know by purchasing a bag or a necklace that they are changing a life.  They're currently partnered with close to 30 organizations in 87 countries and are doing amazing things - specifically in fighting human trafficking.  I ordered a gorgeous nativity from them last month and when I saw this JOY mug on the site I quickly ordered one for me and one for my mom.  If you're looking for a place to order unique and thoughtful Christmas gifts from I can't recommend them enough!

Next up is this love...

We've had our FAVORITE kitty for a whole year and she's been the perfect addition to our family.  Can you even get over how much she's grown this year???

Next is  my FAVORITE laundry product EVER!  I mentioned this on my IG stories and felt like it was worth a mention here as well. I've met my fair share of gross stains, dirty shoes and other general nastiness and this spray works for me EVERY time.  I had one of my plants leak through a basket onto our living room carpet last month and it was a while before I realized (because we don't typically move the basket) and after using carpet cleaner with no success I sprayed this directly on the carpet, rubbed it in with a sponge, rinsed it with water and voila!  Clean carpet!

Exhibit A... Griffin's gross cheer shoes after her game on Saturday...

... sprayed them down, threw them in the washer and white again!

Getting messages saying that you're loving something I've shared is always my FAVORITE!

Griffin had team shirt day on Monday and so of course she sported a tee for her FAVORITE team - TCU Horned Frogs :)

Mason brought home some graded work earlier this week and the way he writes certain words with emphasis is my absolute FAVORITE!

I shared my FAVORITE Halloween and Thanksgiving books in THIS POST but then I found  this Thanksgiving book the other day...

... and fell in LOVE!

If you're looking for a great Thanksgiving book for your home or to read in a classroom setting this one is PERFECT!

My family halloween costume post was one of my very FAVORITES all year and I LOVED how many of y'all sent me pictures of yours this year!  If you did a family costume I want to share it- send it to me at and I'll put it in my post for next year.  This picture from  Katie blew me away! Her mother-in-law made the costumes (minus Maui's shirt)... aren't they incredible?!?!

I saw my girl on my way to lunch... FAVORITE!

And I can't wait to see how cheer pics turn out because my FAVORITE little cheerleader rocked it!

I hope that y'all have a fantastic weekend - I'm pretty much beside myself because I'm headed to NYC with some of my FAVORITE girls and I can. not. wait.  Happy Friday, friends!
