Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!!!    Erika is out today and I'm holding down the fort and I'm so excited that lots of y'all are linking up with us and if you're linking up with us make sure you grab our graphic, link back to one (or all!) of us and share your own Friday Favorites post.

This cutie is loving all things festive :)

One of my students brought me some of his FAVORITE Dutch treats since he knows I have Dutch heritage as well.  SO SWEET!

I mentioned on IG that my parents have MOVED! It's bittersweet because we have LOOOOVED having them so close by for literally our kids entire lives but we are so so so excited about their new adventures in the country!  This backyard view isn't too shabby!

They bought a house on 5 acres about 45 minutes away from our house and it's absolutely GORGEOUS!  We hung out up there twice last weekend and the kids pretty much want to move in :) 

Lots of exploring and so much fun to be had out there and we can't wait!

Their new driveway looks a little bit different than their old one :)

It was chilly last weekend and I got to wear my Fall/Winter "Saturday momiform" :)  

Some driveway basketball is always a FAVORITE...

... and last weekend a worm hunt while we were planting bushes was the highlight for Mason and G.

Rosie's FAVORITE thing is to ride in the car...

... and last weekend our FAVORITE volleyball player FINALLY for the ball over the net!  She's been working on her serve all season and she did it!  TWICE!

My classroom is next door to the library and Griffin's teacher always lets her pop in and show me her books (it's during my afternoon planning period) on her way to recess.  Seeing this sweet face mid-day is my FAVORITE!

You can't use my discount code on the sale items but if you add anything to your cart that's not on sale the code ANDREA10 will get you 10% off your order.

Erika hosted her annual dress-up Halloween party this week and the theme was "witches" :)  I went as a "basic witch" because well... I have no shame in my "basic" game.  I wore this hat to complete my "basic" ensemble if you haven't checked it out already make sure to check out Erika's post  HERE!  Everything was beautiful and delicious and we laughed for basically 3 hours straight.

Last up - Mason left this drawing on my bathroom counter and it definitely brought a smile to my face when I saw it there... it appears to be a dinosaur bone turning into a taco-dinosaur?  I'll confirm with him and report back but his creativity is my FAVORITE!

Our playroom Christmas tree is always a FAVORITE and I get asked every year about the ornaments on it.  I bought a bunch of them initially from Target but the collection of colorful and crazy has grown every year into the hot mess of fun that it is today :)  

I've seen several places start to put ornaments out and I've gathered up some great ones for y'all in case you're looking to start a fun tree of your own.

I hope y'all have an awesome weekend! We have a movie party, varsity football game, first birthday party, football CHAMPIONSHIP for Mason (WOO HOOO!!!) and a few other things on the calendar so it should be a fun one. 

HAPPY FRIDAY, friends!
