Friday Faves!

Happy Friday, y'all!
Today I've got a few FAVORITES to share with y'all so I'm just going to hop right into it!

November is National Adoption Awareness Month.  I keep saying it's so funny how God works, but I know everything He does is with purpose.  I'm part of an adoption Facebook group, and while Dustin and I were in the early stages of paperwork for FAC, I posted a question on the Facebook group asking for advice.  This girl, Julie, replied back and I think I ended up messaging her asking her something else since I found out she was with FAC, too.  We ended up swapping phone numbers and have texted pretty much every day since then since we were pretty much in the same exact place within FAC.  I know God brought us together to give us someone who we could get advice from or to have someone bring us out of the sadness the adoption process sometimes brings and point one another to the hope we have in Christ.  She posted this yesterday and I think she said everything of how I feel right now perfectly!

My Halloween costume for school is still a favorite!!  My friend Hailey and I recreated those "Best Friend" necklaces that were popular when we were in elementary and junior high.  Sadly, some of our little junior high kids didn't get it and kept asking why we had broken hearts haha!

We're putting some finishing touches on the nursery, so last night we hung frames for a grid gallery wall.  Well, our marriage survived the tedious measurements of hanging frames 😂.  I can't wait to share the nursery with y'all eventually!!  And since I know people are going to ask, yes the walls are blue and no that doesn't mean we're having a boy.  We're still open to either gender, but blue is my favorite color and I've made the nursery gender neutral--even with blue walls.

Y'all know my obsession with Meghan Markle.  This might have been my favorite look of hers while she and Harry were on their 16 day tour of Australia and surrounding areas!  While I love Kate Middleton, I think I love Meghan Markle's style a little more because while she does dress classic, she also modernizes it and I love it!

This Free People sweater has been my most purchased item from the blog because Nordstrom price matched it a little over a week ago.  Since it's now back to the original price, I found this FP sweater that is on sale (50% off!!) and so cute!  I love FP sweaters because they really are great quality.


  1. Haha - hanging those frames is the worst - Derek always gets so mad! I love your Halloween costume!

  2. Meghan's style is so spot on fabulous!! YES to adoption awareness, so special, so important to me as well!! I cannot wait to see the nursery it's going to be so sweet, I just know it!! Happy weekend doll!

  3. I can't wait to see the nursery!!! I love that you are doing blue walls! And I cannot believe that some kids didn't know about the friendship necklaces...those still aren't a thing?!

  4. I cannot even imagine the waiting sweet girl. Praying for your baby mommma and I know God has just the perfect little one chosen for you two. I don't know if I've ever shared with you that I actually have a half sister my mom gave up for adoption. This month makes me think of that and how we have clumsily handled that relationship. Can't wait to see the nursery!

  5. You are in my constant prayers. I hope that you'll be welcoming a sweet little baby very soon!

  6. I am so so so so so glad you've been able to connect with someone who can empathize with you in this way! That is God! Community is everything, and having someone understand to a tee your deepest struggles is a true gift.

  7. Praying for you and Dustin. I am glad that you have someone that you can talk to who gets it. I love those pictures in the nursery. Also, I love the Halloween costume. It is so funny what kids don't know kids looked at me crazy the other day when I said that we had to watch commercials...Hahaha!

  8. Your Halloween costume is adorable!! :) So fun and creative.

  9. Oh, it is so true that adoption is a journey and not for the faint of heart, but oh, so worth it. I just know the Lord has the perfect Mom and baby awaiting "just for you." Blessings abundant as you continue to wait.
