Friday Faves!

Friday, October 18, 2019

Happy Friday!  I can't believe October is almost over and November and December will be over before we know it.  Time flies, doesn't it?

I've got a couple of FAVORITE things to share with y'all today!

THIS DRESS.  This dress, y'all.  I had no idea the top was smocking until I had already ordered it.  I'm not a fan of smocking on myself, so I wasn't thrilled.  Once I tried it on though, it's so unnoticeable that it's my new favorite dress!  It also comes in navy, too.

 I also got this dress and wasn't expecting to love it so much too!  I've gotten a ton of compliments on it.  It's true to size (so is the other one).  This also comes in another pattern, but I thought this looked better for fall and winter.

(Picture me yelling that ha!)
This time with Harrison is flying by and makes me want to cry just thinking about how much I love him.  He's started a new thing when he gets really excited to see me or when I pick him up and he puts both hands on the back of my neck (pulling my hair while he's at it) and then puts his mouth right up to my neck or chin.  It's the cutest thing and I'm going to pretend it's him kissing me haha!  I don't even mind that he pulls my hair out while he's doing it 😂

I finally gave in to trying essential oils after Harrison has stayed so sick since school started.  I was desperate and willing to try anything at that point.  I used to think essential oils were stupid, but I diffuse lavender and cedarwood every night in our bedroom (sometimes adding in thieves if we're not feeling well).  The first night I diffused it in our bedroom I asked Dustin the next morning what his thoughts were and he said he's never slept better.  And neither have I!  I even made my sister a roller ball for tension and sore muscles and she loves it, too!  If you're interested in the starter kit (which is what I did and I'm so glad I did because it really is the best deal) then you can use my link to order!

Life Lately!

Monday, October 14, 2019

Hey, remember me?!  I feel like I need to blow the dust off of this blog 😜

This school year has been much harder than I anticipated, so I probably won't be blogging regularly like I used to until I figure things out.  Just bear with me, please :)  I'm more active on instagram, so in the meantime, find me on there!

I was going to do a favorites post today, but I need to catch y'all up on things before I share a few favorites so I hope to have that for y'all Friday!

 We dedicated Harrison at church October 6th.  In front of our congregation and both families, we promised to raise Harrison in a home that points him to Christ and our church family promised to help us raise him.  It was the sweetest time and he entertained the congregation with his smile and his tongue ha!  This is my favorite dress right now!

 The day before my sister (who is a photographer) was doing cotton mini sessions and she had one opening so we took advantage of it!  I got this in an 11x14 so I cannot wait to get it framed!

 I got this one day from his teacher at school and died--this is his personality to a T.  I have no idea how he learned to do this, but this is Harrison 😂😂

 A shaved ice place opened up downtown so we went one Friday night.  Harrison took advantage of us look at the camera to go for my shaved ice--and you can see that Dustin got ice cream instead. 

 We had to try on our new (and bigger) Christmas pjs to see how they will fit us--I CANNOT WAIT!!!  November 1st, we're waiting on you!!

 It's been incredibly hot here, still in the 90s.  We knew a cold front was coming so when the temp finally hit the low 80s, we went for a walk!  I wanted to get a picture of him in front of the house before we went back inside, and as you can tell, he was thrilled.

 My sister turned 28!!

I still can't get over how much I love this little boy 😍

My Perfect Fall Day

Thursday, September 26, 2019

Happy Thursday, y'all!  It's the last day of our Fall Favorites link up and I hope you've enjoyed either participating or reading it!  As I was thinking about today's prompt (which I'm really excited about), I realized how different these perfect days were going to be depending upon the season of life you're in.

Since I'm in the season of life with an almost 7 month old (TOMORROW!!!!), mine is going to be way different than my life before becoming a mom lol!

I would start my perfect fall day sleeping in until 7am.  I used to enjoy waking early (as in, between 6 and 7), but now that I am no longer in control over when I wake up or if I even get a full nights sleep, I'd like to sleep until 7....uninterrupted haha!

I'd want it to be a chilly morning so I can throw on pants, grab a blanket, turn on the fire, and drink a cup of coffee.  This sounds so nice to me typing this out right now 😜 And Dustin would have Chick fil a breakfast waiting on me, too haha! 

I would also not have to work on my perfect day, Dustin would be off of work, and we'd have Harrison with us.

After I spent a lazy morning drinking coffee, playing with Harrison, and watching The Today Show, I'd get ready and we'd go out to do some fall activity.  I actually think it would be so fun to go to the zoo together.  We took Harrison this summer and it was really hot, so I'm sure it'd be really nice in the fall--plus, I'm sure there would be fall decorations. And since the weather is going to be slightly chilly, I can wear fall clothes and not sweat.

We'd make it home in time for me to take a really nice afternoon nap.  I'm talking a cold, dark room with Harrison's sound machine on (the only way to sleep now haha!).

Dinner would be pizza from Domino's or from our local pizza place downtown.  Is it crazy that pizza is such a treat to me?  And while we're eating pizza, we're (I say we're but Dustin is weird and hates movies) watching either You've Got Mail or Beetlejuice!

This may not sound like much, but it doesn't take much to please me these days.  Any day that I get to spend with my boys is a perfect day...especially if it's the whole day :)

Link up and share your perfect fall day!  I can't wait to read!
