Friday Favorites

Oh hey there, last weekend of August! Crazy, right??? When I opened the back door to let Mac out this morning, it wasn’t oppressively hot outside. Dare I say there was just the slightest chill in the air?!? (When I say chill, I mean it was 64 instead of 84 at 6am.) It was quite lovely. I don’t know about you all, but I am SO ready for fall!!!! Next Saturday football starts!!! Anyone else counting down?

Love it ....have already started the countdown RTR ❤️

Not really sure what all we  have planned for this weekend. I know at the top of the list will be purchasing a baby gate. Someone is on the move all day every day.

Favorite Moments: I had a work lunch last Friday and had to cancel lunch with Laura. So we decided we would make Tuesday special instead and went to Babalu. It was Taco Tuesday, where tacos are $2 each, so obviously we had to try lots. Annnnnd they basically have the best guac ever, so that was a duh.

On Thursday when I was driving through town and noticed the Heavenly Donut Truck! It is not often that food trucks come up our way!!! I swore if I ever saw them, I would grab some donuts for Zoe’s sweet teachers, and that is exactly what I did. Of course, I grabbed one for myself too. I know those teachers work hard and  have so much patience. They love on my Zoe Bear day after day and I wanted to do something for them.

I think that Zoe is cutting some more teeth right now. She hasn’t been napping much and seems a little off. Plus that pesky cold is still lingering around. That doesn’t keep those sweet smiles from coming though!!! Words cannot describe how much I love this little girl!

Favorite Purchase: On Tuesday night, I got up the courage to start removing items from my closet that do not fit right now. I still have a ways to go to get back to my pre-pregnancy size. Every morning when I get dressed, I start stressing out in my closet because I am staring at an entire wardrobe that simply does not fit. I have a few select things that I can wear and feel confident in. That is not good for my emotional state. I removed about 3/4 of my clothes. I put them in my office in a basket so that when the time comes, I can have them all back. I just don’t need them staring me in the face right now. On Wednesday, I went to Nordstrom Rack to get a few pieces so I have more than just a couple outfits to wear. My most favorite item I picked up is this top from Bobeau. It is so flattering on!!! I grabbed it in light gray because it was all they had at my location, but I really want this pink color too! You can’t beat the price and it is so cozy!

I also grabbed this Pleione ruffle top and this DR2 poncho.

I thought about maybe doing a post on how to dress your postpartum body while you are in transition to your former self. Or whatever your new self is going to look like. Would you be interested in that?

Favorite Recipe: I am going to try this greek yogurt chicken salad for lunch next week! It sounds super easy (uses rotisserie chicken) and I think I am going to have it with crackers, and then bring some carrots to go along with it too.

Favorite Funnies:

Ha ha , I know right!

Bean salad

It's beginning to look a lot like fuck this. ... oh hell yes!!

Linking up with Amanda. How you all have a great weekend!!!

    Poor Zoe! I hope that she starts to feel better and gets back to her usual happy self! And hooray for cooler weather! That’s seriously the best part about the summer, when it’s coming to an end and fall and football weather are getting ready to start!

    OMG those donuts. I need them.

    These past two morning have been glorious! The cooler weather has been amazing – so ready for football! Heavenly donuts rules, and so did those tacos. I’m down with eating tacos EVERY Tuesday for the rest of my life, so we should be good on once a month. 🙂 glad Z is feeling better, and she still looks adorable as ever in her pink elephant outfit.

    LOL at coffee salad and coffeegasms! Poor Zoe with the toofers, Serena went through that a few weeks ago and then sprouted all 4 on the top row in the front. She was putting in some serious work! Love that it doesn’t take away their sweet smiles. And all that food – YUMMMMM! I need that guac and those donuts in my life stat! Happy Friday <3

    I hope she gets to feeling better soon! So sweet of you to take them donuts and they all look so yummy 🙂 My son is 21 months and I just now made it back to pre-pregnancy weight. For the longest I just didn’t care and I like food! I just decided one day to start eating better and counting calories, some how I stuck to it and it worked. It’s all about just being happy I say, however that looks for you.

    Those tacos look amazing and $2 is a great price. You have me craving some homemade gauc now. So yum! Enjoy the weekend! I wish there was a hint of chill in the air here but nope almost 100 degrees outside.

    Happy Friday!! Zoe’s sweet smiles are the best. That is a great idea with your closet. I need to tackle mine and have been putting it off but I hate feeling overwhelmed when I go in there. I love chicken salad with rotisserie chicken but I’ve never tried it with greek yogurt, I bet it’s really good! I hope you have a great weekend! Beautifully Candid

    Those donuts look insane– I definitely see a donut in my near future now! The tacos look delicious too– it’s the best when you can try a bunch of different ones! I was just looking through my closet (for things that fit lol) and saw a poncho and was so happy it’s almost poncho season again! Love all of the new tops you picked up!

    Those tacos and donuts look heavenly. I could use both right now. I love the tops you got at Nordstrom Rack. Such great pieces there. I need to go back. I hope teething is ok and Zoe goes back to her usual happy self. Have a great weekend!

    It’s certainly feeling a lot like fuck this! I am so excited for football season – college football is my favorite. I’m sorry that you’re struggling with clothes but glad you treated yourself to a few new things! I’m loving this cooler weather, too. Hope it’s here to stay! Happy Friday!

    Very very cute top purchases! That was so sweet of you to get Zoe’s teachers some donuts, I always make sure the boy’s teachers knew that they were appreciated. Man, you make me want tacos! I am so excited for football I cannot even stand it. Tonight we’re going to the high school game but I’m so excited for college kick off next weekend. I hope this weekend brings you a lot of joy!
