Friday Favorites

Oh, hey there fall weather!!! Nice to finally see you! That’s right folks. We had a few mornings here in Alabama where it dipped down to the 40’s and I was in absolute heaven. There is nothing better than a crisp fall morning. I could even smell fall in the air just a little! I think Zoe is going to be a fall girl too, as every  morning this week when we go down in the garage to get in the car…she points outside and makes me take her out there for a minute. She looks all around and takes everything in and has the biggest smile on her face. So do I!

Favorite Moments: When I picked Zoe up on Monday, I noticed something sitting in her cubby at school. When I got closer, I realized it was a pumpkin that she painted!!! A few weeks ago there was a picture of her waiting for me in there when I picked her up with her hand prints, and now this pumpkin. These things are so precious to me! I love that her teachers work on this stuff with her and I guess I need to start a box for school keepsakes already!

Seeing the sun rising over the mountains and the way the fog rises over the water every morning on my way in has been so wonderful.

Zoe loves to play ball with us now, and I love it too! It is so cute watching her throw and roll it to us. Sometimes she even rolls it around for herself to go get. She always holds it up like…wanna play??? Yes!!! Mommy always wants to play!

Favorite Link: I found this article on Astrology for Careers to be interesting. Do you find yourself relating to your sign?

Favorite Recipe: How amazing does this easy crockpot peanut butter chicken recipe sound?? I added all the ingredients to my shopping list for next week.

Slow Cooker Peanut Butter Chicken- You had me at "peanut butter"! But it looks very, very easy, and tasty. I definitely want to make this soon.

Favorite Lust:I was shopping at Target for some work pants yesterday. Their sweaters are buy one get one 50% off right now!!! I scooped up two to replace some very old ones that I have that have seen better days and are a little misshaped and literally falling apart. I tried on this bomber jacket, but didn’t end up getting it. I haven’t stopped thinking about it since and will probably go back to pick it up. For the price point, I was surprised by the quality.

I picked this sweater up in light gray and blush pink.

I also wanted to grab these mules in black and maybe silver…but they didn’t have my size in stores. I am giving in and jumping on the backless mule train. I think they would be perfect here because we all know that warm weather will creep in and out of the next two or three months, and these say fall without being too warm and restrictive.

And how cute are these???

Favorite Funnies:

She said, 'That's a lot of money to spend on a purse!' It was then that I knew we could never be friends.

Haha yes--except mine doesn't nap anymore


Lol nothing could be more true

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Linking up with Amanda. Roll Tide!

    That’s so awesome that they do little crafts with her at daycare! That’s so cute! And hooray for Zoe being a fall girl too! It’s finally getting cooler and kind of staying cooler here, and I’m so in love! I’m ready to be done with summer until next year!

    She’s so cute, of course mom always wants to play! Love the crafts, sounds like she has a really good school she goes to. Checked out that Astrology thing since I’m struggling with what I want to be when I grow up, lol. Hope you have a great weekend!!

    Happy Friday! That little pumpkin she painted is just the cutest. My boys are peanut butter obsessed over here so I think that chicken will have to be made. Haha cracking up at the wrinkles because, truth! I hope you have a great weekend! Beautifully Candid

    Okay so that astrology thing was spot-on for me (I’m a Taurus). Wow. I’m glad you’re getting into the mule trend! They’re the comfiest shoes ever. I suggest sizing up a half-size on the Target mules! So glad I did. Have a great weekend! Love the sweet pics of Zoe.

    The morning fog rolling in looks so pretty. Peanut butter chicken, that’s a new one. Let me know how it tastes! I’m in the middle of making my grocery to-do list as I explore pinterest for new weekly ideas lol.

    Good thing Zoe isnt around Harvey Dent with that ball – it’d be in his mouth in 0.3 seconds.
    I’m excited for some crisp mornings too… but having to take Bruno out at 2am – when its in the 40’s…. oh man, not so fun

    “Scorpios have a talent for persuasion. They like to push the envelope and revel in a convincing argument” good career choice for me then, being a lawyer!

    LOL at the WTF lines, I think I have those! How adorable is Zoe’s pumpkin, and all the pointing! Serena points at everrrrrything now and wants me to show her around. My favorite is when she points at pictures of Roxy, and I say “Yes, that’s your big sister, we miss her too” <3

    Ok, so you know my feelings on the mules, but those pink ones?!?! I WANT!!! I love getting things that Sheffield has made from daycare – I keep everything like the pack rat I am, so the box is big and overflowing. I love how she’s holding up that ball in that picture!

  • Reply Bri @ My Life As October 20, 2017 at 3:43 pm

    That astrology link is actually pretty spot on. I love that Zoe is going to be a fall girl!

    LOVE those pink bow loafers! Wow, my sign related to my career was right on! Oh I still have all the boy’s artwork, so precious, you will be glad to look back on these someday. You can hang some up at her grad open house. Have a sweeeet weekend!

    the whole when your husband doesn’t like someone, neither do you thing….that’s how I am! there was this director who was a total bitch to M and so I hated her too. I would legit ignore her and pretend she wasn’t there even if she was sitting right beside me. then they somehow made up and became friends and then i was her bestie LOL

  • Reply Amanda October 20, 2017 at 10:41 pm

    I love when I get crafts from daycare! R painted pumpkins in her class too and it was the cutest. Makes me happy 🙂

  • Reply Teh Megan October 21, 2017 at 9:59 am

    I’m so jealous you got temps in the 40s! It’s not been colder than 51 here when I’ve been paying attention. Nonetheless, I’LL TAKE IT! Also, the fog makes me so happy. There’s a place on my commute where a RR track goes over the swamp and sometimes the sun rises just right and the fog and it’s so glorious, but it’s in a spot I could never stop and take a picture because one of these fool drivers would probably kill me.

    I LOVE those pink mules! I’m so into this trend right now — I didn’t think I would be but once I got my first pair I was hooked. And you’re right; you can only wear them RIGHT NOW — once the weather changes and goes into winter territory, they’ll have to be stuck in the closet til spring 🙁

    Yayyy! Glad fall weather is finally making it to you! I am happy to say it actually feels like fall (pretty consistently!) here this week too! 🙂 Glad Zoe likes it too! How cute, I love her pumpkin and that she is starting to play more! I am checking out this article, because I am a total sucker for astrology. I definitely feel like my sign, nearly all of the time. ha Hope you had a great weekend!! XO – Alexandra
