Friday Favorites

Wahoo!!  The weekend is HERE!!  (Unless you're reading this in the morning, then it'll be here soon.) :)  We have a super low-key weekend planned AND we even get an extra day off.  I'm sharing a few Friday Favorites with my girls, Andrea and Narci.  You can join us too!!  Simply blog your favorite anything, link back to us, and then add your blog to the link-up.  It's super easy!  

My FAVORITES are super random.  Prepare yourself!

I saw this on Jennie Allen's Instagram yesterday and loved it!!  I kept going back to it throughout the day thinking about some of our FAVORITE friends bringing home their new little girl.  

Clean kiddos in pajamas before bed is another one of my FAVORITES!  (Even if they're NOT smiling!)

These pictures of Bowen's room definitely are NOT my FAVORITE, but keep scrolling to the end.  I feel like during the holidays and after when we unpack we do a lot of shoving things in a closet or a cabinet.  I seriously felt/feel like if you open ANY closet or drawer or cabinet in my house you should be prepared for something to fall on you!!!  It was time to begin cleaning and organizing!!  I started in Bowen's room.  I forgot to take a good "before" picture.  This is after I'd already pulled everything out to sort.

Proof there was pretty much something covering almost every single inch of the floor!

The big pile of clothes I'm passing on to my cousin.  She just had the cutest baby boy, Asa.  I'm telling you his face is perfection!  He's adorable!  Anyway, I filled three bags of clothes for Baby Asa!

This was a Pinterest idea.  I searched for any helpful hints I could find.  This door organizer was a suggestion.  I filled it with random toys....cars, animals, figurines on the bottom where Bowen can reach.  The taller slots are empty, but when I organize all the craft supplies I'm going to stuff them with paint, ribbons, and anything else that fits. 

Organized ALL the clothes and added a little shelf under the rack to hold cars, puzzles, and legos.

Ebby Lee was super pumped with the finished product and I was too!!  One room down....only 9ish to go??  hahahaha!!  The end result of an organized room is a FAVORITE for sure!!

Hahahahaha!!!  I saw a friend post this "Aging App" on Instagram.  This is supposed to be all of us in 2049.  YIKES!!!  Ebby Lee told me these pictures gave her nightmares!  That girl!  Let's just say I'm thankful for Rodan and Fields!  :)

Some of our very FAVORITE people are back in Texas!!!  We made signs to welcome them home.

Ebby Lee and Presley waited patiently (kind of) at the airport.

Look at all the friends the Shulls had ready to greet them!!  (This was friends-only.  There were lots of family members too!)

The welcoming crew was READY!!


EEK!!!!  This picture is dark, but check out Nixon and Smith.  Waving at each other!  Nixon REALLY missed his bestie! 

And Ebby Lee missed her some Kensington!!  Ebby Lee followed Kensington around visiting family and friends while holding her hand the entire time!  hahaha!

That darn suitcase handle!!!  Bowen meeting his new friend!  

The Slaughters are super excited about the Shulls' Party of Five!!  We are so thankful to have friends who are listening to God's call on their lives and ACTING on it!!  We love you, Shulls!!

I have the best girlfriends EVER!!  We're all ready to snuggle that sweet girl!!

Hope you've had a great week too!!  Enjoy this long weekend!  Happy Friday!  XOXO
