Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, Everyone!

In typical Friday fashion, I've teamed up with my girls, Narci and Andrea to host FRIDAY FAVORITES!  Every Friday we invite you to join us by blogging your faves, linking to us, and then adding your blog to the link-up at the bottom of the post.

First up, I have a little blogging recap for you.  If you've missed any posts this week, this is what I've covered...








*This girl has been with us for FIVE months and we couldn't be happier about that fact.  You can read all about how things are going at our house.

*************************

Now my HOT, RANDOM MESS of FAVORITES...

This picture is crazy blurry, but periodically during the week I'll have the kiddos go pick up their rooms.  The boys would tell me their room was clean only for me to get up there, take a peek, and see that wasn't the case at all.  They'd begin blaming each other and we were just getting no where.  Now, what I do is I send my phone up with Nixon and have him take pictures.  I tell him where to stand in the room to take the pictures and then I can point out other things that need to be done or declare them finished.  I feel like it's a pure genius plan UNTIL I go up and see they've figured out a way to cram dirty clothes, blankets, and toys into a small pile in the corner where the phone isn't capturing it!  AH!  BOYS!  hahaha!  Isn't this like motherhood?  We think we get one stage figured out and then they GROW!

***************


 Every once in a while, I have moments where I feel like I'm killing it.  Like this one, I had Shay's  recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup in my new slow cooker, the house smelled divine, and dinner would be ready at 6:00.  Then I caught a glimpse of my laundry pile and my bubble burst.  But for a second, I was Super Woman.  ;)

***************

I was scheduled to be the Mystery Reader in Bowen's preschool class last week.  At the last minute, I changed it up and grabbed Ebby Lee out of school so SHE could be the mystery reader.  Bowen didn't see that coming and I think all the kiddos thought it was fun!

***************


We celebrated Madeley Shull turning THREE earlier this week.  Madeley loves her some Britt.  I tried my best to get a picture of these two at the party.  


 I took approximately seventeen pictures but when one is smiling, the other has her eyes closed.  So I'm settling on this...
 Happy Birthday, Madeley!

 Bowen got to play with lots of friends.

And everyone had a GREAT time!

I shared about this little girl's night celebration last week, but I want to tell you about this cute little spot in Frisco, Eight11.  If you're local, you should check it out.  The atmosphere was great, live music was happening, and the food was yummy!  We had the truffle chips to begin and we all could not stop talking about them.  When one of the ladies, spotted these at Trader Joe's she brought each of us a bag...

If you're a truffle lover and a Trader Joe's shopper, add these to your next list.  :)



Speaking of truffles..Do you guys remember when Shay was on QVC?  Well, she knows my love of a truffle and came back with this goodie for me.  I put this on EVERYTHING...scrambled eggs, salad, potatoes, asparagus-I even put it in meatloaf the other day.  It's SO GOOD!  Every once in a while, Tab will politely ask me to tame the truffle salt next time.  haha!  If you're a truffle fan, you should try it!

***************

I finished this book last week and thought it was so good.  Super creepy, suspenseful, and just a great thriller!  If you're into those kinds of books, then give All the Missing Girls a try.  I'll be sure to include it in my next book review.

***************

I ran into Target just this week to grab a few things and stumbled by the clothes #accidentallyofcourse.  ;)

I grabbed these three things and wanted to share...
This plaid top.  It comes in lots of different colors.  My favorite plaid tops are the boyfriend style (a bit on the looser side) and are the soft, non-wrinkle when it sits in the dryer too long fabric.  :)  This one is both of those things.  I would take a picture of me in this but it's in the bottom of the dirty laundry pile!

This chenille cardigan.  I have a feeling it'll be worn out of the house and all the time inside as well.  Super soft, a black/white combo color, and a longer length at a great price.

I think that's it for my favorites this week!  I hope you guys have the best weekend!  XO

I went upstairs to check my kiddos rooms the other day & figured out that when I was having them clean, they were putting ALL the things underneath their beds. 😐 Happy Friday, girl!

The chenille cardigan at Target!!!!! It looks soooo cozy!!!!!! And what fun that Ebby Lee was the mystery reader. I bet Bowen was so proud!

Amanda @ That Inspired Chick said...

Target's plaid boyfriend shirts are the best! So soft! And I'm definitely going to need some truffle salt. Those chips were just the greatest thing ever but ohhhh the other things I could add truffle salt too! Happy Friday, friend!!

I love the plaid shirts from Target! I buy a new one every year! And I'm shocked at how well they've held up through the wash, etc over the years!

I just have to say that my friend has a 3 year old daughter battling brutal cancer and she just got moved to a room with a perfect view of the stadium and they posted a picture of it the day after you posted the story about it. I had no idea but seeing the picture they posted made me cry because such a simple gesture by those fans means so much to those precious kiddos!

Julie Kay said...

What super cute kiddos!

Aryn Hinton said...
