Friday Favorites...Dec. 2

 acorns on my morning walk
Happy December! Well there's 22 shopping days left until Christmas and I feel that I've made a pretty good dent into our list so far. My main focus is to get our holiday card out, which we haven't sent in two years. I've been working on it and hope to wrap it up this weekend. Speaking of the freakin' weekend,  torrential downpours are in the forecast so I need to run my Saturday errands today so I don't melt! I'm actually looking forward to spending the weekend baking and being hunkered down in the house. Hope your weekend is full of holiday cheer...

Friday Favorites...

I still can't believe that Thanksgiving is next week...where in the heck did November go? Our turkey day menu is 80% planned (it doesn't include turkey) and my goal is to finish up the shopping this weekend so I don't have to set foot into a grocery store next week and fight the crowds. I will admit that I do enjoy the crowded vibe at Whole Foods the night before Thanksgiving. Weird I know but hopefully we can stop in and have a cocktail to take it all in and enjoy the holiday spirit. With only two days of school next week I already feel like our much needed break from the daily grind is here. Have the best weekend ever everyone!

Friday Favorites...Scenes from the Nutcracker Market

should have bought this
You know that feeling when you look through your camera roll after a day of shopping and come across something that you totally should have purchased...but didn't? Or am I the only one who does this?  It's that time of year again where we take the annual girls shopping trip to the Nutcracker Market and wrap it up with tequila and tacos. Yesterday we hit it hard and had a fun time shopping while getting in the Christmas spirit. I always look forward to going and I'm thinking I might have to start this tradition with my daughter who has asked to go ever since we moved here 6 years ago.  Plus, how else am I going to get my piece of crystal home? 

Happy Friday y'all!

Friday Favorites...Hello November!

family Halloween pic
Well hello there November! Now if we could just get some Novemberish fall temps I would be a happy camper.  Wow...what a fun week this has been. We visited with the neighbors and handed out candy on Halloween, did a little shopping, pampered myself with a mani/pedi and spent last night at a charity dinner with friends. We kind of forgot that it was a Thursday night we were having so much fun but now I'm ready to lay low for the next couple of days. I kinda dropped the ball with pictures but did manage to participate in the yearly #OneDayHH on Instagram

Can't wait till Monday rolls around! eeks...seize the weekend y'all

Friday Favorites...Halloween Weekend

last year's halloween tablescape
I still haven't brought out any Halloween decor around here but I'm not sweatin' it. My goal is to hunt up these napkins I have above from last year and set a spooky dinner table for's the least I can do for my kiddos.  How 'bout those Cubbies?  Since Wrigley is one of my favorite baseball stadiums and Chicago has a little piece of my heart, I'm rooting for them big time. Are you? As always, I'm looking forward to sleeping in a little the next two days and to a relaxing weekend to recharge my batteries. Off to Orange Theory to finish up hell week and to get my free tank. Have a good one y'all...

Friday Favorites...10/21

 my daughter and her date from HOCO last weekend
So Halloween is 10 days away and I haven't put out one decoration...inside or out. What? Not one spider, not one haunted house, and not even one skull. For some reason, the past couple of months have been crazy busy (in a good way) so I'm thinking it's best to just jump on into my Christmas decorating. Oh and speaking of Christmas you have 10 more weekends to get your shopping wrapped up. Yikes! The kids have a half day of school today so it looks like our weekend is starting early! TGIF y'all...

Friday Favorites...HOCO YO

It's HOCO week and the kids mum exchange went down last Sunday afternoon. If you don't know about these mums, it's a long standing tradition here in Texas. The mums represent your hobbies and interests and can be as big as you want them to be (obviously everything is just a little bigger here in Texas). They are adorned with all sorts of trinkets, candy, cow bells (more cowbell...yes please), teddy bears, ribbons and Ryan's even lights up! LOVE it. The girls wear them around their necks and the boys wear them on their arms to school on the day of the homecoming football game and to the game itself that night. I can't imagine being a teacher that day...BRUTAL with all the bells and clanks and what not. We sure are looking forward to all of the festivities tomorrow. Have a good weekend y'all...
