Friday Favorites...Last of 2016

The holiday season is always such a wonderful time of year but I'm more excited than ever to get "home"  to our family and friends. We incorporated some new Christmas traditions last year that we plan on continuing and maybe we'll add some new ones to mix it up...either way it's always a blast. Hope your holiday season is filled with love and be sure to make the most of these last days of 2016.

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 Monday...it'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...

Friday Favorites...R+F Launch!

love this regimen 
Y'all my Friday Favorites post this week is short and sweet due to the launch of R + F's new product coming out today. The convention is under way and the cat isn't out of the bag quite yet but they did unveil travel sizes of their regimens to us. This is so perfect right before the holidays and one less thing to worry about when packing. We got you TSA. 

I won't be shy about posting our new product this weekend (#sorrynotsorry) and please keep your fingers crossed that we find a homecoming dress. Time and patience is running out for the both of us. Our weekend is full and we're looking forward to the big "mum" exchange that is going down on Sunday.

Friday Favorites-HOCO prep...


mum base
Well, this week my daughter and I finally experienced the "Texas" mum tradition. You know, the tradition where the girls wear a gigantic fake flower adorned with numerous ribbons, glitter and trinkets around their neck and the boys wear a smaller version on their arm? Well...we were a little very overwhelmed when we first started the decorating process. The lady making it for us was super helpful and we truly appreciated (and needed) her direction...believe me when I tell you that the only limit is your imagination. Ultimately we were super excited and we cannot wait to see the finished product. I guess I'm not in the "moms against mums" group anymore. So with that being said it looks like we'll be shopping for HOCO dresses this weekend. Wish us luck in finding the perfect dress and TGIF!

Friday Favorites...Fall Y'all

my favorite decor for fall
Yesterday's high was 92 degrees. It's not your typical fall weather but I decided what better day than the first day of fall to put out my velvet pumpkins for the season. Plus, my mom was here so her helping me place them just right was an added bonus. We have a pretty full weekend with my parents in town and celebrating Jack officially becoming a teenager. 13...how did we get here so fast? Looking forward to a little cake, a little bubbles and a lot of fun this weekend.

Try It Tuesday...2 blog worthy beauty products

I had every intention of bringing you a new recipe to try this week but time got the best of me and it just didn't happen. What I did bring you is two new beauty products to try that I discovered over the weekend. Drum roll please...
TJ's salt scrub
 You can't beat the price or smell of this $6 salt scrub which works wonders on your skin. It's non-abrasive and softer than most salt scrubs. It's full of beneficial oils and your skin will thank you after your first use. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this and will be my go to scrub for when I don't feel like making my own. Click here for a TJ's close to you...

Lash Love
My daughter and I needed some mascara this weekend so we tried this one above in black from a friend of mine. We both are super happy with it and being flake and smudge free is a bonus. Click here to contact if interested in some lash love for your lashes.

Have a great week and see ya back here for Friday Favorites...

Friday Favorites...

first junior high game
Well here it is Friday again and as you know I'm not mad about it. It was a full school/work week but  watching Jack play in his first junior high football game was the icing on the cake. We've finally caught our stride and have officially transitioned from summer to school mode. That's definitely a tough transition to make don't ya think? Looking forward to a low key night so we can rest up to tackle this weekends yard work and festivities. Hope you enjoy my favorites from the week and cheers to the weekend.
