Friday Favorites {#132}

Happy Friday, y’all! How was your week? I’m definitely ready for the weekend… I can tell you that much!

As always, I’m linking up with Andrea and Erika for this week’s Friday Favorites.

This week’s favorites are just my favorite(s) of each day. I’m trying to take a moment to look at the little and big moments of each day.


As I shared in Monday’s post, Hayden had state cross country on Saturday. It’s hard to believe that his second middle school season is over. He’s ready to come back stronger and faster next year.


Sunday was one of my favorite days of the year…we went to the pumpkin patch!

Then, it was Hayden’s turn for the “you are special” red plate for the end of his 7th grade cross country season.


On Monday, the temps cooled off significantly, and I was ready to dress for fall! I picked up this plaid flannel at Target and love it. It’s a high/low style, so it’s long enough to wear with leggings, but I wore it with jeggings to school. It’s definitely oversized, and I settled on the medium after the large seemed too roomy (I ordered both sizes and returned one). I didn’t realize when I ordered it, but it has pockets. Win, win!


After school on Tuesday, I stopped by the library for a couple of books I had on hold. Like last year, I wanted to read at least one Christmas book in November before reading a few more in December. I decided to go ahead and request a couple and these were ready for me:

{Side note: please let me know of any holiday/Christmas book recs you have!}

Tuesday evening, Hadley joined Trav’s club season group for a run. I reminded her how cold it was outside and to dress warmly. She came out wearing sweats and said, “I look like Major!”

His “Majoriform” is definitely sweats and tennis shoes. He likes to keep it comfy 24/7.


Wednesday afternoon, we were headed out the front door, and our trees stopped me in my tracks. The sun light was hitting them just right. I always love how beautiful the leaves are, but then I feel like they don’t stay on the trees long enough.


On Monday, I saw that Antique Candle Co. was offering 25% off their Tree Farm candle, so I went ahead and snagged it! It arrived yesterday. While I’m still savoring the days of fall, I know this will be a favorite scent in colder months.


Cross country photos came in this week. Trav’s brother took the team photos, and they turned out amazing!

And…I know this guy! Travis was interviewed on TVG. So proud of him.

Favorite Mom Meme:

Y’all this is a bone of contention at my house. Nothing drives me crazier than the cup upside down in the sink (I tell Hayden he’s like the Wet Bandits…this is his signature move!), the toilet paper roll on the counter, or the backpack in the middle of the floor!

Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday

OMG…this pic from 2012 is one of my faves. This was before Kroger Clicklist. The kids loved riding in the car shopping cart. My first stop would always be produce to pick them up an apple to snack on (of course, I’d pay for them at check out!). This kept them busy while I shopped as quickly as possible!

Do you know how many “Bless your hearts” I got while out shopping with these two?! I sure miss those days.

Weekly Recap:

I was a busy blogger this week. Here are my posts:

What are you up to this weekend? Travis will be working quite a bit, but the rest of us don’t have as much going on. A Saturday with no sports…what is this life? The same can’t be said about Friday evening and Sunday afternoon! We’ll make the most of the weekend, I’m sure.

Thanks so much for reading.

  1. Same with the Kroger cart. I always got a “you’ve got your hands full!” Good memories! Mine got a bag of Cheetos – yeah, you win on the healthy aspect! Lol! I love your new Target shirt. It looks thin enough that it wouldn’t make me too hot at work. That outfit looks great!

    1. Haha yes. I got that a lot too. I still have my hands full 😂 it is pretty thin…not a hot flannel. Monday was the first day I wore shoes instead of sandals. I guess it’s time…


      1. I have been wearing shoes for awhile, just because I start to feel weird with open toes and my students are apparently adverse to teacher toes this year. Weird! I really need a couple more light flannels. I have a couple but they look pretty Christmasy.

  2. I do not miss those days of wrangling 3 kids around the store… it never failed that at least one was crying by the time we reached the checkout line. I heartily agree that the leaves do not last on the trees nearly long enough. Most of ours are already bare! I haven’t even started thinking about holiday reads yet… but I really need to read up the books in my basket so I can set them aside by Thanksgiving and dig into all the fun holiday reads.

  3. I loved Christmas in London by Anita Hughes as well- it was so good! I just ordered those two on Kindle. Debbie Macomber is my favorite go to for Christmas books. I also love Josie Silver! I like to read Christmas books starting in November, so I’m excited about the ones I have lined up. Have a great weekend!
