Friday Favorites {#134}

Hello and Happy Friday!

How was your week? We had a really good one that included Halloween, volleyball, school and more!

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

Here are some favorites from the week:

A few fun favorites:

Last Friday, I went to see Heather McMahan’s live taping of her show for Netflix. We’d gone to see her back and January, and were excited to go again. We all met at our friend’s house for carryout Mexican food and drinks. Then, we went downtown for the show. The show was a mix of the material from January as well as some new material too. It was a great evening!

Since it was a taping, we couldn’t have our phones out during the performance. Heather looked stunning, and she snapped a photo with the audience at the end.

On Saturday, Hadley went to Great Wolf Lodge with a group from school. She had so much fun.

Halloween Fun:

While we were at the Heather McMahan taping, Hadley and the Student Council were hosting a haunted house. It was quite the success.

Look at my zombie volleyball player! haha

My brother’s kids made some sweet treats for us and dropped them off on Saturday.

We had our “spooky dinner” on Sunday night. I made mummy dogs and brains for dinner…with a side of eyeballs.

Halloween on a Monday should always be a hard no….but it was a great evening. The weather was perfect. Hayden threw on a jersey at the last minute to be a football player while Hadley was a construction worker with her friend.

Hadley and friends ran around the neighborhood together while Hayden and his friends did the same thing. They scored so much candy that it’s ridiculous!

Travis and I hung on the front porch to pass out candy. Honestly, I had a moment of sadness when I realized the last time I sat on the front porch and passed out candy was 2009 when I had a very big pregnant belly. This time has gone by in a blink, but I’m glad the kids were close by and had fun with their friends.

I went to grab a cup for my wine and laughed at my choice! While it’s a Christmas sentiment, I think it applies to Halloween on a Monday!


Hadley had her first volleyball game this week! Volleyball is one of my favorite sports to watch, so I’m definitely looking forward to watching them this season.

She’s having fun with friends which is definitely a bonus.

Favorite Mom Meme:

This made me laugh way too hard…

Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday:

This throwback to 2013 is one of my favorite photos. So sweet and festive for Halloween.

Weekly Recap:

Here are my posts from the week:

What are your weekend plans? We don’t really have anything tonight, but tomorrow Hayden has a cross country meet, and then Travis and I will spend the day at Keeneland for the Breeder’s Cup. I’m one of the weird ones who loves the time change (in the fall), and I have feeling I’m going to need that extra hour of sleep by Sunday!

Thanks so much for reading.

  1. Aww! So much fun! I have started listening to Heather’s podcast and she really makes me lol! I love Great Wolf Lodge. I’m the mom that was doing all the activities with my kids because it’s so fun there!
    I know – Halloween brought up so many bittersweet memories for me, too. It is just so much more fun for us when our kids are in the sweet spot of elementary school. I love their costumes and the student council event is awesome!
    Have so much fun at Keeneland! I’m jealous! I want to do a Churchill Downs outing in November since I missed October at Keeneland.

    1. Heathers podcast is funny. I wish I had more time for podcasts. It’s definitely a bittersweet time for sure. I’m looking forward to tomorrow. I hope the weather cooperates! November at CD is fun too!


      1. I listen to them when I am cooking or cleaning or walking usually. I don’t have much driving time lately which is a good thing! I need to plan my day at CD!


  2. And all of my teacher friends said amen for it being Friday after a week that began with Halloween. It’s so bittersweet when the trick or treating stops, or when they start going with friends. All is as it should be, but those years go by quickly. I always say that I hope I know I was in the prime days of parenting when going through those years…I think I did know that, but I hope I enjoyed them all to the fullest.

    I can’t wait to hear about Keeneland next week. Have a great weekend!
