Happy Friday, y'all! We have had a full week of rain here in North Texas and I'm so beyond ready to see some sunshine! The meteorologists are forecasting some for Sunday (how appropriate!), so you can bet we'll be outside soaking that in later this weekend. But for now, let's get to it! 

I had been a complete obsessor of Herbal Essences "Naked" Dry Shampoo…until I tried Living Proof's "Perfect hair Day (PhD)" Dry Shampoo. I'm officially a convert! It smells amazing -- better than any dry shampoo I've ever tried -- and it apparently cleans your hair. (The verdict is still out on that one for me, and Brandon, who thinks it's ridiculously weird I go three days in between shampoos.) But, I love it and I don't know if I'll ever go back to another! It's worth every penny. 

Did any of y'all watch "Downton Abbey?" I'm so beyond sad it's over, but so happy for Lady Edith and yes, even Lady Mary after the series finale on Sunday. (Although I have no idea what we'll watch on Sunday nights now!) 

I was pregnant with Walker when Matthew was killed in the show, and now I'm pregnant again during the finale…holy moly, pregnancy hormones had me bawling during both of those episodes! 

This is a total Mom moment, but I'm obsessed with this nasal aspirator. Walker has had a gross cough and runny/stuffy nose this week, and it has literally saved our sanity since he hasn't quite mastered blowing his nose yet. He has hated the NoseFrida since the first day we ever used it, but didn't seem to mind this one, and for that I'm thankful. You know you're a Mom when…

It gets so ridiculously hot here in the summer, so one of my favorite "throw on and go" outfits are chino shorts and a soft, loose T-shirt. Well, Old Navy has done it again with their short-sleeve linen-blend boyfriend tees! I'm pretty sure I went a little crazy online on Monday buying these in every color. 

Since Liz is on Spring Break this week, we were so excited to hang out with her and her girls a bit! Walker and Liz's youngest daughter, Peyton, just adore each other. (Liz and I used to work together, and Peyton and Walker were born just two days apart at the same hospital, by the same doctor, and went to the same daycare together until I started staying at home.) Anyway, they kept saying, "Walker!" and "Pety!" to each other and doling out sweet kisses and hugs. They just adore each other, and I'm so glad I got to spend some time with my sweet friend! 

And speaking of Liz, she sent me Walker's two-year portraits yesterday and I'm absolutely OBSESSED with them! How am I ever supposed to choose which ones to print and hang in my house?! 

I hope y'all have wonderful weekends!

  1. I'm in LOVE with the Living Proof dry shampoo, too! I've used it a bunch this week and it's awesome! Hopefully it will help me get to the point where I don't feel like i have to wash my hair every day.
    Downton Abbey was wonderful. I'm so sad that it's over, but I love how it all wrapped up so well. And yay for Edith--finally! :)
    Walker is him!

  2. I loved that everyone seemed to get that happy ending, especially Edith for once. So fun you had such a great playmate and love lil man's pictures, he's so handsome!

  3. LOL to the snot sucker! I put the nosefrida one on my registry because I heard so many people rave about it but my husband has already told me flat out he will not be using it, so maybe I'll add this one you suggest too!! I haven't watched the Downton finale yet but heard it was amazing!! Can't wait to watch. Have a great weekend, girl!

  4. omg Walker's pictures... I die!!! That snot sucker HAHA you definitely know you're a mom when...

  5. Oh my goodness, Walker's 2 year pictures turned out adorable!! My mom & dad are currently binge watching Downton Abbey and she's dying for us to watch it. Unfortunately, my husband wants to watch LOST first lol

  6. Gorgeous photos! I'm loving those t-shirts, and I bet they are so soft!

  7. Walker's portraits are adorable!! Yes to Old Navy! I definitely did some damage there recently. Have a great weekend!

  8. I've heard great things about that dry shampoo! Love those Old Navy shirts! I'm basically having to rebuild my closet and some t-shirts like that might be perfect for the weekends! Walker's photos are gorgeous! I think you need to print them all :)

  9. Love the adorable pictures of Walker! And I'm going to miss Downton something awful, but I think they wrapped it up quite nicely.

  10. Oh. My. Goodness. Those photos are AMAZING. So sweet. I am already missing Downton too. I was a huge fan. I did see the Julian Fellowes is making a new show that is airing in the UK this year. I am definitely hoping that they bring it to the US if it is anything like Downton:

  11. Those are the cutest pics of him! My mom got me a battery-powered nose sucker when Kane was little and I loved it. I have that exact tee from Old Navy, and it's the perfect fit!I need a couple more.
