Friday: First One for September

Happy Friday! I absolutely cannot believe it's September...but it most certainly doesn't feel like it with our 90*+ temperatures in Texas. All of my Northern friends posting about your cool mornings and your cute kids in their fall clothes...and we're over here in tank tops, shorts and ponytails -- and will be until early October. Ha!

But weather aside, here's a few of my Friday Favorites this week:

Brandon and I have a date night planned for this weekend, and even though we're just grabbing dinner, I'm excited about some time away. Although I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous about leaving Knox with a babysitter for the first time. Tell me I'm not the only one who gets this way?!  

My mother-in-law was telling me yesterday how her favorite dry shampoo was discontinued, and my sister-in-law mentioned she had never used a dry shampoo {WHAT?!}, so I quickly told them about my very favorite dry shampoo. It's definitely expensive, but it's so worth it. Do any of y'all use this stuff?  

I'm still binge-watching "Blue Bloods" thanks to Kelsey. I am so obsessed! I've been totally slacking on my daily workout this week and instead watching two episodes as I fold laundry while the boys are napping. The show totally makes me want to move to New York City and be a member of the fictional Reagan family! Or at least always have a big Sunday dinner.

I saw this article shared over on Dallas Mom's Blog, and I laughed at how true it was. I read it on Monday night, the same day a fellow mama practically yelled at her teenage daughter to open two doors for me as I was trying to exit Walker's dentist appointment dragging a toddler and pushing baby in a stroller -- and carrying a diaper bag, and trying to juggle the 5,001 pieces of paper they give you, along with Walker's goody bag and balloon animal. Thankful that "Momalvry" isn't dead! ;)

Walker is most definitely at a super fun age, and he's getting more and more excited about Christmas this year -- telling us that "'Ho Ho' is gonna come down da fireplace." Of course, he thinks this is going to happen tomorrow, but we're working on that. ;) Anyway, it's just so adorable and it made Brandon and me talk about how innocent and exciting Christmas is to little children at this age. I vividly remember not being able to sleep on Christmas Eve I was so excited for Santa to come! I'm definitely excited to see Christmas through his eyes this year. {Although I'm by no means wishing for it to get here soon!}
