Friday: Last One for September

Happy Friday! 

Brandon is coming home today after being gone since Sunday. Cue the Hallelujah Chorus because this mama is tiiiiiiii-red.

I was shopping for the boys on Wednesday night, trying to find them each a light jacket with a hood {because let's face it, we don't need giant winter coats that often in Texas}. And while I found them {here and here}, I also had to pick up a few things for myself, right?! Special thanks to Old Navy's 40 percent off the entire store sale for making me poorer. ;) 

Now that it {finally} feels like fall outside, I'm totally gung-ho about anything and everything autumn-related. Give me all the pumpkin patches, boots, long-sleeved shirts, pumpkin spice candles and delicious treats!

With Brandon gone this week, I wasn't following the Cambridge's Canadian tour as closely as I would have liked, but I did sneak a glimpse at a few photos on Twitter. And y'all, OH MY GOSH, did you see the precious See by Chloe cream dress she wore to the Garden Party at British Columbia's Government House?! I'm in love!!! 

{And I love how sweet and Southern she dresses Prince George and Princess Charlotte in all of that smocking, Peter Pan collars, knee-high socks, and the like.}

Yesterday, Walker was completely on a super sweet kick and it just made my mama heart melt. 

First, Knox was crying in his swing and I was getting ready to walk over and pop his paci back in. Before I could get to him, Walker rushed over and gently put his paci back in his mouth, and then started saying in a soft, sweet voice, "Shhhhh, shhhhhh, Baby Knox. It's okay. Shhhhh, shhhh." Y'all, I totally started crying happy tears at my sweet big boy.  

Then, we were playing outside enjoying the beautiful weather. Walker saw our sweet mailman -- who has been our mailman since before he was born -- coming down the street. Now, Walker listens for him every. single. day, and most days, goes outside with me and gives him a high-five. Anyway, yesterday Walker said, "Mommy! Can we give him a cookie?" I agreed and we quickly ran inside to get him one. Walker delivered it to him and our sweet mailman was SO excited! (And Walker was equally as excited to sit and "drive" in his truck.) I love Walker's sweet heart and hope he always shows this much empathy to and for others! 

Linking up with: April, Amy, Andrea and Katie  


  1. Yay for your hubby coming home. I'm finding it makes the weeks my husband travels seem much longer now that we have a little one. I am loving that Old Navy lace hem top. Totally going to add it to my closet! Happy Friday!
