Happy Friday! 

We are such nerds, but we just started "Poldark" last night and are totally loving it. We found it on a whim on Amazon Fire and stayed up far too late watching. We'd recommend for anyone who loves any TV show based on history. 

Speaking of things on a whim, I bought this concealer on Amazon after reading that it does a good job concealing really bad dark circles and pimples. My body is finally starting to regulate after having a baby -- and therefore my skin is seeing the effects of it. {Oh, how I miss that pregnancy glow!} It's thick, but it really does cover well...and goodness knows, I need some coverage for these dark circles under my eyes -- and lovely pimples that have decided to pop up on my chin!

I'm in complete denial that Thanksgiving is in a mere three weeks. Our November is ridiculously packed, so I'm going to have to really plan ahead for the side dishes and desserts I'm going to take to my in-law's this year. But when I saw this Gingerbread Pecan Cheesecake, I knew it was on my list of things to make! Yum!

My best friend Lindsey, who I have known since before I can remember, sent Walker this book in the mail yesterday and he is OBSESSED. And can I just say that she has a little boy who is a year younger than Walker and twins who were literally just born and yet she can still send this to us?! She's super mom, y'all, I swear. I can barely remember to transfer my clothes from my washer to my dryer and she had enough thoughtfulness to send my baby a book that she knew he'd love. I'm so thankful for lifelong friends!! 

Our precious Knox is just that: precious. Now, I'm looking a bit rough here {it was 7 a.m., after all!}, but I took this picture because I always want to remember the way he lays his head on my shoulder after he finishes his bottle in the morning...almost like he's still waking up, too. I just love this precious boy and I'm so thankful that God chose us to be us parents and that he completed our family. 

 Linking up with: April, Andrea, Amy, Amanda and Katie


  1. I adore that photo of you and your sweet baby!! It's perfect! Hope you have a great weekend girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. That picture of your and Knox is so cute - you certainly don't look like it's 7 am! :) I can't believe Thanksgiving is already 3 weeks away either - it's crazy how fast this whole year has gone by - I mean, wasn't it just August?!

  3. Knox is so sweet with his snuggles! I wish I could snuggle with him!!!! Love that you found a good concealer! I hadn't heard of Poldark, but it sounds like something MG would like (and maybe me too)!

  4. That show sounds really neat! So sweet of your friend to send that book! So sweet how Knox is cuddling like that - Hope y'all have a great weekend :)

  5. Gingerbread pecan cheesecake - wow! Definitely need to be making that! Knox is too cute - I love watching your two boys - the sweetest!

  6. Of course we're both watching Poldark, as it was pitched to me as something to fill the Downton Abbey void. Season two is about half over, and it's gotten so good! (Also, Verity=Edith, amiright?!)

  7. What a sweet photo of you and Knox. I love Poldark! It is so great! Jess at Just Jess

  8. You and your sweet little one both look adorable!! And that cheesecake looks delish! Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

  9. SOLD on that concealer! Haha!! Lord knows us mamas need some good undereye coverage.

    My daughter just started laying her head on my chest and snuggling like that this past week...or when someone is holding her, and I take her back she does it. Melts my heart!
