Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! 

I blogged earlier this week about our quick trip to Scottsdale for our anniversary. You can read all about it here. It was such a fun time and was just so beautiful! 

Yesterday I shared my favorite fall looks; you can read that post here! I'm sure thankful of this semi-fall weather we've had here in Texas this week and am praying it stays around for a while so I can wear some of my fall wardrobe. 

Brandon took the day off work on Monday so we could have a special family day -- and we went to the State Fair of Texas! It was Knox's first time and it was so much fun. We got the picture with Big Tex, of course, and then rode tons of rides before visiting the farm animals and grabbing a funnel cake. It was the most perfect day, too, which made it even more fun. And the boys came home and took epic naps. ;) We can't wait until next year! 

Knox recently had a completely horrible diaper rash that was nothing that Walker had ever had before. It was so red and bless his little heart, he had two little blisters on his bum and would just scream, shake and cry every time we changed his diaper. A girl from church recommended this diaper rash cream and while I was hesitant at first {I'm loyal to Triple Paste} -- it worked wonders! I had never heard of it before she recommended it, but I will always have a bottle on hand moving forward until he no longer wears diapers. This is definitely a mom recommendation! #momlife

I am pretty darn obsessed with matching holiday-themed jammies for the boys, so when I saw these on sale at Old Navy last week, I had to scoop them up! Old Navy has been knocking it out of the park with their 30-40% off sale prices lately. Can't wait to have the boys open up this pair on Christmas Eve! 

Linking up with: AprilAmanda, Andrea and Katie


  1. totally getting that diaper cream paste, I am a triple paste fan but love trying new things! I too love holiday themed jams. Christmas ones may be my favorite, definitely ordering these asap!! Our state fair is going on right now and i'm not sure we will get there. Patrick and I had our first date at the state fair and I'm not sure we've been back since... I'm dying to go! Have a happy friday, friend!

  2. The amount of holiday themed jammies in this house is already a little bit out of control this year. I just can't help myself! I bought THANKSGIVING themed ones the other day! Slightly embarrassing lol. So much fun catching up on your blog this morning! Your Scottsdale trip looked like a dream and the boys with that funnel cute! Knox is VERY busy ;) Hope you all have a great weekend!

  3. I've always wanted to visit Arizona and your trip looks like it was a fun time! The state fair looks like it was a great time too! Sierra ~ Beautifully Candid

  4. Your Monday family day looked like perfection! Are you guys the most picture perfect little family or what? :) Happy Friday, love!

  5. The Calmoseptine has saved our life many times! It was recommended to me by a nurse when my youngest was in the NICU right after he was born. I only wish I'd known about it earlier with my older son!! Must go check out Old Navy now. I wonder if I can talk my 8 year old into wearing matching jammies???? :)

  6. I haven't been to our state fair in a few years but I'm definitely taking Vivi next year! Those pjs are soooo cute oh my gosh!

  7. We lived in Scottsdale for 6 years (I went to ASU!) and I love that city. I met Clint there after all. It's such a great idea to go for an anniversary trip, I may steal that :) Have a great weekend!

  8. The state fair is so fun, and I haven't been in several years. I need to make it a priority next year! (We're in Houston.) I can't wait to click over to see what you wrote about the Scottsdale trip. Stopping by from friday favorites...have a great weekend! Tanya - The Other Side of the Road

  9. I love the pictures of your boys at the fair; they look like they are having a great time!

  10. Those Christmas jammies are so precious!! I love all of their jammies! So much fun y'all were able to go to the State Fair together on a Monday!
