Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! 

How was everyone's Valentine's Day? We were basically celebrating all week: Knox and I made Emily's Valentine's Day Snack Mix together on Tuesday and I got a ton of stuff done for Walker's class Valentine's Day party that day, too. Wednesday, we had a sweet little day: Bible Study in the morning, lunch at Chick-fil-A with our best friends afterward, and a fun day at home to round out the day. Brandon grilled steaks, I made Ina's spinach gratin, and my mom's "Chocolate Yum Yum," of which I'll share the recipe next week. :) Walker had his class Valentine's Day party yesterday and it was so cute. Here are some pictures from our week:

Brothers on Valentine's Day!
(Knox's shirt is old from Smocked Auctions and Walker's is Old Navy, but it's sold out online)

Did you catch my post (or I should probably say, "novel") on Wednesday about my journey with Invisalign? You can read it here. Thank you to those of you who left me encouraging comments; y'all are the sweetest and the best! This is definitely a marathon and not a sprint -- and I have to remind myself of that daily. 

Walker said the funniest thing at Sprouts on Monday that I had to share here, too. 

I had to go in for two items and one of them was steaks to have Brandon grill on Valentine's Day. As we were passing through the meat section, he saw all the fish sitting there on ice. And then he proceeded to yell out loud for all the store to hear: "Mommy! Who is the mean guy who killed ALL THESE FISH?!?!" (Please note we aren't vegetarians or vegans or anything of the sort, so I'm not sure where he heard this?) People around us starting cracking up and I was half laughing, half mortified. 

And then, as we were checking out, he asked the lady ringing us up: "Ma'am, what does 'cray cray' mean?" Again, not something he heard from me! 

Out of the mouths of babes! 

I've shared the love on these before, but since I just had to order some more for the boys, I thought I'd share again! :) So many socks fall off of my kids' feet and have since they were newborns, and these are the only ones that stay on their feet -- and hold up well in the wash without getting pill-y. My friend Liz told me about the goodness that are Jefferies socks and I have been buying them for four years. Y'all need to get these for your kiddos! 

Is anyone else planning to do a little shopping with the upcoming President's Day sales? I'm so tired of anything long-sleeved and am dying to scoop up some cute spring clothes. I saw this dress at Old Navy and am planning to see if it goes on sale this weekend and grab it. It's so cute! 

I also thought this one was super cute, too! Clearly I'm loving chambray right now. ;) 

I hope y'all have fabulous weekends!
