Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! 

Did you catch Jessi and my Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide post on Wednesday? We shared an all-in-one gift guide with ideas for men, women, kids, and teachers/hostesses. You can see Jessi's gift guide here and mine here

Is there a specific gift guide I missed that you'd like to see? (Stocking stuffers, etc.) If so, let me know in the comments and I'll work on that for you! 

Walker had his Thanksgiving feast at school on Wednesday, and I loved eating with that little turkey. Preschool Thanksgiving feasts are seriously one of my favorite things. (His shirt is from Old Navy last year. I usually try to buy ahead post-holidays since it's so much cheaper!) 

We have had an unusually random November cold front this week, and for a few days, the highs weren't above 30 degrees (and the wind chills were 17 degrees)! This is very weird for North Texas in November, so I was frantically trying to pull out our hats, gloves and thick jackets. And yes, I realize we sound like wimpy southerners with thin Texas blood when I say that, but I guess I'll raise you our 100+ degree humid summers. ;) 

Anyway, the boys thought it was so cool to get to wear hats and gloves on the playground, and Walker even asked me if it was going to snow. It didn't, but I sure wish it did! 

Today is your last day to enter my Smile Brilliant giveaway! It takes two seconds to do: just click this link, type your name and email address in the boxes and you're entered to win! I'll be sure to announce the winner here when one is chosen. As a reminder, it's $149 value to Smile Brilliant, which is the cost of their T3 Sensitive System. It's the perfect time to get those pearly whites for the holiday season!

I'm going to be taking a blogging break next week to spend time with family and enjoy my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving! (I love it: getting to spend time time eating and drinking with family without the added pressure of gifts; the best.) Lord willing, we will put up the Christmas tree tonight and take our family portraits tomorrow evening for our Christmas cards. 

And, because I'm sappy, here are my boys last Thanksgiving; man, how time flies!

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! See you next Monday, Nov. 26!

  1. Oh my gosh - Knox has grown up so much since last Thanksgiving! I always love seeing the fun school events with the boys and we got snow yesterday - the cold all around needs to wait a little bit!

  2. Christmas tree tonight? And my how the boys have grown in a year. Smart idea about buying ahead for next year, if only I knew what my kid would wear, lol.

  3. We will be getting our tree up the day after Thanksgiving, so ready! Somehow some of the same clothes from last winter still fit Bowen this year, apparently I bought them big. Either way it's a win!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving! We did get snow this week... and wished we hadn't! LOL.
