Friday Favorites

Friday, September 5, 2014

Change of plans! I am going to leave you in suspense of how the jeans fit for one more week and link up for Friday Favorites with Andrea and Erika instead! I have been really busy the last few days getting ready for a baby shower that I am hosting. And last night I stayed up late finishing up a few things. So I never had time to prepare my How the Jeans Fit Friday post and this morning, I am being lazy and don't want to try the jeans on and take pictures! I won't be able to finish before I need to start the school day grind. What I will say though is that it was a great week! My steps are back up over 10,000 each day and my eating was good except for a few treats!

#1 Back to School

I love back to school time! I love making it special for Olivia, Owen and I have had a great week, and each day at 3, I am excited to go pick Olivia up and hear all about her day. Listening to her talk about school, she sounds so grown up and it makes me smile every time!

#2 Pumpkin Lattes

I have to wait until at least September 1st to drink anything pumpkin, but then after that I start frequenting Starbucks and Dunkins for a yummy latte! Yesterday was my first one. I had an Iced Pumpkin Mocha Latte from Dunkin Donuts. I went iced because we are having far from fall weather around here and it was hot! I will look forward to cooler weather and a Pumpkin Spice Latte from the Starbucks near Owen's preschool. I often will stop if I am a few minutes early to pick up Owen and enjoy it in the parking lot while I wait to go in!

#3 Fall Décor

I love to decorate my house for the holidays. Now that the house is "finished" I have started building up my décor based on where I have space to put it. Check out a the few things I have started to decorate so far!
Love having the counter space to decorate!
A little fall mixed in with my Willow Tree Figures!
Love my new owl, I got it yesterday at Home Depot!

I change out these vases next to our living room built ins for each season!

I printed this Subway art for free! Love it, and plan to switch this out for each holiday and season! Find it HERE

#4 Early morning time

This week Tuesday-Thursday, I have gotten up each morning at 5am. It has been wonderful. I have had at least one hour before the kids get up. I have walked on the treadmill while I read my book. I have worked on the blog, showered and got myself ready before I start moving the kids along. I have started laundry early in the day and just overall feel more motivated! It really has been a great week! Today I will admit, I slept until 6am. I was up late last night getting ready for a baby shower that I am hosting this weekend and I turned off the alarm. I look forward to continuing this because it has made such a difference in how I feel throughout the day!

 #5 Divergent

I had placed a hold on the book, Divergent, on my tablet through our local library and I finally got it! I LOVED it! You only have 14 days to read it before you have to return it and because other people are waiting for it you can't renew it. I didn't start reading the book until I had only 5 days left, but let me tell you, I couldn't put it down, I finished it with 17 hours to spare before it disappeared off my tablet! Now I am number 48 out of 50 holds on book 2 and I don't know if I can wait! I might have to purchase it!
That's it for Friday Favorites! Off to get the kids moving along! Have great weekend!

  1. Happy Friday! Stopping by from the Momfessionals Link Up. I love your fall decor! And I totally agree about the early morning time, it's the best when you wake up before the kids are up!


I would love to hear your comments and suggestions...
