Friday Favorites

Friday, August 28, 2015

Happy last Friday in August! I mean.. how did that happen?! We've had a rough week over here, I think Rowan is allergic to sleep (ha!) between the hours of 4:30 AM and 7 PM, so my favorites today are going to be short and sweet!

New Rug + Booties

Rug. Booties (Taupe sold out, similar)

Y'all I love our new rug for our guest room! The colors are even prettier in person. Its pretty thin so I wouldn't recommend it for a high traffic area, but its super soft! And no, we haven't had any boot weather here in Charleston yet (insert grumpy face emoji) but the cooler temps up North made me super over the summer. I can't wait to break these booties in with some skinny jeans and a cardigan!

Funfetti Cookies

I'm not sure if there is a greater invention than funfetti cupcakes, but funfetti cookies are right behind them. I just used the box cake mix with 1/3 cup of vegetable oil and 2 eggs. So easy and perfect for my sweet tooth. Now if only I got this excited about the veggies I also purchased! 

Emily Ley: "3 Steps to Overcoming Overwhelm"

Wearing multiple hats (mom, employee, wife, blogger, etc) has taken its toll on me the last few weeks, and its easy to get overwhelmed. Making time to take care of myself and do what I love (i.e. blogging or working out!) has not been a priority, so Emily Ley's post really hit me. It might seem like obvious advice but it really helped to read it! Highly recommend!

Mini Me


Rowan looks so much like me in the photo above, I can't get over it. I still see a lot of my husband at times too though, I think he's a really perfect mix.

Festive PJs


Y'all I can't help myself... I'm already stocking up on festive pajamas for Rowan. I picked up these and these, now I just have to hope I guessed his size right! Holidays are going to be so much fun this year!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Linking up with April and Christina!

  10. Love the rug! I totally went and spied those booties at my Nordstrom. They are so cute!! You should check out Hanna Andersson for holiday pajamas. The sizing is a little odd (European) but really cute stuff. Nordstrom carries some of it too.
