Hello friends and welcome to another edition of Friday Favorites! 

Let's kick it off with an "Oooooo y'all." 😂🤪😂 I'm so glad it's Friday. This week started off a little chaotic for me. Craig left last Saturday to head to Milwaukee to play in Donald Driver's annual charity softball game and golf tournament. (Craig and Donald were teammates when they were with the Packers.) But he didn't get home until Tuesday and of course, Monday just happened to be the day that we had everything. 🤪 Football practice plus back-to-back baseball games with one of the games overlapping football. It was "go go go" from the time they got off the bus at 4:50 (20 minutes late because of some crazy bus drama because of course, it had to happen that day...) until we got home at 10:30.

I won't bore you with all the details but I'll just say it takes a village, and I was so thankful for my village on Monday! We basically had a swift kick to the backside into our Fall schedule!


I have a quick list of Favorites for you today though so let's get to it!

Welcome FRIDAY!! We just survived our first full week of the new school year so today feels extra good! Baseball is back, football is back, homework, bedtime and early mornings are back, and daily showers are definitely back. Sorry boys...jumping in the pool no longer counts as a shower. 😉

Chuck loves mornings and having all 4 of us in the living room first thing in the morning is his favorite time of day. (Except when Matthew comes home from school. Did you see the video I posted on my IG stories last night of Chuck waiting for Matthew to get off the bus? Be still my heart.)

He hates watching them walk away though.

Both boys are loving their new teachers and each one already has a couple of favorites. Mason has transitioned to middle school seamlessly which I never doubted for a minute. That kid has no fear or anxiety about anything. He's loving the bigger selection in the cafeteria especially. 😂

Goodbye, Summer! Hello...ok well not Fall. Not yet. But hello, new school year!

 Right now our temps are soaring although they don't feel quite as hot as they have been in past years. We actually had a pretty mellow summer for Texas. I'm not even sure we've had any days over 100 degrees. (We probably have and I just chose to stay inside that day. 😂 Also, does talking about the weather bore you to tears? Yes? Ok, I'll move on.)
