Worth the mention............

I have a sitter coming today to watch Taylor while little man and I go on a date. I cherish my one on one time with him so much. We are going to the movies, to get a haircut, and a trip to Target. Sounds just like a date with the hubs right? haha! We are going to see Frozen, and I am not sure who is more excited. Movies, popcorn, and little man holding my hand...yep sounds like perfection to me.

The other thing I wanted to tell y'all was I almost fell over when I saw what my girl crush was wearing yesterday!!! I mean does it get any more gorgeous than her face and that vest? Then I almost died all over again when I saw that the vest was from Loft, and that the entire store was 40% off. (Use code ENJOY to save).

Almost turkey time.........aka best sales ever

Happy almost Thanksgiving break! I am not going to lie, I am feeling kinda of brain dead today.
I always feel that way right before a holiday, so much going on. But really Thanksgiving day is pretty laid back for our little fam. It's the one holiday that we don't travel, and spend just the four of us. It's so bittersweet. I hate not seeing our parents and grandparents, but I love that we don't have to throw the kids in the car, and we get to fully relax here at home just us. Plus, Carson is really excited because we are going to put up Christmas on Friday, so much fun to watch it through their eyes.

So today, tomorrow and on Friday I plan to update you guys on all the good and I mean good sales! If you are a Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopper, then I am about to make it a lot easier for you ;) You know, find all the good stuff and highlight the best deals so you don't miss a thing! Speaking of missing, if you missed yesterdays late post go check it out. This store is way too cute to miss out on.

Our weekend.............

Ahh, we had another crazy, fun, and busy weekend!

On Friday night we hosted a small dinner party. I cooked Mexican, we drank tequila, and played the board game Dirty Minds! Need I even tell you it was a great time ;) 

On Saturday morning my brother dropped off his three kids. They were spending the night for the first time! Oh my, we had such a great time with them. Carson was pretty much in heaven the entire time. We took them to the Holiday Festival of Lights (they had never been) and it was so magical! Watching their little faces was priceless! 

And this is how we all felt come lunch time around Sunday. I thought this was pretty much the cutest pass out I had ever seen.

But our weekend fun was not over yet! We had plans to go eat "friendsgiving " with Carson's best buddy on his farm. Farm living is so relaxing and peaceful. We had such a great time, nothing beats a real fire and chickens running around ;) 

(I actually made the cornbread dressing, and I thought it turned out pretty darn good so I will post the recipe tomorrow.

5 on Friday

1. We are having a few friends over to our house for dinner tonight. Is it weird that I already have the table set? Do yo guys ever do that? I just don't like to be overwhelmed, and I am cooking, so that in itself is going to have me busy. And let's just be honest, I am very type A and like to have it all planned out. I am cooking Mexican, and plan on making these for an appetizer. 

2. This beautiful article  that all mothers (including soon to be moms) should read. It left me in tears and my heart feeling so full. It' so true how your life changes when you become a mother.
I love these two more than I could ever imagine.

3. Speaking of those two, I walked in on this the other morning. Luckily I always have my phone in hand, and I was able to snap this picture. Carson has been trying really hard to "play" and "teach" as he would say Taylor new things. It was really one of those moments that made my heart smile, and made me think, I must be doing something right. Or maybe I just got really lucky ;)

4) I found this blouse right after my Wednesday Wishlist post, or it would have definitely been included.
I mean how cool is the back, and I really adore that zipper on the front. Hello $38.00 well spent!

Wednesday's Wishlist............

I am 100% in love with this sweater. I mean how lovely is it? Plus it comes in four beautiful colors. Umm, and let's not pretend it doesn't look like a designer sweater. Pretty sure I just spotted an Equipment sweater that looked almost identical, well except the price tag ;)

Who wouldn't love to get these as a Christmas gift. I mean they are totally appropriate, yet sexy at the same time. They come in 7 fabulous colors, and I kinda want them all!

Can we first talk about the fact I still don't have a faux moto jacket, or a real one for that matter. This will not be the case after today. I bet you will have one too after you see how stunning and budget friendly the one I am about to show you is! And the reviews are pretty top notch too!

I get excited just thinking about this candle. I mean if you have never smelled this scent you are missing out big time. It smells exactly, and I mean exactly, like a real Christmas tree. I almost died when I saw the new all gold holder this year( that's the one I ordered)! Don't forget to use the code ShopRunner for two day shipping.

Hello most beautiful necklace I've ever laid eyes upon!! I mean can you even imagine all the things this necklace would go with, not to mention it's a total showstopper! Holiday parties here I come with some kick ass neck candy!!

On my mind.........

My heart aches so much for my sweet neighbor/friend. They just found out their sweet little boy's cancer is back. I can not even imagine the pain. I tear up every time I even think about it. They need our prayers so bad, so please pray for this special family.
We know you can beat this Mighty Mack.

We had a wonderful, busy weekend. We attended the most beautiful wedding. The view at the reception was breathtaking. As usual I had way too much fun, and I am playing catch up to get my energy back.

Way too much fun!

I am dying over these baby Uggs my mom just ordered Taylor for Christmas! I mean really why don't they make these in my size? 

I am struggling as far as the gym goes these days. You know when you're just "not feeling it". That is where I am right now. Ugh I have to change mindset on this stat! It always helps to get new workout clothes right? I've heard rave reviews on these pants, and I am dying to try them. Plus I am really digging the gray color and the mesh inserts. Totally reminds me of my lululemon ones!

And last because this is too funny and so too true!

Happy Monday plus a winner!!!

 I didn't get up at my usual 5:30 am to write this morning. So this means short and sweet as far as a post goes. I have two little needy ones that require my attention. 

But here's an inspirational thought for Monday. I'll be back tomorrow with some thoughts and pictures from our weekend.


And the winner is number 19 Keely! Congrats Keely, Ann will email you shortly, and get started on your painting.  Keely said............I would LOVE the Girls of Isle of Palms. Reminds me of my girls. Love to have a portrait or silhouette though too! Ann is sooo talented, all her work is beautiful!

Five on Friday...........

Throw your hands in the air, cause it's Friday baby! This may go down in the history for one of my busiest weeks yet! 

1) Carson had his first field trip this week at school. I was so happy I got the chance to tag along. As a kid, my mom always went on field trips with me, and it always felt special having her there. His class went to Middleton Place, and it was just beautiful. All the kids were so well behaved and they loved seeing all the animals!

2) Having lots of quality girl time this week. Between girls night, a birthday dinner, playgroup, and an art show tonight I have been one busy woman! Poor Todd got left with the babies solo almost every night this week. He's a trooper though, and the kids only gave him one rough evening ;)
 (he is probably reading this thinking keep your ass home woman and cook me some dinner). 

3) We have a wedding this weekend! Which means my parents are keeping the kids, can I get a whoop whoop!! I ordered this dress on Monday, so I hope it comes in by Saturday. I am not even sure I am going to love it, but it was only $38.00 so I figured I would give it a shot!
(but after all my dinners out this week I am up 6lbs, so I may need a looser fitting dress.)

4) Finally busting out my welly socks. I have been waiting on it to get cold enough to wear these cozy things with my Hunter boots for a while now. I wish I could wear them everyday, that's how warm and comfy they are! Don't forget the 20% off sale ends 11/17. Both the boots and socks are included in the sale. Use code BFAM at checkout.
