Happy Friday!

Halloween parties, last minute costume prep, buying and eating all the candy - it must be the weekend before Halloween!!!  How many of you out there wish instead of October 31st that Halloween would always be the last Saturday of October?!  While we love Halloween, I'm not looking forward to Tuesday morning! ;)  But, before we get too far ahead of ourselves, here are a few of my FAVORITES from this past week!

This guy is definitely my FAVORITE!  On Sunday, we celebrated twenty years since the day he asked me to marry him!  Say what?!  How is that even possible since I'm still twenty-seven in my heart?! ;)  I love doing life with him and look forward to a lifetime of celebrating more anniversaries! 
 We celebrated again on Monday night since it was Mike's birthday!  Being all together as a party of five is one of my FAVS!  Mike and I both felt like our heads were on swivels trying to keep up with three different conversations but it was so fun hearing all the stories the kids were telling us!
Coconut cream pie is Mike's FAVORITE dessert so we made sure he had a slice for his birthday.  Meanwhile, the rest of us enjoyed ice cream cupcakes!  Yum!
FarmGirl Paints personalized cuffs
 It's no secret that FarmGirl Paints is a FAV.  I love to be surrounded by words that inspire and encourage and her cuffs are the perfect way for me wear something that is personal to me.  I love that each cuff is unique and one-of-a-kind!

 I went a little crazy this past time and ordered not one, not two, but THREE new cuffs!  #cuffaddict I recently finished reading Lysa TerKeurst's Uninvited and there were so many quotes I wanted to remind myself.

I also wanted to add some cuffs with color and think these definitely do that!

Love adding cuffs to my collection - and, look, there's still space to add more! :)
Red Ribbon Week theme days - dress up ideas
Theme days are my FAVORITE!  The girls both had Red Ribbon Week this week and have enjoyed dressing up each day!  So far we've had Crazy Hair Day, wore red and hearts, Neon Day, Twin Day, Super Hero Day, Team Color Day, and Cowgirl Day.  Today Holden's theme is Future Career Day and Hope is to dress for the red carpet!  Be sure and check out my Instagram to see what they pull together! 
These two are most definitely my FAVORITE!  It had been a while since we had gotten together to catch up so Katy proposed that we come over to her house Wednesday night after the kids were all in bed.  What a fantastic idea!  We shared a bottle of wine and just caught up on life.  A life I'm so blessed to do with them!  I couldn't help but smile on my drive home and thank God that he put these girls in my life!
I'm one of the Kindergarten Coordinator co-chairs which is a fancy term for party planner!  :) Tomorrow is our Kindergarten Halloween fall party and I can't wait for the kiddos to see these make-your-own-monster kits!  We've got lots of other fun activities for them too!  Follow along on Snapchat for a peak into all the fun!  Days like today are some of my FAVORITE days!

What's been your FAVORITE part of this week?  I hope it's been a good one!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an extraordinary weekend!

Gig 'em and God bless!
