Five on Friday!

Happy Friday y'all! I'm linking up with Darci and the other girls today! It's been a fun week and I'm excited about a full and fun weekend we have ahead of us! I'm headed to the salon in a little bit for some MUCH NEEDED mama time. Then we have a preschool movie night at church tonight, a birthday party for a sweet little 3 year old tomorrow, Samford homecoming, and other fun things planned. So, here's some happy randoms...

Last week I jumped on a [very early] plane and flew to Dallas to surprise my sister! When they scheduled an induction for Baby Lincoln I just HAD to be there. John was SO SUPER AWESOME and took off work to stay with the minis. Loved begin able to get a way for a few days without being mom. So fun!

Plus, HELLO CUTENESS! How stinkin adorable is my new nephew?!?! Whitney was a CHAMP and delivered a chunky 8 pound 11 ounce bundle of LOVE.

Y'all. Emma James has been wearing bows for THREE DAYS! Around 6 months she started ripping them off of her head as quickly as I put them on. I kept trying for several weeks and then just gave up. Every once in a while I would try but of course she would rip it off. While I was out of town last week John said that he put a bow on her [ dad ever] and she kept it in for a long time. So I decided to start "training" her to wear bows again. And it's working! She's worn a bow pretty much all day for the last 3 days. Proof...

I adore fall/winter clothes on my minis. We went to lunch on Wednesday with John and since they looked so cute and fall-ish, I decided to have a mini photo shoot in the backyard. It is SO difficult to get a decent picture of them when they won't look at the camera/phone at the same time. BUT, a photographer friend of mine gave me some AMAZING tips that I can't wait to try soon. Just as soon as my ankles heal a little more and I can squat down to take better pictures of them. 

My sweet friend, Erin, sent Emma these ADORBS Minnetonka booties from J.Crew. They are to die for.

And for a little Friday humor...this CRACKS me up! Love me some bacon. Oh...go get the Applewood smoked bacon from Trader Joe's. Thank me later.

Have a great weekend y'all!!

  4. Emma will wear bows. Don't worry. This weekend Hadley told me her bow wasn't in (it was). I reminded her it was in, and she said, yeah, but it needs to hug me. So, I tightened in her hair and she was fine. : )
