Friday Favorites! October 28th

Happy Friday! Boy, I am glad to have this week behind me! 
Thanks to ErikaNarci and Andrea for the linkup opportunity!

Bear with me this week, the favorites are a little unusual.

Favorite #1

Bedtime...for the kids

We have had a rough week this week. So, I am keeping it real, and after the week with nonstop barky coughing, a head injury and two bloody noses, my favorite is bedtime! Mostly for the kids, but mine too! 

Please don't misunderstand. I love my kids. I love spending time with my kids. I just also like to see my husband and have a conversation with him where someone doesn't interrupt. Or need a bandaid. Or juice. Or some other completely fictional problem just for the sake of interrupting and recapturing our attention. 
I might also like to watch a TV show that isn't on Nick Jr. or Disney Junior. Don't get me wrong, those channels save my life/help dinner get on the table/get the laundry folded/get phone calls made on the regular, but I don't want to watch Peppa Pig all by myself. Although, I will say there are some new episodes of Max & Ruby, and I was shocked to see they have added parents to the mix now! Anyone else noticed that? Mind. Blown. It's about time those kids had some supervision. 

Anyway, yay for bedtime!

Favorite #2

My Mom

That lovely woman saves my sanity. She is frequently helping out around here. Just yesterday, my son told me that Granny is better at helping with homework than me. She is really our only babysitter, so when we need/want to go out, it's Granny to the rescue! I really can't say enough about her. She has tons of patience for my kids, when my patience escapes me. She is always at the ready to help whenever I need her. I am so, so grateful to her that she lives close enough to help and loves to do it! I am so lucky to have such a wonderful mom and my kids are even luckier to get to call her Granny!

Favorite #3

You ever have a semi online shopping spree one week, and the next week, you become best friends with your UPS guy or gal? That week was like that for me. So many of you other bloggers have had the cutest clothes! And there have been some good sales! 

I got several packages this week! I think my favorite delivery was from J.Crew Factory. I scored some cute plaid shirts, a scarf and a puffer vest. My very favorite was the puffer vest! I have never had one before, I was always hesitant. They reminded me of the 80's or something. But they have grown on me and I decided to give it a shot in the bleached sand color! Love it!!

Hope you all have a fantastic Halloween weekend!

  1. I absolutely LOVE my puffer vest. I have 3 of them and wear them on repeat. That beached sand color is going to be so versatile that you'll be able to wear it with just about everything.

    1. I could not agree more! Wish I hadn't waited to long to get one! Hope you had a Happy Halloween!

  2. Do NOT feel shame about enjoying bedtime! It's the only time I can get a second to do things I need to take care of!

    1. Thank you! And I agree! It's so hard to get much done with the kids around! Hope you had a Happy Halloween!

  3. LOVE that puffer vest! My UPS man used to be married to my cousin, lol. I see him waaaay more than my cousin, lol. So sorry you had a rough week, and relate to your feelings, sometimes just so happy when the house gets quiet at night, and mine are teens, lol. Have a great rest of your week.

    1. Thank you! You are too kind! A quiet house is very nice sometimes! And rare! Hope you had a Happy Halloween!
