Friday Fall Favorites
Pumpkin patches + adorable kids – is there anything better? I think not.
Corey’s school puts on the most adorable pumpkin patch every year with themed pumpkin displays, a slide made out of hay, and even a bicycle ride. It’s adorable! Just look at that sweaty little man trying to pick up all the “bigg puunnkiiinnnns!” He kept saying, “I stwong Mama!” Gahhhh. I just love that kid + this time of year. Simply the best!
Now, if only Houston would jump on board. This friggin’ weather is ridiculous. 87 and feels like 98 with humidity. Gross. At least the puppy and the kid enjoy it!
There was ONE day this week that was actually cool enough to dress “fall” like. I grabbed my leggings and plaid shirt faster than Lucy swipes the football from Charlie Brown.
I wanted to share a few of my Fall Favorites on this Fabulous Friday the 13th! I like alliteration, can you tell?
Here we go!
Favorite Side Right Now: Cauliflower Rice 2.0
We had it this week with a little Taco Tuesday Bowl – ground beef taco meat, roasted veggies, avocado, tomato, cilantro, and slow-simmered black beans (recipe coming soon). The whole bowl was only about 470 calories and still super filling + delicious.
Favorite Nail Color Right Now: Dark Hunter Green – like almost black. I’ve found that pure black looks pretty boo-boo on my skin, so I went for a dark green and I love it! I’m still all about that dip manicure, too. It lasts forever (even with all my cooking, dishes, LAUNDRY, and everything else). I also think it’s a lot better for your natural nails than gel manicures. Try it if you haven’t yet!
Favorite Clothes Right Now:
These jeans are everything (okay, they call them pants, but whatever… to me they’re jeans). They don’t stretch out too much throughout the day, and that ab-solution band really holds and tucks things that need holding and tucking if you know what I mean. Plus, they come in some super cute colors!
These fellas are worth the money. They hug places that need to be hugged and still feel super comfy. I wear these bad boys with the Target t-shirt below as my daily Mom Uniform. They still makes me feel cute while being able to be functionally mom-ish.
THIS T-SHIRT RIGHT HERE! I can’t even. The v-neck is a great length (not too high and not so low that you show your goodies when you bend over for that dropped bunch of Goldfish) plus the sides and back are great lengths, too. I love to wear mine with the jeans above, but also with leggings.
Favorite Movie Right Now:
(No explanation needed – it’s awesome + Corey loves it)
Favorite Halloween Garb Right Now: This adorable shirt from Magpie’s Gifts in Cypress. Baseball tee + Halloween + the word Y’all. I’m sold.
Music class is always fun with this chubby bunny. No idea why my face looks like a hot mess, but he’s too cute. I had to share his joy.
Have I mentioned that my kid is IN LOVE with his music teacher? He literally stares at her like this for the ENTIRE music class. It’s adorable, but also, dude I’m paying for you to sing + dance. Not drool over your teacher.
Okay, I forgive you. You cute.
What are YOUR favorite things for fall (or in general) right now?
Cheers to the weekend, y’all!
