Friday Favorites

It’s Fri-Day!  Yay!!

Erika and I left the house at 4:45 this morning and headed to the airport.  We are flying into Nashville just in time for the dotMom Conference to start this morning.  We are so excited about being there!  

Of course, today I’m linking up with Erika, Andrea and Narci and sharing my favorite things from the week.  I kept a little list on my phone this week of things that stood out to me as my faves…a random hot mess of things :). 
I did my Overnight Guest post this week and was so excited to read all of your comments!  You girls gave so many great ideas and suggestions for having overnight guests!  If you’re having guests this fall or holiday season, you should read back through the post and catch all of the comments.  Thank you so much to everyone that shared!!

Andrea did an excellent post yesterday on parenting.  She and I have had appoximately 8,592 conversations on potty training (because it was difficult in both of our homes), so I’m so glad she shared her story!  You can read it here.  My story is this, Kensington acted ready to be potty trained and so we began…but she clearly wasn’t and I should have gone back to diapers but I didn’t (because as a first time mama, I didn’t know any better)…and it ended up just making things more difficult on everyone.  Hindsight is a beautiful thing…too bad it didn’t help me potty train K ;).

Last Friday, I talked about how much I love Vince Camuto at Nordstrom and apparently, you guys do too!  I had so many sweet comments and emails about how you love his shoes because they have a great fit, you love his tops because they wear so well…lots of positive feedback!  
I had several of you email me that my black leather booties are no longer available…
…but I did see that they’re still available in grey and they’re also available in black suede
…these are identical to my leather ones, just suede :).  If you missed the first pair, I think you’ll love the suede too!
  I was bummed because the navy and red zip front shirts are sold out (the black zip front shirt is still available in all sizes) until a lovely reader named Alice emailed me about these brand new Vince Camuto Zip Front Shirts that apparently just came out and are available in five new colors :).
Thank you Alice!!  To see all five colors click here.
And for grins, here are a few other Vince Camuto shoes and tops that are really cute too…

Smith and I went grocery shopping the other day and I came home with all of this…my favorite part of this picture is the 101 comments from you guys on Instagram telling me how excited this stuff makes you too :).  I  just love that!  I love sharing my silly happiness over creamer and junk food with people that get it like you. XO  

In two weeks, I’m doing a Shade of Shay Part 2 on my love of scarves…because it’s true love!  I’ve been scoring some super cute scarves lately…
Apparently this year, I’m all about the plaid…

I’m totally in love with this plaid one.  It’s soft, cozy and infinity…I have a feeling you’ll be seeing me wear it in almost every picture this fall and winter.  
And when you’re not seeing me in this one, you’ll be seeing me in one of these…I ordered the second one this week and I know I’m going to love it…
Won’t these be so cute for the holidays?!?!  People…I am SCARF OBSESSED!  Such an easy accessory to throw on this time of year.  Click here to see a ton of cute scarves for under $25!
And on my foodie blog today…my Pumpkin Waffles.  These are the perfect weekend breakfast or brunch!
Have a great Friday friends!!

    I hope you two are already have a blast! Send lots of pics!!!!! And those VC booties? Yeah, those things are fierce!!!! (And you know how much I love and adore my vince camuto nude patent flats. LOVE!!!!)

  • Kelly @ Familiar Joy September 19, 2014 at 11:16 am

    We are kindred spirits I think. Scarves, cute bootiies, fall creamer, pumpkin anything, and the candy! Ahhhh! And by the way, it took me until baby #3 to finally figure out the whole potty training thing! I've still got one more kiddo to go, so I'm hoping it's as easy as it was with my last one. Cause the first two were not!! 😉

  • Narci September 19, 2014 at 11:47 am

    You girls have so much fun!! Also, those pumpkin waffles! Yum!!! Those sound delish!!

  • Natalie Zambreski September 19, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    Love love all the plaid scarves!

  • Tracy September 19, 2014 at 12:21 pm

    I love seasonal creamers too! One of my favorite things!
    Can't wait to try those waffles. Yum!

  • Kim Kauffman September 19, 2014 at 12:44 pm

    I saw those black booties in the store the other day and absolutely loved them. I'm not sure they would be super practical for me…I do lots of running around in about 8 months of rain (I'm in the Pacific Northwest) but I did just finally buy my first pair of booties! They are the cognac ones Sheaffer showed awhile back. Picking them up today! Have a great weekend away!

  • Rebecca Jo September 19, 2014 at 1:16 pm

    Those plaid scarves! I can wear one every day of the week!

  • midwestmom September 19, 2014 at 1:31 pm

    Please please don't make us wait 2 weeks for the scarves post!! They will all be sold out by then and that would be so sad for all of us. Love the new scarf and how you styled it.

  • Dana September 19, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    Oh my, I will definitely be making those pumpkin waffles! Have a great time!

  • Angela H. September 19, 2014 at 2:12 pm

    Just wanted you to know that the black t-shirt is by Vince, not Vince Camuto. They are different companies.

  • Aubrey September 19, 2014 at 2:39 pm

    Love the tartan scarves! I just bought one at a cute shop on our Prom!

  • ProudAunt September 19, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    Shay, those pumpkin waffles look divine! I will definitely be trying those. 🙂 And can't wait for upcoming topics – like hearing about your trip and scarves.

    Just as an aside – I loved this post: Point 3 under "Do we argue?" is just so perfect. Like you, this is how I like friendship to work – and I think it is really important to remember – never letting jealousy creep up!! Wise words!!!

  • Meagan September 19, 2014 at 3:56 pm

    I had no idea candy corn marshmallows existed, yum!!! have a great trip!

  • Haley @ Cupcakes and Sunshine September 19, 2014 at 4:07 pm

    I want all of the fall coffee creamers!!

  • Sarah September 19, 2014 at 4:15 pm

    I think I might be picking up on your scarf obsession! Seriously…so many cute scarves out there, so little time to wear them! Now I just need some cool weather. Yesterday was a cool 84° and I thought, hey it's not 100°, let's wear a scarf to work 🙂

  • Michaela Anne September 19, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    You are not helping my scarf obsession. It goes into high gear this time of year. LOL!! Love those booties too!!!

  • V @ X-tremely V September 19, 2014 at 8:27 pm

    Andrea's post was just what I needed since we are in the middle of potty training our little guy!
    All those fall goodies…YUM!
    And I am waiting impatiently for my plaid scarf to arrive!
    Hopefully when I return from Texas (headed there for the first time this weekend) it will be here 🙂

  • audra wray September 19, 2014 at 8:30 pm

    I am going to have to try your pumpkin waffles! And I am alllll about the plaid too!

  • Anonymous September 19, 2014 at 8:39 pm

    What color is your nail polish in the last pic. Its very pretty.

  • Paige Gingrich September 19, 2014 at 11:23 pm

    Love the scarves! I too have been drooling over plaid scarves lately. I found a scarf that reminded me of you 🙂 A bit pricey, but oh so cute!

  • September 20, 2014 at 12:48 am

    Those scarves are really cute! I need to pick up a few of them. Thanks for sharing!

  • Jessica Goodwin September 21, 2014 at 2:29 pm

    Would you share where your bag is from in the picture with the plaid scarf?

  • Susie September 21, 2014 at 7:26 pm

    Love the scarf

  • Anonymous September 22, 2014 at 1:18 am

    Can you tell where to find the cute plaid shirts? I've been wanting a few but haven't been able to find them any where.

  • motheroftwo September 22, 2014 at 1:26 pm

    Could you tell me where you got the bedspread in your guest room above….I love the pattern.

  • Mix and Match Mama September 22, 2014 at 6:51 pm

    The guest bedding is from Pottery Barn :).
