Woohoo! This first week of school has kicked our hineys, and we need a weekend. We are all so TIRED! My kids are not used to their back to school schedule yet…TGIF!
Today, I’m linking up with my favorite girls Narci, Andrea and Erikaand sharing some of my Friday Favorites with you!
When I posted this picture of us at the Louvre earlier in the week, I had several people ask me about my shoes. These are the Go Walks that I’m always talking about!! I cannot even begin to tell you how comfy they are and if you’re going on a trip anytime soon that involves walking, these shoes are for you. In Paris, we walked 7 to 9 miles a day and my feet never once hurt (and no blisters either!).
If you have a Disney trip planned, these will save your life :). I wear mine around our neighborhood every day (walking the kids to and from school, taking my kids out on their bikes and such). I love how they’re super simple to just slip on and you don’t need socks. #ilovethese My grey ones are new…up until recently, I’ve been wearing these pink ones…
…that I bought about three years ago. I wore them so much that I bought the grey pair too (this past July) for our new trip. Pink, grey…it doesn’t matter. They’re both so comfortable!
This was me on the first day of school on Monday…wearing my Smith necklace and my Kensington necklace :). I have an Ashby necklace too…but since the big kids were headed off to school, I wore their names. I love these little necklaces so much! I bought my mom one for Christmas that says Lovie and my mother-in-law one that says Nanny (their grandma names). These guys make great gifts :).
I have a confession to make. Only my friends and family know this.
I am secretly an 80 year old woman trapped inside this 33 year old body.
You’re shocked, right?!
My girlfriends and my parents would all tell you that I am a very old soul. Something else you might not know about me…but there is ALWAYS music playing in our house. Always. I turn it on right when I wake up (4:20 am) and don’t shut it off until 9:00 pm when I’m about to sit down and watch TV before bed. I don’t just turn on any music…I only turn on standards. (Now, you see why I’m obsessed with Michael Buble right…he sings standards.)
So, on Wednesday, when I confessed to be listening to Nat King Cole, I had many of you tell me that you’re old souls too. #oldsoulsunite
If you’re like me and you’re an old soul, you should also be listening to these two guys sing standards. First…
…Rod Stewart has five standard albums plus a greatest hits version and I may or may not have them all in CD form…and on iTunes. Look them up on iTunes! All of his standard albums are labeled The Great American Songbook1-5 plus that Greatest Hits album. You’ll love them all. Annnnnnd…if you love them, then you’ll also love this guy…
…Steve Tyrell. He produced all of the Rod Stewart standard albums plus…he’s the one who did all of the music for Father of the Bride. He’s amazing. I may or may not listen to his channel on Pandora every single day when I turn on my standards throughout my house. You old souls are going to thank me :).
…and, I went online and ordered these jeans…because well, as you can see, the shorts just aren’t going to cut it this fall ;).
Well, I’ve mentioned this before, so you guys know my cousin Casey owns her own bow boutique (hence the fab bows my girls are always wearing), and look what she gave me on Wednesday! Burlap bows for fall!
I need a moment.
I mean…how cute are they?!?!
So, to see the burlap bows, plus holiday bows, plus every single bow you’ve ever seen Kensington or Ashby wear (they wear XL Jumbo size), click here for One Stop Bow Shop’s website. My cousin is a mama to two girls (Paisley and Penley) and like the sweetest person EVER! Plus, her team makes the best bows :).
