Boy, did I need one.
The stomach bug hit kindergarten hard on Wednesday, so we were just on survival mode for 12 hours. Smith and 10 other kids got it (11 out of 21!). Thankfully, everyone got over it pretty quickly.
And now…it’s Friday! Woohoo!
As always, I’m linking up with my favorite girls today (Narci, Erika & Andrea) and sharing my favorite things from the week.
These are Kensington and Smith’s jack-o-lanterns from last year :).
I read in a magazine this week that you should sprinkle pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon inside your carved jack and then when you light your candle, it will make it smell like fall. Um, that is like the best idea EVER!
Side note, one year, I walked up to my parents’ house on Halloween night and my mom’s porch smelled like a coconut. When I asked her about it, she said the only candle she could find was a Bath and Body Works Coconut Lime scented one. I mean…nothing says Happy Halloween like coconut lime, right?!
For the last couple of years, my kiddos have all slept on these Christmas sheets from Pottery Barn each December…and more often than not, when I post a pic of them, they’re already sold out. Boo. Well, have no fear…they just became available for this year…so, if you’re one of those people who love Christmas sheets (a.k.a. my kind of people!!), then you should go ahead and get some now :).
Eeks! It’s Halloween sheets!! This year, PB Kids has Halloween sheets! All three Shull kids were super stoked when I put them on their beds this week :).
Um, last year, I told you guys about these leggings for bumming around. Well, they’re back at Gap. I bought blue fair isle design and a blue tank. I wear them around the house and when it’s colder, I might even throw my Uggs on and grocery shop in them. I mean…they’re such cute leggings and come in 8 different super cute patterns. Plus, they wash and dry really well! For a size reference, I bought XS in both.
And…right now, Gap is 40% EVERYTHING! Woohoo!!!

And since we’re on Gap…
…remember how three years ago I bought the Gap puffer vest and haven’t shut up about it since? Well, yeah…they’re out again and I’m still a huge fan! At 40% off, I’m a GIGANTIC fan! For a size reference, I bought a small puffer vest.
Every year when my September issue of Southern Living arrives in the mail, I know that fall has officially started. This just makes me happy and is totally one of my favorites :). Bonus, this year, this lady was on the back cover…
…I just love me some Reese!
Apparently today, I’m talking about things I love over and over again every single year…like this fringe scarf…
…that I bought two years ago and wore so much that I bought it in a second color and even wore it on my 2013 Christmas card…
…yeah, well they’re back and available in 7 colors. My friend Lori said this and it’s spot on…this scarf just styles itself. You loop it around you twice and it’s perfection every time.
And my final favorite of the day is life changing.
I’m going to go ahead and say this is life changing…
…friends, if you never make anything else off my recipe blog, please make this. My Apple Bacon Pancakes are out of this world. I’m talking blow your mind delicious. Your Saturday morning will never be the same if you make these babies.
Well, that’s it for Friday! I’m off to enjoy my weekend!! Have the best day!
