I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a crazy fun week and am ready to keep the momentum going into the weekend. I wanted to start off today by sharing one unexpected little favorite that I’ve been thinking about all week…
…last Friday, when I was at Jamie Ivey Live, I had several sweet, sweet ladies come tell me how much they love reading my blog because they’re in the phase behind me and it makes them excited about the next chapter in life (meaning they were not married yet and/or don’t have any kids yet)…and do you know what I told them? THAT’S EXACTLY HOW I FEEL ABOUT SO MANY OF YOU!!!
I don’t think I’ve ever verbalized it, but please know, I LOVE getting the emails and messages from women in that next chapter of life (kids off to college, enjoying life at home in an empty nest). You ladies make me feel excited about the next chapter (while also helping me to remember to slow down and enjoy this phase too because I won’t ever get it back). I love hearing from you and being reminded that every phase can be fantastic…it’s what you make of it. I could name so many of you by name who really inspire me to work on my marriage right now while I have little kids at home, so that it’s in a good place when I have an empty nest.
So, anyway…I wanted to say thank you. I’m honored that those girls said I’m encouraging them, and I want so many of you to know, that you’re encouraging me too.
So, that’s my first fave 🙂 .
Happy Friday, friends!!
I just had to post this picture again…
…what you see here is strength, courage and beauty. We had a really raw and direct post-op appointment last week, and this girl had to have a big heart to heart with her daddy leaving the hospital about things we have to do to keep her safe and healthy…she’s tough, friends. She is so tough.
Okay, did you see my ETSY EVERYTHING post on Monday?! Wowzers!! Even if you read it earlier, go back and read it again because there are so many great shops mentioned in the comment section! I was floored!!!
If you own an Etsy shop or love one and want us to know about it, please go back to that post and comment there. I was so excited about this!
I randomly posted this picture on Wednesday…
I thought I could use this to plan out all sorts of weekly things (like maybe my meal plan???)…
I gave this to Kensington. I’ve told you guys for YEARS how writing down things I’m grateful for every day changed my life, well now, they have a journal to help with that. Look inside…
…I’m obsessed! Seriously, if you’re looking for holiday things (address stickers, wrapping accessories and more), head there too. Just a few new EC finds for your Friday 🙂 .
Oh my gosh, look at what Accessory Concierge is doing today…
…they reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to give my readers a 50% off promo code for blanket scarves.
Is that a trick question?
I don’t even know why they asked?!
I love to buy blanket scarves from Accessory Concierge in the first place, but now that they’re 50% off with promo code mixandmatchscarves, I’m going to be buying them as gifts too (I really like the Zana one).
I mean, isn’t that fun?
Another pretty scarf 🙂 . On Insta Stories today, I’m going to show you how I tie my scarves. I’ll post it soon. Head to see all the scarves HERE and use promo code mixandmatchscarves for 50% off! Happy early Christmas shopping 😉 .
…they’re SO LIGHT!!!!
You know how I keep wearing these like every single day…
…well, now, I have a second pair to swap them with. They’re both Nickel & Suede, so they’re both super, super light. I did a side by side so you can see the sizes (they’re really close). I bought both of them in the “small” size. They are so light. I LOVE THEM! Here I was wearing them to the fair this week…
…happy fall earrings 🙂 .
And last, but certainly not least…
Every year, I compile a list of my favorite spooky treats for Halloween and share them with you. From church events to school parties, get togethers at my house, pumpkin carving night and more, we are always looking for reasons to make Halloween goodies this time of year.

Okay, that wraps up this week’s Friday Favorites!
It’s October, friends! Go out and do something fall today!! xo
