Happy happy Friday, friends!
You guys, it’s almost OCTOBER!!!
Basically, my normal level of obnoxious happiness is about to get cranked up to an even higher volume for the remainder of the year.
Apologies in advance.
Okay, ladies, I have a new batch of FAVORITE THINGS from this week.
Light that pumpkin scented candle, grab that pumpkin spice latte and a slice of pumpkin bread and settle in. I’m linking up with my friends Andrea and Erika and wishing you a wonderful September into October weekend!
Y’all. Do you see this baby right here? I took this baby to get her driver’s permit on Tuesday.
I need someone to come over and hold me.
Last weekend, McKinney hosted our annual Oktoberfest which is always one of our very favorite traditions! I know you are all SO OVER ME TALKING ABOUT THE RECORD BREAKING HEAT but for the love, it was hot.
I won’t mention it again.
(At least not in this post.)
After a morning of sports and an afternoon of watching college football, the Shull six ventured down to our historic square around 4:00 for the festivities…
We basically ate our way through the evening 🙂 .
Of course, we had to stop and get their faces painted. This is always a Shull family tradition. Just look…
Where did all of those sweet babies go?!
They all grew up…
…Teen Boy was never photographed, but Teen Girl did make it into one pic. Halfway through Oktoberfest, we stopped at our favorite pizza pub for dinner before…
…venturing back out to play games.
Ha! I happened to catch it right when she got one in the red.
Such a fun (and this year sweaty…sorry, I couldn’t help myself) night with my family.
I found cozy dresses! I love THIS WRAP SWEATER DRESS because it’s soft (zero itch!) and comfy. It feels like being wrapped in a soft blanket.
I also love…
…THIS FLANNEL SHIRT DRESS too 🙂 . I bought both in xs.
Okay, I’m going to try not to sound super dramatic, but friends, I am OBSESSED WITH THESE JEANS…
They’re from the brand Wit & Wisdom that I talk about all the time (they make my very favorite pair of black skinny jeans!). I love this brand because, in my opinion, they’re made for us girls that like our jeans not to ride too high or too low, we like our jeans to have stretch but not get baggy after one wear, we want our jeans to wash and go into the dryer without any issues AND THEY’RE PRICED REALLY WELL! As a reminder though, I always recommend you size down one size when purchasing any pair of their jeans. I bought these in a 0 instead of my normal 2. This is what I wore on Tuesday: TANK, JEANS, SNEAKERS, off to the DPS I went with Kensington 🙂 .
Here’s another look at my sneakers. Plus…
I just really love these jeans 🙂 . They look cute with…

Brooke is a stay at home mom with three young boys who has a degree in fashion design from the University of North Texas, and she LOVES being outside in her garden. She created this pillow business to spruce up her patio for each season. I love, love, love me a seasonal pillow, but I especially love one for outside. You can see her Etsy shop HERE!
