Fall Favorites

*This post contains affiliate links 

Hello FRIDAY! This was the kids first full week back in school. When my kids start back to school, I automatically think it should be FALL!! Am I the only one?? I have had FALL fever all week so I thought I would share a few of my FALL FAVORITES! Signs of Fall are starting to show up in stores, a few leaves are starting to FALL! It makes me want to crank down the AC and start a fire 😉 Anyone else have Fall Fever??

Back to School

The kids have been back in school for one week today! I can't believe it! So today I thought I would share a few of our BACK TO SCHOOL Must Haves!! 


All because TWO people fell in LOVE!

I can't believe that my nephew, Eric is married much less going to be a FATHER in 4 MONTHS!! It feels like he was just born a few years ago. Now,  he is all grown up with a with a family of his own. 

Eric and Candance got married on July 15th, 2017 at 5 pm in Pigeon Forge, TN! 
It was a beautiful ceremony but boy was it HOT! 

Eric asked me to take some pictures for them. I had to remind him that I am NOT a professional photographer but I would do my best!! 

So here are some of the moments that I captured! I gave the bride the SD card with over 600 pictures on it! 
WARNING: LOTS OF PICTURES! 

The Groom and Groomsmen

Friday Favorite {Bar Cart}

One thing I love the most about blogging is the friendships that I have made. I cherish those friendships so much. But another reason I love blogging is the inspiration from decorating to fashion.... when Lindsay mentioned that she had purchased a bar cart a "lightbulb" went off for me. I have been wanting to rearrange/remove a few pieces of furniture. I knew I wanted to remove the cabinet in the dining room because it was just too hard to get around the table. That was when I knew a bar cart would be perfect in the corner next to my china cabinet.

Today, I am sharing my new FAVORITE piece of furniture along with a few FAVORITE essentials.


Lake Life and Loving It!!

Saturday we got out on the lake early because rain was predicted for that evening. The Smith's joined us. 


The kids LOVE to tube.




Their facial expressions crack me up! 




getting brave. 



They switched tubes. 




Sweet girls



Our handsome captain.




After tubing for a while, we went to Ben's bosses dock to eat lunch and swim. 


They love jumping off his dock. 




Love my Stephanie.

After playing on the dock, we rode over to visit some friends! 



All the dads took the kids out tubing. 
They had a boy boat..


and a girl boat! 

We pulled the boat out of the water right before the bottom fell out of the sky! 


We saw a rainbow pulling into our neighborhood! 

Sunday, we were up early again to hit the lake!! 

This time Talia and the boys joined us!! 


Talia and I have been besties since middle school! 


3 boys ready to tube! 

Noah, Ian, and Toby



Ben was DETERMINED to make them fall off....


He succeeded! 


Talia's uncle also Ben's boss driving the other kiddos around 


Ella, Shannon, and Jesse





another one bites the dust....



It was SO hot, so I dipped in the water! 


He finally got all 3 off at one time! HA 


Just chilling! 


Jesse and Ella


After a break...back to tubing! 


New Captain! 



Love this sweet man of mine!! 

Are you sick of lake pictures yet?? HA
