Friday Favorites {Fall Break Edition}

Happy Friday! Yay for the weekend, but BOO for the end of our Fall Break! We always enjoy our time off from reality! We are headed to Pigeon Forge today for an overnight adventure! Last night, Ben and I went to see Garth Brooks open up the Mercedes-Benz Stadium for concerts! Garth is a long time FAVORITE of Ben's! Be sure to check back here Monday for a recap of both fun events! 

So like most Friday's, I am sharing our FAVORITES from the week! 

Monday both kiddos got their bottom braces so I gave them an extra dose of Motrin! Not sure if Ian was feeling really good or just overly exhausted but I looked down and saw him doing this....

His silliness is always a FAVORITE! 

We laid low the rest of Monday evening eating chicken noodle soup for dinner. 

She requested to sleep in, have a movie marathon, and eat breakfast for dinner! Well, she slept till 8:30, we watched one movie, and we did have breakfast for dinner! 

Casper is one of our FAVORITE Halloween Movies! 

Lots of puppy snuggles...

Duke is SO rotten! 

I weighed in at Weight Watchers on Wednesday this week instead of Thursday....

Y'all I DID NOT want to go. I figured I would gain, I let something on social media put me in a sourpuss mood....I was just in a funk! But I put my big girl panties on and drove myself to WW. 

and guess what....I lost 0.4  
It's not a lot but a loss is a loss and I'll take it! 

The Wednesday meets are at 8:00 in the morning, so I got there about 7:45! I didn't stay for the meeting since I left the kids home sleeping.
When I was driving home....I noticed this beautiful sunrise! 

God's beauty of another day reminded me that I get to choose how I am going to go about my day and I decided in that moment to not let someone else ruin my day! #amen

I came home and had my FAVORITE breakfast! 
Vanilla Greek Yogurt, fresh berries, and 1 teaspoon of granola (3SP) 

Last weekend when we were at the Mall of Georgia, we popped into Vera Bradley and my FABULOUS mother in law bought me my new FAVORITE purse!  

I LOVE it! It's a great size! 

When we took our day trip to Jaemor Farms with my family, the kids talked Ben into buying this GIGANTIC pumpkin because they want to carve a ghost on it! HA 
However, carving pumpkins together is one of our FAVORITE fall activities!  

I worked a little in the shop this week! but mainly just on orders not a lot of new items! 

I will be adding my FAVORITE earrings to the shop soon! They make fantastic Christmas gifts! 

I also got a request to make these wine glasses for a friend's daughter that is getting proposed to tomorrow night....shhhhh! 

I have started 2 new beauty products this week. 

After listening to The Big Boo Podcast and listening to Melanie and Sophie rave about Rosehip Oil, I knew I had to try it! So far, it's a new FAVORITE! I use about 5-6 drops every morning and night! I drop them in my hand, rub my hands together, and then massage into my face and neck. I also use it on my cuticles. 
I also read an article a while back about the benefits of RAW Apple Cider Vinegar. Well, I started it as a toner. I have read that it helps with "dark spots". We will see. I'm willing to try anything. I picked up a bottle at my local grocery store. It's suppose to be the raw, unfiltered kind. Here is a bottle similiar to what I purchased. 

Thursday we spent the day with one of my very best friends, Talia! We meet her and 3 of her 4 boys at Cracker Barrel for a late breakfast! Then hung out at her house for a little while! 

Just 3 girls trying to survive in a house full of boys! HA 

Check back Monday for a recap of our fun this weekend!!
