It's time for some favorites!

Hey, Friday! Well, we made it! Our first official week of school and everyone is still smiling and happy. The state fair opens today, my hubby has a football game tonight, Jake has a game tomorrow and both the Huskies and Seahawks play this weekend. Woot! Oh, and did I mention the weather is #perfection!
Hello, fall!
I'm excited to share a few favorites with you this week.


Have you seen these great snack packs from Costco? They come in a set of four for just over $4. A steal, if you ask me! They are great to throw in kids lunches at the last minute, or to send with Jake to football practice. I don't feel like I'm feeding him junk and empty calories!


Apparently, Starbucks changed up its Pumpkin Spice flavor this year, and I'm not gonna lie, it's A-MAZING! If you are a pumpkin lover, you've got to try it out! I gave up coffee creamer and flavors last May, but every once in a while, treat myself. Yesterday, the girls and I took a walk to Starbucks and I ordered an iced coffee with the pumpkin spice flavor. One of the best drinks I've had, yet!


This ticket!! Eeeek!!!! I got an email yesterday that I've earned a free trip to "Summit", which is the national Beachbody convention, next July!! I'm beyond excited, as the event has been sold out, and the only way to go, at this point, is to earn the trip! This company has changed me, completely! It's changed my body, and it's changed our financial status. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE teaching, but this is something that I can do, in addition, that gives our family SO MUCH flexible spending/savings. I love how God provides in the most unexpected ways!


Um, could they be any cuter? I'm counting them (and these princess costumes) as a favorite! This week, I've gotten to spend more uninterrupted quality time with my girls, now that school is back in session. I'm cherishing that time, because I know it will go quickly! Molly is in morning preschool (while I'm at school), so we have our afternoons together. And I love it. They are fun, spunky, hilarious, chatty and oh so sweet! We do girly things, like paint our nails and play barbies.....but we also jump on the trampoline, take walks and go on the swings. My favorite job of all time is being a mom. Nothing better in the world!


This quote. I saw this on Instagram this week and immediately screen shot it. It speaks so much truth. We are quick to judge in life, but if we truly knew that background and heart of people, I think we would be more willing to give them grace. This is going to be my mission, especially as a teacher, this year. Everyone has a story and everyone's story deserves to be heard. 

With that, happiest BLUE Friday to you, friends! We are dressing in our Seahawks gear today and getting ready for a fun and full weekend!


  1. Those snack packs look perfect - I love how they come in a pack! Congrats on winning that ticket - how exciting!!

  2. First of all you have the cutest kids ever!

    Also, how do you think the iced coffee with pumpkin spice flavor tastes compared to the iced pumpkin spice latte? Do you know the difference? I usually get a tall iced PSL with nonfat milk and no whipped cream. I'm wondering if I should be better and switch to what you get. :)

    Love your blog!


  3. Those are great snack packs! And congrats on your ticket to summit...that's a great accomplishment!! Your last that. So true! Have a super weekend!
