I'm slacking on the blog lately and feel like I'm barely keeping my head above water these days. Between football season, a trip to Cali, soccer, swimming, toddler gym, teaching, and several other activities at school, it's been a crazy month. And it's not looking to slow down until the beginning of November.
But I love it and I wouldn't change it for the world. My kids are happy and healthy and that's what really matters.
So....on to my Friday favorites. Wow. So many things are my favorite right now. Can I give a little shout out for scarves?!
I love them. And if it was acceptable to wear them every day from now until March, I probably would. Yesterday, I wore one of my favorite Pashmina scarves (a bridesmaid gift from a friends' wedding), to school. Paired with the mustard colored skinnies from my last Stitch Fix box and a cute polka dot long-sleeved shirt from Old Navy. A fun, fall outfit.
Cake pops. Need I say more?? Molly and I love the pink ones from Starbucks, but we attended a wedding in California last weekend, where they had a ton of cake pops. My sister and I were in heaven!!! Sugar addiction runs in our family, I think. ;-)
Side note: We didn't plan to both wear black. And, in case you are wondering, we were both in heels, our feet got tired, and my flip flops were in the hotel room with sleeping children. I didn't want to wake them up to dig around for them...so instead I went barefoot at the reception. Because I'm classy like that. And thankfully, the bride and groom are such great friends they didn't care one bit! ;-)
How could I do a Friday favorites without mentioning our beloved Seahawks. Forget about the fact that we won the Super Bowl last year. Alright, how could you forget. But, they have the MOST AMAZING quarterback ever. A classy, Christian man, who provides so much service and inspiration to our community. Thank you Russell Wilson for changing the face of sports in Seattle.
Check them out on Monday Night Football this week. Go HAWKS!!!
And finally, I want to talk about these workout capris from Target. They are amazing!!! I've had a million different types of workout pants in the past, but these are hands down my favorite. They are thick, super comfortable and flattering. The waist doesn't squeeze, leaving excess skin <ahem> hanging over. I probably wear them more than I should, that's just how much I love them.
I looked on Target's website to provide you the link, but can't find them. They are in stores though. Just check out the active wear section. Trust me, they are amazing. You won't be disappointed! The Zella jacket is from Nordstrom and I love it, too!
And while I'm showing you a picture of myself in the gym parking lot, I thought I'd share my gem of a status update from yesterday. True story.
To all of the lovely patrons of the YMCA, my deepest apologies for my 2-year old's massive tantrum. I didn't allow her to get fruit snacks out of the vending machine, which resulted in her throwing herself on the floor in hysterics, me having to get her brothers out of swim lessons early, and somehow dragging her and her 3 siblings out to the car.
Who needs a workout class when you've got an unreasonable, flailing toddler?!? If I make it through football season in one piece, it will be a true miracle.
Just keepin' it real friends. Being a mom is tough sometimes. So much love to those of you going through this season of your life. That's why we have to lift each other up instead of compare, criticize and compete.
Have a fantastic weekend!
