Friday Favorites

Hello friends! I hope you all had an amazing week.  The sickies have seem to have taken over our home this week which has been no fun for anyone.  Happy Back to School, right?? 


Can I get an Amen to drive thru's when you have sick kiddos?  Currently wishing Target had one....LOL!

It's Friday though and looking forward to hopefully the babies getting well this weekend.  In typical Friday Fashion, I am linking up with a few of my favorite bloggers for a little Friday Favorites recap.

All joking aside, this little guy gave us a bit of a scare! Both kids came down with this crazy virus where they were fine one minute, and then spiking a fever the next.  Nicholas came down with a 104.4 fever Sunday night and was suddenly extremely lethargic.  We decided to drive him to the Cleveland Clinic Pediatric ER to be safe.  He gave us a good scare but thankfully with this virus, it left almost as quickly as it came.

This one came down with Illness #2 on Wednesday.  She had the horrible fever virus last week and now has a nasty cough, laryngitis, and a low grade fever.  I am keeping her home from school again today as she spent all last night coughing with barely any rest.

Somehow with all of these illnesses circling around here, both kids managed to make their picture days this week.

and this handsome guy on Thursday.  I may be biased but I think they both looked adorable:)

In spite of this Mama going slightly nuts with all of the illnesses, I did manage to buy a few cute items on Jane.com (read about my obsession with Jane.com here) and a few other on line clothing boutiques. 


I have had my eye on this darling Utility Vest in Olive for weeks now.  Jane.com offers this deal every few days so if you happen to miss it, it should come back.   The key to success is to download their app and stalk the daily previews.  Ha!


I also purchased this striped tunic to go with my new favorite vest.  


And these adorable booties in taupe to complete the outfit.  I also picked up this awesome iPhone stand to use for Live Streaming videos with my business.


How fun is that?  It clamps to anything! Love :)

Jeff and I are headed to Vegas for a much needed anniversary trip next wee and wanted to spruce up my Fall wardrobe a bit.  It's been YEARS since the two of us have been to Vegas and I couldn't be more excited!


I purchased this top in black, it will be perfect for walking the Vegas Strip during the day, along with this darling crystal statement necklace that Hi Sugarplum wore earlier this week.  You can purchase it  from Accessory Concierge at 20% off using the coupon code REDBOOK20.



Next week is going to be a fun mail week, eek!  I can't wait to show you once it all comes in.

In other news, this saying was on my heart this Summer as I coined this as the official mantra for my "Summer of Rest".  I needed to step away from a few things and fully concentrate on enjoying my family and the amazing weather.  It felt great to clear my head for a few months and to focus on what truly mattered.  I am SO glad I did because it brought me to my next chapter in life and I couldn't be more excited for what's to come.  Stay tuned for an exciting announcement in the next week!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!
XOXO

  1. I love that quote about the drive-thrus! Couldn't be more true. I'm loving the cold shoulder look right now and you can never go wrong with stripes and plaid! So cute.
