I am back from my week long hiatus and I feel like it was so good for me! I have recently started to let the blogging “game” get to me (need more page views, more likes, more comments, more blah blah blah) and I forgot why I started this blog in the first place. I started this to document my life and to have a place to express some creativity. I don’t want to let any of that other stuff matter. I would elaborate more…but I think Christina explained it the best in her post, here. However, after my week off I feel very refreshed and ready to get back to the basics with this space and not let anything get in the way!
Let’s start with some Friday favorites!!
First of all, how pretty is that new print on our mantel? It’s from Kate at Bright Eyes Lettering and she free handed it! Can you believe that? I would love to have gorgeous handwriting like that! Anyways, she is so generously giving one away to my Instagram followers so head over there to enter!
How cute are these Halloween treats?! I love them all but I think the donuts are my favorite! I’ll definitely have to recreate a couple of these with Grey this month! I think he would love the spiders.
I have this color on my nails right now and it’s for sure a new favorite!
I loved this article on responding to your children in non hurtful ways. It put a lot into perspective and has me thinking about how I handle certain situations with Grey.
These infant costumes from Target are seriously killing me right now!!! The owl, garden gnome, elephant, and pumpkin are my favorites! What are your kiddos dressing up as? I’m about 75% sure about what I want Grey to be…but I’m still kind of deciding!
This homemade pumpkin spice latte looks amazing!!
These little hair clips are making me want a baby girl! PS I love everything by Cat & Jack!
23 Ordinary Objects That Are Cleverer Than You Think. I want to try #9!!
I love, love, LOVE this kitchen table!! I want one like this so bad!
A shocking article about how much sugar is in our every day staple food items! You guys, I recently started the Whole 30 plan (more on that next week), so I was really reading the labels at the grocery store…and there was added sugar in chicken broth. Chicken broth!!!! Why? What’s the point? It’s not necessary!!! It’s so disturbing and it’s no wonder why the majority of us are addicted to the stuff!
I’m also eyeing some new silverware and this set is interesting! I wonder how they would hold up in the dishwasher…
And another quiz! This one guesses your age based on something that only makes sense to…Buzzfeed? Anyways, I got 46!!! Let me know your answer in the comments!
I hope you all have a good weekend!!
