Friday Favorites | Festival Time

What a week!
Let's dive right into it!

My very first Erin Condren life planner arrived late last week and I love it!
I love the color, the size, the free pens & goodies!
It already is my favorite planner ever and I don't get to start using it until January!
Big mistake!
If you are ordering for the first time --- get the additional months so you can start using it now.
Oh, and click this link to get $10 off your order :)

 Festival time is also one of my favorite times of the year :)
The Lexington Blueberry Festival was going on over the weekend so we swung by for some goodies!

 I totally forgot to take a picture while X was playing this game!
He threw a few darts and was able to pop a balloon!
 He picked out his prize and went with the red chili pepper guy! lol!

 Then we made our way over to the food vendors to pick up the best dang sandwich around!
 That grilled mac-n-cheese with pulled pork is AMAZING!!!
It is my favorite food at the festival!
I must learn to recreate it!

X said he wanted to ride the ponies before we headed home so we decided to go for it.

 He pouted every moment of the ride :(
Grr! Not his favorite moment of the week for sure!

He loved it just 2 years ago!
Speaking was this two years ago already???

We piled back into the car with our treats and headed home to pig out!
No that food isn't all for me!
We shared it all :)

 Of course not before X talked his dad into buying him this $10 blow up plane.
Not my favorite thing, but he loves it!
And to my disbelief, X hasn't managed to pop it yet!

 The amazing grilled mac-n-cheese with pulled pork sandwich :)
 A yummy blueberry fry pie with blueberry topping :)
 And X wanted in on the fun, so he took a pick of his funnel cake with my phone.

On Friday night we picked up our favorite pizza and called it a night!

Mic and I also managed to put up our new mailbox on Friday as well :)
 And after living with my refrigerator in the middle of the kitchen for almost two weeks, it is now in its place!
That is a favorite for sure!

This guy is definitely one of my favorites, but boy does he keep me on my toes!
I have a feeling I have a class clown on my hands :(

My dad and step mom came down to help me paint the old house and get it ready to FINALLY put up for sale.
We grabbed some dinner after a day of work at a local golf course in town.
Watching my dad and X interact together is always a favorite time for me :)

Another long day of working on the house and running errands meant grabbing dinner on the go.
My favorite fast food place is also my favorite Ohio chili place - Skyline Chili!

The boys each got their hair cut and then it was home to for baths and bed.

Thursday was X's last day at his daycare/preschool after 3 years.
While I loved how great all those girls have been to X, I know it is time to move on.
We had orientation/meet the teacher last night at his new school.
 Excited to see his new school and teacher :)
I am so excited for him to start at his new preschool!
I really hope this is a great year for him!

And that my friends is a wrap! lol!
A week worth of favorites!

What were your favorite moments of the week?

Don't forget to check out who I was in high school!

Also, Sarah @ Foxy's Domestic Side are going to be doing a hair challenge of sorts in September.
Nothing too crazy, just style your hair for 5-7 days (hopefully in 5-7 different ways) and then we will write a post about it.
If you are interested in joining the fun, shoot me an email or comment below to find out more info :)

And last, but certainly not least.
Linking up with these fab ladies below.
Happy Friday!


  1. I've had an Erin Condren planner for the past year and I just couldn't get on board with how small each day is {of course I write big} but everyone else is obsessed with them so I think it's just a me issue ha! OMG all that food, I loveeeee all of it and my stomach immediately started growling haha.

    Linds @ not a mom

  2. I just got my Erin Condren planner too....I am slowly beginning to love it. Also, now I'm hungry, that's some drool-worthy food you got there! Have a great weekend!

  3. Wow! everything looks great! From the planner to the mac n cheese pulled pork sandwich!

  4. oh shoot, forgot the mention the hair challenge, must do that on Monday! I love your weekend, and everyone seems to mention that skyline chili place...I was thinking of the graphic we can make...but nothing comes to mind...a brush, and hair pins, lol! I am NOT that creative...or am I? haha..

    1. OH and I can't wait to see how you decorate your planner, I'm always so envious of everyone who has one, but I feel like I would be cheating on my Franklin if I ever changed!

  5. ERIN CONDREN FOREVER!!! :) :) :) And seriously I am trying to lose weight and I now officially want EVERY.SINGLE.FOOD.ITEM you posted about loL!
